Anybody in this class in United States can explain to me in a simple sentence, what is a temperamental behavior? Yes SadhanaSadhana , Saadhana A spiritual discipline; the early morning practice of yoga, meditation, and other spiritual exercises.

(Students' laughter...)

Jatedar, what is it?

Student: You are not constant.

YB: You are not constant. We are talking about temperamental, temperamental. Dr Soram what is in the medical science temperamental?

Student: (-------)

YB: Changing with time instead of straight and steady. You got it but what is the base of it, you got the explanation. What is, what is temperamental behavior, right what is the source of temperamental behavior?

Student: (-------)

YB: Explain it better way.

Student: (-------)

YB: Yeah?

Student: (-------)

YB: God, yeah?

Student: (-------)

YB: What do you say girl?

Student: (-------)

YB: No, no, no. What we will do with this country? It's a very important thing your mom didn't tell you?

(Students' laughter...)

Neither your dad?

Student: (-------)

YB: Yeah?

Student: You move by time and space.

YB: No, no, you make it up, that doesn't work. Yeah?

Student: (-------)

YB: Temperamental behavior comes from the personality I know better. Try to for God sake understand what is a temperamental behavior. What is a temper? When you take a iron you temper it, you temper with oil, you temper it with carbon, you temper, temper means when you do something you make it harder. You understand? You temper the iron to make it steel, if you understand what I am going to tell, that's what I told you cool off and try to understand what I am talking to you today if you understand you understand a lot about God, lot about yourself, lot about happiness, lot about success. The word is temperamental behavior, be have arr, behavior is we are it, the sound is be have arr, temper means making hard, mental means mind capacity of the mind, when you make the capacity of the mind harder than it is, why you do it? Because you have to confront time and?

Students: Space.

YB: Space. That's why we come out with a temperamental behavior and once we temper our behavior then that's it. Temperamental behavior does not allow you to initiate your mind in many ways you can initiate your mind in 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. and you can understand the nitty-gritty of it, you can understand the focal point of it, you can understand everything, but once you temper it that's the end of the road. To lose the right, to initiate your own mind, just understand because each gain has a loss. When you are temperamental it's your right, it's your privilege I am not saying you should not be temperamental, I think you should be, if you choose so. If you choose to be temperamental be so, but I am just trying to tell you what you are going to lose. Because each gain has a loss, each success has a failure, each taking has a giving, each giving has a taking. So when you give into temperamental behavior then you lose the right to initiate your mind. When you temper the steel you lose the right to bend it. Got it? To lose the right to initiate my all mind I'll prefer death. It is a serious loss. That means somebody can temper my mind and make me go like a puppy all the way to my death. I saw a wildlife movie of United States and they showed, told us that those buffalos used to be about sixty million or six million I don't remember the number, what is the number? How many buffalos used to be here?

Student: (-------)

YB: Six hundred million something? Six million or six hundred million they were they were lot, they showed us. And these Indians used to have them and they used to become buffalo and put out a smell and disturb them, disturb their temper, disturb their?

Student: Temper.

YB: And they will stampede after that guy and that guy will jump and sit right under and the stampede of buffalo will go over and a huge lot will get killed. But not that much as we killed later on with guns and rifles, that we almost finished them. And then they will take their hides and do whatever they want, take their meat to eat and whatever they want and all the tribes will get together and have what they want. But I looked at that, I said, "Look at the technique and let people see it, let people understand it that if somebody can temper you he gets the right over you to kill you, you have the right to live, you lose the right to live. If somebody can temper you he can guide you, he can make you the way he wants, he can take you where he wants, he can exploit the way he wants, then you have lost the right to be yourself. You don't want to be not to be yourself, not at all. Don't you want to be yourself? Don't you, don't you? And I explain it to you right now, none of you is yourself at all, because temperamental behavior means you have been tempered by circumstances or the initiation of circumstances, therefore because you are not yourself that is why we know for fact and as a common fact that we are all temperamental. Because there is no way, because there is no way to stand before time and space and not be temperamental, but I want to initiate myself, I want to initiate my mind, I want to control myself, I want to control my mind, I want to control my environments, I want to say what I want to say, I want to impress people I want to love people I want to be success, I want to make money, I want to be holy, I want this, I want that, I want so many things but I don't want my life to be dependant on my mind to be rigid and I have to be guided like a blind folded dog, I don't want that. Now what is the way out, tell me please? Yes?

Student: Neutral mindNeutral Mind The most refined and often the least developed of the three Functional Minds. It judges and assesses. It witnesses and gives you clarity. It holds the power of intuition and the ability to see your purpose and destiny. It is the gateway for awareness. .

