Mudras and Mantras of Happiness and Love

Gestures and words that work wonders

Have you heard of the book by Sabrina Mesko, a former ballet dancer, Broadway artist and a model who turned to yoga to cure a back injury? In her book “Healing Mudras” she describes hand yoga - mudras - that are positions of hands and fingers that can not only heal our illnesses but also attract happiness, love and many other positive things to our lives.

Apparently, mudras that are used together with mantras can work wonders!

Mudras are the art of folding fingers.

Body language is the part of any culture. Different gestures were used in Egypt, India, Rome, Greece and Persia, China, India and Turkey, as well as some tribes in Africa, Australia and Maya.

In India gestures are called by a Sanskrit word “mudra”. They are also present in ancient Indian dances and are called “hastas”.They are the part of yoga practise and they help a human to get in touch with the divine and cosmic energy. The art of mudras has a divine nature. It helps us get the hold of the invisible link with the Universe, develop greater skills, get the hold of a spiritual wholeness and inner force.

Mudras are a great instrument that can help attract your dream, bring love to your life, calm down the consciousness, teach you how to deal with fears and wrath, how to fight the fatigue and how to manage other disorders.

Mantras are ancient Sanskrit words that have a healing impact on everything. They can be repeated or sung while you are doing mudras, during meditation, or in any comfortable place and suitable time.

According to what Sabrina Mesko has learned in India, the roof of our mouth has 58 energy points that are connected in a reflex way with other body organs. By stimulating these points, you can actually boost your physical and intellectual activity. Certain sounds have special healing properties. When you repeat out loud or just whisper these ancient mantras, the invisible lines that cross the roof of the mouth, receive this specific impulse, that change the energy field of the whole body.

During the exercise, it is important not to feel any strain or pain. You can do mudras at any time of the day. If you practise mudras in order to get enlightened or to meditate, you’d better do this in the morning or in the evening, because doing this right after or just before sleeping improves concentration.
It is not recommended to do mudras and say mantras after meals when the united energy of the body and spirit are concentrated in the stomach area. It is advisable to practise each mudra during at least 3 minutes two times a day. But with time, as you learn to recreate every gesture and its awaken energy, it is advisable to make it 11 and 31 minutes.
While doing mudras, it is important to draw the attention to the third eye area or to the top of the head area. Here is where we are linked to the cosmic energies.

Mudra of happiness

Bend your ring and baby fingers on both hands and press them gently but firmly with your big fingers. The index finger and the middle finger are kept straight. The spine is straight, the elbows are are lifted slightly and slightly put aside.

Mudra attracting love

This mudra activates the energy that creates the feeling of love for yourself, your parents, children, friends, near and dear, for Him or Her, for the sun, the moon, all the living things and the universe. Try to practise this mudra for a while. Soon you will notice that your relations with other people have become more harmonious and trustful. If you practise this mudra for a longer time, you will definitely meet your beloved! You will radiate love energy and according to the law of attraction, you will get attracted to Him or Her! You need to remember this, try this and trust yourself and the universe.
Bend the middle and ring fingers of your both hands and press them to your palms. Your big, index and baby fingers are straight up. Raise your elbows, concentrate and keep the posture during several minutes. Visualize that you bathe in the ocean of light and love. Say this mantra twice: SAT NAM UAHEI GURU.

Mudra attracting success

This mudra activates the desire to take actions, to sooner fulfil your dream. During the practise of this mudra imagine that you have already achieved your aim. Imagine you are an oil baron, or an owner of a prestigious hotel. If you accompany this mudra with the mantra HAR HAR, you will soon notice that the energy of success goes your way!

Put the index fingers of your both hands together so that the big fingers are hidden and the palms are directed downwards. For a second, firmly press the index fingers together. Now turn your hands upwards. Now your baby fingers are close together. Again turn your hands so that the index fingers are close together. At the moment when you change your hands position, you must say HAR HAR.

Mudra raising sexual energy

This mudra keeps the sexual energy in balance and reinforces it because it cleanses and recreates the organs of reproduction. When using this mudra, you will soon notice that you have become more attractive for the opposite as well as for your own sex. Use it together with your beloved, then Casanova himself could envy your deep sexual life!

The first gesture, when the right big finger covers the left one, reinforces sexuality, the second one, when the left big finger covers the right one, fills you up with sensuality and tenderness.

Mudra for obtaining self-confidence

Everyday use of this mudra will change your inner self. You will become so much self-confident and optimistic, that you will be able to inspire your friends. Use this mudra before a business meeting or before taking important decisions.

