Life 00:05:51 Life Video Duration : 00:05:51 It begins with you, your understanding, your life, your existence.

What is life? Many many definitions. But if you want to look at life, look at it this way - that it’s a bunch of layers. Only one sheet is real, the rest of it is just overlays. Translucent overlays on top of that real sheet. And sometimes the overlays become so many, that you lose sight of that real sheet.

What I do is I ask people to lift those layers one by one and see that they’re only the layers. Every layer is changeable and every layer represents a change. The only thing that doesn’t change is the basic fundamental layer on which everything is developed on.

It’s like having a wall. Sometimes interior designers will do it. They’ll have a wall and they have a sofa, and they have different colors, but the base, the main sofa stays there, where they’ve got it. You can see it in different colors, but the basics do not change.

Life too is very much like those layers. We’ve got our relationships and we’ve got our friends and we’ve got our ideas, and we’ve got our jobs and we’ve got this happening and we’ve got that happening, and this is this, this is this, this is this and pretty soon you’re caught in all of those layers and we forget what the main sheet is. what it is about.

Look, some pianos come with 88 keys. Lowest note, highest notes. All songs played on that piano will be contained within those notes. If the Artist goes beyond the lowest 88, nothing! Doesn’t matter how good he is. All those notes that can be played, that’s it. That’s it! There’s no more and no less. That’s it. Everything has to be contained within that. It is the sequence. So, if somebody was to tell you, “mash all the keys at the same time and you will play every single song.”

Take a piece of bamboo, flattened bamboo or whatever, you know, notch it out so it can play all the 88 keys at once. Take it on top of the piano and go whoonkkht. And there, you have just played every single song that can be played on the piano. Technically it’s true. But it isn’t. Why isn’t it true? Because it will not sound beautiful, it will have no emotion. A song is not just about playing the key, but the silence in between. That’s what defines a song. The silence is just as important. If you just kept going ding-ding-ding-ding-ding you’ve got a fire-bell, not a song.

But in this life, if you take all these notes and mash them together and say yeah, everything is fine, I’m playing a song. You are sadly mistaken. There is no song. It’s just a big clunk-clunk-clunk-clunk-clunk sound. And if life doesn’t seem quite right, you are not mistaken. It’s not being played right. It is about the sequence, it is about the silence, it is about harmony, it is about the emotion. This is what constitutes a song.

It begins with you, your understanding, your life, your existence, your clarity, your song, your fingers on those keys that have been given to you. You playing a song. Not a hired artist. No, no, no. You playing the song. That’s what it is about, it is your emotion that has to come out, it is your song, and it is your enjoyment of that song that means everything.

Zero 00:06:37 Zero Video Duration : 00:06:37

Visible, captioned onscreen: nix, nada, none, naught, 0

ZERO

Individual:
Another word for zero? Nothing?

Individual: Nil.

Individuals: Nil

Individual: Nothing?

Individual: Or, zilch.

Individual: Empty?

Individual: Void!

Individual: Zip!

Individual: Empty.

Individual: Well, is zero empty? Oh, or…

Individuals: Yeah!

Individual: Pretty much.

Individual: Is it though?

Individual: Yeah.

Prem Rawat:

And there was a time where they had no idea about zero. Zero did not exist. Math was difficult.

Visible onscreen: BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!

Prem Rawat:

So, Indian Indians came up with zero.

Voices: Ah? Ooh! Ohhh!

Visible, captioned onscreen: oooh! ahhh! GASP!

Prem Rawat:

It is the absolute. It is everything—without being anything!

Individual: The power of zero. Hmm....

Individual: Infinite.

Individual: All and nothing at the same time, no?

Individual: It’s a number that’s not really a number. It’s... ...an idea more than a number.

Individual: It’s hard to talk about nothing.

Individual: Mathematically, you multiply anything by zero, you get zero.

Individual: When you add zero to something, the result doesn’t change.

Individual: That’s getting deep.

Individual 2: It’s the power of zero....

Individual: I mean, it’s hard to conceptualize, right?—for us, because we see everything as something.

Prem Rawat:

Imagine accepting zero. Not easy.

Visible, captioned onscreen: Pst! Zero.
No! Really?!
! !
Zero.
Zero!?

Prem Rawat:

World changed. Zero became a common thing.

Visible, captioned onscreen: O!
0% DOWN!
boom!

