  1. NAMASTE – In India this posture is the form of greeting a fellow human followed by the utterance of the word Namaste. It means ” your soul and my soul are one”. ALSO -Generally people pray in front of their diety in this posture. The Sanskrit equivalent for Namaste is Pranaam. NAMASTE DILLY.

  2. Absolutely true Dilly, but I was writing about the posture in Indian context as a layman from India would understand & interpret it. Buddhism travelled from India to Central, South & South-East Asia and with its strong emphasis on non-violence, the early Buddhist monks developed martial arts which according to them was a technique of self defence without the use of any sort of weapon.
