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.

Not to be shaken by other’s anger – when somebody else is shouting or is angry, be in this mudra which activates composure.

Beat the Cold

R Mohan

I have a severe cold with running nose.

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.

The recommended time is 10-15 minutes but for good results do it for 30 to 45 minutes. You can split the duration into two times – 30 minutes can be done as two 15-minute or three 10-minute durations.

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/

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.
