For years, as a member of the Institute of Buddhist Studies Advisory Board, Prof. Nagatomi provided us with invaluable advice and support. In conversation with his widow, Mrs. Masumi Mary Nagatomi, we learned that he had intended to devote more of his precious time and energy to the Institute. Unfortunately, his final illness made it impossible for him to fulfill this wish. In recognition of his intent, Mrs. Nagatomi has very generously donated his personal library to the Institute.
In commemoration of this, we wish to conduct a ceremonial event to express directly our deepest gratitude to Mrs. Nagatomi and to offer thanks for Prof. Nagatomi”s contribution to the field of Buddhist studies. Please join us in the ceremony and a reception afterwards. We would appreciate it if you could RSVP to Kumi Hadler (email@example.com / 510-809-1444) by Friday, October 17, 2008.
