...Oh do you read this guy?

Student: (-------)

YB: Oh SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Peter Kaur's birthday, oh Ms. Paranoia, where is she?

Student: (-------)

YB: You are hiding even today, your birthday is today SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Peter Kaur, how come that be? Hey Paranoia, super American Paranoia Kaur and Singh where are you, come out, come out of the back.

(Students' laughter...)

(Student's clapping)

What do you think, we love you so much and you are always in the corner I mean what is this you are a rat or what? You have to find a some hole to get into?

(Students' laughter...)

Look at people who live in Washington think they own the earth. And you have lived there for a longtime, right? Well, happy birthday and all the cookies you made and all that stuff?

(?)

(Students' laughter...)

Sounds to be, they are warm, they are warm like a gentle graceful human being, right? You know what warmth is? When you are kind, gentle and very graceful to somebody.

Oh my God this looks like Hawaiian to me.

Student: (-------)

YB: These are those green Hawaiian donuts.

(Students' laughter...)

Student: (-------)

YB: They are heavens.

Circulate it, those who want to eat can have it.

Student: These are from Surya Kaur and Singh.

YB: Surya Kaur and Singh for getting all the money from Alaska?

Student: (-------)

YB: Looks like. Looks like good, it smells like dollars.

(Students' laughter...)

Not like roses anymore.

How is your husband? He is going to wreck no car anymore?

Student: (-------)

YB: Really?

Student: (-------)

YB: It's really funny. Americans have all the roads and all the cars and they do not forget one thing, cars are not meant to be wrecked. What do you think heart is heart. You know spelling H E A RT heart. By the way Giani Zail Singh the president of India and our best friend. The surgery was successful, four bypasses, he is in good shape, stable under intensive care nothing critical. Good report, he believed your prayers will work and we hope so and we thank. We don't claim anything, God is everything, but progressively you can be president of the country, seven hundred million people worth look to you, but if you eat wrong food you can block up your arteries, you remember? So when you are young stop doing it. That's the lesson you can learn out of it.

Yeah there is a one word called heart, how you spell it?

Students: H E A R T

YB: H E...

Students: A R T.

YB: Now, can you make anything out of it?

Student: (-------)

YB: H E

Students: He.

YB: A R T.

Students: Art.

YB: It is called he art. It's not she art. It is?

Students: He art.

YB: He art. Right? I am not encouraging the machismo, but that's the way, that's the way they spell it. He, he who, who he, who? Who is that he?

Ah?

Student: God.

YB: Yeah, it beats because of he, not because of you. You think your heart beats because of you. It's a constant search, it's a constant pounding, and its sound is also he, he, he, he, he, and if you listen to it very closely with the stethoscope it will start saying thou, thou, thou, thou, thou. If it murmurs you go to the hospital, it costs you three hundred fifty dollars for the first sitting and if murmurs again it costs couple thousands dollars to know what is going on and if murmurs little more you don't want even to walk. That is how much connection between your heart the he art, he art it is the art of the he.

Something out of all miracles of every sort, the miracle of the art in which the heart beats regular, systematic, servicefull, devotion, and in its own excellence. How much your own heart loves you if that much you can love he and as artistically it serve you that much artistically if you can serve your self. As the heart serves you physically that much you can serve 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. you are not supposed to find God, God will be supposed to be glad to find you. And you will be loved by everyone and everywhere. Don't try to hide. Don't make God as a business, I am selling God and you are buying God and you are buying God and I am selling God, you love God and you hate God, it doesn't work that way. There is no something like that in the existing of the entire existence. In the existing existence to feel loved is to be continuously humming and humming like that of heart. The art that it is loving and living because of the he, there are two words in that, he and art. You never thought, you say heart. You say it so rudely, this little guy is a muscle, very small and soft and good one right? Do you understand that? They make a very continuous, very systematic rhythmic sound.

When heart is out of rhythm you know what a hell it can create? No, no, no, not only your heart, anything on this planet is a magnetic field and any magnetic field when is out of rhythm that means trouble. So art of love is, be rhythmic even fight rhythmically. If you want to yell and scream, yell and scream in a rhythm.

