Hey, my God what are you crying for? War is in Gulf, not here. Today is a beautiful birthday 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. Badal Singh, fourteen year old, and cookies will be served, Yoga center is coming in to light. Whole life expo. Awakening your mental, physical, and spiritual self, or 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 way, he does it all the time, uh, life is funny, you are something, I will read it in my, keep it we'll read it when we have nothing else to read. Haah, ha. We are going to talk today about heart center. Story of the heart center is very funny. And majority of the time people do not know anything about it. It has some petals, some energy, this and that, that's the science of that, you can read that in books, that I leave it to you, but what is this heart center, and what is this fight between heart and head.

Heart center means, warmth, compassion, passion, kindness, hatred everything which is wonderful in the world and everything which is rotten on the planet, they all come from the heart center. If you set your heart into something, your head will give in, that's why it is the most powerful center and extremely dangerous. On the other hand, this is the only center worth living with, now see to the physical side of it, you have a heart, its electromagnetic field is its own, you can put a pacemaker in it and still you can help it to beat for you. Number two, it pumps the entire blood and nurture your every organ. It is responsible for getting back and supplying your lifeline and it work constantly, till it gets tired and says goodbye.

This center is very enduring. It is made of two parts. One is physical, one is electromagnetic, it is one organ which has its own electromagnetic wavelength and composition. There are million words we say, 'open your heart, I hate you from the very bottom of my heart,' now what you do with that top I don't know. 'My heart goes for you,' there are millions of expression which relate to heart, but still we mess up our life, mostly because of heart, because this center controls passion, anytime passion is not controlled for human intuition, it will bring destruction, it's a law which I can't change, mind you I am not against passion, but ninety percent in your life, your pain comes from passion, not from compassion and ninety percent you have no intuition with your passion.

Passion you must have, and you will have, passion minus intuition is self-destruction, period. There is nothing more to it. It can be so destructive that you will start condemning yourself. Sometime, overleaping passions, overleaping passions, makes a human miseries so magnified, that people have gone lunatic, on this center I can talk for whole year, I know it so well. I remember I was eleven year old when I made a decision with myself. I shall not negate anybody, how it happened, we were doing numerology, just for a joke and there was a book called Numerology something, it was western book and about Virgo it was said they are very critical, Virgo's are critical, negative and enjoys criticism and negativity, but they cover their act very good and under the name of perfection, they are very clever actors.

I read that whole paragraph very well, and I looked at myself, I say I am Virgo, and the other person said, "No, no, you are in the cusp of Leo and Virgo," I said, "Much worst, Leo's are no good either they have lot of claws." Somehow in that discussion I decided, I shall not negate anybody, except, if time permits me to be in the interest of another person. I can assure you it was the most painful decision of my life. I have paid so heavily for it, that you can't believe it, life become a heap of mess, because when you feel negative, to say negative is a release, you feel negative and don't say negative is a stress, and it's such a heavy stress, I think a Saint will crack under it, that means when you read through your negative mindNegative Mind One of the three Functional Minds. It is the fastest and acts to defend you. It asks, "How can this harm me? How can this limit or stop me?" It is also the power to just say no, stop something, or reject a direction of action. which is automatic, which is totally essential, which is give your life, protection in life, the only way you can feel negative and not act under it, if you can chew it and digest it, do you understand that pressure on you.

I was very upset after few days, why I made that promise, so I went to my teacher and I said, "Well! I have something to discuss personally?"

He said, "Wow! What personally with you?'

I said, "Here it goes."

I said, "Well, this is how we were discussing Numerology and this is how came to my mind and this is what I have decided. But damn it," I said, "Sir, it's a very ugly decision, it's not a truth, if you see a truth, you don't say it, that's cowardness."

He laughed, he said, "If say a truth, hurt somebody, saying that truth is worst than a lie."

I said, now our teacher has become a philosopher, what should I do, but I had a problem.

I said, "That's all right, one should never hurt anybody's feeling, but how to relax one's own self." I remember that line, which I always speak, when you see something horrible thank God it is not you, when you see something good, thank God you have something to match up to, just understand a eleven year old kid, still remember those lines. In your life also lot of things will come, which will be truthful and you will know them, but that will be your personal truth. It maybe Geographical truth, it may not be infinite truth and sometime passion and truth can become the biggest anger and extremely destructive.

