... My head, so you know thereafter sent AurangzebAurangzeb Moghul Emperor of India in Guru Gobind Singh's time. the emperor to (?) he had such a turmoil to go through. In our history of Sikh Sikh Gurus In the Sikh tradition there were 10 living Gurus and one Guru, the Shabd Guru - the Word that guided and flowed through each of them. This succession of 10 Gurus revealed the Sikh path over a 200-year period. They were (in order) Guru Nanak, Guru Angad, Guru Amar Das, Guru Ram Das, Guru Arjan, Guru Hargobind, Guru Har Rai, Guru Har Krishan, Guru Teg Bahadur, and Guru Gobind Singh. The 10th Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh, passed the Guruship to the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, which embodies the writings, teachings, and sound current of the Gurus.

Through his prayers what good happened are good, which you call miracle happens are unbelievable though you are all (?) today. And when...

Guest: If he says such things (?) for instance you said I won't leave you if you slap me on the cheek, I'll slap you back for worse. Did they teach (?).

Yogiji: Yeah.

Guest: But you don't follow it.

Yogiji: No, no, we follow ten aspects of life, whereas 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 will walk twelve miles to get the water and will walk on back steps so that there may not be back towards 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. and bring the water to bathe him. So twelve years he continuously did this service and each time he was given a turban to tie, so he tied the turban over turban over turban and when he was given Guruship, he was to take a bath and it was found out that in his head there is a puss and it's very unfortunate state of mind and 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 Angad Second Guru of the Sikhs. AngadGuru Angad Second Guru of the Sikhs. himself called him and he said, "What are you doing? What you did?"

He said, "Lord, you told me tie this turban, you never told me remove first and tie the other one and I tied it..." and there 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 Angad Second Guru of the Sikhs. AngadGuru Angad Second Guru of the Sikhs. became so happy, he said, "Amar Das, whosoever shall not find a place if shall take your name, he will find the place with God." He gave him blessing, blessing, blessing. In seconds everything got cured you know there was nothing big deal about it and it was such a happy symbolic service to which everybody is proud. It was at 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. where he said, Miri and Piri. Unto God but Thy shall protect thyself in the name of God.

Guest: Gobind Singh?

Yogiji: No, Har Gobind.

Guest: Oh Har Gobind!

Yogiji: And seventh was householder, calm and peaceful, eighth was young, innocent nine year old and he healed the entire population of the city and he took away the entire disease on self and he gave his body and the whole town got saved, Delhi, town of Delhi at that time. It had small pox and plague and 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. , they came 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. and they said, "You know we can't even lift the dead."

He said, "Why to lift the dead? What do you want?"

He said, "Well, people are dying."

He said, "All right," he lied down and in couple minutes he had all the small pox on him and plagues in his things and everybody in the town got up. And he left his body. And that... still that GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. happens and it is written in the emperor's own hand. This is what the...

Guest: Would you call that a miracle from God?

Yogiji: Yeah, we don't believe man does anything, so God does everything, man only can pray. And he satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. in prayer that's why he gave up his body.

Guest: The emperor's hand, Akbar... who?

Yogiji: Yeah, it was the time of JahangirJahangir Moghul Emporer of the India at the time of Guru Arjans martyrdom. . He called him to see him and he came and at that time Delhi totally broke up in the... I mean to say whole everybody was done.

Guest: (?) suffered, I am told (?) I have no idea.

Yogiji: And 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 suffered to the extend of... history of martyrdom stops at the seven year old son 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. and nine year old Baba Fateh Singh and (?) Singh you know they both were captured. And they were given every situation and they didn't give in, so they were bricked alive. You know brick by brick, brick by brick and they just smiled. They didn't care, (?) what do you mean; death doesn't mean anything to us. So basically in Sikh religion death, sacrifice, service, that's why our LungarLangar , Lungar Free kitchen associated with Sikh worship service. , we don't have a congregation without food. We must feed everybody. And all sit equal. Nobody sits separate.

Guest: And it's a free kitchen.

Yogiji: Free kitchen.

Guest: That's a marvelous idea.

Yogiji: Every, every...

Guest: Not a mark of poverty, that's a symbol of equality. That's true.

Yogiji: In every GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. , the Church, what you call, we call it 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. -Dwara, GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's house; you can't have a congregation and not have a LungarLangar , Lungar Free kitchen associated with Sikh worship service. , free kitchen.

Guest: What the word Singh is?

Yogiji: Singh means the lion. As lion is among the beast, because lion has conquered every beast, so as a human you conquer your beast, that's what singha means.

Guest: (?) Sehajdaari...

Yogiji: Sehajdhaari! Sehajdhaari means who has not had baptized himself and who has not full hair and everything. Because full hair is just for heavy protein, which we need in our state of ecstasy as you need a heavy water for the atomic energy. You need heavy protein and that comes to you from the hair of your beard and of your head. And that's why in the night we put our hair down and braid them. In the morning we put them up at the solar center.

Guest: Are you vegetarians?

Yogiji: Yep!

Guest: But Sikhs are not necessarily vegetarian.

Yogiji: Well, those you know every religion has (?) principles, so they.

Guest: But there not supposed to be dietary restrictions necessarily?

Yogiji: No, basically we are not supposed to eat meat because urea, urea is very terrible for 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 we are a very meditating religion. So it doesn't go along with that. You know all meat eating animals are disturbed, you never find them sitting in peace and that stillness with alkaline circulation of body, you have to have nine point alkaline in your body. You can't have a acidity in your body and start meditating and create a fuss. We don't do that. And that's why 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 LungarLangar , Lungar Free kitchen associated with Sikh worship service. , which is the tradition is always vegetarian. It's tasty, it's beautiful, whatever you want to call it, but simply it is vegetarian, you can't serve meat there.

Guest: (----)

Yogiji: Equality. Woman is Khalsa now she is a Khalsa, baptized woman among us is exactly equal, she is a minister, she is a secretary general of the Khalsa Council, whatever she is. There is no distinction between man and a woman in Sikh religion as far as spirituality is concerned. They have been...

