Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 million follow teen-aged Guru By MELV1N MADDOCKS Christian Science Monitor Shri Guru Maharaj Ji is a slightly chubby teen-ager with slicked down hair, starched white shirts, and gray business suits whose trousers have been known to conceal western-stylf boots. He is said to own three airplanes, a television and ra- dio station, and his own IBM computer. Last month he bought a Mercedes 600, com- plete with refrigerator, for S50.- 000, and the same model own- ed by three of the Beatles. His chauffeur will have to drive it: the Guru will not be 16 until next December. Besides being quite possibly the richest teen-ager in the world, Shri Guru Maharaj Ji is the leader of a cult known as the Divine Light Mission, with headquarters (lots of marfa'e. chandeliers, and wall-to-wall carpets) in Delhi and an esti- mated 4 million followers in 63 countries, not the least of which is the United States. What does the Guru, the "Perfect have to offer Americans? His message runs like this: "everybody lacks something. Everybody's looking for something. Do you know what people are really looking for? Do you know the aim of life? Satisfaction of mind. Jhe mind is circling, circling kind of freaking out looking for this thing, peace, this some- thing beyond words, beyond hu- man comprehension, the ulti- mate goal, the ultimate truth. All the time this infinite en- ergy is inside yourself. I've realized it inside myself. I re- veal this knowledge to others." Not perfectly clear? Well, the Perfect Master has an ex- planation for that, too: "Man can only speak in finite terms, this knowledge is infinite." Oc- casionally these finite terms will become as finite slang and the Guru will cry: 'That's for sure." Youth UNICEF films to be shown Mrs. D. J. A. Lynagh, chairman of the local UNICEF committee, presented two 20-minute colored films entitled village on Stilts and The Paper Kite, to chief librar- ian George Dew this week. A generous donation from Mayor Andy Anderson has pro- vided these films which were prepared to acquaint students with the help UNICEF pro- vides in needy areas. LEISTER'S MUSIC LTD. Campus Corner warv of children's interest in modern Pied Piper By PENNY RUSSELL Kate Andrews, Coaldals Edi'Canada: j'etais la! A trip which one is selected out of many people for, is often more special than just an ordinary vacation. The same was true for the Educanada trip which I participated in just a few weeks ago. It was special. Educanada, an annual sum- mer program, is designed for Grade 10 students across Can- ada. The program is funded by the Carlton Board of Education in co-operation with the federal government. At a.m., July 15, we boarded the jet plane in Cai- gary on our way to Ottawa. We flew at night, and though many told us there wouldn't be much to see. I found there was enough to think about and see during that plane trip to make It memorable. We were met at the airport 5n Ottawa by some of the Edu- canada staff, packed into a bus, and herded off to our "home base" for the week to come. Home base turned out to be the Gloucester High School in Ottawa. We were then paired off in to two's according to our sexes and sent to our respec- tive dormitories to unpack. (h It was amazing the variety of Canadians we met. It was prob- able if not more so, to meet someone from Newfoundland instead of Alberta. The basic greeting for nearly the entire duration of my trip was to the effect of: ''Hello there, what's the country like in your The trip was a great success to everyone. We did almost ev- erything we planned to and even things we didn't. We tour- ed the Parliament Buildings, went on scenic bus tours and boat rides down the Ottawa River, had picnics, and saw the changing of the guard. Important people came and talked to us: we had. discussion groups; and listened to folk singers. We went to Upper Can- ada and visited the Eisenhower Lock. Robert Moses Dam and the St. Lawrence Seaway. the Supreme Court, National Film Board and Art Gallery, and the Museum of Science and Technology open- ed their doors to us. There were trips to Montreal where we saw the Notre Dame Cathedral. The final trip before we boarded our plane home was to a French rock concert. There, through the loud music, biting mosquitoes, and wet grass, one could contemplate and re- view the trip in their misiis. When at last the time came for saying good-bye and board- ing the plane, it is needless to say there were many who could turn away and even a few, me included, who nearlv cried. For those who went on the trip, Educanada proved to be very special. STRATFORD. Ont. fCP) A modern Pied Piper has been attracting children with his music as he plods his way on a 300-mile trip by foot through southwestern Ontario. But this modern Pied Piper is not leading the children away, as did the piper in the ancient fairy tale. The Pied Piper, Wayne Col- lins, 24. of Toronto, has dis- covered that his impromptu compositions attract children, particularly in rural areas, and apprehensive mothers who hurry out to make cer- tain the children are sate. find themselves listening to his flute. He said he enjoys making up litfle tunes as hs walks- he is not a hitch-hiker much to the surprise of some motor- ists who have offered a lift and he even tries composing words for his tunes. HAS HEAVY GEAR A man with 150 pounds of gear who can produce music is such an oddity that chil- dren in farm areas run to the road to listen to him. He frequently stops to put on musical shows for the chil- dren. That's when the mothers appear. They show concern about this stranger who is evidently taking an interest in children. D ascribing him as an "odd- ity'' may not be a true de- scription. But even he admits that the situation is unusual when a man plodding along on foot spends his time toot- ing on his bamboo flute in- stead of lifting his thumb for a ride. Hs averages 15 miles a day, he said. NT. Collins graduated from University of Waterloo with a a degree in history but de- cided to try his his hiking when his last job was finished. There's one commodation. Residents in urban areas look askance at a man weigh- ted down by a pack, bedroll and an assortment of pots and pans dangling from his belt. Today's hostels are 50 miles apart, convenient for cyclists or hitch-hikers. He had planned to make the trip by bicycle, but somebody stole his bike, he said. In between living-off-the- land meals, he manages a restaurant dinner about three times a week, just to keep go- ing.
