In loving memory of the special soul that he was, my loving wishes to you Deepesh for a light-full transition to whatever is next for you on your journey Home. Something from Hafiz for all of us -
That I can no longer call myself
With love from Daniel Cole Kaplan
Hi Krish, Thanks for the news about Deepesh. Wow! It blows my mind! We are so fragile. Deepesh was one of the most full-on energy people I ever met, and so innocent. And now he's gone! Just like that..... But I think he had a good life, and lived to the full.
Lots of love to you,
PS Baby and Mukti are fine, just two or three weeks to go now. Amazing how life comes... and goes...
Thanks for the sad news !
I worked with him in Poona 1. A beautiful guy, so sad...
Love to you
Wish Him Well on His Great Journey, Riding Higher and Higher
Harida and Nartan
He was, to this day, one of my best friends....
hola Krishna,thanks for sending me the news,
.....with deepesh we had just email last week and he said he was good and he had had a very special fullmoon with friends, very strong and nurishing experience, as always he was sending love and very happy for his plans to see her girlfriend....
so i just wanted to say hi to you and send you lots of love hope you are good and at peace....
a big hug devamani
......om mani padme om...
hope Deepesh is passing to the other side in peace....
we all love him so much...
such a good friend.
I would have loved a few more laughs and amazing good times with you here, but i guess we will meet somewhere else.
You know i love you like a brother and am sending you only best wishes on your journey.
I'm totally surprised and very touched feeling how much i love you and the beautiful moments we shared--Laxmi Villas (Poona 1)...
Roommates at the Ranch...Poona 2...Spain and Portugal...
one of my favorites you are!
Touching you through the vibes with love and awareness, Anubuddha (and Anasha is also sending all her love and energy) Friends, it's pretty surreal, no?
All my love to his friends all over the planet.
You know he was one of most beloved friends inside the Sangha...
an authentic man in every way.
And like a single drop of rain
That on still waters fall,
His life did ripples make
And touched the lives of all.
This was a very special and gentle being who has a very special place in my heart. I am forever grateful to have met him, Ritu & Nirodha, 30 years ago by the lake of Pokhara in Nepal. Something was so different about these 3 that I had to go to the ashram in Poona to check it out. The rest is history. He was so full of life, love and laughter - hard to believe he is gone.
With Love from Down Under
so much love Deepesh ... beautiful brother ...
bless you on your way sweet heart
non lo conoscevo personalmente ma il suo volto si. ha certamente avuto una vita molto intensa e fortunata (chi non lo e´avendo incontrato Osho?) ora sicuramente e´ancora piu´fortunato, navigando per spazi infiniti senza il peso del proprio corpo. lo invidio un po´........
much love sajjad
Wow deepesh, querido!
you are riding high now...
beautiful being , sweet, sweet friend
much, much love to you and all in his celebration
Just to say hello and thank you for sending this...so beautiful.

I hadn'tseen him for many years, the last time was on Ilha Grande in Brasil and we had a far out party ...
may you party with the angels now Deepesh.
Lots of love and light,
Have a great ride Depesh !!
I definately had a great one with you through the Himalayas.
Lots of love on your way.
..so much juice, so much zest, Zorba the Buddha. We miss you Deepesh. Beautiful photos...

we light a candle and picked an exquisite rose from our garden for you! tears of loss and gladness for knowing you!
Pure Joy, a radiant smile, ease and love for life embodied in one being,....
We love you always

don't feel bad to carry this duty to inform who's leaving the body among our belovedissimi friends, brothers and sisters on the path with Osho !
I remember u share this feeling of not being sure about carrying on this 'info bulletin' when we saw each other in Goa few months back ...
Actually u are doing good because it's just a way to share our great love for each other !!!
Deepesh was one of the first people I met when arrived in Pune in 1978 and he host me in his house near MG Road for a month.
I remember to go together from there to the Ashram with a bicycle and coming back in the some way ... using one of his robes few days later when I took sannyas and enjoing his beautiful smile.
I haven't seen him for so many years, but now looking at his photos, I recognize the same smile ...
Love and love and love to Deepesh, beautiful free spirit soul !!!!!!
Haven't seen Deepesh for many years, but to hear the news of his passing brought back many wonderful memories of good times spent in Poona. A gorgeous spirit who will be missed.
Light and love, peace and blessings
Thank you for the inform on Deepesh.
I also received a message from Ian (ex-Nary) about this.
Tears of love and loss even without having been with Deepesh for many years.
Always good-hearted and good company, I also hold heartfelt prayers for a (hopefully) conscious departure and journey back into the light for Deepesh.
Yet another reminder - just as Osho often said - that we are all in the same queue, it is only a question of WHEN.
So another body goes, but the love goes on as do the memories of Deepesh in the hearts of his friends.
Much love to you and sweet Meera,
I love O toons and especially death inc.
Deepesh was so alive, like Zeno, Disha, Osho, and others, And its unbelievable that any of them would ever die... And yet... Wow...He lived a full and full-on life Thank you Deepesh for being here!!!
I found a couple of photos of Deepesh that I think are beautiful, The first one is in the Kitchen at Cal Ave and the second, I took early in the morning on the first (I think it was the first) night that Deepesh and Aseysha spent together on the deck of our house in Woodacre. Maybe they could be posted. When I heard soemone say that you were thinking of not providing this service I felt sad .... it's a beautiful thing for all of us and I'm counting on you to do it for me one day.......
Big Hugs from Mullumbimby, Saul
Deepesh & Aseesha :: first night
Deepesh was a good friend and a beautiful person.
Samai and Shakta
You represent the hip Zorba the Buddha to me, full of Laughter and Light.
Fly high my friend, you will be missed but also wished well from friends around the planet. See you on the other side.
with love Rani
some pictures from our recent visit with Deepesh - April 2008
Deepesh as always was so generous, open and loving...
with love to all,

