Guru Rugu is a celebrated best-selling self-published self-helper from Los Angeles who has changed the lives of millions with his simple but effective experimental meditations. He has been helping “turn your desperation into inspiration” since 1955 when he helped co-found the Los Angeles Meditation Ghostwriters Guild Local #012, where he still serves as Chief Meditating Officer (CMO) and Intern Coordinator. In 1971, Guru Rugu helped co-found the experimental meditation center of los angeles—which has no center—with artist Adam Overton. From 2010–2013, Guru Rugu worked intimately with Signify, Sanctify, Believe, a cute crew of religious technologists and publishing anarchivists hearkening from Los Angeles. He has worked with many other illustrious experimental healers, artists, and writers, including Veranda Moot and Matador Oven. Guru Rugu hosted Guru Rugu’s Experimental Meditation Hour on KCHUNG Radio AM1630 for several decades, which are archived at http://gururugu.kchungradio.org. Though not formally acknowledged, it is well-known that Guru Rugu was the inspiration behind Matador Oven’s provocative and influential tract, A Dabblerist Manifesto. Guru Rugu has been in hiding since his interns went on strike in June 2014, just days before he predicted (correctly) that KCHUNG Radio was coming to an end.
