A Millennium Invitation to the Press

Divine Light Mission wishes to invite you to Millennium '73.

Please present your credentials at the press desk in the Astrohall and you will be issued the necessary press passes. An early bird press reception will be held in the press room of the Astrohall on the morning of November 7th from 10:30 a.m. to noon. On the mornings of November 8th, 9th, and 10th, the press reception will be in the Astrohall at 9:30 a.m. We will serve you coffee and sweet rolls and at this time you will have a chance to meet with everyone on our public relations and press staff. At this time we will answer all of your questions and try to set up interviews with Guru Maharaj Ji and his family.

We suggest that those of you wishing to take pictures of the festival activities take into consideration that your cameras will need special lenses for distance. Guru Maharaj Ji will be seated approximately 35 feet from the ground. Although you will be allowed in the stage area, there will be no way of getting close to him for pictures during the time he is seated in the Astrodome.

If you need to set up special equipment for television or radio, please address all of your requests to Miss Diana Stone before November 5th. Miss Stone or a member of our public relations staff will take care of all requests for materials and special equipment on a first come first serve basis.

The usual press room with telephones and typewriters will, of course, be available to you.

You may book your own rooms at the Warwick, Hyatt Regency, and Sheraton Hotels. Should the hotels refer you to the Divine Light Mission please contact Carol Boure at (713) 526-7201 for further information.
