For thousands of years hand mudras have been used in India for healing, storytelling, emotional expression, and to evoke and convey elevated spiritual states. For the first time, the elaborate system of mudras – as applied in yoga and Indian dance – has been organized into a comprehensive, fully-indexed, and cross-referenced format that allows readers access to this still esoteric body of knowledge. Mudras of India presents over two hundred fifty photographed hand mudras, each with detailed instructions on technique, application, health and spiritual benefits, and historical background. The authors have extensively researched the usage of mudras and their significance in the larger context of Indian spiritual systems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mudras of India - Wonderful! Oct. 12 2012
By Megan Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book fills a long overdue need in English. It is clearly a reference book with lots of valuable information. A great tool for Yoga practitioners wanting to deepen meditation practice. The dance mudra references which comprise well over half the entries are mostly derived from Odissi and are different for Kathak...my area of expertise. I wish there was an index of dance and another of healing/meditation mudras.
Overall I would give it the full five stars because of the scholarship, care and clarity of presentation.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A beautiful & amazing book that any ayurvedic/yoga student interested in mudras must have. This book is great for both beginners & more advanced practitioners in yoga and Indian dance. Each mudra is well pictured, thoroughly described in technique, application, and benefits. I encourage every student of yoga to dive into this wonderful and healing art with "Mudras of India".
