(Song stops)

... I and Bibiji have invited young ladies to morning breakfast; there should be no jealousy on the part of the older ones.

(Students laugh)

Is that all right?

Students: Yes sir.

YB: Well, this is the way we felt that day and we wanted that way. But if you really want to know what is being cooked and what is being fed then you can come and wash dishes.

Student: (----)

YB: Why not? Oh that's beautiful. Thank you. Something very beautiful has been printed and I think every woman should read this. Your Excellency from Washington, you gave me beautiful tree yesterday that was fine but I have to sit down... I am so overworked that yesterday from one O' clock to four O' clock I didn't have even 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 had terrible fever. Thanks to GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. AmritAmrit , Aamrit The nectar of bliss; also the ceremony in which a person dedicates their life to the Khalsa. and her healing tricks I should say that I am sitting before you and talking, totally broken up in my own body. Oh beautiful, that's nice! The psychology of invincible woman. Here you are. It's quite a weight. Do you really read these things or not?

Students: Yes sir.

YB: This much I talked?

(Students laugh)

It's unbelievable. Who did it? You? Several people, those several people are going to do this year too?

Student: (----)

YB: What do you mean manage? No, I understand... no I know somewhere along the line things are happening. Okay, give me a pencil. Now this is yours. Don't tell anybody what I wrote.

(Students laugh)

Subject is very unique; you are not going to like it. But if you just have enough tolerance to hear me that will be enough. Okay? How to get worshipped as a woman? You know what I am saying? How to get worshipped as a?

Students: Woman.

YB: First of all let us talk freely; do you want to get worshipped? Haa?

Students: (-----)

YB: Now let us be honest.

Students: Yes sir.

YB: Then why you want to commercialize yourself to go out and sell yourself sexually and sensually. Explain it to me. Tell me. I'll like to have a answer. What is in you, which is missing? What is in you, which is wrong? What is in you, which makes you even to do it? I have never... I am fifty-five year old. You know in our village... from our village to railway station it was about what fifteen miles? Twelve to fifteen miles... can't measure it... it was a flag station, flag station means if we get up there, you know and if there is a passenger for that place then the train will stop. If not then it will go through.

It was a big station, every train used to stop but it used to stop for us and you know then there was a road available so people will come through road and through cars, nobody started using lot of trains so they thought not to do that. But suppose I am coming, okay? And train stops, right? I got down. Then there is a horse for me to pick up, right? There is a one man and one horse, one horse for luggage, one horse for me, so we will come, right? It's normal in villages it happens. But suppose at that time the village sweeper's daughter gets down the same train, I get down from first class, she gets down from third class, she has a luggage and she gets down the train and she is a sweeper in the village whose daughter she is, right? You understand? Untouchable, low-class, menial work all that and I am son of the landlord and first son and Prince of Wales and whatever. You understand what I mean? All right, what will happen? Give me a idea.

Student: (----)

YB: She gets to ride the horse and I had to hold the rein and bring her all over to the town. Twelve miles walking straight. Why these traditions were there? And why these are not now? Why people choose (?) I will just give you big thing of twelve miles that men used to open the door, right? Man will go from the steering wheel, go around the car, open the door, open the door, make you sit, close the door, go all the way back and sit on the steering wheel. Why? The same thing. Why? Haa? Why they used to do it?

Students: (-----)

YB: No, a simple thing, you were a woman and they were men. Now you have become men and they have become men, nobody opens door for you. That's a fact. That's what has happened. You have lost their identity; they have lost your reverence. There is nothing gone bad. You have lost identity, and they have lost?

Students: (-----)

YB: And I also tell you something in other twelve... in one decade, you know one more ten years that's one decade... men won't give you even a lift. Forget about opening the door. Marriages will be by contract if you sleep with me three nights I'll pay you forty dollars. Life between male and a female has come to a point if it is not worth living. Why? I have explained to you many, many, many times a man does not need woman for meat, for flesh and for sex and for social life. You won't believe it, you don't, do you? No, you don't. Man believes woman for everything as what they call is extracurricular activity, sex, friendship, social, home, children everything. A to Z everything in life between a male and a female is a extracurricular activity. Then what is man needs out of a woman? Haa? Woman.

