MUDRA

Mudra: A symbolic hand gesture used to seal in or redistribute Prana around the body.

 

When it comes to Mudra the entire Universe is literally at your fingertips.

 

All five elements are represented on one hand. From your thumb to your little finger

  • Thumb: Fire (Agni)
  • Index: Air  (Vayu)
  • Middle: Space (Akasha)
  • Ring: Earth (Prithivi)  
  • Little: Water (Jala)

 

The value of a Mudra is not purely symbolic. When forming a Mudra (or hand gesture) we consciously direct the flow of energy throughout the body. Each Mudra stimulates particular meridian points, which support our mental, emotional and physical self.  

 

Try: Prana Mudra, also known as the ‘Healing Mudra’.

 

Find a comfortable seated position. Close your eyes and focus on your breath (in and out through the nose). Place the back of both hands on your knees (palms facing up). Take the tips of the little finger[[ and the ring finger, placing them both on the tip of the thumb. The remaining two fingers (index and middle) stay extended forward. Continue with equanimous breath (equal inhale and exhale) for 10-15 minutes.

Benefits: Seen as the Mudra that cures all (even your eyesight), the Prana Mudra increases vital energy in both the body and mind, leaving us more energised and alive. By connecting the three fingers you bring together the elements of fire, air and water.
