Blessed be you who have come here to listen to me, normally I don't think you will understand what I want to say. But my language is very straight, because if you don't understand me, I will lose nothing and you lose everything, so pass is on my side. Fact is that you are as good a human being as I am, maybe some of you are young and can use your youth as a virtue to cover your bad end of the deal. I have come in west for eighteen years, I have seen people, they try to make impression. Very few try to make impact.

We are two legged animals and we have to make a choice that we are going to deal in life with emotions, feelings, with our riches, with our poverty, all those sort of thing or we are going to take our 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. in our own hand and our intelligence as our guide and we are going to work it out so that we may love our self, know our self. I don't mind even you want to sell yourself but God said sell it at some price, not for cheap twenty dollars dinner and one flower and one kiss and call it love. That's what I have seen; I have seen in my life the most wonderful human life being bargained, bought and sold for nothing.

I have worked with young people from last eighteen years, I look the rich and poor alike. My concept of life has never changed. This is what I believe, I believe God couldn't do anything better, even He might have tried and if there is anything such as perfect God what He has produced you is according to that standard of perfection. Because you don't believe you are perfect, that's why you are in trouble and all these teachers, swamisSwami Master. , 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. , religion, everything is just meant to remind you that you are as good as God. If you write the word God, it is God, if you write good, it is good, there is a one 'o' extra. But how many people of you sitting here are going after my finishing of the speech believing what I have said is reality. Because you cannot, you have not been trained to face reality. Because you do not dwell on reality, therefore you cannot confront a reality. I don't blame you for it.

When I walked in United State eighteen years ago, I never knew the difference between a freeway and boulevard and I still do not know the difference and I don't want to know, really, I have made millions of dollars, gave it away, I didn't even care. I have never bothered. I have never bothered that I need students, I have never bothered that I have to sell myself, I have never bothered to please anybody. When I start analyzing people I am so cut throat, I just tell him 'you are going to be hurt, this is what it is, now it is up to you, you want to take care yourself or not?' 'Please help me.' I say, "Why? God made you, God made me, help yourself."

If you cannot serve yourself, is there anybody in the world who is going to serve you? You must be kidding. If you cannot come out smiling with a power, with a standard, with a personality, with your own likes and dislikes and with your own emotions and values and feelings, whatever you want to call it, if you cannot do your self justice, where you are going to find justice - in the supreme court of United States?

There is none sitting among you, who should be poor. But there are poor people, there is none among you who should be unhappy, there are unhappy people, there is nobody who should be sick, even I got sick sometime, extend myself twenty hours, never care, after all, this is a body, I trash it, I, I do. I mean, at one o'clock if somebody calls me, I am right there calling, answering, talking, discussing, trying to make a sense, tolerating nonsense and making a sense is called commotion. Tolerating a nonsense and trying to make a sense is called emotion and having made some sense is called intelligence and make somebody to work the intelligence which you have made so that person can understand the pro and con and walk his life is called 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. .

We do not breathe consciously, majority of the time we do not know we are breathing or not. There is so much fastidiousness about this KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. , what is a KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. , dangerous, it is this, that, it is this, it is that, sometime I wonder do they know what KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. is. You all know your car, most of you don't know. You get the key, get in, all you know is put a gas, put a water or now, now you have to do it yourself, prior to this people used to do it for you. Now KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. is nothing but transmission, it's a gearbox in the system, energy is the same, there is no difference.

A man who is depressed, sick, mentally bizarre, cannot handle himself, does have the KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. energy exactly in the same frequent potency, the man who can handle two thousand people and still relax, is no difference. Simply the one knows how to change gears, the other doesn't. That's all about, there is no big difference. If you want to be successful, try yourself, if you want to be excellent you have to know how to change gears and if you do not know change gears doesn't matter who you are, rich, poor, big, smile, beautiful, ugly, you are trouble. That's where the trouble in life is. I mean to say, just imagine, you have to go somewhere and you want to go in the fourth gear, instead of that you push yourself in first gear, what will happen to your car and even you say then(save that) co-incident, in next mile you put yourself in reverse gear, well, what happens then? And that's what is all about.

Everybody is trying to survive and be successful, everybody; that's not the way to live. Don't survive because you are all ready alive, why you are surviving for, waste of energy and don't try to just grab things; co-exist. What belongs to you shall come to you, it's a very simple way in life. You need for your things, for your life, day to day life, seventy-two thousand things, count it, aha, small, little, big, water, air, this cleaning shelter, bah, bah, bah, body is divided into seventy-two thousand parts and each part needs a thousand thing. That's why we have thousand petal lotus on the top of your head, it is called brain. Now call it anything and you work only three percent of the brain, rest you don't work.

