Guru Maharaj Ji Is Here

Mahatma Gurucharanand applies a Tilak to the young Satguru Maharaji (Prem Rawat)

Satsang given by Guru Maharaj Ji on July 31, 1966.

"Mahatmas and dear premies, please sit in peace; listen and see. The first thing is that Guru Maharaj ji is here. I say that Guru Maharaj Ji has, for some reason, clouded your wisdom. Do you think that he would leave you? I see him exactly the same with these very eyes, but your wisdom is changed and has turned your mind in such a way that you think the last ceremony is performed. Guru Maharaj Ji is here. Would Guru Maharaj Ji force you to realize God within by leaving you? What must you have been thinking? No such test has been taken yet and never will it be taken. Therefore do not think that he is not present. Your mind is so much changed, such a curtain is over your eyes, that he is before you but you don't understand. He is within you and outside you, but your mind is confused. I know that Guru Maharaj Ji is here. He is in very subtle form and very apparent too."

The young Satguru Maharaji (Prem Rawat) with mahatmas "I will tell you what happened at Dehra Dun after Guru Maharaj Ji left his body. I was sleeping. On one side of me Mata Ji was sleeping and on the other side a cabinet was standing. On that side, I suddenly felt that there was a man. I looked closely, wondering what this was all about. Then I saw that Maharaj Ji was there. I turned around and Mata Ji was still sleeping so I looked again to the other side and saw that Maharaj Ji was there. I talked with Guru Maharaj Ji about certain matters."

"So Guru Maharaj Ji is here. He has not gone anywhere. If you want him to come before you then I will reveal him to you. You'll be glad to know that I will give proof and make him apparent tonight. I will give proof at 9:00. How will you see Maharaj Ji before you? I will give you proof how you will see. When a man leaves the body or when the god of death takes him away, his body is left behind. But Guru Maharaj Ji is present before you, he has not gone anywhere."

"If you think that Guru Maharaj Ji is gone, your mind is confused. Otherwise, how could I have talked to him? Tomorrow I will show you what power I have brought to this world with me. Just as Prahlad manifested God by the power of meditation I will also manifest Guru Maharaj Ji before you by the power of meditation."
