Why? I have by large seen that people here are good at heart and bad at head. Where as the land I come from, my dealing there was when people were good at head and bad at heart. So I am not finding any compensation anyway.

The art of speaking is very simple. If you speak to communicate your honesty, if you speak to communicate your honesty, you should only speak. Otherwise you should never speak. Now how many of you are willing to go through this? If you cannot communicate, what is the purpose of speaking? To communicate you. Bear with me and let us talk. It's a very good thing to understand and everybody should participate. That's how we have to go all day.

What is the purpose of talking? Why we talk? I want to carry me to you and I want you to carry you to me. Is that right? Or is there any other purpose of communication? Come on. Why you speak? What is the purpose of naadNaad The inner sound that is subtle and all-present. It is the direct expression of the Absolute. Meditated upon, it leads into a sound current that pulls the consciousness into expansion. ? Why God gave you mouth to create a sound. If you are a dragon you can let fire go. Okay? If you are Indra you let water go, blast of water. The police uses it these days. They have learned from Indra. And napalm bomb is nothing but that dragon fire. It burns miles and miles. And same way your mouth can set fire out and it can set water out. It can set out breeze and soothness and health and it can set upsetness and nonsense and anything.

But could you, let us make it a point to participate. Why, what is your opinion. Give me your opinion why you want to talk. I am talking now. My opinion is that my student must be successful. That's all I know; I don't know anything else. I don't believe in failure. I believe failure is anti-God. It is a Satan. This is how, you know I am, I am, I am from Sacred Heart convent and I, my first education was the Christianity. I believe that failure is Satan, and to be failing is to worship Satan. And to fail is to believe in Satan. And everything else is God. That is, that's how I have divided the universe. You say you worship God. I say you don't. If you have directly, indirectly anything in 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. of a failure, then you are more of attached to Satan than you are attached to God at all. Believe me or not.

And I believe success is my birthright. Success with women, success with a intercourse, success with a physical intercourse, success with a communication intercourse, everything in this universe is nothing but intercourse. God didn't know anything more than one thing: intercourse. And communicative intercourse is very, very beginning of everything. Physical intercourse is later, psychic intercourse is later, projective psyche intercourse is later, electromagnetic field intercourse is later, projective field intercourse into the psyche and reversibility is later. Intercourse of reversibility of cycle into the psyche of another person in emotions and commotions is later.

There are about sizes and sizes of the intercourses you do. Physonomical physocultural, physopersonal, personality outlet, personality inlets and God, it's a whole science. We'll discuss it and we'll have time. This is where we want to set ourself to practice and experience. That's what I am not into my Ph.D. of the communication of psychology of the human being. I am into simple yogic thing.

But you didn't learn about it. This was the perfect science thousands of years ago, and everybody who has to rule, to be a king, has to learn.

And that is how I came to learn. Because I was the prince, ah, who has to, I have to start as a Prince of Whales for my estate so I was supposed to be taught everything. One of thing which I grabbed was the naadNaad The inner sound that is subtle and all-present. It is the direct expression of the Absolute. Meditated upon, it leads into a sound current that pulls the consciousness into expansion. yog, the vidhiaa, naadNaad The inner sound that is subtle and all-present. It is the direct expression of the Absolute. Meditated upon, it leads into a sound current that pulls the consciousness into expansion. vidhiaa they call it. It is known as naadNaad The inner sound that is subtle and all-present. It is the direct expression of the Absolute. Meditated upon, it leads into a sound current that pulls the consciousness into expansion. vidhiaa. The science of naadNaad The inner sound that is subtle and all-present. It is the direct expression of the Absolute. Meditated upon, it leads into a sound current that pulls the consciousness into expansion. . Communication. Science of communication. Is very old. The entire scripture that guy used to read for his reference was written still on the bamboo, those bamboo strips. And they were written in gold, liquid gold, and I asked him why. He said, "Well, this is the only thing which can preserve it. Otherwise everything is, is eaten up." All that granthGranth Literally: knot: book. , all that stack of knowledge was beautiful done and written in gold, liquid gold, over a very well balanced this wide bamboo. They call it patra.

All right. We talk. Normally we want to talk. Is, is there anybody who doesn't want to talk? So let us talk. Why we talk? Come on, give me the purpose. Anybody. Speak.

STUDENT: To express ourself.

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: To express ourself. That's fine. One. Come on.

STUDENT: Relate information.

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: Relate information, as you did to me. Fine. I remember it. Sure, that's a second purpose

STUDENT: To blend two beings.

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: Huh?

STUDENT: To blend two beings.

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: Oh, far out. That's true. Social-psycho urge. Very good. Yeah?

STUDENT: To release pressure form the mind?

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: True. Absolutely. It's a one thing, talking to trees takes the stress away. True! It's a old boddhi saying. Talk to trees. Talk satya dharmaDharma 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. to trees, they will be enriched and enlightened and you will release the pressure. That's true. Good. Well you see, everybody is intelligent here. Yeah?

STUDENT: To persuade.

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: To persuade. To convince, to win, to get, to grab, all that. True. That's true too. What else?

STUDENT: To cause change in our environment.

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: Cause changes. Adjustability. Change is a heavy word, when you use. Right now the language is to be corrected. If you say, "I want to have a change," you are causing a challenge. You want to change and I don't want to change. So, to cause adjustablilty. It's a heavy word, "adjustability," but it is politer and it make more sense. Yeah, what else?

STUDENT: To project our personality?

