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. Kaur from Houston living model of the southern hospitality (?).

(Student's laughter)

You know good is good everywhere, you can't have good here and that there. Good doesn't cost much. She can sing any song, she can sing Christian song, she can Sikh song, she can sing Buddhist song, but whatever she can sing she sings from the heart and she sings from that throat charka, simple and good. We all can learn that.

Okay now another, come on. Sit down, sit down singing both of (?).

YB: Wow, okay let us do the job.

Now what we are going to do is very strange situation we'll, we have balanced the energy, now we'll pull it. And when you pull the energy it penetrates through the centers and it returns to the base, so it creates a automatic cycle and (?). Sometime it hurts, sometime it doesn't. If it hurts your good luck, if it doesn't nice. But it does what it does, what to do. If you have eaten a garbage there are junk in the previous three months.

(Student's laughter)

Look I am not accusing anybody, I am just telling.

(Student's laughter)

I don't mean, I don't see the unseen, I am just saying that if you have, if you had your bit you know, then you will know why you did it. And you will, you will know it right now, not later. Why should we do?

O by the way there is a situation going on weight reducing situation, everybody is going crazy, how to reduce it.

SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. SimranSimran A deep meditative process in which the naam of the Infinite is remembered and dwelled in without conscious effort. made the dish today and we have the recipe. Weight reducing, you don't understand it. You don't understand it as a science, you are crazy American, you overeat you go crazy, then you reduce them. To reduce the weight you go crazy then you eat.

(Student's laughter)

Then you eat you go fat and you reduce the weight. You are kind of up and down, back and forth, nobody knows what you are doing. Weight reducing is not a right thing to do, if it is not done systematically. But its good to reduce weight and you want to be skinny there is a reason to do that, but that does not mean that you should be dead in energy. Actually weight reducing by fasting when you do you should not be working. You should be totally out of work, relax and then reduce the weight. Now you can't afford that, I know that. So what we did found out a formula and it is tofu little bit of red chilies and the heart of the lattice and little steam onion, little garlic, whatever steamed though. And little bit milk she made something to just put on it. You will not take salt because you'll substitute the salt with the heavy water, which comes through the heart of the lattice and it has lot of others. It is little bitter. The bitterness is what the situation in that is. It won't put you to a nervous breakdown that you can't work. You can work this diet, you will reduce in size in this diet, you will not be constipated and you'll feel good. But we have to live on it. It won't give you set back, so she has these...

The problem is she is not going to even make it for me tomorrow I don't think so, that's how she is. But you can get the recipe. While she is looking at it as though I am telling something unusual. That's a unusual way, that is SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. SimranSimran A deep meditative process in which the naam of the Infinite is remembered and dwelled in without conscious effort. way. She makes one dish one time, forgets about it.

Well, if she does it tomorrow I'll tell you okay. Well, it was nice today. So she will give you the recipe if you want the recipe you can and you can do it. It's cheap, it is very healthy, it is highly cleansing. Grape fruit juice you can have with it, instead of water. And if you are a woman you should have one banana a day with it, in case calcium has to be balanced. In case, because some of you are very bad in calcium. Women needs lot of calcium, so one banana a day it is enough to give you potassium and calcium and magnesium. But it should not be over ripe or it should be under ripe, it should be a fairly good banana.

Lattice, the heart of lattice, which you normally throw away, that's all lattice has in it. Rest is just those leaves and green little chlorophyll and water and all that, but the heart of lattice is very useful. If you use the heart of the lattice and tofu should be put in what they call in?

Student: Oven.

YB: Oven and it should be dried and fresh crushed red chili on it. If you need little bit black chili that's fine, but if put it on and put it into the oven and let it be done there. Then later on the plate put the heart of the lattice, cut it on whole and now what you do? Yeah, come on, come on?

(Student's laughter)

YB: Now she will tell because she is in ego, otherwise she won't tell you.

(Student's laughter)

You know when you deal with a Taurus you have to deal.

Student: Actually the Siri Singh SahibSiri Singh Sahib Honorary title given to Yogi Bhajan to indicate his role as spiritual leader of Sikh Dharma in the West. His complete title within Sikh Dharma is Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji. (?) when I gave him the idea for.

YB: I gave the idea, but she made it. Let us start.

