Here still a question which you will answer, I hope.
About the name which the Master gives us during the ordination of Bodhissatva.
Perhaps, it is wrong of me to be attached to it but I like it and it acts like a koan to be meditated since you gave it to me. Does one have to be attaches to it? To make use of it?
Answer from Master Kosen
The names of ordination in Japanese are a marvellous thing, sometimes I give them in Chinese, which enables us to open a new space in the brain where we had never penetrated before.
And to be a new person, a new potentiality of ourself. I even have many names.
