What Does Jalodar Nashak Mudra Mean?

Jalodar nashak mudra is a yogic gesture designed to heal by promoting the balance of water in the body. It is one of a series of therapeutic mudras thought to have healing properties.

To perform this mudra, the tip of the little finger is placed at the base of the thumb, and the thumb gently touches the back of the little finger. The remaining three fingers should be extended yet relaxed.

The name for this mudra comes from the Sanskrit jal, meaning “water,” udar, meaning “stomach,” nashak, meaning “finish,” and mudra, meaning “gesture.” Jalodar is also the Sanskrit term for “dropsy” or “edema,” which is the swelling of soft tissues resulting from an abnormal accumulation of fluid.
