... I have removed the drag on life and we can go along. Some of you telling me that is a essential way of life. I want to tell you that's not our way of life. Twenty million young people like you revolted in sixties. Nineteen million lost their life to bring an evolution, one million survived, out of those one million came 3HO, out of 3HO came 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. , out of 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. came Panth KhalsaPanth Khalsa The ordained Ministry of Sikh Dharma; also refers to the general body of the Khalsa worldwide. . That is twenty-five years history. There is nothing to it. Now watch this, we stand as a symbol in United States of a Woodstock Nation. And we are not going to give up our values and we are not stupid. We are not asking you to misunderstand us. Our pain is to let you know, you are on the wrong side of the fence.

I have been told if I'll enforce my way, majority of you will leave. I'll welcome that. And if you want to go the drug way I'll request you to leave, because then we have no worry of defending ourself. That's a honest truth. Because United States does not tolerate drugs. United States has a national problem with drugs. All of you sitting here right now, you have twenty-nine thousand dollars debt on you. It's a national debt. And sixty percent of the drugs we consume, we cannot afford this country very long. We are loved being small in number because for twenty-five years we have stood socially, culturally, personally on spiritual strength. Not on monetary strength.

Our strength is we are rich because we have a character, because we have a commitment, because we are clean, because we are free, because we are trusted. How we could create in twenty-five years this? Because we stuck to basic principles. And our basic principle is I live by spirit, I deal with the spirit, I see the spirit in all. That's what spirituality means to us. Not this nonsense that you take drugs and hypocrite and tell on my face, I am perfect yours and you go there and do everything, which I don't stand for. We won America with our character, we won America with our strength, we won America because we stood as Americans in the face of everything. Many of us have sacrificed.

We believe in America, we believe in our strength, we believe in our family, and we believe in our future and we are not going to change. We have now a proven record of twenty-five years. From where we got this strength, which American couldn't get? We started practicing KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. Kundalini Yoga It is a Raaj Yoga that creates vitality in the body, balance in the mind, and openness to the spirit. It is used by the householder, busy in the world, to create immediate clarity. The fourth Guru in the Sikh tradition, Guru Ram Das, was acknowledged as the greatest Raaj Yogi. (See Raaj Yogi.) He opened this long secret tradition to all.

The fourth Guru in the Sikh tradition, Guru Ram Das, was acknowledged as the greatest Raaj Yogi. (See Raaj Yogi.) He opened this long secret tradition to all. . That awakened our soul. We did hours and hours of 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. . It's not that we were not wrong. I am not denying it to you. You are not even that much (?) and I used to see and many were of that were your parents. But we stood for those values when America used to think, 'oh what he is talking about! What he is talking about!' Today those things are true, what we were talking about. Today they want us to come and teach them. Today we don't go to them. At that time we were willing to go and say well, let us teach in the prisons. (?) anywhere you want us, we have something to teach, they say, "No." Today they ask to teach, we don't have time.

And tomorrow if you will be the spiritual people and spiritual teachers world will bow to you. The conflict is you are exploiting this opportunity for the negative purposes. Girls feel they can do fashion... what you can get? What is that you get married? You can be divorced tomorrow. What is that you had a sex? You can be broken heart tomorrow. What is you have a drug and become high? You can be depressed tomorrow. This path, which some of you are adapting is a path of sorrow and with no good tomorrow, we know it from last twenty-five years. We are not going to buy into it now. That's why we are running camps, that's why we are asking you to come because we want to share with you. Is that understood?

You should understand our pain where we are coming from. We understand your pain that you are a gang and you are gangsters. And because you don't have spiritual security and spiritual strength therefore you are together, your friends are very important to you. So in LA gangs wherever. So in Albuquerque the gang. They asked me one question, "If we separate, where we will go?" You can ask the same question, "If we don't have each other where we will go?" Answer is you have to go inside you, talk to your soul. And if you think that you have disappointed us it is not true. Disappointment of ours come with the territory. 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 was a Mukhiya Singh Sahib here, when the situation became so ugly and so dirty and he was doing something, which was against 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. , I came here and he said, "I want to negotiate with you."

I said, "There is nothing to negotiate, what do you want to negotiate with?"

He said, "If I leave seven couples will leave. How you are going to survive?"

I said, "Could you leave it before noon today, check time is twelve o' clock."

We have survived, he has not. And neither those seven couples have survived. In Washington DC when I found what Larry was doing, I called him myself. I said, "Tomorrow is Saturday, courts are closed, pick up yourself and be gone. I don't want to come after you. I want to forgive and forget, game is over."

