"Namaste" !!

By Chinga
"Namaste" is an ancient Sanskrit greeting still in everyday use in India and especially on the trail in the Nepal Himalaya. Translated roughly, it means "I bow to the God within you", or "The Spirit within me salutes the Spirit in you" - a knowing that we are all made from the same One Divine Consciousness. Used as a salutation, "Namaste" is usually spoken with a slight bow and hands pressed together, palms touching and fingers pointing upwards, thumbs close to the chest.
Thank you to Billy (Williamsloan) and Sue (Sue118) for the wonderful Awards for the frogs! "Namaste" to you both!
