TANTRIC MUDRA:
Mudras, a symbolic (iconographic) or ritual gesture, the energetic seal within the spiritual (tantric) practice
of Hinduism and Buddhism (or Taoism), are generally performed with the hands and fingers (some
involving the whole body).

Hand gestures (comparable with mudras) are also observed in the holy rites (ie. exorcism, creation of
holy water, consecration, baptism, eucharist, benediction) of East Orthodox Christianity and Catholicism.

Instrument of the Anthropocosm
In the Vedic-Tantric traditions of India, the center of the palm, as well as the sole of the foot, and the ear,
is considered a spinning wheel of fire (chakra), which designates a central vortex of energy, similar to
those located on the central channel. A chakra is traditionally symbolized by a lotus blossom, whose
petals are meridians (nadi).

Dimension Door:
Mudra practice is a key (body-mind-spirit key, instrument of internal alchemy, medical modality;
metaphysics or philosophy is considered the highest medicine) for unlocking <dimension> doors, opening
the way for the spirit to heal, expand, and return.

Spin theory in mudra energetics, explains the movement of the spirit through reality, or the opening of an
envelope (kosa) of consciousness [sim. dissolution of the elements (pralaya mahabhuta)]. Mudras are like
bridges enabling the journey of the spirit to more subtle levels/dimensions of awareness. Mudras
generate specific energetic signatures on vortices of healing (aura fields), according to their intended
function, which is determined by form (or finger connection formula).

The anthropocosm (cosmic human, or true human) is accessed via internal alchemical (meditation)
practice, which is founded on cosmological principals (a natural philosophy); its understanding is required
to derive a diagnosis and design a treatment plan to enable optimum self-sufficiency; its accomplishment
is required for living harmoniously between heaven and earth.

Connecting-Communicating with Heaven-Earth-Humanity:
Mudras may also be thought of as a hand holding a hand; hence holding hands connects an electro-
magnetic conduit. Working with the hands [eg. massage, acupuncture, qigong (qi conduction
therapy/reiki) agriculture, herbal formula, cooking/nutrition] is therapy. People may perform mudras
without knowing it when grasping objects (eg. a flower, steering wheel, iphone, guitar, flute, brush, etc.),
and access its spiritual power, if completing correct posture (asanas) (ie. most importantly the alignment
of the spine).

The Korean game, chiap (like paddy cake), training finger coordination and timing, consequently shapes
and promotes the growth of the brain. Hand gestures stimulate the same regions of the brain as language
(National Academy of Sciences- Nov., 2009). This idea becomes apparent after observing the human
tendency to use hand gestures to assist verbal communication; and sign language for the deaf.

Sages (rishis) of ancient India have discovered that mudras change breathing (pranayama) and direct air
and prana (qi) to various parts of the body (via energy channels/meridians), hence balancing energy
homeostatically, or opening and regulating energy channels, tonifying deficiency and sedating excess
(see fig. 47-77); breathing relates to the position of the hand. Mystic lore relates that mudras direct energy
(prana) to certain parts of the brain (via pranakriya; see also finger to brain areas below):

Thumb- brain center
Index- frontal lobe
Middle- vertex of head
Ring- parietal lobes
Pinky- occipital lobe
