YB: I'll be sorry, I'll be talking to you very frankly and that may not be a happy talk. Getting you this evening, asking you to come here and not appreciating you is very sad thing, right? Time will come when you will not hear my talk anymore. That day you will realize that you are orphan. Some of you will make it because it is the destiny, some won't. If you can't convert your emotions to devotion it is your will. All I can say is if something has helped you and saved you share with others and I always give one example. There was a time when I used to live 9006, Philips road. One day I was suffering with fever and there was three days in a row, temperature didn't come down. In those days some of our students who were very faithful and loyal, who were not on the ego trip and were very phony, they used to volunteer to baby sit. Between the exchange of that baby siting there was one girl who never knew that I had fever. A person walked in from hospital because (?) he was sick and tired for seven days and nothing happened in hospital. He was one of our student. (?) used to come to yoga class. He knocked at the door and asked her, "I want to see Yogiji." And she came and said, "Somebody has come from hospital and he is sick and he has fever. And he has come to see you."

Now what I can say? I said, "Ask him to come in."

He came in, he satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down, I told him I said, "Friend, what I can do for you?"

He said, "JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. , I want not this fever, (?) long time I am in hospital, I came from hospital (?) doctors, I thought I'll see you and get rid of this fever."

About fifteen minutes before that thing I took my temperature and it was hundred and four point five. But I knew in my heart he has come with a hope and I can give him that hope. And I was so weak and tired myself I couldn't lift my own hand. I asked him, I said, "Well, you are very brave, you came all the way, could you lift my hand and put it on your head?"

He did it. After fifteen minutes I saw him sweating. I took my thermometer out of my pillow and gave it to him, I said, "Go and watch it and take your temperature." It was ninety-seven point some two or one. He left, but my fever never left me.

If you cannot give people anything, at least you can be kind and you can give them hope. Nothing I ask you anything. Be with people. Everybody is not going to wear white. There are very few people who are convinced that they can jump on faith in the river in which we are flowing and they can enjoy the swim. Some will like to walk on the banks alone. But just remember they are people. You can ask me many things and without your asking I can (?) give you reply. I have lot of hurt in my heart.

I saw people coming to yoga class and after yoga class they used to invite girls to take them out for dinner and then they do all that Hollywood trick which is normally done in this country. I was sick and tired of those behavior, I asked my all students to start eating garlic. That stopped that nonsense.

(Students' laughter)

Then I saw another situation, whenever girls used to go and they used to wear normally as this society wears and everybody will look around they used to have different radiance and different psyche and they were always picked up. And I couldn't stand that tragedy and torture. Finally one day I talked to Premika, I said, "How to get out of this whole thing?"

She said, "What?"

I said, "This nonsense which is happening doesn't make any sense to me. Somehow we have to survive and we are being preyed upon very fast. Our radiance has become our enemy."

And we satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down and we decided something should be done. And while talking to her I remember myself I went to sleep. That sudden sleep sometime for which you have no answer, what happens to you. When I opened up my eyes I saw her wearing a double turban. I couldn't believe why she did it. And she said, "Is this all right?"

I looked at her and said, "This is the birth of the Khalsa. There will be no gender, no male, no female, you have done something which was not done in the history of this dharmaDharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. ."

And I said to her, I said, "Whosoever shall wear it, her family and her incarnation and her generation will not be preyed by cupid in sex and not brought to this earth forever. I want to remind you."

If you don't want your daughters to suffer, if you don't want this society should grind them into the sexual wheels of its teeth, if you want all that what is happening and still want to live in it aloof, that is why we will put a reflector around her and we look different so that those men who have no 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. they must understand consciously that we are not available and we are not chicks, we are eagles. That does not mean that you have to follow the rules. You can enjoy the way you are enjoying, it won't hurt me.

You must basically understand, I'll never depend on you and that day I'll choose my death the day I have to ask you to help me. I am asking you to help yourself. I am telling you the time before this (?). Don't misunderstand me. I am not on trip and I have nothing to gain. Within this society the lowness of 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. has eaten up to the extent we have to rise and create an environment at our own sacrifice to build a family within the family. We are not doing anything which separates us from people. We are exactly doing something to separate ourselves from those people who are out to hunt, we are not available. We have every right to protect our coming generations, our own self and our own families. That is why we have to fully and honestly use amendment one of the American constitution.