He needs out of a woman, a woman. Inspiration, he can hire somebody to give him inspiration. It takes thirty dollars a week. Maid can come and clean the house and if he pays another twenty dollars she can also sleep with him. I know there are arrangements like that. This guy has four maids they come as maids, they take care of it, and with anyone it's just calculated stuff. And this is nothing. A no man will need anything but a woman and no woman needs anything but a man and this has to be established. So long you will think that a man needs you for so and so, such and such, it is a business. So business between male and a female, then there is a profit and loss, you understand that? When the relationship is established with no profit, no loss, it is it. Then you both have understood each other. Are you willing to accept it? No, no, no, no, you don't accept it; I know it I have been crying on top of my voice from last fifteen years.

I said, 'don't go after a man; find out how much man he is.' You don't go after a man, you go A-age, B-beauty, C-caste, D-dowry, E-education, F-blah blah blah... you look around, he is tall, he is handsome, he is wealthy, he is good to talk, he is good, he smells good, his habits are good, he dresses up clean, his shoes are shining, you know all that stuff, haa? But in that there maybe a pigeon not a man. What is a man? There is nothing to laugh, you got to tell me. What is a man? Haa? Man is a man. That I agree. Yeah, what is a man?

Student: (----)

YB: He doesn't fail as a man he is a man. Right? Agreed? You are so many women; and you can't tell me what is a man? You all deal with them one way or the other. Haa?

Student: (----)

YB: Knocking head? Your husband doesn't knock I know that.

Student: (----)

YB: General what? You got the pretty one therefore everybody should go to hell that's not fair. You are school lovers, right? Yeah, they are school lovers. There is a one couple if you look at their life you should just enjoy it. She thinks she wears the pant and he thinks he wears the pant, when nobody wears the pant they both are nude.

(Students laugh)

It's a very funny couple. It is funny couple. I go all the way to Alaska to study them. There are two couples, which are most unique in 3HO. One is Anchorage Alaska, another is Toronto. 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. Tej Kaur 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. Tej Singh, very funny couple. It's just... these two couples are very special one here and one here and you study them how they talk to each other. I love the... there is nothing more special about it, when they communicate with each other it's very funny. In Anchorage Alaska, Nirvair Kaur does all the talking and Nirvair Singh does all the knocking!

(Students laugh)

But he is the one who does everything and she doesn't do a thing.

(Students laugh)

It's very surprising, it's true. And in Toronto 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. Tej Kaur is who talks. 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. Tej Singh who does talk. They both talk, over, over flapping talk, you listen to them. She talks and he talks then he talks and she talks and it's just like that. And she end up doing and he end up looking. It's unique, it's called... it is uniquety, it is uniquety in couples. All couples are... in 3HO there are lot of couples, which are very the couple at that place somewhere Tennessee what is their name?

Students: (-----)

YB: Have you ever seen them? Go and sometime stay with them. You can learn something very unique. That's the most unique couple in 3HO. Nothing equal like it. They hardly talk, they look at each other. And something happens everybody knows nothing but they know the whole thing. How many of you have been to Germany. How many of you have seen Taran-Taran Singh and Taran-Taran Kaur talking? Aren't they unique? Will you ever understand who is saying what? It's very... yeah, yeah, there are some people it's fun to see them even talking. Life is not that bore, which you think it is. In Taran-Taran Kaur and Taran-Taran Singh something you can all learn, they don't talk to each other to win. Never!

Taran-Taran Kaur talks very strongly, I think because she has (?) since she has been to Germany she has that what they call push expression and Taran-Taran Singh, just he is like a minister... he is kind of a (?) minister, he takes it that way but they don't make I win you lose, you win I lose, not at all. It is very cohesive communication system established in their family. There is nothing wrong, there is nothing right, there is nothing push, there is nothing pull, there is nothing to let down each other, how many of you have been to Copenhagen? You know my that sweet girl what is her name? You know rapid fire?

