How Dhyana Mudra is made

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

Attention should be directed to breathing, calm. It is perceived with that energy seal the union on a personal level and with the Universe.

What does it mean

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

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