From the Back of the Book:
Our fingers have enormous power. With the right positioning for prescribed periods, the fingers of both hands can rejuvenate the body, heal disease and even slowly, over time, make a spiritual awakening happen. Mudras can be practiced in all ways: walking, sitting, standing and even lying down! They require no gadgetry, complicated accessories or extra space. They are easy to do, make no demands of extraordinary physical strength, and are completely free. Called the 'Yoga of the hands', Mudras are an ideal healing tool. They have been known to prevent and cure illnesses and, most important, slowly bring about a spiritual regeneration.
The Healing Power of Mudras details several beneficial Mudras, and provides a holistic view of physical and spiritual healing. The right colours, foods, thoughts and ambience combined with regular Mudra practise will make for a new and healthy you!

Life is a series of endless miracles which keep happening in our lives almost all the time. They happen so effortlessly and without warning that they often pass by unrecognised. They visit the humblest as well as the most powerful, without prejudice or favour, and defy all logic and rational explanation.
This is my fourth book on healing. In a career spanning over two decades as a journalist and writer, and having led a peripatetic life spanning continents, I have been privy to the most mundane, the colossally bizarre, the malignantly morbid, the ludicrously humorous and the profoundly soul elevating. I have spent quality time on the streets and in brothels and the corridors of the dispossessed while attempting to document their angst and joy. Miracles kept happening in their lives and in mine, in fact all around us, but we simply bypassed their pedigree, remained connected to the real world of cause and effect, and pronounced our everyday judgements.
But it was while researching the process of healing that I fully realised the miracles that were happening in our lives almost all the time. Our bodies are a miracle, birth and death are miracles, and the whole process of healing is a miracle. It is easy to pass it all off as 'holistic healing', the 'mind-body connection' and with other similar jargon. Conventional and alternative medicine men also take recourse in rational explanations, but they know that, beyond a point, remissions happen and healing occurs without easy explanation. It is then passed off as divine intervention.
Over the years I have also experimented with several healing techniques. Most of them work, but for different people and at different times. If they don't work for a particular person, it doesn't mean that the technique or the therapy is wrong. It is just that the person and the time are not right ... or that the person is not yet ready to be the medium.
I have also been practising yoga and meditation for over a decade and have been privileged to spend huge quality time with several masters. There are several days during the practice when your entire being is elevated and you feel an endless joy floating through you. If you were to jot down the period with pen and paper, the milestones would be no different from the saddest periods of your life or even the most ordinary ones. Yet, there is an inexplicable joy that transports your being into a cascade of sheer ecstasy.
Mudras - as you will read in the book - are simple, free and easy to do. They can be done anywhere and they heal the body. I am not, at any stage, suggesting that you do away with your doctor and his prescriptions. But regular practise of Mudras has been shown to heal conclusively.
Several explanations are offered for the healing that takes place. But as you get regular with the practice, you begin to knock at the doors of an inner spirituality. With time, you are transformed from deep within at the cellular level. You begin to respect your body more and look at all life with new admiration. Slowly, you begin to give in to the powerful and comforting embrace of existence. You know, somehow, that it will take care of you.
Welcome to Mudras, healing, and the new you!
