Mudra for surrender

Udana Mudra

It activates the throat chakra that energizes the head. It brings in the clarity of the mind.  Apart from that this can be helpful for bad throat condition also.

When you are stuck in a problem situation, be in this Mudra and chant the switch words, “CLIMB CRYSTAL TOGETHER DIVINE”.

To sit regularly for a meditation, even though if it is escapism, be in this Mudra, and you will continue to sit for the meditation.

Surrender

It is also called as Mudra for Surrender.

What is meant by surrender?

Surrender is not inaction. Whatever we are doing we have do it.

You are writing with a pen. Suppose the pen gets a life and says, “I am writing so many things”.  Will you accept it? The pen is not supposed to say that and that to you.

Let us say the pen says to you that “I am writing so many things. So many good ideas come to me, when I am writing”. If so, you will break the pen and will go for a new one.

Similarly, surrendering means, the attitude of ownership is relinquished. ‘I am not the doer’ – that attitude should be cultivated. It is the training of the mind. That can be cultivated or trained by being in this Mudra.

Everything is coming from the space. Because of the divine, we are doing something. You are doing the action for the divine, by the power of the divine and with the help of the divine. That attitude has to be ingrained in every part of the brain. For which, this mudra will be very helpful.

You are not the doer – understanding and believing it

How to understand and believe that you are not the doer?

It is not the question of understanding. How to believe we are not the doer, but divine is the doer?

Instructions to do the Mudra: On both the hands, keep the thumb at the base of the little finger (first image) and rest of the fingers covering the thumb (next image).

Activating the rational mind

Naran

The mind operates with ego.

Which is the biggest finger? Ego must be the biggest finger, which is the middle finger.

Ego cannot work separately. It has to think. Index finger is the thinking mind. Ego is mind and mind thinks with the index finger. That is why both are close to each other.

You write with index finger. The moment you touch the pen, the thoughts flow. That means it must be the thinking finger– the finger that produces thoughts.

For the Mind to become a rational mind or analytical mind (index finger) the thumb has to join the middle finger, which represents ego, and the index finger which represents thinking.
