People don't have any direction. There is no such thing anymore institution of marriage, commitment, grace. All those facets we talk about I have realized, after the Europe trip, I found out that people are almost living there because they cannot die. It's totally was something to look into deeply and understand that, what has gone wrong. But we don't want that to happen to America, you must understand that. Now what happened is, when people came here, they have certain imagination, so there was a bill of rights and there was a constitution and there was inspiration, this is what America is going to be, but I tell you that's all on a paper. It's all on a paper; this country is so freaked out, what it says and what it lives. In Missouri State, last year they took out of the statue, the bill where you could eliminate a Mormon and it was legal. These are the exact wording. So you find somebody is a Mormon and you kill, according to the Missouri law, it is no offence. Can you believe that? But that's the truth. So my dear friends, there are two Americas, there is no one America. One is U.S, that is us, all those who believe in those values, those believe in God, those trust in God, the slogan of America, in God we trust. We don't trust in God, we trust in bombs, we trust in guns. We are creating this filthiest weapon, which will eliminate the humanity and keep the buildings and material intact. There is no such thing. Now there are two Americas, one America is what we promised America shall be, the one America is one America is today. And there is a miles long difference between these two Americas. So don't be mistaken, you have a value to honor and that is let us, make America what we promised America should be. If you feel you are American, then this is a obligation on you, let us make America what we feel America should be and what we promised and what we said America is, not what we are doing to America. America has done nothing wrong to us and we have done terrible things to America. Do you understand what I am saying? And we must stop it. Enough is enough. Therefore it is obligatory situation that we as human beings who have decided to live in the country called United States of America must come out to sacrifice so that our generations can live. The deal is very simple folks, deal is very simple. If we do not sacrifice today, we will have no tomorrow. And laws and governments cannot make a nation. What we as Americans are trying to do is that our government should secure peace for us. Government cannot represent the spirit of the people; write down these words of mine. Government cannot represent the spirit of the people but government shall not be, shall, I am using a very positive English word, government shall not be in a position to deny the spirit of the people. So it is the people of America who has the responsibility to build America. So what you are trying to do is, you are getting into that rut, that politician should work for you. What you do, you select the, elect the politicians and you forget about them. If you have elected them as your representative, then you have the obligation to see that they do represent you and not themselves. What today I am talking about the subject is, it's a very simple subject, 'The duality of the human growth' and this is the ladies, subject for you which you must patiently hear, you will be very upset and the words are so straightforward that you will not like to have this lecture. But you know I have to do my job, thankless job it maybe, but I have to do it and I am going to tell you today very harsh things. Today you are not going to like me; I know that, I came prepared for it. But what should I do, I have to tell you what I have to tell you. Okay. There is no such thing; you have to write down every word, almost if you can though the tapes will be there. There is no such thing, destiny of the child. It's going to freak you out, because all the time you have been brainwashed. People think the eastern teachers are brainwashing people. Actually that's not true, you are already brainwashed, now we are trying to just make a little dent in that brainwashing. You have been told for centuries that everybody gets born with destiny. Right? But I am telling you today, after birth there is no such thing as destiny. Destiny means you are born. Sometime you are born cripple, sometime you have three eyes, sometimes you have none, sometime you have four hands sometime you have one hand. Sometime you are this; sometime you are born eight pounds, sometime you are six pound. Sometimes you bother your mothers, you does this caesarian, sometime you come out clean. Sometime you come unwanted, sometime you come wanted. That is all is up to what is called is destiny. After birth, when you breathe for the first time, there is no such thing as destiny. After that is 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. . Every child is born as a 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.

But also every child is born to 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.

One is 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.

Now two forces are working, one is the parents. Now parent drinks, mama drinks, papa drinks, both say they are not alcoholic. All right if you are not alcoholic, miss a drink. Both can't miss a drink. But they tell the child, drinking is no good. I have seen a mother, who was chain smoking and telling to me, "I am a chain smoker, but I don't want my daughter to smoke."

I said, "How come, its impossible."

If you don't want your daughter not to, if you want daughter not to smoke, you stop smoking right now. What happens is and that is what happens. It is the insecure mother and it is the ignorant mother. It is the insecure mother and is the ignorant mother, which spoils the future of her own child. This is called the snakebite in the innocence of childhood. A child who has a very knowledgeable wise person as a mother and woman is very secure shall not suffer the act 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.

