On April 11, 2008, Beth Gray celebrated her 90th birthday. Peacefully and in the presence of loved ones, at home, she made her transition to the Unknown Adventure at 1:48 PM May 13.
Beth's life work was in healing and metaphysics. She founded the first Reiki center
in the United States, and brought Reiki to the continent of Australia.
Her life has touched thousands, and will continue to affect the young and as-yet unborn.
The Bardo Thodol, a Buddhist funereal purification, was chanted for her by Lama Gyaltsen Chophel.
He carried some of her ashes as he attended the Nechung Oracle, the state oracle of Tibet, on a trip to Korea and Mongolia,
then they were released into India's sacred river Ganges .
Her ashes have also been
incorporated into the bow of the Research Vessel Heraclitus during drydock in South Africa;
placed at the mountain shrine of the Matutu Foundation, Minas Gerais, Brasil
carried to the Himalayas by Paljor Thondup
placed on a mountaintop in Northern California, by her son John.
The remainder of her ashes were scattered into the Pacific Ocean by her daughter, Kathelin, on the anniversary of her birth.
