Yes Many names,

The guru tells us in jaap sahib,

"tav sarab naam kathe kavan, Karam naam barnat sumat"**

"None can truly express or give discourse on your names, it is by your actions that you are named the wise know this."

Similaraly the same is found in EXODUS 3:6 of the Torah/Bible

The Holy One, Blessed Be He, said to those, you want to know my name? I am called according to my actions. When I judge the creatures I am Elohim, and when I have mercy with My world, I am named YHVH Ex 3:6

The guru and God have given us


the force of extacy that drives one from the darkness into the light

this name waheguru is also a culmination of the different names for god through the 4 ages

*W*ashadev ( the one who pervades everywhere)

*H*ari ( the one who blossoms within)

*G*obind (the lord of all creation)

*R*aam (the giver of bliss)

but when we refer to god our names are very practical.

Akal = the timless one / beyound death and deteriation

Waheguru = the ofrce of extacy which drives us out of the darkness into the light

Akal Purakh = the timless being

Satnam = Whoes name is truth

Kartar= the creator

Har/ hari = the one who blossoms within the heart

May the lord bless you on your life journey
