... What is that camp outside?

Students: (----)

YB: Oh, baby camp?

Students: (----)

YB: Good. That is very nice. What happened to the Mexican camp? Yeah. So what should we talk now? Okay let me finish this cauliflower, I'll tell you.

... System cannot take the required juices out. That is why, they are taken. In Indian cooking everything is cooked in gheeGhee Clarified butter. , oils are never used, oils are the alternative because gheeGhee Clarified butter. is not available and gheeGhee Clarified butter. is one thing which is preserved, preserved without preserving it. Oil can get ruined, after a while, it can catch up with own bacterias but gheeGhee Clarified butter. is when the butter is clarified and transferred into a gheeGhee Clarified butter. state, you can keep it anywhere you want, it won't, it won't spoil and it has a melting point just with the body...

... You think I am going to talk to anybody else, I only catch up those people who do not know who they are.

(Students' laughter)

You have survived. Aren't you from the ex-Espanolian.

Students: Yes sir.

YB: Yeah, yeah and I took you and marry you.

Student: Yes sir.

YB: And I arrange everything against you right?

(Students' laughter)

I am really your enemy, hah? You are right. I wanted to acknowledge it, it's being taped.

(Students' laughter)

Come on latecomers. There are some people behind this truck, how many?

(Students' laughter)

You know how late I am, I came almost one hour late. I think you have some television sets in the tents to watch this Marti and Mindey and something.

(Students' laughter)

Why not people come on time here? Come on latecomers watch at them please, haha, hah, come on now. I waited all this time to start, come on, hurry up. That's good two friends have found each other, that is nice.

Concept of concession in life, concept of concession in life and the need and demand of it, even the very thought of it, into the depth of your 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 need concession in life is actually there is a definite deficiency in life and you are giving yourself a chance that you can't handle it. Actually the Creator has made your life totally complete and perfect and basically in elementary 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. there is no need of any concession whatsoever. However looking at reality this is what we want. We have a concept of comfort. Concept of comfort which we have is shuniyaShuniyaa , Shuniya A state of the mind and consciousness where the ego is brought to zero or complete stillness. There a power exists. It is the fundamental power of a Kundalini Yoga teacher. When you become shuniaa then the One will carry you. You do not grasp or act. With folded hands you "are not." It is then that Nature acts for you. , I do nothing, I don't need anything, I don't want anything, everything should be happening. When I don't need anything and I don't want anything and I don't know anything, then why anything should be happening in connection with me. That's what it is and this is called duality.

Once I asked somebody, "Why you make that much money? What you need it for?"

He said, "I want to have a very comfortable retirement." It was five years ago and then I went to his funeral. He had a comfortable not even life, the guy die at thirty-eight but you should have seen him working, it would have told you how much work can make you go crazy? At night he will sit down and check the stocks he has to buy, he had a full job and then he has a second job, two jobs plus stock market he will handle individually for himself, these three jobs he was doing and he was making tons of money, tons of money, not to pay the taxes, he was investing his tons of money, very successful and within my own knowledge in five years he built up a empire and died of a heart attack and so busy he was, he never left his will, there was no will.

You can be sometime that busy, we are tying to ask 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. TeerathTeerath Sacred place. Singh our chancellor and attorney at law to come here two days, twenty-fifth, twenty-sixth to perhaps talk to you, you woman and the law, so that you can ask as many question as you want and get accustom to know what is going on in the world but it is subject to, if he can afford to come, we are all ready for it. This habit that, 'I want comfort,' this imaginary comfort is the root cause of your all wrong imaginations. Actually speaking frankly fulfillment of a job to which you have commitment is actually your happiness. You took a project, you complete it successfully, it is done and you can say, 'wow, I got it, I did it and it is done' but on the other hand, when you don't want to work, then you have one problem to keep yourself busy. Some people do not want to exercise, they get sick.

A city man went to a village and he saw at the middle of the day, sun was burning hot and this man was ploughing(plowing) the field and sweating and muddy he was. He washed him and he came on the well and satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. and waited for him after two, three hours of hard work, he finished his job and came there to eat. He came he went under the well, clean himself, satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down, changed his that one dhoti he was wearing and he said, "Welcome, you have come from city."

He said, he said, "Yeah, I have come from city, I have one question to ask, what you were doing under that skin such burning sun?"

He said, "Where?"

He said, "In those fields."

He said, "Oh no, my skin is not burning, put your hand on my skin because with mud and all that and sweat it is called mud massage."

(Students' laughter)

He said, "Do you have you in the city the mud baths?"

He said, "Yeah."

"How much you pay for that?"

He said, "Whatever thirty rupees for the..."

He said, "I get it free, look at my skin, it is soft as butter and I was doing nothing, I was just going through the mud bath. I think in city you people get it."

He said, "How you know?"

He said, "We ask them lot of money for this dirt they carry it here from trucks for preparing those mud baths."

He said, "This ploughing(plowing) and having a good crop next year is just extra."

(Students' laughter)

Do you understand that part of it? Work gives you commitment, commitment give you fulfillment, fulfillment give you happiness and happiness give you grace and grace give you the Divinity, the dignity and grace in itself, the feeling of it, the feeling of it. Otherwise, by doing this left and right business, this imaginary business, that if I don't have any work, I have lot of money, then I will be happy, nobody is happy that way.

'Iis Dehi Kho SimranSimran A deep meditative process in which the naam of the Infinite is remembered and dwelled in without conscious effort. Dey.'

