  2. Is it same as Udana mudra. If it is not same, please explain it madam

    1. Yes ,It looks the same but some experts say that one hand must point downwards and the other towards the the sky.There is also another version of Hansi mudra where the index finger is straight out instead of the little finger.There are various versions .For Hansi mudras chantings are not recommended but some recommend chanting for Udana. You can follow one particular Guru and a few mudras suitable for you and can follow whatever feels right for you..
