Nama means bow, as means I, and te means you. 
Therefore, namaste literally means “bow me you” or “I bow to you.”

The gesture Namaste represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us that is located in the heart chakra. 
The gesture is an acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another.

If you truly think about it, we are all comprised of the same makeup as our vast Universe, atoms and molecules. We all share the same form. We, therefore, are all ONE held in the Divine. Although it can appear that are all so different, when broken down into our simplest form, we are all one in the same. Honoring the Divine Light within another is honoring the Divine Light within thyself. ~Namaste
