Prem Rawat's Message of Peace Requested by Indigenous People of South America

Share Article

Prem Rawat's award-winning Words of Peace presentations are being translated into several dialects of Quechua, the modern-day derivative of the ancient Inca's language, which today is spoken by indigenous populations of the South American continent. Although Prem Rawat's presentations translated into Spanish are viewed by more than 9 million households in South America via Infinito TV and other cable networks, this is the first time they have been available in Quechua in the rural and remote mountain settlements where that is the primary language.

This message is very beautiful. It helps the families here stay together, and that is why I want the message to stay in the community.

Prem Rawat's award-winning Words of Peace presentations are being translated into several dialects of Quechua, the modern-day derivative of the ancient Inca's language, which today is spoken by indigenous populations of the South American continent. Although Prem Rawat's presentations translated into Spanish are viewed by more than 9 million households in South America via Infinito TV and other cable networks, this is the first time they have been available in Quechua in the rural and remote mountain settlements where that is the primary language.

Leaders in several Quechuan villages in Ecuador have requested DVDs featuring Prem Rawat's message in their own language after events introducing it were held in the mountain villages of Tucara, La Esperanza, Aqualongo and Otavalo, Ecuador.

One village leader said, "This message is very beautiful. It helps the families here stay together, and that is why I want the message to stay in the community." Several more villages in Ecuador are making plans for events in 2008. Four communities in Peru have also requested materials in Peruvian Quechua this year.

The Quechuan language was widely spoken across the central Andes long before the time of the Incas, who adopted it as the official language of administration for their Empire. It is still spoken today in various regional forms by some 10 million people throughout much of South America, including Peru, southwestern and central Bolivia, southern Colombia and Ecuador, northwestern Argentina and northern Chile. It is the most widely spoken language of the indigenous peoples of the Americas.

Prem Rawat's Words of Peace contains his message that he can show people a way to tap into the inner peace and fulfillment that is inherently within all human beings.

Prem Rawat, known widely around the world as Maharaji, has traveled the world for four decades with the message that peace is possible and begins not with governments or institutions, but with individuals. He has been welcomed by millions of people in over 50 countries from villages in India to prestigious forums in major cities such as the Parliament buildings of Italy and Argentina and the universities of Harvard and Oxford.
