... It's my personal request. This jewelry was designed and made by one of my son, it was worn in the honor of the grace of God movement of women of America, it's very symbolic to me. So there is a very graceful Italian woman made by a very special person by his hand in the center of it, in the heart of it, so I wore it to honor the grace of the woman of all the world. I know it is very striking, my apologies but whenever I come to 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. 's house I try to come in my best, leaving all my wrongs behind because my faith is I am not interested how wrong I am, I am interested how fast good I can be; little philosophy which I am pursuing from last fifty eight years, I hope your will follow it.

The subject is Sikh Dharam, Dharam has a whole aspect of life and what it does for us and that is a very simple explanation I am going to give it to you. Dharam Dha- Ram, there are two basic notes in it, Da, da mean onslaught, tovo, tavo, meditate and go as a onslaught, one is a war, one is a peace. Dharam, aram, the initial eye of the son Ram, Ram aram in the very Aad sach, Aad sach aram means no difference, walk on the original onslaught on the original self of your Dharam, karam, ka-Ra-Rum, the original creation of the God, Ek Ong Kar, so you can't separate both of them. If you are too much on this earth, too much with this earth, you will, you will lose the sophisticated of the heaven, if you are too much sophisticatedly with heaven you will lose the practicality of the earth, both way you will be miserable, that's what 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 Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. taught. He said, don't leave the homes, go in jungle and meditate, that's all you do, that's not real and he said not be too much on this earth and forget about the heavens where ultimate the home you have got to go and that's not real either. That is what it is called the panth, it is together. What is spun together, what is spun together is called panth and our panth, and our path and our salvation, our liberation is based on two things; by sangat and by pangat, we eat together with greetings and accepted as a grace of God, we live together in greetings and accept the great of laws and all the 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. , all the discipline, all the 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. , all the prayer, all the charity, all the offering only are done to make us strong enough to do it.

The most strongest thing in human is you can eat with anybody and everybody in grace, you can live and be with anybody in grace, otherwise my dear, you can intend and pretend and be graceful but your disgrace will come out of you, it takes three to seven minutes to put a man to confront a disgraceful situation, if his grace is not overriding, disgrace will overtake, doesn't matter which religion you belong to, doesn't matter you are a Mukhia Singh SahibMukhia Singh Sahib Title for a male regional minister in Sikh Dharma. or a 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. or a Singh Sahib or a Mahan, Maha Sant, whatever you want call yourself, priest, padre, archbishop, pope, doesn't matter.

There are only two values in human life-meet the disgrace head on and show the grace you have and that is the purpose of life, that is the aim of life, that is the essence of life and that is what a 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. teaches. Any 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. which lays guilt on you, which tells you, you are born and you are sin and you can be miserable, anything which tells you, you are handicap, anything which tell you, you are not pure, anything which tell you, you are not good has nothing to do with you, all it needs you and your blood. God never created you with any handicap. If God is perfect, the perfect cannot create imperfect.

So if you are the creation of God and if 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 Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. NanakGuru Nanak First Guru of the Sikhs. has said Ek Ong kar and if that you believe, then you are the creation of that one, where is the duality. If you are the creation of one why don't you stick to it? There are two words in sangat and pangat, so much so the importance of pangat is, eat together, good and bad, holy and unholy, real and unreal 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. Amar Dev told king the Akbar, "If you want see me first go in the kitchen and eat with all as equal, then come and then I will give you the audience." If third 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. felt that necessity, it mean at that time things were not right. There is always a way that we want to eat special, we want to eat in our own way and we want to preside when we eat.

I will never forget in New York I went to the house of this people, a beautiful house, in that day it was worth couple million dollars. We ate in the kitchen standing because there is a fight who will sit on my right and who will sit on my left, and where I will sit, the fight become a family quarrel and it become a battle, finally the only way to eat was stand in the kitchen, put your own thing on the plates and eat there and we all did it and I learnt a lesson of my life.

