Are you wondering what a specific Buddha hand gesture means? You've come to the right place. The explanation of top 10 Buddha hand gestures, along with feng shui tips for the best placement of Buddha sculptures, is here for you.

What is Namaskara Mudra? Namaskara, or Anjali mudra, is the hand gesture that evokes greeting another being with the utmost respect and adoration for the Divine in all. As you can see, the greeting is expressed in a form of prayer coming from one's heart or the third eye.

The Namaskara Mudra can be expressed with palms at the heart level or at the forehead. Why? Because only with the heart, or with a deeper spiritual insight (third eye) can one truly see that we are all expressions of the same light.

It is interesting to note that, as the story goes, true Buddhas no longer make this hand gesture. I guess because once you are one with the Light/Divine energy, you no longer need to express adoration for it. By definition, expressing something means you are outside it.
