Q1. I am little bit confused what is difference between mind and brain. Could you please elaborate on both these terms? A1. It is a very good question, first let me tell you that mind & brain are absolutely different entities. But this is the biggest misconception prevailed that they are same. We may take an example of a computer where CPU can be compared with our brain & the operating system within this brain can be compared with our mind. If brain is hardware, then mind is the software that works upon our overall personality. Mind is abstract, i.e. we cant touch it. It can be defined as stream of thoughts whose presence can be felt whenever we think or memorize. We are blessed with this unique, creative, powerful human brain that no other creature on this planet possesses. We have been given 5 super powers or you may say 5 sense organs & each sense organ performs vital function but even if we compare brain with these sensory organs, we will find our mind to be ruling over our body. It is made up of neural circulatory where billions of neurons are connected in complex structure. Every neuron is immense powerful. Neurologists are still unable to interpret the energy that a single neuron carries with it. Mind power for them is still the greatest mystery. Q2. What is the power of mind? A2. There has been no one on this earth who can explain the power of mind because its powers dont have any limit. They are exponential. It is super computing power. People since ages have displayed its multiple powers. Our history is full of description about our past glorious heroes who did miracles with their mind power. Flying in air, to disappear, coming of weapon on reciting any particular mantra were childs play for them and still today, it just needs a direction, guide or you can say an alchemist, who can help us to reach the pinnacle of success, who can teach us how to control mind. The person who invokes power of mind is always the man who believes in self restraint taught in our ancient Vedas. I have tried my best to throw light on such Vedic teachings in my memory book. Q3. How it can be enhanced? A3. We have hidden treasure in our ancient literature & if we unlock this treasure, we can create wonders. I have designed some methods, tools that are purely scientific and based on our Vedic knowledge. Some are based on our belief system also that play pivotal role in enhancing memory power; which is the greatest power of mind. We cant even think about our survival without memory. We can reach to any heights if we possess powerful memory. There are certain obstacles that hinder our mind power. I have elaborated on

the methods in detail in my memory book. We can evolve a powerful &magnetic personality only if we have strong mind power. Q4. What is the need & importance of Mind Power? A4. In one line if Im to describe, I would say that mind is the creator and it is the destroyer also. As I have described earlier, existence is almost impossible without mind power. It is the biggest weapon that can lead us to victory in this cut throat competitive era. We cant do any activity without mind. This is the greatest asset that distinguishes us from every other creature who just has brain; not mind. This power makes us extra ordinary being & we can do miracles with proper usage of our mind power. Q5. What are the key areas where we can apply mind power? A5. Our whole life is based on mind power. We need it in every sphere of life. There are some important key areas where it has best manifestation. If we see the lives of students, their success in academics is directly linked with strong mind power. Memory is the greatest power of mind. They can memorize anything in their academies which in turn, boost their grades. In fact, it is a boon for everyone; may be any businessman, professional or housewife. Other powers like concentration, soft skills are based totally on mind power. Today every company prefers people with good soft skills. All of us start trembling with fear by name of interview where soft skills play crucial role. If we have strong mind power, then we can face any interview with great ease. Similarly, today releasing stress is one of major problems &the solution lies in powerful mind. When we see problems in our lives, we tend to think like pessimistic but again; it can be overcome with the greatest asset called mind power. Our mind has a miraculous weapon called belief system that can be strengthened with our NLP which is equipping our sub conscious mind with positive auto suggestions. It is the only method to change old behavioral patterns. Q6. What is the secret of your success? A6. I firmly believe that always choose the work you love &youll never have to work a day in your life. Your profession will become your love. The day I determined to overcome my poor memory; my negative psychic impression &thoughts, I introspected & pondered over how I could improve. I learnt many lessons and started working on the mind power concept. I read many books on psychology, human mind and the biggest motivational factor behind my transformation was the guidance of enlightened and self realized soul, Saint Asaram ji Bapu. The continuous recitation of the Sarasvatya mantra given by Him helped me to be what I m today. I believed myself & became passionate to be successful which acted as a catalyst in quickening the process of success. Q7. What is the Guru mantra to enhance mind power? A7. Waxing mind power is the need of the hour because we only use a small part of the vast treasure as were unaware with its potential, but if we learn how to enhance our mind power, every impossible will become possible for us. The best way is to adopt dynamic life style where we focus on how to live, not how much to live. There are some enemies of mind power such as stress, negative thoughts, feeling of being inferior or superior, jealousy and the list is endless. But these enemies can be easily overcome with the help of healthy life style, regular exercises, pranayams, vegetarian diet, positive thinking, meditation, strong belief system. In todays scenario, one is busy from early morning till the time of sleeping but all are static activities. Dynamism is missing from our lives. We should live our life with feeling it shouldnt b mechanic or

robotic. Today, we dont have time for our family members; pleasure, happiness is missing from our lives. We are engaged in blind race for money. But weve to overcome all these obstacles to enhance our mind power. Q8. What are the functions of mind? A8. There are two vital functions that are performed with the help of mind. These are thinking and memorizing. If we talk about thinking, mind provides such a mental screen, platform where thoughts comes. Thoughts are flashed in photographic form on our mind platform. Our mind has power to think on various subjects simultaneously. It is so surprising our mind can stimulate multiple thoughts at same time. Our Vedas also emphasize that the deep impressions found on our mind or mental platform is called our memory. Since our childhood, all impressions get stored in our mind and we can recall them within fractions of a second. To retain this memory is the pivotal function of our mind. Q9. What is the impact of lifestyle on our mind power? A9. I always maintain that a healthy life style results in healthy mind, soul & body. But in this fast life, people dont have time for themselves. Early in life, people give up their health to gain wealth; later, people give up some of their wealth to regain their health. But can we ever get those powers that we posses in youth? The answer is big no. Today, the youth is directionless; they get indulged in such activities that take away their vigor, youth. They have forgotten the concept of self restraint which is according to me, the key to success. I firmly believe in the slogan: Towards Vedas. There youll find all secrets to perfect body, mind & soul. Next, I would like to say that the junk food that our generation loves to eat; is hated by our body, because it gradually destroys the organs of our body resulting in diseases like cancer, TB etc. so, we should always prefer simple& pure vegetarian diet as it provides you with all the essential elements. Next, we should include exercise, pranayams, and yoga in our routine. All these things help us in getting healthy body for healthy soul. Meditation is the best weapon, provided, done under expert guru. I was fortunate to be in tutelage of such an alchemist that made me realize my true potential and turned me into gold.
