I have people asking me all the time what is Namaskar and it gives me absolute pleasure to explain that it literally means ‘I salute the divinity in you.’
Eric Butterworth speaks about the word in his book, “Discover the Power Within You”. I especially like when he points out that we could use the word on yourselves, especially upon waking each day: Namaskar! I salute the divinity in myself. I am strong and able. I can do all that I need to do this day. My mind is alert, my body vital and healthy, and my way will be strewn with golden opportunities. No matter what this day will bring to me, there is that in me that is great enough to meet it, overcome it, and be blessed by it. Namaskar!” (Butterworth, 55).
So let’s greet each morning with Namaskar! Take this quote place where you will always see it, remind yourself of your divinity and in the same way, greet others with it too.
