an ancient Sanskrit greeting still in everyday use in India and especially on the trail in the Nepal Himalaya. Translated roughly, it means "I bow to the God within you", or "The Spirit within me salutes the Spirit in you" - a knowing that we are all made from the same One Divine Consciousness.
The more formal greeting Sanskrit Namascar pronounced NAH-mah-scar is also used in India, though less frequently in Nepal. The Hindi "Jai Bhagwan" is also in common use, and carries the same meaning.

Namaste was originally intended as a respectful greeting to God, the Great Guru within. It is often used today as a greeting to other people - either friends or strangers.

Namaskar (and its related street term, skar) is always used in the second sense.
"Namaste, my beloved Guru..."
