What we can do to make this place beautiful, so if anybody has to run away, he should come directly here. You folks have any suggestions?

Student: (---)

(Students laugh)

YB: Swimming pool will be right there.

Students: Woooooow. Great.

YB: These five acres we are buying to put tennis courts.

Students: Okay... Golf Course.

YB: Golf Course cannot happen because those ten acres we need for the horses, we are getting those pesos and all right, yeah just hold this (?) it will be all right. So it will ruin the whole ranch. So for that we have to pray to get some other place.

Student: Okay.

YB: We have to provide to. Eight thousand dollar is required to put a good tennis court. So at least you need one, two, three, so that's the little money there. Ten thousand you require to put a swimming pool. So it is a fifty thousand dollar trip, we will make it, provided you come sometime and use it.

Student: (---)

YB: Hah!

Student: (---)

YB: We will allow model-A, kind of A frame or dome type of thing if somebody wants to put for their AshramAshram , Aashram A community of practitioners who come together to live conscious, mindful lives. or whatever.

Student: (---)

YB: Very costly. With all the cart we have to go through.

(Dogs bark)

Students: White light.

YB: White light, hey (?) hey.

Student: (---)

YB: Just cover your head and just cover your head and he will be off your back. That day I was drying my hair, he chased me all the way in the room.

(Students laugh)

One thing we understand, you are bare head, that's it. But he doesn't bother the girls, that is strange, only he gets after the men.

Students: (---)

YB: They are very super sensitive energy wise, forgive them. All right now, let us talk about God right. Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey my God. Today I am talking to you about one of the most basic important technique of living. In our life, in the western world, they call it potential. There are three ways to look at it. One is you have it, other is you can create it, you can create to live to your potential and third is you are confused.

(Students laugh)

These are the three stages. When you are confused answer is simple. Your parents mess you up. Lack of direction to use your potential energy for living experience is a mess up gift of parents, it has nothing to do with you. If I say parents are God gift, but they are human tragedy, I will not be wrong. Mostly parents are parents without knowing what a parent is? So this unprepared-ness, mentally socially and spiritually is a human tragedy. Normally the relationship between man and woman is a unguided relationship. Therefore this relationship is interlinked on emotions and unguided relationship is nothing a bunch of emotion, therefore it will not bear good results. They call it wild social emotional relationship. It's not precise. It is not defined, it is not committed. Therefore two human beings don't live for each other, they live at each other. When you live at each other, you will eat up each other. When you live with each other, you will be separated.

So there is only one way when you can live for each other and that is only possible if you have a common guide. So no injustice is done to anybody. If you have a faith that you have a common goal and a common guide and no injustice is possible you can live for each other. Otherwise that is not possible too. The only way is possible when two people are basically committed and both have the same guide. Otherwise, there is a chance of tremendous reaction and for human potential it is also essential there should be a reservoir, a reservation, a place where you can go. For your full potential you require three things. One you need a guide to whom you can share your weaknesses, you need a place where you can live yourself and that's it. Third it is a kind of a social security, when you can know that you can get around, everything and you will make it because you have the support of it. It is known as ideological moral support.

Student: (---)

YB: Yeah relax. A sanctuary, a spiritual social sanctuary kind of, what they call it?

Centry.

Students: Sanctuary.

YB: Sanctuary. That kind of scene. After all what is potential living? Potential living is when you can fearlessly, fearlessly can pursue a simple life and you have not to put up something to prove something. When you have to make it up to prove something, you are not living your potential, you are living under a complex and complex living is a very, what should I say? It's terrible. In our study we have seen, there are two ages, when people get to understand their basic potential. It is between the eighth years to the eighteenth year. Eighth to eighteenth then comes a period of fifty-eight onward. If a person is handicapped between eight and eighteen, he will show symptoms in the adult age and that will be lack of confidence, emotional deficiency, overprotective behavior. And in the old age it will be moodiness, senile behavior and limited communication or over communication.

