April 2nd, 2009 by Anjali

When both hands held in Alapadma hasta are crossed at the wrists and placed near the chest we get the Avahitta hand gesture.

Lets take a look at the viniyoga shloka: (uses)

Srungara Natanechiva Leelaa Kandukadharane

This gesture is used to show :
1) Love
2) Playing with balls (can be any balls not just rubber, but also flower balls like jasmine etc) like throw and catch
3) Bosom
