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.

What is the healing benefit of the mudra you have taught above? Is it to let go?

Naran

Index finger at the base of the thumb will make one inhale deeply.

The breathing of the worrying person is shallow and fast, which is changed by the mudra into deep and slow breathing.

The person will relax and his relaxation is enhanced by the Pran Mudra (thumb touching the tips of little and ring fingers on both the hands).

For stress relief: chant “QUIET MIND, OPEN HEART, RELAX”

Mudra Tips and Techniques Part III

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

Mudras can be combined with Mantras, which doubles the effect of Mudras.

Why Mantras, even switch words can be combined with Mudras.

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.

Naran

For your needs, with Mudras you chant MUSTARD (Bach flower) CITRINE (gemstone)

Fingers are not in place

Andrei

When I do this Varun Mudra I hardly can do it for 5 min, my hands are starting to hurt. Is there is a problem with the palms or it is a general water element`s problem?

Naran

Since there is no practice of Mudras, it happens.  Do it for some time. You will be ok in another fifteen days.

Mudra Duration

Student

Is there any danger of doing Mudra too much?

Naran

No.

No side-effects

Grace

I have done the vitality Mudra and can bear witness. It works. No question.

I also had an unexpected result. I began to put on weight! Is this a normal side effect? Or is this something unique to my mind? Have you heard of this before?

Naran

One will put on weight – only required weight.  If you think you are putting on weight, immediately follow the Mudra with Fire Mudra – place the ring finger at the base of the thumb.

Find Stability in Family and Job

Deepthi

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.

Naran

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.

Explanation

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

Holly and Willow: the Bach flower remedies to forget and forgive.

Receive Unconditional Love

Student

Could you please say if there is any Mudra for love so as to show my unconditional love to husband?

Naran

Touch your thumb with little and ring fingers (Safe and Secure Mudra) on both the hands and see the picture of the Mother’s Flower Red Balsam (the picture is available at the centre).

Movement happens without fail

Grace

I am so amazed at how quickly it works. While, working my way through very serious construction related traffic and with only a few minutes to catch a bus, I did the movement Mudra. The traffic which had been at a complete standstill, started to move in less than a min!

Shobana Gopi

One of my relatives is a driver. He was driving a VIP, who is a director from one of the top software companies in India. The latter had to attend a meeting in Mumbai, without fail.

They were caught in a traffic, which wasn’t moving even an inch. The VIP told my relative to somehow beat the traffic and help him catch his flight.

My relative did the Movement Mudra while they were stuck in the traffic. He suddenly found a way, went through a long route not generally used by the public and reached the airport on time.

The director was so happy that he gave my relative a good tip.

Explanation

The Movement Mudra is done by touching both index and middle fingers with the tip of our thumb on both the hands.

Whenever you are stuck up in life, say there is no progress in a project or work, or as in the above cases in a traffic jam, movement Mudra helps.

While driving or doing some work, you can also chant the switch words “HALF-WAY DIVINE” to reduce the time taken to complete the task on hand. You can chant the switch words, while doing the Mudra too.

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.
