This just in from Rachel and Ron Clearfield:
"Ron and I would like to invite you to our 7th annual Golden Garden Party to benefit TPRF's Food for People program -- an inspired gathering that will be held on our land near Asheville, North Carolina on Saturday, June 15, 2013.
We'll be having some fabulous music and food. Lots of wonderful people will be there and we hope you can be there, too!
If, by chance, you cannot attend, please consider making a donation via our website. Every dollar you give will be matched by an anonymous donor. What a great way to help this important project of The Prem Rawat Foundation."

7 Billion Reasons for Peace
The following just posted on The Prem Rawat Foundation website.
"As this is being posted, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Prem Rawat is receiving a prestigious International Lifetime Achievement Award from the Asia Pacific Brands Foundation (APBF), a non-profit organization in Malaysia and the Asia Pacific.
The intent of the award is to honor individuals whose contributions have enhanced the well-being of society and made our lives more comfortable.
APBF recognizes many outstanding people, but only three others have received its Lifetime Achievement Award: Hilary Clinton, Nelson Mandela, and Heinz Fischer.
Stay tuned for more news on tprf.org as the story unfolds".July 14, 2012
Texas Prisoners Find Inner Peace
Here's an extraordinary fact: There are more people living in US jails than live in the entire state of New Mexico.
Based on the latest data, the combined inmate population of correctional facilities in the United States is currently about 2.35 million.
The cost to the US Government? $74 billion dollars. That's $30,600 per prisoner. Those are staggering numbers. But even more staggering are the recidivism rates. 60% of all prisoners released from jail eventually return.
Clearly, the prison system is broken -- not just in this country, but in the world. Attempts at rehabilitation -- and there have been many -- have simply not worked. Until recently.
The Prem Rawat Foundation's (TPRF) Peace Education Program, now being piloted in Texas' Dominguez State Prison, is getting extraordinary results. Here is the story (be sure to watch the video).

Tis the Season to Be Giving
The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) has just launched its 10th Anniversary Holiday Campaign in an inspired effort to create more grass roots support for its much needed humanitarian endeavors such as Food for People, the Peace Education Program, and various forms of humanitarian aid. The goal of the Holiday Campaign is a simple one: 100 new donors contributing $10 (or more) per month.
Think about it. That's two capuccinos... or one night at the movies -- not much of a sacrifice, but more than enough to help support people in dire need.
