This morning we are going to be talking about foods for health and healing and not just everyday hear about oat bran and people should cut back on meat and their oils and we (?) under the point now where we don't know which way to read a label and what's the chemical and what's not, so this morning we are going to try clear up some of them and I would like to welcome you to the studio, it's nice to have you here again.

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: Very good, what I can do for you?

Dani Lynn: You can do for all of us. Let's talk now foods for healing.

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: Food is a very simple thing. It's a old saying, but it's a right saying "You are what you eat" and eating for the taste, eating for digestion, eating for socialization, eating for convincing people, eating for showoff, eating for being macho, eating is not a one aspect, it has many facets to it. One of the facet is eating to live. To be healthy, have constant energy, suppose you eat any food, which can come out of you in twenty-four hours. It means you will live healthy, you will live long, you will have lot of energy, which food might have used to get digested, that can be given to the body and its activity and you can be convincingly a better person and I should say you will be very nobly aggressive and you will achieve what you otherwise cannot think to achieve. But if you are bloated or you are dizzily sleeping because food got to your head or you are constipated or you do not know what you ate and what was in it and your body chemistry affected terribly, you are in for the day. So food is very effective.

Dani Lynn: You said foods that pass through you by in twenty-four hours. I heard that foods like meat, do not. What do you mean... do you mean foods the heavier foods, do you mean foods that do not...

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: As far as if I get into the controversy of meat than it's whether I am asking to eat meat or not, Thou shall not kill, Thou shall not eat meat and Thou shall not do this and Thou shall... I am not into it.

Dani Lynn: It's just the digestibility...

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 just asking a simple system of science. Eating is tasteful to me and to you at the tip of my tongue, to the end of my tongue. That's it. It gives saliva, it gives juices, it gives me mental satisfaction, it gives me psychological balance and imbalance, it takes away my tension and my stress. Food is not to only just to get into the stomach and give you something. Food is giving you two hundred fifty other things with it. Food is not something what people think food is, it's just like that. You are in stress you eat, you are angry you eat. You are in grief you can't eat. You have done a sex you want to eat. You have done a sex you cannot eat.

With every biological chemistry of the body, the brain, the pituitary orders the stomach to act and react and glandular system in your body is the guardian of your health and welfare. That is the government by itself, independent of everything, and the glands are the guardian of you, your moods, your personality... it's a chemistry, they mix up juices, if thyroid is off, you are terribly off. If your zinc is off, your hair will fall like rain. If you eat something, which doesn't come in twenty-four hours, your colon will be hustling like a wrestler with absolutely no win. So you cannot eat whether it's a meat or not meat. If meat could be eaten, people should not have gone through all the psychological effect, tendering it and doing this to it and doing that to it.

Vegetables some... vegetables are terrible, much worst than meat, if you combine two vegetables wrongly oh my God, it can give you gas, it can give you something like this, it can... if you take a salad, raw salad, just raw salad and without chewing it, eat it. God, you have got horn in your stomach, forget about meat, you got bone, so I mean eating is for lot of other things. But I believe eating should be only for alive, living, eating should be healthy, eating should be to be healthy, for the health, eating for the creativity, senses, temperament, Satvic food, light food, good food, equally digestive food, self-digesting food, will give you very sharp intelligent personality.

Rajvas food will give you very regalism and courageousness and a state of mind in which you can accommodate and you will be very like people who are in sales or people who are in businesses or people... Rajvas food is very balanced, wonderful. Thamas food, when you have a hardcore job, you know digging trenches, running around this, food have been divided five thousand years into three categories. Satvic, Rajvas, and Thamas.

Dani Lynn: And what are they?

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: Satvic is, which is very sophisticated, it makes you a saintly, intellectual, intelligent, intuitive and you are A-one you know A-one?

Dani Lynn: And what are those foods?

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: Like you take rice and yogurt, it's a simple food; let us put it this way. It has protein and carbohydrates. Mix vegetable with it. If you just prepare that Biriyani or that rice dish it is Satvic if you eat with yogurt. But if you put in which saffron, I mean saffron, blended with turmeric and give it a temper of the black pepper, then it is absolutely Rajvas. It will give you a regal, restful kind of situation. But if you put it in that with that red chili, dry red chili then it becomes Thamas. Then it will tear you apart out of your skin. The same rice, and same yogurt, forget everything else. So I mean food does change into difference aspects.

