Mudras, Yoga in your Hands by Gertrud Hirschi
Energize your meditation practice with the use of mudras. Mudra means hand gesture, and the best known mudra is the Jnana Mudra where the thumb and the index finger touch. This mudra or gesture represents, “the oneness of humanity with cosmic consciousness.” If you try this mudra while in meditation, you may feel the sensation of energy cycling through and around you. In her book, Ms. Hirschi demonstrates over 70 mudras that range from assisting you with weight-loss (Ling Mudra, pg. 72) to mudras that help with enlightenment (Bhumisparsha Mudra, pg. 156). “Mudras, Yoga in your Hands,” is a wonderful resource to have on your journey of health and well-being.
