Prayers for Georg Feuerstein

From Brenda Feuerstein:
"It is with great sadness that I announce that my husband and spiritual partner, Georg Feuerstein, Ph.D., left his body on August 25, 2012 at 9:10 PM.
At this time, I would like to request prayers from the worldwide community for Georg’s transition through the afterlife states and for a swift rebirth."
Dr. Feuerstein's dedication and contribution to the study and preservation of yoga and the expression of those teachings cannot be measured. 

His website, books, manuals and movie appearances are priceless reference materials which will continue to inspire and illuminate our practice for many years to come.

I personally consider Dr. Feuerstein's Yoga Philosophy Teacher Training Manual to be of the highest calibre, and have been proud to use it as a primary reference in my Origin, History and Basic Philosophy of Yoga classes since it first became available in 2007.

Thank you, Dr. Feuerstein.  Thanks and loving sympathies to you, Brenda. 

Honoring Brenda's request, I offer these prayers.

Georg, Yogi of Noble Birth, may you journey fearlessly though the transitory states of existence and be released from the cycle of birth and death, or find your way to a peaceful rebirth where you can continue to benefit all beings.  Om Trayambakam x 108. 


  1. Namaste dear Tara
    Thank you for this lovely tribute to Dr. Feurerstein. I was surprised and saddened to hear of his passing. I had hoped one day we might travel to SK to meet and thank him for his work. Thankfully he has left such a rich legacy.

  2. Thank you, Tara, for this beautiful prayer offering.
    Please know that our home and retreat/research centre in Saskatchewan is open to you anytime.

    Much love, in the service of Yoga,
