[N.B. This is the forum that was called ‘Exploring Buddhism’. The new name simply describes it better.]
asking about such a concept,
or wondering if that would be a good name for a new rock band?
The Chinese characters are Fo (buddha) and Ming (bright). The image is of a student of Buddhism, who, imagining himself to be a monk, and not understanding the true meaning of the words takes the sound of the words literally.

prayers for dead so that they don't go to hell?
You iz no fun . . .
There is a wonderful story of a (I think it was a PureLand Buddhist Master) who had a disturbing dream
In it he saw himself in the God Realm
He called his fellow monks together and with tears in his eyes
he recounted the portent dream
pleading they pray that he be sent to the hell realms
to rescue the beings dwelling there.
A true Bodhisattva or a silly old fool?
I believe picnic excursions to hell realms
and close down and desist notices are far more effective.
I will come and do the boiling alive and tap dancing - I have the feet for it . . .
Meanwhile any plans for living?
