YOU ARE MY SAVIOR "You Are My Saviour" video transcript

This video, titled "You Are My Saviour", a Divine Light Mission Inc. release, was produced in 1980. It contains some different scenes of Prem Rawat dancing, encoring his dancing and "sharing satsang" ie giving extemperaneous speeches in his inimitable style and surprisingly unpleasant shouting. Unfortunately, age has diminished the quality of the picture and sound though everything is completely legible. The video was mainly filmed on July 25, 26, 27 & 28, 1980 at the Guru Puja festival in Miami Florida. The scenes with Rawat having long hair were filmed in November 1979 at the Hans Jayanti festival in Kissimmee, Florida.

Despite later Elan Vital propaganda stating that Prem Rawat at no time believed or encouraged beliefs in his own divinity or identity to the God Krishna, this video taken at nearly the zenith of the "super-devotional" period of Divine Light Mission just before it was renamed Elan Vital shows him openly making such claims. It includes small segment in which he "explains" exactly what this "Knowledge" is and why we should beg him for his "Gift of Knowledge." It features 3 songs 'You Are My Saviour', 'I Just Want To Dance With You' and a South American style tune all of which feature the interpretative divine dance of Guru Maharaj Ji as he was then known or Maharaji or Prem Rawat as he now calls himself.

'You Are My Saviour' sung by Lindsay Field, One Foundation
You are my savior and I couldn't save myself if I tried
You are my savior and I pray
I never walk away
From you (are my savior)
You never let me walk away from you
I'm lost without you
You are my savior (repeat)
Maharaji Is My Savior

That Savior that comes in this world … What will be that Savior's number one enemy? What will he have to fight? I mean, he doesn't have to fight you and me. He doesn't have to fight human beings. If he starts fighting human beings, who's he going to save? What does he fight? He fights with out concepts. He fights with our ideas. Because we have all these ideas, "This is the way it should be." If it is not that way, then it isn't what it should be. And all our truths wilt away. All our truths become unrelative. All our truths automatically aren't truths anymore. Suddenly they're not the real thing anymore. Because it's not related with a direct experience. It's not related to any experience. And yet the Truth is. The real Truth is related to an experience - an experience that's real, an experience that's complete, an experience that's alive, an experience for you and me, an experience for all of us, an experience for human beings. That's His Truth.

You Are My Savior - One Foundation

Show me the way
Free me from myself
Take me away from the dark and misery
Open my eyes to the beauty that lies inside

Don't make me waste this life when in you I need to dwell
I've already spent my life on the borders of heaven and hell
Now I know who you are
Please open my heart to you

Take me to the highest mountain
And bathe me in the purest fountain
Cause you are my savior and I couldn't save myself if I tried
You are my savior and I pray
I never walk away

And again, this opportunity presents itself to us, to open up, to really understand, to really experience a very deep experience for every one of us. To experience something that's real through our efforts, through our efforts, not a vending machine. Our efforts to experience Knowledge, to experience an experience that Guru Maharaj Ji wants to give us, an experience that's real, and we know it, we feel it. An experience that's true, an experience that's constant, you know. You know it's very easy to get spaced out in this world. It's very easy to get lost in this world and it's very easy to forget that there is somebody called a Saviour. And yet that's our greatest mistake, that we forget. We forget that yes we can be helped, yes that we can be saved, yes that we do need to be saved. We all really, really, really, really need to be saved. And without being saved in this world where are we gonna be? What are we gonna cling on to? What is it in this world that's really gonna bring us something? You know, there are people who are really involved in politics, politics is their life, inside and out, day in, day out, politics, politics, politics, politics, politics. You know, a little lie here, a little big lie there, medium sized and throw it out there, little bit this and little bit that, you know. There are people who are involved in religion, religion here, religion there, religion everywhere, you know.

Prem Rawat (Maharaji) is the Savior

Almost sounds like Old MacDonald farm (laughter). Little bit of politics here and a little bit there and a little bit everywhere, and you know. Little bit of religion here and a little bit of religion there and a little bit of religion everywhere. (laughter) A little bit of chaos here and a little bit of chaos there and a little bit of chaos everywhere. Sounds like a wonderful song, you know. I don't know if that Old MacDonald isn't really a human being and I wonder if those oink oinks and an oink oink here and a quack quack there isn't really our natures, our true natures, you know. Cause that, that sounds more like it when you put it in that perspective, you know, with a oink oink here and an oink oink there, here an oink, there an oink, oink, oink, you know, everywhere oink oink and that sounds like human being. And a quack quack here and a quack quack there, that that does sound like human being I mean it. Ducks do go quack quack that's how they talk. What's so funny about ducks going quack quack but human beings going quack quack, that is funny and that's what we do. Quack, quack, quack, quack, all the time. (laughter) We oink oink about everything, we quack quack about everything, we moo moo about everything, everything that we can possibly think of in this world. We've been through mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine. I mean it's outrageous, it really is. The saviour comes and says Old MacDonald, you wanna get it straight this time and right this is what is gonna happen to you, you're gonna be oinking all the rest of your life, you're gonna be quacking the rest of your life too. Get it together.

