Additional name: Langula
Description: Kangula Mudra I is the nineteenth gesture of the twenty-one mudras of a hand (Asamyukta Hastas) described in the Abhinaya Darpana. It is also noted in the Natya Sastra. According to mythology, this mudra came from Shiva when he made a small ball with the poison that came from the Sea of the Milky Way and held it with his hand to form a Kangula. The corresponding sage is Kumaraswamy, the race is Siddha, the colour is golden and the protective deity is Lakshmi or Padma.
Technique: Place the ring finger in the centre of the palm and separate the other fingers. In a variant of this mudra, the tips of all the remaining fingers touch each other.
