Greeting / Namaste

 

Placing hands against eachother with elbows in a straight line, we greet by saying Namaste.

We do this when seeing a fellow Buddhakado-dai, when stepping on the mat, when a Guru steps in the room and when finalizing the lesson.

 

Start lesson:

- Greeting to Buddha.

- Greeting to all Gurus that have a relation with the specific kelne thau (dojo/club), present or not.

 

End lesson:

- Again greeting to Buddha.

- Greeting to present Gurus.

 

And finalize by shaking hands (double > respectfully), saying dhanyabad (thank you > for the training) to all.
