May Aitken Roshi quickly return to lead all beings to enlightenment. He was a very great teacher and will be sorely missed.

I was saddened to read of Roshi's death - in my early days of Buddhism as a Zen Practitioner, I eagerly read as many of his teachings and books and articles that I could lay my hands on!
He will be missed.

The essence of a real practice is to bring our intellectual understanding to the level of our heart - so as to feel it - to live it!
