We have been listening to meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. for twenty years in United States, including me and you. I was in the world health, whole world's symposium... What was that hey?

Student: Whole life festival.

YB: Whole life festival, Expo. I have never seen more headings and headlines than I could imagine. But there are certain system about meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. . MeditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. is not that you and I can interpose or impose. Actually, to be very frank with you, there are two hundred fifty million Americans, not a one person knows what a meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. is, what it does. As you take a bath, if you don't, after few days, you start stinking. Naturally, body odor will start exposing you up and then how much French bath you may take, you cologne and all that, body will not be the same. Your own bacteria's, your own sweat will start taking its toll. Exactly is the status of mind. If you do not know how to meditate, your subconscious and unconscious start cluttering you, clogging you and making you to stink. There is no two other ways, this is a way of extreme stress.

What is stress? There are lot of definitions of stress. Stress is very simple thing, a very simple statement. You have to do what you have to do and you should do it. When you cannot do what you have to do, you do dodo and that is what stress is all about. World has become very small, things have to be done and the tragedy is, you know when you are born, there is a beautiful therapy, primal therapy they say when a child is born, there is a tremendous amount of stress and that changes the life. I say, there are so many deaths in your life you can't believe it.

A baby is born, then out of that child is born, out of that, teenager is born, out of that adult is born, out of that grown up is born, out of that, it goes on and on till you are dead. Trials, turmoils are many.

You in the western world are not ready for the status of a teacher. Therefore, you can never learn teachings. The western world is a world of preachers, people come, talk to you in the name of God, and you got to listen to that. And you have certain prejudices, certain faith and you live by that, all that doesn't make sense. After all, this life is totally you and if your vitality inside is not enough to meet the outside pressure, your virtues become your vices, your happiness become your tragedy, your love become your pain. Things are the same, effect is adverse.

How long you as human being are willing to suffer? It is very surprising if God would not have made your machine as it is, many of you would not have walked on this Earth, in any shape form and self.

Tonight I am going to share with you just one meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. . I think this is our last class in Albuquerque and after that I will be in Espanola teaching the young kids and then I will be gone to Los Angeles. Hoping to return back in the month of April. That's my intention but it all depends upon circumstances. But tonight I will not ask you to even understand what you are doing, I am just asking you to participate, co-operate and experience what meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. is.

You are made of five tattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities. In total there are 36 tattvas. Each wave of differentiation has its own rules and structure. The final five tattvas are called the gross elements and have the phasic qualities and relationships of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. ; ether, air, fire, water, Earth. And doesn't matter how you are and what your degrees are and what your money is, how sensual and sexual you are, how successful and powerful you are, how weak and beggar you are, that doesn't make any difference. It is a different science of work and human and knowledge.

If your tattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities. In total there are 36 tattvas. Each wave of differentiation has its own rules and structure. The final five tattvas are called the gross elements and have the phasic qualities and relationships of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. are not in proportionate balance, you are out of step and out of balance your whole day, thus whole week, thus whole month, thus whole year and if that continues, you are out of spot for rest of your life. Then what you do? You use your reserve to survive. One day you can't, you fall apart. It's as simple as that. Car is perfect, everything is fine, driver is okay, registration is right, lights are all okay. But one day car won't stop, something has gone wrong, you do not know what to do. Or another day car will not start, you do not know what to do. This things happen to your machine, same day things can happen to your body. When the unconscious start releasing its thought to the subconscious, that is where life starts with tragedy.

So long the conscious is unloaded by subconscious, life is miserable, but when unconscious start releasing in subconscious and subconscious start releasing in conscious, life and tragedy become one, It is not how good you are at work, it is not how good you are placed in your life, it doesn't matter how beautiful is your wife and beautiful husband you got and how much is your salary; that makes no difference whatsoever. We in the west do not understand it. People in the east call it the science of humanologyHumanology A complete system of psychology to promote human excellence and spirit. It incorporates the technology of Kundalini Yoga and meditation, the use of the Shabd Guru, and the principles of spiritual counseling. .

Human and human facets and human aspects are to be balanced by human on every breath; that means every two seconds. And that's how important they are. They have come down to the most bare minimum and they are very successful. That's why you will see some funny things. There are more people in the east than in the west, there is more poverty in the east than in the west. You called them third rate countries. With all that they survive better. Why? They have lost their physical grip on life, but their mental grip is still all right. Because centuries and century they have survived in their life with their mental grip.

Let us all understand tonight who we are and what do I mean when I say, your tattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities. In total there are 36 tattvas. Each wave of differentiation has its own rules and structure. The final five tattvas are called the gross elements and have the phasic qualities and relationships of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. are out of balance or tattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities. In total there are 36 tattvas. Each wave of differentiation has its own rules and structure. The final five tattvas are called the gross elements and have the phasic qualities and relationships of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. in balance. I am not talking of the chakras, I am not talking of the nervous system, I am not talking of the conscious, subconscious. I am giving you tonight a most elementary meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. , just kindergarten (?) and I will speak in the middle of it, this is what you are getting into, this is what is happening, this is how it is and it shall be that way. Are you ready? Let us be pleasant and start.

MeditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. is very simple; please if it is ready and you make these fingers just like a cup of flower, like a flower and the palm of the hand in such a way that water can stay it, look round because then you won't even be in a position to look around, just simple, see what this does to you. I am not asking you to create any miracle, miracle shall be created tonight, there is no way out, teachings are not wrong. Now look at the tip of your nose and stay as it is.

These five fingers represent Mercury, Sun, Saturn, Jupiter and Id, they are your fingers not mine, this is your body not mine and energy shall start flowing, if you just put your optical nerve under control and that is by looking at the tip of nose. If you can concentrate by sight on the tip of nose and keep this hand as it is and don't move, you will start going through changes which you will not like very soon. You can play as gimmick out of it, it is this, it is that, it is nothing, it is just a balancing inter lock is opening up. We are opening up a vault of the mind.

Stabilize and steady and move on. Just remember, the palm of the hand should be always in the state we started and that means if rain is falling it can contain water, hand should become like a cup. Finger should be equally open, like five antennas (?) not touching each other, don't intermix the power of the stars. Your very body will start going through changes. If anybody is outside walk in. It will start changing the very molecule and everything which is called weak in your body in another two minutes. That's how fast it is and exactly two minutes from now you will start feeling the pressure and funny part is something you never care to know about, see about and talk about will come you and your power.

Concentrate; you are not yet meditating, you are just concentrating. You are in a posture. Right now. Next eleven minutes, your glandular system will start adjusting itself, your body will start going through changes, your mind will either go very calm or extremely berserk, you can totally feel irritated or extremely calm, either of the two condition will start happening, journey will start, it depends whether you start traveling towards the south or toward the north. It depends upon your present frequency of your magnetic field.

You can heal your body tonight better than any other treatment you can even imagine, it is self-healing, therefore, it is little difficult but it is the same system, I for myself.

Stabilize yourself, stabilize, now you need courage and strength. You shall be exercising now self-control. In other words, what I am saying be in command, not let body command you. I am teaching you how to get rid of your death, how to clean your body with the strength of your physical strength and not letting mind do its number. You are totally acting normal. Now the breath will start regulating itself according to the need of the oxygen in the bloodstream. Please allow your breath to adjust itself.

Now start hypnotizing yourself, I am not doing it, I am not it, I was not, I am not, I not shall be and start watching yourself, then be yourself. Look at yourself, watch at yourself, hypnotize yourself with the thought, I am not. Say no to everything. Forget about good, bad, right, wrong, positive, negative, neutral, maybe, should be, all that and in a state of self-hypnosis start using yourself to the field of basic shuniyaShuniyaa , Shuniya A state of the mind and consciousness where the ego is brought to zero or complete stillness. There a power exists. It is the fundamental power of a Kundalini Yoga teacher. When you become shuniaa then the One will carry you. You do not grasp or act. With folded hands you "are not." It is then that Nature acts for you. , basic point, basic zero. Make yourself a zero, like a halo of light, a ring around you enlightened by thirty trillion dancing, living megawatt light enlightened self. Put your state of self-hypnosis that you are surrounding by thirty trillion megawatt light dancing around you.

Steadier, steadier. Go into a deep self-hypnosis. In exactly one minute from now you shall be healing yourself and you shall feel it, not that I have to confirm it or a miracle is happening, your only state of hypnosis, whether it is good or bad, there is no judgment to it, will start actively oriented in your being and your brain and your motor system and your computer in the brain and your sets of neurons start remitting the necessary ingredients. No question asked. Don't please have any misunderstanding I am doing anything or Almighty God is doing anything. It's all a process has started in you. If you continue, it will bring you health, it will bring you prosperity and it will give you virtues.

How, how many, you can ask somebody to throw the tarot cards and let you know or go to some psychic, that's not here. Here is a basic feeling as a human you shall feel. You will feel, you don't have to certify from somebody, you will feel it within you. Go your in state of hypnosis, work out your KarmaKarma The law of cause and effect applied to mental, moral, and physical actions. Ego attaches us to and identifies us with objects, feelings, and thoughts. These attachments create a bias toward certain lines of action. Instead of acting you begin reacting. Karmas are the conditions required in order to balance or complete these tendencies. Though necessary, karma is not dictatorial or fatalistic. It is the mechanism that allows the finite experience of existence to maintain and stabilize itself. We all have free will and can take actions to re-direct the momentum of a karma. We can transform it or neutralize it using meditation, jappa, good deeds, or intuition that remove your sense of ego and the identification with that past line of action. , don't suffer anymore as human, it is not right. Qualify yourself and classify yourself and go in a deeper state of self-hypnosis and watch out your body, look at your body and leave the body and let the body repair itself. Give your body a chance to repair, give your mind a chance to be cleaned. A cleaned mind can think for you better, do for your better and provide you better environments of life. A good body can serve you better, can feel for you better and can do lot more than otherwise.

