When Hindus meet each other, they greet each other by saying ‘Namaste’ or ‘Namaskar.’ They put together the palms of both hands while saying so.
Some religious words like Ram Ram, Jai Mata Di, Jai Ram Ji Ki, Om Namah Shivay are also used sometimes. Before the start of any good work and social and religious ceremonies, Hindus worship Lord Ganesha and chant mantra: वक्रतुंड महाकाय सुर्यकोटि समप्रभ: निर्विघ्नं कुरु में देव सर्वकार्येषु सर्वदा: Vakratund Mahakay Suryakoti Samaprabhah Nirvighnam Kurumedevah Sarvakaryeshu Sarvadah 3.
