The nasal passages are extremely delicate; as such no undue force should be used to push the sutra through the nostrils. As you push the sutra into the nostril, it should be slowly twisted so that it more easily overcomes obstructions. If you find, even after persistent attempts, that you are unable to push the sutra into the nose, then seek expert advice from an experienced teacher.
Make sure that the sutra is clean before inserting it into the nostril. It is best not to tiy sutra neti until you can perform jala neti without difficulty.