(Students laugh)

And problem is with that rapid fire she is always right. It's the worst problem of life. She will take a point as a woman; she will understand the responsibility, right? And she says Trrrr...Trrrr...trrrr...trrr... that goes and it never stops. And nobody knows what to do with it. And you tape her talk and relisten to it; you will be surprisingly finding it accurate. She is very good, she is very upforward, she is a beautiful woman but trrtrrr... Much faster than that. I mean it goes and nobody knows what to do with it. And once somebody said, "I can't talk to her."

I said, "What she said?"

She said, "I say the same thing," she said, "When you say I understand when she says I don't."

I said, "Well, try to understand what she says."

So the main difficulty in your language is that when a woman talks is there is a tension in her communication or there is not. The identity of woman lies in her politeness in communication. If you take away politeness out of... it is not from which version you are in and what you actually want to say. If the woman takes away politeness out of her communication she has to face the consequences that is called repulsion. And what happens? When you communicate tensed you are repelled. When you are repelled you feel insulted. You feel insulted you feel insecure. You feel insecure you feel angry. You feel angry you get mad. Either you get it out or you get a way to get out. That's the worst you do.

When you become mad you don't say 'I am mad on such and such thing.' That's not woman. She will just sit like a cat and wait and put her paws and wait for the opportunity and then it comes and... and God, if a guy is not ready he says hohooho... and if he is ready he says... and forget it then! No, no. No woman ever has been insulted because she did it wrong. She has been ever insulted but she did it right thing or wrong thing at wrong time in wrong way. You always mess up time and the method. For a good genuine woman requires a good genuine method. What is your strongest way of communication? Politeness. Rudeness is the male's method. Men talk rudely. Believe me or not if you talk rudely you maybe the prettiest woman, you maybe?

Students: Prettiest woman.

YB: That's gone. Pretty and woman, that is gone. Then what you are? Person. Moment women not talk politely she becomes... and then person is a business, I like it; you are a person you like me as a person matter goes on. If you want to continue to identify as a woman doesn't matter you are professional woman, doesn't matter you are a rich woman, doesn't matter you're a beautiful woman, doesn't matter you are ugly woman, you are sick woman, you are healthy woman, you are sexual sensual anything, noble beautiful executive call anything. Moment out of your communication the polite politeness is gone. Politeness?

Students: (-----)

YB: And you are then a person. And moment as a person your commitment is gone you are nothing. If a male shall know that you are neither polite nor committed somehow it may not be true. Please understand me. It may not be?

Students: True.

YB: You are a big zero. And your life shall be nothing but life of a hassle, insecurity, misery, pain. Call it anything. Rest you can add to it. That's why I am bringing these seven year old, eleven year old young girls here to make them feel that they have to deal with me. I am a big six foot two inches, two hundred forty pounds a big guy. You know? It's called grandpa image. If it continues that we will keep these all fortunate girls here, these girls and those girls who will not be in this camp shall be two different girls. They will become ladies. Because they are now getting conscious. It's a matter of conscious and unconscious that's all. If we can make our children conscious that's all we have to do in life.

If we make our children conscious that they are going to be successful if they are going to be beautiful, mannerful, valuable, they will succeed. But if we can't tell them that cannot give them that experience forget it. If a child is treated rough it will bring out of him rudeness. Whenever a woman is treated as a child as rough when she will grow up she will be just as rude as she can be. But if you have been treated roughly and rudely as a child then as a adult don't dish out to others. Rather in compassion become more polite. If you are more polite you are more effective. Arey what is the idea of talking as a woman if you cannot be effective tell me. Am I right or wrong? Haa? You try one day driver's language whole day. Just find out how many people you offend that day. And next day be very polite see how many friends you make.

"Zabaan Sheeri Mulk Geeri."

If the tongue is sweet the world belongs to you. Zabaan means the tongue, Sheeri means sweet. Mulk Geeri, the whole world you can circle the world and that world belongs to you. Now what politeness does to a woman biologically? Haa? No, it keeps you young and healthy. Polite language gives your skin all the vitamins you need. When woman is unpolite her skin becomes rude. Try to understand. Now these are... now I am telling you the glandular game. When you talk rude rough and obnoxious it affects your skin. Temperamental misbehavior when you project out the most sensitive organ your skin has to compensate for it. And if skin is supposed to accelerate itself and change the cells faster than it normally has to then it will not change many cells and that means your skin will become harsher, rougher, and the touch, the feel, will be gone.

