Nirvan - Teacher to many of the K.I.D.S. over the years

The son of one of the founders of the BBC and a russian princess, he was a fighter pilot in the second world war, a farmer in South Africa, a carpenter, musical instrument maker, a journalist, a teacher.... he loved the kids and teaching.

Most important was for him the spiritual. He was a follower of Gurdjieff's in the fourties, and became Osho's sanyassin in the seventies. He worked for many years with a Zen master, and we had a last discussion saturday (about Zen, of course). He knew that he would not last much longer, and prepared himself for his death. Yesterday (8. Feb.) he was taken to hospital, he refused to have his life prolonged artificially, and he died in the night, about 11:30. Kept his dignity to the end..