The angels worship for this body. Iis Dehi, this body you got it through God's service Har Khe Sev, the purpose of this body is because you got it through the grace of God and worship of God, you should with this body, you should worship God and the worship of God is to the ecstasy 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. where you can remember NamNaam , Nam The manifested identity of the essence. The word derives from Naa-ay-ma , which means "that which is not, now is born." A Naam gives identity, form, and expression to that which was only essence or subtle before. It is also referred to as the Word. Chitavey. May God dwell in your remembrance. That is the highest state of 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. . When you remember God in your remembrance and in your remembrance when it is there then all other things are very shallow and unwanted by you, then you come out to be real and it is that reality which takes away the division of polarity or mayaMaya The creative power of the Creator that restricts and limits. It creates the sense of limitation that leads us to identify with experience, the ego, and things. Because of this it is often thought of as the illusion that blocks us from the spirit. But, as Guru Nanak (see Sikh Gurus) reminds us, you need not be attached to the productions of maya. Instead they can be used to serve and express the higher consciousness and spirit. Maya is simply Karta Purkh, the doing of the Great Being. Maya takes the ineffable into the realm of the measurable. and set you free.

Your freedom is very, very important to you. By baboonery or by commotional drama or by emotional fluctuations or by flirtation, or having a flirtatious mind, you are not going to make anything. Nothing comprehensive can be achieved by you and the most important thing in your life is, how you look at things, what is the overall picture of life you take?

Do you want in your life to be you or you want to be dependent. If you want to be dependent in your life, you are not going to be independent and independent does not mean that you are just free, there is no such thing free, if you are flying on aeroplane at thirty-three thousand feet and if somebody drops you and say you are free, in couple minutes you know what is going to happen to you. You need a parachute always to jump. You have to. You need a protection, a shield, a pad. Even this body, look at the cosmic law, this my body has a 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. , that's my shield. Nothing God has made which doesn't have a protective 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. around it and you need a protective 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. . That's why we work, we work to provide ourself the protection.

Work is a worship, accomplishment is happiness, work accomplished, job accomplished but in that there are values, higher values and lower values, do you work for higher values or you work for lower values. That is the only point of dispute or which are the higher values and which are not, this you can always check. Some people are so bad that they suffer and then they get into the suffering again. They get same, they repeat the same trauma again and again, it continuously go on without knowing whether what it means, where it will lead to them. So what they get is, they get into that trauma so deeply that they don't care what their teachers tell, what the teachings are and what commitment is, what change can be and how can they change for the better. All they care is to satisfy that phobia of that trauma in their personality. So what they do is they, they enacted drama around the trauma to befool the world. But actually they can't befool the world, they end up befooling themself. Because anything which is of higher 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. shall, that is the first test of it, it shall demand sacrifice. It shall demand work, it shall demand sacrifice and it will be having a definitely one pointed pressure, these are certain signs of it. What did I say those three things?

Students: (----)

YB: And it shall definitely have a definite discipline. Because there is nothing impossible but to begin with such things will give you a impossible goal to achieve, impossible performance to, it looks impossible and that is called challenge, fifth thing is?

Students: Challenge.

YB: So repeat all these five things to me please.

Students: (----)

YB: These are the symptoms of higher values and opposite to that are lower values. In relevant term a person is supposed to understand that when the values, these five values are looked into higher 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. is achieved, when higher 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. is achieved happiness dwells with in. When the happiness?

Students: (----)

YB: All right, think over it today and I am not going to teach you anything more. It's a very serious subject, I like to discuss in detail from you tomorrow, think about it and make your mind and make your comments and I like to have lot of questions on that, lot. Now you ask me question, is there any? Yes?

Student: What do you mean by elementary 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. ?

YB: Elementary 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. is called in simple word Christ 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. or divine 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. , it is elementary. There are elementary people, there are complementary and supplementary people, elementary people are those who redeem complementary and supplementary people to God 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. , balloon, baboons and humans.

Student: If you work in a higher 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. , can you ever get burnt out?

YB: If you work in higher 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. can you ever get burnt out? No, never, impossible. Higher 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. is the flow of the spirit, you can never be burnt out. There maybe hard, there maybe pain, there maybe challenges but you can't be burnt out. Yes?

Student: Could you please explain one pointed pressure?

YB: One pointed pressure is, when you go swim opposite the current, the entire river pushes you backward and you push forward and that's called one point pressure. At that moment to survive or to achieve you have to put your total strength to go upward, you can learn it from that fish which goes up the river, what they call it?

Students: (----)

YB: Yeah, you all remember it, see. Yes?

Student: (----)

YB: What she said?

Student: (----)

YB: Now let me first listen to this question, I will come to you meanwhile you read the question, yeah what is it?

Student: (----)

YB: It is outside because outside pressure you only feel because you are not very sure and confident inside. Outside pressure you can never feel, suppose I am very confident about myself, what do I care who says what? I will only care when I do not know what I am doing, then I like to have opinions. I mean to say, I walk out like this in rotary club anywhere. I don't think that it doesn't matter but for somebody God, tie and suit and drama and trauma and whole thing and they walk in very special way, I do not know what, what they want to achieve and I do not know what I lose, I make joke with everybody there. I am very casual in life, you know there is nothing when you reach the plateau, that's it, what do you care? What pressure? Who can insult you? I mean to say, what more they can say against me? Which already has not been said in these ten years, what more can be said. Now it is time to, people will say good things. I was reading one chapter of that commemorate volume of mine, I never knew that I am that holy.

(Students' laughter)

Sure I never knew, it was a wonderful. I mean to say, that, that commemorated volume may not do any good to you but God if you really want to do something to your parents, just hand it over, that will do it. I mean to say, everything has been documented said, supported and there in a very American fashion. And something which we can give it to our children, this is the man we knew. If it has no value, it has this value, this is the man we knew, that's enough. Yes?

Student: (----)

YB: Because insecurity, insecurity, insecurity is cause of every movement because once we become secure, then we become the hub and nucleus of the entire magnetic wavelength then everything is there, then we don't need anything. Unloved people are always very insecure and unloved people are not who are loved you can be loved physically but if you are not loved spiritually, you are very unloved. Physical love, what we are trying to do is, we are substituting the physical love for the spiritual love. What they call? Plato, Plato, Platorian love what they call?

Students: Platonic love.

