(?) singing beautifully so much as today.

(Students laugh)

What was the occasion?

Student: (------)

YB: Yeah people, if you want to kill a nation, take away their song, that's all it takes. The children who do not sing, people who do not sing, that's it.

I tried to get away from you today, what to do?

(Students laugh)

And then I realized I am not very conscious of time. I thought it was two o'clock when it was four already. So, came back from hot spring without taking any bath.

Student: (------)

YB: Well, it is very itchy when... I can say that people can get any sickness but shingles. When it comes, it is painful and when it leave, leaves you, it is more painful. But it's fantastic, came to be just noted, things come and go. All things come from God.

Students: All things go to God.

YB: Today we are talking on a very typical subject, that is called self-confirmation of grace, which is a very, very old teaching. Because self-confirmation is a habit. And people are trained like children, not as a adult. It is very difficult for you to understand that there is such thing as self-confirmation. You feel you are; you are not. Neither you are body, nor you are mind, nor you are the spirit, nor the soul. You are the cause of the three of these. Therefore, you must confirm, for every action into every sequence, that it will be just nothing but you. You cannot leave it to the environments and the circumstances. Because each sequence can lead to consequences, which you may not know, specially people who are Gemini.

(Students laugh)

They are in trouble. And these are called birth defects.

(Students laugh)

Capricorns, they are stone headed, they also do not know how to confirm (?); Sagittarius. These are certain signs these are three main which I have picked up out of the twelve. They are very typically given example. And in this zodiac sign, zodiac sign is always symbolic to people. That means this is your base, this is how you have been granted in relation to animal nature. From this comparison of the animal nature you are supposed to grow to a human being of a caliber, which is very?

Students: Noble.

YB: And graceful.

To become noble is a art and it is a scientific process. And process is, all the time, all the time obey the law, so that the law may obey you. This is a very serious sentence. If you obey the law, law shall obey you. When you obey the law of Mother Nature, Mother Nature shall obey you. When you obey the law of Divinity, law of Divinity will obey you.

But you must confirm with yourself, 'is it or is it not; to be, not to be,' that is the human question. 'Should I get letters from my beloved secretly over my husband? Should I write letters to my darling over my wife? Should I feel tempted to make a deal over my partner? Should I do away with the money over my right?' All these things shall continue to happen.

But there is a very fundamental and direct question, 'to be, not to be.' If you adapt to confirm with your own grace, with your own nobility and you confirm each time and you do not give in to something which is not noble; you won't give in to something which is not noble, the end result will be, you will be noble living person.

Yesterday there was a question, 'How one can be, become noble?' It is not manufactured outside of you. Nobility, if manufactured in you, it is within you. Nobility cannot be transported from outside. It is a self-training of self-esteem; it is a self-exertion of self-confirmation. If you are noble, you are the knight and you must fight unto death for your right to be right. You must fight to death, to the right for your?

Students: (------)

YB: And who fights you first?

Students: (------)

YB: Your husband.

(Students laugh)

Hmmm, hmmm. Noble woman shall fight her husband as a first instance. And when she'll win, then he will become noble. Who she will fight second? Her son and daughter. Who'll fight the third? The neighbors and the environments. So long, so forth that she will even fight her own pet dog.

(Student laughs)

I am not kidding. It is a path, it's a war path of fighting and it is endless fighting. Symbolically, this is the symbol of the noble woman. She has a double edged sword in one hand and she has left hand index finger raised towards God. That is the symbol. That means, anybody other than that one God shall meet my sword.

(Students laugh)

Now, where you stop? I just gave you this 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. and you freak out. Look at the symbol, now, all the times, twenty-four hour, that is her symbol. She fights and she lives and she affects and she's invincible, she's the flow of spirit, she's the radiance of life, she's none else but God living in a woman.

Through her silence she dictates the destiny of a being by giving birth to one son. Noble woman shall give birth to?

Students: (------)

YB: Saintly children.

It is the land on which the seed shall get the quality, not the quantity. Noble woman is confirmed to herself, confirmed to herself that she is nothing but virtues. And what is the first virtue of the noble woman? She's selfless. She's a selfless living grace through time and space, a messenger of God, radiance of light and existence of peace. And these all things are not difficult. They may look big to you, but they are very small. They become very, very small and very, very easy if a woman start confirming to herself to be, not to be.

