What Distinguishes The Prem Rawat Foundation From Other Charities?

Mary Wishard, Media and Communications Manager for The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF), recently responded to the question below from a large foundation considering TPRF for a grant. We also think the Q&A would be of interest to anyone wanting to know more about TPRF: 
What distinguishes your organization’s work from other organizations in the field?
While TPRF is a relatively small foundation, it enjoys worldwide support from people in 50 countries because of the nature of the founder’s international work. Much support comes in the form of volunteering time and talent. We are also a virtual company with no physical offices. Both of these factors allow us to keep a low overhead.
All of TPRF’s work is guided by the principles of Dignity, Peace, and Prosperity. The people we work with are treated with great respect for their dignity, for their worth as a human being, rather than as people in need of help. Our programs are designed to help people with essential needs so that they have a chance to turn their own lives around in spite of the challenges they face.
In the case of the Food for People (FFP) program, we have discovered that providing one nutritious hot meal a day to children and ailing adults in their local cuisine has been enough to bring about significant changes in the whole community. The local leaders participate in decisions about what is needed to ensure that village collaboration is created. The Food for People model develops local ownership, pride, and assurance that the program will continue.
Through the Peace Education Program (PEP), people from all walks of life all over the world discover their own inner strengths and the power of choice, whether they are successful business people, young students, or prison inmates. They are empowered to find fulfillment for themselves, individually. Much like the youngsters receiving food from FFP, they find their own dignity based on understanding their innate worth as a human being.
These programs offer far more than food and education. They offer individuals a well of resources that last as long as they choose to use them.

Pizza Margherita

You go anywhere in the world, anywhere in the world—and so they have a pizza place. You can get pizza. So you go there and you read in the menu, “Pizza. Pizza Margherita.” So what does it say? It says “Pizza … Margherita.” 
So you order Pizza Margherita—right? The spelling of the pizza is the same. The spelling of “Margherita” is the same. Even in Italy—“Pizza Margherita.” “Pizza” is spelled the same way. “Margherita” is spelled the same way. You go to India—“pizza” is spelled the same way. “Margherita” is spelled the same way. 
You think they will taste the same? 
There. That’s the difference. Just—what you read said the same thing. So why don’t they just taste the same?
You go to Italy, pizza tastes completely different than in New York, than in Chicago, than in Los Angles, than in Hawaii, than in Japan, than in Australia. And the spelling is exactly the same: “pizza.” How can this be? 
Because that’s the difference between living and theory. Theory can say, “Yeah, it’s the same.” But living says, “No, it’s not the same.”
In your eyes, in your feeling a snowflake is a snowflake. Right? Snowflake is a snowflake. Look closer, and each snowflake is different. 
And then have you ever seen a whole field just full of white snow—maybe two feet deep, just snow, snow, snow, snow—have you? Imagine how many snowflakes there are in that field. And now imagine, each one is different. the Reality. Theory? “The field was covered with snow.”
Do you feel cold? There you are sitting in a beautiful 70-degree room; the fireplace is lit; you’re sitting next to it. You’re reading the book, and the book says, “And the field was covered with snow.” You don’t feel cold. 
But! In reality, you will feel what is there. In reality, even if you do not acknowledge it, each one of those snowflakes is different than the other. And all the snow in the world, it is not repeated in those flakes. 
Is that something to wonder, “Wow….” This is where I live. This is where I am; this is where I’m alive. 
So, you know—really—in your, in one’s life, I really think you have to pick Well how do you want to live, how do you want to be? Because, if you want to be in reality, it’s one thing. If you don’t want to be in reality, it’s another thing.
And then to always know the difference—always know the difference. I can read the menu, but I can’t eat it—that if I am hungry, I have to eat food, not the menu. That’s sanity. That’s sanity.