YB: Platonic love. For platonic love we substitute the physical love and that's the wrong we are committing on this planet. We need that platonic love more than because that is the love which can reach our soul, physical love is hugs and kiss and bugs and huhuh, not going to make it. If somebody tells me I am very beautiful, I am great and just say beautiful word in my praise for one hour, all I can say him thank you. But if somebody can give me experience, all I can say is, thank you, oh, it's wonderful, it's beautiful but question is how I will project that greatness and if I can't do it, I am doomed.

You know what is the situation of that thing, a person is awfully hungry, awfully hungry and somebody serves him a food in a cage, steel hot steel cage, tell him to eat it. He knows it is hot, it is smelling, it is beautiful, he can't tear off the cage, he can't eat it and I have seen people, I have seen people doing that, what they did put, they put meat in a very powerful cage, which has lot of awful claws and these wolves come, hungry wolves, they stampede to that place and they will fight with that cage and it is made to be like a kind of a goat or something but those things in that tear up their claws and they bleed to death and wolf is not a ordinary animal and that is how you have a duality. Because this physical, what is a physical love is true, if this all the sex whatever you think is true, then how you will live when you are eighty, ninety, when you have no sexual urge? What you will do then?

I don't care, when you are eighteen you can do, sixteen times a day, good luck to you but what about when you are eighty, how you will live then? That's why in old age, you will see people very miserable because they do not have that platonic love that real that elementary love of their concept is not right, they are not well directed, they don't have experience of God, they do not have this concession, Ang Sang Wahe Wahe Guru , Whaa-hay Guroo A mantra of ecstasy and dwelling in God. It is the Infinite teacher of the soul. Also called the gur mantra. GuruWahe Guru , Whaa-hay Guroo A mantra of ecstasy and dwelling in God. It is the Infinite teacher of the soul. Also called the gur mantra. Guru 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. and then they become very lonely. I mean sometime I feel really it is my personal experience don't, I act differently because that's my job as a teacher but who wants whom and for what? You are pretty self-contained, God made you in His own image, you don't see it that is your problem. Yes?

Student: (----)

YB: What's that?

Students: (----)

YB: No, no, no, live in comforts, to do certain works, if you have to go to Espanola, you may walk but if you have to go to Santa Fe everyday, you need a car. Comfort and requirement of things are relevant term but if you want to go to Espanola on foot and you want to go Santa Fe on a elephant, I mean you are crazy.

(Students' laughter)

It takes you one day and a half to even reach there on a elephant. You know what I am talking about? For some people certain things are luxuries and with the same things for other people is totally necessity. So you have to choose what is your luxury and what is your necessity, you must have all the necessities, if you cannot have any luxury. Luxury is something which you have which you can give, you can spare, you can share, necessity is which is just for your own maintenance. Yes?

Student: (----)

YB: Through, if you behave gracefully, if once you can give this impression how that, you are a graceful person, nothing wrong can come to you. That is a requirement, that's the work you have to do.

Student: Sir in ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. everyday we say, after worshiping the Adi Aad Shakti , Adi Shakti The primal creative force. ShaktiAad Shakti , Adi Shakti The primal creative force. Shakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. , how don you worship the Adi Aad Shakti , Adi Shakti The primal creative force. ShaktiAad Shakti , Adi Shakti The primal creative force. Shakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. ?

YB: That is the primal force, that one.

Student: It's also female energy.

YB: Yeah.

Student: How do we worship it?

YB: Gobindey, Mukandey, Udharey, Apaarey, Hariying Karying Nirnamey, Akamey, isn't not in everyday's prayer of us?

Student: (----)

YB: No, no, no, no, no, no, we just keep the males happy, it's not male.

(Students' laughter)

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. Gayatri, Gayatri is a female word itself. Male, male what? Mail is in the post office.

Student: (----)

YB: Oh ask every male, is there any male without female energy direct or indirect that I am not discussing. Aad Guray Nameh, Aad is female, Guray is the male Nameh is the bow. Jugad Guray Nameh, time is again female creativity. SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Guray Nameh, SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. , SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. is again female, Siri is absolutely female. What do you want to do? I don't want to teach the Sikhs will get upset because they are more maleish, religion is very clear. Yeah?

Student: I noticed that you are saying, Hariying Karying and you teach us by saying Haring, Karying, I wanted to know why?

YB: I do lot of things.

(Students' laughter)

Student: Which one is right?

YB: Whatever you can read, but I have read in the scriptures, you know what is the matter of pronunciation in Gurmukhi you pronounce it different in Sanskrit you pronounce, Sanskrit pronunciation is Hariying Karying, this is Sanskrit pronunciation because it is in the Nad Hariying Karying in 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. Gayatri is correct also. So I sometime mess up my Sanskrit knowledge with my Hindi and with my, this knowledge with that even, you know I have many facets. Do what I tell you to do, don't do what I do.

(Students' laughter)

Haha, what haha? Yeah?

Student: (----)

YB: Yeah and he lies on her Sikh bed, have you seen those people, rich people with twenty pillows on the back, twenty telephones around the bed, ten secretary standing, telling sir, sir, sir and there is a one attendant who opens the eyes and say, "Sir, this is 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. Bhajan."

He say, "Oh thank you." And he does that. These are those people who never worked for all what they got?

Student: When you chant GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. and you vibrate the sound through the tongue, it has an effect, what is the effect, is there any difference in the effect when you mentally chant because you are not similar in the meridian points.

YB: Same thing if your mentally concentrate on the third eye or you stimulate with the tongue properly does the same thing. There is no big difference, whether it is BekhriBekhri Sound made with the tip of the tongue. i.e., aloud. or it's Kant or it is Hriday or it is Ajana or it is Anhad, it's the same thing, it is a, you know these people who know one little thing, they make it so complicated and so great for telling you but if you look at the whole thing, it's the same thing. What is this Judaism and Christianity and Sikhism and Hinduism and Buddhism and Taoism and Daoism and yeah, I am married (?), it's a way to God, there are twenty-three freeways, catch anyone but question is which one and be on it. Yeah?

Student: Yeah, you said that the elementary 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 there is no need for concession, how...

