Yes, my local readers…I will be sprinkling yoga into my non-yoga class this morning. A little bit of yoga is better than no yoga at all!
In recent times, and more globally, the term “namaste” has come to be especially associated with yoga and spiritual meditation all over the world. In this context, it has been viewed in terms of a multitude of very complicated and poetic meanings which tie in with the spiritual origins of the word. Some examples:
- “I honor the Spirit in you which is also in me.”
- “I honor the place in you in which the entire Universe dwells, I honor the place in you which is of Love, of Integrity, of Wisdom and of Peace. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are One.
- “Your spirit and my spirit are ONE.
- “The Divinity within me perceives and adores the Divinity within you.”
- “All that is best and highest in me greets/salutes all that is best and highest in you.”
- “I bow to you. The light within me honors the light within you.”
Much more than a word, these are just some of the beautiful translations for Namaste. I hope you will fill your day with peace and yoga and find “upward bliss with downward dog.”
