...It is okay if you have to, you have to, but is not going to affect you, if you come in the backseat it's okay. Just get out of this, too much spread.

We are going to do a meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. in which the fear of death is eliminated. I did not recognize how much people are afraid of death. Because once I died myself and I loved it, it was fantastic experience. So since that day I feel rather kind of negative to stay on the earth. So when my horoscope said that at forty-eighth year I was very jubilant you know, I got to go, I got to go and when I was forty-eight it got extended, I was mad. Got stuck with it. But recently my friend took me to a person, he was a chiropractor doctor and he told him, "I want to see that holy man, the way he talks to me."

So this man came and said, "Doctor wants to see the holy man."

He was a chiropractor, so used to adjust me also. Blind man, best boxer, best dancer, has fought two wars, he was eighty year old. So when I went there and I said in my casual way, "Hey doc, what do you want?"

He said, "Well, I need your mercy."

I said, "Talk to me straight, what mercy, mercy business? There is no mercy here. Tell me what do you want."

He said, "I just want to live if you can somehow pray for me and do something hanky-panky, give me ten more years."

I said, "That's what you wanted me to come?"

He said, "Yeah."

I said, "Why you want to live ten more years?"

He said, "I am not ready to go."

I closed my eyes, I looked into the records, I said, "Doc, you only committed eight sins total and you have a bundle of good deeds, those eight bad acts do not even count. You got to go, going to God is going to home. What's the big deal, that's where we came, that's where we go. What are you talking, you are talking about not going?"

He said, "I don't understand what are you telling."

I said, "I am not telling you anything I am just telling you get going. Time has come; it's all over. God wants you back."

He said, "Let me put," he said to me, he said, "Let me put it this way."

I said, "What is it?"

He said, "I am very afraid, to be very frank with you."

And he started crying, I have not seen that man crying like that. I said, "You mean..."

You know, then I realized I was talking from my 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. , he is talking from his 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 we are not communicating and you know, he is afraid to go and I am happy to go, so you know, it is North Pole, South Pole polarity. So as I am a part of Reagan, Reagan is a part of me, but I am a very little part of Reagan, he is a very little part of me. That's why I got all the parts together to get a big part. That's all. That's how it goes. So I said to him, I said, "What do you want?"

He said, "If the life cannot be granted..."

And I said, "Wait a minute! It can't be. No way out."

He said, "Why?"

I said, "These TattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities. In total there are 36 tattvas. Each wave of differentiation has its own rules and structure. The final five tattvas are called the gross elements and have the phasic qualities and relationships of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. , five TattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities. In total there are 36 tattvas. Each wave of differentiation has its own rules and structure. The final five tattvas are called the gross elements and have the phasic qualities and relationships of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. which makes our body, has got so weird, they are crying for... Get out, you can't keep it. You got to go."

He said, "Then I want to die in peace."

I asked to myself, I am 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. , I know meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. but I am not a professional to put people to sleep you know. And this a pretty weird act. The fact of my life is I know astrology but I am not an astrologer, I know palmistry, I am not a palmist. I know meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. ; I am not a meditator. I believe the only thing in your life which can bring your scene together, is 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. . Higher is the sensitivity, better is the 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. , better is the 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. , better you are, happy you are. So I said, "Wait a minute, I can't help you right now. I'll come later."

He said, "Do I have that much time?"

I said, "Granted, don't worry about it."

So I went next week, I said, "Hey, what is your state of mind from my previous conversation?"

He said, "I don't want to go. Give me five years, three years. I know God listens to you, I know you pray, I know you do lot of things."

I said, "Crazy bum! There is no way my prayer can do anything, you got to go, time is coming nearer and nearer and nearer and I am just telling you the truth, I can't lie to you. It's very difficult to see you crying and tears coming of your eyes and you are asking me couple of years and I can give you my years, it's not a matter of fact, it doesn't mean a thing. But you have to go."

And you know, he is blind from so many years, and his dog was there and he said, "Who will take care of this, who will take care of that?"

I said, "Oh my God, this man who in his whole life has done only eight things which were low conscious act." That's what totally freaked me out.

This man who in his whole life, eighty years of life, I am fifty-two, I might have gone more, and I don't mind doing things bad. Who cares? And this is a guy who is very conscious, lived very righteous and he is eighty years old and he has only in his acoustic record eight deeds which can be considered low conscious deed. And rest is all positive, he is not willing to go. There must be something to it.

