(Students Yell.)

YB: Okay, okay, just understand. Why I asked you to yell?

Students: (--------------------)

(YB and Students laughs)

YB: No. Yelling is our last, last act of communication.

Student: (-------------------------)

YB: When we reach a prime state of frustration, that's where we yell, you understand yelling. Yelling is humans, last act of frustration, and it is based on quarter insanity, where you do not know what to say. So, when you do not know what to say or you feel you are not reaching somebody you start yelling. Yelling also, in Psychology came at a, is a therapy, what they decided, that they made the room, with a absolute padding, they give you tissues, that's the only one thing, and they secure the room, that you cannot hang yourself, you cannot do anything and they put you in that room with barest minimum clothes, so you cannot tie it around your throat, you cannot kill yourself and they leave you there for night, it is called Primal therapy, person yells, screams, cries, does whatever, nobody hears him outside, but inside he knows he is hearing inside, and whatever he says, is exposed to vibrations, and they found out in Psychology, well that's also a way to let your inner things go.

Then somebody was very clever, he came to my class, once when I was teaching rebirthing and how to go from a Primal pain of the childhood from the pregnancy to life. They made up a rebirthing course costs about seven, eight, nine, ten thousand dollars and they start doing that, then somebody took little Kundalinin Yoga, little Zennism and this and that and they make it (?)est. Finally you might have understood there is a very costly religious thing going on scientology.

Scientology is nothing based on e-meter, they put you front to front and they put this e-meter in between you, e-meter is nothing but a, what you call that, we use it lie detector, the test, so they ask you a question, you answer, the e-meter said, you are lying. Then he asked you another question, so one man to one man basis they work, and finally you reach a state, that you stop lying, they think, they call it cleansing, by the time you are cleansed of that lying, you also cleansed of about seven thousand bucks. So, there are so many things in life going on, in one thing or the other.

Process is not what is what. Process is, what your mind does to you. Mind was given to you to serve and mind was given the strength to compute and communicate, that you do mentally. Mind has eighty-one portions and mind has three minds, negative, positive and neutral, that's how you freak out in your life. Hey! You think I am blind. I know you don't want to learn it, but I am not going to leave behind, when I die lot of money that you can goof around and taken care of you, better learn life, I know you are my granddaughter and you have right over me, but I am very kind to you, you know that, and you are very spoiled that I am very rich, somehow I take care of you anyway. So, why can't you just act right, and I will take care of you, any, anyway, huh, right, pay attention, you will learn this, it will be useful to you, okay, that's the agreement, nice

What happens is very simple. You have Ears, say, ears.

Students: Ears.

YB: Then you have a inner ear.

Students: (----------------------)

YB: You know that, have you heard that before, No. No, no, that is very important, you should know, you have a Ear, then you have a inner Ear. Inner Ears have three bones, inner Ear?

Students: Has three bones.

YB: There are two side bones, which are called signal bone and there is one hammer bone. So, whatever you hear here, it goes to the inner Ear and inner Ear, the hammer bone strikes on the two side bones, right, and that sends the electronic signal into the brain, and brain computes it and it is given to your understanding, and that understanding can go to three things, it go first to your, can go to three things, but it goes to first thing is called 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. , so that is the right of life, when you hear something, immediately the reaction is, 'what is in it, why he is saying me this thing, why I am hearing it, what it means, why he is saying it, what is under it,' every facet of negativity will come up, then normally, the same thing will go to the positive mindPositive Mind One of the three Functional Minds. It elaborates, magnifies, extends, and assists. It asks, "How can this help me? How can I use this? What is the positive side of this?" , positive mindPositive Mind One of the three Functional Minds. It elaborates, magnifies, extends, and assists. It asks, "How can this help me? How can I use this? What is the positive side of this?" is a section, and positive mindPositive Mind One of the three Functional Minds. It elaborates, magnifies, extends, and assists. It asks, "How can this help me? How can I use this? What is the positive side of this?" instead of telling you what is positive in it, pull down from your memory, which is the neighbor, all the previous negative records and 'so it happened you then, it happened you then, it happened you then, it can happen to you,' it reinforces 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. , whereas, you should be trained in your life, from 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. to positive mindPositive Mind One of the three Functional Minds. It elaborates, magnifies, extends, and assists. It asks, "How can this help me? How can I use this? What is the positive side of this?" , and to understand and hear in your own head, this is negative of it and this is positive of it.

Student: (--------------)

YB: Yeah.

Student: (----------------------)

YB: (Oh, call him, I will see him after I finish the class, I will tell him and, check where he will be available, because I have to speak to him.

Student: Okay.

