Meditation: NM422 A11020 Coordination of Body Mind by Spirit to Enter the Fall and the Winter Season

NM422 A11020 Coordination of Body Mind by Spirit GUIDED MEDITATION WITH THE MASTER  To Enter the Fall and the Winter Season  Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D. – October 20th, 2001

I have called you today, as these nine days are very auspicious. The moon is  crossing beneath the sun. It is a time to sharpen the mind. Why not to do it the  way of the century-old custom? It is not very difficult, and you will be very comfortable in the end.

NM0422 GUIDED MEDITATION WITH THE MASTER –

To Enter the Fall and the Winter Season  31 Minutes  (Sit straight in a cross-legged position. Bring your hands in front of your heart center, with the fingertips touching and the  palms spread.)  “Try to see how the energy moves. You will feel the reality of the body. Inhale deep and ride on the breath, in and out, long  and deep, as honestly as you can. Take your body—the inner being in this body, simply by meditative force. Do not try to  understand that you cannot do it. It is not difficult, but it is a great experience. Pull your mental body out of your body.  Just take it out. Just simply coordinate between you, your environments, your activities and your own preciousness.  Your mental body, when you command it, is very pure, very clear. And it is yours. It is not related to the physical activities,  although the mental body is with you. Things are corrupt only when you are in your physical body and your mental body  is not combined. So, do coordinate—you have that power, and take this out, out of your being. Time is with us, the wind  is behind us and virtuous we are.  It is a very special Saturday. Therefore the Saturn energy in the penetrating form of its being is passing through, irrespective  of any force or any effort. That is why I chose it. And we have a small time window only, that is why I am very quick and  not saying anything. So this breath has to be very long and down to the navel point. Deep in, and hold, and completely out.  The power we have is our virtue. Our virtue is extremely powerful. Our value is humongous. Value, we give! Virtues, we  experience! Our values are our values. The majority of the time we forget that we have values. But most of the time if we  practice these things, we remember our values. And once a person follows one’s own values, that is all divinity is all about.  So, keep the breath long, deep and evaluate yourself. Give yourself values. The first value you can give yourself is: I am  virtuous. I am beautiful. God created me in the best form. Thank God has given me health, happiness and wealth.  You know, you are a wonder of the world. Recognize the fact. Concentrate on these things.  Now comes the secret of the Shintoism, the Japanese faith. See that you are just a blade of grass, beautiful, green, and  you are covering your values. Start covering your values as a blade of grass, with an extreme sense of self-cooperation.  The tips of the fingers must meet so that circulation can coordinate the two parts of the body, and your valuable and  virtuous and wonderful body is right, at this time, under manual control, and your mental body is taken out.  The mental body is looking at your physical body as you are sitting. Practice this split. Once you can separate your mental  body and practice to separate it, as we keep on doing, there will be no problems—at the time of death you can split your  mental body and be free of karma. You will never have a rebirth again. That is guaranteed.  This is your reality. You have a physical body, you have a mental body and you have a body of bliss. When you separate  that, in-between you watch over this body. See how beautiful it is?  Your breath has to be very long and deep because your spiritual body, your physical body, your mental body and your being  are separate. You have never been taught this. You have never been told. You think you are one bundle. Feel the super and  extreme contentment. That will bring you prosperity. Ride on your breath and just feel supremely contented. That will give  you the prosperity that you are looking for. It’s no use living rich, it’s no use living poor, it’s no use being great if you cannot  demonstrate to yourself that you can separate your bodies as you can separate that strength. And you can not only  visualize, but experience it. In this experience, you are the Supreme.

Every religion goes round and round and round and talks one thing only—self-consciousness. Self-consciousness is just a  phrase to us. Let us consider what self-consciousness is: When we know we have a spiritual body, we have a mental body,  we have a physical body.  Your mental body and your radiant body—have you ever put them together? They are yours. Nobody will know it! But  you will be charged, and recharged with the energy. What is more beautiful on this Earth than you? What is more pure  and shining than you? What is more cool and calm and quiet than you? In the Eyes of God you are everything.  Take a long deep breath and ride on it. Fortune and misfortune are two wavelengths. By yourself it pulses—you can put  your body on any wavelength you need. In common man’s language we call it repetition.  The body’s membranes, the body’s re-adjustment and the body’s main nervous system are going to adjust now. You are  within that time. Please breathe long and deep and cure yourself forever. Heal! Take long deep breaths and ride on it, and  keep your mental body away. Only look at where the tips of the fingers meet.  Circulate your breath. Keep the mental body separate. Concentrate on the physical body, in the realm of personal  consciousness. You are beautiful, you are bountiful, you are blissful, you are virtuous, you have vigor, self-control. Apply  all that!  The central nerve in the navel point can be touched by a deep breath. A split mental body can give you a vast area of  coexistence. Your all five channels and tattvas are totally balanced at the moment. Your arc line is clear.  Can you believe the little bit that we have done? We suffer here, there, everywhere. What for? America needs peace, it  needs love. It needs tons of smiles. It needs us—we the people.  Our window is up at 12 o’clock. The rotation of the planet will change the energy and it will change everything. Now is  the time. Breathe long and deep. Get it when it is available. Bring in you the coziness. Colorful coziness. Split the light inside. Bring in the special Breath of Life. If you know how to concentrate, meditate and breathe, this is the time.”  To end  “Breathe in deep and hold it tight. Breathe out. Breathe in deep and hold it tight. Breathe out. Breathe in all the virtues of  God and breathe out peace for the world. Breathe in long and deep, hold it, love it, feel it, and then let it go. Now put all  the pressure on the fingertips. Inhale deep. Put a tight grip on the fingers. Let it go. Inhale deep. Make the fingers very tight.  Feel the purpose of life and prosperity. Let it go. Inhale deeply, exhale and relax.”  This time may come in this month next year. My idea was just to give you a re-charge. And this is a very special  time. The whole Eastern World is going to celebrate the Festival of Light. During the ten days of this festival people  will do nothing but breathe, meditate, eat the right food and show gratitude to young girls, the mothers of  innocence. When you see a young girl, you see the creative purity. Purity has many forms, but creative purity is  only the young girl. The source of humanity is that young girl, who will grow and one day have a family and children.  America is young all the time and does not care. There is no rule, no virtue, because we are not a very meditative  nation. But now we are learning a lesson. We got chili in our nose. Now we know we have to change. One day  you will come out and realize how virtuous you are, how valuable you are, how this precious time is given to you  so you can act on yourself so that you can turn from human into an angel. You are going to get kicked. That is a  fact you cannot avoid. Every moment you have to concentrate on your purity.  I asked a Japanese master, “What is Shinto?” He replied, “It is a personal religion.”“Can I know about it?” He picked  a blade of grass and said, “What do you see?” I was a little cleverer than he thought and I said, “God.” He asked,  “Where is it?” I said, “In this blade.”“You know Shinto. That’s it! Thank you.”  There is nothing more in teaching. This is all it is. If you cannot see God in all you cannot see God at all. When that  monk picked up a piece of grass and said, “What do you see?” a normal reply would have been, “A blade of grass.”  What is the most beautiful virtue man has? Matching intelligence! If you can match intelligence with another person  you are the most valuable, virtuous and wonderful person. Love is when you temporarily get along with a person.  Virtue is in matching intelligence–not values, where everybody differs. Match intelligence!

Meditation: KWTC 880701 The Moon & Sun Energy

 

SUMMARY MEDITATION:
The moon is for expansion. The sun is for completion. Birth and death relate to the sun. Maintenance,  expansion, growth, color, shape and form: all that is moon. But the moon by itself has no power; it reflects the sun. And sun by itself has no power; it needs the moon. Do you understand the rational part of it? The irrational part of it is very simple. Let us experience that.

3 minutes: I just want to tell you how your

body can create havoc it does not fit in. (The
thumbs press upward on the respectivecheekbones and the fingertips meet to form a bridge shading the face. The elbows are relaxed down near the body.) And now close your eyes and sing the song of the noble woman. (Class sings “Nobility.”)
You sang that song, you understood. Relax. And you have understood it better than you ever understood it before. This is how the body fits in.

7 minutes: Now understand another situation. (Touch the little finger to the thumb on each hand. The other fingers are extended and joined.) And take these other three fingers and put them on your forehead. (Palms facing in toward the head.) Put on the tape Bhand Jameeai. The three fingers must touch the forehead right in the center. See what it does to you. These are certain things, which you don’t do, that you have to do.

7 minutes: Now, I’m just telling you about the body energy and focal points and how the chakras work with the tattvas and how the tattvas work with the gunas. That’s the basic woman that we have to understand. Please place your hands as if you were pulling something very heavy.

(Make fists of both hands. Extend the right arm out to the side and up at a
sixty-degree angle with the elbow straight. Bend the left elbow and bring the forearm
up across the front of the body at a sixty-degree angle. Pull it back as it stretching a
bow). Play Ab Jan Upar Ko Na Pukarai. These are things you have recited over the
years and I’m just telling you how, with a body posture, the energy flow and the
direction of things can change. Get into archer pose while sitting. Now make the
archer pose tougher and tougher. I’m going to give you certain exercises, certain kriyas,
which have been kept extremely guarded and secret and have not been given to humans because they are not considered worthy. But the faculty of the word and the befitting posture of the body can create the divine impact.

16 minutes: Take Bibi Bani’s Mere Man Lochai with Aad Sach Jugad Sach interspersed.

 

Now lock yourself. (Grasp the top of the left shoulder with the right hand. Bring the left arm under the right arm next to the body and grasp the right shoulder with the left hand.)

You know the greatest problem with a female is that when she confronts insecurity, she gets a headache. Insecurity in woman means a headache. Otherwise there’s no headache for a woman. She’s not made to have a headache. A secure woman can never have a headache. It is a biological, physical phenomenon, which represents a tremendous amount of insecurity. When you are very insecure about something or you have a headache, just feel “Happy am I, healthy am I, holy am I” and it will go away. It works like Tylenol.

Close your eyes and let us sing and see where we go. Tighten the shoulders. Tighten the grip. Sing it really from the navel point. We are just experimenting. It is no big deal. (Class sings Meraa Man Lochai.) You have gone through this. Please relax.

