Balika Satish Tawade | Megha Madhukar Doiphode
Abstract: The prevailing systems of education are failing to develop the full brain potential of every student, due to which education is unable to realize its highest goals. We know from experience that when we are distracted, stressed, depressed or anxious we function far less effectively. This is because the regions of the brain that gather and process information are working poorly at such times. It is primarily a problem with attention but we don?t have to be stressed to notice that much of the time we are not focused on the things we need to be focused on. Learning mindfulness not only helps us to function better under pressure but also helps us to utilize our time better, to focus, and to foster a growth mindset which is more conducive to learning. The science of Mantra Chanting is based on optimizing the channelization of energy through our being. Regular practice of meditation and mantra chanting is bound to yield wonderful results, irrespective of one?s faith or religion.
