It was just three weeks ago I met Banthe. We talked about his latest writings about Islam, about the EBU congress 1991 in Berlin, Ole Nydal, Ayya Khema, and he even remembered when he did the Shrine dedication ceremony for our little group in Dusseldorf, Germany. This was 2007 when this photo was taken.
At the end of your chat there was a knock at the door. I stood up and said “You have a tight time schedule!” And Banthe smiled and said: “Yes, but I like meeting Order Members.”
I planned to write to him and tell him about the Admiral’s bridge in Berlin. This was the place where he stood in 1991 and wished we should have a centre in Berlin. And I planned to visit him as often as possible. I never thought I would miss him so much.
