1. What is Trataka?
Trataka is one of the most uncelebrated yogic art. Trataka involves gazing with eyes. This may seem simple but when practised it makes us sharp sighted and bestows us with great power of concentration at its best. The meaning of Trataka means to gaze continuously. This practice is found in the yogic scripture Hatha Yoga Pradipika.
What is written is, Looking intently with an unwavering gaze at a small point until tears are shed, is known as trataka by the acharyas.
