Lotus Mudra belongs to the heart chakra and is the symbol of purity among the other mudras. This mudra belongs to the heart chakra and is the symbol for purity. We should keep our heart pure and make it unconditional as love, goodwill, affection, and communication reside together in here. In addition to that it is believed that Lotus Mudra is synonymous to opening towards the Sun, the divine principle. Moreover this mudra is practised when one feels drained out, exploited, misunderstood, or lonely. The only solution of all the problems in life is to open oneself to the divine force and receive whatever one needs and this can be done with the help of Lotus Mudra.
Lotus Mudra is practised by placing both hands in front of the chest so that only the edges of the hands and pads of one's fingers touch each other. This forms the bud of the lotus flower. Open the hands, but maintain the contact between the tips of the little fingers and the outer edges of the thumbs. The next step follows of spreading the other fingers open as wide as possible. After four deep breaths, one may close both hands back into a bud, place the fingernails of the fingers of both hands on top of each other; now join the backs of the fingers, the backs of the hands, and let the hands hang down relaxed for a while. In the same way, bring hands back into the bud and the open flower. This process can be followed repeated a number of times.
