              The Young & The Restless actor sits down with Prestige to discuss his upcoming documentary A Man Called GOD.

Sylvia: Hello Mr. Kris, how are you today?

Kristoff St.John: It is well today. I’m in sunny California, where it’s 80 degrees and it’s a beautiful day as each day is.

Sylvia: Very good! First of all I want to say congratulations on your new documentary. Can you give us a brief synopsis about this new and controversial documentary.

Kristoff St.John: It’s a feature documentary that my family and I shot about thirty-four years ago. We went to the South of India to live in a holy man ashram. An ashram is merely a residence for someone who considers themselves holy, and the truth is, this particular man, whose name is Sathya Sai Baba, has fifty million followers globally and my family and I were just three people who were part of this organization. We went to India to shoot this documentary because we were already disciples and devotees of this man, and it didn’t take me long to figure out that this particular organization, and the man itself, the man that fifty million people call God, was shrouded with corruption, deception, a complete lack of spirituality, a very ungodly existence, for a man called God.

Sylvia: As you just stated you were fourteen years old at the time of the filming of this, and this introduction to this man, Sai Baba, was initiated by your step-mom, your father as well, and that’s what caused you troubles there. So before then were you actually familiar with the teachings and the beliefs of Sai Baba?

Kristoff St.John: Before we left for India, we had been indoctrinated roughly six years before we travelled there. My step-mother Maria and my father Christopher were coming out of the 60s and the 70s, as many people were from that hippie generation, looking for some sort of spiritual leader or teachings, that weren’t necessarily organized religions that the churches had to offer, and so East Indian or Hindu philosophy, the Buddhist philosophy, were very attractive to many people, and my parents were no different. So they gravitated towards the Eastern philosophy. And it’s interesting to me that the East has what the West has to offer, which is technology, and the West is searching hopelessly and helplessly, for what much of the East has, which is spirituality, supposedly. I found out that you don’t have to travel 12 to 50 thousand miles away from your home to find God, that God actually resides in your spirit inside of you. It was an interesting journey, that six years where we studied the teachings of the man, his philosophy, and ultimately finally, after Maria had taken a couple of trips there, we went there together as a family. My father had been asked by Sai Baba to make a documentary about him through Maria, and so he was asked to write a screenplay about Sai Baba’s young child life. So my dad did both of those things.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, returns to Canada after bombshell announcement

Published

on

The Duchess of Sussex has returned to Canada after she and Prince Harry announced they were “stepping back” as senior members of Britain’s royal family.

Prince Harry remains in the UK and Meghan is expected to come back to London on Tuesday, when the couple are set to attend an event with Janice Charette, High Commissioner of Canada to the UK, at Canada House.

Meghan and Harry wanted to meet with Charette “as well as staff to thank them for the warm Canadian hospitality and support they received during their recent stay in Canada,” according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.

The couple recently returned from Canada, where they spent the Christmas holidays with the duchess’ mother, Doria Ragland.

“The Duke and Duchess have a strong connection to Canada. It’s a country The Duke of Sussex has visited many times over the years and it was also home to The Duchess for seven years before she became a member of The Royal Family,” the royals said on their Instagram page, Sussex Royal, on Wednesday.

The latest developments follow the shock announcement that the pair plan to “transition into a new working model” and become “financially independent” after stepping back from their roles as senior members of the British royal family.

There was said to be a mood of deep disappointment in the palace following the announcement, and senior members of the family are hurt as a result of the news.

Meghan and Harry’s desire to become “financially independent” has also sparked questions as to how they will be able to do this.

The pair published detailed documents outlining the structure and funding of their household, which revealed they receive 5% of their income from the Sovereign Grant — a lump sum of UK taxpayers’ money given to the Queen every year — and 95% from the Duchy of Cornwall, the private estate controlled by Prince Charles, Harry’s father.

Media reports have suggested that Meghan was independently worth around $5 million before she married Harry, who inherited millions from his mother Princess Diana.

However UK newspaper The Times reports that Charles may withdraw funding from the couple if they completely withdraw from their royal duties.

Observers say the couple are unlikely to struggle for money and could generate income from a UK trademark for their brand ‘Sussex Royal,” which the couple applied for in June, as well as sponsorship or speaking tours.