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: To project our personality. That's true, that's the only source is, to begin with. That's true, very true. What else?

STUDENT: Raise 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. .

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: Raise 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. . Ours and others too. Just remember, ours and others too. You, number, one thing is very beautiful here. You cannot raise anybody's 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. , then you can never raise yours. Do you know that? Do you know that? You, if you want to know a thing, write that, ah, read that. If you want to know a thing, read that. If you want to learn a thing, write that. And if you want to master a thing, teach that. If you do not know how to raise the consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. of another person, you can never raise your own consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. . Period. You may know the whole world, the entire knowledge of the universe be with you, but that will not make any effectiveness.

All right. Let's go. Yeah?

STUDENT: To tell stories and let you know about the past of people.

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: What? Oh, tell about the story. To reveal the history. That's very well done. Story telling is the most powerful, story telling and humor is the two way of communication where normally you don't get burned and have a loss. Two ways to win in the world is to tell stories and talk through a humor. That will take it. Yeah?

STUDENT: To penetrate?

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: Yeah. To penetrate is not a proper word. Word is better, to rape the psyche. That is our basic need to communicate. You have almost come close so let me tell you that. Purpose of communication in the beast in us is to rape the psyche of anything which is within the range of our auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. multiply by hundred. And then multiply by million. There are two figures which are there. Within the hundred mile we like to talk and we like to communicate within the million mile. What is a million mile? You know a globe all over? So hundred and million. The idea is to rape, the my animal wants to rape the animal psyche of you. The word is "rape." It is the most inhuman way of talking for a human. To rape the psyche of another person. But you'll be surprised to know, seventy percent we do that. And that's a urge. That's a basic human urge: to talk, to project into and not only project.

It is called dog intercourse. Yeah. Not only you project, you interlock yourself. You know? Have you seen the two dogs, male and female, having an intercourse? They do the intercourse and then they turn their backs to each other and get stuck. And that is normal intercourse of communication which beast in us does to the beast in you. You know how unsophisticated and ugly it looks when we just put a, paint a picture about it? But the picture in the scripture is two dogs, their tongue coming out, heh, heh, heh (panting sound). With a dog breath and they are locked. And majority of us in our unacknowledged and unaware life are talking like that.

If you really analyze yourself, sweetly, I mean without prejudice, not putting yourself down, not putting yourself up, you will be surprising, majority of you talk like that. Because you want to create your baby. Here you go. You want to create your puppies. You don't care what the other person want and you don't care what you want. You want to create a third thing called puppies. Otherwise if you really want to communicate, you will respect the other person and other person will respect you and there will be a lot of reverence.

Actually, what is the purpose of communication? Explain it to me. Why you were given the tongue? Yeah?

STUDENT: To share one's soul light with another....

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: Ah, ah, ah, no, no, no, no sharing of soul and business. Soul is always shared within itself. Your soul and my soul is totally in the state of neutral, neutral state of 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. . Perfect.

STUDENT: We want to tune ourselves to other people and tune other people to us?

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: Yeah, that's called controlling. Not flowing.

STUDENT: To experience yourself.

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: To experience myself, what others think about me, or what?

STUDENT: To just experience. Without communication you can't experience yourself.

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: Oh, you want to know who you are? Feel alive. Be alive, feel alive. Yeah?

STUDENT: To listen to yourself.

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: No, the purpose of communication is only and one and one alone. There's a One God and one purpose of...yeah?

STUDENT: To uplift the other person.

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: That's true. That's, not. Actually when you try to uplift other person you are actually uplifting yourself. That's what I explained that before. That's, that's a very great need. We all need to talk. Greatest punish is you give you a solitary confinement and put the walls and everything dark and you cannot talk to anybody and we made an experiment in which we found people do talk to the walls. And very heavily. Yeah?

STUDENT: To praise God?

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: Praise God is talk to Infinity. That is very saintly attire. If you can achieve that then everything will run to you anyway.

The purpose of talking is one and only one. Only one. As there is a One God, one humanity, one light, one earth planet, and there is a one purpose of communication. It is to discharge your honest being, exact quote unquote, I'm translating it literally what is written there. To discharge you honest being.

Now please explain to me how many of you even believe in it. I'm not saying what you do or not. Come on. And how you do it. Stand up. Stand up and explain how, what is your method of discharging your honest being by communication? And don't bring spirituality and all that stuff into it. Just talk in the grass root level where everybody has to understand. And after you follow 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. Terath and anybody else who volunteers please raise your hand and you have to speak. Go head.

STUDENT: To bring, to discharge you honest being by expressing the truth as best you can see it in your own mind in your speech.

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: And you don't care what the other person truth is?

STUDENT: In the past I would have (Can't hear)

YOGIYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. BHAJAN: I know. And which truth is, is a circumstantial, individual or infinite?

STUDENT: That's individual truth.

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: Individual. That's true. That is, that is actually what you feel is liking your psyche and winning it over. You can write a book on it. You saw that book, "How to Win Friends and be happy ..." Huh?

STUDENT: "How To Win Friends and Influence People."

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: And Influence People. That's what it is. Take your individual truth and penetrate and just be smiling and be very diplomatic and get people over and have fun. And that was the best selling book at one time. And it didn't even touch anything we wanted to touch. Okay, 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. Terath, you stand up now. You asked for it boy, get up fast!

STUDENT: Ah, the only time I've experienced communicating absolutely honestly is in chanting.

