Do You Know The Science Behind The Namaskara Mudra?

Share This:

Namaste is an ancient way of greeting in India which is practiced even today.  It is used on both occasions, on arrival and while leaving.Namaste is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Namaskar’, which literally means ‘I bow to you’. When one says ‘Namaste’ to another, he slightly bends forward, his hands pressed together with palms touching each other. This position is known as ‘Namaskara Mudra’.By doing the Namaskara mudra, a greater level of divine energy is absorbed by the body and the vacuum element (Akashtattva/Sunya) in the body is strengthened. The concentration of energy increases when you say ‘Namaste’ as your body connects to the second element that is the Earth principle(Pruthvitattva/Bhumi). As both of the elements of energy connect, other elements like Water (Jal), Fire (Agni) and Air (Pavan/Marut) also start connecting with the person.In this form of greeting you only bow down to a person while your hands form a ‘Namaskar Mudra’. This is done because you are bowing down to the spiritual energy of a person, rather than his physical aura. When you do physical contact, negative aura from other people can flow towards you, which does not happen if you say Namaste.
