In Sanskrit, the word drishti can mean point of view, vision, and even wisdom.

Using a drishti – or focal point – harnesses awareness and directs it energetically. It builds and develops concentration. By focusing with a soft gaze,  attention can be shifted from distractions in a room to continuing our inner work.

A drishti can serve us by removing obstacles that prevent us from seeing our true selves. This technique can be helpful when used with asanas (yoga postures) and balancing/standing poses.

Behold your drishti!
