In India when people meet and part we often say, “Namaste” (mostly used like Hello or Hi or even Bye).
This word is a composite of two Sanskrit words, Nama, and Te. Te means you, and Nama means to bend, incline or bow. The meaning of these two words together is a sense of submitting oneself to another, with complete humility.
The gesture of namaste is a simple act made by bringing together both palms of the hands before the heart, and lightly bowing the head. In the simplest of terms it is accepted as a humble greeting straight from the heart and reciprocated accordingly.
To say namaste means saying the following:
“The God in me greets the God in you
The Spirit in me meets the same Spirit in you.”
In other words, it recognizes the equality of all, and pays honor to the sacredness of all and everyone, regardless of age, status or wealth.
How powerful would all our relationships and learnings be if we put this spirit behind every interaction that we have with each other….
