Where we are teaching this?

Student: Whole life expo.

YB: Oh, whole life expo, awakening your mental, physical, and spiritual self, that balance you, 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. Bhajan, some guy.

(Students laugh)

Yeah, what is that? Oh, lotus root, we will cook it tonight, you finally found it, is that dish very good.

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

(Students laughs)

YB: Some people went to the restaurant, and made the dish for them, it's very good, oh KangaKanga Wooden comb; one of the Five K's worn by the baptized Sikhs. , beautiful, that's good, thank you, wow, okay, I will see it tonight, take it with me. We were talking about the charkas business, the science is five thousand year old, the purpose is, when there was no religion, this used to be the religion, people used to understand that man has a life, life has energy, then they knew that there is a 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. , there is a Apana and the balance of these two energies makes a person successful or a failure. Today if you are a failure, you have a Psychological problem or Psychiatric problem. In those days these words were not known, they were not part of the language. In those days, you had energy problem, and that's how they looked at it.

Twenty years living in Hollywood and living in Los Angeles, counseling stars and rich people of fame and name and everything, poor and nothing, I have come to conclude one thing. There is a one category of people, they have all what the Earth can offer them, and they have problems. The other type of people, who have nothing what the Earth can offer them and they have problems, you understand. But when I analyze the problem they are the same. Why the problem are same, because there is only one problem. If a human does not have a balance within himself, human is a problem within himself, how he expresses it and how he deals with it, and what happens to him, it's just a matter of time.

It's not that you are not beautiful, you are beautiful, you are sexual, you are attractive, you are talented, you are this, you are that, those things are just to survive you, you can survive rich or you can survive poor, it is comfortable to survive rich and be neurotic, it's easy to be neurotic and rich, than to be poor and neurotic, you can't afford the luxury.

(Students laugh)

Huh, huh, you know, everyday pedicure, and how much your nails need pedicure, everyday, I can understand going to bathroom everyday, but I can't understand, but this is how these people are, everyday hairdo, till they get baldheaded you know, this is all too much, because they are not sure who they are. Purpose of life is not that, to find out what can you do, purpose of life is to find out what you are, moment you find out, who you are, you are on sale, everybody will buy you, everybody will buy you. You know, look at my life, twenty years, I have no peer group, I have no friend, I don't know who to talk to, I can't take my complaints to anybody, it's ridiculous, 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. , 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. , coming out with complaints you know. So, I made up my mind, I get sick once a while, go to Doctor, that's the way to go.

(Students laughs)

After all it's a necessity to go. Today, I was lying down on my bed and I was thinking, if I keep lying down on this bed, everything runs, perfect, all I need a telephone, and then I found out pain in my shoulder, pain here, pain on this side, then I realized, okay, get on the treadmill man, and just do it, can you believe seven thirty in the morning to four PM, you are talking on the telephone and telling people, and you know what the funny thing is, whole day I talked, all I told everybody, finally in my analysis, keep up, that's all, one word. To bring to that word, every human being, there are hours of effort, people do not know how to keep up, it's not that they are at fault, really they want to know, there is no fault with people, they are very unfortunate, miserable people in the world, their transmission, Chakras are not right.

If at a right time, with a right opportunity, you are talking through a wrong 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. , you mess yourself up, forever, question is there is no reprimand for it, there is no repair, you can't go, and say, 'father, father I have sinned,' and he gave you a two hundred, "Hail Mary's" and you can get out of it, there is no such thing, one mistake, time is gone, opportunity is gone, balance is gone, matter is over with, it shall not come back again, it's very vital, is very vital. Once happened in my life.

I happened to work with an officer, just watch this, absolutely doesn't know law, deadly obnoxious, absolutely inferior, unfortunately he was the only one who escaped from training from me, somehow, coincidentally, he was trained at a different center, I happened to work with him. One day he told me, these are his words, I am quoting it,

"I hate you, and I really hate you. But my tragedy I do not know what to do about it."

I said, "I am so grateful that you have spoken to me, that you hate me, I thought it is more than that."

(Students laughs)

He said, "Why?"

I said, "It has happened, this, this is a very simple thing you know, don't you understand, you want me to explain to you, what it is?"

"What is it?"

I said, "I can't let you down. And I am so much in pain that you are stupid, not only I have to carry you, I have to project it to carry you, because if somehow, you fall apart, the whole system will, ultimately I have to fix it, it's not practical."

He said, "Why do you think I am stupid?'

I said, "You are stupid, because you think you are an officer."

He said, "What should I think? I am officer."

I said, "Mister stupid, this is how it works. When you are an officer, just think you are the best worker, just think you are the best worker, and work so hard, that you should be like an officer."

He said, "Prove it to me."

