What does Namaste mean?

Ever wonder what the heck does "namaste" mean?  

Is it like "haveaniceday"?  .....Yes!  But better.

3 translations:

"The very best part of me acknowledges and blesses the very best part of you."

"I greet that place within you, which is love, light and life.  And when I am in that place in me, and you are in that place in you, we are not separate."

"My soul honors your soul.  I honor the place in you where the entire Universe resides.  I honor the light, love, truth, beauty and peace within you, because it is also within me.  In sharing these things we are united, we are the same, we are one."

It is so much more than a greeting, a hello.  It speaks to our connectedness through our unique beautiful souls, that all shine out light, love and life no matter who we are or how different we are.    

So, next time you hear someone say namaste to you, accept their blessing and repeat it back to them to share yours.

Namaste