You know today I was seeing that oriental beauty that whole thing. And I was seeing that they brought some fans, fans looked like a you know throat cutter, you can't believe it. And you know I just looked around my all hairs on the arm they were standing up. To me fan is a delicacy, it's a delicate thing and the expression of (?) was just it's going to cut somebody's throat. And so affected my skin my all hairs stood up and where they are grown those things became like a parts. That much tension was all over me. Rudeness, roughness, yelling, screaming, all right this is called what you call is fighting nature, you know people fight... communicate and fight? They talk loud. Have you seen those people who talk loud? Haa? What they lose? Haa? Parasympathetic nerve system. All right, people who are angry and talk angrily. Come on.

Student: (----)

YB: No, they can't plan anything. Their power to plan is gone. They can't make two and two four. All right, people who talk bitter, bitter with jealousy, have you seen those curt language, bitter, they talk about that? Haa? They lose their digestive system, ulcers and everything. Yeh (?) human behavior of a woman, it is not just a behavior for another person. Just please remember this. Your misbehavior is not for another person. What this does to other person that is other person's luck. But it does to you that is your luck. And when you misbehave you miss lot of you and that lot of you is woman. You understand that? Arey, you have to understand you should... how many of you have come in my office and seen me? Raise your hands. Have you noticed those statues there? No?

In my room there are lot of statues. Nobody notices them. They are very pretty statues of ladies. Nobody sees them. You follow what I am trying to say? Why you become a statue of a woman, why you not become a living woman? Your problem is I am a woman. That's a statue of a woman. I agree. Statue is a one time thing. Yeah, understand that? You are a living woman. You can't be one time thing. SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Kartar Kaur, you got to give me a report tonight before I go to bed. Otherwise your neck will be on the guillotine. I know. Yeah, you better tell me tonight. Good. Do you understand? Statue is statue. It has eyes, ears, everything. What is missing in a statue tell me?

Students: (-----)

YB: Life. And what is in you?

Students: Life.

YB: And why you want to be a statue? Arey come on, I talk so much to bring you to this point. That is where I wanted to trap you and now you are looking at me. I am saying why you want to become a statue?

Student: (----)

YB: No, no, no. No, no, no, yeah anybody?

Student: (----)

YB: Statues are safe...

Student: (----)

YB: Hey, hey what is this? It's all in west or... woman? (?) says become statue? (?). What are you saying?

Student: (----)

YB: Haa?

Student: (----)

YB: Statues can't?

Students: (-----)

YB: That's why you want to be statues? No, no, what are you saying? Tell me. It's all right, say anything you want to say but say God say something.

Students: (-----)

YB: You don't want to be statues. Then why you are statues? You are not?

Students: (-----)

(Students laugh)

YB: Are you sure?

Students: Yes!

YB: Then why you act wrong at all?

(Students laugh)

This evening you cannot get out of my clutches I am going to bring you right to the point, which I want to bring. Definitely... you go around doesn't matter. You are all very intelligent people I know that. All right, why, if you are not a statue, if you are a living woman, alive, well, radiant, beautiful and you understand your identity why you act wrong, why you act (?) why you act cheap?

Student: (----)

YB: Ego, attention, fear, what else?

Student: (----)

YB: Compensating for our fears.

Student: (----)

YB: Immaturity.

Student: (----)

YB: Fear of success. What else?

Student: (----)

YB: Habit, haa, haa?

Student: (----)

YB: Not enough of exercise.

Student: (----)

YB: Too much ice cream. That's one reason.

Student: (----)

YB: Low self-esteem, that is right. Yeah, no, no, no, one thing. When a woman has low self-esteem, she will act right otherwise none including Almighty God can make a woman act wrong. Low self-esteem.