She must know that she's noble and she must know, everything around her must fall to that nobility, that standard of nobility which she possesses. That is why once I said to you, when you are in trouble share not with anybody except your spiritual teacher. Because with anybody if you share the secret, it will be exploited against you, it maybe your weakness. Noble woman doesn't give her weakness to anybody, she conquers the weakness herself. Nobility conquers duality.

Therefore it is very obligatory to understand, that it is called self-talking process. You must talk to yourself, you have to. It is obligatory that you must know yourself and you must talk to yourself and you must talk to yourself to the extent that you must love yourself and you must love yourself and you must have a very high esteem of yourself. And you must know that can you (?) all this with one sentence, 'who's student you are.' You should just remember that you are the student of 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.

You must remember.

SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. , SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. will give you satya. Satya means the spiritual power. It will give you a parameter, a convincible, evincible situation of your own radiance, which will make you satyavati, the one who possesses that flow of the spirit of the truth.

You must understand happiness will never come to you because of money. People who are rich are not happy, people who have power are not happy. People are happy those who live in their own truth. That is the secret of happiness. Happiness is a virtue, it's a byproduct, it is a offshoot of truth. You must be so happy, so confirmed in happiness, so much entrenched in happiness that death will come to you just as a happy. You must be born happy, you must confirm with yourself always to live happy and then you must die happy.

In this country, you people have been raised as children for ego. If your ego gets way, you feel happy. When ego gets stuck, you feel very sad and unhappy. Actually, when ego get stuck, you should be very happy to see how you can solve the tangle. That is where your self starts. Ego is a challenge, because ego is limiting, it is belittlement of the self. In Trinity is the source of Godhood and it must come to you when you know who you are. And you can never know who you are, if your ego always flow the way, it'll give you the way. Only you know who you are, then ego is challenged.

Frustration, depression, these are all the means of ego. Argument, reason, discussion, yelling, screaming, all this is very egocentric, ego motivated with expressions and do not belong to woman, they all belong to man.

(Students laugh)

Do you know that? Woman who speaks under values herself. If somebody comes and tell you, "(?)."

And you look at it, you say, "Hmmm, would you like to have a glass of water?"

(Students laugh)

See how flat that person goes.

(Students laugh)

It is not the criteria of woman to relate in everything she hears. It is not the criteria of woman to speak everything that she feels. Woman is self-contained unit. That is why God has blessed this machine to produce another human being. That's why she can conceive. Woman should hear, see and understand everything and should conceive everything like that of the seed of another being. And then shell it out, sprout it, feed it and then use it the way she feels in confirmation to her nature, she will never land into wrong consequences.

When a woman projects and draw attention, she endangers herself. Showy women, talkative, talkative women, gossiping women, these are all low quality women. You know what you call them? Have you seen a car, old, low riding car, with a Ford engine and Chevrolet body?

(Students laugh)

And something else as steering and you know, some junkyard put it together. But if it has a license number and it runs, you will call it a car. That is the exact definition of a woman, who does not behave in the required standard. As there is a standard for a vehicle, there's a standard for a woman. Remember this, woman is a woman, nothing else and nothing else can replace it. If you ever want to replace yourself with anything else, you are committing a fault and it will bring you difficulties, trouble and lot of tragedy.

The dangerous point between man and a woman is, if woman will grieve the tragedy, she will breed and multiply it and she will live with that. Whereas man will only grieve a tragedy, will face it and live with it and will change to the next. It is very impossible for a woman to live with one tragedy. Because once you have started living in one tragedy, you'll multiply. Therefore it is very obligatory for you to confirm yourself with yourself all the time. Self-convincing, self-convincing is thy art a woman. You must convince yourself that you are right and the surroundings are right, what you have heard, what you have seen is right. Therefore you are supposed to be a born judge of time and?

Students: Space.

YB: Running around for thirty-two Baskin & Robins and sneaking out this and sneaking out that. No sneakish value or sneakish behavior suits a woman. Anything which is ungraceful is sneakish.

You must be straight. Because no woman can be happy who is a puppet. It's not her nature, it, it does not suit her environments. That is why I say to you that you are first married to DharmaDharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. and it is the will of the God. If a woman is married to DharmaDharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. and will of the God and everything comes next to it, she will be happy. Otherwise, she's married to 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 the whole world maybe in the palm of her hand and she'll be unhappy.

