Stage outer gazing

Open your eyes.

Gaze directly at the tip of the wick of the candle. Practise outer trataka.

Try not to blink or move your eyes in any way. Be totally absorbed only in the candle flame and wick.

If you are beset by extraneous thoughts, let them come; be aware of them and then gently remind yourself that you are practising trataka. In this manner keep your attention focused on the flame and wick.

Continue in this manner for about 3 minutes. Then proceed to stage 3.
