 I knew you only through your writing, So deeply honest, dynamic and brilliant, Your words touched me like no other scholar’s. Because of you, my path formed. I hold you so very high and dear, The inspiration for my Buddhist Feminism. Your wish to eradicate the androcentric and the patriarchal, Your hopes for equality and gender neutrality, Will live on through me—and so many others. I am sorry we never met, But I bow in gratitude for everything you said and lived. As you fly to your rebirth, I hold your memory with tenderness and in hopes that You may know how vital you remain to me…to us, Our bodhisattva of radical change.
