I have noticed so many people from all over the world utilizing this sacred greeting originating in India. I thought it would be a great idea to write a small blog on its meaning.

Pronounced "Nam-as-stay".

From the ancient sanskrit, its meaning is quite profound.

An Indian greeting, simply translated, "I bow to the divine in you"; from the root words:

Namas - bow, reverential salutation (from "Nam" - humbly submitting)

Te - to you, acknowledging the divine presence in another.

Traditionally said while bringing the palms together at the heart in prayer position and lightly bowing the head

and shoulders.

The traditional Indian form of salutation, a respectful greeting recognizing the equality of all and the sacredness of all. "The God/Goddess in me greets the God/Goddess in you." The gesture (mudra) of namaste is made by bringing together both palms of the hands before the heart.

One beautiful interpretation: I honor that place in you where the whole Universe resides. And when I am in that place in me and you are in that place in you, there is only one of us.

The light within me honors the light within you.