Now the choice is, either you stay stationary, locate yourself, root yourself and let things comes to you or run after things and find them and collect them and bring them. Ninety-nine point nine million people, I didn't say out of a hundred, that's why I didn't say percent, run after things. But when they find some things, by that time they have gone old, weak and they cannot enjoy them. There are some who have conquered their mind and learn the art, to be, to be or I am, I am and thus things comes to them.

In United State of America my problem is that I find it very difficult here to share even spirituality which I openly share, I am not upset in sharing that. In KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. Kundalini Yoga It is a Raaj Yoga that creates vitality in the body, balance in the mind, and openness to the spirit. It is used by the householder, busy in the world, to create immediate clarity. The fourth Guru in the Sikh tradition, Guru Ram Das, was acknowledged as the greatest Raaj Yogi. (See Raaj Yogi.) He opened this long secret tradition to all.

He opened this long secret tradition to all. we do not initiate anybody, by no virtue we can do. Student has to initiate himself to become the master and if he is not worth that, there is no need to add worth to him, or her, whatever the case is. That's why in this science nobody is initiated. You cannot say I am initiate and it's very difficult for people in America to obey somebody. When you say obey, you immediately think I am not a slave and if you say, have a discipline you think you are in a dungeon. So there is a very basic, fundamental, conscious, reluctance, to learn things of excellence, celestial, conscious science.

Religion to me is just nothing but a reality, beyond that I don't understand religion at all and reality is reality and one factor about reality is that it is infinite, it cannot change, it cannot become short, it cannot become more, it become big or it can be small. Law of the opposite does not touch reality, reality is forever and if reality is forever "If" then you are a non-reality. Because you live to die and you die to live. Before you, there is a example like Jesus Christ, like Mahatma BuddhaBuddha An enlightened one; founder of the Buddhist faith. , like Mohan Das Karamchand Gandhi, like 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. , like Hazrat Mohammad, there are some people in your, like Moses, who have lived even today. Jesus Christ hold more property, tax free even today than anybody of you can dream of. And he holds more power today than he was. They put him on the cross and did what they did, today if you meet, meet some Jesus freak and you say, "I don't believe in Jesus," he is going to choke your throat. People believe that way, he is the only son of God, people believe that way.

So people believe in certain people, their ideology as the messenger of God. They had something superior for us. In reality I talk to them all. They were just like you and they just believed in that Infinity, in that love of God you call it and left the way for you to believe that way, not a single prophet has ever tried to (?) because you all I have seen here everybody talks about religion, Churches, God and there are very few people who deny God or they are not religious, I think everybody is religious and reality is if there is a one God, but the one God and He has created all of us, then let us see in everybody that God, even in our enemy.

People ask me sometime, "Why there is a pain, why I am in a pain?"

I said, "It is very simple thing."

"What is simple about it?"

I say, "Otherwise you are not going to pray. There is a chance in pain you may pray."

"Why?"

I say, "Well, have you seen when a horse doesn't run really good what the rider does? He has a little stick in hand, just does that."

Pain is not a matter of pleasure, pain is for those who have not learned to pray and prayer is not what you can ask for. Prayer is something which you do to yourself, it is a selfish act, prayer is not meant for... Some people are totally, misleadingly wrong, 'oh I ask prayer and my prayer got answer and I got a car,' well those who didn't pray they get a car too. So it's no big deal that by prayer you get a car and somebody didn't and I was praying and I got a beautiful wife. There are some who got much beautiful wife than you. I got prayed and got lot of money. There are some more who got better than you. Prayer is actually your own excellence. It is when your mind and your soul and your self become one, that's prayer. It has such a ecstasy in it, such a joyful thing in it.

That is actually the purpose of science of KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. to enjoy. You must understand the God cannot do one thing. He can do everything else and those who have heard me before should not answer me, but I am just asking this general beautiful audience, anybody knows that that one act which God cannot do, that Almighty, omnipresent, omniscient God? Anybody? Do you know that there is a one act which God cannot perform, He may try His best; no? God cannot produce another God. That's why He produced you so that through you He can be loved. I look like I am teaching the gospels, but that's not my intention, but that's what the factual fact is.

