Dṛṣṭi(Gazing Point)

Dṛṣṭi means gazing point. There are nine dṛṣṭis in the āsana practice. If the dṛṣṭi indicated for the āsana is too difficult, one may always revert to nāsāgra dṛṣṭi. With time and practice, the proper dṛṣṭi for each posture will be possible. Dṛṣṭi improves concentration and brings about a realization of oneness during the practice. With the gaze focused in one place during our practice, we can be more present in the postures. This focus and awareness can carry over into our daily life.

ーーR.Sharath Jois < Astanga Yoga Anusthana>

Dṛṣṭi 指的是凝视点。在体式的练习中一共有9个凝视点。如果在练习体式的时候保持规定的凝视点有困难,可以回到Nābhou Dṛṣṭi(肚脐)。经过一段时间的练习以后,将有可能保持每个体式的正确凝视点。保持正确的凝视点有助于提高精神集中,在练习中实现身心合一。在练习中,集中视点在一个地方,我们可以更加专注于当下的正在做的体式。凝视点练习当中的专注力与有意识性也会延伸到我们的日常生活当中。
