Namaste



A small piece, 10" x 10". The canvas was painted and I was looking for one word to add, when I received an email from June Maffin, signed, “Namaste”. I knew that was my word.

Namaste: An ancient Sanskrit word meaning: “I honor the place within you where the entire Universe resides. I honor the place within you of Love and Light, of Truth and Peace. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, there is only ONE of us”.

Also a Nepalese greeting meaning,“I salute the divine qualities in you.”
