We have seen about the yoga mudras narrated by Danvanthiri in the book "Danvanthiri 1000" in the previous posts. The other category of those mudras are the thega mudhras, that we are going to see in the further posts. He has explained about the mudras in his book from songs 679 to 713.
We have already learnt that the fingers are important in the mudras. He says that the thumb finger refers to fire, the index finger refers to wind, the middle finger refers to sky, the ring finger refers to land and the little finger refers to water.
All the strength that is required for our body to function is given only by the chakras in the body. Hence we can call them as the centre of sakthi (strength). Like wise there are more than 20000 such centre of sakthi in our body and among them seven are most important and rest of them are meant for support only says Danvanthiri.
The important chakras are moolaadhara, swadhistana, manipura, anahata, visudhi, agnjai, sagasrara. If these are functioning properly then the body functions properly and if any problems occur in it, then the problem occurs in the body too. To cure those problems these mudras can be used. He also says that these chakras can be controlled by our fingers.
The thumb finger controls the manipura, index finger controls the anahata, middle finger controls the visudhi, ring finger controls the moolaadhara, little finger controls the swadhishtana. And the other two chakras agnjai, and sagasrara are the gnana chakras and cannot be contolled by the fingers. There is one supporting chakra in the palm and also there are many other chakras present in the joints in the finger and those get aroused while doing these mudras and help to cure the injuries that has been caused because of these main chakras. Hence we should realise all these and start using the mudras.
In the next post we shall see the mudras that resolves the issues regarding the throat and the stuttering speech.
