Student: (---)

YB: No, no, no, no not only cannot be said it can be said meditative experience and it works. That is what problem is when I came to the west there was no need to come and I never thought it's worthwhile living my comfortable stay in India and what I was doing was very important and I was serving the government of India in a very good capacity and it was well I enjoyed it perhaps on the side issue I was 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. and I was teaching and there was no idea to come to the west. But somewhere along the line the Canadian high commissioner (?) told me, I was teaching him and he said to me, "How many years you want me to spend to just live what I want to learn."

And I said, "Many life times."

He said, "I don't have it." And then he thought that people come from the west, they spend so much money and they learn nothing. What happened one day I was in duty when I was called so that I should rest in 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. and I asked swamiji, I said, "What's wrong with you, handle it."

He said, "I don't know, I can't handle this lady she is all over 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. ." So I picked up a car I 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. and I asked her.

I said, "What is this?"

She said, "I have come from Portugal, I have only twelve hours to stay I have straight come 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. and I have come with one hope I want to see God right now. Can you show me?" And I looked at swamiji.

I said, "Why don't you show me God she want to see God."

He said, "She is a crazy woman you deal with her."

I said, "She is not crazy, she has come to India from Portugal (?) her visa. So she has (?) twelve hours or what you call it visa and they allowed it now she has come out she want to meet God give her God."

And she said, "If you won't give me God I have no misunderstanding I am going to kill myself."

I said, "Wow one (?) she need God she needs right now and she leaves in twelve hours and if we don't show her God she is going to kill herself." So that when I understood the situation I told her to sit down. So she satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down opposite to me.

I said, "Look at me."

She said, "Yes I am looking at you."

I said, "You want God in experience or you just want to look at the God."

She said, "I want both."

I said, "Then I am God look at me."

She said, "No, no, no that's not true you are a man of God you are not God."

I said, "Okay something is experienced."

I said, "Put your both hands on the back and lock them and promise me whatever will happen, you will not loose your hand."

She said, "Okay." So that means she couldn't do it. I just pulled and caught her nose and won't let her breathe. She could hold the breath for a while and when she couldn't breathe her eyes came out and I let her breathe.

Then she said, "God."

I said, "That is experience."

(Student's laughter)

It is only the breath of life with which you experience God and we are very unconscious about it, we are very unconscious about it and meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. you should know what 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. is? Do you this is very hot place you take lot of bath, right? People take bath, you don't?

Student: Sometimes.

YB: Sometimes no, no, no, no it's very hot here don't you take bath many times? (?) shower. How many times average you have to take that? To do what why you take that come on?

Student: Clean the body.

YB: Clean the body yes we take bath two, three times sometime once, sometime twice, sometime four times to clean the body. How many times you meditate to clean the mind? So every (?) has the answer. You take bath to clean body you meditate to clean the mind. There is nothing more to it don't have any misunderstanding and how you clean your soul, the strength the life? You don't know because whatever you have on this earth so long the soul is with you, you can feel it, you can enjoy it, you can understand it, you can expand it, you can give it away, you can take it. But the moment the soul shall leave this body there is nothing, do you know that? And do you know when your soul is going to leave the body? No you don't, that is what happens in America I started teaching in UCLA I asked a simple question consciously it's a supreme conscious and (?) change of mind (?) difficult whole thing and I just asked you to think.

If you do not know what is the relationship between you and your soul you do not know who you are and when you do not know who you are anything else you know is useless. You can't interpret yourself, that's why you lie, what is a lie? We are in fear and we don't want to face the realty the fact, so we makeup a story how you are (?) no, no, no I was not there. Why you want to know? If you were not there why you want to know why you want to know leave him alone, but we want to know why he want to know we don't want to tell why we go and rest two o'clock, because we do not know who we are. Have you seen people introducing each other meet this man, he is a businessman, he is a millionaire, he is 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. , swamiSwami Master. have you seen anybody telling you meet this good man? Man as a man doesn't understand the depth, the dimension, and the self of it, because mind is not cleaned everyday as body is cleaned. What a hot weather mind goes through lot of changes, lot of problems, lot of pressures .