Yell...

Student: (-------)

YB: Now this is not rhythmic.

Come on, do you know how to rhythmically yell? Anybody, I mean Americans are expert in yelling, they yell loud and clear. Is there anybody who know how to yell?

Student: Yeah.

YB: Come on go ahead.

Student: All right.

YB: Now that won't work.

(Students' laughter...)

Hey, oh address the person properly I say. Have you know, have you seen Canadian speaking? How they speak?

Student: (-------)

YB: Ae. Ae, it's called communicative rhythm. Are you all right ae? Ae, their lip goes this way.

(Students' laughter...)

And they utter the word ae.

(Students' laughter...)

It doesn't mean anything, it doesn't mean anything, but it means a lot, it means I am a Canadian. Americans don't do that. Language is geographical, language is not personal. Never ever language will be personal. There are certain things which are totally geographical, there are certain habits which will always be personal and there are certain attitudes which can be totally yours and not mine. And lay my attitude on you and you lay your attitude on me is just nothing but cruel. It is cruel to lay number on each other. It is totally inhuman and very, very indirectly inhuman to lay number on each other. And it's the most worst of all is playing game with each other, it's not required. Just understand each individual is a constituent magnetic field, now I am using a very technical physics language, constituent?

Students: Magnetic field.

YB: Magnetic field and every magnetic field have the capacity to attract and reject. Therefore don't try to play with magnetic fields. What you can do? You can exist with them. Charan, Charan you know what Charan means? Charan means feet. Charan means?

Students: Feet.

YB: Mangala Charan means happy feet.

(Students' laughter...)

You know the word Mangala Charan? I am not saying it because she has come after a long time, sometime it's good to welcome somebody you love very much, but it's okay. Charan means feet. Mangala means happy, happy feet. It means walk, talk, be rhythmic. And all those words 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. which creates that rhythm, ae are called Mangala Charan. So, every GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. , every shabadShabad , Shabd Sound, especially subtle sound or sound imbued with consciousness. It is a property or emanation of consciousness itself. If you meditate on shabad it awakens your awareness. has a Mangala Charan, ek ong kaar, satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. guruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru.

A Naam gives identity, form, and expression to that which was only essence or subtle before. It is also referred to as the Word. karta purak there are certain things to say, they are all known as Mangala Charan. Mangala Charan is the first magnetic touch, a vibratory touch of the soul and the Infinity. What is the Mangala Charan of the SukhmaniSukhmani Peace Lagoon; a prayer written by Guru Arjan; Song of Peace. ?

"Aad Guray Nameh Jugad Guray Nameh

SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Guray Nameh 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. Devay Nameh"

This is Mangala Charan. Now do you understand many of you who are new, who are not with me for a long time, how many of you have come today, only today, you have never come to the class before raise your hands?

Okay you do not know what I am saying right?

Student: Right?

(Students' laughter...)

YB: Yeah I know, I know you do not know. But you still know I am saying something good, because that is called connecting rhythmic magnetic vibratory vibration. It's a connecting, ae doesn't mean anything, you do not know what ae means, how are you ae? Doesn't mean anything, why is that ae is hanging behind you? But that's the way the Canadians talk. It is called verbal extension and Mangala Charan is called prior extension. So there is a way to communicate in the game of love too. You can say something you idiot, you can say that and the person has done wrong will accept it, right? And you can say it my God, my love you are... darling, you have led me down to hell, now tell me who is, which is effective. One is a very shallow projectile attack, hey you idiot it's direct, it's right out here and there, but this way oh my dear love you have really ruined me, really that one that grinding word, that cutting in cutting in really. Oh my God you know what that does?

That's the power, that's the power, if you want to be angry, be affectionate and angry. I tell you what I saw once it's very beautiful. There was a very beautiful lady and she spoke a very ugly word, you know and this guy totally grabbed her, totally grabbed her, and hugged her and kissed her and kissed her and kissed her and kissed her and then he said, "If these lips ever will be that ugly I'll not live to kiss them again, that's why let me be mad and let me kiss them once for all forever, so I may not regret I never kissed you enough, but these ugly words coming out of the lips I am really through."

