A Mohiniattam dancer making a Namaste gesture


Namaste (/ˈnɑːməst/, nah-məs-tay; Hindi/Nepali: नमस्ते Hindi: [nəməsteː]), nah-məs-tay), sometimes spoken as Namaskar, Namaskaram or Vanakkam, is a respectful form of greeting inHindu custom, found on the Indian subcontinent mainly in India and Nepal and among the Indian diaspora. It is used both for salutation and valediction.[1][2]Namaste is usually spoken with a slight bow and hands pressed together, palms touching and fingers pointing upwards, thumbs close to the chest. This gesture is called Añjali Mudrā or Pranamasana.[3] In Hinduism it means “I bow to the divine in you”.[4][5] The greeting may also be spoken without the gesture or the gesture performed wordlessly, carrying the same meaning.
