The Tratakum Gazing Meditation
This photo shows Yogi Bhajan's state of mind for the Tratakum Gazing Meditation to be done. In Kundalini Yoga, this form of meditation involves Gazing into the eyes of a neutral person, such as Yogi Bhajan. It is a powerful technique to focus pranic energy and increase the ability to concentrate. The pranic energy gives life to the atom, all matter, and the mind. The general technique of gazing is called Tratakum. The stories around gazing are many, and the simple truths are well obscured. A spiritual man can tell how open and accomplished you are by the pranic glow from your eyes.
In the Kundalini Yoga scriptures it says. "Even a glance from the eyes of a holy' man can cure mental and physical imbalances." It is extremely rare for any master to give a photo that shows neutrality and a direct stare from the eyes, This is the only type of picture suitable for Tratakum Gazing. Not all pictures do something. However weird that particular picture is-sometimes you don't like it-- that's the only picture that works. All other pictures can do nothing. That's the only one.
In such a photo it is impossible to get stuck on the level of personality. In fact. since it is neutral, the photo will be both impersonal and personal. It will reflect you better than a mirror. In a mirror you can fool yourself with your own face. In the Guru Yoga photo of Tratakum Gazing you cannot. In such a photo there must also be a light in the eyes of the teacher.
This photo shows Yogi Bhajan, in the netrual state of mind. He is not even looking at you, and yet you feel his eyes following you, everywhere, looking at you.
A photo with the direct stare of neutrality can heal, and give you, the instant ability to contact your own higher guidance.
We are fortunate to have such a picture of Yogi Bhajan, the Mahan Tantric. If it is meditated on properly and seriously the karmas cam be erased and individual destiny expanded.
Teachers are connected by the Golden Chain unto Infinity. Guru Yoga allows you to ascend the Golden Chain. It is an action done with humility. Nothing else has the value of this meditation. It is a must for any student or teacher of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan to have an experience of this. The practice is called "mental beaming". It gives the mind the ability to project to Infinity through the creative power of the imagination.