YB: I need her.) Now positive mindPositive Mind One of the three Functional Minds. It elaborates, magnifies, extends, and assists. It asks, "How can this help me? How can I use this? What is the positive side of this?" and 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. are used by everybody that way, that's why our life is mess, because we don't hear right. Then the third position is, that you have to go to a 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. , again 'is that true what positive mindPositive Mind One of the three Functional Minds. It elaborates, magnifies, extends, and assists. It asks, "How can this help me? How can I use this? What is the positive side of this?" is saying,' the guy has said first, he is going to say, 'yah, yah, yah,' and you are set. When there is too much negativity in life, then projection become hopeless and that is the beginning of a permanent depression and once in a permanent depression, it's lie, it starts as applied depressions, slight depression, regular depression, real depression, then it become fear, it become phobia and then it become neurosis and then neurotic and psychotic and on and on, but it starts right there. Now, actually from 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. you should go to positive mindPositive Mind One of the three Functional Minds. It elaborates, magnifies, extends, and assists. It asks, "How can this help me? How can I use this? What is the positive side of this?" , from a positive mindPositive Mind One of the three Functional Minds. It elaborates, magnifies, extends, and assists. It asks, "How can this help me? How can I use this? What is the positive side of this?" you should go to shuniyaShuniyaa , Shuniya A state of the mind and consciousness where the ego is brought to zero or complete stillness. There a power exists. It is the fundamental power of a Kundalini Yoga teacher. When you become shuniaa then the One will carry you. You do not grasp or act. With folded hands you "are not." It is then that Nature acts for you. , pratyahar, Zero, neutral mindNeutral Mind The most refined and often the least developed of the three Functional Minds. It judges and assesses. It witnesses and gives you clarity. It holds the power of intuition and the ability to see your purpose and destiny. It is the gateway for awareness. , and then you idle there, you know car idles, then you put it in the park, it runs, neither it move forward nor it move?

Students: Backwards.

YB: Then you should idle there and if you care to idle there, then you will find neutrally, what is in your best interest, what is?

Students: In your best interest.

YB: And that should be the answer to your life. What is best for you can only come to you from your neutral mindNeutral Mind The most refined and often the least developed of the three Functional Minds. It judges and assesses. It witnesses and gives you clarity. It holds the power of intuition and the ability to see your purpose and destiny. It is the gateway for awareness. . In our Sikh way of life, we call it Sehaj Avasta, a neutral, normal, status of state. When you think of that, that you are in a neutral state, and you can totally compute, pros and?

Students: Cons.

YB: Once you compute, the pros and cons, you are in the neutral stage, you always will find out, what to do. Then again, from neutral mindNeutral Mind The most refined and often the least developed of the three Functional Minds. It judges and assesses. It witnesses and gives you clarity. It holds the power of intuition and the ability to see your purpose and destiny. It is the gateway for awareness. you reverse back to positive mindPositive Mind One of the three Functional Minds. It elaborates, magnifies, extends, and assists. It asks, "How can this help me? How can I use this? What is the positive side of this?" , and you achieve it, that is how success comes to us. But if you ever want, that you should not have 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. , it will be wrong, because, then you will be insane, nature has provided that procedure, similarly, when you speak. Okay. There are two ways of speaking. One is you speak with the power of your lips and tongue, power of?

Students: Lips and Tongue.

YB: Second procedure is, you only speak with the power of tongue, third is you speak through the sign language. Now, let us learn first process. I, I.

Students: I.

YB: I.

Students: I.

YB: Love

Students: Love

YB: You.

Students: You.

YB: Now, say it with lips. I

Students: I.

YB: You.

Students: You.

YB: It will have no taste. Speak it and listen to it again. Go ahead.

Students: I Love You.

YB: Understand. Now speak with tongue. I.

Students: I.

YB: I, No, watch, watch, watch, watch, listen, listen, don't hurry up. I Love You, there is so much taste in it, there is so much sex in it. You understand, it goes right into the head, words are the same. And third then you have not to say a word. So speak, I, I,

Students: I,

YB: Love,

Students: Love,

YB: You,

Students: You.

YB: That is with lips and tongue, right. Then second procedure is, only with tongue. I Love You.

Students: I Love you.

YB: There is so much juice in it. And third,

(YB Laughs)

You got to kids, learn it because, your first power is your presence, write it down. Your first language is your presence, your first,

Students: Language is your presence.

YB: Your second language is your body language.

Students: Your second language is your body language.

YB: Your third language is your spoken word.

Students: Your third language is your spoken word.

YB: Your fourth language is the clarity, clarity, clarity, clarity in your spoken words.

Students: Your fourth language is the clarity, clarity, clarity, clarity in your spoken words.

YB: And your fifth language is your commitment in your words.

Students: And your fifth language is your commitment in your words.

YB: Can you repeat it please.

Students: Your first language is your presence, your second language is your body language, your third language is your spoken language, your fourth language is the clarity, clarity, clarity, clarity in your spoken words, and your fifth language is your commitment in your words.

(Students laughs)

YB: Your commitment conveys in your words. Now, have you ever planned to speak that way. Hello! Have you ever planned to speak that way?

Students: No.

YB: Why not?

Student: (---------------)

YB: Why Not?

Student: No.

YB: Well I was here for the last twenty years, how many of you enter twenty.

Yeah, okay, you are all exempt, but how about, how are you over ten year old, so what were you doing from last ten years?

Students: (-------------------)

YB: You could learn this, you were all summer here, what are trying to lay on India, ah, these are the five speaking languages you can speak in, then there are thousands of different languages, but you must understand, there are these situations, either when you speak, you use the method called uttering or you utter and mostly you tutter, you don't make any sense, then you speak, speak, or you speak loudly or you are a loudspeaker or you are a speaker, it has no juice in it. Then third status you can have in your personality is you can be a speaker and communicator, so when you communicate, you make a statement, and when you make a statement, you always be called upon your statement to prove it, got it, understand.

Student: Yes Sir.

YB: Lastly, what you can speak is, you can create a intercourse. Intercourse is between two, people who speak and it is called "Dialogue." Dia?

Students: Logue.

YB: Where both participate equally and that creates understanding. So which one, which area you want to adapt? Come on.

