It reads thus: S E R I O U S L Y D E L U D E D.

“Namaste” is a Hindi greeting; it’s one of the common Hindi words I learned from one of my Indian friends.

“As it is most commonly used, namaste is roughly equivalent to ‘greeting” or ‘good day,’ in English, implicitly with the connotation ‘to be well’. As opposed to shaking hands, kissing or embracing each other in other cultures, Namaste is a non-contact form of respectful greeting and can be used universally while meeting a person of different gender, age or social status.”

What David said. Common amongst the New Age/hippie crowd who want to be all coexist-y.

Yes it is a greeting. The more religious translation for namaste (na ma stay) is ‘the divine in me bows to the divine in you’. Hindus and New Age Hindu wanabees use it. It has become the greeting in many ‘spiritual’ circles. A truly pagan/monist greeting. In my pre-Christian life I used this greeting with fellow New Agers.



Namaste? Or NO-MASTER?

Seems to me that pride in self-delusional ways lends itself to the latter.

And as a bonus, given all the symbols on the second row, it’s almost certainly from Light of Truth Universal Shrine (lotus? get it??)in Buckingham, VA. The person is almost certainly a devotee/instructor of Integral Yoga…

Namaste is used in the prog community as an equivalent for “peace”.

Is this the New Agey equivalent of some westerner getting a kanji tattoo?

No Maoists?

This morning I saw a car with the coexist sticker on it, along with a bunch of hoo-hah about wiccanism, dancing in the rain and casting spells on those that tailgate. I tailgated her, pulled alongside and cast my own spell on her, followed by an animated laugh and finger-pointing. I’m calling out crazy with crazy!

literally it means “I am a retard” and you should point that out to those who have it on their vehicles.

Grrr…..above was supposed(!) to go further up. Agreed that this swarmy (swammy?) insipid bumper sticker probably made more sense before the water pipe and sugar cube wore off…

As near as I can tell, the second line contains the following symbols from left to right:

Goddess, Confucian, Horus, Taoism, Indigenous, Buddhism, Native, Shinto, WiccanPagan, Zoroastrians, Hindu, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Sikh, Jain, Baha’i, Atheism, Unitarian, Humanist
