Editorial Reviews


What an extraordinary life the Maharaji has lived. The author has accomplished nothing short of the miraculous in bringing the biography of Prem Rawat to the world in such a personal and awesome way. I must be honest and tell you I had never heard of the man before reviewing this exciting book, but I will tell you now I feel like I know him and his message intimately. His words touched that deep and soft place in my heart and soul over and over again, as I got totally consumed in his life and message. He started sharing the wisdom of the Divine at age 3 and continued the work of his father at a very very tender age. Throughout his life he has helped millions to find that the answer to enlightenment and bliss is within one's self. The pictorial version of his life helped me to get a real feel for the boy who was Maharaji. I would recommend this special tell-all to anyone who wishes to learn about the life and times of a truly exceptional emissary of Light. Thanks Andrea, for introducing the man and his message to us all. Riki Frahmann PlanetStarz.com --http://planetstarz.com/mlt/index.php?year=2007&month=05&pg=33

This book tells the story of a truly extraordinary life.
Giovanni Vignola
While Cagan paints Prem Rawat's story with a broad stroke, the essence of his life is richly detailed through the intimacy of his words and unique message.

I was fortunate to obtain an advance copy from the publisher. First, let me say that this is Cagan's best book ever. She has finally found a topic that has enough breadth for her prodigious writing skills. The book gives the word "biography" a new value. Its fast paced, interesting, alive, the writing is very cinematic, and the reader is touched. I could not put this book down, last night, and had to keep reading and I intend to read it several times more.

The book opens with several statements by world leaders in support ot Rawat, including one from Shri Bhairon Singh Shekhawat, Vice President of the Republic of India, the world's largest democracy. This one particularly impressed me. Here is what he says:

"I'm convinced that the people of India and from other countries need to embrace in their hearts Prem Rawat's call to peace I would like to express my heartfelt feeling towards him as a most trusted and respected person who takes a message of joy to society and society puts it into practice. Doing so is the greatest success there can be in life. I want his message to reach the people around the world."

This set very high expectations for me as I started reading, and I must say that I was not disappointed.

The book opens with Prem arriving in the West from his native India, in 1971. It gives a fascinating account into what the young generation was like at that time, how intense and genuine their search was for finding peace and truth within themselves, and how powerful the encouter between them and Prem was.

The book then flashes back into the household of Prem's father and mother, in the 50s. Cagan's beautiful prose transports the reader into the foothills of the Himalaya. The reader then follows Prem as he grows up in this colorful family.

Format: Paperback
I have enjoyed biographies my whole life. The ones I have enjoyed the most are about people who have been faced with enormous challenges. The human side of the story particularly fascinates me: What created in these individuals the burning desire to accomplish their goal? What obstacles did they have to overcome? What motivated them to keep going? How did they feel about it? And what can I learn from them?

Peace Is Possible, by Andrea Cagan, tells just such a story. It is about Prem Rawat, a man whose single-minded goal in life has been to touch the lives of every person in the world to let them know that peace is possible if they will only look within themselves. He began his mission at the age of eight when his father and mentor, Shri Hans Ji Maharaj, passed away. (When I was the same age, I was in the third grade, and I must confess -- my life's goals were not quite as clear.)

For those readers merely looking for a rollicking good storyline, they will find it here. Cagan has apparently interviewed dozens of people who have known Rawat at various points in his life, and the book is filled with colorful anecdotes. All the things I like best about biographies - the challenges, the single-minded desire, the overcoming of obstacles, the motivation - are illuminated here as we follow the story from his early childhood in northern India to his present life as a world-renowned voice for peace and a beloved mentor for millions of people in over ninety countries.

For those who may also be looking for something more meaningful, they will find that, too. Cagan writes with positive affection, and in my opinion, does an excellent job of conveying Rawat's deeper message - that true contentment and joy in life are to be found within the heart.

Format: Paperback
Andrea Cagan's simple narrative provided me with an understanding of Prem Rawat's life and the numerous challenges he has overcome to make his message available to people around the world.

Plentiful quotes from Prem Rawat gave me a clear insight into the message itself and had me wondering whether the peace he talks about really is possible.

This book reveals a human being who has found a way to be true to himself without becoming a renunciate.

From child prodigy to internationally-respected advocate for the individual's right to experience peace, this compelling story needed to be told and deserves to be read.

If you've never read biography before, start with `Peace is Possible'.

Reviewed by Liam Ryan, Ireland.

This is an extraordinary book. At a time of ongoing war and the escalation of the American army deployment in the Middle East, a book bearing the title, Peace is Possible, is extraordinary. The story it tells, that of the life to date of Prem Rawat is an extraordinary story.

I let the book sit in my mind for a couple of days after my reading, just to digest the story and allow its meaning percolate and the word which insistently exerted itself in relation to this book is that it is an extraordinary story, certainly worthy of a read.

The book narrates in basic chronological order the life of Prem Rawat, also knows by the honorary title, Maharaji and extends back prior to his birth focusing on Mr. Rawat's father.

Mr. Rawat was born in Northern India in December 1957. His father, Shri Hans Maharaji, was a teacher of peace who has attracted a considerable following. The youngest of four sons Prem Rawat attended a Catholic school and starting speaking at his father's events from a very young age. Following his fathers death in July 1966, whilst only 8 years old and a young schoolboy, he assumed the position of teacher and master.

The book succeeds in depicting the extraordinary courage, strength and wisdom that this young man possessed to carry forward his fathers message which was now his own message. And his own mission in life. A deceptively simple message that Peace is Possible and that the teacher or master can help. Help not only in the sense of inspiration but hugely important by the teaching of four simple techniques which allow the individual to access that peace within themselves. His fundamental message of peace is that peace must commence within each individual human being.
