In India or other areas where Sanskrit is spoken, Namaste is a greeting in everyday life to simply address someone, equivalent to hello in the west.
As a yoga practitioner, it is a deeply profound gesture of respect toward another person. When you say Namaste, you connect to your divine soul, acknowledge, and bow to the divine in the person in front of you,”
“When we talk about the divine, we aren’t referring to something religious, but to our higher selves our inner light, to our spirit,”
As practitioner’s we constantly work to change our mindset on how we relate to other people, without judgement of their appearance or position within society, their viewpoints and perspectives always trying to see the good in them, their light, their beautiful soul. As we evolve in our practice, we expand this mindset not only to mankind but the all living entities in our universe.
