Learn about finger exercises (MUDRAS) - Day 10
So, we’ve finally reached the last day of the mudras. Today, I’m talking a bit about a different kind of mudra - the Hakini Mudra.
This mudra can help with memory and concentration. More information below:
Let the tips of the corresponding fingers of each hand touch (see diagram.)
This mudra helps you remember things and increase concentration.
You can practice this mudra anytime and it’s good to do for at least a few minutes each day.
It can help when you are trying to remember something, as it increases memory and concentration. The finger positions of this mudra have been researched and it’s been determined that it promotes the cooperation between the right and left hemispheres in the brain. In addition, it’s recommended for use in memory training, as it opens access to the right hemisphere of the brain (where our memories are stored.)
Well, that’s it for the mudra series. I hope that each day you will learn something more about yourself and your body with the practice of these mudras. Mudras are yoga for the hands. They affect your mind, body and spirit in a positive way.
The more you do, the more you learn. Please feel free to ask any questions about the mudras, as you begin to try and incorporate them into your daily life.
May peace be with you. Tomorrow will be a whole new topic - always looking at ways to better our lives, our minds, and bodies.
Learn about finger exercises (MUDRAS) - Day 9
Only two days left of the mudra series. It is my hope that you have been able to connect with this material and start using it in your own life, step-by-step. The beauty of the mudras is that they are so simple and you can do them pretty much anywhere - at home, in your car, at work. They are also very effective.
So, on to the mudra for Day 9. The Linga Mudra is the mudra of heat and energy. Did you know that a “linga” also known as a “lingam” is a complex symbol in the Hindu religion? It is associated with the deity Shiva, who is one of the three main Gods in the Hindu culture. Hindu scriptures say that a linga represents energy and strength.
More information to guide you here:
You must interlock the fingers of both hands and keep the thumb of your left hand vertically straight and encircle it with the thumb and index finger of your right hand.
This mudra can generate heat in your body. You can have milk, ghee (clarified butter), water and fruit juices when doing this mudra for extra benefits. More information on this below.
You can practice this mudra time you want. However, you don’t want to over do it, as this produces heat in your body. It can cause sweating even in the winter season if you practice it longer.
This mudra can stop the production of phlegm and this gives power to your lungs. It can cure severe colds and bronchial infections. This mudra can invigorate your body. The finger position increases our resistance against colds, coughs and chest infections.In addition, it is very useful for people who suffer from respiratory complaints when the weather changes. This mudra can also help you reduce your weight, but it must be done with care x3 per day. You should also drink 8 glasses of water per day and also eat cooling foods such as rice, bananas, yogurt and citrus fruits. If this mudra is done for too long, you may end up feeling tired or sluggish. If that is the case, you should shorten the length of this mudra and consume more cooling foods and drinks.
I hope that this information is helpful. Remember, I always welcome comments or questions, so feel free to reach out. I’ll be back tomorrow with the last mudra, which I think you will find to be quite helpful.
Have a wonderful day!
