...I know you might have all afternoon program but let us be very flexible and cancel it.

We have been asked to come and join the prayer, he was really a great gentleman and very good 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. Sikh and his wife expects you to come and join in the prayers, that was a very urging prayer asked for. So it is my responsibility also to ask you to cut down your insensitivity for a long time and this is the time we should extend ourself to that point. Somebody has a very urgent afternoon to go for some appointment or something let us see that we can postpone it, it is not that important.

We only learn to participate in living things. These days people have private death ceremony only confined to the family. I think death ceremony is the whole universe should participate the prayer and send the soul on the way where it came from and that's my personal request. Thank you very much and now we do all (?).

Low voice....

You are supposed to contact everybody. We are Sikhs, no obligations on our part to anybody should contact us. Nobody should contact us, nobody should contact us. Why they should contact us? They are already in pain. We are really at the pain. Anyway....

Today I am very rich because I had a great experience yesterday. I was invited to Dr. Ratna Sara's birthday, seventh birthday. I went there and they asked all men of religious caliber to speak. Fortunately I was the last speaker and I heard everybody speaking it was a very strange situation what we as a religious people do it in such a clever way because we have command over the word and people trust or have faith with us. How corrupt we are I realized yesterday and I deeply was very ashamed of our performance. Now what we are talking now is to people we in the west that surprised me, we in the west because Dr. Ratna Sara comes from Sri Lanka so every speech was designated on geography. We in the west and when it comes to my terminology I said, "We in the west who has New York as east and Tokyo as west."

It is amazing how culture and geographical terminology is binding people to keep under a circumstances now what is the oriental riddle, and let us put it this way. What is oriental? What is East? First of all Israel is not West, Jerusalem is not West. Desert sena is not West, it is East. If you want to come to really shall come to the push there is not a one man of God born in the West and will never and cannot. Why so? We don't know.

So far 1980 we in the West, you in the East, you understand? We white, you black, you Chinese, we Japanese and then we all use religion to keep people together. We this, we that. Question is Is God this or that? Is God not with this, not with that?

"Aval allah noor upaa-i-aa kudrat ke sabh bande Ek noor te sabh jag oopaji-aa kon bhale ko mande"

There was but one God through His light God created the whole universe. Tell me when one created all who can judge that what is good and what is bad? We in the West and we in the East and what about those we who are in the middle? The concept of God and the concept of religion is not understood. It is the most corrupt territory of man's 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. . Man is so alien with the soul, so bigotry in his behavior towards his spirit and so much corruption towards his elevated consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. he doesn't know what he is doing. Man has forgotten that the creativity of God he earned to be a human because of the power of the prayer. Purpose of life is consistency in that perpetual prayer, learn it anyway you want. Wailing wall of the Jerusalem, Coliseum of Rome, Shaheed Ganj of Amritsar. Where unknown martyr fell reminds us and we who believes the path of Nanak in our prayer in our ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. in our application and sublimation to God we remember those who fell for us for the truth. So what is ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. ? What is our prayer? Our prayer is to pray for consistency of the soul and pay our homage and dividend those who fell for truth. Life is a very simple thing, at he cost of personal discomfort and sacrifice people leave behind a legend which the futurist generation take account of and enjoy happiness and that is immortality. Immortality even the yogisYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. they felt wrong, they started using certain science and certain pranayamPraanayam , Pranayam , Pranayaam Regulated breathing patterns or exercises. to lengthen their life.

GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Guru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. said that,

"Jay jug charay aarjaa hor dasooni hoe

Navaa khandaKhanda Double-edged sword. vich jaanee-ai naal chalai sabh koe"

If your life is four yugas and four hundred times of the yuga, what use that would be? It is not the length of the life it is the value of the life. It is not the sphere of the emotions and commotions, it is the sphere of 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. which is evaluating, elevating, understanding, realizing. It is not what we think mentally. Mentally? Oh my God. Mentally first concept you think has to be negative. There is no way you can be a living human being first thought will not be negative, there is no way. You are not made that way.

