I have seen many type of mudras as described here but I am unable to conclude which is best one, for developing concentration.Which in turn will give better results in meditation.

Following are the pictures of mudras which I found are important in meditation.

  • I think it depends on the kind of meditation and the kind of position that suits you – Sai Apr 5 '15 at 4:31

    In the beginning do the one that feels most natural to you, that you can do with ease, but the right hand should always be held in the left (as can be seen in both pics). Beyond that, you should find a teacher and ask him. Specific mudras become more important after you learn to control the flow of prana in the body. – Swami Vishwananda Apr 5 '15 at 15:59
  • Swamiji Pranam, sir I agree with you but there should be a generalization for mudras, or should I make a trial and error test? The one which sends me to highest level of consciousness? I would like to know what scriptures have in them , what is their opinion in this topic scriptures like gherand samhita or patanjali yoga sutras – Yogi Apr 5 '15 at 16:11
  • A mudra in and by itself will not send you to a higher level of consciousness. Meditation and concentration will do that. Most people learn from their teacher. Learn meditation and through that learn to control the prana. When you know how to control the prana, your body and mind will tell you which mudra(s) are best for you. – Swami Vishwananda Apr 6 '15 at 7:46

  • Your answer is good but the reference is not a scripture related to hindusism, also your answer is incomplete because you haven't specified the best out of these/ or shastra opinion for best of these mudras for medetation – Yogi Apr 15 '15 at 6:12
  • These are the best mudras for different purpose ,as you can see I have also described the mudra with the purpose.any way I will try to improve the answer if you find this answer helpfull please upvote it. – Vivek Doshi Apr 15 '15 at 10:00
  • As @Creator said, it would be better if you could cite scripture. – Keshav Srinivasan Apr 15 '15 at 14:31
