Thanks, Dominik, for letting us know. You mentioned that he kindly shared a
number of publications with you over the internet very recently. Do you
know if he ever completed books 3 and 4 of his excellent translation of the
Yogasūtra? Some years ago I communicated with him about these, which at
that time he had not done.

Best regards,

> particularly devoted to spreading the practice of meditation.
> I met him in London, many years ago, when in a single afternoon's work on

> invaluable notes and suggestions about the manuscripts he had examined.  I
> exchanged emails with him only a few weeks ago, when he kindly shared a
> number of publications with me over the internet.  He will be much missed.
