Many postures do not directly target individual parts of the body, but can still be very useful in working directly or indirectly with the physical dimension. For example, the Maha Sacral Mudra is symbolic rather than literal, with names and meanings, and we can highlight it in various ways to support our intention.
Mudras work with the body on a physical level, especially when you are working with an energetic or physical dimension, so mudras can address particular physical issues (such as circulation, digestion and breathing challenges, headaches, allergies, etc.). Mudras work with our air, chakras, Nadis, five elements, etc., affect the energetic currents of the body, and perform certain functions.
Maha Sacral Mudra
The Maha Sacral Mudra is a sacred hand gesture or ‘seal’ meant to influence one’s state of mind, also known as the “lower pelvic pose”. We usually choose this in the form of chanting or meditation.
Maha Sacral Mudra can work really well to deepen the main subject of meditation and promote a particular state of mind. It can support most of the pelvic area you want to develop.
If you’re trying to help you feel more grounded, the Maha Sacral Pose helps.
This wonderful pose also helps to process calm feelings. It is especially useful for symptoms of lower abdominal conditions. Especially good for menstrual cramps, digestive problems, weak bowel movement, bladder or prostate disorders, and all bladder-related problems.
