तत्प्रतिषेधार्थमेकतत्त्वाभ्यासः॥३२॥

“The practice of concentration on a single subject [or the use of one technique] is the best way to prevent the obstacles and their accompaniments.” –Swami Satchidananda. This aphorism suggests undertaking a regular and daily practice of meditation to calm down the mind and to prevent the negativity and indifference that always prevents our following a disciplined one-pointed direction in life. It also refers to finding that one singular vocation or hobby or service that completely grabs our attention and interest.