Passion is wonderful, it moves you, it's delightful, it's life like heart pumps the blood, but it's not true, that passion will remain passion, passion is to go after something, but when your truth mixes with it and that truth tells you, that the other person is wrong or the other person is in your way, other person is destructive, other person is not good news, it creates a consistent blind anger, secondly passion is great to be successful, but when your truth or your insecurity joins it, you become a nagging nonsense, to everybody, because your passion is to succeed and you find certain people not matching up to your passion, and you do not match up with equal compassion, war is on. So right out sixty, seventy percent of your life is useless because of this.

Analyze everything in your life, you will find it was your passion, your insecurity, your anger, your not availability of intuitive tomorrow, you are not complete seeing the whole picture, your non universality, which brought you the pain. I am in pain, very much, more than you, all of you, I sufferer every part of it, I suffer like a lunatic and crazy put together, I know it, I feel it, it's extremely haunting and uncomfortable, you will ask me, 'you are 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. Bhajan, what is wrong with you?' Everything is wrong, because at first sight I can see the wrong, second is to think how to say it, third is to decide to say it or not, fourth is to decide to say it to elevate the other person. Now I have a professional duty to elevate anybody I touch, see and feel, that's my profession.

I have a tragedy, if I can know the root of the situation with the other person, beyond time, in seconds and third is I have to have a tolerance, and you know what tolerance is? It is couple tons of weight. Tolerance is not a joke folks. The heaviest thing on the planet under metals is called platinum, I say, wrong, the heaviest thing on the human mind is human tolerance. If you are in status of tolerance and you don't enjoy it, you will go insane fast, physically it keep you, it eat your parasympathetic out, mentally it will make a rat out of you and spiritually you will become extremely a Hermit, that is the price of tolerance a person has to pay, then what is the easy way? Easy way is to have fun.

The easy way is don't tolerate, enjoy it, it is not you, if you do not at that time glorify yourself and feel happy with that negativity which comes from other, that it is not you, you got it, there is no medicine which can cure you, there is no chance that you can smile in life, you will be scared of everybody, you will be unhappy on everyday, you will be miserable every night, you shall have nightmares and you think your negativities can be shut up, it's not possible, it is mind, the negative mindNegative Mind One of the three Functional Minds. It is the fastest and acts to defend you. It asks, "How can this harm me? How can this limit or stop me?" It is also the power to just say no, stop something, or reject a direction of action. feels it, you conclude it, you are sure of it, it become your personal truth, in our Sikh prayer we say,

"Jinna veik ki andett githa."

Those who have seen and still unseen it, for their great labor say, "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. " look at it, it's one of the highest praise, you see something then how you can make it that you have not seen it, you have seen it in some. If a Doctor sees cancer in somebody, he doesn't become the cancer himself, he sees it, either he can remedy it or he can advise it or he can ignore it or he can be grateful, he doesn't have it. The highest status which a man can enjoy in a human life is self compassion. I am not asking you to be compassionate to others, I am asking you folks to be compassionate to yourself, this is the last thing a person has ever learnt, key to happiness, gate to happiness is self compassion.

If you have this misunderstanding that you should be compassionate to other, you are fooling yourself, compassion does not mean anything to others, that is your drama, it is your act and it's meant for you, be extremely compassionate to yourself and not indulge in unnecessary nuisance and tax your nerves, your mind and your life, do you understand what I am saying. Does it make sense, there is no school, class, or college, for it, nobody talks about it. People say, 'have, have compassion,' that means have compassion for somebody who is not, do you understand what I mean, it's now it's a common thing, 'have compassion, be compassionate, what are you trying to do,' it's the most stupid thing to do, if you ever want to be compassionate, be compassionate to yourself, others can handle their life, it is your life, and you are supposed to handle and that is called Divinity of God. Am I speaking good in my nose, I am practicing for two weeks now, I maybe after six weeks, when I am totally healed, I may end up speaking it, but...

(Students laugh)

It's funny. First of all from last two weeks nobody recognized me on the telephone, even I explained my identity say, 'what, what is wrong, what has happened,' I have to explain couple minutes, that, that's what it is, plus I am compassionate to myself, lastly what made me to decide to speak like this, is to heal myself urgently, first of all there is no way out, except this, secondly, I looked at myself, I know so much, if nothing else, I can speak it out or record it, sometime in the future, it will be useful for mankind. In your total behavior as human being, you have learned one thing, to be compassionate, every religion teaches it and they openly teach it, be compassionate to others, a deadly mistake, be servicefull to others, be kind to others, but always be compassionate to yourself, be good to others, be helpful to others, be friendly to others, all adjectives are all right, but never be compassionate to anybody, when you are not compassionate yourself, you are totally hypocrite, there is absolutely no way to describe hypocrisy.