Get it together. Is there a shortage of religions in this world? Come on, you know, you've gotta be kidding. If there is one, just go make one. Just, I mean it's almost gotta be kidding to say there's a shortage of religion in this world. There isn't. There is so much, so many different kinds of religions in this world that a person who could name all them deserves a degree of a professor, a doctor, at least, you know. And yet, none of those, none of those (shakes his head) are gonna help us. What is gonna help us? Is when we recognise that Saviour. Don't you understand? I mean how many religions must there have been in time of Krishna, in the time of Mohammed, in time of when Jesus came and how many are there now? And if you feel there is a shortage, you can always open a new religion. And yet Saviour comes to save us from everything, give us a new life, give us a new meaning, give us a new hope, give us a new light. Makes us strong because we are weak. We become weak, we become tired in this world. He makes us strong. We become blinded by the obsessions of this world. He gives us the eyesight, he gives us the light. He gives us the energy to walk. He shows us the direction. Miracle, we look for miracles. That is the ultimate miracle. A guy who doesn't have legs, doesn't have eyes, who has no meaning in this life. I mean, if somebody is blind, if somebody is really blind, what do we see in this world that's so incredible, so fascinating that they could enjoy it too. The red polluted skies, the dirty, filthy rivers, what? Human being killing each other? Making k chaos out of this beautiful, beautiful earth? What, what is left incredible left really?

And yet that Saviour comes and gives an incredible beauty to watch with the incredible new eyes given to us. A beauty, literally, out of this world, completely out of this world. A beauty that's real, a beauty that's always there. He gives us a new meaning, he gives us, he gives our whole body a reason to be alive, a new reason to exist and all our hopes are gone, you know and I just see that besides all the little other factors a human being is really fortunate because he can attain all this, (shouting) a Saviour comes for him. For a human being, you know. And and he gives us a truth by which the entire creation is sustained. He gives a realisation by which everything is present. He gives us the ultimate truth, a truth that cannot be spoken. And so I mean there is the, I feel, the real opportunity, the real opportunity for every one of us, you know. To just even realise what Knowledge is, what a precious gift it is that has been given to us. We forget so easily. It's incredible. It's so precious. And for human beings, for you and you and you and you and you and you and you and you and you, everybody. For every human being, not for the person behind you, in front of you and be besides you but for you. A real gift, an ultimate gift, the real thing, the real thing. Not a joke, you know, not a concept but the real thing in this day and age to be given to us.

You Are My Saviour - One Foundation (continued)
Cause I've been tempted by so many things
Pain and separation is all it ever brings
But you give me your love
And you lift me above this hole I'm in
And you take me to the highest mountain
And you bathe me in the purest fountain
Cause you are my savior and I couldn't save myself if I tried
You are my savior and I pray
That I never walk away
From you (are my savior)
You never let me walk away from you
I'm lost without you
Running around in an empty world
Believing that something here going to comfort me
Trying to put it all behind me
But you keep coming back to remind me
That only your love can set me free
Your love is everything to me

Look, I'm not saying that you have to give up every idea you have. You can have all you great ideas, how to invent a binocular, how to invent a television, how to invent a new car that doesn't use any gasoline, have them, enjoy those ideas. The only thing is your idea how to save yourself, give it up, cause it's not about to work, it hasn't worked for anybody. Don't you understand in no one civilisation yet has been saved yet. Civilisations come, civilisations go. Human beings come, human beings go and the saga continues and for every civilisation, for every human being comes a saviour, very humbly requests for everyone of us to press reveal, reveal it to us, request and I see you know I just I know my Guru Maharaj Ji, the day he gave me the solution, you know, it's like, I don't know there is nothing in this world that can describe that feeling that all of a sudden, all of a sudden, you know just, just imagine that, you know, you try to fight, you try to understand, you try to comprehend this whole world, you try to have a solution for everything, you have so many, so many millions and millions of questions and then all of a sudden the Master hands you a solution and from there on you don't need to know anything, from there on you're content, from there on all your questions have been answered. What an incredible feeling, that's it. I know what I need to know. I know the secret of the universe. I know the secret of existence. I know the formula of existence. I do then become immortal. I do then go beyond, I beyond the cycle of life and death. I do then have salvation. I do then become a citizen of that kingdom of heaven on earth.

