Natural Meaningful Mudra
“A mudra (Sanskrit मुद्रा, “seal”, “mark”, or “gesture”; Tibetan: ཕྱག་རྒྱ་) is a symbolic or ritual gesture in Hinduism and Buddhism: it is a spiritual gesture and an energetic seal of authenticity employed in the iconography and spiritual practice of Indian religions.
“One hundred and eight mudras are used in regular Tantric rituals.
“In yoga, mudras are used in conjunction with pranayama (yogic breathing exercises), generally while seated in Padmasana, Sukhasanaor Vajrasana pose, to stimulate different parts of the body involved with breathing and to affect the flow of prana in the body.”
However, we don’t walk around doing mudras, do we?
Or do we? …
The whole point of spiritual association is that it’s got to work,
and we have to see it working.
There is a mudra that says it all;
it is natural to all of us,
and usually comes and is returned with a smile.
We all understand it without questioning the motivation,
or expecting anything in return,
and we fall in love for a moment.
The ‘gesture of fearlessness’ represents
protection, peace, benevolence and the dispelling of fear.
