anjali…intention toward awakening.

June 11, 2014

 

anjaliThe gesture anjali mudra looks like the Indian form of greeting, in which people bring their palms together and say “Namaste,” which means “salutations to you.” These gestures are not the same, though. In anjali mudra, the palms are not flat against each other; the knuckles at the base of the fingers are bent a little, creating a space between the palms and fingers of the two hands. When done properly, the shape of the anjali mudra resembles a flower bud that is yet to open, symbolizing the opening of our heart. This signifies the potential for and intention to progress toward greater spiritual awakening.
