... we were working yesterday on the special area of energizing (?) and we believe.... Let's make a statement very vague. You understand why? In America if you make a exact statement that sounds like truth. And people don't want to hear truth, so let us make truth little mellow. You understand what I mean? Mellow the truth. We by habit have the habit to live in so many beautiful lies, imaginations, that sometime when somebody said two and two makes four, we say "What? I was told two and two makes six." He is willing to bargain with you two and two makes five, not four. But folks two and two always will make four. If you will cater to neurosis you will end up as a neurotic. Now this is a truth.

What are the neurosis? Who adds to our neurosis? First is our parents. 'Don't touch my baby, don't say anything to my baby!' Oh Jesus Christ, you got a baby what else? 'My baby should eat fifteen times' (?) baby's stomach always gives the signal when to eat. Crazy women, baby is not a toy. Baby is a man in the future. When you feed the neurosis of the child it becomes its habit. First you make the habit, then habit makes you. Why we say do SadhanaSadhana , Saadhana A spiritual discipline; the early morning practice of yoga, meditation, and other spiritual exercises. The Aquarian Sadhana can be an individual or group practice; Ideally, it includes the recitation of Japji Sahib, a Kundalini Yoga kriya, and chanting the Aquarian Sadhana meditations, immediately followed by Gurdwara. According to Yogi Bhajan, the potency of any Kundalini Yoga and meditation practice will be enhanced in a group setting. ? Because we want you to develop a habit.

I fully understand, I fully understand one thing, in United States of America every American citizen has the right not to commit himself. I fully understand. But I also fully understand a uncommitted man is just a unhappy person for the rest of his life. Uncommitted person who eats when he likes he develops disease. Anything in life, any facet in life is nothing but a commitment, all you can do is you can be messy about it or you can be accurate about it.

If you are spiritual you are accurate about it. If you are messy then what you do is you are perfect. Suppose you are perfect, healthy, I am very healthy, I can mess around myself. One month, two months, three months, four month I'll fall apart. Healthy body is a harmonious living, accurate living, committed living, if you service the car properly, change the oil properly, change the water properly, check it out, tune it all right, normally the car will go all right. But if you only change the tire when it bursts out, change the oil when the whole thing blows up... what you are going to end up with? This is what you do? That's your pattern. Very funny thing, very funny thing, one guy called me a month ago, "Sir, I cannot sleep."

I said, "Don't sleep. That's very good thing, people oversleep you don't..."

He said, "No, no, I went to my doctor, he says it's a disease I can't sleep."

I said, "What he does?"

"He gives me tranquilizer."

I said, "What you are doing? You are taking the medicine, it's a good thing. When doctor prescribes the medicines he is next to God. Take tranquilizer, that's a very good thing. You know you have been taking all this downers and all that, few tranquilizers won't bother."

"But sir, tranquilizers don't work."

I said, "Wait a minute, ask the doctor to put you under anesthesia you know. You got to sleep."

He said, "That's what he told me. He told me Mr. So and So the only problem left now is to give you a injection or morphine to put you to sleep. You are not sleeping."

I told him, I said, "Go and get your blood culture and check it out what is short in you."

They found out the boy is too... guy doesn't have any calcium. Low running account, he started taking calcium now he doesn't get up, now his wife told me... is it all right if he sleeps eight hours? I said, "Seems so."

(Students laugh)

The problem in our character, in our spirituality, in our beauty and happiness and peace is there is one thing, which we miss all of us. And that is... we are not understanding who we are. I was explaining today and I'll like to explain it to you. Now look at the Jews it was a religion of a tribe, it started with a tribe. It was a tribe, that's why in Judaism if your mother is not a Jew, you are not a Jew, period. Your father maybe a Jew, but if your mother is not a Jew you are not Jew and you are acceptable in Jew if you go through the whole thing but basically you are a second degree Jew, second class, not first class. But if your mother is Jew, I mean this is a kabbalah, this is a kabbalah law, it's called kabbalah law. Don't misunderstand. In those days people were in tribe and their range was not more than two hundred and fifty miles. Can you believe walking four miles an hour how much a person can think of going?

Then became what they call is tribe of faith. First it was tribe of bloodstream, then second religion, which came was Christianity. It was a tribe of faith. Everybody who accepted Jesus Christ or the disciples and whatever the whole thing was, that became Christian. But they were afraid of everybody else. There were lot of things, there were lot of peers, 'don't do this!' Because there was a Roman Empire time, you can't even come out. They used to worship in caves. They were eaten by lion two thousand years ago, that's not a big deal. Then came Muslims. Look at their law. That was the law of a kabbalah, of a faith, of a place. They always look towards the west and worship. All. I told one guy, I said, "What you will do if you will be in London?"

