Yes, could be "Yongzin" or "Yongdzin," which is much more common. I've not heard of "Yangzin" as a name, but I've heard of Yang Kyi, and De Yang.....pretty rare, though.

If you can scan in the Tibetan, we can give you a definitive answer!

"Powerful Woman of Virtue/Merit" ;)

I've translated the -mo as "woman" here, for your own reference, as -mo and -ma are the typical female endings, counterparts to -pa and -po. Thought you could just as easily make it gender neutral in English by saying "person" or "one."

Hope that helps!


Sidenote: You're saying Gewa everytime you do your dedications at the end of yidam practice, and often at the end of teachings with visiting lamas: "Gewa di yi nyur du dak..."

Can you confirm or deny that the Tibetan looks like this?
ཀརྨ་སྒྲོལ་མ་ལྷ་རྫས་།

Karma = Activity (usually designates you took Refuge under a lama in the Karmapa's lineage, Karma Kagyu)
Drolma = Tara, "She who Liberates"

Lhazey is probably a phonetic transcription of Lhadze as written above, which is translated as "Divine emblem(s)" in the Tashi Gyepa (a.k.a. Mipham Rinpoche's Prayer to the Eight Noble Auspicious Ones). It could also be "divine silk" (a poetic way to refer to a yidam's clothing or a khata).

Altogether it's something like "[Activity of] Tara's Divine Symbol."

There's a small restaurant (sa khang) right across from the Norbulingka which has the name Yongdzin. Next time i go i'll make sure to write down the Uchen so that we can let you compare it against your Refuge card, Elle.

It means something like "Light of great bliss".

Hello
I've just recently taken refuge and was given the name DECHEN DRONME or DECHENDRONME (I do not know if this is one word or two)- do you know what it means? Can you help me?
Thank you
Peace and Blessings

There's a small restaurant (sa khang) right across from the Norbulingka which has the name Yongdzin. Next time i go i'll make sure to write down the Uchen so that we can let you compare it against your Refuge card, Elle.
