Question: Dear brother, How would you console a soul whose friend has left the body suddenly? I am terrible when it comes to sending condolence and I don’t want to sound like I’m giving the Raja Yoga Foundation Course (1st Lesson). You are an excellent writer and poet. Can you please write a few words so I can share with my friend. Many thanks.

Thank you for your question!
Here is what I would say to your friend:

“Dear friend, Accept my deepest sympathy in this moment of grief.
If there is anything that I can do to help during these difficult times,
please let me know. I value your friendship.”

That is all. No need for flowery words neither for a Raja yoga class. Acknowledge your friend’s sorrow and let him/her tell you what you can do to help.

Best wishes!
