The Vajroli mudra offers many benefits. It is used to stimulate the flow of energy to the sexual organs. It has been known to cure premature ejaculation.
The Vajroli Mudra allows men and women to enjoy sex for a longer period of time. Not only that, it’s also helpful for dealing with urinary disorders, premature ejaculation and other complications. When practiced for a long time it also helps to activate the chakras and to achieve heightened levels of self control. This all occurs at the early stages. You’ll see those benefits without too much practice.
The vajroli mudra becomes more important, however, after years of practice, at which point it becomes a pivotal to enlightenment.
That might sound a little strange. Why precisely would this mudra be important to enlightenment? (Editor: You might like to read this introductory guide to enlightenment)
The ancient yogic systems view sexual energy as one of the primary energies. Through the practice of mudras this energy can be challenged upwards through the body. By transferring the energy upwards it flows into the brain and through the chakras, activating each chakra and leading towards enlightenment. The advanced stages of the Vajroli mudra are called Amroli and Sajroli, and can be found in many yogic texts, though most people will most likely not reach this stage of development.
The Vajroli Mudra has a specific meaning.
The word Vajroli can be translated from Sanskrit to mean “Thunderbolt.” The mudra creates energy in the genitals. The mudra will increase spiritual energy to the sexual organs. After creating this energy a man and woman will be able to enjoy sex for longer. So taken all in all, this mudra quite literally means “Gesture to stimulate thunderbolt energy in the genitalia.”
Here’s how to perform the vajroli mudra position
Make sure to read the steps through carefully before practicing and also consult a doctor before beginning the vajroli mudra. (<—disclaimer).
- Sit comfortably (preferably in sukhasana position–legs crossed). Place your hands on your thighs and sit relaxed with your eyes closed.
- Focus your mind calmly on the muscles of your sphincter around the pubic bone.
- Imagine pulling energy up through your spine as you breathe in through your nose. Hold the breath at the Ajna chakra (between the eyebrows). Now you need to contract your muscles around your sexual organs (imagine preventing yourself from urinating).
- Contract the muscles ten times while you continue to hold your breath.
- Breathe out through your nose as you make the tenth contraction. Feel sexual energy rising in you as you do this.
