YB: Everybody in life intend to predict things but this year has brought humanity the reassurance that the concept of spirit has won not only the Berlin wall has fallen, not only the President of USS Gorbachev has gone to meet the Pope, not only the Rajiv Gandhi Government fell apart but also the inhuman law of Punjab has been dismissed by the Indian parliament. That doesn't mean that the concept of life and the tragedy of humanity have lessened but there is a one simple concept in Sikh Sikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. DharmaSikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. Dharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. . There is a normal word which you must have heard in every walk of life and in your communication and it is called Trust, Barosa and in ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. also we ask Barosa daan give us the gift of trust.

Normally, in normal life there is a common saying, 'don't trust anybody, trust not a friend to turn him into be enemy,' trust has lot of misgivings in the human life but if you really want to look at the way of the people who believe in God, people who believe spirituality, people who believe the Infinity, the dignity of the mankind. Trust is the very essential step. Trust you can only you can trust. Normally we say if I trust you, you cannot betray me that's normal concept that's a bargain that is what we expect, that is where we are coward or weak. It's not a very courageous act, the human act, the courageous act is that you must trust because if we are not going to learn to trust the other human beings we are also not going to trust the one who made the human beings it's a matter of projection. In our psyche that do we trust our soul? Do we believe and trust that we have a soul and do we trust and believe that our soul is the part of the infinite soul that is God?

Today as the trend goes the mankind is very unhappy and there is a last thing in the world that is called trust. Nations do not trust nation, people do not trust people, individuals do not trust individual, circumstances do not trust yesterday, today and tomorrow. But after all what is life? What is the concept of life we are dealing with?

Nobody ever believed the events will come through as they have come and as fast as they have come. Therefore nobody also can predict tomorrow how the circumstances will change. It was a belief that we will meet nobody believed that we will meet it here. The human strength lies in human fulfillment and if a person think he is a rich and he is comfortable and his life is complete and perfect, actually speaking fact that life which is totally complete according to our estimate is not even one to ten percent of our whole capacity.

The most pain with a person in his life is that as the life gets to a maturity the realization come on or it is dawn on us that we have not lived life complete, we have not lived the fulfillment of life, we have not experienced the total sum of our living and we end up doing life as a comparative study. We have to go across the line of thinking which the religions have taught so for, it's very unfortunate that we have to sit today to have the comparative study of the religion and the comparative study of the religion. Man in his religion reality has only tried to satisfy himself in relationship to God. Man decided that his love of God is enough if he goes through certain rules and regulations and if he does certain things and he goes through certain days he is fine. Like if he go Sunday to Church or Sunday to a Gurudwara and show up at the LungarLangar , Lungar Free kitchen associated with Sikh worship service. time or we.

Man has not yet accepted that his religious duty is for his own personal expansion that's not true. I shall be sitting here and lying to you, if I say the religion has done its job, I will tell you the religion has been most misleading, most dogging and extremely corrupt diversion to just control the mankind for its motivations. Purpose of religion is the man should expand in his own selflessness to find his own selfishness in his own dignity and expand himself to that extend that nothing can make him weak. That reality which as our right that reality which is our concept that is reality which is our richness that we must develop our dignity and integrity and our concept of courage and our faith and our trust to that extend that nothing can shake it.

Invincible man is not the ideal man it is the beginning of the manhood. And that is what the purpose of the religion was, purpose of religion was not that everybody just can belong one Sunday or one Saturday or one night we may sit-down and do singing or do certain acts. Most of these acts can be done only for popularity sake or it can be done for social sake or it can be done for communication sake there is always one purpose or the other in performing a religious act and that all man has learned till the time Nanak.

Nanak came to tell mankind the purpose of reality of your is finding your reality and living your reality with courage and strength that was the purpose of Nanak. Nanak has not rejected any religion but Nanak has also not participated in any religion. Nanak path was that even you know the truth it is not enough so long you live the truth and if you live the truth you live must with the experience of your own dignity, with your own integrity.

Now we normally say in our common day of life we have to do thing, I have to do this thing for myself, this suites me. I am asking those who do lot of things for themself, are they not willing to do things for themself completely. Why we are doing things for ourself just partially? Why we can't do things for ourself wholesomely? What is stopping us that today we just want do things just that to serve time and space from which to receive ourself freedom is our fundamental work? We are afraid, every man is afraid when 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. saying,

"Anth Naa Siftee Kein-anth, Anth Naa Karney Dein Anth."

When he said the Beanthtaa, the timelessness, the Infinity of God and man and His creation. It was a very, very difficult for man to conceive because you have to understand the history of man is that this is my tribe and this is my town and this is my city, this is my state and this is my nationality and this is my world and this is the space and this the Galaxy and this is this and this is that.