YB: But there is no concession.

Student: And there is no concession?

YB: There is no concession, in love and in elementary 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. there is no concession. (?), there is no concession.

Student: Then how would you differentiate between concession and compromise?

YB: There is no comprise, in love do you see compromise? When that girl of your you discuss she talk, you talk to her all wisdom and that foolish blind girl told you one word, I love him. There is only one way that she get ruined by him and then she will know that she was wrong. That's why they say love is blind, you did your best, you did as a sister, you did as a experience person, you did out of concern, you did out of compassion, you did out of whatever it was and when you reached her heart in her head, all she said to you, no, I am no more (?). He may not know what love is but she thinks because she is blind. In love you can be totally blind either way, in elementary 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. , you can only be blind to one way and that is the higher way, that's the difference between the two, I could have used the word love. Love can go exactly to the Earth and to the ether with the same force but elementary 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. absolutely has only one direction and that is Infinity, it won't touch the finite. Anything you heard, and you feel about Infinity is because of the concept of the elementary nature in you, there is no concession.

What is the concession everyday I am aging, what concession I can have? All I can do is, I can remain healthy, look ten years younger or ten year older, that's all and that doesn't make difference at all. There is no concessions, you know it is a very funny thing God is merciful, God is this, I want to keep God that way, God is merciful, God is nice, God is beautiful, God is everything but whom they have to give you the concession and when you ask them, there is no concession, they said, oh yeah, mother nature has no concession. So put down the woman, then use the word Mother Nature.

Basically you don't have any concession to yourself, you cause a cause and you create the effect then you have to go through the effect, there is absolutely no concession, nothing. I mean to say, it is just totally hallucination. People think somebody take drugs, I said, no, everybody is drugged. They have to wake up, they are sleeping, they are crazy. It is not much to love, it is not much to go through it is, it is nothing, it is a simple thing. Cause shall have a effect, equal and... Newton third law of force, every action has reaction equal and opposite, that's law of Newton third law of force, right? You know and that is law of 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. and that is law of action and reaction and that is called Avagavan, the whole science. There is no concession.

You will get a human life, you will meet a teacher, you will confirm to him, you will be liberated. Now you miss a teacher, you are gone and what teacher can tell you? Nothing, he will tell you this is your destiny and you say, no, you are doomed. Where is concession? Where teacher converts you, where teacher changes you, nowhere it is you and you alone. I have not seen concession anywhere. In every aspect of life, you have to come through and why not to come through to begin with? Have you seen, if you don't work, don't they fire you, they hire you, they fire you because of work, if you deliver the goods, you are hire, you don't deliver the goods, you are fire, you deliver the goods you are darling, you are not delivering the goods, you are okay, you are this, you are bitch, you are this, God knows what they say. It's a ridiculous to even think, that without doing something, you are going to get anything, nothing.

I walked with my beard, I walk like this and it is all happened to me, some people think I am a fraud, some people think I am a God. Let people think between God and fraud, why should I think? Why anybody should think between fraud and God? Because neither there is any fraud, nor there is any God, it is as it is. It is at the level of those who see God in me, they will always see God in me, those who see fraud in me, they will always get into frauds. That's why, I tell people don't make me mad. If you can't make me happy, it's fine. Because essence of life is essential in life to understand that life is to live and if you live it righteously, you will be righteous all around, if you don't, you will mess up then there will be a mess around. We are not asking anybody to do anything, all we are saying, get rid of mess. Oh the Catholic Church used to say, don't get into a mess, get into a mass.

They used to say, good things, they have forgotten everything these days. And somebody told me in France, the French people go to Church thrice. Once they are born, once they are married and once they are dead. Yeah?

Student: Can you explain the purpose of marriage, sir?

YB: Purpose of marriage is to fulfill the challenge of polarity of the male for purposes of that male should be considered to be found out to be honest, protective, provider and conscious person, a Dharmic person in two words. Yeah, doctor I listen.

Student: (----)

YB: We will continue to work with people because people is the grass root and if once you get into the higher institution, you have to always forget the grass root and there is always a trouble. We will learn from the mistake of the Catholic Church but do we do want all their wealth.

(Students' laughter)

We want their wealth and organization, we need it badly but we are not going to do one thing, we are not going to become papas and forget about people, that was the only mistake Catholic Church did and that was the blunder and that happened so bad, I can tell you the (?) Catholic Church defeat in Mexico. In Mexico a padre or the priest, cannot walk and give a sermon in the street without paying a fine. Because they got involved with the Government, actually they became government. So (?) has came took it over everything and just, they will say, wait a minute, all church property belongs to the people and therefore belong to the government, to peoples government and they didn't do anything wrong because already it was a government by itself.

You have a choice and religion to work with people I had a choice too, why to talk of the Church, I tell you myself, they told me, they will promote me to a worth of fifteen million dollar guarantee in three years and they will send off a corporation bah, bah, bah, I had a choice to work with those guys and get into this mayaMaya The creative power of the Creator that restricts and limits. It creates the sense of limitation that leads us to identify with experience, the ego, and things. Because of this it is often thought of as the illusion that blocks us from the spirit. But, as Guru Nanak (see Sikh Gurus) reminds us, you need not be attached to the productions of maya. Instead they can be used to serve and express the higher consciousness and spirit. Maya is simply Karta Purkh, the doing of the Great Being. Maya takes the ineffable into the realm of the measurable. or to get with people, I chose to get with people. Because anything which will work with people and truth will be succeeded because that is elementary.

Student: (----)

YB: Who?

Students: Numerology.

YB: Oh I learnt it, it's a good science provided you know it. All sciences are good if you know them. May the longtime...

(Students singing, 'May the longtime sunshine upon you...')

Hey where is my God?

(Students stop singing)

... We are going to give our friend governor the choice, either he comes here Monday and have dinner with us or we will go to the capital and give him a dinner or he give us a dinner. What we are going to do is, I have an appointment with him anyway, I wanted to go and say, "Hi to him."

