The little finger of your left hand touches the ring finger of your right hand. The little finger of your right hand touches the ring finger of your left hand. At the same time, the middle fingers of both hands touch the index fingers of the other. The thumbs remain extended.

Do three times a day for 15 minutes.

The Surabhi Mudra is very effective against rheumatism and arthrosis. Since these diseases are usually chronic, or at least have existed within the person long before any outbreak or pain is perceived, this mudra must also be practiced for a longer period of time.

Herbal Remedy: A person with these complaints should also be sure to eat a healthy and light diet (see Appendix A) and drink a great deal of green tea. In addition, rampion (Harpagophytum procumbens DC) can be used to put an end to annoying rheumatism and arthrosis.

At first, mainly concentrate on your exhalation and imagine how a dark cloud leaves your body each time you exhale. This cloud contains your spent energy, all the waste substances, and every pain. Most importantly, it also contains all your negative thoughts and feelings. After about 20 breaths, also pay attention to your inhalation, and imagine each time that you are absorbing light, which makes your entire body shine. Gradually let the cloud that you exhale become lighter and lighter. In conclusion, let yourself be filled with the brightest light and surrounded by a cloak of light that radiates far out into your environment.


Purifying light fills me and bums away everything that oppresses and hurts me. From the bottom of my heart, I see\ cleanliness in my body, clarity in my mind, and purity in my soul.

With each hand bend the index finger so that its tip touches the ball of the thumb. Then press the thumb lightly onto the index finger. Extend the other fingers in a relaxed way.

For chronic complaints, do this mudra three times daily for 15 minutes; otherwise, use it until it has an effect.

This position prevents "wind" (meaning flatulence), and a sensation of fullness, in all parts of the body. Ayurvedic medicine assumes that there are 51 types of wind in the body that produce numerous disorders. These include gout, sciatica, flatulence, rheumatism, and trembling in the hands, throat, and head. If you use the Vayu Mudra within 24 hours after an outbreak of a disorder or disease caused by wind, you can very quickly count on improvement. For chronic complaints, the Pran Mudra (Number 6) on page 70 should be practiced. The Vayu Mudra must be discontinued as soon as the disease disappears.

Too much wind in the body can be caused by inner waste substances, particularly in the intestines, or inner tensions that are in turn based on states of agitation. Frequently, the normal breathing rhythm (which is different for each individual) is also disrupted.

As an additional measure, the "stomach contractor" can also be practiced. To do this, assume the "cat posture." Inhale and lift your head some
