Bhramara Hand Gesture (Mudra)

March 5th, 2008 by Anjali

When the Index finger in the Katakamukha mudra, is placed in between the middle finger and the thumb we get the Bhramara mudra. The Index finger can also be curled and placed. Bhramara looks like a Bee and thus it is called Bee shaped.

Lets look at the viniyogas shloka(uses) and its meaning

The shloka is as follows :

bhramarecha shukre pakshe sarase kokiladishu
bhramrakhyascha hastoyam kirtito bharatagame

It says that Bhramara can be used to denote

  • A Bee
  • A Parrot
  • A Wing
  • A Heron
  • A Cuckoo
  • Some other birds
