More about "Namaste'"
NAMA means “bow”
AS means “I”
TE means “you”.
Therefore, Namaste' literally means "bow me you" or "I bow to You." To perform Namaste, place your hands together at the heart chakra, close your eyes, and bow your head. It can also be done by placing the hands together in front of the third eye, bowing the head, and then bringing the hands down to the heart. This is an especially deep form of respect. Although in the West the word "Namaste'" is usually spoken in conjunction with the gesture, in India, it is understood that the gesture itself signifies Namaste', and therefore, it is unnecessary to say the word while bowing.
We bring the hands together at the heart chakra to increase the flow of Divine love. Bowing the head and closing the eyes helps the mind surrender to the Divine in the heart. One can do Namaste to oneself as a meditation technique to go deeper inside the heart chakra; when done with someone else, it is also a beautiful, albeit quick, meditation.
Namaste' allows two individuals to come together energetically to a place of connection and timelessness, free from the bonds of ego-connection. When done with deep feeling in the heart and with the mind surrendered, a deep union of spirits can blossom.