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: That's true. That's true. Come on, come on. Let us participate. We are the most cozy group in the world at this moment, we are very together. Let us get our scene together right now. Something we are heading for, which is coming out, I want you to all be expressive first. Talk. Any, any other volunteer, come on. You have to stand up. Speak loud because we are taping it too.

STUDENT: I think that we have something inside and we want to let it come out. This is communication. I mean something that we can express only talking and speaking. I don't know what is it, can be....

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: Yah, there is something, but is there is something called honesty in you?

STUDENT: I think so.

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: And can you catch that honesty and communicate rather than carrying the other garbage with it?

STUDENT: Sure.

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: That is communication.

First purpose of life is, this is how you write it down, first purpose of life is know where your honestly is. Second purpose is know where your heart is, third is know your head is and fourth you know your totality is. Honesty is a totality. You give yourself a part of you to somebody. You don't give your total self to somebody. Therefore, no relationship can be honest. And you are going to get a flashback and flack back and somebody's going to be mad at you because you are not honest to begin with. And you are not carrying your honest self to somebody.

What happens through communication is that somebody's going to find your dishonesty later on. And you are the source of it. Somebody will, if you keep your mouth shut nobody will ever know what you are doing, but you cannot keep the mouth shut. You understand?

Therefore, the source of knowledge is nobody except you. Because source of knowledge comes from you in bits and pieces, therefore there is a anger against you because you are not straight forward right out, come out like everything, and the other person takes long time to think about you and then they find out you are not trustworthy. This is how you lose trust. And that is how I gain trust in your hearts. I come right out, blow your mind, you never like it, you always avoid me, do everything. But I don't care. Whatever the situation is I come right out, put a big cannonball, boom! And he say, "Okay, what happened? What he did? What did he did?" And let you lick the wounds later and come to senses and that is what you have to learn to do.

Zero and let yourself go. Total self. Not part of you. Don't, never talk. What is, nobody's forcing you talk. Isn't somebody, the gun on your head and say, "Come on, speak." No, don't talk. But boy, boy, when you talk, it should be right out, total self. Right out, doesn't matter what wrong it does, doesn't matter what wrong...Whatever is the ball is going to be in somebody's court. Let that person deal with it. You let it out. You know what you'll save? No heart attacks, no regrets, calm and clear. Absolute compassionate and very very forgiving.

You want all these qualities? It comes from one source: speak you total self.

Don't try to do the, you know, "Let's go for a lunch, and then let's go for a dinner, let's go for some movie, let's go to some sexy movie." You know that you want to take her to bed. You know that and she knows it too. And you are playing such a long game and while going to dinner you over drink and you never know what time you went to bed and you slept. And she is looking around, "Well this guy spent hundred fifty dollars today. Gave even thirty dollars as a tip to impress me and he is snoring." And she is waiting. And that is the story of every life. You can deny it hundred times over but that's not true.

We need cohabitation. We are very sexual. Even with God we are sexual. We need intercourse, we don't want God. God is everywhere. But our, what is our job? We want to produce God and have a talk face to face. Isn't that true? Is there any man in the earth who doesn't want to confront God? I mean you are so neurotic. You believe me or not? God is everywhere. Leave Him alone, He will leave you alone. But that's not true.

This is not true, that you want to leave God alone. You want to do anything in your power to produce God and have an intercourse. Communicative intercourse. You understand? You want to born out of intercourse, you live through intercourse, you want with God intercourse. That is what is communication. It's called cohibitive intercourse.

Why? Simple. A finite wants a intercourse with Infinity. Simple. Things, let us make things simple. But if you a finite want an intercourse with Infinity, why not finite learn to have an intercourse with finite? That's where you goof. That's where the lack is.

Our first exercise of the day is very funny. Now you are learning alphabetic of the naadNaad The inner sound that is subtle and all-present. It is the direct expression of the Absolute. Meditated upon, it leads into a sound current that pulls the consciousness into expansion. . Now practice with your tongue: Sa, Re, Sa, Re, Sa, Re, Sa, Re, Sa, Re.....(Class begins chanting.)

Use the tip of the tongue only.

Okay, okay, okay. Now you know what I am saying? No, no, keep it there. Don't move. And learn this: Sa, Re, Sa, Re, Sa, Re, Sa, Re...

Thirty-one minutes you have to go.

Concentrate, concentrate, it is changing the chemicals in the brain. Not in your anywhere else.

Keep up, keep up! Now it is a difficult time.

Inhale! Deep, deep. Pull your rib cage with the breath. Pull, pull, pull, pull. There is a chemical reaction going in through the chemical nerve communicating system in the, in your brain. Therefore you have to hold the breath to let the change temporary place. We are carving these, ah, we are reprogramming the brain's communicative habits so it is not something you should be worried about.

And now with a very big thud open your mouth and exhale. And keep it out, keep it out, keep it out. And keep the mouth open, don't, don't close it. Let the air go out, not come in. Try, try the reverse, try the reverse. None of the breath comes in. And now with the nose, inhale deep. And now hold it, lock it. Take the control of the life so that what we have done through this we must achieve it.

Let it go. Keep it out, out. As much out you can. It's a privilege.

Inhale. Now hold it tight. Relax.

Okay, now test it out, how old you are, whatever your age is, you know it better, okay? And you have been talking all your life, right? Now pick up any partner around and start talking about the subject, "Why don't you believe me?" Now, go head, go ahead. "Why don't you believe me," that is the subject. You talk on the subject with anybody you feel like. (Students start talking.)

