Mudras to keep your cool
Abhay Kumar Shah shares some mudras to beat the heat during these scorching summer days
This is the time of year when summer is at its peak and the sun seems to be melting the earth. Even the nights are uncomfortable. COVID-19 has put restrictions on the use of air-conditioning for various reasons. It is a time of fatigue, sweating, discomfort, and dehydration. In fact, for some, this season is a nightmare.
So dear friends, I would like to share some mudras which are extremely beneficial in this unbearable heat. Hope they help you to breeze through this sizzling summer!
‘Vyaan’ means ‘breeze.’ This mudra can create a burst of air in our body and increase our comfort level in the heat.
Connect the tips of the index finger and the middle finger to the tip of the thumb. Keep the remaining two fingers comfortably straight. Place the back of your palms on your thighs. Practise for at least 16 minutes.
This mudra reduces the burning sensation in our body; burning palms and feet can be healed.
Connect the tips of the ring finger and the little finger to the tip of the thumb. Keep the remaining two fingers comfortably straight. Place the back of your palms on your thighs. Practise for at least 16 minutes, whenever required.
The Prithvi Element counters the Agni Element. It reduces the heat in our body naturally. It even reduces body temperature during any kind of fever. One can practise this mudra essentially in the summer.
Touch the tip of the ring finger to the tip of the thumb. Place the back of your palms on your thighs. Practise for a minimum of 16 minutes. One can extend it for a longer period, if required.
It’s also called the Lotus Mudra. This flower grows in mud and water, and mud and water have cooling properties, as we know. This mudra reduces the excess heat in the body.
Touch the sides of the little fingers of both the hands to each other. Touch the sides of the lower portion of the palms (below the little fingers) to each other. Touch the sides of the thumbs in the same way. Touch the wrists to each other. Stretch and extend the remaining three fingers of both the hands in the air, as if you are holding a ball in between. This will form a lotus-like gesture. Put this gesture at your sternum, close your eyes, and think of a lotus swaying in the wind, in a cool blue pond. Aha! You can practice Pankaj Mudra for 16 minutes.
This mudra saves us from the effects of dehydration in the summer. We excrete water from our body in the form of sweat and urine. Many times, we drink less water than we excrete, which causes dehydration. We may feel dizzy or even lose consciousness, especially in hot and crowded places. Varun Mudra helps to tackle this situation.
Connect the tip of the little finger to the tip of the thumb. Keep the remaining three fingers comfortably straight. Place the back of your palms on your thighs. Practise this mudra for at least 30 minutes a day, or 16 minutes, twice or thrice a day.
When you see a person losing consciousness, hold their little finger and thumb in your hand and rub their tips over each other. This will help them to regain their senses.
