Hundreds of friends and family remembered sitar maestro Ravi Shankar as an unfailingly generous teacher with a gentle spirit and sense of humor whose music fostered understanding between East and West.

Olivia Harrison said Shankar helped her late husband George Harrison achieve a more meaningful life when he was a young Beatle.

Shankar died last week in San Diego at age 92.

His wife, Sukanya Rajan, and daughters — singer Norah Jones and Grammy-nominated sitarist Anoushka Shankar — sat in the front row as speakers paid tribute.