I just see what a graceful opportunity, what a graceful game and it's just like everybody frantically running around, trying to find the solution and all you've gotta do is in your hearts right here somewhere, there's a little button, maybe up here and it says "Press to give up" and you press it and you give up and bam something really manifests, something really happens, something incredible that happens, I am sure that that's what happened with the disciples when Jesus was here. Give up, I have the answer, I have the solution for you. Why did they come? What was the difference between them and all the other guys running around at that time. They didn't press their buttons, they did, the few ones that did had an incredible experience and then, then that love really manifests, the purpose really becomes alive and there is a reason to be alive. Then the reason to exist, the reason to be, there's a reason to enjoy, there's a reason to be happy, there's a reason to smile. There's a reason to love one another and I just see that's the solution that mankind needs. Not, not another joke, not this century. No, the solution, the ultimate solution is what we all need, the ultimate grace is what we all need. (frenzied) I know that to do I myself do not give up. On my little thing, on my little hanger that I always hang from. I have to come down, I have to give up, I have to understand, I have to let go. I have to come to the Master and say, "Okay, this is it. Give me, take me, take me, let me have an experience. Give me what you have to give me. Take my doubts away. There is that song "I surrender to my Satgurudev who has taken my doubts away, Satisfaction grew in place of discontentment" That's what needs to happen to everyone of us. We can play this little game always with ourselves, "Me, I'm a premie, I've got it made." Sure, you have it made so far you try, so far you press that button up there or here. "Help me." Then yes we do because the precious gift we have been given is incredible. It is upon which the universe is existent. It is upon which this entire human life depends on. It is what sustains us. It is what is everywhere. It is life, it is energy in the purest form, it is the real you and me. It is the Creator, it is what the moon dances on. It is what makes the sun shine. It is the essence of this entire existence wherever that existence is, within you and me.

And we have to understand, you know, that how incredible, how much grace has been given to us, how beautiful it really is. I know I had to understand in my life. I have to understand, I had to. How could I go on day to day to day to day living in the mundane world having received the most incredible gift of my life … my life. Born again, to live forever. Born again to exist. Born again to enjoy. Born again to love. Born again to serve. Born awa again to just merge again in the incredible beauty. How, how could I take that present, hide it in my pocket and say "Nothing is happened." I would be a stoopid idiot if I did that and I know I could just take myself and really recognise it. As simple as that gift is I have to recognise that. My opportunity to, my good fortune to have such a precious gift and I I I'll not say, you know, the rishis and the munis wanted it too, of course they wanted it. You don't know what rishi and munis were. You don't know what they looked like and you don't know what they did. But you know what you do but you have that who you are. This is it. This is it. This is thu main gift. Because why? It contains me cause I need it. Why does it satisfy me? Because I need it. Why does it take my discontment away? Because it contents me. Why does it purify me? Because I am impure, I need to be purified. I have to recognise that. I have to understand that and you know I'm not afraid. When I have Knowledge I am not afraid to say that. I'm not afraid to say that yes I did need to be purified. I'm not afraid to say yes I needed to be born again. Yes, I needed love. Yes, I want love. I needed Knowledge. I want Knowledge. I need my Guru Maharaj Ji. I want my Guru Maharaj Ji. Cause then becomes that perfect reflection in my life. It becomes an experience that my mind cannot doubt. It becomes an experience that is unrevocable. It becomes an experience that I cannot just kick away. It becomes an experience I cannot just lift the end of the carpet and tuck it under it. Because it is a real experience. Because I've become real. My thoughts become real. My life becomes real.

And so simply from my heart, from myself, from me to approach the Perfect Giver, to p, to approach my Perfect Emperor, my King, Emperor, the King of Kings, to beg in his court of mercy just to beg for that gift. The gift that he comes to give to us human beings again and again and again. To walk into his court within me. To walk into his shining palace, within me. Glittering everywhere with his love becoming so obvious for me that his existence is to approach him with a humble heart,

to get on my hands and knees and to beg, it feels so good. (shouting) It feels so good to beg. You know why. Because when we do get on our hands and knees we realise we had never anything to give to anybody, anyway. Born beggar. To beg the Ultimate One in our hearts. To beg that Emperor for that solution in our hearts. The most majestical thing that happens to a human being or can ever happen to a human being. To open myself up, me, to beg Him, a moment between me and the Ultimate Being. A moment for me to have with that Ultimate Thing, a personal audience (shouting) and I know that when I beg the Emperor is listening to me. (shouting) In this whole world the Creator of billions and billions and billions of souls is listening to me. The Sustainer, the Generator the Destroyer of this entire (long pause) thing, not just the world, above and beyond by His Grace I have captured a moment between me and Him and nothing stands in our way. It is complete, it is Ultimate, it is real and when I become like that in my heart, I beg, then that Gift is given to me (shouting) a Gift which is a part of Him, a Gift that's His, Him, He doesn't just give a third thing, He gives Himself to me for keeps.

