... Once upon a time there were Greeks, they never understood the philosophy and basic ethics of God, its Infinity but they understood their own reality and they were not in a position to let things go. It was a very challenging situation of the challenging civilization, that's why they make a arrangement. When you eat break the plate, so if you go to any Greek festivity they will serve you better then every plate will end up in the fireplace broken. It was not necessary but you can understand the magnitude of colossal mistake a human can do, not let it go. It's very difficult today to even tell you what GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. has said let it go,

"Chinta Taa Ki Kijiye Jo Anhonee Hoye, Iss Maarag Sansar Ko Nanak Thir Nei Koye"

There is no end to this world and you should worry about those things which are impossible. Everything is possible can happen to everybody. It can happen to you too. But drop it. Don't be insane, don't share insanity, don't propagate insanity, it's a very simple way to live. When you go to a jungle on a trail ride you always avoid bushes, which can scratch you. In life you don't. Why don't you live very protectively in your own grace? And sometime you have all the energy for the physical body, you can have twenty-six relationships, thirty-six scandals and ninety-two others, and you have all the mental tragedy you let down yourself, you let down everybody else and you nail everybody to death. But what about spirit? Sometime show you have a spirit. All the time show you have a spirit. That is the source key to prosperity. Must you show spirit. I tell you what spirit is, something practically happened. In New York we bought a carpet, the guy gave me price, I gave him price. He didn't agree, I said, "Well, I am buying for Temple; I am not going to pay you more than exact bare minimum, no profit."

He said, "All right, let us do fifty-fifty, fifty percent you pay, fifty percent I pay."

He has never come here, he has never seen the Temple, he doesn't know where our GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. is. But it invoked his spirit, the height. His attitude changed with the altitude. It's very difficult to understand a man as a man or woman as a woman. Things are judged by material wealth, not by physical spirit. You are alive, and your very handicap is the cosmonology is not with you. You can have as many relatives and friends and you can be as social as you want, it is not going to give you one iota of happiness. If you cannot carry people you cannot lead, without being the leader you cannot enjoy fulfillment and you have to carry, physically carry, no nonsense is worse than a curse when you know how to carry people and you don't. That is the simple solitude of God, then God shall dwell for His total humanity within you and that's what GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. said,

"Jis Hath Jor Kar Vaykhai So-I, Naanak Utam Neech Naa Ko-I."

Somebody that day asked me a beautiful question, "Why we go to the GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. ?"

I said, "Do you send your clothes for laundry?'"

"Yes, I never wash at home, I send them for laundry."

I said, "We send our soul to GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. for laundry so that all the weakly dirt and everything else is washed away."

"Sadh SangatSadh Sangat Literally "congregation of the disciplined ones"; company of the holy. Lag Tariye."

In the discipline, courtiers of the court of the Lord, all things will get to a elevation. Just to elevate ourself. Coming to GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. is a most powerful systematic surrender in the world. You come to the gate 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. . When you come in you are the courtier 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. , when you go out you become a person again. If that experience you have in the GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. because there comes all psyches of all people, which interconnect and to vibrate that psyche we do the Chour. A special Chour, which is made on 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. so that the entire... look with my eyes, not with yours, look at the psyche a flare of ray of energy in seven colors in one whiteness getting into the every fiber of everybody and being flowing through every nerve here and multiply that with thirty trillion. Understand how humongous the action is. You sometime understand or not but if you geographically and scientifically multiply that way then you understand what a GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. is.

GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. is not what you and I and we think. It is a interwoven psyche into length and breath and height and width of the psyche of a person from the soul, mind and body together in dedication surrender momentarily, you know you go out you start gossiping, have you seen those people who come to the GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. sit outside and gossip? Don't you understand what is what and why it happens? You have any idea? Person comes all the way here and sits on the bench outside and not utter a word. And try to talk so that loudspeaker is there also, people who arrange they want everybody to hear, so he or she cannot hear. If you cannot reach Unknown you are cursed ghost on this Earth. There is nothing human in you. You got to go, you have to go and you have to be. It's not practical.

There should be an hour of time at least, sixty-two minutes when you should be just you. Just you. It's not even thoughts, just you. And the best way is take a stethoscope, put it on your heart, stick it with a thing and listen to the beat and breathe absolute mechanically. Do this. You will find something out of this you have never found out. Listen to your heart and breathe mechanically. From the left nostril in, and right nostril out. That is what the Pagat says 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. , he says, "I am not open, I am honored, I have become a Universe to myself. I have the whole understanding, it's nothing to touch at very sight of me things change." This is a very qualifying word but the base of a Sikh is in one little line in JapjiJapji , Japji Sahib The Song of the Soul written by the First Sikh Guru, Guru Naanak Dayv Jee. Saadhana opens with a recitation of Japji each morning at 3:40 am. A mantra, poem, and inspired religious scripture composed by Guru Nanak. Japji Sahib gives a view of the cosmos, the soul, the mind, the challenge of life, and the impact of our actions. Its 40 stanzas are a source of many mantras and can be used as a whole or in part to guide both your mind and your heart. ,

"Dukh Par Har Sukh Ghar Le Jao."

