Sea Gazer Description
YBT POSE 120: -
The Sea Gazer is a convenient way to teach children Jnana Mudra. This is where the tip of the thumb and index finger touch to form a circle and the other three fingers are extended with the palm open. In yoga the index finger represents the individual soul and the thumb represents the universal soul. When the mudra is practiced the two souls connect but the thumb subtly presses down on top of the index finger so that the individual soul or 'ego' is absorbed by the goodness of the universal soul. The palm is held open to receive all the knowledge that the universe has to offer. The children are offered an insight into the nuances of the yoga tradition through the characterisation of the Sea Gazer.
