Ashlesha nakshatra is ruled by the Nagas, and the symbol associated with this nakshatra is a Serpent.
In sanskrit the word “naga” means serpents. Mudras are hand positions/gestures that can help us channel the flow or prana/energy within us!
Naga Mudra can provide us with deep insights and clarity about our own mind!
Serpents represents mysticism and are full of occult and hidden wisdom! Just like the snakes that shed their skin – On the day of the Lunar Eclipse we have the power to let go of all the toxins and poisons that we have accumulated over lifetimes.
One of the characteristic of a serpent is the way it can move through obstacles. They do not disturb anyone unless and until someone pose a threat to their freedom. Similary this mudra gives us the strength to clear our obstacles and limitations.
