Anti-Pollution Mudra admin admin 6 years ago Client Every day I go through heavy traffic to reach my office. At the end of the day I feel I have a stuffy nose and tend to get cold and dry cough very often. Naran S Balakumar Do the VARUN Mudra (Jal Shamak Variant ) for 15 minutes as shown in the picture. Then do the Kuber mudra or so called MOVEMENT Mudra with PRAN Mudra down (Index and Middle fingers touching the tip of the thumb, while placing the ring and little fingers at the base of the thumb, on both the hands). The Varuna Mudra will discharge the polluted stuff from the lungs. The Pran Mudra down will act as a Fire Mudra converting the thick mucus to water. Client I find my nose gets clearly and breathing gets improved. It also removes my sleepy feeling after having my lunch. Naran S Balakumar The Varun Mudra is an Anti-Allergy Mudra. The PRAN Mudra stands for earth and water – when it is more it will increase lethargy, the opposite is Fire Mudra which reduces lethargy.