I took four files. I said, "Read these notes. This is what the clerk wrote. This is what the assistant wrote. This is what the superintendent wrote, and you stupid, you agreed, you just signed it. Now I deducted these files on the way, I kept them with me and I brought it to you. You know if these files go away under your signature, you can be suspended."

"How can they misguide me?"

I said, "It's very simple, they are clerks, they are not you. Wake up Mister. You are under probation here, and you are going to be dismissed, and that's a tragedy."

He said, "That's out of question, but I hate you, why I hate you?"

I said, "The question is very simple. You see me doing things, you want to be me, you don't have the capacity to be me, either you can love me and you have to admit what you admitted right now or you have to hate me."

He said, "You are right! How we are going to work it out."

I said, "Before you write anything, call me on the telephone."

"Why?"

I said, "To become learned, is always to be learn from the learned, I am very learned and you are very stupid. Now we happen to be the officers, and we have to work it out."

Believe me, I carried him, I covered him, after four months he understood the style, he understood the loopholes, he understood the pros and cons, he understood my style, he started working, even today, twenty years I have been in America, twenty years before I worked with him, forty years later, he paid a visit to me, specially, he managed to call, we satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down.

He said, "One thing I want to say, I am gracefully retired, and I have come to personally thank you," forty years later.

If you serve another person, you help another person, you elevate another person, you balance another person, you appreciate another person, you bring the best faculty of another person, they never can thank you. They may not realize once, they may not realize twice, they may not realize ten times, but that friendship shall be ever, and if you do not built up a personality, that you are always there to help, always there is to serve, always there to be, you are not human, and that is our pain. Our pain is not that we are not beautiful, we are not charming, we are not sexy, more those things are available, but we do not win trust forever, and if you cannot win the trust. You know morning till evening people are mad at me. One guy was telling me, "Twenty years ago, you told me this, this, this, it has not happened." Now listen to this phone call, it was a funny phone call.

I said, here you come from 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. one, that's okay, he is to the ground now he is going to lay his shit straight on me, and he is angry, I have to accept it, "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. ." Bless me.

So I said, "Oh yeah! Twenty years, I told you, you remember that? I don't! Remind me."

He said, "You said this, this, this."

I said, "What further I said."

"You also said, this, this, this."

I said, "Did you, did you implement what further I said."

"No!"

I said, "It, I said, this, this, this you are right, you have that talent, I see in you the potential, I understand that, but I also gave you the key. I told you there is a lock, I told you the key, you should have just rounded that key, and lock would have opened."

"What is my problem, 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. ? What is my problem?"

I said, "You are man of sixth 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. , you work with the first, there is in between a ladder case, which has absolutely no hold, you can never make it."

"Can I fly into Los Angeles to listen to this, 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. thing."

I said, "No you can get a tape. You can listen to it, it is the same thing coming here or there, I am just telling the science, there is a science about it, this life is a science, is perfect." Heart beat is heart beat, and blood circulation is blood circulation, and stomach digest, and juices come, and the glands, glandular system works, the whole, don't you understand, that all works. If your brain come out before your eyes, do you see me 'I am your brain,' has, have that happened, have you seen that, has your stomach said, 'I am on vacation today, darling I don't feel good, I am not going to digest today,' has it said that, no, no, has your stomach said, "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. listen my dear darling, I am not going to digest today, I am on a vacation, I need one day rest," you keep on pouring parmesan and Tomujan and Gamujan and this jan and that jan and, you know poor stomach goes to the grind of it. If you just think this unpaid servant Mister stomach, is doing so much digestion for you, let us give a day rest one day a week, why can't you be with that conscious, give it a rest, it will serve you longer, it will serve you better, it will recuperate, you can't do that.

Hindus did this thing, look at the Hindus, they are funny religion, I like that religion. And once in a year, eleven days, is the Akashthithi, there is something with the Moon and the Ramayana, something they made a religion, some story so, eleven days you can't eat, period, then on full Moon you cannot eat, then on the eleventh Moon, when the glandular system at the maximum optimum you cannot eat, in a month, you understand. Then on every Tuesday, because it's a Mars day, you cannot eat, you follow what I mean, and then, in once in a week, half day you can eat, half day you have to feed somebody, so you cannot eat for half day, you calculate it will lot many days, then on the birthday of every Lord Rama, Lord Krishna, they have twenty-four crores of a deities, somehow you can't eat.

(Students laugh)

So actually what they are telling you, don't overeat, that's all they are saying, and GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. Guru Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. Gobind SinghGuru Gobind Singh Tenth Guru of the Sikhs. said,

"Alap ahaar sulap see Nindra,

Daya Chama Tann Preet."