Dani Lynn: Okay, the second one you mentioned becomes hot.

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, one is, one is to be active.

Dani Lynn: Which one?

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: Second one is to active sensually, sexually and accommodatingly. And the first one is to be intuitive, and to be intelligent and to be super above, flying above clouds. Second is going right under the clouds and doing it well. Third is walking on the Earth through the mud of it. All three foods are human, they have been discovered, described, explained, understood by the man.

Dani Lynn: And what is the third kind of food?

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: Third kind of food is hot stuff, hot stuff, what they call it?

Dani Lynn: Spice you mean, just like spicy?

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, this fish, raw fish they eat. That's Thamas.

Dani Lynn: Okay.

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: Now it is so Thamas that when you eat raw fish like sushi they call it... whatever name you want to give it. It puts you right on the spot, the reaction. If you take raw fish and have with it hard liquor, forget it!

Dani Lynn: What does it do to the body?

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: It will circle you around into the blue circle; you will never know what you are doing. The sensitivity of the body at the speed in which you want to achieve and speed at which you can achieve life, will be miles apart. Miles apart! I mean that day you do one thing as experiment, eat a Satvic food, simple saintly food, let me put it in English... and royal food.

Dani Lynn: Raw?

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 I am saying Rajvas food means Royal Food!

Dani Lynn: Oh royal, okay.

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: Rich, and Thamas means hot, pushy, that kind of stuff food and let your wife judge you. Do it one day a week. Not everyday. And come home as a man. Your wife will find she has met three men different in capacity, in caliber, in aptitude, in attitude, in communication, in behavior, love and... you know you... we take it as granted that we are a statue. We are not.

Dani Lynn: So you are saying that food you eat... you eat different foods your state of mind is going to change?

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 yeah, mind, capacity, your sharpness, I mean to say I understand there is a kind of food you can just eat, you will be dizzy to sleep right there on... then you drive a car. You can... food, coffee, coffee is a food.

Dani Lynn: What does it do to your body?

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: Just put you on aeroplane and goes up.

Dani Lynn: Okay, so it wires you.

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: It wires you up and but those wires get around your neck ultimately and hang you with it. Coffee hangover is worst than a heroin turkey. Like tobacco is a food, it's a vegetable, it's green leaves you know dried up and... but it builds in you the impatience, which you can even not understand why? Why on certain things you are itchy? That is what it does to you. And there are people you walk over them they will still smile, they have grit, they have nervous strength, they have patience, they can meet you halfway and still smile. They can tolerate anything you say and still win. Watch their food. Simple, absolutely simple as simple can spell.

Dani Lynn: There is a philosophy around today, which has been around for years but it's called food combining, I am sure you are familiar with it. Shelton's Harvey Diamond's "Fit for Life," that's the book and his whole promise for that diet is do not combine proteins with carbohydrates. That, they do not digest in the body and the body will not assimilate...

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: Let us... let us understand when I overworked and my arteries clogged up and I became a medical situation, and they say I can get angioplasty, I got my angioplasty, I was very good patient you know and one day on the table I died. The medical system failed. So it came to my mind, look, I am a 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. , there is nothing I can do. Then what is the fact? Perhaps I have been sick only to find a way to this sickness is other people (?). I made up a drink, which is very helpful to me, it's my personal thing, I am not giving out even the recipe. But it has totally changed my whole attitude and I made up a tofu sandwich on which I am living.

Dani Lynn: Tofu! You like tofu?

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 take the tofu and I soak it in vinegar at night and next morning I put lemon in it and kind of cook it till the thing and you know it's a very artistic, sophisticated, highly bragging kind of a situation we do with tofu. But question is that tofu is digestible, it doesn't bother, it comes out like hallelujah, it doesn't...

Dani Lynn: It's easy on the body.

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: Otherwise, I mean that kind of tofu you sell, that's fantastic but normal people do not know what tofu is. It's a solid stuff. It takes little time to come out like cheese. It sits and meditates in the beginning of the colon to the end of the colon. It won't come out. I mean cheese; you have to say cheese to come out. No, that's not very nice food.

