Obituary notice

More than our teacher. More than our friend. Asokananda died on Friday, 24th June 2005.

Deeply respected for his spiritual life, studies and teachings, we wish his light will forever stay with us.

Through each massage we give, every student we teach, we will always be thankful for what he simply allowed us to discover and share, everyday.