Guest: (----)

Yogiji: No, but at the time of... there is a one thing, which happened in Sikh religion, which has never happened in anything. 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. when was nine year old 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. Teg Bahadur was killed by the emperor in that onslaught conversion where he went and offered himself, what happened was 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. was installed as 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. Gobind Rai. But after 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. Gobind Rai one day at the Baisakhi DayBaisakhi Day For Sikhs the day of the formation of the Khalsa by Guru Gobind Singh which took place at the traditional festival of Spring (Baisakhi). he came out and he said, "I need a head, I need..."

(?) there were fifty-thousand or hundred thousand people there. He took out the sword and he said, "I need one man's head."

So one BhaiBhai Brother. Daya Singh came first, he said, "Sir, it is your head."

He said, "Come in."

And after a while he came out with a bleeding sword and he said, "I need a second man."

So you know first, second... but five came out. So he took them in and after a while people thought GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. has gone crazy, he is becoming violent, whatever he thought and then five came out as I am sitting before you. So everybody said, "Why should not he offer his head?"

So fear of death 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. wanted to test and then he baptized them. He baptized them into Singh and Khalsa. And after that baptism he asked them to baptize him. So then they said, "We gave you a head, what you are going to give us?" I mean forget it. He said, "I'll give you my entire self."

And they said, "All right, you think seventy-two hours, then we will take care of you if we find you all right."

That is called Sodhana, therefore anybody who comes us to be baptized; we ask him certain questions, 'are you doing it because you want it? Are you doing it because you are conscious of it? Are you doing it because you seek it? Are you doing it because you think you believe it?' You know every question and then we tell, all right, go and think about it then come back again if you need it, it's not that... because you must understand historically we have been persecuted to be converted and we stood conversion.

We don't like conversion and therefore we don't want to convert anybody. Therefore somebody seeks it, it is little difficult. Because we are not that kind of missionary that if people are sick and people are poor, we will go and help them and if they want to be Sikh we like to convert them. No. We go and help sick people and give them clothing and give them everything, and that's it. Nothing beyond that. To us Hindu is as beautiful as a Buddhist is. Buddhist is as beautiful as Christian is because a Christian can come in a GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. and can live there and eat and have fun, and nobody is going to ask them what is your religion! A Muslim goes to Golden Temple and does his Namaz right in the premises of Golden Temple; nobody tells him what are you doing? He puts his Safa, his 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. carpet, he sits on that, he does his Namaz, nobody tells them...

Guest: He better not turn his (?) on the ground so...

Yogiji: Yeah, that is there is a certain...

Guest: They better know the... rather they better know the robes (?).

Yogiji: But also I tell you when they come and those who come there that much they know because the are lot of Muslims who worship the Sikh Sikh Gurus In the Sikh tradition there were 10 living Gurus and one Guru, the Shabd Guru - the Word that guided and flowed through each of them.

Their entire family comes to Anandpur SahibAnandpur Sahib Birthplace of the Khalsa, located in Punjab, India. .

Guest: I won't say we were really (?) I went in and photographed on the Golden Temple and also at other (?) we were invited, come do that by the president and so we will (?) really didn't know and there was no way the photograph without turning away to the camera, I am turning and getting film and things... it's a book.

Yogiji: 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 holy GranthGranth Literally: knot: book. (?) is not a book, it is not a book. We believe it is a word of those, words uttered by those men of God who merge 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. Now there are Muslims peers in that, there are Hindus, there are non-Hindus, there are Sikh Sikh Gurus In the Sikh tradition there were 10 living Gurus and one Guru, the Shabd Guru - the Word that guided and flowed through each of them.

Guest: (----)

Yogiji: Yeah, and he is the only one man in the world who was allowed to photograph also. That is your only privilege.

Guest: Well, I (?) camera off and then...

Guest: And somebody (?) but it's like going up and wanted to take a piece of (?) you go walk up in between, somebody who will see is going to stop you.

Yogiji: Oh traditionally among the entire India population in America we came here when the west was not America. This western part was not America, Sikhs came through the Mexico and they were all known here, California actually belongs to us. Still we have got huge chunks of land in the Imperial Valley and this Sacramento valley and they are all farmers and they are Sikhs from much earlier than even California became part of United States.

Guest: (----)

Yogiji: Oh we fought independent wars from San Francisco. And from British Columbia we took that (?) that warship you know to India to go and fight for the freedom, all the Sikhs were hanged and they were killed because the Japanese government gave the information and British were ready for it and all that. We have used this America for Indian independence for quite a decade. For twenty-five years and we are about eight million people in India, two and a half million to three million around the world, but everybody is very prosperous, well to do. It's not... in America per capita income is about twelve thousand dollars per person.

Guest: And they own all the taxi cabs in Delhi I know that.

Yogiji: Oh transportation. In India Sikhs own almost transportation, all electric work and all machinery. They are highly mechanical, highly intelligent. I mean you give a Sikh just a sketch; this is the part of the car you want to do it, after two hours you have it (?) specification. They are very you know best farmers, engineers, farmers, electronic engineers, mechanical, space engineer, all this atomic energy, though the bosses are still Hindus, but underneath those who work will find them with turbans.

Guest: Oh it's a marvelous treasure of brotherhood in Sikhism. It's really outstanding and a kind of helping, wonderful, robust, wonderful (?) you know.

Yogiji: Saint and a Soldier, Sant Sipahi, the word for a Sikh is if you want to have some definition of performance about a Sikh is it is a Sant-Sipahi, Saint and a soldier blended together in equilibrium, fifty-fifty. It's not this, it's not that. When it comes to work, he is a worker. When it comes to defending, he is a soldier. But the problem is one thing you must understand how peaceful we are, Indian Army has never crossed Indian border, because still we are in majority part of the army and we don't believe in offense. But we are honest to defense. I mean it's very difficult to cross a Sikh regiment, today the Second World War and the free world owes to us. You are America and Europe is Europe and everything is everything because of the Sikh Regiment.

