EXPERIENCE AND ECSTASY

SIDE-A

(?).

Now we are commercial. Wow. We can wear it at night. Open this case. I think, after all this what I have grilled through, this is (?). Oh my God, wow! It's the oldest picture You can keep it here, keep it, just keep it here. Everybody is okay? Feel good? We'll have a fun tonight, don't worry. I know why we become sick. You know the funny part is I thought as 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. , I'll get away from it, but it doesn't work. Never overwork, and never be underworked. Just, just that balance which you need in life.

Student: (----------).

YB: Oh, beautiful, wow, (?). Thank you.

Ah, what do you want tonight? You want philosophy? Oh, no, no, no. We can't teach philosophy now, it's "Experience and Ecstasy", is that true?

Student: Yeah.

YB: Where is Dr. Soram?

Student: He had a previous (?).

YB: Oh, he told you?

You have.... something which I am saying I like to be forgiven for that. It is for the future of the generations and is not meant against anybody's religious belief including mine. But what I am saying is not what my belief says. So, I want to say it anyway.

You have been told for centuries that we are all equal in the eyes of God. It's a damn lie! It's not true. If we are all equal in the eyes of God, then we should have same mind, same body and same strength of our spirit, which is practically not true. We have different bodies, not one person body joins with another person. We have different caliber of mind, or range of mind; there is no two calibers which can be found together that way, and some people have very awakened spirit and some don't. And this is a fact. So where we are equal in the eyes of God? You know, rather God is such a identity he cannot create another God. Look at His misfortune. Otherwise He would have created five, six Gods; they all would have played and cards, and they would have been happy. There is no need of creating the whole universe!

So, God cannot create another God and God cannot create anything which is not in two, never can, could or shall. So there shall be always a duality and there shall be always be a reality. There is a Shakta and ShaktiShakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. , they are intertwined. Without ShaktiShakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. , there is no Shakta and without Shakta, there is no ShaktiShakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. . Without PurkhaPurkha The great Being of existence. , there is no PrakritiPrakriti Transcendental Nature. It is creation as we can experience it. It includes mind and matter. It is formed from the motion and interaction of the gunas. It is multi-leveled and evolved from the original consciousness of the Absolute. ; without PrakritiPrakriti Transcendental Nature. It is creation as we can experience it. It includes mind and matter. It is formed from the motion and interaction of the gunas. It is multi-leveled and evolved from the original consciousness of the Absolute. , there is no PurkhaPurkha The great Being of existence. . Without woman, there is no man; without man, there is no use of a woman. It is a very well-balanced world. It cannot be, "I am your teacher, you are my student; you are my student, I am your teacher."

Without you, I am not a teacher; without me, you are not students. It's a very simple thing. Why I am a teacher? Why not? And why you are student? Why not? Are you my student? No. Am I your teacher? No. Can we exist? Yes. Why? Because tonight those who have to come shall be here and tonight I am supposed to be here, I am here. There is a trinity. Three things works. Not one. I work with you, you work with me and the Unknown works with both of us! The binding factor is Unknown. Call it as Supreme Power, because Buddhist don't believe in Gods, so they get very upset.

I was in the World Parliament Religion, they got very upset.

"God," they say, "What do you mean by God?"

I say, "Well, Supreme Being."

They say, "That's fine."

I said, "What is the difference? Call it anything, there is something Unknown."

Because Buddhists feel that you take the name of God, Judeo-Christian, Hindus, Moslem to everybody. And you guys blame God for everything and keep on doing wrong, therefore you are all dirty stupid! That's how they go. They say you, "You take God as a identity, in the name of God you kill, in the name of God you do this, in the name of God... your God is absolutely unwanted, un-existent, non-wanted."

So take it from there. Technologically, it's very embarrassing for them, but they are very steadfast in their belief. I was very surprised to see how powerfully they spoke before the World Parliament of Religion and really twisted their arm not to use word God, so afterwards every resolution start saying Supreme Being. It doesn't make much difference. God is three letters, generates - G, organizes-O, D-destroys or delivers. So whatever you cannot deliver shall destroy you. Even a woman becomes pregnant, if she cannot deliver the baby, she will be killed! There is no reason. You eat food, you don't go to bathroom for about three days, you will end up in a emergency hospital!

There is no way that you can understand God in the sense and you can deny God in the sense you want to deny. And don't try to be stupid about it. Religion has taught you for five thousand years, nothing but lies. That's what the Buddhist says! And they are a religion themself. So there is no escape for a common man to understand what is right and what is wrong. So try to understand the science of it, don't try to go into the mythology and technology of things. Because that will confuse you. What I believe, I believe; what you believe, you believe; what they believe, they believe. But just understand something. You are not equal in the eyes of God. You have a your constitution, you have your caliber, and you have a vacant soul called 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 this, this nonsense which is going on, everybody can awaken you up, you are not going to be awakened up by anybody; you are going to be awakened up if you want to be. It's the easiest thing on the planet. Don't spend money on religious people and religion, just to get awakened. They can't do it. There is no way that you can go into this methodology and mythology and just understand. Okay, 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 will awaken us. Not at all! Sometime I get up and I have to put a alarm! How can a man who puts a alarm himself is supposed to awaken you? Isn't that ridiculous belief?

