Anjali Mudra Meaning:
The Anjali Mudra means “Namaste”, and is regularly used in greetings.
Anjali Mudra Benefits:
- Bringing the palms together in the Anjali Mudra connects the right and left hemispheres of the brain.
- The Anjali Mudra connects the practitioner with Spirituality/God/Divinity.
- The mudra promotes respect for oneself and others.
- The mudra is a natural remedy for stress and anxiety.
- It is a useful mudra for entering into a meditative state.
The Anjali Mudra is one of the easiest mudras. Simply bring the hands together at the palms with the fingers reaching upwards. The hands are pressed together firmly and evenly; the hands will usually be placed in front of the heart.
In the most common form of Anjali Mudra, the hands are held at the heart chakra with thumbs resting lightly against the sternum.
Gyan Mudra is a powerful mudra (or hand position) practiced for thousands of years by yogis that brings peace, calm, and spiritual progress.
Gyan Mudra does many things. Stimulating the root chakra, it eases tension and depression. It relates to expansion and knowledge. It is extremely calming and brings the practitioner spiritual openness and ease in meditation. in traditional ayurveda, this mudra boosts the air element (Vaayu), thus stimulating the brain, empowering the mind, nervous system and pituitary gland. It’s many benefits also include stimulating the endrocrine system and through the air element it dries out joints and cartilage which might otherwise be full of fluid, causing pain and joint stiffness.
Gyan mudra is most often practiced with the hands resting on the knees and the elbows straight. If the palms face down, one is grounding and rooting oneself to the earth. If the palms point out, you are connecting yourself to the Universe. In this position during yoga or meditation, the student becomes detached from worldly affairs.
Padma means Lotus, Mudra means Seal
Bring your hands softly into Anjali Mudra in front of the heart center.
Slowly open up your hands like a lotus flower blossoming open. Keep the base of the hands together, along with the thumbs and pinky fingers. Allow the index, middle, and ring fingers to gently open.