If you want to be Mr. Jack and Hide and yoyo, you are developing a habit, which is going to catch up with you. Just remember, "Action has a reaction equal and opposite, 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. catches up, doesn't matter who one is." Look at me I am 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. , I know everything, I can teach everything, I have been seven years from one hospital to another hospital. Why? I overworked. It caught up with me. It didn't bother me eighteen years, I went on and on, one plane to another, one place to another, bah bah bah after that... just remember if you do not have your spirit with you and you do not have mind under your control, everything else you have will not survive. It's law of interplanted destruction. What they call it? Law of?

Students: (----)

YB: Interplantation of... we inplant our own destruction because we want to construct that's fine. Also we inplant our destruction. And it is inplant of destruction what is called depression. I know you want to take some of you want to take drugs. I tell you what drugs do. They give you a stimulation for the moment and it is a bonding thing. I have seen people who have... There was a man Sikh man from India, he was a general manager of the railways. He used to be my guest. He talked to me from eleven clock to four o' clock and four o' clock he said, "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. , now I have to go."

I said, "I bless you."

He will go to friend's house and will drink there where he could get the drinks. And in evening he will do his prayers. It was shocking. And in night he will do his prayers and he will sleep. I once asked him, I said, "Why this weakness?"

He said, "You want to know something truthfully?"

I said, "Sure, I like to know truth."

He said, "I don't like myself and I can't stand myself. I feel I am a very cursed man."

I said, "Why you are coming to see me then everyday? We talk spirituality."

He said, "I am finding my way, if my sense has come back to me."

I said, "Fine." And we were having lunch one day and he said, "You know, can you teach me 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. ?"

I said, "Well we have eaten, after a while."

At about 3 o' clock I asked him to if he wants to do 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. . He satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. in 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. four o' clock, five o' clock, six o' clock, seven o' clock, he woke up. His soul got awakened, he lived thereafter fifteen years, he never had a trouble. You are your own enemies if you don't conquer yourself. You are your own enemy and you are very alone if you have no friendship with your soul. That's very important. And once you... you know you should understand one thing, you take a milk, you take about say six-eight pastures, even ten pastures of grass to take a one-ton of milk. And it takes about New Jersey cows let us say ten or eleven whatever. It takes one drop of citrus to split it.

Your life can be comfortable it takes one action to ruin your reputation. One. You will say ninety-nine actions are right. No. That's not the nature works. Ninety-nine actions are right, one action is wrong, you are wrong. You understand? Do you all have that much control? Isn't a sad thing in life? Life is very cruel. You are entering life as adults now. Let us do a 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. today to open ourself if that can work and if that can work for you alone. We are looking forward to that situation where people will carry this, this mode and the operandis of life, the style of life and I don't think right now we are on a recruiting mode. But we are willing to prepare ourself for the things to come. And I want to test you out how you are.

Could you sit in a straight posture with your spine straight? Now this is called union. Put your left hand and put your right hand over and stretch it straight. That's all you have to do. Come on. And you close your eyes and concentrate on your chin, I say nothing. I am not going to say anything to you and you go through it, this nightmare yourself. Let there be no bent in any elbow. That's one requirement and let your union be complete and let you stretch out and close your eyes and roll your eyeballs to look at the chin.

We have all the tools not to be fools. In exact one minute and a half your body will start paining, and you will start losing the control. But just remember we can go seven minutes or eleven minutes, that's all we are going to do. And tell me if you don't have a posture for seven or eleven minutes what you have? This is union, your left IdaIda One of the three major channels (nadis) for subtle energy in the body. It is associated with the flow of breath through the left nostril, follows down the left side of the spine, and represents the qualities of the moon - calmness, receptivity, coolness, and imagination. It is associated with the functions of the parasympathetic nervous system but is not identical to it nor derived from it. Also see Pingala and Shushmana and PingalaPingala One of the three major channels (nadis) for subtle energy in the body. It is associated with the flow of breath through the right nostril, follows down the right side of the spine, and represents the qualities of the sun - energy, heat, action, and projective power. It is associated with the functions of the sympathetic nervous system but is not identical to it or derived from it. See also Ida and Shushmana. right, are meeting in front of you. No man without endurance can have commitment, no commitment, no character, rest doesn't matter. What we built in people in sixties is endurance. We gave them the methodology of alternative endurance so they can survive. We were on drugs then, we can be on drugs now. The drugs never solve the problem. You have to be growing to be you. See how you are. Now you will be not in a position to hold your posture, now you have to hold your posture with whole strength.

