On the evening of Tuesday, July 22nd at 7 pm, we will hold a special 7-day memorial service at Dhammadharini Vihara for the venerable Ayya Dipa, our Dhamma sister and member of our Bhikkhuni Sangha, who passed away this past Tuesday evening at our sister monastery, Mahapajapati, in Southern California. Ayya Dipa is the first bhikkhuni sister of our newly emerging Theravada Bhikkhuni Sangha in North America to pass away.

I don't actually know this person, but I can offer a general condolence.
