Prem Rawat's message of peace hailed as 'noble' at Salamanca University Peace Conference
Salamanca, Spain, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Speaking at the University of Salamanca's first "Conference on Peace," Prem Rawat, an internationally known voice for peace, said, "Peace within is necessary in our lives in order for us to become complete as human beings." His keynote address was delivered before a capacity audience that included members of the senate, of the congress as well as civic and business leaders.
Prem Rawat, also known as Maharaji, addressed a distinguished audience in the Paraninfo, the Great Hall of the 13th century Salamanca university, 200 kilometres north of Madrid: "I have a dream that all civilizations, all people on the face of the earth will soon live in peace. To those that say, 'Isn't that reaching too far?' I say, 'If that is true, then it is the only ideal worth having.'"
In his address, he went on to point out that people everywhere need to openly acknowledge that "peace is a fundamental desire of every human being. It needs to be recognised and fulfilled. We need to turn within ourselves to find the answers for peace. We are not going to find them outside or on top of some mountain."
Calling his message, "noble," University of Salamanca Vice Rector D. Jose Maria Hernandez Diaz, who delivered the opening address of the "Peace is Necessary," conference, said "Prem Rawat talks about peace from a very original perspective. We are used to hearing about peace from a political or sociological perspective as the absence of war, and we normally put the responsibility for peace on governments or political organisations. But he talks about peace from a human perspective and highlights the important role of each human being in bringing peace to the world."
Following the conference, Prem Rawat spoke at three successive events at the Madrid International Fairgrounds. On June 21, expanding upon the theme he developed in the Salamanca conference, he declared in front of an audience of more than 5,700: "There are advertisements everywhere that tell us about what we could have, not what we need. There are no advertisements for peace. Yet the key ingredient missing in all that is happening in the world is the cry in the heart of each one of us for peace."
