|Ocotober 2009: Published memoir of my time in the cult Without The Guru
Jan 2001 - now: Active on online forum of ex-premies.
August 2001: Attended my last event with Maharaji at Nottingham, England. Final break with the cult.
Jan 2001: First posted publicly on ex-premie Forum.
1998 to 2000: Became increasingly disillusioned with Maharaji and his Knowledge, but held on to my faith in him in face of obvious inconsistencies and mounting discomfort with the whole setup.
1992 to 1998: Excluded from Maharaji personally, and had no major service. Last spoke to Maharaji personally backstage at Atlantic City event in 1998.
1986 to 1991: Traveled Britain as instructor, and went to many Rejoices (Knowledge review events Maharaji held all over the world), and instructor conferences. Spent considerable time with Maharaji personally in a number of situations.
1986: Attended the first part-time instructor conference in San Antonio, Texas; became part-time instructor (the first in the UK).
1981 to 1986: Lived married life, but constantly doing service. Gave two inheritances to Maharaji.
1975 to 1981: Lived in many ashrams (Exeter, Brighton, Manchester, Leicester, Leeds, Inverness, Luton, several in London, and probably others I have forgotten about); went to all the major festivals all over the world. Did many different types of service for Maharaji (including Festival organisation for several big festivals); gave satsang often, particularly in the Palace of Peace (satsang hall in South London in the 1970's). Was community coordinator of several premie communities, and attended many conferences with Maharaji.
1973 to 1975: Wrote book In the Light of Knowledge in the Luton ashram; started under Bal Bhagwan Ji's orders (Maharaji's eldest brother - Satpal) but when finished the family had split, and any project done under Satpal's instruction was trashed!
June to August 1972: Went to Guru Puja festival in Montrose, Colorado, the first big outdoor festival.
Early 1972: Yet again Maharaji's chauffeur on his third visit to England.
1971 to early 1972: Created one of the first ashrams, in Exeter. Bought the house with my own money, and in 1973 gave the house to Maharaji.
October 1971: Maharaji's chauffeur again on his return from USA to England.
June and July 1971: Maharaji's chauffeur on his first visit to England; used the University of Exeter green minibus.
July to October 1970: Visited Maharaji in India. Stayed with him and his family in Dehra Dun; traveled extensively with Bal Bhagwan Ji (Maharaji's elder brother, now called Satpal) in East India in preparation for 'Peace Bomb' satsang November 1970.
June 1970: Got Knowledge on June 1 from Mahatma Gurucharnanand in London.
Early 1970: First told about Maharaji from Ron Geaves, an old friend from Oxford, while I was in this monastery.
1969 to early 1970: Almost a year resident and attached to a Buddhist monastery - part of the Thai Buddhapadipa temple in Hindhead, Surrey, England. Studied under the Chao Khun.