God created you in axis of X and Y, under given circumstances with five elements giving you a certain jurisdiction and territory in your own self to enjoy consciously what you got. But what we have done is, we have forgotten who we are because we do not value the most beautiful gift of life. You know I am going to teach tomorrow and people will understand what I am going to teach, simple thing. What I am going to teach tomorrow in one day is tune up, because I know in a car if there is not general tune up it doesn't work right. In you also if heart ChakraChakra , Chaakra The word connotes a wheel in action. It usually refers to the seven primary energy centers in the aura that align along the spine from its base to the top of the skull.

But once your intentional grip is sensuality, you are causing lot of damage to your own body, mind and soul. Because you are not using your higher consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself.

Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. , that's the eighth power you have, you should be calm, serene, compassionate, kind and giving. These are your eight parts. They have to be tuned up, energy has to flow.

But in west when I came, everybody said KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. Kundalini Yoga It is a Raaj Yoga that creates vitality in the body, balance in the mind, and openness to the spirit. It is used by the householder, busy in the world, to create immediate clarity.

(Students' laughter)

It's very, I mean to say I have seen people who have not studied long, they have studied little. It gives you self-respect, it gives you self-identity, it give you courage of calling yourself answering the identity and it is give you to start being yourself and I have seen lot of students find it very hard to be themself and they had a certain personal vendetta with me because I push too much, because I have learned from those kids in the sixties, they used to push drugs and I used to push discipline, the identity, the self-realization because I feel it's a very precious for anybody to be a human, it's extremely precious and just being a human, you know how priceless it is to be human? It's a very rare thing, you can't get it anywhere. And when you two people meet two humans, don't create impressions, create impact, everlasting impact.

Everlasting impact with compassion and kindness is called love. Not the kind of you have, 'oho you brought me a flower.' I collect in Los Angeles, you have that column "Love is when you bring her a flower," today was love is when you imagine for her. So this kind of little cartoons I am collecting from this year to find out love American style. But you all want to be loved. I agree; is that true? But have you ever thought that do you really love yourself? Why you are asking the neighbors to love you? If a person cannot love himself and herself and experience it, how can that person know what love is? If I have no food in my house and I cannot hold it, how can I go to a restaurant and order a meal?

If I am that poor, if you are so consciously poor that you cannot love yourself and you cannot experience to love yourself and you cannot understand the beauty and the grace of it so you can love yourself, tell me please, is there anybody who can make you feel so? You think this emotional hotchpotch, kissing, hugging, exchanging bacteria's and aid and doing all this puch-puch business, you call it love and you think this just running around and having a intercourse here and there with this, that ends to (?) into, you know this kind of... Earthworms do it better than you and they are very qualified sexual creatures. That's not what you want. You want to know...

The purpose of coming to be a human body is to know yourself and if you can make your KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. to penetrate your all centers and bring balance to your own 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. and use your intelligence consciously to evaluate everything, you cannot suffer. We only suffer when we decide things emotionally, because we are blinded by emotions, fanaticism, laziness.

Somebody once told me one day, very good man, he is a holy man, he said, "Well, have you found God?"

I said, "Well I have."

"So where?"

I said, "You."

He said, "I am not complete please."

I said, "Well, I didn't manufacture you, who manufactured you so beautiful and I am just looking at the architect, I am not looking at you. You are beautiful."

He said, "How?"

I said, "You are such a bogus idiot you do not anything about spirituality but you act so well that everybody worships you and they get inspired, I don't care? You have thirty-two diseases that's all right."

He said, "You know, let us talk as friends, you know we are all in the business."

I said, "That's true. Now question is, you know why you are so sick and you pretend to be very holy?:

He said, "That's what I have called you."

I said, "That's what I have come." I said, "The problem is that when you go out and act as a holy man, you create so much tension, you mess up everything. Just relax." I said, "What it matter if two hundred thousand people believe you or two believe you? Fact is, do you believe in yourself."

Don't ask what God can give you? Ask what you can give to God within you. That's the secret of richness. Mind you, I came in America with thirty-five bucks, I still have them in original, totally the same thirty-five dollars, they are on my altar and I pay Uncle Sam lot of taxes. Some people ask me, "Why you pay tax?"

I say, "My student will never learn to pay tax. They'll say our teacher cheats, so why not we. I used to even correct their income tax returns."

Give uncle Sam also, giving is God.

There is a beautiful story. Somebody was just sleeping very nicely in his house and thief walked in, he made a hole in the wall and walked in and the guy switched on the light. He said, "No, no don't worry, search it out whatever you want. You know, just to convenience, I am not getting up."

He said, "What do you mean?"