It's very funny. I was just at 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. Guru Ram Das Puri Summer Solstice Sadhana Celebration site, in the foothills of the Jemez Mountains, about a half an hour north of the Aashram. Ram DasGuru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. Guru Ram Das Puri Summer Solstice Sadhana Celebration site, in the foothills of the Jemez Mountains, about a half an hour north of the Aashram. PuriGuru Ram Das Puri Summer Solstice Sadhana Celebration site, in the foothills of the Jemez Mountains, about a half an hour north of the Aashram. and two boys were fighting, and I was there. And both didn't know I am Yogiji. They must have seen picture, but at that time I was dressed so casually I, I had my Kirtha, those sheets I wear above, so they didn't know, they see Yogiji always in glamour and then dress and the whole thing. So one he said, "Well, what do you think you are doing?"

He say, "I am protected."

He say, "Who protects you?"

He say, "Yogiji."

He say, "How can Yogiji protect you?"

He say, "How you know he is not?"

"He is at the ranchThe Ranch Yogi Bhajan's home just across the highway from the Aashram, and site of the Yogi Bhajan Memorial Birthday Celebration. down there, fifteen miles from here, twelve miles from here. How can he protect?"

I was just standing on their head. And he said, "Well, he protects me. You know, he has ten bodiesTen Bodies We are all spiritual beings having a human experience. In order to have this experience the spirit takes on 10 bodies or vehicles. They are the Soul Body, the three Mental Bodies (Negative, Positive, and Neutral Minds), the Physical Body, Pranic Body, Arcline Body, Auric Body, Subtle Body, and Radiant Body. Each body has its own quality, function, and realm of action. !"

"So which body is there at the ranchThe Ranch Yogi Bhajan's home just across the highway from the Aashram, and site of the Yogi Bhajan Memorial Birthday Celebration. and which body is here? How you know?"

(Students' laughter)

I look around and I slipped away!

(Students' laughter)

Because I thought their faith is their and theirs experiences is theirs, their anubhav is theirs; who the hell I am to get interfere at this moment. So, I simply walked away. In the evening I called them and I gave them candies and I loved them and hugged them, and they started fighting between each other.

"Didn't I tell you? He protected me."

And, and, it's very funny. You do not understand life. I was, when I was going through my medical and I had to go to the doctors and I had to wear the shorts and shirt. So, normally I go and bow at 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. Guru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. Ram DasGuru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. AshramAshram , Aashram A community of practitioners who come together to live conscious, mindful lives. , it's just a casual of my own self-healing. So one day I came and a little girl of ours, I know her; she is always around the Hacienda de Guru Ram Das , The Ashram The grounds of Yogi Bhajan's traditional home and ranch in Espanola, NM, as well the surrounding businesses, gurdwara and langar hall. AshramHacienda de Guru Ram Das , The Ashram The grounds of Yogi Bhajan's traditional home and ranch in Espanola, NM, as well the surrounding businesses, gurdwara and langar hall. Ashram , Aashram A community of practitioners who come together to live conscious, mindful lives. , she hung to my one leg and she looked at me and I said, "I love you."

She say, "No. When you are going to wear right clothes?"

(Students' laughter)

So, I went home, changed my shirt and short and my tennis shoes and all that and wear my whole thing and put up my jewelry and I came, I said, "Do I look right?"

She said, "That is just right! And that's how you should be."

Now it is a image. As their image of me as a man, as a Yogiji, as 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. is a set image, because they are born with me. Exactly, you are born with your own image with God. And I cannot give you that image. I can give you experience in that image. not impossible. But image as you have to, you think? What is a thought? In one second, how many thoughts you can have? Just understand. In one wink of eye, this shashara, releases one thousand thoughts! Just imagine that. And one thought becomes a feeling. If feeling becomes emotion, emotion becomes a desire, and may be one desire, you do out of the million desires. Just understand. The entire thought form is in your subconscious. You are loaded with it. And then subconscious goes into the unconscious, and you know where your tragedy starts? When the unconscious start loading into 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. . Then you daydream, you night dream, you have nightmares, and you live the most ridiculous life which is undeserving to a human. There is no... nothing wrong with you. It's a overloaded circuit. And you can't get rid of it.

You didn't come here tonight to love me, I come here tonight to love you. You want to know why? One day, I'll be gone. And if I don't leave you happy behind me, you won't do anything what I said. Is it not selfishness? You know what a teacher is? Teacher is who must make a student ten times better. Because he won't survive. His survival is not in manipulating your money and your control and your bodies or your mind or anything. His existence is based on your ten times more strength of endurance, that you can experience something and then you can stand by that experience and you can share that experience. You do not have to share with people anything of yours, but your experience. So, you only can share if you have an experience. Like tonight, you have come here, it's not a big billboard outside that I am going to teach a class. Even I called Yoga center this morning they said, "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 is in town, at 7.45 please, he will teach the class tonight."

That's how it works, right?

Now, what I am going to do? Today class is, "Experience and Ecstasy." Is that true? Accurate? You want it? I want to be warning you that this is a very rough class. It's not a children's joke. Because I am going to teach you this week only two classes and I thought I'll do justice. First, I thought I will teach you Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday night and I'll be on my way. Then I thought, it's too much and Dr. Soram, I think, under protest has not come.

