Scriptural references

This practice is mentioned in a number of ancient yogic texts. It seems so simple and inconsequential that one might easily regard it as insignificant. But in fact if it is done for a long time with intensity it can induce high states of introspection and in turn, meditation. The sublime and inspiring Bhagavad Gita refers to nose tip gazing in the following sloka (verse): "Holding his body, head and neck erect and motionless, the aspirant should gaze at the tip of his nose without once turning around." (6:13) This verse is included in the chapter describing the method that one should adopt in order to purify and steady the mind to make it one-pointed. The Bhagavad Gita says that by sufficient practice and by keeping the mind in a continual state of balance and concentration one attains meditation and higher illuminative knowledge.
