Subject which I will like to discuss today is historical. It's not only historical in the sense that you have to understand it, it is historical in the sense that your life will be wasteful if you don't understand it. Period. How good a Sikh you are, it will mean actually and factually nothing if you don't understand what I am talking today. I don't want you to feel impressed what I am saying is very important but there is almost fifty years of constant communication between me and my DharmaDharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. . So I have a edge over you, though it's not Sikh like to saying to people I have edge over you. But what's wrong with that? I have edge over you and I have it. Why not to say it? So I have edge over you because I have put my fifty years to find a solution to something which I have found and I want to share with you in the light 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. and that's what I am trying to make you very practical.

There are eight major religions. Eight major religions in one way another have one propaganda. I am using the word propaganda because it is a lie which every religion uses and lie in every religion is that 'we'll give you God, give us the money.' That's the straight relationship. Whether it is a Christianity or it is a Judaism or it's a Sikh Dharm or it's everything, money makes the mare go, they want the money. That's why 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 Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. Gobind SinghGuru Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. was very straight, he knew that money has to be given, so he said, "Give one-tenth, it doesn't belong to you.' Period. One-tenth what you earn, doesn't... Like income tax. We work three months for the government, whether we like it or not, if we don't like it and we cheat on it they put us in jail, period.

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 Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. Gobind SinghGuru Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. was the very straight honest kind of a man, he said, "One-tenth of your money doesn't belong to you, period. It belongs 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. and it can be only used for 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 purposes," so money problem he solved.

So that lie has to stop which other religions have to use to get people because you must understand the difference between a Sikh Sikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. DharmaSikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. Dharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. and the Sikh Khalsa is Sikh Sikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. DharmaSikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. Dharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. is a religion, Khalsa is not a religion. Khalsa is a living identity, 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. could not do public relation, it's not a religion of quantity, it's a religion of quality and there are total twenty two religions. Eight major in which Sikh Sikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. DharmaSikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. Dharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. comes almost on the border line. Relationship is 'Para Paar Brahm Parameshwar,' that Infinite of the Infinite of the Infinite God. So basically let us cut it short. What's the relationship with a man, the finite and the Infinity, the God. That's what I will bring down to and for that, for centuries we have been put into a rigmarole and yoyo, God cannot be reached, If God cannot be reached, then hell with it.

What we want out of something which we cannot reach? If my religion tell me, "Today we cannot reach God," I say, "Go to hell, I don't need this religion." I'll find something where I can reach. Simple as that. If God cannot be reached, God cannot be spoken, God cannot be told, God cannot be... If there is any condition between a man and God, then that religion is not right. It may be a Sikh Sikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. DharmaSikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. Dharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. . Because what is the purpose of a religion? What is the purpose of going to a university or a college? To become graduate. What is the purpose of following religion? To realize. Then fifty solid years I have heard lot of people. None of you sitting here even can understand I have met more religious or they have met me, vice versa, than even you can even count, on religion basis, either they have met me or I have met them, one way or the other. I have dialogued them and within those fifty years I have seen religion is also a business not very well conducted, including Sikh Sikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. DharmaSikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. Dharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. .

I know when I am going to die your books are going to mess up. So long I am alive, they are not going to mess up because I don't let them. I am very strict. One thing I am very strict and God bless ShaktiShakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. , period and other people. I just want to keep things just as they should be and there is no excuse on that ground. Everybody knows. Everything else is a tolerance, compassion, kindness, blah, blah, blah. But;

'Liktamake baktam koi nahi.'

'Whatever you write you write correct.'

And figures are going to figure out a person and figures are not going to be wrong. Doesn't matter what it takes. Period.

All right, but when I'll be gone I do not know what you are going to do with but one thing I tell you in this country when I entered they told me if ever they will hit us hard, they will hit us on many ways but one thing they hit is on our books, account books. Because they are written by you, so there is nothing you can lie about. It's not my word against your word, it is your word against you. So be careful when the books are to be looked into. However, that's, that's that but what is a God that 'Para Paar Brahm Parameshwar,' and why we are being cheated on that account?