Students: (-----)

YB: No, when a woman has low self-esteem only then she can act wrong. Otherwise even God Almighty cannot make her act wrong. Inborn in you, inborn in you is the capacity to excel, which is sixteen times more than a man. True. It is a truth. A woman has inborn capacity to excel sixteen times more than a man. If she just has self-esteem that she is a woman there is no power on the Earth, which can make her to do wrong. Yeh tho priceless hai, woman is priceless, you can't buy her, can't hire her, can't... why there are prostitutes? Tell me, explain it to me. They are compensating for their low self-esteem on a very cheap basis. Otherwise you ask a woman what is your price? Forget it! Who is that man and what is that wealth, which can put a price on a woman, not at all. Arey who can put a price on Mary, Fathima? Come on! Can anybody in the world even she is dead? Why? She was the mother of?

Students: (-----)

YB: Mother of Christ. Who can put a price on the life and the value of the mother of GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Guru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. ? Explain it to me. Yeh tho priceless hai! Woman in her capacity as a woman is priceless. Known, it's a established fact. A woman prostitutes herself. There is no power in the woman, in the world, which can defeat a woman. Woman can make a home with the needle; man cannot destroy it with a axe. The capacity... the different capacities, different powers, different energies. Yeah?

Student: (----)

YB: Now what is the difference if woman is grown in America, apple is a apple if it is grown in India or in... apple doesn't become a banana if it grows in America.

Student: (----)

YB: I am asking you question, why we grow up without values? No, this is two hundred year old country. There was a shortage of women and women were supposed to be just a commodity, she was made a doormat, you see all your old movies, a truckload, a cartload, a wagon came of whores, and established whore house and you know do you see all that? So there is a image to exploit women. Born of a woman exploits a woman, that's the funniest thing in the world. It is because it is two hundred year country, there is no respect for a woman, woman is just that image of a whore is still hanging that's why they call woman a chick. That's why we said we will make this chicken a eagle. Some people have left 3HO what was the conflict? What was the conflict?

Can you honestly tell me what was the conflict? We wanted everybody even now and ever to be stronger than ever. We die before we fall. That's the only one line on which conflict will ever come. They say no, we will fall and live. Then they cannot live among us. None of you can live among us. We don't accept it. Dekho, you may all feel yourself weak in one way or other, we all have weaknesses. But one thing you all know, we can't fall and if we fall we have to rise right away. You know I am not saying we don't fall. We fall but what is this 3HO way of life? Before you fall, rise. We are nothing but the total believer of resurrection.

We may not have erection, but we have resurrection capacity so much... I am true with you, I am just frank. Our capacity of resurrection is what 3HO is. Those who shall believe in erection they will live somewhere else. And those who will believe in resurrection will always be with us doesn't matter what. Err is a human, blunder and mistake can happen the glory of the man is to correct and walk again. That's the test of life. This cycle will continue of people coming and going, people falling and... all right, suppose caravan is going on. Suppose?

Students: Caravan is going on.

YB: Have you seen the film on the retreat of the French, Napoleon soldier from Russia? It was a terrible winter, they got defeated, they retreated and they blew up the bridges, they couldn't go back, they didn't have anything. At one moment they burnt their flag, French flag to just get a heat. I mean to that capacity. It is said about Napoleon soldiers they got defeated. You understand what I am saying? They got defeated. But they never got defeated even in their retreat. Why Napoleon is a hero? Have you understood this ever? There was a man who got... took on the France, did the whole thing, got defeated, was imprisoned but he had that capacity, a human powerful capacity that he could inspire his people to rise before they even fell.

What is KundaliniKundalini Comes from the word "kundal"; coiled energy; the creative potential of an individual. Kundalini Yoga It is a Raaj Yoga that creates vitality in the body, balance in the mind, and openness to the spirit. It is used by the householder, busy in the world, to create immediate clarity. The fourth Guru in the Sikh tradition, Guru Ram Das, was acknowledged as the greatest Raaj Yogi. (See Raaj Yogi.) He opened this long secret tradition to all.

