Help for a nickname in Pali

Post by agrume197007 » Fri Jul 13, 2018 11:31 am

Hi all,

I'd like to use the nickname "A man of / on the Path", meaning I am someone that is trying to follow the Noble Eightfold Path. Now, by searching Google I concocted "Maggamanusa". Does it make sens? Thanks!

A more suitable name would be Maggajīvī, 'one who lives on the right path', or Maggacārī, 'one who practises the path'.

Another word is Maggika - 'wayfarer' (or tramp), but the meaning is not specific to Dhamma.
