(Students laugh)

Cookies will be served after class for Gur Mer Singh's birthday that sounds right, so you won't go hungry. Oh, Wow, uh, beautiful. Today we are going to talk to you about something, the most important in the entire science of Yoga. There have been lot of stories about it, lot of mysteries, but on physical level, it is truly nothing, but the pituitary gland. If we cut all that, big deal, I have to come to that note in a while.

(Students laugh)

Where the root of the nose meet the skull bone, there it lies man's gate to God. Now describe that. They say the pituitary gland is the master gland, it controls the entire glandular system. Glands are the guardian of the health. You won't get a better research on the glands, except a book in the library of the Rosicrucian, it's a Christian group, which believes in mystery and mystical research, they have a book published, 'glands are the guardian of health,' it is Rosicrucian publication. I don't think, medically anything is well explained than what they have explained. Pituitary commands all the glands.

Glandular secretion is important for body to exist, its sensitivity, nervous system, its blood stream and its organs. There are many meditationsMeditation 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. , in which your pituitary is affected or they are meant to affect the pituitary. Pituitary is the subject of the pineal, but, pituitary controls the pineal, effectively, and pineal controls the neuron patterns, elementary patterns. In thousand year from now, the science will not be what it is today. So long you know up to nineteen ninety-one AD, will be nothing, but bunch of lies, physically, mentally, scientifically, medically, psychologically, logically and rationally.

What we ever know are as human beings, there is only point zero nine percent truth in it, such as, elementary neuron patterns and projective neuron patterns form a combination on a certain frequency, in which Theta consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. affect the Gamma consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. , you don't a damn what I have said, you now what I am saying, therefore you don't know a thing. You can make a missile go on a orbit and you can land on the Moon, but you don't know this, let me tell you another thing, just for you to know, simple English.

Three per cycle, and three and a half cycle proportion of the pineal, radiation, effectively controls the pituitary and with that parasympathetic psyche controls and tune into the universal psyche, in which the Neuron patterns can understand and subject ones to the experience of ecstasy, figure it out. The teaching and the science and the communication, we will like that, will be practicing totally different things, we will be knowing different things, we will not be like this, emotional, nonsense, (?) behavioral, self depressed human beings. Logic, reason, argument will be passé, base of communication will be sensitivity of intuitive nature, people will read, the teachers are just as open books.

Elementary projections and active projections will be totally diagnosed by everyone, there will be different world order, human caliber will be totally different. The time I am relating to man knew all about it human order was different, it is in the book of Mahabharata, they used to travel by individual Vibaan, individual Aeroplanes, these Aeroplanes were energized, Vibaan, means Aeroplanes it's a very clear word of Sanskrit, by Mercury vapors, a certain amount of Mercury metal was put in and the machine will make in to a vapor form, which will create energy enough that these machines can take humans wherever they are supposed to go and it will continue working, on that strength, and in the books, but we can't reproduce that mechanism. So civilization comes and civilization goes and now in the, we are in the, what they call as the fifth civilization, but we are talking here about pituitary, the third eye is Agia Chakar or the ChakraChakra , Chaakra The word connotes a wheel in action. It usually refers to the seven primary energy centers in the aura that align along the spine from its base to the top of the skull. Each chakra is a center of consciousness with a set of values, concerns, and powers of action associated with it. of the command of human fulfillment, there is also one line in the scripture,

"O don't tell me, more than one, I seek the grace with the one who knows the secret of the Agia Chakar." One line, or one line like this, "Whosoever knows the Ajana and its projections, controls the entire creative universe of Almighty God." I am just telling you few literary meanings or the saying, 'what is in the Heaven is within, provided you know the third eye,' some people say third eye is the super sense or the commonsense, through which one is sensitive enough to know everything about oneself and about others. Question is how to achieve this?

