The experiment result was not so positive. Although i was thinking and reciting on this verse and was trying not to think anything else, even then when my eye fell on something different thoughts arise. For example when i saw a car, immediately my father and family came to my mind. When i saw a mosque, it reminded me someone else. I saw a science park bus it reminded me Tushar bhai. Things like that. And also different thoughts came without a clue.
I was amazed to discover how visual clues are so closely associated with different memories of our life and known peoples. What i learned from Buddhist meditation helped me to concentrate more. I was aware of my passing thoughts (as if i was watching my sub-conscious thoughts from above acting as a separate being above my thoughts), letting them go and then again go back to my original goal. In 10 minutes walk i guess there were almost 20 or more different thoughts passed through my mind. How weak is my concentration (pls pray for me) !!
Oh, Lord bless my mind so that i can have crystal clear concentration while i remember You.
