~Abhaya~

Abhaya is a Sanskrit word meaning “fearlessness.” In both Buddhist and Hindu philosophy, the concept of fearlessness is represented by the abhaya mudra and indicates spiritual power of the yogi that is gesturing the mudra. The Bhagavad Gita emphasizes fearlessness as one of the fundamental spiritual virtues.

Within yoga practice and philosophy, yogis aspire to develop the inner self and transcend worldly desires, hindrances or obstacles by harnessing spiritual fearlessness and strength.
