Jack Allanach spent fifteen years in television and public relations, culminating in his own successful PR company in Montreal. In 1973 he traveled to India and met the Indian mystic Osho in Bombay. He became his disciple and was named Swami Krishna Prem. Subsequently, he spent eleven years in Osho's spiritual community, primarily in India and a brief period in America. Initially, his work in the commune was editing and rewriting Osho books that had been translated into English by Indian editors and, as a result, were often difficult for Westerners to read and understand. The titles he rewrote include From Sex to Super-consciousness, The Perfect Way, Pointing the Way, and The Long and the Short and the All. Following this period of editing, he worked as a press officer for Osho in India and was his spokesman for Indian and Western press visitors. In 1980, Osho gave him the task to write a book about his time in the commune, which he named Osho, India and Me.
