I am so sorry for Dr. Blumenthal's early passing. He was erudite, articulate and approachable. Just what is needed in a Dharma teacher. I must move out of state in six weeks and am shocked that Abbot Kyogen Carlson has passed unexpectedly this month and now Dr. Jim Blumenthal. The Broader Buddhist Community of Portland will dearly miss these two visionary leaders. With deepest condolence, Gregory Gibbs, Buddhist Churches of America Minister.