So, first thought is negative, second thought is positive, third thought is neutral fourth thought is conscious, chouthey pad mein mukthi pavaey. It is at the fourth level you achieve the bliss the freedom and absolutely concession and oneness between you and God. It is not what you want, it is not what you are it is what you negotiate. You have to negotiate with your soul not with your neighbor, not with your boss. You are willing to negotiate, oh well there is a strike, employee strike, negotiate. Boss is angry, negotiate. Neighbor is wrong, send him cookies, negotiate.

We do everything in the world. Wife is upset, negotiate. Children are just roughed up, negotiate. You negotiate indirectly, directly in subtle way with whole universe. You do not negotiate with your soul, because soul is willing to negotiate at 3 a.m. and you at that time if snoring you will say gurrr, gurrr, because that is the concessional hour, it's the most sexual and sensual hour when soul and you can sit and talk and negotiate. Mind will be extremely active to give you all the negativity and soul needs that activity, that's her food. She eats supper that negativity and give you one day clear, conscious, perpetual, wonderful, exalted, excellent. When you do not feed the soul in the ambrosial hour, soul does not get the ambrosial food and soul does not eat the breakfast of the negative mindNegative Mind One of the three Functional Minds. It is the fastest and acts to defend you. It asks, "How can this harm me? How can this limit or stop me?" It is also the power to just say no, stop something, or reject a direction of action. , the whole day then mind plays the game, you become subjective not objective. Your strength as a human is no less than God. If anybody ever tell you that you have to find God, he wants your money not you.

"BeejBeej Seed. mantarAntar , Bantar , Jantar , Mantar , Tantar , Patantar , Sotantar These describe the sequence of creative expression from inner essence to full manifestation. Antar is the inner essence and being. It is before form. Each essence has an associated structure in time and space, a dimension to it, bantar. This structure is fulfilled by an appropriate matching set of qualities, jantar, which has a unique sound resonance, mantar, and a distinct visual form, yantar. This form and energy interrelate to the universe, tantar, creating a projection and track as it threads through time and space, patantar, until finally achieving its liberated form, beyond time and space, sotantar. This form creates a neutral point that ties together many of the polarities inherent in Prakirti to embed and express the essence of the antar in creation. sarb ko gyan"

The very seed of thee has the entire knowledge of the self and the beyond self. It cannot be wrong. Therefore, there is nothing to negotiate. Yes, I am sorry I am also head of the religion I want my hand in your pockets. Yes. Well, there are three ways to do it. I can be direct, I can be indirect or I can negotiate. I think neither I have to be direct, nor I have to be indirect, nor I have to be negotiate. I think you should rise to your consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. I should rise to mine and live the ways God wants us to live. When a spiritual man compromises that is hell. When a spiritual man sacrifices and walks tall, that is heaven. And our song of the khalsa sums up our total philosophy. Many speak of courage, go ahead.

The class chants...

DharmaSikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. Dharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. . In the face of death not in the face of bank account, not in the face of degree. Once I went to a doctor, I won't name it because he is in Los Angeles and many of you are his patient.

(Student's laughter)

So I have no guts to name him. I talked to the man, before talking to the man I went to the hallway, full of his degrees, somewhere he just killed a sparrow and they must have honored him, even that was hanging on the wall. Such a exhibition of personality I have not seen on the planet Earth and I turned around to SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. SimranSimran A deep meditative process in which the naam of the Infinite is remembered and dwelled in without conscious effort. and I said, "My dear this doctor is not United States born resident."

And she said, "How you know it?"

I said, "This exhibition to prove is a psychology of an immigrant to impress."

She said, "You and your psychology sir leave it alone we have to meet a doctor here not to discuss psychology."

I said, "You go and watch you will find it out."

"I am entering through this and I am telling you he is not going to listen to me how sick I am and what is wrong with me, he is going to lay the number and you be very alert what he says."

And exactly that's what happened. He gave me a big lecture, bigger than my own and he...

(Student's laughter)

Totally wrapped me up, spin me through his pinky and told me, "Because of Dr. Khalsa is my doctor therefore he is listening to it and he is prescribing this otherwise he doesn't agree."

I said, "Wait a minute are you doing it free or you are sending the bill?"

