“Namaste” What does it mean?
The gesture (a slight bow and hands pressed together, palms touching and fingers pointing upwards, thumbs close to the chest) and word is used mainly throughout India, Nepal, and parts of Asia. We use it in Yoga class.
It is a respectful way of greeting hello and saying goodbye.
It can also translate to:
“I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides.”
“I honor the place in you of light, of love, of truth, and peace.”
(Yeah, that one word means a whole lot, but it’s a great saying none the less.)
Namaste my friend. Namaste
