Question and Answer

Q. What is Namaste?

A.  This word is made up of two words: ‘Namah’ means bow, ‘te’ means to you. In a very basic sense it means I bow to you, as a sign of respect from one human being to another. In the Hindu spiritual sense it means I bow to the divinity within you because I see divinity in everything. Namaste is recognized universally as a Hindu form of greetings.