Students: (-----------------)

YB: Dialogue. The intercourse word which is used for sex, was never meant for sex. 'Oh we had a great intercourse,' that means we talk with a great understanding, we had a great dialogue and we came to understanding, and we will call it, we had a great intercourse, but now you know everything is, if you call anybody gay, that means different than it used to be, so things change with circumstances. So learn to create dialogue. What steps you use in creating a dialogue. First do the homework to clear, your mind and know exactly what you are talking about, that you should know yourself and then you make a person understand, why you are talking and what you are talking, and thirdly, bring to the personality of a person the understanding, why it is best for that person and also, why it is best for you, you understand. Now repeat. Number one you must have homework, clear understanding, right, correct. The second.

Student: (----------------------------)

YB: You have to be clear with that person, why you are speaking, right, third, what is the best for that person in that and what is best for you. If you tell everybody, it is best for you, and don't tell what is best for you, you are hiding something, you won't be trusted. Always create a dialogue to create a trust, don't create impression, don't create to convince, don't create to get by, always communicate to trust, create a trust, that's the power of the spoken word and these are the principle things, you must remember in communication. First poke, second provoke, third confront and fourth elevate. If you leave a dialogue without elevating another person, you have missed the person forever, you have done injury instead of any healing. All right, so far I have given you few fundamentals of communication.

Now, it is personality to reality, reality to non-reality, that's why we talk. Sometime we want to speak to create a reality. Sometime we want to speak to hide our reality and create non-reality, you understand, and sometime you have nothing to say and sometime you say it all. So please, ask me the questions, so I can give you few examples, so that you can understand, any subject you can choose, any question you can ask. Hurry up.

Student: (---------------------------------)

YB: One hour speaking takes your energy of breakfast and a lunch, that much energy it cost, and if you speak too much, if you eat too much, you mess up your body, so, therefore when you normally speak understand what for. Did you get that paper on mind done, oh come on, bring it typed, so we can give to these people, hurry up, cover me, oh I have to read, I have to have in bold letters, that note.

Student: (--------------------------------)

YB: No, no, just bring that paper to me, have you discussed with Siri (?), mind I gave you last night.

Student: (----------------------)

YB: Yeah, that paper, hurry up.

Student: Spoiled.

YB: Hurry up. Okay. When you speak, speak with a purpose, go ahead. Speak with a,

Students: Purpose.

YB: And speak with a clear projection.

Students: Speak with a clear projection.

YB: Speak with a,

Students: Clear projection.

YB: And speak when you have to, speak must, is that understood, all right where are the question, why is be...

Student: (----------------------------------)

YB: Well, mostly you speak to express yourself and not feel lonely.

Student: Yes Sir.

YB: Majority of the time you speak, not to feel lonely. And some people got to speak with the trees, some people speak with birds, some people will speak with animals. I have a friend he can speak to any bird and any animal and he once took me in New York, up north, in the state and he went into this jungle, you know it was a kind of a forest type of thing and he said, I don't know what he did, Fu, fuf, fu, something like that, and two, three, four birds flew him up on the head, and then he told one bird, ozo,zoo, zo, and he came on my shoulder.

(Student laugh)

And I said, I said, "How you can do it?" And he said, "I speak their language, they are my friends," I thought they were his pet birds, then I told him, I said, "Well, do you see that Eagle? They are kind of..."

He said, "No, it is not Eagle, it is, it is a prey bird, but it, he named something."

And I said, "Can you call that one?"

So, he did a kind of a cry, and in few minutes that bird flew up and whewwww, and he laid the hand and his toe, and the most amazing part was, he has no hand cover, of leather or anything and the bird did not put his claws, those big nails on his hand, he was not injured, amazed me, okay, next question. Oh, thanks a lot. Well I have prepared this for you, it is our mind, eighty-one facets, how to conquer for peace, within ourself and our planet, it's a little thing by me, done by her mother, I will share that with you in a minute, but let us start the questions which you want to know, go ahead, yes.

Student: (---------------------)

YB: Well the first thing is, if you want to be very heavy and not obnoxious, use silence. Silence is a weapon which will never miss the goal. In the middle of conversation, just go silent, and the person say, "What?" Say, "I have nothing more to say," that is a killer, that can bring lot of anger, that will bring lot of violence sometime, it's a weapon which will never miss, but if you want to, not be mean, just say, very politely, "May I say something. I am not interested in this."

Create a mystery and get to silence and you got it all, you don't have to be mean, abusive, you have to be mean and abusive only where your interest lies to, shipping somebody and creating somebody, you have to do it and person is not taking the frequency and you have to do it, and it's all pressure tactics, which normally, it is very Divine in humanity, but your interest have to be totally two hundred percent, and that is what parents do, they yell and scream and do whole thing to tell their children what is right and wrong, because, they have never learnt dialogue, they feel authoritative, they are the final authority, if the subject and the object and that's why they take the subject and they tell the object, what to do, they can't create a dialogue, why? They don't have time.

No parents have ever found time for their children. And in our society today, it's impossible. There was a time when parents, mother was always at home, father was always at work, now both are at work, and now, today mothers are modern mothers. They have no time for children, but they have all the time for shopping, they have time for many other things, they have no time for children, and this is a modern society you can't help it. Next. Yeah!

