Excerpts from Events


Prem Rawat - Maharaji - A Reminder A Reminder [00:56 min] A perspective changing, hope giving, life changing reminder in few seconds.
Prem Rawat asserts, "what you are looking for, is within you. And if you want it, I can help."
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 - The Want for Peace The Want for Peace [05:07 min] Where did the idea of peace come from? The want for peace has been on the face of this earth as long as there have been human beings, the need for peace was identified a long time ago and a very open formula was also presented to the world a long time ago and the formula said "Peace then Prosperity".

The need for peace comes from within you. It is not an intellectual peace. Peace is a desire of your heart. Because in you lies the possibility of peace. The face of peace is none other than yourself when you are in peace. Peace does not belong to any nation or society or religion. Peace belongs to people, like you and me and the peace will manifest in the cathedral of your heart. That is the only pure place that is.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - The Miracle Is Existence The Miracle Is Existence [06:49 min] Prem Rawat talks about the miracle of life. “The most beautiful miracle is: from nowhere comes this breath and brings the gift of life to you. This is your story. One breath at a time. That’s your beat. That’s your rhythm. Do you understand what a miracle this is?”
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Journey of a Lifetime Journey of a Lifetime [06:13 min] Prem Rawat talks about the journey that is each person’s lifetime. Ideas may change, he says, but the breath keeps coming and bringing life. And while people pray for a sign, their prayers have already been answered, he says: “Another day… and this little vessel has been put on this river to make this journey.”
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.

Prem Rawat - Maharaji - A singular focus A singular focus [02:25 min] Prem Rawat speaking in Washington, D.C., USA
The question becomes- Is the focus to have that joy to have that joy in this life. Is the focus to be content and fulfilled? Or is the focus in bewilderment.
What you do entertain as a thought every single day? Gratitude? Or I wonder what happens next! Bewilderment will not bring you gratification. Never has, never will. Knowing, feeling, experiencing- will!
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - The Promises You Made The Promises You Made [08:53 min] Prem Rawat talks about the wants we have had since we were children and the promises we made to ourselves to fulfill them. “Have you kept them?” he asks. “Look within you for the thirst,” he says, “because it is the thirst that will lead you to water. Understand what you have been given because it is magnificent.”
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - The Balancing Rod The Balancing Rod [09:16 min] This is an excerpt from an event held in Tokyo, Japan.

Last night I was thinking that eventually, one of the fates that we all have to go through is that this existence comes to an end and when this existence comes to an end, what actually comes to an end, that ends it?

Its actually a very simple and a very profound process. And the three things that dance in this balance, the breath, the consciousness and then nothing. You see, in truth, we are this breath, we are this consciousness. If this is taken away from us, we are nothing, nothing.

Some people say, that this life is like walking a tight rope, and this is the one I like. Tight rope, point A, point B, just a rope. Go from here to here. Whats here? Whats here? Whats on this side? Whats on the other side?

Now, thats what I like to talk about. So, a person finds themselves in ignorance and they yearn knowledge. Thats the other side. A person finds themselves in the doubt, person yearns clarity, thats on the other side. A person finds themselves in pain, then they yearn joy. You see its no mistake, its not a mistake.

And when we feel the pain, thats the reaction. Get me out! Away, not into, but away from the pain. That is wisdom. You want to know what wisdom is, thats wisdom. Its the wisest thing that is, that you suffer and you want to come out of the suffering.

What am I made out of, these atoms, these molecules running around. Do you think they are any different than an egg plant? Do you think so? No! Some came together made that egg plant, some came together made me. Now you think there is a difference between me and the egg plant. Thats the great mystery. Because some people are walking egg plants. These egg plants can talk, and these egg plants can walk. But there is no difference. They came empty handed into this world they are going to leave empty handed in this world. They do not know the difference between joy and sorrow. They do not know the difference between knowledge and ignorance. They do not know the difference between darkness and light. And like the silly dog that tries to chase its own tail. Like the silly dog that looks at the mirror and barks at its own reflection. Thats the way they are.

Not passing judgement. So, be it, choice has been given. You can be a walking egg plant. It is perfectly acceptable. Whether it is acceptable to your heart? Whether it is acceptable to your nature? Thats out of the story. And you have to feel in your life, the urge to walk this rope.

But if you do decide, get a balancing rod, cause you gonna need it. Something to balance. Why? Because the gravity is going to be saying, "You down here." Your heart is saying, "Me over there." And gravity will say, "You down here."

To overcome, you need the balancing rod. To stabilize you. Why? Because you will make mistakes. And when you do, this balancing rod will take the mount. When you start to lose your balance, you can lean with this balancing rod and it will help bring your balance back in. However, each step that you take must be precise and deliberate.

You are not left without the tools. To create the urge, you have been given the thirst. To push you along this journey you have been given a heart. And to take each step, precisely, so you may do that, you have been given consciousness. And if you do decide to take this little trip, then there is no greater balancing rod than this knowledge. Because this knowledge is the most beautiful, most stable balancing rod there is. And so take it.

There are people who want to give you scenarios, why you should do this. The real master will tell you, how you can do this.