Don't convince yourself that you can get away with this; you can get away with that. You don't change your standard, don't change your mood and model. If you have adapted, remember, if you have adapted a path and you are convinced that you are a woman, just walk all the way unto Infinity of God. Don't bargain on the way, you'll be exploited, you'll be used and you'll be sorry.

If you check up the history of every woman who has suffered, only that woman has suffered who has no trust for herself. It is extremely essential for the body of the woman to honor her words. Giving is the quality of God and the woman. But before you promise to give, you must know what you are giving. That again means, you must confirm with yourself.

Self-communication is the very way a woman can live. Self-communication will give you self-knowledge, self-knowledge will give you dignity and dignity will give you Divinity and Divinity will give you the experience of nobility and then you'll be nothing but living God.

A woman who tries to live very cheap with cheap technologies, by skipping, by exploiting, by being mean, by being angry, by yelling, screaming, all these men quality, these are all men's quality. Man by nature has all these qualities, because man in nature wants to survive. Woman has to sprout, so, she must be calm, quiet like a land. You know land is land. Some land you can grow grass, some land you can grow vegetables, some land this and that, but land doesn't move, it, it is there. It is very nurtured, nursed land. Exactly, the same law of nature applies to woman, she is, she is. She's always she. She's such a she that she gives birth to?

Student: He.

YB: He. Perfect.

And from she the he can be born. SHE, cut down the S, what remains?

Students: He.

YB: Even in she, he's contained; in female, male is contained; in woman, man is contained, what else you want? Even in your married life, if you cannot contain the man in you, you are a failure. And you cannot contain the man if you do not negotiate with yourself all the time. You got to confirm, you got to know, you got to talk to yourself, you have to understand. Because a man will show the left and hit the right. Why so? Do you think every man is a liar? No, not that. Because man is a sensitive seeder, he must find a space to seed, that is his nature. God made that way. So, he has to find a space where he can seed on a time. So, being a seeder, he has to feel the vibrations. So, he always shows left to see the right and always show the right to see the left. So, in other words, man by nature is left and right. But you have to draw the diagonal to make the block into two times, so that you can live happily. When a woman falls, the generation falls; when a man falls, a individual falls.

I would like to discuss with you also certain natures of woman. 'Why woman believes in deceit, why woman uses (?) to communicate, why woman is not direct and use the sign language.' All this comes from fear.

But I will like to be excused today and I'll be with you tomorrow. I think I cannot be with you for longer than this. But hopefully, we'll cover up those subjects tomorrow, because once I get into those subject, it's a long way and then you'll mess up your adrenal.

So, what time is now?

Students: Five-twenty.

YB: Five-twenty. So, it is all right. You can ask me certain question if this, these question have brought up in you some ideas, so that we can share also, we can participate and know.

Yes, Krishna.

Krishna: (------)

YB: Yeah, man in polarity with a woman when communicates, he wants to know where to rest, where to dive, what to believe. So, he's to start with he's inquisitive. So, sometime you will see men saying, 'Oh, look, you look very beautiful and very fresh.'

He maybe asking you to go and he had left somewhere his suitcase, go and bring it.

(Students laugh)

You know what I mean? Don't misunderstand when he says, 'you are beautiful and you look very fresh.' And he's going to take you right away to dinner. You know what I am saying? And don't blame a man. 'Oh you, you told me I am beautiful and fresh, what you are talking?'

It is his nature to see how, how the cookie, what the cookie crumble?

Students: Crumbling.

(Students 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 laugh)

YB: That is a, that's a common new phrase, I, I met a girl and with every sentence she will say, 'This is how the cookie crumble.'

(Students laugh)

And I said, God, she's just crumbling cookies all the time.

(Students laugh)

So, man by nature is inquisitive to know how the cookie?

Students: Crumble.

YB: So, don't take his first impression and first communication with you as a understanding. Just wait and communicate with yourself, what is coming next till it completes and then you have a foundation to communicate. Otherwise you are laying right direct into a trap, which is no good.

Yes dear.

Student: How do you know when to (?) with a man (?)?

YB: It is very simple thing. When a man tells you something, you ask him, 'Is it according to the DharmaDharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. ?' Fight starts right there.

(Students laugh)

A woman is not supposed to wage a war. Simply she has to turn the energy out.

Somebody say, "All right, tonight we'll do this and then we'll do this and we do this and doesn't matter we sleep or not."

You just ask him, "Fantastic, but what about the 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. ?"

He say, "What 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. ?"

You say, "Well my dear 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. ."

