The Éminence Grise
While the details of Prem Rawat's childhood incarnation as the Guru Maharaj Ji can no longer be confirmed there is litle doubt that Mahatma Sampuranand played a central role.
In 1999 Mahatma Sampuranand, Rawat's number one man in India, had this version of the events of Prem Rawat's Incarnation as the Perfect Master posted on www.enjoyinglife.org. In 2001 the Elan vital video 'Passages' made mention of the incarnational events.
In 2001 the Elan Vital video 'Passages' was shown and sold to premies. it contains a revisionist history of Prem Rawat's career devoid of the claims of his divinity, being the Supreme Power, the Lord of the Universe, the Guru Maharaj Ji or Revealer of Light and Ultimate Ruler and his insistent claims to be worshipped and implicity obeyed by his followers who should completely dedicate their lives to him in ashrams with all their time, energy and money. A short picture of Rawat's incarnation was presented without mentioning his mother and eldest brother. It also removed the spiritual or divine parts of the story that had been the most important elements in the 1960's and '70's.
"Shri Maharaji did gave the words many times saying when he was telling him stand up and give satsang to the audience and when he was finishing many times he was saying, "See how young he is and how beautifully he presents the Knowledge. Imagine when he will be grown up how he will present this beautiful Knowledge around the world to the human beings." - Mahatma Sampuranand
"He stepped forward and he gave the hope to thousands of people who were crying and wondering and he promised then, "Don't worry, your Master is with you with you always," and he said "I will take care of Knowledge. I will try to spread the same Knowledge as Shri Maharaj Ji was doing it." - Mahatma Sampuranand
