For the first time since 2008, Prem Rawat spoke at an event in Mauritius. It was held at the Swami Vivekananda International Convention Centre in Port Louis — Mauritius' capital city and main commercial port. Given that the crowd spoke Hindi as well as English, he alternated between the two languages throughout his talk, using a variety of stories, jokes and analogies to bring home his point.
Here are some things he had to say:
It’s easy to be a believer. You can believe anything you want. Knowing is a little bit more specific. You cannot know anything. You can only know that which is. What is? This beautiful breath, this beautiful existence.
You know who is your savior? You! You’re most qualified to save yourself. You know all your weaknesses. You know all your strengths. You are eminently qualified to save yourself. So get on with the business of saving yourself by recognizing the potential that you have within you. Understand. This is not a little thing.
Recognize. Understand. Delight in the discovery of life. Delight in the discovery of this breath. Delight in the discovery of the divine that resides inside of you. Lastly, is peace possible? Yes. How is peace possible, with all those problems out there? Because peace doesn’t reside in problems. Peace resides in you!