Let me tell you simply what I have realized. I didn't realize by meditating hundred years, I just, I just wanted to get up, get ready to come here and all came when I was taking a shower. So you can understand how fast my mind is working psychically these days. Between entry... I just wanted to have another shower to come here to get ready and I know I have to speak. So when I entered the shower, the cold water hit me on my face I knew it all and I said, "This is what I am going to share with my people." That's how I, how fast (?). This, what is this Infinity and God we are talking about and what is this man, the sinner, the ugly, born in a sin and all that nonsense and why we are wrong and God is right? You know what a lie it is, on one hand everything is God, on other hand we are wrong and God is right? What, who, who will buy this nonsense? Now tell me who stupid is even here who can buy this? If everything is God then stupid as we are, we are God, we don't accept it. On the other hand we say everything is all right, everything is all right. 'Jis Hath Jor Karve Ke Soi,' I mean, I am quoting GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. . 'Jis Hath Jor Karve Ke Soi, Nanak Uttam Neech Na Koi.' On the other hand we say, 'I am wrong, I am in (?), please forgive me, I am sinner, I am born in sin, I am dying in sin.' I mean, what the nonsense is that? What kind of spiritual it is that? And then I am relating to it 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 Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. Gobind SinghGuru Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. did is to pull us out of all this garbage. That is what this Khalsa is about.

Dharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. religion can you live in doubt and... Some people have no time to come to GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. , they are busy. You know, there are some people who are physically here, mentally here but their spirit is not into it. Minus spirit when you are spiritually do not give priority to Infinity. Now watch my these words, when spiritually you do not give priority to Infinity you are not religious, period. You are a hypocrite, an actor and you are wasting your time till your death and you are digging a thing in which you are going to lay in it. I don't care you are a Sikh or not, you are a Christian or not, you are Jew or not, you are Hindu or not, I tell you rest is a commercial garbage.

Hope and it's nothing wrong to give hope to the hopeless. This is very good. And there is nothing wrong to have a hope against hopelessness. That's compassion, that's kindness. That's all right but this mental insincerity and physical corruption in the sense that you can't relate to reality in the sense that you do not give priority to Infinity in everything and everything you think, do or going to do, is a spiritual garbage. You have no favor to God, God has no favor to you. God created you, you got created, when your creation will, time period of your creation will finish, either you will be burnt alive and get to be ash or dust to dust, you'll put in a box and put in, that's the end of you. There is nothing behind that, let's be sincere about it. Then what we are talking about?

We are talking about ego.

'Homme Vadda Rog Hai Daaru Beis Samaye.'

Ego is the biggest disease and it is the only solution.'

You have to put your ego before anything to subject yourself to Infinity. Infinity and anarchy are two different things. Anarchy is your confusion taking the spirit of a reality. Infinity is a unconfused state of mind which is ultimate reality of yours and of everybody. The problem is this everybody. We are not willing to tolerate everybody.

In three and a half million year this animal called man or a woman included, equal rights man or woman, normally man contains woman, in English spoken, not otherwise. Otherwise they are different in structure.

This man animal, this two-legged, stupid animal has not accepted all. As this animal stupid has not accepted all, it cannot accept one. Simple. So go ahead, Hallelujah, go become Christian, Jew, Sikh, everything, do everything. You are as useless as you started three and a half million year ago and you may continue to be as useless three and a half million hereafter. But remember one thing; the religion is not a hustle, hassle, it is a matter of priority. If your character has the property to give priority to Infinity, you have to include all.

I'll accept a mosquito and President Regan with the same drishti, with the same reverence to life.

If I can differentiate between a mosquito which will give me malaria and a president which can give me a star of congress as a person, then still the pair of the opposite affecting me, it means I am a incomplete person and that's what this 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. says. Those of you who came this morning and those of you who bowed to him, you acknowledged this that you accept this verdict, this judgment, this confidence. (There is a bell sound). Now the bell has confirmed it, so be it.