And believe me or not it is now about eighth year that ever she could use any word which exist in English language which can be even considered harsh. Forget about ugly word, I am talking of the harsh, she doesn't even speak a harsh word.

I questioned her, I said, "How can you change that?"

She said, "I'll prefer not to say a word than to hurt him."

There are ways to do things. Love is you and you are the love and that you can learn from the beating of the heart. Don't fluctuate, don't say things and promise things to play games.

I tell you one thing, one thing you can eliminate in your life, in your life there is only one way to feel good is to live very simple and direct. When you play games, games are definitely going to play with you and it's a sad story of life. I tell you how it works. When you are very intelligent and you are very commercial and you are very beautiful and you are very intellectual and you are very pretty and you are very young and you are very sweet and you are very this and you are very that and you play a game and I buy it but it doesn't matter how dumb I am, one day I am going to find that you have played a game right? Is that true or not? That day you won't exist in my world forever whether I say it or not. You follow that? And do you understand the risk? Do you understand the bitterness which you create by your own sequence and do you know the consequences of so bitterly inhuman?

Now 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. Dev Kaur, do you feel I love you or not?

Student: I do.

YB: You never called me anymore, because you are afraid I'll tell you not to eat and over throw, right that is true? Ah?

Student: (-------)

YB: Or the marriage is going very good you don't have the time?

(Students' laughter...)

Which side of that is true?

Student: (-------)

YB: You really?

Student: Yes, I do.

YB: I do wanted to talk to you too, but why we don't talk?

Busy?

Student: I asked for an appointment.

YB: You don't need anybody, nobody needs an appointment, I walk through that door within that three minutes I can meet seven people. Akasha didn't have an appointment with me today, did she? Didn't I give you a good very solid perfect hug?

Student: Yes sir.

YB: And when you come for appointment I don't give anybody a hug. Because I have been sitting all the time and for sitting people it's very difficult to get up and hug.

(Students' laughter...)

I am too lazy for that.

(Students' laughter...)

Oh no, you must understand we have a very, very extremely loving divine family, we are very beautiful people, we are the only pride America can be proud of. You know how proud we can be? We did everything to become righteous, we did everything to become gorgeously beautiful, we are extremely clean and white and shining, we do represent a characteristic that we mean business. We started absolutely with nothing and with all the bad habits you can calculate on a calculator and still there will be plus. And we are living now absolutely within the range of very, very good citizenry and we are very, very beautiful people, minus here and there, we do little grapy, creepy thing because we live in Los Angeles and San Francisco is near to us and you know wind comes from, wind comes from there and wind comes from here and you know it is I can't promise that you can, we can be foolproof because that all God is and this is not our character. But you know one thing more better than that, that our children are very courageous, they have grit, they understand, they are very devotional, they are very free, they feel very proud of themselves and what else you want.

We miss sadhanas that's true but we don't miss all together whole year.

(Students' laughter...)

And if even we miss one year full of 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. , we do remember that 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. is a good thing, which all do not remember. And we hate our husband and love our wives or hate our wives and love other people and do whole thing, but at the time of action we do feel that we are very confined disciplined people with character and we are not, not doing lot of bizarre things, what do you think? It's all ordinary? That means in bottom line of it is that we are not temperamental animals anymore.

And when a man is not temperamental man is on the path of God. And when man is acting out of kindness always man is God. Yeah. No problem we are few, right? We are few right? How many good places are in the world? Few. Good people are always few. People who can buy the discipline and go by the discipline are always few.

Listen this is how it works. If God loves you He shall bring to your door where the discipline is the hardest. You want to know how much God loves you? As you can measure the temperature with the thermometer you can totally measure the temperature being loved by God. If you are loved by God there will be, what they call it? Ankush on the elephant what they call it?

Student: (-------)

YB: That mahout who sits on the elephant, what you call it in America, how you pronounce that guy who sits on the neck of the elephant?

