Renowned teacher and author Prem Rawat visits Google to discuss his book “Hear Yourself: How to Find Peace in a Noisy World.” The book aims to show readers how to quiet the noise of our busy lives to hear our own authentic voice—the source of peace.

The cacophony of modern life can be deafening, leaving us feeling frazzled and uneasy. In this book, Prem Rawat teaches us how to turn down the noise to “hear ourselves”—to listen to the subtle song of peace that sings inside each of us. Once we learn to truly hear ourselves and the voice of peace within, facing the noisy outside world becomes much more manageable.

The culmination of a lifetime of study, “Hear Yourself” lays out the steps we can use to focus on the voice within. Prem challenges us to embrace our thirst for peace and let go of expectations for how it should feel. With one straightforward yet deeply profound question, he helps us to focus—to be present: “Am I conscious of where I am today and what I want to experience in this world?”

If we allow ourselves to listen, what we hear is the extraordinary miracle of existence—an experience that transforms our relationship to life and everything in it. Packed with powerful insights and compelling stories, Hear Yourself introduces readers to an ancient line of practical wisdom that enlightens us to a simple way to listen. By doing so, we can profoundly change our understanding of ourselves, those around us, and our lives.
