Prem Rawat - Maharaji - A Basic Necessity A Basic Necessity [27:00 min] Prem Rawat speaks about peace as not just an absence of conflict, but as a state of being. He suggests that although people look different on the outside, everyone is searching for the same thing. He says that one can feel peace every day, and the way to find it is to turn within.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - The Truest Celebration The Truest Celebration [28:00 min] A nature of a human being, Prem Rawat says, is to search, even if what we are searching for is undefined. But when we know what we are searching for, we can begin to accept that it is within us. And then, Rawat says, that is the day a human being can truly begin to live life as a celebration.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - The Call of the Heart The Call of the Heart [28:04 min] What is this breath? What is this life? What is this existence? When I have it, I have everything and when I do not have it, I do’nt even have nothing. And when I have it, I do not have to earn it, I have it. And what do I have? And the world goes, always what you could have.
Every advertisement, every sign, that you see, is about what you could have. Not what you need! There are no advertisements for peace and the world says to you that if you want to be happy, this is what you should do. But it never shows you, that this is the person who did all this and he was happy, No. Its a formula the world gives you and there is no equals sign at the end. It is just a formula. What does it equal? What does it produce? What does it do? Nobody knows. Do all of this, do all of that. And mind you, I am not criticizing anything. What I am saying is the "Key ingredient" missing in all that which is happening in the world is "you". Because in your life, you have all your responsibilites, but do you also take the responsibility of recognizing this breath which has been given to you.
I am sure all of you would have gone to beautiful concerts, and enjoyed them. You must have enjoyed beautiful symphonies playing. I am sure you must have heard a lot of lectures and discussed them, over a cup of coffee. Now let me ask you a question. Have you heard the call of your heart? Because if ever there was a poetry written, no poetry was written as sweet as "The call of the heart". If there ever was a perfect lecture, then it is the lecture of the heart. And if there is a voice that is sweet, then it is the voice of the heart. And if there was a song, that was most beautifully sung, then it is the song of the heart. Listen to it. Pay attention. Because something wonderful is happening in your life, something sweet is manifesting in your life. Listen to what is being said. Listen to this request, about peace, about joy, about being fulfilled. Not tomorrow, not day after tomorrow. But now.
There is a beautiful saying, that to see a reflection in the water, you need the pond or the lake or the surface of the water to be still. Then when you look, you see yourself. But if the water is rough, you look but you do’nt see yourself. Knowledge is just that, knowledge is like the mirror and in that mirror I won’t see other peoples faces. I would see mine. It is very true that the mirror needs to be of a quality that when I see my reflection, it should be accurate. It becomes so important that the mirror is clean so that I can see my true reflection in it. That is knowledge.

Prem Rawat - Maharaji - The Oldest Dream- at University of Salamanca The Oldest Dream- at University of Salamanca [24:00 min] The University of Salamanca is the oldest university in Spain; founded in 1218 by King Alfonso IX, it was acknowledged in 1254 by Pope Alexander IV as being one of the four great Universities in the world. It has had many distinguished professors throughout its history, including Luis de Letan, Beatriz de Galindo, Melchor Cano, Francisco de Vitoria and Miguel de Unamuno and many well known citizens have walked along the University corridors, like Miguel de Cervantes, Hernando Cortes and Christopher Columbus.
Speaking at the University of Salamanca, Maharaji addressed distinguished guests, faculty and students. He said:
When you look at an ocean and you see that the river has carved this huge gorge. How do you think it happened? I will tell you how it happened. It happened drop by drop. That is the conviction that we too need in our lives. The knowledge of all things will be complete, when the knowledge of self is included in that knowledge. That one statement made by Socrates long ago, does not remain something to discuss, but becomes a reality. I travel the world; I bring this message to people. All I am doing is bringing this possibility, peace is important to me. And I hope that peace is important to you because after all when I look at the horizon and I have to imagine the world without peace, which indeed is a very grim prospect. When I see the light in the horizon, I certainly hope it is the light of peace that dances waiting to shine, in my life, in my time.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Freedom of the City of London Freedom of the City of London [34:47 min] 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.

The Young Leaders Forum of the Indian Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce invited Maharaji to address a distinguished audience of 1,850 business and government leaders. Maharaji talks about the one-year-old that is still within us with the same request and wish it always had, to be fulfilled.

Today, everybody is interested in peace. For the peace that I want to talk to you about is the peace that we need even when there is no war. I am here to tell you remove the word "war", let's talk about of peace. Peace resides in the heart of human beings, not in the mind. For you to see your reflection in water, the water must be still because if the water is moving you will not be able to see your reflection. Your heart should be still. The very nature of mind is to escape any imprisonment.

Kabir das ji said,
"Hai ghat mein par door batawein, door ki baat nirasi.
Kehat kabeer suno bhai saadho,
guru bin bharam na jaasi.
Mohe sun sun aawe haansi."

He thinks its humourous because a fish that is surrounded by water is thirsty. I agree. I conquer, I think that is so. That this fish is looking for the very thing that is inside.
Within you is that joy that you are looking for. Within you is that peace that you are looking for. Within you are the answers, not the questions.

You know the right tool for the right job. Right spices for the right food. And when it comes to the subject of inner contentment we try to pick the most sublime. Try to understand the most sublime, the most incredibly tender and the most incredibly infinite, with the most finite tool we have(points to mind). Let me figure this out. How am I going to pick it up, how my mind is going to grasp. People tell me, don't tell me my mind is finite. Oh, but it is. Let me remind you, it is the same mind that had people believing that earth was the center of the universe and everything went around it and people actually believed it.
Peace is not absence of war. The war needs to be stopped within each one of us. That is good; it is much better when you stop fighting with yourself.
If you want peace look no further than yourself. Accept the fact that what you are looking for is within you. If you have the thirst and you need water, I can help.
