Mudra for surrender

Udana Mudra

It activates the throat chakra that energizes the head. It brings in the clarity of the mind.  Apart from that this can be helpful for bad throat condition also.

When you are stuck in a problem situation, be in this Mudra and chant the switch words, “CLIMB CRYSTAL TOGETHER DIVINE”.

To sit regularly for a meditation, even though if it is escapism, be in this Mudra, and you will continue to sit for the meditation.

Surrender

It is also called as Mudra for Surrender.

What is meant by surrender?

Surrender is not inaction. Whatever we are doing we have do it.

You are writing with a pen. Suppose the pen gets a life and says, “I am writing so many things”.  Will you accept it? The pen is not supposed to say that and that to you.

Let us say the pen says to you that “I am writing so many things. So many good ideas come to me, when I am writing”. If so, you will break the pen and will go for a new one.

Similarly, surrendering means, the attitude of ownership is relinquished. ‘I am not the doer’ – that attitude should be cultivated. It is the training of the mind. That can be cultivated or trained by being in this Mudra.

Everything is coming from the space. Because of the divine, we are doing something. You are doing the action for the divine, by the power of the divine and with the help of the divine. That attitude has to be ingrained in every part of the brain. For which, this mudra will be very helpful.

You are not the doer – understanding and believing it

How to understand and believe that you are not the doer?

It is not the question of understanding. How to believe we are not the doer, but divine is the doer?

Instructions to do the Mudra: On both the hands, keep the thumb at the base of the little finger (first image) and rest of the fingers covering the thumb (next image).

Udana Mudra

No more liars

Naran

One good advantage of Chin Mudras is, when the opposite person speaks lies, or when you want to escape from a position of speaking lie – however we will always justify a lie, be in this Mudra. It can make a person resist from lying.

If you want to find out whether another person is lying or not, you be in this Mudra. That is why when a person comes and talks to you, you be in this Mudra and smile at him. If he wants to lie then he cannot lie or fortunately he may speak truth also.

However, you should have the courage to know the truth.

Daily, if you be in this Mudra for 25 minutes no lying person will come near you. No cheat can come and approach you.

Sometimes, we have to think sentimentally too…

Naran

If mind (middle finger) joins with ring finger, then we will think emotionally. This combination of Middle and ring fingers becomes the emotional mind.

The emotional mind consists of opposite qualities like joy, happiness and worry, Fear and fearlessness, anger and love.

In emotional state, every opposite quality exists simultaneously. We pick up any emotion, depending on the thinking mind.

I want to be angry with that person. The moment you think that, a state of anger is produced. And, the emotion can act without the thinking mind (index finger) also.

Activating the rational mind

Naran

The mind operates with ego.

Which is the biggest finger? Ego must be the biggest finger, which is the middle finger.

Ego cannot work separately. It has to think. Index finger is the thinking mind. Ego is mind and mind thinks with the index finger. That is why both are close to each other.

You write with index finger. The moment you touch the pen, the thoughts flow. That means it must be the thinking finger– the finger that produces thoughts.

For the Mind to become a rational mind or analytical mind (index finger) the thumb has to join the middle finger, which represents ego, and the index finger which represents thinking.

FAQ on Mudras

Student: What is the significance of putting the thumb with other fingers?

Thumb represents Prana – our life force. If there is no life in the body what is the use of the body? Similarly, if thumb is not used, no Mudra will be activated.

Prana means Universal Life energy.