He said, "You have come to steal things right, go ahead. And if you don't find anything get my help."

Thief very slowly walked back through that place and wanted to go out. He said, "Hey, no, no I am serious," and thief turn around, he said, "I have never enter in a house, somebody switch light and tell go ahead and steal everything, I have never seen such a client, thank you, good-bye," and he walked out.

The guy came back through that hole himself, he said, "It is very cold outside, why don't you sleep tonight here, be comfortable? I will give you what you need."

And God thief ran he couldn't believe. That's called making a kill with kindness. He didn't shot a revolver on him and found good about it. Kindness is the strongest weapon and compassion is the strongest power which people can have, which you can have. Tolerance is the purpose of entire knowledge, entire, it takes entire intelligence, 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. , grit, power, education, what you call, that you can tolerate a nuisance and then make sense out of it. That's what KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. is.

KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. energy means that turn every nonsense and make sense out of it and profit out of it. Conscious experience in life, that's what you need. Well, question is people will sell you lot of gimmicks, sixty-five dollars for a secret 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. , two hundred fifty dollars for a special course and give up all your reserve to me and I will live rich and you walk on the road. That is going on process. I am a head of the religion, I hate to say this but I am going to tell you that. Religion has done more damage than the communists. And this is my experience after about thirty years of being religious man myself.

I feel very bitter now that why didn't I start early. And my purpose coming to west was not to get your dollar and see your white untanned skin and all that stuff. I used to see people coming with full pockets in India to find out a truth and then go empty crying and get nothing and I promised myself that if I ever get a chance to go to the west, I will create teachers who will come to India and teach. God has fulfilled my wish. I don't have any wish more than that. Because, remember this life which you have is priceless. But have you put price on it? And if you have put that price, have you cashed it?

My purpose coming to the west is served. I wanted to serve this divine knowledge and I know as western you cannot be initiated. I also know I not have to initiate, so I am not under any obligation. So I started sharing what I know with people and trying to ask them to be happy. That's where the 3HO, healthy, happy, holy and my definition of a holy is, if you have nine holes you are holy and I think all sitting here excuse my expression, have those nine holes. But question is, what comes out of those holes and what goes back in those holes, if it is consciously controlled then you are holy, otherwise pretty unholy. If you do not have a conscious control, what you receive and what you give out, you are in trouble, and that if you analyze everything in your life, that is the base of your troubles. You can look at it anyway you want, you can try it anyway you want.

The difference is, in this world of ours, we do not understand body is like a shell, mind is like a mussel and soul is like a pearl, what you call that thing? Oyster, oyster, you eat them, put garlic sauce on it, remember? Now the oyster which doesn't have the pearl is sold in restaurant, right, am I right, an oyster which doesn't have the mussel is sold everywhere, shell has no value, mussels have some value and the pearls have the real value. You understand this analogy? Your body is a shell, your mussel the mind and the pearl the soul and remember one thing. Doesn't matter how you decorate, doesn't matter how rich you are or powerful you are, you value nothing, people do not love you, let me tell you frankly, people love nothing but sacredness and people seek nothing but trust. That's why your dollar bill says, 'in God we trust.' This kind of friendship and emotionalism and all that relationship is based only one person seek the trust of other.

You know, see there is a Church you respect it, because it is a sacred thing. There are homes bigger than that, better than this. They are not loved, they are not respected, they are not worshipped. It is in the human to go for higher things and whatever is higher to a man is sacred and whatever man cannot trust is not sacred and if you as a friend, as a lover, as a human being, as a teacher, as a student, as a person, cannot share your trust forever, you have no roots and if you are that shallow and that hollow you have no commitment, you have no character. If you have no character, you have no 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. . Put it this way or that way.

There are seven principles which are for happiness; commitment will give you character, character will give you dignity, dignity will give you Divinity, Divinity will give you grace, grace will give you power to sacrifice, giving without asking anything return is called grace and that will give you power to sacrifice and that will give you the joy, eternal, ever happiness. That's why we love some people, we go and give them the gift. Lot of people give me the gift and some time around me people are very happy. But I know what a gift is. When a gift comes, it warrants a lot of prayer on my part, so to me it's a job. Because if a man brings in the trust of gift to a man of God and if wishes are not fulfilled, then in his mind God doesn't exist, doesn't matter how shallow the situation is. So that is what a prayer is.

