What's in Our Dharma Name?

Daiko Charles Carpenter Daiko - Dai: Great; ko:
Carpenter or Builder

"Soen expanded it to 'Dharma Carpenter' – a take off, of course, on my name. Reizan, Sacred Mountain, was the name Soen Roshi gave me when I became a monk."

Daishin Peter Gamby Daishin - Great Mind/Heart

"I don't think too often about my Dharma name, but when I do, it gives me inspiration and encouragement."

Eshin Brenda Shoshanna Eshin - Wisdom and Faith

"I have always loved this name. It feels so good to say it and hear it said. Growing into wisdom and faith is a true practice and koan."
