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.
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).

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
- Except for special Mudras, for all mudras, one had to keep the mudra on both the hands.
- You can chant mantra or switch words silently, while doing the mudra.
- You can walk, lie down, sit down or watching TV while doing the mudra.
- 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.
- In general, Mudra you can do for 30-45 minutes, Mantra can be done all the 24 hours.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
My husband and I have been in the States for about 8 years, living in the same small town and doing the same job. We feel like stuck.
We would like to move out to another city to get more opportunities but it has been difficult to get a job. We just want a fresh start as well as job opportunities so that we can move out.
Be in the following Mudra for 30 minutes: Thumb touching the index finger (both hands) and the rest of the fingers at the base of the thumb.
Chant “THANKS CHANGE DIVINE ORDER COUNT NOW DONE” while doing the Mudra.
Thanks, Change, Divine Order, Count, Now and Done are switch words.
Thanks: be grateful for what we have will enable us to get what we want
Change Divine Order: to change the current life situation and find divine order
Count: earn money
Done: it will be done
The index finger induces new thoughts. It will be from a higher perspective, which was created by placing the other three fingers at the base of thumb.
Now, your decisions will be de-avoid of internal resistance and they will not be based on past karma as well as previous karma vasanas.
I have a problem. I have been married since a year and was pregnant as soon I got married but had to abort as my husband didn’t wanted the child so soon.
And he doesn’t want kids. He says he is just happy with me, and his parents, as kids are a burden. Please help me change his mind-set about kids.
My parents are very eager for the kids. They are disappointed. Due to this, there are clashes between my parents and my husband. Now he is not speaking to them.
And my Sister in law stays nearby. She keeps coming daily to our house with her kids due to which there are problems, and I get irritated.
Please help me to make my husband change his mind about kids and be in love with my parents.
And moreover my job is also in danger. I don’t have project since 6 months and searching outside. That is also not helping.
Be in the following Mudra: index and middle fingers at the base of the thumb, while thumb touching the tips of little and ring fingers, on both the hands and chant “FIND DIVINE ORDER COUNT NOW”.
Write “HOLLY WILLOW” in a paper and keep it under the pillow.
Mudra: worry and constant fear makes one unstable because the air element is more and it has to be reduced to regain the balance and stability. So you bend the index and middle fingers. The little and ring fingers form the Safe and Secure Mudra. When Safe and Secure Mudra doesn’t work, then the variation in Mudra position mentioned above will work.
FIND DIVINE ORDER COUNT NOW: these switch words is to find the job
