" itadakimasu" 
 and "Gochisousama"
In Japan, we put our hands together and say "itadakimasu" before a meal and "gochisousama" after a meal. 
In "Gassyo"( joining hands in prayer), right hand stands for God's hand and left hand stands for my own hand.
Putting right and left hands together indicates a union with the God within us.
It also means harmonious mind with people and the environment.