Because these days when I am on my last mile of life, I am not 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. by profession, I am not 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. by conception, I am not 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. by name, I am 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. by experience. And I tell you, it is a hard fifty years and fifty years of that of a test and trial. Life is test and trial, wavelength, we call it vibes. Good and bad. But GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. , 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 totally take us out in one line;

'Ketia Dookh Bukh Sad Maar Eh Bhe Daat Teree Daataar.'

One line; Ketia Dookh Bukh Sad Maar, if there is a hunger and there is a pain and there is a hundred thousand time, God, it's Thy gift. No, nobody is to be blamed. But is there anybody here sitting today who calls himself a Sikh and who tells me that you don't blame others for your mistakes and your wrongs and your problems?

None. Not only you blame you claim vengeance. This is how you act. That's your normal behaviour. You claim that you have been harmed, therefore you blame and then you waste your life for vengeance and vengeance need two things - stupidity and anger. So you are a confirmed stupid when you are angry. I mean, is there anybody who can, who has done better PhD than me in psychology who can tell me otherwise? And why we become angry? We become angry when we cannot handle something logically and reasonably and we do not have a hope. We lose three things first to become angry and some people are born angry.

I was asking somebody, I said, "What is your anger?"

"My father did this to me."

I said, "Your father did this. Then what big deal? At least your father did it you don't have to do the same thing to yourself."

"I am going to find peace of mind here."

I said, "You find peace of..."

Now look how stupid this statement is, 'I am going to find my peace of mind here.' How can you find peace of mind anywhere until you do not find peace of mind in your own mind? Is that peace of mind can be found anywhere other than your own mind? Is it not one of the most false statement ever a man has made?

"Ha, I have a such a tranquility in this relationship."

I just cracked up. "Ha, ha, ha," I said. I didn't say the person stupid because you have to have Sarbat Daa Bhalaa, you know, you have to say good things and professionally I am required to say good things. Then I laughed, I brought it to a humor.

He said, "Why you served me and now why you are saying this like?"

I said, "I am just saying because I, I personally feel, I personally feel that you are very ungrown child of God, ungrown child of God. You are just into the roots of your life. You have not sprouted, you have not blossomed, you have not seen what I am saying to you. I have seen the seen and the unseen and there are lot of seen I can relate called stories."

Dharmic stories are unseen scenes about spirituality where you give the moral message to a stupid person. That's what stories are about. But I said, "You are not grown up," because you cannot find peace other than in the piece of your mind and your mind have many pieces, they have to all put together. You understand what I am coming from? And your mind should be governed by the spirit. Your spirit should be here, you are here, physically agreed, you are here, mentally agreed, you are not here spiritually. If you are here spiritually, then Infinity must have priority on your royalty, on your kingdom, on your majesty, on yourself. When yourself is subjected by your habit, by your thought form and by your totality of activity that you will give priority to Infinity and you shall include all, you will see what is called harmony and that's what peace of mind is. So long, I, you and Thou exist, this trinity, we are all confused.

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. took, took this Infinity as Ek Ong Kar, one Creator of this creation or you can say it with a force, there is but one Creator of this creation. Then if there is a but one Creator of this creation who the hell you are differentiating with? Give me a break. Come on, you nutsy western super minds, what are you talking about? You don't even have time to think what you talk sometime. You just say things because it requires the flow of communication and flow of time and you think people are so stupid. I tell you how people think. People think they listen something, they go back home and they chew it. Mostly they forget what they have heard. But whatever they hear, one or two lines then they chew it and that's called goodwill incredibility. If when they chew they cannot digest what you say, you are dead wrong. It doesn't matter what a gospel truth you have said. That's why I am talking straight to you to understand Sikh religion. If you are telling me in Sikh religion there are no hypocrites and they are not people who lie and there is no politic Sikh religion, I tell you something today very funny.

There was a opportunity with Sikh Dharm, that ten million people would have become Sikh in one day. Ten million people would have become Sikh in one day. Then the people in Punjab decided these ten million people are going to become Sikh outside Punjab but they will have right to the Gurdwaras and they will be in majority. But you know what they did? They blew it. They didn't let those people become Sikhs. You understand what I am saying?

