Namaste: Hindu greeting; acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another;
'I honour the Holy One that lives in you'

Shalom:  Hebrew greeting; 
as term and message, seems to encapsulate a reality and hope of wholeness for the individual, within societal relations, and for the whole world;  peace

After sitting with the meanings of these greetings for a while, 'hello' seems to me the shittiest and most inept greeting out. Devoid of the richness and meaning of it's Indian & Hebrew counterparts.

..nozzle..(favourite word)

May you greet those you meet on your path with blessings of peace in acknowledgement of their humanity. 

For therein you will find yours.
