I didn't really know James, but having lost family members and Dharma friends, I understand how some of you may be feeling. Sending metta....

I should probably check on announcements more often. :(

This is terrible news.

I wish him peace and metta from this life into the next.

Wah, I am speechless.

Had no idea this had occurred. Silly that I happened to visit a forum I'd not been on in months to hear this news.

I met James a few times. He was an extremely warm and genuine person, and he loved the Dhamma. Doubtless he has a few positive rebirths in store.

Best wishes to James' family and all.

Unquestionably, he was one of the good guys. He is, indeed, missed.

I am thankful for his practice and thankful to Eknow him. May he and his loved ones be well.

Birthdays are great days, they are always her to remember the gift we have been given by an other person.

I didn't knew him, but here are a lot of people who like to celebrate: JCSuperstar

So party for JCSuperstar where ever he may be around actually!
Just that! *smile*
...We Buddhists must find the courage to leave our temples and enter the temples of human experience, temples that are filled with suffering. If we listen to Buddha, Christ, or Gandhi, we can do nothing else. The refugee camps, the prisons, the ghettos, and the battlefields will become our temples. We have so much work to do. ... Peace is Possible! Step by Step. - Samtach Preah Maha Ghosananda "Step by Step" http://www.ghosananda.org/bio_book.html

BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Punna Sutta Nate sante baram sokham _()_

Happy Birthday JC...

May JC be well wherever he is (surely in some deva realm)
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
(Jhana Sutta - Thanissaro Bhikkhu translation)

Better a human realm in a Dhamma practicing family.

Indeed!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
