Rennie Davis: It is not possible to understand the Middle East, or Watergate, or UFOs, or the super comet in the sky unless you understand the central event on this planet around which all other events now spin. Guru Maharaj Ji says: 'Life is like a chess game and very soon now the whole world will be checkmated' and if America wants to know what is happening it must first understand the main thing that is happening, the Lord is on the planet, he's in a human body and he's about to usher in the greatest change in the history of human civilisation."

"Maharaji videos" usually have scenes of "beautiful people" premies. Back in 1973 it was rare to find old people so this older and very enthusiastic lady devotee was often pictured. She appeared in the "Festival of Knowledge" video from Brussels, Belgium, 1989. As time has passed most premies are now around 65 (2015) so it's rare to find young people in the audience.

Guru Maharaj Ji

"Because whatever Jesus taught to his disciples has not disappeared, it's still there. Because at that time, if those people stayed alive, it was because of the same Knowledge. And if at this time people are going to stay alive, it's because of the same Knowledge. And you're alive and it's because of that same Knowledge. So, for my sake, for your sake, for the sake of Almighty, and for the sake of peace on this earth, please will you realize this Knowledge? Thank you very much. "

"I would like to bet anyone who wishes to try and make some green energy that by November 15th, the Houston Astrodome will physically separate itself from the planet which we call Earth and will fly."

Lord of the Universe TVTV documentary

Rennie: You know you see this Astrodome and uh the more time we've spent in here the more we realise that it really was built for this event. Have you ever, have you been in the celestial suite or heard about that?" "No, what is it?" "Well the Astroworld here, see that whole uppper part there, on the top, the elevator goes up to the green and all the think, that's called the Celestial suite and that's where the Holy Family will stay and the bedroom where Guru Maharaj Ji will sleep is called the Master Bedroom." "Oh wow!" "There's a little, wooden plaque and it says 'Master Bedroom' and then you walk into the master bedroom

Lord of the Universe TVTV documentary Lord of the Universe TVTV documentary Rennie (1971):And the message is that you know we've had it, you know it's too much and uh come May 1st uh we're issuing an ultimatum to uh to Richard Nixon as as people all over the world issue their ultimatum to to Richard Nixon too and uh our ultimatum is if the government of the United States doesn't stop the war then then we're gonna stop the government of the United States.


Rennie (1973): You look back at your lifetime and you sort of feel like what you're doing now in Divine Light Mission is what you always wanted to do and it's rather like everyone sort of feels like every like whatever it was we were doing in the past, we're doing now and I'm rather getting that perspective about the whole generation that the vision we proclaimed in the streets of this country in the 1960's is actually what we're going to do now in the 70's and the 80's and it's actually going to be the generation of the 60's that is actually going to carry out this, this incredible change that we're talking about so people say well it's a big break with the past and do you look back at the past with regrets you know but I don't look at the past with any regret at all you know I just think it was really all a a warm-up you know and the political and cultural revolution it was just like, like I say a warm-up for the greatest transformation in the history of human civilisation and it's going to be far out."

Lord of the Universe TVTV documentary Abbie Hoffman: He's a good propagandist and what a propagandist does is establish the vision as a reality and then the the people, the masses, the present moves towards that vision but unless you accept the vision as a reality then you can't function and that's What a propagandist is or a teacher or whatever the other but I don't consider Rennie a kinda a teacher essentially more as a propagandist cause he's always pushin something else that's where he's more stoic, I don't trust stoics he had the wrost taste in food I ever met in my life, he's dressing better now
Rennie: If Jerry or Abbie or Tom Hayden or someone like that had gone off to India and come back and said "You know I mean it's blown my mind but the Lord is on the planet I mean I would have thought they'd fallen out of a tree or something
Abbie: Rennie is arrogant about the future, there's no doubt about it, that is arrogant to say not that ah the difference between saying you've found God and saying you know his address you know you got his credit card I mean you got his credit card or his telex number in your pocket you know cause it's a different kind of arrogance. It's great to find God but Jesus to have his telex numer is very elite.
Rennie: "The thing we've got here is not only a movement that is incredibly efficient and incredibly together and built really on an incredible self-understanding but you see it's led by the Lord, heh heh heh."

Ah, messes like Watergate and things like that but it's just not America, it's right around the world, you can't just blame just one country for it.

Astrologer: People are going to come here with incredible negative pre-determined notions and they're going to go away spaced out and blissed out and really turned on. Anybody who's exposed to this vibration cannot fight it because it's stronger than anything, you know, the vibration of Guru Maharaj Ji is stronger than anything that has ever, that has ever been known. There's a rumour going around that NASA is tracing and following him around the country because his energy level is stronger than anything they've ever seen before.
Mahatma: This place has been built up for Guru Maharaj Ji. Specially (knowing laughter) cause He's going to convey the message of Truth from this place

Lord of the Universe TVTV documentary Rennie: You know the size of this thing is very deceptive the Astrodome you know like there's a hotel called the Shamrock Hilton here in Houston, it's an eighteen storey building, a huge building. That eighteen storey building can stand on this floor and not touch the ceiling.

Knowall: Not one person getting paid money cash for this work he's doin'. If you took a million dollars and came up to some person and said "Build me a magnificent stage. I want it right out of the Bible and I want it put up in two days." The guy would say "Impossible. Impossible for a million dollars. Inmpossible. yet here's people doing it, for not for nothing because it's beyond nothing, it's beyond any monetary thing this thing that Guru Maharaj Ji can give to people and does give to people.

Guy with Unhappy Parents: Before I came to Guru Maharaj Ji I was a freak, smoking dope, dropped out, completely and my parents are more happy with that than they are with this.

