This Mudra takes care of all those processes. It is very helpful for circulation. It is also called as detoxification Mudra. Energising the inner circulation of the heart is taken care of by the mantras, “Om HRAAM NAMAHA” and “OM HREEM NAMAHA”. Chant them, while doing the Mudra. The entire circulation will be strengthened. For high BP too, this Mudra is very helpful. It may be twice a day for 20 to 30 minutes🙏
