Namaste


Pronounced: Na- ma- Stay

Namaste is a mudra and a mantra. A greeting that is designed to open the heart chakra, and blend the energies of two people as they meet, or leave.

By placing the hands in prayer position and slightly bowing the head, one offers a humble greeting of honor and respect.

The meaning is "the divine within me, honors the divine within you."

Because Eastern philosophy decribes us all as ONE, this greeting implies acknowlegment that there is no seperation between us, that we are all part of a single divine consiousness.

It also is a good way to avoid spreading germs, unlike the western handshake.
