Sad news of my friend Alan Kozlowski’s passing away this morning. I haven’t known him many years, but we were quite close in these last years and he made the beautiful photographs of the Tara statues in the Tara Mandala temple that we use on our Facebook posts and in many ways. He drove all the way from California in his decked out Sprinter to photograph them and then drove all the way back.And did it all as an offering to Tara Mandala.He was a musician, award winning filmmaker (Director of Photography for Dzongsar Khyentse’s film Travelers and Magicans for example) and developed a studio for Visual Special Effects winning Oscars for Independence Day, Titanic, and What Dreams May Come. He was a close student of Ravi Shankar and made a documentary about him, and close friends with Jackson Browne and Jeff Bridges amongst other illuminaries. And he was a practicing Tibetan Buddhist. I went to see him a few weeks ago at his home in Santa Barbara, social distancing and wearing masks of course, and gave him a copy of the CHOYING DZOD the ‘Basic Space of Phenomena’ teachings on the nature of mind and also had Tara Bast a professional voice over reader, read it and record it, to listen during his time of passing. now at Tara Mandala we will do 49 days of Shitro for him and light many butterlamps. Also I requested Bhakha Tulku to do Phowa for him, and he said he would. Safe travels dear friend you will be missed.
Remembering and honoring my dear friend, brother and mentor Alan Kozlowski today, who passed early this morning. Alan was an amazing photographer, cinematographer, musician and human Being who inspired us with his love of beauty, music, friendship and family. I’m eternally grateful for the times we got to share together, the conversations about the creative path, playing music, and hanging out on my old sailboat. I envision him jamming in the great concert halls of the universe now with his mentor Ravi Shankar and friend and soul-brother George Harrison. Alan was and is one of those friends who broadened your perspective of life and it’s beauty, showing us more of what’s possible with this precious human life we have. Thank you Alan, you will be cherished, missed and remembered always 💛✨🎶#rip #inlovingmemory
Rest In Peace Alan Kozlowski.
May your legend live on thru your incredible work, cheers to your wonderful spirit. I could never find the words to thank you enough for allowing me to release my EP in your home, these moments you captured from it will always remain so special to me. Thank you still doesn’t cover it 💛🌼🕊 My heart aches for my Cali fam today, extending love and comfort to the Kozlowski’s and all who knew Alan today and forever.
We just heard this morning that our beloved friend, artist, mentor and musician Alan Kozlowski has passed on. All those who knew him will probably agree that he was a rare, hugely soulful and spiritual being – always so full of love and warmth and kindness. Always. So so loved by so so many people in Santa Barbara and elsewhere. He was kind of like the tallest Redwood in our little forest. Always supporting and participating in our local music scene and taking us to spiritual places. Even just by his presence. His home was a regular gathering place for spontaneous after hours jams and he brought his wonderful friends to our humble shop for music and merry making and story telling events when we had his spiritually-enriching photography all over our walls. He invited his dear friends like Jeff Bridges, Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald, Jeff Postell, Erich Reidl, Johnny Irion and others to come to our stage and jam. And they all came because they Love him. Our friend David Wexler introduced us to Alan and he said today that he’s probably jamming with his dear friends Ravi Shankar and George Harrison now. Probably so. He will be wildly missed. Thanks for all your blessings, Alan.
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
