Cin-Mudra (“consciousness seal”)  is the symbolic psychic gesture of consiousness.
The three fingers standing out represent body, mind and intellect i.e standing out, going beyond or transcending one's body, mind and intellect.
The index finger bending - Meaning - surrendering or annihilating one's ego.
The result of the above two is a circle formed by the index finger touching the thumb - i.e one realizes the Supreme.

The conclusions of Rig and other Vedas,
The heart of Sivagama and allied scriptures
Are but the divine hand-gestures of Cin Mudra;
In them who realized this but once in their heart
Will the Waters of Bliss forever well up.
