What was so special about Godwin was that he lived what he taught – his teaching and his life were seamless. He had the marvellous ability to put the teachings of the Buddha concerning suffering and the way out of suffering into his own simple words which were relevant to the everyday lives and experience of the people he was speaking to, both Buddhist and non-Buddihist.
Godwin’s deepest concern was to help people free themselves from their suffering, and having realised the fruits of the Buddha’s teaching himself, he brought a great depth of wisdom and compassion to his explorations of the Dhamma with others. He also evinced a lightless, humour, and sense of the absurd, as much in his talks as in his day-to-day life.
