The figure on this chart was designed by Tibetan monks to give the necessary corrective exercises and stimulation to the muscles and nerves of the optical system. A few minutes of daily practice, morning and evening, will produce immediate effects. And, if maintained over a period of months, will effect definite improvement. The eye muscles lift weights doing this exercise. Standing erect, touch the tip of nose to the center circle on the chart (with your back straight). With your absolutely head still, move only your eyes up the first circle, and then clockwise around each circle until the starting point is reached once again. Repeat the movement in a counterclockwise direction. Once you have done this for a while, you can begin to follow all the outer shapes of the entire chart (moving in and out of lines). As your eyes begin to strengthen, follow the edges of each arm of the figure both in a clockwise and counterclockwise direction. Repeat as desired but be careful to avoid strain. If you experience too much going one way, rest before you continue. This is a training aid that involves a complex process of crossing and moving the eyes. It is used by Tibetan monks to improve physical sight as well as inner vision. According to several people who have written about this, this was designed to increase the activity of rods and cones in the retina, and increase the range of light spectrum visible to the human eye. After you have done this, here'a wonderful meditation from Psychiana (Dr. Frank B. Robinson), with some changes and additions by me. Again, there doesn't seem to be any information about how to reach this Dr. Robinson, so if you know anything - please do let me know so that I can create an appropriate Source for my visitors. I would enjoy contact with him myself!
Exercise for Meditation Used by The RishisFirst absolute silence. Bring about within your mind, The Circle, of which you are the point. Raise the veil of Isis, which is the pure white ray. Nothing but the beat of your heart is heard. Now dwell in the secret place of your own inner sanctuary, or special room just for this exercise. Have a special place that is set aside just for this purpose. This helps to build up the energy and the good habit that you want to maintain. It is peaceful, quiet, clean. As you enter your santuary, you light a candle (this is not same as the Trataka Meditation in this series) and find yourself drawn to its flame (which can be helpful in bringing about the White Ray). As the little light dispels the darkness of the room, the silence dispels the darkness of your mind. When you feel completley engulfed, then and only then, do you feel it ... happiness, no time, no mind.