You have done for exactly three minutes only. Is that enough or you want to continue? Hold, then hold. What this will do? This will affect your layers of the neurons and it will make left and right parts of the brain equally active. And when there will be a pain, body will be hurting, then brain will create its own kind of morphine to pacify the pain. So those who can conquer pain can conquer being insane. That's as simple as that is. My only interest is that tomorrow you grow as leaders, mediocres we have many. You have done it for five minutes. Hold your posture for two more minutes, I let you go. Stretch out and stand bright. You need that strength. If you cannot face outside pressure, you cannot face inside. And if you can't face inside, you can't progress in life. Now for the next two minutes it will force you to breathe differently. You have to rely on your breath now. Stretch your elbows, don't worry, don't cry, in army they do it for hours and hours and hours. There you do it, if you don't do it, they come and hit you hard. Hey, you fellow, dah dah dah, here you have to hit yourself hard to go dah dah dah.

Counseling does not give you strength. Wealth will not give you strength. Even good food doesn't give you strength. Strength you have to develop inside you. Now you will breathe long deep, to help you otherwise you won't hold this last minute. Stretch out hard and say, God is with you and keep going. You have forty-five seconds to go. Make this forty-five seconds as perfect as you want. It will help you a lot, these forty-five seconds can give you more than all the... this time you are coming to the very strength of it. Now you have thirty seconds only left. You have fifteen seconds left. Stretch out your arms be great, try your luck, stand by, inhale deep, hold the breath, inhale more, hold the breath, stretch out, tight, lock your back molars, stretch out, breathe out, inhale deep again, deep, hold tight, breathe out, inhale, stretch and squeeze every part of your body, squeeze hard, lock your molars and really go. Relax.

This is one exercise, which you have to do for eleven minutes three times. It has no other KriyaKriya Literal meaning is "completed action." A Kundalini Yoga Kriya is a sequence of postures and yoga techniques used to produce a particular impact on the psyche, body, or self. The structure of each kriya has been designed to generate, organize, and deliver a particular state or change of state, thereby completing a cycle of effect. These effects have been codified and elaborated by Yogi Bhajan and form the basic tools used in yoga and its therapeutic applications. unfortunately. This balances the east and west. It balances the two hemispheres of the brain. And when you squeeze and hold the breath, it stimulates the blood so much that all the dead neurons, which are not in the position to give signals for which you feel very yucky. It eliminates that. You understand that? Life is a mutual balanced living, life is?

Students: Mutual balanced living.

YB: I live with you, you live with me and always it will be the same. Moment you will not be mutual there will be no harmony when there will be (no) harmony, there will be fight. When there will be fight, it will end up in separation. Word mutual is as important as life is. And what is mutual? Come on.

Student: (----)

YB: Not two. Mutuality is trinity. Yes, what you said dear? Loud, loud say it. Sharing is mutual. Come on what else?

Student: (----)

YB: Come on guys, you have to face life tomorrow. I have done it. But keep talking. These are all high ideals. That's not mutual. Mutual I, you and us is called mutual. There are always three things, object, subject, and common cause. Hello, the whole society is based on one thing, mutual. One is object, other is subject, other is common cause, common goal, so long you must not understand I and I don't understand you, I and you do not understand we, we is the common cause. I, you and us. You understand? It cannot be you only and it cannot be they only. Now you understand common cause, now you understand what is mutual. Repeat it.

Students: (----)

YB: Ah, 3HO you added. Now say it, I, you, and we. I is me that's object. You is the subject, and us is the common cause, we is the common cause. That's how it is. Understand? That is life. Life is a lie, life is a?

Students: Lie.

YB: If you have not found the mutual cause of life. Yes?

Student: (----)

YB: Your intuition, that's what KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. Kundalini Yoga It is a Raaj Yoga that creates vitality in the body, balance in the mind, and openness to the spirit. It is used by the householder, busy in the world, to create immediate clarity. The fourth Guru in the Sikh tradition, Guru Ram Das, was acknowledged as the greatest Raaj Yogi. (See Raaj Yogi.) He opened this long secret tradition to all.

