Holy Book of Gestures

In the Marseilles tarot Le Pape is pictured gesturing with two fingers up and two fingers down. Images of Buddha show his hands in the Earth-touching position, the bhūmisparśa mudrā. Unlike the obscure practices of many new religions, gestures are universal and widely practiced, such as Come Hither, Halt, and OK. Gestures are not accidental; they have deep meanings, especially for adherents to the Holy Book of Gestures, which depicts gestures from all religions and all cultures, and is being added to every year.