Meditation: KWTC04-960627-Soul and Identity

Put your Jupiter fingers out and start doing “Humee hum brahm hum”
and move them, move them, move them, move them. Look at the tip of your nose.

And see that you see both index fingers moving. I am in a perfect posture right now. It’s so great.

Look at the tip of the nose and those two fingers moving and chant what we are going to play for you and you will have fun.

Begin music: Humee Hum Brahm Hum

 

The two fingers must be seen from the one tenth of the eyes on the tip of the nose.
Inhale. Hold the breath. Move the index finger very fast. Hold the breath, move fast, circulate. Round and round, round and round, round, round. Exhale. Inhale deep. Don’t cheat. Hold it tight. Move. Round and round. Fast. Fast. Your spine can dance. That’s what it meant. Exhale.

Inhale again. Go ahead. Do your best. Spine must adjust itself. Now is the hard time. Do it right. Exhale. Inhale deep again. Deep deep deep deep deep, you go. Powerful, faster. Try your best. Exhale. This is your last chance. Inhale deep, hold, move. Move, move, move. Relax.

M134 970325 Working on the Upper Chakras

M134 970325 Working on the fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Chakras

“Serve people. Don’t expect results. Don’t put your harpoon into another person. Just serve. People will love you. It will be an everlasting friendship. ” YB

This kriya will change your chakras and make you better able to move through your cbakra system. This will make you a better human being.

1. Sit up straight like a yogi. Keep your eyes open and look straight ahead. Use your diumb to tightly lock down your Mercury (pinkie) and Sun (ring) fingers of each hand. Extend the Jupiter (index) and Saturn (middle) fingers up straight.

Bend your elbows. Press your elbows and upper arms very tightly against your rib cage. This balance of force will consolidate your position so that when the hands revolve, your whole body will move. Revolve your hands rapidly in circles at a race of three circles per second. Keep moving, don’t stop. 5 112 Minutes.

Correctly and rapidly doing the movement will cause the spine and neck to loosen up and get adjusted. It will cause the armpits to sweat, which will release toxins from the brain. Eleven minutes of this exercise done correctly every day is good for your heart.

2. Stretch your arms out straight to the sides. Right palm faces upward to the heavens; left palm faces downward to the earth. Allow no bend in the elbows. Close your eyes and look at the tip of your nose. Let the body balance itself. Become solid like stone. Don’t move. 6 Minutes.

This position creates a balanced magnetic field between the earth (left hand facing downward) and the heavens (right hand facing upward). You must stay steady. The temptation to move can become very strong. Go through the discomfort so that you can train your brain to overcome pain by issuing its own natural pain reliever. Open up this channel and you can train yourself to conquer pain.

3. Inhale and interlock your fingers. Lift your arms up to form a circle over the top of your head, like an aura. Exhale. Hold this position and whistle along with the instrumental version of Ardas Bhaee on the recording called Healing Sounds of the Ancients #5 for 6 Minutes.
To finish:

Inhale, hold the breath for 15 Seconds, while you keep your fingers interlaced and stretch your arms up so high that you lift up your entire body. At the same time, expand your rib cage outward. Exhale.

Inhale, hold the breath for 10 Seconds, repeating the stretch upward, while opening your chest cavity as wide as possible. Exhale.
Last time: inhale, hold die breath 10 Seconds and slowly and strongly twist to the left and slowly and stronslv twist

Meditation: LA779 – 19930916 – Kriya to Create a Miracle for Yourself

Yogi Bhajan September 16, 1993, Los Angeles, CA

Kriya to Create a Miracle for Yourself
“Everything which happens in nature teaches you something! Every person you meet, you can learn something if you are sensitive and conscious…. The consciousness is a real balancing act, where you, the environment and your object, all three you can balance intuitively.” —Yogi Bhajan

Raise the elbows up and out to the sides, forearms parallel to the ground with the hands flat in front of the Heart Center, palms face down, fingers point towards opposite hand. Saturn Fingers (middle fingers) do not touch, stay ½ inch (1 cm) apart.

Focus the eyes at the Tip of the Nose. Experience seeing the Blue Pearl.

Breath is unspecified. Concentrate.

Immediately begin the next posture.
7 min

Maintain the posture and eye focus.

Listen to Meditation by Wahe Guru Kaur.

7 min

To End:
Inhale deep, hold the breath for 20 seconds. Stretch the spine consciously vertebrae by vertebrae from the lower tailbone up to the neck. Exhale. Repeat three more times. Relax and shake the hands and body wildly. Spread the energy to all the facets of the body. Continue for 1 minute. Relax. Then, move just the toes and the fingers fast, balance what has been achieved. Continue for 1.5 minutes.

Comments: “The forehead will start becoming heavy like a lead in exactly three minutes. That means your posture is correct…. Let the fingers not meet and let your eyes not change, let your spine be straight so that the spinal fluid can start flowing. Concentrate and whatever pain is happening, welcome it. Whichever nerve is bothering, welcome it. It is not bothering you, it is straightening itself, it is straightening its meridian, it’s straightening the flow of energy.” —Yogi Bhajan

It is not my projection that you are a human being.  But you are.  And as a human, you are what you are.  Good, bad, right, wrong, happy, unhappy, sick, healthy, there are many facets.  And if we look to all facets you have, in spite of all facet, there is a one fact.  Are you you?  And that’s not true.  You know when you deal with your life as you want to deal with your life, you have the right to deal with your life, the way you want to look, the way you want to eat, the way you want to be, the way you want to suffer, the way you want to be …  Whatever you do and whether you are born to belong to God or God belongs to you, something like that, but are you you?  Are you a bunch of solidified, (?) ideas, which cannot change.  Think about it.

All what you have become is, somebody which you are not.  The circumstances, the experience, the sicknesses, the betrayals, the treacheries, the happiness, friendship, brainwash, whatever you are going to call it, I am not going to blame anybody.  But, I am sixty four year old and I have constantly fight.  I had a big fight with this thing that “I am me, I am not an opinion, I am not an action, I am not a status, I am not a institution, I am not real, I am not not real,..”  Beyond all what is imaginable, in existence, in feelings, in reality, in non-reality, still I hold myself as me.  Can you even think of it.  But what is the idea?  I mean to say what do you think you are?  There is a one place for you within you where you can hang in and not be touched.  You do not know the joy of it, you do not understand.  This is how it starts.

“I have a wife, I have children, I have a boyfriend, I have a sexual friend, I have a married man…”

What, what have you, you think.  Whatever you have is a gift.  It’s not yours.  Gift is never personal.  Enjoy it, have it, do whatever you want to do with it, I am not interfering.  I am not quoting ethics to you, but gift is a gift.  If you ever take gift as yours, you will drift into a pit from you will never come out.  If wife thinks husband is a gift, if husband thinks wife is a gift, they will never fight.  Gifts don’t fight.  Do they fight?  Have you ever looked in the mirror how much you spend money on being beautiful?  Have you seen on your behavior how much energy you spend being idiot?  Have you, have you ever understood?  One day I was laughing, there was a doctor and she was a doctor.  Husband and wife were doctors.  And they came as my guests and they started fighting with each other.  I didn’t say anything, I enjoyed it.  It was a free movie.  Soap opera.  And she said,

“You are stupid, you have come in the presence of a holy man, you shut up.”

He say, “You shut up, I want to have ask question.”

And neither he asked question nor he shut up, nor she could shut him up and they had a half-an-hour at the most beautiful show, free of cost.  And I said,

“Who gave them the degree?  I mean who made them PhDs?” 

The lady was MD and man was PhD.  (?) very successful people.  He works for a very high classy white post and she is a medical doctor.  And they both had a quarrel with each other.  And today I ask one of my girl, I said, may I ask, because I saw somebody having the bangs over the glasses, I mean to say, (?) it was just like the dog which can’t see.  So naturally it created a curiosity in me (?) and I said,

“Could you tell me why people put these bangs?”

Because that creates fear in your personality.  It’s a very psychological defective thing to cover your forehead.  This area should never be covered, doesn’t matter what you do, and she said,

“To not show these wrinkles.”

Ha, don’t show wrinkles, but you will be always be phobic.  Look at the exchange of price.  Because this triangle is the porous bone, which is meant for light during the day and hairs are bad conductor of heat and electricity and both won’t go.  It is amazing.  The only first time in the world this psychology was used by (?) to slave the Chinese population and he used this psychology that any, every Chinese woman will have like that, (?) you saw the doll bangs?  And every man will be shaved up to half head and if not, they can be slaughtered on the spot.  It was used as a psychology, it’s a what you call this, fear therapy.  For generations.  Now I didn’t know it was a fashion.  I didn’t have to do anything with it, because I don’t have bangs, so what do I know.

But, you know, we want to hide things, what is wrong having wrinkles, tell me?  What’s so bad about it?  I mean you are forty five year old and you have wrinkles.  Think of those who died at twenty-two, without wrinkles.  Ha?  They are dead and gone.  Twenty-two.  They never had wrinkles.  And how much you can avoid wrinkles?  And what is so bad dying?  What is so bad getting old?  (?) that’s bad being you as you.  You will never accept you.  You know, I mostly I don’t speak very frankly, because you will be hurt.  Then I am supposed to say things in between, you know, read between the lines.

How more stupid a person can be in intelligence and in consciousness when you don’t accept yourself?  I will never dress myself for anybody.  Never.  Never.  I like to look beautiful to myself.  I want to look beautiful to me, to my Guru, to my God, to my consciousness.  I want to be excellent and elegant for myself.  Not for anybody, who the hell is anybody can do me anything?  If I don’t have me, everything else of mine for anybody is as wrong as a lie can be.  And when you start, first step on untruth, how much you can make it?

Think sometime, just understand how stupid we are and how much false we live and then we expect everybody to be truthful.  Then we expect everybody to love me and love us and so we can live happily thereafter.  I mean, you have stories to believe, but for God’s sake, understand were is the challenge.  Challenge is just to be you.  In the all hotchpotch of this planet and all teachings and feelings and, you know somebody was telling me today we are the pioneers in this and we are pioneers in this, and we are not selling ourself right and I said, “Thank God, we are not selling ourself right, wrong, even.”  We are not.  We are not selling ourself, but where they are going to go?