Prayer is when you live for all, live in love and see compassionately yourself in everybody. That's why there is a commandment, thou shall not kill. It didn't say thou shall not kill on Saturday and Sunday it is all right. It didn't say thou shall not kill a bird, but you can kill a man. Commandment is direct, there are ten commandments and there are ten stars. God gave Moses or Moses got from God, the ten commandments to elevate the consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. of a human being. We have forgotten those commandments. Thou shall not kill; why not? We kill everyday and this little killing here and there, I am not worry about. Sometime we kill our 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. and still live. You know what I am saying?

Sometime we kill the trust we give to somebody and still smile and laugh, you know what, how much wrong it can be? Sometime we betray and believe in treachery and do everything wrong and then, 'how are you? Didn't get to see you last week, where were you?' We pull the rug under somebody, break his hips, rub his nose into the dirt and then say 'hello, have a nice day.' We are kind of animals really, even the fish hate us. And that is what human tragedy has to resolve itself.

My only concluding remarks will be, they should conclude right? That you can do yourself a favor and you can do a favor to God and you can do favor to your loved one, those who have to follow you, those who are with you and those who have already passed you. Just believe in yourself and love it. There is nothing more precious than that. When you don't believe in yourself it hurts the Almighty God who created you. Belong to any religion and any Yoga group and do any asanaAsan , Asana Position, seat, yogic posture. and posture, I am not against it, that is your waste of time, not mine. You can study in a University for rest of your life, if you are not going to graduate, you are not going to graduate, it's not my job.

The purpose of life is to know yourself and love yourself and trust yourself and be yourself. In that game, name of the game is, in that name of the game you can call me collect, I shall answer you. That is what I enjoy in my life. That's I want you to enjoy and that's what I feel is the purpose of life too. Lot of people love me and lot of people hate me, lot of people like me and dislike me, it doesn't matter. So long they know I am the controversy and there is a prayer of polarity, I am fine. Some people I can't teach, I let them curse me, at least they remember me, it's their outlet for their anger.

Day before yesterday I told one of my girl student, I said, "Early in the morning you should take my pictures, put it on the wall and call it names for thirty-one minutes."

She said, "Why?"

And I said, "I gave you 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. 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. that you couldn't do, at least this you can do."

And she said, "No, no I hate to do it."

I said, "I love you, love you to do it, try it for just three days, I am not asking you more."

She said, "Are you sure?"

I said, "I am deadly sure, three days put my picture on the line and abuse it so hard but thirty-one minutes, it should not be second more."

She did for three days, she said, "Third day I couldn't do it."

I said, "What happened."

She said, "I am very ashamed, you tricked me."

I said, "I am a teacher, it's my job. I have told you many time when your teacher don't trust me, and my job is to test you where your 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. is and trick you, your job is to get out of it, that's called graduation."

(Students' laughter)

And she said, "Why you made me to do it?"

I said, "I just wanted to know that you are conscious enough when thirty-one minutes stops, that's all."

She said, "I know it now better,"

I said, "Do you know when your life will stop and do you know after that you can't do a thing."

Before death if you cannot decide to die consciously, your life in vain, waste.

Purpose of life is not to buy stories and houses and write books and be worshiped and all this, what should I say, nonsense. The purpose in life is before dying you decide consciously how you are going to die. When time is up, time is up, you can't then ballot the vote. It is within that time, which is called life, you have to cast your ballot and you must decide consciously, how you are going to die and what for and what you are going to leave behind, how many people you are going to affect, know, feel, touch basis. You know single man crusade; ten years ago I started going to Rome and started meeting the Pope and started laying my American number, "Hey, papa, now all the kingdom is gone, it is useless, start being the head of papa of the all religion."

He said, "Oh no buddy, we are divided, this and that."

Pope Paul and then John Paul second and now look, on twenty-seventh of October, eight major religion will sit together for peace of the world and pray. At least it's a one step, just to do that. Take a chance and just decide what is the purpose of life, if you have find no purpose in life, then decide how consciously you are going to die. Before you actually die, you can never be poor.

Side B

How you are going to die and you are poor call me collect, I will send you the money. It's such a effective tool, just to know to know, the time and space are not yours. They exist before you, they will exist after you. So don't waste your time on time and don't waste your time on space. Just understand, you are always you and within you, whatever you can experience is yours and how to consciously experience yourself, that is the purpose of the KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual.

