RIP Anna Beck

Anna Beck and her husband Bob owned and ran Tassajara Springs from 1960 to December of 1966. They were most pleased to pass it on to the San Francisco Zen Center. She said she felt like a handmaiden to Buddha. I just got word from their son Adam that Anna has passed on to the next bardo. No details yet. Farewell dear friend Anna and condolences to Adam.
