Excerpts from Events


Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Feeling the Need for Peace Feeling the Need for Peace [05:11 min] Prem Rawat talks about the universal need for peace. “Not as a society,” he says, “but as an individual. I strongly believe that it is the individual that has to understand what peace is. And feel that need in their lives. Then and only then can we begin to see the movement towards peace, because the foundation is solid.”
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Desperate for Peace Desperate for Peace [04:45 min] "Have you ever felt desperate for peace?" Maharaji asks. He talks about how people often hide their need for peace planning for tomorrow, for their favorite day to come. But that one day, he says, can only come as today.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Is there something worth appreciating? Is there something worth appreciating? [06:00 min] When we go to a restaurant and your bread is not warm, you say to the waiter "I would appreciate if you could bring me warm bread"
We use appreciate for every small thing, say if someone brings you glass of water, you go: "I appreciate that!"

Do you know what appreciation is? Do you have any idea what appreciation is?
Regardless of your age, this is one of the things that will not change- Appreciation! Even when you're 90 years old and you can't see so well. When your glasses are like binoculars!
The power of appreciation is not going to change. Hone in on it. Last year I was in Portland and I was coming back to the hotel after doing an event. I was looking out of the window, and there was this couple. For whatever reason, they were homeless and they laid down their bed in front of a shop. And she had biggest smile on her face. And I was like "Wow! You've lost everything. You're going to sleep outside and you're smiling!" - Appreciation!
Was that something she was looking forward too? to lose the home and sleep outside? Whatever the reason was- she was able to be happy and appreciate. That is the power of appreciation!

Is there something that is truly worth appreciating? And the answer is: Yes!
What is it? It is this moment in which this breath arrives. It is worth appreciating. The moment that you understand the simplicity of this existence, then it is worth appreciating. The moment you realize your desire to be fulfilled, then this is worth appreciating.
There is nothing you can do to remove the desire to be fulfilled. Nothing!
Your desire to be fulfilled.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - The sweetest and simplest place The sweetest and simplest place [02:23 min] All my dreams have come true.
I still dream of other things but all my dreams have come true . Because I am alive, because I exist.
This in the sweetest and most simplest way becomes my home, you are at home! This is your home, this existence is your home.
Be in that serenity!
Be in that contentment!
Be in that joy. For the person who is singing, which note can he sing on? For the person who is playing the piano, which note has he a license to play an off-key? "None!"
On a piano it is not about the keys that are not played, it is about the keys that are played.
Enhance those keys should be that the sound that comes evokes the feelings that it should evoke!
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 - What is the Source of Your Inspiration? What is the Source of Your Inspiration? [03:44 min] In this clip, Prem Rawat known commonly as Maharaji questions what the source of inspiration is in this life, suggesting that existence itself should be the inspiration in a persons life. TPRF has setup free food for poor children in Oxnard
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 - Made to Enjoy Made to Enjoy [09:09 min] Who are you? What are you? What is this body all about? You try to make this body comfortable. What do you do when you go buy a shoe? You put them on! And then you walk, WHY? To make sure that these shoes have not been worn before? You walk in those shoes to make sure they are comfortable! So we spend a lot of time, a lot of energy to make sure our body is externally comfortable. Do we also spend that time to make sure that our life, our existence is internally comfortable or do we learn how to live with disparity, with anger and confusion? This is dirt! And you spend so much time making dirt comfortable. Why? Because this is how you are made. It is important for self-preservation of this body that it does not like pain. Something hot, "Reaction", because it does not like pain. What have we done in our lives to make ourselves comfortable within? This dirt moves, it talks, it sees, it smells, it tastes, why? And not only does it smell, it likes to smell that that brings it joy. Seeing- what does it like to see, that what brings you enjoyment. This is how you are. This is who you are. Make no mistake. Your existence wants to be fulfilled. What does your heart want to do. It wants to enjoy and what can your heart enjoy, this is the question.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - The Ultimate Question The Ultimate Question [06:22 min] The Ultimate Question, How are you? You get that question too many times, so you do not think about it. But become patient, you want to be learned? You want to become knowledgeable? Ask that question to yourself. How are you? And listen to the answer, don’t think. When you have to say to someone, who asks you the question of, how are you? You say, I am fine, thank you. Thats easy to say. It does’nt matter. You can be tired. You can be miserable. Somebody comes over and says, how are you? You say, I am fine. In reality, that's stupidity. But also, do you really want to explain your troubles to an unknown person? That would be stupidity too. The question, in my opinion. How are you, is meant for you and you should ask that to yourself.
So, How are You? Are you thankful?
Are you in that state of bliss?
Are you enjoying that gift of knowledge?
Is your desert, in full bloom? Three hundred and sixty-five days per year, seven days a week, full bloom. That beautiful aroma in the perfume of fresh flowers. Does it really permeate your life? Do you feel blessed? Do you feel content? Accept, and let that grace bring the rain to your desert. Grace to me is just that, those big billowing clouds coming. Grace is that wind, that turned and where it is dry, brings that moisture and then it can begin to rain. To feel blessed, because you are. So, you should feel blessed. You should feel graced because you have grace in your life.
Be patient and the troubles, they come and let the wind of grace sweep them away. Is that upto me? Yes. Don’t hang on, let go. Hang on to that column, hang on to that garland, hang on to that pillar of breath that comes in and out of you. If you do, nothing can break that link. Enjoy, because you have been given so much to enjoy. Learn, because so much is being taught to you. And above all, be patient and then watch this dance of life unfold. It will unfold. It is going to unfold. Oh, you will see things you have never seen before and hopefully this cup of this heart will get larger and larger and larger. That is its nature. Let it be filled more.