Where this humanity is going to go?  They don’t even answer.  We have their answer.  Why not do we wait?  Have patience.  One day everybody has to drink yogi tea whether you like it or not.  There is no way, there is no way ultimately to get rid of the stress and move your liver other than this formula which is thousand and thousands of years old.

There was once a time, the Sikhs’ home you go, you smell yogi tea pot from two blocks.  Now not.  Not at all.  Now they drink coffee, I know.  It’s not that, now they are rich.  Now even yogi tea is a instant yogi tea, they never drink.  Other people drink.  But our people don’t drink.  A one thing for centuries a man found out a formula, not I found it, I just thought it will be better for liver.  Just for liver.  It’s a good, it’s tasty, it is nice, no, nobody drinks it.  But in those days, when we were young in ‘60s we were totally over rotten by drugs and drugged by those stuff, we wanted to recuperate, then we understood.  We took it as a savior.  But now we don’t.  Now it shall always save you.  Something is not to sell, not to sell, not to push, not to…  It is something to have.  Carrot juice have to have.  You don’t like carrot juice, don’t like carrots, (?) fine.  Nobody is going to ask you to like carrots.  Zucchini, you have to have.

There are certain thing in this nature you have to have.  You know I go to restaurants, it’s very funny.  You ask any plate, doesn’t matter what, they put little parsley over it.  Have you seen that little thing?  And the first thing the idiot does, take that parsley, put it on the side.  Can you believe this?  Can you understand that?  The idea is to pick the parsley and eat it, chew it first and then eat the dish.  The parsley on the tip of the dish is the pre-demand of the dish.  The maker knows it, the eater doesn’t.  I was that day eating with a person and dish came with a parsley on the top and he picked it up and I picked it up.  He say,

“You want it sir?”

I say, “Yes.”  And I say, “Give this old dish to me.”

“Why?”

I say, “You can’t eat it.  Because this parsley should be eaten first and then you eat the stuff.  Because the parsley, little parsley will go, it will stimulate the kidneys and this dish you are eating is heavy, it will clog the kidneys.  Maker is not a idiot, you are an idiot.  Parsley is for the health of the kidney.  That’s what they put there.  This, this is not a decoration piece.”

This little thing…  Weren’t we all right without Siri Ved?  We didn’t have any problem.  Now it is okay?  Now.  I think he doesn’t eat parsley at all.  Okay?  Now.  I didn’t touch it, don’t worry.  Now wait a minute now, this, you mean this is bad and that’s good.  Is this guy American?  Can you check his…?  Can you check from which planet he has come?  I mean, I can’t believe he is with me for twenty two years never one day he doesn’t do this.  It’s amazing.  Now you don’t hear it at all.  First, there was something, no, no, no, no, it is all his, he seeks attention in all this (?).  It’s a psychological sickness, it’s (?) nothing, nothing so wrong, it’s okay.  Yeah, now what?  Now something is wrong with your head, that’s the problem.  There is nothing wrong with the system.  System can always be put to order.  Now what?  Okay?  No?  Yeah?  Little bit.  See this is what he is going to do.  Somebody went to pick up a girlfriend.  He started, she started brushing the hair.  This is what Siri Ved does.  When the class time happens, this is what he does.  Some wire is loose, something is not connected, so everybody knows who Siri Ved is.  He is a funny guy.  Are you married or divorced?  Maybe some woman can change your head, God knows.  Okay now?  Is it okay?  So now Siri Ved is recognized?  Now give him a hand.

You have to have carrot juice and you have to eat carrot, if you need your teeth.  There is no, no substitute for it.  There is no substitute for zucchini.  There is no substitute for yogi tea, there is no substitute for yogurt, there is no substitute on this planet for turmeric, the most sexiest, healthiest healing herb on this planet.  There is no substitute for (?), no, no.  There is no substitute for (?), doesn’t matter you jump up, down, hate it or like it.  It doesn’t matter.  It has the aspirin and it has the (?) quinine, and which controls the nervous system and which controls the blood thickness and thinness, according to the weather.  It’s very precise formulas.  There is nothing you can do.

There are certain things in life you have to have.  You have to be your own doctor for a while.  And then when something fails go to a doctor.  You can’t be waiting “All right, I blow up everything and then I go to a doctor.”  It won’t happen.  It will never work out, you have to have a cold shower whether you like it or you hate it, doesn’t matter.  There is no medical human system that you can open up your capillaries other than cold shower.  And cold shower means cold shower.  Cold shower doesn’t mean (?).  This not a cold shower.  I saw somebody taking a cold shower (?) I say, “What?  What happened?”

‘I have taken cold shower.”

I say, “This is no damn cold shower.  Get in.  And now, massage your whole body.”

“It’s very cold.”

“That I know.  I follow the rule.  Come on.  And you massage your body under this damn cold water till your body tells you it is no more cold.  That’s the cold shower.”

It means all the capillaries are open and ‘Come on, I was waiting, where were you?  Today is your birthday, you have to sit here and meditate by my side.’  Then look great.  Right?  And straight?  Right?  And look, and just like, like a yogi, right?  Good.  And let everybody do anything but you have to keep doing.”

That’s a cold shower.  It means all the organs in the body the capillaries are open and blood supply has been resumed and the blood has come to the outer skin, to fight out the cold, it means no wrinkle, no that (?) what they call it, A-something?  (?)

Student:  (———-).

YB: (?) something, all the money can be saved.  There is no need to be stupid and spend those hours and hours and dollars and dollars.  On one Saturday when you are off, you have to take couple pounds of yogurt and lemon and turmeric and make a powder, like a paste.  And put it on your body, let it dry.  Let it dry.  And ladies, inside out.  You (?) understand what I am saying?  And then, you use water and couple hours to take it off.  And you will have a skin of a baby.

So there are certain rules.  There are certain ways to life.  Yeah, take (?) oil, massage your body.  Right?  Go under cold shower, you will be on fire.  And avoid (?) otherwise you will go to emergency hospital.  No way.  But if you can avoid that, and massage yourself with a (?) oil and go under cold shower, your body will be on fire, for couple minutes.  But you will not hurt.  You will not have millions of problems which you can otherwise get.  Because it will penetrate into the whole system and take care of you.  Be yourself, something for yourself.  Mentally, physically, spiritually, these are the three things you have.  If your spirit goes off, you will be depressed.  If your mind does not provide the caliber, you, you will be tired.  If your physical body doesn’t come through, you will look stupid.  Doesn’t matter how dressed up you are (?), moment you go to a certain place or certain talk or party, (?), and you will start falling apart.  What is the use of that?  I mean, what is this God, God you are all the time crying when you (?) cannot handle your own things into one gear?

Without taking care of the body and it’s nervous system and it’s circulatory system and it’s glandular system, you will never have a body.  Without opening up the Chakras, without meditating, clear the subconscious becoming conscious of your whole system and being, you will have no caliber of mind.  And without invoking in you the experience of ecstasy, you will never command the spirit when you need it.  And you will fail.  You will become a victim of your own scandal.  You don’t need enemies.  I don’t believe any enemy you need.  I think you are your own enemy.

I am not interested in anything, I am very interested in the aura of a student when I see the frequency and the arcline are man matching I take a very personal interest, “Hey don’t do this.  Hey, don’t go this way, hey, stop, be yourself, hey,”  You know.  Sometime they listen, sometime they don’t.  When they don’t, so be it.  It’s not my responsibility.  I don’t want to control anybody, because I don’t want to control myself.  I want to be a free person, independent person.  I want to elevate myself, I want to enjoy myself, what myself is.  I want everybody to do it.

How come you start with a man and a husband and a wife and a beloved and a lover and whatever and after two, three, four, five, six years you draw knives at each other.  Why?  Because you lack communication.  Because the development of you is you, him is him, her is her, it is never together.  You do not know as human to develop yourself in unisonness.  Develop.  I want to do what I want to do, I want to think what I want to think.  And you know we feel that if I ask you to listen to me, and you listen to me, it’s a slavery.  Why you go to college then?  Just to learn.  It’s always better to listen to a learned person and experienced and become learned.  Only listening is not enough.  Experience it.  If it’s wrong, go back and say,

“You told me this, I did this, look hell has created.” Face the person.

Learning is a experience process, learning is not a philosophy.  It’s not a bookish knowledge.  If it’s a (?) bookish knowledge, there are libraries, you don’t need anything.  You don’t need a teacher.  And teacher is not to be worshipped.  That is where you are most stupid western in the world.  Teacher is not to be worshipped.  Teacher is to be challenged.  Teacher is to ask questions, teacher is to ask him, “Tell me.”

You western, God knows what has gone wrong with you.  (?) Swamiji, (?), what (?) will do for you, nothing.  It’s such a word I can’t believe it.  I went to this World Parliament, everybody started touching my feet I say,

“I am going to fall, I cannot perfectly healthy yet.  Don’t do this.”

Just, oh it is, it’s a, it’s a, what they say,

“It is a tradition to fall at your feet.”

I say, “No, no, no, no, no.  It’s a tradition to fall at my feet to learn something.  Not to make me fall.”

You know, I am not that kind of a teacher.  If you have met me, ask me question, I will give you the answer.  We’ll be very lucky.  I’ll teach you something to be a better person.  That is my play.  This, this, too much for me, I say, I have my staff, I have my people, take care of me, I’ll come with ten, fifteen people, I am all well taken care of, there is no problem.  I am very well organized person.  Okay?  You want to learn something?  Learn from me and then experience it, and then enjoy it, and if doesn’t work, call me.  You need to respect your teacher so that you can become a learned.  Not a slave.  But here, either it’s a question, question, question, or it’s a hum-hum-hu (?), both don’t work.  Ask question, experience, ask question, experience, ask question, experience, if it’s a wrong ask further questions.  Tell your thesis of life and say,

“Well, you told me this, Mr.  I followed you and look this is has happened.  It’s not working.”

That is the way to learn in spirituality.  It’s not a matter of trust, it’s a matter of knowledge.  That’s why lot of you freak out when I say don’t trust me.  I said very openly.  Because moment you start trusting me, it is, (?) the snake is on my neck, then you are free. That we don’t want.  I want you to enquire, work hard and experience yourself.  Why you are trusting me?  Because you don’t want to do the homework.  You want the easy path, “Ha, Yogiji said this, Yogiji….”

