The power of concentration manifests as focused attention and as a one pointed mind.” When you focus your mind, you conserve your energies and do not dissipate them on irrelevant thoughts or activities.

Concentration is purely a mental process. It needs an inward turning of the mind. It is not a muscular exercise. You should not fight and wrestle with the mind violently. When you concentrate on any object, avoid tension anywhere in the body or mind. Think gently of the object in a continuous manner. Do not allow the mind to wander away.
