4 Days In NovemberThis video, titled 'Four Days In November', a Visions International (a division of Elan Vital Inc) release, was released in 2000. It includes footage of his meetings in Delhi, India in late 1999, the last program he appeared in during the 20th century. It's highlight is the recording of the first and probably only known public performance of Prem Rawat singing.
He duets with his daughter, Daya, in a bhajan which includes some truly awful, out-of-tune singing by him and some part singing with the large audience. Unfortunately there are only a few testimonies from premies or "students" on the video regarding this singing as they are extraordinary.
The song's lyrics are basically 'Night and Day, With You I'll Stay' repeated for 10 minutes in Hindi and English and it is a 40 megabyte download. I'm sure there are many who will consider it the highlight of their collection and it is available for download here: Night And Day" or below in parts for those with slow internet connections. Prem Rawat has never shown any of the expected beneficial effects of meditation on his health and appearance and it has been claimed by former close associates that he doesn't meditate. In this film, in this performance, we see him enjoying himself to an extent never before recorded in any of his many filmed public meetings. He is "blissed-out"! Maybe his students would be happier practising the Karaoke rather than the Knowledge.
It's certainly a shame that not more personal premie 'satsang' was recorded after this historic event. But these responses are certainly normal examples of the "expressions" of gratitude and joy that most students of Prem Rawat give afer having his darshan though they are usually not quite as inspired as they are after hearing Prem Rawat sing. Wondering about the effects of practising Maharaji's Knowledge?
It seems very unlikely that practising the techniques of meditation revealed in Maharaji's Knowledge could directly alter the artistic or aesthetic sense of Prem Rawat's devotees. It appears that their extremely enthusastic, orgiastic reaction to his dancing and public singing is conditioned by their religious faith and concepts about the supernatural qualities of his person.
Diwali, The Festival of Lights, is one of the most important Hindu religious festivals. It is not one of the 3 major Festivals celebrated by Prem Rawat and his devotees in the West. These are Hans Jayanti, Holi and Guru Puja. Here is a clip of a dance from that Diwali celebration.
