Asaṃyukta (असंयुक्त) or Asaṃyuktahasta refers to one of the three types of “hand gestures” (Hasta) (in Indian Dramas), according to the Viṣṇudharmottarapurāṇa, an ancient Sanskrit text which (being encyclopedic in nature) deals with a variety of cultural topics such as arts, architecture, music, grammar and astronomy.—The hasta-mudrās are very essential to denote some particular action or state in dancing and these mudrās are formed with the help of hands and fingers. The term Asaṃyukta denotes that which is not connected. Asaṃyukta-hastas are the dancing postures made only by single hand. It may be called as single hand gesture. In the Viṣṇudharmottarapurāṇa, twenty two kinds of asaṃyukta-hastas are mentioned.