He said to me "Yeah," he said, "Fear is the worst enemy," and then word 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 Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. came to me, "Nirbhav, nirvair, ek ong kar SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Sat Naam , Sat Nam The essence or seed embodied in form; the identity of truth. When used as a greeting it means "I greet and salute that reality and truth which is your soul." It is called the Bij Mantra - the seed for all that comes. Sat Naam , Sat Nam The essence or seed embodied in form; the identity of truth. When used as a greeting it means "I greet and salute that reality and truth which is your soul." It is called the Bij Mantra - the seed for all that comes. NamSat Naam , Sat Nam The essence or seed embodied in form; the identity of truth. When used as a greeting it means "I greet and salute that reality and truth which is your soul." It is called the Bij Mantra - the seed for all that comes. Naam , 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. ."

You are the creation of one, truth is your identity, karta purkh-you are doer of everything, nirbhav, nirvair, you have to be fearless to become revengeless. If you cannot get rid of fear, you will always be in vengeance whether you like it or not.

"Nirbhav, nirvair, akal moorath, ajooni saibhung, gurprasad."

You are as God created you, you are beyond death and birth, and you are by your own grace, meditate. Jap-meditate.

"Aad sach, Jugad sach, Hai bhee sach Nanak hosee bhee sach."

"Truth was in the beginning, truth is through time, truth is now and Nanak truth ever shall be."

And then 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. spoke,

"Eh jag sachay ki hai kothri, is mein sachay kaa hai vaas."

'This jag, this world of ours, mine, yours, is the manifestation of truth, and truth lives in it.'

We sometime think we lie, actually there is no such thing as lying, lying is mistaken truth. Actually to be very honest with you, nobody wants to lie. Nobody wants to do unconscious act, nobody wants to be cruel, that's all true. But if you look to the reality of life, sometime we in terminology deal with a short-term loan, long-term loan, we speak lies to get rid of situations. We think, 'where were you? Nowhere, anywhere, I was here.' The guy knows there is snow on my head and I must have come out, no, no, I was here... 'I didn't go anywhere, what are you talking about, no, no, I am here.' It's called unconscious interfering personality. It's a disease. When the mind is not meditative it's not developed.

There are three hungers-Hunger of the body, hunger of the mind, and hunger of the soul. If your body is hungry it can only survive twenty-twenty... You are passionate, you are horny, then you need a woman or a man, whatever your case is. If you are not physically hungry, you need food, almost once a day or twice a day. So there are senses and senses have their hungers. They are not counted for. But the problem is when you are physically sensual then you follow the senses, not the 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 is where the problem is. I don't care you jump from the tree or you do whatever you want to do, it is not my problem. Question is in your head do you follow the senses or you follow the 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. ? It cannot be you follow the 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. Monday morning, you follow the senses Tuesday morning, it's not possible, it's not probable. If you are thinking in those terms you are mistaken. It is not on one occasion you speak the truth and you get out, on the other occasion you speak the lie and you tell the lie and you get out.

Normally as human beings we have to have habit as we have a habit to do things, so we have a habit to speak truth. I have a habit of prayer. I have a habit of meditating. This morning I couldn't sit. There was no way, I was very weak, so I told I said, bring a chair then I understood the usefulness of chair. I said, put a pillow behind, put a pillow under, wrap me up and I want to sit and meditate, do my job. But it was such a habit that without that meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. I was feeling I am dead. The sickness was nothing to me, not meditating was worst than the sickness. So it's a habit.

So man creates habits, habits create the man. That is what it boils down to. You become Christian, who cares, how many Christians? You are all jokers. Christian, you don't know Christ 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. , what kind of Christian you are? You are meditating, you are 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. , you have not united with anybody, you just want money, that's all, you are a freak. That's nothing, swamisSwami Master. , yogisYogi 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. , meditators, religion, all is just it is a part of that game which is going on. It can never end; it will never end. So let us not meditate on that but what I was sharing with you this man was not willing to go.

So I said to him, I said, "Now, listen, and tape it."

So I talked to him what is death, what is going, what is 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. , how one feels about God, and what is godliness, what is 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. , what is a fear, what fear can do for you, how fear eliminates the 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 augments the ego. What is ego? E G O ego. G O D God. Take away the E, take away the D, it's go-go. So I told him, life has become where you just go-go.

Some people say when you feel sexual do it, when you feel hungry eat it. When you want to jump from the top of the roof, jump. It doesn't work that way. When you are crazy, be crazy. It is just like buy a Rolls-Royce and don't apply the brake and bang into everybody. Aah! It's my roll coming. Doesn't work that way.

