What's Your Buddhist Name?

I found a link to an ordination name generator in an old post at SlowZen... Again. Thanks, Jordan!

My Buddhist name is Bodhisattva Moon Torch. Don't miss out on this chance to be a Major Zen Dude or Diva. Get yours today! And let us know what your new name is.

  3. My buddhist name is Great Teacher Mother Brightness. Kind of nice to think I could be a mom in my next life. I think I'll have a nice cup of Zen tea now and relax.

  5. Very good question. Seems to me Bashō called himself Travel-Worn Satchel. I think you're onto something there: the real heavyweights have the self-deprecating names.

  7. Wa??? is right. First I put in only my first name and it said mine is "The Girl Ever Constellation" Figure that one out.

    Then I put in both first and last names and got: "Great Teacher Golden Brightness". Getting better eh?

    Next my first, middle and last name and: "King Wind Truth" Starting to like this.

  8. I think some of these names are for a life already lived, or maybe not yet lived. (Or in your case, three lives.) Hence the gender whimsy. I have no idea what logarithm they use for this, but it's pretty random.

  9. 'Queen Infinite Treasure' for first and last name, but 'King Pervading Pervading Suffering' for first name only - mhmhm....
