Shambavi mudra

Shambavi mudra

Glance directed upward between the eyebrows

Assume seated meditation posture and form the Chin or Jnana Mudra with the hands.

Direct your gaze inward and upward, as if you wanted to look at the center of your forehead.

Calm your thoughts; don't think of anything; or just observe your breathing.

End the mudra as soon as your eyes get tired.


This mudra have a very calming and stress-reducing effect. It is considered one of the most highly developed techniques of yoga. With this mudra, we are said to transcend the mental world and are able to enter into the realm of highest consciousness.
