Breath Book

In 2010 David Passes had the idea of creating a book consisting of quotes from Prem Rawat’s addresses around the world on the subject of Breath. He was excited about presenting the book to Prem Rawat as a gift and as a limited printed edition to raise funds for The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF).

Once the quotes were laid out in verse form, David thought it would be beautiful to write the word Breath in calligraphy. With his usual charm and exuberance, he contacted some of the best calligraphers in the world, explaining the nature of the project and Prem Rawat’s message of peace. When they offered their services as a donation to TPRF, David was delighted and spread his reach further, approaching many more calligraphers worldwide. As the book evolved, the calligraphy included not just the word 'Breath' but whole quotes and extraordinary calligraphic designs.

From the beginning David had involved Bil Brooks and Andy Goodyer to help with the design. Together they elaborated the calligraphic elements to form exhilarating whole page spreads introducing colour and beautiful pictorial elements. David was delighted when he saw the final proofs. Sadly David passed away in September 2014 before the book was printed and bound, but no doubt he would have been thrilled to see the exquisite finished product.


The Prem Rawat Foundation addresses fundamental human needs so that people everywhere can live their lives with dignity, peace, and prosperity.

All contributions made via the "Donate" link go direct to TPRF, a 501(c)(3) U.S. non-profit charitable organization. The content of this fundraising page has been written and presented by Independent Fundraisers of TPRF.