There are twenty-two lines of Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Raj Yoga, Gian Yoga, BhaktiBhakti Self-purification, The devotional form of yoga practiced by a Bhakta. Yoga, ShaktiShakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. Yoga, KriyaKriya Literal meaning is "completed action." A Kundalini Yoga Kriya is a sequence of postures and yoga techniques used to produce a particular impact on the psyche, body, or self. The structure of each kriya has been designed to generate, organize, and deliver a particular state or change of state, thereby completing a cycle of effect. These effects have been codified and elaborated by Yogi Bhajan and form the basic tools used in yoga and its therapeutic applications. Yoga, 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.

You know, when I used to teach in UCLA I used to say there are twelve glands, they said no, no, it's medically wrong and later on they found out, yes there are twelve glands and when I used to see KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual.

He opened this long secret tradition to all. through the medical section, I used to tell them how to raise the blood pressure, how to lower it, how to do this, how to do? Doctor used to go berserk, what he is teaching us, what he is doing? I just told them, "It's all here within you, if disease comes it's a dis-ease, if you want to make a healthy dis-ease, make it ease, be easy."

Somebody came to me once, he 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. Bhajan," I know he couldn't call my name. "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. Bahan, I have come to you (?)," crying, I said, "Hey, what are you crying for? What is wrong?"

"Doctor has told (?) nine months."

I said, "If doctor after eight months die, then one month extra is okay?"

"No, no doctor is very young you don't understand, you are always make humor out of things."

I said, "Listen, I can't teach you this, go to so and so Hath 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. ."

"What I am going to do there?"

I said, "Learn Dand Pranam asanaAsan , Asana Position, seat, yogic posture. ."

"What's that?"

I said, "You will become stiff like a rod and you will just bow in ecstasy."

"What will happen?"

I said, "It is also called death posture. And when you will be already dead, what death is going to kill? It will work."

So went to this guy, told him I have been sent by 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, I want to learn this. He called me, he said, "What you have send me, what this dand pranam asanAsan , Asana Position, seat, yogic posture. ?"

I said, "Look, I don't have a time to waste and you know the guy is really in pain and doctor has told him, he is going to die, he wants to live, the very will in his to live is going to cure him. You have to do nothing, cash on it."

He said, "What I have to do?"

I said, "Just tell him to lie down flat and be dead."

(Students' laughter)

Person is still alive. He perfected it.

(Students' laughter)

I am not kidding to you, it is true. Because he believed in him and he experienced death and he could feel it, he could know it and then he realized he is not dead. Moment he realized he is alive, he lived again. His disease left him. Isn't so simple? Oh, you don't believe it, you don't. That is the problem, you don't believe. What you cannot believe you call it miracle. House 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. Guru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs.

Guru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. Ram DasGuru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. , those who loved and believed they excel. Because God created all miracle within Himself. That's the little translation what I said before. So there is no place for a miracle. The greatest miracle is, if you believe that you believe. Greatest miracle is, if you serve your own being for the time being, that's all I wanted to say.

Thank you for having come and provided me this audience, because without you I would not have spoken. I would have gone to a movie, really.

(Students' laughter)

Seen some weird American movie and learn what is going on.

(Students' laughter)

I love to see this bizarre things and then next day I prepare myself on the basis of that, that ridiculous thing, to consciously let people know how we can get out of this stuff. It was nice to have come to Chicago and pushed right here, missed the movie today, so SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Tara Singh have saved few bucks on that, otherwise you know I go, twenty-five people go, he would have been told but, that's perhaps he organized this and tomorrow I will be teaching Tantric course, white Tantric, in which we tune up the Chakras and tomorrow we are teaching actually how to build the body to standardize your immune system against the attacks which will happen pretty soon and if you get a chance, come in, if not, it was nice to see you here and it's wonderful to be with you tonight and the last thing is that God made you and God is within you and without you there is no God, take it or leave it.

Thank you, yes you have something to say?

Student: (----)

YB: Yeah, he, he owns material, spiritual, mental and celestial.

Student: (---)

YB: This Church belong to whom? Who is the master of this Church? Who rules it? Christ. Unfortunately you are talking to a man who is a graduate on Bible. I am a student of Sacred Heart Convent. If you want to discuss Christianity with me, come alone.

Student: (-----)

YB: Don't feel guilty, Christ is still the Lord and there are lot of things held in his name and that is called (?), including those souls who believe in him. Student: (-----)

YB: This very Church is owned by Christ, don't you understand?

