High significance of word “Namaskar ” used very frequently !!!
“Namaskar” being a Sanskrit word consists of three words by Rule Sandichead of Sanskrit Grammar and it is = Namah + tai + Aakara = I Bow + to your + Image.
Here the word “Image” represents God, as we find the Images of God at all places Of worship like Temples, Churches, Gurdwaras, Kashmiri ThakurKuth/God’s room & so on; in the form of Idols, Statues, Sculptures, Photographs & so on.Also it is said that All Human Beings are in the Image of God which means that each one of us has the Goodness/Virtues of God present in us, such as Love, Compassion, Sincerity, Honesty, Forgiveness, sympathy, Forbearance & so on & on.
As such we use Namaskar by word of mouth &/or by Folded Hands, when we meet each other person & when after meeting we depart. All that exercise is a cool reminder to each other person of the virtues of God present in each one of us. Thus the word Namaskar has a very high significance and needs awareness.
