On Saturday, November 26th, 2016, we lost a beautiful soul... 

​Jonathan D. Rosen, minister, master healer, singer, siddha, spiritual teacher, UCBK co-founder, and inspirational heart of service, left his body (in mahasamadhi) suddenly, after an unexpected heart attack. 

He has had a prodigious, ongoing impact on the Sai spiritual community both locally in Santa Cruz, California and worldwide (Europe, India, other parts of the US) for nearly two decades.

Jonathan's loving presence, brilliant mind, heart-melting singing voice, dedication to spiritual service, irrepressible sense of humor, and dynamic advocacy for our veterans and our homeless people has moved the hearts -- and changed the lives -- of many grateful people all around the world.

​The outpouring of love for him, on social media, via emails and texts and phone calls, has been overwhelmingly beautiful. 

There are no words to express the simultaneous sense of loss and gratitude to such a tireless, helping, compassionate human being.  

Jonathan is cherished -- and will be so, forever -- by the UCBK community, his family and friends, colleagues and students.  

Jonathan's impact on a wide variety
of communities & individuals...
reflected in a number of memorial events

Jonathan's life, times, love, service and contributions to all of our lives will be commemorated in a number of events over the next week.