Student: (-------)

YB: Mahout, there is no other word than mahout, you can't make it anything. And he has that needle, long iron thing, like a needle with a side hook on that, you know what that is? Ankush. Sometime he has not to even use it he shows it to the elephant and that mighty beast walk straight. Because he knows the elephant knows that if he is going to misbehave and this guy has that in hand it is going to about four inches right in his head, he knows it. He knows it, his total might is into that discipline, that guy can take trunk, roll it around the waist of that guy and throw it at least one mile like a cannon ball.

(Students' laughter...)

Difference is might is totally good for nothing. There is no defense. And absolutely in that defenseless state all he has is that about one feet long and little curly thing called Ankush, that little stick of iron with a needle pinpoint on one side is like a big nail. But the elephant knows the pain of it. That's why God created pain out of love for you. Out of love, out of sheer love to keep you on the track as the mahout has the Ankush you have called disease to keep you on the track. Otherwise each one of you sitting here is going to declare, I am the God, I am the Bhagvan, you know man is crazy. Crazy human, I tell you the degree of the man who (?) no God and who doesn't know, not that I love GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Guru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. , I love him anyway but 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. found the Infinity, reliable Infinity of God, reliable?

Students: Infinity of God.

YB: He said, "Neecho neech pehana."

I mean he said I am the lowliest of the low. You know why? He saw the highest of the high, you understand? But have you seen those people who say I am bhagvan, how you will feel tomorrow if I say, I am Bhagvan Hari Bhajan Singh, what do you feel?

(Students' laughter...)

Don't you feel I have gone crazy? Are you sure? I'll feel I have gone crazy, I don't know whether you feel it or not. Because how can I be God? This all big titles do not mean a thing. There is only one title, which is entitled of the praise and worthiness. You know what is that is? There is only one title which is entitled to worth of praise and worship is the act of godliness in you. You can be a beast and you can be an angel. That kind act, that giving, giving to a fellow being to make him feel loved.

Hey, are you with me?

No, no, don't, no, separate this love affair of your, because it is very difficult to tell you because your love is to grab the person, kiss him and hug him and have an intercourse, I am not getting into that, my apologies. Making somebody feel loved is making somebody feel you are mentally, emotionally and radiantly together. When the intercourse between the radiant body happens man other person or human being feels totally fulfilled. It is gorgeous, it's great, I mean physically you can do whatever you want to do, you have much more a better science than I even know, I have seen it. You know postures, sexual posture more than there exists yoga posture so you know and you are creating variety everyday, so it's no need to discuss. But there is a one thing which I want to discuss with you tonight. Somebody, somebody or everybody or anybody may be asking or not asking can be made to be feel loved, you can make somebody that you love somebody, can you not do it? Without doing any harm and you know how can you do it? Give me the simple answer? Come on? (?) Come on, come on, anybody hey you. Ah?

Student: (-------)

YB: Ah?

Student: (-------)

YB: Now by assuring another person you have no game to play. It is the highest touch of love, if you can make another person feel very honestly you have no game to play you can really make a person feel loved. Because it is ridiculous to make a person feel loved and then person is going to find you played a game and that is very unfair. You got the idea? No, no or yes?

Students: Yes sir.

YB: What do you mean yes, you just said it to just please me? Why don't you say no and tell me you are playing game?

(Students' laughter...)

YB: You think I don't know you? You know if you just attend my one class you should change at least fifty percent. I talk to you exactly the basic things. I want you not to act emotionally, not to act through feelings and emotion and I want you to act through pure, come on add the word?

Student: (-------)

YB: No, no, I never said that.

Student: (-------)

YB: No, I never said that, I never said love either, you can read my all lectures, they are all tape recorded by this guy so I can't even get back on this thing, come on.

Side-B

I want you to answer?

Student: (-------)

YB: There is only one word.

Student: (-------)

YB: Never.

Student: (-------)

YB: Kindness I never said. Consciously, consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself.

(Students' laughter...)

Foul again, think quick, you must know the consequence of the spoken words, words cannot be eaten back. So, when you speak it should be totally spontaneously, accurately, truthfully true.

