First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, and then you win.

Namasté, namaste, namasteé(नमस्ते) or namaskar (नमस्कार) is derived from Sanskrit and is a combination of two words, “Namaḥ” and “te”. Namaḥ means ‘bow’, ‘obeisance’, ‘reverential salutation’ or ‘adoration’ and te means ‘to you’ (dative case of ‘you’). Therefore, Namaste literally means “salutations to you”. ‘Namaskar’ is derived from Sanskrit and is a combination of the two words, “Namaḥ” and “kaar”. As noted above, “Namaḥ” is a salutation. “Kaar” means ‘form’ or ‘shape’ and refers to the phenomenon that the other entity (person) presents. Thus, the older salutation essentially means “I salute [your] form”, which implies an understanding that all beings in this existence are part of the surface phenomenology of Maya and that beyond the surface, so to say, all beings are part of Brahman, or the One ultimate essence that underlies, and is, all. In the same light, ‘Namah’ originates from a benevolent unselfishness or admission (“salutation”) of unity in One essence, and, therefore, ‘Namaste’ can also be interpreted (roughly) as a way of saying “Not-myself to you” (a benevolent expression of both respect and impersonality). Another variation “Not for me,.. but for thee” gives the sense of doing ‘in service’ or ‘in honor’ of the person spoken to, removing any personal agenda of the speaker.
