Overview:

It is with great sadness that we share that John Simpson passed away Saturday, April 24th. He had spent that day at DNKL helping us with our spring clean-up and it was wonderful seeing him and so many of our friends - it was the first time we were all together since COVID started. 
 
John’s dedication to DNKL, his development/practice, and all sentient beings was truly an example of remarkable steadfastness to Buddha Dharma. John generously shared his wisdom, virtue, generosity and resources, and he created great amounts of merit and virtue.
 
Even if you don’t know John personally, it will be very beneficial to him, especially over the next 49 days after his passing, to keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Consciously dedicating some of your joyful daily activities both in meditation and off the cushion to the well being of John, is a powerful way you can directly benefit him. 

During this prayer we will recite text from "A Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life" (attached) and will recite the Medicine Buddha and Tara Mantra's.  This puja will be dedicated to our friend John Simpson, his family and to all sentient beings; particularly to the well being of the center's students, family, friends and volunteers.