Just remind him. Whole program you can just null and void. When he talks whole night, just tell him, "What about 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. ?"

There's nothing to think. And then see how he turns around, he say, "All right, we'll go straight to 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. ."

Say, "Are you sure?"

Men are real sneakish babies, if you really want to know their nature.

(Students laugh)

It doesn't matter, right from Jesus Christ to 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. .

(Students laugh)

Be truthful. Their nature is very direct. They shall live by the nature, because no man in the body of a man is over and above God. And God created the nature and the power. Those who overcome it, those who be something divine, God realized and everything, but still basic nature is the basic nature. And woman must act as a reminder to the truth.

Yeah.

Student: How does a woman balance doing SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. , as a giver and doing SimranSimran A deep meditative process in which the naam of the Infinite is remembered and dwelled in without conscious effort. , to communicate (?)?

YB: SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. is very misunderstood. SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. is when you have and you can give. It is not SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. , when you have nothing and you want to give. I do not know what kind of SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. is that. That is called pushing too much. SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. is; SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. is to earn first and then share, that is SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. . Exploitation and get exploited is not SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. . I did SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. to the men, I charged them one hundred and eight dollars.

(Students laugh)

And taught them a course, which was worth a million dollars. It was a SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. . And they all understood; they valued it. Because you do not throw beauty before a beast, it's no use. Why to waste knowledge, let them earn, let them prepare themself. And then give them far more than they expect, that's called SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. . SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. is also, where our generation, our nature, like a GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. , coming and serving a GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. , 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. 's house is a SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. . That is SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. , service. Where you are forced by environments and circumstances is selflessness and experience that is SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. . Where you do something to show, show off or communicate that you show off is not SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. .

Student: What is the difference between communicating with the self and communicating with God? (?) communicate with God?

YB: Communicating with yourself is, when you are trying to know between you and self what the environment of time and space are establishing in relationship. Communicating with God is, when you are trying to establish the relationship between you and Infinity. Communicating with everybody else is when you are communicating to (?) peace, harmony and understanding. You understand?

Student: Ah, (?) and what (?) to (?)?

YB: It is very unfortunate to note. The very fact that past is past and let it be a past. To pull the past and bring it to future is the tragedy which lot of people do, because of insecurity. 3HO way of life has one beauty. It gives you ultimate security unto Infinity. Therefore, when you belong to... That's why some people do not belong to 3HO, though they wear white and they are here and all that. They do not let the insecurity go. Can you show me in nine years, anybody, who has been let down by 3HO organization as a whole. Anyone, single example. We have incurred losses, but we have not let anybody fall down when it comes to principle. So, therefore, when you belong to a, such a environments and way of life, whether, whether you are rich and poor, healthy or unhealthy, great or small, you shall be taken care of. So, don't lean on past. To free yourself, easiest way to free yourself is, don't lean on past and don't pull past and bring it before you. Then it is very heavy to let the past go. You will be doing a noble act for yourself, if you let the past be the past. But, let bygone.

Students: Be bygone.

YB: Total western thing to learn.

Yes.

Student: Could you explain what you (?) a woman (?)?

YB: Two twines, two twines is a sign of good luck in astrology. And when a square is cut diagonally, it makes two triangles. Square is considered a block on the way of life and prosperity. Go through it.

Student: (------)

YB: Yeah.

Student: (------)

YB: Sure, because you are the judge.

(Students laugh)

Moment you talk about time and space, she's going to judge you and moment she will going to judge you, she's going to find the man's difficulty. I know that is why I made the price of that book very heavy, so, you may not buy it. But you have bought it, read it?

(Students laugh)

Student: (?) I read it.

YB: Moment you play with a woman about time and space, you are giving her a time to judge. And moment she judges you, forget it, she's like God.

(Students laugh)

So, don't tell her about time and space, what is time, what is space, just tell her goodies.

(Students laugh)

It doesn't mean when I teach men I forget about women and when I teach women I forget about men. I try to separate both, because they both have a definite knowledge to learn.

Yes dear.

Student: You said that woman should not (?), she should also confirm and (?).

YB: Yes, she should self-communicate what she hears, what she sees and what she knows, and then proceed. In other words she has to give a buffer time they call it. She cannot act with a impulse. She can fall into a trap. And no woman can afford it.

Student: How could a woman (?) when convincing (?)?

