[98] "In our refuge ceremony on Saturday, March 25, 2006 seven folks gave vows and received rakusus and zen names from roshi John Tarrant of Pacific Zen Institute. For this group, roshi John put the Kanji on the rakusu and only the English name. If someone wants to use a Chinese or Japanese pronunciation of the Kanji then each person can choose which. My name is Heavenly Donkey [=Tenro? - tmc] : 天驢 This appears to be part of John Tarrant's practice of rooting Zen in this continent. So if you post the name on your website I suppose you would have to put the 'name' as 'Heavenly Donkey (E)' where (E) = English, with the 'meaning' as the same. I guess you could otherwise put the Kanji as the name with a (C). But there is no Chinese or Japanese name that was given. Gregory Wonderwheel, Santa Rosa, California".

Tamara Gabrysch, email, 17 Feb 2008.
[163a] Dear Matthew, I am happy to let you know that Genpo Roshi is fine for the names / dates / places of his Jukai recipients to be made public on your site. He would just like a footnote to mention that as he is not Japanese, the Dharma names conform to modern western idiom. [...]." Tamara Gabrysch, email, 29 Apr 2008.

[166] "'BUTSU' ['Buddha' and 'France' in old japanese] is the buddhist name given by Inoue Kido Roshi, head of Shorinkutsu-dojo, Hiroshima Pref., Japan, to his first western disciple: Stanis Chamodot. Yours sincerely, Shorinkutsu-dojo Europe.", Stanis Chamodot, email, 01 Apr 2008.
[167] "Dear Matthew, As promised, here is the list of Dharma Names that Tenkei Coppens Roshi has given to his students. I mentioned in the last email that he had great help from a friend of ours, a monk in Japan named Koichi Isoda, from Keishoin temple in Fuji City. He assists Tenkei Roshi in both translating and the relevant characters. These he is fine to be made public in their entirety. in gassho, Tamara.
PS I just received shiho from Genpo Merzel Roshi last week (!) This being, the listing for Tamara Myoho Gabrysch in Genpo Roshi's line could be changed from Assistant Teacher to Dharma Successor. Thanks!

Because it was so confusing to be known by one name and have my official identification in another, my name was legally changed many years ago. It is now simply "Mitra Bishop." Also, once I completed my formal practice at the Rochester Zen Center I went on pilgrimage to Japan (Japan only, since I had lived in Southeast Asia and been to Singapore and Hong Kongand later to Taiwan) in 1992 after having met Harada Shodo-roshi and done sesshin with him in the States. I spent two months at Sogen-ji in Okayama, Japan, (Harada-roshi's temple), then went also to sit at Soko Morinaga-roshi 's temple in Kyoto (Daishu-in), then did Rohatsu sesshin at Bukkoku-ji under Tangen-roshi. A few months later I returned to Japan and lived and trained for the next three years at Sogen-ji. When I returned from that period of intensive training, Roshi Philip Kapleau authorized me to teach. I have continued to train with Harada-roshi to this day, attending several sesshin a year with him, some at Sogen-ji and some in the States, while also teaching Zen students at Mountain Gate in northern New Mexico, U.S.A.

[258] "Corrections to Dharma names: "Gensei" and "Rokoji" - Hello, The teacher who held these names and who is referenced in source #103, Tenzan Toyoda, was my teacher. Following are some corrections regarding the meanings of these: 1. Gensei [] has the approximate meaning of "mysterious life". The current meaning showed in the list references a possible implication of the name in this particular case only, since Toyoda was a dharma descendent of Omori Sogen. But the actual meaning of the name is not as described. 2. Rokoji does indeed mean "old layperson". However, it is not a name but an honorific title. It is the analogue of the title Roshi: "Roshi" is used in Rinzai Zen for priests who receive inka shomei, while laypersons who receive inka might be called "Rokoji". Thanks very much for all your work, it's very helpful. Sincerely, Meido [Moore], www.rinzaizen.org", email, 28 Jun 2013.

