Excerpts from Events


Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Berkeley University- California Berkeley University- California [02:23 min] 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.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Mann aur buddhi Mann aur buddhi [02:59 min] You can comprehend a lot of things through your brain. You've thought of God too, using your brain- that's why we have so many images of God. But the God which is omnipresent, how can you understand that God. You cannot attain peace using brain and thought-process. Peace is the topic of the heart.
Your destination is within you, and you seek it outside.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Ye Jeevan Ye Jeevan [04:41 min] Saints have said that this life is not repeatable, and you won't get it again. The way we spend our lives, seems like we'll get it again. What does it mean to you that you won't get this life another time?
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Is This it and then you Die? Is This it and then you Die? [02:23 min] Am I telling you to become a monk? No. Unless you want to.
Kabir says, "It is inside, you've to become a monk. Not outside!" Renouncing and busy showing the world that you've renounced the world!
What is emptiness? These questions- Who am I? Why am I here? Is this it, and then you die?
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Life is a Voyage Life is a Voyage [03:40 min] Just look at the facts. It seems like we are here to enjoy. Just use a little bit of logic, don't go by saying " no, no, no we are not here to enjoy, because life is so miserable and bla bla." No no.. Use facts- you are given a body, that loves to enjoy, hates pain, loves enjoyment. And you are here! So put the two and two together, and you end up with something- that wants to enjoy. So perhaps the purpose of this voyage is not pain, suffering, but to be able to experience the ultimate experience. What is the ultimate? What is the ultimate? The ultimate is that power that makes EVERYTHING possible- powers it, moves it- in the whole Universe! But the fascinating thing for us is not understanding the Universe but that which also powers the universe, happens to be within us- and this we can EXPERIENCE! Why? Coz this is where you experience the truest, truest Happiness.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Prem Rawat asked to define peace Prem Rawat asked to define peace [02:45 min] On the 23rd of May 2013, Prem Rawat spoke at the UWC Red Cross Nordic college in Flekke, Norway to an audience of students and faculty.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Why is Paris Hilton crying? funny but thought provoking "Why is Paris Hilton crying?" funny but thought provoking [07:19 min] Maharaji talks about how difficult it would be to explain to a poor Indian farmer why Paris Hilton is crying. How can she suffer when she is so rich? Because pain and suffering dont look at your bank balance, education, awards, looks, age, nationaltity. Neither does peace!
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Personal Quest Personal Quest [07:14 min] Prem Rawat talks about a personal quest for peace, “a peace not of consequences but an individual peace for every human being on the face of this earth. People want to stop wars, conflicts, but nobody addresses the individual-from where peace has to begin.”
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Something from Inside Something from Inside [05:10 min] Prem Rawat talks about the quest for peace prevalent throughout civilizations as a fundamental need of each human being. “Something from inside stirs every single day,” he says, and calls from within. “Something inside us,” he says, tell us, “Let me feel, let me experience that state in which I am not burdened with conflict.”
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - No Blind Faith No Blind Faith [05:46 min] One thing that I would like to mention to you is, you need to be fulfilled in your life. You need to have peace in your life. With me, or without me. It doesn't matter. It really does not matter. If I can help. Great! If I can't. Fine! That does not change the point. And the point is, you should be fulfilled. Thats the point. You should be in that peace, that is the point.
Logic will come, logic will change. But we are all human beings. This is what we are, this is who we are. I see rich and I see poor, and then all of a sudden, I just see people. I see educated and I see uneducated, and then all of a sudden, I see just people. Same thing, those eyes looking out to see something nice. Thats all. The ears yearning, to listen to something beautiful. This heart in everyone of us, yearning to be fulfilled.
One journey completed, one journey taken in surety. One journey made real. One life, at a time. You see, you are just like me. And I am just like you. We are both vulnerable in the same sense and we both desire the same thing, and so is our yearning, and so is our understanding, and so is our need. If we fundamentally recognize that need, then thats what it is all about.
What do I offer?
I offer knowledge.
How do you get it?
You listen and make sure that this is what you want. No blind faith. No blind faith here.
