Words of Peace, an award-winning half-hour TV series, features highlights from addresses by Prem Rawat, also widely known as Maharaji. The show airs each week, year round, in Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, Europe, and South America.
Words of Peace debuted in Australia in Melbourne two years ago on Channel 31, one of only six free-to-air TV channels. According to OZTam, Words of Peace typically reaches over 13,000 households in Melbourne. Ratings are also increasing steadily in Auckland (Triangle TV), Perth (Access 31), and Adelaide (C31).
The Brazilian Association of Community Television Channels granted Words of Peace their highest award in November last year. In Europe, the series is shown each week via satellite in twelve languages.
For Katherine Messner, an advertising executive in Brisbane: "With Words of Peace seen each week on TV throughout the country, Prem Rawat has become widely known and recognized in Australia. People watch Words of Peace in homes, gymnasiums, nursing homes, and hospitals around the country. Viewers find his message comforting." In Melbourne, more than 1,400 people have called or written asking to be notified when Prem Rawat holds an event in Australia.
Prem Rawat brings a message of hope and peace. Addressing a distinguished audience of civic, government and academic leaders at Thammasat University in Bangkok, Thailand, he said: "What we're looking for is happiness, and in all our searching who do we forget? Ourselves. Whatever the equation is that you have created, please include yourself in it, because without you, without your heart, without peace in your life, there can never be peace in the world."
