JUNEAU - A Buddhist lending library has been established in memory of Michael O'Leary, who was killed while forecasting avalanche conditions on Mount Eyak in Cordova on March 8, 2008.
Donations are being sought for Dharma books to be sent to the Mu Do (meaning no path or no road) zendo in Cordova. All lineages, including Zen, Tibetan and Theravada, are being accepted, and the books will be openly shelved at Cordova's Orca Book and Sound Book Store and made available for anyone who wishes to borrow.
The Mu Do sangha has been together for five years and meets Sunday mornings at the Current Rhythms Dance Studio in Cordova. Mu Do zendo is affiliated with the Anchorage Zen Center with services provided by priest, Koun Franz.
Thank you to those who have already contributed and special thanks to Rob Steedle who has generously provided funds for shipment to Cordova. To schedule a pick up of your books, call Robin Beaudry at 364-2403 or 586-7316.
