During your meditation. you have to sit on an wooden -seat either facing east or north

By this method of sitting on an wooden plank your energy will not be absorbed by earth.

Hand movements are held during meditation.

These are called Hand Mudras, and they have a specific purpose.

What is a Mudra?

Mudra is a Sanskrit word which denotes seal, mark, or gesture.

Typically, mudras are used during meditation or pranayama

as a way to direct energy flow in the body.

According to yoga sastra , different areas of the hand stimulate

specific areas of the brain.

By applying pressure slightly to these areas of the hand,

you will “activate” the corresponding area/portion of the brain.

In addition to the “reflexology” aspect of hand mudras,

these positions symbolize various feelings, emotions,

and states of being.

The mudras are our ancient traditions.

Although they were developed thousands of years ago –

their meaning is still understood and relevant today.

I shall explain four mudras here

1.Jgnana Mudra

The index finger and thumb are lightly touching at the tips.

The remaining three fingers are held out gently (not ridged).

This is one of the most recognized and commonly used mudras.

In many depictions , you will notice this mudra.

gyan mudra

This hand mudra is also known as the “seal of knowledge.”

The thumb represents fire and divine nature and the index finger

represents air and individual human consciousness.

When the two fingers are placed together in Jgnana Mudra,

it is meant to symbolize and encourage Wisdom and Expansion.

Benefits: When used during meditation or pranayama,this mudra helps

to ease drowsiness, inspire creativity, and increase concentration.

2.Shuni Mudra

The middle finger and thumb are lightly touching at the tips.

The remaining three fingers are held out gently (not ridged).

it gives Patience, Discernment, Focus and Discipline.

turn negative emotions into positive ones.

3.Surya Mudra or Prithvi Mudra

The ring finger and thumb are lightly touching at the tips.

The remaining three fingers are held out gently (not ridged).

Surya Ravi Mudra

This hand mudra is also known as the “seal of life” or “seal of the sun.”

The ring finger represents earth, energy, strength and endurance.

The thumb represents fire and divine nature.

Buddhi Mudra

This hand mudra is also known as the “seal of mental clarity.”

The little finger represents water and communication.

The thumb represents fire and divine nature.

it symbolizes very differently and encourage openness and fluid communication.

clear and effective communication. It also helps balance the water element in the body,