And he called up today he said, "Oh you are a friend why you want appointment? When I am in town come in, I want to hear your voice."

I said, "You look good of it."

"I know, I got caught totally unprepared so, I put Harihar on line."

And I said, "Well, look you have to come."

He said, "I love to let us see the appointment, so what we are going to do is, on Dutch basis..."

(Students' laughter)

Anybody from Netherland here?

Students: Yes.

(Students' laughter)

YB: Okay, on Dutch...

Side B

... Well something like that, Harihar is going to call the secretary and going to make the arrangements but it will be a fun to go and visit, it's a beautiful capital. I mean to say, there are two beautiful places here which are very artistically made, one is the capital building It is a one building which is round. You will never find a capital building anywhere, there is a dome over it and round and everything but buildings are always like, he, she or pie, square and all that, this is only one capital in United States and all the fifty states, that, that's round and it inside it is very artistic. Have you seen this Albuquerque airport? How artistic the main entrance is and that lounge is? Exactly that way. There is a restaurant there at Albuquerque airport, it is called Kanchina Inn or something whatever it is. Had, how many have eaten there? It's a far-out salad for two dollars or something you can fill in for yourself for a week or so.

(Students' laughter)

But it's very beautifully decorated very comfortable. 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. NamNaam , Nam The manifested identity of the essence. The word derives from Naa-ay-ma , which means "that which is not, now is born." A Naam gives identity, form, and expression to that which was only essence or subtle before. It is also referred to as the Word. Kaur? Oh your husband has the pleasure to talk to me today, he feels well. I am obligated to tell you that he is happy.

(Students' laughter)

And he is happy because you are happy. You are going to meet him in Los Angeles or... Well, you will have a fun. Take him to Disneyland because all children go to Disneyland.

(Students' laughter)

You know three things when a woman doesn't do, she forgets that her husband is a child, she forgets her husband is a Bazurk, what is that translation of Bazurk?

Students: (----)

YB: Old man is not the translation of Bazurk.

Students: (----)

YB: No, no. What you will call a very wise grandpa ways which you have nothing, which does not show the age.

Students: (----)

YB: Elder is elder, elder, you know, English word Bazurk, what is the?

Student: (----)

YB: No.

(Students' laughter)

Jasbheer what you call?

Student: (----)

YB: Yeah Bazurk E Allah, that's what people in Moslem countries 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. is named as Bazurk E Allah, I mean to say, graceful man, right?

Students: (----)

YB: Sage, sage kind of a thing, yeah.

Students: (----)

YB: Yeah between the sage, sage minus age and minus age between the sage and child, you understand these two faculties. The link between a sage and a child is a woman, so I was asked a question today, who asked me, why, why, why, why woman wants to marry, if she is self-creative and if that is that? Oh I read that in teachings of 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. Bhajan that question where are you? Sixty-four days, sixty-four years or sixty, it is a, it is a average age granted on this planet Earth in these years and that's what we calculated. Took different life spans of countries and calculated, that's what it is. Idealistically you are granted a x-amount of age and then you go back and you know that will happen? What was the page of teaching of 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. Bhajan?

Student: (----)

YB: What 263, yeah, I read it.

(Students' laughter)

Do you, do you want to know a fact?

Students: Yes.

YB: When teachings of 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. Bhajan has jewels, rubies and pearls, that was the first title of it and this book is very small, this whole thing is leather bound book, almost this thick, it has I think two times, three time more than what it is there, were given to me to, given to me, I read it and I said, it's a far-out thing, who, whose work is this?

(Students' laughter)

And it's a truth and he said, "Sir, it has your quotations."

I said, "My quotation, are you kidding?"

He said, "Well, that is a fact."

So I said, "Please bound them down and give it to me sometime, I will read them." That is how first time I got aware of it and I liked them so much, then I thought it is better they are published. The publishing company liked it so much but they wanted my permission to reduce it because they thought that way it will be a huge big book. And yesterday I stole some copies which were given to Jasbheer Kaur for translating the commemorative volume into, into Punjabi version of it and I never saw that and I read few pages, I didn't believe that the poems and all those things, which I have ever said are mine but they are far-out, they (?) it.

(Students' laughter)

They are great and the definition of my horoscope which I gave, I mean to say, there is no astrologer which can beat me on this planet ever, I surpass the limit. It's a fun, it's a fun to see that those things I have said in these ten years. There was a one little poem which I liked the most, it was wonderful, highly effective and there is a definition of Siri Singh SahibSiri Singh Sahib Honorary title given to Yogi Bhajan to indicate his role as spiritual leader of Sikh Dharma in the West. His complete title within Sikh Dharma is Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji. and 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. Bhajan and Harbhajan Singh, that was a real, real, cracky thing I couldn't believe it.

(Students' laughter)

It's funny. It is funny the SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Kirpal Kaur could remember so many things and Premka could dig out so many things, it is just unbelievable. I mean to say, can you believe that, almost in ten years every word I have said is on a tape and you know sometime they will dig it out and they will find and you all will be shocked that those things were said, when you all were alive, you never bothered about it. Yeah, there were lot of things which are unbelievable in that, and I saw about few pages only.

It is four hundred and fifty pages and do you want to know why, why we satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. for one year to make this project? I tell you why? What is happening is we may not have that image of a Siri Singh SahibSiri Singh Sahib Honorary title given to Yogi Bhajan to indicate his role as spiritual leader of Sikh Dharma in the West. His complete title within Sikh Dharma is Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji. , who is a head priest of this organization called Panth KhalsaPanth Khalsa The ordained Ministry of Sikh Dharma; also refers to the general body of the Khalsa worldwide. which is a ordained ministry of the Sikh Sikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. DharmaSikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. Dharma 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. . But our children do, our children have a very great affiliation to that person. What happened was that some people in Indian lobby wanted to destroy that image, they thought that if the Americans and the American children relate to Siri Singh SahibSiri Singh Sahib Honorary title given to Yogi Bhajan to indicate his role as spiritual leader of Sikh Dharma in the West. His complete title within Sikh Dharma is Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji. and the ordained ministry of it and thus that way they relate to Siri 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. GranthGranth Literally: knot: book. , then there is no place for the middleman, there will not be second class citizen and we realize it too that if we will not have ordained ministry and we will not have secretariat and we will not organize our ownself by our ownself then we always be dependent and directed and used and misused for many reasons. So we started building it up and they started turning around and pinpointing mistakes and this and that and slanderous propaganda started going and but we were clever, we got held way ahead. To a commoner we gave the teachings of 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. Bhajan. To a meat eater we gave the Golden Temple conscious cookery book.

