You are a dash, dash, dash, fill in. Why not, you are a freak. You are Americans and Germans and this and that and you are western and whatever you are, but unfortunately, you absolutely have no memory who you are. I have to come twelve thousand miles from India, mess up my life, absolutely true and eat the dirt everyday and go through the worst a man can go, just to remind you that you are a human being. I have done nothing. Neither I believe in anything more than this or less than this. If you can remember that you are a human being, you can survive through everything, doesn't matter how adversity is upon you.

The day you find you are this, you are that, it is this, it is that, I am girl, I am boy, I am this, I am young, I am old, I am doctor, I am PhD, I am psychologist, I am naturopath, I am sex grinding machine, whatever you are, it doesn't matter to me. The fundamental thing a man can afford in his life, fundamental, I am talking of a requirement, doesn't matter what you are doing and what the environments or circumstances or you are black, white, yellow, pink, red, orange, whatever you are, beautiful, ugly, take everything as it is. Just remember, you are a human and so long you breathe, God is in you. Just a thought. This thought is gian this thought is knowledge. There is no other thought. I have no disciple but I have a discipline and very few people can follow discipline. You want to become disciple, you want a teacher, you want a relationship, you mess it left, right, upside, down, whatever you want to do and you satisfy your emotions, your feelings, but you do not satisfy one thing called Identity. You don't. It's a human tragedy.

It's not that you love me. Over ten million people love me and I don't love anybody, I don't have to, because, I don't have to lie. When you say you love me, you lie, when I say I love you it is a lie. Where there is love, there is no question, where there is a question there is no love. How many of you question not your love, name it. How many you are not emotional? How many you do not enjoy your commotions? How many people you do not trap each other? How many of you just believe in one thing, what is that greatest thing to believe? Fill in.

A truth is nothing. Truth is just a gimmick. Who says truth is anything, my truth, your truth, our truth, their truth, total truth, infinite truth, there are sixty-nine varieties of life. Twenty- two Baskin Robins, Robin or Baskin, truth has many varieties, every person has his own truth. As you have your teeth, you have your truth. And everybody stick to it, I have truth. What is a truth? All right, you know the guts, struck yourself, I want to tell third number, what is true? God, what doesn't play any part? What is truth? Huh? Every breath of life is the truth, how you use it, that's your option.

I do not know how much brainwashed you are, you make everything complicated. Make. Things are not make as you think. Everything is done to get the money from you and to live off you. Every church, every minister, every religion, it is always there. You know what I mean? So you are being told things. I have to impress you that I am wiser than you. The most stupid thing in life is to impress another person you are wise. Because, it's a cheating. To doubt the caliber of another human being is the biggest deceitful act of a human. All what happens is, one person is awakening, one person is awake and one person is sleeping. And you can help each other. You cannot do to each other, I am teaching you, you are learning from me, there is no such thing.

Everything in this world is shared. Everything is equal. Life is give and take. Life is very beautiful, Even in adversity life is beautiful. In calamity life is beautiful. Life is that breath of life. So long you breathe you are alive and as you are alive, you have to live and as you live you can live complicate, complicatively or very straight. When you complicate yourself? When you have emotions, commotions and etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.

What is in your life which you have no control on? Tell me. What is in your life on which you have no control?

Student: (---)

YB: The smell of another human being.

Students: (Laugh)

YB: I mean, you are nuts, what happened to you? I was teaching you so many years. Where are you? Don't you understand? You have no control on the smell and the effect of the psyche of another person. No control whatsoever. Even God can't interfere. You see somebody first time, (?) and you do, you have no control.

Students: (Laugh)

YB: And if you dare not to say hello, you go round and round. You cheats, sheepish, clever clergies, quite, quite, everybody is a holy man who has nine holes and thing is which hole you want to get in. That's all it is. This is a whole game, it's not, it's not your, you are not a one piece. That's why we say,

"Ang Sang 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. ."

God be with every limb of ours, we doubt it, if He is with the head, legs can do something different. So we request, our prayer is, "Ang Sang 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. ." You understand? This is the only one prayer among the Sikhs, which nobody understands what it means. It means, with every limb, God stay with us. Limb by limb, not total, because nobody knows what the total is doing. Nobody knows what head is doing and nobody knows what shoulders are doing, nobody... I sometime sit down and people are talking and then all of a sudden I say, because head is gone somewhere else. Person is gone. You are not in you. Alice does not live here anymore.

