He needed the cash. Lots of cash can be had by doing darshan lines.
Hurricane David. I was at DECA and the decision to evacuate came from Maharaji at the last minute. I was so exhausted that by the time we got to our hotel rooms, I crashed. But, that wasn't before we had the sermon on the mount at Kissimmee. September of '79. I had been at DECA since April.
I had no idea there had been a darshan call. When I woke up the next morning and heard about it, I was, "what, darshan when, where?" lol.
The only darshan at DECA happened when individual premies sneaked a peck at the lotus feet. He never reacted or objected. I never had the nerve to do it.