We dug out (?) in Africa like you put out mushrooms because Sikh soldiers were so hard nut that they could chew the trees and still (?) they can hundred and eighteen degree temperature they run the tanks and have no Sun strokes and those were certain elements and in the zero minus twenty, zero Fahrenheit temperature of Germany they defeated the Germans, that was the crushing defeat, which has a history. That's why every American or every European if he knows (?) they are great soldiers. Because when it came to democracy, defense of democracy, at that time actually the Second World War, we wanted our freedom. Twice as people we have been betrayed by the British, they promised. Because Sikh empire was a very successful empire and British took it with a treachery.

Guest: And after they gifted the Kohinoor Diamond and all that stuff?

Yogiji: Yeah, that was a treachery, that was a treachery, and this because prince you know to... they what they said is he should come to London to study and the Khalsa Darbar agreed to it. And once he was in England they usurped the entire Punjab. That was the treachery. And thereafter it was written agreement that when he becomes eighteen year old the empire will be returned, but it was never returned thereafter and then in the Second World War when the British was losing terribly they said if the Sikh regiment under the Patiala and all those state regiment there were (?) states there, if they help at this time to British Empire and if they win the war we will return the empire.

So on that context after every four Sikhs we gave one in the army and they rooted out (?) in the Africa. Totally defeated him. And then the advance of Germany in Europe was terrible and there the Sikh regiments were employed and they because it was very cold and it was impossible for the regiment, from the European regiment to stand that weather. But these are very weatherproof people you know when they get into the battle. So that was a very crushing defeat so finally then we gave in and when it comes to giving you know British showed a different tone. And lot of time that difficulty... after all you must understand we are not a huge people majority we are only eight million. And eight million is not a... not a big number. So but they are very prominent in the sense they are brave, they are prosperous, they are intelligent.

Guest: You think they would really like to have a separate state too?

Yogiji: Yeah, now they have started thinking about that and talking about that. Well, if you look into the prophecy, the Vishwpuran, which is four thousand years written, it is not the time of Sikh religion yet. To that prophecy the religion of Nanak, should start taking ground in the world in twenty eleven.

Guest: Twenty eleven?

Yogiji: Yeah. So there are eleven plus twenty-five more years, yet to come. Oh thank you.

Guests: Thank you very much.

Yogiji: I am willing to accept if that is true.

Guest: (?) danger in which you fix too much emotion and not...

Yogiji: Religion is meant to clarify the emotions as fire is to clarify the butter.

Guest: I missed the beginning of this, what is your (?).

Yogiji: What I was saying is on the path we walk, we first walk with the basic emotion towards that path and as through the emotional experience we walk and walk, our emotions get purer and purer and then we find a devotion. Whereas father says emotions have got nothing to do with religion.

Guest: He didn't say that, no he didn't say that.

Yogiji: Something. Yeah.

Guest: (------)

Yogiji: No, no, I never said everything. I never said everything, I said first initial is crawling, and crawling and walking and running and then becoming a athlete and then becoming a champion. Step by step, because the first scripture in Sikh religion is JapjiJapji , Japji Sahib The Song of the Soul written by the First Sikh Guru, Guru Naanak Dayv Jee. Saadhana opens with a recitation of Japji each morning at 3:40 am. A mantra, poem, and inspired religious scripture composed by Guru Nanak. Japji Sahib gives a view of the cosmos, the soul, the mind, the challenge of life, and the impact of our actions. Its 40 stanzas are a source of many mantras and can be used as a whole or in part to guide both your mind and your heart. , and it has PauriPauri Literally step or ladder. Refers to a particular poetic form used in Siri Guru Granth Sahib. , PauriPauri Literally step or ladder. Refers to a particular poetic form used in Siri Guru Granth Sahib. means step. So you walk step by step.

Guest: (----)

Yogiji: For a child if you don't relate to its emotional aspect you will lose him. That is why today Christianity is losing the young people whatever they call is losing because the preacher, the teacher, he doesn't relate to their emotions. It is it, this is what the Jesus said, you believe it or you don't. You know last night I had the greatest experience of my forty-seven years. When I went to meditate and I talked to her and I said when I speak why these people emotionally react to me? And Premka sitting down very comfortably told me that you don't understand one thing. You speak from the experience level but you are basically a heathen and I accepted her version and...

Guest: Nobody told you that?

Yogiji: Yep, yep, yeah and in the morning when I was meditating I got the same experience, which I got five years ago, which I think was a revelation to me. Five years ago I was meditating, after I finished my 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 don't dream that's the unfortunate part, I can't relieve myself of any subconscious thought but I do get a vision and I got five years ago a huge ball of light, you can't imagine, I can't explain it to you how big and I enjoyed that, I enjoyed that seeing in my self and this morning I exactly enjoyed that, it was much brighter much bigger, and the word came to me, 'blessed are the heathens, they have no limit of the faith' and when she came next morning to me, I said, "Look, something in me I want to share with you, which I am going to share with the entire congregation, that blessed are eye of the heathen who has no faith of limit..." because I can love Jesus Christ better than anybody who claims himself to be Christian.

And I believe that he has done for humanity much more than people even give him his due. But if this is the version of thing that until the non-tolerance that part because history has a effect on Sikhs, but we lost everything in persecution. We as a religion on the top most of persecution... so somebody if slanders a Sikh or somebody pokes a Sikh or somebody insults a Sikh, it is not what bothers a Sikh at all because how worst you can be persecuted when our fifth 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 put on a hot burning plate for five days and five days hot burning sand was poured on his head continuously and he satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. meditatingly and when a Muslim peer came to him and asked him, "If you can't do something, let me do something."

And all he said is, "You have not learnt something that everything is done by God and we are only the observer of the whole thing." and seven year old child 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. when was bricked alive with the nine-year old and brick by brick they will go with the cement you know and when it came to hear to him, he looked around last time he could only turn his neck and he saw the elder had a tear in his eyes and he said, "Are you afraid?"

He said, "No, I am mad, I am angry."

He said, "What for?"

He said, "You came later, you are going first, I am came first, I have to go later, this is how they chose this way." That's all I have to explain to you.

I mean to say what I am trying to explain in the basic, our existence, sacrifice and death we have to give for our existence. But when we had the empire, Sikh Empire at the time of Ranjit Singh, we were absolutely tolerant of everybody. We had not a single record in the rule of those years, not to talk of persecution or even say louder in voice to anybody of any religion. To me I would like to rather than to share with you something I like to share to myself something, which you can explain. This I am the holy, I am holier than Thou, that is a God has created everybody equally in His own image and everything is... because basic Sikh practice are based on GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. .

