Today in The Times you can read an obituary for Bhante, which finishes with this little story.

When a doctor gave him a long and convoluted explanation as to why he was going to stop treating him for sepsis, the monk interrupted him: “You mean I’m dying?” The doctor nodded. Sangharakshita looked thoughtfully at the pile of audiobooks that had just been stacked by his bed. He smiled and said: “You had better put those back.”

Thanks for that Munisha. Do you have any idea of who wrote it? It’s a curious mixture of quite detailed in places and quite inaccurate in others…

I believe it was written by Damian Arnold.
