Namaste = नमस्ते "(na-mas-tey)" or, you can also use Namaskar which is common as well in Nepal. Namaskar =नमस्कार "(na-mas-kar)" . So if you are seeing someone whom you haven't seen from a long time you may want to ask how they are. You can say [San-tsa-i hu-nun-ts'ha=सन्चै हुनुहुन्छ ? or[Aa-ra-mai hu-nun-ts'ha] आरामै हुनुहुन्छ ? Both are used to ask thethe query ""Are you fine?""

In Nepali you can say Good Morning or Good Afternoon or Good Night accordingly. But , sometimes it is that your accent be difficult for people to understand. Otherwise it is OK. Generally not used or may be used by some people, you can say (Suu-bha pra-bhat=शुभ प्रभात ) for morning ; (su-bha sa-n-dhyaa= शुभ सन्ध्या) for good afternoon and (suu bha RaatRee= शुभ रात्री) for good night.

(As you see Pra-bhat=(प्रभात) can be boys' name and Sa-n-dhyaa=सन्ध्या has become common name for girls')