Ash & Deepesh
Your engine must be revvving ... about now.
With all the love that surrounds you, how could it be any other way!
A divine journey lovely one.
This comes as a shock as we all were just talking of him the other day saying he would be in town with us all for Queens Day! How life is so unpredictable and fragile.....
All my memories of him come up and all the beautiful times we all had together.........in so many years. It is hard to believe he is gone, so fast..........he was so strong. All the experiences he has had where he could have died and came out stronger then ever....and now this comes and he is gone.
My heart is sad that our brother is gone and I did not get to say good bye......
All my love goes out to everyone in this delicate time of letting go yet another dear friend from this world.
Peace and Love to you and All.
Thank you, dear Krishna!
What a beautiful send off from friends for Deepesh, remembered in our hearts.
Much love to you and Meera from hot Poona just now!
I do feel very grateful to you to send this bulletin around. Please keep doing it...
Love to Deepesh
"and it goes on and on and on... this sweet sweet song goes on and on and on"
I don't know Deepesh well. I remain with the sweetness and gentleness of when we met.
Hey Deepesh, have a good journey. I haven't seen you for a long while, but in my heart you are very close.
you were one of the good guys. you will be missed but have given such inspiration. bless.
Bon voyage to you Deepesh, beloved fellow traveller,love on this great journey.
We celebrate with you!
Unknown we come
Unknown we go
We are like lines
drawn on the water surface.
- Lao Tzu
I loved you from the first moment I saw you on the ranch, looking more Hopi than German, a wild, laughing man!
I am so happy we had some time as friends and even a brief moment as lovers.....
Without words or contact, my love for you goes on forever...
Ride high, beloved friend!
Lo amavo molto.
Ha preso il sannyas qualche mese dopo di me.
Ero presente all'evento.
Deepesh era bellissimo
e Aneeta (la nostra Sufi-Meditation leader) si innamoro' di lui !
Deepesh you were one of my closest friend's ever, with whom I shared so much and so deeply and with so much gusto and laughter.
Such a generous being and so adventurous.
I have had the luck of see you just a month ago after 13 years of not seeing him at your lovely place in Brazil.
I am grateful to have had the opportunity to say goodbye to you and thank you to have shared of yourself with me during our to my time here on earth.
Farewell my friend, Paritosho
Deepesh, your going away brought me to tears. I will miss your simplicity and innocence , always ready for celebration. always a real friend. thank you for being so present and for sharing in such a light, loving and beautifull way.
the following are 3 photos from the early 90s on Ilha Grande in Brasil and 1 with Bodhi in Poona (motorcycle).
Wishing You the highest ride. with Love,
Ash & Deepesh
in tears .... Deepesh ... i love you so much ....

