Tamrachuda Hand Gesture (Mudra)

When the Index finger of the Suchi Mudra is bent, we get the Tamrachuda hasta. Also while the doing the Mukula hasta, if the Index finger is held like a question mark, we get the Tamrachuda. Tamrachua means a Cock or a Cocks head.


Lets see the Viniyoga shloka

Kukkutadau bakay kakay ushtre vatse cha lekhane

This shloka says that tamrachuda can denote :

  • Kukkutadau : A Rooster, Cock or to show bird heads
  • bakay: A Heron, Crane
  • kakay:  A Crow
  • Oshtre: A Camel
  • vatse: A Calf
