Tonight I have a very unique experiment to do with you, guys. I know as a psychologist and I am the only one in United States, none of you could do that. The communication plays a most vital part in anybody's human life. Mostly seventy percent you are, your talk is unconscious. And out of hundred, second ratio is that about sixty percent your communication is purposeful. You have a aim, you want to achieve something. So that is sixty percent, that is another category. And thirdly, your approach to another person which is eighty percent out of a hundred, third category, you want to impress, you want to control and you want to be acknowledged. These are the three main categories of human talking. Unfortunate.

You have never learnt to talk to know each other. You do not have a rapport of the same frequency. You do not have the strength to acknowledge. Not the character but also the characteristic of another person. Three things. And you talk, all you get is a reaction and it's called angry and it's called divorce, it's called rejection, it is called cat is out of the bag. All it shows is your mental bankruptcy. Sad to tell you that, but that is a common disease.

Communication is a gift to know, communication is a gift to understand, and communication is a gift to realize. If you do not use communication for these three things, you better shut up and don't talk. I don't care what religion you belong to and I don't care what your picture look like. But ninety percent, you blow the situation away, just by forty words. The impact of forty words on another person is so heavy, you can never recover it. You might have understood some people saying, 'ha, yeah, there is something wrong. Something missing. Um, I can't pinpoint, I can't figure it out. We had a good time, we were all fine, but...' That big but, says is, if you would not have behaved that way. And whenever unconscious 'but' comes in the communication, the subconscious animosity grows multifold. This is also a problem between management in businesses, in friendship, in relationship, in wife and husband.

What I want to tell you is that our communication if not properly managed, causes a stray effect. It withers away something. It doesn't nurture.

If you think by hollow, shallow promises and words and flowery situation and romantic and love stories and all that, you can pass the time. You can make the situation convenient and happy. You can let your juices go. But in the long run, no. You can cover not to be nude for a while, but it won't last. You use your language to cover your faculties of defeat. You don't use your language to enhance your prosperity of success. That's why you don't talk truth. Because truth is simple, straight and with a smile. You don't have to remember it, you have to say it, you know it and then you have to live it. Because it is so simple, you make it so complicated. And then you mess yourself up in the end.

You all die of your own entanglement. And your life suffers because of your own entanglement. Communication is a one of the best art God gave you as human and that can make you the best. And worst of all is that you can't talk to yourself. That's the worst. Three things you can't do. You can't listen to yourself, you can't talk to yourself and you can't be yourself. Therefore your entire communication is totally phony. Some get caught one day, some get caught month after, some got six months later, some can never get caught.

You know how sad we are? Birds talk to each other, animals talk to each other, stars talk to each other. Every psyche is complete and interlocked except human. Human psyche is free and that is where you mess up.

Did I do my PhD, right?

You helped me. I am grateful for that, I acknowledge. That's why I got it in six months, not in six years.

I don't think anybody among you wants to be unsuccessful. And doesn't matter what you say, you will be lying if you say you are successful. I can say it without even asking question.

I have dealt eighteen years with the underworld, all criminals. Professional, perfect. One thing I have found in those eighteen years, if a criminal says 'this will happen,' it shall happen, doesn't matter what he has to go through. A civilized person say, 'this will happen,' it will never happen, doesn't matter, how strongly he says it. It's a very funny experience. And not one day, two day, eighteen years in a row.

Once the south east Asian mafia decided they will not shoot me and they conveyed it to me. But they asked me one condition. 'Don't provoke so bad that some nut among them may forget it.' I am alive here, I am talking to you today. Normally my job has a average age of two to three years. Some mistake may get you, or you get them, something like that. Unheard of. They gave a word, they kept it. I asked them one day, when I was going to resign and leave for Canada, I said, "You guy have been very nice, I want to know something, why don't you shoot me, there were so many times. I exactly want to know. Just for my satisfaction. Was I so good? Was I not a good officer? Wasn't I doing what I was supposed to? What was it?"

