Abhay Kumar Shah strongly recommends a set of mudras for daily practice to shield yourself from illnesses and maintain good health
I have been frequently asked to suggest mudras for those who are not affected by any disease or illness. After due consideration, I was able to narrow the list down to seven mudras (plus one more for women) for healthy people, which they can practice to keep diseases at bay. This combination of mudras was arrived at keeping in mind the Tridosha (vata, pitta, and kapha) factor governing a person’s constitution, the lifestyle that we follow, the food we consume, and the stress that we face in our daily life.
During the last five years, I applied these mudras to my own life and suggested them to thousands of people. I found that they proved to be effective in preventing illnesses and enhancing the quality of health.
So let’s see how to practice these mudras and what health benefits we can gain from them.
1. Jnana Mudra
Connect the tips of the index finger and the thumb. Keep the remaining three fingers comfortably straight.
Jnana Mudra is the best way to start our day with. It calms the mind, improves concentration, reduces negativity, and balances the secretions of the endocrine system. Do it along with meditation or Omkar chanting.
Time: 16 minutes, after waking up.
2. Prithvi Mudra
Connect the tips of the ring finger and the thumb. Keep the remaining three fingers comfortably straight.
Prithvi Mudra pacifies pitta, reduces acidity, and improves digestion, maintains body temperature, strengthens the muscles and bones, and enhances physical energy.
Time: 16 minutes, after our morning tea.
3. Vaayu Mudra
Put the tip of the index finger on the root of the thumb. Rest the front of the thumb on the back of the bent index finger, press a little. Keep the remaining three fingers comfortably straight.
Vaayu Mudra reduces Vaayu or vata in the body, expels gases, and thus reduces chronic pains in the body and joints.
Time: 16 minutes immediately after meals.
4. Apan Mudra
Connect the tips of the middle finger and the ring finger to the tip of the thumb. Keep the remaining two fingers comfortably straight.
Apan Mudra reduces acid reflux, improves digestion, relieves constipation, improves excretion, and detoxifies the body.
Time: 16 minutes, between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m.
5. Dhyana Mudra
Place one palm over the other, wrists resting on the thighs, below the navel level.
Dhyana Mudra pacifies the mind, controls the thought traffic, reduces negativity of thoughts, improves heart health, and controls blood pressure. It also reduces anxiety, mental tension, and improves concentration.
Time: 16 minutes, at dusk.
6. Prana Mudra
Connect the tips of the ring finger and the little finger to the tip of the thumb. Keep the remaining two fingers comfortably straight.
Prana Mudra is a dynamo of life energy; it replenishes the energy spent throughout the day. It also reduces heat in the body and accelerates the process of cellular regeneration.
Time: 16 minutes, after completing daily tasks.
7. Shoonya Vaayu Mudra
Touch the tips of the index finger and the middle finger to the root of the thumb. Put the front of the thumb on the back of the index and middle fingers. Press a little. Keep the remaining two fingers comfortably straight.
Shoonya Vaayu Mudra reduces the Vaayu and Aakash elements. Vaayu, which clogs every little, awkward space in the body, is pushed out as a result of this mudra, thus reducing every bit of pain in the body. It also reduces the increased Aakash element and improves the quality of sleep.
Women can add one more mudra.
8. Yoni Mudra
Interlace the fingers of both hands. Stretch the index fingers out and connect their tips, pointing towards the floor. Connect the tips of the thumbs, stretching towards the ceiling. Place the gesture between the thighs, in front of the genitals.
Yoni Mudra maintains the health of women’s reproductive system.
Time: 16 minutes, any time of the day or night.
So do remember to practise these mudras daily to keep yourself fit and fine.
