(Students sing)

(Students stop singing)

YB: Oh well I never wanted to come. But I thought, just to justify the bucks, you know.

(Students laugh)

You guys paid to 3HO foundation, I should be here.

Ah, subject is very clear and very simple. Subject heading is, 'confused corruption and communication.' Actually, to be very honest, we are not even corrupt, we are confused and corrupt.

(Student laughs)

And don't misunderstand that it's a A or it is B or it is Z. Normally, it has been found out by statistics that ninety people out of hundred are corrupt and confused. They are confused, therefore they are corrupt; they are corrupt, therefore they are confused. And those ten remaining are those who do not know how to communicate.

(Students laugh)

Got the answer? Do you really understand what I have said? Out of every hundred people, ninety people are either corrupt and confused, or they are confused, therefore corrupt. And ten people are those, whom we call them official mumps. You know these mumps they swell up, these...

Students: Mumps.

YB: These are called mumps.

Student: Yeah.

YB: They, when they swell up, to a male, when he's adult, he becomes impotent. Per se and there's no treatment for it. So, officially in the scripture they are called mumps. In the medical science there maybe some different name for them.

Student: (------)

YB: Now, in this world of ours, spiritual strength gives you power of communication. Spiritual strength gives you power of communication and give you positive power of communication. And if you are creative, you are positive. If you are non-creative, then you are negative. One, if a person is obnoxious in communication, obnoxious, that does not mean that, that person is obnoxious to you. The fact is, that person has no self-respect.

Obnoxiousness in communication is a symptom of the disease, what is called as self-insult. And majority of the people are very self-insulting, therefore, they want to talk to you in a very obnoxious language and shall use words to provoke you. In the sense, either you should beat them up, throw them out, or abuse them at least. The least favor you can do is to abuse them. And you will ask, 'why people want that?' And nobody can commit a mistake. Most of the people commit mistakes intentionally.

I tell you the category of this intentional mistake committers. They will commit a mistake and they will let you know there is a mistake. So, what you can do, yell and scream at them? Yeah, this is what they want. There are over million process a man uses and there are about ten million processes, which a woman uses to draw attention. And there is not a single exception.

Now, if you want to know the nature of a person, you can know the nature of a person from signature. Signature can tell you everything. You know the person who sign like that (?), that means, 'go to hell, I am, I am.'

(Students laugh)

There are people who write down and they dot their signatures, they mean, 'if you listen to me, fine, other, get into the cannon mouth and be fired.' There are people, who will not worry what they are writing, they'll put one line, cut through and that is, they will never cut T T (?) F E, it looks like couple lines and you make it up what the hell it means.

(Students laugh)

That means, 'listen to me, look to me and understand me; otherwise, you are a piece of so and so.' Those kind of people. Then there are people who will sign like H A R N A M S I N G H. That means, 'I am good for nothing.'

(Students laugh)

And there are people who sign like (?) and you cannot make any word out of it, it look like few couple circles. Those are the people who say, 'whether I am confused and I am not, accept it.' There are signature, which are called executive type. That nature means, 'no, no fault of me, you are always at fault.' There are signature, which are explanatory type. That means, 'come and beg out of me, I'll let you know, otherwise, go to hell.'

Signature, just that one line, where you sign your name, tell A to Z, everything of you. There's nothing you can avoid there. And signature is one thing, which changes. And it, they are very peculiar nature of a person. And every man is a byproduct (?) nature. So, you are dealing with a standard person and you are communicating with a standard person, but there is no standard person. There is a category of nature, which that person represent. Category, you are dealing with a category.

Now, in a human body, the man is a cow, you are dealing with a cow. He's a fox, then you are dealing with a fox. Then he's a bull. Majority of the people, deal with you on the very perfect nature of their previous animal incarnation, majority. Ninety-nine point recurring percent, the nature of the person is still the previous incarnation animal nature. What did I say? Ninety-nine point nine recurring percent. Now that point recurring percent is those people, who have previous incarnation as a human being and acknowledged human being. Now, their words will be like that,

'Hemakund hai jaha taha.'

