Hindus, Sikhs...all speak of Sat Nam (or Naam)
Sat means True or Truth
Nam means name....(sometimes Word also according to some)
...so the True Name (of God).

What are they talking about though?
If you know the True Name or Holy Name of God that is unspeakable...
How does it change you? Is it the same Name we are not to take in vain?
If it was before time, before creation, before Man, in the beginning, how can we
find it? Where is it?
Why is it to be hallowed?

Throwing out thoughts for the very few here that it would interest...
Thanx...continuing the idea of having an Eastern Religion Section added.

One of the many things I love about the far eastern philosophy's God is that when he/she wants to enlighten and convey eternal compassion, he just has his people say it. He doesn't throw away all morality and murder innocent people to convey it.
