namaste...As taught to me by my ex-landlord from India "Namaste" means "Hello." He taught me some phrases in Bengali and Hindi(Sanskrit is not spoken much anymore, Bengali and Hindi is.). It has beautiful, heartfelt meaning behind the greeting, you touch your forehead and join your hands together at your heart, it represents giving your mind, heart and soul into your greeting.
"I do not think it is necessary to believe that the same God who has given us our senses, reason, and intelligence wished us to abandon their use, giving us by some other means the information that we could gain through them." -Galileo Galilei.
