February 1st, 2009 by Anjali

When the ring finger and the middle finger of both hands are placed one over the other and the Index finger and the little fingers point downwards we get the Khatava hasta.

Lets take a look at the viniyoga shloka (uses)

  • A Cot

  • A Palanquin, which is also known as Palkhi in India. Palkhi in oldentimes was used as a mode of transportation. It is a covered chair or a bed with poles and carried by two or four bearers.
