7. POWER OF MEMORY-2.
In early boyhood, the power of grasping in the mind is very marked.
But, there is no power of understanding.
In 16, 18, 20, the power of understanding becomes manifest.
The power of retentive memory is also great in this age.
The mind becomes settled only after 30. Below 30, there is much Chanchalatva (wandering nature).
A man below 30in the vast majority of casesis not able to think and decide for himself.
He has no power of judgement.
After 45, power of grasping begins to decline.
Memory also begins to decline.
He has power of retention for what he has learnt before.
He cannot learn new sciences.
Brahmacharya helps a lot to develop the power of retention and various other psychic powers.
