"Maharaji progressively dissolved the Divine Light Mission, closing the ashrams, affirming his own status as a master rather than a divine leader, and empahasizing that the Knowledge is universal, non Indian, in nature"[...] "This Knowledge was self-understanding, yielding calmness, peace, and contentment, since the innermost self is identical with the divine.

 Maharaji (Prem Rawat): An Introduction
Maharaji (Prem Rawat) was born in India in 1957, the fourth son of the 'satguru' (true guru, there being only one in the world at a time), who had a large following in northern India.
From a premie's point of view, Maharaji's Knowledge is the way to inner peace, to find your 'heart', with Maharaji as the master of the meditation - teaching it in the first place, and from then on providing the inspiration and grace for the premie to progress.
For most other people, including ex-premies (like myself), Maharaji is the head of a cult, who teaches platitudes and fluff, and lives off the gullibility and credulity of his followers.

 Is Maharaji a leader of a cult? (Part 2)
Surely Mitch recalls the tirades of Maharaji and his minions about how our "mind" shouldn't be listened to, that it is on a mission to make us miserable and kick us off the path of knowledge and devotion.
Specifically, Maharaji said that your mind was a "fly" that must be "smashed," a "snake that must be killed," and that leaving the practice of knowledge was to jump from a ship into shark-infested waters.
The problem is that spreading knowledge conflicts with Maharaji being able to live in the style to which he has become accustomed in the hills of Malibu.

 Maharaji's Divinity, The False Academic Denial Of It, And Wikipedia
There is an ongoing attempt by Maharaji's organizations and his current followers to deny the claim of Maharaji's divinity, which was widespread in the 1970's and 1980's.
As I started this essay, Maharaji was accepted as being divine by all serious premies of that time, and he himself actively encouraged that belief, while trying not to leave too many direct quotes to posterity.
Maharaji was always held, and is even now still held, to be someone very special with divine powers.

 Articles on Maharaji (Prem Rawat)
Maharaji's organisations (Divine Light Mission, Elan Vital, the Prem Rawat Foundation) are often seen by premies as being elitist, and getting in between the individual premie and Maharaji.
After I had left Maharaji, I received an email from a premie close to Maharaji personally, who I knew well, who was saying that I was wrong and Maharaji is still the one etc. Actually, it was said with a lot of passion, and compassion, and this is my email back to them.
I have seen a new strategy emerging from Maharaji and his followers, whether deliberate or by accident, that is denying the 'devotional' aspect of Maharaji's work in the West.
