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.

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

Chant “LALITHAM SADHASHIVAM LALITHAM CHANDRASEKARAM”

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.

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.

Safe and Secure Mudra will bring in financial stability in your life: https://healbymudra.wordpress.com/2010/10/05/safe-and-secure-mudra/

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.
