There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Prem Rawat is a religious teacher from India who moved to the West in 1971. His "teachings" seem to be some sort of new age woo about releasing your "inner light, love, wisdom and clarity" through meditation. He has run a religious group called, at times, 'The Divine Light Mission', 'Elan Vital', and 'DUO'.
Some people have accused him of being a cult leader and generally batshit insane.
