Tratak and Shambhavi Mudra – The View of the Absolute
Tratak (Yogic Gazing/Open Eyed Meditation):
This is one of the most simple and powerful practices to develop concentrative stability and meditative absorption. It purifies, activates and balances the brain, CNS and endocrine system. It helps to open and develop the Brow Chakra, tapas lokah and rudra granthi. All of which have to do with Divine Vision, single pointed focus, and the ability to consciously master the mind and thus live in a consistent state of conscious clarity, heal rapidly, purify karma and more easily achieve ones goals.
Shambhavi Mudra (View of the Absolute):
Once familiar with Tratak you can combine Tratak with Shambhavi Mudra. As you practice Tratak and you are focusing on the dot on the wall “outside” of you,
feel a magnetic pull and in-drawing feeling of your awareness and energy into the direct center of your brain. As your eyes are open and you are aware of the display of the visual and sensational phenomena “outside,” you are also absorbed in Awareness within. Maintain this inner absorption and awareness while continuing to practice Tratak.
Tratak and Shambhavi Mudra are one of the most powerful ways to develop the ability to remain “steady in the Light of Being,” to live in absorption in the Divine and to be able to “see through” whatever phenomena present themselves moment to moment. This increases the ability to take no-thing whatsoever to be “me” or “mine,” thus being able to let go of the mental, emotional karmic content and mind stuff of the “me’s story.” thus “burning” karma. Concentrative stability is the fundamental basis of self-mastery and all higher development. This technique is one of the most direct ways to develop in initial concentrative stability. Enjoy.