Body of a human mind is a conscious control, strategy, well-planned situation of five TattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities. In total there are 36 tattvas. Each wave of differentiation has its own rules and structure. The final five tattvas are called the gross elements and have the phasic qualities and relationships of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. . If you don't understand that there is absolutely no difference between you and an animal. Absolutely no difference, forgive me for that. Rather animals are better than you. They make a better nest, provide more comfort, provide more engineering, more sophisticated ness than many of you. They hatch their eggs in a better manner with more care than you hatch your children.

In 3HO when I started telling these girls when you become pregnant, hundred twenty days after that when the soul enters you are not supposed to do anything but meditate and be with God so that children will not be neurotics. Lot of people left 3HO, I said, adieus, go, what do I care? Because what is the use of having crying babies all around? Actually the foundation of baby is built in the womb of the mother. To decide what can be a fruit tree is when the seed goes into the earth. Now baby is going to come out and you are going to nurse that baby, forget it. You have to nurse that baby when right in, it is totally under your control. When the baby is out, the baby is not under your control, do you know that? Then baby is an identity. One breath of life when that child takes it becomes identity. So long that child is non-identical and it is in you then you can shipshape anything about it you want. But who cares?

So after seeing this man going away in peace I gave him that meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. which he does and I am glad I went last time, I said, "Doc, how you feel?"

He said, "Heavy, good."

I said, "What is going on now?"

He said, "Ready to go."

I said, "What about that dialysis and all that situation?"

He said, "Forget it. It's all over now. I have accepted to go, I am very peaceful, I am very happy, I am very healthy. I understand, I am not going anywhere, I am going right to my home and rather can you do one thing, cut it down."

I said, "No, first I extend it, now I cut it down." I said, "I am not going to do anything. Neither I extended then nor I am going to cut it down, all I want you to understand, go with the glory, go with the radiance, go with the peace of mind that your Creator, 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. , your seat wants you back. You are a part of the light, and you are going back into that light."

And it was surprising to me seriously ill he was, terminal he was. He was sitting on a chair, he was not lying down anymore on the bed and actually it was his inspiration that I came to this conference, can you believe, when I was driving in the car, I was stopping car on side and I was vomiting. I was going to bathroom almost every ten-twenty minutes. But I said, "I have pledged myself to it, let me do it."

Why? Because I am in a habit to serve and inspire people. I feel good about myself, not that I am a great 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. and great master and great meditator, I have done my PhD in psychology, I am a big commercial, I am this that, I draw people, nothing. Nothing makes me happy. Believe me or not. What makes me happy is I am born in a very rich family and I could have been very neurotic. Normally, people whom the world is available are very neurotic, very egomaniac and according to my structure six foot two, I should be commanding everything. But somebody touched my head and touched my heart and I became what I am today. So I feel God knows where I can touch somebody and somebody can become happy. That's the whole idea behind the whole what I do. I don't count the numbers, I don't write the names, I don't make the posting list what they call it, my whole approach to life is somebody touched me and turned me to be divine. And if I really owe that man any respect let me be among the people, God knows whom I'll touch and they will be happy like me. That's the whole idea. So I don't go through lot of situations, lot of situations book writing, this, putting your calendars, dah-dah-dah, doesn't work in my case. You will be all very glad to know when I came and we had a big exposure and the whole thing, I went to teach a class, you know how many people came to listen to my class? Guess. Me.

(Students' laughter...)

I satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down to myself, I told my driver to put the tape on and the greatest lecture of my life I gave, the basic concept of a liberated man. And he said, "What will happen to it?"

I said, "This will serve humanity for the rest of their lives, don't worry, I am not here to create followers, I am not here to create towns, I am not here to create a 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. , I am here to give people tool to become happy." I maybe very different to you, I believe happiness is my birthright. I don't believe in nonsense. What I want, I get it. And everybody who works with me knows it. I don't do hanky-panky, I do not say would you please do it, I want a glass of water I say water! And somebody who is supposed to give me water better give it or quit. That's the way life goes.

Life in action of godliness if you want to understand the cosmic level is an action and reaction. There is no please in it. Politeness and kindness is good, it's wonderful because we are very insensitive. To make you sensitive one has to be kind, polite, reason, argue and go on and on, you know, everything; diplomatic, appeasing, pleasing, everything. But in the 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. of God it is done, so be it. So I feel we all have to go one day and you have come here to participate in a meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. . And if this nuclear war if we are not going to control then there is a saying that if you die in peace and smile, you go directly to God, doesn't matter what your previous actions are. And I am very staunch believer of that.