Well, you have to discuss it and you have to discuss it on nutritious values, on food values, on health values, on taste values and everything, it's a par-excellent situation, therefore, why we should give into it and then to children and to parents, we wanted to give the man called Siri Singh SahibSiri Singh Sahib Honorary title given to Yogi Bhajan to indicate his role as spiritual leader of Sikh Dharma in the West. His complete title within Sikh Dharma is Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji. . Because tomorrow, you can't say the facet of the whole thing of this one man, because when we saw that we said, my God, they may end up making us a cult and we don't want to be a cult, we are not. So, oh I want to talk to you? Come.

(Students' laughter)

But did you get that message?

Student: (----)

YB: Okay, okay, come, come, wait a minute. We made it hah. One and one makes not two, makes eleven, one and one makes?

Students: Eleven.

YB: Always remember that, one and one makes never two. When two parallel identities coincide to help, it is always equal to strength of eleventh, that's why eleven in numerology is unchangeable number. So what we were talking?

Student: (----)

YB: Oh you are here, let I wanted to be here from there, somebody is listening to it or not.

(Students' laughter)

Student: (----)

YB: Hah?

Student: (----)

YB: Yeah kind of.

(Students' laughter)

So what we thought is this is what we thought and it's very seriously you all should always think about it. We thought that, if tomorrow somebody challenges and there was a incident of blackmail. A man came with a name called Dr. Trolochan Singh. We had a letter and correspondence with him and what happened was that, that man was asking outrageous amount of money to write the life 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 Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. Ram DasGuru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. and we couldn't agree to that but Dr. Mansukani has written, already book is out now and we are getting some copies and we would like to give it to you, it's beautifully written and finally I met this man and he said to me, he said, "Yogiji either you pay me twenty-five thousand dollar cash, twenty percent royalty and all the investigating expense to write this book or I will end up writing book against you."

And what shocked me in my life was, I didn't say anything but I started check, I said, "Is he a doctor? Is he really a doctor of literature?" So we send up letter to SGPC asking them to, please this is the situation we want to know this man is who. They send us some documentary facts, one is that he never graduated and he has lied in two places on job asking the job to get as a doctor of literature and later on when he was asked to prove the certificates, he admitted that he is not and beg the pardon and left the post. He is not a doctor and secondly he was dismissed from Patiyala for stealing government money. He end up writing a book, which is called Sikhism and Tantrism, which is nothing but a slanderous story of his visit in America and it is so slanderous that anybody he met, any house he lived, any person shook hand with him, he put them all down, that's why it is not sold and it is not available anywhere but they did distributed about five hundred copies to the negative Indians.

When that thing happened, the idealistic situation was, all right, here is a man who is lying, this is Dr. Mansukani gave the suggestion and what is the counterpart of it? Do you want to, if you tell these are the lies, it doesn't solve the proposition because if you tell he lies about Siri Singh SahibSiri Singh Sahib Honorary title given to Yogi Bhajan to indicate his role as spiritual leader of Sikh Dharma in the West. His complete title within Sikh Dharma is Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji. or he lies about ShaktiShakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. Parwah Kaur that her she has put so much lipstick on her lips that it was like blood, now everybody of you know ShaktiShakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. ...

(Students' laughter)

ShaktiShakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. Parwah is the last person who will touch even a powder, what to taught of a lipstick and those kind of things are there apparent and so he, he, what we satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down and we decided that there is no solution to all this. I mean this is all we know and how can we are going to waste money to tell that ShaktiShakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. Parwah doesn't use lipstick.

(Students' laughter)

Or I think he, he, he spared Premka and he didn't say anything about you. Rest I think he has blasted everybody. Like about me he has written one line, I read about myself in one of the article which was commenting on him that I don't have a body of 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. but I have a body of a habit.

Student: (----)

YB: Or a Mahant, Mahant is Maha-anth the great end, those are very spiritual people and I do not know what he is driving at.

Student: (----)

YB: He wrote so much against 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. Bandha Singh, because 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. Bandha Singh asked him so many questions.

(Students' laughter)

You know 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. Bandha Singh is actually is Sikh genius, if you, if you really know him, I mean to say how skinny he is that's something different,

(Students' laughter)

But as far as acknowledgment is concerned you have to honor that man's work and his knowledge. So what happened was that Dr. Mansukani gave this idea and Premka said, "Why not we write the man we know."

So the idea came to write a book on Siri Singh SahibSiri Singh Sahib Honorary title given to Yogi Bhajan to indicate his role as spiritual leader of Sikh Dharma in the West. His complete title within Sikh Dharma is Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji. and I got out of it, I said, "Well, I am not Siri Singh SahibSiri Singh Sahib Honorary title given to Yogi Bhajan to indicate his role as spiritual leader of Sikh Dharma in the West. His complete title within Sikh Dharma is Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji. , you know I am a office bearer of it, I am the one who sit on that chair, I am not the chair, remember that."

And we said, "Why not to write a thing like, the man called Siri Singh SahibSiri Singh Sahib Honorary title given to Yogi Bhajan to indicate his role as spiritual leader of Sikh Dharma in the West. His complete title within Sikh Dharma is Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji. ," and that is how the title came about. We have faced from last five years such a political blackmail and unfortunately I have told people don't make me mad because the bad luck of the situation was my Saturn is in the eleventh house and my Mercury is in the eighth house, my Sun is in the seventh house, it's called projected combination because Jupiter is in the fourth house. All you have to do is to abuse me four, five times and get to a misery and be a pauper, that's the combination, I have seen it. So what I have done is for all these years I have practiced myself never to be mad, except once and it was that Akal Kaur.

