• The hamsa hand is a universal sign of protection, power and strength. It brings its owner happiness, luck, health and good fortune.

      The word “Hamsa” literally means “five,” representing the fingers of the right hand. For Hindus and Buddhists, it symbolizes chakras, energy flow in the body, the five senses and the mudras that effect them.

      Each finger connects to an element and chakra:
      Thumb- Fire element, solar plexus chakra.
      Forefinger- Air element, heart chakra.
      Middle Finger- Ethereal elements, throat chakra.
      Ring Finger- Earth element, root chakra.
      Pinky Finger- Water element, sacral chakra.

      Hand Facing Down or Varada Mudra: When the Hamsa hand faces down, it opens you up to all of the abundance and goodness of the universe, welcoming them into your life.
