Sharif I. Horthy was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1941. He studied
physics at Oxford and civil engineering at Imperial College, London. In his mid-twenties
he moved to Indonesia, where he worked as a consulting engineer and ran a construction
company. In his spare time he was personal assistant and interpreter to
Bapak Subuh Sumohadiwidjojo, the founder of Subud.
After 22 years in Indonesia, he moved to the USA and then to England, where he
manages the Guerrand-Hermés Foundation for Peace. Sharif lives in Lewes, East Sussex
with his Javanese second wife, Tuti, with whom he is gradually translating Bapak Subuh’s
works into English.
