Trataka means ‘to gaze steadily’. The practice of Trataka is known to be the best technique to develop the mind of a Yogi.
There are 2 types of Trataka practice: Bahir and Antar Trataka. Bahir (or external Trataka) is the practice to focus on an outer object, whereas Antar Trataka is based on inner visualisation.
