Mudras, Bundhas & Dristis
Practice on effects of prana on mudras, bandhas, and dristis in a holistic way.
Prana in Sanskrit means “primary energy,” sometimes translated as “breath” or “vital force,” though it is actually something more. Prana has many levels of meaning, from the physical breath to the energy of consciousness itself. Prana is not only the basic life-force, it is the original creative power. It is the master form of all energy working at every level of our being. Indeed, the entire universe is a manifestation of prana.
Mudras in Sanskrit is derived from the root word “Mud,” meaning “to be glad or to have a delight in.” Mudras are postures that bring delight to the deities and also to the performers, and cause the drava (dissolution) of the mind. However, the term mudra also denotes “seal” because the hand gestures seal the body, thus aiding to fetch joyousness to a large extent. A mudra also represents a spiritual gesture and an energetic seal of validity, which are used in the iconography and spiritual practice of Indian religions. They are the means of controlling the energy in the body and also the symbolic representations of our inner state.
Bandhas in Sanskrit are “locks” which we have in our bodies which help the activation and engagement of muscle fibers, in strategic areas in the body, that support in the toning and lifting of the systems of the body against the natural laws of gravity. It also supports the flow of prana in our energetic bodies in which we’re able to guide, strengthen and support our energetic life-force.
Dristi in Sanskrit means “gaze or view”. Dristis are used in meditation and yoga postures to deepen the primary movement of the pose, as well as to keep the mind engaged and focused. Each posture has a different dristi that helps support the alignment of the pose, bringing the practitioner to stillness and calmness in the mind and body.
Learn and feel the powerful and penetrating effects of chanting mantras; the words, sounds and vibrations of the ancient Sanskrit language.
The Sanskrit word mantra is derived from the root of man which means “to think,” and tra from trai which means “to protect or to free from bondage” or “to free from the mind.” Mantras are repetitive sounds used to penetrate the depths of the unconscious mind and adjust the vibration of all aspects of your being. Mantras are vibrated through chanting aloud, mental practice, or by listening to them. The experience of how sound vibrations effect your being is Naad which in Sanskrit means "the essence of sound".
