HINAMUDRA: A teaching on the theory and practice of Buddhism for lethargic, indulgent, lazy, depressed and spaced out couch potatoes, for obsessive blue-collar and white-collar busy-bees feeding an army of family members, for those who eat meat, drink alcohol, have all kinds of kinky fantasies, and just keep going to teachings but never practice — but who nevertheless have fervent devotion towards wisdom, the Buddha, and the path of Buddhism — from one who is seasoned and experienced in all the above forms, knows them well, and lives with them all the time.

Pali, Hīna, (pp. of jahati) 1. inferior, low; poor, miserable; vile, base, abject, contemptible, despicable.


Sanskrit "seal", "mark", or "gesture"; THL: chakgya) is a symbolic or ritual gesture in Hinduism and Buddhism. While some mudras involve the entire body, most are performed with the hands and fingers. A mudrā is a spiritual gesture and an energetic seal of authenticity employed in the iconography and spiritual practice of Indian religions.
