A very welcoming door near Palpa, Nepal.
Namaste is Sanskrit for " I bow to that (divinity) inherent in you." It’s a very common greeting in the Indian subcontinent. One hand represents the higher, spiritual nature, while the other represents the worldly self. By combining the two, the person making the gesture is attempting to rise above his differences with others, and connect himself with the person to whom he bows. The bow is symbolic of love and respect.
