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.

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.

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.

Ear pain whenever I open my mouth

Sam

Whenever I open my mouth – either when yawning or while coughing, I get a pain in the right ear.

Naran

Do you use a mobile a lot?

Sam

I don’t.

Naran

This could be due to Apanan (Prana), which has to flow downwards. Instead, it is flowing upwards instead. Do the Chin Mudra (index finger touching the tip of thumb on both the hands). It will help the Apanan to flow downwards.

Sam (after three days)

My pain has completely gone. Usually, my stomach is bloated in the evening from 4 pm until 9 pm. Because of that, my belly looks bigger. Can I do the Chin Mudra to reduce this bloating?

Naran

Yes you can. Additionally, chant ‘Vallabam Gajaananam Eka Thantham”.

The mantra will make you enjoy food. When you don’t enjoy eating your food, you will tend to nibble your food. You need to munch the food a lot (for at least for 40 seconds) before swallowing it. This helps saliva to get mixed with food, which helps the digestion process.

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.
