      As you say, determination is of paramount importance in achieving
      positive results in any significant field of endeavour, not least of
      all meditation. Sri Chinmoy offers many inspiring approaches for his
      students to further develop their determination. Personally, I
      learnt to enhance my determination through participating in the
      walking races. These have provided many illumining insights into
      determination, and have helped me greatly in developing better
      focus in my spiritual journey.