Sikh religion if you want to call it religion has a very powerful sacred thing in it, which scientifically through the power of instrument can be proved and that is what in the western world intelligentsia likes it and that is the writings of Siri GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. GranthGranth Literally: knot: book. . Sayings of the Siri GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. GranthGranth Literally: knot: book. , which individual reads and the language is Gurmukhi. So the sound track has such a combination that's what I explained to you last night because I was told I am making God complicated. But the only thing, which I understand is that a man of a ordinary walk because there was a one illiterate farmer he came to Siri GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Arjun Dev JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. , the fifth master and he said, "You have said JapjiJapji , Japji Sahib The Song of the Soul written by the First Sikh Guru, Guru Naanak Dayv Jee. Saadhana opens with a recitation of Japji each morning at 3:40 am. A mantra, poem, and inspired religious scripture composed by Guru Nanak. Japji Sahib gives a view of the cosmos, the soul, the mind, the challenge of life, and the impact of our actions. Its 40 stanzas are a source of many mantras and can be used as a whole or in part to guide both your mind and your heart. , and we couldn't remember that, now you have said SukhmaniSukhmani Peace Lagoon; a prayer written by Guru Arjan; Song of Peace. . The essence of giving people happiness, bliss and peace and it is in twenty-four Pauris. Who is going to remember all that long thing?"

And 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, "You want to remember it, you can be blessed with that."

He said, "I have come to you and I can be blessed, what about those who cannot come to you? I mean to say I simply want to exactly know that if I cannot... I am not a learned man, I am not a literary person, how I am going to learn all that beautiful scripture you have said and it's beautiful, I have heard it" and 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, "By hearing it, it purifies the man's soul."

And he said, "Suppose I can't hear it?"

I mean to say he was totally insisting on something confessional and 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, "If you can even read one sutraSutra Section from scripture. , and repeat it, it will work for you."

Entire Sikh religion, which has given a ordinary human being the power to kiss death with a smile and power to become fearless and power to tolerate everybody else and power to defend himself and his grace and thought of living for a Sikh under heavy persecution that life in disgrace is worst than that. This whole phenomenon, I think the strength, I wonder sometime myself, from where these ordinary Hindus and Muslims and Christians and Buddhists and all that who turn, who accept Sikhism, from where they get the strength.

It is from the baptism of the double-edged sword and then I said, "Well, baptism is baptism, but there is a one thing, which I have found here in western world through the (?) not through revelation that any person who recites the GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. and stimulates himself to a very vastness of his spirit..." as I was explaining to you Hallelujah, in Christianity the sound Hallelujah is said in a Nad Yoga exactly does the thing as a sutraSutra Section from scripture. of GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. does. There is a one comparative situation to which I understand, because there are eighty-four meridian points on the upper palate and my friends with beard, we call it Taalu and Pataalu. This is a total science in Taalu and Pataalu. The Earth 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 love and live and creativity and Taalu is 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. of God and ether and whatever you want to call it different names, 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. , Bahaulla, laa-illah, to me it's a sound, now it will offend a Muslim.

I as 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. will offend a Muslim if I ask him you do not know how to say laa-illah. I'll definitely offend him and I know that, because it's a Laa sound and it is a sound, which you cannot speak with a tongue but you have to rotate the tongue with the power of the breath as I was relating last night that in India hardly anybody knows how to create the sound of Om. Om is not a word you can say Om, Om, Om, that's what I was explaining last night, it is a sound, which comes through the Trikuti, it vibrates your entire palate of the brain, it totally... and when I talk about the pineal and pituitary gland and the secretion of the higher HL(LH) secretion in the pituitary to the bloodstream, people think I am imagining sometime because they don't have that experiment we have done.

Whereas we are laying everything what we are doing with the institution in experiment because basically you have to understand there maybe a teeny-tiny skinny person who by no features of his complexity and activity maybe totally very lazy, rejecting everything, freeloader, I went to US, United States Academy of where they train their priests, what they call them Chaplains and the in charge chief chaplain was a rabbi who came to study with us for ten days and then in return he invited me to come and address his group of chaplains, which were Catholics, Protestants and those who are to go on army duty. He wanted me to give them a talk. And by introducing me he said something very beautiful.

He said, "In the course of our time there were beautiful diamonds, gems and rubies, which we spread and got lost into the mud of our unconscious and a man came from India, he picked them up, took away their flaws, clean them out and has made them bright and brilliant that even we are proud of it, somewhat jealous that he took away from us, somewhat proud that they are very radiant and shining. So I present to you so and so."

And I later on in my conversation I told him, "Rabbi whatever I did, why don't you do it too?" I mean to say what is there the limit? Because when I met Sardar Swarn Singh, our defense minister, he was foreign affairs minister, he came to see me here in personal talk, he said to me, he said, "Yogiji, there is a difference between spiritual world and political world, because in political world you have to be one defense minister, one foreign minister, one prime minister and you are always ready to be cut down or pulled down are done, but in spiritual world there is no limit, you flow your spirit and there are lot of people who can follow you and it can happen." So in the world of spirit or the spiritual world it is Infinity.

Guest: Do you (?) see this here (?) these other ministries?

Yogiji: What do you mean by word (?)?

Guest: That if the... that if (?) motivational force with (?) of Infinity.

Yogiji: True, true, because I basically...

Guest: I had trouble, I hear you separating the spiritual world and the world.

Yogiji: No, no, no, I like to explain myself. There is nothing in matter, form, action, reaction, existence and non-existence, which is not the work of the spirit.

Guest: And the spirit (?) this world to through us, through everything. Not to us, through everything.

Yogiji: I am not willing to limit that I am spiritual and somebody who is persecuting me is not spiritual.

Guest: I can (?) I can give you same (?).

Yogiji: No, no, not only I say it I experienced it. Because when BhaiBhai Brother. Mani Singh was asked to be cut down limb by limb, and the executor took him and he took his first thumb and wanted to cut here, he stopped him, he said, "Wait!"

He said, "What do you mean wait?"