It is the most difficult test 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. , test of grace, test of Divinity in you how you eat and I want to tell you something; doesn't matter who you are when it comes to eating your all ego comes first because ego and eating is sustenance to the earth and sangat is the most difficult thing to do. Coming to the GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. may not be a process anyway, you may not listen, you may not learn, you may not understand but coming to a GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. is making you a part of the unisonness.

It is a totally self hypnosis, it's the greatest 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. , you get up, you get ready, you remember, you prepare yourself, you come, you bow and through the boring speeches and through the total misunderstanding of all what is going on mostly, mostly you sit, (?) you don't listen and enjoy because mostly you don't understand but you sit, there is a strength behind it and some of you really sit solid, I have seen it. You may look zombie to others, you may look idiots, you may look only to those who have no nervous system to sit. It takes a standard discipline and a standard nervous system to sit solid.

'Kar asanAsan , Asana Position, seat, yogic posture. ditta chao.'

God satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. in a posture and enjoy His creation, even God without posture, could not enjoy, these are the words of 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. , I am not making it from myself, why couldn't 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. say, (?)

Something else 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. could have said anything, but 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. used a very particular word, kar assan ditta chao.

He satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. in a posture and saw the joy of His creation. Now for you to sit is the most boring thing. When a person sits three combination takes place; parasympathetic, sympathetic and active nerve system combine together in the armpit and brings the standard of normal activity to a point of ten. So all auric bodies and physical body correspond it to in harmony then posture is complete. GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru.

Sitting cross legged in a easy posture is called chownkdia, chowkadi. Kadi means jamming four sides, all four sides are jammed, legs and hands are jammed into one unison energy that is called chowkadi.

In arm formal languages we say it chowdankidi, that's our way, chow kadi, kadana means to lock in, chow means four. Two hands and two legs are locked in, in a posture it is called chowkadi and why we sit in chowkadi or in any posture when we sit for 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. and holy thing because at that time we have to cut the circulation to make it less on the lower area and make it higher, available for the higher area. The only process at that time we have is the beat of the heart which become very, very slow and that's why because at that time little blood which can be available can be very useful and the body start using, brain start using, the gray matter start using the serum from the spinal column which is called ShushmanaShushmanaa , Shushmana One of the three major channels (nadis) for subtle energy in the body. It is associated with the central channel of the spine and is the place of neutrality through which the Kundalini travels when awakened. When mantra is vibrated from this place it has the power of soul and consciousness. See also Ida and Pingala. and man start experiencing ecstasy and at that time these are very heavy experiences which you go through sometime, you see the whole universe, you see the entire universe which you may not be competent to see only nine feet.

It is that meditative capacity of human reality through which your body goes, that's why they put the lock of the hands and they put the lock of the legs, they call it chow kadi, chan kadi, these things have meaning, these things have definitions. I tell you, all those people who are nervous breakdown are going to freak out or they got these days Epstein-Barr or whatever they go through, I have nothing to relate with the medical part of it. If a person can sit thirty one minutes in a chowkadi your nervous system automatically come to a normalcy.

In yog shastar, it is said to be, when man is very tense, he should sit cross legged up to his 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. in a warm water for thirty one minutes. He'll become a new person. Body has the power to recuperate, mind has the power of Infinity, spirit has the power of defeating the defeat.

Spirit has the power, you don't have the power. Now let us make it very clear and understandable, if you are powerful, wrong, your spirit, your soul has the power to defeat the defeat, you don't have that power. To built that power, to defeat the defeat, you need your soul, it can't be done by hands.

Baba Deep Singh, the martyr Baba Deep Singh, put a line, asked the Sikhs to cross, made the prayer, my head shall fall in the liberated 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 Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. Ram DasGuru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. house. War took place, his head got chopped up, that place is still there; one Sikh said, "Jatadhar JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. , oh leader, you made the prayer your head will fall in the liberated house of 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. Guru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. Ram DasGuru Ram Das Fourth Guru of the Sikhs. , it is miles away."

