Dear Beloved Community,
On 25th September, our Deer Park Monastery in California held a memorial service to remember and celebrate the life of our dearly beloved Brother Phap De (“Young Brother”), who passed away peacefully on August 4, 2016, at the age of 81.
Brother Phap De had been in ill health for a few months, and passed away surrounded by the love and chanting of his monastic brothers and sisters and close family.
May the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again
