Namo Gange Namaskar!
Today we are going to explain that why each teacher starts YOGA with ‘NAMASTE’ gesture? Everyone knows very well that the gesture Namaste represents the deep belief that there exists Divine Spark in each person’s heart chakra. That’s why this gesture shows an acknowledgement of the spirit of one person by the spirit of another person.
How to perform the Namaste Gesture
To perform the Namaste gesture, we join the hands together at the heart chakra (Anahata Chakra), close the eyes and slouch down the head. The gesture also be completed by keeping the hands together in front of the third eye, slouching down the head and then bringing the hands down to the heart. This form is known as deep form of this gesture especially.
To increase the flow of Divine love, we bring the hands together at the center of Anahata Chakra. Head slouching and closing the eyes helps in the mind abandonment to the Divine in the heart. Any person can do NAMASTE as a meditation technique to go deeper inside the heart chakra.
In the relation of a teacher and student, Namaste allows two individuals to come together enthusiastically to a place of connection without any ego. If we do it with deep feeling in the heart and with the mind abandonment, a deep union of spirits can blossom.
Namaste into the teaching profession
The teacher starts gesture Namaste as symbol of thankfulness and respect toward his/her students and his/her own teachers and in return invites to connect with their genealogy to allow the truth flow - the truth that we are all one when we live from the heart.
