...Student: Today's class we'll be discussing ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. , now ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. means prayer. And we'll be discussing generally prayer in Sikh Sikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. dharmaSikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. Dharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. and specifically the Sikh ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. . And I think it's a very good definition of one time in class when class of Siri Singh SahibSiri Singh Sahib Honorary title given to Yogi Bhajan to indicate his role as spiritual leader of Sikh Dharma in the West. His complete title within Sikh Dharma is Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji. when he was explaining that that what is God? And he was saying that God is the Infinity, which is the polarity of the finite, in other words God is the polarity of the man, already within us. So, God is already in us, but the Infinity with us.

So when I said to him, "Well, how can you pray then, if God is the polarity already part of us who do you pray to, you pray to yourself or what, now what is prayer?" And he said, that prayer when you come to GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. or you got to a church, you got to a synagogue and you stand with your hands folded that's not prayer, that's preparation to prayer. And when we come to GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. for service or whatever we are doing that's preparation to prayer, that's setting our mind so that we can come into a prayerful state. So prayer is not that you are standing up and sing oh God help me and I'm in trouble and whatever, or even by standing up and with folded hands but the idea is that prayer is a state of being, it's a meditative state in which the being is merged with God. The being is merged in a vision of Infinity.

If we concentrate with all might on Infinity, you know on that concept of perfection however we have viewed in ourself and just concentrate and concentrate no matter what happens on the outside we just we are so concentrated on that, that state when it becomes to a place where we no longer have to exert any effort but we are just in it, that's the state of prayer. So then what significance or what place does prayer have in our dharmaDharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. ? And if prayer is the total merging of our mind our finite self in the infinite self then that is exactly the purpose of yoga, the purpose of prayer, the purpose of our whole dharmaDharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. is to reach that state of prayer.

The minimum requirement when we come before the Siri Siri Guru Granth Sahib Sacred compilation of the words of the Sikh Gurus as well as of Hindu, Muslim, Sufi, and other saints.

It is written in naad and embodies the transformative power and structure of consciousness in its most spiritual and powerful clarity. It is a source of many mantras.

It is a source of many mantras. is to sit with our spine perfectly straight so that the energy can flow up and we can our energy can rise so that we can become into that state of prayer. So once we are sitting in that state and we are before our 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 we put our whole mind to it and we merge in that vibration and that's the state of prayer. Thus the person who is doing the prayer that's the general prayer, now how prayer starts is in a congregation particularly in a Sikh Sikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. dharmaSikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. Dharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. of course all through the ages men have looked to something to respond to their desires, so we need to think of the force of God being some force which can help us in all time of need, so that's why we say oh God please help me. When in actuality what's happening is we are putting out we are saying to ourselves I need this help what should I do? And since we are asking the question to our mind and then again our own self answers the question. We have to just put the question to our 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 it comes back. Now people used to come to the congregation and they used to say my fields are dry and we need I need funds because I haven't been able to yield crop this year and so some Sikh in the Saad Sangat will get up and say, you know I need this or I need that. And until today even in India, we have gone in India somebody will stand up in the Saad sangath will say,

"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. JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. Ka Khalsa, 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. JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. Ki Fateh"

And they told what they need and then people in congregation after the service is over just go up to him and give him money or whatever they need. And another form that it took in much deeper sense is that people would come into the Saad Sangat because that's where everyone is gathered and we call it Saad Sangat because Saad, Saad from the word SadhuSadhu A holy man. comes from Saad, Saad means the disciplined one, Saad. And Saad Sangat, Sangat means congregation now you can have a congregation of water buffalos or thieves or anything, what you say I am going to the Sangat. No, yes I am going to the Saad Sangat because Saad means the disciplined ones or ones who are trying to become discipline. So just an ordinary person will come to Saad Sangat and because of this vibration 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. being in the Saad Sangat because 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. installed the Khalsa he talked about 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. , that the five and you know they were five Amritdhari Sikhs will be 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. .

