Re: Kensho Furuya Sensei Passes Away
I was reading through Furuya sensei's "daily messages" from the Aikido Center of Los Angeles" dojo website and came across this. It is from April of last year:
"If I die today, at least I can say that I did a good Memorial Service for O'Sensei and seminar and I have left behind many good students true to the Path of Aikido - that is all I need for this life. Many, many thanks!
I often see people who come and go always telling me that they are looking for happiness and freedom. If you cannot find it within your own heart, you will never find it at all. . . ."
He passed on in his dojo, watching his students train, and doing what he loved most-Aikido and teaching.
