Dhyaan Mudra

‘Mudras’ are Yogic gestures or techniques that help in bringing about certain attitudes or moods upon the practitioner. Dhyaan Mudra is a pose that helps the practitioner enter into a meditative frame of mind. Physically the touching of the particular combination of fingers helps to activate those parts of the brain that are involved in the practices of meditation.

 

How to do Dhyaan Mudra?

Sit comfortably in Padmasana or Ardha Padmasana on the floor or simply on a chair. Keep your back straight, and your palms on your thighs. On both hands, draw in the index finger so that the tip touches the tip of the thumb. The middle, ring and little fingers are stretched out in a relaxed manner. Then relax with a few deep breaths.

Modifications: You may practice this at any point of day and even sitting like this with your eyes closed at office or while traveling for a few minutes will greatly relax and quieten your mind.