YB: How, neutral mindNeutral Mind The most refined and often the least developed of the three Functional Minds. It judges and assesses. It witnesses and gives you clarity. It holds the power of intuition and the ability to see your purpose and destiny. It is the gateway for awareness. is all right, mind is already temperamental what is the way out. Neutral mindNeutral Mind The most refined and often the least developed of the three Functional Minds. It judges and assesses. It witnesses and gives you clarity. It holds the power of intuition and the ability to see your purpose and destiny. It is the gateway for awareness. it won't let you reach come on.

Student: (-------)

YB: Intuition will tell you mind is tempered then you will stand up with your own conflict. Yes?

Student: (-------)

YB: Yeah, japa is one way, but how long you have to do japa?

Student: (-------)

YB: Nobody does that, you got to quit, when the latter will come you will be out. Japa is the way. Japa is the way, right, right? Japa is the way, but we can't afford that much time it may take sometime hundred years of japa.

(Students' laughter...)

Who has hundred years? Yeah, yeah? The Veda said the holy man said, the Moses said, the Ibrahim said, the Jesus said, everybody said that, Rama said, Krishna said, even 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, but they said something more you remember that? Japa is right, I agree but it takes time and we are grihasties, we are householders, we are people of the world also, we can't live in forest lonely and eat barks and do japa all the time. Even people take somras, somras is a kind of a drink which totally space you out for about three months once you drink it.

(Students' laughter...)

So, they even drank that and they wanted to that japa, they don't want to come out of it, I know japa reach to the extent forget it, I am just saying is there any easy way?

Student: (-------)

YB: Yeah.

Student: SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. ?

YB: SevaSeva Selfless Service. the heart of the Aashram experience is serving each other. you can do for centuries.

(Students' laughter...)

Student: (-------)

YB: Then there is no need to discuss anything.

(Students' laughter...)

I am not, if you (?) 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. matter ends that's over, God bless you, bye bye bye somebody said, "Yogiji, I want to thank you for all the knowledge you gave me."

I said, "Well, God bless you."

He said, "These days you will be glad to know I have accepted Jesus as my master."

I said, "I am so pleased son that you have accepted Jesus as you master, it's really wonderful. And who you are serving these days?"

He said, "I am working for such and such company."

I said, "That's ridiculous, that's no good. Once you accept Jesus as master you can't serve anybody else, period. Resign tomorrow."

(Students' laughter...)

Once you give your head 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. , forget everything else then it's perfect, I agree with you. But I want to find it a easy way when we cannot give head 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 we can't keep our head on our shoulders what is the way?

(Students' laughter...)

Somewhere when we are in that limbo, come on quick I have been teaching you twelve years.

Student: (-------)

(Students' laughter...)

YB: I want the answer I have the right now to get the answer what you people are, what you are going to tell people we have been following this idiot and we don't know a thing, you guys are going to go out and prove that I never knew a thing? Come on quick I want the reply, I want that line which I repeated it yesterday, it is in the tape.

Student: (-------)

YB: I didn't say that.

(Students' laughter...)

I don't want to take responsibility for wrong statements.

Student: (-------)

YB: You should speak Gurubani,

"Guruki math lehaney, bhagatBhagat A devotee of God. bina bao dubey siyane"

All wisdom, all wise people get drowned without devotion, I explained devotion, it is dee ocean means, no move, it means mind should be in control. I have the right to initiate my mind by my higher self and my higher self belongs to me but it has to be fulfilled. It can be only fulfilled if I take the word, take the word, T A K E, take, take in Punjabi means I take the support, take means both ways. I take the take, I take the support of Guruki Math and in fourteen hundred and thirty pages 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. explained every walk of life. Initiation is I shall abide myself by the knowledge the guidance of the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. , not my personal, not my parental, not my maternal, not my future, not my past, I will initiate my mind, my, my, my so that the ego is satisfied too. And I'll take, I'll take the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. 's word in the beginning there was a word, word was with God and word was God.

So my folks, so my folks if you are a Jew live by Torah, if you are a Christian live by Bible, if you are a Muslim live by Quran, but if you want ever to be a human being live by the word. And that is why, that is why in Siri GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. GranthGranth Literally: knot: book. there is the word of all people from any religion who could reach that level of, level of?

Students: 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. .

YB: 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. . Take the word of those who have reached 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 when you take the word of those who reach 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 you guide and you initiate your mind with those word then you will reach the same stage in no time. So there is no struggle or no trouble with the time and space. Because my mind is the only valuable thing God gave me, it can take me to God in no time and it can take me away from God in?

