... Where is your husband?

In the western world 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. was not given importance because to cut off the western people from the eastern in spite of the fact that in Christianity chanting the naamNaam , Nam The manifested identity of the essence. The word derives from Naa-ay-ma , which means "that which is not, now is born." A Naam gives identity, form, and expression to that which was only essence or subtle before. It is also referred to as the Word. of Jesus Christ and playing the rosary was a part of the Christian religion. But what happened is, when it came to change towards the protestants group, decidedly that part was totally ignored. And it was considered even today that anybody who meditates or chants or do these kind of things is away from Christianity he worships the devil and not the God.

Taking for granted the western Christian world worship the one God then there should be no problem, they should have no mental, physical, spiritual problem at all. Granted that the eastern world was conquered by the western missionary and granted for two thousand years eastern world was not given a chance to breathe, granted that two thousand years the western took away all the raw materials from the eastern land and built up the western machinery, granted that, which are the historical facts. Granted this tremendous exploitation.

Now take for example if the Arabs would have sold oil in the very beginning as twenty dollars a barrel we would not have got a one heated house in entire United States of America with oil which would have been only with the firewood. And the entire firewood have gone in the heating of the homes and not a single square foot of wood would have been exported. If all the copper and the nickel of the African country would have been sold at a reasonable rate to the west there would not have been a profit at all. Profit making and becoming a great nation can be learned in the modern times from the British kingdom. Britain was a great empire, sun never set on it and now sun never rises there. That's the one example in the most modern time in history you can see. The great Britain is so depressed today and every person is so depressed today they do not know what to do with all the glory they have.

So glory cannot hold you, money cannot hold you, profit cannot hold you, vastness cannot hold you. What can hold you as a man, as a individual unit, as a combined unit which is a nation, which is a kabila which is called group or which you call a religion or a specific religion with specific practice is called denomination, if the mind of the person is given chance to be pure. If there is some ritual, some rite performed each day to clean the mind. There is no fight about it, because you have three bodies, one is a spiritual body, other is a mental body, third is a physical body. If all the stress and strain is to clean the physical body, keep the physical body going, cater to the physical body socially, mentally and spiritually.

I tell you the example. There was a one lady with me she said, "Yogiji I love you the most."

I said, "Oh yeah you hate me the most."

"Oh how can you say that?"

I said, "Look at you; anything which I tell you which can affect physically right, you can look younger, you can look beautiful, physically you will be healthy, you do that. But anything ever I have told you which will mentally help you, you have never done it. Now your mind is berserk, it's a bizarre mind with absolute beauty, physical. Now what should I do?

"I have a great spirit," she said.

I said, "I know, that's why I am hassling you trying to tell you, you have a great spirit, but spirit flows through mind."

If there is a pond of nectar, it flows through the sewage and then come to the city, will you drink it? Body is like city and mind in between is a like a sewage tank and spirit is a like a nectar, who wants it. Who wants anybody of you in this country, you are two hundred twenty million Americans all suffering because of a mental degradation and sixty percent people live under depression, this is our national figure and I am equally a good American as you are. Nobody is willing to say this painful thing. So much ultra phobia has overtaken Americans as a nation, they don't want to listen to criticism.

From last ten years I am telling Americans time has come for you to end your sleep and lethargy, wake up and do something about the mind, every nation who has done nothing about mind has gone round down the tube. And some people listen to me like 3HO but they are not all done all what is needed to be done. They did ten percent, twenty percent, fifty percent, but question is not 3HO people, question is not Buddhist or Jews or Christians or... We have a problem as Americans. Our mind is not together I know this has a problem sometime people tell me sir do a miracle, what miracle you can do on a stone.

(Students' laughter...)

When you meet stone headed people... I am successful to a certain extent I change the diet of the people, I change the wearing habits of the people. I know because they only relate to physical they are so dumb they do not have the sophistication to go deep right into the base of the problem. All right, let us change the front and let us go inside and do something. After all, we as people have to live in this country and if we are people then we have to have a mind which can stand every strain, do you understand? When I say depression doesn't make good impression, I say it very laughingly but inside my heart I live with baboons.

(Students' laughter...)

