Title: Freedom of the City of London
Description: The granting of the Freedom of the City of London is an ancient ceremony, dating back to nearly 800 years. In England, the most extensive borough freedom is that conferred by the Freedom of the City of London, first recorded in 1237. It is considered the original Keys to the City upon which all other city keys are based. Prem Rawat's nomination for the freedom of the city of London was made in recoginition of the many decades he has dedicated to peace. In a rare departure from the convention, and in recognition of the importance of the event, the ceremony was held in historic Guildhall. The representatives of many humanitarian and charitable organizations were present, as well as city of London government officials, business people and International guests. Following his admmision to the freedom, Prem Rawat was invited to address the audience.
Murray Craig: The ceremony today is rather symbolic. Historically, it is of great value. We've certainly given some very interesting people, this freedom over the years. We're very glad to add you this list of fame. Nelson Mandela received this in 1996. We had Napolean Bonaparte, Florence Nightingale, and Marget thatcher too.
Craig John Murray (born 17 October 1958) is a British political activist, former ambassador to Uzbekistan and former Rector of the University of Dundee.
Deputy Richard Reagan: I'ld like to be among the first to congratulate Prem Rawat on being admitted to this freedom to city of London. I'm delighted too, sir, to welcome you. It's wonderful to share this special moment with you and your family. For those of you who are not so familiar with Prem Rawat's work. I would like to say a few words of introduction. I was privileged in 2007 to hear Prem Rawat at a very high profile event in Guildhall, at Lord Mayor's appeal. Prem Rawat's effort towards peace has been lifelong. He has dedicated himself to enguarding people all over the world, to make peace a priority in their lives. His message of peace transcends all cultures and social conditions. It's based on the importance of the individual and addressing the very nature of human beings. Prem Rawat has founded TPRF, which spreads message of peace and spearheads numerous humanitarian initiatives in collaboration with governments and other International organizations. It provides aid for people in urgent need of life sustaining resources such as food and water. For his commitment both as ambassador of peace and a promoter of humanitarian Initiatives, he has received awards in honor of his work from many Institutions in many countries. And there I say this is not the first freedom of the city, you've received, sir. Very recently you spoke at the European Parliament in Brussels at the invitation of the Vice President, to share your unique perspective of peace. I would now like you Prem to address this distinguished audience and share with us your vision of Peace and dignity. Thank you very much

Prem Rawat: I'm so pleased to join you as a fellow freeman. When I was coming here, just looking around every corner of this wonderful city which is so full of history. But even though history is so fascinating, if we look at it, there's a pattern. Their is a pattern of peace, there's a pattern of war, and there's a pattern of people wanting properity, and there's pattern of people being squashed. What does that mean? Einstein said something wonderful. He said, while defining Insanity, is to keep doing the same thing and expect different results. For such a long time, I feel, that people of this world keep doing the same thing and hoping and praying for absolutely different results. And that's what I wanna bring your attention to!
Guildhall has been used as a town hall for several hundred years, and is still the ceremonial and administrative centre of the City of London and its Corporation. The term Guildhall refers both to the whole building and to its main room, which is a medieval-style great hall. The current building was begun in 1411AD. During the Roman period, it was the site of an amphitheatre, the largest in Britannia.

