YB: (?) stand in this keep sitting. Did you understand in this aspect what GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Guru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. is saying is about woman? Have you understood the one last line? What is the last line? Yeah that I know by heart. Don't worry. You read it before that one line. Yeah. Wait a minute what is it?

Students: (----)

Why it has been said? It is not true. Whatever 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. says if you don't understand it is not true. What you mean by this? That's what I am asking. Try you are all intelligent, well read. Why it has been said? If you don't understand why it has been said then you will never understand God. I don't care what you do? Yes?

Student: (----)

God does born out of woman in the shape of a man and prophet and everything. God the theory is God is God plus. That you have to understand right here. Manifest mission. No manifestation is possible beyond woman that's true. Only un manifested is beyond woman. What you are understanding is God is beyond woman that's not true. Manifestation of God and manifesting God or manifested God is within woman. Only the unmanifested is beyond woman. That's what exactly it means. If God is beyond woman then man is a God. Providedly you are going to believe that? Doesn't matter if they don't give you equal rights but fact is a fact. So much so Nanak says that if you just praise that blessed woman you will be received in the court of God with grace. That's why in the western civilization we call woman better half. Don't misunderstand me I am not asking you to change your American values to call a woman a chick or bird or use her as doormat and all this, it is your problem. I have nothing to do with it. I am just telling you in English there is a one expression we call it better half and that is used for a... so 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. qualifies the fact "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. Dev Maatha Gurudev Pita Gurudev bandu Parameshwaram," equivalent to that also in Gurubani. Gurubani also says this about but I am just telling you the shastra certain things do meet. First teacher is the mother and for your information mother doesn't teach anything to the child when the cord is cut.

Mother teaches everything to the child that day the soul enters to the day the child takes the first breath. The shape, the destiny, the strength, the life, the power, the projection, the personality is all built in. Whatever she eats that is the body whatever she thinks that is the mind and whatever she feels of God that is the light of the soul and it has to be recognized as it is. Don't try to make it. I used to have my very sweet daughter one day I asked her I said, "O my God, you are going to have trouble."

She said, "Why."

I said, "You don't let you husband sleep these days" because she was so argumentative and so fighting and so feisty. So she was delivered by the God's grace was blessed with a daughter. You won't believe it. AshramAshram , Aashram A community of practitioners who come together to live conscious, mindful lives. has to baby-sit for that child at night. There was no way the girl will cry six pm to six am straight and afterwards on intervals. So my asking you is not you think things happen you think trees grow. Trees grow. Have you seen in New Mexico state of New Mexico bamboo stick growing? Cotton wood trees? Yes. Bamboo stick? No. In California you put a bamboo stick, God knows you come after ten days it is a huge thing. Why, why it doesn't grow here. Why there? Soil! Soil is the base. So the soul is 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. .

That's where the relationship is. Therefore there is no idea say I have bad parents, I have good parents, I have big parents, I have small parents. I am a bad child, I am good child that has nothing to do with it. It is a set rule and from that set basic rule you can change to anything.

So recognize the fact that power you all ask for power. You all want power. That's right. Power comes from prayer and now question arises what is a prayer. What is a prayer? Let me tell you the definition of prayer and then you can decide how much prayer you can do. Prayer is the intunement of the mind into the higher consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. and into the unknown. Prayer is?

Students: (----)

It has nothing else to do what you say and what you don't say. It is just intunement mental intunement and that is where the power is. What we do when we are in trouble we start doing the prayer. When we are not who cares. Our prayers are seasonal. So our mood, so our temperaments, so our life but in this life of our human life it's average these days sixty five to seventy five years. Prayer is the power. One who can do the prayer can be very powerful. Very powerful because prayer makes the entire elements to serve that person. All elements. Gifts will come to that person. Whosoever will give to that person will be gifted hundredfold, thousand fold, that's also the beauty of it. There is a very beautiful story when Baba Kalu slapped Nanak that why you took that money and fed those hungry yogisYogi 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. in the way and 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. said, "I did through Sachavanj, Sachasauda, I did a truthful bargain" because Sikhs are like every other religion they are just twisting the history. Actually the fact is this is the fact you have heard the story and you read this story in many ways. When 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. went and they were passing through these jungles they found these yogisYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. and saintly kind of siddha sitting there and 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. satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. with them and listened to them and talked with them and they gave him what they call is happiness knowledge.

