What’s in a name?

What’s in a name?

Numerology is the Science of Numbers. In life, I believe, nothing happens by chance. When we come into this world, it is with a unique set of vibrations and purposes. The name we are given at the time of our birth contains some of these vibrations as does our birth date.
Many celebrities have made their fame and fortune with an adopted name (I am including here names of Bollywood stars, if you wish, you may send list of other celebrities)–Ritu Chaudhry to Mahima Chaudhry, Rajeev Hari Om Bhatia to Akshay Kumar, Reema Lamba to Mallika Sherawat, Govind Arun Ahuja aka Govinda, Farhan Abraham aka John Abraham, Neeru Sawant aka Rakhi Sawant, Tabassum Hashmi Khan aka Tabu, Vijay Singh Deol aka Bobby Deol, Bhanurekha Ganesan aka Rekha, Vishal Veeru Devgan aka Ajay Devgan, Ravi Kapoor aka Jeetendra, ……..list is long, they all have changed not just their names but course of their life. 
Birth number is the single digit number we get by adding our birth date. Name number and Birth number when same or the difference is of 4 it brings ‘luck’ in life.
 Some examples:-
Barack Hussein Obama, the President of United States of America, Name number is 19 or single number--1. 19 is one of the most fortunate and favorable of all compound numbers. It is symbolized as the Sun, and is called the ‘Prince of Heaven’. His Sun Sign is Leo.
Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, the President of Russia, Name number is 16 and his Birth date number is also 16. As I have written above, whenever Name number and Birth number is the same number, it brings ‘luck’ in life.  16 Number is symbolized by the ancient Numerologists as ‘The Shattered Citadel’. It warns of strange fatality, though. His Sun Sign is Libra.

Dr Manmohan Singh, the Prime Minister of India, Name number is 5 and his Birth Date number is also 5. Whenever, Name number and Birth number is the same number, it brings ‘luck’ in life. His ‘luck’ of 14, the Name number, also warns of loss due to wrong advice from others, or overconfidence, as given by ancient numerologists. His Sun Sign is Libra.

David Cameron, the Prime Minister of United Kingdom, Name number is 10 or single number--1. His Birth date number is 5. The difference between the Name and Birth date number is 4 (5-1=4).

Xi Jinping, became the new President of China, on 14 March 2013, his Name number is 13. 13 is not an unlucky number, as many believe, 13 is associated with genius and of those breaking the orthodox. It is associated with power, which, if used for selfish purposes brings destruction upon itself and also warns of the unknown and the unexpected.

Life does have profound meaning and purpose, beyond earning name, money, success and fame, even if we are not sure what that is.  It is a popular belief among Hindus of 'reincarnation after death', and that death is a natural event so that the soul can move nearer the ultimate release from rebirth—salvation. In each of our lifetimes we have to learn and express our mission in life. It's almost like the universe wants us to win this time around. Essentially, through our karma, we are responsible for planting a seed that makes this world a better place and to make meaningful use of our life, whether we succeed or not is another matter, but let us at least make an effort. The concept of reincarnation, the journey of soul, preached as in Hindu scriptures, Bhagvad Gita and the Vedas, the idea generally put forth is simple; the baby is arriving to continue a journey. Since name is important so the process of naming is also probably important.