Student: (-----)

YB: I think, I think you got to go to a attorney who deals in conscious properties and taxes and call the IRS, I can give you the number. If this Church is not owned by Christ, they will be paying heck of a tax,

(Students' laughter)

Believe me. Your little believe of big belief doesn't make any sense. What Christ does, Christ does and I know what he does. That's what I am saying. It's very difficult to understand when a man like me stand up and say, that's why I told you in the very beginning what I am going to say, you are not going to believe. Because Christ within you own you. You think you stand before a mirror and you look pretty. Have you stood before a mirror and look pretty to Christ this morning? You didn't; I know it, don't tell me, I can read in 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. . So tomorrow when you get up, stand before a mirror look at it and see to you look pretty to Christ or not, you got it?

Student: (-----)

YB: Because (?), that.

Just remember, in all 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. every spirituality, every guidance, every knowledge means to guide you into excellence and that is what is all about?

Yes dear lady.

Student: (-----)

YB: You are absolutely right, telephone number in the Los Angeles, Area Code 213 and SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Tara Singh there, you can sitting right by his side get the number. There are three lines and one of which will answer. If not got him.

Yes dear.

Student: (-----)

YB: Shashara, Ajana, this is thousand petals, this control with the wink of the eye. You have no power to think as a human being. You know that? This Shashara gives you one thousand thought per wink of the eye, out of those thoughts some become emotions, some become feelings, some become desires, some become objectivity to receive and achieve, some become neuroses, some become psychotics and some become the ecstasy in 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. . So it's all in this head. Then you have Ajana, you can check the pros and con and always, be the giver, don't take. If you take you will die with that weight, if you give you will be light and enlightened, then this throat ChakraChakra , Chaakra The word connotes a wheel in action. It usually refers to the seven primary energy centers in the aura that align along the spine from its base to the top of the skull. Each chakra is a center of consciousness with a set of values, concerns, and powers of action associated with it. , if it gives you the sense of ecstasy to speak the positivity of the Lord, the Creator of yours, then you will always be rich and prosperous.

If you ever confine yourself to confinement of your own gain, you shall be poor doesn't matter what you have. Then there is a heart center right here, that means give those who don't deserve and share with those who don't want. Then this is 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. , balance all the good and bad as equal, because they are both sides of the same coin. Bad is as good a God as good is. Because if you see God in every good and not see in the bad, half of the God you are ignoring. Because there is nothing but God and that's the most difficult thing to learn. Then to go to your sexual organ area, that is create which spreads the light and excellence, not which spreads the darkness and drowsiness. Then last which is called human anus, eliminate so that you can live on and in Yoga it is called pratyahar in Hatha Yoga.

These are the seven ChakraChakra , Chaakra The word connotes a wheel in action. It usually refers to the seven primary energy centers in the aura that align along the spine from its base to the top of the skull. Each chakra is a center of consciousness with a set of values, concerns, and powers of action associated with it. and this eighth is the 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. . Be the shield of God and help without question. God will be obligate to fit in, because if you think and consider then you will use your means. When you think and cannot consider and walk in as a person of God, then God has to come through. Because the God has a bigger ego than you.

You know word ego, e-g-o ego and God, G-O-D drop the 'd', drop the 'e' it become go, go, you know what I mean?

(Students' laughter)

So have no problem with God. God has no problem with you, simply walk as having Him within you and it is good and good will bring you lot of goods and goodies and that's called riches.

I have very a simple system to synthesize way to live healthy, happy and holy, that's what 3HO is all about. I started with young people who were just walking naked and they were depressed and in nineteen sixty a revolution started (?) twenty million Americans revolted. Some of them are today hippies, some are like us, you know, that's, we are all byproducts of that revolution, that was the greatest cosmic revolution which never will happen again. Twenty million young people revolted, nineteen million laid their life in sacrifice. Out of one million the ideology is keep going. Some call them flower children, some called them Sikhs, some called them this and some call them that, some called them cult, some call... You know, there are lot of ways to call it. But Americans have the grit and the strength to stand up and say, we want liberty from every nonsense and we want to make sense and that was the greatest revolution which was happening when I came, I participated and I worked with it and I am still working.

That's why when we close our class we always say may the long time sun shine upon you, all love surround you and the pure light within you, guide your way on. We don't say, walk on my way, come to me, I will give you heaven. No, it is our prayer that people should guide themself on their way unto their God.

Just take them to learn it and then discard them. Don't get hooked on a tape. There are some people who see the tape everyday, 'Yogiji I see you, I see you.' I say, 'God bless TV.' "Are you (?) see me in you,"

"Is that is the my purpose?"

I said, "Yes, that is the purpose."

Go from every knowledge beyond, when you become the knowledge.

Yes dear.

Tara Singh here, Kaur, will you both stand up, very shy.

