My soul recognizes your soul. I honour the love, light, beauty, truth and kindness within you because it is also within me. In sharing these things there is no distance and no difference between us. We are the same. We are one. Namaste.
What is it that makes you want to bow down in awe, gratitude, or reverence? Is it beauty? Kindness? Generosity? When we draw our palms together in prayer and say ‘Namaste’ at the end of a yoga session, we are saying, “The divine in me bows to the divine in you.” We say ‘Namaste’ in reverence for what we have just done. We bow to the peace and ease yoga has offered us. We bow to the divine light wishing us that connects to the greater divine light of yoga.
