 NAMASTE - is the Indian gesture of the Host welcoming a Guest. He unites the palms and gently bows and Receives/Includes the Guest without invasion/intrusion. The Sanskrit word NAMASTE can be explained as the union of NA(not) MAMAHA(me) TE(you). The Host is Humble enough to elevate the Guest. Humility is the BASIS of Service and Hospitality. The Guest is defined as A-TITHEE i.e Un - Appointed.Anything/ANYBODY can visit us ANY MOMENTwithout an Appointment. So, Everything and Everybody IS A GUEST. They also say ' The GUEST is GOD.( Atithee Devo Bhava ). So, ALL is part of Creation- with all the Opposites. The practice of NAMASTE - even by yourself -whenever and wherever begins to help us ' ACCEPT' the Existence AS IT IS-HERE AND NOW ! One can experience it by sitting with our eyes closed and the hands in a NAMASTE  and watch the Breath.Every Exhalation is GIVING and every Inhalation is ACCEPTANCE. In your mind, say                                                                                 EXHALATION -- THANK YOU                                                                                            &  See full.

To Know Without Needing To Understand, by Gangaji

Yes, indeed ! Has not a wise man said ' the more you try to understand, the less you know ' ?

True knowing can happen only when the Logical Thinking (of the Left Brain) and the Illogical ( Dil-logical,as the actor Saif Ali Khan said in an Ad )Feeling/Intuition(of the Right Brain) come together in a Namaste ! The Head and the Heart must unite in a Namaste-for balanced Actions.A balance 'tween Gyan and Bhakti alone will ensure balanced Karma !

What courage ! hats off ! May his tribe flourish !

Forgiveness and Gratitude lead you towards ' service with humility ' .Only then does surrender to and the acceptance of the Oneness of LIFE happen !

Sadhguru explains it lucidly thus

SHIVA actually means ' that which is NOT ' What are they ?

Silence - from which sound emerges and vanishes into

Darkness - from which light emerges and vanishes into

Space - from which matter emerges and vanishesinto

These three ' nothings ' are present ' everywhere - infinitely '- OMNOPRESENT - GOD !

NAMASTE ! - is the essence of Indian Horpitality. It means NA -not  + MAMAHA - me + TE- you. i.e the Host is saying ' not me, but you ' to the Guest ! Only by  elevating the guest and by humbling himself,can the Host truly extend a warm hand of hospitality and thus truly ' serve ' the guest. Service alone is the way ! When Man decides to be a ' humble servant ' of Nature, there is ' abundance -  plenty for all ! 

BUT, MAN, the most intelligent ( ? ? ) creation, decided to ' conquer, exploit, Master Nature, it led to greed, competition and scarcity - poverty amidst plenty !

We blatantly violated the ( inviolable) Laws of Nature of

- Give and Recieve. Instead he TOOK first and then did not GIVE with 'awareness' !

- Cause and Effect -as you Sow ,so you Reap !

So, he 'linearised ' the Cyclic processes of( water, food/biomass etc...) and created the problems of pollution - garbage and sewage.

RE- CYCLING , by Returning the WASTES to the Source will alone ensure ' Sustainable Living' for all on this Earth !

Why do we want to ' screw up ' another planet ?
