Sit straight in a cross-legged position. Place the tip of the right index finger over the tip of the left index finger—right palm facing down, left palm facing up—holding the remaining fingers with the thumbs. Raise the hands in front of the the heart center with the elbows relaxed down. Eyes are focused at the tip of the nose. Sit as straight as the greatest incarnation of Lord Buddha—be saintly, concentrate. Sing from the navel Aad Sach, Jugaad Sach, Hai Bhee Sach, Naanak Hosee Bhee Sach.

While pronouncing sach, strike the upper palate toward the rear, in the soft part (saying sat…), then role the tongue forward (…producing chhh)

Tune your inner ears so that the hammering of the hammer bones in the inner ears enables your brain to analyze the sound as you hear it. Continue for 2 1/2 hours. Relax. The mudra allows the infinite energy to come through. Chanting the mantra stimulates the upper palate with the tip of the tongue, tuning the thalamus and hypothalamus. Focusing on the tip of the nose causes the frontal lobe, which controls the personality, to become like lead. At one point the pain can become so unbearable, you cannot stand it. Then it breaks, and you have found what you are looking for, and that is forever. Nobody can take it away. Otherwise, you are a yo-yo, a floater—you see, you do not see, you love, you do not love, you hear, you have not heard. To grow roots, you must open yourself up.

Lecture
In life, we enter heaven through the gate of death, and must pay right on the spot—but you do not want to. This refusal to “pay-in” is the cause of pain in all its forms. Conquer pain through your power to achieve, knowing there is sunshine after every rainy day. See it as a process you are going through. When you do not latch onto maya or pain, you descend from the heights to renew, nurture yourself and bloom again, and experience Infinity as you again ascend. Slowly and gradually the psyche uplifts you to the heights and you are in bliss. Pain is a vehicle to achieve that. Pain is as powerful a part of life as ecstasy is. Love is expansion and fear is contraction. Both these forces create barriers. Love in its finite expression is a dead end—maya, the world. Love must be mixed with Infinity before you can reach ecstasy. As an apprentice to this process, you offer yourself in surrender to receive the Master’s Touch. You stand on the roots of the tree like a little bear, who reaches up to hold the trunk and climbs to the top-most branch to get to the bee hive, unaware of bee stings—intent on getting the honey. He drinks the honey, is satisfied, and descends to the ground, falling through branches which break his fall. After stretching and nurturing himself, the little bear remembers the taste of honey and the sense of achievement. He goes up the tree again and again, reaching that achievement in ecstasy, and nothing else matters. Life is a lie if you do not achieve your Self for yourself. That is your honey, your sweetness. You must achieve that Infinity where your identity is such a non-identity that it merges in Everything. Once you are that, you bless everybody. You are honored and in bliss—limitless, with no confinement, no territory, no demands, no requests. In this process you provoke, offer, surrender, achieve, and descend. Provoke, because everything is provocation, either to control or to receive. Offer, because you must decide how to offer, or present yourself. Surrender, because when you surrender, your working self becomes zero, shuniya. Surrender is the highest power to gain all that you want to gain. Achieve, because once you have a sense of achievement and say, “My God!”, if you convert that “My God!” into, “My Soul!” you have already found God. You have a soul—achieve it! When you find your soul for yourself, you are complete. Descend, because like a forklift, you may descend, go into the dirt and move it up. This descent is the highest state of mind and spirit. When the Age of Aquarius comes and people seek you out, you will have no time but to touch them and say, “Bless you!” to bring the entire psyche and being of a person into balance. That touch will create a state of, “Aad Sach, Jugaad Sach, Hai Bhee Sach, Naanak Hosee Bhee Sach,” original Truth,Truth through time, Truth now, and forever Truth. These must prevail through one touch. This mantra will give you the power of the Master’s Touch. There is no power or magic on this planet that can stop it. It has a permutation, combination, projection and power which brings the entire Prakirti, the existence, into the being of Purkha, the divinity. You will serve the creation of God, you will see God in everybody, in yourself, and in every facet of life.
