Mudra is used in the iconography of Hindu and Buddhist art of the Indian subcontinent and described in the scriptures, such as N?tya??stra, which lists 24 asa?yuta ("separated", meaning "one-hand") and 13 sa?yuta ("joined", meaning "two-hand") mudras. Mudra positions are usually formed by both the hand and the fingers. Along with ?sanas ("seated postures"), they are employed statically in the meditation and dynamically in the N??ya practice of Hinduism.
Hindu and Buddhist iconography share some mudras. In some regions, for example in Laos and Thailand, these are distinct but share related iconographic conventions.
According to Jamgon Kongtrul in his commentary on the Hevajra Tantra, the ornaments of wrathful deities and witches made of human bones (Skt: a??himudr?; Wylie: rus pa'i rgyanl phyag rgya) are also known as mudra "seals"
