: I received my refuge vows only recently. The dharma name given to me was Kunga Detsu-joyful ocean of bliss.
: I would appreciate any insights regarding a more in depth explaination of the name. I understand it, but not really- PLease help to provide some clarity for me. Thankyou so much !!!!!

What more clarity can you get? Joyful is self expanitory, ocean cover 2/3 or close to somethig like tht and bliss is bliss so I would say that the name is joy that is vast of an ocean and bliss is of the same accord. What a beatiful name to be give. Look in the dictionary for those definitions and you got your meaning which means the potential of all of it and that it is yours alone and what you are capable of achiving
How forunate. Some of us get names that aren't even broken down into English and then we have to wait for someone that knows Tibetan that can us the meaning of it.
May you use it well and live up to the name that has been given to you.