He said, "You are not obeying your duty and you are not doing the right action, it's a wrong KarmaKarma The law of cause and effect applied to mental, moral, and physical actions. Ego attaches us to and identifies us with objects, feelings, and thoughts. These attachments create a bias toward certain lines of action. Instead of acting you begin reacting. Karmas are the conditions required in order to balance or complete these tendencies. Though necessary, karma is not dictatorial or fatalistic. It is the mechanism that allows the finite experience of existence to maintain and stabilize itself. We all have free will and can take actions to re-direct the momentum of a karma. We can transform it or neutralize it using meditation, jappa, good deeds, or intuition that remove your sense of ego and the identification with that past line of action. ."

He said, "You have been ordered to cut me limb by limb. Is it true? Joint by joint."

He said, "Yes."

He said, "You are cutting this three joints in one stroke. You start with first joint and second and third, let me teach you how to do it."

The guy left his axe and ran to the Governor, he said, "What kind of man I am supposed to cut today?"

He said, "Well, you are the only one who can do it."

And he came and he said, "Permit me, I'll cut your neck and get away with it and I don't care they cut me later, I can't do it to you."

And BhaiBhai Brother. Bhai Sahib , Bhai Sahiba An honorary title which means respected brother (or sister). SahibBhai Sahib , Bhai Sahiba An honorary title which means respected brother (or sister). took his other hand and said, "Put the axe in your hand" and he put his own thing and did one, two and three and told him, "Now it is easy, go ahead.

I don't believe in my whatever humble belief or great belief I have got that one who is persecuting me is not persecuting me with the spirit of God and my prayer at that time is give me the spirit to stand that persecution in Thy grace. I think cause and effect is the game of the world. For me a Christian, a Christian who has Christ experience, conscious experience is equally a beautiful Saint as a Buddhist in his experience or a Sikh in his experience or a Muslim in his experience. But question is frequency of level at what height you are flying, if you are flying at a lower height things will look big to you on the Earth, if you are flying at a very high height, there will be nothing on the Earth you can look at and I attribute to one thing, which in Sikh religion exists, is the power of the word, power of the word and how you recite the word. I in my experience the entire Sikh Religion is based on that one center. The power of the word and that's why... yes?

Guest: (----)

Yogiji: Sure, sure.

Guest: How does that work out in a typical (?).

Yogiji: Yeah, that is what reciting of word. Now JapjiJapji , Japji Sahib The Song of the Soul written by the First Sikh Guru, Guru Naanak Dayv Jee. Saadhana opens with a recitation of Japji each morning at 3:40 am. A mantra, poem, and inspired religious scripture composed by Guru Nanak. Japji Sahib gives a view of the cosmos, the soul, the mind, the challenge of life, and the impact of our actions. Its 40 stanzas are a source of many mantras and can be used as a whole or in part to guide both your mind and your heart. , JapjiJapji , Japji Sahib The Song of the Soul written by the First Sikh Guru, Guru Naanak Dayv Jee.

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. of the JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. , JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. means the soul, the self. Now GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Guru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. recited this forty Pauris, forty steps, and a Sikh is supposed to get up early in the morning in the very primal hours say about two thirty or three O' clock and clean himself and take a cold shower. And cold shower is stimulant of the bloodstream, and cold shower has no other meaning except that but if you have cold shower I say medically, you say sickness of your sinus, and sinuses are very heavy situation. If your sinuses are clogged up you are done and the Sushmana, the third nerve center, the central nerve center is related to sinuses in a human being. Because I'll feel somebody who meditates without cleaning his bowel is doing a more injustice to himself than any justice because it can cause very bad side physical effect.

So according to simplicity or the complexity of the religion is that you shall rise early in the morning and shall give one tenth in charity of your time and time is two and a half hours. Fool rises with the Sun rise; you in belief of God shall rise earlier than the Sun rise. And then you shall recite the GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. . A Sikh religion in the yogic terminology is called Sehaj Yoga, the easy path of union. And the only Sikh, which I find in easiness is that those words are commuted, they are combinations, though they all mean to draw your attention towards God, suppose this PauriPauri Literally step or ladder. Refers to a particular poetic form used in Siri Guru Granth Sahib. , now if we see somebody bewitched with a devil, you know spirit and the doctors call the hypnosis and hypnotic state reveals us that he is possessed by a spirit. I have no feeling that I can't relieve that person because I know the combination of these words shall make him individual self and the sutraSutra Section from scripture. goes, PauriPauri Literally step or ladder. Refers to a particular poetic form used in Siri Guru Granth Sahib. , it says again a step.

"Jiththey Tu Samrakh, Othey Koi Na."

Wherever Thou is there is none else. Now these are the literary meanings, I can give it side by side. But I don't worry whether I know the literary meaning of it or not but in my yogic conception along being a Sikh I know that there are two Gufas, two caves in a human being. One is called the Bij Gufa the other is called Gian Gufa. Bij Gufa is the yoni the organ of the woman in which seed is laid and it grows and brings another Divine being, and Gian Gufa is what they call is the mouth. The cave of the mouth, in which the lingam is the tongue and in that lingam is separated. So it is a union and separation, Yin and Yang, law of polarity is the same thing again. So in this Gian Gufa, the cave of the hole of knowledge whatever you want to name it in your terminology, there is a upper palate, we call it Taalu, it has eighty-four meridian points, which are directly connected with your rest of the workshop or experience we call it for you and these words are just those combinations, it has got nothing to do but they all...

Guest: What do you mean by that the words make your tongue touch those points?

Yogiji: Yeah, you rotate it as you can experience right now, say the word Maa.

Guest: Maa.

Yogiji: Maa.

Guest: Maa.

Yogiji: Say it again.

Guest: Maa.

Yogiji: All right now don't touch your lips and say the word Maa.

Guest: I can't do it.

Yogiji: Aaah, so it is that combination when you say word Maa now the most sacred word, which John didn't write in the Bible according to my entire study is that Panch ShabadShabad , Shabd Sound, especially subtle sound or sound imbued with consciousness. It is a property or emanation of consciousness itself. If you meditate on shabad it awakens your awareness. . Panch ShabadShabad , Shabd Sound, especially subtle sound or sound imbued with consciousness. It is a property or emanation of consciousness itself.

