Q. Why do you have unusual names?

A.Our names are in Sanskrit, the language of the Vedic tradition spoken by Krishna , and are given by the spiritual master at the time of initiation, which is considered one's second birth. They are names of God, or of something or someone related to Him, so they're purifying to hear and remember. Each name includes the Sanskrit word for "servant" ( dasa for men, dasi for women), acknowledging that we are all part of one big family of God's servants.
