What do you want to teach it tonight?

Student: (?) conscious breathing.

YB: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I am going to surprise you what I am going to say and I know I will not be forgiven for this being a religious man, they think I am a religious. And sometime they say I am head of the religion blah, blah, blah but they forget, I am a man too.

Now the reality is, every religion has messed up all the way and I have mess you up, it is the scheme, it is a part of that game. I realize that myself being a religious man, where is the problem? I got kind of sick that there is a rabbi, there is a minister, there is a bishop, there is a cardinal, there are 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. that you can't even count them, there are swamiSwami Master. that you cannot write their names. Okay? There are Temples, there are Gurdwaras, there are Churches. Safely speaking, one-tenth of the wealth belong to one religion or the other and one, eighty percent of the sacrifices has been made in the name of religion. Sixty percent wars which have killed us as human being has been fought in the name of God and religion and what a beautiful religion, Iran is Moslem, Iraq is Moslem, one Allah and they are killing each other like they don't exist. Where is the wrong? It's not all right. Yes, there is one God, we all worship. That's what moral majority believes right.

We have not yet decided whether black is really a man or not and blacks have not decided whether this white is really a human or not. I am telling you, both work the same way and Chinese are the brown that race, which has teeny-weeny eyes and flat nose, they have not decided whether you guys exist or not. For them all Africans and all European are the crazy cut of the God, if you listen to their jokes and what they say between themself, you'll freak out. They say we found the gunpowder and we gave it to the European so they can kill each other, that's what they say. And if you talk to them, that European are excellent people, they say, 'yeah, yeah, yeah, they are excellent garbage,' that's the words they use.

Why so? What is the main reason today as human we have with all the thousands of year knowledge with all the avatars, with all the teacher, with all the classic and what is wrong with God Almighty also, that He has to send avatar and messenger and His son and God knows what, to just straighten out His own people which He created in His own image.

Have you ever thought of it? I did spend some time. If you do not invite to somebody to a party by mistake, because it's a private, the person leaves a religion, makes the husband to leave, made the children to leave, make everything, ego is hurt. Now that is how religion is. If Church minister doesn't give you flower in the end, when you come out, then you go to second, you forget about this, forget about that, that's how people treat religion, now religion treats people also, very funny way because religion needs money.

Dough, who has the dough, religion, Church has money? No, you are the money, Church wants it. So they are going to tell you, there is going to be hell, there is going to be this, this, that, if you wish all right, pay for it, the hell will turn into heaven. It has been going on, we can discuss it, we can go deep into it, we can side track it but the fact is, there is only one person which is exploitable and that is a householder. Nobody else has the dough, nobody else has the strength and nobody else means anything. That's 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. understood. He understood the government, the priest, the animals, the birds, the world at large live off one thing and householder, Grihastashram, Maha ashramAshram , Aashram A community of practitioners who come together to live conscious, mindful lives. , devi dev pujetam.

The life of a householder is so great and so bountiful and so beautiful, the angels worship it. That's what he told his disciples, those who followed him at that time and he sang to them the glory of the woman, the glory of the relationship, glory of the love, the trust, the mutuality and understanding and all these spiritual people were authentically celibate and put all the ashes on their body and ran into the jungles, he told them they are selfish, they are all doing for themself, they are not doing anything, they are walking away from the world, they are crazy. He told the man, "Look how much money you are spending to make the statue of God out of stone and you are going to put garlands to it, you are going to worship it, you are going to do everything. That's just the satisfaction of your ego because you are creating a God with your own hands, you are not going to reach God."

He told the Mosque and the Church, "You think God is infinite and you have found it nobody else, you are so fanatics that you will never find what reality is." He talked and talked and talked and this talk from heart to heart and from scripture to scriptures is with us. But question today is not what he said, question is where is the wrong and it's a very simple fact, you, you the Id, the personality should relate to your soul and your soul should relate to God but instead of that, you want to relate to God direct and there is never going to be away, it's going to happen. Though the soul is part you and human the ego is part you and God in you is part you but the fact is that soul is the part of God and it is total of you. So long you have a soul in you, the pranic energy comes to you, that the soul departs, this structure, the beautiful structure with oil of olay and all that stuff, dies.

'Lakta kya ke mundre, lakta kya ke har.'

The million dollar worth of jewelry and the stone and the decorations and the beautiful and all kind of massages and juices, whatever you want to do to yourself, within three days you stink so much, nobody can keep you in the very house, which you owned by law of the city. So basically you want to reach God. That's why anybody who tells me, God is with me, I know the guy is crazy, I immediately know that the person has freaked out and the train has derailed. Moment person tells me, God is with me, I know the danger because I can read through the words because nobody has ever read... Sometime you say, but what is 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. says, through 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. only,

'Jeso chanda ugve, sooraj chade hazaar.'