Hipocrisy, hypocrisy, is the English, English, American pronunciation is hipocrisy, have you heard the word, hipocrisy, what is your meaning, that mean when you are not real or you are pretending to be real when you were not real, it will happen only when you are not compassionate to yourself, because, the fourth center guarantees to be compassionate either to yourself or passionate yourself, it does not allow this for anybody else, you can be passionate towards somebody and project with your intuition or with your acts, but you have to be passionate yourself other part of the coin is to be compassionate, passion and compassion are two sides of the same coin, and they are for the self, I am passionately in love of myself, if I am not passionately in love of myself I cannot or I shall not love anybody truly or otherwise or the hypocrite, if I am not compassionate to myself I will understand nothing, period. Don't worry I am a PhD, or an MD, or I am JD, or I am this, this, this, these are all book knowledge.

In behavior, you shall not understand other person feeling accurately, intuitively if you are not compassionate to yourself, period. Your friendship won't last, your relationship won't last, your other marriage this, that, won't last, because if you do not have passion for life, and compassion for the self, you do not know what the damn life is. Don't bother, yes, yes, we can talk, we can play games, we can use words, we can be diplomatic, there are manners you can get by, but just remember language of the heart can be read at the face, whatever is in your heart must show up on the face, and on that nobody has the control, you can lie, fine, and other person cannot reach 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. it's okay. But what is in your heart, your force, you will forced to show it through your face and that you cannot hide or let us go to the electromagnetic field area of the heart, what do they call that thing, here, which gives the heart to pump?

Students: (----------)

YB: Pacemaker is the instrument, but the otherwise when there is no pacemaker, what is here?

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

YB: In the heart.

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

YB: Yeah, that low, if your electromagnetic field is not totally with you, the other person will say like this, watch me.

"You know, I talked to George! Uh, uh, he totally convinced me, he's right, but I do not know something doesn't feel good." You know what I mean, you are convinced, everything is set, it's beautiful, and you dare not change it either, but something, little voice is telling you, there is something wrong. The frequency of the electromagnetic field has not created a psychic effect on the electromagnetic field of the other person and because there is a gap, therefore, you are convincingly still unconvinced. You are convinced, if you really want to look at it, when I used to, used to live in this Hollywood, once I was counseling somebody, and these two guys were in love like dove and whole thing, they used to come to Yoga class, God, pooch, pooch, pooch, pooch, all the time. One day, I told them, when they kiss each other, they should out a some blanket, because they passionate the whole class, it's too much of a scene. They should do it, it's fine, so we discussed it, that they can do it outside, they can do it in the alley, they can do it at the other furniture stores, from the side, they can do everything, but when I am teaching, they should not leap on each other and kiss.

(Students laugh)

They used to do it all the time. It was such a kiss thing going on, between those two, we never knew what to do. So, you know all of a sudden the lady said, "I love him, I will die for him, he kisses me, I don't mind, but there is something wrong."

I said, "Wait a minute. How there can be anything wrong between you two? If this thing continues in six month you both won't have lips."

(Students laugh)

It's too much. I mean to say, the moment they get out of the car, they will tangle with each other and kiss and this, and that then, he will talk and leaning on her and it's the whole thing. But sometime when there were in group, in the middle of good Yoga class, will rest and this goes, (?).

(Students laugh)

It means the class was good.

I said, "No, no, nothing is wrong with you guys, you are fine, keep it, don't bother." Four day's later, I had a appointment with her, so she came at noon time, noon time I used to sit at the Yoga center, there was never used to be anything, sometime I will sleep, and I used to watch, Siri SimranSimran A deep meditative process in which the naam of the Infinite is remembered and dwelled in without conscious effort. letters, and sometime all sleep and eat there and sit there, some people will come, some won't come, but this was appointment.

She 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. ," exact I am telling you what it happened, 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. , tell me something, do you see something, which I have not seen."

I said, "No, I see him kissing all the time, and you kiss him so heavily, that's all we see."

