A few of the swamis are taking new names. Eventually, all of the monastics will have the word "natha" in their name, denoting we are all of the Nandinatha Sampradaya. This is a similar tradition as in other orders, where "ananda" or "puri" is appended to a swami's name.
We can continue to use the simple titles: swami, acharya and paramacharya when speaking with the swamis. The full, formal names are in this style: Paramacharya Sadasivanatha Palaniswami, etc. Here are the four new names to get used to:
Paramacharya Sadasivanathaswami (formerly Palaniswami)
Paramacharya Sivanathaswami (formerly Ceyonswami)
Acharya Kumaranathaswami (formerly Kumarswami, notice the added "a"
); Acharya Arumuganathaswami (formerly Arumugaswami)
"Temples with multiple deities can be confusing, especially for today's Hindu youth. For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination. For spiritual advancement it is best to focus on one deity and get to the vibration that deity. When we hear teachings from various Hindus, it is important to understand and identify which denomination they are speaking from. This will avert confusion when that teaching gets contradicted in a different context where someone is talking about the same subject but from a different philosophical background."
