Come on, come on, come on you might be aware that Yoga is just, Yoga is just postures and Yoga is extraordinary energy. There are so many aspects Yoga is this, Yoga is that, sometime you freak out to figure out what Yoga is. Today we will do only one simple thing it's called Bhoj 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. . Bhoj is called food, Bhoj means food, KriyaKriya Literal meaning is "completed action."

It will look so ridiculous to you, to do this thing and you should freak out doing so, because you do not have sense, patience and energy to energize the only food you live by so that you can live well. We don't do the prayer God bless us giving me food that's not true that's a lie. But you have been trained to pay before you eat, so that you can be calm, quite and you can concentrate. Doesn't matter what food you eat if the juices do not tally with your body the same food becomes poison. This morning we have a ranch program, a new program, everybody shall get up 5 o'clock and shall report to meditate. 6 o'clock they will meet in the lawn and they do one hour exercises, we did this morning lot of people threw out, fine.

(Student's laughter)

Because if you have a body and that threw up was better.

They say, "We want to throw up."

I say, "Go ahead and do it body is ejecting what body doesn't need what is wrong in throw up. If that what you have to throw up will go back into the body it will become poison." We poison our body that's what I say. Bring with you the dish you like the most and see what you have to do. Now put your dish before you as you are being served in a restaurant and food is before you exactly that way. And those who have no food they can loan it. And there is no spoon to be used, remember. You have to use your hands only. That's why I ate, because I have to teach I can't eat and okay are we in shape? Everybody has been served his food by himself before him. I told you to bring towels don't mess up the Hacienda de Guru Ram Das , The Ashram The grounds of Yogi Bhajan's traditional home and ranch in Espanola, NM, as well the surrounding businesses, gurdwara and langar hall. ashramHacienda de Guru Ram Das , The Ashram The grounds of Yogi Bhajan's traditional home and ranch in Espanola, NM, as well the surrounding businesses, gurdwara and langar hall. Ashram , Aashram A community of practitioners who come together to live conscious, mindful lives. grounds, I was the right. You have been not taught this before and you do not know what you are going to go through but God it's pretty good stuff. How many of you didn't bring water with you?

(YB's laughter)

You Americans, you see water is not a part of it, water is not part of your food?

(Student's laughter)

You drink always one or two sips of water before you even start eating. Because moment the water goes in stomach it will stimulate the juices and moment the water joins them they will be ready to become digestive rather than concentrated. Mind you, you are not hungry it's the juices in the stomach which is asking for the food. It's a biorhythm method and you didn't bring water, good. Now what should I do? Now suppose there is a water.

(Student's laughter)

Now what should I do? This is the way no I can't I have to teach you how to eat you do not know how the hell to eat so I have to start from alphabetically, all right. Put your food,

(YB's laughter)

I wish I should have said bring your water bottle but anyway it's okay. Now please sit calmly and fold your hand not like this but these fingers must meet, end of the fingers must meet and hand must meet, this mountain must meet, every part of the body must meet very folded, very powerfully totally together, totally together and close your eyes and feel you are going to be blessed. You are going to be blessed and calm down and calm down and calm down and empty yourself to receive the gift of God. If there is no emptiness nothing will come in. You are receiving a best gift of God it is for your nourishment, for your acceleration, for your healing, for your purity. It is something today at this moment marvelously wonderful, blessful, blissful. Please concentrate, please now bow down for a second for prayer just little not much. Okay please open your eyes and touch your hands like touch your shoulders sign of strength. Touch your knees sign of strength, touch your heart sign of compassion and touch your forehead like this and then please put the food before you as it is served and put your hand on it to bless it, concentrate and bless your own food calmly and quietly make a relationship with your food and your spirit, your soul.

Just calm and quite a saint blesses its own-self. There is a God in you feel it, feel the food piece-by-piece touch it and request it that when you become part of it and it becomes part of you there is a union, you are having a union, you are having a intercourse. This food will become part of you and you will become part of it. Now this food is identity now it is between you and your identity now. Once it goes in, it can give you gas, it can give you indigestion, it can mess you up, it can create poison in the man, it may not digest it all, it may mess up your colon, your descending colon. It may come through such a heavy that you wish you should have never eaten it, therefore create friendship, create love, create grace, create respectfulness. You and your food become one, cut down the rudeness I am going to eat it, I am going to swallow it, I am going to have it, you have time, you have space, you have grace, you have blessing and you are blessing your own today so it can serve you tomorrow.

