Holi 1980 Bhajans Dedicated To Prem Rawat

In the early 1980's, far from attempting to remove Indian trappings from his "Knowledge" and followers' lives, Prem Rawat was intensifying their influence by promoting the use of bhajans as the main musical form used at his meetings and festivals. The lyrics demonstrate that these westernised bhajans are/were far more overtly worshipful than any used before (apart from the ubiquitous Arti) The extreme personality worship of Prem Rawat as a Divine and Holy Being was reinforced with such lyrics as "Always remember His every word is Holy", "How Beautiful Are The Feet Of Him" and "Maharaj Ji, Boundless is Your love and glory". For many further examples see the song books of DLM/EV bhajans here and here.

By 1982 we can see that there had been no attempt to remove any Indian-Hindu trappings from Divine Light Mission despite the re-branding of the organisation as Elan Vital that was then beginning or about to begin. Actually the opposite had happened and the main impetus of the organisation was encouraging devotion and worship of Prem Rawat as a divine omnipotent guru through the use of Indian bhajans as the dominant musical form at meetings.

Court Of Love

Whatever It Is That's Between Us

Chorus:
Whatever it is that's between us
Please take it all away
For the loneliness and the longing for You
Is growing more every day
Like the waves of an ocean
I feel Your love washing over me
Whispering Your Holy Name purify me

My Lord you are all
And warmer than the sun
There is a power in your smile
That brings my heart undone
For you have shown me
Thee deepest love
That anyone could know
And I feel your grace throughout me
Everywhere I go

Chorus

After many days of sadness
And searching for You
You came with all your radiance
To show me what is true
And you have loved me tenderly
Your have saved my soul
Now I gaze in wonder
And watch your magic unfold

Chorus

All Night Long

The only thing that I can feel within my heart to pray
As long as there is air that I may breathe
Is the praises of my Lord my everything to me
And the joy of merging in his feet
All night long let us stay with you Lord
All night long let us play with you Lord
All night long let us worship you Lord
All night long let us gaze at your form
All night long let us sing to you Lord
All night long let us dance with you Lord
Till we're totally gone

It is said the poor will always be with us to ???
But precious are the moments that you are here
What more in this universe do your devotees wish
Than to be with you each precious hour
All night long let us stay with you Lord
All night long let us play with you Lord
All night long let us worship you Lord
All night long let us gaze at your form
All night long let us sing to you
All night long let us worship you Lord
Till we're totally gone

So now we have this chance to gaze upon your golden form
And slip beneath your precious lotus feet
The time is still from now until eternity my Lord
And let this night with you never end
All night long let us stay with you Lord
All night long let us play with you Lord
All night long let us worship you Lord
All night long let us gaze at your form
All night long let us sing to you Lord
All night long let us dance with you Lord
Till we're totally gone

Endless Joy

Your dance is so heavenly
It fills me with endless joy
It fills me with endless joy

Your dance is so heavenly
It fills me with endless joy
It fills me with endless joy

I get lost in ecstacy
I get lost in ecstacy
Won't you please dance with me
I can leave the whole world
But I will never leave you
My body, mind and all the
I would love to give you
I can leave the whole world
But I will never leave you
My body, mind and all the
I would love to give you
I can leave it all

And we've come here to enjoy

Cause our hearts were born for him

Holi holi holi time

He is the father of divine love
And he's come to lift us higher
In his eyes there's a flame of love
In his heart there burns a fire

We will always love him
To the end of the evermore
So let our hearts rejoice in ecstasy
Just to see his divine form

Holi holi holi times
Chance to let our love light shine
Lord of all the universe
Is coming out to play
