…left his body in 2011.

Recently Samya scanned in some photos from the old days. Among those was also a photo of Upasaka and Mega told us that he had died in 2011.

Many first met him in Pune in the mid 70’s, then again saw him there in the mid 80’s. In Rajneeshpuram he was a hairdresser in Chiyono. In order to hide his tattoos (which at that time were not in fashion as they are now) he used to wear shirts with long sleeves, also on very hot days. Reason why he was affectionately called Sleeves…

Last we heard was that he was a successful hairdresser in Maui. He had been suffering from depression and took his life.
