EXERCISES FOR THE EYES

The following exercises can cure most eye diseases, both muscular and optical, if they are practised with patience and perseverance. Many people who have done these yoga for eyes over a long period of time have discarded their spectacles.

After each of these exercises the eyes should be closed and rested for at least half a minute. The more often the exercises are done the better. However, if there is lack of time in the daily program, then the whole series performed once in the morning and once in the evening will suffice.

Exercise I: Palming

Sit, facing the sun and close the eyes.
Rub the palms of the hands together vigorously until they become hot. Place the palms over the eyes.
Feel that warmth and energy are being transmitted from the hands into the eyes.
After 2 to 3 minutes, remove the hands, keeping the eyes closed throughout.
Repeat the exercise at least 3 times.

Note
This is best practised at sunrise.
Benefits
It relaxes, revitalizes and recharges the optic nerves.

Exercise 2 : Sideways viewing

Assume a sitting position with the legs straight in front of the body.
Hold the arms straight and out to the sides at shoulder level, with the thumbs pointing upward.
Without moving the head sideways, focus the eyes on the following, one after the other:
a) Left thumb,
b) Space between the eyebrows (bhrumadhya),
c) Right thumb,
d) Space between the eyebrows.
Repeat this cycle 15 to 20 times and then rest.

Exercise 3: Front and sideways viewing

Without moving the head, focus the eyes on the left thumb, then on the right thumb and then return to the left thumb.
Repeat this process 15 to 20 times, then rest and close the eyes, practising the technique mentally.
Repeat the same procedure on the left side of the body.

Keep the eyes focused on the thumb without moving the head.
Repeat this practice 5 time clockwise and anti-clock¬wise with each thumb.
Finally close the eyes and rest.

Slowly return to the starting position, all the time keeping the eyes focused on the thumb without mov¬ing the head.
Practise the same movement with the left thumb. Repeat 5 times with each thumb.
Finally close the eyes and rest.
