"Namaskāra" (pronounced "na-mas-kara") is a Sanskrit word meaning "obeisance" or "paying respect". It is a traditional greeting in India and is also used in Buddhist countries such as Sri Lanka, Myanmar and Thailand, accompanied by an anjali mudra - palms pressed together in front of the chest. It is used as a way of showing respect and gratitude to teachers, elders and spiritual people. It can also be used as a general greeting, similar to "hello" or "hi" in English.
