“Mudras are not simply a means of personal expression or self-empowerment, but ways of communicating with the deity, often in meditation, and drawing divine grace in our lives. Mudras reflect various types of meaning and have a symbolic value, particularly for projecting certain attitudes and emotions, or representing various powers or deities. They can also serve to focus the mind and direct its power of attention. Mahamudra describes the practise of looking directly at the fundamental nature of mind. It also denotes the highest enlightenment.”