If hundreds of moons are there and thousands of suns are there.

'Yeh thay chanan hondeya, 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. binn ghor andhaar.'

With all that light, without 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. there is darkness, you don't understand it, 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. ? What is 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. , Pavan Pavan Guru Literally, the "breath of the guru." It is the transformative wisdom that is embedded in the patterns of breath, especially those patterns generated in the expression of naad in sound or mantra.

Guru 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. , pranas are 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. , why pranas are 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. ? Because soul's existence is a guarantee, it's a collateral for the pranaPraana , Prana The universal life force that gives motion. It is the breath in air. It is the subtle breath of the purusha as it vibrates with a psychophysical energy or presence. Praana regulates the modes and moods of the mind. , that's why it is 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 how can this limited man can reach the Infinity because if the chakras are balanced, the ecstasy is no further than within the reach. How far away the God is and how near the God is, it depends on your balance. You want a message, it depends upon your adjustment of your receiving set at what frequency and what adjustment you can receive the message. Message is always there, whether your set can receive the frequency or not that is the question to decide and if your bulbs or your wires or your knobs or your receiving units are not accurately accurate, you can't hear. So message is faraway from you but if your message can be set on the frequency you hear like anything. You have a telephone in the house, you call the zero, they say, I give you repair number, you call the repair number, they will say, we will send a man out eleven o'clock tomorrow, fix it up. What about up to eleven o'clock? He say, adios, we do not know even where defect is. You are no different than that.

Do you consciously know your soul or not, that is the game. Do you know consciously God or not, that is not the game. Sometime for a fashion you say, I know the God, sometime you get mad at somebody, you say, forget about you, I am going to find God myself, as God is an ice-cream and you can read the map to reach it. It will be a individual foolishness, if you don't understand today that God and His secrets are all maps and His direction, its frequencies and possibilities are all contain in your own soul, which is all within you. How you can relate to your soul? Through your head? No. Through your heart? No. Through you? No. Through 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. ? Yes. If you are intelligent enough to balance yourself. If you are conscious enough that the other person who is talking to you, from one chakraChakra , Chaakra The word connotes a wheel in action. It usually refers to the seven primary energy centers in the aura that align along the spine from its base to the top of the skull. Each chakra is a center of consciousness with a set of values, concerns, and powers of action associated with it. his frequency is coming and as you are talking to the other person, what chakraChakra , Chaakra The word connotes a wheel in action. It usually refers to the seven primary energy centers in the aura that align along the spine from its base to the top of the skull. Each chakra is a center of consciousness with a set of values, concerns, and powers of action associated with it. you are at frequency. If you have a conscious availability of knowing your own frequency through your own chakras, you are on the path.

You will live because 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. wants you to live, pranic energy, pavan is given to you to live. Why this pranic energy was given to you? Because you were created in the image of God and God wants you from image to reality. That's why, all the religions were created to mobilize man's desire, the very secret desire, the very sacred desire to relate to God and listen to the, 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. , the Anhad, the frequency to see the ecstasy and bliss and experience, that's the real urge. That's the real go. That's what you always relate to and there is nothing wrong to it. But connections are wrong.

Nobody wants to go into the soul. You know, there is very funny thing, I have a telephone, big, mapped it up in one way or the other. So I pick up the number, press it, call, instead of ringing on the other side, it said, breee... Like that. Because this line is bad, I put the other line, I did the same thing, it said, breee... So I just put my p-line went to the (?), what is going on here, I can't call outside at all. They said, "You can't."

I said, "What happen?"

"We have programmed it."

I said, "What is wrong with that program code?" "What I have to do?"

They said, "Well, you have your code number and when you hear that, do you hear that breee..."

I said, "Yeah."

He said, "After that you press the code number, then your call will go through."

I said, "If I don't press it?"

I said, "Then you are going to hear breee... Then it will disconnect."

That's what happened to spiritual student also. They try hard, they connect some saying and after that hear breee... And they do not know what to do and that is called 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. mantraMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind. Tra-ng is the wave or movement of the mind.

Recited correctly a mantra will activate areas of the nervous system and brain and allow you to shift your state and the perceptual vision or energetic ability associated with it. .

