Acharya S/D.M. Murdock has passed away due to cancer on December 25th, 2015 oddly enough considering how much she wrote about pre-Christian religious concepts and rituals that probably led to Christmas type celebrations. She was much concerned about the third wave of the Abrahamic religions that now is entering into Europe, namely Islam. It might be a coincidence but it is indeed a very bizarre one and one that is rich in symbolism that she passed on December 25th of all days. The day when the Sun is reborn and light returns to the world, a central mythological aspect to her work.