Students: (Laugh)

YB: It's true. And you are always proud, I am doctor, I am 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. JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. , I am engineer, I am so and so, I am beautiful girl. Whatever you are today, what you are today, next minute you are not. Next second you are not.

I went to doctor Soram to check my blood, he took almost a little, tiny drop and then he put in a microscope and there was tons and tons of those wild white things running around, eating cells, I mean to say, I saw a second world war myself over there in one cell. It was worth seeing. It was amazing what goes on in you and my feeling at that time came to me that if we are so insensitive what is going on in us, how humongously we are insane and insensitive, what is going outside us. I mean we are just insensitive.

What is the greatest act in your life? Come on, huh? Meeting 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. , come on, huh?

Student: (---)

YB: Getting up from the bed.

Students: (Laugh)

YB: It is the greatest act of the humans to wake up. To wake up. If you don't wake up, good bye, adios, they are no more, nothing to it. Meeting 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. , as you have said, is very rare. Serving 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. is impossible. It's not anybody's and everybody's affair. Because, God is forgiving and God is everywhere and you can project it anyway. If you a human happen to be your teacher or a 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. , whatever you call him, he is going to do one thing to you, which you cannot even stand. Whatever you are doing he give you something impossible. There are two teachers in life one, you can adapt and other is, always there. One is a human teacher which, where your trust can be. There is nothing important in this life, but except three things, trust, trust and trust. So, you trust somebody, you trust somebody, that's it, there is no problem or there is a teacher called Time. You can't escape. Teacher is there. One you learn from time or you learn from a teacher and if he is not a preacher, he is a teacher, that one is worst than time.

You are eating, he asked, "What are you eating?"

"Oh I am eating rice and yogurt, whatever you want to call it."

"Don't eat."

There is no logic, there is no reason, there is no quality of circumstances, just an order, don't eat.

It's very funny, I saw a teacher and a very funny one. I met him and one of the disciple was very hungry. We came for about, you say, four, five hours ride and we were hungry and he said, "First, let us get to food."

That's what he said to me.

I said, "But why don't you try first? Because, this is your ashramAshram , Aashram A community of practitioners who come together to live conscious, mindful lives. , you know where it is and I'll just sit down and..."

I knew that, if I am served, it's fine I should not try. So, anyway. So, he went and he brought a beautiful plate of food for me and served me and also brought a good plate for himself. So, his teacher appeared and we stood for reverence and he said, "You are eating?"

He said, "Yes sir."

"Oh, no, give this food to this dog, the dog is hungry."

So, he put the plate before the dog. Dog was really hungry.

Students: (Laugh)

YB: And in seconds, the food was gone. Then I started eating slowly and he came and he said, "No, no, no, you please eat and don't spare anything for him."

He realized that as a friend, I may try to eat little and try to save something for the for my host.

So, he said, "No, no, please, you just finish what you are eating."

So, I looked at the situation, I said, "This guy is not going to let him eat, doesn't matter what."

I watched whole day very observantly, anytime this guy was going to eat, he give him something else.

Finally, at about seven O'clock, he told me, he said, "I am going to faint. I am very hungry and it is a very rough day, what should I do?"

I said, "I am going to do something and you just follow that."

He said, "What is that?"

I said, "You see that watermelon over there?"

He said, "Yeah."

I said, "I am going to throw it down, it will break. You get into it and eat and I'll be in other room talking to your teacher. That's the only diversion possible, otherwise guy, you have no chance."

He said, "Do it soon."

I said, "Okay."

So I went, I took the watermelon and threw it on the ground and he got to it like a dog and he just started eating. I went in and I found his teacher coming and I said, "I have come to have audience with you and I have few questions."

And in the middle of the question, he said, "Has he eaten the watermelon?"

I asked him, I said, "Yeah."

I said, "You knew it."

He said, "Yeah. Question is, I don't like people to come hungry. There is food here it is his own. But I didn't like he came without grace. He should have come and he served you the food, he served himself his food, that's fine. But from three months, he has started thinking he is hungry. I don't like this thinking. I don't like handicap."

