Coltrane Passes

File under: Mahasamadhis

Alice Coltrane, widow of jazz avatar John Coltrane and guru Swamini Turiyasangitananda to her chelas, went into mahasamadhi this past Monday, January 15, from respiratory failure. She left this Earth as an acolyte of the kid-diddling avatard, Sai Baba. We held that against her when we spoke of her a few months ago. We don't anymore.

We're going to chalk it off to a case of space-daddy madness. Our feeling is that Ms. Coltrane was sincere, if not in abject denial about the predilections of her hero. She just had a particularly strong space-daddy gene, and so was able to manifest much of her own spiritual experience against the backdrop of her faith in the Babaster. It proves our maxim, that a bad guru can be extremely good for a sincere devotee.

Despite her connection to that flimflamming pedophile, we find the world slightly less without Alice Coltrane around anymore.

Unfortunately, you could be right! I think every human being deserves at least one compliment, but in Chuck's case, imitation is the only possible one I could think of. :)