She said, "No, no, no, no please, don't you feel he is overcompensating."

I said, "What's wrong in overcompensating in kisses, it's all fine."

She said, "No, in my heart of heart, I have nobody to talk to, that's why I have come to see you."

She said, "My heart of heart, in my depth, I feel there is something wrong, and you are not telling me," it was direct acquisition.

I said, "I looked you are true lovers, it's one of the greatest sin to come in between two lovers. Second sin is to discuss love and the degree of it. Third is to sit judgment on it, these are three unforgivable sins. To interfere between two lovers, to judge their love."

I said, "I can't do it."

She said, "No, let us talk as a teacher and a student."

I said, "Here it goes."

(Students laugh)

I said, "What do you say?"

She said, "I think you know everything."

I said, "I know nothing, that's the only thing I know. Because, I know nothing therefore I know something. Something concerning some thing's that's all."

She said, "Aren't you are perfect being."

I said, "Who told you that? Perfect being are all dead, I am still alive, moment I'll become perfect, I will be dead on the spot. Our life is a 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. to be here, to perfect ourself out of the imperfections, through our experience."

She said, "That's a philosophy. But please now tell me, I am your daughter."

There she changed to the Oriental language.

"I am your daughter, tell me what is wrong?"

I said, "There is nothing wrong, but there is a one little thing."

(Students laugh)

I said, "Too much sun, too much rain, too much silence, too much talk, too much of everything is too much. This over kissing is too much and it is finding an compensation for something, I can tell you, if you don't ask me second question about it."

She said, "Okay, I agree it."

I said, "Raise your right hand, take an oath."

So, she did.

I said, "This man of yours, was in love with a woman who had exactly your tendencies and features and your frequency, but not your shape, and he is so insecure and happy to find that frequency, he want to touch you, and I think you are the biggest kisser in the world yourself."

She said, "That's true."

He said, "Well, he has found your weakness, that's all."

She said, "I have got another question?"

I said, "No, that's the agreement. No further question, that's it. Within the framework of my profession," I said, "I can just say a little, I am not going to interfere, I am not going to judge it , I am not going to direct it." So, a month passed by, and one day they both came to 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. , I was sitting down, I was, I think half sleep, half awake, and the man, I just felt somebody is massaging my feet and all that stuff, when I looked at he is the man, and she was sitting by the side.

I said, "What you are both up to?"

He said, "How you know, that before this I was in love with a girl, she didn't have a face like this, she but, she totally in my heart, it is she and I think she is my soul mate."

I said, "Forget this nonsense, soul mate, classmate, this mate, that mate, you mate with her every night, I don't bother about it, but now, don't lay this on me."

I said, "Birds and animals have mating season, man has been mating every time, so, you mate too much to, but it will cool down after a while."

And I said, "To be very frank, I don't believe in this soul mate business, because to me soul mate, classmate, omelet, it's same thing."

(Students laugh)

"It's just a and I mean it's a overwhelming, overwhelming, you know, when you want to overwhelm somebody, you say, 'you are my soul mate you know,' so there is no logic, there is no reason, there is no argument, there is no understanding, it's simple thing."

He said, "I want to know, how you know?"

I said, "Son, massage my feet quite a bit, I will tell you later."

(Students laughs)

"In the meanwhile I am lying down and resting and thinking," because I couldn't, I did not know what to say, when I realized my mistake, they say, if you want to hear something in the universe, tell to a woman. So I have told her, but she must have taken a month to tell him, and she must have got him confessed, so what to say now? If I say it doesn't mean anything, they will say, I am just, freaky about it, if I make it a little more, they are going to think deeply and this kissing business will go off. I don't want to interfere, so, after a while I found out the answer.

I said, "You truly know to love each other, but you have not found the roots, find out the source, where this love is springing, you are seeing the river, you are seeing the ocean of it, you are seeing in the waves and everything, find out the root cause of this love."

I explained it to you, they have four children, they are happily married and everything is fine, but it took them, four years to find the root, then after that they got married, and touchwood, they are fine.

Normally marriage doesn't last, because if you do not find the root of your passion and your compassion, you can never find yourself. You have to find your own root, the very source of your passion, the very source of your compassion, if you want to find yourself, therefore heart center is very important, I am going to do little 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. , with you, can I, uh, should we do the first difficult one or the easy one.