Yogiji said this, why he said it?  Check it out.  Does it work for you, it doesn’t for you, challenge him.  Tell me I am a stupid, I’ll prove it to you  I am very wise, in two second, I’ll nail you so bad you can’t believe it.  Yeah.  The relationship between a father and a child is for inquiry.  But there is a difference.  One day the son will challenge the father.  And it’s, it will happen.  The son will grow and the sun will set.  Father will diminish, deplete and the son will grow.  But in a teacher and student relationship, student will shine and the teacher will shine with it.  So it’s a very futuristic investigation and investment.  A real teacher, doesn’t matter what the temptation is, shall never betray you.  Never.  If he betrays you for the sake of temptation, he is not your teacher.  Take it granted.  Because his investment is not in now, it is in his tomorrow.  And mind you one thing, if you ever see your teacher, have some buffers around you.  You are not going to have a good time.  Very rarely you will expect a teacher to be nice.  Because first thing is, he is going to see the defect and he (?) get on your neck.  First thing.  It’s a, as the stone and the chisel meet, comes spark.  Moment the teacher will meet you as a teacher, first (?) ceremony, that’s different, once the teacher will meet you as a teacher, he say,

“Hey, what are you doing?”

“No I am fine.”

“No, no, you are not.  What’s going on?”

And that’s how it starts.  And then you will try to deny and he will try to coax you to death, finally you will say this is happening and then there comes the shower left and right, up and down.  Because idea is either you will learn from time and the bitterness of it, or you can learn from a teacher and save the bitterness of it.

Life is a practical challenge.  Life is not what you and I are relating like okay, we go to the class, we pay few bucks and is over with.  That’s not life.  Life is to get rid of the garbage and come out clean.  Get it, it is your right.  Be free, be frank.  Because teacher is today, you are tomorrow.  Remember this.  Teacher has no tomorrow.  If he has no tomorrow, or he has a tomorrow without you, then he is a preacher, he is not a teacher.  Then you are falling around guy for wrong purposes.  Teacher is a investment, of his total ability in you and there is no relationship between you and teacher.  Teacher job is to chisel you and your job is to not try to get chiseled and his job is or her job is to chisel you to your death.  And your job is to give him run around and make all kind of excuses.  And make a “”No, no, no, I mean, na, na, na…” then it ultimately comes to such a first degree language that you won’t find a way out.

Remember one thing in your life.  Everything around here is a teacher.  Blossoming of the flower, fragrance thereof, opening of the bud, changing of the weather, everything which happens in the nature teaches you something.  Every person you meet, you can learn something if you are sensitive and conscious.  And let us see why we let that beautiful experience pass by?  We have to be contemplate ourself into a kind of ecstasy, so that we can be intuitively sensitive to find out the truth.  Just by the very touch.  Understand?  How we can develop that?

Tonight is a hard night.  Anybody has to go early or has a baby-sitter waiting for you or something like that or you are going to stick round?  What, up to what time you are available?

Student:  (———-).

YB:  Nine.  Okay.  We will try to do whatever we can, okay?  Yeah.

Student:  (———-).

YB:  No, no, no, no, no, no.  Garbage you, you always find, there is, God cannot create one thing.  And you therefore cannot create one thing.  Whereas your wise, there is unwise with you, where you are right, there is unright with you, where car is moving, there is a brakes there.  So basically, how much you can control your emotions, commotions, your thoughts, because your thoughts are not under your control.  Your intellect, intellect is not under your control.  Your consciousness is under your control.  So intellects leaves all the thoughts.  Millions of thoughts, and those thoughts do become emotion, feeling, desires and your activity.  You can’t kill yourself for that.

So you have to understand that you have three personalities.  You have a real personality, you have a working personality, and one is your fantasy, fantasy.  So you have to see are you in too much in fantasy, or you are too much into your working personality, or you are too much in your reality.  Can you bring balance if you can’t take help?  Otherwise you will be off.  You will be scattered, you can’t make it.  Because practically life demands reality, practical working reality in balance.  So, if you are too much thinking that bring it down, if too much scared and practical you can’t match up to your working personality and every time your boss is saying you are not making it, then you try to see what you are doing is not right.  You understand?

Student:  (?) don’t understand (?) said your consciousness (?) under control.  What do you mean by that?  I don’t understand (?)

YB:  The conscience is an aware balance act, where you, the environment and you object, subject, environment are three, you can balance intuitively.  That’s consciousness.  It’s a mathematical formula.  I, this other person, is another person’s environment and my environment must bring it to balance.  It can’t be, I force him, or he forces me.  It can’t be done.  You have to come to a mutual understanding.  And mutual understanding not in two.  Mutual understanding in three.  And that’s where everybody goofs.  You, the object, you are the subject, there is a object, two and the environments.  Somebody called somebody on the telephone,

“Honey, you love me?”

She said, “I do.”

“You do?”

She said, “Yes, I do.”

“So?”

“I am missing you.”

She say, “I am missing you too.”

And he said, “You come now.  If you won’t be in two hours, I’ll commit suicide.”

Telephone banged.  She left.  There was a storm.  He knew it.  But she just to prove it, started.  Got stuck by avalanche, never made it.  He never shot himself.  That stupid lover should have known the environments are not cohesive.  And she should have known the environments also have a vital part, if she has to go and meet him, environments must permit it to meet.  So if two people are in mad love or real love or understanding or relationship, it is human to involve the environments into it.  And those who do not involve environments are very unconscious people.  Does it make it clear?

Student:  (———-).

YB:  That’s okay.  Little is enough.

So let us sit down please, and balance our hands but our saturn finger, the second finger must not touch, but should have about, it’s called plug difference.  Plug difference is less than half an hour per half an inch.  You have to make your hands like this and very accurate, but must not meet, but it should not be too much away, it should be just they call plug difference.  Plug difference is less than half an hour, half an inch.  Seven time thinking of the hour, because see how much your psyche can affect.  Because at that time there was half an hour of your going to meet your baby-sitter, right?  Accurate?

Now.  Bring your eyes and see how the body will give you what you don’t want to otherwise get.  Now, bring your eyes to the tip of the nose.  Down there, from there down there you will find a little blue space.  It’s called ‘Blue Pearl’ or ‘Pearl of Life’ or ‘Pearl of ….’ there are so many things for this one little thing, it doesn’t mean anything, it’s just a matter of experience.

If your posture will be correct, your front lobe, the forehead, will start becoming heavy like a lead within exact three minutes.  That means your posture is correct.  Kindly look deep at your tip of the nose and below, keep your fingers and don’t let them meet, they will meet, mind you I am warning you .  I’ve done it, so I know it.  The fingers will meet.  Let them not meet and let your eyes not change, let your spine be straight so that serum can start flowing, spinal fluid, they call it and things start happening.  And kindly concentrate.

I am going to go tonight myself and get rid of this cold of mine just by a simple formula of having little parsley, blended and juiced, about an ounce with a lemon, drink it.

Look down the tip of the nose.  Just think from the nose like water drops you are dripping something and you are seeing it falling into the blue cup down there.  It’s very easy, if you cannot do it, try it.  If whatever your body does, it shall have effect.  Just be elegant, there is nothing more noble than your own physical control on your own body ….

SIDE    B

….misunderstand me that your body is under your perfect control, that’s not true.  This is a misunderstanding we all have.   Our body and our nervous system is called stamina.  Sometime our stamina, physical stamina, mental caliber, and our spirit do not catch up to meet our demand.  Try to understand.  So this is just to develop and invoke in you that energy, you will start opening up your Chakras without your any hassle.  And your frontal lobe will start (?) heavy like a lead, you will feel like an headache, but that’s not a real thing.  It mean, it is happening.  And just feel there is a halo of light God with you, like Ang Sang Wahe Guru, that’s what actually Ang Sang Wahe Guru means, the sound, it’s a sound, it is not, it is a halo sound.

Today is a very day of festivity.  You will feel every Jewish family walking around with Yamka and well dressed up and going through the synagogue.  It is a new year.  So in every religion you find certain time where you can tune yourself to a point you can go for something you feel is real.  You will find in every religion, but in yoga, it’s every time.  You don’t have to wait.

Right now you are tuning yourself and exercise yourself control, physical, mental and spiritual.  Sit like a yogi, be like a yogi, act like a yogi and there will be a pain and there will be a painful pleasure, both.  Rise above it.  Your nerves will start kicking in and itching and either your lower back will start hurting or your neck will start going berserk.  Either of the two things will happen in this exercise because all the five tattvas, elements are now exchanging energy very heavily.  I wish you should see the way I am seeing it.

Put that tape, “Meditate…..”  meditation, yeah.  It is now five minutes to nine and you are being timed now.  And please do your best to concentrate and whatever pain is happening, welcome it.  Whichever nerve is bothering, welcome it.  It is not bothering you, it is straightening itself, it is straightening it’s meridian, it’s straightening the flow of energy.  It means that meridian is blocked.  Either go to acupuncture, get a needle in or just do it yourself.

(The tape, “Meditation… is played).

YB (talks over tape):  Fix the eyes.  Optical nerve must be controlling the brain…..  There are two nerves which are very strong.  The taste and the sight.   Optical nerve and taste nerve.  Faster.  Third comes the skin, the touch.  Now become yogi for five minutes.  I am not expecting any miracle, I am expecting right you creating a miracle.  For yourself.  There is no philosophy in this.  Left energy and right energy, ida and pingala will exchange itself at a very high velocity.  If the optical nerve is totally controlled the action will be hummungus……  Four more minutes.  Become like a solid statue of Buddha.  Be your best, nothing less…..  Meditation is a answer to life, problems, hurdles, weaknesses, it makes you cross all pain, displeasure, weakness.  It’s your pathway between man and God.  Woman included……  You have one and a quarter minute to go.  Concentrate…..  Inhale deep.

(The tape ends).

