*Kifubon (寄付本) means book donation or contribution in Japanese.
The Kifubon project provides you a wonderful opportunity to directly share Mr. Prem Rawat’s message with people around Japan. We appreciate your generous support for past Kifubon projects and excited to announce the next stage of giving which will feature Mr. Rawat’s latest book, Hear Yourself: How to Find Peace in a Noisy World.
The Kifubon project continues to be a most cherished project at Bunya publishing, because it gives us, a small group of social activists, a chance to share a message of hope and strength and touch the hearts of thousands of people across Japan.

Through the Kifubon Project, Prem Rawat’s Japan Secretariat (Bunya) will present his most recent book, which encapsulates all of Mr. Rawat's thoughts, to those in need at orphanages and prisons across Japan. Wouldn’t you like to join us in this worthwhile endeavor to bring peace and hope to these places? Funds exceeding our primary donation goal will go towards the secondary goal of providing books to public libraries, particularly those for people living in areas suffering from natural disasters, such as the January 1st Ishikawa earthquake.
Prem Rawat’s friends in Japan and other countries around the world, have already generously donated 14,261 of his books to children's homes, children's hospitals, and prisons. The books were greatly appreciated with more than 1,500 people sending us letters of gratitude. Here are some comments from those letters:
“The story of The King and the Mouse was interesting!”
“For the first time, I realized how important breathing is.”
“It’s amazing how a gardener takes advantage of the problem of a bucket with holes.”
“I want to meet Mr. Rawat, who has been speaking about peace of mind all over the world for over 50 years!”
“I read this picture book to my children every night before they go to sleep!”
Our goal is to present 10,000 copies of Mr. Rawat’s most recent book to all the facilities mentioned above. Would you like to support this project and share Mr. Rawat’s message of “peace of mind" with children across Japan? Please visit our online store and purchase you donation tickets today!
