Chin mudra is an extremely good Mudra that can help you go inwards. It creates a more conducive environment within and hence it is also being used while doing pranayamas. Hence it is a very good Mudra for mindfulness meditation purpose.  It also routes the pranic energy back into our system, hence increasing the energy levels.