All this meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. , chanting of the name doing the whole rigmarole is meant only to have one habit. When death strikes you, you die with a smile. If at that time you die in fear everything is lost whether you are super 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. or super-super 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. or you are this or you are that, whole thing is wrong. The only perfect thing which can happen is that once you are who you are, purpose of meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. and purpose of God and purpose of spirituality is not what you think it is. Purpose of spirituality is not to be good and kind and do this and do that. Purpose of spirituality is train 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 you can die consciously and go back to God in peace. That is straight purpose. You can have a GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. , you can have a swamiSwami Master. , you can have nobody, you can count one and go to God and you can count Ram, Ram, million times and go to God, you can stand on one leg rest of life and you can have four legs around you, it doesn't matter. What matters is, can you become sensitive enough and conscious enough that you can leave the earth planet and its charming surroundings with a beautiful joy that you are going to your real home. That's all.

Somebody once asked me, "Describe marriage."

I said, "It's very simple phenomenon. Can make each other happy. That's a marriage."

He said, "If you cannot make each other happy?"

I said, "It's a battle. It's not a marriage."

"What's a relationship?"

I said, "When we can relay to each other at the same frequency it's called relationship. If we can't relay to each other forget it, we are missing each other."

So to me life is very simple, very ordinary, and very straight because I believe, as a scientist between two points one line is the shortest distance. Therefore there is no necessity of going around and around and around. That's what I said to you in that meeting, when you talk to people talk straight, when you talk to yourself, talk in round, round, round because once you start talking yourself straight you will never talk again because there is nothing to talk.

So we will meditate, there are three breathings, three pranayams, which we will do, which will stimulate in us. The initiation of our left hemisphere of the brain and create a polarity with the radiation of our thalamus and the upper area where pineal is situated. So it is a state of creativity with which we will go through and it will help us to get rid of fear of self, the self, the identity is very important. It's very important. Everything you do in your life is for the self-how do I look, what I wear, what's my dress, what is this and this and you know when I come out I dress very well, when I go in, first thing I do is get rid of the whole thing. Because then I am myself, I know who am I. All this rigmarole has to do for you because you don't accept me who am I, I know that. Nobody has accepted me in United States. Nothing. I have been telling these guys, "Look creeps, 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. is Infinity."

They say, "What? What's that Infinity?"

I have been telling them twelve years. 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. is Infinity, ego is finite, anything done with ego is a self-limiting process. It brings pain and brings tragedies, it brings tragedies, it brings passion, it brings feelings, it brings emotions, and then you get into the rigmarole of whole thing. But if you can just get little above it, the state of no action and no reaction. What are we? We are just bunch of reactors. You said to me, I said to you. Reaction, each one reacts with each one. But can we achieve a stage when we don't react at all?

What is a brahm? All the nonsense we do, if God starts reacting you now we will not be here. So if God doesn't react we who belong to God why should we react? Simple analogy, it's no big deal. If God is not very passionate... You know God can be passionate; all He has to bring a one tidal wave and there will be no California. For God things are not difficult, but God gives us a 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 wants to deploy it and I like to share with you that best part of you. I know the evil is in all of us. But sometime evil is very dormant and 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. is very strong. Sometime 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. is very dormant and evil is very strong. There are no two opinions about it.

So I'll like you to sit straight and put equal weight on your feet, put equal weight on your feet, sit straight and put equal weight on your feet and hold your hands in this way at where your pancreas or your diaphragm is. It's a very simple sitting. Everybody can do it and try not to touch the backseat because you are healthy and you can afford it. But if you have back problem and you need it then it is just like my morning, this morning, I needed it too, but if you can sit straight. And this is the breath, and watch me doing it and you all have to do it. These are my two lips, because of my beard and moustache you may not seem them clearly, but I have two lips. Put all the pressure that you breathe with the whole strength through the two lips and then...

Put all the strength on these three vagus nerves, which are here. Put so much pressure on your lips that breath should come like a wind lock. Try it, try it, it is little jazzy situation. But if you do it right, it will shake you for a while. Come on, come on; hurry up. Perfect, perfect, sit down somewhere. Yeah, this way, this way. Now this breath is called mother PranayamPraanayam , Pranayam , Pranayaam Regulated breathing patterns or exercises. . It's very sacred and it's very secret too, but we are doing it here in San Francisco. That doesn't make it less or more. Pull the breath with such a force like a bullet velocity. As you are sucking in the whole uniform, whole universe, and everything which is available in the breath of life. Out through the nose; inhale through the mouth, closing the lips. Come on, come on dear ones, let us do it.

