How Mudras Work

The science of Mudras is based on the principle that “The root cause of disease is the imbalance and improper co-ordination between these elements and proper balance between these elements is the secret of good health.” The secret of health lies in hands, fingers and Mudras, which can be performed with the help of fingers.

Human body is composed of five basic elements and the five fingers of our hands represents these five basic elements.  Ancient Sages discovered the knowledge of Mudras. By touching our hands to each other or folding our fingers in a particular way, we can cure any disturbances in these five elements.  With the help of our fingers, we can keep the five elements in proper proportion, and any disturbances in them can be re-balanced so that our body, mind, and spirit become healthy.

The human body, like the Universe, is made up of the fusion of five elements. The body’s health depends on the proper balance of these five elements in our body.  Mudras help inmaintaining this balance.  Mudras are like control buttons of chetana of our body and their proper study help us not only to control five elements but also to cure many diseases and remain healthy.

How To Find What You’re Looking For Here

Mind, Body, and Spirit are the major categories, but we’re entirely intertwined, just like that kids’ song “the knee bone’s connected to the hip bone…”  For easy searching, I’ve separated things into separate categories, but really they’re expressions of each other.  Asthma is like crying — they can be physical expressions of emotional/spiritual situations. Some topics cross multiple categories.  For instance, detoxing removes physical toxins and also spiritual/mental/emotional blocks and toxins.  Often you’ll find that a certain mudra heals a physical pain that has its roots in emotional pain, even though that physical ailment doesn’t “normally” connect that way.  For instance, “dissatisfaction” is just as much a spiritual state as it is a mental one, but for ease of searching, I’ve put it only in the “Mind” category.