Because that child will have the example and exemplary the living of 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. . DharmaDharma A path of righteous living.

It is action without reaction or karma. doesn't come from God, God doesn't speak, what, you say God spoke clouds burst (?) you know, (?) God spoke to us; it speaks to us everyday here these days. That's all God speaks to us for. But there is 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. inside that is God in us. Somebody once asked me, "Where is the God?"

I said, "Right in you. Inspite of you don't like it, it does talk to you, you don't listen to it, it does talk to you."

God is not outside; God is right in of every individual, every being. But the child, the man of tomorrow, man of tomorrow is the product of the mother. It is the product of the mother and it is the product of the father. They are two different words. Product of the mother is the product of the?

Students: Father.

YB: If the mother fails, the father takes over; still there is sixty percent chance. Not hundred percent. And when child is becoming at the age of five years of the father, three years of the mother, it comes to eight then every mother and every father split, mentally on each child, you know what is that split? Now try to understand, and look at your own cases and you will find such a accurate thing. Father says, "I brought this child into the earth, into the earth, right? So this child must obey my values. And the mother says, I gave birth to this child, it must follow my values. When the child becomes eight years, mother and father play the game, which is called, the control of the psyche. Whose intuition the child should go, you understand? And that ruins about eighty percent of the children. For example, there was a nine-year-old child and the father wanted to give him little wine, little. The mother said, "You can't do it."

He said, "Why, you know, I drink everyday, you live with me."

She said, "That's my tragedy. I won't let my children have a drink."

There was a big fight. She threw away the glass, she didn't let the child drink that day, but after a weekend, father pretended he is going on fishing. So he took his son and that day he made him drink that the child got so drunk that he ended up in hospital. You must follow parents, write down, you must follow parents, but parents is not those two people, parents is a institution with laws and bylaws. Father is a institution with laws and bylaws, mother is a institution with laws and bylaws and those two individuals are exactly bound by those laws and bylaws and if they don't follow, if they don't follow and fulfill those laws and bylaws, they are not the institution which must be worshipped, which must be followed and which must be adhered to. And child is an institution governed by laws and by laws. And every child, which has to progress must follow the law. What is the law of the child, can anybody tell me?

Student: (------)

YB: Huh? No. The law of the child is listen and learn. After twenty-one, what is the law of the adult? Work and experience, write down. What is the law of the mature person, the wise man, the old man?

Student: (------)

YB: Huh? Share the wisdom. No old person shall be respected if doesn't have enough wisdom which he and she can share. The value of a old person is, Sanyasa and Baanprasth. Sanyasa is, attach with the world, but attach with the word in the, detach with the world but attach in the world in the sense all my life what I have learnt and experienced I must share. You see the older people who tell good stories to the little ones are loved very much. Why our American old people are sitting in Miami Beach? In those, huh, those chairs, beach chairs, lonely and they have to find other older people live by themselves, waiting for death. You know what is the biggest curse of human life? That you wait for death and it doesn't come to you. And after sixty-five years, nobody has children, nobody has home and I went to their house here. Beautiful home, very beautiful, lot of land, God is wonderful, everything. And I asked them, "Why do you want to sell this most beautiful thing?"

"O our children are gone."

"Where?"

"They are gone, they are gone."

Why they are gone? Nobody wants to ask this question. Children never go away. The parents who send their children away, their children never go away. We have experimented in 3HO the distance therapy. When the child is little, send him to a training school. Let him come in the holidays, he will long to come. Love him and tell him one thing, my dear child, you are born out of me but you are born to learn and your real parents is the learning institution. My dear child, your mother is the mother universe and your father is the heavenly divinity and the dignity. It is the duty of the parents to give parents to the child, the real parents. You are fact, you are temporary, you are momentary, you are the channel, you have to go away, the child has to live without you and make him strong enough that without you it can always feel you within him. As a child was within you, he must feel the parents within him. And this is called the balance, this is called the equilibrium, without that there is no child complete. Aah, you don't know a thing; two hundred and fifty million people of United States of America do not know this thing at all basically. Everything is balanced, when the child is in you, when he is out of you, you should be in him or in her. There is no distance. The time and space will never upset you. You are just, you are just like fools, run after the child, my child, my child, my child. He gets so sore, he will get so sore of this my child, my child, my child, when he can run, he just runs away. He said, "No, no, no, no, I am nobody's, I am nobody's."