YB: Time is?

Students: Now.

YB: Quality of time is?

Students: Now.

YB: A, a...

(Students' laughter...)

Quality of time is? Quality of time is?

Students: Now.

Qualify of time is?

Qualify of time is graceful. Quantity of time is plentiful, quality of time is graceful and life is a gift. So don't make too much shifts just simply play no games. Got the idea? Got the?

Students: Idea.

(Students' laughter...)

What you think it is which makes you to love? What you think it is which makes you to love?

Student: (-------)

(Students' laughter...)

YB: You juggle with the idea of love to find the reality of love. Because love is the essence of God and essence of God is you. So there has to be an established relationship.

You know I was supposed to only teach today I flew back yesterday so I can do my two class a week you know because I consciously feel missing a class with you is taking away from you a very beautiful portion of you. It just means that makes you not to be fed properly or make you not to be watered properly or make you not to be cleaned properly. I feel responsible, I hope you will feel responsible too? So it's not longtime for me to live anymore and within the short time I am here I have taken a lot of blunt and lot of pain to leave with you something which I experienced and I find that experience very, very beautiful. It's very pleasant and you know if you really want to know the truth I was not supposed to live in this body, this body my body this car edition, you know like Japanese car after every nine thousand miles they just go bananas and up to that they stand solid. Now Americans are matching up by saying, well my car will go up to fifty thousand miles or five years whichever is earlier. I got a body, body is a gift we live in body, body doesn't live in us. I got a body as you buy a car with your 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 bought a body.

(Students' laughter...)

You know with dollars you buy a car you take a loan you go on paying interest and in three years and all that stuff, I was supposed to live exactly simple. I should have gone, I should have started going at forty-five right, but stick around but forty-eight was the maximum and somehow thanks to somebody's prayer Dr. Soram's vitamin, holistic feeling and heeling and God knows Dr. Jaswant acrobats and prayers and Allan is sharpening his knives since longtime if he ever has to use.

(Students' laughter...)

And Baba Singh is making better and better ice cream just to get to a point to make everybody feel sweet and God knows what. Now it is all extension you know what I mean? So, time is to think consciously that everyday we must grow and we must be. Because what is more beautiful and responsible is tomorrow these children have to learn from you. If mother is crazy don't expect that children will not learn fast enough what craziness is, be conscious that whatever your behavior is, is a teaching in itself. If you love your children you got to come out of your ego cocoon and you come out and span and be loving and be nice and be pretty. So humble suggestion is feel, feel fill in, feel?

Students: Loved.

YB: Feel.

Students: Loved.

YB: Feel.

Students: Loved

YB: Feel.

Students: Loved.

YB: Say it louder.

Students: Loved.

YB: I know it is a lot of homework you got to do lot, but please feel loved and make others to feel?

Students: Loved.

YB: We'll continue this, should we?

Students: Yes sir.

YB: Okay.

The class sings: "May the long time sunshine upon you..."

Blessed God out of thy grace and mercy and kindness and all the good qualities we feel your existence and we want to be conscious of it, give us compassion and give us understanding and give us the depth. You made us we got to grow, you nurse us, we got to be, you be with us, so we can be. Give us the greatest gift of 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. so we can understand and live consciously, live in the spectrum of love, understand the radiance of life, help us with commitment and character so we can understand the values of life. We understand the value of money and mayaMaya The creative power of the Creator that restricts and limits. It creates the sense of limitation that leads us to identify with experience, the ego, and things. Because of this it is often thought of as the illusion that blocks us from the spirit. But, as Guru Nanak (see Sikh Gurus) reminds us, you need not be attached to the productions of maya. Instead they can be used to serve and express the higher consciousness and spirit. Maya is simply Karta Purkh, the doing of the Great Being. Maya takes the ineffable into the realm of the measurable. but we don't understand the value of life and we know lord without giving us commitment and character and power to be our understanding will not develop to that point. Help us tonight, help us each day so we can be with you all the time in conscious. Yours' in conscious, SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself.
