I am often subject to fatigue and torpor. When it comes to trying to study or focus on the breath, I feel far too restless and nervous to focus my mind. What can be done to improve the situation?
Venerable Dagpo Rinpoche:
Meditation is a training that requires perseverance and regularity. In the early stages, it is natural for the mind to seem even more restless than before. In reality, he is no more agitated, but we discover him under an aspect which until then we were unaware of.
Before starting the training even in concentration, it is necessary to take the time to carefully study the method to be applied next. It's important to know how to do it right from the start. Otherwise, you risk forming bad habits that are difficult to overcome.
