It's good manners.

When i was in India one time people were kissing Patabhi Jois' (Astanga guru) feet... I didn't...i just gave him a hug ... i think he liked that better!

Bowing is more an Asian cultural greeting...like we shake hands. I like bowing to people with my hands in prayer position...nice to respect and honour all, not just swamis i think. In Thailand some monks bow to trees even...so sweet

I bow down to you

to mum

to my lover

to George Bush

to all the gurus

to myself...