He said, "I'll look to the west."

I said, "No, the Kaba is in the east. From London, Mecca is towards the east."

He said, "No, I'll go around the world to reach there. But I look to the west because I have been told that is the west."

I said, "No, look at the facts."

He said, "My teacher told me to look towards the west so my Kaba is always in the west, whether I am in Japan or I am in England."

You can't argue with a fanatic!

(Students laugh)

It's fine. Today everybody is falling apart. Reason? The rituals, which all the religion took over was of that time. Now the world is in the hand of everybody. It is in the living room. They show you a bus has fallen three hundred feet in Nepal, in Himalaya there is a little tiny kingdom, nobody even knows it existed ever before. Or in Japan they are showing President Jimmy Carter had a sneeze. Those kind of little things are right out front. First, 'this is what Yogiji says, right? This is what my teacher says. This is what my prophet says, this is what...' you know all that jazz... now it is not... it doesn't work. Now everybody wants to say what everybody wants to say. But you want to pick it up what you want to pick it up. What is happening now? We all understand we have to survive. We have all understood with all the money with welfare, with freedom, now everybody understands by cutting a new hairstyle you don't look beautiful. Everybody now knows. That's one example I always feel by dyeing your hair and by cutting them hair and giving them a style ultimately they become needles. Nothing works. Nothing works in anything. By drinking booze you can't forget your worries, you can sleep few hours.

"Aisa Kar Tu Pes O Banday, Aisa Kar Tu Pes, Bass Aavey Yeh Des O Banday Vass Aavey Des."

It is such a simple couplet. Oh my being, make yourself living such way that the interim self of the land, the territory should come to you rather you going to it. Every land has a climate, every climate has a situation. Every situation has a desirability. But you cannot affect yourself all laws are laws of the space and time. But truth must stand between logic and reason, space and time. And who can speak the truth? Who have the strength of the spirit. Who have the strength of spirit? Who knows himself. It is very difficult to speak truth. And it is very difficult to listen to the truth. It is the most difficult human intelligence test. Somebody said test a man. What is the test of a human intelligence? When you stand out. If somebody wants to know when he was born and why he was born and what made him to be born just stand for the election, be a politician. In one election they will dig out your everything.

When you stand out you must face the slander. That's the law. The example in the scripture is any dog, which has a collar around, the freelance dog they all get on him. When anybody stands committed he must be tested. Otherwise what is the commitment? Whenever you walk on a path of righteousness two things will happen to you. You will be tested through temptation and slander. Both work at the same time. They say leave, leave, leave, this, we will give you the whole world. The most graceful example is the examples of two Sons of 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 Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. Gobind SinghGuru Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. . One was seven year old, one was nine year old. Finally the Governor said, "You are too innocent and beautiful and I don't want to kill you. All you have to do is to bow before me and I'll let you go. Just bow. You don't want money, you don't want jewels, you don't want this... we are trying to give you everything. You say, no. Now something we have to do and that is if you just come and fold hands and bow we will let you go."

They said, "No, we will not bow before you."

Somebody advised, "These are brainwashed kids of a rebel, they are innocent. They do not know how to bow. I can give a scheme, and scheme is we will put them in a room, solitary room, and we will make a hole and we will tell them early in the morning you should come through the hole and in the front of that hole we will put your chair and make a court of you and naturally their head will come first, they will come crawling out of that place and they will bow before you and we will just let them go."

He said, "Yeah, yeah, yeah, that's the best thing you have thought of it. The kids are wrong. They don't know."

All right the scheme was executed, so they both guys early in the morning were told to come out of the room. When you guys commit something and give a word of honor and then make a mockery of it, I want to just give you a example and you think you are very intelligent, you use your intelligence to get out of the word. I am telling you righteous people, God honest people use the intelligence to honor the word. Those who honor the word of Nanak they are honored by God. You use intelligence to get out of the words, people of consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. use intelligence to get into the words. Now when those stoppers on those holes were removed and they were called to come out, and each one in their intelligence thought my God if I put my head down God knows what is happening. So they put their buttocks first.

(Students laugh)

And they came back feet wise. That's it. That freaked out the... 'they are not going to give in.' Finally they decided (?), now this was temptation, first they tempted them, 'we will give you this, we will give you that,' nothing worked out, then they wanted to compromise. These are the stages of every human consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. . I am teaching you the basic facts about consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. . Now this is the consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. . First, temptation. Greed. Always first they work on your greed. That's the easiest thing. Second comes negotiation. This was a negotiation, if you bow in your husband and wife relationship these things will happen. In your father and son relationship these things will happen.