But when Nanak says there is nothing which you can say is yours everything belongs to God, trust it. Trust it, that you don't belong to yourself, trust it. Now tell me is there anybody who wants to accept that though it's a fact, it's a scientific fact, it's a logical fact, it's a realistic fact, environments and circumstances has proven to man again and again things happen beyond anybody concept, things happen beyond anybody. Sometime we say it is miracle, somebody say it is a luck, somebody will say everything but there is a explanation for one thing that all what it is does not belong to what all it is now. It doesn't belong to what it is yesterday.

The performance of human life, the purpose of human life is happiness, the smiles, the songs then nation cannot be killed, cannot be destroyed which has its songs and its smiles. That is why nineteen eighty-four to nineteen eighty-eight we went everywhere through a very tremendous amount of tragedy and international impact of insult, nobody can deny it and nobody can forego it. But the entire nation smiled at it, it went through it.

We are closing this year eighty-nine and in couple hours there will be year eighty-ninety, nineteen ninety update today eighty-eight thousand nine hundred and forty-six men innocent have been butchered, killed and destroyed. The latest tally and it is not that it is not yet happening. Though the trend has stopped, situation has been asked to stop and it is desirable the situation will stop but it has not stopped yet. The innocent people those who have no concern with the circumstances situation has given their life and nobody can ask anybody why?

There is a purpose for it. Sometime to wake up something which is sleeping to awaken something which is dormant, the Unknown hand of God ask for the sacrifice. It's the sacrifice which builds the strength, it's the test of circumstances which bring us to certain reality. I understand many of you are sitting here with utmost pain that nineteen eighty-four you were in a position only that was the last trip you could go and bow your head to Golden Temple and when Gur Das Singh from Spain wrote that song, 'when we should walk again on the cold marble again' it was the most true sentiments of a Sikh, of a Sikh of the 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. . His sentiments were when we shall garland Thy durbar, Thy body again, when we should walk on that cold marble again, when that day will come, there was a longing, there was a separation, there was an environmental situation which did and just understand we understand it was Government of India internal matter let us put it this way but may I know where Government of India earned the right to debar every Sikh of the world that they cannot visit their Temple. What gave them the authority?

Today world is so small, religious freedom is so powerful and human rights are so understandable and if little thing happens everywhere there is a hue and cry. Do you believe that three million people living outside India were not allowed to visit Golden Temple for no purpose, for no excuse and no explanation was given? These tragedies in life are very invoking they are not provoking they are giving a man a thought. The thought is the man has not reached his own religious or realistic understanding. Man is still using the political power and the religious power combined for personal motives. The Government of the people, for the people, by the people which is the theory, it's only a theory.

I have seen in my life the religious men compromising for personal glory, I have seen religious men compromising for benefits, for concessions but also I have seen the religious men who took their head on the palm of their hand and they walked into it with the strength and courage so tomorrow can live. I am asking you onething very politely but very definitely from eighty-four to eighty-eight we have not only live with the tragedy of death but we have also lived a very, very treachery of life. History is not going to forgive us when facts are going to come out that there were many people among us who are responsible for all this tragic end not only they participated but they also are the leaders and they did it for purposes best known to them, what I am asking you today is that now we are coming into the openness of tomorrow, a religious openness and what is required today is to spread the word of Nanak to the four corners of the world.

You have now a motion to make, a achievement to accomplish your own fulfillment that your inner satisfaction should be strong enough and your courage should be strong enough that you should let world know that there is a, there is a place of our total living, there is a achievement which a man can do not ritualistically but in a total reality and in that total reality which shall prevail tomorrow.

Today you are few hundred, few thousand or few hundred thousand, today you are totally eighteen million in the planet Earth and you are one of the most powerful religion you are the eighth religion, you come among eight religion. But that's not your heritage by numbers, your heritage comes on the top of everything. You hold the heritage of the mankind experiment to the height and tranquility in which you can share people's pain. We are closing this year with this note that we should come out of our own shell and we should come out trusting ourself that we can heal people of spiritual, mental and physical pain. That is what ninety has for us and that is what nineties calling on us to do? This is not the time to just to relate to our individuality now it is the time to go ahead and encounter the tragedy which we have faced the last four years.

Now we have come out of the circumstances and this is the time that each one of us must take a view that today as I have eaten, I have nurtured myself. Today as I done my 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. I have exalted myself. Today I have earned money I have enriched myself, today I must spread the word of Nanak by totally understanding myself. You cannot understand yourself, if you will not take the banner of the 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. and share with somebody next to you. It is one of the biggest relief, it is one of the biggest satisfaction, it is one of the total sumness of our being that we should be in a position to share with others the satisfaction, the calmness and the integrity within ourself we trust.

To share ones inner trust with somebody is the most precious share, is the most precious gift and those of us who belong to house of the 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. must not be satisfied only in this fact that we are Sikh that's not enough, that should never be enough but it should be our primary duty, our total understanding and it should be our realism that with our songs and smiles and with our understanding and our peace with our tranquility and our projection we must share with the other human beings the joy we have that is the way our GurusGuru 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. has let us to believe. That is the way we can reach out the world at large.