Give away your complaints, pain, miseries, disease, whatever, unto to the God and take happiness home. Who is enlightened? How much time it takes a candle to enlighten? One second? All it needs a matchstick or that thing, which you flip and it brings you a flame, whatever you call it. It is not... but the lighter lights the candle. Whether it's a matchstick; once his head is glowing the light is all around, darkness leaves that is the caliber of a human. You have to enlighten yourself with your personal light. You have been lied thousands of years, you are habitually non-religious and absolutely non-human. The only lighter you have is your own spirit, which keeps you alive with that tiny spirit if you enlighten yourself then you will be enlightened, not any other way. 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. can teach you a way. You have to do it. Look at me; I am the most easy target. Look at my life. I was some forty-two or forty year old when I came, not a single man born of a woman ever looked at my face. There was such a impact. Here! If one is super idiot, I am a super target. They have their philosophies. 'Oh I can't trust him, I can't like him,' well that is fine, don't trust, don't like, don't even do anything, this is the prophecy 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. , not me. I didn't know myself that this is going to be this way.

I never thought that we will buy the ranchThe Ranch Yogi Bhajan's home just across the highway from the Aashram, and site of the Yogi Bhajan Memorial Birthday Celebration. or we will have the gold house, it all happened. Things also are as good spirit as anything and they choose who they want to choose. But if that is the rule of the thumb and if that is the understanding you belong to God then drop negativity yourself. There is no way but this oldest, oldest Tommy saying, it's a harsh saying but... Britain's Tommy who were always in the war this is their saying. "Without a altitude and attitude, human is a prostitute." Those who are all bastards, those are those all bastard children are collected, raised, educated and trained from day one onto the army. They are the best soldiers. And they have one name all of them 'Tommies' because they don't know who their John is, so they are Tommies. But even they in their 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. say, if there is no altitude to attitude human is a prostitute, how long you can do this to yourself? How long do you play games? Don't you think life which does not have a harmony between the two is a war? Why we come here? We come here to do something. Put that tape Har Har Har Har Gobinday! Let us see how Siri Ved is alert. He is trying to match up, poor guy, pray for him all of you. Whether you have sore throat like me or you are very healthy, sing please. "Mooh Ke Bolan Boliye Jiss Sunta Rahe Pyar" I want to give you practical example and practical asset what this will do.

(Tape, "Har Har Har Har Gobinday..." is played)

YB: (over the tape) Right from the navel pointNavel 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. ! Concentrate. Now speak mentally. Speak with the mind only. Go deeper into your mind, concentrate and speak mentally.

Now with the breath in your own silence be the courtier of the court of 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. . Mix your sound, mental sound with your breath in absolute silence. This is the beginning of human elevation. Processed by the virtue of one's own spirit and enlightened through the own soul, the bright and beautiful and bountiful human. If soul has chosen you then you must also choose your very soul, something here, hereafter and thereafter, which has to go with you. And Qadar the God and Kudrat the Universe is just relationship of one the Lord, the other service.

Cut down the tragedies, cut down the discipline, which is bothering you, cut down the habits, which are not your way. There are million things, which you don't desire but still you continue. But if you just become for that moment of life a big zero. All tragedies, calamities, bad memories, past, present, future fears will become zero. You shall be free, you shall be liberated and there is nothing to it. It is the way it is. There is nothing to feel or make it a big spiritual event. It's not even a event. You have many things, just become one thing, God is many thing, He becomes one thing. He never changes His position and policy. That is what is it. In this human dignity you have to cover the distance for your destiny, "Wahe Wahe Guru , Whaa-hay Guroo A mantra of ecstasy and dwelling in God. It is the Infinite teacher of the soul.

YB: This Saropa, Saropa from head to your entire wear you get it. It's always a normal cloth and that cloth and size is that of Ardasiya. You have seen in very good Sikh Gurdwaras they put a cloth around and hold it in the hand before they pray. Now when you get a Saropa, which is a piece of cloth, I am not denying that, and it comes to you from Sangat, whenever that Saropa you put around your neck and you do prayer all that who are here shall ever be bound down to pray with you. It's never a piece of cloth. Never will be a piece of cloth again. And some people value a Saropa more than they value their life and nothing happens to them. Because after all it's psyche and the magnetic field and it's the person and the magnitude. It's a question of enforcing impact and projecting balance so that the mental negativity maybe wiped out and that is from that tradition people are given Saropas from the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's house. Because that seals the psyche of all humans and their spirit and their power of prayer together, all these three things.

Everything is Trinity. Anything, which is not Trinity is duality or in single. Therefore please understand what this Saropa is all about. I am still having two hundred rupees original bills when I was given a Saropa at Akal Takhat these two old people gave me I have kept that money in a conch. And look how much it multiplied. All of you, all your environments, all your surrounding, all your impact, your honor, your love, your disgrace and grace where grace has surmounted disgrace, imagine what we would have been if we would not have been what we are. May God bless us all, those who serve the Lord, the Universe will serve them, those who deny the Lord, Universe will totally rot them, that is the principle of Mother Nature, which cannot be changed. I agree God is forgiving but Mother Nature is not. So "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.
