    Does anyone reading this have a Dharma name? If so, can you share with me what it is?

    I’m about to formally affirm that I will follow the 5 precepts (called “5 mindful trainings” at the monastery I practice as a lay brother). After which I am going to be given a Dharma name in the zen tradition. I have already followed the 5 precepts, however I am not perfect and sometimes I am hard on myself for it. The thing I am guilty of is not staying 100% vegan. I travel alot for work and it is really hard to find things not made with animal products while on the road.
