    Messenger of Peace


    His message is simple and profound. At the UN Conference Centre in Bangkok, he stated, “Peace needs to be in everyone’s life. The peace we are looking for is within. It is in the heart, waiting to be felt. It is not the world that needs peace; it is people. When people in the world are at peace within, the world will be at peace.”

    This message, which is not affiliated with any particular philosophy, religion or spiritual path, has resonated deeply in the hearts of millions of people, giving them a fresh perspective and renewed joy in life. People everywhere — old and young, educated and uneducated, rich and poor — have reported benefiting from following Prem Rawat's advice to look within themselves for the peace and contentment they are seeking.

    In 2001, Prem Rawat started The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) whose purpose is to address fundamental human needs so that people everywhere can live their lives with dignity, peace, and prosperity. His message of peace is now available in 97 countries and 70 languages.

    He envisioned the TPRF model program called Food for People, which now has two successful facilities, one in India and the other in Nepal, with more under development. When people are in need of help, he says, “our objective is to help them through the rough times without interfering with the beautiful things that exist in their culture, their beliefs, or their religion. When we offer a hand of help, it is on equal ground. We try to lend a hand with respect for each person as a human being.”