Student: You slice the tofu about this thin and this thick and you sprinkle red chilies on in a dry baking pan. You put it in the oven food, depending on the (?) the tofu fifteen minutes, to thirty minutes. So it starts getting little brown on the top so it's dry. When you take a lattice you just chop it up, put it over that and with the dressing is made on cottage cheese in a blender. Cottage cheese, tomato, not a lot of tomato, may be one tomato, it shouldn't look red (?) just think (?). Cottage tomato water crack, a lot of water (?). Water (?) of the any calorie as well as tasty. Some dicon radish, white dicon radish, both are very tasty. Black pepper and some (?) and a little tinny bit of lemon juice, but not enough to be over taste (?) and just blended it over the blender and pour it over.

YB: I guess you must have been hungry.

(Student's laughter)

You know the only thing, the saving factor, the saving factor which we come on here is what we are doing at this time I don't know I am going to tell the kitchen to put turmeric in that, both turmeric in that onions and all that we make.

Student: (---)

YB: Yeah the only saving factor which we have mentally the summer solstice time is very beautiful energy time, but food wise it in spite of all the junk we eat and sneak out and do something, but still there is a mono diet and this mono diet which we eat here is, it's a qualified diet, it is not I made it up because of this, because of that. It's a diet, which is time ancient. Human used to use when they used to go for. There are lot of suggestion to improve it or make it better, but what is a better than formula that a diet it has a combination and that's it. Certain things we are unable to produce in America, therefore, those cannot be included in the diet, but perhaps one day we can produce them and we will have a kind of a diet which is, which shall go with it, but for the time being it is very good, its light, it is mono, it is mental and it is cleansing. And if you eat it right its good. Early in the morning you are given bananas and oranges it that true?

Student: (---)

YB: Or you are given the soup?

Student: No.

YB: Now normally now here goes the problem. We give you kind of potato food right. But actually we should have nothing but potato skin. I know you like potatoes but you don't understand. It should be actually going potato skin and potato skin soup cost about a dollar per person per day, if it is made according to the ancient recipe. It is ridiculous you know how they do it? You want to understand that? Sometime try it, see how costly it is. Take the potatoes and bake them in the oven or in the, they do it in India in the ash, hot ash. Hot ash you just...

Student: Hot coal.

YB: Hot coal I was... there is a kind of a hot coal ash or something. They do that and then they cut it out and then that skin that thick skin like that is taken out and potato separates. There is a line in between, so they take that other thing straight and take that skin in. And that skin is taken out and that skin is boiled with zucchini and they do it on very low fire. Slowly and slowly and after every two hours they come and put little black pepper, little red chili and little this, little that and then go away. They come again and put water and then little chili, little this, whole night it is done. Then it is not served next morning, next morning they soak in it onion and garlic and ginger and blah-blah-blah and leave it there. Then next night again they do the whole process and then next morning they serve it. I figured it out for about thirty people to prepare this soup for one hundred people. For twenty-four hours in a row and it will cost about one dollar if you buy bulk wholesale. But what we are doing is we try to get out of it, because we are not very rich organization yet.

(Student's laughter)

We'll be very rich and in future I am not crazy about it, but we can't do those kind of lavish things yet, that will first earn then, then we'll do it. So, you had that soup and you had that in the evening you get all that vegetables and celery mixed in the whole stuff and you do not know even where they are gone, but they are there somewhere. So there (?) there and then there is a hot sauce you eat with it, which you look at it sometime with a nose and sometime you look it is...

(Student's laughter)

