Frances Bean Cobain is the only daughter of Kurt Cobain and everyone knows who she is. Recently, she and Courtney Love recently paid homage to Kurt Cobain on the 29th anniversary of his tragic passing.
In a heartfelt and poignant message posted on an Instagram Story that has since expired(via Rolling Stone), Cobain’s only child, Frances, shared a message about the transience of life, seemingly in tribute to her late father. She also wore a gorgeous green dress in the photos as well.
Frances, who is now 30 years old, wrote the following:
“Life is like a wave crashing upon the shore, and death is like the wave returning back to the ocean, back to its most natural state.” She went on to say that she forgets where she heard this quote, but it makes her feel that loss is less daunting and more like a return to the collective consciousness of loving awareness. “Free from pain or human worry. Death serves a purpose. It is what makes life so precious, in the same way pain is purposeful because we wouldn’t know joy without it,” she added.
The message ended with a touching note about gratitude and love. Frances implored her followers to be grateful for everything in life, including loss, which she described as the ultimate teacher. She urged everyone to hold the people they love more tightly and a little bit closer, in honor of her father.
Meanwhile, Cobain’s widow, Courtney Love, also paid tribute to the late musician in her own unique way. Love, who is a practicing Buddhist, shared an image of Kurt’s hands taken by R.E.M. singer Michael Stipe. In the caption, Love expressed her love for beautiful hands and how they are the first thing she looks at in another person. She also explained that the photograph of Kurt’s hands was one of the only images that made her deeply miss him.
Love went on to talk about their shared Buddhist practice, revealing that Kurt often chanted with her and was moved by their spiritual journey. She believes that he is now in an enlightened place, far beyond the earthly realm that we inhabit. Love concluded her tribute by reciting a Buddhist chant and expressing her love and admiration for Kurt.
I love beautiful hands, it’s the first thing I look at in another. I love that the only photograph of Kurt that @michaelstipe took despite being a lover of all sorts of beauty, kudzu, @helenachristensen, river pheonix; dozens if not 100s of gorgeous photos of people he finds and sees their ‘Shen’ (a Chinese word of what’s in the eyes – loosely translated as ‘mojo’ but more about the ‘twinkle’),” she wrote alongside the black and white image of the singer/guitarists hands folded over each other across his stomach.
“But Micheal saw these hands. These left handed beautiful hands like a votive/ a mudra, a shot this singular, powerful photograph of my twin flame,” added the singer who is a longtime practicing Buddhist. “It is one of the only images (or sounds/ tastes etc) that makes me miss him deeply. But he chanted with me & often, & truly was moved by our Buddhist practice. I know he’s in an enlightened place, more so, than we here in mappo are. “The arms of a 1000 Buddhas outstretched to greet you” the gosho says. Nam myoho renge kyo dear Kurt D. C. 🙏 i & we love & miss you.”
Kurt Cobain was found dead on April 8, 1994, after taking his own life. His passing left a profound impact on the music industry and fans around the world, and his memory continues to be cherished by those who loved him.
