Friends and family said their goodbyes to Tom Petty on October 16 at Pacific Palisades’ Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine.

The grounds were closed to the public so those dear to Petty could honor the life of the late rocker at the shrine, temple, and meditation garden—the place where fellow Traveling Wilburys bandmate George Harrison’s funeral was held in 2001.

But for those who weren’t present, Petty’s 35-year-old daughter, AnnaKim Violette Petty, shared several photos from the private service, including an image of the Golden Lotus Archway, which stands over a portion of Mahatma Gandhi’s ashes.

The dark of the sun we will stand together--
