1984 Metamorphosis: Goodbye Guru Maharaj Ji! Hail the New and Improved Prem Rawat!
I like to think it would have been fitting if Prem Rawat dropped his Guru Maharaj Ji persona in 1984 and undergone his Metamorphosis into Maharaji the Master without any divine powers but somehow really, really special for a normal human being and Prem Rawat the successful investor and modern renaissance man and global ambassador of peace. He would not have understood the literary references but what's a year or two in the life of the once-upon-a-time Perfect Master and Lord of the Universe who downgraded Himself and transformed into a normal albeit unusually brilliant man who has the unique ability to inspire and empower the only true form of meditation available.
"As Prem Rawat awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a monstrous vermin."