Some basic (elementary) rules for dealing with the number 0:

Addition: x + 0 = 0 + x = x

Subtraction: x – 0 = 0 and 0 – x = -x

Multiplication: x . 0 = 0 . x = 0

Division: 0/x = 0

(Wikipedia)

Prem Rawat:

Explanation for the infinite comes as zero? It is no entity, and yet, it is incredible entity.

Visible onscreen: 0, nothing, everything

Prem Rawat:

I mean, this zero! Fascinating!

Visible, captioned onscreen: How can nothing be something?

Individual: I think if you were like, you were to attach some sort of feeling to zero, it would be sadness, right?

Individual: Yeah.

Individual: I don’t know.

Individual: No, but I don’t necessarily think it’s sadness. Like, I think it’s....

Individual: I’ll vote for, more like silence.

Individual: Silence!

Individual: We have to be very, very still. Or we have to ... think a lot—or not at all. Then we can experience it.

Individual: Maybe it’s something too great to feel...

Prem Rawat:

When you are feeling perfectly healthy...

Visible onscreen: HEALTH-SCAN-O-MATIC, HEALTHY

Prem Rawat:

...what do you feel? I mean, no pain. Your pants are too tight; they’re not too loose. Your shoes are perfect. No headache, no arm ache, no pain anywhere. What do you feel? Zero! We all know when you have to go to the bathroom, you feel something: “Oooh-ooh!” But when you actually don’t have to go to the bathroom, what does it feel like? Zero!

Individual: You’re right!

Individual: Does that mean you are in zero?

Individual: ...you feel the absolute freedom?

Individual: The feeling of zero has to come from a living experience.

Individual: Like a state of contentment, a state of satisfaction when you aren’t lacking anything in particular.

Individual: Zero is cool!

Music lyrics: Let’s go! ... three, six, nine....

Prem Rawat:

How can you feel this zero? Well, there is such a thing called “Knowledge” which works beautifully to let you feel the zero. The Knowledge of the self is more important than all the knowledge of this world. It’s no different than the relationship of one and zero. If zero comes first, and then one? One stays one; zero stays zero. Add another zero, no change. Add another zero, no change. Add another zero, no change. You can add a thousand zeroes, no change. One will stay one; zero stays zero.

Add one first, and every zero takes on a meaning.

Music, lyrics: One more time....

Prem Rawat:

Now, one doesn’t stay one, it becomes ten. Add another zero, and becomes a hundred. Add another zero, and becomes thousand. And so on, and so on, and so on, and so on. Knowledge of the self, first. And then, everything else.

Individual: All the great Masters talk about, you know, nothingness, and ... and ... and how that everything is nothing.

Individual: It sounds negative. But that’s a concept of society, I think. It’s—it depends on how you look at it.

Individual: It depends where you put it... right or left. As they say, ‘A zero on the left is no good at all.”

Individual: Without it, nothing would be complete.

Visible, captioned onscreen: I’m #1

Prem Rawat:

You are the one. When you give priority to everything else, you remain one. Nothing happens. But when you give priority to being fulfilled in your life, then comes all the zeroes. It’s no longer just one. It’s ten, hundred, hundred thousand, million, trillion. Simple math. It’s a matter of priority. That’s all it is—it’s just where you put the one, and where you put the zero. That’s all.

You have this life. That is important. That is true. That is real. Given that you have this incredible opportunity to have this thing called “life,” what would you do with it? Would you squander it away? Or, would you embrace it and make the most of it?

One moment lost is not a moment that is coming back. Such is the severity of this subject. This life has to be lived consciously. You cannot afford anything else but that simple singularity in your life—to pursue that one thing that is nothing less than fulfillment every single day.

What does it mean to open your eyes, to understand this rhythm, this dance that is everywhere, this beauty that is vying for your attention? Delight. Embrace this life. Take in the joy that your heart wants you to feel. It’s there to be felt every day.

In the contrast of everything that’s going on in your life, this is happening; that’s happening. And you’re trying to cope and cope and cope, trying to make things better and better.

And you have your hopes and dreams and ideas. And you look at the world, and you look at yourself, and you want the world to be good. And some days, you want to be good. And you want your neighbor to be good, and you want your cat to be good, and your dog to be good. And you want all these things to be good.

