      Dear Kris
      Yes, it’s a tremendous loss to all of us who loved her and have benefited so much from her tireless efforts to teach us all.
      It’s so sad, but I am sure she would tell us to keep practicing and work hard to achieve the state of Yoga.
      It’s at times like this that the impermanence of the material world are thrust into our awareness.
      Geetaji’s karma will doubtless have good results for the next incarnation.
      Still, I for one, will miss her so much ,