Students: (----)

YB: Hah? Yeah. She is the one woman who successfully provoked me that's it and I said, "All right, you break this engagement, you marry this man and your marriage will be a lesson and a legend to 3HO. And now get out of my room and get out" and I am still very miserable because it took other two lives with it. And it was not right for me to do it but the high command used me at that moment so badly that I just went along with it. It was a sheer spiritual treachery being dished out in my presence in the name 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. , had she not used the name 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 Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. Ram DasGuru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. , I would not have uttered those words. Normally, I can tolerate everything in the planet but when somebody insults 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 Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. Ram DasGuru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. in my presence, that is the end of the world and she said, "I have meditated and this is what 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 Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. Ram DasGuru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. tells me."

I said, "Okay if this is so then we will meet you at the same frequency," but it costed us very heavy. Karta Singh and what else?

Students: (----)

YB: Yeah that was and that is why I told everybody that only on a special day you should decorate the Dhamalas and that was right too. Because Dhamala has a power to take you to ecstasy and we still are infancy we want to live. Do you understand what I mean?

Students: (----)

YB: What should I tell you? With Dhamala first of all, all the banis 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. should be known to you by heart. Number two, when you wear Dhamala, your word should be very kind, sweet and smiling. You can't wear a Dhamala and look like crazy. So that's why we told everybody that they can wear Dhamala on Baisakhis or on special occasions but you know everybody started wearing Dhamala, it makes you look good, it's wonderful, it's very powerful way of dressing but we satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down and we decided that it doesn't, nobody can tolerate the energy. Yeah?

Students: (----)

YB: Dhamala is a special way of wearing a turban, Dhamala, it's called Dhamala. Here you know it's a when you put total Dhamala as the way it is prescribed, then you cannot work on Earth, then you are, it really does something to people and we decided that, it's not very accurate that everybody out of fashion started wearing it, so we wanted it to be real and that was very nice everybody listened to.

Idealistic situation is right before us and it is exactly which happened two thousand years ago and which happened five thousand years ago. When Judaism started, it was a tribal law and tribal infiltration of God among the peoples heart and they wanted to see God, they went through exactly the same tragedy it as going, we are going through. They have to walk forty years from Egypt to Palestine, the Promised Land to become strong. Forty years. When Moses started with them, he was young and beautiful, mature and when he told them where the land is, he was old enough that he knew his time has come, he walked away.

Now second time came, when the Christianity started and the funny part of the Christianity is the only indicator that in which cave we are meeting was to draw the line of the fish. That's why, early Christians were very expert for drawing the fish, they will draw fish on the road and it will tell you all the directions and they will meet at night in certain dark caves to pray and they were so true and you must have heard all those stories that they lived to one thing only, 'Thou shall not kill.' Even when they fought with gladiators, they got killed that was different but when they totally got into the situation that they could have killed, they stopped. Do you know the story of that, what was his name? Who won every gladiator and when this, that Sahib what was his name?

Students: (----)

YB: Hah?

Students: (----)

YB: No, no, no, no. He was the one who popular, popularized the Christianity totally because he...

Student: (----)

YB: No, no, no, no.

Students: (----)

YB: Hah?

Students: (----)

YB: Oh no, no, he was the, he became Christian and after that we had the ...

Students: (----)

YB: Hah?

Students: (----)

YB: No saint waint business, you have none of you is Christian here.

(Students' laughter)

I know better than you, I simply forget the name.

Students: (----)

YB: Oh he has a movie too.

Students: (----)

YB: Hah?

Students: (----)

(Students' laughter)

YB: God you are all so dumb I mean you can forget that name of that guy, I forget it too, I am dumb with you also. Hah?

Students: (----)

YB: He was, he was the one who was, what they call this Roman Empire, what was his name?

Student: Alexander the great.

YB: No, no, they were all seizers, they were all seizers. What happened is this guy was the Christian and he was so brave that he will not, he will win the gladiator...

Students: (----)

YB: Yeah, I think so.

(Students' laughter)

Isn't the guy?

Students: (----)

YB: Or you just made it up?

(Students' laughter)

Yeah, this was the guy who will win the gladiator, shall not kill because the commandment to a Christian is Thou shall not...

Students: Kill.

YB: This all kosher business it is, it is a backdoor entry. Because it cannot be logically right, when the commandment say, it cannot be right for a Sikh, Ek Ong Kar, SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Sat Naam , Sat Nam The essence or seed embodied in form; the identity of truth. When used as a greeting it means "I greet and salute that reality and truth which is your soul." It is called the Bij Mantra - the seed for all that comes. Sat Naam , Sat Nam The essence or seed embodied in form; the identity of truth. When used as a greeting it means "I greet and salute that reality and truth which is your soul." It is called the Bij Mantra - the seed for all that comes. NamSat Naam , Sat Nam The essence or seed embodied in form; the identity of truth. When used as a greeting it means "I greet and salute that reality and truth which is your soul." It is called the Bij Mantra - the seed for all that comes. Naam , Nam The manifested identity of the essence. The word derives from Naa-ay-ma , which means "that which is not, now is born." A Naam gives identity, form, and expression to that which was only essence or subtle before. It is also referred to as the Word. . If this is what it is, if this is what it is, it cannot be then, that Sikh has to worship different demigods, it can't be. It's not, it's not logical, it's not true but now God knows who wrote the Bible four hundred years after it was written. If the commandment is Thou shall not kill, how can you justify...

(YB to a student: Oh I was waiting for you, welcome, we have to talk something.)

If it is true that Thou shall not kill then how this kosher business can be entered in the same book. Have you ever thought of that?

Students: (----)

YB: How?

