Assume a comfortable meditation posture with the head and spine straight.Place the right hand on top of the left hand, so that palms of both hands are facing upward. Both hands rest in the lap.
Close the eyes and relax the whole body, keeping it motionless.
Variation- When the left hand is placed on top of the right, the practice is called bhairavi mudra. Bhairava mudra is the female counterpart of bhairava.
Note- The two hands represent ‘ida’ and ‘pingala nadis, and the union of the individual with the supreme consciousness. Bhairava mudra is also used in prana mudra. It may also be used during pranayama and meditation practice.
