To practice this mudra
Hold the left hand slightly cupped, facing upward, at the level of the navel.
Place the right hand, also slightly cupped, over the left so that the right fingers rest on the outer border of the left thumb, creating a hollow space within the hands.
Relax the shoulders back and down, with the forearms resting agaist the sides of the abdomen with the spine naturally aligned.