You will feel some old people either they don't talk to you or they talk so much you don't know what they are talking, it works both way. The base of both ages deficiency is the human insecurity, un-fulfillment, you have a total personality in your subconscious mind and conscious mind you hide lot of things. So therefore what comes to is self lie. Self lie is one of the worst human behaviors and it damages none but the person himself or herself. All mistakes and blunders are based on self lying. First you lie yourself and you convince yourself and then you prepare yourself and then you act. You do all that to yourself. Then the reaction will be to yourself also and at that time you get mad at the world because you are in trouble and everybody is not, first of all who put you in trouble, you yourself. Even you lie to yourself and now you are telling the other one to come and help you. Basically we must prepare ourself to relate to Infinity, our unknown.

Infinity is our unknown and when we relate to our unknown then the known has the guide, then you judge everything on the basis, you judge yourself on the basis of Infinity. How in the long run this will be? That's the question. Therefore no action for potential living should be decided how to skip now. When a person lives on the situation, then he is a traitor to himself or herself. You want to pass the time and time won't let you pass, because time is everywhere and you are at one place. Therefore never skip the time, face it. If you can't face it, get to your guide. If you can't get to your guide go to God, pray but face the time. Skipping is the time is lying to the soul. Because wherever you will go, time will go with you and it will get you. So long you are on Earth, so long you are you.

Remember the basic fundamental, you got to face the time. When you try to skip you think you are all right, but at that very moment you know you are not all right, because you couldn't face it. That is why as a teacher it is your job to allow a student honestly to talk to you and face with the student, so that student in facing the time should not be alone or a friend in facing the time should not be alone or a relation in facing the time should not be alone, you should go with it. Less than that nothing works.

Even when somebody just want to do it something alone and you don't agree, one thing you always can do, you can wait. Don't negate anyone, just wait and see what one goes through, enjoy it. Because the blindness and self lying are such inner habits of ours that when we get on a thought pattern, when we start manipulating things, when we start thinking the way we want to think and we start with our ego feeding the thought pattern, we become blind to all around us and to any other reality. At that time if you are fortunate you have a teacher or a guide to call and look to or discuss and talk he can penetrate because he knows to penetrate and he has the art to penetrate. When you say, 'I want to da, da, da, da' he will say, 'shut up.' What you can do. You are helpless. Or he says, 'okay, it will be okay anyway.' Because you definitely in your life need a neutral person, who should be neutral to your personality and your emotions. If he is involved in your emotions, he can't say right.

That is why even it is a law, common law, if a judge has to decide on a relative, he will transfer the case. He will not judge a case of his own relative, because directly or indirectly he is emotionally involved. That is why potential living is the only right way of living. But it does need a time sacrifice. Sacrifice of temptations and the only answer to get out of a temptation is when the temptation takes over you just ask one question, "What is the effect of it ultimo?" Remember the word, ultimo, in the last of the long run. Because ultimo, you have to quit this Earth and that moment shall decide. If you quit it with grace you will merge into the grace of God and if you won't quit with grace you have lost the game and there are no two opinions about it. Don't try to find your potential each day, it is dangerous, that is why came the religion into way, it was a common, human experiment of finding the human potential and the guideline.

A Saint who does not answer the call for righteousness is a coward and coward die many a death, divine hero dies once and when the divine hero dies once, that is the moment when he starts living forever. One death, is the death of the mortal, other death is the death which makes you immortal. But it is the death which decides it and it is the moment of the death which decides it, all else is talking, we call hotchpotch of sensitivity.

When a person lives in his hotchpotch of sensitivity his mind is a mind of a flirt and mind of flirt has no guidance who knows which way it will go. Flirt mind has no base and base is your Divinity. Therefore flirtation is anti-Divine. Within the time and space you have to find the base, then that base must have its own price. If the price is God, you will get to God. If your price is 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. you will get to God forever. If the price is you then you will bought and sold as a commodity and it will be a tragedy and it's a very cheap and mean way of living. That's why all those great men who have lived up to their individual glory after death are forgotten.

