Namaste: Honoring the Light in All Beings

Apr 28, 2021

The ritual of Namaste – bowing to the sacred in ourselves and others – helps us live from the loving awareness that is our true nature. This talk looks at how we suffer because we forget this basic goodness, and explores the pathways of remembering that carry us home.

“It was as if I suddenly saw the secret beauty of their hearts – the depth of their hearts where neither sin nor knowledge could reach the core of reality – the person that each one is in the eyes of the divine. If only they could see themselves as they really are. If only we could see each other that way all the time. There would be no more need for war, for hatred, for greed, for cruelty. I suppose the big problem would be that we would fall down and worship each other.”
