    To save all sentient beings, though beings are numberless.
    To penetrate reality, though reality is boundless.
    To transform all delusion, though delusions are immeasurable.
    To attain the enlightened way, a way non-attainable.

                So if I hand you a piece of paper with a name written on it, or record a CD of a name, or come to your house and say my name. Then that's a name no hobby for me??

                  Ah, that's interesting. He didn't ask for a piece of paper with your name on it. He said "bring me your name."
                  A piece of paper is a piece of paper. writing is writing, ink is ink. None are your name. How would you bring a name?