I still remember it. Whenever you think handicap, you make yourself handicap, you make yourself sick, you make yourself weak, you make yourself, you are cruel to yourself. There is no problem, you may look beautiful, but when you think you are ugly and you are going to look beautiful. Being beautiful is nothing wrong or being more beautiful is nothing wrong, but when you already have a thought that you are ugly, you have messed up your physical system. You pressurize yourself to weakness. Every thought in which you handicap yourself, handicaps you affectively and your brain is forced to deal with it and the energy is so wasted, opens you to sickness. And, this is one thing you don't get tired. What is that? I am freezing I am starving...

Student: I don't know.

YB: I don't know, something like that. How you can say that? Why you say those things? You know how stupid it sounds when you say I don't know? I don't know. And the other sick thing is, I can't say. God, you have such a long tongue and a full mouth, I can't say. You know how much energy, mental energy, damaging energy you create when you act like a zombie? Have you any idea? You know, you might be trying to enlighten yourself, I tell you simple enlighten method, so long the past has shadow on you, you have no enlightenment. Moment you drop the past as a shadow you are enlightened. Even sun cannot penetrate through clouds. Past is just clouds and any cloudy living is no good.

God made you to be you are and God is perfect and you are perfect in the worst of you. Action has a reaction, you must learn the art of resurrection. Living in karmaKarma The law of cause and effect applied to mental, moral, and physical actions. Ego attaches us to and identifies us with objects, feelings, and thoughts. These attachments create a bias toward certain lines of action. Instead of acting you begin reacting. Karmas are the conditions required in order to balance or complete these tendencies. Though necessary, karma is not dictatorial or fatalistic. It is the mechanism that allows the finite experience of existence to maintain and stabilize itself. We all have free will and can take actions to re-direct the momentum of a karma. We can transform it or neutralize it using meditation, jappa, good deeds, or intuition that remove your sense of ego and the identification with that past line of action. is very insulting, living in karmaKarma The law of cause and effect applied to mental, moral, and physical actions.

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. is just resurrect. As the situation is, go little higher, not much, just little, look at it, look at it. If somebody trust you, don't let down. Somebody loves you, don't let down and of all, don't let down yourself. Never letdown yourself and never let down anybody and doesn't matter how odd the circumstances are, God shall come through, take it granted. That is 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. .

If you cannot see God in all, you cannot see God at all. And everything is God and you have not to believe it, you have not to experience it. Don't pretend that you do a special effort it is true. Bad and good, all is God, small and big, all is God and I give you one proof, God rotates this earth, easily can take care of your routine. If the wind is behind you and the tide winds are taking your lifeboat in the full ocean, in the height of speed have gratitude be grateful. If it is the storm and things are into the face of death and life, and you are hustling to make it, do it with gratitude, that you are facing a challenge in life. Either, you are facing a challenge in life, things are too good for you or you are facing a challenge in life, things are too rotten for you. Both ways, it's you, in the beginning, in the middle and in the end, there cannot be anything else. Neither was, nor is, nor shall be.

Today, we have to do a very classic 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. , we are trying to control the front lobe. Actually, my only effort is to prepare you for the Aquarian AgeAquarian Age The next in a succession of astrological ages each lasting roughly 2,000 years. Fully inaugurated in ad 2012, the Aquarian Age will witness a radical change in consciousness, human sensitivity, and technology. The central change of this new age emphasizes an increased sensitivity and evolution of our power of awareness and a new relationship to our mind. . I can't help to feel that many of you shall not be with us. Because, you cannot predict and I cannot predict, because, when the change happens and the wavelength of the human psyche changes and some can handle and some can't. The idea is to prepare you for that that there should be no such disaster and you will come through it in a very clean way, that's what we are trying to. The frequency has to change, that you can't stop, but if you just go ahead of it, it will not affect your life.

So, the personality of a human is controlled by the front lobe and the automatics are controlled by the hypothalamus. For hypothalamus there is a japa and for the frontal lobe there is a meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness. Meditation releases reactions and unconscious habits and build the spontaneous and intuitive link to awareness itself. . That's why, 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. yogaKundalini Yoga It is a Raaj Yoga that creates vitality in the body, balance in the mind, and openness to the spirit.

