...Somebody once asked me what is in JapjiJapji , Japji Sahib The Song of the Soul written by the First Sikh Guru, Guru Naanak Dayv Jee. Saadhana opens with a recitation of Japji each morning at 3:40 am. A mantra, poem, and inspired religious scripture composed by Guru Nanak. Japji Sahib gives a view of the cosmos, the soul, the mind, the challenge of life, and the impact of our actions. Its 40 stanzas are a source of many mantras and can be used as a whole or in part to guide both your mind and your heart. ? There are so many scriptures, they tell you the story of thousands years what happened, give you the life of those who lived through that time, their achievements and their defeats. These people were not afraid of their defeats, if they ever get defeated by the karmaKarma The law of cause and effect applied to mental, moral, and physical actions. Ego attaches us to and identifies us with objects, feelings, and thoughts. These attachments create a bias toward certain lines of action. Instead of acting you begin reacting. Karmas are the conditions required in order to balance or complete these tendencies. Though necessary, karma is not dictatorial or fatalistic. It is the mechanism that allows the finite experience of existence to maintain and stabilize itself. We all have free will and can take actions to re-direct the momentum of a karma. We can transform it or neutralize it using meditation, jappa, good deeds, or intuition that remove your sense of ego and the identification with that past line of action. they understood the dedication of the karmaKarma The law of cause and effect applied to mental, moral, and physical actions.

It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. , there is no difference. Human body is supposed to live and action and reaction is the law of the body. So when there is the action and reaction, you want to act neutral, but most of the time you can't, so you go after what you like and don't go after what you don't like, but there is a tragedy of space, what you like when you were a child, you will not like when you were young. What you like when you were young you will not like when you are in middle age and when you like in the middle age certain things, you will absolutely hate them in the old age. There is no way out. The cycle is called kaal chakraChakra , Chaakra The word connotes a wheel in action. It usually refers to the seven primary energy centers in the aura that align along the spine from its base to the top of the skull.

In small little lines, you know, there is a stone in the ranchThe Ranch Yogi Bhajan's home just across the highway from the Aashram, and site of the Yogi Bhajan Memorial Birthday Celebration. , which is, I put my memory line on it, it says,

"Ketia dukh bukh sadh maar yeh be dat teree dataar"

And fortunate part for me is, I went through it, I have seen hunger, which I don't recommend for anybody. I have seen difficulties, I realize I am a yogiYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. , when I was walking in Toronto, in minus temperature, with a shirt and one pant and shirt was bush shirt, it doesn't have sleeves and I had news paper tied on my feet, cellulite on it tied with thread and I used to walk. It was the story of a man who didn't know, how many pair of shoes he has. So I realized I am being seasoned, I was lucky. My family has not to go through it nor see it, they should not understand it, they have to live their own plight, own lives, they have to reach their own destination, that is destiny, it would have been very shocking if they would have seen me in that state of physical existence. Well, life took a turn, I came to Los Angeles, here that bush shirt was hot, it was totally opposite.

But still, I was here, when I taught my first class in one YMCA, where they expected about four hundred people, you know how many turned up? Me, myself, my tape recorder and my driver. Because the Director put the wrong date and wrong day. I came to know of this because next day, he was over there, cause telling me, there are a lot of people called and they are all coming in, it's a mistake of YMCA and you got to come and speak, don't let us down bah-bah-bah.

I said, "Okay I'll come."

Lot of people wanted to be initiated, to tie a thread with them and tie a thread with me, I never tie a thread with anything, I told them if you are not in a position to initiate yourself and do not understand God within you, then you do not want to introduce yourself to yourself. And one who doesn't introduce one self to one self, doesn't matter what he does, God may come in the presence and bless that person. The gate to hell is as open as you can imagine. Because what God gave you, is self. And you do not introduce yourself to yourself. So how can we forgive them, if you do not know yourself then you will be territorial, you will be jealous, you will be angry, you will make plans and schemes, you will pull people's legs, you will like to show your power, etc., etc., etc. So it is very essential, that you must introduce to yourself.

So when my time was minus point two hundred thousand, with no love and affection, tons of hatred was rolled over me, threats were (?) and there was no chance, there was no corner, where to hide. There were lobbies, with billions of dollars, working totally and they know only one thing destroy this man. We spent so much money to India to make Christians, he has come here to take Christians. He must not live. Do you understand that?

And I said to myself, all right, tell me, what I said to myself? Guess?

Student: (....)