Now you have to touch it, look at it and feel it exactly, you have to mentally you do daydream anyway, you have to mentally talk to your food, ask it what you are going to do to me, talk to your food. It's very difficult for you, you are Western, you want to drive a car, talk on a telephone and eat it to start up and if there is a car has a commode you want to go bathroom at the same time. But this is not life, animals don't live that way, you are a human touch it, feel it, discuss with it and just tell it I selected you, I cooked you, I brought you here to become part of me. Create a very graceful relationship, relationship of understanding, affection and love. I have seen a man 120 year old absolutely healthy. His total 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. life was the preparation of his Bhoj 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. fantastic man I saw him doing it. What I read in the scripture was just nothing, what he did was so graceful. Actually I thought if he gives his plate to me all I eat it he can do it again it was so good. Now do you feel ready?

Now please with your hands choose what you are going to eat and eat thing must be touched by five fingers at a little portion with five fingers all energy in it with your fingers. And whatever little portion you have put in your mouth like a kiss get it in and then chew it. Your saliva must become part of it 25% of the food. Chew it totally, freely, openly it's not something that you have to keep your lips closed, some of you have habit to eat puch, puch, puch do that that's not, that's not bad. But each morsel now you have to put it must have 25% of its size saliva mixed and you have the capacity and that is most nurturing, health giving, young making stuff it's right in your mouth. Chew it, don't swallow it I have not said so. All I said is chew it, mix it, grind it, whatever you do puch, puch it, but keep going you can't swallow it. That has to be in your mouth no inside party business straight and now with your tongue feel is there anything hard or it is all one packet. It will be total jelly, feel with your tongue and put your tongue around to get some little more juice into it.

Now bring it to your tip of the tongue and find out is it sweet enough? If it's not keep chewing it. Now very slowly take it in and you have to take it through the throat many times and with a tongue clean your mouth around your teeth, inside up you know clean your mouth once for all. Isn't a shame to middle age people I am teaching how to eat? But no, it's a yogiYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. KriyaKriya Literal meaning is "completed action."

Now just see your mouth is all clean there is nothing in it. There should be not one trace of that whole thing you put in your mouth check it around. All right then go to the food again look at it, look at this, look at it talk to this guy and then take a small portion and very affectionately put in your mouth and just remember all five fingers must touch it and same way chew it. Looks ridiculous but in the end we will discuss it whether we were ridiculous before or we are ridiculous now.

Any person who doesn't have a time to nurture himself is sick to start with. Now calmly and quietly in this procedure please eat. Each time you have to repeat it, you have to totally create a hypnotic relationship with this food today it's going to be part of you, you are going to be part of it and there are certain thing I will tell you in the end if you do it right, there is no hurry. And each time your mouth should be totally clean and absolute clear of its existence before you put second one and you chew it and you have to see taste of everything. Whenever food in the mouth cannot go to the throat into the stomach until it is sweet to your tongue and I tested that day green chili I really my tongue is numb today and it was so bitter somehow it happens you know. I numb my tongue but I still made it sweet before I got it in. And it's my request to you that do this just for experiment very perfectly. We are not going to hurry, there is nothing we have to go, weather is clean, cool and we are already in the heaven of the Earth it's called Espanola we are not in Albuquerque, so enjoy your time, concentrate on the food, meditate on it.

What I am trying to make you experience is the food, which we just gulp in fifteen minutes if you procedurely eat it, it will become your best friend, your best strength and your best-self. Your entire nervous system moves when you move your mouth and tongue together. I want you to feel it, I want you to understand it, I, I know we should just gulp it and go to movie you know, you swallow things you don't eat. When things you swallow they swallow your strength, your life, then nothing left of you. I didn't do any hard exercise they were just simple exercises, which I used to put my officer through training and I could not believe it. How pain everybody became and they were not much three minutes each. When you put in your mouth and morsel it should have touch of all five fingers (?) Jupiter, Saturn, Sun and Mercury. And you can understand your mental strength within another three minutes you should start freaking out, even eating. Slow eating is one of the biggest 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. on this Earth that's why GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. gave us lungarLangar , Lungar Free kitchen associated with Sikh worship service. . LungarLangar , Lungar Free kitchen associated with Sikh worship service. mean anchor, ship has a lungarLangar , Lungar Free kitchen associated with Sikh worship service. , word lungarLangar , Lungar Free kitchen associated with Sikh worship service. came from anchor.

