"Pranams a thousand times to this Divine being our beloved professor to many, Prof Dr P H Kulkarni, who came into all our lives and touched our hearts and souls continuously passing on his pearls of wisdom to us all! A giant of an ayurveda Vaidya, a true Vaidya who helped many when ailing till the very end of his life, Dynamic yet full of humility! We have lost the last of the icons of ayurveda, a true Master of Ayurveda as Maya Tiwari at our international ayurveda and yoga conference in 2006 in Australia had aptly called him the modern day Bapu of Ayurveda!

May his Atman soar way high in his heavenly abode connecting with his beloved Tai! There must be a big celebration right now in the astral realms of his home coming! We have lost a father figure! He was part of our entire family!

This photo is from our international ayurveda and yoga conference first held in Sydney in 2006 which he inspired us to organise and was our patron followed by many to come! Ahuramazda and the Great ones bless his soul and may Dr Saheb’s family Sagar Manasi and family and pavan and family Achala and family and all of us be given the strength to bear this irreplaceable loss! May he attain Garothman Behesht! The highest place in the heavenly realms!
Pranams to you our Guru! Our beloved Master!" - Farida Irani.
