Wandering Mind Syndrome

Post Author: Japagroup    Date: 2007-12-13 12:13:51
During Japa today I struggled with keeping my mind from wandering here, there and's a daily struggle and I usually close my eyes, cup my hand to my ear (so I can hear properly) and just focus on hearing the Mantra.

Sometimes this doesn't work though, so I use my last weapon to defeat the mind....reading the mantra whilst I chant. This works everytime and keeps my mind right on the's like a big stick or a slipper, beating the mind into submission "Stay on the Mantra....don't wander off you rascal".

The combination of hearing myself properly and reading along has helped greatly with improving my inattention and continues to save me from WMS - Wandering Mind Syndrome.