You want to be a leader, you have to lead, you have to have intuition, you have to give value, you have to give courage, you have to carry people. You, your intuition. Here the third eye, the front lobe has to be developed. You have to develop two things in your whole body. Front lobe and upper palate. When we develop upper palate, your words will have effect, impact and they go right into heart. If this is there, you always know, you can read in between the line you can understand. You will be fast, you will be sharp, you will be one step ahead. You give it to yourself. I am only a tool; I can only give you method. I can't give you anything, I gave it to myself, I experienced. You give it to yourself. Because you have to walk. In the beginning it's you, in the middle it's you, in the end is you. There is nothing but you. Okay I love you and you love me very much, let's put it this way and I say, "Meet me nine o' clock, we are going to do this."

You say, "Fine, nine o' clock." We made agreement, right? And next morning nine o' clock you can't even get up. So what? You don't have you.

Student: (----)

YB: If you get up, you will be there. If you don't, you can't be. So if you have you with you, you will make it, if you don't have you with you, you won't. The most important thing in your life is you. Not being friends, not being gangs, not being everything, not using drugs, not bullshitting each other and not lying to each other, exploiting, nothing is important in this life, everything is insecure if you don't have you. Have you seen that one movie I saw, he prepared dinner, candlelight everything and then they both started drinking and after few drinks he was gone, and she said, "I came here for a good sex."

He said, "What? Who are you?"

Because he didn't have himself. You are living in a drama, it's a drama. This is the time for you teenagers or adults to have you and walk in life. You want to walk in life with a talk of life that won't pay. You won't make it, we know it. One day or another day you will just fall because you don't have you. It's nobody's fault. Just remember, blaming others and claiming others and shaming others will not make it. You have to make it because God made you, you have to make yourself. That's why you want to look beautiful. Look pretty, look marvelous, be impressive, two minutes somebody talks to you; he knows you are a idiot. Why all that paraphernalia if you can't hold it. All your relation is, "Don't call me, I'll call you." Why? You lost it.

Side B

You did not put your worth out, you are worthless. You did not put use out, you are useless. Any minute you put yourself less, you are that less and you have to recover it, you have to pay 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. of it. Nobody is to wonder. You understand? That's a car (?) don't worry. They have not brought any money for you. Concentrate. There is nothing more important, there is nothing more useful, there is no nothing to learn, there is no worth to teach and talk, the only thing is do something to find you first within you. And secondly, find you within you and in others. Thirdly, find you in you and in others and lead yourself at the path of sacrifice making the way so other can follow. They will find you, you have found them. And then go for a common cause and that is you find you within you and causing the other yous to follow, when all of you as we reached a stage of satisfaction and that satisfaction is called victory. And that is called path and that's called 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. . You are misleading yourself. Misleading.

Energy is there; you are leading, but going to wrong direction. Instead of you going to you, you are trying to form gangs. Friendships. Wasting your time. You will be lost, you will be gone. You mislead yourself. And you cannot handle yourself, you want to feel high because otherwise you are low, you take drugs. You want to numb yourself from reality, that's what drugs are. Every drug, alcohol these modern hallucigenic and all that, they have only one purpose, when you cannot face yourself. And then you make gangs; it's called friendship, circle of friendship. Nobody wants to drink alone, they all want some people, they invite people. That's a test. Man is a social animal. Drunk have their society the club.

Have you seen advertisement on TV about the drink of wine? Oh my God. Millions and millions of dollars they spend to hook you. Look what the cigarette company have been doing, they are putting chemicals, dope you. Look how much sex is being exploited in this country, because if a household remains as one household, our economy will be one fourth. We need four divorces. We need six million women for call girls are supplied to the salesmen. We lose three million children every year in the United States. And eighty percent rapes happen by intimacy of friendship. These are national figures. What is this? You have friendship and love with John, Smith, Henry, Peter, and David.

You have already gone through six men, five men, and the sixth is going to be perfect for you, where are coming from? And one has gone to twenty girls; his twenty-first girl is going to be Goddess? You can't even concentrate. There is a class going on within the class. You want to read that? Can you both come up, you two, you two. Come on, come on, I will like to show you something how we can concentrate. Come on, come on, come on don't worry this is a... can you tell them what was so important you both were talking? Face the class.

Student: (----)

YB: We know it's not important, that's why I said, but it is very important because you both were talking to each other very importantly. So, maybe something is very special, which they don't know.

Students: (----)

YB: Oh they want to know if you just friends you...

Student: (----)

YB: Yeah, go ahead.

Student: (----)

YB: What was the question?

Student: (----)

YB: What (?) how many men?

Student: (----)

YB: What that means?

