    Why Practice Padma Mudra?

    Padma implies lotus and this mudra appears like a lotus blossom blossoming open. Padma Mudra assists you to bear in mind the very significance of your innermost Self is love, brilliance, and bliss. The siren Lakshmi is the shakti of internal spiritual abundance, elegance, wealth, great lot of money, love, as well as all auspiciousness. Just as Lakshmi was substantiated of the churning of the sea over hundreds of years, spirit elegance arises over time, with patience as well as technique. I’m not speaking about the shallow elegance that attracts the ego but instead what I call the “deep heart glow” of the Self. Exercise this mudra whenever you feel gotten in your heart energy as well as you wish to bear in mind your natural charm as well as wholeness.

    Slowly unfurl your hands like a lotus flower thriving open. Maintain the base of the hands together, in addition to the thumbs and little fingers. Allow the index, middle, and also third finger to delicately open up. I likewise call this mudra “chalice mudra,” due to the fact that the hands create the shape of a chalice. And also in Lakshmi techniques, we consume alcohol from the chalice of the heart.