This is my simple way of communication, mentally I know that people are not mentally steady. Americans are known in the entire universe as window shoppers. Nobody trust American foreign policy, we are not trusted as a nation. When all the billions of dollars we spend in foreign aid. Somebody once asked me a question in Washington, "Sir, how our dollar can be saved?"

I said, "We are foolish, we gave Japan our technology, we gave Japan our security, we take care of its defense, we should have told Japan in the agreement we'll charge you thirty three percent of your budget for defense purposes." Our dollar would never have gone below under Yen, we would have done the same thing to Germany. Normally every country spend forty percent to fifty percent on it's defense budget we are providing the entire defense to all these countries and they are doing us in and we do not know how to save ourselves, great America. We are raising our taxes, our people are living on welfare, our people are eating left-out in the great markets, why? There is a mental disorder, you have to agree to that and we have to learn. That is why this class we may be ten people, we are four people or ten, twenty people, that doesn't make any difference.

There is a feeling in America now that we have to change our mind, we have to take care of our mind, we have to control our mind, we have to relate to our mind. We cannot go on. It is not physically, mentally and spiritually possible a man cannot live near happiness, I am making an explanation. Man cannot live near happiness if man cannot live near his mental capacity. Mental capacity is not a physical capacity. Mental capacity is not a spiritual capacity. Now I give you a shock of life. Spiritual capacity of every individual is equal, physical capacity of everybody is varying, mental capacity is the compensating balancing factor, without that man cannot become a fulfilled person.

Thousands of years ago it was recognized. I don't ask people not to drink wine, or hard liquor. I say you must drink. Sometime some people I gave ten, fifty, twenty dollars and asked them to get off my back and go and drink, because what you can tell a pig, pig is a pig. You can't tell a pig to become a horse. If you expect a pig to become a horse, it means there is something wrong with you. If a person is totally blowing up and he doesn't know how to concentrate and how to clean his mind and he doesn't want to do anything about it, the best suggestion is what the medical doctors do. When a man is in pain, it means he cannot go for a self control, then they put him on a sleeping injection, they give him a injection, he'll sleep through the pain.

You ask why people drink liquor. Nobody with a sane self control needs liquor, nobody with a sane self control needs even any food which has any stimulating quality. TamasTamas One of the three basic qualities of nature (gunas). It represents heaviness, slowness, and dullness. It is inertia and confusion. food meat, eggs, liquor, it is called TamasTamas One of the three basic qualities of nature (gunas). It represents heaviness, slowness, and dullness. It is inertia and confusion. food. Acidic food, it has directly relationship to stimulate the liver, it's not the criteria of a human being.

I wish sometime if the circumstances permit I'll call my personal friend, he is a punditPundit A Hindu who is learned in scripture. , very wise man; he is as skinny as a bamboo stick, he eats nothing but rice and yogurt, nothing, no salt, no sugar. He'll boil the rice, have the yogurt, put it together and eat it. He is so intelligent he can act better than a computer, he is very well read man. He is a professor, he is very skinny, but if five people want to hold him he can beat all the five and can go free. They call him steel bone man. Normal person, he can afford a car and once I asked him I said, "Punditji why don't you buy the car?"

He said, "I have it."

I said, "Why don't you travel in it?"

First I wanted to be sure that car which is always I see in his home is his.

He said, "Yes, I have got a car." But he said, "I am meant to walk four miles an hour and I want to keep it that way."

Where he teaches and where he lives the distance is ten miles. And he does it exactly in two hours. He likes it, he calls himself a founder member of the walking team club. He times himself to go everywhere where he has to go with a walking distance by measuring the distance and his walking capacity. In certain cases where time doesn't permit, he use cycle, he call himself, he calls the cycle exercise pedal. He has funny names to think. I watched the life of this man and I found out that though he is not a professional 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. , it is most difficult to provoke him.

The greatest weakness in mind is when you can be provoked, then you act like an animal.

