|The Rawat Belief System -- Excellent list from Billy|
The new website, www.prem-rawat-maharaji.info does a good job cutting to the root of the belief system that Rawat peddles, while all the time claiming there is no belief system. The website points out that the two, required, beliefs are:
1. That each individual has an 'inner world' which is a source of secret reward...which is an "ill defined mystical reality." and
2. That Prem Rawat uniquely, has the power to take the individual to that 'inner world' and that it is impossible to get there unaided by Prem Rawat.
But as we all know, there are a lot more, and "billy" down below has an excellent list of many of them. His post is great starting point for ex-premies to compile the Rawat "belief system" and maybe there can be some permanent place for it on EPO. Here is billy's excellent list, which is great because it also exposes a number of contradictions.
That man is 'complete' and needs no 'embellishment'
That the 4 techniques are keys to unlock the door to the infinite, unchanging, ultimate Truth.
That the thirst is there within and so is the water.
That God can manifest in a human body to save mankind.
That Truth is 'simple.'
That there is a True Self.
That mind is the creation of man and is therefore 'bad' and must becontrolled by Holy Name.
That mind is the creation of God and therefore cannot be controlled.
That the love between devotee and Master is 'unconditional' and is the highest form of love.
That the love between man and wife, man and child, man and friend are conditional and therefore not as valuable.
That when man finds peace within there will be peace in this world.
That you can trust your heart but not your mind.
That Knowledge is not selfish.
That this Knowledge is the same Knowledge that Jesus gave, that Krishna gave, that Mohammed gave.
That there is only ever one True Master in this world.
That what you are looking for is within you.
That everything you see with these eyes is illusion, except Maharaji.
That in one lifetime our 'evolution' can be completed.
That what matters is the 'journey' and not the destination.
That if God had manifested Himself one year later it would have been too late.
That as soon as you receive Knowledge your karmas are finished.
That there is a purpose to human life and that the purpose is : to have faith in Maharaji, to be happy, to find inner peace....
That you are perfect but made imperfect by the mind.
That as soon as a man takes Knowledge he is liberated.
That devotion means living without suffering, no suffering at all.
That if you don't practice this Knowledge you will get rotten inside.
That Grace is necessary to make Knowledge active.
That through the Knowledge you can become one with God.
That the more you meditate the higher you get and then you join that frequency where you become infinite.
That man who is just perfect in meditation does not do a wrong action.
That Maharaji is permanently in God consciousness.
That Knowledge is infinite and Maharaji has not reached the pinnacle of it.
That the people who are most receptive to Maharaji's message are people who are 'free in what they think'
Great list, no? Thanks to billy for putting that together, and for whom I have a suggestion of just one word: "paragraphs."