One girl once asked me, "Yogiji, are you against wearing the long dresses?"

I took her aside, I said, "Sometime I must speak truth, I love them."

And she said, "Why don't you allow anybody to wear?"

I said, "The history of that long dress is it ends up in a hot pant."

In a hot pant. I just don't want to associate myself with that history. We have been exploited once and many times.

Simply I am asking you, I don't want the children who are born to us they should go through the grind of the same time through which we have gone. Clouds can come on all and everybody, so the sun shines. But if we will stay united together with the power of our conviction and our truth we may not have saved ourselves perfectly but we can give the values to our born that at least they will not suffer. To my honesty I believe we can exist, I believe we have the right to exist. I believe we can fortify ourselves to protect ourselves. Therefore I honesty believe we have to live different. We have to look different. Because we have to give different values to ourselves, because the values we have already given to ourselves have not worked.

'Aasa ishth upasana, khaan paaan pairaan (?) pechaan.'

The way to worship, the way to reach the imagination of worship, ishth, the performance of worship, way to wear, way to eat and way to live and walk, if these six things are not together person belongs to different regions.

You basically must understand, it doesn't matter who you are and what your past is. It does matter who you are and what your future is. We have to decide future. Do we want our children to go through the tube? Through the same drain tube through which we have gone, do we want our children to leave us when they are in their teenage. Do we want our children to run away from our homes and leave us. Do we want our children to use drugs. Do we want our children to do all that what we never wanted to do and still we did. If we want to change and we want them to change we have to change first. Because you cannot give anybody what you don't have. If you can't honestly change, don't expect they will change. And then as parents you will say what I did wrong? If you ask that question to yourself go ahead. I can do only one thing for you, I can pray for all of you. I never call you my disciples, neither you are, I always will lean to my 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. and my God never to you.

My 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, I have to deliver you your message. If you want to pick up the note and live it, fine. If not it's fine. Do you want to save your future generations or not, this decision has to be with you, not with me. Do we want to send our teenage daughter to go and date and give somebody right to play and lay on and face unmother wedded pregnancies and all that torture we have gone through or do we want to give her the values that she is the grace of God. It is for you to decide. Do we want to exploit through our emotions in our own bankruptcy of mind and 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 invade the territories which do not belong to us. Or do we want to stop and be honest and do not pass all that garbage of 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.

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. on to the coming innocent angels who have chosen us as parents. Do we mentally, emotionally, sentimentally and in our devotion we want to prepare ourselves for that day or we want to rot in our life. That is what I am asking you to decide it for yourself. Your own 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. shall answer you, I simply want to remind you, God lives in cozy home, not in crazy home. And you have two choices of polarity-you can be cozy or crazy. You get up in the morning and pray to God, get filled with the nectar of namNaam , Nam The manifested identity of the essence. The word derives from Naa-ay-ma , which means "that which is not, now is born." A Naam gives identity, form, and expression to that which was only essence or subtle before. It is also referred to as the Word. , or the time shall prey on you.

Law of polarity is law of God to which God is also subject to. Ego is nothing but to go from the earth, God is nothing but to go to the destiny. If you want to live on your elementary destiny you will face the 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. of all previous incarnations. If you want to give yourself to the given destiny you have to sacrifice and live right up to it. There cannot be two values. You have to save yourself. only then you can save yourself onslaught of generations to follow you and you have to be the pioneer to that effect. Don't misunderstand me. I came, I loved you, I shared with you what I know. I'll be gone. At the rate you are growing they won't let me alone. I am aware of it. Then your shoulders has to carry the weight and they have to be strong. What use is that human who cannot save his child from the tragedy and the onslaught of the character of time. What use is this knowledge, what use is this possessions, what use is this life, if our children have to suffer with the same thing what we have suffered with. That's why our giving our children the distance therapy of emotional values that they can stand and understand how to live and what for to live, so,that they cannot exploit our emotions, our weaknesses and pick that up.

I love cozy homes and I love everybody to have their children right in their bed. But those homes where parents do not know what they are doing they are still settling their scores, it's a living hell for the innocent who can pick (?) and intuitively all signals of distrust and (?) emotions.

