Practice Peace and Change the Life

Prem Rawat *



Have you ever dreamt of a world where there are no conflicts, the world where individuals value each other's existence and live in peace & harmony?

Peace is what every individual alive on this planet desires to perceive, despite his status, religion, caste or creed. But the fundamental question is "what is peace"?

The idea and definition of peace may vary with each individual; however it is something that is cherished by each one of us. With all the chaos around the world, is it possible to attain the same?

Even without the question the answer is within you. The world doesn't need peace; people do and the peace that we want is within us. Peace dances in the heart of every human being, but people are not at peace because people are not being in touch with themselves, not knowing who they are.

As human beings, we have a need-not a need created by society, but a fundamental need to be fulfilled, to be in peace. But what is peace? Something that is not born of thought, but felt. Something that resides in the ocean of answers, not in the ocean of questions. Peace is not the absence of noise. Peace is not the absence of war. It is from the hearts of human beings that peace will be achieved.

People ask, "If peace is so simple, how come we don't have peace in this world?" It's a very important question. Everybody has his or her own interpretation of what peace is. We don't recognize peace as something that is as universal as the Sun. We don't recognize peace as something as essential as water and air. Peace is a need that has to be satisfied, not in thought, but in the heart of every human being.

Just like it is good to talk about food, but it is better to eat food. Just like it is good to talk about water, but it is better to drink water; same way it is good to talk about peace, but it is much better to actually feel peace.

If we can make such a mess out of the earth—if we have that much power—then certainly we also have the power to bring peace. The question remains whether we want to do it or not—because peace begins with every one of us. It is individual human being who desires peace. It is individual human being who needs peace.

This is what Prem Rawat, an International speaker says on the subject of Personal Peace, who is attracting audiences from all walks of life. The honorary title of "Ambassador of Peace" has been bestowed upon him by Governmental and Academic Institutions because of his ability to inspire audiences to see personal peace as a possibility for all.

His efforts to bring this message to as many people in the world as possible, is supported by The Prem Rawat Foundation. The foundation works towards addressing fundamental human needs of food, water and peace, like Food for People program at Bantoli in Ranchi, donation in disaster relief at Uttarakhand, Nepal etc. The excerpts of Prem Rawat's message have been recorded and printed, are easily available online at www.timelesstoday.com and www.rajvidyakender.org

About the author

Prem Rawat is an internationally renowned speaker who presents a fascinating and practical perspective about the 'Business of life'. Asking the question "What does real success, prosperity and happiness actually look like?", Prem Rawat provides a uniquely challenging view to the status quo. As the world advances globally in every sphere Prem asks "Are human beings really thriving, achieving their true potential, or are we just surviving?".

Addressing The Young President's Organization in Europe on the subject of "How do we become better Leaders?", Prem said, "We talk about the need for prosperity. In my formula, prosperity without human contentment is chaos."

Prem sees human happiness as not just a possibility but a critical need for everyone. Without it, however good we become in business, however apparently successful we become in our careers, we will remain unfulfilled.

What we are now seeing in the world says Prem is the result of the lack of human contentment, including wars, environmental destruction, greed, violence and social ills, all of which can be avoided provided humanity is in touch with itself. His recently published book "Splitting the Arrow - Understanding the Business of Life" addresses key aspects of understanding life better, using the powerful medium of story-telling.

The honorary title "Ambassador of Peace" has been granted to Prem Rawat by a number of governmental and academic institutions because of his ability to inspire global audiences. He receives hundreds of invitations every year to speak internationally. These include prestigious forums like the European Parliament, United Nations, UK, Australian, Italian Parliaments and universities including Harvard, Oxford, California, IIT Delhi and ISB Hyderabad etc. He has also spoken at many prisons including Tihar Jail, New Delhi to help improve the quality of life for inmates and reduce re-offending.

Humanitarian Efforts

In 2001, Prem Rawat started 'The Prem Rawat Foundation' (TPRF) with a mission to address the fundamental human needs of food, water and peace. TPRF's -Food for People, is an innovative program that provides nutritious meals to children and ailing adults in India, Nepal and Ghana.

The Foundation's signature Peace Education Program is a unique soft skills based training program providing practical steps by which individuals can experience personal contentment. The program is used in 70 countries.

Awards & Recognition Prem has received keys to over 20 cities around the world and numerous awards in recognition of his work. In 2012, he was awarded the 'Asia Pacific Brand Laureate Lifetime Achievement Award' and joined the illustrious company of the late Nelson Mandela and Hillary Clinton as the 4th recipient of the award.
