"Dear brothers and sisters in the Dharma, Vidyajyoti died peacefully on 21 December 2010 at 4.23pm GMT. Her dear friends James and Sita were by her side. Friends gathered around her after her passing and we recited the Heart Sutra and chanted the Vajrasattva mantra.
"The cremation will be held with a small gathering of friends. A memorial service to celebrate her life and rejoice in her will take place at a later date in January at the London Buddhist Centre. Details to follow.
Yours in the Dharma"
Vidyajyoti was ordained in 2000, when she was given her name, meaning 'She who has the light or fire of learning or aesthetic appreciation'.
