Hasta of the Week: Musti

Hold on.  Hold on tight.  

This hasta means "Steadfastness, grasping one's hair, holding things." It can also signify wrestlers fighting (Kanakasabha).  For me this week it means holding on to this relationship and understanding it better.  

This is my way of learning these hastas.  There are two kinds: one handed and gestures with two hands, asamyuta hasta and samyuta hasta respectively.  I'm going to start slowly with one-handed gestures.  Namaste
