Bhoochari Mudra in Yoga: Steps and Benefits

Bhoochari mudra is an allied technique to agochari and Shambhavi mudra and all three are excellent forms of trataka1. Agochari and Shambhavi mudras are often integrated with other yogic techniques or done specifically during one’s yogic practice program. Bhoochari mudra on the other hand, though it can be done in your daily program, can easily be practiced in everyday life. It can be done without other people realizing that you are practicing a yogic technique.

Steps: Sit in any comfortable meditation asana with the head and spine straight and the left hand in chin or gyan mudra. Close the eyes and relax the whole body. Open the eyes and raise the right hand in front of the face. The elbow should point to the side of the body. Hold the hand horizontally, palm down with all the fingers together. The side of the thumb should be in contact with the top of the upper lip. Focus the eyes on the tip of the little finger and gaze at it intently for a minute or so without blinking or flickering the eyes.

Effect: The Ajna Chakra gets activated by focusing eyesight between the two eyebrows.

  •  Activating Ajna Chakra increases awareness and reasoning power
  • ·This Mudra enhances concentration and creates a rich base for long mediation.

Time Duration: No particular time duration for this Bhoochari mudra. You can practice while sitting, standing or lying on a bed whenever and wherever you have time.

Precautions: Nothing at all. Perform this asana freely.
