Utsanga Hand Gesture (Mudra)

April 7th, 2008 by Anjali

When the right and left palms touches the left and right shoulder respectively in Mrigashirsha mudra we get the Utsanga hasta.

Utsanga

Lets take a look at the Viniyoga shloka (uses)

Alingena cha Lajjayamangadadipradarshane
balaanaam shikshane chayamutsange yujyate karaha

The shloka says that Utsangha is used to denote

  • An embrace
  • To show Modesty, Shyness etc
  • Display of Armlets and other such ornaments
  • Coaching children

Return to Samyukta hasta