He had some kind of experiences with them. So he found them to be very truthful, very real and in lieu of that he brought all the food, cooked it and fed them. In those days that was a lot of money and just to feed there must have some joyful happiness in Nanak he could do it but to father it was waste of money. He said, "I gave you money to go and do the trade start the trade. I give you basic capital and you ruined the entire capital. You fed it to these beggars?"

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. said, "No. I have not fed anything to beggar." I did a true vanj, sachasouda, I did a true trade." It was true business and Baba Kalu said, "What benefit that business has done? What benefit?" And sister Naniki intervened she said, "Father you should not have slapped this boy. The business is for his name sake you and we shall be remembered. You have slapped the face of God today father." That was the exact quote unquote words of the sister and Mehta Kalu, the father of GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Guru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. could not understand what she is talking. "Hey you two crazy get out of my sight." There was recognition that's what I am trying to tell you God is everywhere we don't have the eyes to see and recognize that's the fact. Our shirt gets sweaty and gets torn and sometime food fell on it and spill it and looks bad. Why do we change it? We change it. We don't mind changing it. Why we change it because we know there is a second shirt we can wear. Body is just like that shirt when it is spoilt you change it or it's become worthless but the only fear you have is you don't want to change it because you do not know what next.

Fear of the unknown and the second aspect of the prayer is moment you become prayerful person fear of the unknown is gone and love of the unknown awakens. Death doesn't mean anything. Kabir (?) Kabir know the door is open I can go and I can come. There is no problem. Problem is to that person who doesn't know where he is going and what will be the next. Did I tell you the story of that rich man and his servant? Didn't I? All right. I will repeat it fast. If I have told it it's fine if I not even then it's fine. There was a rich man and he used to go to the summer place and with all the pomp and show the arrangement, the horse, the whole thing. So after this servant of his served him for a long time and one day he said, "My Lord, I want to go to the Ganges and do the yatra so I should be blessed. The rich man took his stick you know, it was very beautiful stick worked with gold and silver. It was very showpiece of art He said, "Take this with you. Travel up to the Ganges and enjoy. If you find a foolish person, most foolish person, most foolish person give this stick to him." He came back after three years. He had his stick in his hand so this rich man allotted him a village to take control, to collect the revenue do the whole thing. So it's fine. Couple years went by one day his wife said, "Have you seen your master?"

He said, "He never calls me, I never go."

She said, "I understand he is dying and message has come you should go." So this man rode on the horse went saw a very funny story.

He saw his master lying down on the ground on a pure white sheet lying down and breathing his last breath. He went and saluted. He said, "Yes you have come."

He said, "My rich Lord you are going to go now."

He said, "Yes."

He said, "You know where?

"No."

"Any information where you are going?"

He said, "No."

"Did you check out where you are going from somebody who has gone and somebody who has experienced?"

He said, "No."

He said, "When you used to go in summer to hill station how many clothes you have to take, horses, food, towels, underwear, brush, toothbrush, all this. We used to go only for three months. There used to be so many arrangements and we used to send a team advance to make the arrangements secure the house, see the garden there is all right and then we used to go. Remember?"

He said, "Yeah."

I said, "Now you are going on a journey. You do not know where, when you are going to come back what is going to happen you didn't make any arrangements."

He said, "No."

He said, "Here is the stick."

There is nobody more foolish than you for going three months just to pass summer, you used to create a hell and make all the arrangements. Now your God knows how many summers you are going to go and you do not know where you are going. That is not unknown to the person who does prayer. That's the promise by God. That's the fear of death, it is never a fear to those who are prayerful and prayer doesn't not mean that you have to jump and juggle and make a huge panorama show that you are very prayerful. No, no there is something it's an intunement. It's a conscious intunement with the unknown.