Prem Rawat (Maharaji) is the Savior

He gives me his heaven, he gives me his kingdom, he gives me everything I've always wanted. He makes me a part of this incredible game, he makes me a part of his incredible creation, he makes me a part of what I've always wanted to be a part of and you see that my concepts that my, my ideas do not exist. They are so fragile, they are so unrelative, they are so gross, to be casually putting it, gross. What I thought this world was all about, what I thought how my salvaion is going to happen, what I thought who I am, who I was, my ego, my identity. For every sin I've committed in my life and when I beg the Ultimate Emperor forgives me. The Ultimate Emperor gives me another chance. Then he not only gives me another chance, he gives me a way not to ever do it again. He gives me life, he gives me himself, much more than I can have, much more than any one of us can have. Much more than any one of us deserve. So just, you know, just, just understand how fortunate you are, you are a premie. How lucky it is, how beautiful it is that you have Knowledge. Just meditate, have satsang, you know, understand, experience and glow. Don't just rubberstamp yourself, "I glow" but glow! Let that light, let that light shine out from you and enjoy yourself cause that's what it's all about. Enjoy yourself. Enjoy yourself in the practice of satsang, service and meditation. Enjoy yourself that you have this life. And so, oh well, see you soon and thank you very much and blessing to all the premies. (Bhole Shri Satguru Dev Maharaj Ki Jai)

I surrender to my SatGuru Dev
I surrender to my SatGuru Dev
Who has …

Then Prem Rawat, the Guru Maharaj Ji Himself, Ultimate Ruler, the Ultimate Emperor, the Ultimate One, the Ultimate Being, the Master, the Perfect Giver, the Savio(u)r, the King of Kings, the Creator, the Sustainer, the Generator, the Destroyer sits and smiles while One Foundation plays "I Surrender to my Satguru Dev" and then after whispering some instructions slips away to slip into something more comfortable.

Excitement builds and the crowd dances while awaiting the return of their Guru Maharaj Ji. They expect some divine darshan dancing because the band is playing "I Just Want To Dance With You". Prem Rawat returns to the stage dressed in one of his Krishna costumes with a frontal section designed to hide his flabby man boobs, bows his head in meditation for 2 or 3 seconds, fiddles with some controls built into his throne, then chews on some courage enhancers while looking uncomfortable for over 3 minutes before standing up and commencing waving his arms. He seems to be waving his arms to the beat of a different drummer, maybe to the sound of universes being created and destroyed.

Prem Rawat looks extremely comical with his legs wrapped in extraordinarily billowy pants. He resembles a satyr with a fat ass (arse), though it does make his body look thinner by comparison. He is only in his early 20's but is extremely unfit and cannot continue to "dance" ie wave his arms for very long. After less than 2 minutes of galactic surrealism amid occasional cries and screams of extreme ecstacy and adoration from his followers, he sits down.


I Just Want To Dance With You

When will I dance with you again?
What kind of an invitation should I send?
You're the one who makes the music lend
itself to the magic of love

When will I talk to you again?
You know that we are more than just friends now
Show me a love that needs to end
When all that I'm waiting for
Is the time when I can dance with you again

Chorus:
I just want to dance with you
You know that I do
I just want to dance with you

You know that I need your loving
I need to see your shining face
I need to kiss your Lotus Feet, Oh yes

Chorus

When will I dance with you again?
What kind of an invitation should I send?
You're the one who makes the music lend itself
And all that I'm waiting for
Is the time when I can dance with you again

Chorus
Repeat various

But wait, there's more.

The band breaks into something South Americanish and everybody knows that even short, fat, exhausted little Indian guys can't resist that rhythm when they're the Lord of the Universe.

He's up and dancing again after only a brief rest, he stands up and commences waving his arms and moving slightly from side to side but faster and totally embodying the South American feel and rhythm as you can see from the pictures below or especially the video.

In 1980 the premies were averaging around 30 years old and still had dark hair.
