  • Before we talk about How to do Shambhavi Mudra - steps and benefits (with video below for better explanation at the end), first lets understand the difference between Shambhavi Mudra and Shambhavi Mahamudra.

Basic Shambhavi Mudra

            This is the First Session or Episode of "Shambhavi Meditation". The beginners should practice this first Session Episode for almost three weeks, until you learn how to focus on yourself and ignore the distractions which comes while practicing.

Shambhavi Mudra and Shambhavi Mahamudra
Shambhavi Mudra

                         Shambhavi Mudra is highly practiced in yogistic and Tantrik literature texts. Shambhavi is a powerful mudra used throughout meditation to still the mind and to feel or experience higher stages of consciousness. Shambhavi mudra is mentioned within the Hinduism text Gheranda Vedic and Buddhism literatures. It basically involves gazing between the eyebrows at center.

Shambhavi Mahamudra

                        Shambhavi Mahamudra is the powerful Kriya and energy purifying technique using the breath. This practice aligns your entire system like the Physical, Mental and Pranic body. 
     Shambhavi Mahamudra includes - 
  1. Yogasana.  
  2. Breathing Exercises (Pranayama.) 
  3. Meditation.
            Its is complete package which gives you physical, mental and energy flow benefits. We will discuss about it at the end of this article with video below, how to do properly Shambhavi mudra.

How to do Shambhavi Mahamudra Steps
Shambhavi Mudra Steps

  1. First find a place where you will be undisturbed for period of time. 
  2. Now, Sit on the floor - cushion or chair, where you can feel comfortable. I prefer, on the floor with cushion. (Watch the Video below)
  3. Now, take couple of Deep breath and calm your mind, relax your whole body. 
  4. Sit comfortably in Meditation Pose or Asana you like, I prefer Padmasana, Siddhasana, Sukhasana etc.
    Make sure your Spine or backbone is "Comfortably" erect, hands uncrossed and palms open.
  5. Get your fingers in any Mudra you like, I prefer Gyan Mudra. (See in video below) 
  6. Hold this mudra and place the hands on your knee with palm facing upward.
    Make sure, your Hands and Shoulder must be loose and relax.
  7. Now, take couple of deep breath and calm your mind.
  8. With your eyes opened, look at the center of your both eyebrows where they meet or touch or connect.
  9. You can clearly see and feel the 'V' shape made by the both eyebrows at the center where two curved lines meeting and forming 'V' shape.
  10. Now concentrate at that V shape or the center of both eyebrows for 10 seconds, where these two curved lines meet. 
  11. Now slowly - very slowly, close your eyes and focus between your eyebrows.
    Do not concentrate, just maintain the natural focus between your eyebrows.
    Be conscious of the natural movement of breath.
    Breath-in, Breath-out.   Breath-in, Breath-out.
  12. Continue to sit like this, 5 to 6 minutes for beginners.
    Once you are comfortable with it and it becomes easy for you to sit like this 5 to 6 minutes then, you can increase your time and repetition of this practice.
  13. Now really slowly, very slowly - Open your eyes.
    Relax the eyes and bring them back to normal position.
    Rest for some time and repeat again.

Precaution and Variation 

  1. Do not forcibly stress the eyes to look at the center of eyebrows. That will start to feel pain in the eyes muscle and start headache.
  2. If you noticed yourself, drifting off into your thoughts, simply bring your focus back to breath.
  3. Your breathing must be at normal depth during Shambhavi Mudra Kriya , First Session or Episode if you are beginner.
    You can practice deep breathing during Shambhavi Mudra Kriya  , if you are at Second Session or Episode of Shambhavi.
  4. Do not strain your eyes, they must be relaxed at all time.
  5. For variation of Shambhavi Mudra, Read or Watch Second Session or Episode of Shambhavi.

Shambhavi Mahamudra Steps 

                 Shambhavi Mahamudra is Kriya. Kriya means Action which took step by steps or sequence or chronology or order. 
            While doing Shambhavi Mahamudra, the First Step is "Yogasana" (certain Yoga Poses).
Second Step in Shambhavi Mahamudra is "Pranayama" (certain Breathing Exercises).
Third and Last Step in Shambhavi Mahamudra is "Meditation".
            These steps also teaches in 'Isha Yoga Center'. If you wanna learn Modern Shambhavi quickly or fast like a crash course, then you should join "Inner Engineering Program" near by you.
            Because I am teaching everything from the basic, from the scratch on our YouTube channel and this Website. That's why to learn all things about "Ancient" Shambhavi Maha Mudra it will take sometime.
            You can't learn Shambhavi in a Minute or Hour or Day.
Shambhavi Maha Mudra is "Spiritual Journey". 

            So this was the First Session or Episode in Shambhavi Mahamudra Session.