This is what is happening in United States. And in Europe, nobody runs away because nobody knows how to run away. They have gone much vegetable. Here at least your children run away, there they do not know what to do. I was in France; everybody eats French bread and drinks. That's how they live. At least here you drink sometime. There they drink all the time. It's painful. Its right to drink, I am not against it. But you have no right living, then what you should do, live in the pain, when there is a pain, you take aspirin, right? Instead of aspirin, they drink. If you do not find life as life is, you are not living. You are dragging. And when you are dragging, along with you, your children are dragging too. Finally one drag the other and it is called not the cozy home, it is called dragging workshop. Each one drags the other one. And that is not my dear, life. Remember what is a life? What is a life? Come on, answer it. Life is lie ___ if, write down the word, life. Lie ___ if. That is lie-if. If you don't find the if, it's a lie. If you will not find the truth, which is the polarity of the life, life will be nothing but a lie. Live it. Your fore fathers lived it, you live it, your children and grand children will live it, what the use is? Now what is the beauty of the child? What is the beauty of the child? Child must be a child who must rise to live truth. Look, I want to give you always one example and I love it. Who was Mary? Huh.

Student: She was a very (?).

YB: Who was her husband?

Students: Joseph.

YB: Nobody knows. Oh you can say it? I won't say it. If you really have the respect for Jesus Christ, you won't say her husband was... because Jesus says, when she came and talked to him, she said, "You are no mother of mine. I belong to my father."

You are phony Christians, but I have read it really what it is. That Jessu, that is Jesus' real name, which they never tell you. Jessu was his real name, when Jessu, Mary and Joseph went away, you know that story, they took away from Nazareth and Mary, and Jessu asked Mary that he is my father and at that time Mary, which is called Mariam, her divine name is Mariam, it is your English name is Mary, Mariam told Jessu that your father lives in heaven and this Jessu knew when He wanted to do when He was so little and in the entire life of that one individual, that heavenly father was His father. So what I am trying to say is, whatever mother once puts in the head of the child, that remains alive come what may. Now today, that Mariam, Mary, she never graduated in university of Nazareth, was she graduate, was she doctorate? She did her PhD, huh? She was a beautiful actress or dancer or Monroe whatever you want to want to call it, whatever values you have here. She was in charge of a casino and somewhere, Las Vegas? What was Mary? Huh?

Student: Mother.

YB: A mother, a real mother, a very, very divine mother who could create her son to be really a Christ. Who is pure? What is the most pure thing in the world, come on, I will give you one hour and if you give me the correct reply, what is the most pure thing in the world?

Student: (------)

YB: If you want to win the orange, you got to give me the correct answer.

Student: (------)

YB: There was a one man, he grew up, became adult, fell in love with a prostitute, mother was old, very beautiful, very rich and she was, the prostitute was getting all the money and he was securing that money to mother. One day when he went, the evening to pass his evening with the prostitute, she just played a big drama, very negative energy and she said, "I don't love you, you don't love me, let us get over with," and he, he was totally brainwashed, an idiot and he said, "Look, all I want you and nothing else."

She says, "Is that true, will you prove it?"

He said, "Yes."

He said, "On a silver plate I want the hot heart of your mother."

Because she thought if mother will be dead, all the money will be mine and that old lady just give little by little and he doesn't care for that. So this guy blinded with lust, because lust and anger blinds you. Lust blinds you, anger limits you. This is how it is. Lust blind you, anger limits you. Greed makes you absolutely non-plussed. You can't speak. Ego, ego limits you beyond your capacity, you become so little, if anything make you little, it's the ego. So anyway he ran and went, took a knife and saw his sleeping mother in peace, stab her, open her chest, cut down her heart, put it and ran back. He wanted to do it fast; he was very, very American, do quick. On half of the way, he fell. So he gathered his plate and went to pick the heart. The heart spoke, "My son, are you not hurt?"

