The Sanskrit word mudra means "attitude," "gesture," or "seal." The
Kularnava Tantramudra traces the word mudra to the root mud, meaning "to
delight in," and dru, meaning "to draw forth." In Yoga, hand mudras are
a subtle form of practice used to concentrate the mind, balance the
body's vital energy, and awaken the spirit of devotion. The sixty mudras
presented here are a selection of some of the most powerful and commonly
practiced mudras of the Indian Yoga Tradition.
