|"Shunyan" as his disciples call him.|
Wednesday, May 30, 2012
My visit to this Ashram on 29th may 2012 was a spiritual experience. The Ashram is at the shore of Muvattupuzha river[ Kerala, India] I sat for about two hours with him sharing our spiritual expereinces. The boats passed by on the calm surface of the river in the same way as words and thoughts passed by the silence within me. His real name is Babu Paul. He tlod me that some one gave him the name "Shunyan". When one empties himself he becomes a "Shunyan"

|Fr Narciso Mendiburu|
Just now I received the news that Fr. Narciso Mendiburu has expired. [ 18th May 2012- in Spain ]
After our arrival in Pamplona he experienced a slight improvement. But he had a sudden collapse and was taken to the clinic. Apparently he had a blood clot in the brain. He got worse in the clinic and early in the morning I got the news that he had expired. The Superior of the Community has offered me the chance of officiating at the funeral, .I have gladly accepted the invitation.
I must say that the whole community has accompanied Mendiburu all the time he has been here. He was visited everyday in the clinic and the nurse from the community was continuously at his service. Everyday he had visitors in the clinic,though he could not talk.he expressed his appreciation to the visitors by crying..
Gujarat is, of course, all the time in my thoughts. Best wishes to those around. Sincerely and gratefully