And this is your pursuit. It sounds ridiculous. Your clothes, your shoes, your car, your friends—is that what life is?

And in this business of “late” and “late” and “late,” one day it will become too late.

I never want it to be too late for you to be fulfilled. It doesn’t matter who you are, how old you are, how intelligent you are. You have got to have a plan. And what is the plan? “If I wasted today, I’m not going to waste another second lamenting that I wasted today. I’ll come up with a plan for tomorrow. I will try a little harder”—and that’s all it takes.

That’s all it takes, to be a little more conscious. Be focused; be conscious. And most importantly, enjoy every single moment of this life.

The Living Legacy 00:03:28 The Living Legacy Video Duration : 00:03:28 Make the most of being alive. Enjoy the self.

"It’s all about hope. You’ve got to have hope."

Prem Rawat: [voiceover]

Life is a beautiful thing. This is what we have. This is the limited thing that we have. It’s about you being alive at this moment in time, on this planet Earth.

Onscreen text:

"Make the most of being alive—enjoy the self."

-Peace Education Program Participant

Prem Rawat: [voiceover]

And what kind of legacy do you want to leave behind? Because that is going to be determined with what you feel in yourself. If you feel good being alive, if you feel good to be here, then what you’re going to leave behind for other people is something that is beautiful!

"From now on I will seek my peace. After all, if we plant good things, we will reap good things."

-Peace Education Program Participant

Pinheiros Prison, São Paulo, Brazil

Prem Rawat: [voiceover]

This is the message that I am trying to deliver to the world today, that I have been doing for fifty-one-plus years now—and this year I’m going to be turning sixty. Maybe my body is aging, but my heart isn’t; my mind isn’t. And I want to take this message to as many people as possible.

Why? Because the joy that it brings them, the excitement that it brings them—just how they feel after they go, “Wow, somebody told me how it really is, not all these ideas, but how it really is—that, yes, my time on this earth is precious. That I’m alive, and that’s a blessing! And I need to accept that. And I need to understand what it means to live in peace."

"Peace gives me hope. Peace gives me love. Peace gives me a strength I’ve never known."

Because when somebody feels good inside of them, not only it ripples out to themselves, but to all the people around them, to the family, to the friends, to the colleagues—and this is what’s important.

"Mr. Rawat, your teachings have taught me to appreciate every day and to be thankful for what I have. In here, that means a lot. Thank you."

This is my effort, taking the message to people to make a change, to make a difference.

Happiness 00:05:12 Happiness Video Duration : 00:05:12

Prem Rawat: 

What makes you happy? Is it something you do that makes you happy? Is it a sequence of circumstances that makes you happy?

Because we know the word "happiness," but we haven’t truly felt what happiness really is. We know the word “freedom,” but we do not know how to be free. We know the word "kindness," but we don’t know how to be kind.

Happiness is a state of contentment.

Onscreen text:

Happiness

When you are content, not here, but here, in the domain of the heart—in the domain of the heart, when you are content, when this heart is content....

Let me tell you something. When you satisfy this, this gives you a gift. When you satisfy this, this gives you a gift—a very different kind of gift. The gift this gives you is, "More. More." And when you satisfy this, this gives you a gift, too.

When you satisfy this.... You go shopping; you see a suit; you see a dress? This goes, "Buy it. Buy it. Buy it; it's nice! You will—you will look so good in it. Buy it." So you buy it. After you buy it, it gives you a gift. You know what the gift is? "hmmm.... It’s not as nice as his suit."

You buy a new car; you are very happy; you’ve got a brand new car, "So nice," and you’re sitting in your car. And then all of a sudden, a better car comes up, and this gives you a gift: "Should have bought that." It’s called "the gift—the gift of dissatisfaction." This is the gift this gives you.

When you satisfy this, this also gives you a gift. When you satisfy this, this immediately gives you the gift of peace. "Here, peace!" When you satisfy this, this gives you a gift of, "Here. Enjoy this, a little happiness."

The day—the day you can smile and not know why you are smiling, that is the truest smile. The day you can laugh and not know why you are laughing, that is the truest laugh. And the day you can be happy and not know why you are happy, that is the day of, "Ah," the gratitude, "Thank you!"

That is the day you become really thankful because you don’t know what you did to deserve this, but you feel it, and you go, "Thank you! Thank you for being alive." That is the way to live.
