What is correct method & science of doing Namaskar to God?

 

 

What is the correct method of doing Namaskār?

A. While paying obeisance to God, bring the palms together.
1. The fingers should be held loose (not straight and rigid) while joining the palms.
2. The fingers should be kept close to each other without leaving any space between them.
3. The fingers should be kept away from the thumbs.
4. The inner portion of the palms should not touch each other and there should be some space between them.

Note: The stage of awakening of spiritual emotion (bhāv) is important to the seeker at the primary level. Hence, for awakening spiritual emotion (bhav), he should keep space in between the palms, whereas a seeker who is at the advanced level should refrain from leaving such space in between the palms to awaken the unexpressed spiritual emotion (bhav).

B. After joining the hands one should bow and bring the head forward.

C. While tilting the head forward, one should place the thumbs at the mid-brow region, i.e. at the point between the eyebrows and try to concentrate on the feet of the Deity.

D. After that, instead of bringing the folded hands down immediately, they should be placed on the mid-chest region for a minute in such a way that the wrists touch the chest; then only should the hands be brought down.