Student: (----)

YB: You know everybody has a page; it's called "Book of life." And that many men you go through. But you will never read the end. Because you do not go to you, do not find you, and you go to others where you are going to find you and what others can find in you. But what you lost in that was you came here to learn and you refuse to learn. Yeah, you are learning from me and each other. That is a duality. And that's the problem of this man. He cannot concentrate. You cannot concentrate, you can't vibrate. You can't vibrate you can't effect. You cannot have a effect, you can't have a impact. You can't have effect, you will not have life. The psyche of life is very important. Where are you from? I won't blame you. And what's so wrong with you that you can't concentrate? You say you have (?) I didn't see you (?) you are diversifying this girl. You should have taught her to concentrate. Why don't you do that?

Student: (----)

YB: Yeah.

Student: (----)

YB: Relax, comfort at what cost?

Student: (----)

YB: You caught everywhere you caught but you didn't concentrate so deep enough and you diversify her. And what you do? Come to a class and do that? That's what you have learned? Suppose this girl did not get what she was getting. And something goes wrong to her tomorrow, are you not participant in that? Thank you. At least you have the courage, one courage is to just speak truth and get out of it as fast as possible. Do it again. We will deal with you separately. Go and sit in the class now. The greatest difficulty in human life is that they can't concentrate. Tharna, DhiaanDhiaan , Dhyan See Meditation. , SamadhiSamadhi The state of consciousness in which the mind is free from reacting to thought waves. . These are the three aspects of yoga. Tharna means the longing, constant, consistent, continuous. DhiaanDhiaan , Dhyan See Meditation. means to concentrate, to meditate and to accolade. And SamadhiSamadhi The state of consciousness in which the mind is free from reacting to thought waves. means to become absolute.

A doctor starts, when a doctor becomes expert and then he becomes specialist, same doctor, same person. His rate goes up. There is a word called mischief, you are all supposed to be chief and you miss the subject and the object and totality so that thing is called mischief, there are two words you should learn. Mischief and mistake. What you were supposed to take, you missed it. And you are supposed to be a chief, but you missed it. Your mental mischief is responsible for all of your pain and you don't need that. If you cannot consolidate your mind, cannot control your mind, you have no mind. Your mind will become your enemy, not your friend. And mind obeys no time and no space. You can be physically here but mentally not here. And so long you cannot apply your mind to something you cannot be perfect, you cannot succeed, you cannot be fulfilled. Is that clear?

So if we meet next time we will talk about mind. Mind its three aspects, and eighty-one chambers. And how our mind works. Mind is a mental yoyo, when your soul took the body and came in and asked God, "I am separating from you, how do I reach you back my Lord?"

God gave the mind. And mind has the capacity to take you away from you and bring you to you, you can do it, your mind can do it and if you have your mind under you, all is well. Your mind is not under you, you are not well. I mean you can bullshit me, I caught your every word, I know you, I am bah bah bah. Shame! I was concentrating. Even I was diversified. Diversion is not a reality. And diversion kills the personality and the cost is humongous. You see how I won in America, in Europe and western hemisphere? With all odds I kept my values. Never gave an inch.

We sing that song; we are the Khalsa, mighty, mighty Khalsa, that's for the children. Other song... what we other song we sing, song of the Khalsa, how we start it. Many speak of courage, many speak of courage, many speak like you, I hear them everyday. Speaking cannot, it is in the face of death. We live it, isn't it? Something like that? What's the idea of knowing that song and singing that song when you cannot concentrate. The girl was available, she was sitting next to you, she wants to talk, you want to talk. You should have exerted your leadership telling her concentrate. She would have been grateful to you.

Reminding a friend or elevating a friend is the best friendship and best of love. So when we will meet next we will talk about mind, three minds we have in us. Positive mindPositive Mind One of the three Functional Minds. It elaborates, magnifies, extends, and assists. It asks, "How can this help me? How can I use this? What is the positive side of this?" , negative mindNegative Mind One of the three Functional Minds. It is the fastest and acts to defend you. It asks, "How can this harm me? How can this limit or stop me?"

We have also written you off as you have written us off. And that's a fact. Because this day we kept it for you so you can come and be respected. And if you have come here to learn, you are most welcome. If you have come here to mess up, neither you learn from us nor you learnt for yourself. It's mutual. We love you and you love us.

You cause a cause, I have to respond the effects and we have to suffer or face that effect. That's called 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. . We will discuss it, when we discuss mind, thank you very much and God bless you.