Put the hand, left hand out, "Put my head on it," the body got up, enemy ran. It's not a made story, it happened thousand years ago in Mahabharata also.

When the army saw, the Mogul army saw a man standing up with a head on the left hand and double edged sword in the right, mopping up the soldiers, the commander had no way but to blew the bugle to retreat, they ran away and in Lahore explanation was asked, why you ran.

They say, "There was no way, we can't, we can fight with people, we are warriors, we are brave people but we can't fight with dead people."

He said, "What do you mean by dead people?"

He said, "The guy got up with a head, head in his left hand mopping up everybody with right, there was no way to stay there."

The GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. sheeda that is where up to there Baba JiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. could come and threw his head, it fell in the prakarmaPrakarma , Parkarma Literally: A window to life. The marble pathway that surrounds the sacred pool and Golden Temple. , still there is a GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. sheeda and the place where parakram is. Now you call it impossible, I agree with you but I call it possible, because his soul, soul, the sustainer of the five tattva, that quarter ounce called soul, called spirit, sustainer of the five tattva, maintainer of the five tattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities. In total there are 36 tattvas. Each wave of differentiation has its own rules and structure. The final five tattvas are called the gross elements and have the phasic qualities and relationships of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. , master of these five tattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities. In total there are 36 tattvas. Each wave of differentiation has its own rules and structure. The final five tattvas are called the gross elements and have the phasic qualities and relationships of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. ether, earth, air, water, fire in him could control and balance the body to that extent. There is a absolutely scientific explanation for it because his being, his word and his soul, his word, his prayer and his spirit was together and that is the purpose of the spiritual path. Winning and losing is not. He followed what? He followed his fifth master, GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru.

In total there are 36 tattvas. Each wave of differentiation has its own rules and structure. The final five tattvas are called the gross elements and have the phasic qualities and relationships of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. .

That's why God gave us Panch tattva shareer, it gave us five elementary body and put the soul, the spirit part of in in it, and soul communicates with God through mind, soul does not communicate to God through body. So what we do? With body we kado, we lock, interlock the mind through mind we interlock the soul. That is why which mind's mind interlocks the soul is called keertan; the ker, ker is also called hand, kar is also called action. The action of the body which interlocks the mind is called keertan. I am sorry we do with a harmonium, some will do with guitar, some will do with... Singing to put the mind into it interlocks. When the mind is interlocked with the physical action, soul relates to it and once that habit is established, man becomes divine, otherwise man is divided.

Success is okay, succeed but you cannot maintain it. Why? Success has a graduation, graduation has a test, test has a trouble, test and trouble go together and when you pass through the test, you are graduate.

When they went home their ladies said, "Wow 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. must have been victorious, let us celebrate they said."

They said, "No, no, no 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. business, we left him, nothing to do with him, this guy, you know there is nothing to eat, there is nothing to ... what is this going on?"

They said, "All right, now we have this woman bangles, decoration of ours, you wear this, you give us these kirpans, we will go and fight for him."

"Why you are going to fight for him?"

They said, "Well, we are not going to put this blot in our generation that our men were cowards and we supported the cowards," the woman who does not have a superior man, a brave man, a man of word, she is not a woman and any woman who wants to deal with a wimp must understand she is just a MayaMaya The creative power of the Creator that restricts and limits. It creates the sense of limitation that leads us to identify with experience, the ego, and things. Because of this it is often thought of as the illusion that blocks us from the spirit. But, as Guru Nanak (see Sikh Gurus) reminds us, you need not be attached to the productions of maya. Instead they can be used to serve and express the higher consciousness and spirit. Maya is simply Karta Purkh, the doing of the Great Being. Maya takes the ineffable into the realm of the measurable. , when they wanted to go back and fight, they said, "Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, there is something here, did we do something wrong?"