No bill came all right. Our personality in our life and in our behavior is based on our interrelationship and our interaction and our inter dependency on each other, it is never between us and our soul where we are totally dependent. When soul leaves Wahe Wahe Guru , Whaa-hay Guroo A mantra of ecstasy and dwelling in God. It is the Infinite teacher of the soul. Also called the gur mantra. GuruWahe Guru , Whaa-hay Guroo A mantra of ecstasy and dwelling in God. It is the Infinite teacher of the soul. Also called the gur mantra. Guru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. . The beautiful decorated body of a king without soul lie in the dust. What is the next step? Put it on the pyre and put it to fire. That body, that wife who never wanted to leave one minute at night he hugged in the morning she kissed in the afternoon she wanted to hear, in the night she was ready to receive that body, when it is without soul send it to mortuary.

And that body shall start stinking and you will start thinking we cannot take more time because it is going to stink, it is going to come out. And some of you which has soul inside and you stink God what do you think? Have you asked your neighbors how much you stink? We do not wrong other people because we do want to wrong other people. We wrong other people because we do not know what right is and we want to look right, that's the only way we wrong people, otherwise there is no reason to wrong anybody. God has created me and God has created my environments, God has rotated the planet Earth for me and God is going to take care of my routine. God has never gone on a leave have you seen Him on Acapulco all the time?

(Student's laughter)

That's not true. And every religion man is deadly corrupt. Forget about what Lenin said, religion is a OP of the mankind it exploited masses. I am saying being a head of the religion, religious is the most corrupt thing I have ever experienced. It all tell you God is everywhere but you can get it through me. This monopoly is no good and they were single.

(?)

God you take care of my affairs. You are everywhere in all aspect of it. Nanak realized that, that is why Nanak was the victim of the bigotry of the time. And as Nanak continues in the spirit and soul bigotry has not stopped. We in the west and they in the east and somebody in the center and somebody in the north and somebody in the south. That's why the evaluation is that there are three truths, individual, geographical and the infinite. Individual truth is what you know I know don't know. And geographical which I know you know and we both can know, we believe it or not doesn't matter. It's a geographical truth that Los Angeles has a smog. Some know and some don't.

And infinite truth is that we are taking away from planet Earth all the possibilities to create oxygen to keep the balance as mankind, that's the infinite truth. And we are doing research in it. On one hand we are destroying, on the other hand we are doing research on it. Our typical imposition is that we become the conqueror of anything and everything which also survives us. But one thing we couldn't conquer to keep soul forever in our body. Body was given a vehicle to experience. Mind was given always to be connected with infinity, it was also given the power to touch negativity so that you can be productively careful and be always alert to something, because your existence is by the will of God. My mental attitude is very sensual and sexual, very creative, but moment the word sex comes we go right into the pornographic world. Moment the word what is wrong with word? Because that is our mental attribution with it.

Yesterday I was asking somebody I said, oh yeah Prem I said, "Pick up the dictionary and check the word bull."

You know first meaning of the bull is? A decree by the papple duly stamped and signed and confidential and personal. Second was an animal in difference specie considered to be a male, that was a second meaning of it. And then bull means the market, each word has many meanings. This universe is a universe of words, that is why 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. is a continuous perpetual prayer of that combination and permutation and combination in which your tongue can rotate on your upper palate and create that ecstasy of prayer which you need. That's why we sing a gurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. , that's why we sing musically because there is a harmony, there is a note to it. And that is why our understanding is developing with that idea, that sense of duty. We definitely have to tap God or no God but we have to tap in our soul everyday.

We have to keep in touch with our soul. We have to give a smile to our neighbor, but we have to go inward for few minutes through our 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. to feel our soul within our own strength and that makes our day. It cannot be that you live in the house of some gentleman be that gentleman's guest and totally ignore that gentleman. You live by the strength and by the vibration and by the existing of the soul within your structure of body and you have the guts and you have the paraphernalia and you have the mental activity, you have the social activity, you have the logic and biological activity to ignore your own soul. That is ridiculously cruel. That is absolutely what it is all about.

Go to a church, go to a synagogue, go to a temple, you will be inspired to be touch in God. Where is God? Right your soul in you, right your spirit in you, right yourself in you.

One day I was sitting in the living room and I turned my foot around and I was looking at my sole, funny somebody who has come to see me I thought it's a practical way to teach him, because this guy doesn't believe in soul. So I just turned around, it was very difficult for me to twist my foot that much, but I made a very good posture.

