Re: PASSING> Steven D. Goodman (75)

Dear Colleagues,

Here is a nice remembrance published in the local Berkeley paper, a little light on the academics, perhaps. https://www.berkeleyside.com/2020/08/06/remembering-steven-d-goodman-aut....

Steve was my first Buddhist philosophy teacher, back at the Nyingma Institute in the mid-70s. He made it all seem very exciting. He had a sparkling wit, and a generous heart.

PASSING> Steven D. Goodman (75)

Dear Colleagues,

I saw this on Twitter, and don't have any further information, so I'll just pass along this brief note:

Author, professor, and translator of Tibetan Buddhist texts, Steven D. Goodman, passed away on August 3 at the age of 75.

Perhaps someone else will be able to provide details when they are forthcoming.
