The Pictorial History of Prem Rawat's Family

Prem Rawat did not arise from a void free of the past, culture and family. Prem Rawat's teachings are rooted in the Sant Mat tradition of Northern India as interpreted by his father but singularly includes a multi-ethnic lineage of reincarnated Masters of which Prem was the last and greatest.

In 1900 Hans Rawat, the father of Prem Rawat, was born and in 1930 he became involved with Sri Swarupanand and his Advait Mat Panth.

The Young Hans Rawat

In 1936 when Swarupanad died, Hans became an itinerant preacher recruiting men and women to his cult. In 1946 Hans Rawat married again to Rajeshwari Devi a 19 year old less than half his age. By 1957 they had 4 sons, the eldest became Satpal Maharaj and the youngest was Prem.
