How to Improve Your Attention and Concentration

Brother Govindananda

Self-Realization Fellowship monk Brother Govindananda shares insights from the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda on the importance of learning to control the mind through deep attention and concentration — to achieve success in our everyday lives, and in particular with going deeper in our practice of meditation. “Scientific concentration means to gather all attention to a center,” Paramahansaji says, “by cutting off attention from its entanglements in outer objects of senses and the thoughts they rouse.” Brother Govindananda brings into this talk recent scientific discoveries that help us understand our natural ability to concentrate and focus the mind.

Recorded in March 2022 at the SRF Fullerton Temple, this talk highlights not only what paying greater attention can bring to our lives — but how to do it.