The purpose is all spiritual, let me tell you something very truthfully. People are very afraid that their student are going to go away and their income is going to stop. I have seen every religious person hung on this, my turf; you know and I hate religion when it compromises and I hate a teacher who compromises. And fear is not the way of God. It's total nonsense telling somebody if you won't do this you will die, curse be on you. You know sometime people come to me and they say, "Well, somebody has cursed me."

I say, "Well, say this line, it will go back ten times stronger back to him that's it."

Yes, there is a one line "Alakh Baba Siri Chand dee rakh;" anybody who does black magic or curse or anything shall be caught trapped by it by ten times itself. Why we should bother? Why there to sell KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual.

God has gone on a holiday? Which can rotate this Earth cannot take care the routine of mine? Whom He blessed to come to be with me, he shall be the guide and the guidance. I am not to do anything. I never came here for any other purpose, so I am just pretty free. You know, I don't buy this nonsense, I am very polite in saying that. I feel every man has the right to practice, be himself and every teacher's job is to push him, push him, push.

Religion stops at one thing and that is called Sublimation. Your light and enlighten, that stops it. My religion doesn't stop there. It starts from there. It says crystallize and make all alike. Crystallization is a very powerful thing to do and people do not want to go through that discipline. So it become sometime hard and they split. What different it makes? My job is keep the shop open, my job is to keep the light going, my job is to tell them it is available, their job is to buy it or not. We have no conflict. So I don't want to use those tricks you know, I don't believe in them and they don't work for me.

I have lost millions of dollars, I was in Hollywood you know, all these hanky panky big ones, who you watch, spend five dollar to see them on the screen, were all my students. I made every student of mine eat garlic to get rid of them, true. Because what was the idea to teach a very profound beautiful actress and she goes, KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual.

I though let me, let me work with those who shall become teacher by their own right tomorrow and that was the purpose. Otherwise, this name, fame and whole thing, that was all available and I have seen that, that, that doesn't make any sense to me.

So, I am not saying, some people say, "What is your opinion about that teacher?"

I said, "Great."

"Why?"

"Because I couldn't be that, it's not my turf."

My job is anybody who comes... Even people who come with different teachers, somebody comes he is in Hatha Yoga, I say, "All right, let me correct your posture." It's, no, no good, to just devalue yourself and I don't. Because in God I dwell. When you receive a letter of my thanks, write down, read what is written under it, and that's what I believe. I don't believe any man can do me good or do me any bad. I believe with the hand of God and whatever He wishes shall happen, no problem. He gave me the life, He gave me the death, why should I worry and what for? Isn't ridiculous you worry? Nobody should worry. Millions of gallons of gasoline are required to rotate this planet Earth one day. It rotates automatically, so my routine, why not to enjoy it? It's very practical thing, isn't it? Makes you free. That's called light of liberty which we Americans practice, right and want to dismiss (?) right, we are funny people anyway.

Yes lady.

If we tell you what to eat, that we don't tell you, because we have to sell food. We tell you that will help you to achieve what you are trying to achieve. Because when you eat wine or you drink wine or beer, whatever you, it affects your ions and neurons and it does effect the secretion of the counter clockwise of the pituitary which is your sixth center and it shall effect you whether you like it or not. Scientifically speaking.

Let us pray, please sit down and on chairs and put equal weight on both feet. Let me teach you a prayer, okay and fold your both hands and lock them and put them at your heart center and press it at twenty-five pounds per square inch pressure. Yeah well, you want to pray or not?

(Students' laughter)

You think prayer is a joke? Be scientific about it. Heart center must feel the pressure, to counter the pressure, it will concentrate the life energy and to concentrate the life energy you have to put twenty-five pound pressure per square inch, do you hear it? If you can't do it, you can't. (?) twelve, twelve, twelve pound is fine, but less than that is bad.

Now close your eyes and roll your eyeballs to make a hole in the center of the skull, breathe in deep and feel that you have brought in all the riches of the divine, keeping your body intact in that posture and hold this precious breath, because it is the gift through agent of breath of life that you have the life force and it is the life force which shall attract the magnetic psyche to bring you all the goodies you need. It's a very selfish trip, prayer and now with a cannon fire through the nostril, let it go. Okay relax.

When you are at home do it fifty-two times each day what I have done with you now. Doesn't matter what you are suffering with, it will run away like a mad dog, simple thing, let it be my gift to you, thank you.

(Students clap)

Student: Thank you, tremendous amount to assimilate, I am sure...