Student: (-------)

YB: How many of you think you love me, raise your hands?

Now don't, don't do a show piece just, if you don't even love me it's all right. How many of you understand what love means?

(Students' laughter...)

Now raise your hands. Love is experience of oneself within oneself, right, you understand the definition of love. How many of you are willing to pay the price of that love? What is the price of love?

Student: (-------)

YB: No, what I desire, give me that. I said ten times better than me. I fix it up, I didn't ask you to give me your head or your bush shirt or your pajamas or anything, I didn't ask you give me your trust, fund of money, I didn't say a thing. I have never demanded from you a thing, I said, "If you love me be ten times better than me." I fixed a price. You can take all twelve years and you can read anything and you will find this repeated every time if you love me be ten times better than me. That is honest. I don't want you to be like me, not at all. That will be a failure. Siri DharmaDharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. Kaur said, "You are fifty year old let us run around little bit why you are so hard on me?"

I said, "Look I love you, you love me, we are all stuck, I want to see within my lifetime you are ten times better than me," that's a desire, it's a good desire. I have the right to that desire. I want you to win, I want you to succeed, I want you to be happy, I am happy. I am very happy, I want you to know and I am very miserable.

(Students' laughter...)

Too much miserable because you are not happy. I can't take it, I feel I am pretty all bogged down selfish, service and beauty, whatever you want to call it.

(Students' laughter...)

Because, because I am happy and God you are lovey and you are not happy, that's not fair. Right? Right or wrong? That's not fair, that's not, this is unfair game which is bugging me down, and you say you love me and I say sure I accept it pay the price. I don't want you to be mine, I don't want you as my slave, I don't want to do this, I don't want to, I don't need anything, I say just do one thing, be ten times better than me. If you become ten times better than me who will love you will become ten times better than you and whosoever aware of that will become ten, ten times okay, we'll make it hundred times. There is no reason we can't do it. Because happiness is my individual birthright, I am born in the image of God, nobody can tell me what to do and nobody has the right to initiate my mind, I have the right to initiate my mind, you remember twelve years ago there was a situation, somebody wanted to give eighteen million dollars and plus land, plus house, plus car, plus all that and there was no obligation on the surface or behind the surface except I had to put my hand on her and say, "In the name of God Almighty I initiate you." I won't say it and she won't give a dime. Rather she became so mad that she said, "I'll take all that money to slander you and get you out of United States faster than you think."

And I said, "Lady, I have not come to United States to have bucks here. Someone who brought me will take me away, neither you brought me."

She said, "Why not?"

I said, "Do you know, did you write me a letter?"

"No."

Side-B

"No."

I said, "So, that ends the matter, don't be upset, don't be temperamental, no problem."

A week later she came and satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down. She said, "Why you won't accept my money? I want to give you out of love."

I said, "Look, you have to understand something, if I am a man and you tell me to get pregnant, tell me how I'll get pregnant? Explain it to me, you don't understand big language. I'll explain to you in human language. I am a male right? I mean to say I do not know what is happening in America these days, tomorrow they may, they may put a tube in me and may make me pregnant."

(Students' laughter...)

"I don't know yet." Well, they are messing up with every organ anyway, they have a pump system and they have this system, you read all those papers I read it too. But, I said, "Lady, can you believe at this moment that I can be pregnant?"

She said, "No."

I said, "Why not?"

She said, "But you are not capable of being pregnant."

I said, "I am not capable of initiating anybody. I am not, if I am not capable of initiating anybody why should I claim it? Why should I initiate you? I can't initiate you because I am not capable, period. It's not in my genes, it's not in my process, I don't want to come from India to America and cheat Americans. I am not here for that purpose, period. I don't need your money and I don't need your land and I don't your house and I don't need you."

She said, "What you want?"

I said, "I want somebody who can initiate himself."

"How?"

I said, "I'll tell you."

She said, "I don't want to learn."

I said, "That's it."

(Students' laughter...)

"You don't want to learn, I am willing to tell you, you don't want to learn, don't learn, please don't yell at me. Because if I initiate you then you won't initiate yourself, got it? And so long God gave you identity and you don't initiate yourself then it is not possible that you can progress."

That is the secret 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 given me and that is the secret I give you today all that ego is the biggest disease but there is a solution in the ego and the ego solution is initiate, initiate with your own ego, your own self and don't accept any other initiation. That's why when we give amritAmrit , Aamrit The nectar of bliss; also the ceremony in which a person dedicates their life to the Khalsa. we don't write a letter, so and so because you have been in this DharmaDharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. for thirty-four years now we feel you are good for initiation, please come bring seven hundred and fifty dollars the fee, plus three hundred as special fund, two hundred twenty-five for this, and seven hundred dollars for your residency permit here, we don't do that. Have you seen us doing it? We don't believe in this. We want to sell God to you and we want to tell you what God is but we want to pay it for and God 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. that you can only buy God 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. and not with dollars and not with money.