Sit straight and participate, that is what it is. Keep on doing it. It will make you dizzy but you won't faint. It won't faint you. I know what he is doing. It is just accelerating the left side of the brain heavily and you are not habitual to it, that's the problem. But if you push the breath well after a while the harmony will come in. Yes, breathe through your both lips and exhale through nose. Come on, come on, keep going. We have to do three more minutes so don't stop. In the end you will enjoy it, at this time it is pretty difficult. You got to spare three more minutes of your precious life energy by breathing the way I am telling you to breathe. Pull the breath through your two lips deep in. Please participate with your full 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 know if you will not put gasoline in car it's not going to work. If you will not do this PranayamPraanayam , Pranayam , Pranayaam Regulated breathing patterns or exercises. rest of the thing will not be perfect so you got to participate to get the good result. Go ahead if you even feel dizzy. You need a lot of oxygen to make the brain to come to the center equilibrium.

All right, inhale deep, lock your back teeth, hold the breath, and feel the breath in the entire part of your body, specially the parts which are sick and you will heal yourself, you don't need any healer from outside. Any part at this time you will concentrate will open up to your own healing. Exhale. Inhale deep again, lock your teeth again, concentrate on any part of your body which you feel is weak, which you need to heal. Let it go.

Inhale deep again, lock your back teeth, hold the breath, and with the power of that holding of the breath concentrate on any part of the body or the whole body which you feel is weak. Let it go. Now please breathe through your nostril, make it as long as possible, as deep as possible, as slow as possible, and put your back with the seat. Totally relaxed. Totally relaxed and in that relaxation now start breathing. Very long, through the nostril, normal and exhale through the nostril very normal but make it as long as you can consciously, as slow as you can consciously. See what happens.

Death is not an end in itself. When a person dies soul, instead of the pranic energy gets into the subtle bodySubtle Body See Ten Bodies. instead of the pranic body. It is the same place where in the womb of the mother you have kept alive, so it is no big deal, it's no big difference and when the body, soul enters the subtle bodySubtle Body See Ten Bodies. it leaves the physical body, the time calculation is immediate to seventeen days. It can differ in every case. But when the soul leaves in the subtle bodySubtle Body See Ten Bodies. you go through a cylindrical tube of a gravity action, which is very smooth, very calm, very peaceful. It is just like going to the center of the earth or into the top of the heavens. It happens to all. There is no discrimination in this.

In the end you find yourself very steady and there is a place like a plaza, which is totally lit with white light. In that plaza there is a right hand side and there is a left hand side. On the right hand side and on the left hand side you will find the same friends, there is no discrimination there either. And these friends will call you, come to my side. But the left side is like a tavern or a restaurant, dark fireplaces and people enjoying, making noises and the right side is a path bright, but icy, looks icy. It's not icy. You have a choice to make. Again your choice is there. And if you choose the left side you are stuck what we normally call is hell. It's not a bad deal either. Simply more warm, more confined and very unconscious place. But if you choose yourself to the right take that sunny path which looks cold, you are divine yourself. You need not go to heavens; you are the heaven. It's the same energy from where you have come; it's the same energy where you have to go. It never changes; it has not changed from the time immemorial to today. Eight point four million lifetimes this soul takes to get to this simple phenomenon. And sometimes, many, many times.

I was one day talking to a girl, she said, "What do you think is best in me that you want me to come back?"

I said, "Nothing. Thirty three million light years you meditated for this day, if thirty three million is multiplied by eight point four million, it comes to two hundred and some million life years. That's not a small period."

None of you is here because you want to be, none of you are going to leave because you want to be. Take it as simple as that. You have come here to test 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. . This planet earth is the only one earth planet, which teaches you to test your consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. . And you will do it again and again as you have done it many, many times. People who become conscious they want to look pretty to God; they don't look pretty before a mirror. You may call them weirdoes. you may call them hippy, you may call them dirty, but their soul is sometime brighter than the entire costume you are wearing outside. But still there is a test 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. . You should be inside very clean and bright and outside very clean and bright. Test 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. is, test of truth is you should be inside and outside the same; it's called state of equilibrium. It is called 'Nirvana.' It is called freedom, it is called Mukti, it is called Christ 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. , it is called God 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. , it is called anything you want to call it. There is no religion. Neither you are a Christian nor you are a Jew nor you are Sikh nor you are Muslim nor you a Hindu nor you are a Buddhist, you are nobody. Whatever you are you are welcome. Be so and test yourself that you can go to God in peace, in harmony, and with joy.

