Why do Buddhists fold their palms?

Folding palms is a graceful posture and a dignified way of greeting, which originated in ancient India.  By bringing ten fingers together; we symbolically make all ten Dharma realms become one.
 
Reminded of the Buddha nature within every being, whether mundane or extraordinary.  We need to adapt a respectful outlook in practicing Buddha’s teaching and concurrently delivering others and ourselves.  Furthermore, folding palms helps us concentrate our minds while praying and allows our hearts to be opened to Buddha’s pure. enlightened energy.