'Where the Hemakund was, I was there rishiRishi Enlightened being; Yogi. , I did this, I did...'

And you look at them at that time they are funny.

I definitely know, when 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 Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. Gobind SinghGuru Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. used to talk about himself and all that. Majority of the people who used to run their Mala, they used to look at him and laugh.

Your projection of communication is never spiritual, to the extent, minus one percent, out of hundred. You know why? Whenever... Just bear with me now. When you talk, you never understand you are spiritual. You have never talked to preserve your spirituality, your standard of spirituality, your behavior of spirituality or your caliber of spiritual, you are that corrupt.

I have seen the most corrupt people are spiritual teachers, because they talk like a butter and sauce situation. You know that sauce, what they call it, sweet and sour? You understand? But they do not confront the ego of the student. A teacher who cannot confront the ego of the student is not worthy to be a teacher.

There are two qualities, which a teacher must have. Teacher must be in a position to confront the ego of the student, number one. And second, in his communication, he must not be attached to the student. You know what that word is called? Detached attachment. They are confirmed in their behavior. They are going to say, they are going to say whether you love them or hug them, kiss them and have a revolver on their face. You will find them saying the same thing fearlessly, again, again and again.

Now, I'll give you reminder. Take 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. , take his all sayings in 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. . You will be surprised, he talks about God, he directs towards God, he feels about God, he relates to God and within every eighth line you will find a total direction towards God. Check it out. Take 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. , he will tell you all the horror, which can happen to you, if you do not look towards God and he doesn't spare third line. Check 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 Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. Ram DasGuru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. , on every fourth line he will direct you towards God and he will you, he will punch you without letting you know where he is doing it.

Now, these are personalities. Each 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. differs in personality. And remember one thing, how much we love GurusGuru 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. as a person. When 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. was alive, 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 Angad Second Guru of the Sikhs. AngadGuru Angad Second Guru of the Sikhs. was 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 everybody bowed 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 Angad Second Guru of the Sikhs. AngadGuru Angad Second Guru of the Sikhs. . 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. Guru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. , in spite of the fact was 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. , people did not bow to him. And age wise, 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. Harkrishan was five year old, when he became 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. . 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 Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. Gobind SinghGuru Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. was nine year old when he became 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 somebody asked 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. Harkrishan, "You are five year old, what do you know? How can you call yourself 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 are phony."

He said, "What you want?"

He said, "Translate Gita for me."

He said, "Why should I translate? You told me I can't do anything."

He said, "Sure."

He said, "Then take the most idiot, illiterate person in this congregation."

So, he went out, there was a one beggar, who was, who was having those wounds they, they, what are they?

Students: Leprosy.

YB: Lepers. And he brought him in.

He said, "All right, this is the person."

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. Harkrishan put a stick on his shoulder, he said, "All right, you recite Gita."

He recite the Gita Slok and he started translating.

So, there is no spirit in communication and spirit of communication, provided it comes from a free, absolutely free flow of the auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. . When the seven colors of the auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. is clear and they don't inter-exchange on each other. If this slide is red, then it should be red, it is not this green is half there, so, that is called mud auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. . And when the auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. is mud auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. , you are not a human being, simple. You know, that's why I tell you to wear white clothes. Not that I am, I am sales man for a factory, which creates this white, ah, you know, cloth mill or something. Because under any circumstances, if you fall to three foot and a half auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. , it will give you one foot edge. And that is what my fear is that sometime you can be totally (?), basic animal auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. . And then you may take about ten or fifteen days to get out of it. It has to be a full moon that you can change again. And it's not your papa's law that you can do it or vitamin B12 injection will do it. Not at all, I am telling you. Therefore, it is very essential.

