Shakata Hand Gesture (Mudra)

November 25th, 2008 by Anjali

When the Bhramara hasta is held in both hands, we get the Shakata Hasta.

lets take a look at the viniyoga (uses) shloka

rakshasabhinaye prayaha shakato viniyujyate

It says that the Shakata hasta is used to enact a demon. Thus when shakata hasta is held close the face , it indicates vicious teeth of a demon. Also when it is held at the eye level it denotes the protruding eyes.

Also let us know any other interpretation it can have.
