Supreme Wisdom

What is Vajra Mudra? In the Vajra Mudra, the right index finger is wrapped by left hand, also known as “Bodhyangi mudra”, the mudra of supreme wisdom or the fist of wisdom mudra.

There are multiple interpretations for this gesture. For example, the right index finger may represent wisdom, hidden by the world of appearances (the left hand). In Vajrayana Buddhism the gesture represents the union of male and female principles. Another interpretation is that the erect finger represents Knowledge cloaked in the illusion of the material world. Another version has it that the index finger is man, while the five enclosing fingers of the other hand are the elements of earth, air, fire, water and ether.