Mata Pago came, he said, "Yes, you have betrayed 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. , this body will fall any day. This body will go but there will be no satisfaction. What is the purpose, what is the achievement this body did? You betrayed your own Lord."

They said, "Wait a minute, wait a minute, we heard."

They returned back, they saw the battle going on, they couldn't reach 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. , they say, now this is the pitch, we are in the center, in between let us stop the army here." They fought well they fought well because by that time their soul and their tattvasTattvas A category of cosmic existence; a stage of reality or being; a "thatness" of differentiated qualities. In total there are 36 tattvas. Each wave of differentiation has its own rules and structure. The final five tattvas are called the gross elements and have the phasic qualities and relationships of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. became one. You cannot fight this earth.

You say, "It's miserable, what is horrible, I can't stand it, it's terrible," because your spirit and your body is not one, your mind doesn't hold the link, you do not hold the bridge, there are million worse than you. Mostly you make yourself miserable because your mind is not your, it's a riding horse which kicks you left and right, you don't ride it, it's no journey, life is no journey to you, life is a hassle. Your life is full of hitch and ditch, you don't have a pitch of life, you can't run it because your soul, your mind and your body, three components are not together in harmony. Two things can make them to harmony, sangat and pangat, they are very important in 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.

Except offering the three of it, the soul, mind and body, in sacrifice, Hazrat Abraham was asked, "What is dearest to you?"

He said, "My son."

He said, "Sacrifice in the name of God."

You know the lamb story, it's not something I have to tell you. With his open eyes he could not put the knife on the neck of his own son for sacrifice and today, if your son cries you leave the GurdwaraGurdwara Literally the door of the Guru; traditional place where Sikh worship services are held. .

I have seen many, many people who pretend to be very religious, you talk about their children, forget about and everyday they do ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. .

'Jinna mayna behna biwiya.'

Those graceful women, wives and daughters, who get their children cut piece by piece and garland it around their neck, whose children were received on the lances in their presence, they never uttered a word of sigh for their deed, oh Khalsa say Wahe Wahe Guru , Whaa-hay Guroo A mantra of ecstasy and dwelling in God.

You pretend you are the only property holder of that soul.

Today this morning I was doing the mail and I was asked somebody I gave a name and the word come Ratan, Ratan means that green stone what you call that emerald, emerald is called ratan and what was the name Niranjan, shabadShabad , Shabd Sound, especially subtle sound or sound imbued with consciousness.

Please see for more information. is a name, NamNaam , Nam The manifested identity of the essence. The word derives from Naa-ay-ma , which means "that which is not, now is born."

Somebody was telling me, "Sir, she is doing this to you, doing this to you again and again."

I said, "Wait, she is laying her own grave, lying in it but I am not going to put the dust over it."

"Why not?"

I said, "That is not my capacity, that is not my reality, may be a last minute when the messiah will come, I like this child of mine to feel easy, jump out of the grave and say hallelujah or 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. When used as a greeting it means "I greet and salute that reality and truth which is your soul."

That's why 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. is essential. You think religious is to show off. Somebody told me yesterday (?) 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. promised me something, which I never and he said something which I never. I particularly know what it is because this stone head cannot understand what I say but my feeling is this stone head doesn't know what I say but once this stone head understand what I say, it is going to be forever, I am waiting for that day. It's miserable to deal with the stone head, it's a solid thing, nothing goes through it, nothing goes out of it, it's all solid one bundle, but God once when it is engraved you know, what a precious stone it will be? I can wait because,

'Tittvar na jogi janey, ruth ma na koi. Jaha karta srishti ko saje apeay janey soi.'

One who created this universe He only knows, neither the 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. knows, nor the weatherman knows. Most of the time the weatherman say this is going to be this, this is going to be this, this is going to be this and sometime it is totally opposite but he predicted what it is. There is a time and the master of the time is God, not the man. Master of the miracle is a GuruGuru That which takes us from ignorance to knowledge; from darkness, gu, to light, ru. It can be a person, a teaching, or in its most subtle form - the Word. , not the man.

