[...] The uses of the padmakośa-hasta posture are not mentioned in the Viṣṇudharmottarapurāṇa. But according to the Abhinayadarpaṇa, this posture denotes some round shaped objects like breast of a woman, ball, round shaped cooking pot, egg and bell. The padmakośa posture is also used to show the blowing buds of flowers like marigold, lotus etc. Some kind of fruits like mango and wood apple are also portrayed with his hand posture.
