Overcome the Distractions of Youth

Spoken by Supreme Master Ching Hai
Helsinki, Finland • May 30, 1999
(Originally in English) Videotape #663

Q: I'm a student, and I've lost my motivation and ability to concentrate. How can I get this back? With the Quan Yin Method maybe? I can't really start with my studies yet, and am suffering very much. Only You, Supreme Master Ching Hai, can help me and other students as well.

M: When you start to grow up in your teenage life, there will be many distractions. That's why it's difficult for you to concentrate. But you can also practice a little bit of meditation.

If you want the Quan Yin Method, that's fine. If you don't, then you can practice a simple method of concentration to help you. Also, try not to watch too many distracting movies. And try not to look around at beautiful women or handsome men too much.

After you finish your studies, of course you can do anything you want. Think of your parents and your benefactor, who have worked very hard to pay for your studies, and try to fulfill your obligations. Because the student time of your life is actually the best time; and later you will regret it. Tell yourself you must finish the studies in front of you first, and everything else will come later. Be determined to finish.