All the sea going ship will have a anchor, when they put a anchor they are stabilized then the storm cannot take them away that's why the word lungarLangar , Lungar Free kitchen associated with Sikh worship service. is, lungars mean anchor of the ship. And the other word we have is teg deg, deg is the sword of righteousness and teg is the food of righteousness. The Deg is what you prepare spiritually, respectfully as a offering, teg you all know. Between the sword of righteousness and the part of righteous food we live. Now don't look left and right look at your food, you have two things going, you, your food and your energy. You are going to baptize each morsel, each part of your food, each little bit of it.

I saw a man drinking a glass of milk he will sip one, take it around the mouth three times and then he will swallow it.

One day I asked him because I say, "What is the secret of you look so young you are 84."

He say, "I am BuddhaBuddha An enlightened one; founder of the Buddhist faith. Tari." BuddhaBuddha An enlightened one; founder of the Buddhist faith. Tari is people who live on the milk.

I say, "Wait a minute everybody drinks milk what kind of milk you drink?"

He say, "Well come sometime I will show you." He did the whole ceremony and I think I could have drink about 8 glasses of milk within that one time he just did it once. He sip it very slowly and then he kept it and kept it and kept it swallow it. One glass of milk it was about 12 ounces took him 45 minutes. I timed it he was absolutely not upset he was totally into it, he never looked at me, never answer my question or anything showed any curiosity he was into the glass of milk, the way he picked it up O my God. Japanese has tea ceremony. I went to this mountain they have there is a institute I was invited there I gave a talk. So they took me to tea ceremony.

I say, "Wow I will get some sandwiches and is a fun." So for that fun unfortunately I went three and half hour it took. So before I could sip it and then took a hour and half to sip it and finish the ceremony. It was five straight hour ceremony.

And I say, "God nobody wants to conquer this country I don't know why we American did it." A cup of tea can be taken in Japan exactly in five hours, three and a half hour to prepare the cup of tea believe me I was a part of it and I was a holy man therefore I couldn't move and everything they did they look at me and I have to not and by the end my eyes was right and my neck was exercise and I had finished my 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. of the planet, and then I thought now we can swallow it and have fun. No you have to sip it, you have to sip it and they were reading some mantrasMantra 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. and when they do like this then you again, then you go again. By the time I came out of the ceremony I wondered how anybody can even do it. Come on now be nice to your food that's the only friend of the night today you have it and one thing wrong you will do, in your own mouth after chewing properly giving to your body you must test its sweetness. You must Oh 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. TeerathTeerath Sacred place. you brought some food, is that enough? I have some good dish if you want you might not have tasted all year, you want some?

(Student's laughter)

It's very good but you have to ask it is in a ceremony otherwise I would have send it voluntarily yes what he said? Good give him this. If you can eat these artichokes the way I learn first time it was about three hours to finish one artichoke, but they are two you will need six hours, which is all right. They are very well made, leaf-by-leaf, touch-by-touch O my God you know how they eat artichoke. The best food made by God for liver. There is nothing more healing for the liver and cleansing the liver than artichoke. Choke means what you put when you give more gas to the car it's automatic, it's artichoke they spell it differently.

(Student's laughter)

I saw this hairy stuff.

I say, "Who will eat it?" But it's very good, if made well, you eat it properly, leaf-by-leaf and you do that, you go through it it's very tasty. Well, you are being timed and somehow when you have little food or big food you have to finish it in exactly thirty-five minutes.

(Student's laughter)

And it has to be very good and very slow. Every morsel you put it must touch five fingers in your mouth you must touch with a tongue that is a sweet until it's not perfectly sweet you do not cross it in your throat. What happened to you? You finished in one minute hey give her this.

