Ven Myokyo-ni

Visvapani's obituary of Ven Myokyo-ni appeared in The Guardian on April 23 2007. Ven Myokyo-ni was one of the first Westerners to undertake Zen training in Japan, and brought an uncompromising spirit to her teaching. She had been head of London's Zen Centre, which began life as the Zen group within the Buddhist Society, and is located in the house bequeathed to them by Christmas Humphries.

The Buddhist Society website says that there will be a memorial for her sometime in the future.
