Early Pseudo-History of Prem Rawat in 'Passages'
One of the defining characteristics of Prem Rawat's organisations is the absence of any critical information about the Master or his activities or "success" Everything that occurs is cast in a positive light or, if that is impossible, ignored. Rawat's story is a remarkable one but it is neither timeless nor positive.
"He was Maharaji, and he was already the central figure in a truly remarkable and timeless story. History tells us there have always been Masters or teachers who have helped people experience an innate beauty in their lives. Maharaji's father, Shri Hans Ji Maharaj, had been the student of such a Master named Swarupanand. On Swarupanand's passing, Shri Hans Ji Maharaj became Master in 1936, he spent the next 30 years of his life spreading the Knowledge his Master had shown him."
'History' tells us that many people have claimed to teach religious truths and that many of them were bogus and evil. There are many such people alive today. 'History' tells us that the majority of Swarupanand's followers rejected Hans Rawat as the new Master. For a more detailed look at these specific claims see the Lineage of Perfect Masters
Sampuranand speaks of the death of Shri Hans and the incarnation of Prem Rawat (Maharaji). There is no doubt that Sampuranand was a major player in the proclaiming of Prem Rawat, the youngest son, as the new Satguru and he remained loyal to Prem when virtually every other Indian 'Mahatma' accepted Rawat's mother deposing him and installing his eldest brother Bal Bhagwan Ji as the new Satguru in 1975.
"Tonight, Guru Maharaj Ji has come just because we have so many people here but we had forgotten how tired he would be and arranged for this program. Please keep in your mind that he will speak for just a short time tonight."
"We have this human body but we have to even realise why that Supreme Being, that Lard has given us this human frame."
