The Rishis discovered that the whole creation is composed of the five elements mentioned above. They also deduced that the human structure is a miniature form of the universe and hence is composed of the same five elements. Therefore they concluded that the secret of good health depends on the balance of the elements within the body and the imbalances in these five elements causes diseases of the body and the mind. Mudras are mainly performed as gestures by fingers hand positions and also in combination with Asanas, Pranayama, Bandha and techniques involving eye movements.
Mudras help create and maintain equilibrium in the body elements that results in a healthy life. They create inner peace and strength, eliminate fatigue and anxiety, promote physical and emotional health and help relieve stress, depression and anger. They calm the mind, sharpen the intellect and promote love, happiness, prosperity and longevity
