    Hi Anjali, would it be possible for you to give the sanskrit shliokas for all the hasta viniyogas?

    Thanks.

    Can you tell me what might be indicated when someone uses Chandrakala with the right hand and Suchi with the left hand at the same time? Such as in this picture with Donald Trump? http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/features/donald-trump-murdoch-ailes-nbc-816131 THANK YOU!
