Samayukta Hastas or Double Hand Gestures in Bharatanatyam
Samyukta Hastas are also called as Double hand gestures or Combined hand gestures. Unlike Asamyukta hastas, these gestures require use of both the palms to convey the message or a particular meaning. For example the Anjali Mudra is a simple gesture where both the palms are joined to mean a Namskara or to imply salutations. I have also put some images of double hand gestures. Each gestures has its own uses which is termed as Viniyoga. I am writing a separate post on each of these mudras.
