NAMASTE- Symbol of Indian Culture, Efeccts and Benefits
  • The gesture of Namaste is essentially Indian. It is the symbol of greeting from ancient times.
  • The literal meaning of Namaste is Namah i.e. to Bow to you – I bow to you.
  • Namaste represents the belief that there is a divine spark within each of us that is located at the heart (Anahata Chakra).
This situation is the essence of our culture of seeing the divine within all creation. Hence this gesture is offered equally in temples to deities, teachers, family, friends and strangers and even before sacred rivers and trees.

Formation: To perform ‘Namaste’ we join the hands together and place the heart Chakra, close the eyes and bend the head.

Namaste can also be done by placing the hands together in front of the third eye between the brows, bowing the head.

Namaste needs no occasion. It can be performed anywhere anytime and at any place. The gestures are used prominently in worship.

Effect: Namaste is a Mudra that is rich in flavor, meaning, and substance. The Electromagnetic power flowing from one hand to other is felt strongly. One feels strong in body and mind.

As we bring our hands together at the center, we are connecting the right hand with the left hemisphere of our brain and vice versa. This is the yogic process of unification. The Namaste brings the right and the left side, masculine and feminine, logic and intuition, strength and tenderness together as a whole.

Benefits:
  1. This Mudra frees us from the bonds of ego and makes us humble and pleasant.
  2. We feel strong in body and mind as this Mudra removes fear and headaches, even flexibility in the fingers is improved.
  3. Namaste is uplifting. It gives the sense of great fullness and waiting to receive blessings of good things to come.
