Presentation

This gesture is practiced in a sitting position such as Padmasana or Badrasana. Jnana Mudrà is then formed with the right hand in the back while the left hand holds the right wrist in such a way that the thumb and third finger touch one another. This posture aims at linked the root center to the forehead center. The practice occurs with the eyes closed, while practicing Mulà Bandhà.

The dynamics is as follows:

Breath out, go down and put the forehead on the ground. End the exhalation to be in emptiness. Gaze at the tip of the nose in Nasagra Drishti. Execute Tria Bandha and hold in empty lung. Visualize without interruption a red point at the root, and the bija 'Hi'.

Come back to the medial gaze in Maddya Drishti and launch Bhastrika while remaining below. Observe the breathing ebb and flow from root to forehead while hearing 'So' during inhalation and 'Ham' during exhalation.

After a normal exhalation, breathe in while ascending. During the full-retention, retain the air while looking upward in Shambavi Mudra, and execute Tria Bandha. Visualize without interruption a white point on the forehead with the bija 'Ha'.

Come back to the medial gaze in Maddya Drishti and launch Bhastrika while remaining below. Observe the breathing ebb and flow from root to forehead while hearing 'So' during inhalation and 'Ham' during exhalation.

After a normal inhalation, exhale while descending. Start the cycle again.

The times of retention while being up and down need to be equal.

Finally, come back above during a full-retention. Stop the breathing control and observe in the immobility and inner silence. Afterwards, leave the posture and adopt savasana to integrate the effects.
