All Right

Mudras are sacred postures for the hands, used in yoga and meditation. Buddhas, boddhisatvas, gods and goddesses are frequently depicted with their hands held in specific mudras. Yogis describe mudras as attitudes of energy flow linking prana with cosmic forces. There are thousands of nerves in the fingers and hands, linking to every part of the body, and mudras are believed to help activate and heal every part of the body.

In some systems of symbology the thumb is associated with the planet Mars – and refers to self-assertion and is associated with the fire element. In Western culture we’re all familiar with the ‘thumb’s up’ gesture, asserting ‘all right’ and ‘go ahead.’