Can you believe that? Na, narak sade, he won't even burn in the hell. You think it is good? That means in hell is not for you, now what else is? The game as far as you know religious is, heaven and hell. Heaven you can't go, hell you can't reach, then where you can go. Then you will hang in, between here in magnetic field as a ghost. Inverted, self-contained psyche which cannot release itself from the magnetic field where our aeroplane can penetrate through, can you believe? Human sitting in the aeroplane with a certain force can penetrate through that magnetic field, you see, you see, hear that big bong and sometime your window shatters and you hear a sound, that's where you penetrate through the magnetic field, you can't go through that.

That happen to 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 Amar Das Third Guru of the Sikhs. Amar DasGuru Amar Das Third Guru of the Sikhs. . When GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru.

And one day after coming from Ganges and in very satisfaction manner he met a SadhuSadhu A holy man. , a saintly man and he told him, he said, "I shall be privileged to invite you to my house to have lunch with me."

Hesitatingly the gentleman agreed, he said, "Okay, I will go, eat." When he satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down there, the food was served, the guy was hungry, just understand, no misunderstanding, I am telling you what spirituality is.

Spirituality is when there is a power, force and temptation, power, force and temptation, need and understanding, time and space at that moment. If your consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself.

So at that moment, he said, "Do the prayer."

He said, "No, you do the prayer."

He said, "I am not your 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 am your guest.

Hah, hah, he looked around, he said, "I don't have a 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 don't have a 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. mantarAntar , Bantar , Jantar , Mantar , Tantar , Patantar , Sotantar These describe the sequence of creative expression from inner essence to full manifestation. Antar is the inner essence and being. It is before form. Each essence has an associated structure in time and space, a dimension to it, bantar. This structure is fulfilled by an appropriate matching set of qualities, jantar, which has a unique sound resonance, mantar, and a distinct visual form, yantar. This form and energy interrelate to the universe, tantar, creating a projection and track as it threads through time and space, patantar, until finally achieving its liberated form, beyond time and space, sotantar. This form creates a neutral point that ties together many of the polarities inherent in Prakirti to embed and express the essence of the antar in creation. ."

He said, "Okay please, have your food and have your own, good-bye." He got up, he left.

Amar Das ran after him, "Hey, what is wrong with me? You are a man of God."

He said, "Oh, oh, oh, I am a man of God but you are a mantraMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind. Tra-ng is the wave or movement of the mind.

If I don't tell you what you are, who is going to tell you, I am telling you as a man of God, you are nothing and it's a sin to eat at your house. You brought me in as a holy man and a man of God."

He said, "That is true."

I said, "That's what I have to do my job, I can't eat in your place."

He said, "Are you not hungry?"

He said, "Terrible, I am hungry, I have not eaten from one week."

"Is the food wrong?"

He said, "The most beautiful delicious, seven vegetables, three puddings, bread, everything, milk, honey, everything."

He said, "Have I offended you?"

He said, "Not at all, you are the most beautiful person, I love you.

He said, "It is a radio station or it's a existence or it is a psyche which has no code of frequency, you don't have your code number as they told me, you can't make a call because you don't have your code, if you know your code, you call, it will connect."

He asked that daughter, "Whose scripture you are reading, it was very celestial."

That's where disciple merges with the teacher. Amalgamation. It becomes one. That is the theory of one God, all those who believe in one God, must amalgamate themself in one God but because the ego is not amalgamated the black is still black, yellow is yellow, brown is brown, Moslem of Iraq and Moslem of Iran are two Moslems. Fighting for what rights?

I was joking today reading that on the Easter the President Marcos came out and he said, "I am still President."

I laughed, I said, "Nobody cares for Philippines, everybody care for the American dough, who stole where?"

He is still the President, can you believe that?

And I said to myself, "What is the difference, we are all still the human."

Without light, without understanding, without relating to our soul, without... We are losing this trip, what? I have become this, I have become this, I have, look...

You know in Canada once I went to somebody's house, he was very beautiful to me, great friend of mine. He said, "Please come to my house, you are man of God, please, I want your lotus feet and then whole thing."

I said, "But this is too surplus and adjective but I want to get rid of this whole nonsense, I will go."

You know, there was no way, with some people you have no argument and I said, "All right, I am going to such and such place, oh why won't take a detour, go to his house, be there for few minutes and bless him and go on our job."

So I went there. First you know, routine is welcome, welcome was pretty large welcome, huge, he has already invited every friend he could. I said, "O my God, it's going to be here what GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. or what?"

But anyway, I said, "What he has a faith, he wants me, he loves me, let me stay here why should I bother." We stayed there and then he wanted me to have a tour of the house, then I have tour of the house.

Then he said, "I wanted to show you something special."

I said, "What is that?"