So Saad Sangat actually is 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. also and that's why sometime when we bow before 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. GranthGranth Literally: knot: book. Sahib we turn around to the Saad Sangat and bow also because 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. is in Saad Sangat and that's why some of us would come to Saad Sangat and ask them to pray my aunt is sick, my mother is dying or something or my baby was born could you seek the blessings. And by the time of 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 Har Gobind Sixth Guru of the Sikhs. Har GobindGuru Har Gobind Sixth Guru of the Sikhs. sixth 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. he also came into the Saad Sangat and he used to ask for Saad Sangat to pray for him. And by that time the ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. the Sikh prayer became a regular part of the congregational ceremonies and procedures. And then by the time of 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. he was he who formalized the ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. and this particular ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. which we call the Sikh ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. that we do everyday in the morning and after our different ceremonies and procedures is what we specifically going to be talking about today.

For those of you have a nick name or will be good if you got it out then you could follow along with me, there are all six or seven nick names in the front 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. so if you would like to go and get one you can.

Student: (....)

YB: I have about fifteen or twenty I should have bought. Oh no some more too, yes Ek Ong Kar Kaur has some in her hand just someone want?

What I have before me is a few different Ardases, because ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. is very (?) we'll go through it and I'll explain. The first concept about the Sikh ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. is that any one in the Saad Sangat can recite the ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. for the whole congregation it doesn't have to be anybody in particular everyone in the Saad Sangat is able to do this. But they are few qualities about the person doing the ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. that should be noted. One, the person doing the ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. should have a relationship with his own 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 his belief in God should be such that the person who is reading ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. has that belief and concept within himself that he feels that his prayer will be answered. Because if somebody is getting up to do the ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. who is just doing a ritual then naturally he is not vibrating and he is not going to vibrate to God and he is not going to vibrate so that effect comes. So the person who does ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. first one has to feel that he believes in God he is praying to he has to feel that his 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. , his every breath, his soul, his being. And secondly, he should understand what he is praying for and to whom he is praying and what his prayer is. If you don't know any Gurumukhi let us say and you pick up the peace lagoon and you read the prayers and you say, those who were broken by the wheel cut up limb by limb and you don't know what you are talking about, like who is cut up limb by limb what does that mean? What happened, what we are talking about? If we don't understand that then the prayer for us is just you are repeating words. So prayer means like we stated in the beginning that your mind is totally merged with that being unto to whom you are praying, the polarity of yourself. So that's why it is important for all Sikhs and all to know exactly what parts of the prayer. Now the first part of the prayer the Sikh ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. that we are talking about, that we go through.

I'll go through it in Gurumukhi in line by line and also the English translation. And what I am doing is taking this Shiromani GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. Prabhandak committee the SGPC, which is the ruling body of the Sikhs the committee that was formed to make the decisions about our code and conduct. And I am going to take the basic ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. that's written in the current Nith Nem as a basis for the class and I'll also tell you as we go along the variations that can be.

Now the first part of the prayer, the general division of the prayer is, the first part is that which was written by 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. . And I will read to you first in Gurumukhi what that part was and then I'll explain. Now this first part was written by 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. ,

"Ek Ong Kaar 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.

(Punjabi)

In the Gurumukhi that was written by 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. the first part. In English the translation would be now, the translation is ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. 's prayer, Ik ong kaar there is one God, Wahe Guruji the soul, that being 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. , JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. ki Fateh, victory Fateh right, Fateh means victory, Ki it means belong to. So Ik ong kaar Wahe Guruji ki Fateh, victory to that one Creator that wonderful lord, the ecstasy of experience in experience in that God, victory to that vibration. Then Siri Bhagavathi ki sahey, and 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 Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. Gobind SinghGuru Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. is doing is he is calling to God in the form of the sword. He is the first one who called who talked to God in the form of the sword that power that strength of that protection of God as a sword. So Siri means great, Bhagvathi as the sword, JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. sahey, sahey means protection.

Student: Well we can find out.

Okay let's go on so not to burn you down with all this specific Gurumukhi but it is interesting and we should find it out.

Okay when after we remembered our 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. which is basically what we have just done is remembered our 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 then we go to a part of the ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. which calls upon those who have, it's our history.

Now we come into the second part of the ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. we are remembering our history because this part was composed by generations of Sikhs every time an event happened something was added to the ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. , now sometime you can add specific terms or you can generally say these are the most generally you can say is those who remember the name and all our martyrs who sacrificed themselves. But we want to really remember, really meditate on this, it is important because we want to recall our heritage, what is it that brought us to where we are today and this is what we are going to go over specifically now.

