Over 25,000 young people aged under 25 filled the Indira Gandhi indoor stadium in New Delhi to capacity at the occasion of an event held to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Prem Rawat, known widely as Maharaji, bringing his message of peace.
The vice president of India, Shri Bhairon Singh Shekhawat, said, "I am amazed at the magnitude of this event and at how many people are deeply moved by Prem Rawat’s call to peace. I’m convinced that the people of India and our brothers from other countries need to embrace in their hearts Prem Rawat’s call to peace. For the last 40 years, as a messenger of peace, Prem Rawat has been making a constant effort to teach a lesson of peace to people. I would like to express my heartfelt feeling towards him, as a most trusted and respected person who takes a message of joy to society, and society puts it into practice. Doing so is the greatest success there can be in life. I want his message to reach the people around the world."