'Dhan Dhan Ram Das 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. , Jinn siriya tiney savariya, puri hui karamat, aap sarjan harey tariya.'

We should be grateful to those who are our enemies, they have taught us to fight, we should pay homage to misery, that has told us to meditate. Misery and meditate, both start with M. Is that the lie of a person you like, who has control on everything? All that person is to sit in a bed and will die of bedsores, you want to do that?

Somebody said that day to me, "Sir, you are being tested."

I said, "Lucky, lucky, blessed, blessed is me who is worth being tested, think of those millions who have never been tested, imagine those, imagine those who were tested and they ran away and then think of those who are tested who ran away, came back and they have become part of ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. ,

'Char sahibzade, panj piarey...'

That's a part of your ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. , everyday you can't complete the congregation of the sangat without uttering homage and paying homage to those, they earn homage here not in the body, you don't earn homage being in the body, what is the misery, how corrupt one can be. They reached a everlasting state where homage is being paid.

"Jaahaa(n) jahaa(n) khalsa jiJi Soul; used as an endearment or sign of respect. sahib

Taahaa(n) taahaa(n) rachia ria-et"

Wherever there is a Khalsa, there shall be protection and there shall be concession of the God and think of those for whom these words do not fit in, think of those women, imagine sitting in a captivity, children brought, two year, one year old children brought in their presence, cut limb by limb and they were asked to sew the garland of the limbs and put around their neck and still do the hard work which they were asked to. Their year child was plunged into the air and received on the lance and the lady was asked to hold the lance for the rest of the time. That character you think is possible? Yes it is impossible to see, it is impossible to feel, it is impossible to explain but it was possible, it's a part of our ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. and when you become insecure, what do you think you are doing. I am the man who does that ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. , you think I am that bogus that ArdasArdas Prayer; the formal group prayer of the Sikhs. doesn't come from my heart? I don't understand it? And when you lay your insecurity on me what do I feel?

My only problem is, you play the game and I ask you not to because you can be lost in the game. My education is not I am not interested in myself I am interested that you should be interested in yourself. If you respect yourself, you love yourself, you know yourself, then you shall not play game, you are playing game, you are becoming an expert in playing games and one day you will have no time and but your game and that is the understanding I am trying to relate to. I am not relating to you that I am your teacher, you should obey me, I am nothing. I am just paying the debt to my teacher who out of mercy of God and blessing of the grace of 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. taught me certain things and I am sharing. I don't want you to obey, I don't want you to talk to me, I don't want you to see at me, rather I will be very glad when you see at me you call me a name, abuse me, you have done it so many times, I am very grateful to those. I am very happy, those who abuse me, really, it tests my grace, it tests my 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. , it tests my patience. When you make a mockery of me, 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. said that, I know it how you feel about it, that, that time I pray so body will not say in the coming generation you said that too, because my intension is very honest. I am very straightforwardly honest, I just wanted this to happen. I wanted every woman to be the grace of God.

I am being asked question, why I have to wear this, why I have to do this, arey be naked, be in your birth suit, who wants you to wear anything? You don't wear something for me and if you want to wear something to look sexy, go ahead. You'll get what you want.

It was my mother's day, I asked you, I invited you, I asked you to come most gracefully dressed. I didn't ask to wear what because that was the best homage I could pay to my own mother that everybody who is graceful comes and participate in that prayer. That was my feeling, that was my belief and that was my inner being. That's why I didn't do it here, I did it at the darbar-e Khalsa because here you come in the morning for your 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. dress you call it now, that is a very special invitation. I didn't want anybody to come in their 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. dress. I wanted somebody to come with a basic mental meditative offering of their grace to participate because we were worshiping a mother principle, it was not a question of a woman, it was not a question of my mother, it was a question of mother in principle and I wanted to pay the homage that mother you kept me nine months, you turned your blood into milk and raised me, you gave me the value of life, you guided me in life and today you are not with me physically, just once body is gone, everything else is intact.