How many of you find this communication trustworthy? Raise your hands. How many of you are disappointed? Okay. Now sit down with your partner and you must understand it's is nothing more than a clap, have a mock fight. You have to do this systems very honestly because change has already taken place. To bring it to normal to the earth level, we have to do certain things as a exercise. And it should not be considered non-seriously. With hand you can have a mock fight and you can speak things not very obnoxiously, but try to speak as obnoxiously within the means of law. I am taping it. You have the right to swear to the extent that it should not be illegal. Okay, I'll give the signal. Everybody set?

STUDENT: Could you explain it...

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: Oh, just a, just a fight. You know you fight with that and just with hands, it's just fighting. And it doesn't matter how much you fight, and you speak. And speak something, It's nothing more than clapping but it's fighting. (Students begin.)

Inhale. Smile at each other and don't say a word. Don't say a word, just smile at each other. Just don't say a word. Okay. And now shake hands and keep on shaking till I stop you.

STUDENT: Both hands?

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: One hand. Just as you shake hands with a person. And keep looking and keep shaking and say nothing, Utter no word. Just use the body language.

Isn't it funny? But keep going.

Inhale deep. Smile and relax.

We'll meet in hour and a half. You can have lunch, you can go to bathroom, you can do anything you want. And use bathroom when you come, the last act should be to use bathroom and come in because we'll not have a time, because I have to catch a plane and I do not know how much that second set of exercises will take. But I have to go through with you. So in between if we have to have a break, that means another half, forty-five minutes off and that's not we want to do. Fair? Okay.

Now, we had a interval, you know? And you must have talked in this interval. Did you? Do you understand how you are talking now? I want you to be just conscious how you used to talk, how you are talking and how you will be talking. The change is inevitable and changes are positive.

Speaking to people and communicating with people and trying to convince people is something, but there is a greatest blunder which we commit. And that is through communication we try to control people. And the danger in that is if you try to control somebody, you have to also be in control of that person's problems. You think you can get away with a person. Truth is that you are getting away with his problems. Everybody wants to be controlled by everybody. Simply they want to get rid of their problems. And when you are out to get a person, you are out to get the problems, which is not very effective. It is not effective in the life scale. And it is rhythmically wrong. It is wrong as a association, it is wrong as a cohabitation, it is wrong as an intercourse. But you can't control, your urge cannot control, but to control.

There is a basic insecurity in us that, "Well, this is my wife. I want to control her." And, "That's my husband. I want to control him." Fact is, nobody can control anybody. All you can do is you can flow. You can flow with each other, as like rivers and streams flow with each other and they go end up in the same ocean. All things comes from God, all things go to God. It's a very simple formula which you have learned but question is...

The problem is in our brain there is a no nerve connecting system of sending message from one part of the brain to another. Is a kind of a admixture solution. What they call it, Doctor? If you send a message from hypothalamus to something, there's no connecting thing but it goes through...yeah, dissolves into a kind of a solution and message is gone in between the areas of the brain. There's no inter...Hey, do you remember?

STUDENT: Neuro-transmitters.

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: Neuro-transmitter in the brain is what? Is a kind of solution. Huh?

STUDENT: Acetylcholine. (??#B434)

STUDENT: There are a lot of different chemicals. Different parts of the brain have different chemicals...

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: Different parts of brain make different parts of chemicals, different parts of chemicals different type of energy, different kind of energy is decoded and...it happens very fast but fact is there's no wiring there. There's no wire. That's, that's something you have to understand.

And now I understand why that was to be like that. Because man can improve his whole life by changing that chemical material which carry the messages. And my personal feeling is that man must have found out centuries and hundred centuries and thousand centuries ago. Actually that might be tomorrow's solution to make ourself healthy and make ourself better and make ourself untired. Because actually your total strength is not in your muscles, your total strength is in your that chemical communicating solution. CCS.

NaadNaad The inner sound that is subtle and all-present. It is the direct expression of the Absolute. Meditated upon, it leads into a sound current that pulls the consciousness into expansion. namod rasa. Rasa means actually solution. Rasa means juice.

Meditated upon, it leads into a sound current that pulls the consciousness into expansion. means communication. Namodam (??B#466) means addressing. And it is almost so many hundred thousand BC ago this word existed. NaadNaad The inner sound that is subtle and all-present. It is the direct expression of the Absolute. Meditated upon, it leads into a sound current that pulls the consciousness into expansion. namodam rasa. Now I never used to think, what is in the brain, this naadNaad The inner sound that is subtle and all-present. It is the direct expression of the Absolute. Meditated upon, it leads into a sound current that pulls the consciousness into expansion. naodam rasa, but that's what it is. It is those chemical solution interconnecting each parts of the brain and each part make a different chemical solution and the messages are transmitted and action...very fast. I mean don't misunderstand there's no such thing as time and space, but that's what it is.

So at that time there must have been surgery or not, they must have opened the brain and found it under the skull what it is, but when they wrote about it they were very accurate. I was told in explanation that those rishis or swamisSwami Master. or yogisYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. used to go in their any part of the body and find out size, shape, transmission power, tissues, nerves, everything.

Well, whatever it was, it was. We made you to teach two first the letter of the sargam. Sa, Re. That's all you learned this ah, for morning, two words. But you, you chanted them right and that could produce a right effect. And that's very important. That's a very important how you participate in this course. It's a course for participation.

That's why you have to understand in the Orient they make not a student just by telling you are student, and you don't make a teacher by telling you are a teacher. That doesn't happen there. Student comes and say, "I want you to be my teacher."