He realized it was not a mother of today who forces her father to take the son to get him de program so that they give him belladonna injection and there comes the son after the de program just like a vegetable. Some will tell him stand up, stand up, sit down, sit down and this is American mother, I am not discussing her, I am discussing a mother, the most purest thing in the world is the heart of the mother, the heart 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. , the center of the mother, it's the most purest thing in the world, it can move God. It can move universe. It can cause an effect beyond any limitation. It's the power of infinity ever given to any finite, that's the heart of the mother. There are certain things, which can be considered the most superior things. Prayer of the mother, prayer of the beloved, I wish it should be wife but it is not there, so scripture I can't alter. Prayer of the mother, prayer of the beloved, prayer of the self and prayer of the spiritual teacher, these are four prayers, which can alter and change the destiny. So what I am trying to reach to you is, parents is a institution. Because the center of the word God is O, G-O-D, organization, what is organization, laws and bylaws. What is vibration? Something, which moves up and down, is it right or wrong? Frequency. Continuous frequency is called, what it's called?

Student: Vibration.

YB: Vibration. So in our life, in our life we are supposed to learn from parents, but after eight years our parents change. Mother universe becomes the mother, the infinity becomes the father. Purukha and Prakurti. Every human child is taken over by the change of institutions after the completion of the age, age, transactory period of three, that's called age, eleven, that's why the relevant cycle of intelligence is eleven years. Relevance cycle 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. is seven years; relevance cycle of life is eighteen years. Your temperament, your nature, your desire, your feelings, your whole thing changes after every eighteen years. Your scale of intelligence changes after every eleven years, 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. changes after every?

Students: Seven years.

YB: Seven years. When rishiRishi Enlightened being; Yogi. Vyasa was asked, "What destroys the generation?" There was a question. What?

Student: Destroys the generation.

YB: And the answer was non-righteous woman and unrighteous mother. Everything goes wrong can be tolerated, folks, when mother goes wrong, that is the end of it. And BhaiBhai Brother. gurudas says it very beautiful.

'Vaar jo kahyen khethiyan,'

It's a couplet, listen to it and I will translate it for you.

"Vaar jo kahyen khethiyan, kaun rakhwaara, Jey maa puththey vish dey, kya karey vichaara"

If the fence, if the fence start eating the fields and if mother gives the poison to the child, what anybody can do. Jey maa puththey vish dey, if mother poisons the child, the son, what anybody else can do. She has millions of ways because why? There is a fundamental international infinite trust, mother is kind, mother is righteous and mother is right. Now this is international, infinite institution. If she is not, once a woman told 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. , I am a mother."

I said, "My dear, you are not even a woman, how can you be a mother, you are actually at your present state is, you are alcoholic. That's what you are. You are neither a woman, nor you are a wife, nor you are a mother. You have lost every status. You have gained a new status, you are alcoholic. I say surprised, nine O' clock in the morning you start drinking."

I won't mention you the place. I went to certain parents to meet on my tour in a country thousand miles away and they were in a very good position and they told me I must come because I have saved their children from drug. I have saved their children and they are very grateful to me. Now lot of parents are not grateful to me because one mother met me in New York and she 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. , if I will be given a right to kill somebody, I will kill you right now."

And I said, "Why?"

And she said, "My God, you have done me a horrible thing."

I said, "What?"

She said, "In the past, when my children used to freak out and become very miserable, they used to call me for help and I used to help them and it looked very great to me. But unfortunately you have given them now so much dignity and now they don't do any such thing wrong that need my help and I feel misery. Look at it."

I said, "Killing your children dignity and taking away from doing wrong, if for that you mean to kill me, lady, government or people may not give you the power, I allow you. Go ahead, do it."

So lot of people don't like me anymore. But anyway I went to their home at about eleven O' clock. O we were so much well received, warm, lunch was fantastic. Then we were talking, we were to leave six O' clock. But at four O' clock, everybody started missing out of that main room. Five O' clock, they were different people altogether. So everybody went in, you understand what I am saying? At five O' clock I told my secretary, I said, ""My dear, let us run."

She said, "What is going on?"

I said, "It is the change of time, first they were people now they are peepas. Peepas. Peepas."

She said, "What is peepas?"

I said, "People can become peepa. Peepa is Indian word, peepa is a tin. You know, in which you put oil and you put lot of things, what you call it?

Students: Jar, candles.