Lord of the Universe TVTV documentaryGuy in cap: Before I came to Guru Maharaj Ji I was defintely searching for something you know beyond this material plane because I'd realised that I there was nothing more that I could you know attain here. I had everything materially that I could gain, that I wanted and there was nothing left except to find that Knowledge of God.

Guy on the Eve Of Destruction: We were into politics, we were into you know drugs you know a lot of these different different aspects of a counter culture. Trying to could change what we thought was innately wrong with this country, what was innately wrong with the world you know we'd been handed something in this world and we didn't like it you know. We really, like our parents gave us this world and it was it wasn't good you know. It was like the only thing we had to look forward to was total destruction in our lifetimes which wasn't really much to look forward to.

Lord of the Universe TVTV documentaryCurly Headed Guy: My mother especially feels I should go back to school and do something that's truly worthwhile but ah I've been trying to tell her that uh that's the reason I left because there was nothing in school you know economics you know that I couldn't find that peace that I've (She wants you to get a job) yeah a job you know move out to suburbia you know the whole scene.

Guy in cap: The thing that I've exerienced with parents is that their biggest worry is that Guru Maharaj Ji gives you more love than than they can and that worries them because you know they're losing their footholds, they're realising that they're only our physical parents, you know they're not really you know our spiritual parents and they're realising that Guru Maharaj Ji is offering something more than they can offer and this is the love that never stops, that never ceases.

Reporter: Some of the customs seem strange to us like darshan and people kissing Mata Ji's feet and we're wondering what it's like to have your feet kissed and what you think about during that?
Translater: If you you love your child and your child sometimes kisses you at your cheek or at your feet do you mind it? Do you get confused over it?
Reporter: Was he a difficult child or um did he do things he shouldn't have done?
Mata Ji is saying that you should first be clear in your quesiton you know how that that great power, that spiritual power come to give happiness to all give unhappiness to the mother?
Reporter: Many Americans are put off by the material things and yet the Holy Family seems to have more than their share of material things. I see that Mata Ji has a Mercedes. Would not a Chevrolet take her back and forth as well? (Uproarious laughter)
Mata Ji says that if you will know that Knowledge then you too will bring things for Mata Ji and then when you will know this Knowledge then the best thing you will find in the New York market you will bring for Mata Ji. That is the magic, Does she have any … that is the magic. Mata Ji is saying you should be happy with us becausewe are in living form, we are giving that Knowledge, we are sitting in that Rolls Royce and moving from one place to another place to save mankind by giving this Knowledge.

Reporter: Why America? Why right now in America?
BBJ: Because America needs it.
Does India need it?
No No. Because in America there is this whole political system which is crashing down, just crumbling down and so something spiritual must be there. When the body dies, the spirit leaves the body you see so this this program is like the spirit of America.
What's the purpose of Millenium?
The word 'millenium' means 1,000 years of peace and the purpose is to bring peace on this earth because this planet was made for peace
And what about the event in Houston?
Oh Houston is God's country. This is God's work (looks up at Astrodome roof) in God's country by God's spelling. Spelling of 'Koutek' is "KO" "Hou" "tek". Now KO is like knock-out and "hou" is Houston "hou" Houston and "tek" is Texas so KO knock out Houston Texas. It comes out very nicely.

Lord of the Universe TVTV documentary Maharaji has a dog called 'Moti' and we give bananas to the dog and cashews nuts and he eats cashew nuts, he doesn't eat meat now so if Maharaji can change that dog just by the mere presence of Maharaji the dog can be vegetarian then I think the whole world more like can receive peace. Diamonds can change.

Reporter: What do you think is the main resistance to Guru Maharaj Ji in peoples' minds?
Ignorance.
Ignorance?
Ignorance. Definitely ignorance

Lord of the Universe TVTV documentary Reporter:You say that a thousand years of peace will begin with this event?
Anybody who receives Guru Maharaj Ji's Knowledge, he enters that peace.

In South America there's a place called Columbia and there was a Mother Superior and she had a big monastery and she uh got a message and she says that two UFO's came to her and these people came out of the spaceship and they told her she should go to the ashram and receive Knowledge and then the whole church, the whole monastery came to the ashram and they were weeping, all the nuns were weeping and the Mother Superior was leading them and uh they wanted Knowledge and they wanted to serve Guru Maharaj Ji and she has written a letter to Guru Maharaj Ji saying that she hopes that the Pope will receive Knowledge and she's like completely blissed out and she's serving Maharaji in the ashram and the whole church is coming to Guru Maharaj Ji
Do you think there's any chance that the Pope will receive Knowledge?
Yes, yes this is the thing you see I think that if uh if the situation allows him then surely he'll receive Knowledge because Knowledge is for everybody. Mahatma Ji is from India. He was a very, very rich man before he took Knowledge like the Howard Hugheses of India (the Howard Hughes of India?) yes yes multi-millionaire. He left everything and then he received Knowledge.
Lord of the Universe TVTV documentary Lord of the Universe TVTV documentary If you don't receive the Knowledge can you still be peaceful?
You can more like I can say you can more like see that the peace is there. Like I have a glass of water but unlessen I unlessen I until I drink it my thirst is not quenched so more like the the glass of water is more like the peace that I see, that peace that people see but when they take it they can be part of it, they can experience it.
When people see this event on television what do you think the effect will be?
They'll be sorry that they were not here (laughter)
Anything more?
Nothing more
What's your part in general in the production?
Nothing. Nothing at all (What's your) I'm I'm no one (You're no one?) No one. Isn't it? (laughter)
What's your daily, what's your daily … what do you do every day?
Just hang around and just more like see these people and give them darshan. Yes this is it. I just hang around and give them darshans and this it it.