They only got a manure to the Earth through their grave and sometime their skeletons are dug to find out how many years the carbon show up the life, that's all. But the death of the person who has died for his God and 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. is one place which neither humanity through ages can forget or ever has forgotten and that is living forever. Dying for a ultimo cause of Divinity is art of living forever. Fear of death is a un-divine instinct, it's a very earthly, selfish instinct, we all have it, because it is the fear of death which keeps us protected to make us live, but that should not rule us. It should be our instinct, not we should be for that instinct and there is a common story and I will make it as pleasant as possible. If you have heard the real one keep it to yourself, don't announce it, but I will cover it differently.

There was once a kingdom, where there was a beautiful king and a queen. The law of the land was queen could not ever come out without decoration. In other words queen cannot be seen without her Regalia. The punishment of that was the king should be beheaded publicly. Once some people connived and they wanted to kill the king, there was no way the man was perfect. They approached the queen and told her that her husband is going to die on next full Moon, but if on the fourteenth Moon she goes and worship Moon totally naked, he can survive. Now this was a bait. She totally forgot what that will mean, just out of simple sensitivity, that she should not become widow she slipped away on the fourteenth night with the help of the conspirator; with the help of the conspirators to go and do the act. But, before going she had learnt to pray, she did the prayer and she was told never go before your God, 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 altar, not in perfect dress.

Present yourself perfectly so that you can always be blessed great, that is the law. So she dressed up in all the beauty and the glory which queen should be, but unannouncingly she secret doorway she got those guys. When they saw queen in Regalia, one of them asked, that we should hurry up to reach that place because time is very short and you have to pray, therefore we want that to happen and out of God's will it came out of his mouth, he said, "Can't we should go and hurry up because all this what you are wearing around this Regalia, it will take time to get out of it" and the other person who was innocently helping them said, "Hey how can a queen be out of Regalia?"

Other man said, "Don't you know the king will die on the full Moon if she does not get out of the Regalia and pray totally bare" and the other man said, "Well king will die anyway if they find, queen out of Regalia, king has no option but to die." She got on the horse, instead of going with them, turned all the way hundred eighty degree ran back, came to the palace, satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down, she thought over it. She called the king, king came in the chamber, she told the whole story and king just felt on his knees and he said, "Discipline cannot be priced, though the bait was perfect, though the temptation was perfect, but a habit to pray made the Divine to help." That is why when we start in our life, though we want to start and do thing with a great potential, though we are cheating, we are lying, we are doing everything, but still if you pray Divine will not be fool enough to get along with your lies.

And what is a prayer? Prayer is a rare act of individual, in which he directly relates to the Divine. Prayer is the rare act of the individual, where the limited finite individual relates to the infinite Divine, therefore in other words, it is just asking the universal Mother Nature to standby and if as a habit, God and 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 grace is felt all the time, it is prayer all the time. That is why a seeker of God's way whom we call Sikh, he takes Hukum from the 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. GranthGranth Literally: knot: book. in the morning, he takes Hukum, order of the day they call it. Then he ponders over it and the light of that what comes through then he meditates whole day. That is they call it, living in the word of the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. , don't misunderstand age, you will find hundred year old man telling lie and ten year old boy dying for the truth. It's a matter of habit. It is as good a habit to lie, as good a habit to pray, choice is yours. You can choose any standard for your life, you want to die like an animal, you want to die never, is your choice.

Whenever the human mind, limits himself in the ultimo with the Earth, ultimo with the Earth, he is doing a wonderful spiritual blunder. Ultimo Earth is nothing but a mortal trap. Success on the Earth is not a guarantee that ether is with you, but success in the etherical living of you is a guarantee that Earth will go with you. Therefore always decide, when you decide of your potential and action, what is the ultimo Infinity in it. Somebody once asked me a very simple question. "Yogiji, you have all these jewelry and you wear it, why?"

I said, "It's great."

"But why it is great for you?'

I said, "We are very poor people, we are young kids, we are a young religion, we are young people. We are getting our scene together and we all want to be rich but, we are afraid to say it."

In the inner mind and in the inner surface I know, they all want to be rich. So they should not be afraid to be rich, I pretend as very rich and this is one way to show richness, otherwise it is quite heavy to wear those rings and first job I come back home is to remove that right away, even SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. SimranSimran A deep meditative process in which the naam of the Infinite is remembered and dwelled in without conscious effort. is not there, then means it's going to fall on the ground.

