The Power Of Undivided Attention

with Dandapani



In this episode of Wonder, Dandapani, a Hindu priest, joins Kalika Yap to talk about the impact of undivided meditation and focus. They discuss how important it is to learn and practice focus and concentration, and how it can transform your life through your relationships with other people and with yourself. Tune in now!

Key takeaways

  1. Concentration must be learned and needs to be practiced. If you don’t learn it and you don’t practice it, you won’t be good at it.
  2. Giving someone your undivided attention is one of the highest forms of love and respect.
  3. Your purpose in life should never be about someone or something.
