There is anger, and there is anger. You guys won't believe me. But there is the rash, here-today, gone tomorrow anger(Vata dosha); there is the simmering, damn-i'll-get-u-anyhow anger (pitta dosha); i'll-never-forgive-you-you-creep anger (kapha). There are several types of anger. All anger is like a lump of burning coal in your hand, as Buddha is credited with having said. You hold it, and it only burns you. The thing is, if you hang on it, in whatever form it takes, it will cause lots of diseases. Often, I find I can predict the backdrop of some anger in most of the diseases people say they have -- and how do you let go of it. Often, till you meditate, it is near impossible. But at least you can try to release some of the damage of the chemical of anger from  your body (cortisol).
Some poses which heal and cool you down, from inside are,in all types of anger are:

  • Shashankasana (hare pose)
  • Balasana (baby pose)
  • Paschimottanasana (seated forward bend)
  • Pranamasana (prayer pose-- on the knees version)
Jal mudra may help an immediate outbreak of inflammation: touch tip of little finger to tip of thumb.

Cure yourself: happy sadhana!
