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 - 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 - This Is Your Life This Is Your Life [07:13 min] Prem Rawat asks, “Is there something more to you than the sum of all that you see? Is there something more to you than the sum of everything you project?”
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 - Do you find Coffee Trendy? Do you find Coffee Trendy? [08:21 min] This is excerpt from Event in Portland, US; a city of coffee enthusiasts.
Everywhere you go here, you find Coffee shop, coffee shop, coffee shop! Portland's best coffee, smoothest coffee, best smoothest coffee. Don't take me wrong, not like I hate coffee, but give me a break! Why? it's a trend!

Who needs the trend? Those who cannot think for themselves, needs others to think for them. And then merely copy if it suits them or if enough people are doing this, "I want to be normal".

I'm an avid coffee drinker too. And it all started one day. I din't used to drink coffee. That was in San Francisco. I was in Studio in morning and it was freezing cold. Because when they turn on the lights it gets warm, so they set the AC to really cold temperature. So I'm standing there shivering. Finally one of the producers walked by, looked at me, and said "Why don't you drink some coffee, at-least it is hot. That's when it started."

So for me, it's not a question of trends. Knowledge has never been trendy, never. It's been amazing. And I'll tell you something. Take it for what it's worth. I'm trying to push anything, but this is how it is. Within you is the Kingdom of heaven. It almost starts to sound like somebody read one book and everybody said "Great!". Except, nobody read this book, because it comes from the heart. That is it's beauty. It's not a trend, it's true. So many things become trendy, but this breath doesn't become trendy, this is the real thing. When has breath become trendy? But not once did it make "The 10 best list"!
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Prem Rawat in Miami, Florida, June 2010 Prem Rawat in Miami, Florida, June 2010 [02:16 min] This event was held in June 2010 at Miami in Florida, US. Using various examples, Maharaji spoke about advice and understanding where it comes from; about how to follow the heart in order to make the best decisions; and what it takes to embark on the road to peace. Throughout, he returned to his main themes: what it means to be truly wealthy; to be fulfilled; to be content; to be full of joy. What it means, in short, to be alive.
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.
