‘Namaste’ or ‘namaskar’ is the traditional Indian way of greeting each other. Namaste and its general variants ‘namaskar,’ ‘namaskaara’ or ‘namaskaram’, is one of the five forms of formal traditional greeting mentioned in the Vedas.This is normally refers to paying homage or showing respect to one another.
In Sanskrit, the word is namah + te = namaste which means “I bow to you” - my greetings, salutations to you.
It's is all in your answers. Like 'Inshal'lah,' Alhamdullu'lah and a few others, it is a most profound word. So I write here only to clarify. We sometimes forget to give them 'life.' The energy behind them can be missing. It should be a very powerful form of greeting, acknowledging that both your and your brother come come from the same spark of Light. Again, it pays homage to your true Self or God. Rather like Om Nama Shivaya or Hari Om Tat Sat.
Each has its own sweetness, according to one's various Path or leanings in life. Nice contribution, Emanate presence.
dghbrh: You have explained it nicely and correctly. I would like to add that it is natural way of greeting in Indian subcontinents without coming into physical contact like handshaking, hugging. While saying Namaste one bows slightly and folds the hands. Even without uttering the words namaste, bowing and folded hands also convey the same message of salutation i.e I salute you.
