I heard from several of my Kwan Um School friends that the Executive Director of the Kwan Um School of Zen passed away today. JW Harrington was the most joyous person I have ever had the pleasure of interacting with. He was always the manifestation of "how may I help you." Even in the hardest of times and under large amounts of pressure, he was always smiling and always thoughtful of everyone.
Please find it in your schedules to chant Jijang Bosal 108 times each day for the next 49 days in support of all the great Bodhisattva actions he has done for all of us in the Dharma. JW will be sorely missed by all his friends and acquaintances.