Sampooran from tomorrow put a extra pound of turmeric into that sauce you make. Just straight one act one pound extra. Because this time in summer we are going to give you what you call is turmeric bath and we'll prepare the vegetables in a way because you may not get the swine flu but your head will become swine anyway and to control the ruptures of the capillaries which shall be a disease of 1977 and onwards, 77, 79, 78, 80 these three years the energies of the Mars is going to create lot of circulatory and blood problem with lot of people. So that may end up causing the ruptures and causing your veins out and lot of those sickness are going to engulf us. So we'll like to tune our bodies to turmeric. So to tune bodies to turmeric is to safeguard against these kind of nuisances. Internal organs function can be saved and the blood can be purified if the person takes a tablespoon of turmeric each day in different varieties of food. That is a diet and dietary requirement for a living human being if he doesn't want to look clumsy, crazy and neurotic. Because after all if the blood will not circulate your glandular system there is no hope, I mean I don't care how rich you are and I don't care how poor you are. And in spite of our sayings that the three roots, ginger, onion and garlic you guys are so crazy you some of you stop taking them on one excuse or the other. That's how the men are weak and ladies are not still. Those three things, ginger, garlic, onion are God given things, which are worshiped. Beyond that many of you do not know how you use black pepper. Black pepper and red pepper cannot be used direct, but indirect it is a necessity for the body. It is very purifying, it gives all the body needs and there are lot of ways you can do it. Suppose you use cheese before you what they call it put it in the oven to melt the cheese you can put these red chili and black pepper on that cheese and shove it in and what will happen is that when the cheese will become little red these things will just get into it and that is where you, if this is the way you have to get into it. But if you don't do that raw onion a day keeps the cancer away. And if you don't do that then you will have these modern sickness and modern sickness are very costly, you can't afford it. And all these modern sicknesses are of animal sicknesses.

I don't think we are endangered as a vegetarian, but problem is we have eaten enough meat at certain time and we have fed our animal nature, our animal instinct, our animal being so much that it is powerful. And therefore there has to be done something Satvic food, the food of the humans the food of God it's a very beautiful thing, but it is only beautiful you know they have suspended these swine flu shots because they have found people get paralyzed and all that. There was a huge article in the paper. They do not know what they are doing. But I think they had a good intentions, but road to hell is paved with good intentions.

(Student's laughter)

(?) good intentions are part of lot of people, but nobody knows what somebody is doing. But one thing you have to understand, some of us ladies on account of children and those kind of excuses are not doing exercise. Now must not forget these exercises were the basis on which you get pulled out of that garbage. Now if you are going to lose doing those exercises how long your mind will be pure enough and then you will fall apart. Now don't blame your husband and don't blame your teachers and don't blame your organization, but because you don't do the exercise, you don't do and specially sometime teacher's wife they are biggest thieves in the world. They are the one who is culprit they don't want to do it.

Besides you have good health and you will have a good mind and you will have a good repore and you will have good tolerance and you are the better of. The sneakish business is that Sardarini Sahiba doesn't get up in the morning when he sneezes and these banana's husband, the Singh sahibs and all that jazz they even don't portray them right. They say, oh you know I have talked to Siri Singh SahibSiri Singh Sahib Honorary title given to Yogi Bhajan to indicate his role as spiritual leader of Sikh Dharma in the West. His complete title within Sikh Dharma is Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji. and he said okay. Siri Singh SahibSiri Singh Sahib Honorary title given to Yogi Bhajan to indicate his role as spiritual leader of Sikh Dharma in the West. His complete title within Sikh Dharma is Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji. said okay to every damn thing, why should I bother. You know I am not going to lose anything, you are nuts, you are nuts.

(Student's laughter)

Well if somebody wants to live as a nut why the hell I have to just pick and spank him for what?

You tell me sir, I am going to jump from the roof.

I said, "Go ahead God bless you save telephone bill, we have, thank you." You know go ahead. These guys want to act crazy, you want to just act indifferent it's your problem. You know you have been taught more than anytime on this planet individuals were taught in scriptures so far. We'll keep on teaching you, but I don't know how much time God has extended to me, but I don't understand. There is not a single swamiSwami Master. , 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. , sage, age, mage, teg, page, rage, whatever you want to call it who even knows anything what you all know. And damn it you have all that written. You have all that on tapes. We are pulling out with you a knowledge which humanity accumulated in twenty-seven thousand years. You guys are nuts, you don't know the value it, you don't understand. You have been given a combination for everything and you know that. You go and listen to any man I can challenge he is going to tell you all come back home and sit pick up a portion you will find everything was set in few words. But if you don't want to use it you want to abuse it, it should be taken as your problem. You have been accurately given the science of combination of the pituitary and pineal. You have been accurately told the combination of the three nervous system. You have been accurately told the fiber and the change of the cells and the molecule. You have been also told micro and macro 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 inter exchange of it. You have been also told human thought and imagination and intuition the play of it. You have been told like every thing is just like laid down in science. Nobody cheated you. Nobody refrained to tell you. And nobody was just hiding anything from you. If you don't value, you don't value it. There is nothing anywhere else. I don't want to put down anybody and any situation, but you must understand, knowledge is the knowledge. Learning is a learning and when you practice learning you become learned. And the value of a human being is plus learned. First you have to be human being, plus you have to be learned. Because a learned can express humanity in the human form and in human creed, that's the difference. And 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. Guru Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. Gobind SinghGuru Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. gave us this BanaBana , Baana One's outward projection, often refers to a specified clothing that projects a consciousness. , this outfit.