(Student's laughter)

And you go through the total ceremony nicely otherwise you are near me this whole bucket will come on you if you don't behave proper come on be nice. You can get this only in Espanola or in New York and that is only one restaurant. That's karaprasad you (?).

(YB's laughter)

(Student's laughter)

It is so good unbelievable well spread wow it's nothing keep chewing. You can't forget you are a German because you are the only one who get beets is that beet? Staple food of Germany you know, don't look at my face whatever I am doing is distracting you from your meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. that's why I am very interesting and talking that way. You have to concentrate today if you experience your perfect relationship with your food you will learn how to live healthy. Just for a change of variety and understanding and the depth your own patience and your power to relate to something which is not emotional and which is just a blessing, nurturing. Kudrat, you are going to eat everyday like this you will be skinny God you can't believe it, you don't have to diet at all. If you eat one good meal during the day and eat it like this and take about an hour doesn't matter what you eat, stones will make you healthiest. Strength of the rejuvenation and the strength of the youngness in the body lies in the saliva of your mouth. If you do not mix saliva in the morsel of your food you are eating poison.

You need dieting after this exercise you know. I experiment with one girl she used to eat worth hundred dollar of food and then go in bathroom and threw it all up and her sister was just opposite to that, she won't eat a thing. So I remember one day I satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. with them.

And I say, "Okay let's go." And we ate, we ate the whole food in two hours. She couldn't drop, she went and did the whole thing no, didn't come up. Then one who was refusing always to eat equally finish the entire food. Keep eating and keep eating, keep relating, keep meditating, keep talking to your food. Your entire mental energy should be in the food nowhere else. Just imagine you are sitting in heavens and God is serving you with food and you are nurturing yourself very gracefully and righteously.

When we used to play the swords called Gatka, there was one guy we couldn't fight with him. So I had a nature I wanted to investigate what this anybody whenever you go against him it doesn't look like that we can do anything. He makes us numb all of us and I found him very perfect in this KriyaKriya Literal meaning is "completed action."

He will do nothing, he will sit before us with a sword and with this shield and he will just keep looking. Anybody who look at will just be there, therefore nothing to it.

So we said, "Wait a minute don't fight against the sword, fight against the sight." So when he look we put the shield in front. Your power is in your mind, your body is just a vehicle. You are not eating a food, you are eating your health, your vitality, your energy, your prosperity, your strength, your Fateh, power to conquer. Whatever is,

"Anaaj bhoj, 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. bhoj, parameshwar bhoj bhojam."

When you eat food it is GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's bhoj you are eating the light from the darkness and it is God's own-self. So with meditative mind, with total hypnotic-self avoiding all the issues keep on eating, keep on the majority part of it which is very healthy is your own tasting of your own food which you have prepared to take it in the throat and below there off. If one-fourth you do not mix your saliva your stomach can't take it. Stomach has a acid if you put your finger into the stomach hydrochloric acid will eat it up, bone will come out. When there is a lot of saliva in the morsel of your food it becomes a beautiful, healthy compound. Don't totally finish it, because I have to show you a difference so there is ten more minutes keep on eating exactly the way you are eating but spare some part to eat it little later.

You know that day we had that Havan and there was a man from Pakistan and he was from Saudi Arabia. He asked me.

He said, "This whole thing which is happening here and it's the way of prayer of the Hindus?"

I said, "No, it's the way of the prayer of the most Ancient man."

He said, "How?"

I said, "You said Adam, Hawa and Adam, Adam means the Adam you call it Adam that's known in the scriptures as Adam. My hawa, my hawa means the air, the pranaPraana , Prana The universal life force that gives motion. It is the breath in air. It is the subtle breath of the purusha as it vibrates with a psychophysical energy or presence. Praana regulates the modes and moods of the mind. , Pavan."

So I said, "Do you understand that?"

He said, "Well I am a Muslim I understand it fully well Adam and Eve."

I said, "That's what I am saying the original name is Adam, Baba Adam, Mai Hawa."

He say, "Oh yeah I know, I have read it."

"But how it became Adam and Eve?"

