    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,
        Kelly-Jinmei

                    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".
