Namaste - The ancient Sanskrit blessing defined for you
The life in me sees and honours the life in you
Namaste is the beautiful spark in one person recognizing the beautiful spark in another
This is an especially deep expression of respect
Namaste recognizes the duality that has ever existed in this world and suggests an effort on our part to bring these two forces together
Ultimately leading to a higher unity and non-dual state of Oneness
In other words, it recognizes the equality of all, and pays honour to the sacredness of all.
The whole action of Namaste unfolds itself at three levels; mental, physical, and verbal.
I honour the place in you where Spirit lives. The Spirit in me meets the same Spirit in you.
I greet that place where you and I, WE ARE ONE.
I honour the place in you which is of LOVE; I receive the free spirit in you.
I salute the place in you which is Truth, may the life within you be strong.
I receive the place in you which is of Light
I recognize the place in you which is of Peace, within each of us is a place where peace dwells
I recognize that we are all equal. I acknowledge that everyone is valuable in their own way and capable of expanding my horizons.
When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, then we are ONE.
We are able to recognize the goodness of others
Instead of clinging to what separates us, Practicing Namaste enables us to feel less alone in the world. We begin to understand that we must treat all people for what they are, family.
May all beings find and hold happiness.
May they all be free from suffering and sickness.
May we all look in the mirror see all others reflecting back.
May we be all with one, living in oneness, one family, one heart, a glowing heart of the brightest light of compassion. NAMASTE