(Students' laughter)

Because my doctors love me so much and they not understand who the hell I am that I don't obey their orders. According to them, I should be only walking couple of blocks and sitting in a chair with my legs raised and look to the sky, which is very difficult for a man who has done sixty-four years nothing but twenty-two hours a day! You know what I mean?

So, are we going to do it now? Right? All right, we will be very quick and fast and get into it. Accurate? So please, this is what?

Student: Left hand.

YB: Left hand. Left hand represents your five elements. Right hand represents your five pranas. So please just balance it. Now, balance is yours. If it is like this, fine with me; if this is fine, I have nothing to do with it. All right? Just balance. You are all very educated and at least you word understand word 'balance.' So balance your both palms, one opening toward the sky, other to the magnetic field of the earth. Little later, everything will be beyond you; so just whatever consciously you can do, just do it. Now, close your eyes, nine parts. Look deeper to the tip of the nose and little deeper, and try to catch the blue line which is called Blue Pearl; in scriptures you will find this, all religious scripts full of it! There is no pearl! This is what they call that pearl. There is no such thing as a pearl! But that blue line, little like horizon... you can look at it!

Now, you live by breath, you die by breath! Make breath twenty seconds to inhale, twenty seconds you hold, and twenty seconds you exhale. You don't need anything from me. You will start getting yourself. Measure by time that you breathe long deep enough to take twenty seconds. Hold it for twenty seconds, so that you can give your blood a oxygen. You need it. That's better than all the vitamins in the world! And exhale by volunteer effort. Normally, you breathe automatically. Now, you are breathing manually. So start breathing manually, then with the automatics. And I'll give you almost three minutes. Within three minutes, you will be more not yourself, then you think you are. But if you cheat, let us give a minute more to that; that's all it will take, if your posture is correct. So, please understand that it's not something which I can do it for you; you have to do it for yourself.

So tentatively, the most important part is the breath. It has to be one minute a breath and you have to take only three in three minutes! Time is set. You are on time, don't change your eyes, look deep down, there where you have to look. Just experience, it's not something you have to ask for. If it's little difficult, try again, try again, try again, try again. Keep on. (??) Nothing gets lost.

Thirty seconds have passed. I am giving you time because I (??). What your self cannot do, cannot be done. Self is given as a gift by the prayer of the Infinity of the Supreme Being which Buddhists call, and we call it God. So, use this self for self-realization, it means experience!

Now, see? You are very good. You have already done for the one minute. Measure your success and failure, not under Judeo-Christian guilt. There is no hell and heaven, you are creating for yourself, if you are guilty or feel bad. Doesn't matter you are wrong, but try to correct as much you can, in the second minute. Whatever is in the Infinity,

"Jo birmindey, soi khandey; jo khanday so birmindey."

Whatever is in the Infinity is within you, what is within you is all over. So, please concentrate. Use your concentration. Bring your attitude to the situation. You have gone one minute and forty-five seconds, you are going to be complete second minute in exact five more seconds, as I am talking. Be careful! Your body may start becoming lethargic, don't let it go out of control.

Now, this is the final minute, please. Keep your balance, keep your balance, keep your balance; steady, be in your control. After this what follows, will be little harsher and harder, and that is concerned with your central nervous system. You are going to hit your parasympathetic nervous system by your own command. therefore, you are just preparing for this. We have fifteen more seconds to go. On the clock, correct.

Keep on breathing at the same vicinity for three seconds and move your navel pointNavel Point The sensitive area of the body near the umbilicus that accumulates and stores life force. It is the reserve energy from this area that initiates the flow of the Kundalini energy from the base of the spine. If the navel area is strong, your vital force and health are also strong. without the help of the breath, in and out. It will move, up to your shoulder you will move. The spinal serum will start touching the three rings, under the stem of the brain and that pressure will change the first ring stem, and that will get into the neurons; third, fourth, fifth layers in the center of the brain. There is nothing to it, it's just to be done exactly the way you can push. If you do not know, at least try. Sometime, layman can do better than expert! Change not your breath. That's the only difficult part of it. Change not your breath. Get your tape ready, "Ang Sang..." Set it up.

Now come on, be good. Otherwise, you have wasted money, time on both hand. Pull, pull, pull, pull. Be in your command. This is one time, you have to be you and you have to be in your own command. Breath exactly on that ratio and move navel without breath. Soon you will start sweating and things will start changing and what we want, we'll achieve! There is no in between agent right now. It is you within you, for you, against you, up you, right you, left you! Come on. You cannot go home and say, "Well, I did it, nothing happened."

Our brain stem has three rings. And the pineal radiations affects the pituitary, from which the entire glandular system is controlled, and glandular secretion is the main way for preparing you for anything. On the other hand, the third ring, the first ring, which is come by the spinal column, at first touch of the serum, also control your caliber of mind. So it gives you a physical control, over your own mind.

Now, you have exactly minute and a half left. Don't, don't live in any falsification of the facts that you have unlimited time, because capacity of the human body is that limited as it should be and within that, you have to use yourself.