YB: No, in case of doubt you can go through the teachings. You have to have some philosophical (?). And then when you have a doubt, relate to DharmaDharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. , 'does it fit in the canons of DharmaDharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. or not?' Always you'll come through.

Yes.

Student: You were just talking about sharing our problems with spiritual teacher. (?) we consider our husband (?)?

YB: No, husbands are never spiritual teacher. My wife will tell me something, I'll not like to answer her. I'll tell her, 'Ask 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. Singh.'

(Students laugh)

Hmmm, hmmm, husband is not a spiritual teacher, though he maybe a spiritual teacher of the area. Husband is husband to begin with and husband in end. And some husbands are not elevated that they become teacher one time and husband other time. If you want to test your husband who's a teacher, tell him something very weird and see how he reacts.

(Students laugh)

That will prove the point right on the spot. Spiritual teacher is a deep ingrown sensitivity above time and space. His problem is to solve the knot and guide the person. He's not interested in the person; he's interested in the problem of the person. Therefore there's no exploitation. With the husband there is a threat of security and insecurity, you can't share the problem. It takes one telephone call after five o'clock; it'll take very little time.

Yes.

Student: (?) one thing I felt very bad about myself is that I am unable to do all the things that were (?) to do everyday, (?)?

YB: That is the one of the luckiest thing, at least you feel guilty of not doing something.

(Students laugh)

Think of those who don't feel guilty at all and sleeping.

(Student laughs)

That is awakened stage. It is called awakened stage. When you know you have to do lot and you fail to do lot, at least something reminds you and that is awakened stage. But there are people, they call sleeping stage. First form of the stage of (?), normally people are in dream stage, they hallucinate. When they are in sleep stage, they don't consider anything, then they are in awakened stage and then called the effective stage. Effective stage is that, when you actually know and act at the same time. Active stage and effective stage are the two most beautiful mental stages for any woman to live in.

Your all questions are answered now?

Yes.

Student: Sir, (?) grace of God meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. (?)?

YB: Grace of God meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. will give you self-effectiveness. It is designed that way. And any woman who will do it, will find grace in herself. It may take a little time, longer in one case, shorter in other, but surely it is going to be the positive.

I remember one person was in 3HO and she left the 3HO and she got into drinking and boozing and finally she became junky. And this burnt about eighty thousand dollars, in all the scrap in year and a half. And one day she was going to inject and she looked at the stuff and looked at the thing, it is all her confession. And she said, "I have become junky. I used to be 3HO and take people junkies out of it and now I am in it, I won't do it."

And she never did it. She admitted to me that she has done nothing, except at the moment when she was in that trouble she lied down and started doing, 'Sa, Ta, Na, Ma.' And she knew it and she used it and she got out of it.

Knowledge never goes waste. Only it can be dormant when you don't use it. But when you use it, it is yours.

Yes.

Student: (------)

Side B

"There´s a lot of words. You know we are very fortunate to have Jasbeer Kaur Bibi now with us. She knows a lot of GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. .

And I think we should try to see whether she is interested in us and we are interested in her. And that is the part I think she should play, to pick up all the words and share with you the GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. . Because that will give you lot of strength. Jasbeer is there anything in which nobility is expressed in GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. through any SutraSutra Section from scripture. ? Why don't you check it out and give out the information.

Yes dear. Yeah, how, how do you feel?

Student: (------)

YB: So, so.

Student: (------)

YB: Good.

(Students laugh)

It is; it is better than the worst, hmmm.

Student: (------)

YB: I am going to discuss all the twelve signs. Just to create interest I hit the three.

(Students laugh)

This course is going to be very interesting, I'll tell you that. I am very calm and quiet, Kamal Jeet is getting married on the twelfth of July, I have no more responsibility.

(Students laugh)

I have done my job and I am through with all nonsense. That was one responsibility in my life I promised that I will marry that girl. And as a oriental father, it was a very deep responsibility, which I carry. And now God has laid down the path and if it happens it is His will. And once it happens, I'll be very, very free. I have nothing to work for, except 3HO which requires a quarter million dollars to keep going.

(Students laugh)

And most beautiful thing which is happening is we are shedding the skin. All the deadwood is going to go. 3HO is going to be very solid, in thing, very, very honest, very solid and very growing. It is a real healthy, happy and holy situation. Because through the time and space, we also have to prove that we believe what we say. So, it's going to be all right.

