About the Author: Prem Rawat and Illustrator: Aya Shiroi
Author: Prem Rawat
Prem sees human happiness as not just a possibility but a critical need for everyone. Without it, however good we become in business, however apparently successful we become in our careers, we will remain unfulfilled.
What we are now seeing in the world says Prem is the result of the lack of human contentment, including wars, environmental destruction, greed, violence and social ills, all of which can be avoided provided humanity is in touch with itself.
The honorary title “Ambassador of Peace” has been granted to Prem Rawat by a number of governmental and academic institutions because of his ability to inspire global audiences.
