Vale Sally Gross

Postby Ben » Wed Feb 19, 2014 2:44 am

I have just learned that my dear friend and DW member, Sally Gross, passed away yesterday.

Sally Gross - Many parts to a whole

My merits I dedicate to you, my beloved friend!
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Sutta Nipata 3.725

If you have asked me of the origination of unease, then I shall explain it to you in accordance with my understanding:
Whatever various forms of unease there are in the world, They originate founded in encumbering accumulation. (Pārāyanavagga)

Exalted in mind, just open and clearly aware, the recluse trained in the ways of the sages:
One who is such, calmed and ever mindful, He has no sorrows! -- Udana IV, 7

Sally was a good online friend of mine since the e-sangha days. We exchanged some PMs and emails, some in English and some in Hebrew. May she attain favorable rebirth or liberation.
