PROBABLE AND DEFINITE AS TO THE ARRIVAL OF GURU
MAHARAJ JI. HIS DECISION CAN BE SWAYED TO UNLIKELY

AMERICA. BEING SO FEW IN NUMBER, WE
MUST WORK UNCEASINGLY TO DRAW HIM HERE, FOR ONLY SERVICE AND
GREAT LOVE PLEASE THE LORD. IT HAS BEEN ALMOST A 
YEAR SINCE THE OLDER PREMIES SAW MAHARAJ JI, AND
FOR THOSE WITHOUT DARSHAN THEIR EXPERIENCE OF THE

MINERS SPEND FAR MORE TIME PUSHING THEMSELVES ON

OURSELVES, BUT OUT OF SHEER COMPASSION, THE PRICELESS
ETERNAL JEWEL OF CREATION. PLEASE, PLEASE
RECOGNISE WHO YOU ARE,REMEMBER WHAT YOU HAVE
RECEIVED, COUPLE YOUR LONGING WITH PERSEVERANCE
AND THE MASTER WILL COME.

          EDITORIAL

With the printing press about to be installed
one factor delays the preparation this week,
of a proper newspaper - no news!!
As evidenced by this slim issue, few people seem
willing to support an excellent opportunity for
propagation,  and the Editor is reduced to
rummaging through filing cabinets after fragments
of letters, muttering "Great Caesar's Ghost!" beneath
his breath.

Premies should be aware that the source of all talents
has been revealed to them, that all original efforts
stem from the origin, that they are capable of
writing something constructive and meaningful when
they can constantly relate back to that primordial fund
of inspiration - God's Book of Remembrance.

Koestler once defined the act of artistic creation as
the "bisociation of modes of perception" - that is,
the putting together of separate areas of knowledge to
form a novel concept. So, when one is connected
to the universal perception, when one surveys creation
from its centre, numberless events present themselves
for use and unification.

Whenever you feel the need to sing praises to the
Lord arising within you, whenever you notice a couple
of perceptive modes bisociating - stick it down on a
piece of paper and send it here!!

          MILLENIUM '73

Millenium '73 will present Guru Maharaj Ji and His
Knowledge to the world, by means of three days of
satsang, music, dance and theatre. The first day will
be entitled - "WHAT IS A PERFECT MASTER?" - and will
depict the lives of great saints down through the ages.
The second day, entitled - "THE LORD HAS COME" - will
announce to the world that the Bringer of Peace is
indeed walking on the planet. The third day will be
called - "THE WORLD ASSEMBLAGE TO SAVE HUMANITY". It
is on this day that Guru Maharaj Ji will present His
concrete program for saving the world.

Performing throughout the three days will be Bhole Ji's
Big Band, Blue Acquarius. The Divine Dance Ensemble
will present "KRISHNA LILA" - a dance-drama written
by Guru Maharaj Ji and depicting episodes in the life
of Lord Krishna. Other original works will include a
classical oratorio about the Holy Family, and a full-
length play about the life of Jesus Christ.

Guru Maharaj Ji's mother, Mata Ji, and His three
brothers will be present every day to grace the assemblage
with their Holy Discourses. And the focus of the whole
event will be the satsang of Guru Maharaj Ji Himself.
Truth seekers from every part of the earth will flock
to Houston to hear from His lips the message of universal peace.

ANOTHER DAY FLYING HIGH IN SYDNEY

The Day - 11th September, 1973. MahatmaJi arrives
from New Zealand on Qantas DC 8 at Mascot International
Terminal.
About 40 or so premies and non premies gathered at
the exit gates singing loudly the praises of Our Lord
and Saviour, Guru Maharaj Ji, and waiting patiently
to see our beloved MahatmaJi once again. This time
it was only to be for a short two hours before he
left for Brisbane.
It took quite some time for David and Mahatma Ji to
get through Customs - "Who's this Guru Maharaj Ji then?"
After several minutes of satsang our Customs friend was
joined by yet another Customs man, and then they said -
"What's this film then?" It was of course our beautiful
Darshan movie "Satguru Has Come", and after more
explanations and smiles Mahatma Ji and David were
finally cleared, only to be refused exit through the
gateway where the beaming devotees were singing their
hearts out. Mahatma Ji said - "They try to hide Divine
Light, but how can they hide Divine Light?"
When Mahatma Ji appeared in the adjoining gateway he
was greeted with bunches of flowers and beautiful
garlands and shining faces, and before we knew it he
was whisked away to the Ansett Terminal. A question
and answer satsang ensued in the nearby park in beautiful
sunny conditions, and everyone shared in a wonderful
two hours of bliss and prasad, until it was time for
Mahatma Ji to fly away.
Mahatma Ji was so beautiful playing with baby Miles and

baby Jyoti, and telling us how wonderful this Golden
Age is - that little children get the most joyous
gift to sit in the lap of a Saint.
ALL GLORY TO OUR LORD SHRI GURU MAHARAJ JI!
- Sydney Correspondent on the scene!

