Our dear friend Mr Gaku Takanashi passed away suddenly yesterday right before he was to give my son a guitar lesson. My daughter and mother-in-law saw him being wheeled out of the school on a stretcher.
Life ends suddenly and often without warning. May we not waste it in vain pursuits.
My family is sponsoring a dana and chanting for him. If you are so inclined phrase dedicate the merit of your practice to him.
