Hamsa Hand Incense Holder
Hamsa is a gesture symbolising freedom from fear, protection from evil and good fortune. Goddesses of the Hindu pantheon are often depicted with an open raised right hand, a kind and gentle reassurance that everything will be okay and they are with us. This incense holder is a recreation of that gesture. Select which incense is right for you in this moment, light your stick and sit with your eyes closed in front of the Hamsa hand, breathing in the protection and good fortune this powerful symbol offers.
"Hamsa" means five, representing the five fingers of the right hand. For Hindus and Buddhists, the open right hand represents the chakras and free flowing energy in the body, the five senses and the mudras that effect them.
