Namaste is a form of greeting or salutation, which, literally translated means ‘I bow to you.’ When spoken to another person, it is commonly accompanied by a slight bow made with hands pressed together, palms touching and fingers pointed upwards, in front of the chest (prayer position). The higher the hands, the more reverence and respect shown. The gesture can also be performed wordlessly and carry the same meaning. Yoga students generally repeat namaste at the end of a yoga session to express appreciation for sharing and growing together.
I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells
I honor the place in you which is of love, of truth of light, and of peace
When you are in that place in you and I am in that place in me
We are one.
