The Desecration of Mr. Gurdjieff’s Father’s Grave

William Patrick Patterson set out on a spiritual pilgrimage to Gyumri, Armenia, to visit, as Mr. Gurdjieff asked, the grave of his father, Ashokh Adash. Finding the grave in disrepair, Patterson had it beautified. However, within weeks the gravesite was desecrated, its prayer plaques removed, and so it remains today.

Narrated and directed by Mary Ellen Korman, author of A Woman’s Work with Gurdjieff, Ramana Maharshi, Krishnamurti, Anandamayi Ma & Pak Subuh.