Normally, your hand will start changing but that's not correct. The antenna of those five fingers are very important. They are; Mercury planet, Sun planet, Saturn planet, Jupiter planet and Id. And when we make a hand into a cup that water can stay there, the central nucleus and that is the sun point, shall be in the very center of the Id. Changes are inevitable, deeper you hold yourself in a best of your own hypnosis. Just like sky, just like this roof, look at yourself. Now lock yourself into the healing process. Restore your confidence, restore your power, restore your capacity and watch yourself, don't be yourself; that's the secret. Watch yourself from the high to below, please watch yourself. Within five minutes you shall consolidate yourself totally getting out of your physical into your ether. The sounds look very mystique and mystical but they are not. You are right now entering if you concentrate right, into your subtle bodySubtle Body See Ten Bodies. . Deeper, deeper, very, very deep. Different between man and monkey is; monkey cannot control itself, man can.

Next three minutes, you can achieve anything you want. But you have to be in your own control. Please stabilize yourself in your self-control. Please transform yourself into baby pose, sit on your heels and put your head on the ground and relax. Normally babies do that, now that will automatically heal you without any your excursion, don't worry, body will adjust, it's mean to. If it is uncomfortable, avoid the trouble but if you can do it you will be fine. It will take care of your blood pressure, it will take out your heart problems, babies don't have those things. 'Walking with you to the mountain,' we'll start on a journey, it is a baby pose. You will find three difficulties; blood pressure, your overeating and etcetera, etcetera...

(The tape, 'Walking up the mountain...' is played)

YB (talks over music): Let the body go. All major organs of the body will adjust to health.

On Saturday, in Santa Fe, (?) Center of the institute of human vitality (?) having its first workshop and this is a new organization that 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 a group of psychologists and other mind body healers have been working on for about the last three months. And this is our inaugural workshop and we'd really like all of you, any of you who can't please come for other part of the day.

This is a very special workshop that's going to address and recognize some of the deep problems that we see all around us, not the, not just the obvious things like homelessness and poverty and the suffering that we all feel but the deep sense of despair that is all around us that no one can deny and this organization has come together to try to put together some social programs, professional training and some very core sense of joy, return the joy to people, for human being to human being in all professions for anybody who works with people, for anyone who is the person, please try and come. It'll be at the (?) Center in Santa Fe and if you don't know where that is, don't ask me because I haven't been there yet but I am sure those people here who know where it is and can 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 is going to be speaking twice; once in the morning and once in the afternoon, we are going to be training people in some self-defense with hypnosis for higher self, defending yourself against the despair that's out there and finding the joy within, it's going to be live music, very special food, so very special people from all around the country are coming in to help, kick this off as well as a blessing from the governor's office who has known about and been behind this all the way. And we are going to be doing a lot more and if you come on Saturday, you can say you were there at the very first one. So, for those of you who missed Woodstock this is your chance, okay. Thank you.

(Students' laughter)

YB: Well, the problem which we have found out in our life and experience is; there is no way but to relay. Aristotle said man is a social animal. Communication is the arts, spice and science of life and you cannot relay, you cannot have a relationship. What cuts you is two things; either your batteries are down or you are a battered person, not a better person, battered person. Time has hit you hard one way the other and you are numb and your nervous.

Psychologically we understand, you can come, we charge you hundred twenty dollars, (?) will go through it. But you know it is week after week, week after week, so doctor Kats, doctor Wayright and other people who are very specialist in many things, we satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. together and decided, let us do something concrete, let us teach people how to have relationship, how to understand life, how to get rid of your loneliness, how you get rid of your sadness, there are lot of things, there are labels, there are challenges you have to meet. We are not saying, just to protect ourself that one day all will be answered but we are saying in one day you will be different, we mean it. If you mean to enjoy your life and do something for yourself, come this Saturday. We don't mean to lay the number which is normal, we will like to mould you into experience that you can have better relationship not with your soul, not with your soul mate but with the whole soul world of yours.

We'll like to tell you how you can change your frequencies by your own self. It's a very rare chance that we'll put you through certain experiences through which we have practice all these years and let you be yourself.

Idea is age of Aquarius has set in, today is ninth, tenth, eleven, whatever day is, eight, eight, Monday, today is Tuesday, Wednesday, eleventh day, there is nothing you can do except you have to know, try to know won't work, I like to know won't work, I may know won't work, you have to know. From where you can learn the knowledge? Going to a library referring to the book, reading the encyclopedia all the time, running around for help? No, you have to create in yourself a transmission, a gear box that you can change yourself, according to the frequency you have to catch up with. You need relationship, better relationship, better understanding, better communication and we like to do that.

One day that all we can afford, one day that all you have to afford. But (?) Santa Fe, you are in Albuquerque, it is one hour drive and try to be there. I will be teaching two techniques; one is how to control through communication and the psychology of your own relay-tion-ship, second I like you to be how to be you against odds. I have two timings on which I will come, doctor Kats will come on a specialty of hypnosis, Dr.Wayright will talk to you about his, (?) he is very experienced how to go through your own psychological biofeedback and assessment, there are other participants who will talk to you on many aspect.

It's a kind of gourmet meal at one rate. We are trying to experiment, we are not going to stop but we would like you to come and encourage these people, so that we may set the new trend of self-healing, self-betterment and self achievement.

Goodnight, thank you and God bless you, see you soon.