In religion also people want to control. The most stupid man in the religious world is who wants to control without religious wisdom. It doesn't work. The problem... Why people are not too much in the religion? You want to know why? Why people avoid religion, why not? Because in religion you cannot be religion and stupid at the same time. It doesn't work that way. In religion you really need real guts. Real guts for what? To include all.

I talked this morning to three most stupid self destructive people. One thing I learnt, God spoke to me through them. You know what I talked to myself? I said, "These people are sticking to their grounds and I am going to stick to my grounds." And their ground is, 'me, I' and my ground is 'us, we.' You understand that? Sikh Dharm is a definite criteria. Sikh Dharm does not have a chance for not including all. It starts with one word Ek Ong Kar SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Gurprasad. 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 blessing is that all is one Creator's creation, accept it. After accepting it then you cannot say, 'I accept this part of it and that part I won't.' You have to accept total. You have to accept white, black, yellow, pink, red, brown, good, bad, ugly, nonsense. You have to accept all and that is where Sikh Dharm starts and then 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 Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. Gobind SinghGuru Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. did another very fantastic thing.

'Jab lag Khalsa rehey niaaraa

Tab lag tej dee-o mein saaraa

Jab eh ga-eh bipran dee reet

Thou na karon en kee parteet.'

Something like that. That was a solid Divine hit to let you know that you have to be exclusive, not exclusive that you are a exclusive you know special born or something like the Jews think, they are special people and Christian think the whole world is them and anything else is zero. That's not exclusive that way. You have to be exclusively, understandingly and totally accepting all. That exclusiveness is there. That special self that you shall accept good and bad as a Sikh with the light of you, you can do it. I challenge you. You have to only one way out, you accept good and bad in the light and the eyes and the feelings and understanding that 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. is in you. As you, you can't do it. That's why you are half-Sikh one-third Sikh, one-tenth Sikh or whatever you are. Some of you are not even looking like Sikh, some you can look great Sikh. You look great Sikh or you look half Sikh, doesn't matter to me.

You have one thing to understand once for all. No man is powerful enough or strong enough to let his ego go. Until he does not surrender the ego 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. 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. must sit in, man must sit out. You know who sits out? The servant. Who sits in? The master. 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. become your master. That's why every Sikh who says himself so SevadarSevadar One who does seva. becomes a controlling factor, that's why everywhere we are fighting. There is no real SevadarSevadar One who does seva. , they are all bunch of liars. If you have to serve, then you serve all. As a Sikh you serve all, you serve bad, you serve good, you serve dirty, you serve ugly, you serve beautiful. But with beautiful, you don't say ha, ha, ha, it's great. I am telling you where I started. When your mind comes to the feeling, the difference between meeting a mosquito and meeting President Regan doesn't make any difference in you. Though mosquito can give you malaria and President could give you an award, I am not saying that gain is not there. So long as a Sikh you are looking for gain and loss you are a stupid insult 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. , period. That's what it is. Because you are fundamentally against 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. . You are a living insult to the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru.

That's not true. You say purity belong to me and victory belongs to me and defeat belongs to you. Now who the hell is going to accept you as a Sikh of the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru.

Somebody was discussing with me this morning, he said, "Beard was only given to us because 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. wanted to raise an army," and this guy is a Sikh and he is a PhD. His great grandfather was Sikh, his father was Sikh and even he has the guts to tell me this morning and I said, "Why don't you do something, ask God not to grow it. He didn't grow woman beard."

He said, "Well, you know, you are a God's man, why don't you tell God?"

I said, "I don't want to tell Him. I think whatever He did, He did it right."

God did it right and once for all, when we accept all and we accept God, I have no reason to shave my beard. First of all, I didn't apply to God to give me my beard. You understand what I mean? I was very straight and honest, right. No it didn't grow when I was born, right? It grew when I grew and now what should I say, throw it away? If I cannot handle my own face which is given to me by God, how can I be a God's face? That's what Mool 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. says. Akal Moorat, Ajooni, Saibhung, Gurprasad, there is no lying. It is straight. It's as straight as the truth can be.