Student: What is the mean by that?

YB: Hah?

Student: What is the mean by?

YB: What?

Student: Thou shall not kill?

YB: Yeah.

Student: What did they mean (?)?

YB: They meant not to kill.

There is no amendment, no alternative, no postponement, no suggestiveness, there is nothing, Thou shall not?

Students: Kill.

YB: It is a commandment of God. Thou shall not do?

Students: (----)

YB: Adultery right? It means you cannot mix water in milk, it's a adultery. You cannot sell margin as butter. It is adultery, adultery is not only in case of male and sex, adultery mean which is anything and which can be mixed with anything which is not that thing. Thou shall not worship anyone other than Thy one God, isn't that the first one, what are the Ten Commandments can you read it to me?

Students: (----)

YB: Okay, you know all of them? Come on all right, what is the one?

Students: (----)

YB: It means there is a one ultimate God, right? Then all this wooden Gods and the stone Gods and this plastic Gods are nowhere right? Okay, what is the second?

Students: (----)

YB: What?

Students: (----)

YB: I hear so many things, I don't know what you want to say.

(Students' laughter)

Students: (----)

YB: Hah?

Students: (----)

YB: Oh there is a chance for mother too?

(Students' laugher)

YB: Good. Okay.

Students: (----)

YB: Huh?

Students: (----)

YB: Oh they must be doing a lot in those days. God has to give a direct commandment. You know in Arabia, where Lord Hazrat Mohammed was the prophet and sometime you put down these Moslems, why they have four wives right? We, we call this ridiculous, what do you mean by that? Now look at the history of that time? History at that time was that woman was traded against sheeps. You can give sixteen sheep and you can take away four women. Four sheeps to a woman and three goats, bakriya. They call sheep is called bakri and the goat is called sheep is called bhed, bhed, bhed, bhed chaal, bhed chal, sheeps they all walk one way, stampede, nobody listen left and right. Goat is bakri. Can you believe that was a acceptable, social, ethical, governmental command.

So my dear women you have risen from a point minus zero twenty to this, congratulations. Now at least you are not sold against goats and sheeps. Can you believe that? It's a historical fact it is, it is a historical fact. So what will happen, a man will come with a herd of sheeps and he will say to this guy, all right, you have my one hundred and sixty sheeps and I will have your so many women and he will give them the sheeps and he will slug these womens, plug them with that, that shackle them and he will take them away.

Up to eighteenth century in all these Moslem areas, women were publicly auctioned. I think they are very civilized now and it's Hazrat Mohammed said, 'all right you can't have more than four women' I think he was very nice. I am just giving you comparative study, comparative study was every Christian and Jew has a God's commandment, it's not from Esa or it is not from Hazrat Ibrahim, it is not from Musa, Moses, it is not from Jesus Christ of Nazareth, it is from God. You know you swear on Bible, it mean, you swear but to uphold the principle of God commandment and the commandment is Thou shall not?

Students: Kill.

YB: What they are doing, look at them. Look around you and see, have you been to this butchering mill?

Students: (----)

YB: Slaughter starves not that. That slaughter house and mill the whole thing. You know what they do? They bring the trucks and in these trucks are these cows or whatever is going to be done, they bring it there and they are put in a kind of a channel kind of a path and they are asked to run. And when they go up at a point, they are given a kind of electric shock or something and they turn around and right there, they fall and then there is a just go like as you go on a plate and then the neck is cut and skin is taken out, turned out this, that. If you see all that processing, I don't think ever you can afford to eat meat. What goes on there, it's a very, very horrible experience. All this red meat and all this what you see in the shops is all dye work. It is not what, what goes on there.

Sardar 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. Charan Singh you many of you know, right? He was one day joking, we were traveling together and we were given vegetarian meals and some people were given steak and all that and he laughed and I ask him, "Why you are laughing?"

He said, "You know all the steak, which is being served on this BOAC ship is 1952 stock."

(Students' laughter)

He is BOAC store officer and I said, "I don't understand."

He said, "You know in the first class we serve these..." Those has claws what they call?

Students: Lobsters.

YB: Lobsters and he said, "You know when we bought them?"

I said, "When?"

He said, "In 1940."

(Students' laughter)

They bought them 1940 lobster on average computerize arrangement to they should be sufficient for other twenty, forty years and they freeze them. All these dinners, which you eat are made years and years ago.

(Students' laughter)

What happen is, what has to go tomorrow three days before that, that stock is taken out of the main freezer then it is defreezed and then it is made ready to go on the plane. He said, "If all the airlines start buying six months basis they go bankrupt. They buy totally wholesale, they buy it from their own agents and they buy twenty years, ten years, thirty years, forty years stock at once. You know their lettuce is very crispy, right?

(Students' laughter)

Have you eaten at the LA? Because in spite of the entire deep freezing, it is still six months old. Have you eaten tofu here?

Students: Yes.

YB: And have you eaten tofu in Washington D.C or in Los Angeles?

Students: Yes.

YB: Don't you feel the difference?

Students: Yes.

YB: Eat it and find it. No, it's not that it's very different. She made it everyday but, oh I am not talking of the other one. So people, religion was the science of reality to reach the clarity of mind and to discipline oneself to Infinity what happened is, man made it to his convenience. We don't practice religion, we shelter ourself behind the religion. How can a Christian sit on a plate and take a knife and that stuff and ever think that he is going to eat something, which has been killed.

Mukta Kaur said very beautifully once, she said, "We don't anything which swims away, which walks away or which flies away." And Jesus Christ said, "I give you the herbs and roots." There are three types of foods, one which grows under the Earth, one which grows within the range of three feet from the Earth and one which grows beyond three feet from the Earth. There are lot of theories how to eat but if you will eat, eat, roots, vegetables and fruits, cereals, lentils and all that stuff and also you use the natural stimulants, what they call them? Huh?

Students: (----)

YB: No, that is not...

Students: (----)

YB: Spices are natural stimulants. Why we cook the food, can anybody explain me?