Dani Lynn: So cheese is hard on the body... I mean that's pretty becoming a...

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: Cheese, butter, oils, and lot of things, which body juices have to double or triple, work it out to bring it out.

Dani Lynn: What's the difference between cheese and yogurt as far as digestion in the body?

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: Aah you have said something. If yogurt as it is mixed with cumin or black jeera, black cumin they call it, or it is taken with a little salt, it is such a wonderful and elevating food but if you take a cheese and put it on a make a sandwich and melt it over and in and you know get it in, it will taste wonderful, my God, my mouth is having water all over... beautiful! But your stomach has to work six times more and your colon has to work sixteen times more and your tract to get this thing out has to pray to Almighty in a very individual way and that kind of stuff then what people do? I have got a gas, take this (?) take this and take that. We have become pill people. We are not people we are pill people. Pipal, there is a tree in India Pipal. It gives all the oxygen all the time. But that's why we have become people. Pill people. And food is the life, food is the digestion, food is the... if you want to be extraordinarily willing and smart, you got to eat right. And there is a very popular saying of mine, herbs heals, God cures and doctor communicates.

Dani Lynn: Okay, so the doctor will communicate, when we come right back we will talk about actually how foods can be used to heal, how do you use herbs to heal,

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: Correct.

(Music)

Dani Lynn: Okay well, you have just joined us at the Dani Lynn Show, and we are here with 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 we are talking about everything from foods to healing and herbs and moment he left the program to take a break on music scene, we were talking abut herbs and how you can actually use herbs for healing and what the specific ones that we are going to get into, 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: Many years when I came, I just told you before you were changing to this music, that there is a very gospel belief that herbs are there to heal, herbs heal, doctor diagnoses and God cures. The problem with herbs is that you don't have to worry about it, you have to worry until you are totally doing a blunder or a mistake, otherwise herbs are just like a part of food. Like mint leaves, like little parsley, which they put on little green on it, actually it's a very powerful digestive system. People don't eat that parsley; you must understand they leave it aside. Therefore when I came to United States we started mixing herbal formulas, which were known to us from the Ayurvedic system five thousand years ago and they have been experimented and used for people. Like people go and sleep and they sometime can't sleep. They need a sleeping pill. All right, I know that's a medicine, that's a medical affair. But there are certain herbs, which can totally soothe you into the lullaby of sleep. Relaxation, it brings you.

Dani Lynn: What kind of herbs?

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, you know this quinine tree, cinchona and from which comes the aspirin, that mixing them with other certain things. So what we do is that we mix the herbs in capsules and we call them by numbers like 7R is for relaxation if you want to, after meals it's just a you know good thing like 96R if you are falling apart, you know, your nose is watering and you are in a bad shape and like 3R for back pain and it has garlic, onion and ginger and other stuff.

Dani Lynn: They are combined Ayurvedically?

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, Ayurveda, yeah, that's what I am saying. Now let's... we have come out with a new formula Energy 101, 108, 111, and these are not just joke, it's just real stuff. Originally the man went into the forest, plucked the herbs himself, dried them, powdered them, had them, lived long years of healthy and productive life. Today because of time problem we just get sick, go to hospital, tell the insurance to pay, blah, blah, blah. But it does has a toll on body, it makes us clumsy. Food and herbs are very specific things for... you want to be happy, but you cannot relish it, chew it, enjoy it and digest happiness if your body is not competent, your glandular system... why we do Yoga? It's very simple thing.

Glandular system is the glands to protect your body, glands to work on your body like liver, like stomach is a gland. Thyroid is a gland, pituitary is a gland, pineal is a gland, and all the stuff. Yoga exercises are exercises, which works on the glandular system and nerve combination. That's why it is very important, not it's very important that now some people say 'why to do Yoga, it's just from the east.' Well, I say east is New York, west is Japan, what is the difference? Question is do you, question today is, do you want to be healthy and you want to do something for it or you don't? And then if you are not healthy natural, people think this is a fad, this health food store is a fad business. No, it is not a fad.

