Another Reason that Prem Rawat is the leader of a cult

I caught Seymour Hersh on C-Span the other day, interviewing Scott Ritter about how all the pre-war lies got spread leading up to the Iraq war.  One of Hersh's conclusions is that the inner cabal in the Bush administration turned into a kind of cult, ignoring actual conflicting information and proceeding with certain mind control techniques to sell the war which they believed was necessary.

Anyway, Hersh made an interesting observation, that one of the key characteristics of a cult is a huge difference in the content of internal and external communication.

This cult characteristic is HUGE in the Rawat cult as we all know.   Rawat presents himself to the outside world, as bringing peace to the world through a kind of internal discovery for the individual, but he and his followers actually believe he is a divine being, the Perfect Master and that it is his grace, and not individual effort that brings peace.  He is therefore worthy of worship and devotion. Here is an example of the dichotomy.

This is on the front page of the current TPRF website, which is the Rawat cult party line for external consumption:

Speaking at the United Nations Conference Centre in Bangkok, Thailand, he (Rawat) expressed, “Peace needs to be in everyone’s life. Of all the things we have tried in this world, there is one thing we have never given a chance. That one thing is peace. If we want to hope for something, maybe we could hope in our heart that peace will come in our life. The peace we are looking for is within. It is in the heart, waiting to be felt, and I can help you get in touch with it. It is not the world that needs peace; it is people. When people in the world are at peace within, the world will be at peace.

And this is what the cult internally believes, which is also Prem Rawat speaking in 1973, and something he has NEVER disavowed as any kind of error or misstatement:

The greatest problem all around the world today, whether in America, Japan, China, Russia, India or anywhere else in the world, is that people are not in peace. People want peace. Today, if two people fight, the government is supposed to settle them down. But when governments fight, who is going to settle them down? The only one who can settle the governments down is the Perfect Master, the incarnation of God Himself, who comes to Earth to save mankind.

Tokyo, Japan, October 3, 1972 (And it is Divine, July 1973)

Like  I said, a huge difference between internal and external consumption and part of what makes the Rawat cult, a cult.  Rawat is still the incarnation of God to himself and most of his followers, but you won't hear him tell the public about that.  Schizophrenic, to say the least.