It is the set of the front lobe, which control your personality and you will just do the pattern again, again and again, because that pattern is set here. You cannot change the pattern by counseling and by this and that. You can break the pattern by rewriting it. And tonight, we will rewrite the pattern, I mean it and I want you to participate, it will be painful, you just don't cheat, all right? Normally, you were excusive, I always feel that you will cheat sixty percent and do forty percent. If you just do the other way today, it will be nice, all right? Understand? Correct?

All right, please sit down and stretch your spine, I am giving you the posture. This is my left hand, I am asking the heavens to be in touch. This is my right hand, I am asking the earth to be in touch, I am balancing it right now. No big deal. It's very easy that way, posture wise and please close your eyes and look at your chin. You may see something white running around, so long you hold the color blue and white, you are doing a good job. Put the every breath of, don't expect too much result but when you will reach the twilight zone, you will find a humungous situation. Your eyeballs must be turned around and look at your chin from closed eyes and the balance will take care of itself, spine should be straight. Don't bend the spine, because you will relax very fast and we don't want you to misunderstand.

(Tape "Every breath of life..." is stopped)

YB: Inhale deep, hold the breath and every fiber of your body quench it, squeeze it, every part of it. From toe to top, solidify yourself, so that energy can be distributed. Exhale. Inhale deep. Do the same consciously, voluntarily, let the skull, the hair roots to the nails of toe feel that you are in command, let it go. Once more, inhale deep, hold the breath, go again, use your force, use your will, be in command, please, relax.

There are five elements and there are five senses, there are ten bodiesTen Bodies We are all spiritual beings having a human experience. In order to have this experience the spirit takes on 10 bodies or vehicles. They are the Soul Body, the three Mental Bodies (Negative, Positive, and Neutral Minds), the Physical Body, Pranic Body, Arcline Body, Auric Body, Subtle Body, and Radiant Body. Each body has its own quality, function, and realm of action. and there are hundred eight basic elements on the universe and there are stars and there are millions and millions of the angels and zillions and zillions of the ghosts.

When you depress yourself, when deal with nonsense and create nonsense, then you totally synchronize yourself to absolutely nothing and open yourself to every kind of weakness and disease.

Therefore, my friends walk tall or don't walk at all. Living in insult and self-insult is a treachery to life. Life is a gift, don't create the rift between you and God. If sometime, there is odd time, just understand even time is on the corner. Because, after every rainstorm there is a sunshine. Remember, life is nothing but a chance to experience ecstasy. And you waste that. I mean, do you understand, if you look like very genuinely sober, and effective and bright and sage like and talk wisely and just be nice, that's all it takes to impress everybody automatically, you don't have to play any game.

There is a question in your life, to be, not to be. There is an answer to it, let it be. So long you live to be, not to be, you are a rascal, you are stupid, you are messing up this beautiful gift of your own life, not anybody's and once you decide it is because it is. To be is to be. You will be free. Good and bad, happy and sad, are all in the mind. Mind can grind you but, if you just rise above it, the mind will serve you and mind can be enslaved, totally trained like an elephant. It's a big huge thing, I am not saying, it is something very small, but with the mantraMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind.

That's how beautiful you can be.

Where there is an ego, there is no amigo, because ego binds you, it binds you all right, but it limits you too. It totally tights you up, it puts you in the pit. Then, everything has to penetrate your ego or you can't move.

You know, I am 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. , bah-bah-bah, I have a security problem, whatever you think, but I do come one O'clock to the Hacienda de Guru Ram Das , The Ashram The grounds of Yogi Bhajan's traditional home and ranch in Espanola, NM, as well the surrounding businesses, gurdwara and langar hall. ashramHacienda de Guru Ram Das , The Ashram The grounds of Yogi Bhajan's traditional home and ranch in Espanola, NM, as well the surrounding businesses, gurdwara and langar hall. Ashram , Aashram A community of practitioners who come together to live conscious, mindful lives. . I am free. And people without confirmation note, you can't get an appointment call try it. They will give you run around, it's busy and I am busy, it's true. I have work. But what about one O'clock when I am there, then anybody talks to me, I talk to them, they tell me not to, it's not that they don't tell me, no, go, go, I say, nahi, I just want to see this person. What they can tell me? Hang me for it? And once they will talk, just give a smile.