We give money, we give one-tenth because we feel one-tenth of us belongs to 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 we give it. We don't give it to get a receipt, because we feel one-tenth of time, one-tenth of us, one-tenth of our money, what is a money? Stored services rendered are capable to be rendered. Money is stored, service is rendered or capable to be rendered and that is all money is, money is what money does. So for good purposes, for community purposes, for the poor, for the rich, to be alive, to defend ourselves, to protect ourselves, to expand ourselves, we give one-tenth. Why? Because we know 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 it. And we know GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. is wise. And we have seen through all the time the 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. are infinite truth.

Therefore we initiate 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. further said if you give the initial money, 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 that, if you give the seed money in the name of God, God will give you many fold and also 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, whom he shall bless, shall give and I believe God has blessed you all therefore you should give. Even I reminded you I read letter to you, I tell you. It doesn't come to me, there is no purpose of mine in it, it's all your purpose, it's all you. But I feel and honestly feel in the heart that you should stand in the line of those who are blessed, because when I was a little child I was told the story, little story, very little story for a little time when I was a little child. That one day a saintly man got up from sleep and he saw that angel is writing a list, that's a huge long list.

He asked, "Oh angel of light, Oh special of God, what are you writing in my little hut?"

He said, "I am writing the name of those who love God."

He said, "You must have chosen my place because I love God too. Is my name there?"

He said, "Forget it."

(Students' laughter...)

"Your name is not there."

He said, "What are you doing here?"

He said, "I told you I am writing the list of those who love God."

He said, "But why you came to my house, I don't understand."

He said, "None of your problem, I thought it is cozy and I am here don't bug me let me write, I have to complete my work before the sun rises I have to finish it, don't bother me. Hey, I'll be here tomorrow again don't bother me."

"So okay, you are an angel who can fight with an angel, keep on writing."

He got so mad and that day he didn't get up for 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. , he slept.

And angel said, "Hey you are not to do 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. ?"

He said, "No, no, you are writing a list, I don't want to disturb you."

(Students' laughter...)

As you say to your wife sometime, I don't want to wake you up because you are snoring, poor thing is snoring wake her up so that she can do 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. at least she will chant and do Japa, you prefer snoring over Japa. But it is all right that is your way of thinking, I have nothing to do with it. But once a while like that angel I sneak into the bedrooms I see some wonderful scenes, it's okay it is not my problem, I am supposed to see them. I don't; keep a note of them, don't misunderstand, I forget them afterwards.

(Students' laughter...)

But they are wonderful thing wonderful things, wonderful things. He slept next day he woke up, angel was again there and this time he had a list, he has a folded list and he was kind of meditating, he was not writing anything.

He got up, he said, "Hey, what are you doing today?"

He said, "I am writing a list again."

He said, "What is the list of these today?"

He said, "This is a list whom God love."

He said "All right."

He said, "Why it is all right?"

He said, "Why should I ask you, I told you yesterday I love God and you said my name is there, now where can be my name in the name of those whom God loved. Forget it."

He said, "Unfortunately yours' is the only name and that's why there is no work and you can see 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 that Ram Das Kaur,

"Jis nu bakhsay sifat saalaah. Naanak paatisaahee paatisaahu."

You don't believe it, ah? Believe it or not? No, you don't, this is my fight with you Ram Das Kaur, I fight with you everyday on every corner on every bend, I say your name is Ram Das Kaur, princess who serve Ram Das, Ram Das sarovar naathey?

(?)

This is what I say? Did I say wrong? You know I am just writing the list, list, in the list read my name, Akasha Kaur what are you doing on the earth?

(Students' laughter...)

Name is Akasha Kaur, the princess of the ether. I told her don't put up weight it is too earthy.

Poor thing hassled a lot but you know she lost lot of weight.

Somebody said, "What do you mean by Dr. Soram?"

I said, "Sou Ram, hundred Ram not one."

I said, "Simple vowels spoken, just Sou Ram and quickly and you say Soram, Sou Ram, hundred Ram, one Ram nahi hundred Ram if you call Dr, Soram you have already called the hundred Ram, let him leave up to it that's the destiny." There is no way out. We have the right to be, let us be and so be it. Mental initiation is our privilege, mental initiation is our privilege and mental guidance is our right.

We'll discuss that next, therefore, may the...

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