Then he showed me a powder room, it was thirty foot long, eight foot wide, nobody has that kind of powder room because nobody is that insane.

(Students' laughter)

After looking that powder room and everything, I just ask the question, I said, "Where is 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 room?"

He said, "What do you mean 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 room?"

I said, "In this house, where is 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 room?"

He said, "We have not yet decided it."

I said, "You have decided to invite me, you have decided to invite everybody and there is not yet a 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. room?" I said, "Okay, let's shake hand, thank you, I will see you."

"But sir, we have cooked food."

I said, "I was very hungry when I came," I said, "Now I feel like vomiting so, let me go. Don't interfere with me."

He said, "Why?"

I said, "Man, you don't know me, I love 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 anything I do, can install in anybody's heart 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 will do it. But here you have slapped my face, you have invited me with so much love, told me so good and showed me a powder room, thirty feet long, eight feet wide, nobody in the world has it. And if your wife is so tall and long that she powders all the way walking in the sense, she has to do an exercise and a medicals situation and you don't have a 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 room?"

He said, "Please, please, which room you think should 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. room?"

I said, "Master bedroom."

What that moves they say it is still. What is solid, they say it is lost. You know when milk, you heat it, it will become solid kova. They say it is lost, kova means lost. Range kho narange kaye. The orange has a color, they say it is without color. When Kabir saw all this, he wept. Kabir says in his own words, because we always present non-reality as a reality. We say God is everywhere, then say give me twenty-five dollars, I will show you a path to find out God and if you don't believe and work with me on individual basis, take my book, what a commission way to live. You think God is that nuts and that in-intelligent and insensitive that He can get into your business?

No my friends, if you have come tonight, don't come tomorrow, if you are not awakened to 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. then you can never find God, doesn't matter who promise you at what extent. You will only find God, when you start finding within you that you have a soul and that is your part God.

When you shall relate to the soul, God shall relate to you, that is the law and that is unchangeable law and when you relate to your soul, you will see your soul in your enemies, then you won't be corrupt. When you won't be corrupt, you will be correct. Then you shall speak the truth, learn it or understand it, then you will become kind and compassionate and then you will understand what GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru.

'Namey Da hommey Naal Virodh Hai.'

Ego has definite because ego limits you and God is infinite. Ego and the name of God at are war.

'Na dho hai besakath thai.'

Both don't live in one place. You can serve your ego or you can serve your God, if you serve your soul, you will be as vast as God is. Then you won't say, I, I, my, my, mine, mine, mine, then you will start saying, thou, thou, thou, thou.

Lot of people asking me, "Well, sir, I have been a Sikh, I have been, I don't find peace." You don't find peace because you have not dedicated your ego to God.

It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. GranthGranth Literally: knot: book. , we bow our head, we give it to God. It's simple way. It is in the surrender, resurrection is achieved. You mean to Jesus Christ would have resurrected, are you kidding? No, no, no, he got to be nailed on that cross, he was not Christ. No, no, no, he was Jesu, the carpenter, worse than that the thief. When the decision came, let the thief go or let the Jesus go, Jesu go. They said, "let the thief go, hang this guy." What do you think of that?

Justice by the your own peers, right, hah? Jury, there was a jury, the Roman governor called loud. He said, "O you Jews, O Israel, here is this one of you, here is this guy, I prefer to hang that man because he has done a lot of crimes against the state, he has hit the local police." And you know offense against peace officer is greater than the offence against ordinary man, though the ordinary man pays for the peace officer, you understand what I am saying? They said, "No, no, this Jesu, hang him and that guy, let go." Isn't not a fact known to all of us? And they hung him and they didn't hung him, didn't tie him with ropes, they nailed him, so he maybe badly hurt and they told him, "Hey you, king of the Jews whose father has many mansion," and they abused him, why should I repeat all those abuses, they are very ugly and they told him, "Hey, you walk on the water, right, now you fly in the air." They made mock at him, they put a thorn, throne on his head, they drag him through the street.

Isn't that's all this week was about, right? Look at that guy, that carpenter, he looked to the heavens, where his 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. was and he said, "Father forgive them, they don't know what they are doing." Well, if this cup pass, fine, if not, okay. That's how today half, billion and a half people and one-fourth of the wealth of the world is held in the name of that carpenter alone. You understand?

Correct your psyche, balance yourself and in the face of temptation relate to your soul.

Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. .

Each body has its own quality, function, and realm of action. and you are a material evidence in on the road of ecstasy. If your gas, water and battery, will go out of focus, you will sit and rot, have every car which you see, junked out in New York highways. You know what happens to those car?
