Today, I'd like to share four rather powerful healing mudras:
First, sit in the half or full lotus position with the spine straight and relax the shoulders.
The first Mudra is a slight variation of the pure yang mudra (visit this link first
Instead of forming an half-like sphere with your fingers, you must extend them so the little fingers will point downward, the ring, middle and index
fingers will point forward and the thumbs will point upward. Only the distal phalanges are together. The index and ring fingers remain unjoined
(parallelly pointing forward) and must not touch the other joined fingers. This will form a pyramid-like shape with the four unjoined fingers
symbolizing its four sides. Place the mudra near the belly. The navel must be in the middle of the formed figure.
The second Mudra is the same as the first except that the distal phalanges of the two ring fingers are joined (pointing forward). The ring fingers are
distanced from the little and middle fingers and the two unjoined index fingers always parallelly point forward.
The third Mudra is the same as the second except that the distal phalanges of the two index fingers are joined (pointing forward). The index fingers
are distanced from the thumbs and middle fingers.
The fourth Mudra is made with both hands separated. The distal phalanges of the middle, ring and little fingers are joined with the distal phalange of
the thumb (palms up), the index fingers point forward and the forearms, on each sides of the body, are parallel to the ground... I'm convinced that
this Mudra is the missing one from the Tripura Tapini Upanishad called "the goad":
The seventh wheel cures all diseases; has eight forces such as the force to subdue; has its mysteries; and bears the mystic mark of the
These four Mudras are, of course, done with the eyes closed.
For multiple reasons, these Mudras will not work with everybody. If you feel an electric-like current along the central nervous system while
performing them, you're the lucky one.
