Frequently Asked QuestionsQ: What is the message?
A: Prem Rawat, known also by the honorary title Maharaji, brings a unique possibility in everyone's life. “What you are looking for is within you. And if you want to get in touch with it, I can help”. His message is more than just words, which he calls Knowledge. Knowledge is a practical way to experience the Peace within. For anyone who is interested, he offers it as a Gift.
Q: Many people offer a message of hope and peace. What is different about Maharaji and his message?
A: Maharaji recently answered this question by saying: “It is not just a question of a message, but actual experience. I don't just come along and say, 'Everything is great.' I offer a practical way to be able to appreciate every breath. My message is not just words. There is an experience to be had, and I offer the know-how to do that.”
Q: If this is a gift, does it cost anything?
A: There is no charge at any point of time. Maharaji has never charged people for any of his events, or for the knowledge that he offers. All events are arranged through voluntary contributions. Nobody is obligated.
Q: Is this like Yoga, Meditation, or something to do with Religion?
A: What Maharaji offers is independent of and compatible with any religion. It is not related to any philosophy, belief system, or spiritual path. Knowledge is not about contemplating a thought or mind control. Neither is it meant to improve your physical health. It is a way to feel true joy and contentment in one's life.
Q: How is the dissemination of his message funded?
A: The dissemination of his message is entirely supported by voluntary contributions from those who appreciate his message, and from the sale of related materials. He supports himself and his family through private investments.
Q: If I am interested in the techniques of Knowledge, what is the next step?
A: If you wish to discover more about what Knowledge is and how to prepare to learn these techniques, you can read a brochure or watch a video called "Discovering More". They are also available in print and DVD versions. Before learning these techniques, there is a period of preparation that may take from three to five months. The preparation involves viewing video materials called "The Keys." There are six Keys. The first five consist of a presentation by Maharaji and approximately ten to twelve hours of supporting video material. After watching the first five Keys, people may ask to be shown the techniques of Knowledge, which are taught in the sixth Key, in a special session. These sessions take place in many countries around the world on scheduled dates each year.
