I wish I had had the chance to meet him before he passed away.
Not to derail the thread, but the center I attend in flushing is part of his DDM school, and a few years ago I had the amazing opportunity to attend a talk on his very last visit to the united states. The man had a palpable calming presence that you felt as soon as he went by. That may very well have been the most powerful experience of my life, it was that incredible.
