Summer 1977
Volume 4, Issue 2, 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.

It All Exists Now! Gainesville, Florida, July 2, 1976

Because, you know, to a lot of people, that's the way it is. Believe me, to a lot of people their whole concept trip is: oh boy, forget it. This is a great thing you have received. Just do whatever you have to do to show that you are a plugged-in member. And that's about it. Forget about everything else.

And it wasn't just England. It was all through the European tour. But then, at the last program, there was just a burst of joy from all the premies. There was so much love and so much joy that, wow, you mean we can really, really experience? You mean we don't have to be like slaves? You mean we can really do it?

Everyone Should Feel It  Jamaica, West Indies, March 17, 1974

That is the reason of a Perfect Master to come into this world: to make us be revealed, to make us realize this Knowledge, this Truth, this Perfectness, which is within inside of us. Because always it is the Truth, you know, that is making us alive right now.

A Very Big Little Mystery Millenium '73, Houston, Texas, November 10, 1973

But there is one point about this Knowledge that we really have to understand. I can assure you of one thing: I can establish peace in this world. I can assure you of that. Because the Knowledge, the power of the Knowledge, is incredible. And when people understand it, when people realize it, that's it. That's it. That's it for them.

And this is the way we can establish Peace on this earth, on this very planet, in this very century. We can do it. It's no problem. It's no big mess up. It's just the way how to go around doing it is the only thing. Otherwise, it's very possible. And that world of Peace, that kingdom of heaven on earth, is very possible.

Know What You're Driving Auckland, New Zealand, October 24, 1975

That fact is what all the Masters in this world come to reveal, what all the Perfect things in this world come to reveal. The reason is because it is important for you to know. It's very, very important for you to know. It's like, if you are walking and you start thinking that, "I am in America," but you are really in England, and you start crossing the street, forget it. Some car is going to definitely come and hit you. At that time it's very, very important to remember.

This is why all the Perfect Masters come: to remind us that -- wait a minute, whatever you have been doing, you have been doing. But the fact remains that there is the Truth in this world. This is what you have come to recognize
