Brumadhya Drishti Yoga: Siddhasana is also referred to as the frontal gaze. In Sanskrit ‘Bru’ means ‘eyebrow’; ‘Madhya’ points to the central position; and ‘Drishti’ connotes gaze. In other words, ‘Brumadhya’ refers to the point halfway between the two eyebrows.
Methodology of Brumadhya Drishti Yoga
In Brumadhya Drishti yoga, the practitioner will have to move the eyeballs upwards. The eyeballs will have to converge centrally at a particular point. That point is between the eyebrows just above the root of the nose. That is the point where the olfactory nerves are located. Your mind must also be concentrated on this point behind and between the eyebrows.