He say, "Okay. Well, I'll try you out." And sometime try-out means ten, twelve years. Giving him impossible super impossible tasks. And see that if he has developed that will and grit to go through it. And when they do that, they do give, oh, it may be very crude and obnoxious for the Western world, but for the Eastern world, they give him the crudest job.

Milarepa's (??#B514) teacher one day got so mad at him, he put splinters in his nails and feet and hands so he cannot walk and he cannot...because when he put splinters in his feet he walk on hands and become so expert he could walk faster than any man who walks on feet. So he put splinters in his foot and hand so he couldn't walk, he starting bundling up and the bundle roll, that's Milarepa's roll actually. He started bundling roll so fast that person, those flying Tibetans, you know? Flying Tibetans? They fly, they take about eighteen to fifty feet leap. They almost, you can't see them when they touch, they're very fast. They are the fastest. And the fastest horse cannot touch them; they are very fast. They are very light weight like frog type, but you know, fifty to hundred feet going just in one leap is a lot of leap. And that's kind of one step. He became a rolling person, I mean, he rag himself and become a bundle and will roll with such a power that he found out the fastest way and he'll be the first student sitting there.

So I mean, when you, your teacher...You have a teacher, right? I mean not teacher what you think teacher. I'm talking of student and a teacher relationship. Job of the teacher is to give you the most impossible work. And job of the students is do it. And mind you, it may be a total loss. I mean, I'm not very keen on that, but I am saying if it is a total loss, but what you are going to develop? You are going to develop the power to do the impossible as possible. And when a person under pressure can develop a 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. that he can make the impossible to possible, he is perfect.

What is God then? God is which makes the impossible possible. What is a miracle? Which is impossible becomes possible. And that is the oriental way of dealing with it. Take a student, give him one impossible job, if he does it give him two more, if he does that give him six. Eight, ten, hundred.

I definitely remember once I went to see my teacher and it was midnight. About one o'clock. Little later than midnight. He said, "Ah, ha. I just wanted you."

I said, "Sir, what I can do?"

He said, "I need yogurt." Now even if a homemade yogurt, at one o'clock it is never ready. Even if he tell me at five, six o'clock I would have brought him a truck load of it. If he told me at five, six evening I could have brought a truck load of it. But about eight, nine o'clock people put the culture in it and it is not done by one o'clock.

And I said, "How much you need?"

He said, "Well, as much as possible, it's all right."

SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down for a minute. I said, "This man knows that at this time homemade yogurt is impossible." I said, "Fine. Thank you, sir." And I left. And I left and I was gone. At about five-thirty I brought him as much he needed and as much he could have in his whole house. After all, what a big house he had. He didn't say a word, I didn't say a word. And for rest of the day he was distributing that yogurt, but my God, I just managed to get as much as possible because I thought about myself. I said, "There is a trick in it. He said go and get it, he never said come back right now." So I went and I went to different shop keepers and told them, "How much yogurt tomorrow in the morning you will have?"

He say, "I'll have sixty those pots."

I say, "All booked." "How many you have got?"

He say, "Forty pots."

"All booked." Money didn't mean at that time to me, I mean to say it was just a joke. So almost wherever I found there was a haloaa-ee (??#B603), it means those people who sell yogurt, I told them, "How much you have in stock?" He said, "This much."

I say, "All sold." So next morning I took that cart, you know those tongas, they're something driven by horse, I told them, "Well pick from here, pick from here, collect the whole thing," and yogurt is ready by four o'clock. So I took one o'clock onward time to just book them, then collect them and then brought them.

So what they do is they test your intelligence, you ability, your sharpness. Dull things don't penetrate. Repeat it. And dull people don't live. Now you are sad to say it, huh? (Laughs) Dull people don't live!

Utter the word, "Aa, oo, um." (Class repeats.) Ah, oo, um. The triplex of the word is in this word. Aa, oo, um. Let me tell you God is the Infinite. Aa, oo, um. Aa means come. Is the first voice. Aa is the first voice. Wha is the first infinite voice and aa is the first finite voice. Oo is Thou or Om or Ongkaraa. Um, it means we, the life, the flow. Aa, oo, um. Aa. Is a sacred word, it's secret. Don't give it to anybody without two hundred fifty dollars (laughs). You understand?

And now, please, put your hands like this.

And if this way you serve seven generations, and then they will tell you "aa-oo-um." (Laughs) Can you buy it? It's true!

Now try to get upset if you can. You can't. You can't. I mean you do not understand how the word change the chemistry and how the chemistry in you changes you. Now try to get upset. Get with your partners and get with hand and fight. See how you do it. (Class repeats hand fight.)

(To student:) Hey, she is playing martyr, she should play equally with you. That is your power.

Inhale. Okay now sit down. Now you have to create something to, you know sometime you have a beautiful house, beautiful environments, and bugs walk in. And sometime you have not been told and it has never been told to you how to kill the bugs, right? So you go to the exterminator, you ask him to come, he charges you money, he gets in the house and then he certifies you that it is all done. You never knew it. And mostly I think, he doesn't know it that he did it. But you paid the bill and you feel the satisfaction you did it.

That is exactly about spirituality. You are with a teacher. Teacher doesn't care. Because you must understand, to be a teacher is the most difficult job. Hardly you have met a teacher. Because teacher, you to a teacher is just a bead of a rosary. you don't understand the relationship between teacher and student. Teacher allows you to let your ego be because that much he is free. When you lean on teacher for knowledge egolessly, then you have to be ten times better than him. There is no other way. It is natural way, it's a natural balance.

