    Default Did the Golden Wheel Monk have a real name?

    When the Golden Wheel Monk was born, his parents obviously did not name him "Golden Wheel" . . . and this was also probably not the Buddhist name he was given when he first became a Lama Buddhist monk. Instead, "Golden Wheel" was an honorific title he received after he became regarded as enlightened.

    When the Golden Wheel Monk first met Gwok Seung, he introduced himself as a monk named "Chu Muk" (or something like that). Was this supposed to have been his real name (i.e. his original family name or his Buddhist name), or did he just make that name up out of nothing? I'm guessing that the Golden Wheel Monk did have a secular or Buddhist name . . . just as the Great Wheel Enlightened Monk from DGSD had the name "Kau Mor Tze".

    I believe the name introduced to GX was Cholmolungma. That refers to Mt. Everest, if I'm not mistaken. The GWM was probably trying to say that he was the greatest, but it was probably not his real name.

    EDIT: it's either Cholmolungma or Chomolungma, my search on google found both, but Chomolungma got more results.

    We know that Mit Jeut See Tai's secular surname was "Fong", but I don't know if her given name was ever mentioned.

    Golden Wheel Monk's real name was .... Gwok See

    Many times removed distant cousin of Gwok Jing!! How ironic that the Gwok clan would find itself on opposite sides

    What a shameless man? How could he considered himself as a greatest if he only goes after the weak or out number them? How could he considered himself as the greatest if he has no courage to fight someone at his level in a fair fight?
