Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Conversation with a Cancer patient Conversation with a Cancer patient [05:03 min] This clip has been taken from an event which took place in Barcelona on 19th Dec, 2010. Maharaji talks to a lady who is suffering from Cancer.

Woman: "I'm going through Hard times because I'm ill. Nevertheless I feel so much hope and so much Joy. It's very surprising to me, I surprise myself!"

Maharaji: You have strength inside of you, hope inside of you. Dig it, and use it. Everyday! If you have cancer, Be a Cancer to the Cancer! And understand that ultimately you have to go. When? Nobody can tell you. But this illness, fight it. Fight and defeat this illness. If you can't, keep fighting it. That's the warrior in you. You thought you had to fight many wars, finally here is one war. Fight it. A warrior fights and fights and fights till the fight is no more.

You have knowledge, incredible source of strength. Why? I will tell you why. Because with this illness, your mind will come and eat you alive. Because this mind, will come and chew you up, at night, at day, every moment, beat you. Anything that can put this much distance between the mind and you is good. And knowledge can do that.

Best thing you can do, to beat this disease, is to enjoy every day. Because this is what it takes away from you. This is life. Your objective always has been since day one to enjoy every day that you have been given. No matter what happens in your life, your objective should not ever change. People get divorced, their loved ones go away. Your objective still should be the truest enjoyment of this heart. I strongly believe, thats why you were put here on the face of this earth.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Prem Rawat speaks to young gang members Prem Rawat speaks to young gang members [06:58 min] Good evening. My name is Christina Recalde
It's a pleasure to be in front of you
I had seen you on videos and
I'm amazed to be standing here asking you a question.
I am a gang leader and
also part of Peace and Respect on the Street Program.
We have seen our brothers and friends die
and we wanted all that to end.
As it says in the videos, we have our own angel which is within us,
and personally, that message has changed my life.
Thank you.
What I would like to say to you, again, is very simple. It's very simple.
You are a human being.
When you got up, I didn't know who you were,
but I knew you were a human being.
That's who you are. Learn to respect yourself.
You see, even when you were robbing people,
you knew one thing if somebody robbed you, you didn't like it.
When somebody stole something of yours, like your, you know, stole your earring or something
- "Where is that thing?!" So you knew but, it's like, you were somehow different than
the people you were robbing. But you're a human being.
Do you know that the breath that comes into you is the same breath that comes into me?
The breath says "OK, I'm coming into you." Not going "You've been bad, so, OK, 'time out'."
No! No. To become beautiful, from inside. To become strong, from inside.
If you want to be wealthy, then learn to be generous.
If you want to be strong, then learn humility.
If you want to be smart, learn simplicity.
That's what it takes. Learn simplicity.
Learn humility. If you want that strength, learn that gentleness towards yourself.
A candle has one thing that it can do, and that is, it can light other candles.
All you have to be, is the candle that lights the unlit candles.
It's better than robbing them.
Because, you know, either way they will remember you!
But one way they will remember you with fear,
and the other way they will remember you with gratitude.
You know you ended up being a gang member because you could be anybody you wanted to be.
You chose that. Can you change your mind? Of course! That's the beauty of it.
That's the beauty of it. But this time be pure of heart.
This time be pure of heart,
and that will be your strength.
Belong to the 'gang' of the really cool!
So, anybody and everybody can help, and everybody needs to. Everybody needs to.
This is a noble cause and it has been dreamt by every single civilization,
and it has been dreamt by every single society, and it is about time that it happens.

He answered questions about the current state of the world and spoke of the endurance of the human spirit, of all that humankind has lived through and about the power of hope."

Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Grain of sand Grain of sand [04:09 min]
Next time you go to the beach, take some sand out- put it on the palm of your hand.
Take it all away till there is one grain of sand left in the palm of your hand. And then look around and see all the sand that there is,
then look at the one thats on the palm of your hand, and know- that one is different from all the other ones- Unique!
There is no grain of sand like this one anywhere in the world.
Check it out! Thats who you are!
You are Unique- Distinctly Unique.
There has no one been like you on the face of this earth before and there wont be again- never, ever!
Do you understand what that means?
Never- This drama of this person, of this human being will never play out again, it is Unique.
The universes may come and go, this is not happening again. The way you can appreciate something, nobody else can. What makes you smile, is your signature.
The pallet isn’t the planet earth, the pallet is "The Heart"!
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Ram and Bhilni Ram and Bhilni [07:11 min] This was when, Ram was exiled and he was in the jungle. His wife had been stolen by Ravan and he was in the conquest to get her back. Ram was travelling through the jungle. There was this lady, and her name was Bhilini. She had heard, that Ram is going to go through here on his way, in that search.

Now, she hadn’t heard that Ram is gonna come and stay here. It was just going to be a passage, he was going to go through. And she started to prepare. And her preparation, was so intense, that everybody who saw it, only made fun of her. Because everyday she would clean the road. Everyday she would put flowers on it. Everyday she would go and gather the fruit from the jungle. Everyday, she would prepare and prepare and prepare. Preparation. In that preparation, she found her joy. It was not laborious to her to prepare.

And even though people laughed, because they did not understand, because she had no date of when Ram was to come. She just knew he is gonna come. So, she just started preparing every single day. And people saw this happening day after day after day and they said, "She is crazy."

And everyday people would go to their work, would go where they were going, but she would wait. She wanted to be prepared.

One day Ram came, and she was ready. Not that everybody did'nt want to see Ram. Everybody wanted to see Ram, but they hadn't prepared and they weren't ready. And Ram came and when he came, she was, she greeted him. Took him to the room, offered him food, offered him rest. And everybody was everywhere else. Then Ram left and the only difference they saw that she no longer prepared for him. And they asked here, have you given up. And she said, no, he came and he is gone. And she was exorbitant happy.

What can I get out of that story in my life? That I too, in my life need to be prepared. And I need to be prepared for that clarity to come my way. And that preparation that I need, needs to be immaculate.

And I cannot let the doubt makers come and say, "You are crazy. Yur clarity will never take place." I cant. I cant afford that. Lately, have you, have I, have we taken a look at things that are important to us? How long ago, have we made such a list, taken such an account? When was the last time? When was the last time of all the things that we do of quote unquote normal in this world? When was the last time we took and account of what is really important to you and me? When did we say that this breath is important to me? Whether it is or it isn't, only you know.
Prem Rawat - Maharaji - Questions, Answers, and Perspectives Questions, Answers, and Perspectives [19:30 min] I go around the world and talking about peace to people. I've understood one thing, people don't have a clue what peace is. Peace, without which we would lose the very fabric of who we are. Peace that dances in the heart of everyone- that's the peace I'm talking about. Even in the middle of the war, a person can experience peace.

Doesn't this fascinate you that at your very core, you've the capacity to feel joy and the capacity to feel anger? When you feel joy, you don't mind. Nobody goes to Church and Temple saying "God I've had enough joy, please take it away". Nobody commits suicide saying "I was way too happy, goodbye happy world!" You should be intrigued by this fact. Your ability to feel joy is unique. Understand that this is your nature and a part of you - Aversion to suffering and attraction to joy. Then, find in your life the joy that never ends. The joy that you carry with you wherever you go.

I see people and I see them looking, this is my perspective. People are sitting on roadside cafes and they are looking. And I wonder that they are looking for something. Searching. Not knowingly- unknowingly. A nature of a human being trying to find a comfort. Trying to find joy. Not even knowing that that's what they are looking for. Perhaps, much deeper; looking, searching for a peace, tranquility. A peace yet undefined. A peace that perhaps can play out even on a battle field. Looking for a freedom even in the middle of a prison and finding it. Looking for friendship not defined by friends, but one which feels real. Perhaps looking for reality, in a world which we think it is real. But something inside says "Not really". Looking for stability in a world that is so changing. Perhaps looking for a breath that just came and changed my life forever.
And if you are looking for peace, it is within us. If you are looking for joy, it's not far from us. If you're looking for that friend, it is always, always has been and always will be, within inside of us. If you are looking for the place that doesn't change, then that place is also inside of us.
And you know what? You know this!
