Sannidhimudrā (सन्निधिमुद्रा) or simply Sannidhi is the name of a mudrā described in the Īśvarasaṃhitā 67.—Accordingly, “the two hands are to be joined and turned upwards. The two thumbs shall be away from own little finger. This is sannidhimudrā”. Mūdra (eg., Sannidhimudrā) is so called as it gives joy to the tattvas in the form of karman for those who offer spotless worship, drive out the defects which move about within and without and sealing up of what is done.