In three lines, in one single line he decided, Alap Ahaar, eat little, Sulap See Nindra, Turaya Nidra, sleep, that in second you should sleep, Daya Chama Tann Preet, Daya mercy, kindness, Chama forgiveness and love, if you have these three things in your body character, then you don't need to eat, because you will not be under stress, you will not be under tension, you will not, you know, under stress you overeat, it's a Biological situation. Our Chakras are our validations, they are real, they call on us and they have to be understood. Mankind understood them when there was nothing, every human understood from where to speak, to who to speak and when to speak for what to speak. That's why the Bible said, 'in the beginning there was a word, word was with God, and word was God,' it matters a lot what you say, it matters a lot what you hear.

Look at the Moslems, there is a one month of Ramzan, you can't eat, period. Whole month, and it's such a strict fast, you won't believe it. Before the Sunray touches the Earth, they can eat, and the late night they can break the fast, in between no food, no water, not even the spit has to go back in, what is it? Endurance. So, what I am trying to explain to you that we have a life with ourself, I am not asking you not to go to other programs, please go. I am not asking you not to do other therapies, please do it. I am not asking you not to care for your neurosis, please do, but I am giving you the end line, nothing shall work, if you not workout within your own balances, you can do the patch up work , you can keep going, you can be understood, but in the long run there is no counseling, which can counsel you to be you. You have to decide, moment you decide that you have to be you, I am, I am, the matter stops, detoriation in life stops, complex will stop. If people trust you, they shall never offend you.

This love is a very commotional love, it's a conditional love is, it's a love you buy, you sell you, give gifts you this puch, puch, puch and all that, (?) and there is nothing to it. I mean majority of the people, I am sixty-two year old, I have talked to them, I don't think, they know what the love is, 'I made love, I was in love, I fell apart from love, I blew up my love, I do,' I don't know what they are talking about. I mean they are so idiot, they don't understand that love is blind, when you are in love, you do not know you blew it or not blew it, you see nothing, you are in love. Person in love feels nothing, sees nothing, hears nothing, wants nothing, absolutely 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. , Zero, when the consciousnessConsciousness The nature of the self and being. In the realm of nature, awareness becomes consciousness. It is from the being itself. Being is expressed in consciousness through contrasts and sensations, in awareness through merger, clarity, and reality. , and emotions and feelings, and identity comes to zero, towards anything, you are in love, otherwise don't use this word.

Yes you play bait, 'I love you, honey, I am in love with you,' absolutely not, you are saying it to get yourself a time and space and she is getting it or he is getting it just for that reason, there is no such thing as love, it is a, it is a, what they call, buttering the, you know it's a, 'come on, slip up,' emotional love, commotional love, emotional neurosis, commotional neurosis, sexual love, sensual love, love at first sight, made so mate love, I have seen so many varieties, and within my lifetime, and I wonder, those who do not love themself, how they can love others. I am wondering very much, how much lizard can become Arabian horse, I don't know, do you know, have you seen recently, maybe some technology has been used, that lizard has start running like Arabian horse, is that true. This story of love is the story of imbalance of Chakras, it is with us from day one. Let us do the workshop today, come on.

Did you bring bananas?

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

YB: Did you eat bananas today!

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

YB: What about those nuts, what they call them?

Students: Water Chestnuts.

YB: Water Chestnuts! Siri Har NarayanNarayan A Name of God in the aspect of Sustainer. , how was the dish with the Water Chestnut and with that Cashews and all that, good?

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

YB: It's a very Oriental dish. Sometime try it please, take Water Chestnut, and lot of them, not just two, and take lot of Cashews and take some Olive oil, and have some herbs, you know, whatever you want and sauté this stuff and if you can get lotus root, you know I got it today and I am going to home and cook it, these are the things for the second 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. . Now, this is the problem you can have. These hands have these endings, these are seventy-two, also nerves there as they are in the foot, they are in the hand too. But if you press this, you don't have to make a root lock today, we are going really do workshop, I mean we are going to do it and it's going to do it, we are going to do it and it's going to do it, so we are in absolute balance in it, but you see, just watch me so, I am going to sit back on the pad, and I am going to enjoy you are doing, I am not going to talk too much and give you all the time instructions, but I want to be very clear, so that you know it as a science.

Whether you have a penis or you have a vagina, the center point is either you can caught clitoris or you can root adaptors, what they call that base of clitoris in the women, what do they call them? Base, you have a base, you know, all men;

(Students and YB laughs)

You know I have to literally talk to you in that language, so that scriptures may not go wrong, I can go wrong, I am not going to take the risk, they say Adadi, Adadi means the basic base, a penis has Lingam has a basic base, so but female has a basic base too, and it's not the G point inside and two point inside and all that, it is the very outside point called clitoris, so you have a full medical name for it, men poor, you know, they don't have that, so they have a basic base, you got it, you understand. Now that basic base and that clitoris has to be stimulated by your pull, that's the consideration, ladies you have concentrate little more, men can do it easy, so you have to pull the basic base and you have to pull the clitoris, and not the Anus, otherwise it will become Mool Bandh, it become root lock, with the Anus, and second 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 navel pointNavel Point The sensitive area of the body near the umbilicus that accumulates and stores life force. It is the reserve energy from this area that initiates the flow of the Kundalini energy from the base of the spine. If the navel area is strong, your vital force and health are also strong. .