You know, funny part is, I went to see a nurse. She works in my doctor's office and she was that way kind of shaky and she wanted me to be 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. to help her.

I said, "Ha, ha what I can do for you?"

She said, "My husband is not good with me, anymore. I did a wonderful stupid thing."

I said, "Go ahead, what was it?"

She said, "I cut my hair."

I said, "Yeah, you had a long beautiful hair you cut them."

She said, "I couldn't manage them."

I said, "Look, you couldn't manage hair now you cannot manage your husband. One way or the other, time is wasted the same."

She said, "Yeah I was wrong. But how long the hairs grow?"

I said, "In your case it will take a year and two."

"Why in my hair that much?"

"You never cut them, you had them from the day one."

"So you mean to say, if my husband remain upset year and a half, God, it's going to be a divorce."

I said, "Looks like."

You know what her husband had done? He has asked her to resign, not to work, sit home and grow her hair, otherwise she is out of the house. You believe me? And that's what we do with God too. We disturb God so bad that He does not relate to us. He says, 'all right this stupid guy can just pass in time on the earth, when he get into the pit called,' what you call that thing? That six foot by four foot thing in a box.

Student: Coffin.

YB: Grave. When your life is gray it can only end up in a grave and then after what?

There are three ways to live - bright, dark and gray. You have to decide if 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. is in you, in you and has priority over you 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. is the master, 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. words sit in your heart and rules your destiny, you made it. I am not promising you that you'll have no pain. No. Pain will be there but it won't hurt you. It will hurt 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. , let 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. handle it. Where comes the hurt? Hurt comes from the ego. When I am insecure, my totality is insecure, my 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. is insecure, my God is insecure. I represent trinity. I represent Infinity. I represent God and when we have a stupid representative what people will think of the one who is being represented? You send a bad salesman, how much sales you are going to make?

That is why 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 Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. Gobind SinghGuru Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. words are very true.

It's a funny story and after that I will quit. And the story is, there was a king. He got in what, inaugurated to be a king, what they do to the king?

Students: Coronation.

YB: Gave him incarnate, gave him the authority and all, put him a robe around him, put a crown on him and the whole thing and 'you are the king.' Now you know and king was very weird. He asked the Grand Vizier. He said, "Today I am king."

He said, "Yes."

He said, "What I can do?"

He said, "My Lord, you can command everything."

He said, "You too?"

He said, "Yeah, you tell me what to do, I'll do."

He said, "Everything?"

He said, "Yes everything."

He said, "Can I command my constipation to go away?"

He said, "No."

(Students laugh)

"That's not true."

He said, "What is the idea being king then? Inside me I am bloated, outside you are telling me that everything I can command. Now look to me I am telling you that I have not gone to answer the call of God from last two days. I am in pain."

He said, "Sir, for that there is a different treatment. As a king you have control on all things, all subject and everybody."

He said, "Suppose I tell everybody not to be constipated, what they will do?"

He said, "Well, they will take laxative. Obey your orders, they have no right."

"What right I have got?"

He said, "You can kill them, who disobeys you."

He said, "Should I kill myself that I am disobeying myself."

I (He) said, "Lord, that's your option."

Grand Vizier thought that, 'This young king is very questioning and he'll waste most of my time,' and so what he got is, he caught up a saintly man to educate him and be in his company, company of the holy. He might have read 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. but in those days I tell you, 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. came later into existence, it was unknown. Known and unknown two stages were there. So anyway.

So this king will ask all the time questions and one day he ordered the holy man, "You will sleep under my bed."

He said, "My Lord, why?"

He said, "I don't want my wife to know where are you? But when I question I want you to answer."

Holy man couldn't take it. He left. King got very upset. He called the Grand Vizier. He said, "What kind of a holy man is that, I ordered him he left?"

He said, "Because he is too holy."

So the king decided in his own option that 'today onward he should agree to nothing.'