Therefore the answer to that was laid down years ago to build a commonwealth of the Khalsa where everybody can be taken care of. It is not a dream, it's a reality now. Those days are gone when we are alone, when you feel some people in 3HO just say nay, nay, nay to you and you feel they are not loving, no, they are loving. They have to say nay, nay, nay to you. Don't blame them. They have suffered and they don't want to drown again. They have the right to save themselves, they love you that does not mean they have to drown with you to prove that they are in love with you.

Sometime you see this 3HO people are very scared, it is right they are very scared, they do not want somebody to lay a pound of pot on them and get them searched and they sit in jail, they have enough of it. They are not distrustful and mean, they are simply protective. They just don't want to pollute their few years of 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. . Don't misread them. Everybody has the right to grow, 3HO family has a certain standard, either they are happy, healthy and holy or they want to be happy, healthy and holy or they are trying to be happy, healthy and holy or they are praying they are happy, healthy and holy or they are wishing they should be happy, healthy and holy or they just think they maybe happy, healthy and holy. Why you want to take anybody's chance?

We have to understand one thing that we have to stand under each other. But not emotionally but devotionally. Path has been laid down by the GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. , simply we have to practice it. Whether you like it or not, whether you want it or not, whether you participate or not, God's will shall happen. Khalsa shall exist. That is why I go and tell the Indians, I say to them, don't tell me what they are doing, ask God 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. , who is making them to do what they are doing. They are trying to stay pure and they are very much anxious to learn. If you have any question ever come and ask me, if you have any strength show it and share it with the world. Share your weaknesses with me and share your strength with people. Look strong and live strong. When I'll be gone your questions shall be answered anyway, but don't pretend that you are so weak that you even can't hold yourself.

People come to you to trust you that you are teachers. People come to learn from you, they come to you because they want to be happy, healthy and holy and they think you are very beautiful. Don't show them you are not. Share them with your convictions, give them hope, trust them as God has sent them to you, don't lay your own trip. When you sit on this chair and we chant ong namo Gurudev namo, you are not you. Give people these values which you have got. Perception, conception, conviction are the basis of every life. I am sometime very surprised why you are so upset about 3HO and Sikh Sikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. DharmaSikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. Dharma A path of righteous living. It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. , it takes five dollars, go to a barber, entire Sikh Sikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib.

It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe. It is action without reaction or karma. and 3HO will be left there and send the bill to me, I'll honor it.

It will take you years and years to be what you want to be. To leave something doesn't take time, you can do it anytime you like. You are not slaves, you are being. It is amazing to me when I see you teaching and when I know what you know. And it is shocking to me, all these people who have such a big panorama performance of their personality they know not a thing what you know. What glitter is not gold and gold doesn't rust. We will survive, you have to decide in your 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. whether you want to come along or not. We don't hate anybody. We don't reject anybody.

It is amazing you don't understand me at all. If somebody would not have picked me up with his grace and taught me what I know I would have been a rotten person myself. It came to us as a divine gift, I shared with you the same way. Now people walk to you in thousands and it's a matter of few years babies, just wait. They will pull your gates down.

You still have some dream of those old values. We don't live on sunset strip anymore. We don't believe in those trip living. We have volunteered ourselves to change our values. I know a person five years ago she used to smoke six packets of cigarette a day. I knew her then and I knew her that day when she wanted to punch somebody because she couldn't stand smoke, same person. Just it's a matter of values. That's why I sometime make a fun of myself. Come on let us do this thing, let us see what people say. It's a fun to say.

You have to carry this on. I have to just leave it up to you. I did my job, so long I am supposed to live I'll keep on doing it. I am very serious about it.

That day a friend of mine examined me and said, "You got to take rest."

I said, "That is very best of you to say."

He said, "You won't live long."

I said, "Who wants it?"

I have calculated, if I have lived thirty years and I live three years, I prefer three years and keep on working and keep on striving and stressing myself to see that you hear me at least, than to live thirty years and be sick and tired of you. Earlier I quit happy I shall be.

Life has no meaning to me, except one thing if you can make it. I don't live for myself, folks. All this jewelry and this uniform of mine and all this, this (?) ritual and tantrums I do about myself who the hell wants it, do you understand me? If not ask my secretary first thing I go and take off the whole load. But I don't want that you should be known as hippies, those poor kids. I can't stand it. I'll tell this world we are not poor kids, Rajyog takdiyan GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru.

