Peace Felt So Possible

Late that afternoon, we enjoyed the treat of watching the final event in the Week of Peace and Solidarity—music, dance and speeches in the main square, in front of the Stile bearing Prem Rawat’s words. Young and old turned out to watch and listen. There were people looking down from their balconies and children playing in the park. Prem Rawat’s talk started with a story and a joke—yet I felt like he was issuing me a challenge: to make peace a reality in my own life, to see the humanity in everyone—everyone—to use my brain, and to live with integrity.

A Historic Day

“As I see it, history will be also be written today in the hearts of the people who listen to one of the greatest Ambassadors of Peace ever known”…Giuseppe Buffa writing about the Week of Peace in Mazara del Vallo, Scicily.

Week of Peace Part 2

The day after the conference on peace, we went on a tour of the Kasbah with Mayor Cristaldi, and to our surprise, we saw three of our leaflets that somebody had put up on a shop door as a means of advertising the conference. More than thirty Arabs attended the conference on Friday.

Witnessing Wonders

In 2009, TPRF Founder Prem Rawat visited the small town of Mazara del Vallo in Scicily. He came to speak to the town government, citizens, and students on the subject of peace. His address and subsequent question and answer session with students of Mazara has inspired a “Week of Peace and Solidarity” celebration (May 23-28) to promote understanding, tolerance, and a culture of peace around the world. The Mazara Town Council made Prem Rawat an Honorary Citizen of the city.
