I make “namaste” my daily mantra for all of my relationships
GUEST COLUMN: REV. CRISS ITTERMANN, 2nd of two parts —The Sanskrit term “Namasté” (nah-mahs-tay) is loosely translated to mean “I honor the Spirit in you.” It is a word for the feeling of our Higher Self greeting or recognizing the Higher Self of another.
It is recognizing the divinity in others, the connection between all things, the reflection of our own sacredness when we see the sacredness of another. I suggest using Namasté when you mean it, when you feel the connection with another person and are sourced in your own sacredness.
During this celebration of sacred and unconditional love, remember to be sourced in your own sacred higher powers, and to recognize that higher power in others. Use this day as an opportunity to go out of your way to honestly say, “Namasté,” to everyone you greet.
