Governor of the State of New Mexico honors Prem Rawat’s achievements

Santa Fe, New Mexico, January 10 — Bill Richardson, Governor of the State of New Mexico, has issued a tribute to Prem Rawat, also known as Maharaji, in recognition of his accomplishments.

The Governor’s tribute says: “The Governor of the State of New Mexico, having learned of the outstanding achievement and exceptional accomplishments of Maharaji, does hereby extend congratulations and acknowledgement and further does herein direct that this official expression of pride be forthwith sent on behalf of the people of the State of New Mexico.”

For Linda Pascotto, President of The Prem Rawat Foundation, “This award concludes another banner year for Maharaji. This recognition from the Governor of the State of New Mexico is a sign of the growing interest which Maharaji’s message of peace is receiving all around the world.”

More than 1.4M people sought inspiration and guidance from Maharaji in the last 12 months, and more than 53,000 learned his techniques for finding peace within. His message is now made available in more than 88 countries and 70 languages. A few months ago, he was invited by members of the Italian Parliament to present his message of peace, and a few weeks later, he addressed a capacity audience of faculty, guests, and students at Harvard University’s Sanders Theatre.


The Prem Rawat Foundation has been holding free medical clinics in India and has sent relief supplies to refugees in Ivory Coast and to hurricane victims in Grenada. The Foundation is currently launching an aid program for tsunami victims in Southeast Asia.
