Very sad but only because of his departure. At 92 years, this man lead a great life. A master of the sitar, great philosophy and personality, and very
charitable. It was good to have a man like Mr. Shankar on this Earth.
Not much else can be sad, save for paying respect. I'm sure he's up there playing with George right now.

I have been having extra weird synchronicitys lately... I went on a random youtube journey, which somehow found me looking up John lennon videos in a
conspiracy mind set, because some alex jones thing with manchurian candidates, based on the batman shooting, which I accidently heard while listening
to Jesse Ventura talk about true TV messing up the show "conspiracy theory" on purpose...
which led me to think about John Lennon and George, and how they were such awesome people and what could I do today to honor their memory, never
realising until later (just now) it's near the anniversary of Johns death. I then from there started playing every George Harrison song I could
I listened to this album titled Living in the Material World
The first song was played over and
over.. It's called, Give me Love (give me peace on Earth)
Then I got into the Indian side of george's music so I Obviously had to play within you without you.. Here is a nice video of that showing imagery and
George learning to play Sitar from Ravi Shankar..
I then went on to play a couple more Ravi Shankar songs.. Then I found this interview I have somehow never watched.. IT was called
George Harrison's last concert
This spontaneous playing at the end of an interview WITH Ravi Shankar as well, was the last public performance George ever gave...
So all day after that I have been stuck listening to Sitar music from Ravi Shankar, and Thinking about death, and one of George's
quotes: "Everything else can wait, but the search for God cannot wait, and love one another."
In all of this the Irony, the sweet perfection, that I was enjoying Ravi's Music as he died, while thinking about death..
This thread is the first I heard about this.. I am not shocked though. My life does this to me.
R.I.P. Ravi Shankar. I hope I have honored your memory today.