When you go people's party why they ask you to drink first? Because you should be off your feet. Have you seen a party without drink, nobody talks like duck. Now what is a party of silent people? When you are sane then you have to make sense, you have to talk sense and party means to talk anything you have to talk. So they give you little brandy, little this, little that and relaxes you to the extent you do not know what you are talking. All these social things which we do is subject to our relaxation of mind which actually is practical burdening our mind with more and more garbage and less and less clarity. Less clear mind means more unhappiness, clear mind which means happiness. If mind is twenty four karat, you are divine, eighteen carat you are a human, fourteen carat you are existent, ten carat you are a nuisance, four carat you are a animal, three carat you are a devil. Mind has a carats too of purity and clarity. Clearer the mind, superior is the Divinity of the person and enjoyable is his fixture.

There is a one beauty which you have never enjoyed, it is called mental beauty. Mental beauty is extremely beautiful and it is beyond every physical appearance. If you can be convinced that this mental person is mentally beautiful person you shall seek that person through every thick and thin. That's why in our country our marriage relationships are so so, because there is a physical union, there can be spiritual union, they may be walking on the same spiritual path. There is a physical union because they are legally married, but sometime it takes fifty years to get mental union. Mentally people never get united soon.

There is a much less thing in this country called understanding because nobody stand under each other. Everybody wants to overtake another person. I have experienced that as a spiritual teacher, I have found out that if you give one opinion to one person at the same time it may be most accurate opinion, all you have is a rebellion on your hand. People are rebels here, because their mental capacity cannot take a opinion, so why you give a opinion. If I want to abuse anybody, the greatest abuse I have used against my student is relax and rejoice. In practical honestly what I am saying is you are a dumb idiot, you are not reachable at all, there is no faculty in your auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. that you can understand a human life therefore relax and rejoice. Because mental capacity is not what you say, mental capacity is what you have the capacity to hear. Mental capacity is not measured by what you talk, what you represent, mental capacity is how concentratedly you can hear the unheard. How sharp you are to read between the lines. And how much capacitated you are to act and produce. Mental capacity is equal to performance from the impossible to the possible, done in a steady state of mind and that is the art of the individual.

So we will stimulate certain areas of our this canolope which we carry on the shoulders very proudly so that the organic situation may become physically fit. Our physical organs are so unused, brain is used maximum three point quarter percent can you believe that? Ninety six point quarter percent of our faculty of the brain is not used by a very intelligent hundred twenty I Q person. Then why He gave it? God had a purpose to give it, we don't care for that purpose. All right let us see what we can do.

In this 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. which you are participating we are stimulating the inner combination of our faculty to understand things much quickly than we understand, we are very dumb people you don't understand, it is not something which we have to figure it out, it is very easy. Any danger in the atmosphere is understandable by the animal by a sensitivity of nature, his mind is made that way, though they have a very small brain, their faculty of brain is very limited. But through the power of the super sensitivity of smell and sound they can protect themselves. But as far as human is concerned human becomes at maturity so dull, such a dull that it loses all its sensitivity.

After eighteen years to twenty-five years of age all men are sensitively sexual, all other senses are undermined. At the age of sixteen to twenty-seven every woman is sexually activated, all other senses are undermined, net result after thirty-three all men and all women sexually, sensually, materially, physically, personally, individually, psychologically, numerologically, metabolically suffer, all. Because this sensitivity, connection with the brain is lost in contact and there is gap, there is nothing to relate to. Do you understand what I am saying? Does it make sense to you? This activity of sensuality, I am not saying sexuality, sensuality includes everything, from a dream masturbation to a physical, sexual outrageous act. And after the age of thirty-three you will find all people who are sensually activating are on one kind of another drug. Including booze, isn't surprising?

This physical body is made to act on two pounds of yogurt a day, that is your total require one banana and for vitamin B12 fragment fruit which is called chutney that's all is the total requirement (?). It is not the bulldozer of your hand which can do a job, it is the nerve of the hand which perform the performance.

All right please, put this together like this, this is my left hand, my heart side we are now making certain combination of heart and head, these two fingers, try to understand today this is a very small class and very simple exercise but it is a very highly technical, so do it that way. These two fingers must be pressed by this thumb, these two fingers straight and the hand is diagonal, right, these two fingers are pressed exactly that way and these two fingers are straight like steel and hand is moving, eyes are totally set, hand moves like a pendulum over those two fingers and keep on watching this movement, it will give you a interest and boredom both. It can countably countable as many time your mind can relate to this movement as an activity you will not feel bored, when your mind will flip out you will feel a feeling of a boredom, you can count those movements. If you can concentrate in this eighty percent then you have a normal mental capacity. Sixty percent is below normal, forty percent is that you have a mental capacity in defective side. See your eyes are fixed on that movement, your eyes goes with the pendulum hand. It doesn't matter what your age is, this is one practice through which you can force your mind to rest.