(Students laugh)

That makes no difference. But if I tell you, live rich, then it becomes a direction. But if I show you to live rich, you will inspire for it. We know each woman needs a jewelry, we know this is a habit, it is a basic weakness. It is where she wants to relate to Infinity and her relation of Infinity is either through children or thorough jewelry or through homes, blah, blah, blah this whole thing, because she has sixteen time more power Earth element, than anybody else can think of. She is thirty-two times more etherical. So there is a huge crisscross in her, before they could bug their husbands, we said all right, give them little diamond Adi Shaktis, so that at least instead of calling their first name, they can call them Singh Sahibji, so that they may remember all the time who the hell they are; it won't help much. But if you call a Singh a Singh, then he at least will never be a foxy. That is one way to straighten the husband. Call him with super adjectives in his religious name, it will be very hard for him to goof, because, there is a reminder right on the spot.

We know we need a jewelry, why not to make it as a religious symbol, very decorative and authentic. Always turn your weakness to support your grace. Everybody is weak, everybody has weakness, don't misunderstand that part. But you can turn your weaknesses into the strength and you know where comes the strength when you are weak, when you start fighting your weakness. That much it takes. Locate the weakness start fighting it, it will run away. When you don't fight it, it will master you and it will take you along with it, because it is totally western what I am saying to you, meet the enemy halfway, you remember that.

Student: (---)

YB: Enemy.

Student: (---)

YB: Weakness is the first thing to be fought.

There was a person once, he was very afraid, that he cannot wear a undershirt. Almost it was a phobia. Undershirt, why people wear it? Undershirt.

(Students laugh)

Crazy guy. So one day I called him, I said, "Hey, you see what is lying down there." There was a box. I said, "Tear it." It's a gift. Gift was undershirt.

He said, "What should I do with your gift?"

I said, "Wear it."

Now he was tied in such a situation, he couldn't say no. So he took his shirt off and put that, I could see him wearing like as he going through to be guillotined, totally stiff, totally uptight; he did a greatest favor to me when he put that undershirt. When he put that undershirt, he wore it, he wore the shirt, he looked all right; I said, "Are you dead?"

He said, "No."

I said, "What happened?"

He said, "Well, it doesn't look good."

I said, "Just feel it."

For few days it has a purpose. Undershirt has a purpose to create a pocket of air around your chest area and around your abdomen, around your stomach. It used to be of thick cotton, ill-luck would have it, we became thin and thin and we have become a net now and God knows what will be tomorrow?

Side-B

Digestive system very strong and in ancient time, the ancient man understood the whole formula, also the, under the circumstances, the ancient man knew how to tie a wide belt around his tummy, Cummerbund. Cummerbund was for stomach area as well as the lower back, there is just little what they call it, disc come out more faster than anything else. Even when it became a fashion, the pant was supposed to have a belt. Even in certain families of the rulers today, you can find, they tie a Cummerbund under all clothes. Cummerbund is one of the secret weapons of the man or the woman to live long, healthy. Cummerbund is a piece of cotton cloth almost four to six inches wide, its length is five to seven yards; it goes round and round from the fourth lower vertebra to the rib area. It is never too tight and never loose at all. Belt is the ultimate modernization of Cummerbund. Yes dear?

Student: (---)

YB: What I am talking is all what, I explained how it's helpful first, I told Cummerbund later. You know this area this disc come out and your this caecal valve can cause wind pressure anytime and can stop the digestive system. It can also get all the refuge which has gone away back to the colon. But if this area is properly wrapped and it is always in the size, anytime, anything which will produce the gas, it has two outlets, down and up. Digestive system will never be bothered. Wind lock can always bother your digestive system, this is one fundamental area to get out of it and you can wear it right under your clothes, on the undershirt, nobody will ever know that you are wearing it, except somebody wants you put a fist on that area and may find God, there is something.

