How do Buddhist monks greet each other?

There are a few different ways to greet someone in Buddhism. Probably the most universal way is to say “Namo Buddhaya” (“A bow to the Buddha”). Pure Land Buddhists might prefer to say “Namo ‘Mitabhaya” (“A bow to Amitabha”). Or you can say “hello” in your own language.
