Do you know the Sanskrit names for parts of the hand?

Is the sight of our own hands auspicious? Are there names of parts of the hand in Sanskrit?

The human hands are an important part of the body. They aide in everyday tasks like eating, drinking, writing, picking up things... A hand is made up of 27 bones and 12 different muscles which give the hand the immense dexterity and precision needed for all kinds of varied activities. 

A very popular quote that one reads is, 'a man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist'. The use of hand is vital for all three. The labourer, craftsman and the artist.

It is through our hands that our minds are revealed. 

Our hands are our karma.

An ancient Sanskrit shlok explaines just how  valuable our hands are and makes us think that we mustn't take our hands or our abilities for granted. They have divine blessings for us to be able to do great good.

कराग्रे वसते लक्ष्मीः करमध्ये सरस्वती ।
करमूले तु गोविन्दः प्रभाते करदर्शनम् ॥

karāgre vasate lakṣmīḥ karamadhye sarasvatī ।
karamūle tu govindaḥ prabhāte karadarśanam ॥

Devi Lakshmi resides at the top of the hand.
Mother Saraswati resides in the middle.
Shri Bhagwan Govind resides in the lower part of the hand.
Each morning we must look at and seek darshan of our hands.
