Meaning of the Abhaya mudra
In the original Buddhist context, the Abhaya mudra is both a gesture of greeting and a shield from ourselves and others. As a result, this mudra both represents divine protection and transmits a sense of bliss. The Abhaya mudra is one of the oldest mudras. The right hand is held with the palm out to the observer at the level of the heart. The upright palm facing forward symbolizes the gesturer's personal strength and openness.
Choose between the Abhaya mudra pendant alone, on our sparkling 1.5mm anchor chain, or on a handcrafted bordeaux red cord. Like the pendant, the chain is made of sterling silver gold-plated with lustrous 24-carat gold. The cord is twisted 108 times and accented with four small gold-plated beads and a lobster-claw clasp. Behind the hook and the elongated ring of the clasp are two special knots that can be used to adjust the cord to the perfect length.
Beautiful jewellery expresses our personality. You can also customize your mudra necklace by choosing your own chain or cord. We have chains in different styles and lengths and hand-twisted cords in a wide range of colors.
Packaged in an elegant gift box with an explanatory card about the Abhaya mudra, the pendant makes a perfect gift for yourself or someone you care about.
