Jnana Mudra: The Gesture of Wisdom


Jnana mudra is a psychic gesture of knowledge and is one of the most common mudras used by yogis in meditation. The name comes from the Sanskrit word jnana,meaning "knowledge" and mudra, meaning "gesture." To perform this mudra, the index finger folds and touches the base of the thumb. In jnana mudra, the thumb symbolizes Brahman, or the Supreme Reality. The index finger symbolizes the individual self, the inner reality, or the jiva. The connection of the thumb and the index finger means the union of the supreme and inner reality. The remaining three fingers represent the three qualities, orgunas, of nature: sattva, raja and tamas ("balance, action and inaction").
