Namaste Significance

Namaste has a lot of significance for the people of India. Well, Namaste is the folding of palms close to your heart, as a way of greeting the other person. It is usually accompanied by slight bowing of head. The hands that are held in unison represent the meeting of spirits. It is often said that our right hand signifies our higher level divine nature and the left hand represents the lower level worldly nature.

The gesture of greeting is called Namaste and the act of greeting is referred to as Namaskaram or simply Namaskar. Saying Namaste has become a veritable symbol of our Bhartiya Sanskriti. It represents the hospitality and deeper veneration of Indians. It is usually the younger ones, who wish Namaste to their elders. Elders reply back in a similar manner.
