Bring the tip of your index finger to the root of the thumb. Join the tips of your middle and ring fingers with the tip of the thumb. The little finger remains straight. Place your hands on your knees with the palms upward. Close your eyes and relax your body, keeping it motionless for 25-30 minutes.
The middle and ring fingers relate directly to the meridians connected with the heart. The thumb closes the circuit.
Hridaya mudra may prove very helpful to release pent-up emotion and unburden your heart. It is an excellent mudra to practice during times of emotional conflict and crisis.