The easiest thing which one can do, is when you look at the tip of the nose, now try yourself without I telling how to do it. Try to concentrate on the tip of the nose and look down and look closer with the eyes, you will be surprised to find that this area will become like a lead, you will feel hurt here, and you will feel hurt in about exactly minute and a half, if you look at the watch, try please, step one: Look at the tip of the nose deeply and put the eyes closely towards the nose and deep concentrate, you won't feel anything other than, between the third eye pointThird Eye Point The sixth chakra or center of consciousness. It is located at a point on the forehead between the eyebrows. Associated with the functioning of the pituitary gland, it is the command center and integrates the parts of the personality. It gives you insight, intuition, and the understanding of meanings and impacts beyond the surface of things. For this reason it is the focal point in many meditations. , a lot of pressure, that pressure is not on the skull or the bone or the muscles, that's the pressure, whenever you concentrate with the optical nerve tied on the tip of the nose, pituitary will be commanded by you. Now don't try to be religious, try to be scientist, try to evaluate it.

If you do this exercise for eleven minutes a day, just eleven minutes a day, between 4:00 AM and 8:00 AM according to the local time of longitude and latitude, within the early four hours, any time between, between that time for eleven minutes, everyday, you shall control your entire glandular system for those twenty-four hours. I did not believe it myself, till I had a girl, who came to me and told me she is, suffering with a disease and the Doctors have given her six months and the disease is terminal, I asked her, what is her medical treatment?

She said, "They told me to go home and pray."

She did the prayer. She did it very intensely, very honestly, with extreme discipline, surprisingly, after third month, Doctor gave her a good news, that her disease is reversing itself. Even today she is alive and well and the mother of three children, even today, but she has not missed one day. Locking at the pituitary takes minute and a half.

Now, touch your thumb and first finger, when you meditate on the pituitary, after three minutes change to the second finger, after three minutes to the Sun finger, after three minutes to pinky, you will find energy circulation with each such MudraMudra Mudra means "seal." It usually refers to hand positions used in meditation and exercise practices. These hand positions are used to seal the body's energy flow in a particular pattern. More generally it can refer to other locks, bandhas (see Mul Bandh), and meditation practices that seal the flow of energy by concentration. , different, when you have locked on the pituitary, how insensitive you maybe, you will feel the different energy, try that way now. By asking the touch of ego and the Jupiter and meditating in this way, you gain the, through the inner strength, the knowledge of the universe. By touching the ego and the Saturn finger and by meditating this way you gain the knowledge of the elements of hundred eight elements. By locking the ego and the Sun finger, you gain the knowledge of the PranaPraana , Prana The universal life force that gives motion. It is the breath in air. It is the subtle breath of the purusha as it vibrates with a psychophysical energy or presence. Praana regulates the modes and moods of the mind. , health, happiness and prosperity. By locking with the Pinky or the Mercury finger, you develop the inner strength to communicate anywhere with anyone under any circumstances or read the thoughts thereafter.

The four Padh, chaar Padh, four vital areas, are achieved by a man through one simple 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 lock the pituitary or the Agia Chakar, or the command center, by concentrating your eyes at the tip of the nose as we are doing now, and you desire anything to be creative with you, you apply that lock, and that lock is called MudraMudra Mudra means "seal." It usually refers to hand positions used in meditation and exercise practices. These hand positions are used to seal the body's energy flow in a particular pattern. More generally it can refer to other locks, bandhas (see Mul Bandh), and meditation practices that seal the flow of energy by concentration. . I'll like to teach you, the secret of prayer for health and happiness. Please lock your thumb, with your Sun finger, Sun finger is called ring finger, because, that you can measure today.

You know, knowledge you have or not, it's a matter of dispute, you got the, knowledge of elements or not, that is a dispute, whether you can communicate with somebody, it needs a practice, but right now, one thing we can know, how we feel right now, and how we will feel in few minutes, that's health, prosperity, self-confidence, self-esteem, all those worldly pleasures, so please lock your Sun finger with your thumb, that is called Surya MudraMudra Mudra means "seal." It usually refers to hand positions used in meditation and exercise practices. These hand positions are used to seal the body's energy flow in a particular pattern. More generally it can refer to other locks, bandhas (see Mul Bandh), and meditation practices that seal the flow of energy by concentration. , Sun lock they call it and put your eyes at the tip of the nose and lock it deep towards the center, breathe consciously long and deep. Play that tape, Ang Sang, the new prayer tape, and we are going to play the prayer tape.

(Tape, 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.

YB: (Over the tape) Go deep inside you.