Purpose of meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. is not to become great. Purpose of meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. is to make your mind meditative to go to God in a great fashion. Showbiz is a big biz and in this earth show business is to go to God with lot of triumphs and lights and with orchestra and with music. That is the purpose 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. . If you can be conscious that you can leave this planet earth where you are temporary and it is more than nothing to you than a motel. It's not a pretty big restaurant also.

One-third of our population remains hungry in this restaurant and one-eighth of this population is overfed and sick. So it is not a very nutritious restaurant either. Two-third of the people on this planet in this motel do not have necessities of life. They don't change their sheets everyday; they don't have everything what you have. But why you have what you have? Did you plan to be born in America? No. You were granted this. Everything is granted. Question is what you make out of that grant, do you waste it, or you relish it.

Remember life is a grant, life is a period of grant, it is nothing more, nothing that (less), and life means nothing if it's not conscious. Love without trust, life without 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. is a waste of life. You have come here to make life. So please concentrate, meditate and eliminate the fear. One who can rotate this earth can take care of your routine. We who are in this country believe in a simple law, 'In God we trust.' And what kind of trust is that that you feel tomorrow when the sun shall rise, God shall not be with you. And what kind of trust is that when you sleep tonight you feel God is not sleeping with you.

I understand you have developed your mental institution as to be away from God. I understand because of the tribal religions you have always become mentally tribal and you go out and find God outside than you. Well, my friends, God is not outside than you at all, it was never, never it shall be, and never there is a possibility of it. God basically is in you, was in you, and shall always be. Therefore just remember, God was in you, is in you and ever He shall be, then leaving this earth is just nothing but going home. Jesus called it father, BuddhaBuddha An enlightened one; founder of the Buddhist faith. called it Sattva, Nanak called it Sach, Hindu called it Mukti, and every religion has its own way of explaining the same thing.

Side B

... Go. It doesn't matter how rich you are, it doesn't matter how poor you are, it doesn't matter how much power you have, it doesn't matter how much weak you are, it does matter how much God you trust. It does matter. God is an ultimate reality and it is not a polarity. Everything else is a polarity. Therefore concentrate and meditate. Breathe deep on the breath of life and feel the breath. When you feel it in thank God, when you take it out thank God consciously. Bring yourself to a neutral stage of conscious breathing. That is one easiest way of liberation. If you can breathe consciously, most of the people cannot breathe consciously. They breathe unconsciously. At this minute I ask you to breathe consciously, breathe in consciously, breathe out consciously, and thank God for the breath of life. Each thank will be counted for. Even you don't believe in God still you can thank. Concentrate, meditate on your breath. Life is a reality.

Inhale deep, hold your breath, lock your back teeth, take your hands up on your head, and stretch your spine. Stretch it, stretch it, stretch it, stretch it, it's the best chiropractice can do to you what you are doing right now. Stretch it, and let the breath go. Inhale again deep, fill up the ribcage, now lock your fingers, okay turn your hand upside down, palm upward, stretch, like a good boy, good girl, stretch. Pull the spine from the lower and pull it up. Let it go. Now this is the last time and it's a final test of you. I see whether you pass it or not. Inhale deep, really deep, okay, lock your hands and pull it up and pull this time really, honestly up. If you can change the serum in the spinal column by your simple will you have done a best thing to yourself today. That's all it takes. So meditate on your spine as you are taking the fluid from the back of the spine all the way up and upside down just as you wish. Concentrate, it won't take much time, we don't have much time to hold the breath, we got to go. Relax.

So folks, we took totally seventeen minutes. You will never be the same as you walked in and that is meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. . You can never be the same again; this thing will stick with you wherever you go. Whenever you want to renew the power of it sit down anywhere, you don't need me now, and breathe exactly the way you have taken, meditate exactly the way you have meditated, stretch exactly the way you have stretched and you can renew yourself again. As we need the car we need the gas stations, we need the mechanics and we need the workshops.

I am not this or that, I am just a mechanic 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. , and I straightened out here and there where I can touch. Whenever you need to reenergize yourself, to feel free, to feel good, to feel high, I think if you do it very accurately it takes about fifteen minutes. You can spare fifteen minutes in your life and I bet with you, I am willing to bet, and I can afford a bet that in ninety days you will develop a habit. Forty days is 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. , that's what is the beauty of 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. The fourth Guru in the Sikh tradition, Guru Ram Das, was acknowledged as the greatest Raaj Yogi. (See Raaj Yogi.) He opened this long secret tradition to all.

