Often associated with the Hindu Sage, Lord Buddha, this mudra is placed in the lap near the solar plexus. On each hand, a circle is formed by bringing the tip of the index finger to the tip of the thumb.
The knuckles of the hands are held together as shown in the picture. The Enlightenment Mudra is used to quiet the mind and to strengthen the flow of prana within the neuro-hormonal system.
