Good to know. Intuitively I do this. I never knew it was actually a mudra. "... Dhyani Mudra: In this mudra, the back of the right hand rests on the palm of the other in such a way that the tips of the thumbs lightly touch one another. The hands rest in the lap. The right hand, resting on top, symbolizes the state of enlightenment; the other hand, resting below, the world of appearance."
Root Chakra This is the chakra you focus on while practicing Mul Bandh (Root Lock). This chakra is where security, confidence and self-esteem originate. If you are having issues with any of these in your life, then your root chakra can use some work to clear it out and open it up! Carnelian is an excellent stone to wear or meditate with for this chakra. For a matching mantra, the natural choice is the Mul Mantra (Root mantra) or Aad Guray Nameh, the mantra of protection.
.Might have to sit on a rock for hours...or days, waiting for someone to kindly take your picture! I'm packing a lot of provisions for this photo opportunity. Looks like I'll be going on a diet (again!) for the photo shoot, too. Perhaps I can lie, and just tell everyone that's me in disguise sitting on that rock!