YB: No, the big one. The one in which we get honey. We call it peepa. So she said, "What peepa?"

I said, "These peepas are now filled with booze and lot of things are going to ooze and we are not going to like to hear, therefore we should clear."

(Student's laughter)

So folks we picked up and ran, there was nothing to stay. Change is must. If the change is not right and if every child is supposed to follow the religion of the parents, then Jesus Christ should have been a Jew and Jew and nothing but Jew. But he couldn't be. If change is absolutely wrong, then 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. should have been a good businessman because his parents were business people. He was asked, "Do a great business. Take this money, this couple rupees. Go and do the right good business, show me you are a good son."

He went, took the money, there were hungry sadhus, he fed them, came back home.

"O I did a great business."

"What business?"

He said, "There were hungry human beings, I fed them very nicely and they were very happy and they were appreciating."

Father slapped him. "Lost the money?"

He said, "No, I have gained the heavens. O father I have done a business, I have bought the heavens very cheap."

But father was blind, couldn't see it. Couldn't see it. One day I was telling my staff, I said, "Today you people bugged me. Sometime you become emotional and you make me a target because I am the only one available and you totally grind me to hell and when I will be gone, you will not be sorrow for anything, there will be no sorrow in your heart, but one sorrow you will always have, that you couldn't respect me. I was so near to you, you couldn't know me. I moved among you, you didn't hear me, I talked to you a lot, you close your ears. I told you what God is, you even didn't recognize me as a man. But all I say is, one thing I know, when I will be gone you will love to hear me. You will love to feel me; you will love to be with me. You will respect those places where I satSat Existence; what is; the subtle essence of Infinity itself. ; you will respect those papers which I wrote. You will respect those places which I touched. You will do everything in your power and your generations, it is destined that your born shall rule this earth. It is destined. But you won't find me among you physically. Why to bug me? I never wanted to come to America. I never come here to enjoy it and I am not enjoying it anyway. Your dollars are no comfort to me and your rotten wall-to-wall carpets which are non-woolen and which spoils the electro magnetic field of every man and make him idiot is no charm to me. I can't open the door of a car. It shocks me, every time it hurts me, I am going crazy but I am just doing my job. And God, there is no mercy in your heart and I am not upset. You have been trained to be unmerciful and unkind. Number first quality of human being is kind. We should be kind because we are mankind. The only qualification we must learn here is to be kind. And I say to them sometimes, if you are not kind to me, where you can learn it, where you can practice it. We have one chance only to prove ourself to be kind. And God out of His grace has given us this chance. Once somebody 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. , please tell me what to do?"

I said, "I am the last person to talk to you because tomorrow you are going to blame me, I said it, why should I say it? You ask me question, I gave you answer, you choose whether you like the answer or not. If you like it, adapt it, do it, if not forget it."

Because 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. has taught me one thing. Keep four doors and keep them open. And that's what I follow. My house shall always be open house and if my house shall not be open house, it shall not be my house. And that is the universal freedom which we practice. We are going to the house 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. this time. I was just getting a letter, we are going to Hemkund, the highest place in the universe built by the Sikhs in the heart of Himalaya and thousands of human beings carried those heavy iron girders which are impossible to go there on their shoulders just facing death sacrificing their comfort, but they built this place. And all those who is going to India, first thing we are going to go and get to go to that place. It's a hard eight days journey, it's a challenge.

At that place to exist is impossible, he not only existed, he found and leaned in God. That's the place we are going to visit. And then, you will visit the Hari mandir, the temple of God. That beautiful place in the center of the pool of nectar and surprisingly you will be surprised to see at that one very cozy, comfortable temple, it has four doors. Four doors. You can enter any way. You can get out any way. My doctor, dentist, he is a (?). He always tell me...

Side B

And in your temple, only restrictive, qualified people can enter in certain centuries and certain (?). Though we joke each other, but in that joke there is a very painful direct truth. Some people asked me, "Why we live like that?"

