Satsang of Shri Hans Ji Maharaj - Prem Rawat's Father

Hans Rawat forcefully claimed to be the Satguru or Perfect Master of his time though he was not accepted by the majority of his own Master's other followers. He married twice, the second time to Jagat Janani Mata Shri Rajeshwari Devi also known as "Mata Ji" and they had four sons. He was certainly not reticent in describing himself as God incarnate in human form and attacked his competitors unmercifully. In 1953 he called the gurus of the Hare Krishna movement the biggest frauds in what was meant to be a Parliament of Religions.

According to his followers, Shri Hans was early in his life an egalitarian iconoclast, and an opponent of the Hindu caste system. He was originally a member of the Arya Samaj, but left that movement after he met a guru of the Sant Mat tradition, Sri Swarupanand Ji Maharaj. Swarupanand initiated him into the four techniques of Knowledge or kriyas, which are the centrepiece of his religion. In the 1930s following the death of his guru, he began to travel in Sind and Lahore and later to Delhi.

Satsang of Shri Hans Rawat

A large collection of his translated speeches (or "satsangs") are published on this site, including:

A series of his satsangs were formerly published on the Manav Dharam website from 2007. They are reasonably short and presumably edited to nearly identical lengths.

A series of quotes clarifying different topics of Hans' teachings are available here.

Hans Rawat was certainly not a shy person nor a dull dresser. He dressed as Krishna (as his son did out of the public eye) and in his later years was up and dancing and singing on stage at the drop of a mala.

Video of Shri Hans Rawat

Hans Rawat was a canny businessman and successful Godman so he could afford to be filmed and some video is available of him. There are clips interspersed through many of the films, videos and DVDs published by Rawat's organisations.

These clips are from Elan Vital videos and come with commentary promoting the youngest son, Prem Rawat. No doubt, the eldest son, Satpal Rawat, has similar commentary in his videos, as he stresses his inheritance through his father and mother, though they would be in Hindi.