This mudra corrects the energy of the perceiving centers of the brain and generates positive energy, removes thoughts and actions that can harm you.
Mantras for this mudra are:

Your hands are below your heart area, and the elbows are bent and put aside. The bent middle, ring and baby fingers are united by the middle falanges. The index fingers are straight forward and their distal phalanxes are put together. Big fingers are also put together and their distal phalanxes touch each other. Big fingers touch the solar plexus.

Now you can start practising these mudras and if you feel the energies that start changing, I can congratulate you. Don’t get desperate though if the technique seems difficult at the first try. You have never manipulated your fingers in such a way! If you train them every day, you will soon succeed!

Thanks for the beautiful page. Is there any mudra to kill ego ?

Sandy on July 28, 2016:

Is that okay to do 4-5 mudaras in continuity , following one after another or there should be particular gap between them.

Cindy11 on September 10, 2014:

Mudra attracting love: text says "big finger" (thumb?) straight up, but picture shows thumb on the fingernail of middle finger. What´s correct, text or picture? Thank you! Oh, and raise your ellbows, what does that mean, in front of you, to the side.... Thank you!

sachin on May 05, 2014:

is there any mudra to get a desired lover?

prashanth on March 26, 2014:

Thanku for giving good knowledge for every one thanku

Anna Sidorova (author) from Russia on August 08, 2013:

hi Rev. Thanks for asking. Yes. Mudras can attract love as they deal with energies, including the energy of love. In the first place, you bring the energy of love in your life. So chances are you bring that person in your life. Question is: will you want that person after you bring him in your life or is it just a caprice? In the world of dao, every person has their own life path. In the world of reason and consequence you are responsible for the ones you have tamed. Somehow you need to think about what the other person wants and what makes him happy. Everything originates in your desire, as usual. Good luck!

Rev on August 08, 2013:

Is it possible if you like someone and can you able to bring that person in your life as your beloved by the love mudras.

I really like this guy but don't know how to tell him and he lives out of country, so just wondering.

Is their a video on love mudras....

Anna Sidorova (author) from Russia on June 03, 2013:

Hi again Happy) Mudra for gambling? I have never heard of that one, but maybe there is one. Why not ask this question on Hubpages?)

Happy on June 01, 2013:

Hi avorodisa,

Nice, I understood well about tarjani mudra.

I started yesterday and hope start to take effect.

Thank you for the confirmation, my doubts about tarjini mudra

I have another question,

Is there a very powerful Mudra to get Good Luck in Gambling?

Like chance games, Casino like Slot Machines.

Thank you in advance.

Best Regards

Anna Sidorova (author) from Russia on June 01, 2013:

hi Happy, your understanding of tarjani mudra is very close to mine. And yes, Ganesha mantra is just the right one for this mudra as it is a powerful obstacle breaker.

Happy on June 01, 2013:

Hello avorodisa,

Seems very interesting tarjani mudra, I will do everyday a couple of series of 5 and/or 10 minutes each serie.

In how long time, do you think that will start to take effect to cast the energy of bad luck ?

Cast the energy of bad luck in my point of view can mean,

- Remove Obstacles (the Obstacles that prevents get the things that a person want, wish or desire and also Obstacles related with your enviroment)

- Remove Bad Luck (that Bad Luck that avoid to any person get a good day, a great season to achieve any goal, get success in a Business, meet negative people and a lot more details related with Bad Luck)

Do you think that Chant a Ganesha Mantra with tarjani mudra will can give more power to tarjani mudra effects?

Thank you for share with me this interesting Mudra.

Best Regards

Anna Sidorova (author) from Russia on May 29, 2013:

Happy, hello again. That's a good question. Actually there is a mudra to eliminate problems. It's called tarjani mudra. And you can find more info about it in this hub.

Bad karma is improved by awareness, good actions and respect for parents!

Happy on May 23, 2013:

I understand, then I will do ''Mudra attracting success'' with Har Har Mantra while I am thinking in my goals.

I have another question not related with ''Mudra attracting success''.

Is there a very powerful Mudra to remove obstacles?

I mean those obstacles to avoid that happen what you want.

For example success in business, good luck in any activity, purchase a property.

Also get obstacles for people of your family that have problems (maybe Bad Karma).

Because all his/her problems affect yourself.

Although you don't want that his/her problems affect yourself but is unavoidable.

That means that the member of your family drags yourself with his/her problems.

Thank you for share your knowledge.

