Ganesha Mudra

Lord Ganesh who is also known as the lord of success is one of the most popular deities of Hindu mythology. And this mudra is named after this popular god. To perform this mudra, sit comfortably in Padmasana (Lotus Pose) or Vajrasana (Diamond Pose). Bring both hands in front of your chest with your elbows bent. Grasp your left hand with the right hand while the palm of your left hand is facing outwards in such a way that your thumb points towards your solar plexus and your little finger points towards your collar bone. Move the hands to the level of the chest (close to the heart). Inhale deeply and while exhaling pull the hands apart without releasing the grip. This might tense the muscles of the upper arms and chest area. Inhale once more and relax your arms while maintaining the Ganesh Mudra lock. Repeat this process six times. Repeat this pose by interchanging your hands, with your right palm facing outwards and the left palm facing inwards. Close your eyes while performing this pose and try to release all your tension. Sit in this position for as long as you like and focus on your breath.
