Concentration and Meditation

Posted on | August 3, 2014 | 14 Comments

Concentration and Meditation SivanandaConcentration and Meditation was written by Swami Paramananda (1884–1940) and published in USA in 1912. He was a practitioner and teacher of vedanta. He was a pupil of the better known Swami Vivekananda and he became a member of the Ramakrishna order on his seventeenth birthday. A few years later he assisted in establishing the first vedanta center in USA. It still exists today. In Concentration and Meditation he outlines the fundamental mindset necessary in order to initiate meditation: 

“As long as we identify ourselves with conditions, we suffer ; but when we cease to identify ourselves with these passing conditions, we never really suffer.”

    Salutations to Swami Sivanadaji,
    I have gone through most of the books of Swamiji. Every sentence of every book is life-giving, full of energy. His writings are spiritual cure for all maladies.Everyone must read his books.

    I have seen many people horribly worried about their body due to some diseaseS or about relationship with others or relating to the achievement of any success or experiencing failures. READ SWAMIJI ONLY ONCE YOUR WHOLE LIFE WILL BE CHANGED FOREVER.