I was explaining to one lady today she was asking me a question, "why people are unhappy?"

I said, "They are idiots there is no reason to be unhappy."

She said, (?).

I said, "I know I have been with them in America, I have been with them in Europe, I have been with them everywhere. I have not understood so far why people are unhappy?"

I know the reason, I understand them very well, because there is a simple law it is called law of trinity of force. There are two forces, perpendicular, parallel, perpendicular force is time you got to do it. (?) I have to accomplish it. There is a party guest is coming guest is going light is coming light is going, airplane is coming, airplane is going, all changes perpendicular. you meet them, you meet them, you meet them. After a while you say, "What light, what airplane, what guest" you drop it, there is a (?) in you, there is a emptiness in you honest emptiness we call it depression, you become sad and depressed, it's here because you cannot go along with it. Then it's a parallel energy I want this I want that I want that oh I must beat that person he went forward he is a millionaire, I should be millionaire, he has six car I should have six car, he has thirty factories, I should I have forty factories (?) one, in the end either you die or you say what next and you do not know what next. Because this happens to you and then you put stop before you it doesn't matter who you are. I have seen kings, I have seen prime ministers, presidents, successful businessmen, poor, beggars, bumps I have got a lot of people of lot of life, I have found the same thing. They will all have a way to get, why? Because they do not know how to diagonally remember? Trikuti, a three dimensional diagonal, because they do not know the diagonal energy and if you do not know the diagonal energy you do not know the way out. Your daughter comes papa I want this, this, this you have two answer yes or are you say no. Once somebody called me on the phone,.

He said, "My wife, wife is standing here I am standing here my daughter wants this thing what should I tell her?"

I said to him I said, "What do you want to tell?"

He said, "I want to tell no but I don't know how to say it." Have you seen that point of life? When the answer is no, but you can't.

I said, "It's a very simple say yes or no."

He said, "I can't do that."

I said, "Okay what do you want actually?"

He said, "I want her not to be hurt, but I want her to understand it's not good for her."

I said, "Why don't you say to her? I don't want you to be hurt I want to say to you it is not good for you."

He said, "I can't tell her."

I said, "What is wrong with you, what is this hypocrisy now, you want to say you are a father she loves you, she said I want this and this tell her no."

He said, "I can't do that."

"Tell her it is not good for you."

He said, "I can't do that, give me a way out."

I said, "Tell her let me think."

He said, "That is a lie, you have taught me you cannot think."

I said, "That's true, you cannot... you may be cannot think do you know that?" No all right how many of you think that you can think raise your hands, let us solve it, honest you can't think. I am sorry I said it wrong way.

Do you know that if it comes to thinking you can think? How many of you? Now listen to this, as a human being you are not made to think, it's a 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. , you think you can think you think you can think that tells you, you know how to think, because this shashara this intellect we call it thousand petal lotus remember? It automatically releases one-thousand thoughts per wink of the eye it releases, it is not you, it is the function of this lotus to release one-thousand thought per wink of the eye. And out of those thousands and thousands of thoughts you pickup one, your ego picks up one, that becomes your emotion and out of thousands and thousands and thousands of emotions you pickup one emotion by your personality that becomes your desire. Out of thousands and thousands and thousands of desire you work on one, either you achieve it or you fail now tell me what you can think.

You are not made to think, you are not temperamental, temperamental is a animal you are rational, you can always intuitively know the pros and cons that is human. The only protection God gave you, you don't have a sting, you don't have hoofs, you don't have horn, you don't have claws, you have no protective system. Your only protection, which God gave you is the intelligence through which you can be intuitive. You simply meditate and they develop their things and all (?) or not. They are a very simple people who wants to be successful and happy. There are two things you can be successful and miserable, but you can be successful and happy and you want to be successful and happy you have to be intuitive. Before the car can take you to place where you have to face the effect you should know before that what is the effect, before you start drinking you should know what drinking does to you. When you start drinking you say I can handle it at one stage you lose the handle and you cause the accident.

