Mudra is a combination of Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara (restraining of the senses from external objects) and Dhaarana (with steady mind). Mantra (a religious formula), Yantra (religious instruments) and Tantra (rituals) will help us to perform Dhyana (Meditate). Mudra is a part of Yoga or Tantra. Mudras help us to concentrate and to control our mind. Mudra is a sign.
The word "Mudra" originated from Sanskrit word "Mudh" meaning "Happiness" and "Dra" meaning "absorb" or "receive". Mudras help us to concentrate through Dhyana, helping our body to get aligned with mind, resulting in happiness.
By practicing Asanas, Pranayamas and Mudras the Kundalini (Cosmic) energy will flow through the Sushumna Naadi. Mudras and Bandhaas are nothing but Vayu Dhaaranas. Mental stability can be gained through regular practice of Mudras. They help in treating all the ailments and by enhancing the Jataragni (digestive enzymes).
Mudras can be devotional or spiritual too. They depict the relationship between Prana shakti (energy in our body) and Viswa shakti (universal/ cosmic energy).
Once the complete enlightenment of Pancha Bhootas are attained, one could even win over the Mrityu (Death).
