Ceremonial Yoga

Plucking The Rose
This small gesture is often referred to in the language of Ceremonial Yoga.
In essence, the image describes a gesture where-in the hands and wrists
melt into a delicate intent,
and form a mudra that looks like a hand plucking a rose with the thumb and one or two fingers.

Depending upon the phrase in which the gesture arises,
we may be plucking the rose from the heart
(as in The Panther)
or we may be plucking the rose from the earth
(perhaps rising out of a kneeling position
in a transformation of The Lancer)
perhaps from thin air
(as in the transformation of The Sword of Truth)
