Hamsa is a symbol of good luck and protection. People who wear hamsa are believed to be protected from ill intent. When facing down, hamsa is said to invite good luck, fertility, and abundance in one's life. Hamsa facing down is also called the Varada Mudra, and is also believed to invite answers to prayers and manifestations. Hamsa was first used in ancient Mesopotamia as a protective amulet. In Jewish culture, hamsa is known as the Hand of Miriam, sister of Moses, and is believed to bring good luck. Hamsa also means five in Hebrew and this is said to symbolize the five books of Torah. In Islamic culture, hamsa is called the Hand of Fatima, who is Prophet Muhammad's daughter and is believed to bring good luck as well. The five fingers of the hamsa symbolize the five pillars of Islam. In Hinduism, the hamsa represents the chakras and their mudras (hand gestures) that direct the flow of energy and the five senses. It is believed that wearing the hamsa helps heal mental and physical problems by helping energy flow into the chakras.
