Transliteration: "vāmahastasya grīvāyāṃ tarjanīṃ dakṣiṇena tu ॥8॥ aṅguṣṭhaṃ unnataṃ kṛtvā dhvajena dhyānamārabhet ।"

Translation: Touching the left hand kept in front of the neck (heart) with fore finger and keeping the right thumb raised upright is known as dhvaja mudra. The sadhaka should commence the practice of meditation by holding this Dhvaja Mudra.
