With a slight bow and hands pressed together at the heart, this peaceful greeting is a show of great respect. And, for those who do yoga, it’s what they’ll likely hear at the end of the class. Whether it’s for your parents, a teacher, yoga instructor, a friend, or a respected elder, a gift like this is the ultimate show of respect.
“Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”
When you stop to show others that you see them and show them respect, it just feels good. Offer this key in good faith and respect and those feelings will be reflected back.