You must be aware that in nineteen eighty-two, eighty-three to tell somebody I am a Sikh it was very unknown, Sikh what? But all these four years through media and newspaper, and through sacrifice there is hardly any man in the western world who doesn't know two things Sikhs and Golden Temple, it has been repeated. In other words we do not, might not have paid for this public relation cash but we might have created through the human life that much media concern that not a one person in the world it must be the dumbest person who today doesn't know where is the Golden Temple? What is the Golden Temple and what the Sikhs are?

I was one day standing in Europe in one corner and certain people walked-in and said, "We want to know who, which order you belong to" and some of us said, "We are Sikhs." "Oh, you are Sikhs, oh you are Sikhs, we, we really we are really very sorry what happened to your Golden Temple we really, we really understand it." I, I was shocked in the remote corner of somewhere where it was just a social event but even those people had a shareful feeling and very affectionate way of letting us know that they share as a humanity with us. They didn't ask whether we are American, we are Japanese, we are German or we are Indian or we are French but they totally shared our altar.

The humanity is ready to listen to the words of Nanak and the walls, the Berlin walls we have created in our own self have to fall and we have to carry the cross onto the altar itself. And this is what nineteen-ninety should be. There is a very good American saying, "Death is no good but death in bed is no good at all and death with boots on is not a death at all." So basically this is the time wherever you are, in your schedule I know today it's a very modern world there is a day management book everybody carries I have seen you all, it has all the stuff in that day management you should write down how much I have managed myself in the sphere of my 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. , how much I have today with my day work, daily work I have talked about my 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. . Wherever you fill all your hours eleven thirty, eleven thirty to twelve, twelve thirty to one, one thirty you have lot of hours to fill and man has become very mechanical therefore it is conveniently possible if you just spare in your day management.

Let us say ten percent belongs to the 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. if you make a hundred call make ten calls for the 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 sake. Talk to somebody, 'hey Kernel Singh how are you? Did you do your JapjiJapji , Japji Sahib The Song of the Soul written by the First Sikh Guru, Guru Naanak Dayv Jee. Saadhana opens with a recitation of Japji each morning at 3:40 am. A mantra, poem, and inspired religious scripture composed by Guru Nanak. Japji Sahib gives a view of the cosmos, the soul, the mind, the challenge of life, and the impact of our actions. Its 40 stanzas are a source of many mantras and can be used as a whole or in part to guide both your mind and your heart. today man I didn't what about you?' I mean to say just, just start communicating, it's worthwhile, touch somebody heart and today the world is so small you can do anything you want and when you are carrying your that big purse, your portfolio and you are all very educated there is no need to be aggressive just make it a point that with my 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. and with my life for my sake I have to spare a certain 'X' amount of time, in twenty-four hours calculating lead comes to two and half hour a day.

Two and a half hour or one tenth of the money you earn, the time you live, the environments you have do not belong to you, make it a very pivotal point that belongs to the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. . I shall spend my life one tenth of it doing something to my 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. and I should do one way or the other share myself with the common man and if we act on this graceful way for the year to come 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. shall bring us to the prosperity and we shall multiply out of this tragedy. It is not true that we have problem but it is very true we have stood fast and we can walk tall facing the problem. Handful nation, eighty million people are not great many people stood well a, a Government terrorism stood well, a international conspiracy.

When I was in Rome the, the motorcade of Gorbachev was going to meet Pope John Paul II I have to meet him next day and I was very jubilant so one Italian Sikh ask, "You are very happy today sir what is the matter?"

I said, "Today is a happy matter the Godless has gone to see the man of God though both are bogus or both are real it's not my problem to discuss but fact is today the Godless has gone to see the man of God and why they are doing it," I don't understand but one thing I can assure you KGB shall have not money enough to torture the Sikhs in India and Har Kishan Singh Surjeet will not have enough money to do his work which he has doing for four years and we are blaming the whole world that Sikh tragedy is because of that because of that the fact is that it was a international conspiracy and if the present circumstance continue as they are, you in the west will totally understand what a inter conspiracy was made and the fact is the international conspiracy was made to divert the intension of the United States and all European Governments to the fact because they are very loud about terrorism.

As American we are great terrorist ourself we don't spare anything we want to spare but we, we talk very loud about human rights and we talk lot about terrorism. A conspiracy was created to create a sense of terrorism to divert the total sumness and the total attention of people in the Western world towards India.

We as a nation as Sikhs as a nation have lost so many people just to fill the public relation but just understand it did not work against us it tested our grit, it tested our courage. What I am asking you all is with all the good relations and good wishes the nineteen-ninety should become a matter of total itemized day in which we must make it a point that each day we will dedicate some time it's up to 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. I am not asking you to do what and what not but you will dedicate some time of the day according to 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. to spread the word of GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Guru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. .

We must justify ourself in our relationship as nobody has seen the heavens but everybody feels it, nobody has seen (?) love but everybody feels it. Therefore let us close the year eighty-nine with the words that 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. has blessed us to come through and let us make a understanding that nineteen ninety shall be our year where we should just make a perfect chance in our life to spread the world of the 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. .
