What is the meaning of folding the hands in greeting?
Answer by Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj: “When people fold their hands together to say hello it has a special meaning. Look at the direction in which the thumbs point. They point up! That symbolizes that they are pointing to God. It helps us to remember God. Look at how the other four fingers on each hand are held together.
That stands for all the people who are united as one family. It reminds us that we are all children of God and that we should love each other and be kind to each other. If we remember the meaning of folded hands, it will help us have peace on earth.”