Student: (----------------------------------------------------------------------------)

YB: Through a discussion, there goes a debate, and it's the most painful effort parents must undertake, listen to both, let them debate it and you have to referee it. A question of complaint must be decided by both, and you can only umpire it, you can referee it, and they will all end up in conversation of understanding, but they don't ever enforce the decision, they will not come next time. Because, it is not they are coming to parents for judgment, they will go to the court for judgment, they will go, everything, every person, grownup will like to be having a judgment on a situation. So parents have to do that. At that time you can order around, you can't tell one, 'shut up,' the other, 'get out,' here normally parents say timeout, put in a room, that's totally ridiculous, insulting, that's not the way to do it. You can't tell your own born, you have no time to listen and no time to do justice, moment as parents you do that, you have committed the biggest felony on the planet Earth. Next.

Student: (-----------------------------------------------------------------------)

YB: Your biggest power is 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. , if you have clear mind, you are intuitive, moment you are intuitive you know the truth, you can speak it, there is nothing wrong in it, it is not you are vouching or your ego is vouching, it is what true is, if you know tomorrow what is happening and if you love somebody, just say it, let them not believe it, who cares, they won't believe you once, they don't do it twice, they going to ten times, well eleventh time they will believe you. They believe you by experience, they trust you by, by hard, hard luck, nobody trust anybody, nobody believes anybody, people don't trust any other person, it's the wisdom, which people want to trust, not the person. That's another problem in life, nobody wants to trust you ever, nobody loves you ever, nobody knows you ever, it's the amount of wisdom you can shell out.

Deh khona, eh badi simple, it's one of the simplest thing. Gul, gul, vul, hul, chal, these are four things. Gul means communication, talk. Vul means, the procedure, the technique. Hul means through which you can solve somebody's problem and Chal is you create a drama to cheat somebody, three are okay, fourth if you use, nobody will trust you ever, simple. Yeah Ong Kar what is it?

Ong Kar: (-------------------------------)

YB: Opposite polarities. Sides are very difficult to judge, polarity is always there, they have different interest, they are on different polarities, different frequencies.

Student: (---------------------------------------)

YB: Very simple, make temporary truce.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: Become permanent.

Student: Yeah!

YB: Huh!

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: Pardon.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: No, no, no, when you cannot deal with the thing right on create a temporary truce. That means the other person know, that you are not sure, you know, you are not sure, and that's very honest. Yeah go ahead, ask the question. You are not clear on your question is it, Hah?

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: Your father is totally negative to me and I am very positive to him, I don't care.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: Yeah, but you understand, my solution to everything is, I have to be super positive, doesn't matter what. The question is when I come to their level, then there is a fight, I will never come to their level, your father was talking so negative, the whole community end up in arms, all I did is call him and put him on forty days silence, I told him forty days you will speak nothing, but positive, he agreed, matter ended, and he did it too, those forty days he never spoke negative once, I checked through everybody, no fight, he cannot help but being negative, that is his halo, he is miserable himself, he is not that he is happy about it.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: Your mother.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: Your mother knows it that there are children involved and she is now first mother, and woman next, therefore she will come through doesn't matter what, it's a sad story, but it has a wonderful result. I am yet to see a woman who can be that positive, with that negativity and still smile, she is one example in whole 3HO we shall be proud of, you don't like it, that I know, I don't like it either.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: No, he is not bad, he is absolutely not bad, he is negative, negative is not always bad, why you call him bad, bad is too much, negative, he is not bad, he is Mister Negative, he starts with everything negative, and then you discuss positive with him for three hours, in the end he will find out negative in your positive, very good, why not, that's his specialty. In Army strategy, that man will be paid highest.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: Hah!

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: No, no, no, in Army we applies, employ some people at a very high salary. Their job is, we give anything to them, they totally get to the negative of it. It's not a wrong idea, he has a very natural intuition, but sometime his negative intuition is based on his fears and other stuffs and that messes up the things, otherwise he is a nice guy, he is not wrong, he is negative, I like him, that's why I never bother. You have to have a very special technique to like such a man. He is very kind hearted, he is very generous and he has all the great qualities, he is Mister Negative, and he should not bug anybody, but people don't like it, I don't know why, why people don't like it?

Student: (-----------------)

YB: Hah!

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: But why don't you tell him, 'Papa stop it.'

Student: (--------------------)

YB: No, no, say it with love and affection, not the way you say it to him, I know.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: Future possibilities are, past, future, present, no, no, no, he has the right to tell the past, he has the privilege to tell the positive now, and he has to bring hope for tomorrow, and that's the way to communicate. You always bring the facts to somebody attention, you always deal with the now and you must elevate the person for tomorrow. Next, yeah.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: Ho, ho, what a question, have you heard the question, how you want to help somebody who doesn't want to help himself? Tell me, there is not a one person living, who wants to help himself, none, including me, nobody wants to help themself. How many of you, I ask you a question. How many of you get up in the morning, stand before a mirror and appreciate yourself. Get out of the Sun, there is direct angle Sun, it's going to burn your skin, this is New Mexico Sun, come this way please.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

(Students laugh)

YB: Ram, oh he does everything to survive.

Student: (--------------)

YB: Oh, definitely without that he can't make a day.

(Students laugh)

Remember, one day he was fanatic Sikh, he learned everything, now he practices it, but he is mad with us, it's okay, he will come home sooner or later, he is not going anywhere, we watch every summer.

(Student laugh)

The day was good with you.

Student: Oh yes sir, fine.

YB: Perfect, okay go ahead. Nobody wants to help him and herself, tell me why?

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: Uh!