(Tape ends)

Inhale deep, hold the breath, hold it tight, exhale. Inhale again deep, hold it, let it go. Again inhale deep, hold it tight, relax, please stretch your body. We have done it off and on for about thirty-one minutes, because on very first day, I don't expect you can consistently do it, but I will like to tell you something very straightforward and simple, that if you can lock it like that as you have locked it today and be consistent and constant and deep for thirty-one minutes, I don't think you need anything, for any reason, everything will come within yourself for your own reasons. There is a one SutraSutra Section from scripture. which I am translating :"O my Lord, you are everywhere, I can find you. But when I concentrate it on my Agia ChakraChakra , Chaakra The word connotes a wheel in action. It usually refers to the seven primary energy centers in the aura that align along the spine from its base to the top of the skull. Each chakra is a center of consciousness with a set of values, concerns, and powers of action associated with it. and lock you in, you who are everywhere, became only within me."

I am just literally translating those lines.

I search second SutraSutra Section from scripture. . "I searched and searched and searched for Thee called, called, called, did all the prayer which I could do, but I could not find you at all. When I lock you within my own self at the point of my third eye, you became me and I became you, and all barriers fell apart."

So these things which have been said and done are not just said it for public relation sake, these are the words of those, who have experimented, who have found themself, who have exalted themself and who worked on it.

Tomorrow we will practice lot of variations, in this MudraMudra Mudra means "seal." It usually refers to hand positions used in meditation and exercise practices. These hand positions are used to seal the body's energy flow in a particular pattern. More generally it can refer to other locks, bandhas (see Mul Bandh), and meditation practices that seal the flow of energy by concentration. , it's different versions and varieties and different experiences, it isn't fun for now, and I don't think if you have done, I did it only for thirty minutes, in the sense I knew, you can hardly lock it for five, ten minutes, maximum, you will go off and try to go on, some will not even try to go on again, but in between give you the chance of good and very good, you will not be the same tomorrow, that's how powerful, this is. One day, one time, if you can just solidly consolidate yourself for a eleven minutes, only, you can take care of all your glandular system and the Chemistry of the blood shall change, it's a law which I didn't make it, like this line, "I searched God everywhere and its secrets, but when I found in my Ajana, I laughed at myself, what a fool I was, that I wasted all my time before, now I have found my own Lord, within my own heart."

This science of Yoga is very original scientific way of man and God, but it is within the man and within the man, in the God and God within the God, the art of self-realization or whatever you want to call it, it's not very difficult. We will pursue it tomorrow, its other facets and its own acts of doing it. It has three MantrasMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind. Tra-ng is the wave or movement of the mind. Mantra is a wave, a repetition of sound and rhythm that directs or controls the mind. When you recite a mantra you have impact through the meridian points in the mouth, through its meaning, through its pattern of energy, through its rhythm, and through its naad - energetic shape in time. Recited correctly a mantra will activate areas of the nervous system and brain and allow you to shift your state and the perceptual vision or energetic ability associated with it. , one is, "Ek Ong Kar, SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Gurparsad" the other 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.

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. " watch these words, they are almost very personified sound and the third is "Har, Har Wa Hey 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. ," that's all, three MantrasMantra Sounds or words that tune or control the mind. Man means mind.

"Waah Yantee Kar Yante Jag Uth Patee Waa Haa.

Brahmaa Dey Treshaa 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. It Wha-Hay 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. ."

From that time, at that time there was no Sikh religion and nobody knew what 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.

And these are the words of RishiRishi Enlightened being; Yogi. Patanjali,

"Waah Yantee Kar Yante Jag Uth Patee Waa Haa.

I am talking of centuries ago, when you could not even spell religion. It was very funny, before coming to the class, I was watching a movie, and then I cracked up, because I was three year old when this movie was made, I am sixty-two, so you understand what I mean? And stories then and story now, there was no difference, and last minute I switched on CNN, thirty-one channel, and the report was, facto, you know report comes, 'Israelis made more love during the scud missile attacks, they have done in previous three years,' and they were giving explanations, why people were so horny and why they felt that way, they felt tomorrow you will die, let's do it plus sealed rooms and nobody, no noise and, it was the funniest engagement, which came on the news. So don't misunderstand and under threat you become numb, sometimes you become more active.