Last night I was talking to Niranjan she gave the word, I said, "Well, panj pyras BanaBana , Baana One's outward projection, often refers to a specified clothing that projects a consciousness. should be there."

He said, "Those outfits."

"Yes I that was very good word."

You have been to this outfit, so that you can fit out in all spiritual situation. It's highly technical. It has no, it is...Some freak out, the religion seeker. It is the religion because in this damn country without amendment one we can't survive. There are bunch of crazies lunatic running around here. They think they know everything and nobody else know. No, to survive for the time of Aquarius we have to take that protection and we have to utilize ourself to form ourself to certain discipline so that when the insanity will over take this part of the country we'll be in a position to help. That's all it tend amounts to. We are not in out to convert anybody and teach anybody, preach anybody anything. All we want is there is everything is set, don't worry about it. It's all going to be exactly the way it is going to be...

Side B

If you want to be upset you have to be upset for everything. If you don't want to be upset then you have to have a set up. There is no, there is no choice. Law of the opposite, law of polarity describes everything in human life and you have to be what you have to be. Don't play games, they won't work for you, because playing games with time and space you become a part of time and space and the trip of a human is to be above time and space.

You understand what I mean?

Human trip is to see above time and space. And playing of time and space all the time will not let you go up, that is up to you. The (?) is not my trip. My job is, I am also myself tired of this telling you again and again the things, so all I want to finish my force and empty my bag and deliver what I have to deliver and I want to go. This I have seen this Earth is round and it is as Equator and North Pole and South Pole and people and everybody drinks.

(Student's laughter)

No, they are crazy, I can't believe these humans. Thank God I have got nothing to do with you.

(Student's laughter)

I mean to say look at this jazz, everybody is a animal, they all eat meat urea, so they can't rest. They can't be stable. Urea has one quality in it, it won't let you rest. I don't care how many protein you get. You may get the whole world in the protein, but you will be just as shaky and as just like that. I mean to say that's one thing and then everybody drinks. Nobody wants to be self, fine self. Everybody, nobody wants to listen to God's tale or personal tale, everybody has a cocktail.

(Student's laughter)

Yours cocks and your tails, God bless you that's all 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 when there will be no cocks, no tails what you want to do, you don't know what God is. I mean to say you have a very great problem, I mean to say all of us, all of us. You go around on every damn road there is a billboard and it say Kentucky shark, and this park and this Saturday and Tuesday, and Tuesday Sunday teacher Sunday, some God knows. There is hardly any name, having name Napoleon and Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria.

Sex is the axe of your life. Until somebody axe your sex, you are not going to come out of it. You understand what I am talking to you? I am talking in a language which if you want to understand you can, if you don't, you should not.

(Student's laughter)

But dummies how long you are going to suffer, I don't, sometime I just want to ask you one very personal question, how much time more? There is nothing left. There is no time. We have exploited ourself. We have abused ourself. We have abused ourself. We have tried every trick of the trade.

You know some girl called me she said, "I want to marry a person and he tells me to get out of the 3HO."

I say, "God bless him and God bless you and just go in and pick up and pack up and leave."

And she asked the second question, "Yogiji do you know where I am going?"

I say, "Exactly, from where you came. I know from where you came and I want you to go back where you came from. It's fantastic trip. I know the other side of the mountain what is going on. I know." You go to a Mecca or you go to Las Vegas, that's a American Mecca.

(Student's laughter)

And there is those, those pistons you know, put a money and (?) it is human masturbation, mental masturbation, people do it there. Nothing, waste time, everybody knows they are going to lose money. Everybody knows it is a neurotic trip. But why don't you stand before a mirror and take off that shirt and just jump around little bit and why to pay fifteen dollars for that damn thing?

