It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. has talked to anything, which is very ignored attitude, ignored situation, people don't understand.

"Bhe Mukhu, Maan Mukhu, Saan Mukhu, 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. Mukhu."

And then it gives the categories.

"SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Purakh, So Purakh, Aad Purakh."

It qualifies God in to three things, and those aspects are neither taught, not shared and not understood, because unfortunately Sikh, Sikh Religion has to survive through the torture and the animosity with the spirit of strength and endurance and there was never a time to do deeper research. You will find three people in your life, fourth, you are fortunate, those who wants you to carry them, those who want to hold your hand, and those who want to once a while lean on you, but those who can just be with you or after you or around you and they want to walk themself are rare.

Actually the idea of the religion is to have self realization. And twenty years ago, when I came to America, people found me different, and I found them different, I told them don't lean on anybody, and they thought, that means they can lean on me, and when they practically got the experience, when I told them, I am not a 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. I am myself a disciple, I am not a teacher, I am myself a great student, but there is something much better from where I have learned where my strength is, my secret is and that is Siri GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. GranthGranth Literally: knot: book. , many of them were shocked, and many are shocked today.

Seven years with the Indian community, we had a war, and ruthless war. GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. was chairs and tables, as it was a club. People used to walk to the GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. , with their boots on and if even they had something to cover their head, as a matter of respect, they will take it off when they enter GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. . GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. was tugged away to the point, you can only look at it somewhere and that's how it was, Sikhism was, it was a Judeo-Christian Sikhism, being practiced here, with absolute in our reality, and when I talked to those people they could quote GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. , more authentically and more clearly than any highly qualified Sikh would, when I saw that we said, well, question is, if soldier is great and perfect, but he doesn't wear a uniform, that's the first discipline, which cannot be forgiven.

So, we started a campaign to have GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's house, in the way 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. has prescribed it, that end up in a war, and it is still that war is still on, it's not off yet. That's why each GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. is named after a man, Dr. Mervous GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. , Dr. Hakkam Singh GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. , Dr. Santok Singh GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. , Dr. Sharma Singh GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. , that kind of Gurdwaras, or they are associated with the roads, there is not a GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. , which is GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. . Somebody even asked me, just yesterday, "Thoddey GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. , in your GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. ."

I said, "Which is mine GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. , I don't know, which GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. you think, it's mine."

"Oh that AshramAshram , Aashram A community of practitioners who come together to live conscious, mindful lives. ."

I said, "That's 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. , is written so big and in big letters."

I said, "Don't you read it."

"I don't have a GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. . I have 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. , why, why GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. ? GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. only provide Sangat, GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. is a place where you come to humble yourself, GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. is a place, is one place, where you come, leaving your ego behind and come there to get something better, something higher. And GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. is where your neurons and your brains get the harmony with the Kirtan."

"Kal Jug mein Kirtan Pradan."

That doesn't mean that everything else is wrong, that only means, is the easiest way to harmonize your neurons pattern, into a viability of the polarity, in which the magnetic field will work to its frequency and establish its base, it's a simple science, it has nothing to do with anything, we have made a rule in this GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. , when we chant 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. and sing it the Sangat should do it, that's why we print the copies and give it you, so that you can also have the same effect, because we understand, seven days you are not going to come, but only one day, so six day, we prepare you for that, is it that wrong, and we don't call our places Temple, we don't call it Synagogue, we don't call it a Church, we call it GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's gate, that means once we enter, we are not we anymore, and we don't bow here as an exercise, we bow here as a surrender, and we sit here to listen to 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. 's words, not to our words. This is the state where a Maanmukh, one who only believes only in his own mind, comes here and becomes Saanmukh, because he has to face the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. and 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. Sangat. A Baaymukh, will not come, I have been discussing something about last six months with somebody.

I said, "Why don't you come to GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. ?"

"No sir, I want to see you."

I said, "Well! If you want to see me come to the GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. ."

"It means, I can't see you."

I said, "Yes, you can." Get out of this fear, fear of the infinite, Sangat is the fear of the infinite, you sit among the Sangat, you sit as equal, you sit as humble, you sit minus your ego and Id, not tolerable, then what we do in the Gurdwaras, to be recognized, so and so, so and so, so and so we want that reorganization in GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's house. So fundamentally we agree, 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. does know nothing. In one of the GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. , I had a wonderful dispute to deal with, the guy gave lot of money and poor Granthi forgot to do the ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. , and he was mad, he wanted his money back.

(Students laugh)

He said, "It was sacrilegious, he gave the money why his ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. is not done?"

I said, "Did not you understand, 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. 's word, 'Binn Boleya Sab Jaaneya'. He knows everything without speaking." Maybe it was GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's will, that your name has not been announced, because your ego was too big, 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. just wanted give you a kick, isn't that not enough.

He said, "There is no fun Yogiji to talk to you, you make everything positive."

(Students laugh)

I said, "I agree, that is one thing I believe."

