Wear a mask when you go to crowded places.

Is there any Spiritual Precautions/remedies for COVID-19?
Yes. There is a wonderful Mudra , formulated by our ancient sages, especially to save us from such dangerous diseases. It is called as PRAANA MUDRA.

Spiritual remedy 1:
What is a Mudra and how to do it?
The physical body is made up of five elements namely – Air, Water, Fire, Earth and Aakash (ether – the tiny intercellular spaces in the human body).
Imbalance of these elements disrupts the immunity system and is the root cause of all human disease(s) – both mental as well as physical.
Ancient Sages found out that - deficiency in any of these elements can be corrected, through Mudras.
When a finger representing an element is brought into contact with the thumb, that element is brought into balance. Therefore the disease caused by the imbalance is cured.  Mudras start electromagnetic currents within the body which balance various constituting elements and restore health. The joining of fingers creates an effect on the human body.
Ancient sages have designated the five fingers for these five elements viz.,
* Thumb      Fire
* Index        Air
* Middle      Aakash
* Ring         Earth
* Little        Water


AnguliMudra for immunity against illness
In this Mudra, the tips of both the little finger and the ring finger should touch the tip of the Thumb. The other two fingers, the Index finger and the middle finger would be extended outside.
Any dosha ( defects) present in the Life Line gets reduced. Also it is practiced , to remove the defects present in the Line of Mercury ,  underdeveloped Mount of Venus and Aggressive Mars .

Other Benefits:
1.   Increases immunity power, thereby reducing your chance of getting attacked by COVID-19 or for that matter, any type of diseases.Timing :- everyday do it for 15mts minimum. 45mts maximum ( 15-15-15)

2.   Helps in reducing blocks in arteries and veins.
3.   Helps in curing Mouth ulcers , acidity, stomach disorders and most problems related to the digestive system.
4.   Helps in regulating Menstrual disorders and solves most problems related to reproductive organs.
5.   Beneficial for people having Rheumatoid Arthritis.
6.   Regulates BP.
7.   Reduces skin dryness & skin irritation.
8.   Reduces the bad smell caused due to sweat and regulates it.
9.   As it improves the immunity system, doing this Mudra regularly --  prevents Cancer.
10. When done along with Apana Mudra , cures Diabetes.
11. Reduces the back pain significantly , caused due to slip(ed) disc and bulge(d)  disc.
12. Makes your mind calm, & helps you to sleep peacefully.

Spiritual remedy 2:
When devotees from Honkong sought blessings for relief from COVID-19 , our Periavaa, SriSriSri Sankara Vijayendra Saraswathi Swamigal  has advised to chant the Sri Vaidyanadha Ashtakam, blessed by Adi Sankara.

Though smallest in size, the little finger has greater importance in Palmistry than any other.  The little finger represents the qualities of the planet Mercury.
If it touches the first knot of the ring finger, then it is considered to be of normal length.
If it is little below the first knot of the ring finger, it is considered to be short. (fig.1)
If it is little above , then it is considered to be a long finger, than normal. (ref fig.2)

Persons with long little finger, have the gift of gab ( talking at length, smoothly) and are proficient at making new contacts and maintaining them. Their nervous system is well developed and they possess a sharp intelligence. A long fourth finger helps a person participate in politics, trade and various types of business activities. He knows how to make friends and use it to his own advantage. He is very alert. Many successful public speakers, actors, lawyers and business men have long little fingers.
Some palmists also believe, that a long little finger, is also a sign of good lover.

Persons with short mercury finger , suffer from inferiority complex. It indicates difficulty in relating with people both publicly and privately.

HEALTH:  Mercury finger has strong relation to the sex glands of both sexes.  When it is thin, he is mentally active in sex matters. If found thick, along with a over developed Mount of Venus and Aggressive mars, he would be more interested in physical aspect of sex matters.
An axial bend of the little finger , hints to problems related to reproduction organs and feet. (refer fig.3) .A slight lateral bend ( sideways) of the little finger, makes a person tactful and diplomatic.

The Ring finger gives us a clue about the person’s response to the external world and its influence upon him.  A person’s desire to impress others, glamour, to exhibit himself,  for fame, his degree of enthusiasm --- all these are indicated by the ring finger. At the base of the ring finger lies the Mount of Sun and hence it represents all the qualities of Sun.