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: Because, they think, they are perfect themself already, that's true, correct answer. Because in our life, helping means something is crippled, something is wrong, something is not right. Actually helping yourself means your homework, and homework about your living, your life, your being. You need yourself and you need to help it, you need to maintain it, you need some hour to think about yourself, be yourself, workout your day, workout your life, workout your plan, workout your belief, you need all that, and if you don't do that, you shall be confused, is that understood?

Students: Yes Sir.

YB: That's why we are always in tension, that's why we are all in pain, that's why we are in trouble, we don't have time for ourself, we have time for everything.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: Simple thing, 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.

Students: Yes Sir.

YB: You must spend two and a half hour everyday on yourself, on your exercise, on your meditationMeditation Dhyan. It is a process of deep concentration or merger into an object or a state of consciousness.

If a person doesn't come out, he is gone, everybody knew it, it was a rule, nobody can sit higher than two and a half foot, if he does, he must be beheaded. Every girl, who is sixteen and above, must be presented to the local chief, for a night to sleep with, that's why in India, the custom, they started, marrying everybody six, seven year old, no, no that's true.

So these are few facts of life I wanted to tell you, and he brought those people into life who never had a dream, even to rise above the ground. Next. You don't ask lot of questions now, why, you don't want the answer.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: If the relationship goes wrong in the very beginning, you can start beginning anytime you want, there is no beginning, no end, if you want it, question is you want or you don't. All beginnings are with you, and all ends are with you and all middle is with you, there is no beginning without you, there is no middle without you, and there is no end without you, there is nothing more important than you, please value yourself, if you do not value yourself, nobody shall value you. If you sell cheap, you will end up as a creep, there is no way out, it is that cut and dry. Next. Yeah.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: How you gets you want, it's the simplest thing. If you are willing to put your hundred percent into it, and you are willing to fail all the sacrifices for it, you will get it, it's matter of time, I always get what I want, always do. That's why always people leave me, I never leave them, because I want one thing, the best of everybody. They got so scared, he want my best, what about him, I don't care. I am the best, why should I care, see I get everything what I want, on time, right folks, next. Hey you littles, you have to face life, talk to me, if you keep this damn question to yourself, you are not going to find the answers, and you are going to suffer. At least you can hear my version, you don't have to believe it.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: Biological need, time clicking, destiny, passions, need of somebody to sleep with better than a pillow, sale sex, safe sex, what else, security.

Student: Why you need money, when security only is money.

YB: No, familiar (?), things to brag about, thing to yell at, think to give bad time, get angry with somebody free of cost.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: Because he has to cook you every night, it's better you feed him during the day. In olden days that was the time, but now it's modern time, both go to a restaurant with their different friends, either they get (?) from each other or they get, that what they call Dutch treat.

Student: Dutch treat.

YB: World is changing. Huh.

Student: (----------------------------------------------------------------------------)

YB: Kids are the most innocent Angels in life and they are real joy, time is always there, if you want it. Problem what happened with parents is, they got the kids, everything was right to begin with, then they now got them, and they think kids are their furniture, they are like slaves, he has kids, (?) two kids, ask him how much trouble he is in, why, ask him why?

Student: (----------------------------------------)

Student: I am not in any trouble, I don't know why he pointed me out, I have been blessed, I have got wonderful kids.

(Students laugh)

Student: (----------------------------------------)

Student: Huh.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

Student: No, I will have it, I got a perfect teacher who raised us.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

Student: No, I got a perfect teacher who raised them (?) lucky one.

(laughs hilariously)

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: His children are so independent. Once that little thing says, Papa, what she said to you?

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: Not good, tell them.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: When she figure it out, I am your boss.

Student: Oh, yeah, she said, she said to me, (?) she said, "Papa."

I said, "What dear?"

She said, "Is the 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. your boss?'

(Students laugh)

And I do, I said, Yes, dear (?) is." We never had the same relationship since, she doesn't think I am the final words, so whatever I go (?) into negotiation, so she has no fear of me, what a wonderful way for a kid to be raised, without fear of the parents.

YB: He says, 'time out,' she says, 'your time out.'

(YB and Students laughs)

She is so fast, you can't believe that little kid. She comes to me and (?) tells me, "Well she is very hyper, she is not behaving all right." She said, "No. Let 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. be the judge, I behave all right, no problem."

(Students laughs)

And she said, "You didn't behave with me."

She said, "That's outside here. We will discuss it later."

This, this, this, she is this much. What we taught those children as a experiment, that they have to be free, they have to be themself, in that house, lives , auntyji called 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. , she is six foot two, and she is a living logic, and once a while I visit too, I am the applet authority, so if there are any complaints, they come duly and justice has to be done. So both parents are aware of the fact, so there was never a trouble. It's a very beautifully lived house, but they also know, they can't freak out from school, they got to do their work right, they have to behave well, then they have to, rest is the time they are...

(?) If they want to freak out they have the privilege. If you allow your children not to mix their right and privileges, then you are in good shape. Children's have certain rights, they should be theirs, and they have some privileges, those should be decided on the merits only, that's all. But we start doing, we start punishing children and they become hardcore, and then one thing leads to the other, (?)...

Side B

A proper attention, and then parents justify, '(?) look at me, and look at me and your mother are miserable,' while you are miserable, you have labor pains too. The worst experience which I have in America is, when the parents are not willing to sacrifice for their poor, innocent children. They want what they need. I want A grades, the guy doesn't know what to do about it, and they damn willing to help, they can't sit down and do their homework, they can't help them all they want is grades, the damn paper makes them happy and unhappy. Where they were the whole year, doing parties, that's the most tragic part of it, it's a very damn continuous process, and the tragedy of it is, when you threat your child, you damage the personality. You are the basic God given damn security, and you start threatening your child, where the child has to go, which way, there is no place, yeah.