But in your life, because some Western environments not to trust anybody, not to be with anybody, called freedom, call independence, call anything, you have a problem which is natural and which is abnormal. In this abnormal environments where we are, we have lot of bugs in our communication. Honestly we don't want anything. We want to be clear hearted, we want to be humble, we want to be great. What we want and what we are, that's a conflict.

It used to be a gurushala. Gurushala was a state of mind where you go, you live there, you go through the discipline because you admired it and the teacher admired it and it used to be very perfect arrangement. from gurushala we got into the idea of a dharamasala. Dharamasala means a place where dharmaDharma 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. was taught. So gurushala and dharamasalsa were almost one situation, kind of an institution. And finally when they both got together it was called ashramAshram , Aashram A community of practitioners who come together to live conscious, mindful lives. . And that's how things were.

AshramAshram , Aashram A community of practitioners who come together to live conscious, mindful lives. everybody cannot open. AshramAshram , Aashram A community of practitioners who come together to live conscious, mindful lives. is the privilege of a individual who undertakes to serve those who come to him in the Name of God. It's not a controlling factor, it is a serving factor. You serve these people and their destinies. You don't serve individual. Teacher never ever serves individual. Individual doesn't mean anything. Just another human body running around. It is the destiny which that body begot which has to be served to be fulfilled. Otherwise the body will meet the fate.

There's no much option with you. You sometime think, "I can do this, I can.." You cannot do anything. You can do only one of the two. Either you can meet your destiny or you can meet your fate. Choice is yours. It is never the will and the wish.

But you know, we have to understand that we are, now, as relaxed you are, you should be as relaxed all the time. But it took us, what, we started about ten or eleven o'clock, something like, eleven o'clock something? And now it is four. Five hours. We took a rest in between but five hours. And now this, this, this is a good auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. .

(Tape 2 Side B)

This is, this is something you can take it. I mean if some pressure comes and something upsets you, you can take it. Actually you should be all the time to take everything, filter it and give back the best thing. What is the best in you is your own honesty. There's nothing better in you or best in you than your own honesty. Sometime you are beautiful, you think you are beautiful, sometime you are professional, you think you are professional. Sometime you, you are so many things. But the greatest effective thing which you can transport and sell and give it, or gift it out, is your total honesty.

But suppose somebody gives me a beautiful sweet and on the top of it there is a dead fly, am I going to eat it? You know? First I'll say is a black pepper, but when I look and I see the wings, I'm going to say, "Wait a minute."

Exactly same thing, you know, when somebody brought to me very long distance and brought me the keerKeer Rice pudding. , you know, rice pudding? And I thought it is a raisin, but there should be more than one raisins! But there was only one raisin. Lot of almonds but one raisin. But I took the raisin out and figure it out, I said, "Wait a minute. This is a organic raisin. It's not which I need." So what I mean, the whole work done is lost. One bug in your life, one neurosis in your life can take away your whole life and waste it.

Quick breath!

Keep up! You are getting somewhere.

Inhale! Individually sing. Sing! Everybody has to have a individual song and sing it. (Class begins to sing.) It is called bathroom singing. Nobody is going to judge you. Sing free and free and free!

All right inhale! Sing everybody "Beautiful America." (Class sings "America the Beautiful.") You could do better job than this, I know that. Now try to just be better. Qualify yourself as a very professional singer and what you are going to sing, just the National Anthem, right? Come on, one, two, three, go! (Class sings "America the Beautiful" again.) Good! Now can you just sing the same song with absolute honesty? Absolute honesty, I repeat. Absolute honesty. One, two, three, go! (They sing again.)

Now feel how you want to feel. Just, just feel in yourself. And now talk to each other how you feel, how clear you feel, how you feel. Make the partners, please. Communicate your feelings now. Honestly.

How you feel?

CLASS: Great!

And this is called the silver dome exit, and move! Pur(??#A002) complete, just as you are a rotating sense. Lock your hand with complete weight. All right, move! Both sides as honestly as you can. Move at your base, the spine the serum, the brain, the whole thing can just...it is called coating.

Move, move, move, move! You are moving at your own base, don't worry. You are involving liver, spleen, you are involving hypothalamus, you are involving entire gray matter in the brain, you are involving the whole thing. But you have to stir up the lower vertebras. You have to be really good about it.

Come on, come on, it is not something we are asking you to blow up another country and be a terrorist. We are asking you to just do a one simple job: move your body. Come on, come on!

Now sing the song. Move, move! (Class begins to sing "America the Beautiful.") Now move faster and sing, "God and me, me and God are one. God and me, me and God are one." (They continue.)

Move, move, move!

Inhale! Now sing. (They sing "America the Beautiful.) Very good. Louder!

Very good. Relax. How you feel?

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: Well, in this situation what we have tried to incarnate is how to communicate honestly your personality out. If there will be a chance to teach another course sometime somewhere, we'll like to teach through the process how to receive the essence of honesty in the communication. But is being blasted towards you. There is a two way system, you know. You, you communicate, and you receive communication. And what happens is what you communicate and what you are being communicated, between the two, your computer in subconscious stored the memory and work out your patterns. And that becomes the lifestyle.

