I knew your father, Brother Turiyananda, at the SRF Lake Shrine, for the first five years I attended services and served there, until he passed in 1990. He was a great soul, an inspiration to so many of us aspiring to someday achieve spiritual liberation. Bro. T., as we sometimes called him, gave the most powerful and dynamic services of almost anyone I have ever heard, brimming with wisdom, humor, intelligence, and heart-felt devotion. He once told me that he would spend 35 hours preparing for one 40-minute Sunday service. He had a huge heart and was empathic toward everyone. Once when a bus load of psychiatric inpatients visited the Lake Shrine, he teared up as he hugged one because he said he could feel the person's deep pain.

Your father was a spiritual giant!
