Bhairava Mudra

Feel freedom and unity with Bhairava Mudra. When you know you are whole and complete exactly as you are, regardless of personality, likes/dislikes, and what’s happening in the world around you, there is less to push against, and more to feel connected to, feeling one with everything.

I love this mudra because of its simplicity. In this position, my resting hands remind all of me to REST, that I do not need to always be so active and thinking and meddling! Bhairava helps me to become calmer and more trusting. I feel my inner silence and stillness and know that I am whole.

FIVE KOSHAS: Bhairava increases your ability to step back to feel and notice all aspects of who you truly are in the map of the Five Koshic levels of being. When you notice as the Witness, who accepts and loves all your koshas (physical, energy-breath, mind-emotions, wisdom-witness, bliss-healing levels), you gain wisdom and maturity.

HOW TO: Place your left hand in your lap and rest your right hand in the cup of your left hand, both palms upward. Hold for 5-10 natural breaths. State the affirmation below three times out loud, then silently.

“I rest in the wholeness and fullness of who I truly am.”

  • Creates a sense of inner balance and completeness.
  • Calms the breath thereby increasing relaxation.
  • Activates and nourishes all Five Elements, Chakras, Pranas, Doshas, and systems of the body.
  • Enhances wisdom and unity within.
  • Instills deep peace and inner silence.
