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 - The Pivotal Question The Pivotal Question [01:17 min] Is peace a manifestation of something which is happening inside a human being or is peace something on the outside only and this is where we have to slow down because the definitions are abundant. But what is peace, where does the desire for peace come from? The desire for peace is innate to every single human being on the face of this earth. This question, in my opinion is the pivotal question.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Ask yourself Will today be the day? Ask yourself "Will today be the day?" [01:33 min] I know you have asked yourselves so many questions, and so many questions will still come your way. But ask yourselves this question one day, when you really feel like it- Will today be the day that I will feel peace?
Will today be the day I will feel immeasurable joy?
Will today be the day that I will understand the value of my existence?
WIll today be the day when my heart will sing in its real Gratitude- "Thank you"
I want that in MY life! And I want that in my life for ME!
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Life after death Life after death [02:01 min] There are people who talk about life after death. And I say to them, "Here is my number. Call me and let me know!" They have not. Then people go, "Will I come back?" Of course! Because everything in this earth is recycled. It is. This goes back to being dirt again. Comes back, maybe as a tomato, or an eggplant.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Wish you were here! Wish you were here! [02:15 min] I can tell you one thing, every person who has been within, has called out to the entire humanity and called out "Wish, you were here!" Because there is no place like home! And that's your home (pointing to the heart).

When people are told by doctors that they've only 6 months to live, first it's hard to digest it. But once they come to terms with it, I've seen them getting bubbly. They become conscious and start enjoying everyday! "I don't wanna be distracted" But why does it have to be dire straits before clarity kicks in? Can't we have it before the dire straits? And you know what that process is called? Being Conscious.

You want to pray? Great! But what should your prayer be like? Santa Claus's wishlist? Or should the prayer be "Thank you! Thank you for this life, for this breath, for today, for this moment". But it isn't. Because there is no experience of today.
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 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 - 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 - 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 - That's what I do That's what I do [02:25 min] Reality is much more beautiful than fantasy. Because there is someone actually with whom you can live with 'Happily ever After'. And that is in your heart. No conflicts, no judgement.

This is the reality my friend. You're here and you are the ocean of peace, of kindness, of understanding, of happiness. Look within and you'll see what I'm talking about. And, if you do not know how to look within (opens his arms)- This I'm good at! That's what I do.

I'm not here to sell you anything. You search, wherever you find it; perfect. Be happy, enjoy it, be content. Flourish. But if you don't find it, look me up.

I've this way, I call it knowledge; To know. That can take your attention from outside, turn it inside and you can feel that ocean inside of you. That's it. That's what I do.
