Explanation & Instructions
- This is an explanation of KAIMYO in Japan by certain Japanese(who cannot do English conversation and has little knowledge about the Buddhism).
- KAIMYO(戒名) is posthumous Buddhist name given from Buddhist priest after death.
- Having a kaimyo means that the deceased has become a disciple of Buddha and has entered heaven.
- But, in the contemporary society, KAIMYO is formally given to the person who is not the fervent Buddhist.
- I will omit the detailed explanation to become the complicated grandiosity when I try very accurate explanation about KAIMYO.
- Originally, IGO(The title,suffix) "Shinji" "Shinnyo" is applied to lay Buddhist.
- Originally, "Koji" "Daishi" is rank upper than "Shinji" "Shinnyo". And it is applied for an elderly person mainly.
- KAIMYO that you can make on this website is a joke.
- KAIMYO that you can make on this website is not KAIMYO conformed to a rule of the Buddhism strictly.(Formal KAIMYO has some differences by the denomination.)
- This website can make your own KAIMYO(joke). It is not the service for the bereaved family of the person who actually died.
- IGO different from the adult is applied to the child. However, because child's KAIMYO won't be made while it is alive, KAIMYO of child's IGO cannot be made on this website.
