Vajra Mudra – The Gesture of The Fiery Thunderbolt

Vajra means both ‘diamond’ (indestructible) and  ‘thunderbolt’ (irresistible force) in Sanskrit.

The vajra is also a ritual object in Tibetan Buddhism

Garuda Mudra – The Gesture of The Mystical Eagle

This mudra will look familiar to kids and older people who used to make bird shadows with their hands. 🙂

Music: “Softer Gesticulation” by Dee Vigga aka Ultra Titan
Original “Gesticulation”:

I personally like to modify last stage of this mudra a little by pressing my right thumb pad gently against my chest, while keeping the left thumb wrapped around it. This tends to multiply the effect of the mudra since the thumb activates Agni (fire) energy.
