Gaku Takanashi

Our dear friend Mr Gaku Takanashi passed away suddenly yesterday right before he was to give my son a guitar lesson. My daughter and mother-in-law saw him being wheeled out of the school on a  stretcher. 

Life ends suddenly and often without warning. May we not waste it in vain pursuits. 

My family is sponsoring a dana and chanting for him. If you are so inclined phrase dedicate the merit of your practice to him.

  1. I found it by searching Gaku’s news – too sudden. I am in Tokyo, Gaku and I have been school mate since our 1st grade to the high school. Many of ex-school mates are shocked and want to hear details.

    Rest in peace Gaku.

    • My condolences to you as well. They are holding a memorial service soon. I will post more details as they become available. Gaku was a very special person and will be missed. May he have a favorable rebirth. Metta.