It is a property or emanation of consciousness itself. If you meditate on shabad it awakens your awareness. , the word, the word "In the beginning there was a word, word was with God and word was God." But I have found it out through the yogic concept and then I found the same combination in 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, Siri GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word.

I say it didn't come to us, atom was there, but we have to divide this atom to find the atomic energy. Then I went into the yogic scripture, because Yoga is the basic science of unity of finite with Infinity and then I found it out those twenty words.

Side B

Yogiji: Combination of five words. Sa Ta Na Ma. Aa is common. And then there are four great seals of Yoga. Maha MudraMudra Mudra means "seal." It usually refers to hand positions used in meditation and exercise practices. These hand positions are used to seal the body's energy flow in a particular pattern. More generally it can refer to other locks, bandhas (see Mul Bandh), and meditation practices that seal the flow of energy by concentration. , and Maha MudraMudra Mudra means "seal."

So I found it exactly fits in and it's a part of those twenty sounds.

Guest: What you are telling is (?) you are just separating of a connection between Yoga and Sikhism... that (?) Sikh people.

Yogiji: No, no, no, it was there, I simply searched it out and then I went to them to confirm my view whatever I searched. I went to those Sikhs like Nirmalas, who hold the mystique experience of the Sikh religion and I found them they were practicing, so it was no discovery of mine, I was surprised...

Guest: You found those connections...

Yogiji: Oh yeah you know it is what I say first I became emotionally involved in finding where my roots are and I have found in Christianity one thing. When a Christian feels like converting somebody he is very kind and very loving. But otherwise this feeling that I am holier than Thou or something, which I call is separism is very heavy and somebody was explaining to me it is western and I didn't agree with that whether it is western or eastern but I have found it out that God the concept of my God or I have found my God is very individual or it's God of a section. The God of Israel, the God of the Jews, the God of the Christians. To Nanak 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. , God is just the God, Ek Ong Kar. The one Creator, now the sound of Ek Ong Kar I sometime understand why with Ong he added Ek and to me revelation is very simple. Ek Ong... it immediately goes into the Trikuti and it is the easiest way to get that experience, which as meditative mind I may get in twenty years.

Guest: (?) we meditate every morning.

Yogiji: Yeah.

Guest: We just reduce the same (?).

Yogiji: What is the 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. ? 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 a simple... scientific explanation of this will be you are hit within one day... let us give you the exact number intellect thought wave. Premka, can you just figure it out? One billion twenty-four, you can write it for your knowledge because you are a orthodox Christian and it will help you. It will take you Christ as 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. much nearer than Christ as savior. He saves or not but he will united you to God. That's what I am insisting. I wish in your age I should be (?). Write down twenty-four multiply into sixty. Multiply it to sixty, makes the minute, makes the second and fifteen breaths per second multiply by fifteen and one thousand intellect thought your brain generates per that second. So multiply into thousand. That many wavelength, that many you are struck with the intellect thought, now you can understand a man sitting and getting that many electric shocks to him.

This is how we figure it out. And now this man has to exist as a composite micro 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. as self. Now what the meditationMeditation Dhyan.

It is the reserve energy from this area that initiates the flow of the Kundalini energy from the base of the spine. If the navel area is strong, your vital force and health are also strong. . It should be a personal knowledge.

Second you must understand that your shoulders are covered with a warm cloth because you will start feeling coldness here, moment you go in the beginning of the meditative stage and you can be paralyzed because these seven vertebras in the neck and the nervous system, this passing through the eighth vertebras, which is the joint of the diaphragm at the heart to which it beats, if that gets cold you are done. So that's the second area of combination. Third, if you have to meditate and you feel you have fixed time or you are that and you feel that body and is not then at the navel pointNavel Point The sensitive area of the body near the umbilicus that accumulates and stores life force. It is the reserve energy from this area that initiates the flow of the Kundalini energy from the base of the spine. If the navel area is strong, your vital force and health are also strong. take a piece of cloth and knot it. That's called cummerbund. And what happens to you in 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. when you sit down and close your eyes and you start reciting the name of God they call it mono frequency of the sound current.

And 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. is nothing but a mono-frequency of the sound current. When all these currents will start hitting you, all diversional thought will visit you, all neurotic nuisance situation will visit you at that time, which you call impure thought or unwanted thought or disturbing thoughts to fight those thoughts, you have to continue... there is a... in Santa Fe there is a reverend father Jacob and he has arthritis. And he met me and I said, "You are in terrible pain." I mean (?) he said, "That's why I came, because 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. ."

I said, "Do you meditate on Jesus Christ?"

He said, "Yes, I meditate on Jesus Christ."

I said, "Then you should not have arthritis, I don't believe. Jesus is the healer."

He said, "Well, either you have to say that I am lying to you or you have to accept me on my word, I meditate on Jesus Christ."

And I said, "Do you take cold shower bath?"

He said, "Doctor told me not to."

I said, "Do you clean your bowels?"

He said, "I never knew about that."

I said, "And you meditate?"

He said, "Yes, that's..."

I said, "Here is the arthritis, you know where is the arthritis, it's right there."

He said, "What should I do?"

I said, "Tomorrow morning... first of all don't eat in late nights so that you may not have bowels at all."

So he (?) by that and then I told him to have a heavy thick blanket shawl and take cold water shower. So luckily to God's miracle, he didn't know how cold so he went through the basic ice cold water and massaged his body and you know that brought circulation to his body like anything and naturally that took away the arthritis right on the spot. It is nothing else, Jesus didn't do that blunder and he has that warm shawl, which totally brings balance in his nervous system and his mind became clearer and clearer because I told him Thou Jesus, "Thou are my Lord Jesus Christ." I gave him the mantraMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind. Tra-ng is the wave or movement of the mind.

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. ; I made up right there on the spot. Because I can understand the twist in my tongue, 'Thou are my Lord Jesus Christ' and he liked it and he said, "All right, I'll do it." He is hale and healthy and there is no problem and he doesn't do anything, it was not mystical for me, but I could understand with the combination of Laya Yoga, what sound can create the balance of equilibrium in the meditative form.

