Prem Rawat (Maharaji) - 1977 Press Articles

In 1977 DLM was trying to avoid any publicity for Prem Rawat while he regained control of DLM and the premies after Bob Mishler's unwanted changes of 1976. DLM tried to avoid publicity but they were mentioned in all the thoughtful background pieces on cults published that year.

Prem Rawat becomes a US citizen.

In Argentina, DLM was one of 3 cults banned. 87 premies were arrested on drug charges.

In Winnipeg those humble, stolid premies continued their advertising, though God was no longer mentioned.

The "Palace of Peace" was now too big for the dwindling DLM so it went under the hammer.
