Charles DiSimone's picture

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great regret that I report the unfortunate news of the passing of Professor Seishi Karashima last night. He was a leading figure, and perhaps one of the most productive, in the field of Buddhist Studies. His passing is a terrible loss. An obituary will be made available in due course.
