The concept of Namaste or Namaskar as envisaged & flashed by me on the f.b on October 25,2010.

Bishwanath Singh :
Namaste or Namaskar is a commonly spoken greeting or salutation in the Indian subcontinent. Namaskar is considered a slightly more formal version than Namaste but both express deep respect. to others. It is commonly used in India and Nepal by Hindus, Jains and Buddhists, and many continue to use this outside the Indian... subcontinent. In Indian and Nepal, these sacred words are usually spoken at the beginning of written or verbal communication to others whom we meet or think of in our daily thoughts. However, the same hands folded gesture is made usually wordlessly upon departure. In yoga, Namaste is said to mean the light in me honors as the light in you keep away from darkness to both the yoga teacher and yoga students when they communicate silently to each other with either Namaste or Namaskar with their folded hands. Actually speaking, Namaste means I bow to you as one means literally. The word is derived as one could find from Sanskrit ."Namas" means to bow, obeisance, reverential salutation, and respect and 'Te" means 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. Let us begin saluting each other with 'Namaste" or "Namaskar" with folded hands to win them over for all the times to come!
