Hand Mudra For Weight Gain

This Mudra is required to be done when one feels lack of energy, enthusiasm and motivation in life. All seems dull and lifeless. One may perform this Mudra with both the hands by sitting in Sukhasan or Padmasan, and keeping the back of the palms on the knee, keeping the elbows straight.
