Face to Face with My Negative Mind

Face to Face with My Negative Mind

As Yogi Bhajan said, mantra literally means mental wave, mental vibration. So by reciting a mantra we cut old patterns and set up a new vibration. There is no need to drown in negativity and depression. It truly becomes possible to transform the mind, to feel a deep sense of belonging to my spirit. As I watch people around me struggle with their own longing, I hope my words can help others to find their inner peace and know that they belong.

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Radiant Woman

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Radiant Woman

“You do not understand your features. Your features are not your beautiful nose, your beautiful cheeks, beautiful lips, and so on. These are not your features. Your features are your beautiful behavior, your beautiful character, your beautiful health, your beautiful spirit, your beautiful advice, your beautiful wisdom, your beautiful inspiration.”

Las Vigas and the Siri Singhasan

Las Vigas and the Siri Singhasan

In the midst of that fullness, perhaps, on his second or third visit, the Siri Singh Sahib was sitting up on the front platform gazing at the ceiling.

“Look! This Gurdwara was really built properly. There are 11 Gurus and there are 11 vigas.”

That was when I realized, that although the community came together, and there some who had spent most of the year working, it was truly the Guru who had built his Gurdwara.

The Beauty of Kundalini Yoga

The Beauty of Kundalini Yoga

The beauty of Kundalini Yoga is that if you can just sit physically, set the automatic rhythm of your pranayam (breath control) and add a creative naad (inner sound), your mind is focused and balanced. In a kriyā you can immediately strike a complete physical, mental and spiritual balance. It works so efficiently and quickly because of this fullness, balance and energy.

Recording the Guru’s Bani

Recording the Guru’s Bani

Gateway to the Soul gives you the powerful effects of the Banis in English translation, to open your heart, steady your mind, and connect you with your strength, courage, and Infinite Consciousness. Listening to or reciting the Banis gives you inner balance, grace, radiance, and energy; stopping the negative cycle of the mind and reversing its thought forms. Although the greatest benefit of the Banis is through recitation in the original Gurmukhi, Gateway to the Soul offers them in English, with musical accompaniment, so you can enjoy their subtle, joyful vibrations. The Banis are truly meant to be experienced by the heart.

Dear Yogiji: Questions and Answers about Spiritual Teachers in the Aquarian Age

Dear Yogiji: Questions and Answers about Spiritual Teachers in the Aquarian Age

Q: What is a spiritual teacher?

A: None of you have any idea about what a spiritual teacher is. In India, it took five thousand years to come to an understanding of what a spiritual teacher is and now they have lost it too. The relationship between student and Teacher is like the relationship between a chisel and hammer and stone. Do you know what happens when a Teacher and a student meet? Sparks.

Don’t look for a Teacher. Look for integrity. Look for one who can integrate the totality of the Infinity with the reality in the finite of the self, and still laugh. He knows; he won’t tell. He understands; he won’t speak. Because his power is not his own. His power is his own inner prayer, which is calm, quiet, peaceful, and goes with him. Word is God. In the beginning there was the word, the word was with God, the word was Integrity. (Aquarian Times, Winter 2005)

Listening to the Sound of Your Soul

Listening to the Sound of Your Soul

Yogi Bhajan once spoke about the relationship between the neutral mind and intuition, or inner guidance. He explained that the neutral mind has its own mantra: “Guide me to the Lord, my Lord.” Right now, take a moment to slow your breath. Repeat these words for three minutes. When you are done, notice the quality of your thoughts and how you feel. Let this practice become a habit.

What is Conscious Communication?

What is Conscious Communication?

The art of communication is simple and it must flow from you. Neither react nor act negatively in communication. It is very dangerous. There’s no solution to it. It will take away all your merits. It will leave you hollow, shallow, in pain. That is the power of the negative bani. Therefore, under no circumstances are you required to speak negative language, and you must not communicate in a way which will be offensive. Neither should you speak in a way which should be just buttering. Speaking should be neither overdoing nor under-doing nor super-positive nor super-negative. Speaking should be straight because between two lines, the direct route is the shortest.

When YogiJi Came to La Scala Restaurant

When YogiJi Came to La Scala Restaurant

From the onset, I always wondered who these beautiful people were. Gracefully dressed in white and so respectful of everyone in their presence and each other. I never inquired formally back then. I felt I didn’t want to disturb the blissful flow of service while dining. I simply served what they’d asked for and gently observed from a distance.

I Am a Man of Infinity

I Am a Man of Infinity

I see that time as the beginning of my waking up from the illusionary experience of my own habitual thoughts, and emotions—which are simply more deeply believed and embodied thoughts—that formed my identity of myself in the world as a male: contracted, scared, in fear and full of rage. Then came more pain. It wasn’t easier now that I had started to wake up. It was actually more difficult for quite a while, because I saw that the struggle was right inside me. Finally, I broke down and prayed. I asked the Tratakum picture, “What do I do? Just tell me, please!” The answer came quickly, “Do Nothing.”

Breath Sparks the Flame of Spirit

Breath Sparks the Flame of Spirit

You can think all day about being motivated, but what does that accomplish? Probably not much. The Manipura (3rd Chakra) is located in the space between the navel and the Solar Plexus, and acts as the seat of the sense of self and the center of gravity of the physical body. If balanced, the physical self will be radiant and the mental body will resist negativity!

Strengthening Your Radiance:  Be the Light

Strengthening Your Radiance: Be the Light

Radiance is our projection. We affirm who we are through the word—Sat Nam. We experience who we are through the breath. We deliver who we are through our radiance. Yogi Bhajan often said our presence should be a healing. Can you imagine your radiance uplifting someone from across a room, someone you’ve never even met or may never meet? This is what is asked of us in the Aquarian Age. As leaders, teachers, healers, and yogis, our presence is our radiance; and if our presence cannot deliver, nothing will.

“It will bring peace to those on whose forehead it is not written.  It will bring prosperity to those who do not know how to spell it.  It will bring you good luck when you have done nothing good even in your dreams.  Because this is the lotus, this is the opening of the lotus and turning the mother divine power back to  the navel point.  It is a path.  I gave you this gift, so that you can give it to your children, grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren and especially to your old relatives who are on the way out, but they do not know where to exit.”

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Summer Solstice

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Summer Solstice

We come here for a general aura. I am not saying that when you leave here you will not have doubts. I am not saying that if you take your car for a custom cleaning and polish it won’t get dirty when you drive it on the road. I am not promising you anything. I am not saying that when you drive on a freeway, there is no possibility of an accident. I am not asking that any tragedy, any misery, any misfortune goes away from you. All I am asking is that you should have the courage to overcome.
June 24, 1999
