in bhagavat gita as it is 6.13-14 "One should hold one's body, neck and head erect in a straight line and stare steadily at the tip of the nose..."

Paramahansa Yogananda: "A majority of Gita translators and commentators have misinterpreted the word nasikagram to mean 'tip of the nose'. The word literally means 'origin of the nose'. The origin or the starting place of the nose is the spot between the two eyebrows...My guru Sri Yukteswar noticing how frequently nasikagram is misunderstood, once said drolly: 'The path of the yogi is singular enough as it is. Why councel him that he must also make himself cross-eyed?"

Has anybody really heard of a yoga teacher teaching their students to stare at the tip of your nose when the spiritual eye is located at the origin of the nose?


do wop unto others as you would have them do wop unto you