There is no protection to man except the man must intuitively know what this can lead to. Cause must be there to know the effect. Once you start in cause you have to face the effect, you have to, there is no way out. Therefore what you don't want to say don't start. It is not simple but that is a must. So the art of 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. is very simple, to clean your mind, wheel of life, wheel of life has two sides to it, body and mind and soul is the axle on which it goes on and on. We meditate because we want a clear mind, clear mind can give you intuition, intuition can let you know the cause and effect and what all effect you don't want to face you drop the cause. You can't drop the effect and you are not powerful enough to put potassium cyanide on your tongue and say I am not going to die, there is no way. If you don't want to die don't take potassium cyanide and then put on your tongue is it understandable?

Problem is when you are young, when you are young you are funny, One teacher was very funny. When I was young I was very, very funny I enjoy it to listen because I wanted to know what youth can be and this is what I used to do I had a good experience of meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. and I have a (?) I go with my fellow friends and I sing with them and I walk in front of them and I tell them I am going to definitely win you have any objection. Now as a courtesy

Then they will say, "No." And I win, one day they satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down with me and they say, "Why you are doing this to us?"

I said, "It's a very simple thing when say I am going to win tell them 'No,' don't you want to win?"

They said, "Yes, we want to win but you run very fast."

I said, "That's not true." When I come before you and I say, "I want to win do you people have any objection, you should say 'Yes,' we have objection." And I (?) watch you say (?).

And I said, "The body is a machine, behind this machine there is a mind and behind that mind there is a spirit, the soul, the three have to come in an alignment to be happy." There are seven laws of happiness, happiness doesn't come with money, with money you buy things, services, home, car, servant anything, but we can't buy happiness. There are lot of people rich in America you cannot believe how rich they are and you also cannot believe how unhappy they are. Happiness cannot be bought with money. Money can provide you facilities, services, happiness can be bought this way commitment will give you character, character will give you dignity, dignity will give you Divinity, Divinity will give you grace, that's called trust worthiness. That will give you power to sacrifice and that will give you experience of happiness.

If people cannot trust you, you write it down you cannot be a happy person and people cannot trust you if you are absolutely not truthful, because the problem in telling lies is when you tell a lie you have to remember what you told and if you don't remember what you said the other person will know it next time that you are not speak the truth and that person will never trust you again. There is nothing in this world, which you live very fast than trust, and not that I trust it's a like a village without water. What did I say repeat it?

Love without trust.

Students: Love without trust.

YB: And village without water means what? Nothing a bunch of sand. That's why I say lot of people when you (?) because one way or the other there are two types of truth one is individual the other is circumstantial and third is infinite. Individual truth is, which I know and he knows, he knows for himself, I know for myself. Circumstantial truth is he knows and I know we are sitting here, there is (?) working. Infinite truth is he has the soul, the path of God I have the soul, the path of God and the most important thing for you is how you want to be known, I don't want to introduce yourself to other people and other places how you want to be known.

You want to you want to appear as beautiful that is a makeup right? Dress up, makeup, scent, levitate, ladies (?) and all that stuff. Then you choose dress, then you choose design, shoes and the (?) and purse should match, and this should match this and collar should be like that and whole rigmarole. You work so much hard to just to introduce your appearance that am I right? But have you ever tried to introduce your person? How you want people to know you are dependable, half dependable, undependable, pushy, neurotic do you know when somebody comes home and the other one say hey, (?).

(Student's laughter)

You remember that? And to (?) have you seen that?

(Student's laughter)

You both have (?) have you, have you sincerely meditated on it how you want to be known. You don't have time, you just want to look pretty, beautiful, rich, vibrant and then it's a degree one man has degree he has a little name and there was two lines of degrees, and I read the degrees and all that.

And I said, "This man is going to come and see me." The lady of the house said, "I wish not, but I think he will come." I said, "He is a very literary person, she said, "No he is insane. So by the way in the afternoon he came and start talking and talking and talking and I asked him.