Instructions on doing mudras

  1. Except for special Mudras, for all mudras, one had to keep the mudra on both the hands.
  2. You can chant mantra or switch words silently, while doing the mudra.
  3. You can walk, lie down, sit down or watching TV while doing the mudra.
  4. There is no time to do mudras. You can do it all the time. Of course, they are very effective when you do the mudras between 4-6 AM.
  5. In general, Mudra you can do for 30-45 minutes, Mantra can be done all the 24 hours.
  6. There are exceptions to that rule. Don’t do Linga mudra for more than 15 minutes at a time. However mudras like Chin Mudra and Acceptance mudra can be done throughout the day.
  7. All mudras are beneficial to us without any side-effects. However, for some it might produce an unwanted side-effect. In such a case, please stop doing it and contact Naran.
  8. You need not press the fingers hard when you touch the tip of the thumb or while placing them at the base of the thumb.  No pressure should be applied. Pressure means, your mind is restless and not stable.

The above points were discussed during the workshop on Mudras, Hyderabad, on 16thFeb, 2013. You can learn about Mudras in the upcoming workshop, dated 15th Dec, 2013, at Bangalore, by Naran S Balakumar.

Mudra for Savings Part I

Naran

Do the Vitality Mudra or Pran Mudra for savings. Thumb touching the little and ring fingers on both the hands.

If mind is in a solid container it will produce a sense of relaxation. Mind is here. Thought is no-where. The mind and thought are separated. The thinking is separated.  What else I can do? I can sleep. This Mudra can produce sleep also.

Other benefits of doing this mudra

Vitality, elimination, relaxation, rest, calmness, composure, affectionate, and motherliness.

Not to be shaken by other’s anger – when somebody else is shouting or is angry, be in this mudra which activates composure.

This mudra activates the life force – meeting point of Fire,  Earth and Water elements.

Blood flow is regulated. Blood clots are reduced and excreted, muscles are strengthened, immunity is improved and promotes good sleep.

When one is worried and restless, additionally keep the index and middle fingers at the base of the thumb, while the ring and little fingers are touching the tip of the thumb.

Physical – for eye sight, for Diabetes.

Beat the Cold

R Mohan

I have a severe cold with running nose.

Naran

Do LINGA Mudra (both hands clasped together, with left thumb in upright position) for 20 minutes. Then do SAFE and SECURE Mudra (thumb touching ring and little fingers on both the hands) for another 20 minutes.

R Mohan

I did as you suggested. I took rest for a while keeping in mind that while we sleep, our body does the necessary healing (as mentioned by Naran).

After waking up, I did the Mudras again for 15 minutes. I was alright (without any medication). Thanks.

Naran

Due to pollution, we get afflicted with cold.

The thick phlegm produced and deposited inside the lungs will be converted into liquid form by the Linga Mudra and will be sent to the Hara Chakra (the chakra that handles water element) by the Safe and Secure Mudra.

Pain due to overweight

What is the remedy for too much weight? My husband is overweight and I want him to get fit. He has high cholesterol also.

Due to weight, his knees pains while climbing stairs and is having vitamin D deficiency too.

Naran

I have a combination of flower remedies. He can try.

Ask him to keep the ring finger under the thumb daily for 15 minutes. This is FIRE MUDRA, which will reduce his weight.

Ask him to chant Switch words, “CHANGE DIVINE ORDER NOW ON”

Ftrrs

I like to add my husband is also taking Allopathy for High BP, Vitamin D and for joint pain. So can he take the Flower remedies along with that?

Flower remedies are for mental state and not for physical problems.

Meanwhile, chant the mantra, “HARE RAMA HARE KRISHNA” for his joint pain.

Find your Soulmate

Karinapach

What can I chant to find my truly love, my Soulmate?

Naran

Listen to the “I love myself” CD over headphone.

Find Mr. Right

AAS

Please suggest a mantra to find Mr. Right and get married to him soon. I really miss a good relation in my life.

Naran

Love and Accept Yourself

(Discussed in Hyderabad Mudra Class)

First love yourself and accept yourself. For loving and accepting oneself deeply and totally VITAL ESSENCE MUDRA (Hara Mudra) is necessary.

If anybody remains single, the energy of this Mudra or the energy produced by the Mudra is lacking in that person. That means that childlike innocence is absent and this Mudra gives the childlike innocence.
