At the 2014 Award Event in Central Hall Westminster, Prem Rawat said:
“All our efforts, whether they are sustainability, to feed the hungry, to bring clean water – in our own little way, we want to create a little heaven right here on earth. And who will ever blame us for thinking so wildly? Because it is a wild vision to want to create a little heaven for us and our fellow beings; and to leave a legacy of that heaven for the generations yet to come, so they keep on living the dream of creating the little heaven in their time, for their time ahead.”
