Namaste in Yoga

     Namaste in Yoga ( Namaskar or Namskaram)  is a salutation mostly used in Indian subcontinent during visit with friends, relatives and elders. When saying this salutation with the person you meet, it is commonly accompanied by a slight bow made with hands joined together, palms touching and fingers pointed upwards, in front of the chest. This gesture is known as abhinandan or anjali mudra in yogic term and is done with the same speech or speechlessly.
    As it is most commonly used, namaste is exactly equivalent to "greetings" in English, with the well wish of to be well, to remain well as long as we live. As against shaking hands, kissing or embracing each other in other cultures, Namaste is a non-contact form of respectful greeting and nowadays used in many countries while meeting a person of different gender, age or social status.   Namaste yoga meaning:
The gesture Namaste in Yoga indicates the belief that there is a Divine spot within each of us that is situated in the heart chakra. This gesture has the meaning that the spirit in me respects the intimacy of your spirit.  According to our Eastern Guru of Yoga, Namaste literally means "I bow to you."
To do Namaste, we place the hands together at the heart charka, close the eyes, and bow the head. It can also be performed by joining our hands in front of our forehead, bowing the head, and then bringing the hands down to the heart. This specialized act of Namaste express deep respect to other. Bringing the hands together at the heart chakra to increase the flow of Divine love. Bowing the head and shutting our eyes helps the mind surrender to the Supernatural being residing in your heart. We can do Namaste to our-self as a meditation technique to activate our heart chakra.
