    Ordination

    Hello Dear Ones,

    This past Sunday, 20June 2010, I took Tokudo at the Lotus Zen Temple and became a monastic of the Order of the Lotus Blossom, in the Chan lineage of Hui Neng. It was a short and dignified ceremony and I'm sorry that photos were not permitted during the ceremony. I do hjave a photo taken directly afterwards, but I cannot load it as an attachment do to that it "too big". If I can get some help with reducung it, I will post it for you.

    I was also given an added name ( boy if I were to list all the names I've received over the years due to the various stages of taking vows, it would read like some eccentric Balkan nobleman :lol: . Anyway the name is:

    Yin Che Seishin

    Yin Che means "Complete Seal". Jundo is that the same in Japanese?

    So here I am "re-monked" and very happy about it. I really do feel that this has "completely sealed" me; uniting Western and Eastern monasticism in at least one more person. I can now breathe with both lungs!!

    Gassho,

    Yin Che Seishin

    Yin Che Seishin,

    Congratulations! What a beautiful process to celebrate! I would love to see the pic, but unfortunately I'm the one usually asking for help in these matters.

    Wonderful!

    Many bows to you,

    Congratulations Yin Che Seishin, from the ten directions.

    If you send me the Chinese Characters, I will see if they are written the same in Japanese, and the pronunciation there.

    But a name is just a name ... as is "east, west, north and south".

    Gassho, J
