Blue Aquarius Album

Blue Aquarius was a band of musicians who were followers of Prem Rawat in 1972/73. They were a "big band" similar to Blood, Sweat and Tears comprising rock musicians, brass and string instruments. They recorded this album for Stax Records' Gospel Truth label. This album was very popular with Rawat's followers but the band was generally panned by journalists.

God Is Love

God is love and love is God
God is truth, truth is peace
And we can do with some today
Love is God and God is love
love is truth, truth is peace
And the Lord can show us the way
Bhole Shri Satgurudev Maharaj Ki jai
He's the living Lord today
Bhole Shri Satgurudev Maharaj Ki jai
he's the living Lord today

We keep falling into the maya
But the real you and I we are a spark of God's own fire
God who is the light is in me and you
And because of that there is nothing that we cannot do
Can you say that you've really been trying
To bring back peace and truth into your life
Shri Maharaj Ji he's revealing the Knowledge
That can lead us from the darkness to the light
He can lead us from the darkness to the light

Because God is love and love is God
God is truth, truth is peace
And we can do with some today
Love is God and God is love
Love is truth, truth is peace
Aand our Lord can show us the way
Sing the Lord's name
Bhole Shri Satgurudev Maharaj Ki jai
He's the living Lord today
repeat
And he's come down to show us all the way


Rewritten 90's Lyrics
ROCK ME MAHARAJI

Everything was dark at first
Things have gone from bad to worse
Somewhere in the universe
I had to find a way
When I was a little child
This world had made my mind run wild
Then I saw Maharaji smile
And nighttime turned to day
He showed me something in my heart
And my whole world was filled with love

Chorus
So rock me Maharaji and roll me tonight
Rock me Maharaji and say it's all right
It's all right

Leave behind your cares and fears
Leave behind your worldly tears
All your doubts will disappear
And you will know what's true

The majesty of earth and sky
Created for our human eyes
But something even more divine
Is inside of me and you
I have seen another world
A knowledge we were born to learn

Chorus

Let your spirit fly
Higher than the sky
You will know the reason
Why you are alive
I have felt the power of
An endless wave of love

Chorus

Original Lyrics
ROCK ME MAHARAJI

Everything was dark at first
Things had gone from bad to worse
The Lord of all the universe
Came down to show the way
I was just a little child
Maya made my mind run wild

Then Guru Maharaj Ji smiled
And nighttime turned to day
I will give you peace he said
And at his feet I laid my head

Chorus
So rock me Maharaji and roll me tonight
Rock me Maharaji and say it's all right
It's all right

Give Him all your cares and fears
Give Him all your worldly tears
Everyone who comes and hears
Receives the Holy Name

Creatures of the earth or sky
All the things that swim and fly
There's no reason why
To Him we're all the same
Living in Satguru's word
I am yours my only Lord

Chorus

Turn the Music high
Fill me full of Light
With my second birth
I have second sight
Balyogeshwar Param Sant Ji Maharaj is Love

Chorus

Know Him While You Can

(chorus certain, some lyrics indecipherable)
You've got a feeling like you want to lie down
But there's nowhere you can only turn around
There's somebody to be found
And He's spreading all the dawn light around

Know Him while you can (sing 6 times)
Before time will run you down

You got to turn around
indecipherable verse - something about wishes and tie on a tree)
Only He can see

Know Him while you can (sing 6 times)
Before time will run you down

You got to turn around
Lifetimes, lifetimes are travelling
Now we have the chance to begin
You need to come inside
His arms are open wide

You've got a feeling like you want to lie down
But there's nowhere you can only turn around
Everybody's to be found
And he's spreading all the dawn light around

Know Him while you can (repeat and fade)


At the Feet of the Master

Waiting the word of the Master
Watching the Hidden Light
Listening to catch His Orders
In the very midst of the fight
I'm listening to catch His Orders
In the very midst of the fight

Seeing His slightest signal
Across the head of the throng
Hearing His faintest whisper
Above earth's loudest song.
I'm hearing His faintest whisper
Above earth's loudest song.

At the Feet of the master
Well you can really let it go
Let it flow
Cause we're all love
We're all love
We're all love, love, love
By His grace


Oh Maharaji

I think of you all day through
I dream of you all night too
Oh Maharaji, Oh Maharaji
Oh Maharaji, Oh Maharaji

I see your blessed face
And all my troubles are erased
You are my very soul
My world lights up, I want you to know
I love you Maharaji, Oh Maharaji
I really love you Maharaji, Oh Maharaji,

I feel your love so sweet
Life without you is incomplete
And just to know your name
My heart rejoices, I know no pain
I need you Maharaji, Oh Maharaji,
I really need you Maharaji, Oh Maharaji

Won't you take us home
I want to go home with you
Take us home with you
I want to go home with you
Don't let me roam
Oh without you Maharaji
I'd be so alone, yeah without you Maharaji
I want to follow you everywhere you go now
I gotta tell the world about you
I'm gonna tell them that you're true
I'm so hung on you Maharaji
Take me take me, take me home with you


The lyric "I'm so hung on you Maharaji" is actually a pun for those in the secret. Sohung (or "Soham") was the mantra that Divine Light Mission originally taught in the early 1970's as part of the 'Word' or "Holy Name" technique of meditation. It is also Hansa (or "Hamsa") the Swan with the syllables reversed and is part of standard Yoga meditation.


Satguru Has Come
1, 2, 1234
The signs of the times there's a fire that's burning in the heart of ever man
And the garden home has grown in into a prison
Open your eyes and realise that the wheel of life it turning
And the age is here where all fear must change to Knowledge
Satguru has come, freedom, freedom, all mankind is gonna be as one
Love is all, all is one

City streets there's a siren sounding on a day of violent warning
We've become the slave of what we made to serve us
And if you criticise and think it's all lies your wind of truth is pounding
Your ideas and crazy notions won't preserve us
Satguru has come, freedom, freedom
All mankind is gonna be as one
To show us love is all, all is one, that's God

Satguru has come, freedom, freedom
All mankind is gonna be as one
Love is all, all is one
