What is a Spiritual Name?
In many ancient cultures and wisdom traditions Spiritual Names are understood as names to identify and affirm one’s Soul energy.
According to Kundalini Yoga teachings, a Spiritual Name is your mission in life, When Yogi Bhajan brought Kundalini Yoga to the West, he commonly gifted people spiritual names. Most of the names have Sanskrit origins and are based on the person’s numerology. The names were given to affirm one’s destiny, to elevate personal energy, and to guide the awakening of consciousness.
Some of the benefits for using an spiritual name is the vibration that helps to increase energy through Naad power (the essence of all sound) and its meaning Is the identity of the soul, is the guidance force that helps you to move forward to your real destiny and guide toward a deeper awareness of who you are.
I was blessed to live as Taran Priya Singh, the meaning is the Lion who is a beloved embodiment of God who carries others across the material ocean of the world to the shores of divine love.
Taran means swimmer or raft who takes one across. Priya is beloved, divine love. Singh is a name that all men receive (all women are called Kaur) - the Lion of God who walks with courage and strength throughout his life. Yogi Bhajan taught that every man has the potential to attain this divine state and encouraged all to manifest it.
Finally I choose Consciously merge with the vibration of the naad to come into harmony with my highest destiny as Taran Gong. “Love is the experience of selflessness within the self.”
