Mano (mythology)

In Sami mythology, Mano, Manno, Aske, or Manna is a personification of the moon as a female deity.

The Sami worldview was animistic in nature, with shamanistic features, and in that worldview their divinities occupied important positions. Every force of nature was associated with a god or goddess, and sources of livelihood were believed to be safeguarded by beings in the spiritual world that could be persuaded to be more favourable.

Like other nature-deities, the goddess Mano was seen as unpredictable and dangerous. She was worshiped around the time of the new moon, especially around the Winter Solstice, and during that time it was taboo to make any kind of noise.

Christian missionaries and priests normally did not understand these Pagan concepts but regarded them as Satanic. The Sami were forcibly converted to Christianity and shamanistic practices forbidden.

Sami spirituality brought unearthliness—the spiritual world—to the Sami. The shaman was the intermediary between this world and the spiritual. Some Sami shamans had Noaidi drums, and at least one such drum with a Mano moon symbol has been discovered.

Mano (gesture)

Mano or Pagmamano is a gesture used in Filipino culture performed as a sign of respect to elders and as a way of accepting a blessing from the elder. Similar to hand-kissing, the person giving the greeting bows towards the offered hand of the elder and presses his or her forehead on the elder's hand. Usually performed with the right hand, the person showing respect may ask "Mano po" to the elder in order to ask permission to initiate the gesture. Typically someone may mano to his or her older relatives upon entry into their home or upon seeing them.

The word "mano" is Spanish for "hand" while the word "po" is often used in Filipino culture and language at the end of each sentence as a sign of respect when addressing someone older. Put together, "mano po" literally translates to "your hand please" as the greeting initiates the gesture of touching the back of the hand of an elder lightly on one’s forehead. An identical tradition is followed in neighbouring Indonesia and Malaysia called " salim" and "salam" respectively, suggesting that the Mano po tradition dates to precolonial times.
