Miami Beach Mayor David Dremer honours Prem Rawat for contribution to city

Miami, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Citing "his tireless efforts" in helping "many people find inner peace and fulfilment," Miami Beach Mayor David Dremer bestowed the traditional "Keys to the City" on Prem Rawat, known internationally as a leading voice for peace. The Mayor thanked Prem Rawat, who many also know as Maharaji, for attracting over the years nearly 200,000 people from across the U.S. and abroad, who visited the famed resort city to hear his inspiring addresses.

In his presentation remarks, Mayor Dremer noted that many who came to Miami to listen to Prem Rawat "ended up making Miami Beach their home. They bought properties and created businesses including leading construction and real estate companies and well-known restaurants. Some have become civic activists, sitting on redevelopment boards."

Since 1977, the 46 events in which Prem Rawat has spoken have contributed "more than US$90 million" to the city's economy, according to the Mayor, and have created positive national and international publicity for the city.

Prior to the keys-presenting ceremony, Prem Rawat, a one-time Miami Beach resident, held another packed two-day event at the city's Theatre of Performing Arts, addressing a standing-room-only audience in the 2,700 seat hall. The event was the final stop this year of a successful six week U.S. tour where more than 18,700 people came to hear him.

"We hope that Prem Rawat continues to make Miami Beach a venue for bringing his message of peace," said Mayor Dremer.

Accepting the honour from the mayor, Prem Rawat, lauded the hospitality of the people in the city and expressed his "hope to be able to keep coming back and holding many more events in Miami Beach in the years ahead."
