Japanese professional shakuhachi player Mr.Kanzaki Ken passed away on Februrary 14th.
He was at seventy five years old.
He had given many lessons to Taiwan and Chinese shakuhachi students.
I pray for him.

This may help. Words of condolences by Benjamin Franklin to the widow of his former friend:

A man is not completely born until he is dead.

Why then, should we grieve, that a new child is born among the immortals? We are spirits! That temporal bodies should be lent us, while they can afford us pleasure, assist us in making a living, or in acquiring knowledge, or in doing good to our fellow creatures, is a kind and benevolent act of God. When these physical bodies become unfit for these purposes, affording us pain instead of pleasure, becoming a burden instead of a blessing, it is equally kind and benevolent that God has provided a way by which we can vacate them.

Death is that way! Our friend and I were invited abroad on a party of pleasure, which is to last forever. His chair was ready first, and he is gone before us. We could not all conveniently start together; and why should you and I be grieved at this, since we are soon to follow, and know where to find him.

I'm sorry to hear of the passing away of Mr. Kanzaki Ken. He helped to take the shakuhachi to a new generation of players in China and Taiwan, as Kiyokazu Kishii mentioned.

Yes, Kanzaki sensei did an amazing job for the shakuhachi in Aisa.