He opened this long secret tradition to all. because I want a particular yoga, I have worked all my life through all twenty-two types of yoga, and I did well. I am a Virgo, I am very what you call it, be specialist type. I found it out this is the best. It takes little time, it remains with you rest of the life, and there is no hassle. I don't like hassles. I don't believe people should come to you; I want to pee where I should go.

I tell you the economy of this country how I look at America. Americans have been trained to stand up and pee. That means their sexual muscles get loose, they become impotent. Then it follows by a mental institution of a divorce because it conflicts with the function of the impulsation of the pituitary and HLC. Then the house gets broken, real estate gets pushed up, new instruments are purchased, refrigerator dah-dah-dah, new home, bah-bah-bah. This whole economy is based on pushing life, beyond human concept and it is done so politely and so underhanded. Can you believe all the money we spend on our hairdo, we can feed America, the poor America three times over, all the money we spend on our makeup, makeup, no reality, makeup, we can feed one poor country in the world ten times over? Do you know how powerful we are? And do you know how unconscious we are?

Once somebody said to me, "You have come from India, poor country. What were you not doing there, you have come here?"

I said, "To take away your craziness and tell you behave, that's all. I didn't come here to make buck out of you. I came here to tell you, you are crazy and I tell very straight."

When I came in the beginning I told everybody, I was in a Hollywood scene; all the actors, and actresses running around crazy, great 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. ! Great 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. ! I collected bunch of hippies, I told them to go on a garlic food, eat fifteen cloves of garlic, I created such a smell, every actor-actress ran away. There is no need of big publicity and big thing because once you are set in your ego nothing can sink in, remember that. Ego is not a bad idea. But it has no value more than a number plate of a car. It's nothing more than that. It's just an identity, simple identity to recognize yourself. Yourself, not to make, what we do with ego is make you to recognize me. No, that's not ego. Ego is I should recognize myself. I am a body, I need little space, I need little food, I need little home, little to survive. It is that identity which God gave me in ego. And it is that Infinity God gave me the 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. . What we are doing, we are substituting 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. with ego, ego with 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 is the mess up, no big deal.

Everybody wants to look pretty. Minus 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. what pretty means. You dress up well, you go to that what is that show where they dance? Your hairdo go away, your clothes (?) around, you don't care, you come out you look like a baboon. No big deal. You have a good party, good evening party; you drink everything on the rock till your brain becomes rock. And then you do not know where are you vomiting, what you are doing, I mean to say what kind of stinking people you are? And you don't take bath at all. Cold shower bath, I am telling from last twelve years please take cold shower bath, it's good for nervous system, it's good for capillaries, it's good for heart, it will save us from everything, nobody cares. You know what you do? You have a French bath, take that shshshusshu... And you will look pretty. I know I am running against odds, and I know I am single person, but I feel happy at least I say what I know. And what I know I say. I don't run around and I want to sell you myself, I am already pre-sold. No big deal. But I think all of you who have been trapped in this room with me...

(Students' laughter...)

Well, it's a trapping; I mean, here I am very normal today; normally I am very abnormal, very direct. Once I asked somebody, "Hey, you don't come to my class?"

He said, "Sir, you speak such a direct truth, it makes me look crazy. I can't afford it."

I said, "Thank you. At least that's a certification I do a good job."

But with you I am little polite, moreover I am not very in good shape. So I have to be polite as an alternative. But I am just telling you this little meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. which I have taught you, which you participated halfheartedly believing, not believing, for fifteen minutes, if you can perfectly do it, it will change you and your destiny for the positive. That's all it takes. One doesn't require tons of money to become holy. You have nine holes in your body; you know them? Two ears, two eyes four, two nostrils six, mouth seven and one is urinary canal and one is you poop through. Peepillapoop! Remember that? It's nine.

If your nine holes are under your control you are a holy man. Whatever comes in through these holes should be consciously filtered, what goes out of these holes should be consciously filtered. That's called the tenth gate. Tenth gate...

Come in, come in if you want to come in.

Student: (----).

YB: Oh, come in, then don't worry, I came in once also.

(Students' laughter...)

It's the same thing; we all do the same thing. Come in move, I don't mind you walk in front of me. Come on, come on ladies there are lot of chairs this side. We are very open today.