YB:  Deep, deep, deep, hold it tight and stretch your spine vertebra by your physical actions from lower tail up to the neck.  Consciously one, one, one, one…. All the way up to the twenty six of them and then let it go.  Inhale again deep, hold tight and please squeeze all the muscular system of your body by the spine, just consciously, slowly, gradually all the weight to the up to the neck, chin in and then let it go.  Once again inhale and do the same.  One, two, three, four, …….  nineteen, twenty, one, two, three, four, five six, let it go.  Inhale deep again.  One two, three four,….  nineteen twenty, one, two, three, four, five six, let it go.  Please relax.  And shake your hand and body as wildly and fanatically and insanely you can.  That’s the beauty of it, if you, if you will not do that, energy will not spread into all facets.  Just go, go, go, go, just like craziest thing you can do is, and the wisest thing.  Just you act crazy.

Move, move, move your body, just like wild as it should be.  Whatever you can imagine, a wild action you can just by sitting do it, just do it.  Hurry up, hurry up.  You have legs also, they need energy too.  They have to carry you, the body, neck, (?) go just into, it’s called causing a self-creative convulsion on the body.  All right, now sit down nicely.  Feel good?  You are okay?

Run, run, run, nine o’clock, hurry up.  It’s okay, it’s, it’s nice.  Aa, this is what you can do with me, whenever you get a chance you can live.  With me, you can only do one thing.  With me you can learn to live.  I am not interested in your imaginations and in your wealth, and in your poverty and in your richness and whatever you go through.  But, I can take your wheel of the wagon out of the mud.  That I can do.  And that is what is called Kundalini yoga.  It immediately takes a person from mental stalemate to mental activity.  Increases the caliber.  There is no beauty of this yoga, I would never have tried it if I don’t understand three things about it.  One is, saves time, number two, it is spontaneous, number three, it deeply affects on all calibers of the human, all facets.  That’s all.

And the wonderful thing in this is, we don’t initiate anybody, we don’t lay philosophy, nothing doing.  Get a person in the mold, cook him, stretch him, wash him, clean him, kick him out, let him face his day.  That’s how it works.  It’s not a (?) you come and do for me and I’ll do for you.  There is no such thing, there is no little (?), most of the people don’t like it.  Then they want long emotional rap and satisfaction, that kind of relationship.  In this, it can’t be.  We don’t initiate anybody.  Because if you are so stupid you can’t initiate yourself, why the hell we go to the trouble?

So it is not, it’s a, it’s a respect of your understanding of your learning of your grace, it’s not a respect by bound, by tying knots and tying those trips and going through all those ceremonies, no ceremony.  There is only one ceremony that you (?) get better ten times than your teacher.  That’s your ceremony.  Prove it.  That is the only ceremony which is acceptable in this whole science.  Become, become, healthier, happier and holier.  And as everybody has nine holes is a holy, simply you should know what goes in and goes out.  And that is called conscious control.

And now, a very simple exercise.  Move your toes and move your fingers fast together for few minutes, so whatever you have achieved is balanced.  That’s all.  It will be a minute and a half when we finish this we will be free.  Come on, come on, quick, fast.  And see the toes are moving both sides.  Because toes and fingers are the extremities.  So, the movement little bit in them, does complete thing.  All right.  Now, fold your hands and sing.

(The class sings “May the long time………”)

Meditation: LA135-19791029 Resolve Inner Conflict

Yogi Bhajan October 29, 1979, Los Angeles, CA

Sit in easy pose with a straight spine.

Press the hands on the breasts, palms in, fingers pointing toward each other. The hands are relaxed with the fingers extend and joined. This a comfortable position with very little pressure and no tension in the arms and hands.

Close the eyes nine-tenths of the way.

Deeply inhale for five seconds. Completely exhale for five seconds, and hold the breath out for 15 seconds.

Begin with 11 minutes and slowly build to 31 minutes. Comments:

This is a very simple and ancient meditation to resolve conflict in us. If you do it, you’ll enjoy it. Just see what changes you go through; just supervise yourself. It is a psychotherapy. The moment the body knows the breath is out it starts adjusting at the highest rate of efficiency. Work the automatics of your body. If you are really honest with your breath you are really honest.

The theory is that when the breath is out, and the prana is not there the pranic body starts penetrating through the other bodies to create the combination. Let the computer figure out how to make you survive with your cells which need x amount of oxygen. You may have a most grave situation to handle and five minutes of this will take care of it.

There is no mantra for this meditation.

Maha Mrityunjai Mantra

Lecture
Share the Best with Others
Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D. – June 4th, 2001 – Espanola, NM, USA

As we enter the Aquarian Age, some people are hanging on, some are barely walking and others are dragging their heels. Those who are imaginative and
wonderful are in misery when their ego is not satisfied. Others, whose defects could be overcome by doing sadhana, believe they have a sadhana but do not do it. On one hand they live positively and on the other hand they live with their defects.

This pain in life is self-perpetuating and limitless. You are corrupted before reaching the age of 27. People seeking a mate or a relationship feel they have a right to sex it out. This “sexing it out” can never leave your being. It is not just prostituting the body. To pimp your feelings or your mind is worse than prostitution. How can you forget the deeply embedded memories of entanglement between a man and a woman, or subconsciously wipe them out?  Where do you get the power? Somebody said to me, “I have the habit of being free!” It means having no commitment, no character, no dignity, no divinity, no grace. Free from what?

It is a joy to have children—but without virtues, without values, without training? How many parents share manners for their children to practice? How manny live in a dream world because it is more convenient and pleasant than reality?  How many times do you want to break down the banks of the river and flood the entire population, and think you will have friends? How many times have you insulted people with your bad manners and crude language? How many months has it taken you in your life to find out that you have anger and must get rid of it? How long wiill it be until
you realize you are not the end of the world, you are not the final word and you are not God, but just a human being?  Shine as a light, with a smile, with love and affection, and with compassion. Where there is no love, there is fear.  You have never bothered to discipline yourselves, to do sadhana, and do it like Aradhana to reach Prabhupati. You can be told and told, but will you listen for your sake? There is a new posture, the “Hang In” posture. Hang in and blame  your parents and neighbors. When you blame and blame, you cannot claim anything in life. Without the discipline and
the cleansing effects of sadhana, you do not rise above your body and being. Take time to sit and plan, to feel confident and comfortable. In a life of self-competency, where we leave off comparing and competing, we are respected. Be grateful for what you have. When you are great, you are fulfilled. Have patience and take care of yourself: “T have put three things in this plate: Sat, truth; Santokh, patience; and Vicharo, self-analysis. To this | have added God’s Name, which is like nectar. That is the greatest satisfaction.” — Guru Arjan, Rehiras Sahib

If you have character and commitment, if you remember that God alone has made you, that you are the identity of God, and if you remember “Ang Sang Wah-hay Guroo,” that God is within your every limb, you will be free of
frustrations, anger and game playing.

I asked someone, “You left in the middle of class. What happened?” “T felt that you were talking about me and it made me angry, so | thought I should go.” “Did leaving the class make that something in you leave?” “No. That’s why I came today, to ask you what to do.” “Let the past go. Change your behavior. Smile at everybody, say hello with love and affection, shake hands. The shortest route? Do not satisfy your ego, God will satisfy your soul.”

You like to think you have the right to break the discipline and be obnoxious, but you do not want the consequences.  Just because we have a voice, does not mean that we should yell and scream at people. Show them the way, guide them, hold their hand. Keep the good for yourself} keep the better for tomorrow, and share the best with others.

Lecture
Now we will talk something, very simple and straight and if it doesn’t suit you, it is okay. You was standing, right and you sit down, who sat down?

Student: (….)

(Student’s laughter)

YB: You have become very clever now.

(Student’s laughter)

If you remember, that you stood and you sat, it was not you, you are the most divine person, but you are only remembering it now, you are not going to remember all the time.

(Student’s laughter)

Corruption is in our genes. Though the genetic corruption is, without breath of life is useless, it means death, but still, with our genetic corruption, we think, we are living, that is not true. Breath is living in us, this is a structure, body is a?

Students: Structure.

YB: In which the breath of life lives. Why it lives? Because it has a karama, it has come here at a longitude and latitude, it has collected two parents to do it, it is born, the environments are useful and it goes. Whatever you are getting normally, is already predestined, because your birth is predestined, your parents are predestined, your relatives are predestined, your environment are predestined. Therefore, what you earn here of goodwill, compassion, grace, kindness, lalalala, indiscipline.

In?

Student: Discipline.

YB: If you are a Moslem and you call everybody else non–Moslem, infidel, that is not dharma, that is not religion. If you are a Christian and you call anybody else who is not Christian. No, no, it is not dharma. If you are a Jew and you say, I am the chosen one and everybody else is nothing, it is not dharma. Whenever you reach a saturated point. Whenever?

Students: You reach a saturated point.

YB: You are a dead idiot, not only dead idiot, because your flexibility is gone. Physical flexibility is gone, you are very sick, but when the mental flexibility is gone, you are very, very sick. It doesn’t give you anything. There is nothing, no sin you can commit and there is no nice, graceful, thing you can do, only question is how flexible you are. Ultimately, today, tomorrow, or day after, this body will become stiff, there is no way out. It will consume itself, because the breath of life will not be consumed that’s why Pranayam is way of life. We are not asking that everybody should do yoga, oh it is Eastern thing, it is Western thing. What is Eastern and Western thing? My East is New York, my West is Hawaii, what is East and West? We have made phrases to demarcate ourself and separate ourself from life. This is Chinese, this is Japanese, this is American, this is Canadian, we have marked and divided the world by boundaries and divided the people by signs and symptoms, by language. It is amazing, our life is amazing, we live on one Earth and one Universe and we are not universal. We are not. And the worst thing, which has happened to us is our spirituality. Spirituality has become power, now they are fighting in United States whether there are six million Muslims, or million and a half. They are fighting, if you really want to ask me, I don’t think there are more than two, three Muslims, real ones.

(Student’s laughter)

Whenever I used to go to New York, I used to see Christians, you know there is a big graveyard in New York? Miles long way, with lot of crosses and Jesus and all that stuff, that is the only Christian population, New York has.

