Little Rich Boy.
When called to account for the Sybaritic accouterments of
the 16-year-old "Perfect Master" Maharaji - the Maseratis,
cabin cruisers, jet-flying lessons and $ 400,000 home - a
spokesman offered the following: "The Perfect Master
life-style is in keeping with this era of science and
technology. The world is rich so he must live rich. The rich
are the real sufferers and the poors' sufferings are often
exaggerated. The guru receiving presents from his devotees
is no more different than Christ, the poor son of a
carpenter, receiving the three wise men's offerings of
frankincense, gold and myrrh".