There are three fundamental colors, orange golden, blue, orange golden, blue and white. White represents sainthood, blue represent saint and soldier, orange represent divine, saint and soldier. Every other color is a byproduct of its own affair. Red is sexual, sensual; pink is sexual, sensual and projectively positive creative, hence so on and so forth. But for human conscious therapy, the most difficult color you can wear is white. It is most difficult of all colors, because it reflect all the seven colors. And it gives strength to the arc line. Now, when it gives the strength to the arc line, it is very difficult for a person not to think, to be afraid of doing a wrong. There are some people, you dress them white, they'll go berserk.

I saw a person, she said to me, "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. JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. , can I, can I, can I, can I wear off-white (?)?"

(Student laughs)

I said, "But what is white and off-white?"

She said, "Please."

I'll tell you the funniest thing. People who have a black skin, they will like to wear white. But there are people who have black skin, they cannot stand white. You are uncooked stuff, this white skin, that doesn't mean anything. You don't reflect, your skin is very absorbent, it's not... But real black skin is not, among the black is not available. There is a black skin, which is very shiny, it represent blue color. It's a very beautiful skin. It is not what you talk of black skin, you talk of a paint; I am talking of a black skin, which represent a blue projection. Now, those people, if can wear white, they become intuitive, right by wearing white color, just like that. If you are very afraid, you wear the blue color, you become totally like macho, you know, very self-contained, 'I am, I am,' that kind of stuff. And if you happen to wear a golden orange, you'll stay, 'stay there,' automatically.

Color therapy is not a small situation. That is why it represents the projection of Divinity in you, when you top to bottom wear white. Try it sometime. Walk one day different, wearing color clothes. The other day just wear top to bottom white, you'll be shocked. What change between the two days can exist? And the most beautiful thing is when you can project softly and firmly. It is called uncorruptible language.

Now, who's uncorruptible? Somebody you are talking to? No. You, your language corrupts you, your language confuses you. How it corrupts you? Because you gain on another person. When you gain on another person through the words, actually, you lose your self-respect. Anything you do to somebody at the cost of your self-respect, you are corrupt. That's what corrupt means in spiritual word. Sometime you pretend and intend to pretend you are very clever. Actually, you are not. Spiritual world has a flow, which is called direct flow. Spiritual world has that essence. And that essence is; what is that essence? 'I am, I am.'

Communication is meant to explain your self to somebody. Communication is not meant to gain on somebody. Because once you gain on somebody, you shall lose to somebody. And is the most difficult thing to do. Therefore, please remember, communication is meant to neither gain, nor lose, communication is only meant to communicate. And please don't communicate what you think and what you know, communicate what your spirit is. It shall be very wrong for you, if you ever try to communicate with somebody in the spiritual essence of words, what you think. Therefore, communicate infinite truth, neither circumstantial, nor personal.

You know there's a book known as, 'How to make friends.' The guy didn't say a word in it. All he tells you, be good, be this, be that. I tell you how to make a friend, one simple thing. Just say, remembering that it must not prove you as corrupt. That's all. When you communicate, remember, you are responsible towards 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. and 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. must be not dubbed as corrupt. You will be very good. You will have more friends than you can handle.

How to lose friends? Be obnoxious. It doesn't matter what intention you have. Sometime you say, 'I have a good intention, therefore I am obnoxious.' That's not true. When you are obnoxious, you are obnoxious, whatever your intention is that doesn't matter. Question is you do not have self-respect, therefore you get, must get insulted and insult must pick up a war or a quarrel and animosity and whole thing is totally unspiritual. You can yell and scream, you can complain, you can do anything in the world, but talk straight. The very idea you talk angry and don't talk straight. You must understand you need not talk angry. You talk straight, it will look to people I am very angry. Sometime I say some very straight things and my people think, perhaps I am just in bad mood. No, I am not in bad mood; they cannot handle it.

If I say, 'I am sick of the sickness around me.'