Student: (-----------------------)

YB: Uh.

Student: (--------------------------------------------------------------------)

YB: No, it's very simple, it is explained, I tell you, it's so simple, lot of people tell me what to do. You know how many people, regularly, on daily basis, tell me to do, my eleven secretaries, my regional teachers, name a thing, everybody has right to tell me what to do, normally. What I do is, put the facts before them and ask their opinion, they back off. Makeup a fake example and I will give you the example how to communicate.

Student: (--------------------------------)

YB: Yeah, I tell everybody to get married, when I find something good, they tell me not to, I don't care.

Student: (--------------------------------------------------------------------)

YB: Get on with what?

Student: (--------------------------------------------------------------------)

YB: All they have to just tell me, 'I don't want it,' I also find some jewelry piece, I will give it to people, all they have to tell me, 'I don't want to wear it,' fine, between that and that there is no difference. I don't expect hundred percent obedience, I don't care a damn, I am just interested in the kids, if there is an opportunity I will take care of it. Siri SimranSimran A deep meditative process in which the naam of the Infinite is remembered and dwelled in without conscious effort. 's junior never wanted to get married, she is my ward legally and my estate could have taken care of her, but she was not in a position to take care of by that estate, and I honestly got to bum, do not trust anybody, I wanted to create that relationship and, look at that, after hospital I moved in her house, what more you expect from me, I live in that house, just to, anytime she asks a question, I am there, what more I can do.

I took a responsibility, whether I was fool or wise I don't care, at that time there was a need of security for that girl, and I raised her, I changed her diapers, I understand her, right, I could not betray her, she is a part of my will, she is a part of my estate, and she will never need anybody, but still I know, this world is normal and she still wants to live a normal life, and she was too innocent and I asked for my sake, that she should marry, in case I die, I will have a peace, and she said, "Okay I will sacrifice." She was not un-open to me oh, she was absolutely open.

She said, "I will sacrifice."

I said, "Agreed."

Now she is happy. Now I don't find her any Sunday afternoon, now they once, now the telephone is never free, I know it,

(Laughs)

When I commit to something my dear, I go with it, the best part is me in it. Normally I don't expect that without understanding, anybody should obey anybody, and while asking certain things, I give pros and con and education, that's the way I use this as a tool. I know some people, I said, "Well this is the best boy, grab it."

She said, "No. I don't want to marry."

"What do you want to do?"

"I want to graduate, I want to do this, all that ivory palace."

Fine, fine.

Month later, "Well I don't know, I have found this boy and I am in love."

I said, "Okay, let us sit on alphabetic table, find it out, pros and cons." I just tell the pros and cons, let her decide it, I just don't want, later on she should say, "You didn't advise me right," it's her affair not mine, she is going to get into the gutter, is her life, not mine, but I don't to have the responsibility, that I didn't goof, I did goof, put myself on the line, said it what I have to say, one thing you must understand, God has done us one favor, there is a no meter on us to measure what we are doing, but one thing He did very cleverly, every action has a reaction, equal and opposite, you will get it, not today, little later.

You can hide a shit under every cover you want, one day it will breakup and stink, it can never be permanent. As far as I am concerned, I have never advised somebody, definite, except in certain cases, where people are my personal ward of the state. In that situation, I am a legal authority and I feel with all my honesty, and if the situation is beyond my control, and my situation, I do need a help, I am very honest and we normally have a dialogue, but I always win, that is unfortunate part of it, but it is true, we go through the discussion, maximum, and then in certain cases, things are laid down very flat, 'I don't agree with you,' I say, 'okay, I will vouch this,' and then I have to go through it.

I don't think Siri SimranSimran A deep meditative process in which the naam of the Infinite is remembered and dwelled in without conscious effort. is married, I think I am married, with both of them, and she got me by the horns, if I would have known, that I would not have been that sick, I would have never, ever told her to get married, I would have send her to college myself, I couldn't make her a doctor, but I made her (?) me, she is married to a doctor, at least I achieve half of it, I never had latest dream in my life, that I will marry her anytime, I wanted her to be such a perfect human being, and so good, and create an example, I raised her, she is part of me and so many others too, I stick around with everybody, here is one example, she is the best bully fighter with me, she fights everyday, so what should I do? She is born in my hands, she has different syllabus and timetable, I have different syllabus and timetable, don't we fight, don't we, (?) we are perfect bull fighters, I allow her to fight, she cries, sometime I yell, but you know, so long we have a communication we are okay, she never tells me anything, I find it out, then I get her to attention, sometime she denies sometime she tells me, we discuss, I play my maturity role, she play her baby role, it goes on.

So long there is a communication, it's okay. The deadly thing is when communication stops, that's deadly, there is no good and bad, thinking make it so, but when your ego stops the communication, then from that onward God be with you, that's how it is, that's the way it's always going to be, nobody can change it. If you don't have tools of your life with you, and one of the most powerful tool is communication, you will always end up as a fool, and whenever your romance, your projection, is more, is the more, has more priority in it, than the reality, you will always fall in ditch, and if you desire, desire, desire, and you don't become deserving, you will always have a mess on hand. Desiring is not wrong, but deserving is must, that's as simple as it is. You know I am dealing with that girl right now, she is daughter of my friend, she is what, thirty-four, thirty-five, she has a daughter about ten or twelve, right.

