Sir Gerald took Elvis to the Self-Realization Center overlooking Pasadena. It should be noted that while Larry Geller had long since been banished and Elvis burned many of his religious texts shortly after his marriage to Priscilla four years before, he had never abandoned his spiritual search, and there were numerous indications over the years of his sustained spiritual commitment. His renewed contact with Sri Daya Mata was remarked upon in a somewhat confused way in a Rona Barrett column in September.
