Spiritual Name- Krishan Singh

5:34 pm Co-Operators

This week marks an exciting path in my spiritual journey in this life time, for it is this week that I received my Kundalini Yoga Spiritual Name. To be given a spiritual name demonstrates a certain level of committment to the path, as well as recognition of some level of progression I belive.

The practice of spiritual name giving originated in the Americas by Yogi Bhajan. Yogi Bhajan passed this method down so that others in this coming Age of Aquarius could receive thier formal spiritual names.

Here is the note I received with the presentation of my name:


Spiritual name for Hershel Reese Miller: Krishan Singh.

Sat Nam, my dear brother in Divine,

Your request for a spiritual name has been gratefully received.

You have been blessed to live as Krishan Singh, which means the Lion of God who performs his duties as a devotional service in praise of God, and who walks with grace and courage throughout his life.

Krishan means one who performs his duties as a devotional service in praise of God. Singh means the Lion of God who walks with grace and courage throughout his life. Singh is a name that Yogi Bhajan gave to all men. He taught that every man has the potential to attain a true state of grace and courage, to be a great lion-warrior for God, and he encouraged each man to manifest that potential.

Receiving the name Krishan Singh means that you have the potential to act as your higher consciousness guides you, with the grace and courage of a Lion of God.


WOW, I most certainly am blessed.

There is so much deeper meaning within the definition of the name Krishan. As one who performs duties as a devotional service in the praise of God, there is a large amount of Bahkti Yoga involved. Bahkti means devotion, there is an entire chapter in the Bhagavad Gita on Bahkti Yoga. What is so interesting about this is that performing duties is a means of following ones dharma. Following ones dharma is important for the evolution of the soul. And since this service is done in the praise of God, one may interpret this to mean that the fruit of ones labor, or following the dharma in this case, is given up, sacrificed (which means made sacred) to the Lord. A proper practice of non-attatchment through Bahkti Yoga and while following ones dharma is truly a blessing.

To walk this life, with grace and courage from a state of higher consciousness is beyond words to describe.
Sat Nam
