Introduction of Mudras
Mudra literally means 'gesture'. Mudra expresses and channelizes cosmic energy within the mind and body ‡ The body is made up of 5 elements ± Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space. ‡ When these 5 elements are not in balance we get various physical and psychological ailments. http://www.eclecticenergies.com/mudras/mudra.php?num=1

‡ The energy from the body radiates out mainly through the tip of the nose, lips, finger tips and toes. ‡ When the thumb gets in contact with the other fingers, energy is directed back to vitalize various parts of our body. ‡ This is called as circuit bypass. 5 July 2011 Acupressure

Important Things About Mudras
5. As far as possible, the hands should face upwards while doing the mudras. 6. Doing the mudras on both hands is more beneficial. When mudra is done with right hand, it affects the left part of the body and vice versa. 7. Mudras can be done for few seconds, 10 minutes, half an hour or 50 minutes. If done for 50 minutes, desired results will come. 8. While doing the mudras, only the tip of the fingers are used. Pressing the tip of fingers is not needed. Other fingers should be straight. 5 July 2011 Acupressure
