Prem Rawat's Birthday Celebrations
There can be little doubt that growing up as children of the Lord of the Universe (retired) living in cloistered luxury, surrounded by flunkies who really worship you and your parents could produce problems. In this regard you would have to give them full marks for not publicly going off the rails as so many children of fame and privilege do. Surrounded by adoring acolytes might be nice when you're young but at some point you have to come to terms with the discrepancy between what your father and his minions claim and what you can see for yourself. This is the major reason Rawat's following has not increased. Children growing up with parents who are followers of Rawat can clearly see the uselessness of the meditation and what its all about. It must be much harder for His children, money and popularity have their charms. It would appear that three of the children have joined the family business and one has not. In descending order of involvement:
Prem's 17th Birthday Party on the Queen Mary
Prem Rawat's 17th birthday, the first he celebrated without his mother and brothers. "Maharaj Ji and Durga Ji spent a quiet day together at the Los Angeles Residence. The Sunday before, Durga Ji escorted Maharaj Ji to a surprise pre-birthday celebration aboard the Queen Mary, attended by nearly a thousand premies."
Who Can Forget His Ecstasy on Getting a James Bond Aston Martin on His 20th Birthday On December 10th, 1976?
It really, really looks like Rawat is blissed out by getting that Aston Martin, but he pretends, he wouldn't care "if there would be 100,000 Aston Martins" if he was dead. And he said: "I haven't just taken the Aston Martin and put it in a garage. I have involved that in the process of Knowledge." And it's not just in a garage, it's in an 18 car garage, it's part of his fleet of over 50 cars, it's part of the process of Knowledge, premies can do service, washing the Aston Martin, keeping it in perfect condition. As he drives down the freeway Rawat imagines himself in his Aston-Martin as 001, Bond, Prem Bond, dashing devil-may-care, irresistible to ladies Secret Agent of the Universe, Lord of MI5 with a licence to save all of humanity.