What judgment is this? Out of ten if it is nine are with you, what you bother about? There are ten bodiesTen Bodies We are all spiritual beings having a human experience. In order to have this experience the spirit takes on 10 bodies or vehicles. They are the Soul Body, the three Mental Bodies (Negative, Positive, and Neutral Minds), the Physical Body, Pranic Body, Arcline Body, Auric Body, Subtle Body, and Radiant Body. Each body has its own quality, function, and realm of action. . One physical body is gone, what it matters but one day I am alive or dead, one woman will become a woman of steel and she will show the mankind that what a woman is and what a grace is, that's all I am chasing a dream. I never had a trouble. Moment I started grace of God women of America, since that day to this day, I am never one day without trouble, they accuse me of woman, they accuse me of everything, they are doing everything in the planet they can do because they cannot stand a man sit down and say woman has a place of grace, period. I can tell you bottom line of it because this country and the economy of this country need six million prostitutes a year and they need forty percent divorces and broken homes. Do you understand how much money you spend on this, what they call those homes where children are given, foster homes? If all the money spend on the foster homes is given to the parents to educate them how to be parents and counsel them how to be parents, we will never need foster homes because you need a divorce, house get broken, new house is bought, one real estate is sold, other is gone, new refrigerator come, old is sold, got this whole hanky-panky, new curtains, new this, new that, new luggage, new husband, same problems. The man is real when he really moves on his own but we cannot move on and on, we need a challenge, that's why people here, people there, that's why they say,

'Jedethe paideal aurbhi paedy.'

Those who are bad in the village are bad in the capital. You think if you go to New Jersey or you go to...

Side B

... New York, you will become different? If you have to become different, you have to become now and here. Going away, going away, go away from your neurosis, you will never regret it, don't go away from places. I don't want to deal with people whom I don't like, if you don't like people deal with them, so you understand what do you don't like and how strong you can be to do not like and still like what you don't like, it's easy to don't like, it's difficult to learn what you don't like and how you can like what you don't like and what is what makes you to don't like and what is there which makes you don't like and you say it. Perhaps somebody doesn't want to hear that you don't like anything. God wants to hear it, you like everything because if you don't like everything, you do not like the part of God. I am not a coward, I am a fighter. I am a Sikh of 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. but I don't strike first, I am humble like a cane but I will lease my hand, I takeaway the skin. Never strike first but when you strike, it must not need the second, otherwise you are failed. Don't hit but if you hit no second hit is needed.

When I played my football you call rugby, when I kicked I kicked. Once a goalkeeper tried to hold that ball which I kicked, with the ball and himself he went into the net, that was the kick, I loved it. Otherwise what is the kick, there is no need. Don't have a score; when you score there should be nothing left to reach score again, don't live, if you live see that you live and you live to the loftiness, the God tell you, what to do.

'Khudi ko kar buland itna, ki har taqdeer se pehle, khuda bandey se yu puche bataa teri razaa kya hai.'

Make yourself so high and lofty the God comes and say oh man, what do you want?

Exactly it will happen, like father tells the child, oh my son, what do you want, I will give you what you want. It can happen on the earth, it can happen in the heavens. That's the power and that can come only when you walk on the path of 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. in and out. You get married, you do not know what marriage is, you become mother you do not know what a mother is, you become a wife you do not know what wife is, you do why and if all the time. You know what a wife is, why and if; why, darling we'll go out, why; I take you out, I give you a good time. If you do something more, five, ten times this man tolerates because men do not have a very strong nervous system, do you know that. Men have sixteen time less patience than a woman, because God gave this extra patience to a woman because to honor the mother principle, she has to get conceive, she has to get pregnant, she has to deliver, she has to have a very strong nervous system, men doesn't have that all that stuff. Man is basically impotent until provoked, that's the faculty of a man.

