The name derivates of the
connection of the negative and positive side of the Venus mounds on each hand,
which is the fleshy area at the base of the thumb.
Venus represents sensuality,
and sexuality. This Mudra channels the sexual energy, and balances the
glandular system. If you place the hands in this Mudra on your lap, it will
help you to concentrate better.
The thumbs represent the ego.
It’s done interlacing the fingers. For women the right pinky stays at the
bottom, for men the left pinky stays at the bottom. One of the thumbs is
touching the fleshy part between the other thumb and the index finger.
