Oaxaca, México, 2017
Like the two palms in front of one´s heart, a greeting in some traditions in India, the raw earth Menhir faces the iron canoe as a gesture of gratitude while using the gifts of nature to shape shelters and all kind of human creations with moderation and wisdom.
“The gesture Namaste represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us that is located in the heart chakra. The gesture is an acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another.
To perform Namaste, we place the hands together at the heart charka, close the eyes, and bow the head. It can also be done by placing the hands together in front of the third eye, bowing the head, and then bringing the hands down to the heart. This is an especially deep form of respect.
Anjali mudra is an age-old means of helping human beings to remember the gift of life and to use it wisely.”
