Volume 2, Issue 3, August 1974, And It Is Divine Magazine

"And It Is Divine" was the name of this colour magazine published by Divine Light Mission in the USA from November 1972 until the late 1970's when it was replaced by "Elan Vital." It began as a monthly magazine attempting to carry a wide spectrum of articles relating to the wider alternative culture with highbrow pretensions and ended the same as all other Divine Light Mission magazines printing pictures and speeches of Prem Rawat's or his immediate family or close followers. Before 1974 every copy carried a signed manifesto by Sant Ji Maharaj stating "There has never been a time when the Lord of Creation did not manifest Himself in human form, and come to this planet Earth to do away with evil and spread the True Knowledge.

Supreme Peace Shri Maharaj Ji in Delhi, February, 1964.

But one thing you must relinquish before seeking this Knowledge is all form of fraud or deception. Kabir says that those persons are blind who attempt to cheat the Guru. If the Lord is angry, the Guru can intercede and forgive the offender, but if the Guru is angry, who can save a man? Once a seeker went to the Satguru of the time and said that he wished to see God with these mortal eyes. The Satguru made him understand these matters. There is one path, and however many times it is questioned or brought into ill repute by false devotees, it is still the single path to God. The seeker must receive Knowledge from the Guru and see God with his divine eye.

The Inner Game Of Tennis A Book Review by Paul Meadows

"There is something within every human being that is not mentioned in psychology books … It is something real and changeless; its beauty and its value have no limits … When one finds one's way to the direct experience of it … then he has achieved the first - but not the final - goal of the Inner Game."

Satsang of Guru Maharaj Ji, July 7 1974, Amherst, Mass.

And it's like there has been so much confusion lately. Especially in Canada and I guess some parts of America. I was in Europe, and now in Europe everything is so beautiful. It's really beautiful. People have just understood so much that they have understood that we let the confusion in ourselves. Confusion knocks, and we say, "Who is it?" and it says, "Confusion," and we open the door. It's like, we hear a knock on the door, and we say, "Who is it?" "It's the robber," and you open the door. Then we try to close the door. We say, "Okay, listen. Wait a minute. Do it again, will you? I didn't hear what you said, who you were." And he says, "Forget it. Here I am now." We let the confusion in by ourself. Sometimes premies really get confused. Don't bother. Really take it easy. Because, you know, Knowledge is working. It's just throwing all of that crap out of you - completely. It's throwing the complete mind out of you. And it's going to be beautiful; it's going to be clear.

Satsang of Durga Ji, July 7 1974, Amherst, Mass.

When you meditate, you really start to know Guru Maharaj Ji. The more you know him, the more you love him. And the more you love him, the more you want to serve him. And the more you serve him, the more you know him. This goes on, continuously, forever. Premies, today in the darshan line it was just so, so beautiful to see all of you having the holy darshan of our Lord. And I want you to know that every day, when I am with Maharaj Ji and I do pranam, it's for all of you. It's for every one of you. Because you and I are one. Thank you.

there is a knowledge

A person may spend his life searching the whole world over for something which will give him peace. Yet he will die in despair if he fails to understand that the source of peace and truth is to be found right inside himself. Guru Maharaj Ji's Knowledge teaches us how to meditate on the source of peace and love inside us.
