Shaped in “mudra” gestures, an aspect of Eastern classical dance. In the “Jnana mudra,” the thumb touches the forefinger, with the palm up. This gesture symbolizes wisdom. In the “Varada mudra” the open hand is facing upwards. This gesture symbolizes hope. Symbolically, these two hands holding tea lights convey the following invitation: ”May wisdom guide you and hope sustain you.”
