Varada Hasta Mudra of Hindu Gods



Varada Hasta is the pose of hands common to most Hindu Gods. One hand of majority of the murtis (idols) of Hindu Gods depicts this pose. The Varada Hasta Mudra shows the pose of the hand while conferring a boon.
 
Varada Hasta pose shows the palm of the left hand with the fingers pointing downward. The hand is usually exposed to the devotee and is empty.

In some murtis the hand carries bolus – a round shaped object. When the hand is carrying an object the fingers are closed but exposing the palm and the object.


Those people expecting wish fulfillment should worship murti having Varada Hasta pose.