But a stage comes when the stage 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. reaches the point where multiple thought you don't like at all. You want to be at that mono equi-balance state of mind. So what you want to do with that person? So if somebody will say ask me, "Well I am hung up on Jesus Christ and I don't want to go further," then I say, "Thou are my Lord Jesus Christ! Thou are my Lord Jesus Christ." It is (?) man in prayer but eight, Ashtang, God and me, me and God are one. It's a Ashtang mantraMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind.

It is just chanting the Gayatri,

"Om Bhoorbhuvasvaha Tat Savitur Varenyam Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi Dheeyo Yo Nah Prachodayat."

It's simple. I am not going to do that in Sanskrit, I am going to say, I am going to exactly get the same result by saying God and me, me and God are one. Because I understand me into me, Sa into Sou is creating that uniform circulation on my meridians and I am stimulating my eleventh and twenty-second meridian, which are the most important, which are the six number, which has to be stimulated by the tongue so it's a complicated science but it's the simplest and easiest and shortcut way to do... because in Bhagti, in devotion, in service you have to do dedicate your whole life. But we believe that you give God the God and give dog the dog. You get out and work and earn and share and you be purified with God I mean to say,

"Grihastashram Maha AshramAshram , Aashram A community of practitioners who come together to live conscious, mindful lives. , Devi-Dev Poojitey."

And that's the Grihastashram. For that GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru.

And the sound of that goes like this,

"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.

A Naam gives identity, form, and expression to that which was only essence or subtle before. It is also referred to as the Word. Karta Purkh Nirbhao..."

These are all praises of the God. It has got nothing individual about it.

"Nirbhao Nirvair Akal Moorat Ajooni Saibhung Gurprasad, Jap, Aad Sach Jugaad Sach Hai Bhee Sach Nanak Hosee Bhee Sach."

That's it. Nothing further, further is whole JapjiJapji , Japji Sahib The Song of the Soul written by the First Sikh Guru, Guru Naanak Dayv Jee. Saadhana opens with a recitation of Japji each morning at 3:40 am. A mantra, poem, and inspired religious scripture composed by Guru Nanak. Japji Sahib gives a view of the cosmos, the soul, the mind, the challenge of life, and the impact of our actions. Its 40 stanzas are a source of many mantras and can be used as a whole or in part to guide both your mind and your heart. .

Guest: (----)

Yogiji: It is just like a lollypop, but it has a sugar in it. It has got... pacifier has nothing but you don't want a pacifier, which doesn't have a little honey in it. Question is that sound to rotate the tongue in that combination in the Gian Gufa, that is the...

Guest: (----)

Yogiji: Yeah, I am going to say that. Moment I stop I am revealed of by these people of paying them this money, the bills I am supposed to. Because I go and earn money and I pay their bills, moment they start paying their bills I'll start doing my job I mean to say at this time I am bound down by half a million dollars to them.

Guest: Yeah, you would (?) all those books in English and with these (?).

Yogiji: Yeah, that's what, that's what I want to give to the west... now my combination is like this. Why I am working in this country? I can tell you one thing very specific. I have a revelation; it's mine, nothing new to believe that communism is going to take over the world and all communism is a neurotic capitalism of the state. Now I am a economist, I am not a religious man, I don't claim to be. I have been made religious man because I did something very religious and it is my supreme body, let them judge me, I am not. I am not a professional clergy or a preacher or a teacher I don't claim neither I want to be claimed and nor I have anything to do I am just a human being and I just want to work. I tolerate their titles on me and tying me into the whole nonsense because I can't say no to them and I told them this thing that... to me to tie down to a religion is just putting in a jail in a room. To me it doesn't matter.

In India, I used to have Christian, I used to have every denomination of every religion come and learn and work and I enjoy that, I don't enjoy this limited part of mine, in which I have been focused and I like to free myself but what I feel is for the fee of the spirit, Sikh religion may not have anything greater than any religion or lesser than a religion but (?) experiment has proved that those who were lying down as low and being walked over disrespectfully as human beings it rose them to standard people who stood against the tyranny of the time. And I feel if tomorrow this free land has to stand the tyranny of time I don't mind saying Hallelujah or singing "Saints are marching," if you come to our congregation you will be freaking out, you will think it is more Christian than anywhere else. We do... not that I want to convert people; I have no dearth of students or followers or anything like that.

Guest: (?) for a Christian who would be makes the (?).

Yogiji: Those sounds I make it to Jesus Christ.

Guest: (----)

Yogiji: Those twenty sounds are Saa... he knows the first seven musical sound Saa Ree Gaa Maa Paa Dhaa Nee, Sa Ta Na Ma Ra Ma Da Sa, Sa Sey So Hung. There are the twenty sounds, period. No more no less, no expansion, nothing.

Guest: (----)

Yogiji: Oh yeah, but you know the tradition in India is terrible tradition. My teacher taught me, his teacher taught him, his teacher taught him, and in Tantric Yoga where the sound is the fiber of accumulation of you know I feel I am very happy that I could teach these things freely and I can even teach through universities but idea is not it doesn't matter to you that you may go on having 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. all your life... rather I feel very pity for those people who meditate, pretend to be spiritual, I appreciate their effort. But I feel hurt when they don't have that experience to back it. I think technology has only one meaning that I have a car, it's a comfortable car and my back now doesn't hurt. Okay? It's a costly car. It doesn't matter. I can drive in any car but think of a man who lives all the time in a car, who only takes a pillow by the side of the car and sleeps for an hour and he has to lecture in another university, I don't know which place.