He walked in he wanted to touch my feet.

I said, "Don't God bless you."

And he said, "Sir, what you are looking at?"

I said, "I am looking at my sole."

(Student's laughter)

"This is my left sole, this is my right sole."

And then I put my both feet up and started looking at them.

And he said, "This is the sole?"

I said, "Yeah, this is on which you stand."

He said, "But I never thought that way."

I said, "I know, he never thought that way."

I said, "Remove your socks and look at your both sides of the sole, left and right, you will have something happened to you."

Now that is a vigyan asanAsan , Asana Position, seat, yogic posture. I know I am a yogiYogi One who has attained a state of yoga (union) where polarities are mastered and transcended. One who practices the disciplines of yoga and has attained self-mastery. , I mean to say I understood.

I said, "Hold your toes very strongly and sit down and just take shelter with my chair."

Because western have not very flexible but they can't sit problem.

So I I said, "Just take a take,

(?)

Take, take with my chair and just keep on looking at your soul, left sole, right sole that's all you have to do.

It didn't take more than ten minutes, his understanding was much better, he was much better a man. Because he always thought everything is in space nothing on the Earth, everything is on the Earth because Earth is the reflection of the heavens. Those who do not enjoy the reflection of the heavens do not enjoy the heavens. If you do not like me when you see me through the mirrors you are not going to like me when you see me direct. It is true. If you hate me through my picture you are not going to love me in a person. Your concept of reflection is total. That is why people do not understand what a picture means. Picture is so important even in the 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. in our mool 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. ,

"Akal Moorat aajoonee saibhung Guruprasad"

Somebody was discussing with me that day, "Is this picture truly is 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. ?"

I said, "No."

"Then why we have it?"

I said, "Does it remind you to discuss at least we have started dialogue about GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Guru Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. Gobind SinghGuru Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. ? I say A is apple, does the A give you apple and does the apple give you A?"

He said, "No."

I said, "But you learn A? Through the sweetness of apple and how you can earn apple? Through the knowledge of A."

What is pictorial is to give understanding. What is the activity to give you the capacity, give you the stamina and what is the self? To complete the experience and enjoy and be expert. That is what we need mentally, personally, socially, biologically logically, with understanding, with misunderstanding, being, not being, today, tomorrow, yesterday to be with God. Therefore, at certain hours we get up try to be with God. That is ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. , that is prayer, that is our sublimation. That's the way it is and our ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. is very beautiful.

Prithamey what is the creativity the goddess of creativity we worship. Perfect.

That which is far and far behind is that basic truth. Pritham bhagavathi, bhago gathee, which is the salvation of the cycle of bhago, coming going, Simarke, jap and simer are two words. Simeran is by applied consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself.

Well I tell you one thing best. If you have not played it, play it now. There is a game called ladder and snake. There is a game called ladder and snake. It's the most spiritual game, it start from number one, it ends in number hundred and somewhere at ninety-nine there is a snake which brings you about down to the seven, the cycle of consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. . And perhaps at eleven you get a ladder it takes you about eight-one something like that. It is very well designed game. It tells you what dice is for you, it is not a chance, its base and call time and space when meets that is where the dice becomes dice. And when you play the dice of life that's where we do the prayer.

And we start the call.

Side B

We start the inner call we meditate, we close our eyes for that three seconds. We seek the invocation of protection of the infinite God. We invoke the blessing of the GurusGuru 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. . We salute and we ask for the blessing, we also ask in that that we belong to thee and we seek thy victory and we start the car as normally everybody else starts. We cannot conquer time but we do conquer space. That moment of prayerful waiting will take us from the longitude and latitude of coincidence where that accident has to happen.

Somebody was telling me yesterday, "Oh my God I was just exactly three feet away and I laughed."

She said, "Are you not amazed Yogiji?"

I said, "No."

She said, "You are so correct how you know it?"

I said, "I can tell you from the distance. Moment you said the accident was inevitable and I was only three feet away I can tell you that you must have chanted the 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. and you must have chanted very fast."

She said, "In future I am going to do it really slow."

(Student's laughter)

I said, "Then somebody is going to hit you on the back."

(Student's laughter)

"Don't be in anybody other accident space. Don't over do it and don't under do, just do it and that is the reality of life."

