Narada Agee – In Memoriam

Narada James M. Agee
January 9, 1943 – April 26, 2011

Narada AgeeNarada has lived at the Ananda Community in Lynnwood, WA since moving here from Ananda Village, CA in the Fall of 2005. Narada came to Ananda Village in 1975. His career work was that of a master electrician but he was known and loved for much more than his talents and ability to create or repair just about anything.

Narada’s love and respect for everyone he met, his vitality, creativity, and dedication to the spiritual path and to spiritual community was infectious. No one ever said to “No” to Narada’s request for help on service projects for the simple reason that he never said “No” to anyone else’s need!

Narada had a special gift and love for children and young adults. He enjoyed helping others to learn new skills, especially when offered in divine service. His smile will be long remembered for its power to open one’s heart to unconditional love he embodied.

His passing was sudden and completely unexpected. He had a long list of new projects and ongoing service needs and indeed was returning from an evening shopping at a building supplies store sale in Everett when Divine Mother took him from this earth. His departure leaves a gaping hole in service opportunities and in loving friendship to all here at Ananda in Seattle.

Rebecca Davis of the Ananda Community here in Lynnwood has compiled and edited stories and biographical facts about Narada from members and friends throughout the Ananda Communities around the world. You can read those stories at www.anandaseattle.org/narada.

Narada is survived by his wife, Dakshina Agee, who is office manager for Ananda Sangha at the Meditation Temple in Bothell.

An Astral Ascension Service was held at the Meditation Temple in Bothell the night following his departure and was attended by an overflow crowd. You can view the video here.

Blessings,

From Ananda Sangha of greater Seattle
