Subhuti Anand Waight

Subhuti Anand Waight is a former UK political reporter who, in the early 1970s, worked as a Lobby Correspondent in the Houses of Parliament for The Birmingham Post, which in those days was a daily morning newspaper, serving the business community of the West Midlands. In 1976, Subhuti went to India to meet Osho, the controversial mystic, then known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. He gave up his job in London and lived in Osho’s ashram, learning meditation and working mainly in the mystic’s press office. During this time, he met India’s Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, and also toured the country with the Rajneesh Shakespeare Company. In 1981, he went to the USA with Osho to create 'Rancho Rajneesh' on a huge 64,000 acre ranch in Oregon, building houses, driving trucks and founding a newspaper called The Rajneesh Times. He broke the news story about Osho's ever-growing collection of Rolls Royces and also met President Ronald Reagan in the White House. Subhuti returned to India in 1987 and lived with Osho at the Pune ashram until the mystic died in 1990. Subhuti now lives mainly in Europe, but visits India every year to pay homage to the country he loves.
