    I don't want to slow down the forums with useless information, but I just wanted to make my new Sikh name official by anouncing it to the sangat. I have been considering a few different names, and have decided to go with Hardas Singh (sp?). I've read most Sikh parents announce their childs name at their gurdwara, but this is the closest thing to a gurdwara that I have and I'm the only Sikh in my family so I have to announce my own name :D.

    P.S. For those that do not know Satyadhi is just a username I created, my birth name is Matthias.

    Hardas Singh ji,


    Guru Fateh.

    Congratulations. You have been a Sikh for a long time within because it was an internal manifestation not any external imposition. So, this is one more milestone on this journey that you started sometime ago, which itself is the destination.

    Savour every step of it and if you need a mate for the part of your journey, just for the questions you may have, give us a howler.

    Tejwant Singh

    Hardas Singh ji,

    Do you want SPN to change your name? Or did we do that already?

    Dear Hardas Ji,

    It is a pleasure that you have adopted the Sikh name but according to Sikh Philosophy there is nothing in the name it is the actions which make you a Sikh by following the teachings contained in AGGS.
    Regards,

    Virinder

    Hardas Singh Ji
    Does this mean you have just recently taken Amrit? Or just changed your name? Forgive me for my ignorance.

    Hardas has a beautiful meaning to it.

    Har means God, and
    Das means Servant

    Hardas means God's servant.
    Now all you have to do is cultivate the name into action.
    Stay in humility and chardi kala.

    In Ardas, this is what we pray for:-

    Sikha da Munn Neeva, Matt uchi.

    Dear All,

    It is important to work on social skills, close interpersonal ties and social support to be happy by following thr Rx contained in AGGS. We need to learn to trust in and surrender to this impersonal process we tend to think of as “my life.” Humans were designed to be happy, creative and in harmony with the Mother Nature at all times for a persistent state of joy. An individual can succeed in attaining happiness with his own efforts if he learns to accept Akal Purkh’s Will.

    ਤੇਰਾ ਕੀਆ ਮੀਠਾ ਲਾਗੈ ॥ਹਰਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਪਦਾਰਥੁ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਮਾਂਗੈ ॥

    Ŧėrā kī¬ā mīṯẖā lāgai. Har nām paḏārath Nānak māʼngai.

    Your actions seem so sweet to me. Nanak begs for the treasure of the Naam, the Name of the Akal Purkh. -----Guru Arjan, Raag Asa, AGGS, Page, 394-4

    Happiness comes from spiritual wealth, and not from material wealth. Happiness comes from giving, not by getting, if we try hard to bring happiness to others, we cannot stop it from coming to us also.To get joy, we must give it; to keep joy, and we must scatter it.

    Virinder

    Thank you everyone for your support.
    I still have quite a few more years to wait until I can take amrit, so it's only a name change, but I feel having a Sikh name even though it is not my legal name yet helps to further identify myself with Sikhi. A Sikh name inspires me to act like a Sikh even when I don't feel like I am a Sikh due to my limited access to my faith.

    I didn't know it was possible to change names without making a new account. If it can be done I would appreciate it very much.
