They replace the normal somatic and verbal components of their spells with nine seals components; these require that the caster have a hand free, but don't add any traits to the Cast a Spell action (preventing the Rai Sho postulants from triggering certain reactions, such as Attack of Opportunity, when they Cast a Spell).