We live like that to prove only one thing to us; it's a message to us. We are saints and we are soldiers. We are saints to begin with but when our saint hood is in danger and jeopardized, then we are soldiers to protect that sainthood. Because law of the universe is, if you are a saint, you must live as a saint and you must die as a saint. A person who cannot die as a saint has not lived as a saint. There is no such thing as later day, it is always today. A Christian who has not experienced the Christ 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. is just as phony as phony is. A Muslim who has not practiced humility to the extent that he sees God in everything has never learnt to be a Muslim, a Buddhist who does not have BuddhiBuddhi This is the first, most etheric manifestation of the Universal Mind from which all other areas of mind are derived.

That is why, 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. , the tenth master, decidedly decided where as our people shall live as saints but they shall also die as saints. Living as saint and dying, as a human being is it real? The most non-real. It's most non-real. When somebody died and somebody asked, "Who is dead?"

He said, "The governor is dead."

And the man who asked the question, he said, "He was governor?"

He said, "Yeah, he was governor."

He said, "O God, he was not a human being, governor."

No human being died, governor died, isn't a shame? Governor of what? A certain territory, five hundred miles long, six hundred miles this way, thirty thousand miles this way, thirty thousand. Who is dead? President of America is dead. President of America. Just America. A land, a earth, inhabited by people. But no, human being is not dead, and when a human being is not dead, God doesn't receive anybody but a human being. Because God created a human being, God creates the creature, God receives the creatures. Not the governors, not the president, not the members of parliament, not the congressmen, not the senators, not the lawyers, not the attorneys, not the doctors, not at all. Not the yogisYogi 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. , not the swamisSwami Master. , not the prophets. God has no in which has no out and God's out and in is alike. Because God is one, His oneness is infinite so whatever God creates, that God receives, that is the law of God. You can add to yourself every plus and all that plus will be nothing but hindrance for you to go in. You put around you many plusses. If the path is nine inches, you cant go there as sixteen feet, folks, you will be stuck. But only six inches can go in. Nothing, this is all your 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. , I am governor, I am president, I am this, I am that, idiots, you are a man of earth and you will be bound by earth and the purpose of a human being is to release oneself from this earth so that one can got to heavens. That's why they say, heavens are above, earth is here, whosoever is bound to the earth shall remain bound to the earth and remain bound to earth in infinity and you shall be nothing, your destiny is decided, there is no hell for you, there is no heaven for you, all for you is ghost, ghost, ghost and ghost. That's why when we do the tantra at the summer solstice time; the entire land is filled with souls begging to hear your chants. It is amazing, there were six hundred people one day chanting and we were in ecstasy and there was so much fight above us, those souls were trying to come deeper and deeper, the magnetic field wanted to go over and over and in that hassle, I couldn't explain, I wish you should all have those eyes and you should have watched what was going on. And they were ancestors of you who are hung in this earth bound circuit for thousand, hundred thousand million and zillion years seeking liberation. It was a amazing sight to see, it was a wonder of God. That is why this time when we wanted, let God speak to us, we heard a huge thunder. God told us for mercy not because we were very wonderful human beings, because those thousand and hundred thousand souls got relieved and released. That's called yagna, that's what we do. People do not understand summer solstice, these Americans do not understand at all. That is the time when the sun energy and the earth magnetic field are at the peak. Aah, that is the most wonderful combination, to meditate, recite and chant. And in the openness, in the wilderness of the Mother Nature, we call on the heavenly father. It was times from time immemorial the man has been doing this practice. Jesus Christ as per His own record, known to the church was born on twenty-fifth of August, but because there was white snow holidays of the Romans, His birthday got shifted, twenty-fifth remained but August became December. And poor tree, Christmas tree, in the white of that snow, that is the only green life which gives you the message that after this deep summer, winter is on its way, which is the poor thing is cut every year now for just giving the human the message. I never forget that scene. I was going to Pomona to teach, I saw a truckload of little tiny, pretty Christmas trees and it shook my heart and I said this verse. "Christmas tree said to God, why you named me so, every year they cut me down they do not let me grow."

