About Swami Subhan
Subhan Schenker (Sw. Prartho Subhan) was a criminal lawyer in Baltimore, Maryland. In 1979, he quit his practice and went to Pune to meet Osho. Osho gave him sannyas, and Subhan says it was and continues to be an exquisite love affair beyond words. While there, Osho also gave him the name “Prem Chhaya” – the Shadow of Love for a meditation center. While in Pune, Subhan began a lifelong love affair with meditation.
He began an 18-month continuous practice of Dynamic every morning and he experienced many breakthroughs while there that he says changed his life forever. In 1981, he went to New Jersey and, along with a small group of disciples, lived at “The Kips Castle” with Osho.
There he had several opportunities to have close contact with Osho. In April, 1981, he was the third sannyasin on the ranch (Rajneeshpuram, Oregon). As one of Osho’s lawyers, he helped in the settlement of the purchase of the ranch, and handled many of the Commune’s legal matters. He stayed on the ranch for four and a half years, and left shortly after Osho left. He has some wonderful stories to share about these times in America.
While on the ranch, he wrote a birthday song for Osho, which became the birthday song for all the sannyasins there. He also wrote several other songs and performed at the World Celebrations for Osho and his disciples.
In 1988, he returned to Pune and stayed there until two months after Osho left the body. While he was there, he developed and led several groups, including “Finding the Work You Love, Finding the Life You Love,” and “How to Transform Tension.”
He lived in Japan from 1990 to 1995, returning several months a year to Pune to lead groups and co-direct the Osho Marketplace Network, which he created with Ma Prem Karuna. While in Japan, he wrote the popular song, “Om Shanti.”
And he and his beloved Shanti reopened the “Prem Chayya” center in Kyoto, where they became connected with many Japanese and foreign sannyasins. In 1995, he returned to Pune again, and stayed there till the end of 1997, when he returned to the U.S. He and Shanti again reopened the center in Seattle, and used the name “World of Meditation” as their business name.
The World of Meditation has now been in Seattle for the last fifteen years. It has offered hundreds of meditations, camps, workshops and events for the Pacific Northwest. He has also facilitated the workshop, “War & Peace: The Art of Relating” for the last ten years.
Subhan is a certified counselor in Washington State, and besides his counseling practice, he facilitates workshops, camps and classes there and in Mexico. His is the soon to be published author of three books: “Finding the Work You Love,” “21 Insights That Will Change Your Life,” and “Growing Up…Not Just Growing Old.”
