He used and abused her, as he did with all his followers.
This book encouraged many (former) 3HO members
who suffered from Yogi Bhajan's abuse and misconduct
to share their own stories after keeping silent for decades.
In the history records of 3HO - Sikh Dharma
the publicaton of Premka will appear as a major milestone.
... So right then and there a spontaneous prayer was evoked...
a passionate plea to God for the stamina to withstand whatever challenges might come.
I resolved to defy, to override, my rational mind, to disregard my own intuitive voice, to dedicate myself to following this spiritual teacher wherever he might lead me.

What reading Premka did to GuruNischan ...
Mani Niall recognized in this book the patterns of YB's misconduct as he had experienced
it in his own 'small' role.
Bhajan lied to the women he was having sex with, telling them that he was having sex with them to resolve their Karma. Extract from Premka (p. 68):
There was another story he loved to tell me, “In a past life, you were a Temple Priestess in Burma, and I was a celibate monk in that temple. The Temple Priestess is also the ruler of the country, and she does not take a husband because she is the Sovereign. Rather she just chooses any man whenever she wants to have sex. You used to taunt me and try to make me to break my vows of celibacy. In this lifetime, I am just settling this past karma.” What a strange concept. It was painfully confusing.
I would plead with him: “But sir, I really am fine without sex. I would really prefer to be celibate. I don’t want to have this conflict and confusion. I always feel torn because you’re my teacher and you have a wife, and you’re teaching everyone to be either celibate or married. I would really prefer to just serve you as a devotee.” I desperately wanted to be free of the torment, of the duality of our relationship. It seemed to me that life would be so much simpler, so much more pure and perfect if it didn’t have this confusing complication. These conversations always ended in his laughing at me, rocking his head from side to side, Indian style, saying, “Na, na, you cannot live without it, I know that.”
