Announcenment: genkaku Adam Fisher

Hello and greetings to everyone here.

I used to post on these forums as Floating_Abu but no longer can remember my log in details.

I am writing to post an announcement regarding genkaku, who used to be a long term poster here:
https://newbuddhist.com/profile/genkaku

I noticed that genkaku's son, Angus, announced on genkaku's blog that genkaku died peacefully in his sleep on Feb 19.

The family have also set up a GoFundMe for funeral expenses.

I thought that some of you who knew him might want to know.

Gassho and good wishes to everyone here.

    Saddened to hear this. I knew Adam from way back and had great respect for him as a practitioner and as a person. I knew he had health problems, but this has still come as a shock.
    My thoughts are with his family.
    May he know Great Peace.

    Sad news, he will be missed. I remember him as a pretty down-to-earth contributor, maybe even salty. I liked him, although I didn’t know him well.

  • May wholesome karma be with you on your journey...genkaku

    To be Continued, no doubt.
    I remember him with nothing but fondness, and his favourite phrase...Just noodling.
    I hope he finds something useful here, or wherever he may be.
    Peace to his family, love to all.

    Outstanding. <3
    A good death. Is there any better way to die? Possibly peacefully whilst awake.

    Death as a great bardo or transition is a wonderful teaching.

    Thanks @genkaku, keep up the good work ...

    Adam was diagnosed with an aneurism some time ago. He didnt share the details but I think he decided against any intervention. Because of his lifelong practice of developing awareness ( he would have jibbed at that description🙂) he was no doubt able to use the situation as a skillful means..
    From Angus’s portrayal of Adams passing I would guess that he died with it rather than from it.

    The archive of his writings is a wonderful treasure trove of wisdom, humour and sheer good sense..👍
    And as a bonus he was such a good writer...those things don’t always go together. I frequently chuckle at his brio and style. He was cool, Adam was. Or to borrow the tongue- in -cheek spelling he often used, he was kewl.😊