(Student’s laughter)

It is permanent, it is there, it is forever. Not to understand compassion, is not to understand God. God is a impulse of expansion and man is a compassionately, understandingly, expanding, how much, you don’t understand, you contract. Then what is the use of life? Will you know each other? No, your whole life, you work hard, you can never know each other, that’s the first law to remember. The only thing you will remember when you are compassionate and so vast like ocean, that everybody else is like a little boat on it. Everybody is a part of you. If you do not understand that everybody is a part of you, then you do not understand who are you. You know on every corner of the road, there is a synagogue, there is a temple, there is a church, there is swamis and yogis and God knows,…. lot of people, lot of teaching, libraries are full, organization are so many, it is unbelievable. But nobody is there to tell you, you are a idiot. They don’t, they don’t want to. Because the problem is, not that they don’t want to say you are a idiot, if they say you are a idiot then you will say okay, make me non idiot, that is where they get stuck. In the name of Christ, from the pulpit, there are so many lectures you won’t believe it, but He went for a fast, do they go? Have they practiced anything which His life has left in living? Anything? No. It is not possible. We have come to go. Have we prepared ourself for going, we are always ready for coming. Coming is important, going is not, go, we must, know we must and the most important thing is show we must, that we are ready to go, if you understand that you will never fight with anybody. You will never hate anybody, you will not squeeze, it is very difficult for you then to separate yourself from the universe at total large, you must.

I have seen in my life, people who are very, very fanatically, religious and then all of a sudden, they break and there is nothing. Because, when they were religious, they were very, very, squeezed into themself, they were not vast. Religion is a reality, which is very vast. You identity yourself with religion that doesn’t mean you are special. That means you are general, that means you will hug those who do not deserve to be hugged. You misunderstand the meaning of religion. Religion is your own reality, deep in you, there is a reality. You may see things, happening around you, which you don’t like, you can politely protest. When I came to United States, I had a great chance to meet with many great people and I used to laugh, I say, you are already great, what do you want out of me? But they had different greatness, they have greatness of wealth, there are greatness of beauty, they were power, they were this, they were everything, but themselves. And I understood, leaving Hollywood and being worshipped by these people is useless, because they have a habit, they have a emptiness, they are hungry for spiritual growth, they don’t want to work for their spirit. They can’t.

I once asked one lady, I said, “Do you know how much wealth you have got?”

She said, “I can call my head accountant.”

I said, “You do not know how wealthy you are?”

She said, “No, I have never bothered, I don’t know how wealthy I am, all I know, I want to spend money and I get it.”

I said, “Do you know how many dresses you have got?”

She said, “Well, there is one switch, if you start, that you know that laundry roller?”

(Student’s laughter)

Around that whole house, there was ten feet wide laundry roller on which dresses were hanging, she has to put a computer number and press the button and that dress will come, so she can take it out.

I counted the lady has seventeen fur coats, different colors.

“Did you ever wear them?”

“Sometimes.”

She said, “Why you are asking me these questions?”

I said, “You sit down, you will fall, when I explain to you.”

She said, “I’ll like to know why you are asking these questions?”

I said, “You even do not know who you are, that is a separate question, you do not know how much you have. If you do not know how much you have on this Earth, hereafter what you have, you do not know at all, is there something for over there? You got to go, do you have something?”

She said, “Where I am going, I am not going anywhere.”

I said, “You are going, one day, you will go.”

“Okay, explain to me, okay I’ll agree, if you explain to me.”

I said, “How many poor people you have fed? How many poor people you have clothed? How many birds you have fed, forget about human? How many birds you have fed? How many trees you have planted? How many times, you have fasted?”

She said, “Is it necessary to fast?”

I said, “Yes, to give body a break, you should fast, once a while, not eat.”

(Student’s laughter)

“Oh that is fasting?”

I said, “Yes.”

(Student’s laughter)

I mean, she didn’t know the meaning, what is fasting is. Is that a life?

“Why we should fast?”

I said, “That gives us stamina, that gives us control on our hunger. That’s why we fast.”

Self control is the way of life, a sharing your own life with your self is the way of life. Closing your eyes and meditating is self-control, trying to calm down yourself. You can fight with your mind better than otherwise. These are simple things, people don’t understand them.

There was a very beautiful psychiatrist, he was my student when I used to teach in UCLA, he was all the time upset. He was upset with his car, he was upset with his home, he was upset with his wife, he was upset with the children.

I asked him, he says, “It’s my habit.”

“You are reaching end of your life, your blood pressure is high, you sometime even lose your consciousness and still you are upset?”

He said, “I don’t know how to stop it.”

I said, “Well, lie down on a place, for ten, fifteen minutes and close your eyes and breathe long and deep.”

He got totally cured, totally and he told me, “That was the easiest medicine, I ever had.”

I said, “It is always there.”

When you do not know what to do, just take long, deep, breath, because your life is based on the breath. Shorter the breath, worse you are, long is the breath, best you are. Recently, there is a problem, there is a girl who is in love and things are not happening right, you know what I mean? Love does that, lot of passion, lot of feeling, lot of this, lot of thinking and these are the signs of lovers, no eating…

(Student’s laughter)

Just negative to everything and this philosophizing everything and they talk very high and they do not where ground is, oh, my eyes,…oh I see him, I see him, I see him.

(Student’s laughter)

So it goes on like that. So one day, she called and she said, “I am in too much pain, things are not happening right.”

I said, “Count your breath per minute.”

Thirty-five, thirty-five breath per minute. Normal is fifteen and well-balanced person breathes ten times a minute. And if you are really a practitioner and you want to be prosperous, then you have to breath within seven and nine, less than that, you are a yogi. If you want things to be done for you and you don’t have to do anything, then you must breathe from one to five, six breaths, per minute. If you can practice that, then you can attract the universe for you, it is no secret, it’s a simple thing. Longer and deeper breath is, your psyche attracts everything for you, that’s a way to prosperity. There are some people who are failure, everything fail, this thing no, this thing can’t. Give them ten breath a minute, meet them after two, three years, they will be so prosperous and so beautiful, because sense of communication changes. There is a fear in your voice, if you can eliminate that, you can be surely prosperous. If you are wealthy you will enjoy wealth. Because the living psyche is part of you and that decides everything. I know a person, he is a counselor, you know what he does? He put a person in a chair and tell him do, burrrrrrrrrrrr, after half an hour, person get tired of that, but the person is so relaxed. When you hate somebody, you do this, brrrrrrrrrrruuuuu, don’t you do that, he makes people do this. Nothing else and they get so relaxed, so tired, sometime they burrrrr.

(Student’s laughter)

Their lives have changed, I asked him, “But you are supposed to counsel them?”

He said, “Counsel with what?”

They are buuuurrr their whole life, so I made them to do openly and clearly, so that they may get tired of it, moment it will get tired, they sleep and when they get up, they are very new people and slowly and gradually, they are building their self. Constantly, you are fighting, you are sitting, you are fighting, you are eating, you are fighting, you are fighting, with everything. And you think by yelling and screaming and raising your voice and attacking something you are going to get something, no, you should never alert the psyche of another person, doesn’t matter what. Never, ever, challenge the psyche of another person, it is the frequency of the another person more than two point, God is going to get you forever there is no need. If God has made you to be, then to be, to be, you want to know something? Practice it, if somebody is very rude and crude with you, just laugh.

(Student’s laughter)

You look so, just make it up, just see, how miserable the other person feels, how much do they enjoy it. Because that anger, that projection, that rejection, that self, will all come out in one big blast. And you laugh little more they say, shut up what you are doing you are mocking at me, bah-bah-bah, then the dog will come in, bouboubou…

(Student’s laughter)

We are human or dogs? Our intelligence, our sophistication, is the key to our living. You know this Clinton’s wife, what is her name?

Student: Hillary.

YB: Hillary went on South America’s tour right and she found out that they all have one type of hair style and when she went to Argentina or some place, they dressed her like, you know, South American woman, she felt, that day very comfortable.

Somebody asked her a question, “What was it?”

She said, “I felt very together. Your dress, your everything, affects you.”

She didn’t have long hair, but they put pins and everything and made her look like, their biggest sport is horse-riding. What we do, when we fight with our husband, we take the car, go fifty miles. Northern America has different life style, Southern America has different lifestyle, they are still with the Earth more than anything else. You see their homes, they have all big walls, outside and inside there is a garden. In Mexico, I went to somebody’s house, watch this, we went from one wall, there was servant quarters, then we went to another wall, there was a garden, then we went to third wall, there was a private garden, then were a house and there was inside the whole garden, what a living. We have apartments here, we must understand, our life is for expansion and it will expand. Up to death, it will keep on expanding whether we use it or not. If we use our life it will expand beautifully, it will benefit us beautifully, it will make us comfortable beautifully, but you can’t stop expansion, you were born like this, and you keep on growing.

Old age without wisdom, youth without success and childhood without smile, is worthless. Children must smile, youth must succeed and old age must be wise. These are the criteria’s to which a man has to grow, religiously. Self-expansion cannot stop, it keep on growing and without meditation, mind cannot be used, it becomes crooked. It has no boundaries then. And who is your first enemy and first friend? Your own mind. Your mind work in your sleep, it work in your awaking, it works all the time. And when you don’t meditate, it has no direction. It is a car, which can hit any pole. You use certain words, which I’ll like to remind you, don’t disturb me, now who the hell are you, disturb, you are already disturbed, don’t disturb me.

(Student’s laughter)

Somebody wants to talk to you, don’t disturb me, I am not in a good mood, I am just telling you, your idiot-ness, I am not in a good mood, how rude it is, that you are not in good mood. You are a human being. If somebody comes to talk to you, how worst it is you are supposed to see and meet head on and receive, learn, to receive the psyche of another human being, don’t see the body. See the projection of energy. If you cannot see God in all, you cannot see God at all. You can only see God in all, if you know, you have a God. God meets the God, devil doesn’t meet the God.

Let us meditate. Please put your index fingers like this, at the center of you, inhale deep, exhale deep, you must inhale deep and exhale deep that you can hear your own breath, forget about the neighborhood. Every breath should be volunteer breath, mechanical breath and you must hear the sound of your breath. Index fingers must be joined together and must be totally pressed with all the energy you have. Just on your breath. Lunch will be served, that’s good.

November twenty–four, you have a Tantric yoga, wow. You must understand that few minutes of just controlling your breath and meditating on it can give you more than you can expect in life. You can’t buy it, you have to do it. Hear your own breath. Put that tape in low tone, ‘Hari Narayana Sat Nam.’

Tape is played in the class….

