3. The eyelids should hang like curtains

The eyelids should hang like curtains. The vision extends from the bridge of thenose to the abdomen, but it is not necessary to concentrate. Our attitude should be one of gazing but not gazing, relaxed and natural. The eyes must not be completely shut in order to prevent falling asleep, and the light should not be too bright.