They say, 'Yeah, 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. JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. is freaking out.'

It's a simple statement of facts.

So, you need not project lot of words, just say simple words. Because the inner corruption in communication shall immediately come and take hold of the person, who has not been communicating straightforwardly. Communication is normally used by the Earth trip, when you are on Earth trip, Earth frequency to hold each other, to conquer each other, to convince each other, to use and abuse and exploit each other. When it's on ethric realm, then it is used to inspire to give somebody grace, to uplift somebody soul. And it exactly takes the same energy.

Friendship is not a friendship, where the bond is not Infinity. Where there's a purpose, that's not friendship; that is business. Don't mix business and friendship. Love and obedience go together. Where there is a question, there's no love, therefore, don't pretend and say, 'I love you.'

Your greatest power is your spoken word. And you must use them very, very spiritually and very, very consciously. Never try to use a word, which you do not mean. And what you mean, must that meaning must be delivered to another person. You may say, 'I feel good.' The other person may feel that, that because that person is very horrible, therefore I am a enemy, because I feel good on the, on the misfortune of somebody.

It is very obligatory on your part, to communicate with somebody at somebody's frequency, not at your frequency. You must communicate at somebody frequency and you must give your explanation in it. Explain yourself. Temporarily bad communication shall corrupt the relationship. It will bring misery, it will bring misunderstanding, it will bring lot of pain. And every pain in your life, does not come from God, it comes from your wrong communication. Don't blame God for it. God has got nothing to do with your suffering. God created you, how can God make you to suffer, tell me? You create a little wood toy and you don't make it suffer, you keep it nicely, you show it to everybody, you explain it to every, don't you do that? You, God is that naïve, after creating you, He wants you to suffer? Not a bit. Suffering comes from your wrong communication, uncreative communication, selfish (?). Selfish communication is communication, where you want to influence somebody or you get influenced by somebody.

There are two beautiful words in the word, 'yes sir, no sir.' You understand what I am saying? Yes sir, no sir; no sir, yes sir. There's nothing equal to these two words. Rest is all paraphernalia.

You know when they test anybody's IQ and all that, they make that boxes, tick it, this, this, yes, no, yes, no, yes, no. That's all your life is, yes, no, no, yes. Because if you can goof on this, then rest is a paraphernalia. Sometime you want to (?), you want to say no and you end up saying yes. Sometime you want to say yes and you end up saying no, because you took a long route.

Life is very happy and easy with those, who are very quick with their yes and no. I suffer, I live very painful life, because I am very compassionate, I do not know how to say no, I suffer. I am fifty percent unhappy all the time. There is something wrong with my tongue, I do not know, I may have to get a operation done or something.

(Student laughs)

When I have to say no, it stops, it cannot say it, I have tried many times. In the class I am saying no, no, no, no, no, no I can say it. But when I deal with any person, one thing stops on my language, that's no. And I have found out, even by counseling people, it takes me a hard use of energy to tell the person this is wrong. And which I know is not honest. I know it is not honest, I know that, I know to myself. That's why, when I have to tell somebody he's a rotten person, I have to say, 'Look, I know you are rotten, but I, I hope that you have a hope.'

Why I qualify it? You know why? The day I won't qualify it, I won't be alive. I think that's my KarmaKarma The law of cause and effect applied to mental, moral, and physical actions. Ego attaches us to and identifies us with objects, feelings, and thoughts. These attachments create a bias toward certain lines of action. Instead of acting you begin reacting. Karmas are the conditions required in order to balance or complete these tendencies. Though necessary, karma is not dictatorial or fatalistic. It is the mechanism that allows the finite experience of existence to maintain and stabilize itself. We all have free will and can take actions to re-direct the momentum of a karma. We can transform it or neutralize it using meditation, jappa, good deeds, or intuition that remove your sense of ego and the identification with that past line of action. . I am hoping against hope. Because I honestly believe, I honestly believe that every person can be honest person, because every person is a honest person.

