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.

Sam: If I do the Chin Mudra before eating for 10 minutes, and by chanting Vallabam Gajaananam Eka Thantham then I am able to pick the right food, the right quantity of food – not less or more and the food I like to eat (as I eat food from different hotels and thus eating the food I like becomes very important).

Raj: I chanted the switch words, “MOVE ON” with the Movement Mudra for 15 minutes and “FIND COUNT DIVINE Job” for 15 minutes, twice a day for the last 20 days. Now, I have got two small projects on hand, which will keep me busy for the next 3-4 months.

Appu

Could you please say whether there is any Mudra for love, to show unconditional love to husband?

Naran

Touch your thumb with little and ring fingers and see the picture of (Mother’s Flowers) Red Balsam.

Be Assertive

Kalai

May you pls suggest how long to do the Fire Mudra. Should it be done with both hands?

Naran

You can do for 15 minutes at a stretch and two times in a day. Do with both the hands.

When you want to assert yourself, or want to say no without hurting the other person, be in this Mudra and say whatever you want to say.

Chronic Health and Financial Issues

Help

Is there a Mudra for cleansing the basic chakra?

Naran

Keep the index finger at the base of the thumb on both the hands.

This is the LETTING GO Mudra.

Keep for 10 minutes. It increases oxygen level.

Then be in SAFE and SECURE Mudra (ring and little fingers touching the tip of the thumb on both the hands) for 10 minutes. This Mudra is also called as Prana Mudra.

Help

If there are chronic health and financial problems will it be beneficial to do both the Mudras and chant the Bija mantras (OM LUM NAMAHA, OM VUM NAMAHA OM RUM NAMAHA OM YUM NAMAHA OM HUM NAMAHA)? If so, what should the duration for the Mudras be?

Naran

You can chant the mantras while doing the Mudras) so.

15 minutes per Mudra will be ok.

Explanation

When you fall sick, one or more of the chakras will get affected. Chanting of Bija Mantras cleanses, energizes and balances all chakras – which are the energy centers for our physical, mental and Pranic bodies: http://healbymeditation.wordpress.com/2009/07/10/opening-the-chakras-with-mantras/

We will get a good mood, by chanting the Bija mantras. When we chant Bija mantras, we will feel energized and uplifted. It also drives away cancer: http://healbymeditation.wordpress.com/2009/10/30/drive-away-cancer/

Decrease in oxygen level is the reason for all health-related issues. Letting Go Mudra fixes this problem.
