Prem Rawat (Maharaji) - 1972 Press Articles

There are 47 newspaper articles about Prem Rawat posted here from 1972 when Rawat was 15 years old. As a tiny new cult / spiritual group Divine Light Mission was struggling to get any newspaper publicity. News stories began once chartered jumbo jets of Western devotees began flying to India for festivals. Publicity increased once Prem Rawat began to stoke controversy.

At first there was no thought of being restrained in advertising - it was "tell it like it is!"

The beginnings of publicity came with the "jumbo jet" flights to India of devotees.

The first controversial story was about the smuggling of watches, jewellery and money into India.