We have learnt from our sickness in the sixties that what junk we were eating it won't work. That's why we... Americans are very sensitive, intelligent and realistic people in certain practical manner you know. So this everybody revolted against the junk food and all what you were... it was just like animals, our mouths are open, we were just hamburger and this... who wanted that you know? People started getting out, restaurants started coming, food started changing, people's attitude started changing. People wanted not to be all the time popping aspirin for headaches. They want to know why? Then they found out that we eat junk. We are junkies. No, no, the word junkie anybody who has heroin habit, you call it junkie, no people are food junkie. People are behavior junkie.

People, they are innocent people. They are like me, you and us. But the fact is the food affects so heavily but so silently the impact of it is impossible. There is no way I understand once that mentally a great man who could have been the President of United States went to give a speech and he ate wrong. And next day on the stage he cried. I don't want to mention his name, I don't want to bring politics to it, but those who remember who was the man who ran for President who cried and lost the race. Check it out!

Dani Lynn: He ate wrong, what does that mean he ate wrong?

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: He didn't eat right, he was not happy, when he was attacked on the debate, he got emotional and he had tears he couldn't present presentable control, upside down.

Dani Lynn: What does eating right really mean? If somebody is listening to this program and says okay I want to eat right, where you can begin?

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: All right, take a bread, hard bread, chew it, let saliva get into it. Take that sweetness and see the difference. Or take a bread, put lot of butter in it and gobble it in and see what that does to you. Bread is the bread. Toast the bread and dry it up, toast means you harden the bread, why you toast the bread? You harden it. You harden it, so it becomes crunchy, your teeth gets the exercise, saliva comes out and it becomes with your saliva, it's something like a Rasayan something to nurture you, to nourish you, to uplift you and your spirit and your whole thing, you don't have a time to move your mouth and you don't want to tell your teeth to do some work. So what you do? Take a toast, put ton of butter on it, if not you are very health conscious, marginal it or something like that, which is a fake kind of health situation and then put it in and gulp, here you go. And then stomach has to provide teeth and saliva and everything else, then colon has to go to the impulsation of it, then it has to go to the traumatization of the inner lining of it, the whole system is out.

There is a emergency in the stomach and the colon, brain doesn't know what to do, body doesn't know what to do and it can pressure on your heart, it can create a gas, it can create this, it can create that, you are miserable then you are popping pills to get out of it, am I clear in my example?

Dani Lynn: So you are saying more than what you are eating just be sensitive to what you are eating as you are eating and...

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 you are eating, how you are eating, how you sit to eat, etiquettes to eat. Normal and (?) and what you cook, whether you put spices and herbs there for taste or for health because herbs are healing.

Dani Lynn: Do you have to be careful with when you are putting certain herbs into your food, people use lot of cayenne pepper and they use (?) kinds of things, and you have to be careful with that is that...

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 yeah, yeah, I wrote a book "Conscious Cookery." And I think it's the biggest combination of all taste, in all walks of life, covered everything, although it is a vegetarian, no doubt about it but it is the healthy thing. I mean to say if you want to be healthy there you go, right there on it. And like let us put it this people who have got blood pressure, people who have lot of trouble and diabetes and all that when I was, 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 luckily sitting here. What that millet diet food we made it up and we made up a book out of it and I become a guinea pig and we experimented. My God, it was normal, behavior was normal, tension was nothing, no sign, no symptom, it was fantastic.

Dani Lynn: So you use millet as a primary grain as opposed to brown rice or basmati.

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, these days as I am after tofu and because I feel that with tofu, I'll not have what you call it "calling hunger," which my body is subjected to sometime because I work hours and hours and hours you know and I listen to people, counsel them, take their negativity and turn them to be positive, it's a very heavy duty job. So you need something, which can sustain you through it and release energy and that's why for that I made that 108R you know. So that once you take it, it will constantly put your body energy into a balance because you have ten trillion cells, which changes themself totally in seventy-two hours so body re-accomplish itself totally, you are every seventy-two hours a new person. So I mean how much cement you put in, how much sand you put in, what kind of bricks you put in every seventy-two hours, that's you ultimately become and then people run to face-lifting and leg lifting and hand lifting and that doesn't work either. That's a absolutely... but if you just keep right, exercise right, chew right, combine things right, take herbs to heal you, check with your doctor if there is anything abnormality work it all out and be effective, your life be much, much happy, enjoyable, fulfilled, accomplished. You will laugh automatically.

