Shakata Hand Gesture (Mudra)

When the Bhramara hasta is slightly opened, 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.

Take a look at the video, where Shakata starts at 0:20 secs.