We don't guarantee that there will not be a fall. We are not guaranteeing you at all. I am not saying. After twenty minutes I am not going to meet a obnoxious person. But I know I am not going to give up my nobility. I am not saying to you the environments are going to be all perfect for you. But I am saying to you, you are going to act perfect. A woman who believes to be a woman and acts as a woman shall always be worshipped and respected because doesn't matter come she shall resurrect herself. Resurrection is the law of life. Resurrection?

Students: Is the law of life.

YB: And that is the base... what is that... you put a statue on what they call that base?

Students: (-----)

YB: Haa?

Students: Pedestal.

YB: That is pedestal of the living being. It is in genuineness of a woman, it is in?

Students: (-----)

YB: Genuineness of a woman she is born to resurrect because she is born to create, because she is a channel of ShaktiShakti The creative power and principle of existence itself. Without it nothing can manifest or bloom. It is feminine in nature. , because all humanity is born out of a woman God made her that way therefore no woman can fall. Falling of a woman is never falling of a woman. Statues fall. Statues?

Students: Fall.

YB: Statues break. Statues' heart gets broken. Woman heart throbs in compassion. Her psyche meditates. Woman has a meditating psyche. God-given psyche. Her child maybe anywhere. When he is hungry, she gets the milk. Is that true or not? So what are you asking me for? Why should I teach you? Is it not that you know? You believe me or not once I was on a tour, I was somewhere; I came back after few days. One of my lady inspector looked at me and she said, "Thank you, you have come back safe."

I said, "How you know?"

She said, "I knew it."

I said, "What you know I know it? Somebody must have told you."

She said, "Who? Your party has not yet come."

I looked around, I said, "That's true. How you know?"

She said, "No, three days ago you were attacked. Wasn't it?"

I said, "Yeah."

She said, "I was taking the breakfast, and I just felt something has happened to you."

It's no miracle; a ordinary psyche of a ordinary woman can reach out in every direction where she is a protective seal. How can anybody damage you? You can protect a person across the world. Because you have the capacity of a beam of a... you forgot that day I told you. Your 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. can?

YB: Your 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. can?

Students: (-----)

YB: That's God-given gift to you as a woman. You may not use it, that's not the problem. You may not know it, nobody has told you, isn't it? How can you not know this? If the calf is ten miles away hungry cow will run to the home. How come? Haa? I was taking a lunch with somebody today and the lady got up and she said I am going to call and moment she came back who was there... you must have called for the child. Next. She said, "Yeah, he is hungry. I wanted to know." Because child was hungry I think about three-four miles away and she could feel while eating the food. There is nothing you have to know, you all know. You may not use it. You understand? Now is it something serious I have said? Why you are so serious? Haa? Something gone wrong? Looks like. What's the matter?

Students: (-----)

YB: Why not? Arey something, which can turn your blood into milk, something, which is so wireless that at miles your child, your husband, your lover, your knowledge and acknowledge of defense can make you feel and act at reality? You can even make a picture what is going on. What was the name of that lady, which they sent from Afghanistan...

Student: (----)

(YB in Punjabi)

YB: Well, Bibiji will tell you that story tomorrow somehow. There was a woman in the Fort of Jamrud. I forget her name, when they were all circled and enemy Afghans were all around to kill them, and they asked her, "Can you go and tell Lahore durbar that we cannot hold more than two days? That's it. Enemy is stronger and deaths are many and we are left few and this Fort of Jamrud will go. And if the army doesn't come and help..."

She said, "I can go and I can tell you tomorrow, tomorrow exactly at the dawn time a cannon will be fired. Then take it granted I have reached. And that means army will come and help you."

They said, "But how you know that you will reach?"

She said, "Be sure, I'll reach. There is no way I'll be caught."

They said, "No, no, no, no, you are a woman forget it. We will send some smart man."

She said, "Don't send any man. Send me. I'll do it."

They said, "How?"

She said, "I am sensitive enough that I know where enemy is entrenched. And I can make my way. Secondly, I can run like a dog on my four, hands and legs."

He said, "How come you have practiced that?"

She said, "I have practiced it. Don't worry."

She said, "Fire a cannon at the dawn of the Sun."

