Yes. True Story.
A friend dubbed my stories "Nipuna's Baby Lung Stories" because he once came over and I was watching a documentary about this girl who had a heart and double lung transplant. We were really into the story and it was so heart warming and the little girl was so brave. And then she died
It's like this other story I tell of couple I met in their 50s who were at a week long workshop/retreat for couples to recommit to each other and refocus their love at the "crunchy" resort called Kalani Honua http://www.kalani.com/
We lived down the road and went to eat dinner there that night. This couple was telling me how lucky I was for the way I was raised (in temples, learning Sanskrit, etc.) and they were telling me how wonderful it was to be in Hawaii. They said they heard there was this dried up lava tube tunnel that went underground and lead to an underground hot spring where you could swim. They had heard there was a little boy who guided people down there. I told them they were talking about my brother and the tunnel was in front of my house. I told them more about it and they said they were definitely going to make a trip down there. I had to fly back to California the next day because my school vacation was over. (My family lived in Hawaii but I was living in Santa Cruz to finish high school)
My mom called me a few days later and said that while she was working on a drawing of an old yogi sitting crosslegged with his soul leaving his body through the top of his head, the older couple had made their way to the tunnel. My brother wasn't around to guide them but they had two other people with them and went down to explore. Some time later, they all came up except for the man. They called for help and a rescue team went down there to find he had crawled down a dead end tunnel and was dead, sitting cross legged with an unintentional wreath of leaves around his crown.
BTW, the friend, Mooseman, who dubbed my stories "Nipuna's Baby Lung Stories" was killed in gang crossfire in front of Ace Hardware in South Central Los Angeles while buying parts to fix his elderly neighbor's kitchen sink. He played in a band with my parents http://bhavahari.com/moose.html