[362] "Dear Dr Ciolek, [...] Im contacting you in my capacity as a Zen teacher in the White Plum Asanga, to say that I was given Dharma Transmission on 24th July 2016 by my teacher, Patrick Kundo Eastman Roshi, who gave me the Dharma name, Ryushin. [...] Thank you very much indeed. Best wishes, The Revd Canon Dr Christopher Collingwood", email, 29 March 2017

[364] Dear Dr Ciolek, I wonder if you would like to add my Dharma name to the list in the www virtual library of Zen Buddhist names.
I am a priest and my Dharma name by ordination was given to me by my teacher Genshin Roshi in 2013. My name is Jitei White. Jitei means Compassionate Gardener as I have been a professional gardener and a practising Buddhist for 35 years. I belong to the White Plum lineage of Soto Zen. My teacher (Genshin Roshi) was taught by Genpo Roshi.
Many thanks, Jitei www.jiteiwhite.com", email, 1 Jun 21017.
[365] "I am writing to add my Dharma name to your database.
My name is Jonathan McCollum. My dharma name is Seichō 清調, meaning pure melody. It was given to me by Bruce Seiryu Blackman, sensei in the White Plum Assanga.

[367] Given Name MYEONG - From Sino-Korean 明 (myeong) meaning "bright, light, clear" or other hanja characters with the same pronunciation. https://www.behindthename.com/name/myeong (site accessed 20 Feb 2018). [368] "[...] To answer your question about his [Daisetsu Tangen Harada Roshi] full Dharma name:
Daisetsu Tangen ׾տ 大拙 湛玄 great + unskilful, fill + mysterious
[...] Roshi-sama mentioned to me when I spent a short time with him that the Daisetsu part of his name means great stupid. The gen character ( 玄) in Tangen also occurs in his Dharma successor Hogens name, as well as some of Hogen-sans disciples, including mine. The common translation of gen is dark, obscure or occult, but I think a more accurate rendering is a reference to self-nature/original face, etc., which to most of us is just that, dark, obscure and esoteric. I see lots of interpretations of gen on your ZenNames page, so good luck with that.
My Dharma name, as well as what I know of, or believe to be, some of the other teachers sanctioned by Hogen-san (in no particular order) are as follows:
Please note that the English renderings are my research, unverified by anyone else. So caution is needed in their use.[...] The actual kanji characters for the names, in the same order, are as follows:
Western Name - Japanese name - Chinese/Japanese Characters - Literal Translation of Name
Peter Gallagher - Daigyo Genyo - [ ] 大行 玄洋 - great+ doing ; original nature + ocean
Eric Batten - Dokan - [?] 道貫 - Tao + penetration
Peter Bruza - Kakudo Genjo - [?] 覚道玄成 - enlightened way; original nature + completion
Mark Togni - Hogaku -[?] 法覚 - Dharma + awakening
Mike Hatchett - Jikai Doko - [Ⱥ ] 慈海 道光 - compassionate + ocean; Tao + light
Hope this helps. Let me know if youd like anything else that I may be able to help with. Fellow-collectors need to stick together, without of course becoming ensnared in names and forms. To me the lineage and names do have meaning and profound relevance.

[369] "Hi there, Couple questions for you: First, how did my name come to be on your site if I never sent it in? My name is Charla Malamed (English) Koren (Dharma). Also, if it's going to be on there can you place my English name by both the Koren's listed? The first, 'Bright Lotus,' was given to me by Joan Halifax at Upaya and the second, 'Refinement of Great Peace,' was given to me by Geoffrey Shugen Arnold at Zen Mountain Monastery.

However, in June 2013 I received ordination and the name was changed to Jindo (Benevolent way) Shokai (open to life) and I submitted that shortly after.

[379] "Shitsu means room, like dokusan room. In my case, Soen Roshi gave me the name Muishitsu, True Man Without Rank. Soen Roshi was called Mittakutsu, not shitsu; kutsu means cave. Gempo Roshi was also Hannyakutsu, cave. There is no difference between kutsu and shitsu, just sound-wise, Mittashitsu is not as good as Mittakutsu. Gempo Roshi, Hannyakutsu, means Cave of Wisdom. Mittakutsu Soen Roshi means Cave of Paramita, to reach the other shore. For the past couple of years, I have been thinking of her name, this and that. Soon you will see what I wrote for her Roshi name. This is the time for you to unveil [the calligraphy with the Shitsugo]. It reads, Shingeshitsu. Shin means Heart/Mind. Ge means Flower. And Shitsu, room. Thus, room for your heart to bloom." s.11-12 http://www.zencenterofsyracuse.org/sites/default/files/dharmaConnection2008.pdf (site accessed 2 Dec 2018).
