In the first four months of 2014, Prem Rawat’s work has had a huge impact. Here’s a recap.
India and Nepal
After beginning the year with events in the US and Europe, Prem Rawat went on a two and a half month tour of Asia. During that time nearly one million people had the opportunity to hear him in person.
Of nine events held in India, one was particularly groundbreaking: Youth Peace Fest. The festival was held to foster a culture of peace and featured a range of live music performers, videos, and speakers — including keynote speaker Prem Rawat. It was attended by over 185,000 people, with an estimated reach of 6.5 million through TV, radio, online publications and newspapers.
Here’s a picture from the event's stage showing people almost as far as the eye can see.

Youth Peace Fest was covered widely, with 32 media outlets attending. The Times of India, the largest English-speaking newspaper in the world, sponsored the event through their humanitarian foundation.
The people at Times Foundation were so impressed by Youth Peace Fest that they offered to sponsor all of Prem Rawat’s events through the following year.
More Youth Peace Fests are planned, internationally, for the latter half of 2014 and early 2015. It's expected that thousands of young people will attend in Brazil, Thailand and Malaysia.
