Passing Away

While I was away I received news that my DPP friend, Steve Young, who suddenly feel ill last month, passed away early on the morning of August 1. Steve was one of the resident caretakers at Spirit Rock. I am told that the staff there held a beautiful ceremony in which they rang the meditation bell in his honor 108 times.

All conditioned things are impermanent
Their nature is to arise and pass away.
To live in harmony with this truth,
Brings true happiness. 

I dedicate the merit of my practice during this month for the benefit of Steve, and for all beings, everywhere.