(Students laugh)

So, in other words, when you consolidate yourself and you lock your entire glandular system, don't misunderstand, that you will become dumb, but you will become very exalted. The activities, will corresponds to your higher intelligence. We will practice certain things tomorrow, I will have to, I think do it, three, four, five, times to complete, because this is a very important ChakraChakra , Chaakra The word connotes a wheel in action. It usually refers to the seven primary energy centers in the aura that align along the spine from its base to the top of the skull. Each chakra is a center of consciousness with a set of values, concerns, and powers of action associated with it. , Ajana, and I will cover all its faculties and facilities, but the diet, for achieving this engagement which we are doing, is Rice and Yogurt, Rice and Yogurt, Rice made with Kesar, what they call it, what we call it? Saffron. There are, there is a recipe, you may write it down, Almonds, Almonds, this Kishmish, Kishmish... Raisins, Saffron, Rice and Yogurt, is it five thing.

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

YB: Uh!

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

YB: You are right, five things, Almonds, without skin and Kishmish is Raisins two, Saffron, three and Rice four and Yogurt five. If you can go for seven days on a Mono diet on this, you can totally revive your entire system, but there is a condition with it, you can only drink lemon and water, not straight water, that is a extra condition with this and you cannot have this fast or feast, whatever we are calling it, for more than seven days. You must break it after seven days.

And as we were taught to do, when we were in dire fatigue and difficulty and all that or we used to prepare, I used to prepare for the Olympics and our annual Athletic meets and all that, we will go like this, we will go seven day on this diet, and then seven day on Kichidy and what you call it (?), whatever, and then again seven days, again on that, again on that, like this we will prepare ourself... it gives you such a stamina, it changes you so much, gives body so much flexibilities, it gives so much punch to you, you can't even understand, you totally become different, and specially, very specially, in the month of fifteenth March to fifteenth April, what they call it, Peace Spring, isn't it.

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

YB: Uh! When spring starts?

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

YB: Yeah, but it is Peace Spring, right, within that spring right, fifteenth of March is not spring yet in right, and fifteenth of April it is already, young, they say within that period, the entire body go through, renewing itself, so this is the time to try. Now let us have this birthday thing, happy birthday.

Students sing: Happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Amar Das Singh Khalsa JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. .

YB: And many more, as sweet as the cookies are. As you prepare the rice, you blanch the Almonds and next morning you, use GheeGhee Clarified butter. or some Olive oil and sauté it and Saffron you have to soak it, at night before and put water, Raisins you have to soak also, it's a, it's a very wonderful dish to eat. Oh, thank you, hello!

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

YB: Oh, they are.

(Students laugh)

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

YB: Uh, Sugarless, really, I forgot you.

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

YB: You have left a section here.

(Students laugh)

No, I think you give me some I will take them with me because, I always get people in the midnight, so...

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

YB: That will be nice, we will serve them. It is so unfortunate, the Republican guards didn't get any rest, now they are fighting their own people, first they fought the light forces, ceasefire happened, and now there is a revolt in the southern Iraq, and an very intense firing is going on, so I mean fighting 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 not over in the, in the luck of Iraqis, I think, and there is a possibility, that in the north, the Crusade may getup again and there may be fight there too, so I mean, I think they thought Allah is with them, but, Allah just doesn't feel like to be there for the moment.

(Students laugh)

Do you know to rebuilt Kuwait, it will take one hundred billion dollars, and do you know today, they shipped three hundred fifty metric ton of food and they were distributing to Kuwaitis, which is the richest nation in the world, but the locals didn't have food, and this was the first time after occupation, some people just ate, you know, it was amazing. So things can go wrong without notice.

Out of this wholly, whole wholly episode I should say, we will earn ninety-two hundred billion dollars in seven years, in projections of Defense and reconstructions and rehabilitations and God knows but there was a whole detail list, but they are not willing to become Democratic overnight, did you see that scene today, the Prince of Wales came and all the Iraqis, without question and answer, wherever they were, they just prostrate, bow, they were questioned, there was no, on few officers were supposed to do, what they were supposed to do, but ordinary citizens, and that's their national discipline. Thank God, war is over. Now we have to bring peace to ourself within ourself, thank you and goodnight. "May the long time Sunshine"

Students: "May the long time Sunshine upon you..."

YB: Be at peace and be with love, SatSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. Sat Naam , Sat Nam The essence or seed embodied in form; the identity of truth.
