Abhaya Hasta Mudra of Hindu Gods

Abhaya Hasta is the pose of hands common to most Hindu Gods. One hand of several of the murtis (idols) of Hindu Gods depicts this pose. The Abhaya Hasta Mudra shows the pose of the hand while conferring protection. Abhaya means to give shelter or protection.

In Abhaya Hasta Mudra, the palm of the hand is depicted with fingers pointing upwards. The mudra is in such a way that one feels as if the deity is enquiring about the welfare of the devotee.

Those people seeking refuge and escape from materialistic values should meditate on murtis having Abhaya Hasta pose.
