How to concentrate/focus on studies? Also, how to enjoy learning /education? Here is our response and guidance on this very popularly asked question.
(This was in response to an email from a student)
Important is to keep your mind busy in good things that you love to do. Here as you love studying (which is a great aspect of life), you may also like reading some other books (other than school course). Books on spirituality and even human psychology may interest you). See, spirituality is for everyone. Because every one is a spirit (a Soul). Spirituality is merely the understanding of the real ''I'' - Who am I? When one knows the self, one finds living the life is easy. This is fundamental and essential.

How To Increase Concentration Power?
The simple answer is learn meditation. Many souls in world today are realising the importance of meditation in their life. However, the meditation which they do is not the accurate way to obtain the purpose. In fact, it is Raja Yog (as said in Hindi). Raja means 'King' and Yog means 'connection'. a connection with God such that the soul (I or me) become a 'king' of the senses.

When we conquer our own mind like this, the gates to limitless success opens. Because the only obstacle in the path to the goal is your own mind, and the negative, lethargic and waste thoughts which it create. When your mind becomes your best friend, life becomes easy, enjoyable and rewarding.

Advice on Studying
We do advise you to study during night or early morning time (2 am to 6 am time) because it is peaceful during the early morning hours, and thus very helpful to focus/concentrate on whatever we do, and also to remember.