Pull, pull, pull. Half-time is up. Half-more time you have to go. And those who are expert, can't pull too much and those who are just new, they have to just try it. Be within the system. Umhu. I just want a little blue color in the 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. and that's all I need. I don't need totally we should be having wings and flying up! Just, just push little bit more. We have half minute more.

Stand by. Get ready. Inhale deep, hold tight, hold tight, hold tight; like a cannon fire, exhale. Inhale deep, little more, hold tight, bring your navel in, spine straight; don't worry about a thing. Just exercise your own self-control. Fire out. Inhale deep, extremely deep, tighten yourself; pull your lower belly area little bit inwards, so that the kidneys... some of you are having a terrible kidney coloration, I don't like it; just get it in.

Now, out. Out, out, out, out, hold out. Hold out tight, and now pull the kidney area in. Stimulated, inhale deep, hold tight; keep the balance and chant. Follow the notes, if you do not know anything.

(The tape "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. ..." is played).

YB (talks over tape): Follow the sound... Let every tongue move... Follow the sound... Your body will go through convulsion, steady your spine please...

(The tape stops, but the students keep chanting).

YB: Keep on chanting. Follow the rhythm. Copy the sound. Stimulate the upper palate... Get ready, "Bountiful, blissful..."

Inhale deep, hold tight, lock your both hands behind your neck, please. Solid. Let neck be in your hands please. Exhale. Now please sing, (??) tongue to touch the upper palate; as the system, it's none of your business whether; what it says it says. It says in English and everything else. Steady.

(The tape, "I am bountiful, blissful and beautiful..." is played).

YB (talks over tape): You all are going to speak from the upper cavity... At your full sound...

(The tape ends).

YB: Inhale deep, extremely deep, hold tight, and please turn towards the right. Twist your spine towards the right. Don't move your base and twist towards the left please, all the way. Come to the center, bend forward and let the breath go. Inhale again deep, right there where you are, rise your body up straight, turn towards the left again, all the way, then switch toward the right, totally twist; bring it into the center, bow down forward and let the breath go. Inhale deep again right there! Aha! Rise your body to the base not moving, turns towards the right now all the way, towards the right. Towards the right, tight, then move toward the left all the way. Tight. Bring into the center, bow forward and with all the force, let the breath go.

Relax. Okay? We have one more 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. to do, you know. Is it okay? Everybody's fine? Now, please stretch your body and relax and bring it to normalcy, so that you can do the second part, okay?

Okay, okay legs. Legs, legs, legs, legs, shoulders du-du-... yeah, yeah.

Well, many of you must understand. Sometime you don't understand those words, we don't want you to understand, there is nothing to it. What we want is, you know, what we want your, you just follow the sound system and just move your tongue accordingly. That's all we need. We need the upper palate to touch the meridian, it will be done. So, I don't have spoons to stick it in your mouths to open it up, you know what I mean? You have to open the mouth and do it. You did a wonderful job! Whenever the arc line of the 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. becomes blue, we have achieved!. We can stop. It's not push beyond point. And some of you are very good. But we have to carry others also along with us, so it does take time.

Now you are all set? Ready? Move your hands, shake your shoulders, get your armpit back and forth,. It's little tough, therefore.... it will be fine, it's not that bad as you think. But we have to do it, what we have to do. Okay? Right? Now. Right? Right? Right? Straight and just look straight. Look straight, right through the wall, right through me, straight. Your optical nerve has to be controlled so that the fourth layer of the neurons' meridian into the hypothalamus we can just control. We are not asking for mercy, we are the manufactured body of God, we have the capacity to realize the Infinity now. That's what we are trying to do and we are structuring ourself to that preparation, so just... That's the beauty of the ShaktiShakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. Yog, you know. Not twenty years later.

Student: (------).

YB: Hm? Same way. As we started, no change. It will start hurting in another fifteen seconds. Because you eat wrong. You know, I just want to be very clear. So that pain is not because of me, that pain is because you, you have your food habits wrong. Because food must come out of the body in twenty-four hours, and any food, anybody has eaten which is going to stick out more than that, is going to right now hurt you. And you are going to hurt here and here. And some of you will start hurting here, that means you have a terrible descending colon. I mean, just, these are meridian points, every Chinese acupuncturist knows and there she sits here, give needles to everybody! But here you have to start suffering right now. And suffer and feel grateful that you are not in a hospital suffering. You are suffering by your voluntary effort. And some of you, yeah, why we call suffering? Controlled suffering is one of the best thing! It's the uncontrolled suffering which mess us up!!

(Students' laughter)

Controlled husband is a blessing. Uncontrolled husband is just hell. And so is the wife. You know what I mean? And so is the children, and so is the car! So everything has to be controlled, right? Now stay controlled. How you like it? Aha. It will just give you little bit more, no, I am just looking at the time and I'll just let you understand, yeah. You should not eat all the damn steaks and potato you ate, you know. I know. Okay, ready now?

