    Mudras are a non-verbal mode of communication and self-expression, consisting of hand gestures and finger-postures. They are symbolic sign based finger patterns taking the place, but retaining the efficacy of the spoken word, and are used to evoke in the mind ideas symbolizing divine powers or the deities themselves. The composition of a mudra is based on certain movements of the fingers; in other words, they constitute a highly stylized form of gestureal communication. It is an external expression of ‘inner resolve’, suggesting that such non-verbal communications are more powerful than the spoken word.

      Makes absolute sense. It creates the impossibility of 'throwing words around' or using them loosely, or speaking before you think about what you're saying. Every gesture, or word, is clearly thought out and clearly 'spoken' as it is intended.
