Chaque Mudra is a pause,
An act of love to itself
Allowing to draw from his(her,its) own internal strengths to regenerate.
Gertrud Hirschi


Kaleshvara mudrâ Is dedicated to the divinity Kalesvara which(who) reigns at the time(weather)

Posture of hands

The extremities of the adults and the thumbs(inches) as well as the first two phalanxes of indexes are in contact. Other fingers are folded up inward by the hand, without contacting. Thumbs(inches) are directed in the direction of the breast and elbows clock(point,stick) towards the outside.
Inspire and expire 10 times slowly and profoundly. Then observe the breath and prolong a little the breaks after the inspiration and the expiration.


Kaleshvara mudrâ Calm down the flow of the thoughts and the whirlwinds of feelings. The more we are quiet, the more the thoughts become less frequent and the clarity(brightness) of spirit becomes big, what allows to observe better itself and to find solutions.

To use in case of overactivity of the mental, when, for example, certain thoughts do not stop swirling in your head without that you succeeded in stopping(arresting) them.

Kaleshvara mudrâ Can be also used to change a character trait, stimulate the memory and the concentration or release itself from a dependence. For that purpose, he(it) should be practised daily during at least 10 in 20 minutes.

And finally, do not hesitate to use him(it) during your sessions of dhârana (concentration) and dhyâna (meditations).

The gesture(movement) of the knowledge or the gesture(movement) of the wisdom

The thumb(inch) and the index are in contact, the other fingers are tightened(stretched out). Hands are managed upward or are face to face.

The thumb(inch) is in connection with Manipura Chakrâ, chakrâ of the stomach.

The index as for him is in connection with Anahata Chakrâ, chakrâ of the heart.

The major with Vishudha Chakrâ, the chakrâ of the throat(breast).

The ring finger with Muladhara Chakrâ, the chakrâ of the base, the chakrâ root.

The little finger with Svadisthana Chakrâ, the chakrâ of the pubis.

The thumb(inch) represents the macrocosm and the index the microcosm. To connect(bind) them together, it is the knowledge, the fruit of the union of the relation of the individual with the universe.

Jnana Mudrâ is a gesture(movement) of the hands which stabilizes the mental, which makes the energy circulate. We use him(it) in prânâyâmâ (breaths), dhârana (concentrations) and dhyana (meditations)

Use Hasta Mudrâ - gestures(movements) of hands, it is to allow the techniques of yoga to be stable, without them, the thoughts fluctuate.

When, in Mahâbhârata (such as réumé by J.C. Career(quarry)), the pond Dharma asks Yuddhishthira to give him(her) an example of space, the elder son(brother) of the brothers Pândava makes him(her) this sublime answer: " my two joined(contacted) hands ".

In the pond which speaks, he answers by a mudrâ:Añjali hasta.

In this repartee, there where we wait for an unlimitedness because a space it is necessarily big, it is an exiguité which(who) is given to us. There where we augur an opening, it is by a closure(lock) that the mythical hero amazes us and moves us. And in this space so étrécit which he(it) seems to have any more there of place(square) for nothing (no day spoke does not leak out between the attached hands) is nevertheless place(square) made for a totality.

This non-space contains the whole: the left, the right, in the daytime and at night, the sun and the moon, which are the ha and the tha of the hatha yoga, îda and pingalâ, 2 nadî, the inspir and the expir, the activity and the rest, the male and the feminine, Shiva and Shakti, shtirâ and sukhâ (the firmness and the sweetness), Agni and Soma (the fire(light) and the sacred "juice" of the rites), the East and the West, the credit note and the being, the space and the height, the spirit and the material(subject), the life and the death and all the couples of opposite ( dvandva ) that have him(it) can again imagine, that 2 hands symbolize.

By taking Añjali hasta mudrâ, by making this simple gesture(movement) join(contact) both hands the one against the other one, in the beginning of course(price,courses) or in a posture, you already make of the yoga (in the 1st sense(direction) of the word which means joining(closing,contacting). You gather(combine) the duality in unity(unit). You connect two poles, one more and one less, to make appear an energy. You are in an intervening period(jump ball), there where opposite incur and calm down and where from emergent of new possibilities. It is not any more the day and at night, it is the twilight, neither the inspir, nor the expir, but the small time(weather) of respiratory retention which binds(connects) both, neither îda and pingalâ but sushumnâ, the central channel(canal) of energy, nor Shiva, nor Shakti, but Ardhanârishvara, the androgyne, either still the male which recognized its feminine and lively part paid(poured,overturned).

It is the whole and its opposite reconciled, giving birth to a shape and a new, unsuspected strength. By taking this gesture(movement) of hands, it is to try to transcend the dualities of the life.

And Yuddhishtira to answer Dharma his father who asks him(her) " what is your opposite? ", he says "myself"

In yoga, the attached hands are in front of the breast, in front of the heart and the beginning knows the end and the end is the beginning...

Let us continue our discovery of mudrâ and bandha practised in yoga...

bhramara mudrâ

Hasta = hand

Mudrâ = gesture(movement)

Hasta mudrâ = wave of one's hand

In our sessions of yoga, we use regularly hasta mudrâ during dhârana (concentrations), dhyana (meditations), prânâyâmâ (breaths), âsana (postures)

Not for a some elegance or a particular aesthetics, even if these are him(it) let us admit it, but for a real work on the energy structure, the typical and inherent pretext of mudrâ and bandha (gestures(movements) and contracted).

They are many these hasta mudrâ and little proposed in the courses(prices) of yoga, what is very it's a pity because they are powerful, they stimulate the energies of the earth(ground), the others some water or the wind etc., they change the routes of the energies and have a real incidence on the mental.

Parmis were the most known, we find jnâna mudrâ chinmudra2.jpg


A hasta mudrâ which acts on the body, the psyche, the spirit and symbolizes the narrow link of the human consciousness (thumb)((inch)) with the totality of the being.
Three tense fingers symbolize three guna, that is the characteristics which maintain in movement all the evolution, in the microcosm: tamas ( the lethargy), rajas ( the activity) and sattva (the balance, the harmony).
The closed circle trained(formed) by the index and the thumb(inch) represents the real purpose of the yoga, the unification of Atman, the individual soul and Brahman, the cosmic soul. (Notion of microcosm and macrocosm bound(connected) to Hatha Yoga)

The whole program here is that proposes these gestures(movements) of hands!

Here is the importance of these gestures(movements) which I ask to make in every session of yoga.

Gestures(Movements) which we go henceforth and regularly use, not only in the techniques of postures, breaths, concentrations or meditations, also as full moments in an approach(initiative) of harmonization, cleaning, auto-care. If hasta mudrâ has so many effects on our physical, energy and mental body, they are a real reassurance during ill-being, during disease, during faintnesses(malaises), during fear. For a fragile joint(articulation), a heart which is carried away, blocked lungs, difficult digestion, constipation or its opposite, migraine etc. etc. etc....





Who says that the Yoga does not speak about health?
