 "Attached is a photo of the kanji [久誓 - tmc] for Kyusei. At the jukai ceremony of 2006, the preceptor, John Daido Loori stated that my dharma name of Kyusei means "Endless Vow." However, as a note of caution, Daido Roshi was thoroughly American, and although he was a highly motivated, energetic student of kanji, his grasp of kanji was necessarily colored by being a native English speaker. Years later, at Toshoji, a Soto monastery in Okayama Prefecture, the abbot of that training monastery told me that Kyusei does not mean "Endless Vow." However, the actual meaning [= "long time, old story" + "vow, swear, pledge" - tmc] was not supplied to me at that time", Paula Bakule, email, 24 Nov 2023.
