    I guess, u r not pushing urself hard. Why not try to observe your thoughts which you get, which interfere your attempts! Somehow I believe, mosquitos feel like biting more, if we give more attention to them!

    Welcome tejinder singh Ji!

    I am by no means an expert but before you try concentrating on naam maybe you should try some basic meditation techniques. A simple one is to sit with your eyes closed, head titled at a 45 degree angle and to focus only on your breathing. Another simple method would be to try right as you wake up (again focusing only on your breathing at first) since you are at the cusp of two different states of consciousness (sleep and wakefulness) you should be in a very receptive state (I think this is what is really meant by amrit vehla) to meditate.
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
