Dayasara writes to say – “I am sorry to report that Tarabodhi died peacefully after a short bout of pneumonia in the afternoon of Tuesday October 25th aged 85. This was at the nursing home in Bath where he had lived for about 3 years. His daughter Charlotte and other family members were with him.
He was ordained in 1998 at Padmaloka. He was a devoted Amitabha practitioner and used his Order name in most situations. Before his retirement he was a pioneer music therapist. He was a creative and delightful man and continued thus despite being very frail in later times.
With metta. Dayasara”
