JNANA MUDRA / JINANA MUDRA – MUDRA OF KNOWLEDGE

 

The thumb represents the Divine & Index finger represents the Individual. When you connect them, you surrender to the Divine & become Divine

 

We can experience Jinana mudra a lot in the yoga field, especially in pranayama techniques & in certain higher lessons of meditation

 

This gesture applied in the practice evokes the feeling of lightness, feeling light in our body. Calms the mind, opens the chest & facilitates diaphragmatic breathing. Reverses the outward flow of Prana & directs the energy inwards, back to the body Jnana mudra is also seen in the asana practice since enhances the benefits of any asana!

 

 

Mudras are very powerful techniques of Yoga, a very subtle way of communication within our body & external world. With mudras, we delve deeper into the human psyche & entering the feel of meditation. It’s not just a physical exercise anymore¬†
