Visions International is a non-profit organization dealing with the production of materials that promote Rawat ( Maharaji). It had a symbiotic relationship with Dunrite Productions of Thousand Oaks, California (formerly on the net at http://www.dunritegroup.com) a for profit company that did the actual production work though these have been subsumed by the Words Of Peace Global organisational changes.
A major source of income has been the sale of audio and video tapes, CDs and DVDs of Rawat's speeches which are the source of Rawat's "teachings." Local communities of Rawat's followers also had to pay to screen these videos/DVDs publicly though the audiences were mainly committed followers with a few peoplw who were interested in "learning more." Visions International also produced scripted videos that contained more than verbatim extracts of Rawat's speeches.
These are examples of Visions International catalogues.
This catalog offers a sampling of materials that introduce Maharaji and his message, and gives insight into the Knowledge he offers. These videos, audios, books and magazines are also available with Spanish translation, and selected materials are available in other languages. You will find further information on the last page.
"What I speak about is not embedded in words. If it were, it would have no substance; it would just be ideas, thoughts, and stories. One could hear it, perhaps contemplate it, and then,
as we do with most things, discard it and go on. What is different is what I actually offer people … I offer what I call Knowledge, the knowhow to be able to access the feeling within."