You have to understand that neither your ego works nor you work. That's all mechanism. Mechanism has no value. The process of passage is designated and designed and covered not by you. It is covered by two process. Your communication and you being communicated. Whatever that subconscious process is, that is what you are. And our next effort will be to talk to your communication and talk to your subconscious and try to style out the patterns.

I don't believe all of you will come. I also do not know where we'll have the course. But delightfully you can look in your own heart and feel. When you started in the morning and now, how much change you have taken place.

And progressively, art of communication is whenever you open your mouth remember you are ejecting your honest self. Don't con the results. Don't ever con the results.

I tell you why. If you try to con the results and you have not ejected the best shot of you, that is total honesty, you will never win the trust. Relationship is not based on communication. Relationship is not based on communication, relationship is based on how honestly you are being trusted. And there is no such thing as relationship which has no foundation. Dishonest foundation has no relationship. Do you understand? Dishonest relationship has no foundation, and without foundation...

Even this building, I saw it around. I mean to say, it is very solid stone foundation. It's built very well. And if you want your life, you have to have a foundation of communication and it has to be solid and honest and trustworthy. You can love the whole world but you can trust few. Am I right?

And the few you trust become the lead in your life, and few you trust when they hurt you, you are hurt so bad. Your money, your bank credit, your wife, your children all get hurt. How to avoid that? How to get through it, this is the science and the knowledge it is with the ancient and it is called naadNaad The inner sound that is subtle and all-present. It is the direct expression of the Absolute. Meditated upon, it leads into a sound current that pulls the consciousness into expansion. yoga. Science and art of communication. And in this there is a word or there are naads. These are all what you have chanted are called naads through which the chemistry of the communication serum is changed. Nobody's outside injected you anything, you injected within yourself and processes will be changed.

And that is how it is done. We'll invite you all to continue in this course wherever we take place. And we like to make you feel different in practical, in theory, in projection and in your incumbent base of your personality. I believe no change is possible or worthwhile if it does not change the foundation.

What matters to you is what matters to you. And patchwork will never ever give you the satisfaction of you. and the best is not to do the patchwork, best is to hit right at the base and build it all the way up. And I welcome you and I invite you. We understand the course was on Monday. That was a mistake. We could have done it on a weekend, lot of people could have enjoyed it. But on the other hand, it will not be very good to expose it just like, "Come everybody and just have fun and whole day..." Some people even can't chant half an hour.

So basically I think it was a very good group and we all were here and we tried our best. We were eighty percent really trying. Here and there somewhere we were just tired, we never wanted to do it. That's American style. NaadNaad The inner sound that is subtle and all-present. It is the direct expression of the Absolute. Meditated upon, it leads into a sound current that pulls the consciousness into expansion. yoga in American style. In purity of the Indian style, you would have overdone it. In purity of American style is you have little underdone it, but you will feel the system has effectively changed you. It's not within your process.

Now, there is a homework. And homework is, just for forty days form now, speak softly, medium soft. "Could you please get me a glass of water." That's called medium soft. Harsh is, "Get me a glass of water, could you please?" When please comes later it is harsh. When please comes first it is medium soft. And when come, "If you, my dear, be pleased to get me a glass of water," it is soft. There are three ranges of the same thing. Purpose is to ask glass of water. But when you speak soft you are exalted. When you speak medium you are acknowledged. When you speak harsh, you are shitting at yourself. There's no better expression in English what I am telling you.

Anyone other than your spiritual teacher is not publicly morally authorized to raise a voice. Because we are only entitled to shout and yell and scream when we have to project and penetrate the auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. , otherwise it's one of the most animal job a spiritual teacher has to do. Because when we have to break your arc and ego, and penetrate, then we have to play this badminton match, tennis, whatever you want to call it. You serve the ball really sharp and we serve back and you this and this and you this and this. It's called wrestling. It's not called communication, remember this. Embattled communication is not communication at all. So you are entitled to practice medium soft. You understand that?

All right. Any volunteer, please? Yeah?

Same words, same time, one is effective, one is just a excessive flow. Doesn't mean anything.

STUDENT: When we were doing one of the meditationsMeditation 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. the sound could either have been in my throat or here at the tenth gate or more nasal. Did it matter where it was placed?

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: No, no, you understand, we were doing the base work. Base work was we were opening up your naadees. We were opening up you base. We were allowing you, we were changing your chemistry. Let us put it that way. It was a very open, challenging thing to do. You were totally timed, you went through the process, and achievement was very surprisingly better. Achievement is about eighty percent. I've never seen so sincerely eager students...normally I started fourteen years ago, I had a lot of difficulty in teaching. And effectively, the sciences I teach are very effective. The idea is that person should be invincible. This is how I believe: good times and bad times are just times. Good times are good times and bad times are bad times, but both are times. But you should remain you. And I believe good time can destroy you and bad time can destroy you. So destruction is both times, so if you think good times will not destroy you forget it. And if bad time will not destroy you, you also are mistaken. Neither good time can save you nor....Rich are also more sick than the poor. If richness would have bought God, everybody would have bought Him by pounds. And if a success would have brought you the respect, then every successful man should be respected. Well actually, successful man are hated most.

STUDENT: These exercises and chants you gave us today, are they something we can do...

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: Yah, you have to practice them. Any time. There not, there's no- I'll be not teaching every day believe me or not. It's quite a thing to teach. And it took me fourteen years to decide even. So I am not out in the market much. You can do it yourself and you can start your own NaadNaad The inner sound that is subtle and all-present. It is the direct expression of the Absolute. Meditated upon, it leads into a sound current that pulls the consciousness into expansion. Yoga course and take all the notes and teach it, fine with me.

