I love the idea of Namasté…
“The Divine in me recognizes and honors
the Divine in you”.
“There is a definition of God which has been repeated by many philosophers. God is an intelligible sphere—whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere. And the center is right where you’re sitting. And the other one is right where I’m sitting. And each of us is a manifestation of that mystery. That’s a nice mythological realization that sort of gives you a sense of who and what you are.” ~ Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth
Although not everyone views Namasté this way – as a deeply spiritual acknowledgment of the soul in one, by the soul in another – this is how I experience it.
Namasté represents a belief that:
According to one source I came across, a spiritual frequency is generated when two people greet each other with Namasté.
“When a person greets another with the feeling that “I am paying obeisance to the soul in the other”, a ring of spiritual emotion is created within him. Where there is spiritual emotion, there is Communion with God, and one is better able to access the sense of God’s presence. As a result, a ring of spiritual emotion is created around the person who is being greeted as well. This in turn attracts a flow of the Divine Principle or God’s power. Wherever there is Divine Principle, a flow of Bliss is attracted.” (Spiritual Research Foundation.org).
Well, I don’t know about that – but I can sense that it may, in fact, be true…
