Maha Mudra

Maha Mudra is known with a few small variations on this planet. The reason for a variation to such a divine Mudra is the particular situation of a group of spiritual disciples or the particular situation of his health that might require a slight variation. Finally Maha Mudra is coming from the spiritual part of Hatha Yoga and Hatha yoga knows many different Mudras and Asanas (positions) for all different situations. A true Guru and master of Yoga in its general aspect of Godrealization as the only goal of all Yoga paths always knows what alternate exercise or technique may be suitable when a classic one cannot be performed for a given and absolute reason.

Such an absolute reason may be the amputation of a leg or the extreme stiffness or PAINFUL injury of a leg due to an accident or old age.

This is a classic method of performing Maha Mudra. The sanskrit word maha means great. Hence Maha Mudra is a Great Mudra - great in the sense of its effects. The attitude while practicing Maha Mudra should be to fully devote all of your memories, experiences, thoughts, emotions and activities to God. ALL past - present and future ones. This is a question of achieving the proper inner attitude in harmony with a "selfless" life in favor of mutual benefit for the entire creation.
