Punya spent her formative years in Italy and Switzerland and met the Indian mystic Osho (then known as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh) in 1974. She lived for many years in his communes – Pune, India; Oregon, USA; and then again in Pune. She was also involved in Osho’s meditation centres in Milan, Geneva, Zurich, and Edinburgh. Her work ‘in the world’ has mostly involved design, publishing, languages (she speaks four) and advertising.
She now runs the successful online magazine Osho News, and lives on the island of Corfu, Greece, and the UK.