Ritual was, wherever the Christmas tree is, people, parents grow them, grow them around as a sign of symbol of life because it is in the form of a cone, cone is the form of infinite energy. So it is good to grow this tree, there is nothing against it. And the parents will come down, decorate it, put lights around it, put food underneath so that children can go around and play and enjoy the arrival of the summer. The summer hereafter in two, three months, the warm weather is going to come. All right, now you can't go out, so tree has to come in. Can you understand your ego? The institution of woman is the fountain of spirit in which, in which the future of the human being is nursed. And if almighty God, the infinite God ever chooses to take the form of a human being, He has to flow through the passage of the woman. Therefore, her dignity and her divinity qualifies for the arrival of the spirit. Each woman who tunes to infinity of God creates God on earth. Through the history known to us, it is only the dignity and the divinity of woman which has given the savior to the mankind which has given to the prophets to the mankind, which has given the great men to the mankind. But look, how insecure we are. Today the Catholic Church has decided that woman cannot be priest because she is not holy. As Jesus was born to an unholy institution. In very rude words I say, did anybody know that Jesus was born out of a woman or out of cow? When you see the insanity of the entire human society, reaching to that point. It predicts nothing, but it dictates one thing, man has still not reached the point of universal level of dignity to realize the first giver of life, that is God, second, who nursed the life, the mother. Until the institution of mother does not reveal itself through the laws and bylaws of this institution existence, it will never receive the honor. Therefore my dears, today what we are telling you is, that, that organize yourself, live to your expectations so that you can deliver your expectations. It is the experience which can effectively do the delivering. Therefore remember. As a woman you are the spirit behind every man, known and unknown. Unknown of every known is God. That's why they say, Mother Nature and fatherhood of God. It was not a male society or male religion. Father is male and God is always considered father because the creativity is called Mother Nature because reproductivity is the principle of the woman. Yesterday we had two formulas known to us. What was the first one?

Students: E/M is equal to L/M.

YB: E/M is equal to L/M, Explain it.

Student: (------)

YB: I didn't hear, so many voices, you must learn to speak with one voice.

Students: Energy over misery equals life over misery.

YB: You understand it?

Students: Yes.

YB: E/M is equal to L/M. What was the second code word?

Students: G-T-D.

YB: G-T-D. What is it?

Students: Great thing of the day.

YB: Now one voice.

Students: Great thing of the day.

YB: Now repeat it.

Students: One thing to remember is, all things come from God and all things go to God.

YB: Let everybody speak.

Students: One thing to remember is, all things come from God and all things go to God.

YB: What is G-T-D, greatest thing of the day. What is it?

Students: One thing to remember is, all things come from God and all things go to God.

YB: Okay now tell me, during the whole day today, how many of you remembered this more than ten times, raise your hands. More than ten times. All right, those who repeated during the day for five times. Three times. And please now raise your hands those who didn't repeat the whole day up to now, I want all honesty, no hanky panky. You are all liars. You repeated right now.

(Student's laughter)

You are so unconscious. You call yourself my students and you lie right in my presence and on my face, you don't spare me for a single second. I made you to repeat it three times right now. I said during the day up to now, didn't you hear me? And I made you to repeat before that and everybody came up, what is going to happen to these teachings. And I said to you three times, didn't you hear me and you all repeated before it for three times, is that true are not? Didn't I tell you to raise hand or not?

Student: Yes.

Student: No.

YB: Why not? You said it; you have the right to say it and then you have the right to prove it. There is one sin you must not do. Never be coward. As a woman when you are called upon to be righteous, prove it. As a woman when you are called upon to be righteous, prove it, live it and die it. You shall be one with God. May the long time sun shine upon you, all love surround you and the pure light within you, guide your way on.

Students sing: May the long time sun shine upon you....

YB: How many times today you chanted, G-T-D.

Students: (------)

YB: Okay folks, it was very good to be with you and I hope you will enjoy your presence here. But there are some people who are feeling very lonely and they want to go back home, you are most welcome. Don't misunderstand, it is also very beautiful to go back home. But one case I, will like to know. The only husbands which are freaking out are those of those who freak out with them when they are with them. Because a woman who flows and flows and flows one thing is the net result of it, the man of that woman can never freak out. And I tell you the trick of the trade. What is trick of the trade? It is called TT, trick of the trade. Prove, prove you are constant and secure, your earth and heaven shall be secure for you. Somebody once asked, why God created so many angels? Somebody appeared before God and "God, why do you create all these angels?"

He said, "They are all meant to find such woman who are true and that is where lies my truth."

"Okay God, when you find the woman who lives truth, what you do with her?"

He said, "I don't send my angels, I go myself to merge in that woman."

Thank you very much.
