Amma always said:

Every time whoever you meet
Remember to always greet
With a smiling face 
And folded hands

I would argue:

All I need to do is say “Hi”
So doing all those gestures
Why?

She would lovingly explain:

Beware
Rather Be Aware
Every time you say
Namaste
 
Working as an aide-memoire
It awakens you from stupor
to experience and realize
that in every organism alive
The Witness reclines
in the temple divine

Conveying gratitude
With a pleasing attitude
You merely don’t greet
Every big and small
Essentially you bow 
To the Witness
That pervades all.

~*~

When will I learn?

Comments on this Poem

Comment Namaste to thee
In you and me
In all forms around
Within and without
Veiled is He
Namaste to thee.

Comment Nicely conveyed, sir.
'Be aware' is better than 'beware'.
Continues the idea earlier communicated.regards

Comment So True. We have also taught our daughter to bow down with folded hands and greet all with NAMASTE.
