Gyan Mudra is by far the most common mudra used by practicing yogis and depicted by wise sages and avatars in a meditative state.
A mudra is simply a hand posture. And there are many known hand postures that are used to stimulate various reflexes of the brain, and guide the energy flow of the body.
Essentially, a mudra is a flexibility exercise for the mind, just as crow pose, baby pose or chair pose is a flexibility exercise of the body.
Gyan Mudra is known as the Seal of Knowledge as it stimulates knowledge, wisdom and the power to understand.
Each of the fingers represents a different energy reflex in the brain, according to the energy meridian it carries. In the case of this particular mudra, the index finger is approximated gently to the tip of the thumb.
Apply enough pressure to feel the energy flow between the fingers, but not so much that the fingertips whiten.
Creating the seal of knowledge in this way creates an active receptivity to calmness, wisdom and expansion.
Each finger holds a specific energy according to the quality of different planets. They also bring with them an emotional or behavioural gift or trait according to that planetary quality.
You may have seen mudras other mudras where other fingers are approximated. These mudras are helpful to know and to apply in life.
For instance, if you are writing an exam and needing to access all your wisdom and knowledge, hold Gyan Mudra with your non dominant hand as you write the exam with your dominant hand.
Or, if you find yourself in an argument with a friend, hold Buddhi Mudra to bring mental clarity and the power of communication.
