How can Memory be sharpened ?
If something is read with full concentration, it is remembered for a long time.
There are many people who are unable to remember what they have read for a long time. One should remember to read for a long time, for this the mind should be concentrated and read. There is a story of Swami Vivekananda in this regard.
According to the reference, Swami Vivekananda went on a journey with his Guru Bhai. Swamiji loved to read. Wherever he could find good books, he used to read them. In any new place, he must search for the library.
In one city he saw many books in a library that he wanted to read. Swamiji and his Gurubhai stayed for a few days in the same city to read books. Gurubhai used to bring him new books in Sanskrit and English from the library. Swamiji used to read those books and return them after a day.
Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man.
It went on like this for several days. The librarian was surprised to see this. He asked Swamiji’s Gurubhai if you take so many new books just to see. If you want to see them, I show them here. Why do you need to lift so much weight everyday?
Swamiji’s Gurubhai said, Brother, as you understand, there is nothing like this. My Gurubhai reads all these books seriously. Only then do I come here to return them.
Hearing this, the librarian said that if your words are true, then I definitely want to meet him. Gurubhai asked Swamiji to bring him to the library.
The next day Gurubhai reached the library with Swamiji. Swamiji told the librarian that sir, don’t be surprised. Not only have I read these books, but I also remember everything I read. Saying this Swamiji returned some books and recited some of them with page numbers to the librarian.
The librarian was astonished to hear all this. He asked Swamiji the secret of such a good memory.
Swamiji had said that if something is read with full concentration, then the thing read is remembered for a long time. But, for this one more thing is necessary that our brain should have good holding capacity. One should meditate daily to increase concentration and holding power. Must read and practice.
