According to Hindu religion, when one join its hands and say ‘Namaste’ or ‘Namaskar’ to greet anyone. It is considered as a mark of respect for that person.
When we join hands together, it means we are pressing acupressure points especially for the eyes, ears and mind and activate them. This helps us to remember that person for a long time.
Namaste is a compound word in Sanskrit. It is made up of two words ‘Namah’ + ‘te’ where namah means ‘bow to you’ and ‘te’ is the short form of ‘tubyam’ that means ‘you’.
Thus namaste thus it means ‘The soul in me bow to give respect to the soul in you as both are the aspect of one supreme soul.’