Every relationship goes through these three tests. First is temptation, greed, second negotiation and third torture. Torture was brick them alive. So when each day the brick comes up and cement and brick and they know death is coming slowly, it is a slow way of telling somebody you agree or you are done! They laughed it out too. Now they have died as human beings, we agree. Seven year, nine year they died. They could have died with a malaria also. They could have got typhoid too. They could have got a snake bite, who knows? Death can come in million ways. But the way they choose to play with death, the way they played the death beyond concept of it, the way they showed their will of commitment, the way they showed their spirit of Infinity that makes me tonight talk about it. That makes you to listen tonight about it. And that is what human beauty is.

Human beauty is a concept of infinite will. Determined and executed by the finite being. There is no other thing, which I can tell you. In our strength, in our strength, you may belong to any religion folks, you are most welcome. You may belong to any country, any nationality, but when the mosquito will bite you will get malaria whether you are a British subject, American subject or you are a Japanese subject. Mosquito bite and if your body does not have strength to save you, shall get you malaria, period. You may belong to Tibet and you maybe a lama of Tibet or you maybe a sweeper in India or you be a Lord or a knight in British Empire or you maybe a President of United States of America, when the cobra will bite you, you will not live more than three minutes. As simple as that. Hand of death shall come. And when hand of death will be around your neck, nothing can save you. But one thing can save you, you can save your honor to train yourself before that hand touches you, to live free, honest and committed.

Your body is the Temple of God. Until you do not know the technology to command your glandular system you will never know how to command your life. Suppose a person is hypoglycemic, let us talk facts. All you do to that guy is put him in a position not to eat four hours, the person will freak out. You will never know about it. Four hours. Because their highest limit is three hours, within three hours their sugar level comes to the point they freak out. So all you have to do is stretch them four hours and there they fall apart. What a hypoglycemic has to do? Two things. Either he should know Udhyanbandh, Udhyanbandh, the lock of the diaphragm, either he knows that or he should have a orange in the bag. And when there is two hours he should skin the orange and eat it. Either way it will work.

When person is neurotic, not chaotic, neurotic. Normal neurotic, normal, which majority of us is. There is no denying of it. In one way or the other we all think others... you know what is the test of the neurotic who feels others are neurotic? That's the first test. Because when you have a green glass, everything looks green to you. It maybe brown. So to neurotic the whole world looks like a neurotic. And this is one situation I have faced eight years in United States of America when people tell me, 'react! React!' I say react to what? I should react to what? "Sir this man is abusing you."

I say, "Yes, he is abusing me, I am listening, you are listening."

"Then react."

"React to what?"

"He is abusing you."

"True! For me it is to investigate what makes him to abuse. It's not my job to react to him. I know he is abusing."

A week back somebody called me, "Sir, he is slandering you."

I said, "Investigate why?"

He said, "No, no, no he is furious."

I said, "Must investigate why? If the guy is furious, he is abusive; there must be some problem with him."

He said, "I do not know what is the problem."

I said, "I tell you what is the problem. His problem is within three months he is going to do something, which we all don't approve. So he has started abusing ninety days ahead. After all he has studied with 3HO. He knows to confront or to break a habit it takes ninety days, right?" I said, "From ninety days now he has planned something."

"So sir, what should we do?"

I said, "Wait ninety days. It will come back, cat will come out of the bag."

December, January, February, now March is going on? Yeah, he even didn't go ninety days. One day his turban was off, there he goes telling this, telling that, telling that. So somebody told me what is it? I said, "Cat is out within ninety days!"

"What next?"

I said, "Watch other ninety days."

Because neurosis and thinking about neurosis has a space time period, ninety days. You maybe a best planner but for every neurotic thing you cannot think beyond ninety days. That's your human limit, automatic. For goodness you can think of Infinity. That's your power. And what is ninety days folks? How many months it is?

Students: (-----)

YB: Average three months and there are four weathers. It is natural. Three months is a natural period of our life. Our weather changes, our metabolism changes. Our environments and circumstances changes. Our mood changes. Our lot of things changes. So nature has provided ninety days for a change. When you want to be a nut, it takes ninety days you want to be a saint, it takes ninety days. Forty days is a habit forming. Because Moon governs the mind so there is a cycle of Moon, which is called twenty-seven, twenty-four hours, so naturally on average it comes to thirty days, so forty days is we give twelve days over. So we presume and in a mental behavior that if a person can go for thirty days very strictly, honestly, accurately on a situation and gives a twelve days extra, he has the capacity to make it. If he has ninety days done it, he has the understanding to make it. If he is gone over two and half years then he falls, then he falls because of his own attempt to fall. Then he falls deliberately.

