This isn't greatly dharma related, but this is the best place I can think of to ask this. When I took refuge, I was given the dharma name Chang Yuan.
This is a picture of the card from that day, if someone could get these chinese characters to me, that would be great.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean. Do you just want to have the characters in digital form or something, so you can then use them to look up a dictionary??

= chang2 = always, constant, permanent, enduring ...
= yuan2 = condition, relation(ship), connection, object of mind, reason, ...

Well, I would like to learn to be able to write them. So I'm not really sure if the digital version helps, or if there is a way to look up how to properly write it. Guess I should have stated that in the original request, sorry.

Copy and paste the characters (one at a time) into this:

http://www.cchar.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

That's a good one. Sometime last year I found a nice site with displayed character stroke order in animation. Has anyone ever seen such a site? I cannot find it again. Shoulda bookmarked it

http://cojak.org/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; has that feature, although not for every character.