Now very slowly, try to control your fingers and make a fist. Very slowly, extremely slowly and then slowly open it up. Because five TattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities. In total there are 36 tattvas. Each wave of differentiation has its own rules and structure. The final five tattvas are called the gross elements and have the phasic qualities and relationships of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. of which this body is made, are controlled by our five fingers. And when you are closing it down, you are working on your Id, you are working on your Jupiter, you are working on your Saturn, and your Sun and your Mercury and other bounds, and you will start realizing that you are getting little different than what you are! But do it very slowly and consciously. Just don't, there is no hurry. You are not going anywhere. And this... don't be afraid of being hurt. Get hurt. Get hurt. Just slowly and gradually, consistently, just for the caliber sake.

They are going? They are not going to explain to them? What they are going to do tomorrow?

Student: (-----).

YB: Class mukhree.

Student: (----).

YB: (?).

Just, just do it, just do it yourself. You know how much you are willing to pay to get rid of arthritis? Just now. You know just now how much you want to have a good stomach and you want to have good stuff in your body? Now, this is one exercise, you can do it to achieve. I am not saying it's not going to cause pain. That's not my fault. Even I do it, I may hurt. Get to it. Like, make a fist, really fist; and open it, really open it. Come on, come on, now what is the difficulty? Is it so bad? Yeah? It hurts?

Student: No sir.

Yeah? When you start eating, you look at the plate, do you know it will hurt?

(Students' laughter)

Hmm? Those bagel and cream cheese and all those maple syrup and a pile of that stuff and eggs and this and that, have you ever understood...

SIDE - B

... paraphernalia that. You must, you must eat only that which you can get it out of your body within twenty-four hours; light food. Light food, even the football athletes are eating vegetables now, after suffering heart attacks left and right.

Come on, come on. I want you to live young. I want you to look pretty, I want you to look very effective, right? Come on, just keep on doing this. What's so wrong? You give up? It's not a fifteen-ring point boxing match, simple just closing your... you know, you go to any teacher, I tell you one thing. Nobody is going to give you this exercise. They want to give you philosophy, they will talk you good things, they will read scriptures, they will send you home. So you can eat big meal and suffer. Na, na, na... No fish and chips here. Just pay for it. This is exact payment for your wrong eating. This exercise will totally give you the biggest acupuncture of the planet. And by doing so, it will bring you the beauty. Are you, some of you started sweating or not yet? Aah?

Student: Oh yes.

YB: Come on, come on, come on, come on. Let's, what I want you to reach a point of sweat. That's all and I know you are sweating.

Student: I sweat.

YB: I know you have to sweat, do you hear? Come on, go through it. Sweat. Break it. Colitis and politis and, you have to sweat, you have to suffer with this exercise. And it is no fault of mine, it is your bad habits of eating. And no acupuncture, what do you do? You go to acupuncturist, got another week, another week and why don't you do it once for all? Get rid of that pain. Let your brain create another morphia, so that morphine can just go and conquer the pain. Come on, come on. Come on, now. What is neck has gone wrong you? No, straight, simple, steady, right?

Suffer, suffer, suffer, suffer. There is no joy without suffering. You know what I mean? Hey, you are, some of you are making that fist very small. Make it tough and loose it tough and the fingers come, they should come like that. Come on, come on, kids, let's suffer. For our own health, God sake, now how you can give up, look at you. You can't give up. No way. Don't give up.

You have exactly forty-five more seconds to suffer. I am looking at this watch. There is nothing I can do. I am not going to be very kind to you, because I know you, from tomorrow onward, just eat light! And, you know, your whole problem, the, all you are all perpetual, you are all working for perpetual impotency! And that's what it is. Get fat, get lean, (?). No energy, nothing to do; don't do that to yourself. Come on, thirty seconds more! Umhu, right there. Come on, come on, come on. Work hard, work, work, really; come on, pull yourself. It's not bad, fifteen seconds only now. Sorry, 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. Singh, this is the way it is. That's what it is.

Ten seconds, stand by, get ready, inhale deep, make your fist tight, hold the breath and please make it tighter, tighter, tighter, tighter and pull the navel in tighter and with a cannon, let it go. That's all right. Inhale deep, very deep. Hold tight, get to your fist and go after it; must get into your whole body. Close it. The extremities must be tight. Now pull the navel in, tighter and fire out! Once more. Inhale deep, hold tight, make the fist tighter, tighter, tighter, tighter and please bend forward. Tight fist. And fire out. Relax.

Are we okay? What do you mean uff? Have you seen Dr. SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Kaur that much red in life?

(Students' laughter)

It takes only couple minutes to get the balance of the energy and you will be fit for another six, eight hours. In life, please understand certain things you can do in your life; get going. I understand there is no food in our life which can sustain us, and there is no energy in our life which will continuous, but we have a reserve in us! And if we can have a little mastery over our TattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities. In total there are 36 tattvas. Each wave of differentiation has its own rules and structure. The final five tattvas are called the gross elements and have the phasic qualities and relationships of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. and our three nervous system, five TattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities. In total there are 36 tattvas. Each wave of differentiation has its own rules and structure. The final five tattvas are called the gross elements and have the phasic qualities and relationships of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. , that will give us three good gunasGunas The three qualities or threads that make up the fundamental forces in nature and the mind. Their interactions give motion to the world, stir the larger Greater Mind, and make up the realm of our experience. They are considered inseparable and occur in unlimited combinations. They are abstract; you can only see their effects. They are the sattva guna for clarity and purity; the rajasic guna for action and transformation, and the tamasic guna for heaviness, solidity, and ignorance. and we can eliminate the clogging of our Chakras, we'll be fine.