Title: Finding Home
Description: What I'm offering is not “Let's imagine a mango” No. Here is the mango. Here, have a bite; taste it. That's what I offer. So the prepare becomes seeing that home as it is. The preparation becomes really really preparing yourself to see it with your eyes. Not somebody's else's explanation. Thirst- it's there. It needs to be discovered. Knowledge is there- it needs to be discovered.
I'm here to help. To help facilitate that process. I get to hold the mirror up, you get to see. The answers are within you. And so far you've become very good at formulating questions. Now let help you to accept answers that come from within you.
The art of coming home.
Have you seen an ant? If you've seen one ant, you've seen all ant. There they are, always going about their business. They get a little concerned when you come around, because you may step on them or something. And they go places to find food. But there's one thing that is really remarkable about the little ant. This tiny little ant may venture all over the place (And your lawn is like big thick jungle for the little ant) And it goes wherever it has to go. But there is one thing very special- and that is this ant knows how to get back home. For this ant, it is really really important. Got to get back home. Think about that. Wherever it goes, whatever it does, it does everything to remember how to get back home.
Do you know how to get back home? Because if you have mastered the art of going out but not coming back, then it is a half the mastery. It's kind of one-way experiment. And people to that- make the list; this is what I want in my life. Fine. Go and do whatever you have to do. I'm not the one who will tell you what you should and shouldn't do. But a piece of good advice, do you know how to get back home? Where is your home?

Title: Berkeley University- California
Description: Speaking to a distinguished set of guests, faculty and the students at University of California, Berkeley, Maharaji said:
What I am talking about is very very simple. In a way it's about you. But not in a way that you have heard it before because people come and address other people. And what is talked about is how it could be. And I am not here to talk about that. What I have to talk about is, How it is!
Everything that you need to make the dream come true, you already have. It is within you. And this is a wonderful and exciting reality. Recognize what you have been given.
I am not here to tell you how to lead your life. What I am here to tell you do whatever you have to but do not forget the thirst of your heart. Don't forget your innate call. Don't forget your own nature of who you are. Don't forget the gem of a treasure that you have been given. Find the unchangeable and you too can enjoy this ride of life like you never imagined.

Title: NSU - Nova Southeastern University
Description: At an event which took place at Nova Southeastern University, Maharaji addressed the students, faculty and a distinguished set of guests. Maharaji said:
People ask me, "Can you make a impact?" I don't know. But I know I can go to people and tell them that what they are looking for is inside of them. The joy that they are looking for is inside of them. And yes, peace is possible. It begins with each one of us, it does not begin with nations, and it does not begin with giant institutions.
People always have this perception, somebody else will bring me peace. When you start to know that- I need peace in my life and let it begin with me. That is the day when we are going to see a profound change, a change of attitude, a change in the way we perceive things. That when we begin to take our responsibilities, that yes the thirst is within me.
When we need to cross a desert, the problem is not the desert, the problem is the availability of water. If I carry the water within me, as so eloquently said by a person a long time ago. "The fish is thirsty in the water, and every time I hear that, it makes me laugh." Water everywhere, wherever you go, you carry that well of peace with you. Wherever you go, you carry that treasure of joy with you. You have to know how to drink that, have to know how to dig into that. There is a beautiful possibility not by subtracting but by adding.
In his whole world all the things that we do are zeroes and what I offer is one. If you place the zeroes in front of one, all you have is a bunch of zeroes. If you place the one ahead of the zeroes, then you will have a thousand, and a million and a trillion and so on. For me this is an opportunity to present my observation. If you see a thirst in your life- I can help.
Live your life a little consciously. Be thankful for this life. There is one thing in this world that is abundant, and there is one thing that will be there till the very end. This is the breath. Understand the value of this breath.
I have nothing to sell to you. There is nothing to buy. The only thing is remember this life, just remember your thirst and when you feel the thirst, look me up.

Title: Oxford University, United Kingdom
Description: What I have to talk about is really quite simple. It deals with one human being- one person, one individual, who breathes, thinks, wants to understand, wants to learn. Sometimes, in the pursuit of all that we pursue in this world, we forget about us. Who am I? Who are you? You are unique. There is no one like you. I cannot emphasize enough the uniqueness of every human being on the face of this earth.
Learning is a process that will happen for every single person. This is our nature. Learning will happen, but amongst all the things we learn, what is the most important thing to learn? Millions have come through these gates to learn, understand, and go on in their lives to be successful and prosperous. But there is one kind of prosperity that was talked about a very, very long time ago: Know thyself.