You know it is called frustration. You try to understand. Frustration when caught up with depression you become totally insane and you never know about it. That's the problem of frustration. It immune you from reality and your beliefs of non reality becomes your guiding force and that's where you err and that's we have reached to the point, we say, 'Err is human, therefore it doesn't matter.' No it does matter.

However, this king raise the country and the army and the strength and the force to the effect of Infinity. He send message to everybody. 'Do you surrender or you fight?' Everybody surrendered, nobody wanted to fight. Everybody knew that what he has done is impossible to fight.

Life went by, but his emptiness did not go. Finally like the Mogul emperor who wanted 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. Teg Bahadur. 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. Teg Bahadur went himself. He told him that, 'Truth is truth, life and death doesn't mean a thing.'

Fact is life and death doesn't mean anything but some people are very ineffective Sikhs.

Five weeks ago or six weeks ago, we knew that when a government receives a Jethadar of Akal Takhat, it's a bait and we took that bait and today we are going to lose almost five hundred to thousand Sikhs because blind leadership can lead to death.

Today we are in pain, today we are sad, today again government has encircled the Golden Temple. But this time government is not totally blamed. Today our Sikh leadership is blamed. Who, not only did something right but wrong to the extent invited meeting and tell everybody to come in. We have given a chance to get our own people killed.

Today this morning I was talking to somebody and he said, "Yogiji, Singh Sahib, you told me."

I said, "I did tell you that and I also tell you to tell the whole world and I told the whole world I knew, nobody listens."

Because we believe in that undestructible MayaMaya The creative power of the Creator that restricts and limits. It creates the sense of limitation that leads us to identify with experience, the ego, and things. Because of this it is often thought of as the illusion that blocks us from the spirit. But, as Guru Nanak (see Sikh Gurus) reminds us, you need not be attached to the productions of maya. Instead they can be used to serve and express the higher consciousness and spirit. Maya is simply Karta Purkh, the doing of the Great Being. Maya takes the ineffable into the realm of the measurable. because we do not believe 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. is our guide, our guidance and our strength. We always have followed men of stupid quality and it is very easy to understand who is stupid or not, whosoever talks 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 is not stupid. Who will talk and add his personal self is a stupid. For us, it is very easy to know.

Today we are being put into a circle of death and look, I want to tell you tomorrow God knows I will not be alive and you may have the same situation. This man was received by the governor who has been responsible traditionally to know to kill people, received him and brought him. You understand the bait? And this man invited every Sikh to come in and then they encircled. Now you know what favor they are going to do to the Sikhs? They say, "We are not storming in. We are only killing them one by one."

The mighty king also became stupidly egomaniac, raised the entire army, conquered the whole world, looked around, 'Is there any like me?'

Grand Vizier said, "There are many like you."

"Is there anybody known to me who is not willing to surrender to me?"

One, Vizier said, "Yes, there lives a man in that little grass hut."

Stupid king sent his people, "Go and arrest him."

Now everybody knew it that that man is very saintly. So what they did is, they pulled him out, they asked him to come down, he refused to come, they physically lift him, brought him to the kingdom. Brought him in his court. The man came, satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. silently, never bothered and king said, "Why didn't you come?"

He didn't reply.

"What are you doing here?"

He didn't reply.

Finally he said, "What I can do for you?"

He didn't reply.

He got very upset, uptight. Asked the Grand Vizier, what he should do to break the deadlock. The Grand Vizier said, "This man is not the physical, is not the mental, you are facing a total spirit. If you want to deal with him become total spirit and you can communicate."

The difference between any king in the world and a Sikh is, Sikh crown himself every morning and king is crowned only once. Sikh relates in the AmritAmrit , Aamrit The nectar of bliss; also the ceremony in which a person dedicates their life to the Khalsa. Amrit Vela , Aamrit Vela Literally "ambrosial time".

So please remember and understand that relationship between finite and Infinity is not a puzzle. Therefore if you are told what the stars are going to do to you, what a preacher can do to you, what a teacher can do to you, forget all that. You can do one thing for yourself - that you can put one first, one first, Ek first, Ong Kar later. God is the Creator and the creation. Creation and God you put later. Now you have guts?