Dani Lynn: You talk about mung beans; you have used mung beans in your diet a lot?

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: Pure protein. Self-digestive protein, mung bean and rice is a protein and carbohydrate combination and it is so fast digestive, it gives what body wants and doesn't take from body anything and gets out in time saying 'sir, I am out for your next meal, get ready.' I mean that's the best food in the world. Mung bean is a food for the highly sophisticated people. People who know how to live. Mung bean rice is... I introduced in United States as a dish and one of my student is a surgeon, he is very heavy duty surgeon you know, his hand is... and he cuts like a cloth, does all that. But from last ten years he has only eaten twice mung bean and rice and I am surprised myself, he is a kind of 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. and I asked him one day, I said, "Don't you feel like just eating this and eating that? You make so much money, you are so rich, you are so well-known, your ego doesn't bother you?" He said, "This keeps me alive and keeps me in the best of my spirits and I think I'll only eat if I had to, otherwise this is my food." And do you know it is the cheapest, simplest, the best sophisticated, easiest and the most wonderful food?

Dani Lynn: Mung beans.

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 rice.

Dani Lynn: Mung beans and rice and tofu, we are going to (?) the average American probably I would say has been exposed to mung beans, millet and tofu, very little in their lives.

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: You must understand first also, we are the best granola makers in the United States.

Dani Lynn: Espanola!

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. And the way we make it, it's not just a granola, I have granola! That's not the granola we talk about. We put a proportionate what you call is the almonds and other things for making a balance. It is the balance. You know you have seen those commercial, if you take one total, then twelve of that and twenty of this and it has sugar, it has no sugar, you know these are asking people. No, we make granola with a balanced thing; it gives you all what you need. Not only vitamins, it gives you minerals, not only minerals, it gives you carbohydrate, not only carbohydrate, it gives you also the protein. So question is to give in the morning when you break the fast, breakfast, break the fast, something will cheer you up, which puts smile in you, not that you want to smile.

So basically what we are into a food, which is to us it is a science to know and art to deliver it. That's why we started all over the restaurant you know Golden Temple, (?) conscious cookery everywhere? Now we don't do much, we have one in Los Angeles because it's a hard job, you have to get up early in the morning four O' clock and you have to work till one a.m. next day and round the clock, but you know people are grown up now, they have corporations, they are rich, they are happy, fun, and who wants to do that but when we used to do it people used to be very, very happy for it. Food is a good stuff and herbs is the best thing to know. And to be young the secret lies in eating right. That's what give you the youthfulness at the age of eighteen. Don't lose your eighteen years strength level. Doesn't mater what.

Dani Lynn: When we take a break and when we come back, we will talk about water, and where are you teaching and some of the other things that we can do just to stay healthy and we will take a break, we will come right back on the Dani Lynn Show, we have over 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, stay with us!

(Commercial break)

Dani Lynn: We are here on the program talking about health and healing and all the things that go into it, probably the largest percentage of what's in our body is water and everyday I travel all around America and the world now and everywhere I go, what I have discovered is that it's really hard to get a decent glass of water. Well, now the good water system can change all that for you because I know we all got to great lakes to get fresh water whether it's taking home one of those bottled contraptions or filter systems or whatever it is that you do you know that most of the time especially (?) the Los Angeles you have a problem with trying to get it fresh and a simple better way change is all you have to do is pool water into the reservoir and the impurities are filtered out and it's the cascades into the pitcher and we have a specially activated carbon filter designed to safely prevent the bacteria growth in the water and all you have to really do is put it in your fridge like it sits in perfect and it changes even you can do a test if you want to see how the water affects your teeth. Try doing (?) and then try doing with your regular water and you will see miracle right before your eyes. So the next time you pick up the glass of water remember the better way. There is salt at all your local health food stores, specialty stores and the department stores.

(Music)

Dani Lynn: All right we will be coming into the second kind of our music hour and this is the album the voyage beyond and it is called transparent views.

(Music)

(Music stops)

Dani Lynn: All right, well that was transparent view and it is the voyage beyond here on the Dani Lynn Show we are here with 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. We are talking about food and health and healing and we took a great (?) of water talking about one of the most important things besides herbs and food and of the area you mentioned about the minerals in water...