(Over the tape) Within one complete sound you must breath once long and deep let it go. Concentrate on breath. By now it should start changing your metabolism. Moment you start attracting your metabolism, then you will start feeling light. After feeling light you will fee that you are knowledgeable and your sense of security will start improving. You will learn that you are beautiful if you don’t speak. And if you speak you must speak wise and for that you need the courage, self-confidence, sweetness. In the beginning there was a word, word was with God and word was God. Therefore every word you speak, it affects each one of us. You should breathe, not your body. Meditate deeply on your breath and exercise your self-control. It is very fortunate categorically to get together to do some spiritual practices and that give you multiple growth.

(Over the tape) Restart the breath of fire, now from the navel, honestly, if you can do the Breath of Fire, you will never misunderstand, life is beautiful. From the navel.

Breath of Fire will burn out everything, which can be a future disease to your lungs, it is so powerful. Any disease and many diseases are there which have to come, move the navel, you will not have any disease of the belly. It is not harmful, it is very useful. It is super, oxygenates your blood. Move your body, move the ribcage, where your soul is captured in. Move it little bit. It is called last run. Now in this breath of life, breath of fire, you have to use force. You have to use your alertness, you have to use your concentration. You have to make this day worth. People still who practice Sat Kriya are not sick. After thirty years, there is a gentleman who does it for thirty one minutes everyday, lives in a concrete jungle, there are lot of work, he is happy and together, no problem. You have a minute and half left, try your best. Try, try, watch is moving. Come on, put pressure on your navel point, help it out. Arey, this is your private matter, absolutely, inclusively, yours. Inhale deep, deep, deep, deep, hold. Exhale. Inhale again, deep, deep, deep, deep, relax.

End of the tape.

You did well. This is first time, I think, everybody tried to breathe Breath of Fire and mostly I think you have forgotten. I wonder, you do not know the beauties of those Kriyas, which you have been given in the last thirty-three years, they are great. I worked at the cost of my health, because don’t forget that for twenty-five years, I never sat and there was no regular life but running from one place to another and one congregation to another. We built up a knowledgeable community. I have failed, I have not built up a practicing community, I tried, I try my best. But what you know is more than what you know, simply, you have to digest it now. It is not a matter of the idea to put you on Saturday here, that I’ll be leaving soon still I want Saturday you should come and gather together and practice, pure for yourself. If you do not spread this knowledge and do not serve people, you will be guilty, it is not a matter of people, it is not a matter of being recognized, the benefit of it will recognize. These days, yoga is very popular, it’s a trend, it is just, they have done everything, they have taken Prozac and they have taken everything, it didn’t work. They have counsels, psychologies, psychiatry, what is not that is not available, but what is there is which is not for self and if the self start working, it will take care of things. There is nothing more important than yourself. There is no God but you, you have to change the frequency of your psyche and change the degree of your expansion consciousness and you have to understand the behavior of compassion. Arey, what you want that hundred times can come. Don’t live beggar’s life, I want this, I want this, I want this, it doesn’t work. I can tell you of my experience.

I have been a dirt poor, twice in my life and each time I was very rich to start with. Then I enjoyed. You won’t believe me, in Toronto, when I found there is a vegetarian pizza, there was no more joy than I can explain to you in words, I could eat, I go to any restaurant and I say, I want a soup, they say, Oh no, sir, there is a chicken in it. What they call, chicken something?

Student: (….)

YB: Yeah, and I say, can you just make it for me without it?

They say, “No, our formula, we don’t know anything else.”

Don’t be temperamentally poor and live like a beggar, give me this, give me this, God give me this…

God will give you, what He has to give you, His computer never fails.

I came here with thirty-five dollars and I have left you with millions and millions of dollars, but I have left it to you. I never brought anything and I am not going to take anything. But now you know to act responsibly. You have to act consciously. That is, multiply, not making babies multiply. That is multiply. Work, be more successful in businesses, make more money and help more people. Give them a space of peace and tranquility and grace. Let people trust you. That can only happen, if you trust yourself. There is no worth, if you don’t have your own worth on this Earth. You know, the power in you is a thought, just feel fulfilled. All the time, God give me this, God give me that…

God says, what is wrong with this guy? Ah? God gives you everything, question is, God doesn’t have your ways, God is Infinity and vastness, you are limited and small. It doesn’t work.

What different it makes if you are poor and what different it makes you are rich, if you are not tried to help somebody? If you do not develop the habit of a forklift, you are worst than any tool on this planet. Go like a fork-lift, lift somebody up, anybody. No obligation. Put somebody on the trail, let somebody move, let things move. Feel happy about it, that is a happiness, you will be rewarded for it.

I saw that day on television, one of the biggest thing, I cried and laughed. A Afghani child was saying every time the plane comes, sometime they drop food, sometime they drop pamphlet and sometime they brought bombs, we are very confused. We are not confused, we know, we have to feed two and half million people. We know that we have to educate them that fanaticism doesn’t work. We have to tell them, that pain begets pain. This is a very strange war, which you are fighting. It is not a war between countries, it’s a war between the haves and have-nots.

I told you, in 1972, there will be a war between haves and have-nots. And this is the war. It is not the World Trade Center you have lost, you were told that your happiness is not tolerable. You cannot enjoy prosperity. There is a network in this world, which is working fanatically, on this issue. You have to live alert, that freedom, we used to enjoy is gone. But still you have to live, you need sobriety, you need self control now, you need consciousness and you need to live in that peace and tranquility within yourself. Every sometime there will be a one mile long line and you need to stand. Your need for that patience. Well now you all…..

Here comes the dinner and lunch together, I think.

(Student’s laughter)

It is all mixed up.

The class sings: May the long tine sunshine upon you….

The class chants: Saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat Naam.

Blessed are those who bless themself, gracious are those who understand their own grace, kind are those who are kind to themselves and their being and their surrounding and virtuous are those who feel the entire universe belongs to them and they belong to the universe by itself. May your Creator God, guide you to these aspects of life so that you can live in peace and grace.

Sat Nam.

Lecture:

I caught you letting you see me. I have, is it okay. I have no choice but to speak in my high voice or I shall never be in a position to speak forever so, choice is not with me anymore. This thing is not improving, but they say in six weeks, voice will come back to normal, so I have publicly decided, no more cheating.

(Students laughs)

There is a problem, what I know nobody knows, so actually the idea was in my last mile of life I should leave the knowledge, for record, you may enjoy it or not or you are going to do it or not, that’s not my problem. You know, I go out through everyday through lot of hassles, dealing with people is very difficult problem, people have their phenomena’s, their facets, their projections, their insecurities, lot of fears, that’s the way this whole world is, angry, upset, because third Chakra is not balanced, third Chakra is in life, yes or no, high and low is balanced at third Chakra, is a point of pure energy, if you do not know to balance third Chakra, you may have all the degrees, all the knowledge, all the money, all the beauty, you shall guaranteedly be unhappy, because it is not what you feel, it is not what you know, it is not what you can do, it is how you can balance it.

When you cannot balance, you cannot live, think of a car which drives out of balance, and watch out how long there shall not be accident, our life is full of accidents and incidents. Majority of the accident we don’t want, but they do happen, when things happen beyond us, it is when we have not balanced them. Now you think, I can balance, right, not true, this is how the human brain works, as you hear you should balance it, as you say you should balance it, you can’t do this later on. So the body and the capacity of the body has to balance it, maybe I am teaching this very secret science, God doesn’t want it, He said, “All right, shut him up, that’s the only reason I can pick it out,” but we are actually telling you the secrets which we won’t read in books.

The inner bone has three bones, the inner ear, there are two bones and, one hammer on both sides, what I say you don’t hear it, it is that not, not, not, which brain picks up and translates it in the center of understanding. Center of understanding, in our body, nervously is controlled by the navel point. So your eyes, ears, and tongue, throat, is controlled by navel point, whatever you hear, whatever you see, and whatever you say, is controlled by this navel point. If navel point is little up, diarrhea, if it is little down constipation, if it is on the left side, gas, if it is right side (?) and all it has do is one millimeter, one millimeter. If the navel point is one millimeter off your entire digestive system, your feelings, what should I say, you are not you, then you go the Doctor take the medicine, what medicine is that, which suppresses it, that symptom nerve system, calms it down, but it doesn’t go away, then it shows up, have you seen that sometime, sometime your this arm hurts, sometime this shoulder hurts, sometime this.

Eighty percent of headaches are because of the navel point, eighty percent, ninety percent you get tired because of the navel point, but still, this, there is no point, there is only, it used to be when you were a child all energy came through it, you didn’t have the breath of life. Something, which sustains you without breath of life, something which nurtures you to be a human without breath of life, is it dead? No, it’s alive, your entire nervous system is controlled by it, “What did you say?”

The other person say, “You heard me.”

“Yeah!, but I don’t understand,” navel imbalance, you hear but you don’t hear, what was that, you see you didn’t see, sometime have you talked to people, they say something, you say, “What? What are you saying?” There is no juice in it. In normal language we say, “Guts.”

We are going to work today and tomorrow on this Chakra. About the Geography of it, I will say in my language, you can read it in the book, doesn’t make much of it, it has that many petals, it has that many sounds, this is what it is? Then what? If you know something Geographically, but you do not know what it is and how to use it, you can’t use it, it doesn’t mean to say, so we are creating a relationship today, with it. The tape I am going to play with it, “Humee Hum Brahmhum” we are we and we are God’s, you understand, it’s very good beat, the words are very simple, but you will speak these words.

Watch me, “Humee Hum Brahmhum” “Humee Hum Brahmhum”, “Humee Hum Brahmhum.” you will speak, you will be worst than me, (?) because you don’t have practice, but maybe after thirty-one minutes, now, nobody is perfect on this, it took me about year and a half, I think, about eight, one year and about eight months, to do what I will do now. I think, when a child is born, as he walks or trained for potty, he should be trained to adjust third Chakra, it’s so important, but the tragedy of it is there is a tragedy. Tragedy is if you do not know how to balance and your third Chakra automatically do not balance you, you can’t do it later, game is over, that’s the tragedy of it.

