Question
sir, how can i make my mind strong?
please help.

Answer
Hi,

The first step in making the mind strong is to follow dharma. This means you must always be righteous. In case you do not know whether a particular action is right or not, you must listen to the elders in the family.

The second step is to align your thoughts - words - action. You must not say something which you do not mean. Your action should be in line with thoughts.

To implement the above, you need to maintain a TO DO LIST. Everyday when you get up in the morning (or before going to bed on the previous day) you must write down the list of tasks that you will do during the day.

You must not (on your own) do any tasks that is not listed in the To DO LIST. For example, when you go for shopping you should have listed what you intend to buy. You should not buy any item that is not listed earlier. 'I felt like buying this' or 'There is a big discount on this item' etc cannot be reasons for buying. You should restrict yourself to what is in your shopping list.

If the mind is allowed to get influenced by the world, it will progressively becomes weaker. If your actions are in line with the predetermined plan, then your mind will become strong.

Thanks for asking this question. If you need any further clarifications, please do ask.
