Namaste means "I give reverence to the spirit in you which is also in me". It is in this spirit that we welcome you into the store. And despite the difficult economy, you have welcomed us so warmly, and your kindness has made our first four years such a success, that we are brimming with gratitude. We would also like to thank all of the Authors, Vendors, Distributors, and Publishers who helped to make our first four years a success.