(Student's laughter)

I mean... can't you make Las Vegas every night in your own home. Put few mirrors around and jump around with that damn thing and that's all this Las Vegas is about.

(Student's laughter)

I mean there is a crazy thing. And just take a little O that money, money elephant what you call that little thing?

Student: (---)

YB: That slaught machine we say technical way to rape you, money wise, I mean to say you can have little in home and just put in there and feel that sound tingtingting and later on have a slaught underneath and pull it out and you can drrrrrrr it is all your money man.

(Student's laughter)

There is no damn thing from anybody, you are being ripped off eighty percent rip off I have never seen other than Las Vegas. And every American goes there and they talk about it. O I have been in Las Vegas. O what you get ripped off that's all. And then the bigger the money as the bait is bigger than that big handle is.

You know I don't want to use those words, but they are right in my mouth, you understand what I mean?

(Student's laughter)

You play with the damn, you know its starts with A and you can understand what I am saying.

(Student's laughter)

See how insane we are. We have been mechanized to be ripped off, we have been ripped in our family life. We have been ripped off with money. We have been ripped off in government. There is no compassion, there I no law, there is no interpretation. I mean to say we are just looking as, we have no value.

What we have? Nothing. We never got love of our parents. We never got love of a... And now we are being looked at as we are the craziest people.

What we are trying? We are trying to built a cohesive, constructive, cozy family. We are trying to become human again. Now they look at us as we are the craziest creatures that are imported from somewhere and these damn boozed up, you know totally filled to their nose, they think, they think that they know everything. I mean to say it's a craziest thing. I went on one night flight, you can't believe it. It smells like a whiskey, the entire plane was filled. I mean you have smoking and non-smoking, but I never knew that we have to claim tomorrow booze and non-booze apartments.

(Student's laughter)

And everybody were drunk to their death and they were yelling and screaming as they had no, they don't know where they are.

(Student's laughter)

And hello and lalalu and tadadu and whatever they were doing everybody were tolerating it, and people trying to close their ears and eyes and...

And I was told my SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. SimranSimran A deep meditative process in which the naam of the Infinite is remembered and dwelled in without conscious effort. this that is how the night flight, I never had the experience of night flight is like that. I thought night flight will be comfortable and cool and you know...Everybody would like to sleep, but here there is a bunch of boozers sitting and bombarding everybody with lot of weird words and they said certain things, if you say before a judge he is going to put you contempt of court rest of your life. But everybody went along with it, they couldn't help it, that's the way it was, that's the way it was.

So we are going to pull ourself from that kind of life. And we are very honest and open about it, we are not making any second-degree change or third-degree or we are dishonest about it or we are trying to convert people. It's not perversion, it's a simple, honest statement fact. We are not going to live this rotten way of life. It's a simple declaration I so and so citizen of United States of America and Canada and western hemisphere do hereby declare I am not going to live this rotten type of hypocrite life. Don't you understand this declaration? We made it ten years ago. We young people started in 1961 on 5th of January when the axle changed, when the south axle started having the energy we made this declaration. It took many sacrifices, it took us through everything, but we simply made a declaration. Twenty million young Americans came out of their homes to sacrifice and raise this slogan. Five, fifteen million out of them has been eaten up by time and this machine. And five million are surviving to just sow the seed so that the future can be secure. This is the name of the game in nutshell.

We over dozed, we left our homes, wall-to-wall carpet homes, we left our jobs, we grew our hair. I never came that you never knew what is the damn 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 is when you had long hairs. I was not on the scene at all, I was doing my job. You were doing yours. So no....When somebody says you are following me.

I say, "It's a damn lie nobody is following me I am following people. All we are trying to do is to give a finishing touch so that the dream may come true."

Look how we were in the Woodstock, remember? Now Woodstock will never happen again, but this little Woodstock is happening here. We are surviving in memory of those. We are coming along with the time, we are not out of tune, remember that. Those who tell you, you are out of tune, actually they are out of tune. If they are in tune, why they have to booze every night tell me?

If a person is sane competent, has a perfect nervous system, and can stand to everything why he has to have this, (?) or bourbon on the rock, what for? What is his idea? If a person can digest and break protein and ends on from any food he doesn't need meat at all. A man we are blind, we do not see under the skin. And that is the way it is still there is a black, brown, white, yellow Caucasian race, Asian race, oriental, Chicano.

