Now moving the pupils up look at the central point between the eye-brows where sacred mark (Tilak or Bindi) is put. Then look down on the tip of the nose. Thereafter, without moving the neck, go on moving the pupils up and down simultaneously, first slowly and then briskly 15 times. Close the eyes gently to provide rest.
B) Horizontal (क्षैतिज गति)
Open the eyes. Now move the eye pupils towards the right and left side 15 times without moving the neck. In order to make this movement effective, you should practice this in such a way as if the pupils are looking at the left and the right ear. It will help in determining the distance between the left and the right points. First move the eye-pupils slowly and afterwards briskly 15 times and then, close the eyes gently to provide rest.

Fold the palms in the shape of a cup. Put them gently on the eyes in such a way that the eyes are fully covered. Fingers of the right hand should be placed on the fingers of the left hand. The position of the hands should be such that no light from outside comes inside. Keep the eyes gently closed and imagine a dark room. Stay in the posture for 30 seconds and extend it to one minute. This provides great rest to the eyes, increases the eyesight and will never get fatigued. Whenever feeling of tiredness comes during day, practise palming. It will provide relief to the eyes.
