Originally mudras were used by the Hindus for rituals, relaxation and deep meditation. Now mudras are one hundred percent compatible with all religions. All the Hindu Gods and Goddesses have some form of mudras. Lord Buddha uses gayana mudra. Mudra is a sanskrit word. In the word “mudra” mud, means “joy” and ra, means “produce”. Hence, mudra means gestures that produce joy and happiness.
The physical body is made up of five elements namely - Air, Water, Fire, Earth and Aakash ( ether - the tiny intercellular spaces in the human body ). Imbalance of these elements disrupts the immunity system and causes disease.
Deficiencies in any of these elements can be made up by connecting one part of the body with another in a particular manner through Mudras. When a finger representing an element is brought into contact with the thumb, that element is brought into balance. Therefore the disease caused by the imbalance is cured. Mudras start electromagnetic currents within the body which balance various constituting elements and restore health. The joining of fingers creates an effect on the human body
