Tratakam is a Sanskrit word which means “to look” or “to gaze.” This meditation technique involves staring at a single point of focus. This is typically the flame of a candle, but other objects that may be used include a place on the wall, an object of worship, a deity, flower, mountain, or rising sun or moon.
Through mastery of the meditative mind, we have the opportunity to experience happiness and fulfillment.
