Our Daughter’s Name – Charanjeet Kaur

Charanjeet KaurLast night I had written up a long blog post (Day 3) but all of a sudden my LCD screen went totally white. Apparently something is wrong with it and am sending it in for repairs, so I lost that blog post. Oh well. I guess it wasn’t meant to be said.

Thank you all for the overwhelming show of support and good wishes on the birth of our daughter Charanjeet Kaur. I have really enjoyed the last 4 days bonding with her and getting to know her. She sleeps quite a bit but the past few nights has been up in the night wanting to nurse so we (Arjan and Me) haven’t gotten too much sleep. At least I am not working so can take naps during the day. It is so cool when she is awake and just looking around with this deep gaze (like in the picture). She glances around as if she is seeing angels or something all around the place. Occationally she looks directly at me or Arjan and we connect. I’m a happy papa…what can I say :) Here is a bit of meaning behind the name Charanjet Kaur (or at least how I interpret it).

I’m sure that many of you will be there watching with me as she grows up, as some of you have seen Narayan grow and change in the past few years.

Charanjeet Kaur, the Princess/Lioness of God who gains victory over all obstacles in serving at the Lotus feet of God, who brings many others to serve at God’s Lotus Feet, and who walks with grace and power throughout her life.

Charan means: the Lotus feet of God. Jeet means: Victory, the power to overcome any obstacle. Kaur means: the Princess/Lioness of God who walks with grace and power throughout her life. Every woman has the potential to attain a great state of grace and power and every woman should be encouraged to manifest that potential.