(Student's laughter)

It is the craziest world when you deal with it. Now if you live in America every body is divided so much in ethnic, what they call them ethnic groups?

And these are Germans, these are Italians, these are Caucasians, these are mamacian, tatacian, God knows...

(Student's laughter)

Who anybody is? This is a black, this is a brown black, this is a black, black. I never knew all that. Like Christianity there is seventh day Adventist doesn't like the Catholic, Catholic doesn't like protestants and Jimmy carter is what Baptist. So it's a Baptist. Nobody calls himself Christian. Have you realized that? There is no damn thing as Christian. This is this, seventh day, fifth day Adventist, and two days this, one day this, Saturday this.

(Student's laughter)

What is this joke we have made of a whole thing. It's our nature. It's one of our nature to divert everything to nothing. It's one of our nature to destroy everything which needs us. We could have not put Jesus on the cross. So he, one man couldn't do a lot. But speak the truth and get on the cross. Because majority is always of insanity.

Mob, mob robs the divinity. It is just like that mob.

You know one mother came to me and she said, "My son cannot put some cloth on his head, can't, can't, he can't do it. You told him to do it.

(Student's laughter)

She was so much raised in anger like a totally insane person.

And I said, "She must have taken three bourbons plus vodka, nothing less than can make out, that shaky she was just."

(Student's laughter)

I said, "Look I didn't tell that damn guy to do the damn thing, okay? Get off my back as fast as you can."

"No, no, I am going to tell you."

I say, "What you are going to tell me?"

(Student's laughter)

'You won't tell me a thing."

(Student's laughter)

"He is going to do it what he is going to do it, understand?"

(Student's laughter)

He didn't have a good repore.

(Student's laughter)

I didn't like it. I didn't like it.

I said, "All right it is a hell of a job, so let us see something later."

Next morning I got the number from his daughter-in-law, her daughter-in-law and called her and she said, "O sweet Yogiji how you feel? I don't know what I said last night, it was just I was just a kind of heavy on me and I let it out and it is good you came to the city, I couldn't even welcome. I could have called you on the dinner."

And say, "Yes, yes, yes."

O my God 9 O'clock she was just a mess. At 9 O'clock in the morning she is just as beautiful as a angel.

Don't worry about it, this is the way it is. We spend money to become insane.

(Student's laughter)

If all these billboards which is in United States of America carry one message, we are Americans, in God we trust. Only that can save our country instead of putting the black velvet and brown this, and yellow that, you understand what I am trying to tell you? As we are standing against this rut, so this rut doesn't like us. And that is where our problem is, basic and simple.

I tell you now a private conversation. A psychiatrist certified somebody that that person is not sane. And I was discussing with that guy and I told him, I say, "Are you sane?"

He said, "No."

(Student's laughter)

Well, a insane certifying somebody is insane. Where we are at? A donkey telling us that we are donkeys.

(Student's laughter)

A junky telling us mentally junkies. In this country there are more mental junkies than junkies themself, they are worried about junkies. What about these mental junkies? There are more mental junkies in United States of America than the whole world. They are crazy. They have no tolerance, they are just, just like a atom bomb. They come out, but you understand you got to make this country a country. You got to make your family a family. You got this bag as a human, so got to work on that. And that requires now painful work and task and we all have to work it out. We can pay forty dollars an hour, it's not possible. You don't have that kind of money.

Should we go crazy? No.

(Student's laughter)

Yeah, that's the problem. You know we have been damaged at the time of birth. When we were born they operated on us. If you are a girl (?) what the boys goof. So all that joke has already happened to us, we got to get out of it, therefore, swim hard to get out of this mud. We'll make it. Isn't the life that matters, what I said?

The lower energy the energy of the apana, will take place of the pranas and the energy of the pranas will visit the apanas, it will happen right now. It's not a miracle. But whatever it is, it is. So it will be for some it will be painful, for some it will be nice. Now God is the end of everything. Whether God is nice or God is ugly but God is neutral, God is a Creator of two polarities, good and bad. So up and down, length and breath, tight and loose, whatever you want to call it. Everything is God. So please sit down nicely in a atmosphere of a yogiYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended.
