He passed at age 92 -- a few months longer than Dave Brubeck!

Very sad news. Ravi's influence, standing and music will last for many many generations and rightly so.heart

Deeply sad about his passing.... have fun over on the other side, I'm sure George is waiting for you.

"The phenomenon of death is merely the separation of the astral body from the physical body. The five elements of which the body is composed return to their source. Our scriptures teach us that as pilgrims unite and separate at a public inn, so also fathers, mothers, sons, brothers, wives, relations unite and separate in this world. He who thus understands the nature of the body and all human relationships based upon it will derive strength to bear the loss of our dear ones. In Divine plan, one day each union must end with separation."

Hindu Funeral Speech

Peace and Love, Ravi.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I don't understand why people are sad:  He lived 92 years of a full, productive, creative life -- almost right up to the very end, until just a few months of increasing illness (which, as I understand it, did not entail too much suffering).

 

What more could one ask?  Probably more than 50% of the world's population never even come close to being so lucky.

True but its still a loss to many. A great man who touched many people has died and thats a sad thing. Im sure that they will celebrate Ravi's life as well but any loss is hard even if the individual lives to 969. We mourn the loss and celebrate the life.

George Martin isn't dead.?

Yeah, and good job Ravi on having such a long and successful life. No loss for me, but a gain for him. I believe he's also a pro death gut.

For two cultures that spend a lot of time and writings elaborating the "transcendence" of death or even the non-existence of death, Hinduism and Buddhism sure seem obsessed with the matter.  De Nile ain't just a river in Egypt; it's also De Ganges.

Funny Paper:

Death is important to them, yes. Not because it means the end but because it's the way back to Godhead, back to source. The passsage to the Spiritual World from the Material World (which is where we are) is their only aim in life, the most important thing to them. That's not obsessing over death, as you put it.

Rest in peace, Ravi. You were indeed a great person.

Obsession is not always a bad thing. It seems like Ravi Shankar talked about death a lot. There is no problem with that, death is a wonderful thing, and he was a very religious person which would explain that. He was waiting to be with his god, which was a big part of his life, it seems like.

That's what I mean, it´s seen as a good thing rather than a terrible thing (although still sad when it does happen), so I don't understand why people say they ''obsess'' over it. And, like you say, is it even a bad thing if they do?

I agree with what you say - I guess that like many hindus, he only ever wanted to be with God. It makes me less sad when I think that, really, his death was soemthing that he wanted, in a way.

People are sad because of their own selfish need to have him around still. 92!! This should be celebrated instead of mourned! I'm with you Funny Paper!
