  • what is Mudra ?

No Dosha on its own is capable of creating or maintaining life, they must work together. This coexistence and dynamic interplay of all the three is the basis of any human activity. These five nature universal elements are conected with the five fingers of our hands and creates conection between internal and external world.


  • The Thumb symbolises the Fire
  • The Forefinger symbolises the Wind
  • The Middle finger symbolises the Ether
  • The Ring finger symbolises the Earth
  • The Little or small finger symbolises the Water

The fingertips of every living being have many concentrated nerve root endings which are free energy discharge points. Science also confirms that around every tip there is a concentration of free electrons. By touching together of the tips of the fingers or the finger tips to other parts of the palms this free energy, called Prana, is redirected back into the body along specified channels, back up to the brain. The redirected energy traveling through the nerves stimulates the various chakras. 

Thus, the tension applied to the nerves and the neural or psycho-neural circuits formed by the mudras help in balancing the five universal elements. The balancing of the tension, and redirection of the internal energy effects the changes in veins, tendons, glands and sensory organs, to bring the body back to a healthy state. Keeping specified nerves stretched for specified periods tones up of the nervous system. The fingers of each hand are held folded in certain specific postures and this provides the required tension on the nerves.

Compare this with Acupressure where the nerves are influenced by the application of pressure on certain points or Acupuncture, where slight electrical impulses are conveyed through needles inserted in the body. The advantage in Mudra Vigyan is that the pressure to be applied on the nerves is automatic and controlled by the shape and size of the fingers and not by external agencies.

The fingers of each and every individual in the world are different in their shapes and sizes. These are determined and provided by nature as a tool to bring the nerves into prime condition when affected adversely. Thus, they provide a different 'end tension' on the nerves when different individuals fold their fingers or the same individual folds the fingers by different methods in different Mudras. This is exactly the tension required by that individual for that particular application. Nature has already bestowed us with the tools to be used to keep us healthy.
