“Finding your drishti is more about choosing the quality of your internal focus, perception or experience than finding any external point.”
“Drishti is the insight to take in the full picture of something as it really is without obstructions.”
“In life, like on the mat, a drishti helps focus and calm the mind, encourages a soft stability, and builds confidence.