So when you go on doing this number, why and if, why and if he forgets about you, he doesn't even care you exist. Same you he loved, same you who dated, same you he dated so much he wanted to be united, you put the pit of the date into the very center of his teeth, he breaks and all he has is sore gums and a broken tooth with a naked nerve. Can you imagine that and every date has a pit. If you can keep the pit out and just give him the date, with that sugar, that sweetness, he will not even remember what he is doing.

Once somebody asked me, "What is wrong with me?"

I said, "Nothing, you put me on the spot."

"I don't understand what do you mean by it."

I said, "You tear up my cloths and make me naked, I don't like to be naked, I am Virgo, Virgos don't like to be naked. It is against my genes, against my nature."

"Oh, I am just asking a question."

I said, "Just I am giving an answer."

We are not debating life, life is to communicate. You should ask something which others can hear and answer you, you should say something which should encourage people. Some people do ask me, "Sir, you are very lenient," I am, that's what I did my Ph D on, poke, provoke, confront and uplift and uplifting is done with love, not with hatred. With hatred you want to destroy another person. If you love somebody, you want to uplift, you want to make them great people. It is that one great meditating woman, it is that one great meditating man, for which all the sins of the earth are tolerated, therefore don't worry but don't hurry either, walk, live and speak nobly and that is what sangat teaches you, that is what pangat teaches you.

When rich and poor sit together and break the bread, they get the blessing. When rich and poor sit together and live, they get the grace and it's the blessing and it's the grace which give you liberty from 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. and give you the grace, the reward, the ultimate what is called 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.

If you ask me betrayal won't happen, I don't agree with you. If you say nobody will lie to you, doesn't matter. If you say people will not be treacherous to you, forget it.

That's why when you say I don't want to be religious, you know what I am saying, I don't want to be real. Phony (?) you know, if you are phony then you go through the person to person, place to place, thing to thing and if you say, I am the only religious, you do not know what you are talking.

I hope if my eighteen years speaking with you has not worked yet in, perhaps today you will think about it and you will change something you have to change and you will be what you ought to be and just remember the last sentence, I am not interested how wrong I am, I am interested how soon right I can be.

I am not interested how wrong I am, I am interested how soon right I can be, that exactly mean Cherdi Kala that literally means it.

I don't care how time and space is spinning me through, all I am interested is how I can spin back to ride the time again, you like that, that's better. I am not willing to carry the horse on my shoulders, I am willing to ride the horse, is that clear, is that understandable?

'Jab aab ki avadh nidhan baney, ath hi ran me tab juj maroo.'

When my end come, let me be a fighting warrior in the middle of the battle and what is this battle? This is the battle of this practical earth where grace is challenged by disgrace every time. There is a fight on this earth have and have not, those who have grace will challenge by the disgraceful ones. Einstein (?) you what was that saying you read that, I send it specially to be written on the peace prayer day what it said, that mediocre, that Einstein saying...

Ha, yeah come say it, at least one remembers it, ha, say it, say it.

Student: Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre mind.

YB: Let everybody repeat, they didn't follow you.

Student: Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre mind.

YB: So when you give a violent opposition you confirm your mediocre mind, don't you? When you talk aggressively all you say is that you have no security. When you give in, you give in to get out, that's the act of a coward and with what mouth, with what tongue you speak those words, with what tongue you speak the word of the Khalsa song, when things are down and darkest.

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

YB: What is wrong with that, how many times you have to repeat it to remember it? That is what you should teach your children, that is what should inspire your husband to be, that is what your wife should be, that is what your love should be, when things are down and darkest, they should walk tallest and that is what it is.

With these words, with prayers, with graces, with blessing, I call on 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. to give us the day that we could walk through this darkest period of our life tallest as we could be and then we will say,

'Kirka kal teri bhayi jeet meri.'

O Lord God, thy blessing bestowed on thee this victory, victory belong to thee and then we will say,
