There are several different traditional crossed-hand positions from which to choose to complete the crossed-leg posture: (a) the left hand may be placed on the right thigh and the right hand on the left thigh; (b) the left wrist may be crossed diagonally over the right wrist, both resting between the knees; (c) the left hand, palm upward, may be placed inside the right palm; (d) the left hand may clasp the right one as if shaking hands; (e) each hand may cross the breast and rest on the opposite shoulder; (f) both hands may rest together in--and be supported by--the lap, the left palm inside the right one, both vertically upright.
