One of seven inspiring translator/commentators with whom I’ve been spending time every night since I took on my ‘A Sutra a Day’ project is Georg Feuerstein.
I was sorry to hear that he passed away on August 25, 2012 in Southern Saskatchewan, Canada, where he enjoyed a quiet life on the prairies with his wife, Brenda.
Perhaps because I am older than Feuerstein when he died, I consider him much too young to go. But more importantly, as a scholar of considerable renown, a yoga practitioner from his adolescence, and a prolific writer, his contribution to yoga in the West has been monumental. His wisdom as a mature practitioner and teacher will be sorely missed.
