NAMASTE

I found this photo on Facebook Dalit Freedom Network USA



I have found the Indian people to be very open and friendly.  When we go for a walk we are always greeted by a head nod or Namaste greeting.  In Sanskrit the word is namah + te = namaste which means “I bow to you”.  Namaste also has a spiritual significance.  It recognizes the belief that the Divinity in me is the same in all of us.  Acknowledging this oneness with the meeting  palms, we honor the God Presence in the person we meet.  I am privileged to live in a country where spirituality is honored.  I was missing that when I lived in America.  Namaste.
