Does anyone know what "jukai" means? Does it exist in the Japanese language? Some said it means 'birth or emergence'. Some said it is not "jukai" but maybe "jetai" 'fertilization, conception (breeding)'.

I only find 3 occurrences of
じゅかい in my 大辞泉 (none of them dealing with birth):
- 受戒 → accepting/receiving Buddhist precepts
- 授戒 → giving/conferring Buddhist precepts to followers
- 樹海 → a "sea of trees"; "broad expanse of dense woodland"
Jetai is not a Japanese word.
