I was going to make a comment in the Indymedia (link below) this morning but I noticed that "One-Reality" has already posted links there to his website of the same name. So, I didnt find it necessary to comment. I also noticed that PWKs or premies are using Indymedia to express their adoration for Prem Rawat.
I think you're wrong

Mr. Webmaster you are so wrong about the Indian custom stuff being brought over by Indians. I personally know of 2 american premies who were with Maharaji in India before he came to the west told us about how to receive darshan and how to get holy breath and all. They were not Indians. They explained how this was proper devotion to the satguru who is the perfect master. American premies embraced the darshan ritual and we all benefitted. There was a time when Maharaji was not allowing us to kiss his feet. That was the dark night of my soul. I was so happy for the opportunity to do it again. I would crawl across the ocean for another chance to catch a glimpse of his smile, let alone kiss the feet of the One who saved me.
Why can't we appreciate Maharaji for who he is?

I've had the experience of "Knowledge" that Maharaji teaches since 1975. I meditate every day on the techniques of "Knowledge". I thoroughly enjoy the inner peace that I feel from meditating. It is an incredibly wonderful experience that words cannot describe.
Maharaji is a very important person in my life.
These disgruntled former devotees of Maharaji have missed the point. They claim that Maharaji has said that he was God, but they really didn't understand what he was really saying.
I'm not sure how I would categorize Maharaji, but if there was a God on this planet he would be teaching the very same "Knowledge" that Maharaji teaches.
Please try to understand what Maharaji has to offer before you judge him. Seek and ye shall find.