And what are the deliberations? Deliberations of law of polarity is there is a power, confrontation between Earth and ether. When you go higher, gravity pull is there. Sometime you are so afraid of the unknown, you want to fall back to the known and that is called the spiritual fall. That is why in KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. Kundalini Yoga It is a Raaj Yoga that creates vitality in the body, balance in the mind, and openness to the spirit. It is used by the householder, busy in the world, to create immediate clarity. The fourth Guru in the Sikh tradition, Guru Ram Das, was acknowledged as the greatest Raaj Yogi. (See Raaj Yogi.) He opened this long secret tradition to all.

The fourth Guru in the Sikh tradition, Guru Ram Das, was acknowledged as the greatest Raaj Yogi. (See Raaj Yogi.) He opened this long secret tradition to all. they say Shaktipadh, Shaktipadh starts after three years, between three years and seven years. All these calculations by the sages are a great study for years and years of human mind. Today Nirinjan was reading a letter to me, which she was writing to all the parents. It's a beautiful letter. It's the most solid truth, which she has written. All she is telling the parents is don't give your children what you didn't like yourself. All she is telling the parents your parents were also ignorant. They didn't act right and now it is your time to act right.

Now look at United States of America, normally on average people get divorced here at the age of thirty-six to forty. First they build the family, do their best, sweat themself, kill themself and when it comes a time of relaxation they separate. Why? Why? Because foundations are not right. Foundation is not accurately right. Foundation is not deep enough to take the pressure of time and space. When foundations are not right, you may construct on it anything wonderful. It won't stand. In the law of energy if you give energy to a wrong hand it will not do any good rather it will destroy. Human body can be beautiful.

Human body must have in it a human behavior and human body can have any shape but human behavior has one shape and it is a standardized shape. It starts with compassion, it starts with understanding, it starts with sacrifice, compassion, understanding and sacrifice, these three principles constitute the basis of love. Man of truth shall not play the games. Why he has to play? We have to develop in us that consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. . And we have to take, why this 3HO way of life has made... in spite of the fact you know everybody is free, anybody can come to the class, nobody has to do this, nobody has to do that, there is no need of has to, has to.

I was telling you yesterday some of the people in 3HO way of life are very committed. After commitment and all that beauty, now they think they made it. No folks, you have not made it. You have to keep on practicing those Kriyas, which brought you out of the mud to the reality. You let them go, you live on the reserve. And you will meet the same fate, which people of the other Dharmas have met, other religions have met, other groups have met. Our principle is well-defined, SadhanaSadhana , Saadhana A spiritual discipline; the early morning practice of yoga, meditation, and other spiritual exercises.

I said, "Yes, you are liberated."

"Really you see it?"

I said, "I see it, you are going to fall apart soon."

(Students laugh)

"You are liberated from consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. ."

He said, "How?"

I said, "The procedure, which brought you this consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. that you even could say liberated, you have left that procedure fool, who is going to maintain you?"

Progress is assured. People who do not understand they buy and sell people. I was talking to a great rabbi; he told me that in eighteen years he has taught lot of people. Perfect religion. I said, "Do you remember anybody out of that has remained."

He said, "They just come, they stay, they study and then they leave."

I couldn't understand. I asked, "Do you have... you have investigated why they leave? Have you ever checked the base?" God created humanity and human being has created itself in time and space to experience the Infinity. Happiness lies when we think there is a world around us. Ever you want to become unhappy I tell you the formula. You want to become unhappy right now? Just I tell you the procedure, just one minute. Now you are all very good, your auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. looks beautiful, right? And we have talked all this time. Now I want you to become unhappy.

Think about yourself, will you make it? Just think, close your eyes and think one minute. Right now. Just about yourself. Will you make it, just think that. Open your eyes. Now keep your eyes closed so I don't want you should see each other. Let us make it secret, right? Now keep your eyes closed again. Don't look out. Now those who thought they will make it, raise your hands. Okay, keep eyes closed though, put your hands down. Those who thought they couldn't make it or not sure whether they will or not, raise your hands. And now those who thought they couldn't decide it, raise your hands. And those who thought this question was unnecessary raise your hands. And put down your hands. And those who thought this question was very essential raise your hands. Now this is the last question. Those who decided come what may immaterial of the fact what goes through; they are going to make it. They are going to make it, raise your hands.