We belong to that 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. . Our generation has to rule for five thousand years. There is no way out. We have transitory of eleven hundred years. We understand it. Nobody is going to teach us anything and we are not going to learn nothing, we know what we are. It's a transitory period in which anybody can make mockery of us. Doesn't mean a thing.

'Raaj karega Khalsa Akji Reha na kohe.'

Nobody should be ignorant for it.

'Khar hoye sab milenge bache sharan jo hoye.'

Through all the shame and the disrespect they will come back again to the reality of time. These are the words of prophecy of 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. . Either he has lied or he was truthful. Sometime they ask me, I made Sikh Sikh Dharma A living experience of values as taught in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib.

It is both an ideal of virtue and a path of action that is infused with clear awareness and comprised of actions that are the soul in total synchrony with the universe.

For the sake of the dust of your feet if I can be accepted in the court of my 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. I think I shall be the luckiest person with all my weaknesses and all my nonsense. I even don't want to be known as holy man. I know what these holy men do, they have got more holes than me. I don't want any part of it. I am sick of it. It is too much to be known as holy and be branded in the same category of those cattle. I have very enough of it.

I want to give you values, give you your self-respect so that you can stand on your own feet and you can radiate. My asking you was try to understand it, time is now. Let us unite, let us pull the thing together, let us be pleasant.

You must understand when your brother is sick and tired you cannot be happy, when your sister is suffering you cannot live in peace and we are not brother and sisters by the relation of earth, we are relationship of ether. At everyday many times at Hari Mandir, the prayer is done. Jaha jaha Khalsa sahib, taha taha rakhiya rehaith.

Ten million people get up each morning, many times and pray one thing. Nanak namNaam , Nam The manifested identity of the essence. The word derives from Naa-ay-ma , which means "that which is not, now is born." A Naam gives identity, form, and expression to that which was only essence or subtle before.

And then he gave you, you want to be GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru.

Somebody asked me, "Well, how to do this, how to do that? I am asking you something totally different."

I said, "Just leave your house and get prepared, lot of people are going to come to you."

They are going to walk to you. This time at summer time I satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. down under that mulberry tree and taught so many things just to prepare you for those days to come. My honest saying to you is you have to protect yourself and you wear this garb of white. People shall walk to you and at that time you will become the hand and the heart of GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru.

Simple thing, don't you ever think who you are. Just in his name pray in your silence, the answer shall be right before you. World is suffering and it is going to suffer more, because it has no direction, you are the hope. Have faith so that you can become faithful. First you have to have faith and then fill it up; when you will be faithful then you will flow. I knew that I have to work whole day, I ask myself I will work up to one o'clock. It didn't happen means happen, doesn't matter. What it matters if I don't survive, it does matter if you don't survive.

Sometime you say why we are so weak? You are weak because you look to your past and you live in past. How can you live in past and be hooked with it and still you can go ahead to the future? You have to decide to cut that tie so that you can elevate yourself so that you can do what you have to do. To teach one of you....

Side B

That is why Siri 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. GranthGranth Literally: knot: book. has written in such a way nobody can (?). It has a rhythm, it has a musical harmony and it has a (?). It's impossible to pollute it. And same thing I'll repeat again. "Isn't the life that matter, it is the courage you bring to it." All those teachers who want to teach astrology, palmistry, bah bah bah please listen to me, I know all those science. People come to you to learn 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.

He opened this long secret tradition to all. , they don't come to learn from you the palmistry and astrology. There are lot of institutes. You teach them what you have to teach, and you share with them what has (?) so that they should be grateful for your kindness. You are mankind, be kind.

I went to vegetarian congress, they talked bah bah bah, I said wait a minute, I have nothing to talk, we are mankind and it's unkind to kill anybody. Period. There was a rabbi he caught up on a lecture, he said, "Laws are for punishment. Basically people are supposed to be absolutely vegetarian."

I said, "My friend rabbi, it is not true. Laws are laws, here we are talking something very simple and honest, you are my brother vegetarian, I am vegetarian, why we are vegetarians? We have reverence for life and we want to have every reverence for every life. Period."

He said, "I agree."

I said, "(?)."

(?).

That is why I wanted to tell you if you will share with people what you have God will share with you what He has. I am not asking you to go out and salute people because nobody (?).
