I hope no one minds, but i have taken a quote from another thread to start a new thread... i didn't want to get two unrelated topics confused. but how do we still our wandering minds long enough to understand the shabad in the first place? i've been having a lot of problems with concentration lately (for various reasons). gurbani tells me that with naam, i willl have no problem concentrating... but i can't concentrate well enough to even meditate properly at the moment... i find that when i do paath, i have to repeat sections over and over again because i'm reciting without even realizing what i'm saying. any suggestions?