They said, "No, you always kept your word and you always was a human. You are a harsh justice. You are wrong kind of guy even to let live one day for as far as we are concerned. But you kept your word. We thought it is much better to deal with you than anybody else. Killing you mean another will come. So we wanted to let you live. At least you are harsh but you are just."

What I mean to say is, sometime your body language, your actions is also a communication, which majority of the time we don't know. It's not that you have to write love letters and pages ... Your actions, your thoughts, your projections and you characteristics speak for you and your character speak louder than you. That's which you acknowledge to fail. What you say doesn't mean anything. If it's not supported by your commitment and character, better not speak. And it's a very funny. We are two hundred over year old nation, we are the superpower in the world and there is no school for Lingua, communication, projection, frequency, measurement. (Laughs) Can you believe that? We don't teach our children.

I saw in India, there is a very funny thing they do. They call it a spelling hour. Actually, everybody can spell the hours, spelling hour is not difficult. But actually they tell you how to pronounce your thoughts. It's a very strange situation.

First of all, you don't have enough vitality to capture outside virtues, second, you do not have a vitality in your communication to attract the virtues. With two major handicaps, God bless you, how you live. You must be very superhuman.

So tonight, I thought I will deal with you in my first lesson today. Vitality through the words for virtues. It's nothing new. Once a while, I go aside and teach NaadNaad The inner sound that is subtle and all-present. It is the direct expression of the Absolute. Meditated upon, it leads into a sound current that pulls the consciousness into expansion. Yoga. It is just exactly that. I am very qualified to teach that. Unfortunately, I learnt from a great Master.

I think if I am right, you have been given some papers typed, is that true?

Students: (----)

YB: Now this is a special, I decided this is a special workshop I am going to do today rather than charm you with a few words and go through it and then give you little exercise. Turn you high and say, 'Get up, you come tomorrow.' You know, that's not my version today.

Today I wanted to do workshop which tell you how stupid you are and why you are so stupid and it's not necessary. It's a direct confrontation. Normally I don't do that. I am very wishy-washy, if you really want to know me. Oh, it's out of compassion, what I can do? People talk to me, I know they are wrong, I have no eyes, I just see an 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. , I know they are lying and, everyday I work for it, every minute of it. And then I have to put up a smile, ha, ha, ha. "I mean, you are a great son of mine, you are perfect daughter." God knows what they are. Daughter is a slaughter, son is just a gun. But still I have to go through it. That's my profession. It's a fatherly, grandfatherly profession, you know. It fell on my neck, I can't get out of it. It's like a Shiva who has a big snake around his neck. What he can do? That's his decoration. So, I am a man of God, I can't refuse anybody. And normally I am not supposed to. Once a while, yeah. You know, I yell and scream only those who I love the most. That's very personal to me.

When I am nice and convenient, forget it. I just want to get out of that person as fast as I can. It's a very reverse situation with me. I am very perverted that way. If I am just in love with you, I will shatter you with not a shatterer has been made so far. I will tear you into pieces, put you together, kick you, ask you to go face it, that's the way it is. That's number one. That's when I am in love. When I am human, I'll logic, reason, convince you. When I think it is worthless, I will be very sweet, romantic. I'll recite poetry. Then I am doing the deadliest weapon, which is the last of all, lift your spirit, so that you can feel you are human. Because, I already know your psyche and frequency is not going to move you, neither with reason nor with logic, nor with confrontation. It has to be nurtured and, and be alive. Then I transfer my own self into you for a while so that you can survive for the next fault. And that's what a Mahan TantricMahan Tantric A Master of White Tantric Yoga. This title and function was bestowed upon Yogi Bhajan in 1971. There is only one Mahan Tantric alive on the earth at any one time. is, that's what 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. is. That's what a teacher is. He dies so that they can live. He goes through the pain so that other can see the pleasure. He lives in darkness so that somebody's eye may not get hurt. It's a very difficult role. But that's a role.

Everybody has to have his own model, own model role to play. I play very domestic. Normally the role I am in, it should be non personal. I decided when I came to America, I am not going to play non personal. I see the shit, I am not going to say it, it. That's why when I was teaching in UCLA I named God like that.

