How to Find Peace in a Noisy World

by Prem Rawat

“Travel with me for part of your journey and you might be surprised where we go. We are heading away from the realm of theories and beliefs towards a unique form of knowledge. To somewhere within you that’s free of everyday distractions. To a place where you really can experience clarity, fulfillment and joy. To a place of inner peace. Our path will take us through mindfulness and heartfulness to peacefulness.”

In his very personal book, Hear Yourself, Prem Rawat shares key moments of his life, from the 13-year-old Indian boy, suddenly propelled onto the stage at the Glastonbury Festival in 1971, to his experience as an airplane pilot. He talks about his encounters with remarkable people, from political leaders to prisoners he meets with at some of the most inhospitable prisons in the world.

He guides the reader on a journey, often illustrated with stories, that reflect simplicity and accessibility for all, inviting us to listen to the heart, to reconnect with ourselves and take control of our lives. This book dives deep into the heart, while reflecting on the meaning of existence and the immense possibilities it offers.

Born in 1957 in the Himalayan foothills, Prem Rawat learned from his father, a respected teacher. He began delivering his message of peace around the world as a teenager and has reached hundreds of millions of people in more than 100 countries.

He created the Prem Rawat Foundation to help address basic human needs, including peace education, a course that empowers each participant to discover their inner resources, which is essential for personal fulfillment. Prem lives in Los Angeles with his family and travels around the world every year, meeting people interested in his practical approach to life.

I had a music professor in university that tutored me to obtain my degree in aesthetics, who used to tell us: “Listen to music without thinking of anything; the slightest thought will distract you from the violins, the beat, intervals, the piano, melodic nuances…” This jewel of unfathomable wisdom entitled Hear Yourself reminds me of that great music professor.