Students: (-------------)

YB: Uh, which one you want?

Students: (-----------)

YB: Okay you ask for it, everybody agrees.

Students: (----------------)

YB: What's gone wrong with you guys? No, no, we will do it tomorrow, let us be somewhere, nice today, we are in good mood right. Please, sit on your heels, yeah, yeah, and you know when you, what is this?

(Students laughs)

What went wrong?

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

YB: I was told you have left 4:00 PM,

Student: (------)

YB: You must be in love.

Students: (---------------)

YB: All right, sit on your heels and you know, when you do like this, see my movement, like this, you fly, you understand, the flying of that northern duck, that's how our wings, now this how our wings, goes not like this, this is swimming, there is a difference between that and this, just, just like this.

The heart automatically don't do it intentionally, the beauty of this is it will (?), which you have never experienced before, just do this, don't hit anybody's face but, thank God we have big space, concentrate at the tip of your nose, and pull your hands like this, stretch it out and keep going, and each time pull 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. the third center. Humee Hum Brahm Hum, it will be quite experience after a couple of minutes, don't worry.

(Tape, "Humee Hum Brahm Hum..." is played)

Side B

(Tape, "Humee Hum Brahm Hum..." continues)

(Tape stops)

Inhale, relax, all right sit down and relax, relax, we are not gong to do anything more, forget it, you are getting into it for nothing. Tomorrow, come to this class, bring two apples for yourself, and two for somebody, who will come to this class doesn't have it. Tomorrow we will do the real exercise, all right, okay, I mean it. Apple is considered the fruit of the heart, there is a long story, it was the passion of the God, to grow apple fruit actually it was a Fig fruit, it was not a apple tree, but it's considered to be apple. From Adam and Eve, apple has been attached to you, though the tree was a Fig tree, that's why all the nude statues have Fig somewhere, Fig leaf.

(Students laugh)

And fruit was Fig to fruit, in the garden of Eden, not the apple tree, and funny part is today, if you take Fig, and inject in it the Saffron, it won't work in anything else, but if you take a good Fig, inject in it, with a syringe actually, a Saffron and keep them in the refrigerator, eat one or two a day, you will find out the story of garden of Eden was true, I don't want to give you the detail. You know what I mean? I have certain limitation, when I sit here, so forgive me for those limitations, but I am just explaining it to you, if you take Fig, and soak Saffron and milk at night and give it a chance to totally become part of the milk and milk has that golden yellow Saffron color, take that concentrated milk, with a lot of Saffron, concentrated Saffron, make that kind of thing, take and put it in a Fig, let that Fig be in a freezer or freezer refrigerator for about seventy-two hours, fig will be ready, then you eat that Fig, it will take you to the garden of Eden, before eating the apple.

It's a very funny fruit, and at what time we all ate, it is nurturing, it is nursing, it is very arousing, and it's good, but basically apple is the fruit of heart, maybe it has more Iron in it, maybe any story, God knows what they think about it, but apple is the fruit of heart, it goes with this exercise which you are doing tomorrow, so please bring two apples, for you, and be compassionate to you, you can see somebody else having coming to the class and not having an apple, so this will make you the giver, I don't know who is going to come tomorrow, who is going to not, so, bring, back tomorrow two apples and some apples to spare to share, and if you are very compassionate to yourself bring apple pie.

(Students laughs)

And if you are very kind to yourself, go tonight, and drink apple juice, and tomorrow, drink as much apple juice you can tolerate, then come to the class tomorrow night, we will give you a class and you will enjoy it, agreed, if you don't agree it's fine. I have been given a paper on philosophies of religion, but unfortunately I cannot repeat it, but I think these kind of, these days, because of war, these kind of papers are very much in circulation, so if your lucky to get the philosophy of all religions, please read it and enjoy it, as I have enjoyed it, that's the only secret news I want to give it to you, or why, you might be worried or thinking why I was laughing all of a sudden, I was reading that news bulletin, where is the birthday boy?

(Students laugh)

That's a natural thing, he can listen in the bathroom, right, so we have to wait for him to come out of the private room and wish him a happy birthday, so we can be entitled to cookies. Hello! Come here, come, come.

(Students laugh)

All right let us finish the prayer for the peace, then we will do that for him. Please concentrate and consolidate your being in anyway, like and form you want to pray for the people and wants to bring the war to end up peaceful thing, please pray with me.
