~Niranjan~

Niranjan is a Sanskrit word that has multiple meanings and uses. It means “pure,” “spotless,” “simple,” “truthful,” “great” and “without bad attributes.” It is also a name for the Supreme Being. The word is derived from the Sanskrit root words, nir, meaning “no” or “without”; and anjan, meaning “impurity,” “fear” or “lack of knowledge.” Anjan also refers to the sense of self and possession, so niranjan can mean a non-attachment to possessions and self.

As it refers to the Supreme Being, Niranjan is an incarnation or another name for Krishna and for Shiva.