Have you seen the story in Mount Chesta, there lives prophets. They come out at night and talk to people? Nothing lives in that mountain otherwise American will go and dig them all out. The problem is that mountain is really very pretty in the nowhere it is a very simple mountain, top is always white with snow and it is not a big mountain, it's small and it's very lovely and California doesn't have that kind of a lot of good sweet mountain that type and in Japan also there is a Fiji mountain. You have seen that? It's beautiful because of that shape that dome type shape so basically nothing lives there. It is only our concept of the unknown because the law is where there is a known there is unknown. If you continue relating to the known you are denying the unknown, if you relate to the known which you are and you search out the known unknown it is the prayer. You think I have to do prayer. O God bless me. It's totally unnatural. God understand you are holding the hand. The power, which is holding the hand is God. The lips, which are uttering is the God. You are trying to concentrate it is God. You might be thinking I should have been eating pizzas in the pizza hut at this time and you are making a posture of prayer. So your mind is somewhere different. You are somewhere different but when you are intuned with the unknown known is very, very peaceful.

Peace is experienced and known through the power of prayer. You believe me or not people who do their Sadana, and they do their banis, they do their prayer their death is very peaceful. I have seen many, many, many, many people when the last time comes they just lie down and they say goodbye to everybody and they are gone because they know where they are going. There is no fear. There is no harassment. That's also one advantage of the power of the?

Students: Prayer.

Then the most beautiful thing, which is called the selfish need of a prayer. I call it selfish need and that is that birth is according to the karmaKarma The law of cause and effect applied to mental, moral, and physical actions.

That's why you are born on a specific longitude and latitude. People who are born in Africa are black. People who are born in Europe are Caucasian. People who are born in Asia are oriental. They have different shape this and that different environment. Environments sometime are very poor. Sometime environments are very rich. I am not going into that right now. I am just trying to explain it to you the reality of it.

Prayer is the power of God in you. You don't do prayer to outside. You do prayer from inside. You do prayer from inside to inside.

They appeared as a petition, petition and they said, Lord we are householders and you told us to come to Amritsar. We came and you said we should do business. We are doing business. Right? We are doing nothing wrong but these kind of holy men the Sadhus and YogisYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. and the saintly people who come here, they demand things from us that we should give them this offering. We should give them this and they have miraculous power if we don't give them anything they sometime my child become sick.

So matter ended there but it didn't end with that. People are people you know they wanted to know the power of miracles. That is why that shabadh is in the baniBani Literally "Word", Refers to the Word of God contained in the Sikh Sacred Writings; Banis refers to Sikh daily prayers. is,

"Dhan Dhan Ram Das 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. Jin Siriya Tinne Savariya, Poori Hoiee Karaamaat Aap Sirjan Haarey Taariya"

That is where the catch is, that is the catch twenty-two. To relieve you of all negative forces. This 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. has a virtue that if you just sing it eleven times a day any time there is no version. Your life will not come to any dead end. What's in it? I tell you what is in it. If you understand the computerized arrangements it has a Nad combination. To trigger the miraculous power of the Aad, Aad means the infinite God what is the shabadh. Shabadh is a projected program tuned to create vibratory effect to respond. That's why every religion has one secret word. Muslims say Allah. Hindu says Ram. Some say Krishna. Some say Jehovah, some say something, everything. God has millions names.

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. . Akasha, ether, air, ether, air, water, fire, earth, right, got it? Sa Ta Na Ma five. Now if you tell Sa Ta Na Ma somebody say this guy is crazy because it is not normal. It is not normal to mediate in the presence of people. Try to understand that.

Don't try when you come for 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. .

Therefore it is useless asking in prayer get me a car. That's not prayer. That is projecting a desire. God give me a car. Don't ask it. Just say, God, God, God and if God appears then go to hell. What kind of God you are you don't know what I am asking for. Arey, if God doesn't know which is everywhere what's you need who knows. It is very funny.

