Wondrous Words Wednesday

May 10, 2017

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where you can share new words that you’ve encountered or spotlight words you love.  Feel free to get creative!   If you want to play along, grab the button, write a post and come back and add your link to Mr. Linky!

I found one more word in GEORGIA by Dawn Tripp.

1. mudra – “The Buddha’s hand.  A mudra.”

A mudra is a symbolic or ritualistic gesture in Hinduism and Buddhism. Some mudras involve the entire body but most are performed with the hands and fingers.

    Wordy Wednesday is my name for this… like you, I’ve been collecting fun words and blogging them on Wednesdays. In Yoga we have several mudras, especially Anjali mudra, the familiar one with hands pressed together near one’s heart. Good word!
