Joshua Zim was the first information officer of Vajradhatu (now Shambhala) and the first editor-in-chief of the Vajradhatu Sun, which has since evolved into Lion’s Roar.
Joshua died in retreat on October 22, 1985, after suffering from a debilitating illness for several years. A few days before his death, Joshua wrote a letter to Rinpoche that was found in the retreat cabin, along with his body. Here is a copy of the original letter in Joshua’s handwriting. Thank you to Judith Ferris, Joshua’s widow, for permission to reproduce this letter.