Student: (---)

YB: Oh that was for the dresses honey and for giving a shape. Purpose was same, but that was too tight and it's not cotton, it's nylon, it doesn't allow the air pocket. Nylon is a airproof watertight compartment nothing gets out, nothing get in. In your super creativity of your potential you must not forget to sleep east and west, you all have forgotten. That is one mistake, which will take you through the tube. Any person who sleeps north and south loses his creative energy, almost ends up as a impotent man in physical level, senile in mental level, and destitute in spiritual level. It was essential for Monks to sleep south and north, because they were acquired to be idiots.

(Student laugh)

Yes, that's true. A Monk is supposed to be an idiot, he should exactly carry what he is told to carry, he must not have his brain. That's why they shave of their head. Shaving the head was the sign of a slave, so all Monks were to be shaven and they were just spiritual destitute, they depend just on that, message. That is why it was made possible to dishonor them by cutting their hair. Cutting the hair on the head, on your crown is nothing but to dishonor yourself. An ancient man through all his knowledge knew it. But they became so many that it became a fashion and the barbers took over. For your better potential living you must not ever sleep on a soft bed.

I explained it to you, you know scientifically what a soft bed does, all your day your spine goes in different jerks and it is never straight and never right. When at night you relax and you go in a deep sleep, Sukoopat where body is totally forgotten and man totally becomes unaware, that is the time when all the skeleton can readjust itself automatically. Therefore if the base is straight and hard spine adjust itself most quickly. If it is a soft bed, then it is a helplessness.

Student: (---)

YB: Huh!

Student: (----)

YB: If you have a pillow which can be equal to the arm, help to cover this distance between the shoulder and the neck it is all right, it is too mush, it is terrible. Pillow is only helpful when you sleep on the side, because normally a man sleeps on the side. Therefore pillow is helpful. For digestive system if you want to improve your digestive system start sleeping on the belly to begin with. When you sleep on belly, it creates lots of gastric juices and improve digestive system.

Student: (---)

YB: Huh!

Student: (---)

YB: No, never who told you that?

Student: (----)

YB: There is a word, they call it hang him.

(Students laugh)

There is a certain system to sleep and sleeping on your belly is one of the required necessities. To avoid the creation of stones in your bladder and in your kidneys and in your urinary system, you should always never urinate direct. You must stop urining while urining.

Student: (---)

YB: It gives water a pushback through the certain area and it is kind of help in many ways. It does not allow the deposit to settle, though the muscular system has a terrible control, but also this gives a muscular movement. All the urinary muscular system is helped. It is very simple for you to forget it, but not cleaning the monkey gland is inviting the blindness much earlier, stomach ulcers much earlier, deafness much earlier, ENT, eyes, ear and throat and nervous system, they all can be all right, if you brush your root of the tongue and let these two monkey glands throw every day's quota of mucous out.

Now nature created this mucous belt, so that all the virus and germ can get stuck there and can enjoy their time and at night when the mouth is closed, these bacteria's and these germs they grow quite rapidly and up to Infinity. Early in the morning, if instead of a hot cup of tea to put that whole thing down in the stomach, you brush the root of your tongue and throw it out, you have saved a day and whenever you will brush the root of the tongue you will be surprised, your eyes will water, so the eye water level will be all right, your sight will be all right for a long, longtime and whenever you will brush the root of the tongue, there will be a one situation, the wind from the stomach will come out, it will improve your digestive system and best thing is to teach your children, all the do's and don'ts and the best way to teach them is do yourself in their presence and they will ask, "What you are doing mom?" And just say, "I am getting better and better."

(Students laugh)

"What is it?"

"It is a way to get better and better."

"Can I do it?"

"Yeah you can try, if you like." Don't push it, don't sell it.

Kids are monkey, they follow what they see. So you can example yourself and you can teach your kid the do's and the don'ts.

Student: (---)

YB: Huh!

Student: (----)

YB: Early in the morning is a must and at night is the best.

Student: (----)

YB: Now couple of time. Now if you have eaten food, if you do it all your food will also come with that.

(Students laugh)

Student: (---)

YB: When you sleep on your mouth open, your sinuses are not in shape.

