Yesterday was the 10th anniversary of the death of Godwin Samararatana. Monday being my silent day I had the opportunity of spending time thinking about Godwin, about what he taught me, about what he was. He was the best friend I ever had, the best Dhamma friend one could have. More than anyone I have even known he lived the Dhamma, even embodied the Dhamma. As I thought about him I could actually hear his voice saying the things he used to say. It made me smile (he could be quite funny), it made me a bit teary-eyed but most of all it made me feel how lucky I was to have known him. This is a picture of him, I and some friends in Hong Kong in 1995? You can find out something about Godwin by going to www.godwin-home-page.net/ Read some of the transcripts of his talks. You might find them interesting.
