My commitment is to peace. In my travels around the world, I’ve experienced a lot of things — the most baffling of which is people’s explanation of why there can’t be peace. People focus on the symptoms, but not the disease. My efforts are focused on eliminating the disease — which is, fundamentally, people not being in touch with themselves, not knowing who they are. If we don’t take care of the disease, the symptoms will never go away. And we all know what the symptoms look like: greed, war, selfishness, violence, and an increasing loss of trust. Peace is a real thing. Peace resides in the heart of every human being. Peace has to emanate from each of us.

The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) addresses the fundamental human needs of food, water, and peace so that people can live their lives with dignity, peace, and prosperity.

Founded by Prem Rawat in 2001, the Foundation recognizes that peace is a fundamental need for all people and co-sponsors forums that introduce Prem Rawat’s message of peace to community and civic leaders. The Foundation has also developed a Peace Education Program (PEP) that provides people with materials to explore inner peace both in group settings or individually.

TPRF’s Food for People program has been extremely successful in helping to reverse the downward cycle of poverty for villages near Bantoli, India; Tasarpu, Nepal; and Otinibi, Ghana by collaborating closely with the village elders. The aim is to support communities while respecting their dignity and local culture.
