Yesterday's answer, today's question

Nobody is answering:) Intimidated by your own lack of knowledge?? Ha ha!!

Any case, the weight in the nirlamba sarvangasana is on your neck entirely. How strong is it to hold your entire body... ? That is the question:)

QUESTION: Why does one hold the mudra -- hand gesture -- while doing meditation or pranayama?(Secret: Even I have to think about this:)

I would guess that it is to apply pressure or activate some of the key nerve centers, so that they enhance the effects of pranayama..

To channel the energy back into the body? Open hands will lead to energy drain, which would defeat the purpose of meditation, which needs focused energy.