Student: (--------)

YB: Right, and thank God she is alive, I have to take care of her. I took care of her three days and mind you, they are multi, multi millionaire, and this girl is worth fifty, sixty million dollar herself, can't take care of themself. They have forty bedroom house, they have swimming pool, they have hundred sixty servants, bah, bah, bah, what that matters, nothing. She gets up, her hands shakes to catch a cup of glass, the day she came, I have to arrange a Helicopter in case, her eyes were so bulgy, she could have bulged out all her eyeballs, I want to put her in a hospital in Albuquerque a case of emergency. You talk of money, their father makes two hundred million dollar a day and he still does it, he is the biggest Tycoon, in the south-east Asia, big deal. Yesterday night, on telephone he was crying, in gratitude "How is she?"

I said, "Fine, she is perfect."

"Is she, is she."

I said, "Yeah, there is nothing wrong."

"And what she is doing this for."

I said, "Drama. She is a very good actress. She wanted your attention, she is getting it. Good-luck."

Right now, before lunch, she was yelling and screaming at me, I started it, I provoked her. I said, "I know you have married me," right, and she just opened her mouth, I nailed her so badly, she will never forget it. Finally she compromised.

She said, "Okay, okay, I am co-operating, I am co-operating."

I said, "Okay, so long you co-operate, it's fine, after that you will be all right, fine, then you can go, do, whatever you want to do, come back again, doesn't matter."

Sometime my dear child, life become so complicated by us that we cannot even communicate with ourself that is the tragic part of life. There are three things, you must remember folks. One is a stage, you should not be allowed to come in, but it does come in, when you cannot talk to yourself. Second stage is, you cannot listen to your own self. Third stage is, you argue, debate and reconfirm, your emotional belief, than your reality. Those three stages are the most dangerous stages, we ever have to live in, anything else.

Student: (--------------------------------------------------------------------)

YB: Hah...

Student: (--------------------------------------------------------------------)

YB: When somebody is going to hurt, just draw their attention, divert the attention, say nothing, other than diversion, you must say something, which his diversion must change, attention must change. Moment we change the attention of a person, he will know, they are doing wrong, they will change it, don't start yelling and screaming, that's the way we change the attention, that's the wrong way to do it. It's pretty simple, if you do it right. Anything else, you have become serious, we wanted to have fun. I came here to tell you, how to talk, not what to talk, you end up, asking me question, what to talk, what to do, ask me question, how to talk, what time we have.

Student: Quarter to five.

Student: (-----------)

YB: Five O' five, you have five minutes, utilize them as best as you can.

Student: (----------------------------------------)

YB: Nobody wants to listen to you to begin with.

(Students laugh)

You try to understand, that's a human faculty, you don't want to listen because you listen, then you have to work it out, who wants the work, draw their attention, draw their interest and draw their ego, three things. Attention, interest and ego, then everybody is willing to listen, and you miss all these three, forget it. That's why people when they read their BaniBani Literally "Word", Refers to the Word of God contained in the Sikh Sacred Writings; Banis refers to Sikh daily prayers. , they start, fu, fu, huh, huhhhhh, and they go. That's why, have you seen in GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. .

(Students laugh)

Have you gone to ever morning 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. .

(Students laugh)

Because nobody is interested in their self purification.

Hari Jeevan, read these to them. Sit down, here I am going to bathroom, so he can record it right.

Student: Okay

YB: I have the permission to use the bathroom?

Student: Yes Sir.

YB: Listen to this...

Student: Sometimes there are trouble, tragedy, treachery, ups and downs, can you all hear me, that won't help. Sometimes there are troubles, tragedy, treachery, ups and downs, if you don't want the pain, if you don't want it to happen to you, then one simple thing, the simplest thing, just conquer your own mind.

"Sochai soch naa hov-a-ee jay sochee lakhLakh 100,000. vaar."

Means, thinking, think so many times, you think, and it means nothing, because you can't conquer your mind that way. In the nineteen nineties the path of Devotion is difficult. When you do it, you will do it halfway. When you want to do your own thing, modern living is called profit living. It has reached to such a point of insanity and insensitivity, that nobody understands the will of God, because you want it so high, your fashion, dialogue, talking, projection has very little Divinity. Anyone who applies their mind, not to the real shall never know the reality, and the peaceful enjoyment of spirituality.

pratyahar, the control of the mind, through with the prowl of the senses. The joy in your life, which you really want to enjoy, is within you, there is nothing more precise, than you within you, not to find you within you is a curse, because you have not found you within you. The day you find you within you, your mind will be yours. Continue. The alternate path is conquering the mind, through deep meditationMeditation Dhyan.

YB: All right, it's beautiful, I learned it when I was almost nine year old. Hey, what is in this few papers. It is by 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. Bahan, you know what I mean. This will tell you in and out of your mind, how it works, what it does, how to deal with it, how to control it, how to use it and that is the only power you got. Your main power is your own mind. If your mind is subject under anything, and if the object of your life is that not to use creativity through your mind, you will be in trouble. So why should not we get it printed right, and give you like a handbook. Will that do.

Student: You must understand, though today I had my first class is in 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.

YB: Sympathize with him and he has volunteered himself, give him a hand for that.

Students: The main point is that, I am alive.

