The word itself means “With all the depths and charms of my mind and all the love and cordiality of my heart, the divinity within me greets the divinity within you.” This meaning is the ideation kept in mind when giving the greeting.

 The greeting is usually given alongside an accompanying action- holding the palms of the hand flat together and touching the thumbs first to the “third eye” area between the eyebrows and then touching the thumbs to the heart.

 The word itself is related to Namaste, and often used in the same way. But while Namaste was originally intended as a respectful greeting to God alone, Namaskar has always been used as a greeting to all people- whether friend or stranger.