In Kashmir we were patrolling one night. We lost the way. So we all have those stars and the whole thing but nothing worked. We even couldn't read anything and unfortunately that day we forgot the box of candles. So we didn't know what to do. We started burning the matchsticks try to find it out, it didn't work. We asked our Sherpas what to do. They do a lot of things if wind is coming from there, the smell is coming but they have their own system. This is quite authentic. It didn't so we had no option but to start camping, they asked me what to do. I said take eleven steps. If you believe in God in Muslim way or Hindu way or Sikh way because there were lot of people with us. Take eleven steps and chant the name of God and where we all stop we will camp there. Very convenient. So what happened is everybody took eleven steps in different directions. It happened walked in one way and later on I heard my orderly "Sir we got it, sir we got it!" So we all ran there and we saw him sitting with automatic emergency message pole. Wireless pole. Out of the blue, it didn't mean anything to anybody. It was there was he went right under trees and in the big trees, there it was some old message post. We say well let us see it is intact or not. We had little apparatus with us. We fixed it and we start sending the code. And surprisingly within three minutes the reply came in we are locating you give us location and we said we know nothing. No location. But where are you? We say only we have a old wireless pole which we feel belongs to the army. Find it out where we are and it is going to be bad night if we are left out. Roger over, stay we will be back with you and within two hours we found on us gur gur we said, well they locate us. They found it out.

So what I am trying to explain it to you there is nothing, which is happening which is beyond you and it is beyond God. That's not true. Whatever is not known to you is not intuned in you because you do not know how to project your power of prayer. The one fundamental gift of prayer is you know. The classification of prayer is a technology with a human being through which the unknown is known, unseen is seen, unheard is heard that is prayer. Prayer is not what you project out and what you project in. These are human feelings about prayer. You kneel down on your knees and then pray you. I saw in Mexico something very, very strange. One woman walked on these two knees. She was full-fledged perfect lady, I mean healthy. There was no reason for her to walk that way. She walked fourteen miles, fourteen miles a day on these and she was walking couple of weeks. That was her faith. That was her way of prayer. You can't say anything to her. She came to that church of lady of Guadalupe and she was very happy she made it. Now for you it may be a torture, a fashion, the old fashion, nuisance whatever you call it but you understand her face. Her face was so glowing with the happiness that she has made to the church that her 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. was so blue and so glittering that out of all the people she was like a bowl of power. It was very difficult to even to recognize in between there is a woman and a lot of people who are walking around with her with a reverence and in very great salutation.

So it doesn't mean how you do prayer. Prayer is your method in which you can tune the mind. I tune my mind in different way. You intune your mind in different way but let us remember it is your mind. It is your prayer and it is all about you. Prayer has no relationship with anybody. Prayer is totally your own power to tap the unknown. Why we asked you not to drive the car without chanting the mantraMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind. Tra-ng is the wave or movement of the mind. Mantra is a wave, a repetition of sound and rhythm that directs or controls the mind. When you recite a mantra you have impact through the meridian points in the mouth, through its meaning, through its pattern of energy, through its rhythm, and through its naad - energetic shape in time. Recited correctly a mantra will activate areas of the nervous system and brain and allow you to shift your state and the perceptual vision or energetic ability associated with it. ? It's very simple prayer.

"Aad Guray Nameh, Jugaad Guray Nameh SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Guray Nameh 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. Devay Nameh"

How much it takes? Few seconds. "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.

But there is a law behind it. There is a science behind it because once you start death cannot hit you. Death hits you five times. Just remember. Death cannot take you away on the first hit that's the law. Nobody born shall die by first attack of death. That's the guarantee by God. God is by law bound down to give you four warnings. Not three, four, at the fifth time he is going to pick up. Only the exception is the accidental death. When your soul has to continue changing the body you must die here and must get born there, that's called transfer plan. That computer does like this. In the car, off the curve you are dead. No scratch on the body, nothing, car fell on tires, no problem but you are not there because you are already born you will say, Hehehe mama! Whatever the thing is that's it. That is transferred. It's a body transfer. It's not considered death. Cut start. That's it. Otherwise the law is you must have four warnings. Clear. Don't you say O my God. I was going to die. I just escaped by hairbreadth. That's one. You know if you actually recollect and remember you will be totally surprised you count them up. You will be perfect with account so what happens is that's is what it is.

