Dear Orkney News,
I’ve just had an idea – people are wondering how to greet each other in a friendly/respectful way, if handshakes, hugs and even elbow-bumps are not a good idea – how about adopting the Hindu ‘namaste’ gesture, in which the palms are pressed together at the chest or head accompanied by a slight bow?
Namaste is an acknowledgement of our common humanity and connection with life – but doesn’t involve physical contact! https://quantumstones.com/meaning-namaste-many-translations-one-universal-intention/
Yours, Bernie Bell, Orkney
