Maharaji currently claims that he is only a Master. On his own website at www.maharaji.org he claims that he didn't want to be a leader and that he is only an ordinary man and not God. However, please read his early satsangs and examine them for evidence of his claims to divinity. And, that debate rages on. Did he or didn't he say that he was divine - God, the Living Lord?
It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. In the picture below a young Maharaji is portrayed with a bejeweled crown on his head dressed in what is referred to as his Krishna costume. Krishna is, of course, an Indian deity thought to be God. Maharaji would rather not have you see pictures such as these because they betray his revisionist slant that he is using today to lure innocents into his personality cult.
Ask yourself, is this a picture of someone who didn't want to be a leader? Was forced to pretend to be a God, the Lord of the Universe.
No, don't let Maharaji rewrite history. Don't let him pull the wool over your eyes.
Here he is in all his glory!
