    PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "Peace Is Possible" is
 published by Mighty River Press, from Dresher, Pennsylvania. J. Levin, CEO
 of Mighty River Press, said: "We are proud to publish this outstanding book
 about the life and message of Prem Rawat, an exceptional story that brings
 an important message of peace. In the troubled times in which we live, this
 is a particularly valuable book, written by Andrea Cagan, a well-known,
 best-selling author whose work focuses on topics that raise public
 awareness and social consciousness. I created Mighty River Press to publish
 high-quality contemporary books about self-discovery, with an emphasis on
 biographies of leading voices for peace and on inspiring books that help
 people discover their true nature. We have already received offers of
 international distribution from many countries and expect that this book
 will reach people in many languages and countries in the near future."
     "Peace Is Possible" is the first full and complete story of Prem Rawat,
 known also as Maharaji. It documents his extraordinary life, from growing
 up with a father who was a revered master, to the day he first addressed
 audiences at age three, to being discovered by hippies at his home by the
 Himalayan foothills when he was a child, to his dramatic arrival in the
 West at thirteen, to today. When Prem Rawat was six years old, his father
 and beloved teacher showed him a special gift, a practical means to
 discover a world of peace within him. When he was eight, his father passed
 away, and he accepted the responsibility of spreading the message of peace.
 He attended school during the week and addressed audiences in the tens of
 thousands on weekends. He has spent the last forty years inspiring millions
 of people from all walks of life and offering this same gift to people.
 Controversy has not eluded him: he was only eight when the Indian media
 wrote that he was a sixty- year-old posing as a child. Few journalists have
 gone beyond stereotypes and taken the time to get a real sense of what he
 offers. While his message is translated into more than seventy languages,
 it remains a little-known secret, spread mostly through word of mouth.
     Andrea Cagan has written, edited, and collaborated on more than fifteen
 books, including biographies of Diana Ross, Grace Slick, and Joan Lunden.
 She has brought seven books to the best-seller lists, including three New
 York Times #1 best sellers and one Los Angeles Times #1 best seller.
