Dharma Holder - Boepsanim
Bishop–Elect (Skt. Saṃtati/Dharmadhā C: 法主; Py: Fǎlí; K. Boepsanim; Hg. 법주님; V. Huyếtthống Phápủng) A Bishop-elect (Intern Zen Teacher) is a Senior Monk/Priest who has been chosen to become a Bishop, and who has not yet been consecrated. The word “elect” does not necessarily mean “democratically elected.” It simply means “chosen” by a Zen Master to begin as an Intern Zen Teacher with students under the supervision of said Zen Master. In Sanskrit saṃtati means uninterrupted succession, lineage and dharmadhā means Dharma Holder.
