Citta mudra may be practiced while seated, prone, standing or while moving, just so long as the body remains relaxed and symmetrical. It may also be practiced during pranayama and meditation.
Citta mudra is believed to awaken
awareness in such a way that the yogi is able to observe his/her feelings, thoughts and beliefs more clearly, thereby distinguishing
between the earthly personality and the true self. Practicing this
mudra helps the yogi focus inward, calming the mind and promoting the
path toward liberation.
