Abhaya Hridaya Mudra Step by Step
Bring your hands together in Anjali Mudra.
Cross your right wrist over your left wrist in front of your sternum, with the palms facing away from each other.
Bring the backs of your hands together.
Wrap your right index finger around the left index finger, then your right middle finger over your left, skip over the ring finger and wrap your right little finger over your left.
Draw the mudra to the root of your heart, at the base of the sternum. Hover the Courageous Heart Mudra in front of and around your heart. Stay here and meditate on having the courage to keep your heart open and loving, especially during those difficult times in your life when fear, hate, or anger pull you away.
