Prem Rawat's "Holy Brother" Raja Rawat
*** 2015 *** It was rumoured within the Miami premie community that Bhole Ji provided a substantial financial gift to his younger brother Raja Rawat who had been left without adequate funds by their youngest brother and former Lord of the Universe, Prem Rawat, to maintain the lifestyle he aspired to and this was confirmed when "Shri Raja Ji" began appearing (circa 2015-16) on stage at Hanslok events in India.
Raja Rawat was the Holy Family member who seemed to miss out on a spectacular divine super power. The eldest brother was the brains of the universe, the second eldest had all the musical talent in the family, the youngest was the Lord of the Universe and even Greater than God and Raja got to run the World Peace Corps which were the Lord's bodyguards in a reasonably ineffective 70's ex-hippie sort of way. When he first came to the West he was soon as debonair as one of the dowdy Rawats could be but very early on his penchant for booze and dope and guns became an open secret.
He lives in Miami, Florida (2005) and does tours around premie communities shilling for money for various of Rawat's needs usually accompanied by a "student", Yoram Weiss, who is one of Rawat's long term followers and chief fund-raiser as a minder and to handle the details.
Using his cachet as Shri Raja Ji, brother to the Lord of the Universe, he married a beautiful German devotee, Miss Claudia Littmann on Sunday 28th April, 1974 in Denver, Colorado. The marriage didn't last long but it has provided Hollywood with a successful, exotic young actress, Navi Rawat. It is wonderfully ironic that she is already more famous than her uncle whose self-bestowed titles include "Maharaji" or Great King, "Guru Maharaj Ji", "Balyogeshwar Param Sant Shri Satgurudev Ji Maharaj", "Lord of the Universe", "Greater Than God" and "Giver Of The Gift of the Possibility of Peace". It's pretty obvious from which parent Navi Rawat got her looks. Raja Ji had alcohol abuse and other problems and after his wife divorced him his profile within the premie community dropped.
"Thank you, Maharaj Ji, for satsang. Thank you for meditation. Thank you for service. Thank you for you, your darshan. Thank you for letting me surrender to you." - Durga Ji
"He's that perfect thing that can show us everything. He's that one perfection. And he's here for us." - Raja Ji
"I've no idea what love is, and all that I can do us just, by his Grace, try to completely, completely focus on him, on nothing else." - Claudia
Here we see Raja Ji, as he is still known amongst followers of Rawat, speaking in Montréal, Canada in June 2008. It is obvious from his speech that he might be a believer in Rawat's Knowledge but not someone who actually practised the meditation techniques regularly and that it is the same for most of these premies in Montreal.
"There is only one Perfect Master and we can't compete with Guru Maharaj Ji"
"because Guru Maharaj Ji's Knowledge is perfect there's nothing bad in saying that Guru Maharaj Ji is perfect. So we should propagate this Knowledge, this Holy Knowledge"
"The real truth is that only He is the Perfect Master, and only the Perfect Master gives perfection."
"I know, that you know Steve asked me this question, oh which, which place is really happening, you know, what, what is happening out there is everybody, you know, you come here and it's a little bit, he feels it's slow here, you know, probably probably people are just enjoying the summer, probably probably such a cold winter right? Was it bad winter this year?"