So what I am saying to you is this meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. which you have done is very simple, in fifteen minutes, it is fifteen minutes tab. In ninety days it will become, it will enter your habit. What is habit, that means under all changes of environments you can accurately do it. And that's called perfect. That's called Siddha, then "Aasan Siddhojana." Means your practice becomes perfect. And maybe in the beginning you have do it four times a day, six times a day to reach it and then maybe you have to do only once a week, once a while and you will be perfect. And that's how easy life is. And you hustle and I am a neurotic, I go to a psychiatrist, I go to psychoanalyst, what for? I am depressed! There is another American thing, which I have found here, I don't know how to explain, 'I am depressed.' Now what for?

One woman called me, she said, "I am sinking."

I said, "In which ocean you are?"

She said, "No, I am on the earth."

I said, "On earth nobody sinks."

"Oh no, I am sinking, I am sinking in 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. ."

I said, "What sinking in 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. , what's wrong with you?"

It took her forty minutes on the telephone. You know, I am a telephone helper now? Listen to it, all right, go on, go on, go on and forty-five minutes she told me, I am afraid, that's all she was to say. All she said, "Sir, I am afraid."

But it took her forty-five minutes to explain to me, she is afraid and I said, "Inhale, hold, don't be afraid, let it go."

And I said, "How you feel?"

She said, "Better."

(Students' laughter...)

I said, "Why you wasted my forty-five minutes, dummy? You should have said, sir I am afraid. Everybody can get afraid; I get afraid sometime, I am very afraid. I am freaking out."

I know, have you seen that Chinese duck? For which there was a big controversy. Chinese roast their duck in room temperature and let it melt. It's a big controversy. That's what is going to happen to whole humanity. We will just melt. Our skeletons will stand and we will just melt. And we will not be ice cream that somebody is going to lick us, not a bit. And I tell you; you all have been totally blinded and befooled. None of you know the terror of this nuclear war. You can't even under... I get a chance because I have some people who are into it and they are scared. They ask me, "We are creating our own death traps."

I say, "Sure. You are not creating yours, you are creating mine too."

There is no difference. And it's going on and on and on, but you know you need to change that, for that you need power. Nothing happens without ShaktiShakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. . What is the idea of BhaktiBhakti Self-purification, The devotional form of yoga practiced by a Bhakta. ? BhaktiBhakti Self-purification, The devotional form of yoga practiced by a Bhakta. gives you ShaktiShakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. . Why? There is no way, why should we do BhaktiBhakti Self-purification, The devotional form of yoga practiced by a Bhakta. . We do it for ShaktiShakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. . And you need ShaktiShakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. , that's why I shared with you this Uttam PranayamPraanayam , Pranayam , Pranayaam Regulated breathing patterns or exercises. so that you can do it, you can have ShaktiShakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. from it, you can be control of your destiny, you can be control of your mind, and I can tell you one thing; any time you feel depressed just do it, you will come out of it without making a phone call.

There is no need in explaining to me you are depressed. Depression is nothing but a subtle fear of future. When 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. doesn't help you, you get depressed because you get afraid, you feel inadequate, you feel bad. So all we need is a 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. , we don't need friends, what friends can do? Friends can share my depression, but I have to share my depression myself and I have to get out of it. I have to come out of the closet of ego and I have to build my life as a man of God or a woman of God. That's the truth. That's who we are.

Nobody is American, Indian, Japanese, Chinese, it happened to be certain longitude, that is a tantra. Longitude and latitude we were born. 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. , sub 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 supreme 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. , when sub 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. develops patterns then conscious and supreme conscious cannot unite and we get all these bizarre things-fear, depression, this that.

So I am trying to share with you a simple method, fifteen-minute method everyday, you don't need mantraMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind. Tra-ng is the wave or movement of the mind. Mantra is a wave, a repetition of sound and rhythm that directs or controls the mind. When you recite a mantra you have impact through the meridian points in the mouth, through its meaning, through its pattern of energy, through its rhythm, and through its naad - energetic shape in time. Recited correctly a mantra will activate areas of the nervous system and brain and allow you to shift your state and the perceptual vision or energetic ability associated with it. , you have not to pay me anything, and you don't have to call me either. Just do it wherever you are and do it till it becomes your habit. You will be happy, I'll be happy; somebody shared with me, which made me happy. I shared with you. But still it's a matter 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. , you want it or you don't want it. Choice is just like death plaza, which way you want to go? God has given you freewill. I recognize that.

So thank you very much, now don't waste your time, there are lots of other programs, you go ahead, and I'll go to my hotel and rest. Macho Gracias!

(Applause)
