    I've done decades of research... I just do not trust anyone who says they are doing "God's work".

    ding dao in Mandrin technically means "do you dare the Dao?" and is translated as "Are you a Daoist Master?"
    I was actually asked that!
    In Japan the Mandrin pronunciation is used for "Are you enlightened?"
    All loss of face questions are asked using a Chinese euphemism. So that if the answer is loss of face, in this case it's the affirmative, you can pretend you don't understand.
