With a Wai. The Wai is used to show respect. The hands being held in a prayer like manner, palms pressed together and a slight bow of the head. The closer the hands are held to the forehead and the lower the bow the more respect is being shown. The Wai is also a way of saying Thank you, or to apologize. The Wai is initiated by the lower in age or status and responded to by the higher. If there is a large social difference between statuses, the Wai may not be returned.
