When I went to Maharouli ashram for a Holi festival(83), there were over 100000 premies there.
One day I went out to 'mix with the Indians so Mahraji could show Indians His Western devotees', as Micheal Donner told me to do.
Anyway, I did so and walked along way into the hundreds of tents, chatting, drinking chai etc when suddenly I was surrounded by a group of people asking me about BBJ(Satpal). They were very concerned, but I reassured them that our Prem was the real Satguru. They seemed to be heated, but then out of nowhere a bunch of wpc appeared and walked me out.
I also heard there was fighting between the factions but witnessed none.
(OT)I just remebered the same thing happened to me in 1967 or 68 when I was one of 25 Israel supporters in the middle of 2000 Arabs and Arab supporters in Trafalgar square. After a while, the police came when someone tried to shoot at us and walked us out.
I remember looking back when we were out and thought 'was that me in the middle of that'.
