i’ve never said so many Mantra rounds in my life…

My father, Henry George Ilg, entered the Bardo on May 23rd, 8:11pm at the age of 79 courtesy of a massive heart failure. He never broke untrue to his character; the absolute toughest Warrior ever…he was kicking and fighting the doctors until the sedation set in.

I’d like to thank all my students – local and global – for their patience with me as i continue to usher his Atman into the Bardo and be with my mother and our immediate family during this time. i’ll be back in Durango soon.
head bowed and please keep all of your Practices strong while always keeping one eye on the summit of Enlightenment…

more later…
