Hands – Hindu Deities have lots of hands and hold lots of object and some fingers point up and some point down. Pointing up represents a blessing and a protector.
Atman / The Soul / Brahman / True Self / Eternal Soul / Universal Soul
Namaste / I BOW TO THEE – Palms placed together and raised to touch the 3rd Eye i.e. forehead. Both hands symbolise ONE MIND / THE SELF MEETING THE SELF. The right hand represents the HOLY or HIGHER SELF. The left hand represents the WORLDLY and LOWER SELF. Yin and Yang! We will be greeting each other this way so please practice.
