Seven billion reasons why peace deserves a chance


Words of Peace is an independent charitable foundation
set up by individuals inspired by Prem Rawat’s message of peace.

Funded by donations, Words of Peace provides information on, and financial support for Prem Rawat’s work,
including his public events around the world, where needed. We also provide access to recent videos and audios
relating to his work, including material recorded at his public talks, and interviews with him.

In 2015 there were more than 845,000 visitor sessions on the Words of Peace website.

Words of Peace is run primarily by volunteers supported by a small number of staff.


Prem Rawat has been traveling to speak to audiences about peace since the age of four. In 2015 alone he spoke to over 493,000 people during a tour that covered 44 cities and 19 countries. Read the story about one man’s journey for peace.

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.

In 2001 Prem Rawat set up The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF), which works to address the fundamental human needs of food, water and peace. Through a variety of programs and initiatives, TPRF is dedicated to helping build a world at peace, one person at a time so that people can live with peace, dignity and prosperity.

Two of TPRF’s long-term programs are: the Peace Education Program, a course with 10 themed workshops to help people discover their own inner resources and the Food for People program, a model food-aid program helping communities to emerge from relentless poverty.
