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.

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.

Mudras are so simple that anybody can do it – irrespective of age, sex or creed. You don’t need to have any worries, whatsoever.

You can combine color healing with Mudras.

Anita Vij: Safe and secure Mudra is very beneficial. All our worries are gone by doing this Mudra before going to sleep.

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.

Weight reduction: Blue helps in weight reduction. Visualize blue color filling your body or see a blue candle while doing Fire Mudra.

Develop Unconditional Love

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.

Too much mobile use

KRGS

I am having some problem since 3 yrs. I was using mobile a lot during 2006. But after 2 yrs of increased usage, I have reduced using mobile.

But still, I have some problems in me. I am unable to open my mouth freely sometimes. I have digestion problems as well as body pains only on the left side of my body.

I was using mobile on left ear.

Naran

Stop using mobile phone.

There is a sticker available in the market which can save one from electromagnetic pollution of mobile phone. Buy and stick it to your mobile.

Do this Mudra:

  • Place the LEFT middle finger at the base of the thumb.
  • Place the RIGHT index finger at the base of the thumb.
  • Be in this Mudra for 15 minutes daily.

KRGS

I did this Mudra for 15 minutes in the morning and I was able to feel the difference.

Explanation

As he was using the phone on the left side, his left ear has been affected. This was fixed by the Mudra using the left hand.

The pain indicates the accumulation of excess air. This is fixed by keeping the right index finger at the base of the thumb.

The above Mudras were suggested based on the indications of the patient. In general, same Mudras have to be done on both hands, unless they are special ones.

I am not able to get another job

When you have the same thoughts and emotions, you will continue to be in the same situation. First of all, before you get a job and move to a new office, you need to move out of your mental pattern that keeps you in the current jobless situation. “MOVE ON” helps you do that.

  1. Chant the switch words, “MOVE ON” and be in the MOVEMENT MUDRA (index and middle fingers touching the tip of the thumb, on both the hands). Do this for 15 minutes.
  2. Chant the switch words, “FIND COUNT DIVINE Job”, while you are in the SAFE and SECURE MUDRA (ring and little fingers touching the tip of the thumb, on both the hands). Do this for 15 minutes.
  3. Whenever you are working, or driving and when you can’t be in a Mudra, chant, “MOVE ON FIND COUNT DIVINE Job”

Mudras can be done anytime, and anywhere.

Sleep Well with Mudras

Healing by Naran

Compiled by R Mohan

Why we couldn’t sleep well. The reason is that all our energy is focused on the head, especially about work, money and relationships. We keep thinking about something that has happened yesterday and today, and something that might happen tomorrow. Thus, more energy is focused on the head.

Chin Mudra

You touch the tip of the thumb with index finger. Unlike Chinmaya Mudra you keep the other three fingers straight. When you do Chin Mudra, extra energy in head is diverted to the root chakra (which is situated below your sexual organ) and then to the legs. You get grounded and therefore you sleep well.

Usually I do Savasana (corpse pose) before going to sleep, so as to unwind myself. Yesterday instead of keeping the palms on the side and keeping them open, as we do while performing Savasana, I did Chin Mudra. The amount of energy I felt had been tremendous, never felt before. Of course I slept well.

Vitality Mudra

Here you touch your thumb with little and ring fingers. This gives you physical strength – especially after you are tired from any activities that are physical in nature (newly married and aged people will find this Mudra very helpful).

Additionally, this Mudra puts you on a better financial situation then you are currently in.

Putting you in a better financial position – a case history

Kannan has never worked anywhere and had always been in business. He had never made enough money in his life and been always in debt and shortage of money. Kannan and his wife were asked to do this Vitality Mudra by Naran S Balakumar, for 45 minutes before going to sleep.

What they found out was:  They could sleep well which had been never the case before. Even though their financial position has not changed much yet (they had been practicing only for last few weeks), their financial situation has changed considerably. Somehow they found money from various sources to make up for things. Thus their life goes on a smooth sailing. I am sure they will get better off over a period of time.

Getting back your physical strength

Personally after playing cricket during the weekends I found this Mudra helpful to give me back physical strength required by me to carry on with other activities. Otherwise, two of hours of playing cricket take away all my strength to do anything meaningful, during the whole weekend.

Sleep Well

You may ask how you can sleep well with Vitality Mudra. When your financial worries are taken away, energy flows to your Hara chakra (located just below the navel) and Root chakra, and thus automatically energy in the head is reduced.

Try these Mudras and please give your feedback.

Good luck.

Good health.

Benefits of Vital Essence Mudra

Touch the tip of the left thumb with middle and ring fingers of left hand, and right thumb with ring and little fingers of right hand.

This Mudra increases the physical vitality. In addition, it activates, normalizes, balances and harmonizes the Hara chakra or the Sex Centre, which is below the navel area. So it is also called as the Hara Mudra.

Garbage accumulated in this life is stored in the Hara Chakra

All garbage what all we have learnt from our life – desires in particular, lessons learnt from our parents, and our opinions about relationships are formed in the Hara chakra.

Do we have meaning in the actions that we undertake? We just talk with people aimlessly. How to create a worthy life? This chakra is full of desires. Contentment is the message of the chakra. Only when we release garbage and bring in contentment, then the other chakras are activated. Release all unwanted thoughts, feelings and desires. Then we will grow up.

We meditate and chant various Slokas, though in our back of the mind, we keep thinking about servant who hasn’t appeared yet, that the milkman hasn’t delivered the milk yet and so on and thus lacking in self-discipline.

Other benefits of doing the Vital Essence Mudra

The self-discipline is gained though this Mudra. All desires, garbage and unwanted energy are removed by this Mudra. We live with an attitude of gratitude.

Heal your kidneys when there is dryness

Naran

Nobody likes to scratch their hair, or itch in front of others. Invariably you feel dryness in the hair or in the place where you feel like itching. Dryness means lack of water element. 70% of our body contains water, which is maintained by kidneys. So if there is dryness, then it means the water level is below par or the kidneys are not functioning properly.

How to increase the water element in the body?

Mudra

Ring finger represents water element. Touch the tip of the thumb with ring finger on both the hands. This activates and normalizes water element within the body.

After 10 or 15 minutes, touch the place of dryness or itching for few minutes. Do it as and when you need.

Color

When the water is less, then it means Kidneys needs more blue color. So fill it up with blue color. Imagine blue color entering your body through your feet, from mother earth and filling up your kidneys, which is situated on the back spine, exactly behind the belly button.

Hands on healing

You can also touch that part (behind belly button) with both the hands, while bringing in blue color. If you find it difficult to keep your hands like this, keep a pillow behind your back, so that your hands feel less discomfort.

It is a good practice to keep the hands this way whether you imagine blue color or not, 10 a minutes a day to tone up your kidneys.

Chinese Mantra

The mantra to activate kidneys is “CHU” (pronounce it as “CHOOOO”). Simply chant the mantra along with a long exhale whenever you can. If you find it difficult to exhale after few times then chant the mantra alone.

You can keep the hands on kidneys while chanting the Chinese mantra.

What does water represents?

Relationships!!! So tone up, activate and normalize your relationships by doing the techniques above.