Okay you understand this? Now relax. You have relaxed in exactly minute and a half. But if you do it for eleven minutes that's the time for this, you can always, you can do it for experiment when you are very worried, you do not know how to sleep and this is how we do it. Sa Ta Na Ma, Sa Ta Na Ma, this is how I control my eye mind, eye mind they call it, third eye mind. Now this is a very secret exercise which I did it lot of years and I do it sometime very privately even now just to keep myself going.

Sa Ta Na Ma, Sa Ta Na Ma, Sa Ta Na Ma it's a easiest way to perfect 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. . Sa Ta Na Ma and see how automatically my hands move, watch it, it's just a matter of practice, sometimes you don't. Sa Ta Na Ma Sa Ta Na Ma Sa Ta Na Ma.

You will be shocked, these hands will become as heavy as lead, you will go on seeing things which you don't want to see. There will be such a tremendous release of subconscious you will think you are a nothing but a garbage can. The mantraMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind.

You say, no, no, no, no, I am not this, this is something. But gradually all that what you don't relate to will go away and something you can relate to will come but it will take time.

Now there is a second exercise which is, this is what we have done about the mind is part of 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. yogaKundalini 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. but I'll give you equivalent of the hatha yoga for the fun of it.

Stretch your legs straight forward, put your heels together and widen your feet like open, heels must touch, it's very funny that sometime your heels won't touch, can you believe that? You never normally don't believe it and they are not going to touch even after a while though you are in perfect shape. Put your hands on the side, either make a fist like this or hands like this and raise your buttocks. There should be no pressure on the buttocks, the total weight of the upper body should be on the hand.

All right now concentrate on the tip of your nose and eight stroke breathe in, eight stroke and then eight stroke breathe out and please continue. Concentrate on the tip of the nose, all right just to tell you how powerful it is we'll do it for a short while.

Hey doctor, get into a platform you are too much bent on the low, you are not carrying your weight right.

Weight will be tremendous, weight will be on the back of the heel and horrible weight on the wrist. Concentrate on the tip of the nose and breathe.

Sa Ta Na Ma, Sa Ta Na Ma, eight times and same way exhale, mantraMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind. Tra-ng is the wave or movement of the mind.

I know you require a practice to do it but to start with to give you little experience so that you can have confidence you got to do it now also. Look at the tip of your nose, your eyes, the optical nerve will try to confuse you.

You have to do it about two more minutes though I know you have started feeling miserable. Because you don't have a practice but still we want the physical help, keep your elbows straight and let the pressure be on the elbow, we know where we are putting the pressure, pressure is on the shoulders and on the elbow, that's okay. Okay relax, we exactly put you to three minutes, you know how miserable you look?

Now there is a variety of it, variety of it is stretch your legs, I will not let you do longtime but I will give you the variety only. Put your hands straight on the ground and take your buttocks totally off and put the body in a absolute slant of sixty degrees. Hands will go little backwards, you are right, we call it platform pose or launching pose.

Yes honey put the body up. Yeah, okay now I am telling you the real business as we did it and became the masters and raise your left leg up, ahaha yes and now breathe.

Student: (-------)

YB: Eight parts. Okay now relax I don't want to give you punishment, practice at home. Now I tell you what it is.

On each leg raised you have to do eleven breaths inhale and exhale and then change the leg, it is such a competent technology that you can separate, split your left side and right side of the brain and control both of them under your own will. The coordinating action of supplementing each part of the brain is the rightful part of the brain, but you have no individual control. This will give you individual era of control plus total control on the combined situation.

This has been found out one of the kirya to alter the destiny by self help. It is one of the few exercise which physically, mentally and spiritually can give you what actually you need to be a human. It can be perfected in year or two years time. It should be done regularly everyday for eleven minutes for first three months, then twenty-two minutes and then finally thirty-three minutes; every three minutes every three months add eleven minutes till you can do for sixty six minutes. And if anybody who is sitting in this room can competently examine himself mantraMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind. Tra-ng is the wave or movement of the mind.

