We are sad to announce the passing of Luis Oscar Gómez, who died in Mexico City on September 3, 2017, at the age of 74. Professor Gómez was not only a great scholar and interpreter of Buddhism, one of the most eminent in North America, but he was also a good friend to all of us who work in the Ho Center for Buddhist Studies at Stanford. A member of our Advisory Council, he was also our Shinnyo-en Visiting Professor for two quarters in the Winter and Spring of 2013. We will miss his sage counsel, his prodigious learning, and his warm presence.