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, if the body needs the mineral and water doesn't provide it and when you change from one place to another place you think you have the macho permit from (?) God to change it and you are all fit and beautiful? You do not understand, wherever you go and you stay, you have to have a water tested and your body mineral tested by a specialist doctor and...

Side B

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: Just has to give you a report and accordingly you have to change food finding those minerals, which are not in the water, in the vegetable kingdom and otherwise and balancing your food in every city where you live more than three days, you should have a balance sheet in your record, where your water minerals and your food minerals accordingly should adjust to the body minerals. There are three things involved, Father, Son and Holy Ghost. The place you live, the water there and the body mineral you need, they all have to combine and understood and that should make it as a food because water in you is sixty percent of your body. It's not a small thing; it will affect you left and right.

Dani Lynn: For the herbs you are making, are you also using... making minerals with a combinations of minerals and herbs?

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 herbs we make is that what we... we make combination of herbs like commanding herbs. Like, which can command the body to understand and take the stress and direct the system to just go through it, that is what we call the herbal food is about that it gives you what you otherwise have to otherwise sit down and compile... you go through the formula, blueprint, measure it out and do all that or take 108R, like on every four hours and they will automate the whole system. That's you understand?

The idea is in that super power of the combination in the herbs by the natural organic method to add juices to the body along with the glandular juices and make it a combination, which they have to write for you and if there is a deficiency it should be substituted right there and then under the very command of the self and that is also when you do Yoga, and you exercise, you command your glandular system and your secretion in the glandular system and your preparatory mental tissues, which have to work through the pituitary command because that's the crown, gland, commands other glands and that gives you a balance of your thinking, your activity, your day, your feelings, if you feel feverish you don't like to dance. If you feel like dancing you don't want to be feverish.

So that's what I am explaining, the water is a very powerful thing and the minerals in water are very powerful things and people do not have time to go for it but actually in every town you have to do exercise, yogic exercise is exercise for glandular, nervous system and physical... and also you must understand there is a one scientific thing, which people don't understand, skeleton has no screws and bolts, so our body skeleton when goes out of shape... you might have met some people who have one eye up and one eye down. It means the skull is out of place. So basically what I am trying to explain to you is that when the skeleton is off, nervous system become itchy, the muscles become terrified and body needs help. So it needs a extra relaxing situation. That's why we run bourbon on the rock; we think we can just get lost the pain.

But that doesn't work, I think if we have a right water with right minerals, satisfying the need of the body or substituting by the mineral water from the minerals from the vegetable kingdom and count through it and take proper protein and proper carbohydrates and exercise right so our glandular system is stimulated and through the yogic exercise. That's why I have started teaching again, because there was so much pressure that I should give some new formulas and system to get rid of stress and get rid of nervous tension and all that through the Yogic exercises and whatever the ancient science can offer, so I said, I said, "Okay, let me, let me try, let me see what I can help you with" but it works. People who need and understand and experience, they are there. What I am saying is that you are a living organic beautiful being. You got to take care of it.

Dani Lynn: You are teaching at the Yoga Center, we talked about the Yoga Center when you were here last time that you weren't teaching at that time.

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, I'll not; I was resting and running around. But now I teach, I go there Tuesday, it's a very good class, I give them the preamble what I am going to do and then I tell them what the exercise they do, that's called KriyaKriya Literal meaning is "completed action." A Kundalini Yoga Kriya is a sequence of postures and yoga techniques used to produce a particular impact on the psyche, body, or self. The structure of each kriya has been designed to generate, organize, and deliver a particular state or change of state, thereby completing a cycle of effect. These effects have been codified and elaborated by Yogi Bhajan and form the basic tools used in yoga and its therapeutic applications. , they do it. And then I also pre-hand tell them what experience they will have and they have it. You know it is cooked, sold, eaten, digested and nurtured, so that's kind of class I teach. Wednesday morning come if you dare and that's a Yoga Class. That means come to take care of yourself from A to Z and in a good way.

Dani Lynn: (?) at seven in morning, I came to your class about a week ago, the first class, I satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. in the back and at the end when you did the exercise for everyone have their hands out and you have this funny position with your fingers and everybody in the back was like oh God... nobody was really... and then you were saying yeah it hurts and hurts, and it just go to the point where everybody was moaning and groaning and...

