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....
Wishing: In gladness and in safety,
May all beings be at ease.

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...

:anjali:
The heart of the path is SO simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice. Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing. Of course, there are dozens of meditation techniques to develop samadhi and many kinds of vipassana. But it all comes back to this - just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. - Ajahn Chah

May JC be well wherever he is (surely in some deva realm)

Better a human realm in a Dhamma practicing family.

Indeed!
"Only those who take to meditation with good intentions can be assured of success. With the development of the purity and the power of the mind backed by the insight into the ultimate truth of nature, one might be able to do a lot of things in the right direction for the benefit of mankind."
