The mudras are symbolic ritual gesture in Buddhism and Hinduism. While a few, require the involvement of the entire body but most are done with the use of hands and fingers. Mudra is used in the iconography of Hindu and Buddhist art of the Indian subcontinent and described in the scriptures, such as N?tya??stra, which lists 24 asa?yuta("separated", meaning "one-hand") and 13 sa?yuta ("joined", meaning "two-hand") mudras. Mudra positions are usually formed by both the hand and the fingers. Along with ?sanas ("seated postures"), they are employed statically in the meditation and dynamically in the N??ya practice of Hinduism. One hundred and eight mudras are used in Tantric rituals.

The abhaya mudra symbolizes protection, peace and dispelling of fear (Abhaya in Sanskrit). As per Buddhist texts, the lord had made this gesture upon attaining enlightenment. This was also the gesture made by the god while being attacked by an angry elephant and managing to calm it down. The gesture is made with the right hand raised to shoulder height, arm bent, and palm facing outward. The gesture demonstrates that the hand is empty of weapons and thus indicates friendship and peace. When the right hand is in the abhaya mudra, the left hand usually hangs loosely at the side of the body or makes the varada mudra, or gift-giving gesture.