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, it is a question is that once we create the impact (?) KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. Kundalini Yoga It is a Raaj Yoga that creates vitality in the body, balance in the mind, and openness to the spirit. It is used by the householder, busy in the world, to create immediate clarity. The fourth Guru in the Sikh tradition, Guru Ram Das, was acknowledged as the greatest Raaj Yogi. (See Raaj Yogi.) He opened this long secret tradition to all.

He opened this long secret tradition to all. is a impact system, it is a system not to built in you or be habitual to it and protect something or do it in future, nothing. It's a situation do it right now, up just now, this minute, it doesn't wait. It is not... what we did that day was to take tension and the inner anger. Ingrown angers of the psychological phenomenon of the personality, which one gets into the childhood and put it back into the subconscious projectively one is worried and weird in his behavior towards all authority and anxieties. Can you believe what I have said? And those exercises took it out and those moaning pain was out of when the body cells and the brain and nervous system was adjusting to it and the body was falling to it, going through it and after that when they relaxed, they were in heavens.

Dani Lynn: Well, that was the point you said do it here, go through your pain here, go through your anger here, go through all this stuff so that when you are out in the world you don't have 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: I teach Yoga like you go into the restroom, you wash your face, you wash your hand, you clean yourself, you ease yourself, come out smiling. That's what kind of Yoga I believe. Not that like in a gym you know you go to those gym and people show the muscle and you look like you are walking into the race of the elephants and that's not... Yoga is a situation, which makes a man to live for that day and the best day and the best life in experience and takes away the handicap, that's why I teach one class a week and I believe that will give them a good week.

Dani Lynn: So Tuesdays at seven fifteen to nine or eight-fifteen something like that.

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: Seven a.m. on Wednesday, that's the Yoga Class, "Dare if you come."

Dani Lynn: Dare if you come, on Thursday?

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. Thursday yeah seven fifteen. One hour.

Dani Lynn: There are many different kinds of Yoga.

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: Twenty-two.

Dani Lynn: Twenty-two and what's the difference, what do you teach?

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 teach KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. Kundalini Yoga It is a Raaj Yoga that creates vitality in the body, balance in the mind, and openness to the spirit. It is used by the householder, busy in the world, to create immediate clarity.

The fourth Guru in the Sikh tradition, Guru Ram Das, was acknowledged as the greatest Raaj Yogi. (See Raaj Yogi.) He opened this long secret tradition to all. , which deals with the energy. There are 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. through which your body is made, that is ether, air, fire, water, Earth, and there are seven chakras in your body through which you project and control, that is the nervous system where the Granthi, headquarter of the nervous system to divert the energy and diagnose, there are twelve glandular systems in your glands, medical science only recognizes nine, so it will take them another twenty-thirty years to go for it, but it's okay I can live with it and then there is a you have seventy-two thousand nerve ending centers and then you have all the circulation and arteries and veins and your whole system. And my idea is you come in and I serve you, tune you, make you feel good, I feel happy because of that and you enjoy it.

Dani Lynn: Some Yogas you have to take years to perfect.

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: Hatha Yoga you perfect one posture, twenty-two years. Raja Yoga you perfect your mental attitude, eighteen years. BhaktiBhakti Self-purification, The devotional form of yoga practiced by a Bhakta. Yoga you take couple lives if they are given a chance. You know each philosophy has a time and timelessness to it. So I believe that it is here and now. That's what I believe and that's why KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. Kundalini Yoga It is a Raaj Yoga that creates vitality in the body, balance in the mind, and openness to the spirit. It is used by the householder, busy in the world, to create immediate clarity.

He opened this long secret tradition to all. hardly anybody teaches and first of all it's not everywhere you can't get a master to teach it. And so philosophy is to avoid it. But I think in last twenty years we have served America, we have let people enjoy it, got rid of drugs habit, got rid of depression, drug, depression and deadly attitude, KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. Kundalini Yoga It is a Raaj Yoga that creates vitality in the body, balance in the mind, and openness to the spirit. It is used by the householder, busy in the world, to create immediate clarity.
