The specific objective of this course is to understand what concentration is, why it is so important, and to learn how to develop our powers of concentration through systematic training in meditation. Concentration completely determines the power and effectiveness of our spiritual practice, and the extent to which our mind is under control. Therefore, it is of paramount importance to our happiness and well-being, and greatly empowers our ability to benefit others.