(Tape #3, sideB)

I'm not upset. I do not know how much I can teach and how much I like to teach. My idea is very simple. Once a while I get into a mood and I unload myself and some people get benefited and some don't come and that's how it goes. It's all in a family matter, you know.

I'll prefer that you people practice all these, but the homework with this is for forty days you will speak medium soft. Medium soft. And at night when you go to bed, you have a paper and you will write down how many time you goofed. Yeah! It's a very, without that you can't, because otherwise you will polluting the chemistric, chemistry change which we have made and then you, you will reverse back to what you were.

STUDENT: Could you show us the difference between soft and medium soft?

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: Huh? I did that. Where were you?

STUDENT: I was here.

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: So? You will tell him? Isn't difficult for him not to understand first hand why he didn't understand the first hand? When you say, "Would you please get me a glass of water?" it is medium soft. When you say, "Would you please, would it please you, would it please you to get me a glass of water?" it is soft. And when you say, "Could you get me a glass of water?" it is harsh.

STUDENT: It's not the volume of the voice, it's the manner.

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: The words will make the volume. Because when you have the reverence you will speak soft. When you have the control you will speak harsh.

STUDENT: You mentioned that only the spiritual teacher is entitled to penetrate the student's auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. by speaking in a very direct, blunt maybe, powerful way. Is it true that a student only has one spiritual teacher in his lifetime?

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: That is true. You have a doubt about it?

STUDENT: No, I have no doubt about it. So, in my life, you are the only one entitled to speak to me that way.

YOGIYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. BHAJAN: I am not entitled to teach you or speak you anything, but I am your spiritual teacher, you are stuck with me that way. But the problem you have to understand is that you have to honor me too by getting out of my bondage. And getting out of my bondage is that you should be ten times better than me. That was the agreement when I started in United States.

I don't want puppies. I want angels. You know the difference is I don't want five hundred people, five thousand, fifty thousand people following me. That's not my program. I, I, I feel very bugged about it. But here the problem is keep the student and keep him milking. I don't believe that. My first lecture on the fifth of January in United States in 'sixty-nine was, "I have come here to produce teachers for tomorrow. I have not come here to collect students." And that is how I will go about. And that is how I am going about. I have absolutely no shadow of doubt in my total personality what my purpose is. And that's why I am quick, I am fast, I am over-working. I mean I could have taken a time and relaxed and done it. But I am not...because I definitely know the responsibility. Those who shall not meet their destiny shall meet their fate. And I can't betray it. You have a whole life at stake. I can't betray you. You can betray yourself, fine with me.

STUDENT: My question was, is anybody else, even in the DharmaDharma 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. , entitled to speak to me in that way as to...

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: Oh, Siri 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.

Go to the third 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 start reading Rag Maru. The music of death. He starts playing very well. Brings your ego to almost minus zero. The most beautiful poetry which hits right at the heart is third 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. . Very beautiful. I go through it my time, many times. In the utmost pain of my life I , I go through that baniBani Literally "Word", Refers to the Word of God contained in the Sikh Sacred Writings; Banis refers to Sikh daily prayers. . It's beautiful.

STUDENT: What's the best thing to do when somebody talks to you harshly?

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: When somebody tells you harshly, all right, let us, has anybody - oh, you know how to speak harshly. You do it with your wife every day. Why don't you come on and be harsh with me and let me tell you...Oh, come on, come on.

STUDENT: Sir,

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: No, no. It doesn't, that will not suffice. You speak to me very harshly.

STUDENT: I have to have a subject.

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: Well, pick up any subject. Doesn't matter, because if I tell you the subject I'll be already pre-prepared. I don't want to read you. I just want to contain you so come on with anything.

STUDENT: How can you make me stand up here and, and in front of all these people I don't know what, you know, it's just...

YOGIYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. BHAJAN: I thought I should give you distinction honor. So everybody should know you. You are not very...now I am going to be harsh and see how polite I am. You are not very tall, you are not very distinct, you are not very beautiful, and I thought I should just show you off. I mean what is the bid deal?

Words are the power of God. You can, you can play words. What you can gain through word is the entire world. What 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. did, what Jesus did, what Abraham did, what Moses did, what Rama did, what Krishna did is the game of the words. I

f Krishna would not have had Gita to his credit, who is going to worship a man who has eighteen thousand wives? Believe me. If Rama would not have the Maryada Prashotmi (??#B125) to his credit who will worship that man who make his pregnant wife run away from the house when he, she went through even the aganee priksha, she went to show her innocence and purity, she walked through the entire fire and was untouched. So I mean to say,(??#B134) these people did grow some things but encounteringly they are in surplus. I mean to say, Jesus is Christ and God bless him he is the only son, but what he did in the groves under the trees only he knows. I mean to say, that's a fact of life, but basically when he went on the cross all looked to his Father, the God, and he become the son of God and the Christ.

So if you think all your life you have to have a scale to be always right, that's not true. Good times and bad times. Bad times and good times will continue. Question is who you are. If you are who you are and you come out to be who you are, you are, you did it.

So we'll speak, once again, moderately. Right? Wow.

May the longtime sun...(class sings).

Beloved God, bless us. Besiege us with Thy love. Nurse us with Thy light and give us the chance to experience the most beautiful world of yours. And when the end comes may Thy praise be on our tip of the tongue and may we leave for home in absolute grace, divinity and dignity. And may we all be blessed by Thy company alone.
