Different mudras for different diseases

 

 Mudra meaning

Mudras are gestures made with hand and fingers. Mud means joy and ra means produce, which brings the meaning of mudra to the hand gestures which bring joy and happiness.

 

Where mudras have been using

Indian traditional dances and rituals, Buddhist religious practices often depict mudras and their importance. They are widely seen in Meditation, yoga, and other spiritual practices. Mudras are a form of Natural therapy. In mudra therapy, different hand gestures are used to energize, remove toxins and blockage from the body. They work along with the essential elements in our body discussed below.

The Principles of Hand Mudra

Our body is composed of five different elements. The core elements in our body are air, earth, fire, water and space. According to the proportions, the elements used to make the body gives a prakrati or constitution to the person. A balanced combination of these has a vital role in being healthy. They are responsible for physical and mental health conditions and energy level.

 

How Hand Mudra Works

 

Each finger of our hand represents specific elements.

Thumb finger – Fire element.

Index finger – Air.

Middle finger – Space.

Ring finger – Earth.

Little finger – Water.

Ayurveda has given us a proper understanding of the body types based on the combination of the core elements. The amount of the essential elements vary, and they build up the physical and mental body in accordance. They are of three types: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.

Vata – Air and space.

Pitta -Fire, and water.

Kapha – Earth and water.

When these elements are in higher or lower amounts than the required, our body is imbalanced. Mudras also play a significant role in maintaining and balancing these elements.

 

Vata Constitution

 

Vata is usually the ones that are easy come and easy go type of people. The physical development of Vata people are weak and flat, and they are either too tall or too short. Muscle tendons, bones, and joint ends are clearly visible due to improper muscle development. Skin is rough and cold with brown complexion with sparse and curly hair. Looks are drawn with dark, dry, small, sunken eyes and dry, muddy conjunctiva. Hair curly and scanty, Bent and turned up nose. They are also vulnerable to their emotions. They lack confidence, tolerance, willpower which often results in fear, nervousness, and anxiety; They also suffer from irregular sleep. Hands and legs are often cold. Vata people are creative and are active and alert in their work. But are often restless and weak in maintaining the wealth. They are usually fast with their words and walks but are also fatigued. Interactional patterns with external environment are exhibited.

 

Pitta Constitution

 

Pitta’s body types are standard with normal height, slender physique, and moderate muscles. Skin is soft, warm and fair with coppery, yellowish or reddish complexion. The freckles or moles are bluish and brownish red. Hair is red or brown, thin and silky but tends to lose or premature graying. Eyes are medium, sharp in gray, green or copper-brown color with moist conjunctiva copper color. Pitta people possess great digestion, appetite and take large quantities of food and liquids. They crave for sweet, bitter, astringent foods and cold drinks. Feces are ample and yellowish soft liquids with high volumes of urine. Body temperatures are slightly high with warm hands and feet. Toleration towards heat, sunlight and hard work are small. They sleep uninterrupted for average durations. Sharp nose with a red tip. Emotionally Pitta tends towards hatred, anger, and jealousy. Their power in comprehensions, intelligence, and sharpness, give them leadership qualities. Pitta people are right with their financial status and are pride in showing their wealth and achievements.

Thick, dark, soft and wavy is the quality of the hair. Eyes are dense with large and attractive whites. The color of the eyes is blue or black. Digestion and appetite are regular with slow digestive functions. Food intake is generally in smaller quantities. Kapha carves for pungent, bitter and astringent foods.

They also show attachment, envy, greed, and possessiveness. They are often wealthy and hang on to it.

 

Above mentioned are the qualities a person exhibits according to the combination of elements.Each has a mix of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha aspects. They may be Vata-Pitta, Vata-Kapha or Pitta-Kapha. In some cases, all the three types are imbalanced and are called Tridosha meaning three faults.

There are many diseases which result from the imbalance of the Constitution. You may check the type of body with the traits as mentioned above or consult local specialists.

How to practice hand mudras and precautions

You know different types of mudras already but have you ever asked what exactly mudra does to your body? Does it really help? What are the general practices you should remember when doing hand mudras and what are the precautions you need to make note of? Here are some of the things that you should definitely remember if you are to start doing hand mudras.

 

General guidelines

Each finger actually has their own function and meaning: in Chinese interpretation the meaning of each finger are as follows: the thumb represents the planet Saturn and is responsible for the spleen, stomach, and mouth, the index finger corresponds to the liver, gall bladder, and eyes, the middle finger is responsible for the heart, the small intestine, and the tongue, the ring finger is responsible for lungs, large intestine, and the nose while the little finger corresponds to the ears, kidneys and bladders.
Once you have chosen the mudra you want to try out, you have to hold it out firmly with both hands, but not too tight that you might drain the blood off of your fingers. Then, aim to keep your hands in that position all throughout your whole meditation session.
In order for the mudra to be fully effective, you have to have the right body position and mind condition. You do not have to stick with the same mudra again and again; you can try different mudras for your meditation sessions. Match the mudras you practice to your needs. Be mindful of distracting thoughts and try to let them go. Sit somewhere you are comfortable on and try to be relaxed as much as possible.
If you want to do them while walking, try keeping a rhythmic phase. If not, then you should sit, pull your chin in a bit and let your neck relax. Breathe evenly, slow, flowing and gentle.