Best Regards

Anna Sidorova (author) from Russia on May 23, 2013:

Indeed, mudras can be reinforced by mantras. Though I would prefer to stick to traditional methods, that is to say "Har Har" mantra together with the mudra of success, you can experiment as long as you wish, provided the meaning of the mantra does not contradict the purpose of the mudra!

Happy on May 22, 2013:

Ok, then minimum time to take effect 2 weeks.

I started to do the ''Mudra attracting success'' since I made you the question a time of 35 minutes per session.

I have a question:

Will can get more power make the ''Mudra attracting success'' while I Chant a Specific Mantra?

For example,

1- One session of the ''Mudra attracting success'' with a Kubera Wealth Mantra.

2.- Another session with a ''Remove Obstacles'' Mantra

3.- Another session with a ''Good Fortune'' Mantra.

4. Another session with a ''Specific desire'' affirmation Sanskrit Sutra

Please let me know,

If will be effective this Techinic?

To give more power, more speed and more precision to manifest specific desires to the ''Mudra attracting success''.

Please let me know.

Thank you

Best Regards

Anna Sidorova (author) from Russia on May 21, 2013:

Happy, you may start with 3 minutes per session, then 11 minutes and finally 30 minutes is the longest time per session. It is better to practise every day in the morning and in the evening. The effect may take place as soon as two weeks up to several months.

Happy on May 19, 2013:

Nice, I will practice ''mudra attracting success'' focusing in the details that I commented you here.

Can you say me please?

1. How long time does I need to practice ''mudra attracting success'' (the best amount of minute per session) and how many times (sessions) everyday?

2. In how long time will take effect (start to work) the Mudra with the benefits?

Thank you

Best Regards

Anna Sidorova (author) from Russia on May 18, 2013:


In your situation mudra attracting success will be fine. You can also watch how to practise it here.

Instead of imagining yourself an oil baron, you can think of your goals: more people, more sales, etc.

Happy on May 17, 2013:


Is there a very powerful Mudra that will help to get success in a Business?

Specifically a Physical Business Store that sell products

By success a mean increase the influx of people that arrive to my business and increase the average of retail sales per day.

And also my business receive a lot of wholesales order.

you are welcome, andjela118!

andjela118 on January 22, 2013:

thank you!

Anna Sidorova (author) from Russia on January 22, 2013:

andjela118, you can raise your elbows in any way comfortable for you. in success mudra, you hold one position for a few seconds.

andjela118 on January 21, 2013:

spasiba! :)

'raise your elbows' . Is it straight in front ,or 90 degree ,so fingers are looking upward?

With mudra for succes,how long do we hold one position ,before we change hand position?

I am full of questions! Yupiii!

Anna Sidorova (author) from Russia on January 21, 2013:

andjela118, thanks for asking. you can do the mudra in both ways, as it is in the picture and as it is written. You pronounce U in the word UAHEI like OO, and you pronounce the final i sound.

andjela118 on January 20, 2013:

Thank you for being so polite :) and keep answering.

I have a question . Mudra for love? On photo thumb pressed middle and ring finger,but in text I read that thumb ,index and baby fingers are straight.

Other thing is pronouncing mantra. Word ''UAHEI'' . I 'm not very clear how to pronounce it? :)

Anna Sidorova (author) from Russia on December 26, 2012:

jj, thanks for your question. one healing mudra is the one that goes together with the mantra "ra ma da sa." Sit with your back straight, focusing your slightly open eyes on the tip of your nose. Bend your elbows and press them to the sides of your body. Open you palms inclined downwards at 45 degrees to the horizontal line. Keep them this way during all the time. You are going to feel pressure in the wrist area. Imagine the light shining around you, meditate on your health, and if you heal somebody else, imagine the light around this person. Inhale, then sing Ra Ma Da Sa, then pause, then sing Sa Sei So Hung.

you can read more about this here:

Great hub. very interesting; i'm going to begin practicing these tonight.

Anna Sidorova (author) from Russia on February 26, 2012:

Jartis, you need to relock all the fingers when you do this mudra. The same mudra can have different names in different systems, so I wouldn't be surprised if it is ushas.

Jartis on February 26, 2012:

Isn't it ushas mudra by the way?

Jartis on February 26, 2012:

when you do mudra for raising sexual energy for reinforcing sexuality, do you have to change only positions of thumbs, or re-lock other fingers as well?

Picture will be quite helpful)

Anna Sidorova (author) from Russia on February 15, 2012:

rohit, you can practise the mudra of success because it helps to realize your aim, which can also be a job. Just practise it every day for a certain time.

rohit on February 15, 2012:
