Seven billion reasons why peace deserves a chance
PRACTICE PEACE, CHANGE YOUR WORLD
Words of Peace is an independent charitable foundation
set up by individuals inspired by Prem Rawat’s message of peace.
Funded by donations, its aim is to share Prem Rawat’s message by supporting events around the world and by providing clear, effective information on upcoming events and the need for their financial support.
Primarily run by volunteers, assisted by a small number of staff, Words of Peace aims to help Prem Rawat share his message of peace with as many people as possible by supporting live events in three key ways.
Thanks to the donations of thousands of people, Words of Peace ensures that Prem Rawat can attend:
- Public events around the world;
- Third-party special events, where he is invited to speak at universities, business forums, and government bodies; and
- Media interviews for print, radio, and TV.
We provide information on upcoming live events attended by Prem Rawat via the website, email, and Facebook.

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.Prem Rawat
THE PREM RAWAT FOUNDATION
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.
