One of my favourite salutations is Namaste.
Namaste is both a greeting and a gesture — the right and left palms joined together in prayer position, held at heart’s centre, with the fingers pointing towards the head.
The meaning is something like this:
‘I bow to the spirit
that is in you,
from the spirit
that is in me’.
“I honor the place
in you in which
the entire Universe dwells.
I honor the place in you which is of Love,
of Integrity, of Wisdom and of Peace.
When you are in that place in you,
and I am in that place in me,
we are One.”
