1. LITTLE FINGER-THE PHYSICAL BODY:
The physical body is obtained from the physical parents. Physical body is the least part of the totality of self! That is why it is represented by the little finger! You remember when you were a small kid; you said "Teacher teacher!" and you upheld the little finger to indicate the nature call!
2. RING FINGER- THE MIND:
When two hearts, when two minds, meet and vibrate at the same frequency, there is marriage and rings are exchanged only on the ring finger! Not any other finger!
Remember the second finger is much bigger then the little finger.
That is, the "Mind" is so much important than the body. The Mind infact is the total controller of the body.
3. MIDDLE FINGER - THE INTELLECT:
The Intellect differentiates between good and the bad; truth and un-truth; correct and the incorrect: beautiful and the ugly.. irespective of the society factors.
Where "The Mind" is automatically prejudiced , The Intellect is less prejudiced and more un prejudiced.The intellect is the sum-total distillate of all the Experiences of soul.4.THE INDEX FINGER REPRESENTS THE INDIVIDUAL SELF:
When you call somebody, you use the index finger, not any other finger! In fact, you are not your body; you are not your body; you are not your mind; you are not your intellect. you are you, the Atma, the Self.
The Atma is waht you are! Atma is nothing but an Eternal Speak of Consciousness and Energy! the Individual self is otherwise called as "JEEVATMA".
5.THE UNIVERSAL SELF IS REPRESENTED BY THE THUMB FINGER:
The source-parent of individual self is the universal self. We are the different in our Physical Bodies, the Minds and the intellects. But we have the same ATMIC source and we are all one at the level of ATMA.
The source-parent-self of the infinite number of Individual Selves is called as the Universal self.
The source-parent-self is otherwise called as " BRAHMATMA".
