I plan to make this a semi-regular feature on UDC.
Once in a while a word enters my life, and I think it's just a great word. I want to share those with the world. Here comes one now...
This is a word I learned in the context of yoga. Namaste is a greeting/parting word (like aloha) which conveys respect for the person to whom it is spoken. It means "I bow to you." Most of the time it is accompanied by a slight bow of the head.
Click the word above to find out everything you ever wanted to know about namaste but were afraid to ask from Wikipedia.