I said, "I have a personal question for you?"

He said, "What?"

I said, "Why people think you are insane?"

He said, "I talk too much."

I said, "Now I think so." You know you talk too much?

He said, "Yes."

I said, "Then don't talk too much."

He said, "I can't help." Some people cannot help teaching, some cannot help talking, some cannot help doing this, doing that. There is one thing in us, which we cannot help stopping, and there is one thing in us which we cannot lose, it's a balance of life. Some people cannot speak I know a very successful man and he is a president all this and he has to speak sometimes, so he goes he does... he is so phobic that before public he can't speak I don't want to talk, there is nothing wrong with him, he is very intelligent, well read everything public speaking once I even tried I took a pin and I poked him perhaps he will speak and he said umm."

(Student's laughter)

He didn't speak so what we try. There is one thing in you, you can't do and there is a one thing, which you can't stop, but those who meditate they can do that one thing they can't do and they can talk that one thing they can talk. They become complete human being and that is the beauty of 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. , that's the beauty of that mind which is meditative mind. You know there is a church in every corner and there is a synagogue and then there is a temple and there is a worship and there is a reverence and there is a prayer God knows what is going on, yogisYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. , swamisSwami Master. , phonies, good ones, it's the whole business. I mean to say it's no problem with that too. You know why we buy all this? Because we still want to do one thing, which we cannot do and start that one thing which we want to start. We have no need for the spiritual people that makes us needy, that makes us to want them, that is where you become religious, because there is a void in us and that has to be complete and it's a very precious (?) if you ever (?) with this it is very difficult to die, because you are not to fulfilled. I remember there is a person and I was called to come and pray.

And I said, "What this prayer for?"

"There is a person one-hundred and twenty-six year old not dying. The person wants me to come and do prayer so the person wants to die.

And I said, "What this kind of prayer is?"

What I am sharing with you is not something new I have pulled out of the ear and I am a avatar I am telling you something which has been presented to mankind for thousands and thousands and thousands of years and it has benefited, benefited, benefited thousands and thousands of people. So I hope you understand what I am doing and you will exactly do it scientifically and you will be surprised it will do you lot of good rather than doing anything else.

Now if you sit on the chair put your weight on both legs that means IdaIda One of the three major channels (nadis) for subtle energy in the body. It is associated with the flow of breath through the left nostril, follows down the left side of the spine, and represents the qualities of the moon - calmness, receptivity, coolness, and imagination. It is associated with the functions of the parasympathetic nervous system but is not identical to it nor derived from it. Also see Pingala and Shushmana and PingalaPingala One of the three major channels (nadis) for subtle energy in the body. It is associated with the flow of breath through the right nostril, follows down the right side of the spine, and represents the qualities of the sun - energy, heat, action, and projective power. It is associated with the functions of the sympathetic nervous system but is not identical to it or derived from it. See also Ida and Shushmana. the left energy and right energy is brought to balance and don't touch your spine with the chair sit by your own right. That's why we sit here not that we are crazy, we sit here, because we cross the legs and that way we cut down the circulation of blood to the lower limbs make it minimum so that this cantaloupe can get the maximum, because it is going to work when we are going to meditate. You understand that? And we must bring the energy to neutral. I tell you if you ever want to do something and you do not know what to do just put your both hands like this and exactly, exactly in sixteen seconds you will think right by watch. It takes sixteen seconds to neutralize the energy and this thing starts working again. Now put your hands at the heart center like this finger-to-finger and tip-to-tip no pressure just, just simple got it? Just for the fun of it don't try to think you are going to be spiritual overnight no, no, no I don't promise things it is a science it is not something and just look at the tip of your nose and find it. Try to find the tip of your nose, your mind will start becoming calm and calm. You have to do nothing just put your both eyes on the tip of the nose that is called a diaan. When you look at the tip of the nose the optical nerve concentrate the central urinary system in the cavity of the brain and that brings both hemispheres to central action. That is called diaan and when you put the fingertips together it brings the IdaIda One of the three major channels (nadis) for subtle energy in the body. It is associated with the flow of breath through the left nostril, follows down the left side of the spine, and represents the qualities of the moon - calmness, receptivity, coolness, and imagination. It is associated with the functions of the parasympathetic nervous system but is not identical to it nor derived from it. Also see Pingala and Shushmana and PingalaPingala One of the three major channels (nadis) for subtle energy in the body. It is associated with the flow of breath through the right nostril, follows down the right side of the spine, and represents the qualities of the sun - energy, heat, action, and projective power. It is associated with the functions of the sympathetic nervous system but is not identical to it or derived from it. See also Ida and Shushmana. energy to neutral.

