The impact of this mudra on health
Aakash mudrā increases space in the body.Which gives various benefits to health and spiritual enlightenment.The practice of this mudra enables the person(atman) to reunite with the collective consciousness(Paramaatmaa or God). Negative emotions like fear, anger, sorrow, etc. are replaced by positive feelings and thoughts.
The increase as mentioned above in internal space is affected by the elimination of metabolic wastes from the body.
Aakash mudra detoxified the body.The increased internal space enables the rest of the four bodily elements: earthVayu(air), Agni(fire), Jal(water) and PritEarth) to increase, affording them a room to act. Thus, Aakash-vardhak mudra can be beneficially combined with mudras that increase the other four elements(i.e., Vaayu-vardhak mudra, Prithvi vardhak mudra, Agni-vardhak mudra and jal-vardhak mudra).
In general, Aakash mudra is an excellent mudra that stimulates noble thoughts and helps the practitioner to take rapid strides along the path to moksha(salvation).
It also helps a person who wishes to scale great heights in the art of meditation.
The element Aakash is also a component of bodily humor Vata. Therefore, Aakash-vardhak mudra reinforces the Vata humor of the body. It should be done in moderation by people of Vata constitution.
