Term: Namaste

DEFINITION:

A traditional Indian salutation used similar to the Hebrew Shalom or Hawaiian Aloha. There is no universally accepted translation, however it generally means "that which is of the gods in me recognizes and honors that which is of the gods in you."

It is often accompanied by the gesture known as the Anjali Mudra. This gesture is made by bringing together both palms with the fingertips of the both hands pointing up while giving a slight bow.
