Sadhguru looks at the science of mudras and the ability of human hands to function as a "control panel for everything".
Sadhguru: The word mudra literally means "a seal". It is a certain position of the hand. Mudras are a subtle science to organize your body in a certain way. The way your system functions can be changed by changing the positions of your palm. This is quite a science in itself that essentially involves the geometry and circuitry of the body. By holding a certain mudra, the energies tend to move in a certain way. In yoga there are systems where you can regulate your breathing in a certain way, with certain counts and proportions. By doing this, you can focus your energy on any cell in the body if you wish.
Mudras: opening the cosmos
In Indian culture, they identified above all a certain asana, mudra, breath…
Hands are capable of many things other than eating and doing physical work. You can make these hands so that if you move it here you can make something happen somewhere else and locate it wherever you want because these hands are the instrument for everything. This is like the control panel for everything.
Either you can keep this human system as a little person or you can enlarge it to a great possibility. Whatever the case, the control panel is still there. If you do the right things with this system, you can do wonderful things with life. That requires a lot of exploration and a lot of sadhana is involved.
The many types of mudras
There are hundreds of mudras, some for health, some for well-being, some for creating certain other types of processes. For different aspects of life, there are different mudras. In Indian culture they identified above all a certain asana, a mudra and a certain type of breathing, so that a person brings out the best in himself. This still lives everywhere in the culture, but it is practiced without the necessary understanding and awareness.