I said, "English. How Jesus, Jesu become Jesus and how Mary became, Fatima became Mary I mean these guys can do anything they want, we have no control on these Westerns, but what is in the original name that's true."

He said, "But what this PunditPundit A Hindu who is learned in scripture. did?"

I said, "Nothing he took from body, our bodies and did the ceremony and killed the entire, no bacteria but the virus." So what they do is they burn the fire and they put the samagri they put lot of herbs which give very beautiful smell, fragrance is beautiful, but nobody knows the secret. That fire is made with camphor, they put stacks of camphor in it and then they give you camphor and at a certain time when the camphor has burned with that beautiful smell all around they keep on asking you to put camphor to it and just by pure smell of the camphor your body is healed of the virus. Camphor is so strong, you know you put under your trailers, and your cloths and nothing, nothing touches it. The very smell of the camphor can heal you.

It is very funny one day somebody called me, "I have a virus in my chest."

I say, "What it's doing?"

"Nobody knows."

I say, "Well, go to the doctor."

"I have tested everything."

I say, "Well, go call somewhere and get the organic camphor" there is one is chemical camphor and one is organic, so he got the organic camphor.

And I say, "Everyday just smell it." Once upon a time the person used to have a pain in the chest, no more. I never even diagnose what the camphor is for that person simply I said, "Get it organic." I didn't ask even what the virus? If the virus is then try this is the oldest ancient formula. But funny part is you smell camphor and any homeopathic medicine you take (?). And that's technically, scientifically tell you how the body energy changes. And that day whatever the punditPundit A Hindu who is learned in scripture. said and all the 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. he spoke and prayers he said and things he did had absolutely one practical meaning that we have to all sit around, because we have to put that samagri and that camphor into it right? So (?) distance, and that fire was going around all the sides and everybody was smelling it. I asked the Muslim gentleman who never believes in those kind of thing.

I say, "How you feel?"

He say, "I feel very bright and light really can we do it in Saudi Arabia?"

I say, "They will cut your head." For them it's a very wrong practice. What we have done things we have forgotten the right part of it, right rhythm of it, the right righteousness of it, we have made them as rituals. Now you have three more minutes slowly don't hurry keep the rhythm. Some of your arc line is changing, you are mentally feeling very bore you are not one with your food. Your concentration is poor and your mind is not here somebody is on the East coast, somebody on the North coast, somebody is in the different country that I can't even name. So don't misunderstand your arc line can tell what the hell you are going through. So please rekindle your light and life and concentrate with the most beautiful thing before you and that is your food.

You have two more minutes and then we will stop and then we will do something and thereafter we will finish our meal. You may have lot of mental problems and psychological and biological, sociological, spiritual problems you are what you eat. If you eat in a meditative way with a perfect friendly and best relationship it can do so much for you I will not use the word cure you or heal you, but way, way more than that.

There is a one story the Adam and Eve ate the snake, because it was very boring and they were living a life which was totally impotent and moment they ate that forbidden fruit they become potent the world came through. So tell me should we not be grateful to the snake? And don't you know the KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. is represented by the snake Sarpanaga. Naga means Na no ga where nothing can go it can go. All right now please keep your hands with that food as that is. The hands you used to eat with take that hand and hold in the other hand in the center of the palm and hold it and feel it, it will be just like this. If I ate with my right hand this is my left hand I will take that food hand which has all the food and whatever and I will touch it in the palm of my this hand and hold it just like I am making a fist of it and I will meditate. This is a healing by own food. Your hand has touched the essence of the food. That essence whether oil or water or touch of food don't clean it just put it right in the middle of the palm of the other hand and make it, hold it and concentrate.

Now go deeper and inside and digest your food, turn into a nectar by mental psycho therapy. Your mental power you can transfer anything to what you can make look a snake like a rope and rope like a snake. There is a saying in the scripture if you cannot bless your food and cannot befriend it you have no relationship with your own life. You have two minutes to feel light, your food must digest by the will of your mind. All right now please open your eyes and now please eat the food as you please old animal way, gobble it, no, no, no you have to do that now. You have to eat normally as you used to it, become animal gobble it go, go, go, go, go fast unchewed, nothing. Grab it, put it in, just see, see, see the difference good, hurry up why you are looking at me gobble it take the whole swallow, swallow, swallow. Normally you people swallow food you don't eat. Just see the difference you are not going to wait till tomorrow right now fill up your mouth and you know.

