Devapriya: lover of the gods

My good friend and teacher died today. His name was Devapriya.

I don’t know what to say about him. It would take a long time to explain exactly how special this guy was, and I don’t feel it’s for me to splash his life all over the internet.

We’ve lost a great teacher today, though I’m glad his pain has ended. I shall miss him.

At Archway station today, when I was leaving his house, I saw a ‘quote of the day’ written on a London Transport noticeboard (it usually says things like ‘Good service on the Northern line’).

It said, “May you live all the days of your life.”

He would’ve liked that. I wouldn’t put it past him to have arranged it in anticipation of this day!

Go well my friend. See you down the line.

With love, with thanks, and with great respect.

Padma
