    Do us all a favor, when you change your names, please put in your post footer for awhile "The Chikyou formerly known as 'Kelly'" or the like ...

    ... otherwise it sometimes gets confusing until we get used to the new you.

    PS I've chosen to drop the "u" from my name as I understand it can be spelled two ways in English.

    Clearly I’m not the only person wondering this then…

    I’d like to start using my Dharma name, it’s Myojin.

    Hi Chikyo!

    I'm afraid there's a bit of a hiccup on the forum side of things. We have another Chikyo here who's already registered with the name, and the forum can't accept duplicate usernames. Would it be OK to change your forum username to Chikyou? You can absolutely still drop the 'u' everywhere else and use 'Chikyo,' of course

    Hi Seishin,

    I'm afraid you're also running into the same issue that Chikyo is, in that there's already a Seishin registered on the forum (and we're unable to have duplicate usernames).

    I can update it to something else if you'd like, but I'll need to look into alternative options.

    Ooops. Kryllos undertook Jukai here back in 2010 (our other friend "Seishin" merely in 2017, a mere child in comparison! )

    So, how about "Seishin the Elder"?

    Could you help me change to Hōzan?
    Or alternatively Hōuzan if already taken?

    BTW, you can actually correctly spell Hōzan as Houzan if it’s easier to type without the special character ..

    Heya!

    This is the season of complex name change requests!

    Alrighty, so I can change yours to the following, since Hozan is taken: Hōzan or Houzan. As Bion noted, Houzan is also correct—if you prefer not to type in the diacritical ō each time you sign-in.

    Your choice!

    If it is possible, could I switch to shinkon instead of Joeg. It is my part of my dharma name from my priest ordination last year.

    I will make the change, Shinkon.

    You are rather in an unusual place as a novice priest here, as you are still applying for the Monastery of Open Doors. I look forward to receiving your formal application.

    Can do! Before I make the change though, I'd like to ask if you'd prefer Onshō or Onsho. (with or without the diacritical). Since you'd have to add the ō when you log in.

    Forum Display Name Change Requests

    Hello,

    In order to be better aligned with the convention around here, I would like to please change my name just to Austin. Thank you so much.

    There is a very simple way to become Buddha. Do not commit unwholesome actions; be without attachment to life and death; show profound compassion for all sentient beings; respect those above and have pity for those below; do not have a heart of likes and dislikes, aversions or desires, nor thoughts and worries about things. This is to become Buddha. Do not search someplace else.

    –Dōgen, Shōji

    Hello Austin, I just did the change.
    Gassho,
    Kotei sat/lah today.

    義道 冴庭 / Gidō Kotei.
    Being a novice priest doesn't mean my writing about the Dharma is more substantial than yours. Actually, it might well be the other way round.