I am going to explain to you the zodiac, the interlocks and the Sun and the rising and whole thing. It's not, I am not going to (?) just on two-three sign. I just said those just to, because they are very prominent. Gemini's are six in one, Sagittarius is hit the back and Capricorn is I don't believe, though I know.

(Students laugh)

So, you know what I mean?

Yes.

Student: Could you please explain why a woman wears KaraKara Steel bracelet; one of the Five K's worn by baptized Sikhs. on the left hand?

YB: KaraKara Steel bracelet; one of the Five K's worn by baptized Sikhs. , the steel on the left of the woman and right of the man, gives you the freedom from the black tantric. That is how this is. Until you are reverse in your energy, you are left-hander or you are right-hander. That is how. KaraKara Steel bracelet; one of the Five K's worn by baptized Sikhs. is the symbol of freedom from any mental influence by any other person through his mind.

Student: I am left handed, should I wear steel on the left hand (?)?

YB: I think if you are a left handed, you should wear on the right. (?) it is a simple science, it has, listen, let us not do things ritualistically. They, they won't do any good. Learn it as a science and go by the science. And that's the way it is.

Student: Ah, are there any kinds of, like noble procedures, noble acts, any kinds of Shabads, Tantric,

YB: We are going to talk almost whole year.

Student: Kind of chanting (?) do for a wedding, that we don't know about yet, because then we can (?) Kamal Jeet Kaur's wedding.

(Students laugh)

YB: Yeah, you can discuss with Kamal Jeet.

(Students laugh)

I think, I think she's pretty noble that she's going through it very peacefully. That makes her very darling. And she understands. Because I am very happy with that girl, I would not have been very happy. She brought me a card, there was staircases and there was a little, little cat trying to jump and it says in very block letters, 'confidence is taking the first step.'

Student: 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. .

YB: And she brought it and bought it and gave it to me. And that shows deep in my mind and heart, it is God's will. And girl is also ready and prepared in her mind. And what a fortunate father more can ask? Boy is young, beautiful, simple, not crude at all and girl is very young and innocent. And now they will rough themself together and find a, some alliance. And it is very virtuous as far as I am concerned, because it was my responsibility to see that she's married. And God has been very merciful for my weaknesses; I might not have been in a position to find out a good family and good boy. He all, all the way walking, so, what more you can ask for?

And I took it that way, as Jetha became 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. .

(Students laugh)

And Jetha won't come, he thought he is shouting too much to sell those wheat berries and he might have disturbed the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. and his meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness.

And he said, "No, no, you can punish me, you can slap me, you can do anything, don't take me before the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. ."

She said, "Yes, I told you like this."

He said, "But when it's like this and this is it, there's nothing equal more than that."

(Students laugh)

And she said, "Are you going to marry my daughter with this?"

(Students laugh)

He said, "Yes. You said it, you have it (?). You asked for it, (?)."

(Students laugh)

"You pointed out, you said that is the boy, here it is and that's it."

So, before that anything goes weird and you may hear any news, it was better that Kamaljeet should go to her house. So, God is very kind and merciful to even people like, idiot people like me, who just pretend to have faith. You know there's no big deal, because that is His Infinity. Even those who pretend to have faith. Those who fake it, make it, that's what I always say.

The difference between SwamiSwami Master. Trauma and SwamiSwami Master. Rama is SwamiSwami Master. Rama in the worst situation will fake it that he's a SwamiSwami Master. Rama and SwamiSwami Master. Trauma will fake it he's SwamiSwami Master. Trauma. You understand?

So, my dear folks, time and space always need to be tested. And communication with self must be there to confirm who you are before you take a step.

Thank you very much for this evening. I am just getting real itch, which is quite a big problem. But I think I'll be all right. And wish you happy Fourth of July and independence. It tells you not only be a member of a independent country, but you have to give independence to your soul. And DharmaDharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. is the path to cut down the KarmaKarma The law of cause and effect applied to mental, moral, and physical actions. Ego attaches us to and identifies us with objects, feelings, and thoughts. These attachments create a bias toward certain lines of action. Instead of acting you begin reacting. Karmas are the conditions required in order to balance or complete these tendencies. Though necessary, karma is not dictatorial or fatalistic. It is the mechanism that allows the finite experience of existence to maintain and stabilize itself. We all have free will and can take actions to re-direct the momentum of a karma. We can transform it or neutralize it using meditation, jappa, good deeds, or intuition that remove your sense of ego and the identification with that past line of action. , the blocks of life, to go ahead, to merge from where you came.
