Dristi: A soft gaze, focus or awareness that keeps you attentive to what your body is doing in relation to your breath and your mind.
It tells that the trataka on the nose tip (nasagra dristi) reduces mental tensions (kleshas) and trataka on the eyebrow centre (bhrumadhya dristi) facilitates attainment of khechari - a higher yoga practice.
Look to nasagrai (nose) dristi and breathe deeply for five full breaths. Relax your shoulders and, working with the directional energy of uddiyana bandha, continue to lengthen the space between your pubic bone and sternum with each inhalation.