And there is no reason to live in Los Angeles and not worry about that smog which you breathe all the time. So it has its own toll, it has its own effect and process of life is very fast. There is no more we will go twelve miles and our limit is two hundred fifty miles. Today, the whole world is before us, within half an hour. Our capacity of God is now there is no tomorrow!

So whatever bifurcation you have: "I am a Sikh, you are a Moslem, I am Hindu, you are a Jew, I am ..." This doesn't mean anything. Because basically, you are not human. If you are basically human, then put anything. I mean, first have a donkey and put some load on it, that is understandable! If there is no donkey, and there is a load, what's the idea, you know what's the big deal? I don't understand. I can understand somebody is a Jew, if he is a human first. First become human, because that's what God made you and then become a good Jew or a bad Jew, doesn't matter, but that's so understandable. But there is no human and there is a Jew. There is no human, there is a Moslem; no human and there is a Sikh, and there is no human, and there is a Christian! The only place I meet Christian is that place where they have cross over them and they are lying down born such and such, died such and such date. That is very Christian, isn't it? Isn't it? Or there is very Jewish, when there is a star of David and the whole stuff. Rest of the time, how many time you remember who you are? And how many time you remember you are a human being first? For the time being, you are human being. Human being is you are a hue. Your auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. must have a light. I mean, don't run after big philosophies, it's all within you! Consciously just remember: "I am a human being, I am not a animal, I am not going to act on my impulse. I have to act on my 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. ."

In my life, there comes lot of diseases which I have to make as a head of the religion, as a businessman, as a father, as a person, as a man; there are lot of aspects, lot of facets. It takes only one slip to make a wrong decision. That I must forget not that I am a human and what I am doing affects a human or many humans. If you are a family person, your decision will affect the whole family. If you are in the neighborhood, you will affect the whole neighborhood. Everything. It's just like a little stone which goes into the water, and the puddle, and it goes, waves goes all around. Whatever you do, your action, that's what Nanak said:-

"Karmee aapo aapanee ke nerai ke door."

Your action decide how near you are with your Infinity of God and how far away you are.

How many people you offend a day, how many people you console a day. How many people you love a day, how many people you hate a day. How many people you lie to, how many people lie to you. You have to understand that. It's just, it's just a living. I know, you are very sexual and sensual or horny and imaginative and positive and wah, wah, wah, but what about when you are eighty-five? What happens then? Your hangs out ha, ha, ha...doesn't move.

(Students' laughter)

YB: What are those in the North Pole those thing, penguins? You walk like penguins, right? And now you don't even touch the ground. You are up there, every wet dream costs you a nervous system, which you cannot recuperate in thirty days! One wet dream. It will kill your parasympathetic nervous system. Do you know that? You cannot recuperate from one wet dream in thirty days. If you go to the bathroom and your bowels does not come like a one cannon fire, you have five days of depression to follow! And that's how this body is. Don't have it in your head. That, what they (?) something, make you regular?

Student: (-------).

YB: Something like that. No, no, you have to be regular yourself. You have to chew the food. You have to digest it and you have to bring it out. Anything which valve, and the lower little ring, if causes pressure, your brain shall not work properly, doesn't matter who you are. Little constipated, not totally, little. And how many of you do not urinate when it comes says "Go." Come on. Confess. Confess. I know, then everybody does that. Now, when you feel the first, first feel the urge of that you have to urinate, please go. Here she goes!

(Students' laughter)

Because anytime you hold the urine in, the bladder meridian totally upsets your system. Do you know that? And you know what a bladder meridian is? It hits the pituitary. And it ruins your thinking. For you, it is a joke. For your system, it's a disaster. So try to understand that life is a gift. And every breath you cannot buy. So any moment you live, you breathe, it should be healthy, happy, holy. Everybody has nine holes. If you control what comes in and what goes out, it is holy. There is nothing special about it.

Tonight, I will like to introduce a person who has come from the native Punjab, which is northern India, who is a civil servant, like as we have Secretary of State and Secretary of Finance, and Secretary of Treasury, that kind of rank; but in his private hours, he participates with people healing through vibrations, through the holy world, that he has dedicated himself and he is a guest and this morning, he was with us at 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. AshramAshram , Aashram A community of practitioners who come together to live conscious, mindful lives. and we participated and we joined. So I, I like to ask him (?) few minutes.

Student: Not sure.

YB: (?).

Just for few minutes.

Student: (----).

YB: And I'll ask Sardar Har Dayal Singh to come and talk to you about his method which he has been using from last many years and there is a whole literature, how many people have been healed from certain sicknesses and diseases which were not practically possible. So...

The guest: My dear sisters and brothers, the work which this voluntary organization is doing, it originated with my self-experience. I had heart enlargement with other complications and being a senior civil servant in the state, I had access to all the medical facilities which I duly availed of. Since I didn't get any relief from the systems, that is allopathy and Ayurveda and homeopathy, all the systems we tried. I did name recitation, divine name recitation for about three months; doing recitation for about six hours everyday, that is three hours in the morning and three hours in the evening, after office hours. In about three months, my heart size became normal. Thereafter, I had some few other problems which I could manage and control with divine name recitation.

