View of omnigaze from Tschlin – Switzerand

While reading the instructions, consult the omnigaze device picture above. What you see in the picture is the correct and final alignment of the device from the view point of an omnigazer.

While practicing or performing omnigaze, it is advisable to wear shades especially in the presence of intense sunlight.

  1. Stand towards the sun.
  2. Using your right hand, hold the device with the tip of your fingers in a way that the device’s ‘Horizon’ line is kept horizontal and the side of the device with the city names points faces you.
  3. Extend your arm.
  4. Raise the box above to your eye level and while keeping the ‘Horizon’ line horizontal make sure that you can look throught view finder.
  5. In the view finder and from your perspective, the black triangle in the front of the box should just touch the hollow triangle at the back of the box.
  6. While maintaining your view through the view finder, and by moving your arm, adjust the angle of your arm until the lower edge of the sun light notch lays on the city of your location.
  7. Now the view finder is showing you the point of omnigaze in the sky. Concentrate on that point.
  8. Make sure you continue your look for sometime after the moment of omnigaze is passed.
  9. You have successfully performed the omnigaze.
