Sadly, Robert Rouse, one of the original residents of Avatar's Abode, passed away today. Robert had to leave his home of 56 years, on the Abode, last December due to illness.

At 4.20 pm on 12 February, 2014, he died in a Nambour nursing home with Brad and I, as well as Bernard, at his bedside.

Robert, Lorna and baby Rada were directed by Baba in 1958 to settle at Avatar's Abode, and Robert from then on devoted his life to caring for the property in Baba's name.

Funeral arrangements will be notified
