Shankh Mudra can be performed by encircling the thumb with the four fingers of the right hand. The next step is to touch the right thumb to the extended middle finger of the left hand. Together, the two hands resemble the shape of a conch shell. The practitioner is advised to hold the hands in front of his/her sternum and recites the scared Hindu mantra, Om, with it. This can be done three times every day for fifteen minutes. This Mudra can be practiced as often and as long as the practitioner wants, until his desired outcome is achieved. Alternatively, Shankh Mudra can also be exercised three times daily for 15 minutes, as a course of treatment.
