Gyan mudra, also known as Jnana mudra, is a very simple and basic mudra to do and it looks a lot like the Akash
Mudra. For the Gyan mudra you will have to take your thumb and
your index finger and let them touch at the tip of your fingers as
shown in the illustration. Let your hands rest on your knees with
your palms facing upwards. Remember not to strain your muscles in
your hands to do this posture, as this will only create discomfort
and pain during your meditation and thereby function as a disturbing
factor for your concentration and focus. So make sure your hands are
relaxed and the hand mudra feels natural and comfortable for you.
Gyan mudra helps with concentration and peace of mind. So if you
seek inner peace you may want to consider this hand mudra. Or is you
have difficulties focusing, maybe during your meditation, it can
help you be more concentrated. The Gyan mudra is also the mudra of
knowledge, brain activity and memory. So if you need to improve one
of these things, you should try this mudra and see if you feel a
different. You may feel like you have difficulties remembering
things and that you mind is not really working with you at times.
You may forget things or feel like your mind is working slower and
lacks energy. Then try the Gyan mudra when you do your daily
meditation and see if it can help you.
