Siri Singh SahibSiri Singh Sahib Honorary title given to Yogi Bhajan to indicate his role as spiritual leader of Sikh Dharma in the West. His complete title within Sikh Dharma is Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji. , Bibiji, Secretary General, Ladies and Gentlemen, and children of all ages, the theme for the luncheon this morning is appreciation and personally I really do appreciate being here, it's been a transforming experience for me, and I am sure it's been for everyone. As a matter of fact this morning after 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. I was taking a walk on the golf course and it was very mystical and misty. And I have to share with you, I had a kind of a religious experience about the ninth tee, the ninth tee is a very difficult tee and I saw Moses and Jesus Christ playing golf out there. And they worked it out and it was decided that Moses was going to go first and this tee is very hard in order to get on the green you first have to hit over two islands, two bodies of water, and a very tall palm tree. So Moses went first and he took his shot, hit a tremendous shot went over both bodies of water and landed on the second island. And now is Jesus Christ's turn, and he went up there and he said, "You know Moses that was a great shot but I am going to beat you, I am going to hit the ball on to the green."

And Moses said, "No way, no way, there is no way that you can hit the ball that far."

And Jesus said, "You know I was watching T.V. last week and I saw Arnold Palmer do it, and I know I can make this shot." So he got the club and he addressed the ball and he took his shot and it was a tremendous shot, went over the first body of water, over the first island, over the second body of water, over the second island, almost made it to the green, hit the top of the palm tree, rolled down on to the dirt, into the water. And Moses said, "See, I told you, you couldn't make that shot."

And Jesus said, "Don't worry I will get a penalty shot, I am going to get my club." So he got his club, he got his snorkel and he started walking out across the water. And just then another golf cart pulled up, and a guy got out and he started looking out across the water and he saw Jesus walking across the water and he kind of walked up to Moses and he said, "Who does that guy think he is, Jesus Christ?"

And Moses said, "No, he thinks he is Arnold Palmer." So with great appreciation I would like to introduce the musicians here today to play some songs for you, and if they come up now, we will have the musicians and then some awards and then the children will come up, thank you very much.

Member: Now our brother from Brazil GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Dev Singh would like to share some of his local music, which is very beautiful. It's a composition by him.

GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Dev Singh: I just wanted to explain that everywhere we go, I am sure that in different countries we always have to try to adapt to the music of the area so that the teachings and what we are trying to convey will come across much clearer, there will be a clearer channel.

And so what I am going to play here is a type of a Samba rhythm and it's, since I am going to sing it in Portuguese I just want to give you an idea what its about, and what it is about is the person that has come in contact with the NamNaam , Nam The manifested identity of the essence. The word derives from Naa-ay-ma , which means "that which is not, now is born." A Naam gives identity, form, and expression to that which was only essence or subtle before. It is also referred to as the Word. , has come contact with his consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. and he is realizing that so many things were being done and played out only through the unconscious ego and now that he is beginning to realize and beginning to have more 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. about himself that he is seeing all of the mind games and trips that his mind was playing before. And so the name of this song is, 'Mevo heygo sistaake shaandho,' which means my ego is complaining.

Singh: Next portion of the program is the award ceremony, the actual appreciation ceremony, and we have a number of awards, it's usual it's difficult to determine who you are going to honor because everybody is so deserving but we do have one award that is particularly dear and particularly timing. And what they say is this is for the world's greatest businessman, and we humbly would like to present this to Siri Singh SahibSiri Singh Sahib Honorary title given to Yogi Bhajan to indicate his role as spiritual leader of Sikh Dharma in the West. His complete title within Sikh Dharma is Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji. from the Khalsa Council to the world's greatest businessman.

(Members clap...)

YB: Actually I am not, I am not that yet, wait, wait, wait, (Members continue clapping...), all right, all right, all right, I got it, I got the message. Actually business is nothing but a process of life, it is meant to grow in permutation and combination in the consistent frequency and proportions to mental relevance that is the secret of business, and it's a formula, which we must adapt. And in a mathematical term, first I described it in scientific terms but in mathematical terms the mind applied in proportion to the planning of the supply and demand and projecting to the quality and the market nerve is the process of success to which business is related to, and you can call it anyways or many ways.

When this present was being given I thought you are going to give it to Gurjyoth because he solves bankrupt businesses and that takes a harder work and tolerance, which is beyond the concept. In business concept there are certain personalities, which I call business personalities. In our community there are lot of personalities, which have lot of business edge towards it. Some people are very conservative that they sit back and they never move that's not business but there has to be a business capacity like, you can be a republican orthodox like Hari Jeevan and still have the bulls horn in your hand and not bothered what people like you or dislike you.

There is another problem, which you have you play emotional game with businesses, businesses don't care whether you like yourself or you dislike yourself. Business is do you serve the time and the space and you grab the opportunity honestly or not. Business doesn't care what your statement is and remember business do not belong to refugees, refugee belongs to the businesses. That I have seen in a practical experiment when in east Pakistan, west Pakistan, we were thrown back to east Pakistan we were all refugees and basically we all were rich, we run that Punjab, we were the landlords and we were the businessmen, and we were the manufacturers, and we were the factory owners, and they were all Sikhs.

The entire business community was with the Sikhs, we came to east Punjab and we found the most barren land. East Punjab was so beautiful that people used to sleep in Lahore and wake up in Delhi they never opened the eyes during the whole journey. It was nothing but a barren land most poor, and today it's the bread basket of the world, and it feeds entire India, refugees did it because they had the business sense. About business sense I can tell you we are such a good businessmen that the presence of ours bothers people. You talk of slander, you talk of deceit, you talk of all those things, I want to tell you something we are so beautiful in business of life that we offend everything.

I have never seen a good candle burning and thousands of moths not coming down there but in business sense, I have one word to say to you, even God loves good business, thank you.
