Marilyn Stablein marilyn stablein interviewed by doug grunther (station WDST 100.1fm woodstock, ny 2003). "in the heyday of the sixties, during a seven-year stay in the himalayas, marilyn stablein teaches herself how to not only cook a curry on a cow dung patty fire, but to master sadhu rituals like preparing chillums. Whether describing mishra's bhang lassi shop, the government hash store, her meeting with cannabis guru ganesh baba, or a trek to a cave in kashmir to view lord shiva's miraculous ice lingham, marilyn is an intrepid adventurer and thoughtful chronicler."

A couple of years later he returned to India and spent treasured time in Goa and the south of India. Somewhere along the way he gained the name Blond Peter.