If you feel you are a Sikh, then put one before everything and what is that one? All is one. Am I right or I am wrong? Are you confused, you understand what I am saying? You understand English, right? This, you are not smiling, you are serious. Am I saying something which I didn't say last week? I am saying the same thing from the last twenty years. What I am telling you let me tell you. I am telling you, don't, don't bother Sikhs are going to be so many that you can't even number them, that's sure.

Well, nineteen eighty eight years there was no Christian, three thousand BC there was no Jew and six thousand BC there was not a Hindu and three thousand BC there was no Buddhist. So what we are talking about? I mean to way, are we not going by the figures of the history? Sikhs are going to be many. Problem is not how many Sikhs will have in the world. Problem will be how we'll deal with them? That's the problem. Because the space age is going to come, make everybody freak out, mentally crack up and God knows, drugs will be there or what there will be there but everybody will just hit the wall anyway.

Today why in India we are being beaten up? Because we are Rishis, we start being Rishis, we couldn't share our wisdom, the ultimate strength, the our spirit and we have a very stupid leadership, painfully, we have become a Tada, we have become, you know, this guy...

I had a very painful experience in Los Angeles. There is a friend of mine, I respect him, he is a Gursikh, he called me once my secretary and he said, "Siri Singh SahibSiri Singh Sahib Honorary title given to Yogi Bhajan to indicate his role as spiritual leader of Sikh Dharma in the West. His complete title within Sikh Dharma is Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji. is not available."

He insisted finally and then he said, he has a very personal message for me, only I can speak to him. Anyway you know, medically this and that, but you know, I said, "All right, let us talk to him."

I spoke to him, I said, "What I can do?"

He said, "Singh Sahib, there is a trouble."

I said, "But what is your trouble, how can it be solved? If I can be solving."

He said, "My saint from my village has come, he wants to meet you and you have to meet him for my sake."

I said, "God, I am willing to meet everybody, including everybody, well if he is a saint, bring him over, there is no problem."

I met the saint and saint met me and the guy said, "I am very happy I met you."

I said I am very happy I met his saint.

He said, "No, no, he is not my saint, he is saint of everybody."

I said, "No, there is a difference. You have a saint and I have a saint. My saint said to me in a simple language, 'Paagoya Gur Sant Malaya Prab Abanasi Ghar Mei, paya' and these words 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 Arjan Fifth Guru of the Sikhs. ArjanGuru Arjan Fifth Guru of the Sikhs.

That's how we divide saintliness to suit our camouflage insanity. We are not afraid of God, none is afraid of God. We are afraid of our own insanity and we try to cover it with a blanket of God. But in the heat as the eyes we cover with a blanket, it can stay but in the heat of our anger, it melts away. That's why commotion are chaotic, emotions are influence.

Neither the emotion nor the commotion nor the feelings which makes the dealing to just be biased. So what is we have to do in our life? Wisdom. We don't have the strength to have wisdom because we are judgmental. How to get rid of judgmentalness?

They, beholding whom my soul blossoms, how can I attain to their society. They are the saints, friends, hearty intimates, who attune me to the love of the lord. My love with him breaks not nor it's interrupted over. Oh my supreme Lord master, show Thou mercy unto me that I may ever sing Thy virtues.

Lord is contained in spaces and interspaces. He cherishes all the beings. I have amassed the true treasure of the wealth and property of the one name. When the Lord Himself becomes merciful to me I forget Him not ever from my mind. My comings and goings having ended and the foremost Lord now abides within my mind. His limit can be known not, He is lofty beyond reach and is Infinite. He who forgets his lord dies and is born hundreds of thousands of times. They alone bear their beloved true love within whose mind He Himself abides, with them dwell those who share their virtues. They too ponder over their Lord the whole day long. They are imbued with the love of the Supreme Lord and all their reflections are ended. Thou oh Lord are the Creator and Doer, Thou alone are the one and the many. Thou are the omnipotent and omnipresent Master and Thine alone is the discriminating intellect. Nanak meditates ever on the Lord's name which is the support of His devoted slaves.