Yesterday, I met somebody and saw a face, I said, "Hey, change your face."

That's all I said.

Person laughed off, "Ha, ha, ha." He said.

I said, "That's it. Good, looks good. Feel good?"

He said, "Yeah."

I said, "That's it. It's a answer to your question."

What is so serious? Breath of life is coming, what is so serious?

I came to United States, I never had a penny, I never had friend, I don't know anybody. I didn't write letter to anybody, come, I am a teacher, I'll teach you, neither I said, "Go away."

No, never done anything. All I said is, I have not come here to initiate students, I have come here to create teachers for tomorrow. There shall be no sorrow. People don't understand my message, fine, it's their problem.

Once somebody said to me, "Where I should teach?"

I said, "You have three children, become their teacher. Your students are right born in your own home."

If you do not teach your children, nobody shall teach them. Don't raise your children, teach your children.

"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 Mata, 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 Pita, 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 Swamy Parameshwara"

Mother is the teacher, father is the teacher, the master is the teacher, God is the teacher. Everything done in this planet is to teach us directly and indirectly. It's a law of the nature the young will try to put the old out, that's the law. You can't avoid it. But students will respect the teacher because the student is going to be teachers tomorrow itself. Can't afford a rebellion. If the stupid student is rebellious, his students will be always rebellious he can't afford this game. So, if the parents have their children as student, they shall not rebel. Otherwise, the young bull will throw the old bull out.

You know, I have seen these children born in my hand, they did not know how to change diapers, right? Now, they don't want to wear a bra and underwear. What went wrong? What happened? What they have seen? Why they are refusing to cover themselves with wisdom? When a man refuses to cover himself and herself with wisdom, man is a naked before the devil and that's the end of life. Your cover is not all what you are wearing, your cover is your wisdom and your wisdom is spontaneous, it's a practice. Love is a simple defined thing. Where there is a love, there is no question. Where there is a question, there is no love. That's a business. It's a bargain. Once you start bargaining in life, forget it.

You know, it's very funny, I go to flea market in Santa Fe, they know I am a cutthroat bargainer, everybody knows.

So they say, "Okay, this is the price. You want it or you don't want it."

And I look around, I say, "Okay, that's fine, we'll take it."

Because, if they start telling me the price which they normally tell, I'll bring them to the point they will say, "Take it and leave me alone, we don't want you to buy here."

So now everybody recognized and it's also funny, again, I said, "You got something?"

He said, "I have kept something for you. This is what it is, I brought for this much and this much I want."

I said, "Okay, that's fine, that's fair."

There was a new guy, I saw a purse, it's a crocodile purse, very artistic and absolutely costly.

I said, "What do you want?"

He said, "Twenty bucks."

I gave him twenty dollars I picked it up.

He said, "You don't want to bargain?"

I said, "You gave me two thousand dollar purse, now I should bargain for twenty dollars."

He said, "What do you mean?"

I said, "You do not know what you are selling. The deal is deal, you asked twenty dollars, right? I gave it to you it's mine now. Now you want to buy it back?"

He said, "But how much you sell it for?"

I said, "Three thousand bucks."

"Oh, it's that costly?"

I said, "Yes. 1940's crocodile, marshaled skin. It was only produced in France. It comes from the dead old crocodile, they have to let crocodile live his old life, you know what I mean? So that skin may become self standard."

"How you know?"

I said, "That's my problem, not yours."

So, what I am telling you is, technically if you know something, remember, life is a chance and love is infinity and grace is reality. Repeat it.

Students: Life is a chance and love is infinity and grace is reality.

YB: I have to give you new definitions. Say it again.

Students: Life is a chance and love is infinity and grace is reality.

YB: If you can remember these three things you can never be in trouble. What are those three things, which can make you, trouble free?

Students: Life is a chance and love is infinity and grace is reality.

YB: Because, life is a chance. So then once you know it's a chance, you will put hundred percent in it. Body automatically comes through. Your mind, soul and body all will take it. Word chance triggers the most potent thing, in man. The love is?

Students: Infinity.

YB: There is no question. Love is not for gain and loss, love is not for good and bad, love is not for right and wrong, love is for love. Third?

Students: Grace is reality.

