Thought of the day
An inspirational and spritual reading from a great sage.
Habitual study of abstract problems will result in a well-developed power for abstract thinking, while filppant, hasty thinking, flying at a tangent and jumping from one point to another will produce a restless ill-regulated mind. Study of philosophical works, right thinking, exercise of good and noble emotions, prayers and beneficient endeavours and, above all, regular and strenuous meditation, are the means to improve the mind. These activities bring about a rapid growth and evolution of the mental consciousness. Take down notes when you study a book on yoga or philosophy. This will help you in remembering the fundamental ideas. This itself is a kind of lower samadhi, as the mind is deeply occupied in pure sattva ideas. It will check the outgoing tendencies of the mind. The mind will move towards hte inner Self.
