It was with great sadness that we learned of the death from cancer of Dharmacharini Suvarnaprabha in San Francisco, on Tuesday 24th September.
Suvarnaprabha died at home at 4.40pm, in the company of her three sisters and her friends Julie and Padmatara. She was buried on the afternoon of Friday, 27th September in a green cemetery on a hill in Marin County.
Suvarnaprabha was ordained in October 2001, with Sanghadevi as both private and public preceptor. The practice she took at ordination was the Prajnaparamita sadhana. She turned 50 in August this year.