Yesterday is gone, and you can be miserable by the memory of it, it won't do you any good, it is yesterday, it is already gone, today is going, you can't stop it, you can only welcome tomorrow, in the name of goodwill of human, grace of a GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. and 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. of a God, and that's the only positive way to live and that is alphabet of a Sikh, that is called Cherdi Kala, because since morning, you saw me today late because I was on lot of telephone, long distances, people want to know what is Cherdi Kala? Is it raising the KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. , it is standing your head down and legs up, is it jumping from the Aeroplane and having an experience, what is it, after all we just say Cherdi Kala, and we don't explain it.

Cherdi Kala is absolutely nothing, it's a very simple thing, welcome tomorrow and forget yesterday, and welcome tomorrow, with the spirit of perpetual endurance, because God gave you breath of life for tomorrow, and if that breath is true for you, then you should be true to it. Moment you start, welcoming tomorrow, consciously, Ang Sang Wahe Wahe Guru , Whaa-hay Guroo A mantra of ecstasy and dwelling in God. It is the Infinite teacher of the soul.

" will happen everywhere, people are on watch, I have to speak in a high voice, that's okay. I think I am healing so fast, it's becoming difficult now, but anyway,

(Students laugh)

You have to do three things, to get best of your life. Welcome tomorrow truthfully, and be tomorrow today and don't hate your happiness. Moment you become tomorrow, and you become happily for tomorrow, think of tomorrow right now, you are sitting in 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. 's house. Immediately think, just a thought of tomorrow will make you happy. Tomorrow is always happy. Moment you remember perpetually tomorrow, you always will be happy, I know how I survive. My job is 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM, consistent negativity, 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM, a special negativity.

(Students laugh)

And 4:00 AM to 7:00 AM, super special negativity, this is my profession, that's how I live. Hence, couple minutes, couple hours, couple days I meditate and I have my own view, how much garbage I have got, how much cleaning I have to do, it's just like a house cleaning, no special thing about it. But I always know, that God is with me, you know why? Because, He gives me tomorrow and gives me breath of life for tomorrow, it means He remembers me, my time is not up yet. So if my time is not up, and I have a tomorrow I can welcome it and that is Divinity, that is spirituality and that is Cherdi Kala. All those who think of today shall be miserable or who remember yesterday will be super miserable. Now, there's a problem, how to relate to tomorrow? If you welcome tomorrow, you have to build a mind for it, then you have to read words about it, somebody told me, "I don't understand 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. !"

I said, "It's easy."

"How?"

I said "Just read, McAuliffe."

Side B

"Read McAuliffe."

"Can you tell me something."

I said, "Yes, I have read McAuliffe. I can tell you one thing. Read McAuliffe."

(Students laugh)

"But what that will do to me."

I said, "It will waste your time, positively and waste your negativity, that's what McAuliffe does.

I said, "Sikh life of the ten GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's are ten facets and it's very easy, and if you understand the numerology, there are nine main stars, tenth is God, so total life is well balanced. Life starts from zero and merge into one, it makes ten." And I said, "If you understand ten facets of life, there will no problem in your life."

"But can you guide me in any other way?

I said, "Yes, I can guide you."

"What is that?"

I said, "Read McAuliffe quick."

(Students laugh)

"Don't read like a book. Make your own notes, and you will never regret it." Our life and our mental attitude can either have three things or one thing. Three things we require in America is a Psychologist, Psychiatrist and a Counselor. Counselor should walk behind you, Psychiatrist on the right side of you and Psychologist on the left side of you, that's the only way you can survive or, or let yesterday go, let today pass and just welcome tomorrow, with one belief, if God gave you breath of life, God is with you, in return you be with God, and if you cannot see God in all, you cannot see God at all.

The mental status has to be clarified by your will and that's God's will, that's why dear Sikhs of 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. , in Siri GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. GranthGranth Literally: knot: book. and in life, GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's have talked to their own mind to set the rule, so that you can have the capacity and the reality to talk to your own mind, Khalsa, all the time you talk to others and make others to talk to you, please spare some time to talk to your own mind, you love to confront people, confront your own mind, you love to conquer the universe, conquer your own mind.

"Mann Jeetai Jag Jeet."

By conquering the mind you can conquer your own universe, I have corrected myself. If I say, by conquering the mind, you can conquer the universe, people say, 'I don't want a war, I won't conquer anybody,' but you have to conquer yourself. That's the fundamental of the Sikh Religion. That's the reality, we can't ignore. I hope now, Baisakhi is coming, birthday of the Khalsa is coming, we have to prepare for that great grand reception of all the people, we need 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?" , there is a lot negativity is going on, and some people are just exploiting and the victim and the source of that negativity the future of our children, as 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. has gone on a holiday and our children have no future.

Our children have as good a future as one can imagine, think and feel and our parents are as good as good one can be, they are good tenants on this universe and they are paying their rents. So, basically there is a very touchy way of exploiting, parenthood and the childhood of the innocent, but however this Baisakhi has a very special feature to it and I hope the Sangat of Los Angeles will discharge that responsibility of being host and being positive and being graceful as they have done every year.