(Student's laughter)

Because you know the cows they eat and then they just pull it in and pull it in, then they sit down and they bring it out and then they chew it and then they put it back again you are worst than that. You do the first part you learn from the cow you don't do the second part. Go, go, fast, finish it so that your body will create a resistance through this animal eating. There is a animal eating and there is a human eating and there is a angelic eating. Angelic eating is Satvik Bhoj.

(YB's laughter)

O God there is a very old saying in the scripture man who swallows food never trust him, it is true. In olden civilization if a boy comes to the girl's house, they serve him food and if he cannot eat it as perfect when he is required they used to give him a piece of gold and send him. If they give him a piece of gold it means rejected, that's the price of coming. You have one minute left to finish your food, one minute.

(Student's laughter)

Okay now you have to get up put your stuff together and you each one has to go to the bathroom, you have to wash your hands and put water on your eyes and on the tip of the ears right here and little wet hand around your neck wash it again and come back one-by-one.

The lobe of the ears, back of the neck, wash your hand to the wrist and wet your thing called this elbow. Isn't she fantastic? She is the only one who eats right. Jasbeer, are you going to leave the Sangat? Have you ever eaten like that? You see 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. TeerathTeerath Sacred place.

Hey ki haal hai? (?)...

(The Sochai soch na hovai tape is played)

(YB over the tape): Siri Ved can I have a Siri Ved? Siri Ved Veding, he disappeared? Okay is there any question from the floor? Yes first you have to have a water, then you have to wash your hands and you wash your eyes this upper eyebrows, this where it is (?) and you put water here and you wet your lips. In the beginning if you have water and then you take the water and then you just sprinkle at your face. In the end you see me always I take a lemon, I wash my hands that keep the hands very young and then you smell it three times that digest the food and you don't bloat, that's the way you do. The idea of eating is living, you cannot gobble food, it upsets the stomach and stomach, because the secretion of the stomach is ordered by the pituitary and on the command of the pineal. So when you fill your stomach like blowed it up immediately and give it a shock then it gives your body shock for three hours continuously. After food either you are weak or you are absolutely hyper you are never normal and food must leave your stomach in two and half hour. Normally Athni 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. which we do in Yoga.

(The tape stops)

When we eat food and we sit down and exactly after two and half hour we have a processes to put all the food out, because what is gone is gone, what is left is to be out there is no need to give it to the system and that is the way to just energize your body excessively when you are recuperated and you want to be strong again. Your life will be long and your power will be great if you taste every morsel of the food you eat before you put it in stomach and it must taste, it must have salt and everything I am not discussing that, but after you chew it must taste sweet to your tongue and then you put it in. And that day I experimented before I was teaching you I took a that chili four chili 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. Bhajan makes very good food that's true, it's unbelievable those things he makes and the chili was on top of it and unfortunate it was not the jalapenos, it was the other one and it totally numb my tongue and bitter was so powerful it's unbearable but I stood with it.

I say, "Doesn't matter" and I chewed it and in the end it was sweet. You have to that way you will never be fat you will never be. I tell you myself it's not something I am denying to you that flying all the time as my life was and eating in the aeroplane as it was and running around and gobbling food still I have a good physical body. Because I can precisely separate, in spite of that there is hardly any disease, which I don't have. All terminal disease except Cancer I have them all and I pretty survived good.

Disease is a disease but your body and you must be in a position to fight it and keep going. Because when you cross North Pole all the time and radiation is so powerful and Espanola they say, now in water this radiation is more than it's required. I think we are putting all that system now to purify the water. We anyway we drink Canadian glaciers, it was not bad. But you know my entire problem started when I started drinking (?). Yeah I had no problem before that. Two accidents happened one after the other in two weeks and I didn't have a time to get to properly adjust still I just made it. And then (?) was very tasty I never knew the (?) is the worst salty water I ever drank. LA water is though nothing but it's much better than (?) and it was made here it doesn't come from France.