(YB and Students laugh)

Well I am open to any of your questions, I enjoy this talk and I think it's a big thing, really that, you have such a camp, where you can discuss all these things, and from what I heard, I don't see that there is much difference, between the problems kids have in our country and you have here. Problem is with parents for not understanding, they don't want to understand that you have grownup, they still want you to be, you know, like small toys, you pick it up, you play with it and you put it aside. In my understanding children is the only purpose, for which the family should be created. This is the only one, and I agree that it is a big, responsibility and you must understand the (?), someday you will become parents too. I think, it's a great job you are doing here and some of you are very young, it's a good thing to come here and as I understand you come regularly.

We will also have various camps, but these are, well, something like you have as boy Scout camps, and this is mainly for sports activities and other things, recreation, but we have nothing of the kind, where you could listen to wise people, who have life experience, good life experience, and who can teach you some simple truths, and as a Psychologist I can tell you, that if your man is to carry away with you from here, some ten percent, of what you have heard, it would be something great you know, because, you cannot have it all, you cannot memorize it, but if the time comes, then you remember it, and from your subconscious, certain very simple truths, that you will now don't understand even, and don't memorize, will spring up to your conscious and you will say that, I remember there was a day, when I heard something like this and it's a very precious information, please ask questions.

YB: Now, please feel free, ask him those question, you didn't ask me. I know you have them.

Student: (-----------------------------------------)

Russian Student: I don't, I don't see that, there is big difference, if you take middle class or if you take people who are living in the cities. There is a big difference all over the country because the country is multinational. There are one hundred twenty nationalities or ethnic groups, and if you go to the central Asia, it's the same as if you go to Iran or to Iraq or to Turkey, so, but basically, I think allover the world, the problem are the same.

The difference is that, there are more, modern society, societies and more traditional societies, that's in traditional societies a family is, has the main authority, it's actually where individuals live for the family and family lives for the individual, but it's like, in an Army, there are very loving platoons in the Army, you know, there is a lot of friendship, but still it's platoon and it's an Army, and as I see the development of the Historical process, we are going towards more and more individual (?), nobody wants to take (?) and the only authority, that people accept all over the world, it's something which, bow, usually people, people call it God. And if you have that, you have to face this authority, and you cannot shake this responsibility, if you take upon you the right to make your own decision, sooner, or later, you will have to answer the main question, what you have did with yourself, and with a life that I have given to you, even if you don't recognize any other authority.

Soon or later, you will come to those spiritual questions, and speaking about the difference, the difference maybe is that for several decades, in schools and everywhere the youth was taught, that everything can be explained by material forces, that is because, we have composed of Atoms and Molecules and Minerals and what not, and from the Biological point of view, you are nothing else but a chemical formula, but there is something more to it, and this something unfortunately was not well analyzed, and well taken into consideration.

So the main difference is that there was a lot trouble, because people in the economic situation we have now, very often don't want to speak and to listen, to problem is about spirituality and (?) they say, 'first of all we need bread,' and I am trying to explain to them that, there are countries where they have a lot of bread, and there are rich and unfortunate people, it's very hard to understand, they say, 'how come you have a car, you have a house, you have everything, you can travel, how can you be unhappy,' they cannot believe it, but I saw many unhappy people here in the United States and in Europe too, who have everything material, but they don't have something, which you have got here, and I don't think that in some, there are many classes in America, many students and many teenagers, who are as unhappy, as our teenagers are.

I think that there is about, that this is probably the main difference as to the education, I think that, both countries have to change their educational systems. The difference, is also between our countries is that you have private and public education, that you can go and pay big money and get better education, we don't have anything of this type, but it doesn't feel that we don't have, flaws differences and differentiation, you know there is a very good saying that, all animals are equal but some of them are more equal, it's from famous animal forum and this being applied to, to the countries which are, very proud of their equal rights, some of the people are more equal and some of them are sending their children abroad to the best colleges and universities, I mean some people in our country, but I would also to say that, as I see it, we are all converging, we are all transforming, all of us, all the human race, is transforming in to one big country.

I don't hope that I'll live up to moment, when there will be no (?) no (?), but I think you maybe you will see it and you have to be ready for one simple fact, that human beings are everywhere, are the same, have the same basic foundations, which is spirituality, moral and ethic. I envy you. Any other questions.

Why are you so, why are you so shy, you know I have, I taught several classes here, and one I was, once I was, so attacked by, attacked I mean on the positive sense, they bombarded me with questions of all types, I must..

YB: They know too much doctor.

Russian Student: I have, yeah, this is what I wanted to say that, I arrive at a conclusion or either you know everything already.

YB: Yeah, they are, they are finding one difficulty, answer my question.

(Russian student laughs)

They know everything, but they are having a difficulty, quite how to implement it. They are not normal kid, they have been raised with lot of wisdom, love and affection, but they do not know how, how to walk about, that's the main, isn't that a question, yes or no.

Students: Yes Sir.

Russian Student: Well I think, the answer you know too, to practice.

(YB laughs)

To learn from your experience. Any knowledge taken from anywhere, from books or from, living world, is just one more piece of information, you have to go and to apply and find out for yourself, you have a different personality profile, what is good for some, someone, may not be good for you or not good to the extent, to the degree that is good for the other person, just go and apply, leave it, one more simple truth, which you know to. May I ask you one question?

YB: Yeah, now it is their turn.

Russian Student: Do any of you have, eastern European origin, maybe some grandparents, from Russia or from Europe, raise your hands please.

YB: Yeah, there are lot.
