Satpal Maharaji: Satguru and Father, Godman, Grey Eminence, Minister of State, etc
The Future Looks Bright for Continuing Success of the Rawat Family Business into the Third Generation
According to the authorised biography of Hans Ji Maharaj, the creator of the Rawat family business, had predicted:
In December 1954 a procession for Shri Satpal Maharaj was held, starting from the Red Fort in Delhi. Hari Ram, Behari Lal and the Delhi premies organized it. A magnificent float had been constructed. Shri Maharaj Ji, Shri Mata Ji and Shri Bhole Ji were, to follow in the car. Because of the crowd, the car had difficulty reaching the float. Shri Mata Ji was uneasy at first, but Shri Maharaj Ji only said, "He was born for this. Thousands upon thousands will follow him." He lifted Shri Satpal Ji out of the car and placed him on the float. He blessed him and with his own hands placed a crown on his head. - The Light Of Wisdom, Shri Hans Ji Maharaj, Life And Teachings
Well that was at least one prediction that came true. Since 1974 Satpal (formerly Bal Bhagwan Ji) has enjoyed a successful career as a politician, a family man with two sons, the Godman head of a large spiritual organisation with millions of devotees. He has continued and expanded the work of his father and mother and is a powerful figure in Uttarhakand. He has publicly listed assets worth $US20 million.
More importantly he has two sons working in the family business and both have married into the Indian ruling class/caste.
- Shraddhey (Shri Vibhu) is working in the spiritual side of the family affairs and married in a huge and flashy festival.
- Suyesh is working in the business and political (is there any difference in India?) side of the family affairs and married a princess and TV star. Their wedding was attended by Norendra Modi, the Prime Minister (and maybe the Supreme Leader) of India.
Bhole Ji's Hanslok Ashram and Hans Foundation Look Set To Thrive
With daughter, Shweta, at the helm of the Hans Foundation the future looks bight. With Shivani Rawat honing her skills in Hollywwod we can ook forward to a huge multi-generational, multi-cultural Bollywood Rawat Family historical epic starring Mini-Me as Prem or possibly a Rawat Family Reality show or a version of Big Brother with the Rawats in the house or she can produce a great gangster movie, the Godmanfather.
