Katakaa Hand Gesture (Mudra)

April 16th, 2008 by Anjali

While in the Simhamukha hand gesture, the Middle finger and the ring finger is bent to form an arch. Also the thumb is slightly bent. Thus a “C” shape is formed with the Middle finger, Ring finger and the thumb. The other fingers are Erect.

This Hasta can be used to denote:

  • A Bracelet
  • Holding of Dumro (drums) by lord Nataraja.
  • An Animal head.
