From Hand to Heart
Vajra means "thunderbolt," which is considered in yoga to be an expression of powerfully focused energy. In Buddhism, the thunderbolt represents the ultimate weapon against doubt. Vajrapradama Mudra symbolizes unshakable confidence, and practicing it can remind you of both your personal power and your faith in something greater. Practice this mudra in Vajrasana (Thunderbolt Pose) to let go of self-doubt, mistrust of others, or hopelessness in the face of obstacles.
Rest the hands on the heart center, with fingers crossing and thumbs wide. Feel the subtle movement of the breath under the hands.!--page-->
