Tibetan Buddhist monks greet strangers who come to their temples with the question: Welcome friend, from what noble spiritual tradition do you come? Throughout Asian countries like India and Nepal, the salutation on everyone's lips is "Namastae," accompanied by a bow with hands together as in prayer. Namastae means "I salute the God within you."
To Practice This Thought:
Bow — outwardly or inwardly — to everyone you meet.