Awaken the Kundalini, do the whole thing, that doesn’t mean anything in real words, I mean if I want to sell you something I will say, ‘awaken the Kundalini, ‘I am the Mahan Tantric, come to me, I will (?) give me fifty thousand dollars,’ that won’t work. Awaken Kundalini means, all hundred facets of pressure, are automatically balanced by you, then serious things are balanced, then you play around, you have no worry, you don’t care, you enjoy life, you concentrate, you are intuitive, you know it, it is not like a watch, you have to wind the third Chakra and the spring is full, and then you can enjoy it, this doesn’t work that way, it has to be invoked, initiated, and it has to be automatic, it’s a real work, what is the benefit? Benefit is, you can’t be beaten, once it is on. What is the tragedy? Tragedy is you will remain fully, it doesn’t know what you do.

In Psychology, we work on anger, childhood anger, this, that, guts, so many things, we try to make theories. In medical science we work on systems, you know physical, mental, some diseases are psychologically physical, some diseases are physically causing psychology problem. Now let us talk about religion. If you are religion, but doesn’t matter which religion you are, I don’t care you know, they all, all are brands, it doesn’t make sense to me, ever, from day one. But whatever your religion is, if it does not make you Infinite, that you can love, and you can be free, and you can be happy and you can be you, I don’t know which religion it is? Religion means, you become real. I am known as a religious man, I am or I am not, that’s not my problem, but take me anywhere, I won’t dress up like this, I will wear blue jean, you know, no, no, no, no, no, I am telling you and open chest shirt.

(Students laugh)

No, no, I did it once, I am telling you, and I will wear some funny shoes, take me there, in one minute they will realize I am religious man, one minute, it won’t take more than sixty seconds. It is not that I am religious man, not at all, my very presence is religious, you talk to me anything, playboy, this boy, that boy, you will find me always turning you around, to letting you understand, there is a higher self, it’s not that I don’t joke, it’s not that I am cut throat humorist, I make jokes on everything, with few people with whom I am very free, or where I feel I am educating, not that I am prisoner of war because somebody ego is projecting and I have to defend myself, because people who come to me are just like glass, little rub, crack. So you have to be very compassionate and keep them in a very kind situation.

First of all, when a person enters I know from the aura, whether person is coming or a fraud is coming or a, deer is coming or elephant is coming, you know I don’t have a problem with that. Rarely who human walks in to me, you know, so you understand I am handicapped, put yourself in my position, you will commit suicide, really I have to tell an idiot, how happy I am to see him, how beautiful I am to see him, how marvelous it is, what I am trying to actually do it, to bring balance in his third center so, his arc line maybe human, before I can talk, you don’t understand my tragedy, I am a born blind man, all I see is arc line aura and bah, bah, bah, and what I see, I compute at a spontaneous time, now tell me if you see somebody as Mr. A and you feel him as Mr. Z how you will deal with it. But I have a mission to accomplish, that’s a mission of delivery, sometime we discuss, sometime things with some people, there is a one student of mine, we have been discussing this it from last three years,

He said, “Sir, draw the line.”

I said, “Where? World is an ocean, you draw the line on water what that means?”

One day he was arguing for about two hours, very convincing, he read the books, he read the American history, he read even Indian books, he even quoted Guru Gobind Singh, ‘draw the line,’ I just, in the end said, “Do you believe in God?”

He said “Yes!”

“Do you know anything about God?”

He said, “Little bit.”

I said, “When He draw the line.”

He said, “I said, if God cannot draw the line,

‘Rukh Ruuaan Ki Rozi Na Taarey.’

This is, I said, “Guru Gobind Singh” God doesn’t get angry with anybody, God doesn’t take revenge from anybody, God doesn’t deny any, one who denies another person, has nothing to do with God. Denial is not God, but where is the courage in us to accept, that whole thing, here, at the third center, we can be totally unique, perfect, our presence can work, we can be beautiful without any setup and charm, if we have our third center working for us, they say it is dormant, I agree with it, it is dormant and we are dormant, you know what we do, we do something, you know for what, to live, to survive, we do nothing to enjoy life, tell me what you do? Anybody can tell me?

Is there anything you do to enjoy life, because none of you has a balanced observation, you cannot observe and think and then balance, you have to be there, well, wait a minute, you take honey, you get the taste spontaneously, you take red chilies, you take the taste (?), so is the life, you take the taste of life spontaneously, does it run in brain, no, does it run in hips, no, does it run by the skin and the sensors, no, balance is observed at the third center, brain only multi, magnifies it, do you understand.

Today and tomorrow, I will work on it, if we have to work little more than what we could spend another week, I want you to honestly understand, once in lifetime, what I am talking. I know, you do not know what I am talking. You touch here there is a little one point, it was once a place, it was okay, it never gets sick, no pimple on it, why should we bother about it, it doesn’t bother us, we should not bother it, that’s the attitude. Actually, without the activity of this point, everybody lives in a dungeon. Life means nothing, then we have a substitute, sensations, drama, trauma, problems, magnitude, mind, we play games, you know why we are slave to our mind, because our this third point doesn’t balance life, so then we start thinking, why?

Why, it’s as high as sky, there is no answer to that, why, it’s a run, it’s a blind run, everybody’s life is a blind run, I can say it, because I have experience of it. It is such a run that you can’t stop, is this run essential? No. Needed? No. What is it? It’s a waste of time. You want to do it the hard way or the soft way, come on, how you are ready? Hard way will be difficult, you are Americans you know, let us do slowly, right. Hard way is to make the Mool Bandh, root lock, and then do it, that’s very damn difficult, but it’s enjoyable, it’s very sensual, now you are ready, hah, hah, I know you.

(Students laugh)

I can persuade you, the way I want it, but actually let’s do it scientifically, slowly, see what it is? Balance your hand in such a way that every part of the hand, palm, fingers, meet exactly in balance, and put a pressure there, exactly as, as it to pressure the nerve at the navel point. Navel point and this pressure will play just like a heart beat, this pressure will be like this, like this, I am doing on the sides, so you can see me, you will keep it here, and both hand will press, when you press the navel and, and with the tip of the tongue, you will chant. You are going to do three things, your hand will press like a beat of the heart, by your will, your navel will be pulled in, by your will, with the press of the hands, and your tip of the tongue will talk, “Humee Hum” this is how you will all talk, “Humee Hum Brahm Hum” it will look weird, but don’t worry, in the long run you will open up, okay, understand? Make the spine straight please and balance your hand exactly in a way that you can feel every part of the hand, and then let’s do it, okay.

(Tape, “Humee Hum Brahm Hum” is played.

YB: (Over the tape) You will have a fun tonight.

Side B

(Tape, “Humee Hum Brahm Hum” is played.)

(Tape stops)

Inhale, inhale and now pull the navel and press the tip of the tongue and concentrate, let it go, now, again, inhale deep consciously, hold the breath, now pull the navel inward and the tip of the tongue, let it go, now if you have not done it twice right, do it this time, inhale deep, deep, now steady, pull the navel in, press the tongue tip tongue, hard, relax.

I did not let you go through it, it’s a part of your life, now, we did it, just assess yourself, don’t bother, you are not going to tell anybody anything, just feel. It is such a quick difference you can feel, you don’t have to convince anybody, that Infinity, that God, that Purity, that power, that pure power is in your navel point, you can’t buy it, you can’t sell it and I cannot give you, you cannot take it, but I will give a technological knowledge, through which you can initiate it, so it’ll start working for you, what that will mean ultimately, I am not saying that there will be no problems, I am not saying there will be no rush, I am not saying that there will not scandals, I am not saying anything, but you will be untouched.

You can sit like a lotus, in the muddy waters and enjoy life, that is the power of the third Chakra, it keeps you instant, Infinite, experience of your life, no time can measure it, no waste. There are lot of things in life, but there is nothing like this. Now, for five minutes we pray for peace, and there is a tape, right, and we will sing it with our heart, for five minutes. Now listen, if a American is dying, or if a Iraqi is dying, death is death, and war is war, you can contribute and participate in that war, giving your prayer for peace and who knows who’s prayer will work, all that guy has to get out of (?) and save his skin, that’s all it is, he doesn’t, he didn’t know, he, I believe it.

Why we want war? We want to test it out. I tell you why we went to war, I mean forget about American politics. We went to war, to test it out, whether our new billions of dollar war machine works or not, and poor guy invited us, that’s all it is.

(Students laugh)

Who is going to go and live in a rock, tell me, anybody of you? No, it is not true, but we have to test it out what we have, he offered the opportunity, they are never going to have ground war, are you kidding, what for? They can nail him right from the sky, why should they bother, everybody band together, you know why? British want to test their war machine, even the French, who I never understood, will ever join, they are testing their own aeroplanes or they are sending the message to Russia, your MiGs are no good, this is not a war, it’s a human tragedy, there is nothing in this war.

You know what will happen in real war, where we will conquer Iraq, liberate Kuwait, then we built up Iraq, then we will believe, without Iraq there is no balance in that area, first we will beat it, then will nurture it, first we destroy all the bridges then we will built it, this is, this is what we do with Japan, this we did with the Korea, this is what we did with Formosa, this is what, oh Germany we spend everything there. So, world has learnt, when they want to be rich and great, they pick up war with us.

(Students laugh)

Really, that’s the American way. First beat a heck out of them, then built them up. Japan is no bigger than the human pancreas, it’s just a little thing, he is giving us the money, can you believe that. Germany waged two world wars, now that is our ally, friend. We guard its borders, we do everything, we give him everything and they are having a fun, they are not worried, now they say, because of two world wars we are not joining it, period. When war will be over, we will send the engineers to built it up, which American way is. But you know, human tragedy is a human tragedy, let’s pray in our own way, you know as exactly we want to pray.

(Tape, “Ang Sang Wahe Guru…” is played)

(Tape stops)

Our prayer is, that with each atom of their life God is, that’s what we are projecting, where wherever they are, near or far, whatever the status is good or bad, God be with them, that is the prayer, the feeling of oneness. Just imagine you are there in that desert, first imagine that, that’s what the imagination is useful. Imagine being there, imagine being with these people and then feel and pray, that God be with them, the total of them, with all of them, thank you. “May the long time Sunshine upon you.”

Students sing: May the long time Sunshine upon you…

YB: God, Almighty bless us, bless all these people, give them comfort and peace, be with them in life and death, bring peace to the Earth, that’s our prayer, give us the strength to pray, give us the strength to be, give us the strength to elevate ourself, Sat Nam. We will meet tomorrow again, thank you.
