Rio Next Stop in Bhagwan's Odyssey

United Press International

Guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh left Uruguay on Friday for Rio de Janeiro, the seventh stop on his international odyssey since he was forced to leave the United States.

An official in the international airport in Carrasco, Uruguay, said a private plane carrying the guru and his entourage departed Friday morning for Brazil.

Rajneesh, who has been been circling the globe in search of a permanent home, stayed in Uruguay only 36 hours.

The self-proclaimed "rich man's guru," he began his odyssey in November, when he pleaded guilty to violating U.S. immigration laws and agreed to leave the country for at least five years.