Distance was long. So they took a horse cannon, you know what is a horse cannon? A cannon, which goes on two horses. They tie it between the two horses and they run together, they are trained. So they made heavy distance as much as they could in two hours, there was two to three hours between the Sun dawn. And when the Sun came little up they thought from here the cannon fire can be heard, they fired. Meanwhile the forces moved and Jamrud didn't surrender. Just her sensitivity she could totally clearly went through the enemy's line and made it. Greatest power of woman is sensitivity, not complaining.

(Students laugh)

Your power is in complaining. 'You didn't ask me, you don't love me, you don't take care of me, you don't pay attention to me' and all that stuff. It's all bracketed, bracket A, category A, schedule A. Complaining. That you love. Love to complain. That's the polarity of sensitivity. You understand? You won't complain any more?

Student: (----)

YB: Was I not overloaded?

Students: Yes.

I don't feel like lecturing even today. And those attendant girls told him not to go. He said, "But what I have to do I have to do."

For him there was no death, what was revolver? He was shot, he said, "Hey Ram!" Oh God! And he died. Absolute peaceful. Yeh tha fear for us hai Na. Moment you touch your soul you become fearless. Don't touch your soul; deal it from the point of soul that I have a soul. You will never have fear. Fear, pain, hurt only comes to you when you are not dealing the life in the light of your soul. You are dealing the light of ego. Pain will be there, hurt will be there, everything will be there. Yeah.

Student: (----)

YB: Now people who do not fight when they have to fight they become fat. Aha!

(Students laugh)

It is true. You know if you see my picture in India you will find me the most skinny guy ever you have seen. I used to be like this. But my weight was not less. With all the weight you can count every rib and every bone in my life, perfect. Since I came in America I started dealing with people I don't want to react. I stopped reacting. I gained weight. That is the biological compensation you go through. Have you seen those people who are just like... haa? Provoke them, they won't. Somehow because of one reason or the other they don't want to fight, there won't be at anybody's... but they are angry.

Student: (----)

YB: No, I also told you to walk five miles.

Student: (----)

YB: Three?

Student: (----)

YB: Make it five.

No, no, no, no, he is the one who fight with you, he is not here. What you are going to... you are not going to get fat here at all. They love to fight with each other. That is their recreation. He loves her, she loves him. But they fight. And I love when they fight. Because next morning I get a phone call and I tell them don't fight and they don't fight. That's all they do, it's beautiful. Okay one, two, three, four, start here. You. Aha!

Student: (----)

Student: (----)

YB: Oh very simple. When a man is fat and you want him to fight, take him on a long walk.

YB: What? Loud.

Student: (----)

YB: How to help make a man committed? It's so simple. A committed woman will not have to utter one word. Your total conversation with man that he should be a committed man does not mean a thing. If you are committed man gets the message on every second. They get committed faster than you even can feel them. Men have no commitment at all. Aha, honest to God. There is no man born who can be committed. Don't expect from them. Yeh faculty hai ni... it is not man's faculty to be committed, how you can make him committed? How you can... there can be a strong wood but it can't be steel. Men can never be committed. They don't have a faculty. It is the committed woman who can have a committed man. Man is equally committed in proportion to the commitment of the woman as the life goes on. It's true. You commit two hundred percent; man will be committed two hundred percent. You commit twenty percent man will be committed twenty percent. What next? Who? Yeah.

Student: (----)

YB: By drinking water! Aha. It's a very immediate treatment. Cold water. Take a glass of cold water and you will be surprised what happens to your anger.

Yes?

Student: (----)

YB: How woman beams out? Her sensitivity beams out. Her domain is not in miles; her woman domain is not in time and space. It is not in miles and by hours. It is her mental intuitive self. She rules over her domain. She is the creative mother. Husband, child, relatives, everything. It's all under the domain of woman. And if she fixes her mind she beams out and when she beams out her beam is strong enough to heal the situation. Haa?

Student: (----)

YB: Yeah, parasympathetic nervous system people who are nagging wives, they lose parasympathetic nervous system. Stop nagging and take B12 and you can recuperate in shortest possible time.