Pancha Piyaria, is the five beloved ones, it is those men who on 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. said who will sacrifice for the dharmaDharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. , who will sacrifice for the teachings, who will sacrifice for the defense of mankind who will sacrifice unto the higher 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. , their lower nature and five men one at a time out of thousands decided to put their head what is their head, their body, their physical being, their desires on their hands, because 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. he was total .(?) about 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. he said.

He said, "If you want to come on this path of love, you want to walk on this path of love come with your head in your hand."

This is just a manifestation right, they gave their heads. So from Nanak 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 Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. Gobind SinghGuru Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. this was the form fulfillment of that, of that 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 trying to preach the world. So those five beloved ones BhaiBhai Brother. Dev Singh, Dharam Singh, Himmat Singh, Mokam Singh and Sahib Singh they became Singh.

Then Chouha Sahabzadiya now Sahib, sahib again that respectful term master, Zadi the children, the children of four children means Sahib Zadi is respectful way of saying 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 children and when you have taken AmritAmrit , Aamrit The nectar of bliss; also the ceremony in which a person dedicates their life to the Khalsa. you before you take AmritAmrit , Aamrit The nectar of bliss; also the ceremony in which a person dedicates their life to the Khalsa. and you are Sikh right and you learn about the dharmaDharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. , you are a Sardani if you are a woman or a sardar if you are a Sikh man. But when you become khalsa? When you have the experience of the teachings, you become sahib zadee if you are a woman and sahib zada if you are a man, so you can use that title once you have become khasla, once you have taken the AmritAmrit , Aamrit The nectar of bliss; also the ceremony in which a person dedicates their life to the Khalsa. 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. , so that's why we say, (?) the four sons, means the four sons of 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. , the four children. And those you know the stories of the two elder sons in the battle of trump car when there was only forty against five hundred, forty against five hundred thousand and each five one at a time and the two elder sons of 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. lost their lives in that battle and the two younger sons who were bricked alive and seven and nine years old and when they were asked, "You know listen you can have all the riches of the world, you can have power everything."

They said, "Are you kidding we are the sons of 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. ."

You know it is like you know somebody comes up to you and say, "Hey you want to go to a bar and you can get drunk?"

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

He opened this long secret tradition to all. yogaKundalini Yoga It is a Raaj Yoga that creates vitality in the body, balance in the mind, and openness to the spirit.

You know hey you know I have nice scissors, you want to cut your beard, I can trim you nice shave.

Is the same act with these, (?) what you are kidding I mean you know it is like some outrageous request that they you know saved my life to betray my father.

So we are remembering that 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 that we can imbibe it in ourselves.

(?) now mukta, mukta, who knows Gurumukhi, who knows Gurumukhi what is mukta? Mukta is that one value which has no body and mukta also is the liberated one, mukti jeevan mukti is one who is liberated by a life and that's what a Sikh is supposed to be a jeevan mukti, we don't wait till after we die and go to heaven we are liberated and (?) somebody comes down and dies for us. No, jeevan mukti we die in this life and we are librated and that's the remember the (?) those forty who first they said, I am thirsty, I am hungry I can't take this (?) I am going home so I can get a good meal change my clothes and who needs this water anyway and they all saw when they went home their wives said to them, what you are doing here when 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. needs you to fight we have been getting the word that 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. needs as many people to counter fight them, what you are doing home?

He said, "Well for two weeks we didn't have any food we didn't have any water we are tired."

She said, "Okay you stay here clean up this you can make the dhal you can take care of the kids we are going to fight."

Said the woman, well when they saw that their wives are going to fight instead of them they felt they realized what they did and one great woman...

Outrageous (?) hundreds and hundreds of thousands against these forty and they all died on the battlefield. In the meantime 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. was... came upon the battlefield and saw that these were the ones who betrayed them and you know when they left he said, "If you want to leave you have to tell me in writing that I am no longer your 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 are no longer my Sikhs, you have to write it out." He made them (?) so all right you consciously doing it, you write it down, they wrote it down he kept that piece of paper and so one who was alive Mahaan Singh and 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. found him alive and 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. the story goes that he is just had tears in his eyes, his love for his Sikhs was so great. And he said, "Anything you want I'll give you, I'll grant you at this time."

And he says, "Oh 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. I have just the only request I have is that piece of paper we wrote that we betrayed you would you just please tear that up and take us back as your Sikhs."

And 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. granted his request and they became his liberated ones.

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. .

He said, "You can't cut my hair off, it belongs to 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. ."
