The Principles of Naming

INTRODUCTION Name is the result of the first tangible result which the eternal soul attains with human birth in the world of Maya. This gives us the identity and individuality. Whenever anyone calls with that name, it fills up his mind with some very unique perceptions regarding our selves. The perceptions are very subjective and very unique and the persons near us interact with us in a very specific way. This is a common occurrence that, a person might have more than one name in the home, among friends and in his work circle. This is seen that the way the people or the world behaves considerably change with the name. Now we wouldn’t have bothered much if the name would only defined our unique images in the mind of the person, interacting with us, however, it is not limited to that. The results we accrue in the society is the results of all those numerous interactions which we have within it. Thus it is very important to know our own name is in store for us. This knowledge shall also empower us to change our name if necessary, to make the vibrations of the name positive in our life. We can keep the name of a new born not on an arbitrary basis but on well grounded principle of Jyotish, so that their life can be fruitful and prosperous. Even if you don’t believe in this, which seems superstitious, why not give a honest try and see whether or not it works. There is nothing you lose.

AKSHARAS AND NAKSHATRAS The entire gamut of Aksharas is divided into the 28 Nakshatras or asterisms. Each Nakshatra is of four padas, each pada is assigned to an akshara. The duration of each pada is 3d 20m, however this is a bit different in the case of Uttarashadha and Sravana. The duration of Uttarashadha is divided into four parts and the first three padas are assigned to Uttarashadha, which makes the duration of Uttarashadha to be 10deg with each pada to be 2d 30m. The remaining one pada of Uttarashadha is assigned to Abhijit, the intercalary nakshatra. Similarly beginning 1/15th part of Sravana is given to Abhijit, making its total length to be 253.33 min, i.e., 4d 13m 20s. The remaining 14/15th part of Sravana is assigned to the four padas of Sravana, making the total duration of Sravana to be 12d 26m 40s. Figure 1: Nakshatra and Aksharas


This shall help us know. Thus this is very important to understand. Each rasi consists of 9 nakshatra padas and hence nine aksharas are assigned to each rasi. Makara being an exception. what kind of influences we like to draw to the native when his name is called by others. it has a very peculiar and specific influence on us at various levels. because of assignment of four extra pada of intercalary nakshatra Abhijit. . The following table shows the meaning of each of the aksharas of the divine language. Thus when a particular akshara is picked for the native’s name. it should be based on a well understood principle and not on a random manner. mental and spiritual. what each of the sound signified by the various aksharas of Sanskrit signify.