Student: (---)

YB: Yeah, oh that is what under the,

Student: (----)

YB: No, no. Oh when that thing is just irritated, you have (?), you will find those two little marbles coming out with lot of stuff.

Student: (---)

YB: Try to clean the sinuses before you go to bed. Simple way is, I do it in a very simple way, I put little water, blow it up, clean it up, go, sleep.

Student: (----)

YB: Huh, Huh! You know I can drink a glass of water through nose, better than the mouth.

(Students laugh)

No. You want to see me doing it.

Students: Yeah!

(Students laugh)

YB: I can make, you do it. All right if there are some sturdy girls we can put you through Sanklparchalat, but we took a sample, all right we will get you on that.

(Students laugh)

Let us do it tomorrow, right. Tomorrow we will do it with you and with you.

Student: (------)

YB: No, no, no. That guy. One male, one female. All right get a bucket of tomorrow, put a salt in it, tomorrow and we will just ask them to go through those exercise and go to bathroom. See how many buckets of water comes through them. Subject to the condition if there is Sunshine. What is tomorrow day?

Students: Saturday.

YB: Friday, then Saturday I can fix them, that's okay.

(Students laugh)

Because so much comes out of it, the navel pointsNavel Point The sensitive area of the body near the umbilicus that accumulates and stores life force. It is the reserve energy from this area that initiates the flow of the Kundalini energy from the base of the spine. If the navel area is strong, your vital force and health are also strong. become like a bell, so that needs a fixation, that is why I all the summer solstices I try it and sometime it rains and sometime it is so cloudy that it is not possible, we never get a chance, but we can try now.

Student: (----)

YB: Huh!

Student: (----)

YB: Why you need the Sun? What else you need?

(Student laughs)

Student: (----)

YB: No, you can't do it at any other weather, but a clear Sunny day, because the body needs them. SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. SimranSimran A deep meditative process in which the naam of the Infinite is remembered and dwelled in without conscious effort. , car has come, if you inspect it... remember and forget not, that during the day if you tie your hair up and you take a Turban on and you are very wonderful that does not substitute for one thing, you have to tie them backward at night.

Student: (----)

YB: Down.

(Students laugh)

Some of you have developed a very serious habit. I have seen one girl, got up in the morning and Turban was still on.

(Students laugh)

I couldn't believe it and that is too much of the Sikh Sikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. DharmaSikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. Dharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. .

(Students laugh)

Student: (----)

YB: So, ask him to polish it as a punishment.

(Student: (---)

YB: I will pick the tab, he should at least polish. Well if you really want to know, you should do them at night down and if won't facts is very simple, they will get down automatically, somehow and if still you manage to do that it can cause you a headache sometime.

Students: (-----)

YB: Yeah parading at night is one of the most wonderful way to take care of your most powerful energy antenna. People who have menstruation trouble, there is a shortage of a metal, it can be zinc, it can be calcium, it can be magnesium, it can be copper, mostly it is copper, those kind of metals when they are not in body, you have a messed up menstruation.

When you soak it in milk, then after that time take it out from the milk;

Student: (----)

YB: Don't discuss it.

(Students laugh)

Yes it will be little bit sour and I can vouch for it. That is where you create the bacteria. But if you say sour everybody will freak out, say it is divine. So, then you fry it on a low fire, it is required that the fire should be low. It's the most difficult sauté business. Low fire, heavy fire, you can fry right away, but it is low fire frying, it's very difficult, but you got to do that way and then you brown it, not too much, just subtle browning, just, just right. When you have done that way, now you will take the following. You will take a pound of almond nuts, a pound of walnuts, walnut nuts

(Students laugh)

That's what you say.

Students: Walnuts.

YB: Walnuts. I mean it's the inner thing, not the shells outside.

If you will not stuff it properly it will burst up like a bomb and really it will burn out everything around you, don't misunderstand me. It has to be very properly packed and then sealed and then take a big pot and roll those in for a deep fry and when you roll that in for a deep fry, cover it, sometime it popup with all the gheeGhee Clarified butter. and everything and kitchen the whole thing goes to wall.