NEWCASTLE PROPAGATION

On Saturday, 8th September, fourteen premies from
Sydney descended on sleepy Newcastle to help our three
Newcastle sisters tell people there that peace is
possible, and that someone is here to show us how to
find it.

Our arrival coincided with the city's Mattara Festival,
which was held in the main park. So, in the midst of
weird machines flinging people around, the blissful
message of Guru Maharaj Ji was spread. Many leaflets
were distributed and many people heard satsang, for the
first time.
We returned to home base, (the	premies' house), for
dinner and a rest before returning to the festival.
Guru Maharaj Ji was right there with us, and everyone
could feel His presence. Joan picked up a guitar,
everyone sang, and satsang began to flow. The feeling
of peace, love and harmony was overwhelming, and time
had no meaning.	We all knew the beautiful feeling of
unity that ccmes from serving with our brothers
and sisters.
Back to the park for more propagation - the place
looked even more unreal at night. However, many people
were interested in our message, and we were invited to
a coffee bar later that evening. A couple of blissful
hours were spent there giving satsang in a friendly

amosphere. People generally were so open.

The next day was swpent plastering Newcastle with posters
advertising Mahatma Ji's programme the following weekend.
Very few pastable places escaped decoration! Soon
everyone in Newcastle will have heard of Guru Maharaj Ji
and hopefully, by His Grace, many will come to hear Mahatma Ji.
Maybe other weekend excursions to coastal and country
centres can be arranged. This is really a most impor-
tant service. Everyone must know the Lord is here!!

Jai Satchitanand!

ANTIPODEAN CRUSADE


In Australasia, the circle of fall-out from the global
peace bomb continues to expand with divine energy.
We have been blessed with the presence of Mahatma
Padarthanand for two months now, and in that time he
has toured Australia twice and also brought "love,
light and Knowledge" to New Zealand for the first time.

After making, a first circle of the established ashrams
in Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Brisbane
in order to bring Knowledge to the thirsty ones who
had waited for up to ten months, Mahatma Ji began a second
tour. This time he also took in the newly-opened
centres in Perth, Western Australia, and Hobart, Tasmania.
In these somewhat isolated cities, it was cheering to see
news of Guru Maharaj Ji's presence first baffling, then
intriguing and finally winning over the hearts of sincere
seekers.

In Perth the propagation was mainly through already
established religious and yogic groups and societies,
and it was Amazing Grace to see the harmony of Love

prevail over so many different opinions and practices.
In Hobart, a younger, more political audience was
reached through the university, and conducted a very
stern inquisition into Divine Light Mission's role in
society. But under the impartial sun of Truth, even
the fiercest critic found his preconceptions melting
away.

This second tour covered nearly seven thousand miles
and 24 consecutive daily programs and by its finish
the number of premies in Australia had more than
doubled. Then only one program in headquarters, Sydney,
and it was off again, across the Tasman Sae to New
Zealand for a week.

The ashram in Auckland on the North Island, was
started by a brother and a sister who had travelled
independently from England to New Zealand in order to
propagate in their native country. It has recently
been strengthened by the injection of five premies,
also New Zealand born, who had been living and serving
in Australia. At the same time three premies also
inaugurated a centre in Christchurch, the main city
of the South Island.

New Zealand is uniquely situated far from disturbing
contact with over-populated and over-industrial societies,
and retains therefore a measure cf external tranquillity,
which is characterised by the openness of most inhabi-
tants. It is refreshing to discover television and
newspaper people who aren't hard-boiled, know-it-all
cynics. The media-men in New Zealand, for the most
part, came genuinely interested in discovering the
truth and reporting it.	mahatma Ji was interviewed on
two television programs, and in one a long clip from
"Satguru Has Come" was shown. It was amazing too, to
hear a radio reporter announce on the air that from

his own experience and observation, any story about
Divine Light Mission being; worldly organisation was
sheer uninformed prejudice. Whether or not one
believed in the sanctity of Guru Maharaj Ji, His
followers are totally convinced, sincere people.

After six days of blissful propagation in such a
receptive environment, Mahatma Ji flew back to Australia
to finish his tour around the continent by visiting
Queensland. Now there are premies in every State of
Australia and New Zealand Dropagating hard for the
one thing which we lack: the presence of the Lord.
Surely He will hear the cries of His children here
and through His divine Darshan inspire us to make the
heavenly pilgrimage to Millennium '73.

0 my heart! let us go to that country where dwells
the Beloved, the ravisher of my heart!
There Love is filling her pitcher from the well, yet
she has no rope wherewith to draw water;
There the clouds do not cover the sky, yet the rain
falls down in gentle showers:

0 bodiless one! do not sit on your doorstep; go
forth and bathe yourself in that rain!
There it is ever moonlight and never dark; and who
speaks of one sun only? that land is illuminate
with the rays of a million suns.
-- Kabir.
