We are saddened to share the news that Raji Ramanan, a steadfast member of the KF India Program Committee since its inception and a former KF board member, has passed away. Raji played a key role in actively working to revive Buddhism across India, engaging with groups across the country to organize and participate in “Dhamma Teachings” in small villages.

Raji’s commitment to making Buddhism accessible across India led to her translating multiple texts into Indian languages, traveling across the country to personally assist KF-India grantees, and teaching more than 40 courses at Deer Park Institute.

Her contribution to KF, SI, and Buddhism as a whole will be greatly missed.
