The Surabhi Mudra is a yoga pose with many benefits. Learn how to do the Surabhi Mudra in this easy guide and discover its meaning and benefits.

Definition – What is Surabhi Mudra and its Meaning, References, and Mythology?

Mudras are a way to express our thoughts, suppressed abilities, and desires.  These can be expressed by body postures, eye movements, and gestures. Our unconscious mind can describe Mudras as non-verbal expressions. 

We can make our dreams and desires come true with the help of a Surabhi Mudra.

Regular practice of Surabhi Mudra can help us make positive life changes and bring more creativity. This can transform our personalities.

Let’s take a look at the mythology.

The Purana states that a miracle cow could fulfill one’s wishes. Kamdhenu was its name. Kamdhenu‘s child, SurbhiSurbhi, just like her mother, has the divine power to fulfill her wishes.

Surbhi is a synonym for a cow. This Mudra shapes our fingers to look like the cow’s heart. Concentrating on the Surbhi Mudra fingers, the shape and form of the cow’s udder reduces the number of thoughts and leaves one desire in your heart. You can fulfill that desire by focusing your attention on it.

Visualization in Surabhi Mudra

Focus your attention on the exhilaration in the beginning. Visualize how the smoke leaves your body each time you exhale. All unwelcome energies, pain from toxic substances, negative thoughts, and feelings are contained in the smoke. Take 15 deep, slow breaths and then focus on the inhalation. Imagine how your body glows when you inhale this absorbing light. Gradually, the smoke you exhale will become lighter. It will be like you’re absorbing the lightest possible to your surroundings.