I feel whatever Sikh religion has to give doesn't belong to now. I honestly believe that after being a Sikh or whatever you want to call me, I think it is not day's affair, it is neuroticness and nervousness and fearfulness and it's going to be so heavy, I think if all the Christian, Protestant, Buddhists, everything can pick up those sounds, basic sounds and combine them and start experimenting now with their people and see if they can elevate to somebody to that great strength of the spirit. I think we will be doing a very qualifying job, it is... to me it is very limiting that I have just like you know somebody is bewitched by mental aggravation and agony one who is suffering. For me to put that man into a trance with my flow and ask him to recreate those words,

"Jiththey Tu Samrakh, Othey Koi Na, Othey Teri Rakh, Agni Odhar Maaye, Sunkey Jamkey Doodh, Naaye Terey Chhad Jaaye, Bhav Jal (?) Gaa, 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. Sabad Dee Paar Paaye, Jinn Ko Lagi Pyaas, AmritAmrit , Aamrit The nectar of bliss; also the ceremony in which a person dedicates their life to the Khalsa. Ek Hei Kal Mein Oh Gunn, Gunn Gobind Gaaye Sabse Nu Kartaal, Samale (?) Birtha Koi Na Jaaney, Jee Aavey Tho Raah."

That's it, I am going to say this into so many repetitions that this man will have a jerk and... and that's it, I think I have done my job and done, let him go to the Synagogue tomorrow or to the Church or to a bar. All I want is not to be neurotically mentally neurotic, I don't care, what do you want to call himself.

Guest: (-----)

Yogiji: One tenth of twenty-four hours. One tenth. You give in time in charity to God.

Guest: (?) what logistically happens in us?

Yogiji: Well, we get up in the morning.

Guest: (----)

Yogiji: No, no, no, we have got so many, I mean to say...

Guest: (----)

Yogiji: We do it in group, we call it Sangat, but who wants to do individually has the choice whatever he wants. I mean to say there are both things available for individual identity for group 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. , in group 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. ...

Guest: (?) what happens in the morning (?).

Yogiji: Well, he takes cold shower, then he takes his blanket and he takes his sheep's skin or something to sit on which is warm, which is... you know you will find always sitting me on a chair but my spine is always covered by a sheep's skin or something. I'll never sit ordinarily until I want to mess up myself without keeping my spine. This is what I lay it on (?) sleep on it. That is because the most sensitive protective part, which you have to protect in your body is your spine. Because it is the carrier of your parasympathetic, sympathetic nervous system and all your strength is your nerves. So he comes and brings his sheep's skin and brings his blanket, he sits down; he meditates for a few minutes we say prayer, and our prayer is,

"Ong Namo GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Dev Namo."

"O Infinite transparent God, we bow to Thee, our salutations." And then we start doing exercises physical to open our limbs and system so our flow of the meridians may become okay and then we start breathing combinations so that vitality in the blood of oxygen may become enough, enough to maintain us and thereafter we start meditating on mantrasMantra 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. and after we get into a certain stage where the leader feels that now they are almost in their space, then we start chanting this combination of GurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. and then we take, open 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. , we take the Hukum of the day. The message what comes through and then we have PrashadPrashad Blessed food; refers to sweet food passed out at the end of Sikh worship service; gift of the Guru. in blanched almonds, and herbal tea. What is the tea we use....

Student: (----)

Yogiji: Mint tea! And everybody picks up his car and dresses himself and goes to his work. You are off for the day. Because what we feel is eight hours to work, eight hours to your social self and eight hours to your sleep rest and your 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 your personal improvement. Twenty-four hours are divided that way. There is one thing very beautiful in Sikh religion. It believes in one God. But it doesn't call anybody heathen. That's the only one added thing I have found and I have also found one thing very beautiful in Sikh religion, its doors are very open. You can walk in, in the Temple.

In Golden Temple Muslim comes, he does his Muslim prayers, we don't tell him to get out of here. As a principle. And it is a common kitchen that's one of the most beautiful thing, whenever you come to a congregation you can be freely fed and you will be loved and tolerated and the only thing is we are very monotheist in the sense there is one God, but we didn't say God our Lord, our death, sectarianism is not there. One God is one God as I was told yesterday I have found my God and I said why not you have found also mine, what is the difference in your God, one who finds one's God, finds everybody's God. That concept is very heavily there and it maybe for a person... you understand what I am trying to say. For a person to live on this Earth to us is a very temporary trip. It's not that all is.

Guest: (----)

Yogiji: Yeah, but then there is lot to experience, this is a period to me, it's a period of experience. And if I am avoided of the experience then rest is forget... my apologies, I don't believe that that anything else is worth anything. Some people are very afraid of mystic experience and whatever you want to call it, but had there not been a experience we would have totally been done because I have seen in certain things, certain vision comes to me and I get up next morning and I say 'folks, do what you choose to do but this is what I can interpret what I felt and what I saw' and it has saved us lot, it has saved us tremendous amount of chaos... I... yeah, I remember once my car was to come to Los Angeles and five girls were driving it back and I said, "May the God and 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 I said, "Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait minute, wait a minute, now who is cheating among you?"

They said, "What do you mean..." they were totally shocked that I'll even use the word cheating. I said, "Somebody is cheating among you I told you to go by the same track, you came back. But somebody wants to divert the route, who is this?"

And there was a girl, she said, "Sir, it was my thought but I'll not do it."

I said, "Don't you do it! Take the car exactly by the same route you have come, otherwise I think we are not ready for going by any other route."

And they said, "Okay."

In the middle of the way she said to them, "Now, Yogiji is too much away, his auraAura The radiant field of energy and consciousness that surrounds the physical body and which holds and organizes the seven centers of energy called chakras. Its strength, measured by brightness and radius, determines the vitality, mental concerns, and psychophysical integrity of a person. doesn't reflect more than so many thousand yards so we are far away from that and I think we should have a different route."

So lucky enough, they took a route, car took the turn and toppled down back and it was total but every life was safe. So everybody learnt by experience and sitting right there, I said like a thud here. I just felt that. You call it experience, it's a very mystical experience and I called my security men and I said, "Hey, track down the car, which has left."

And in couple hours we got the message, this is what has happened. To me it is intuition, to me it is a simple intuition and I feel you start the sequence, you end up in consequences and then in the end of the consequences you found God, you are the one who started the sequence, but if you are intuitive if your mind is pure and intuitive you are... then you know the sequence will lead to the consequences... and in Divine will, word is 'Divine Will' you can if you are blessed as the man of faith, you can pray and your prayer can just put you on the correct path. I think when God is merciful it guides me to the correctness, and when God is merciful it shows me through a harder time how ignorant I am. Thank you.

Guest: Thank you very much.
