Healing power of mudras
The many health benefits of yoga are now generally known, but many people find yoga too challenging. They might be interested instead in exploring mudras, which promise, according to Rajendar Menen, their own quite astonishing results. Readers interested in Eastern philosophy and thought and devotees of yoga and alternative healing will also find much to interest them in The Healing Power of Mudras; this slim volume offers a multi-faceted exploration of the mudra, its execution, and its purpose.
Mudras, or positions of the hands and fingers, are not only part of yoga, but also of dance, tantra, art, and even martial arts. Their significance throughout history is visible in various depictions of the Buddha, other deities, and bodhisattvas, whose hands are portrayed in numerous positions to relay the traits each deity embodies. A fascinating if brief section discusses some of these religious figures and their roles, describing their yogic postures and mudras.
The deceptive ease of mudras may entice readers into further research into the study of yoga and other alternatives, leading to better health and mental and physical well-being. This book is an excellent, affordable guide to a little-known practice that can have benefits far beyond its modest appearance.

Prana mudra can be used whenever you feel drained or tired, and need an extra boost of energy. This mudra cleanses our aura due to its innate ability to control the subtle energies of our aura.

The fire element is associated with body-temperature and metabolism. Practice of Surya mudra helps to maintain the body-temperature and keeps the metabolism going. It is a very powerful mudra with significant healing capacity. It increases the fire element in the body and reduces the earth element.
I was in the middle of my Mastery of Self-Love Certification a few years ago and the trainer, Janet Attwood, started speaking about mudras. While I really love to learn, I was a bit hesitant to actually put them to the test. Before I do something, I want to know what it means and whether it is in alignment with my principles and my faith.
You can easily and seamlessly incorporate the practice of mudras into your daily life. Many people recommend stopping your mudra performance after 30-45 minutes. The best recommendation is to stop if you feel any pain or added stress during the mudra session.
You can accompany these mudras with prayer, meditation, yoga, music, breathing, aromatherapy, visualization, affirmations, gratitude, and other spiritual practices that promote positive growth in all areas of your life.
I have been practicing hand mudras for a while now and they have really worked for me. I have also seen them work for people I know. Because of these real-life experiences, I think mudras are worth a try!
My date with the mudras began only a few years ago, with my foray into the amazing world of meditation. A regular practice of mudras led me to discover that mudras not only serve as an ideal meditative tool, but also as a healing software for our emotional, mental, and physical problems and spiritual enhancement.
Our physical body is made up of five elements, viz., water, earth, akasha [ether], air, and fire, which are represented by the little finger, the ring finger, the middle finger, the index finger, and the thumb, respectively. Imbalances in these elements upset our immune system and cause various ailments The joining of two or more fingers to form hand mudras, and holding them in a certain fixed pattern, creates balance for the five elements, following which healing ensues.
This is performed by joining the tips of your index finger and thumb, and keeping the other three fingers stretched and joined together. This is very powerful and effective in cases of mental ailments and sleeplessness [insomnia]. It also imparts happiness, develops the intellect, sharpens your memory, and concentration powers.
This is obtained by interlacing the fingers and clasping the hands together with the index fingers joined and extended. The mudra is used to direct and focus energy to a particular area in the body to provide the healing effect.

Director of the Vivekanand Yogashram in Delhi, soft spoken, articulate and extremely knowledgeable, the Acharya can talk endlessly and with authority on the science of Mudras. About hasta mudras (hand postures), the Acharya says that there is a tremendous flow of energy in our hands and each finger represents one of the five elements - the thumb is agni (fire), the forefinger is vayu (air), the middle finger is akash (ether), the ring finger is prithui (earth) and the little finger is jal (water). The roots of all diseases lie in an imbalance of one of the five elements and can be corrected with medicines, willpower and Mudras, he says. The science of Mudras is one of the finest gifts of yoga to the cause of human welfare.
The Gyan Mudra is equally simple and effective. "Gently touch the thumb with the index finger. This will help in improving the power of the mind. In the Jalodhar Naashak Mudra the little finger should touch the mount of the thumb and the thumb should touch the little finger. This Mudra is good for water retention in the body," Shah avers.

Our fingers have enormous power. With the right positioning for prescribed periods, the fingers of both hands can rejuvenate the body, heal disease and even slowly, over time, make a spiritual awakening happen. Mudras can be practiced in all ways: walking, sitting, standing and even lying down! They require no gadgetry, complicated accessories or extra space. They are easy to do, make no demands of extraordinary physical strength, and are completely free. Called the 'Yoga of the hands', Mudras are an ideal healing tool. They have been known to prevent and cure illnesses and, most important, slowly bring about a spiritual regeneration. 041b061a72