He, she and it. 'Heshit.' They told me, "What is it?"

I said, "You tell me that I can't use the word God, so I call Him Heshit."

"What that mean, Heshit mean?"

I said, "It's a He, She and It. Put together, it's my own word, I coined it, I pronounce it. What's wrong with you? My student know what I am saying."

Whatever you speak, foul, vulgar, negative, at that time you are free. When you speak polished mannerful, decent, fine, you are conscious. When you are very mannerful, delicate, which you should be, non offensive, attractive, you are performing. When you don't talk, then your psyche moves. When you talk you move. But when you listen, you win. When you obey, you are victor, when you command, you are achiever, when you speak you are impressive, when you meditate you are powerful, when you pray you are humble. These are all few facet of your existence. They are handy.

But tonight, I want you to experience something. These affirmations are mine. Their permutation and combination is according to meridian points on the upper palate which shall stimulate the hypothalamus. Hypothalamus will react and act with the glandular system and move the pituitary from inside, not from the outside. Therefore, there is no breathing involved with it. And moment the pituitary will be forced to take a certain psycho analytic movement of its own secretion, it cannot then command the glandular system. It will affect the glandular system. And it will change the radiation cycle of the pineal, that little medical stone in the brain. And this is the science of the NaadNaad The inner sound that is subtle and all-present. It is the direct expression of the Absolute. Meditated upon, it leads into a sound current that pulls the consciousness into expansion. . I said it because I said so. And you will experience it.

Please read those words of the paper, put it before you as you are in a symphony. Now this is a orchestra house, you have to put that before you, so your eyes, optical nerve is fixed. You can't put it on a ground. It has to be before you like this, as you are looking at it. Concentrate, just follow the rule and just see what happens. No big deal. If you don't participate, it's fine with me. I am not upset. If you want to participate, then you take that paper, put it before your mouth, almost where your eye level can just catch the lining.

Does everybody have the paper? Who wants it?

We are short?

Student: (-----)

YB: You mean more people came to class than expected? Wow.

What happened? All right, those who know the word should sacrifice and give those who don't. That is a adjustment.

Yeah, yeah, give those who do not know the words. Come on, yeah majority of you know the words and plus we are going to sing. But optical nerve and those who do not have the paper, presume you have a paper. You have to fix the optical nerve to make the pituitary be directive, not negative. If pituitary is off, it's not focused. That's why, when we meditate, we look at the tip of the nose. If pituitary is off, then anything what you are doing is one third done. Two third mind will run around, wander. We don't want the mind to move. You want the mind to control. And with the optical nerve you can do it. Moment the optical nerve is locked on anything within the range of the slight of the nose, you are in control. That's the one first principle.

Secondly, don't sit leaning or moving. Sit comfortably whatever angle you choose of the body because that angle has to defect the lining of the nose. You have to go with it. Correct? Now, set yourself and just think it's a musical concert and you are all part of that symphony. And you are all going to utter those word as it is and the director of you is 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. .

That man with a sticker, um, um, um, he does that. That is 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. . Just think you are moving with the rhythm. We will play the tape and you just do it. Time for this is already marked, I won't pronounce because sometime, you feel itchy. You'll feel itchy in-between. When you cross between seventh and ninth minute, you will be in trouble. Total communication capacity of a human is fifteen minutes. Not a minute more. Sixteen minutes he wants to hear something different. Mono dialogue doesn't work. That's how our brain is made. Come on now, without error, Siri Ved.

(Music tape, 'Dev Saraswati...' is played)

YB (Talks over tape): If you have no paper, put your hand before you just as a paper.

Concentrate, concentrate, you are doing wonderful.

Keep looking, don't move. You are entering a irritation zone. Next three minutes will be difficult. Concentrate.

Use the power 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. so speak and utter.

You are doing great, little more help will do better. Concentrate deeper.

SIDE - B

(The tape continues)

YB (Talks over tape): Eyes tightly close.

Both hands on the heart center.

Inhale deep, deep, deep, hold the breath.

