My condolences go out to Mr Shankar's family during this time of grief. I am thankful to have had the opportunity to see him perform in the 1970's during the George Harrison tour and I was truly amazed by his musicianship.
He was a true gentleman and genuine humanitarian. His music will live on forever may God Bless him.

Thanks Ravi! I saw you with George Harrison and Billy Preston in Atlanta, back in November of 1974. Contrary to what the critics had to say, I thought the show was EXCELLENT! Thank you for sharing your wonderful musical talents with a western culture that many times did not have the patience or good sense to appreciate. Your influence on the Beatles' music, thru George's wishes, will forever be there for us to enjoy. Norwegian Wood and Within You and Without You were fine examples! Enjoy your Magical Mystery Tour Ravi and may god bless your soul and comfort your family in their loss.
Thanks For Sharing Your Gargantuan Talents!

I DANCED TO THE BEAUTIFUL MUSIC OF Ravi Shankar. Using veils I performed as I think Isadora Duncan would have, Ravi's music made my dancing a prayer.
December 13, 2012
The beauty and genius of Ravi Shankar will remain unsurpassed eternally.

Colors dance with emotions on the cosmic strings that vibrate through the soul.
The vast expanse of nothingness is not. For infinate numbers of stars, seen and unseen, fade, ebb and flicker, and are interconnected.
One influences the next, which influences the next, until the One.
Endless music fills the heavens.
Those who are in tune, forever shall hear His heart and soul pour forth the love of the old world and for a special few, the next.
May all who love Ravi Shankar hold him dear in their memories, and cry not out of grief, but cry out for the joy, love and the awesomeness that is He: "Ravi Shankar".

Peace to all.

I heard and saw Ravi Shankar play a marathon sitar solo in 1974. It was a once-in-a-lifetime event, though putting what he could do with that instrument into mere words fails. He will be missed but his impact on world music is eternal.

Oh what sorrow I woke up to this morning to find one of my favorite musicians is gone, but yet such joy to have enjoyed and loved your music for more than half my life. My journey with your music goes back over 30 years ago while living in Boise, Idaho. I did a little volunteer work at a radio station at the Boise state campus a little hole in the wall. Your music healed my greiving heart, restless spirit, and pain.......I will never forget the "PEACE" I felt. I learned all the great music, Coltrane, David Sylvian (who later became my newphew through marriage). I am saddened to no end, but know friend you will live on forever...........thank you........and peace, have a good journey, and perhaps may we meet someday.....Tina

The passing of Pandit Ravi Shankar is a great loss to the music world in both the East and the West. The world is going to be a much emptier place without him.
December 12, 2012
I know you are as at peace in your new life as you were in your old one.
December 12, 2012
When I was 8 years old in 1961, I walked up to the Valley Forge Music and peered over the last row of seats down to the center stage and saw and heard Ravi. tj
December 12, 2012
One of my inspirations in my formulative years, Ravi helped me see the inner light and peace of the world around me. I can still see him playing Raga Pura, tablas pounding in sync, and remember those days of my youth. Godspeed Ravi. Make music again with the rest of the band up there!
December 12, 2012
My daddy told me once that he and you use to make music together in the late 70's. He said you were one "Cool Dude" that loved pancakes and chorizo for breakfast.
December 12, 2012
What a wonderful memory to keep. Ravi was truely gifted. His talents be will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace.
December 12, 2012
May your journey into your next life be one of joy, happiness and freedom from suffering. Thank you for sharing your gift of music with the world.
December 12, 2012
A legend indeed! Listened to his music since I was a teenager - many years ago. He always brought me to another place. He will be missed, but led a long life. I know he will be playing to crowds up there.

It was wonderful to experience his feelings in music
December 12, 2012
I have admires his music and his soul since I was a teenager. I feel so blessed to have seen him perform. Perhaps Ravi is making music with George (Harrison) in heaven today.

He will certainly turn to the prayer of those stripped [of everything], And not despise their prayer.-
Psalm 102:17. May the Shankar family be comfort by these words.
