Dhyana Mudra: ideal to calm the mind after a hectic day

Mudras are gestures made with the hands in the practice of yoga and meditation. They are much more than a simple position of the fingers: they are energetic seals.

Here we will talk specifically about one of them: Dhyana Mudra. He is known as the mudra of meditation, concentration and spiritual perfection.

How to do Dhyana Mudra

In a sitting posture, both hands rest on the lap as if making bowls. The right is located above the left. Thumbs touch each other. Arms and hands should form a circle.

Attention should be directed to the breath, calm. Union on a personal level and with the Universe is perceived with this energetic seal.

What does it mean

In this mudra, the bowl-shaped hands symbolize and reveal an empty interior, free and ready to receive when necessary on the spiritual path. It disposes us to receive new energy.

It is always important to work inward on our feelings and emotions, as they will determine the quality of energy that reaches us, by pure projection. That is: the better the energy that we vibrate inward, the better energy we will attract to us and expand around us.