This opened my eyes about the potential for healing by divine name recitation. This idea struck me that why not to hold healing camps for the sick persons. So, I started holding healing camps for the sick persons in 1983. For the last about ten years, we have been doing this; we have been providing healing service to sick persons in India. We have so far held about sixty healing camps. In the sixty healing camps, about three hundred thousand persons have participated and they got relief. I came to Chicago since I was invited to give a presentation on self-healing through inner power, at the Parliament of World's Religions. And I availed of this opportunity to visit 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. Guru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. Ram DasGuru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. AshramAshram , Aashram A community of practitioners who come together to live conscious, mindful lives. and today morning, I covered part of my presentation in the morning.

Now we have found that all ailments are curable by divine name recitation, by the recitation of GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. and by cultivating faith. GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. has healing powers. Anyone who recites GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. , who hears GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. being sung, gets healed. Faith can also be cultivated by everyone. There are two processes for cultivating faith. One process is a rational process.

What is faith? Faith is a belief that God would heal, God has healed. This is belief. Faith is a belief. If you have this belief that God would heal, God has healed, then you will be healed. So if you gave up all the notions, all beliefs including the knowledge which is contrary to faith and cultivate beliefs, notions which nurture faith, then you have cultivated faith; faith in the healing powers of God, in the healing powers of Lord. Once this faith is cultivated, the disease will vanish. So, this is one method of cultivating faith.

The other method is cultivating faith by the recitation of selected hymns from GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. . The many hymns in GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. which say that gracious God has healed me, has cured me of all ailments. You can pick up some hymns form GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. and then recite them. By reciting them, you will be able to ingrain faith in your mind. If you go on saying that gracious God has healed me, He has healed me, He has healed me, then faith will come. It's a very convenient and simple process. By following this process, everyone can get himself healed. So we use these three methods that is, divine name recitation, the recitation of GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. and cultivation of faith. And by following these three methods, we have succeeded in achieving miraculous results.

I brought a data in regard to 342 patients who attended five camps in Chandigarh, in December 1992 and in February, March, April and May 1993. That data showed that 342 patients had sixty-one ailments covering all the systems of the body. And what was the relief? What was the recovery? The recovery percentage that 93% of the patients who attended these camps received relief from the various ailment, from the sixty-one ailments they were suffering from, varying from 25% to 100%, just in five days, without any drugs. So this method of getting healed from various ailments is quite convenient, is easy and it can be followed by everyone.

I think, this is enough by way of introduction.

YB: You have to come 5 AM. With your difficulty you have to come 5 AM at 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. AshramAshram , Aashram A community of practitioners who come together to live conscious, mindful lives. which is opposite the road, and Sardar Har Dayal Singh will conduct the seminar tomorrow. He is with us, he will be with us today and tomorrow. And the, the busyness of his program is so much that everybody wants to know; it's free, there is no charge and secondly, he is himself a very high positioned government officer and from his personal experience he has (?) you have kor dukheen? Put it on. And one of the recitation which we use, we are going to play, right now because that's one of the tape. This was made at the moment of my sickness when they thought that I'll not return. And they immediately put it into music. You know we are very fast in western world. So we put the ShabadShabad , Shabd Sound, especially subtle sound or sound imbued with consciousness. It is a property or emanation of consciousness itself. If you meditate on shabad it awakens your awareness. into and we put it to the tapes because thousands of students didn't know what to do and we did it.

(The tape of ShabadShabad , Shabd Sound, especially subtle sound or sound imbued with consciousness. It is a property or emanation of consciousness itself. If you meditate on shabad it awakens your awareness. is played).

YB (talks over tape): Louder. Can you follow the song?... If my disease is the heaviest of all heaviness, and if my life is just laziest of the laziest, we just, literally translate the meaning, to the worst of my knowledge...... And I have done the worst deeds of the deeds. It is in Sanskrit. They are adding first words of all the negativity possible.... By reciting the name of the Lord, as the big pile of the wood, by little matchstick, is burnt to ashes, that is how all the disease vanished. This is exact and (?)means.....

(The tape stops).

YB: It was done as a emergency. My case was very serious, and according to the medical doctors at that time, it was very difficult because there was no movement. And everybody wanted to do a prayer. So, this tape was made by 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. Raj Kaur in Vancouver and immediately distributed. And it was played. And people, some of them become so familiar with it, that they can correctly pronounce it.

What happens, there are two things in life, you have to understand. Your upper palate has eighty-four meridian points and the tip of the tongue touches it into that balance, to create stimulation of the hypothalamus. And moment hypothalamus which controls the automatics of your body, is brought to a actionary revolution, under the system of yours, it totally moves all the three rings of the stem of the brain into the concentration of the point, 390, which is the relevancy on which your brain frequency can act Infinity. There is no way your body can be sick, the Tattva changes. It's as simple as that.

