Dola Hand Gesture (Mudra)

March 12th, 2008 by Anjali

When the pataka hasta is placed to the sides of the thigh we get the Dola hasta. The most important aspect is how the elbows are held. See to it that the elbow bone face down and the inner side of elbows face up. The inner side of the Palm in pataka hasta face the thigh.

Lets see the viniyoga (uses) of the Dola hasta.

The shloka says that Dola can be used
