Dandapani is a Hindu priest, speaker on self development and an entrepreneur. Of Sri Lankan ancestry, he grew up in Australia and after graduating university with a degree in Electrical Engineering he left it all behind to become a Hindu monk under the guidance of one of Hinduism’s foremost spiritual leaders of our time, Sivaya Subramuniyaswami. For 10 years he lived a life of serious personal discipline and training at his guru’s cloistered monastery in Hawaii.
When his vows expired seven years ago he chose to venture out into the world on his own. He made New York City his new home, determined to live and practice himself everything he teaches in the most invigorating and challenging city in the world. He works with a variety of individuals, companies and organizations around the world conducting training through workshops, retreats and exclusive coaching circles.

All this and more make him a much sought after speaker and coach on self development.
Awareness and Reaction
|View a web copy of this email |
Awareness and Reactions As events occur in life, most people react to them in an uncontrolled way. When this happens awareness gets drawn out and externalized. Their energies get externalized too, entangling itself with people and things around them. Before long they find themselves bound to the external world, and inner life seems non-existent. They live in a perpetual state of reaction, going from one experience to another with very little control over their lives. Most people aren’t even aware of this. It becomes, unfortunately, a very natural flow to them even though everything about it is unnatural to the soul.If you have enjoyed the post, please consider sharing it:

How to teach children to concentrate
The best way to teach children how to concentrate is for you to learn concentration and practice it yourself. Concentration is the ability for you to keep your awareness on one thing for an extended period of time. Parents struggle to teach concentration because they are not concentrated themselves. Children learn through examples — they watch you do something and they do it. If you learn and practice doing one thing at a time, your children will see this. Once you’ve created a lifestyle where you are very focused on doing one thing at a time, even on the mundane things, that’s when you start to teach your children concentration.
