'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 with highbrow pretensions attempting to carry a wide spectrum of articles relating to the wider alternative culture 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.

From here on there were no more articles about anything not directly concerned with Prem Rawat aka Guru Maharaji aka Maharaji. Actually there were no more articles at all. There were only edited transcripts of Rawat's speeches and this policy continued when the magazine was renamed and revamped as "Élan Vital"
