The purpose of this website is to provide information about Prem Rawat, his history, and his
organisations, that is not available on the official pro-Prem Rawat websites.
It is not the intention that this site should prevent anyone from having Prem Rawat as their 'Master', or from
practicing the meditation he teaches, only that if they do so it should be an informed decision.
Any significant information included here should be corroborated by at least one additional witness.
The webmaster of this website does not support, and disassociates this website from, any illegal or unethical
action by former followers of Prem Rawat in pursuit of the purpose of this website. This includes any attempt
to contact employers, clients, or business partners of any current follower, with the purpose of informing them
that the follower is a cult member; and any illegal impersonation of current followers or anyone else with the
purpose of discrediting Prem Rawat or the organisations that support his work. The webmaster believes that
Prem Rawat's own words and his actions are sufficient to discredit him.
Anyone who identifies any inaccuracies on this site, or feels they have been unfairly maligned by the
information on this site, should write to the webmaster at
This site and its contents exist for solely non-commercial educational purposes. All text, images, audio and
video content are published here under applicable "fair use" provisions where copyright may exist. Because of
the unusual situation that much of the material originally published by Divine Light Mission or Elan Vital is no
longer available from Elan Vital, and in fact has been actively suppressed to support the revisionism practised
by Prem Rawat and his followers, it has been deemed necessary to publish larger extracts, and sometimes whole
publications, to fulfill the educational aims of this site. Extracts from those publications that are still
published by Elan Vital or the Prem Rawat Foundation are appropriately small to comply with "fair use"
provisions. The webmaster of this site is willing to test his right to publish this material in any appropriate
court should any person or organisation believe their copyright has been breached.
All original work on this site, with the exception of the "Journeys" entries, is deemed
to be in the public domain and may be downloaded, republished in whole or in part, at the reader's discretion.
The "Journeys" entries remain the copyright of the authors. When reproducing any of
the original work on this site an appropriate attribution and link would be appreciated.
