AUM 358-369. Following the talk "Life Means What?" the students at the Inter-American University, San Juan, Puerto Rico put these questions to Sri Chinmoy. Agni (Mr. José Casanova) has recorded and transcribed the entire Inter-American University program.
Question: What is the best point we can use to fix our gaze for concentration?
Sri Chinmoy: It depends on the individual. Some people find it easier to look at the flame of a candle and concentrate, while others find it easier to look at a beautiful flower and concentrate. Still others prefer to look at the rising sun and concentrate. So if the individual gets a kind of inner joy when concentrating on a particular object, he should concentrate on that particular object in order to achieve his goal.
