TRATAK MEDITATION IN PDF

The object may be seen on the outside, in your environment, or on the inside where it is pictured in your mind. The idea is that you naturally relax as your mind becomes quiet, since inner chatter and fleeting thoughts cease during meditation.

If your vision wanders, bring it back to the middle of the image again. Alternatively, you may choose to begin meditation with antaranga, going straight into internal attention instead of gazing at an external point.
