1973 Magazine Articles About Prem Rawat

Research by Stephen A. Kent, published in "From Slogans To Mantras" has revealed the extent of the hostility to Prem Rawat in the 1970's underground press. It was to the counter-culture readers that most of the proselytisation was going on and they had a much greater knowledge of the methods, success and results of the practice of "Knowledge". It was particularly appropriate that the Fifth Estate was so vitriolic in this short piece as it was their reporter, Pat Halley, who was nearly murdered by Mahatma Fakiranand for the shaving cream pie incident in the following year.