It's not that any scientist or any doctor or any person can challenge it. Whether it happens or not, that is when the seminars are taken place and accordingly all the data is collected, then there is a reinforcement to it. Under the American Insurance Act, we do not bring religion into healing. But personal practices are personal advantages. I would like to assure you, we are not fanatics and we do not bring ourself to the point that because there are other things available, therefore reject everything and stick to something.

You have read all these medical cases within the sight of the United State Courts. But on the other hand, there is nothing wrong in a prayer. If prayer doesn't have a power and personal prayer doesn't have a power, person has no power. Take it from me! Your powers may be all your imaginative powers: "I have so many relatives, I have so much money in the bank, I know so and so..." I don't believe all that is a power. Your power is in your personal prayer. And what was you that being told that there is a scientific method in which you can pray for yourself and try by the positive affirmation, effectively heal. And I'll like the audience to understand that it does not mean that we are against medical, um? What do you say? Secretary of State has something to say.

Student: Well, I was going to say that the most powerful place .....

YB: Yeah, there is a.... what she is trying to say the most powerful place to heal is the Golden Temple, and people have gone there and they vouch for those records of miracles and after nine years, we were lucky to go there and hundred-sixty people we went and in November we are going again. It's, it's what she is trying to say and let us go for the sip and dip of the Golden Nectar over there. If you have never been to India, it's a time to go. And if you have been there, let us go it again. We can afford it, we are rich people. But what is the fun? We can afford a ticket and go there and have fun.

Last time, we were wanted to go on five or ten people, we were hundred sixty people and I cannot believe what we saw and what we enjoyed! We were whole night awake and it was a surgical tour, you know; six days we went everywhere. But the most powerful time was... I mean people who have never been to Golden Temple. Never knew what heck we are taking them and what it means and we never said a thing. They never wanted to come, it became difficult to roll them up back into train and now there are some people who wants to go and who wants to have maximum time there and they are not interested in seeing this and seeing that.

Including that, you have to understand discipline is a discipline. When we go, we go, and we do, what we all do collectively; that's also one requirement. So we will be going in November, anyway. Hell or heaven, doesn't matter to us. It is a place to go, it's a place to get healed and it's not the descent of one moment or years, it is from centuries and centuries and centuries. When it was a little pond, it healed, now it's a beautiful place, it heals. It has not changed its variety and effect of it. Because the longitude, latitude at which it's placed, is the center nerve of the meridian north cross psyche of the planet earth. And there is nothing about it that we are most worried and all that, and as the Age of Aquarius starts, it's comes to exactly thirty-degree angle.

So, it's not all these places where you see the million people get attracted to go of different faith, are because they are on the main psyche at the nerve of the earth. So basically these are some places. If we are allowed tomorrow to go to Mecca, I'll be the first person to be visiting, but unfortunately you have to be a Muslim first, to go and visit, which I can't afford right now.

(Students' laughter)

So basically, that might be the point. Otherwise, there is no way not to go. And now because of the accord, Jerusalem will be the place and may be next year, our Secretary of State will design a tour that we can go from here to Jerusalem; Jerusalem to.... I don't know, they will allow us to go to Mecca, but may be, we end up Cairo or something, God knows if we can and some, some holy place, but there are three religion meet at Jerusalem; Moslems, Jews and Christians, and then we can go to Golden Temple from there and visit something like that. We are trying to visit places once in lifetime which are places of worth.

So that's the secondary question. Question is if you come tomorrow 5 o'clock in the morning, on the strike of the clock, Sardar Har Dayal Singh, who has by his own self come all the way to let people know, will be talking. He is a Indian Administrative Service Officer, knows English much, much, much way better than we speak. We don't care for the American's grammar, but he will speak very British English. It will be perfect pronunciation and grammar and punctuation will be correct and accurate. So you may find difficulty in following his accent, because I learnt it myself very hard way because you say, skeule (schedule) we say shedule (schedule). So those kind of things are just the same different.

However, it is 5 o'clock tomorrow morning. Try to come if you want to enjoy it. It's not difficult. And, I'll be with you to complete this what we have started today. Again when? Tomorrow, Thursday, and then I'll ask your permission to go back to New Mexico, the place I love the most! God lives everywhere, but His postal address is Espanola, you know what I mean?

(Students' laughter)

It's very difficult to leave that wonderful place and come, but your love was there, that's why I used a week. Now, now what?

Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. Ha, ha, ha, ha, can't forget this. SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Narain SimranSimran A deep meditative process in which the naam of the Infinite is remembered and dwelled in without conscious effort. Kaur, the most jeweled girl today.

She is a rich woman, I thought she will bring lot of stuff today!

(Students' laughter)

But today, I just get rid out of misery of living on the pile of money and not spending. So, I thought it's a day that she can be done that way. She is very intelligent and very well experienced person; if anybody in the community you want to talk to a real professional. She is never available, but somehow you can, you can catch up with her and we thank God for her being with us. And she is going to be what 58 or 92?

(Students' laughter)

And mind you, she looks young! No, normally in the office you work, they all become.... forget it! That one office takes away the juice out of everybody! She is pretty healthy.

It's called allergies, right? And they are hundred and fifty of them, right? The only thing you found out to relieve yourself is black pepper and ginger. These are two things which you have to use excessively for these next fifteen days. Black pepper.
