• Sangeetashraddha Cheffings (temple host) posted an update 2 months, 1 week ago

    I have been contemplating my new name. Sangeetashraddha means ‘music of faith’. I realised that in this name, music comes out of faith, rather than faith coming out of music, so the ‘shraddha’ part of the name is like the seed of the whole name. I then thought about my Christian name (Christian in terms of the name given me by my Christian parents). I realised that St Andrew had such great faith that he followed his teacher to being executed. So, I realised that the ordination ceremony was a re-affirmation of a name I have carried through my life – faith, shraddha.
