Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 7, 2007
"Words of Peace" (WOP) has received the "Honoris Causa" Award from the Brazilian Association of Community Television Channels for its "important contribution to imparting a culture of peace." It is the third award this international series, featuring Prem Rawat's message of peace, has received in Brazil.
Fernando Mauro, President of the Association, expressed, "This award stands for what we wish to be an eternal relationship between Prem Rawat's message of peace and the Community Television channels. The two hands in the award represent our alliance with Prem Rawat and 'Words of Peace,' a very important alliance to be remembered. 'Words of Peace' has shown people from all levels of Brazilian society the fundamental role that a message of inner peace can play on television and in people's lives."
According to Mr. Mauro, WOP has been instrumental in the integration of Community Channels in open television. Starting in 2008, a new open TV channel will also be airing WOP. This channel will reach more than 18 million people in São Paulo alone.
Prem Rawat, known also as Maharaji, has traveled the world for more than four decades, inspiring people to find peace within. Through "Words of Peace," his message currently reaches people in more than 90 countries and 70 languages each week.
WOP was first shown on cable in Brazil in 2003 in São Paulo. It quickly expanded to other cities in the state of São Paulo and to Rio de Janeiro, Caxias do Sul, Porto Alegre and Florianópolis. It is currently broadcasted weekly by four networks. In 2008, "Words of Peace" will be aired on at least 55 channels throughout Brazil, and the number of interested channels is constantly growing.