(The tape stops)

Hold it tight, concentrate. Pull the navel in. Concentrate. Exhale strongly. Totally. Inhale deep again, deep, hold it tight, with a power let it go.

Inhale deep again, deep, hold tight, pull the navel in. This is the last chance folks. Pull the navel in. Give your liver the break. Steady, steady, steady, now let it go. Relax.

First time in United State, we have practiced NaadNaad The inner sound that is subtle and all-present. It is the direct expression of the Absolute. Meditated upon, it leads into a sound current that pulls the consciousness into expansion. Yoga through English and basic Sanskrit versions. The account was complete, the frequency was 2.7 and it will affect you whether you like it or not. Simply you are required to participate, result will be definite. You will find tomorrow your way of speaking will change.

Thank you. Now sit down.

The power of the person is in the word. If word is coined properly and projected properly and it zeroes properly, victory is sure. It is true, 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. Guru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. said,

'Akhri NamNaam , Nam The manifested identity of the essence. The word derives from Naa-ay-ma , which means "that which is not, now is born." A Naam gives identity, form, and expression to that which was only essence or subtle before. It is also referred to as the Word. Akhri Salah, Akhri Gian Geet Gunn Gaa, Akhri Likhan Bolan Baan...'

All that is true. The Bible said 'In the beginning, there was a word, word was with God and word was God.' Our relationship, our understanding, our logic, our reason, our approach, all is based on our communication. The word we use, how we use. One slip of the word can make your career upside down. One slip. They say, the tongue of the sword can be stitched and healed. But the cut of the word can never be repaired. Cut of the word is like a crack in the mirror. It's the most powerful power. You must understand what word can do. With a word, we pray, you bring God out. With a word we meditate, we bring God to us. With a word we attract people. With a word we keep the relationship, with word we plead guilty, with word we plead excellent with word we got off the hook, with word we will get into the hook. Our W O R L D is W O R D. (spells in a loud voice).

W-o-r-l-d is there, w-o-r-d makes it for us there. I have no doubt about it. If somebody thinks, imagines and feels otherwise, he is a nuts. Makes no sense. Your every word spoken, every thought, thought, every projection made has become a Akashic record. That becomes your balance sheet to decide what you'll have and what you will lose. So powerful is that power. One word can break a heart. One word can mend it. It's very funny.

Once somebody was saying, "Medically I cannot have a child."

And somebody said, "In nine months and seven days you shall bear a son."

It's all words. Some word said, "I can't have a child." Some word said, "In nine months and seven days, you shall bear a son." And somebody said, "Sun is in the sky," and somebody said, "That son is in your womb."

Nine months and seven days later, there was a son walking on two legs. It has the hanging symptom right there. And somebody said, the sun from the Heavens, is on the Earth. The other word said, "I don't believe it." Somebody said, "Believe it, it will shine like a sun. Don't believe it, you and your future shall be doomed." And those words became prophecy.

Word is poetry. Word is relationship. Word are sensual, sexual, words are inspiring, elevating, words are wisdom. After all, God is a word.

Today you have learnt the first lesson. Feel it yourself, you exactly did it fifteen minutes and three and a half minute plus, excluding the time of interlock exchange in the tape. Majority of you ninety nine percent did it right.

Now, you can sit and close your eyes and feel yourself for few minutes how rich you are. And have no thoughts. Just concentrate on you alone. Your arc line is that shining platinum color, you can totally stop the intellect releasing thoughts. Now let the thought, peace come through you, peace, tranquility, calm, quiet, deep, infinite.

Peace, calm, quiet, blissful, beautiful, deep, tranquil, tranquil. Tranquil, is opposite of tyrant. Tranquil, tranquil, calm, calm, quiet, calm, calm, quiet, tranquil, peaceful, deep, happy, happy, great, great, grateful, full, great, full, grateful, peace, calm, quiet, tranquil, deep, vast, great, full, Infinity, Divinity, knowledge, happiness, prosperity, prosperity, vitality, virtues, virtues, virtues, vital virtues, vitality, vital virtues, peace, peace, peace. May the long time...
