Memorial & Zhitro for Jillian Patricia

With Pema Khandro

July 28, 2021

Our beloved friend Jillian passed away last night from cancer. She was surrounded by friends and family. Jillian was a true and brave buddhist, beautiful person and friend. She really loved dharma. We are grateful for her warmth, kindness, bravery and dharma friendship.

Pema Khandro will lead the first Zhitro and memorial for our beloved friend, Jillian Patricia, this Wednesday, July 28th, at 6:45pm -7:45pm San Francisco Time/ 9:45-10:45 New York Time.

49 Days is the period of transition in the post-death state, the time in which we can be of great benefit for the deceased. If you would like to participate in offering Zhitro for Jillian, you can sign-up to hold a day here*: LINK: 49 Days of Zhitro for Jillian

*Signing up to hold a day would not be guided, these Zhitro practices will be happening on your own, at your own time of day/pace.

May Jillian find ultimate liberation and peace in the bardo.
