Devotees are given new names at their initiation

‘I was working in investment banking and earning a decent salary but engaging in lots of drinking and drugging. I realised the path I was on was a dangerous one and decided to look at alternatives. After some years of practice and training, I took vows and received a spiritual name to help me remember Krishna. My birth name is James Edwards, but my spiritual name is Jai Nitai Dasa, which means “he who is the servant of the glorious lord Nityananda”.’