Wants and needs

There are needs—and then there are wants. There are needs—and then there are wants. The world today does not know the difference between “want” and “need.” What do people need? 
They need fresh air. You need fresh air. Why? Three minutes without air—pfft—you will die. There’s a Rule of Three’s. Three minutes—not fresh air, you’re in trouble. You need clean water. Why? Three days without water, you will die!
You need warmth, shelter. Three hours—hypothermia—pfft—you’re dead. Not want—need. Three weeks without good food?—and you’re dead. Not want. Need. 
Why is poverty bad? It’s because it does not give people access to what they need. That’s why poverty is bad, and the world goes, “What do people want?” What do people want?! They want everything!
And they want way too much! And if the world was focused on making sure that the need of the people was met, this would be a different world—truly. 
The difference between want and need? That’s why there is hunger in this world. Because of the want, all the food that is actually generated is wasted. It’s totally wasted. Because it’s this want! The need?—this food would never go to waste!
So, in a human being, same way, what do you need? And what do you want? You need to feel good. You need to feel content. You need—you need—to feel the equilibrium. You need to feel the serenity. You need to feel the stillness. You need … just to feel good.

La empresa editora japonesa Bunya recibe regularmente cartas de la aprecio de los lectores de "Afinando la Puntería" y El bote con el Agujero", esta semana acaban de recibir una llamada telefónica algo especial de un profesor que representaba a una escuela secundaria privada en Tokio.
Había encontrado la versión japonesa de "Afinando la Puntería" en una librería, al sentirse profundamente conmovida por su lectura y siendo profesora de inglés decidió pedir la versión en inglés y disfrutó aún más.
Ella propuso a su departamento de Inglés que el libro se incluya en su currículo como un libro ideal para estudiar Inglés como segundo idioma y para aprender sobre la vida, la empatía y la compasión.
Los otros maestros lo acordaron unánimemente y desde el verano de 2017 todos los estudiantes del segundo año recibirán una copia y estudiarán "Afinando la Puntería" de cubierta a cubierta seguida de discusiones de grupo. Finalmente redactarán un ensayo sobre el libro.
En el otoño de 2017 la escuela espera organizar un evento en vivo con Prem para que los estudiantes puedan aprender directamente de él y tener una sesión de preguntas y respuestas.
En Bunya sentimos que este es un logro histórico para el libro y esperamos sinceramente que más escuelas y universidades sigan el ejemplo para que la próxima generación pueda entender plenamente su propio papel como individuos en el establecimiento de una sociedad compasiva más pacífica.

Prem Rawat

If you have ever seen a magician perform—and you have to pay attention to how they do what they do—it’s very interesting. 
Because whatever they do (if they’re hiding a coin or whatever), they distract you from what’s really happening, and they’ll do something else with the other hand, and you’re looking at that hand, whilst they’re doing what they’re doing. 
And it’s so smooth that—you go, “Oh my God, what just happened? How did he do that? How did he produce, you know, this dollar bill out of his shirt?” I mean, you have to think. Yeah, And people will sit there and people will applaud. 
And obviously, I mean, if he could do that for real—make hundred-dollar bills come out of his sleeve—why would he be doing this performance? He could be having a nice vacation on a Caribbean island somewhere, you know, sipping his umbrella drinks.
But he’s not doing that. He’s traveling, town to town, place to place, trying to make a meager living while fooling the audience—and this is the point of it. He’s actually fooling you, and you’re applauding being fooled.
This is the same problem I have with people when they’re watching a movie, and then they start crying! And I’m like, “But this really didn’t happen.” 
And it’s bizarre watching TV in India, because that same actor could be in four different movies. And you switch a channel and it’s like… and he’s there, and kissing another girl, and then running away with another girl—and it’s like, “What’s with this guy?” 
But, we get fooled! And we have a propensity to get attracted to something that takes us away from where we truly should be attracted to.
So, distraction is actually another attraction, but it’s taking you away from what you should be attracted to. You should be attracted to your existence. Why? Because it is the most precious thing there is. There’s nothing more precious than being alive. This is one thing that nobody is selling and nobody can buy!