Life is a very realistic and your body and your being is very wonderful, it is creative, Almighty God couldn't create anything better. Today we have been obligation today 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. Sikhs to go and sit and pray and give farewell, prayerful farewell. The soul of the gentleman who was among us, who believed among us, who lived among us, who related among us and that creativity is a obligation also. You always say soul to soul and that's all it is in practice.

I hope if it is not very damaging socially and economically or you have really appointments and Monday you cannot create your energy except you have to sleep afternoon or whatever, you know... I am not willing to interfere into the individual needs, but I do feel if we can go as a Sangat and be there it will be much beautiful. It will be good for us, subject to your own salutation what you want to feel about. Life is to come and go and go to come, nobody shall be here permanent. Structure changes seventy-two hours, ten trillion cells change in seventy-two hours by law of nature. After every seventy-two hours you are a new person, grading upwards or grading downward.

Ultimately what balance is what balance is. Therefore, when we come 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. 's house we come with utmost reverence, absolutely in utmost meditative self and we recite gurbaniGurbani Word of the Guru, Refers particularly to the words from the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. , that's why we distribute the 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. , we prepare ourself a week earlier so we can all become one voice. Ik ong kaar only means one thing when the kar the creation of the Creator does something as a class, as a jamaat, jamaat karamaat, the class is classical miracle. There is no other miracle in the world. It's a union, you may unite with your wife as a husband and wife, you may unite with somebody as neighbor. You can unite with everybody as a friend, you can unite in everyway you want, but there is one union which is superior than all unions that is the prayer. Those who pray together stay together and that way if you pray with a heavenly man you shall go to heavens because that is the promise. That's why Nanak says all the time,

"Sangat lag baliye, sangat lag tariye"

In the company of the holy you will just fix your all affairs. Understanding is very simple, man is known by the company he keeps and for a Sikh to keep in holy company is a dictate, it's a understanding. If you will sit in the garden sometime when you are angry and depressed and negative, the fragrance of the flower will cheer you up, but if you are very happy and exalted and you want to go and sit in the pit of the garbage dump I think your nose will tell you after fifteen minutes leave out. Please decide in your life what your mental extensions tell you to do and then apply your consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. and figure it out is that elevated self which you have been given by God with the blessing 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. deserve that space that person and that behavior?

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. says,

"Moorkhey naal nalujiye"

Don't create a conflict with a unwise person it will only enlarge the conflict. Nothing is going to be decided.

With a man of no knowledge friendship will never ultimately come out to be true, because if the friendship is commotional it has no relevancy to the basic personality it can never be true. Sometime you remain married and you are married and you are continuous to be married but you both understand after a while that you do not pull it together. Sometime you live in the same house and you see your own child born out of you with understanding and all that is pulling separate from you.

Because if you have a meditative mind and as a mother you would have got that conceived the child in a meditatively kept him together with you, then child would have also from conception till death would have understood and adjusted to the frequency. When you get married or you have a relationship with a man if you would have adjusted your frequency. Relationship is not the piece of paper which a man of God just says you are married and you will stay together in infinity. Relationship is the adjustment of frequency of the psyche within the structure of two being so that the spirit and the soul can become one. It is that love which is received in God's own court. It is that opportunity which is practiced in God's own universe as called Earth. It is that understanding with which two individual love each other and live together.

I hope as we are reaching towards Baisakhi the birth of the purity and piety and the day of the Khalsa we'll mentally start elevating ourself, organizing ourself inviting everybody so that all can come and join with us in that celebration. That's one thing it is not your obligation, its individual soul's cry. It's the individual sole purpose of life that one day of purity and reality and birth. This is our birthday, that is the birthday of the entire mankind soul and spirit, which is the alma meter of purity, piety and blessing.

I hope you will understand and work out your way from now onwards meditatively, prayerfully, actively towards that end. It will exalt you, it will give you better understanding and it will give you the depth, so that you can unload your cargo if the harbor is deep. It is very painful to use that shallow harbors and it is very painful to be friends with shallow people. If you are really friend to somebody take away that person shallowness, give that person depth it will be good for you forever. That's real love, that's real understanding and that's real the way Sikh lives on the planet Earth.