as there is nothing more inportant than that
He was always loving and gentle with me.
and thank for keeping such a beautiful website together.
This is a real piece of living art.
Much love Shivananda
Dear Deepesh, sweet friend... I will miss you...
The memories that I have of you are so filled with sweetness and laughter... so many times cracking up together, swimming in the ocean, walking in the dark in the jungle, so many high moments all of us shared in Ilha Grande, and Pipa, and I was getting ready to see you one more time... I am still going there now, to Pipa, but the trip will have a different flavor, I am sure. Dear one, many thoughts of light, courage, trust, go your way, from my heart, deep gratitude for having shared the beauty and joy of your spirit...Divine Light of Love Eternally, dearly... sweetly, flying, disappearing like a trace in the water.
Dear Avinasha and Paritosha & Lilly,
Here are some pictures of Deepesh, you may like to see the ones of him taking Sannyas, and in energy darshan. He was much loved and photographed.
Love to you all........ash
I Miss you so much... your beauty, your sweetness and love...
lots of love
Deepesh, sweet friend, i learned a lot with your death, i still see your smily face around ,i was reading the Bardho to you and on the 8th day i had a feeling to stop it. it was time to pack and live the country side. we looked for Taisa's shoe everywhere and could not find it, everyone gave up looking for it and misteriously it appeared next to the other pair as if it had been there all the time. Nobody did put it there, i tought, mischievious Deepesh...
When i read Tiz beautifull coments about their conection i was telling my daughter Taisa about Deepesh showing up in a calango's body, she cracked up so hard and we scremead yahoo inside the car, them Rashnu pointed outside and for our astonishing surprise, there was a calango type on the helmet of a motorcicle rider, next to us on the intersection stop light. The guy gave us a look not knowing what was over his head, them he took off and the calango slided moving his body...
Taisa went on craking up saying she will be a dolphing...
Deepesh, i had so much tears of saudade and joy of having been friends with you, you always cared about your friends all over, we waited for your visit in Barcelona, even if for few hours to hear your best stories and be transported to Tibet. When you had the accident last summer i taught you survived another one, but a king of light of love wouldn't dye but of a heart attack.
I apreciate the way you lived your life full on celebrating mood, you carried your joy around, you shared the best of you with us, i bow down to you, wise man!
Lots of love to you all Devo, Taisa and Rashnu
What a big shock to hear the news. What many beautiful memories connected with that gorgeous guy. We came to Poona around the same time , later shared a room in San Francisco and drove taxi at night , cut trees on Mevlana Road .... -many good and crazy times.
I wish you well Deepesh
Purnam now in Nevada City ,California
Just wanted to send a mail of support for your website and the way you cover sannyasins' departures. It's great and we do want to know, NEED to know... We are all so far flung, and for so long.
I saw Deepesh after years of absence this time last year in the mountains (Himalayas). He was there with Ash all set to do their motor cycle tour. A beautiful spirited guy...
Lots of love to you, Savita
Dear Ritu I hope you can read this message.
Amaresh's mother (my mother in law) called me from Munich and told me about Deepesh's departure. The first thing I thought is that now he's laughing and celebrating with Amaresh... wherever they are... truly a part of them is in our hearts for ever. Thanks for all those pictures... they are a testimony of love and joy. That is the most beautiful gift our beloved Osho has given us... the capacity to live moment to moment, celebrating existence. Deepesh was a clear role model of that...
Thanks Veetman for passing this message.
My friend Sakshi just sent it from Munich.
I love you all my beautiful family of light.
Sending love... Pratito
we havent met this lifetime eye to eye and I find you here in our friends familiy forum and read you have left the body in Osho Times.
I feel your strong relaxed male side and the sweet.
Not knowing nothing,
we are one anyway.
Melting in love,
In you and out Raji
Deepesh Thank You ... I remember your easy smile and ability to remove any conflict with the gesture of grace and friendship ...
I go forward with what is your parting gift
... The Luminous, intelliegence of adventure,
and being ...
Sw. Satyaprem ...
Ciao Deepesh thanks for all the fun during wild soccer games at the ranch, all the adventures in San Francisco
all the great moments in Sangam, France
My beautiful rebel, my sweet friend
you've always been so light and gentle, so easy...so loving...
I 'll keep in my heart forever your very special presence
Bon voyage!! Shakta
Dear Erwin and Angela, cc dear Krishna&Ritu
First of all we're all FINE & enjoying a lovely time together in Zanskar.
many memory's of Deepesh along our way up here in the boedhist heart of the wonderfull Himalya's:-) very good feeling to drive all the way on Deepesh' bike together with Kay close on the buddyseat, really special and sure Deepesh would have loved this idea that we make this tour all together with Deepesh in our hearts:-)
on several beautifull places on the top of the mountains, in the snowy cold rivers and just in the blowing wind we spread out some of Deepesh'ashes together and other moments we lighted up some candles in few of the many mistical monastery's around here
one very exciting moment, Kay gonna tell U more about it later, when she found the very seldom flower 'blu poppy', wich Deepesh told about many times as he really loved that flower but only saw it 'once'.. It was just waiting for us on the highest pass here in Zanskar and so beautifull on the way down -just were Deepesh exact a year ago told me his experience about the 'blue poppy'- we saw even several more of these beautifull flowers, just felt like they were there to accompany&welcome us:-)
another moment to chearup our feelings was the story of Karin, as dentist she did some dentical work for Deepesh and guess what she found in her hand by spreading out Deepesh'ashes..it was the 'crown' she placed in Deepesh mouth last year..amizing&wonderfull to feel that Deepesh is still around in this special way:-)
just wanted to share our feelings for the moment AND ALSO LET YOU KNOW >>that tomorrowmorning on 10 o'clock(Indiatime) we gonna share a special PUJA(=ceremonial praying together with many monks, similar like a holy mis) in the lovely monastery of Stongdey high on a mountaintop, let us TOGETHER connect with our beloved Deepesh:-)))
