Note: Symbolic gesture of the body, often particularly focused on the hand and fingers, used in in Indian dance, Hindu and Buddhist ritual, ceremonies, and art, and other contexts. Also used in yoga, meditation, and other activities. Types of mudra represent various concepts, such as reassurance or meditation. These symbolic or ritual hand positions have deep roots in Indic religious tradition. Types of mudra in sculpture and other visual arts are relatively restricted in number, given that movement is necessarily not incorporated.