I think, this corruption, blunders, mistake, cheating, all these words are just expression of ignorance. I believe and I sincerely believe that every person is a byproduct of divine, therefore, cannot go wrong. Person can act wrong, but person is not wrong. Mark these two words. I don't believe that any person is wrong. I believe, a right person can act wrong, because of?

Student: Ignorance.

YB: Ignorance. Because he could not recognize truth, because he could not practice truth, because his essence is truth, but he... And anybody who will live beyond his essence will suffer.

If you want to win somebody, win it through service, not through talking. If you want your everlasting relationship, there is only one thing, obey. Obey, you shall be obeyed. That's the law. Because those who shall obey, shall only are those who shall become commanders. It is true in army; it is true in (?). This is the law of truth; this is the law of human spirit.

It is not that you are corrupt, it is not that you are wrong, it is not that you sin, that is not true. Your essence is true and you are true. Only because of innocent ignorance you act wrong. So, telling somebody is wrong is a lie, because nobody is wrong. Person can act wrong and every wrong act can be corrected. Therefore, there is not desirable attitude to hold animosity of revenge against anybody.

That's why 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. said, one article of man in God and God in man is Nirvair. Nirvair does not mean that if somebody is doing wrong, don't tell him wrong, tell him this is wrong, correct it. That's it. But just because somebody is wrong, just think he's totally wrong, he's born wrong, he's this, that; that is not human, that even animals don't do. Holding animosity in your heart against another person is holding negativity against God, you can never be forgiven. You do whatever you have to do.

And number two, when you speak, when you communicate, you communicate gracefully. That does not mean, graceful does not mean that you have to be very, ah, ah, use lot of adjectives and sir and all that, no, no. Graceful means you must explain your spirit. Wrong explanation through your words can bring misunderstanding between two friends. And life is a ship, where friends live to be happy and enemies live to be destructive. That's why the word is friendship. Is a ship of friends; that's what life is. Life is... There is nobody alone.

'Ang Sang Wahe Wahe Guru , Whaa-hay Guroo A mantra of ecstasy and dwelling in God. It is the Infinite teacher of the soul. Also called the gur mantra. GuruWahe Guru , Whaa-hay Guroo A mantra of ecstasy and dwelling in God. It is the Infinite teacher of the soul. Also called the gur 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. .'

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 you, three exist all the time.

Just feeling that you are alone, thinking that you are alone, advocating you are alone, is totally a animosity to God. Because you are not. The highest meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. is when you feel, you know and you understand that you are a Trinity. 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 you. 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 your guiding spirit to God, God is your ultimate destiny of the spirit and you is the finite to experience the Infinity. And we will talk about this Trinity, when we meet on Monday.

Next week I'll be only with you on Monday alone. So, we'll try to finish this. I wanted to work that week also with you, but unfortunately, some emergency has happened and I have to got to go. I am a one man with lot of tails. So, somebody can pull me from the left, somebody pull the right and somebody has done a good job. So, sorry to miss you and shall not be with you next week. But Monday, we'll hold the class and we'll talk about this Trinity, if you remember to make a note.

But this meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. , which we are going to do, is very simple. Is a simple holding both thumbs like this as you are holding somebody's hand. And is a simple project, absolute pressure free. But the total pressure is between the elbows and the arms like that, it's a stretch, it's a stretch on. It is for those people, who just think naïve habits. Naïve, naïve, to be naïve and think naïve is a habit, just to get out of that. Understand that? See it, just like this. Palms inside. Main power is between these two thumbs, this lock of the thumbs, like this.

Student: (?) the right?

YB: Yeah, almost. Because right is to... If you are right-handed, you have to hold the right hand; if you are left-handed, then you will use this way, because something has to hold the other one. Clear? And stretch it straight.

Student: (------)

YB: We, we, we, what we?

Student: (------)

YB: Yeah.

