Concentration a Guide to Mental Mastery
In the late 1960's and
early 70's there was a phrase that was made popular which went, "Tell it
the way it is." It came about as a result of the falsehoods which
society was being inundated with from all sides of life. People, and
especially the young people of that time, were tired of being lied to.
In this book, published over four decades ago, Mouni Sadhu "tells it the
way it is" in regard to the art and discipline of meditation. He pulls
no punches and does not try to sugar coat the cold, hard facts about the
development of the ability to concentrate and its necessity in being
able to meditate properly.
Mouni Sadhu is the religious name taken by a Westerner who studied with
Sri Ramana Maharshi, a famous and much beloved Indian spiritual teacher
who passed away at the mid-point of the twentieth century. The word "mouni"
means "silent" and "sadhu" refers to a wandering holy man of the Hindu
faith. Though the author had tried many paths on the route to
self-realization, it wasn't until he came upon his Indian teacher Sri
Ramana that he managed to successfully break through the ego's hard
exterior and into the infinity of being. He is therefore a bona fide
spokesman for the truths which he recollects in this book.
Written in a simple and easily understandable style, Concentration is a
classic among books on the art of meditation. Published, as it was,
before our fascination with things "New Age," it dispels many of the
myths and misconceptions that have arisen and been promoted out of that
movement. And for this reason alone, for the preservation of the truth,
it is worth its weight in gold.
First and foremost among the myths it dispels is the idea that
developing concentration is really of no consequence in the practical
application of the art of meditation, as some so-called New Age gurus
would have people believe. This is like saying that for an automobile to
function properly it doesn't need gasoline! Without the ability to
concentrate, our efforts at meditation will result only in going
nowhere, in spinning our wheels in an unending rut.
Concentration is the cornerstone upon which our ability to engage
ourselves in true meditation is based. Without its proper development it
is as though we are in a car without a steering wheel. We have no way of
directing ourselves toward our ultimate goal.
A second myth that is dealt with, which has been promoted in recent
years, is that it is not important to be able to develop within oneself
the ability to quiet the mind of all extraneous thoughts. This is the
subject of Chapter Fourteen wherein is given a method of beginning to
develop this ability to quiet the mind. In his usual straightforward
way, Mouni Sadhu states quite unequivocally, "The key to success in this
study is just the losing of interest in uncontrolled thinking. With that
key you may open the golden gate, from which you expect so much. Without
the key, there is no purpose in even beginning the exercises."
Mouni Sadhu gives a powerful presentation of all the aspects leading up
to the attainment of the ability to concentrate, structuring the book
into four sections. The first seven chapters deal with the definition,
method, use, and roll of concentration in a spiritual search. The next
seven chapters cover the psychological preliminaries and the keys to
successful use of the techniques (which themselves are outlined in the
third section of seven chapters) for developing concentration. The last
chapter, Twenty-Two, deals with what he calls "guided intuitional
knowledge, also called the wisdom of the Self, which is the ultimate aim
of concentration." Here, whether you are a beginner or an old hand in
working with the mind, is a compendium of inspiring information in the
practical experience of the higher states of consciousness, useful in
helping one to corroborate one's own experience with someone who has
In this slender book, Mouni Sadhu manages to cover a great deal of
important ground for the person interested in developing his mental
faculties. Though he states at the outset that such abilities are not
easily won, he does encourage the reader to follow his own inclinations
regarding the level of commitment he is willing to make. He stresses not
getting ahead of oneself, but to take it one step at a time. This is all
one need do to have success with these exercises.
