YB: Please sit down and thank you. You know when I came in I saw you have built a beautiful stage, it was my obligation and I just asked what is that for? They said, "That's meant for you to sit down." I knew at that time I don't deserve it, though you can see the spirit in the pictorial form, it was right thing to make the father of the Khalsa Nation to sit on it. I have heard you and I acknowledge you. But let me tell you something. Must not live in the wrong mystery that I did anything and have no misunderstanding that you are here by virtue of any miracle. You are here as a reality and your soul, your being and yourself is part of that destiny. I have not invited anybody to come; I have not kicked on anybody to go. Come and go is the law of life but just remember one thing we are sitting under this blue sky on this sacred ground. I hope in the very future you will see what you manifest out of this.

I never get guided by my emotions and my feelings, they are my personal. And the feelings and emotions are so personal and private, sacred and secret, one should never throw them out publicly or even privately. They are the only God given vibrations, one should live with them. I honestly believe, I came here to see America and Northern, Southern, and Western Hemisphere. To enjoy what I have enjoyed was classic and priceless. I believe in a very simple thing, it doesn't matter what if you can identify yourself as spirit of God with the guidance 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. the Heavens shall take care of you. I believe it, I experience it, I understand it and I want to share with you.

We all get very paranoia, phobia, insecure what will happen! My dear friends, nothing is going to happen. It's already there. Man who acknowledged me as a man or a person 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. or 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. , it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter who am I, it doesn't matter who you are. It doesn't matter who is who. All it matters is that we have the destiny and let us make it. Let us not distance our destiny that's all matters. It is my prayer that you all shall reach it; I'll make it to reach it. Journey is tremendously hard and sometime difficult. Sometime individual alone cannot walk on it and cannot make it. So at that moment if one acknowledges the company of the God 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. , I think in the relationship of that three it can be. It doesn't matter who you are and how we are. But our songs are not wrong they are the spirit and they shall prove the point today, yesterday and tomorrow.

What I have started shall see zenith, what has risen shall shine. It is the twenty million people in America who want to revolt against the bureaucracy and wanted to experience higher consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. , you are not here because of me, you are not here because of you, it is the nineteen million young people of America who made sacrifice to make us to happen what we are. I believe that you will understand tomorrow also. Great things require great sacrifice and great sacrifice is always the privilege of the few. Normally I could be very emotional and may feel that there is a wonderful today. Yes, it only predicts a great wonderful tomorrow. Your generation shall rule this Earth in peace for thousands of years, you will be combining factor of the nations and shall bring on Earth the real age of the true 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. . It is destined.

I am just a very humble part of it and so you and let us keep walking and keeping up let us make it. Even those who fake it they make it. I have a personal experience; those who have left have not left. They remember us more than we remember them. Because one can give distance to a physical relationship, one can distort mental attitude but yet no man is born of a woman who can give distance to God-written destiny and decree. We are not here as a family by the ordinary weaning of the Earth we are here by the will of God. May the hand of God protect you and provide you the guidance and give you the privilege to strongly, graciously and courageously walk on this path.

As I am walking my last mile of life let me tell you one thing, isn't the life that matters it is the courage you bring to it. Coward dies many deaths; man of God with the grace 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. knows no death. Remember, you are walking here on this path, just to pave the way for those who have to follow you. The only blessing you can leave for them is the graceful memory. A perpetual memory, which neither time can erase nor space can drop. We have seen right now how we have expanded in twenty years. Just recollect from today how shall we be looking from two hundred years from now. Just extend yourself into the telescope of time and find a space and look down, how shall we be doing two thousand years from now.

To those who have to follow us and see us and be with us, in the millennium of the conscious in that conscious collaboration into the spirit of time and space we started the seedling, unto Thee the zillions of branches, which are here in combination of harmony, bliss and ecstasy and feelings of the human become that of the virtue of angels. And that angelic, which is the God in Itself living in the body of the human we are one in that spirit then and now and ever shall be. In the hand of that Parapaar, privileged privilege of that energy in which the human live and exist, we are in oneness of that one, which was unseen for millions of years by the human tribe and today it is the partnership, it's the friendship. It is that the clarity of the mind you have achieved, which we started. It is the power of the sight, which you have understood, which we couldn't see, but just remember as great you are into the oneness of that one God, we long to you in spirit to be. We were the humble ones, we passed before you to leave the path so you can enjoy in bliss, in bountiful, blissful, beautiful self of the God. We only pray to Him and pray hard, you play with Him, play well. SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself.

YB: I repeat it is not a miracle, I repeat it is not a miracle and I repeat it third time it is not miracle. I was arranging my room and there was one eagle short.

(Students' laughter)

And normally per habit I yelled at Surya, I said, "Where is that eagle?"

And she didn't tell me. You are going to go up here and get it. Thank you for filling in the gap, it shall sit in the memory of those who have to follow you. You have seen it, they will enjoy it. Eagle is the symbol, he is the Lord of the air and the wind and he is also the foundation of the Akashic Records.
