Concentration is the essence of trataka. And it is through powerful concentration that one makes progress in Yoga.

The Power of Concentration:

In meditational practices, such as trataka, concentration leads to complete mental attention on one object, from or thought to the exclusion of all others. There is no distraction from the enviroment or other peripheral things.