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. is Sa Ta Na Ma eight stroke. If you can competently do it, then I'll send you the bill because...

Student: (-------)

YB: Yeah.

Because the competency can be so heavy that you have not to call anybody mentally, just say such and such should have called me and after couple of minutes you will have the telephone ringing for you, you can develop infinite telepathy. I know it is a long way to go but then it becomes, the world becomes too short. I developed a telepathy to the accurate sense that if somebody can read somewhere a book I can totally reread that book. People sometime ask me why I don't study anything on the books. I don't have to. Somebody has to do it and I have to just have to reread sitting anywhere I can do that. But in difficulty in America is here such clear minds are not available. You are not to go to the library and read the whole library. All it has to be do is you concentrate your mind faculty in library and anybody who is reading you can be just in second whatever he has read in twenty hours you can just get it in, one split of a second, it's all yours.

These are the ordinary faculties of the human mind, ordinary faculties. Ordinary faculty, and I tell you the faculty of the mind in the sexual sense.

Narad came to Lord Krishna, he said, "Lord, you are competent and complete but I have a problem."

He said, "Yes, great man what is the problem?"

He said, "Sir, you have eighteen thousand wives, they worship you, they love you and you must not have time to have intercourse with anybody, what are you doing with the eighteen thousand women?"

He said, "Nothing, I do nothing, what you want?"

He said, "Give me one."

He said, "All right, today when sunset to sun dawn all the eighteen thousand women you go if you find anybody free, that's yours; as many free, that's yours."

Narad who was the supreme of his mind, satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down he said, "Why to go physically, mentally I can check everybody." Wherever he concentrated he found cohabitation with lord Krishna.

In the morning lord Krishna said, "Narad how many women you found last night?"

He said, "God forget it, I am sorry even I questioned you. I mentally approached them and I screened them, you are so much in their mind in the rasa, that lord they have not to cohabit with you in physical sense they are mentally, totally merged in you, there was no vacancy."

Mind of worship is a mind of no vacancy, you want to meditate on Christ, you want to meditate on 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. , you want to meditate on 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. Ram DasGuru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. , you want to meditate on BuddhaBuddha An enlightened one; founder of the Buddhist faith. , when your mind has no vacancy in the direct stimulation of taking that rasa of that nectar, then your worship is complete; whether you are a Christian, Buddhist, Muslim I don't care who you are, but my problem is you are not a human being to begin with. Because you don't have a human mind. You do rituals for which I am very grateful to all of you, but rituals are rituals, rituals are never reality. If you go and see a performance on a movie bah-bah-bah wa wa wa beautiful, beautiful when the screen is over you are over with it.

That is why we say one who gets up in the ambrosial hour of the day and does SadhanaSadhana , Saadhana A spiritual discipline; the early morning practice of yoga, meditation, and other spiritual exercises. The Aquarian Sadhana can be an individual or group practice; Ideally, it includes the recitation of Japji Sahib, a Kundalini Yoga kriya, and chanting the Aquarian Sadhana meditations, immediately followed by Gurdwara. According to Yogi Bhajan, the potency of any Kundalini Yoga and meditation practice will be enhanced in a group setting. gradually clears the mind and becomes a pure minded person, clear minded person, such person walks on the path of humanity.

By the way ambrosial hours are those hours when 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. and men of God leave their bodies to survey the world and men of earth definitely snore at that time. It's a time...

Side-B

...

And she said, "I made it up myself."

And she is doing it from last forty years. She does nothing, she gets up in the morning and she does this exercise. And she bet her age, she thought she read somewhere that without the master's guidance one does not get fulfilled. So she thought I am a master so she came and asked me a very simple question and I said, "It is perfect, simply make little change. Say God, God, God, God, God, God, God." And I explained her when you direct the magnetic field energy in any pendulum form, also try to direct the energy in a direct dip, because that way when the time of death comes you control your mind and direct the mind towards God at your will, mind cannot at that time direct you through your 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. .