YB: Guess.

Student: (....)

YB: Ah?

Student: (....)

YB: Ketia...

Students: 'Ketia dukh bukh sadh maar eh be dat teree dataar'

YB: This is one way you will never fight with your wife.

(Student's laughter)

You will never fight with your husband, you will never fight with your children. Because you are accepted as a daat, it is His blessing to you and your character. This you are not going to learn sitting at the Lotus Feet of the master. Don't be mistaken, well, if you want to lose some money, that is all right. Because if you give money to the holy man, he has unlimited hole for it.

(Student's laughter)

He is going to distribute it, he is going to give it to one cause or the other. That is his nature. That is his habit. And law of vacuum is when you give, you create vacuum then you get it. Many times, because law of vacuum is there is no vacuum, understand dharmaDharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. in a very simple sense, don't put yourself into this complicated juggleries. You know, what I am saying?

Once somebody came to me and said, "Yogiji, Yogiji, Yogiji..."

I said, "What, what, what, I said, what is the matter?"

He said, "Yogiji, great, great."

I said, "Could you let me know what is great?"

He said, "This morning I was meditating."

I said, "Yeah?"

"I saw GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Guru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. ."

I said, "What he was doing?"

(Student's laughter)

"He came before me."

I said, "Then what? Did he say something?"

"Nothing, I just saw him."

And the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. of the Aquarian AgeAquarian Age The next in a succession of astrological ages each lasting roughly 2,000 years. Fully inaugurated in ad 2012, the Aquarian Age will witness a radical change in consciousness, human sensitivity, and technology. The central change of this new age emphasizes an increased sensitivity and evolution of our power of awareness and a new relationship to our mind. was there, lying down, I said, "Look at him, he is right on this paper printed permanently."

What is the difference between this Nanak and that Nanak? Nanak is Nanak you have not understood yet, Nanak is Nanak. Nanak is you, in you, around you, in your action, in your thought, in your imagination, in your projection. Nanak makes your karmaKarma The law of cause and effect applied to mental, moral, and physical actions. Ego attaches us to and identifies us with objects, feelings, and thoughts. These attachments create a bias toward certain lines of action. Instead of acting you begin reacting. Karmas are the conditions required in order to balance or complete these tendencies. Though necessary, karma is not dictatorial or fatalistic. It is the mechanism that allows the finite experience of existence to maintain and stabilize itself. We all have free will and can take actions to re-direct the momentum of a karma. We can transform it or neutralize it using meditation, jappa, good deeds, or intuition that remove your sense of ego and the identification with that past line of action. into dharmaDharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. .

"Where I should learn it?"

I said, "I don't know. Go to some flea market, see if something is available like that."

You won't believe it, he went to flea market.

(Student's laughter)

He bought a book, old nithnem, God knows how old it was.

He said, "I have bought this."

I said, "God is with you. Now read JapjiJapji , Japji Sahib The Song of the Soul written by the First Sikh Guru, Guru Naanak Dayv Jee.

He said, "Flea market."

(Student's laughter)

I said, "How you went to flea market?"

He said, "Sir, you told me, so I went to flea market and there is a shop for old books, I told him show me and I saw this, bought it."

There are many, many hidden, precious things, which are lying down to be bought by you. There are many, many hardships, which are standing by to save you. There are many, many treacheries and tortures and tragedies, which are waiting to get you so that you can have a character. You don't like this, hah? I understand.

You know the funny part was, when I used to go and teach in universities, these I won't name them but they are well known to you, they are fanatics, they will hire a person, go and abuse him. So when that person will reach in a very humble way, I always knew what is coming, so I'll politely say why don't you start early so you can finish fast? He will abuse as much as he could, student around sitting will not like to tolerate, they wanted to kill him.

I said, "No."

"He is simply verbalizing and cleaning us like a soap. He should not disturb us."

I'll sit calmly and that, that thing, came home, some of people in our sangat got so much to their head, they wanted to be Gods.

I simply told them, I have no objection, but I don't want to be a God. I want to be in one place, not everywhere. But here you will learn to be everywhere, for everybody, to do anything and everything and your humility is greater than all devotions of this world and you will sweet to serve, your real strength will be tested.

Blessed God, has blessed you, His hand is guiding you, calm down. Don't fight with personality, follow the reality.

I was told, there is a telephone arrangement and I can speak it from there, but something told me, no, they have come, you must go, let us meet, let water, merge with water and become one. There is no need to remain separate.