The ring finger is said to be normal in length, when it reaches up to the middle of the top phalange of Saturn’s finger.

If the ring finger is longer than normal , the amount of self-confidence in a person increases considerably. He is prone to give importance to success and fame than money. He has more enthusiasm for life. (Refer fig.1) If it is equal to the length of the middle finger, a person’s  self confidence goes beyond limits.  He loves taking risks in gambling, horse racing  and other such risky speculations.

fig.1 long ring finger
If it is shorter than the index finger, it reduces the enthusiasm. 
A short ring finger , does not allow the person to take any risks.

An abnormally short  Ring finger saps up all the enthusiasm and creativity and makes a person gloomy. (refer fig2)

fig.2 abnormally short ring finger
HEALTH:  If there is any deformity/ defects , bend (fig 3) observed in this finger , then the weak health link would be heart issues and nervous disorders. If the Apollo finger appears, weak, lean and thin then the native may have defective blood circulation and  kidney function .

When the top phalange of this finger is the longest, then the person is a lover of beauty. Mentally he is an artist, poet or writer.

This finger is called the finger of balance. On one side, is the index finger which represents ego and on the other, the ring finger which denotes, self expression. Lying between them, the middle finger strikes a balance between the ego and the self expression. At the base of the middle finger lies the Mount of Saturn and hence it represents all the qualities of Saturn.

A middle finger slightly longer than the index and the ring finger is considered normal.
A person with a normally long middle finger is intelligent, sober and steady.
If it is longer than the normal, the person does not want to mix with people and tends to run away from social contact. He is a lover of solitude.
A short middle finger, indicates frivolity ( lack of respect/ seriousness) and lack of balance. It also reveals a miserly nature.
Crooked finger of Saturn indicates a slightly revengeful nature, proving oneself  “always right”  attitude, and slight mental imbalance. ( Remember  , a middle finger is the balance wheel) . Straighter it is , without any defects,  better balanced a person is. Palmist of ancient days, are of the opinion that a crook in the middle finger is a sign of illuck.  (refer fig)

Bent middle finger
HEALTH: Deformed middle finger is indicative of liver disturbances and faulty abdominal conditions. It also gives a predisposition to mental depression, taken together with other lines/marks present on the Palm. (refer fig)

The first or the Index finger represents the ego of a person. At the base of the index finger , lies the Mount of Jupiter and hence it carries the characteristics of Jupiter.

Curved Jupiter finger with a bad mount of mercury is a sign of dishonesty. A short and crooked Jupiter finger (Refer Fig.3) denotes low moral behavior pattern. Otherwise , with a defective Life line , it could mean, a health set back, related to a weak Jupiter mount.

We all know the seven major types of classifications of palms by the world renowned French Palmist  DÁrpentigny in the 19th century. They are 1) Elementary palm 2) Square palm 3) Conic Palm 4) Spatulate palm 5) Psychic palm 6) Philosophical palm and 7) The Mixed palm.

There is another type of classifying the palms based upon the 4 elements of the universe ,namely Earth, Water, Air and Fire, which was done by noted British palmist, Fred Gettings. His popular method can be applied more easily to most of the palms.

Brief explanation of each type along with pictures are given below:-


Physical appearance of the palm:  Short fingers with slightly longer palm than the Earth type.  A good number of strong lines with Whorl finger prints predominant.

Psychological aspect : Physically super dynamic, these people are always on the go, needing adventure and excitement and often channelling their energy in sports. The Life and soul of a party, they are wonderful with  people spreading enthusiasm, wherever they go. Happiest in the fast lanes, they tend to burn the candles on both the ends, often pushing them to their mental and physical limits. Fire people are restless and enthusiastic and dislike round about long stories. They demand direct straight forward communication. Just as the fire shoots its flames, assertively heavenwards, fire types seek, peak experiences. Ambitious, self motivated and enterprising fire types often have powerful and visible positions in sport,  politics, the military and in corporate worlds.

Fire people are impatient with emotional types.

These people can eat anything as they have vigorous metabolism and a robust constitution. High blood pressure, inflammatory conditions fevers and stress related ailments are their weak health links.