That's why I say chant mantraMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind. Tra-ng is the wave or movement of the mind. Mantra is a wave, a repetition of sound and rhythm that directs or controls the mind. When you recite a mantra you have impact through the meridian points in the mouth, through its meaning, through its pattern of energy, through its rhythm, and through its naad - energetic shape in time. Recited correctly a mantra will activate areas of the nervous system and brain and allow you to shift your state and the perceptual vision or energetic ability associated with it. . Two things must happen before death can hit you. desh and kaal, time and space, longitude and latitude because law of God is unchangeable. You must be born on a longitude and latitude and you shall die on a longitude and latitude. These two things are pre determined. They shall not change. So you have to be at that place at that time. The magnet... Now science. The magnitude of the magnetic frequency of the earth by virtue of his own nucleus must be neutral at a certain longitude and latitude to eliminate the life and make the 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. to dispense with because five tattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities.

So each tattva must be neutralized to receive the tattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities. In total there are 36 tattvas.

So death is a totally organic section of life. It is not inorganic. It's natural. So what we say do the prayer. So at least you will be not at that space though time will be same. You will be second and a half late. By your chanting the mantraMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind. Tra-ng is the wave or movement of the mind.

We don't do anything. It's all for you because when you put the key you start the car you should be moving. No you stay there. Aad Guray Nameh... I have seen people who do that. They start the car. It's already instead of putting their hand on their steering they fold it,

"Aad Guray Nameh, Jugaad Guray Nameh SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself.

And there they go. It is about three to five seconds. Time it sometime. Some are quick they finish in three seconds. Some are just slow. They finish in five seconds. By five second late in space it means you might be six inches or two feet away from the point of elimination.

That's what it is and then if some disease happen, certain things happen you call these orthodox thing they don't work these days. Why to pray just a take one pill you will be all right. No my dear. The continuance of energy, life energy, which is called pranaPraana , Prana The universal life force that gives motion. It is the breath in air. It is the subtle breath of the purusha as it vibrates with a psychophysical energy or presence. Praana regulates the modes and moods of the mind. , is continuous through the radiance body. Moment the soul enter the subtle bodySubtle Body See Ten Bodies. death has completed itself and then the magnetic psyche continues. It affects everything, as life affects everything, death affects everything. That's why it's very customary when a death takes place. Bibiji will give you detail lecture on this. I am not going to go into it that people take after seventeen days, take the remains and go to a holy place to just change the vibrations because the magnetic psyche must be broken and should not be allowed to continue. That's why because you must understand when a baby is born what happens everybody writes you letter. Everybody talks to you. Everybody is with you. When any persons dies in the family. Everybody writes to you, everybody talk to you. It's almost the same cycle. So we shift from one frequency to another. What? With the power of the prayer, in complete prayer is the essence, prayer is the projection and prayer is the destiny and prayer is the life because all power to you comes from prayer, not from you. Power of the prayer is the internal, the external, it is the accelerated. It is all dimensional and it can be totally untouched and ignored and not considered. Now, once two people appeared before God. They were brought for judgment.

One was a great man of prayer and rituals and 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. and all that. When he appeared the judgment God said, "Well, you did a lot of prayer, you really did. But you didn't put your heart into it. Okay? Go back have another life. That's it. This was just to warn you. Get out." He never went, he stood there. He said, "Why don't you go?"

He said, "This guy I know. He has all his life been abusing God. I wanted to know what happens to him. I am just waiting for that."

He said, "Okay. You wait." He said, 'You abused God a lot but with absolute pure heart. You get to heavens."
