Silence The Ocean In 1987 Narayan handed over his job as director of the Rishi Valley Education Center to Dr. 53 He remained principal of the school till 1988, when he took a year’s sabbatical to travel and to prepare for retirement. That year he visited England, the United States, Thailand, and Japan as a guest of Mr. S. Takahashi. , he was requested to open the now-famous inaugural biannual dialogues at Ojai. In Japan he met with Buddhist scholars. In 1989 he decided to move from Rishi Valley to Vasanta Vihar, where he planned to stay and help the Krishnamurti Study Center and the educational work of the KFI.

The Krishnamurti Foundations sent their condolences to G. Sarada and to Natasha. An obituary appeared in a local newspaper. Obituaries appeared in the KFI Bulletin and the Newsletter of the KFA. As this news reached many parts of the world, he was deeply mourned by relatives, friends, and his students. Narayan has passed into a realm about which we know little, but about which he meditated a good deal. It is a blessing to have been given the opportunity to edit this little book about one steadfast student of the teachings of Krishnamurti.

In early 1990 he became ill and went to Bangalore to stay with his sister Sanjeevi. He was treated as an outpatient for mild clinical depression by doctors at the National Institute of Mental Health Sciences. He stayed with his mother and his sister Indira in Bangalore till the end of 1990 and appeared fine. I spent three happy months with Narayan going for walks and talking about Krishnaji and the teachings. Again in early 1991 he had an attack of depression and had to go for a new mode of treatment.
