Mind the Mind
Q: I am of 14 yrs. I want to ask, while praying to god I think to pray Durga but my mind get diverted to another god, if I start praying to another, I have a same thinking?
A: Well Gaurav, No. 1, your mind is just behaving like a monkey as a mind is usually & you just need to do some pranayama before you focus upon, praying upon some God or Goddess, some Devi, Devata, Gaytri or Hanuman. Just learn the pranayam that’s a deep breathing which will work very well for you. May be do nadi shodhana & just chat OM. Don’t try to bring any picture of any God or Goddess; any image in your mind & just focus on your breath and do chanting of the OM mantra. May be from my website, you can get the CD called “Pranav” that will help you greatly.
So the confusion will not go until & unless you first select with which teacher you wish to be & then follow what that teacher says.
