Balances the air element in the body. The hook of the thumbs and fanning of the fingers balances vata dosha in both sides of the body. When the air element is imbalanced, it is common to feel stuck and stifled, or completely scattered. The mudra works in the way that it brings in 'fresh air' if you need it OR re-centres the dispersion of air if you feel frenetic or scattered. Balanced vata should have you feeling energised and inspired
The thumb represents the element of fire, and here it is activated with strength. When we stimulate the element of fire, it is to burn through mental and physical fatigue. Linga comes from the root sound lin meaning to dissolve. With the right thumb extended, this is an energising and heating mudra that brings the necessary element of fire to shift out complacency, sleepiness, lethargy to open up space for new, fresh, positive energy.
A mudra to set in to motion the wheel of dharma - your lifes purpose and the cycle of life. It strengthens focus in order to maintain a positive attitude as it calms the mind and elevates it to a higher plane. In taking this mudra it could be a helpful addition to allow your mind to open to all possibilities with no limitations. The left hand faces the heart, the inner self and the right hand is open toward open to the body is the surrounding world. It is a mudra most representative of the cosmic order of the heart, said to be offered by Buddha in his first teachings.
Another fiery mudra, this one to improve the element of fire in the body to support digestion and metabolism. Surya representing the quality of digestive fire.

This mudra can have the effect of increasing core temperature so great for warding off colds and reducing heaviness in the body.
For opening up the flow of intuitive information and the messages from your higher self by creating a container of discernment and intellect in the mind. This mudra opens up the flow of water, your flow of understanding and your ability to understand the puzzles of symbols, dreams and messages from your higher consciousness. An increased ability to communicate is a result of this mudra.
