Tim left his body on August 6th at 3:10 pm. In the three days leading up to that moment, the family spent many hours chanting around his bedside.
I am not ready to write much, except to say that he was in in a state of bliss for many hours on the day he died, after months of a painful struggle. (And yet he said to me, “I have not suffered.”)
He was fully awake with eyes uplifted. In the final moments he was guided by his elder son Peter, chanting “AUM Guru” into his right ear, while Swamiji’s AUM recording played in the background. A full conscious exit is an enormous blessing to us all.
My friend, Sharon Taylor, was meditating in the next room and heard angelic bells ringing when he left his body.
After the family prayers, I felt his bliss and we all chanted again for an hour, participating in his astral welcoming.
We miss his presence dearly…and yet we are comforted by his blissful attainment.
Blessings and love to you all,