A distilled water where they put all stuff it's terrible misleading statement. BhaiBhai Brother. 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. Das says water at some place makes a sick man healthy and water at some place make a healthy man sick. This uranium that's what they use the atom bomb and all that uranium. It can give you diabetes, it can give you edema, it can give you bloating, it can totally freak out your liver. SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. was reading me the list of the diseases it does they are all very healthy diseases, it's very slow killer. It's very funny you go to Los Angeles you have the worst air and water in certain area is uranium and plutonium and God knows where all the stuff is coming from. So I will suggest get your water tested and get that filter put it's not very I mean to say if you put a filter on the water hose or whatever water is, it's not very costly and you can put a system to your water and your water will be much. Water in this area is very powerful, except it has little excessive and it's natural here. So we are testing it out we will be reporting your time on.

Eggplant is very good vegetable there is nothing like it and black pepper and eggplant and that pakodas we made of that. It takes away allergy forever, it's fantastic. Plum, (?) is tasty, it is better than apple and it's better than peach. Have you seen that it is apple pears. How many of you like figs? Figs can make a human out of the pig.

(Student's laughter)

It's a most powerful brain tonic do you know that? Do you know that? Your loss of energy, silliness and dramatic down and up and moodiness. You know in men's course I taught you that take a fig and inject it with a heavy-duty saffron and keep it in a freezer and after every meal take few of them. And these days we are very lucky America is becoming a mango country. I love it, we bring about ten boxes or fifteen boxes from the flee market and second day.

Siri SimranSimran A deep meditative process in which the naam of the Infinite is remembered and dwelled in without conscious effort. junior is not here she has a computerized book on everything what they call it?

Take apricot, dry apricot and garlic and steam them and then blend the whole thing and take onions and mix it, cut onion small not don't crush them but reasonable and take the garbanzo flour and put according to your taste what you want and make the pakodas. Normally when our guest come in the ranchThe Ranch Yogi Bhajan's home just across the highway from the Aashram, and site of the Yogi Bhajan Memorial Birthday Celebration. we give them the peach pakodas and banana pakodas and it's amazing how tasty they are, kiwi pakodas, orange pakodas and they have never tasted it they don't know what they are eating, "Oh wow" that's all they say, it's very healthy.

Garbanzo flour you should eat as much as you can and mustard oil it will take away the mucus from your digestive system. It's best for liver, sometime just take onion, ginger and garlic and make garbanzo flour and make it like pancakes. And if you are very sweet tooth, please put maple syrup. Honey and garbanzo flour don't go together. This one of the best thing in case this month next month is what?

Take skim milk and take a spoon of cardamom in it and then put 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. tea spices two or three and boil it on a fire slowly and then take 5 grams of quinine and drink with it.

TeerathTeerath Sacred place. is it technically right everything at your purely. These are grandma's recipes from time of Infinity and everybody has to enjoy them at their own personal risk, if there is any. 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. tea spices as they are plus one spoon of cardamom and put the milk and boil it on a slow fire for quite a time till the whole house will be just a cardamom flavor, it shows up and then please take 5 grams of quinine when you are you know right? And one last request I will like to make to you please. When you go on highway 106 and you see the lightest green don't trust it. At the rate the accident happen they were much they are much worst than before these lights. Because those people who are coming on that they can't understand what red means. I think in Mexico something is changing red light looks green to people. So when we go from this side we see the arrow in green light look both side very effectively before even you dare to go that day an accident was going to happen to my car. I think our limousine would have just collapsed. This truck driver was singing and dancing and blasting and he came through like doesn't mean a thing. And if you see the glasses shattered all on there that will show you it is one causality a day. And I don't think there is any reason for you to trust those lights.

I know you are right, light is green perfect but after accident what is right? I said that those few word in Espanola it doesn't matter you are right, it also doesn't matter you are bright, but if the opposite has applied to kill you it is done deal. These guys drive I think when people come to Espanola something happens to them about 5 miles from here.

(Student's laughter)

They have no idea. It's amazing this (?) area nobody obeys anything about the road driving absolutely no rule. I saw that day three trucks were going in between the both sides of the road, what it means? You can interpret as you want it. So it will be very kind of you, if you keep the community intact, drive carefully.