(Students laugh)

It has to be sometime same, all the time not though.

Now, hold it here and hold it almost the same distance, as the angle is this. And it will be very mathematically about twelve inches, nine to twelve inches. Is that clear? Don't touch it here, don't touch it there, but just straight. The front of the arms should be almost straight and between six to nine inches or in case you have a bigger hand, then it's a nine to twelve inches, not more than twelve inches, you will have that.

And now, please close your eyes. Inhale deep. And in one breath, you have to repeat it five times.

'Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Har. Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Har. Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Har. Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Har. Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Har.'

Students (chant): Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Har. Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Har. Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Har. Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Har. Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Hari, Har.

YB: Inhale. And I'll count five times. Go ahead.

Five times in one breath. You inhale, you cannot, if you practice this for a long time, you cannot think wrong and nobody can think wrong about you.

You know my sign was Virgo and I never knew how to get out of the Virgo negativity. We are very bitter when we start negating somebody. And I never used to like that. I did forty days SadhanaSadhana , Saadhana A spiritual discipline; the early morning practice of yoga, meditation, and other spiritual exercises. The Aquarian Sadhana can be an individual or group practice; Ideally, it includes the recitation of Japji Sahib, a Kundalini Yoga kriya, and chanting the Aquarian Sadhana meditations, immediately followed by Gurdwara. According to Yogi Bhajan, the potency of any Kundalini Yoga and meditation practice will be enhanced in a group setting. , since then I am very clear.

It's my obligation sometime, being a spiritual teacher to some people, I do bug them and hug them, that's a different. That's called professional code. But normal speaking, I am a very humorous person. I used to be pretty cynical.

One day actually, my governess told me, she said, "Baba, why you are so bitter in words?"

I said, "No, I never said bitter things."

(Students laugh)

She said, "Don't you understand, you are even bitter now, your no is not right. You should say no."

But I said, "No."

(Students laugh)

You know that, no. That Canadian hi, they say, (?), in the end they add that word. Have you seen some Canadians talking?

Student: (------)

YB: Hay, Hay.

(Student laughs)

That is their confirmatory slang of communication. It happens in cold countries.

(Students laugh)

In cold countries, people love to talk and they love to talk in certain sounds, which are very familiar. In warm country you will never find that thing. If you'll go to the Caribbean islands and see the natives talking, they will never use any sound project, they will say words straight. Because we are experiencing the cold countries, in Europe also you will see in the accent, there is a very personal thing. Germans are very hard, ah, there is a, in the hardness also there is a personal thing. And if you see the Netherlanders talking, they are very soft, but in the soft also there is a personal touch. Canadian, you can know because they are our neighbors. And just see the Mexicans. When you speak a Mexican in Spanish... There are two Mexican, those who live on the flat land and those who live in the mountain. You'll be surprised, both speak Spanish, both speak different Spanish. Because it also depend on the environments and the communication you are in, how you want to speak. But always remember, communication is to explain your dignity through your Divinity.

And we'll talk about the trinity when we meet on Monday, how that you can built up, to the Unison of life, so that you can live divine. Don't go to God, live here as God. When you go to God, what you are going to do? You won't be alive.

(Students laugh)

Is ridiculous to go to God, just live here as God, that'll be finest thing to do.

Yes.

Student: (?) question, is, is there a specific time and does it matter?

YB: For this no, it's personal.

Student: Does it matter (?)?

YB: Whether you hold the left or right.

Student: Whether...

YB: Whichever hand can behold.

Student: Are the, are the thumbs, the thumbs bent (?)?

YB: No, the thumb hold each other.

Student: Thumbs are straight.

YB: Yeah, you have to do that. That is where the lock and pressure is.

(Students sing, 'May the long time...')

YB: (over the song) May the long time sunshine... And the pure light... Guide your way on.

(Students stop singing)

And song of the Khalsa, when things are down and dark and we walk the tallest.

(Students laugh)