Put your hands down. You are eighty percent score. Open your eyes. It is not whether you can make it or you cannot make it or it happens or not, what matters do you have the will to make it? When you have the will to make it fifty percent you have made it. And final other fifty percent it is the hand of your Creator, period. I love you, whether you love me or not, it is your ball in your pot, not in mine. Fifty percent I have made it, I love you. And now fifty percent is your love whether you return my love or not. When you, I expect the return then it's a business anyway, forget it. It is not the life that matters; it is the courage you bring to it. People whom we call heroes, people whom we call saints, people whom we call great people, are all those who have shown their Infinite Spirit of God. And now please sit on your both heels.

Side B

Both heels, it is a wonderful organization of mind and body. Both heels and both hands like this. It's a very powerful exercise if you will do it you will enjoy it. All done? And your chin should be up, absolutely as up, as up systematically as you can do. I tell you whether you have weakness possibility of dying or not. That will show up. Yeah, yeah, I mean you should, you can have your... thermometer can tell you temperature, right? And you are going to measure your insanity right now. Put your chin up, honestly as up as you can. All right, got it? Now cheating is self-deceiving. It's not my problem. But this is going to give you a total basic required human strength. And now so, so, so, so.

(Students breathe heavily)

YB (over the exercise): So, so, so, so... don't move your neck, that is the beauty of it. Solid neck. So, so, so, so. I won't put your more than three minutes, don't worry. I am very compassionate. Hung, hung, hung, hung, so, so, so, so. So, so, so, so. Do it for your health and do it for your head, this crazy cantaloupe, which you are carrying on your shoulders will freak out. Nobody will make you do it, I can tell you, you can go to any 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. and SwamiSwami Master. , you are all right, just say few words. So, so, so, so. Don't give up my child, keep up. Inhale!

(Students stop heavy breathing)

And hold this breath and chin up, hold it and chin up, let the body regulate its energy by its own force. Relax. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Three minutes, three minutes, three minutes is not a big deal. Not at all. Three minutes you can do it in a restroom, in a bathroom, on airport. One day I was in a very great tragedy, I couldn't even drag my legs, I said, "Well, I want to go to men's room," they said, "Well..." there then I forgot that I don't have some ten cents you know.

(Students laugh)

So on one side of the bathroom this all ten cent and ten cent and poor 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. doesn't have cent you know. So I realized how rich I am. At the dire emergency I don't have a pocket. They have done a good deal to me. So but I looked around, I didn't give up and I found that those rooms for handicaps you know. That's always open.

(Students laugh)

And now I know by my experience that's one area handicap as I am I can walk in. So I went there. And it was open. You know God helps all people in different ways. So I went in, I locked it, I satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. in, did my thing in two minutes, it looked like normal. You know if you go to such a place and stay there for one hour, people start investigating. There was nothing to investigate. Did my thing, I came out bright and cheerful, let's go. Everybody looked what happened. Now what he got in that handicap little booth. Nothing, just did a KriyaKriya Literal meaning is "completed action." A Kundalini Yoga Kriya is a sequence of postures and yoga techniques used to produce a particular impact on the psyche, body, or self. The structure of each kriya has been designed to generate, organize, and deliver a particular state or change of state, thereby completing a cycle of effect. These effects have been codified and elaborated by Yogi Bhajan and form the basic tools used in yoga and its therapeutic applications. , did it three minutes, got myself tuned up, there you go. Living is an art and it's a science. And it comes to those who have the courage. Many speak of...

(Students sing "Many speak of courage...")

(Song stops)

YB: This is the most beautiful thing you sing. Mind and soul are his alone. If you think at this part of this prayer and realize deep in your heart what you are saying and if you can live it, God will be proud of you. As an artist can be proud of a most beautiful piece, though he produces many. But of one, which he is proud of is which excels everything. Mind and soul are his alone. May the long time...

Students sing: May the long time Sun shine upon you...

YB: O Creator of this creation and this congregation of all these creatures, O unknown through the known O being, O supreme being of all beings, O infinite through every finite. O sprout, which is cause of every tree, O every tree, which is cause of every seed, O great cycle of death and life, it was Thy grace whomsoever you directed to form this congregation, that creatures participates.

But when you sleep you just think you slept just... you may have passed eight hours, that's true. But if you think you have just slept, just next minute and you got up just now, that's what is called sleep. And that sleep comes to only those who have not to pass their stool but their stool passes automatically. They are all both interrelated. People who have constipation, they don't sleep right. And those who eat beets they can't be constipated. Beets! Beets! The God given laxative. Everything goes red with it.

And those who have been eating meat in their pressure of parents or because of the social system they may have some little bits left in their body. So clean it out that way.
