converses with D. K. Nanavati (left) and D. C. Gami (right).
Lokanatha has stopped at the University on his one man mission-
ary tour of the U.S.
MISSION TO U.S.:
World Spiritual Hunger
Noted by Buddhist Monk,
"For years 'missionaries have
been sent to Burma from the U.S.
and now Burma is reciprocating
the kindness," the Venerable Lo-
kanatha, Buddhist monk re-
marked at an informal talk at
the Student Religious Association
coffee hour yesterday.
"The world suffers from spiri-
tual starvation," he said. "I have
come to the United States to pave
the way for the teaching of Bud-
dhism and to further the cause of
tolerance through understanding.
THE VENERABLE Lokanatha,
dressed in his gold monk's robe,
symbolic of ripeness and maturity
explained his conversion to Bud-
"The Buddhist scriptures,
changed the entire course of my
life. I was born a Roman Cath-
olic, in Italy. It was while I
was studying at Columbia Uni-
versity that I decided to for-
sake the world. for perfection."
"My first objective was to get to
the Buddhist religious center in
Burma," Lokanatha explained.
But that was no easy matter.

IN ORDER TO obtain a pass-
port and overcome the objections

decided to devote my life explain-

"I LEFT THE monastery with
80 monks and started on my first
marching expedition through
Burma." Enthusiasts flocked to
join the marching monks and soon
the expedition numbered 227.
Lokanatha's next mission was
in Siam." We walked through
the wildest jungles with only
the weapon of loving kindness
to protect us."
The monks made plans for sub-
sequent expeditions through Eu-
rope and America. "These plans
were curtailed by the war but now
we have begun our mission to