YB: Any reality you have is, when before the most disgraceful attack, you remain grace. You did not let your grace go. Think of it. GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. says,

"Jiyath mushkal apne thohi koyi na de, lagu huveyee Bishwantah Sakveye pajakale, Paje Sabhi Asre, Chuke Sab draw, Sataveyee spar Roon, lage na thathi wa"

If the circumstances are awesome, terrible, bad, relatives have left, there is no shelter, there is no place to deal with, still man keeps his grace, nothing will touch that man. Your value is not your bank balance and your lies and not your young age and not your cleverness. Your life is how graceful you are, when there is not a chance. Not a chance, not a chance. When you let your grace go, you kill your soul. So, you are okay? You are relaxed and satisfied?

Students: (----)

YB: You have come out of the earthquakes syndrome? Oh, you know, earthquakes, these earthquakes are, earthquakes are just physical phenomenon, you should not mind earthquakes, because you have your own earthquakes every minute and lot of earthquakes. You know, you have quakes. Your earth moves like, I can't believe. I sit back and sometime wonder, what has gone wrong that you have forgotten not to sing the song of life.

So we came and we taught and shared and you came and you learnt. My only advise is, be learned. There is no more beautiful and decorated identity of a person but to be learned. The joy being learned is such a joy, there is nothing more to it and what is the formula to become learned? Anybody knows? Just utter no word which brings you disgrace, you are learned. Simple stuff. Add and subtract nothing from your life, which add disgrace to you. Not for the sake of this or that, na, na, na, na, no temptation. That you always know what is graceful and always be full of grace. I do not know anything else which could have kept me through all this except on thing, whenever there is a, confrontation I always know I have to fall on the side of grace, not on the side of advantage, disadvantage, commotions, emotions, temporary or permanent gain, nahi, no. Don't let write it down. Don't let grace go, God won't let you go. It's so simple.

So, you are going to come to New Mexico?

Student: Yes.

YB: Yes. Well, well, we will see you in New Mexico and come and on this, on this peace prayer day, we are going to honor Maa Jaya for all that noble work she has done and huh?

Student: (---)

YB: June 19th. And there is another announcement. 3HO foundation is now a part of United Nations, NGO, Non Government Organization and we have been not only accepted, we have been invited to a Cairo conference, where President vice-president Gore is going to be head of our American delegation. We are entitled to go. And this is, I think, you have to go, you have to call Bibi JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. , she has been selected to speak on the youth and youth problems. So we are going and I think, it is forty dollars a day and you will stay in the Nasir town, in Egypt in Cairo and they will provide, it is a state thing, you will be provided all the facilities and I think, there is x amount of money which they charge for you concessional or you can make your own arrangements to reach there and Bibi JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. Indrajeet Kaur is your leader for this particular conference. It starts from first 1st to 15th. When? 1st to 15th, not July either. Not September too.

Students: (Laugh)

YB: October. She is so young, still forgets. It is first to fifteen, first fifteen days. I mean, two weeks right? It's not compulsory, those who want to go and have fun and see Cairo and all those, what are those triangle, pyramid something, something like that. You can ride a camel and all that stuff. I think that's included.

Students: (Laugh)

YB: And if I will go, then I will proceed from there to India, to work with Indian youth for a month, I have decided that and then, you will join me on the 20th right? October 20th to 1st of November and we will be going to golden temple and wash the floors, no hanky-panky. I did it for four and a half years. It should not hurt you. You do not know, sometime you do not know what those things can do. They are great things. So we will sleep whole day, snore and every night, we will wash the floors and that's it. We will dip in the tank and eat the lungarLangar , Lungar Free kitchen associated with Sikh worship service. , then in between, so that, we are American, we may not feel bored, because, we are like, frogs, you know, you jump out of the bag. We will visit the adjoining places, which are very beautiful. In other words, we will walk the path on which the great have walked and try to copy.

So, if you intend to go, please come, you are welcome. But just remember, it's a yatra. It's not a tourist trip. It is to cleanse yourself and it is to clean what is written on the forehead, it's not sightseeing and if you will not discipline yourself, you will be asked to so many dips, you will be cleaned. Don't try to mess with the grace. Last time we went, we had a wonderful time and may the long time, sun shine.

(Students singing "May the long time...")

YB: All love, surround you and the pure life, within you, guide your way on.

(Students stopped singing "May the long time")
