Under that pretext I stayed with him longer than usual and he passed on various books and papers to me. He was discarding what was inessential or complete and retiring to a more spiritual life.

After that a few months elapsed and I didn’t receive any letters from him, which was unusual. Then I was awoke one night late after midnight. The thought came to me that Dr. Vashta might have passed away. He had a heart attack some years ago and his heart condition kept him from being very active. Sometimes I received phone calls from India late at night and wondered if I might soon receive one announcing his demise. That very moment the phone rang. A call came from friends in India giving the sad news that Vashta recently had died of a heart attack. It was in late July.

To deal with the emotion I took a drive up in to the mountains, which are about half an hour by car from here. Next to the side of the road I suddenly saw a magnificent elk with large horns, something I have never seen in the mountains in many years. I felt that it indicated Vashta’s soul, character and destiny.