If a human can apply root lock he becomes invincible, so long the lock exists, you know when they apply this lock, when sometime you are dead tired, you are nervous, you are, a situation that you can't stand on your feet, you are going to fall apart, you are dizzy, apply root lock, you will go solid through, solid, absolutely solid, it's amazing energy, and it's within you, so, we will come to the root lock later, we are working on the second 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. , but you have to pull that, the hands have there is a angle for it, I mean if you do this, it is simultaneous, and at the same time, you pull that. If you can bring that balance, today you can heal yourself, it's just like that, it, it's a very, it is a scientific effort, I am not, is not something big or small, you can't do it like this, that, that lady sitting there one day, and there was a one man he was doing like this, I said, well, he is asking the fishes to go away, you know what.

(Students laughs)

What should I say. The guy paid ten dollars, got nothing out of it, what should I say, I mean it's a tragedy, it will, I should refunded the money you know, it's totally ridiculous is this, there is nothing you know, you pay the rent for it, I have nothing to get out of it, which is totally, I teach for the joy of it and just to know you to see you, to twice a week, that's it is, because, you know inflation, prices are going up, first time in the United State, I used to teach Tantric course for thirty-five days, for five days straight, for weekend people used to charge three hundred and fifty dollar, I never went in to it, I am so rich, because I have all of you, that's why I invested in.

This is a very crazy idea to believe that "Ang San 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 is with me, it's a very proven faculty, it's very amazing, whole my life I have never put God on a leeway, my entire intuitive action is based on the fact, 'you are the God you do it, it's not my problem, if I have failed, you have failed, if I have succeeded, you have succeeded, it's none of my problem,' neither I take blame nor I take appreciation, it's a very neutral state. So I, what I am trying to ask you is that I have practiced, I know what it does, I know what it means, I am not reading a book, now, you will balance this, then I am not doing that, I am just telling you I have practiced, I have done it, I know it works, I know it is exact, and I know the beauty of it, somebody told me, 'I have done for forty days that, from left nostril, and but it is very difficult to count from the sixteen;'

I said, "It's very simple. You put this nostril, inhale then finger has fifteen and exhale sixteen."

He said, "What it is very easy?"

Is aid, "You didn't ask, I didn't tell you.' But I know how to count sixteen, it's very difficult to count sixteen like this, but if you do one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, that's a go. I mean to say those people who wrote must have done it, I never teach something, which I have not done it, if I am not sure, I am not sure, I don't care, you know after all, that is what it is. So if you fail to do this, this, this, you are failing in the whole thing, you are not going to have that experience, I want you to today, to get to it, you know what I mean, just to have it, little bit, little taste, then you will enjoy it, then the concept of ejaculation and a full intercourse and loving and kissing (?) huk, huk, huk, and today you can get it in a very polite solid, you know what I am trying to say, you can get it, if you just try it right, then what you can do, you can dance, if you practice today or later, and you can get this energy under control, then you can total get your energy under control, second 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. is very important.

If you can do that you can do lot of things, lot of things, not this thing or that thing, lot of things, you can concentrate, you can elevate yourself, you can makeup to the point, you can come through, you can control yourself, if you are dead angry, I am saying not angry, dead angry, pull it, you will start smiling, you can totally control your mood, you can totally change your projection, you can totally understand your (?), it's so powerful, that's why I am emphasizing so much, it's a real thing, like Coke.

(Students laughs)

And don't leave home without it, carry your second 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. with you, I am not kidding,

(Students laughs)

If you remember you have a second 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. , then you will remember you have a control over it, majority of your problem therein, they will not happen to you, because if you can do the pull which I am giving you, and you can practice the point, without this you can do it, you can immediately intuitively get the answer, it's the, the most whole creative projection unit of your, in the brain is tie in there, actually telling you frankly, all man does is to get to the partner, you know, in business all you want to do get to the partner, in opportunity all you want to get to the partner, in correspondence you want to get to the partner, the purpose of life, is get to the partner, and the center to get to the partner which you must have powerful control, is the second 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. , you understand, it is sinking in somewhere, so this is it.

I can do it without it, so excuse me if I am not just pushing like that, but I am just trying to tell you, because I have a years of practice, I don't have to do this. But ultimately you can also do that, that without doing it, but if just to start better and understand, don't press Anus with it, normally a bad habit is you do that, then it become Ad Mool Bandh, then it's a different thing, it's a different story, so, just like this. Look at the eyes, at the tip of the nose, concentrate on your energy and play that tape yesterday you played.

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

YB: Hands are, hands are not this way, it they have come this way, this way.