So body can leave the earth, the mind can leave the worry and can think of something farther better and bigger for you. That is one way to become rich and get rid of poverty. I am very rich don't misunderstand and I don't believe in poverty idiots are poor, because they cannot neutralize their energy and it is not written on our forehead that we have to be beggars and yelling and scream the whole day just for one chapatti. I ate that roti today it was very useful. Just neutralize your body and your energy and start meditating. This is the first lesson and try to go through it slowly don't hurry. There is nobody waiting for you over the other side of the world. Slowly put your fingers together and try to concentrate your eyes on the tip of the nose. I have to give you second lesson first I like to see that you totally concentrate. Just half the nose my sweet lady try it, go by it very slowly try it again and again and find it out. It will give you two things it will make you healthy, happy and holy it is a first step to that. It will give you power to think about opportunities which your mind knows, but you don't know. So it will reveal to you lot of new methods of life and this is called, 'neutralization.'

Neutralization takes three to seven minutes by our worldly time. If we time you now we like to see in three minutes and we will talk to you after three minutes from now and if you cannot give yourself three minutes what you can do? Concentrate for three minutes from now. Yes some of you are doing very good, just concentrate don't argue just concentrate, because I want you to know, I want you to experience when we say concentrate what it means? You can read the books and you can know everything until you do not experience you do not know what concentration is.

Side B

And put your weight on both legs equal and start concentrating. This practice alone can bring you all the good luck, which your mind knows and you don't and this is called Abouth Khajana. It means unknown treasure. If you read in a book that one can find the unknown treasure just understand this is the first step to that. Automatically your breath will start going in a very special fashion that will guarantee good health. That means both the nostril will slowly start breathing so you rather than one. That means if there is any disease in the body it will start going away. Concentration will bring parasympathetic nerve system and the muscles together. That means your body will not go older and looking at the tip of nose will start opening for you unknown secret of your own life and opportunity. One more minute to go time becomes very long.

Now you start feeling yourself where as your fingers are meeting and where your nose and eyebrows meet. Create a connection of the flow of the energy. Feel the energy is coming through your fingers it is coming between the eyebrows and the tip of the nose and through your eyes it is looking at the tip of the nose and then on the other side it's going back to the other hand. Start letting it come from the left side circulate it through the right side and make a circle, it's a mental circle, it is a purely mental circle. It may not look real to you but within three minutes it will be real and you will be not there. Let the energy come from the left eyebrow and from the eyes to the tip of the nose then through the shoulder down to the shoulder onto the five fingers cross to the right hand and complete the circle. Please concentrate heavily keep your eyes on the tip of the nose that is a fixation point, because optical nerve is the most nearer and direct nerve to the controlling center of the brain.

Mentally pass your own energy through that circle. Now start disconnecting the fingers and still let the energy flow. Give fingers little distance separate them and let the energy flow.

Come on what is going on come on quick, quick, quicker don't touch it and now stretch your hand up please like this and stretch your spine, stretch it stretch don't breathe just stretch, stretch, pull all the back pain the spine pain the old age get it out pull, relax.

Thank you, you were nice for the first time you could do better. There is a one little exercise more which you have to do and then we will finish the day and we won't be complete without that, because tomorrow I will be working on the valves four valves in the heart which gave us the timing, you know in our life, when our bad luck hit we say a bad luck hits from three sides, that is when actually you are out of time. There are two heartbeats, one heart is inside this and one heart is outside you the magnetic field. That also impulsive and it is the different between that impulsation, which makes people unhappy and happy, poor and rich, healthy and unhealthy, it's right here what happens and now I am going to work on the muscles of the heart and today we will only work on the left muscle okay fine?

Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale and inhale exhale fast breathe in and out just quick. We want the lungs to be clean that's all meditate on one through the breath in and out. Use your little nosy. Clean it out God knows what you have smoked and what you have put in lungs, I just want the whole stuff to be opened up right thank you, thank you that's enough. Now put your hand straight and put your thumbs together like that and just look at the tip of your nose and see what a wonderful world you are going to see in few minutes, try my way it works very well. You will start breathing in a very different fashion than normally you breathe. If there is any murmur in the beat of the heart, any weakness in the heart muscle after all heart is just a bunch of muscles. It will be corrected by you alone, now. In other words we are running an insurance against heart attack that's all it is about. There is a possibility your shoulders may be hurt and may be start hurting that shows the circulation to your brain is weaker, we will discuss that tomorrow and you will start breathing in a special fashion.

Touch the thumbs end and keep the hand straight and keep looking at the tip of your nose. Palms of the hand towards the earth parallel to the earth to draw the energy from the magnetic field of the earth. Weight, equal weight on both legs those who are sitting on the chair. No mama it doesn't hurt, just breathe deep and you will be surprised the pain will go away. That special long deep breath it's a breath of life, which will make you healthy, healthy and healthy try it. Long deep breath it will go right in and give all the strength your muscles of the heart needs. It is the oxygen, it is the food, which will go in medical terms they call (?). Three more minutes you have to go, concentrate, concentrate it is all for personal use. All the damage done by the chickens and the beef and all that stuff we eat the toxin and they get deposited in the body, this is the time to get rid of them, really sweet heart I do it everyday. If I can't do it physically I do it in a dream. That much I am into it come on quick have a very deep breath with it. Deeper the breath will be happier you will be.

Two more minutes no big deal, come on, come on you are very young what are you doing? Look at your youth, stretch your elbow straight pull out good. It's worth doing it's better than a heart attack at the airport pull out, pull out, pull out the energy you will be surprisingly happy afterwards. I beat the drum for you come on that is how heartbeats. I wanted to continue to beat, don't feel now come on one minute and fifty seconds come on. Don't drop your hands now one minute will not be that much killing, come on. Listen to the sound of your heart breathe deep, fifty-five seconds only more, forty-five seconds, thirty seconds more come on for thirty seconds you are losing the ground come on quick. Fifteen seconds come on pick it up, try it, try it last five seconds now comes the D-day inhale deep, stretch your hand as much as you can, stretch pull it out of the ribcage exhale, relax, thank you. Well, you did wonderful it was very, very fantastic. But surprisingly you did three minutes three minutes and three minutes and all it takes to do this nine minutes everyday. You think you can afford nine minutes? You look like to me you have found something nothing we are going to meet tomorrow also. You know once you go through this treadmill you come out very clean.

Yoga is a very practical science it makes you stronger, stronger, stronger and very, very stronger and when it unites you yoga means union, when it unites you with God you become the strongest. There is nothing more to it and nobody can subdue you, they can chop your body, they can kill you but they can't rule your spirit. They can't takeaway your wisdom, they can't takeaway your intuition, they can't takeaway your love, your kindness, your giving. There are so many things nobody can takeaway, because you are united with the most strong being of all being as a human being and the unity between you and God is ever so long you are alive, because you breathe fifteen times a minute, it means the breath of life the God comes to you fifteen times a minute average. So you are not deserted, you are not abandoned, you can't find God, God is everywhere and you are here. Tomorrow we will work in the cleansing of the mind through a meditative process, which is the kind of a experience we have to go through, but just remember it is only couple of minutes and if that time spent can make you stronger, happier and self-assure that's what God is. Person who love God, there is a one saying you can always understand that. There is no love of God it's a very self-assured you can't shake that person. May the longtime...