The secret of life and death is at the time of the coma of death which is couple of minutes in which man is shown the entire panorama of his life or her life, then in lieu of that what one sees, what one does all cheating, all sexuality, all sensuality, all activity, all positivity, all 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. , everything you have done bad and good is shown to you. And you judge yourself and condemn yourself and then your mental body directs your spiritual body to take that direction, that's the law of death. Nobody comes and judge you, God has no many spare angels to come and sit on your head forget it you will do it the part of your mind does it if you know the experience of death and death after, which unfortunately I have also very well of it, it's a very simple phenomena. So creatively you can develop your mind to be free and free in absolute form.

This 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. gives you a polarity of sensitivity; may be after one year or two years or three years but it's a hard exercise, I am not saying you should all do I just wanted to tell you there is a possibility. Then not only you can see things, you can see the unseen, you can hear the unheard, you can know the unknown and your mind becomes very clean and power becomes very competent and life becomes very beautiful. Because life comes to a point where there is no question. One thing main in your life is you can question, why it is happening? You know it already why it is happening, why you bother about it.

You have come two days to be with me, you have spent time, you have tried to learn. Our times are going to be very hard and harsh, if we can have our minds very clear then we can go through those hard times very pleasantly, otherwise we can expect lot of difficulty. This planet earth will present many challenges in these coming twenty years or twenty-one years as you are talking about unexpected challenges. So we have to have unexpected mental sharpness to find the answer.

Thank you very much, God be with you.

The class sings: "May the long time sunshine upon you..."

There are my ways and there are your ways and there are our ways and there are ways and ways, God blesseth those who walk on God's way one God has one way and that is the path of righteousness. Those who dwell on that infinite righteousness in the name of God or God's virtue, all virtues of divine dwell in such human being. That is the word of God and that's the promise of God, whosoever shall dwell on me I shall dwell in him, may our virtues take us through the meditative mind of clear essence and we may follow God's way.

You are very young and I want to share with you one very phenomenon. I was initiated in this phenomenon when I was three years old, my grandfather taught me,

'Ghar jawani touba kardam shevai paigamberese, waqt-e-peeri, gurgazalam, eishwar parvezar.'

It's a Persian language which I am speaking. And it's a Persian couplet. There was a great philosopher and a poet and a divine person in Persia who wrote Gulistan and Bostaan these are two books; unfortunately for you they have not been translated in English. This sentence is a one sentence which was given to me as a first anchor of my life.

'Ghar jawani touba kardam shevai paigamberese, waqt-e-peeri, gurgazalam, eishwar parvezar.'

This is a translation I am doing to you. If you want to say no to something say it when you are young and youthful, otherwise like a bloody wolf when he loses all his teeth to become a vegetarian is useless, you understand? If you want to get rid of any bad habits get rid of it when you are young it's a act of Pygamber, messenger of God. One who accepts the message of God when he is young becomes the messenger of God, don't you understand I have eyes, ears, nose, all everything for you, you have come to listen to me, I have come to tell you. Why? Because I dwell on God and you want to dwell on God, that's the relationship. But if you follow my path it's a very simple path, dwell on God, all paths meets there you will be in control of everything. You can always change it when you are young because when it's old wolf who has lost his teeth to become a vegetarian is a joke.

'Ghar jawani touba kardam shevai paigamberese, waqt-e-peeri, gurgazalam, eishwar parvezar.'

Ghar jawani touba kardam-now I am giving you literal meaning, Ghar jawani touba kardam-in the youth I you say toba, toba means I won't do it, shevai paigamberese, sheva means act, Pygamber means messenger of God, shevai paigamberese, it's a act of messenger of God. To get rid of negative or bad things when you are young. Waqt-e-peeri gurgazalam-at the old age the bloody wolf, meishwar parvezar-he said, 'no, no, I am, I am, I am not taking anything wrong, I am not doing any killing, I am not eating any meat anymore, I am a vegetarian,' it doesn't sound right.

Therefore same way if you have not started yesterday and you have heard me today start today so that tomorrow can be yours. My advice to you is in one sentence-if you can start today tomorrow is yours; that is my motto of life, that's why I have a infinite patience. I don't feel upset with anybody because I always say God take away everything from everybody except his hope, hope is the final thing. You all have a hope, keep it that way, even you start today if you have not started yesterday tomorrow is yours.

Thank you very much now you can have tea and cookies and I have to talk to some people.
