Surya or Sun signifies fiery energy. Surya mudra increases fire element in the body. This mudra decreases earth element in the body. Mudras are said to work on the balance of the five elements within the boy and they help to alter this balance in order to achieve specific ends. Surya is the Sanskrit word for the Sun and the Surya Mudra is so called because it increases the element of fire in the body.
This mudra is formed by first placing the tip of the ring finger on the base of the thumb and then bringing gentle pressure of the thumb upon this finger. This amounts to suppression of element earth (residing in the ring finger) by element fire (residing in the thumb). The earth element thus suppressed, fire is able to rage unopposed.
