Trataka meditation and its Divine powers is one the most curious topic in meditation. Trataka Meditation is an ancient form of yogic meditation that help us to cut from outer world and achieve thoughtless state. Trataka yogic gazing exercise is simple yet very powerful technique of meditation to achieve Hidden Divine Powers. Tratak is a type of meditation, where a person can sit and stare and focus continuously at a single point and focus on that point.
Trataka gazing meditation is enough to raise your energy level at your 3rd eye, enhancing your psychic abilities. You may experience high energy or heat at some of your body parts or on the whole body. This is due to your concentration and alignment of body mind soul spirit.
The intensity and effects of meditation will differ from person to person. It may depend on other factors like the state of mind of the person, spiritual level, acceptance at a soul level, concentration/ gazing ability, patience, and so on. That’s why people start experience different things.
You should never compare yourself with others or start practice with comparison. Sometimes the benefits may not be visible immediately, but with continuous practice, you will become a better person than before. Tratak activates your inner potential. The mind is always wavering and oscillating in multiple thoughts. When you continuously gaze at one object, the brain gets habituated to that object. The alpha brain waves increases and connection to the external world reduces.
There comes a point, where a mind is completely shut to an external environment and one becomes blank to all the thoughts. One may experience freedom from both time and space.
What is Trataka Meditation?
Tratak or Trataka meditation is generally taken to mean “spontaneous gazing on some points”. But is it enough to see a gazing, if this was the case, then usually in normal life every person who keeps staring at someone do Tratak gazing meditation.
The real meaning of Tratak is to be one with gazing object. In other words, if you understand this, then you have to stop the movement of thoughts and being one with object you use to gaze.
This is because the more the eyes see, the more thoughts arise in the brain. To some extent it is true that by controlling the movement of the eyes, we can also capture the flow of thought.
“Trataka Meditation is not only gazing on some object its actual practice happen within you. You can feel it by sudden trance state of thoughtless and zero thought state.
In Trataka Meditation Sadhana, when we gaze, first of all our thoughts and Brain activity is focused only on that point on which we are doing Trataka meditation. But this is possible only if you do not control the blinking and closing of the eyes.
Sometimes we forcefully keep our eyes open. This is not a part of practice and absolutely it is wrong.
For Trataka Meditation practice, first of all, open the eyes normally and look at the point till the eyes start blinking. When your eyelids start closing, let them close. By repeating the process over and over again, you will be able to open eyes for a long time period.
When this happens, suddenly the brain starts feeling thoughtless and lightheaded. If not, then understand that you are going in the wrong direction.

When to Do Tratak
Usually this question is in everyone’s mind that how much time should be given to Tratak practice in the beginning and for how many days do it. This question is because you are unaware of the experience in it in the beginning. If someone told you how long you want to achieve the state of bliss, would you like to enjoy within the time limit?
No, neither and that’s the similar for this, in the beginning, of course, we get upset with the change, but later we feel and experience infinite joy, then we will not be able to limit it to the time limit. Therefore, without worrying about the answer to this question, keep practicing as the time will increase as the pleasure increases.
- Best time of Trataka meditation: 4 AM to 6 AM and usually 2 hour before sunrise.
- Place to practice: basic practice like gazing on object (tree and other outer things) can be done at park but Trataka Meditation practice should be done in quit place where you can practice without any disturbance.
- Best object: you should start with Bindu Trataka Meditation (simple dot on a blank paper and hang it on wall)

Tratak or meditation what is better option?
If you observe deeply you will find out that both Tratak and meditation, they fulfil the same purpose. But just as there are different practice for each level, Trataka Meditation can be defined as an external meditation practice, because in this, by keeping the eyes open, we attain the same state which is done by closed eyes in meditation.
Success in Trataka Meditation Sadhana comes sooner than meditation because instead of stabilizing the mind, it has to focus in one place and that’s why we can give direction to the brain quickly. Whereas in meditation it is necessary to have a more stable and calm state of mind. Therefore, if your mind is restless and cannot stay in one place for a long time, then you can start with Tratak.
There are 2 types of Trataka practice. I will address antaranga Trataka (interior looking) and bahiranga Trataka (outside looking) and its reflective and purging advantages. Interior looking Trataka is based on practice on object with close eyes and outside looking Trataka is done with open eye gazing until it imprinted in mind.
Dangers of Tratak
Even we know how much beneficial Trataka meditation is but, we shouldn’t ignore its dangerous effect on our eyes, mental condition and other aspects. If you do it without proper knowledge you can suffer from vision-related problems, headaches, and anger and spiritual bypass related issue.
Kids below age of 8 years should not do Tratak. Above 8 years kids can do it with a guidance of guru or guardian.
People with serious eyesight issue shouldn’t do this practice. They can practice tree gazing practice at park or other silent place. If you have myopia (short-sightedness) issue then it’s better to practice with your glasses.
If you have Epilepsy disorder don’t do candle flame gazing meditation practice. Other dangerous are like alone, unable to understand what happen within practice time and feeling sad. Cut off from society and social activity. You have to keep all things within your daily life activity.
Trataka in Hath Yoga
It is accepted that to start the interaction of yoga, one should initially cleanse the body and the psyche. In the antiquated writings of Hatha Yoga (a part of yoga), there are six techniques leaned to achieve this decontamination. They are known as the ‘shatkarma’ or six activities.
Some of them include emptying saline water into your left nostril and eliminating it from the right nostril! Or on the other hand gulping a 30 feet in length piece of cotton fabric and afterward eliminating it out gradually!
In the event that that is making you mull over your arrangements to accomplish moksha, fret not, as there are other, less overwhelming, techniques for refinement as well.
One such strategy is called Trataka Meditation, in a real sense made an interpretation of, it intends to look. Tratak is an instrument to eliminate the unsettling influences of the psyche. It is a basic yet amazing asset. A professional of Tratak needs to fix his/her eyes on an Object. This article can be the fire of a light, candle, a Shiva Linga, or a dark dab on the divider.
This procedure utilizes the basic association between the Mind and the eye. This association has been all around recorded in clinical examinations. At the point when we fix our look on a specific object or point, without moving our body, our brain gets steady. This is the hidden guideline of Tratak which helps in decreasing wanderer considerations.
With ordinary practice, over the long run, stray contemplations become immaterial. It is fitting that kids and the individuals who have existing eye conditions, don’t rehearse Tratak.
