His Early Life
Prem Pal Singh Rawat’s father was an Indian guru and the person who founded the Divya Sandesh Parishad that later became known as the Divine Light Mission. Upon his father’s death, he became the Satguru of the organization at the early age of eight. Five years later, he moved to the United States. Many people surrounding them became convinced of the fact that his knowledge of God should be shared with followers interested in spirituality and this is how his whole road of preaching spiritual teaching has become.
The Power Within Us
The core of his teaching is that we all have everything we need inside and that we should discover how to find fulfillment just by turning to ourselves to find the constant source of joy and peace that we need to make things work for us. He is more into direct experiences of balanced transcendence rather than focusing on any type of dogma. He believes that this can be achieved by following the main four techniques of meditation he has revealed to the world.
His technique is called the Knowledge and the main goal of everything he teaches is to help people discover their inner strength to turn their life around and feel how they should so that they might experience their real-life purpose. Powerful quotes from Christian, Muslim and Hindu sources are always present during his public speeches. However, the core focus is on the experience offered by the meditation techniques he recommends followers to adopt for guidance and inspiration.
Direct Religious Experience though the Knowledge
No formal set of techniques has been inherited by Prem Pal Singh Rawat nor has he tried to develop any of these rules that he considers to be improper and unreliable. The main claim in most of his teachings relates to the idea that God resides in each of us and that any human quest can be fulfilled by turning inward and discovering the content source of pure joy and contentment we have all been blessed with.
Equal value to all religions is given by Prem Pal Singh Rawat. He does offer valuable quotes for inspiration to his followers but does not rely on scriptures for the guidelines he offers with the purpose of helping them follow the four techniques of the Knowledge. He always says that everything we need is inside us. The real challenge is to find the way in which to discover what we have been offered by divinity so that we might fulfill our life purpose with joy.
