A mudra may involve the whole body or could be a simple hand position. Mudras used in combination with yoga breathing exercises enliven the flow of prana in the body, thereby energizing different parts of the body.
Sitting in the lotus position, mudras can be used for healing certain ailments.
Hasta Mudra (Hand Mudra)
The Philosophy of Five Elements Within Us
The universe is made of five basic elements viz. Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth., and each of the five fingers is represented by one of these elements.
- Thumb – The fire (Agni)
- Index finger – The air (Vayu)
- Middle finger – The ether (Aakasha)
- Ring finger – The earth (Prithvi)
- Small finger – The water (Jala)
Diseases are caused due to an imbalance in the body, which is caused by lack or excess of any of the five elements. Mudras are one way of creating a balance between all of these elements. In order to bring back the balance in the five elements, there are some specific methods of touching and aligning the fingers with each other. These are referred to as ‘Hast-Mudras’
