Who I just learned yesterday passed away.
Whom I met first two and a half years ago.
Whose light still reverberates through the three realms.

Who touched me deeply with his smile, his deep wisdom, his music.
Whom I would have easily given anything to had he asked.
Whose rebirth, should he take one, I pray will be most favorable.

Please, if you are drawn to Mahayana Buddhism, practice The Heart Sutra for him and for all who suffer. And, regardless, will you hold him in your thoughts?
