Was Prem Rawat Disowned and Disinherited by his Mother?
Yes, Prem Rawat's mother did disown and disinherit her youngest son and he did sue her and his eldest brother to gain control of his father's property and lost. They never met again, his children didn't meet their grandmother, he did not attend her funeral. The brothers' web sites do not mention each other.1 2 3
On the surface that is a sordid story that would convince most people that Prem Rawat was a charlatan whose Knowledge was worthless in realising love and peace in a family or individual. But his followers believe it shows that the Knowledge of the Perfect Master is not a set of beliefs that one must learn but a living experience without which even the closest family members or the most devoted mother can understand the life of a Perfect Master. Prem Rawat has said he is always in God-consciousness but that his mother had religious beliefs.
Some expressions of love between Prem Rawat and his wife, Marolyn Johnson, that infuriated his mother.
Most of the Indian premies and virtually all of the mahatmas obeyed Mata Ji and Bal Bhagwan Ji (who, after a protracted court case, won ownership of the name and property of Divine Light Mission in India). The young Maharaji had said the Indian premies "are lost in illusion" in his famous "Peace Bomb" Satsang. The young Western premies either rejected both sides or accepted they were witnessing a lila - literally 'game of God'.
