Balancing Mind & Heart unto Infinity

Lord, awaken the soul, open the heart, give the excellence. Let me be kind to those who have been unkind to me. Let me love those who have hated me. Let me serve those who have betrayed me. Let me pray for those who have denied me. But be with me ever, ever, ever, unto Infinity. ~March 13, 1985

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Prayer (Part 3)

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Prayer (Part 3)

The concept of prayer is to tap my own unknown for my known. When the known and unknown are united in the oneness of the self, God is alive. When the known and unknown are separated in any concept, God is dormant—not dead, not gone—dormant. Therefore, the power of prayer has to be continuous.

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Prayer (Part 2)

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Prayer (Part 2)

Your prayers are not answered because you do not know the projection of the prayer. How do you pray? God is over some sky or in San Diego somewhere. Then you pray to Him or to Her, whatever the case is. Actually, prayer is always to the rhythmic beat of the heart from inside. That’s prayer. Any prayer outside is a waste of time, and a misleading religious practice. Prayer is not done to somebody. That’s why mostly your prayers don’t work. It is not your fault. You have never been told how to pray.

You Shall Never Leave Me Again

You Shall Never Leave Me Again

Yogiji spoke at least a few times about his belief that the Americans (us, we, ME!) who found Sikh Dharma (through Kundalini Yoga) were very likely to be reincarnations of those frightened souls who ran from Guru Gobind Singh’s call for the “head of a brave young one” that first Vaisakhi Day. The song says “many did they run away and many did they hide … ” Those particular words always affected me with shivers down (or up) my spine when we sang them during gurdwara or any 3HO/Sikh Dharma function.

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Gratitude (Part 1)

Speak truthfully; speak simply, straightforwardly and with a smile. Never try to impress others; try to impress yourself. Find happiness within you. Find an attitude of gratitude. Be happy for what God has given you. All happiness will come to you if you are happy. Happiness will come to you because happiness wants to go where happiness is.  ~ Yogi Bhajan, 9/21/91

The Most Divine Gesture: Sharing the Power of Prana

The Most Divine Gesture: Sharing the Power of Prana

“Best thing in your life, if you can ever do it, will be key to your happiness, prosperity and power, is to uplift others just with a smile. Don’t do anything, just with somebody who is very depressed. Put a hand around the neck and say, ‘I am with you.’ Hold somebody’s hand and close your eyes and start meditating. Hug somebody and keep long deep breathing with the person. That little gesture is more divine and powerful than anything else you do on the planet. Give a helping hand. Breathe with a person, because your total life is based on the breath of life.” ~ Yogi Bhajan

Clarity of Thought: Expanding the Lung Capacity

“If you can keep the ribcage forward during both the inhale and exhale, your lungs can have a powerful reaction. You can purify the entire material which is stuck there. Otherwise, we don’t have any procedure to clean the lungs. Everybody can talk about it, nobody can do it. This is one procedure you can do.” ~Yogi Bhajan

Yogi Bhajan Quotes: Projecting Your Light Across Time and Space (Part 2)

The head is a computer. The heart has the power of 108 suns. The Heart Center is the strongest of all centers. Whenever you pray with the head, it will take so long—you have to go through the intellect, thought, circumstance, environment, space and time. Whenever you sing or pray from the heart, it will be timeless, spaceless and absolutely effective.

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Conscious Communication (Part 2)

If people depend on me to be a man of truth, I have to prove again and again and again and again that I am a man of truth. It cannot be that on Monday I am a man of truth, on Tuesday I speak three-quarters truth, Wednesday I speak half-truth, on Thursday I speak one-quarter truth, on Friday I don’t speak at all, and on Saturday I can’t even think how to speak the truth. -July 3, 1982

Meditation to Experience the Essence of a Teacher

Meditation to Experience the Essence of a Teacher

“You have come here to become teachers. It is my responsibility to tell you what a teacher is. We are putting the tape of that shabad of Nanak in which a Teacher is described. If you understand what is written in this shabad, and you understand that is the way you want to be, you are a Teacher. As long as I live, I will keep on hammering you, that’s all it is.”

My Story of How I Became a Sikh, Attended NMMI and Got Married

My Story of How I Became a Sikh, Attended NMMI and Got Married

Some of my fondest memories growing up were living in the ashram in Denver and going to solstices and/or other community events around the country.  There were many unusual people who came through the ashram in those early days.  My brother and I were generally the only kids around and we had lots of “older brothers and sisters”.  I also vividly remember the impact the music of the day had on me.  When I would come home to the ashram after school and everyone was still at work and I was home by myself, I would blast Singh Kaur’s “Beloved God” and “Ad Guray Nameh”, while looking out the big picture window of the sadhana room.  Bliss!

The Yogi

The Yogi

The Yogi focuses his attention in the Light
And tells the deepest secrets…

The ineffable description
Of remembrance of the Nam
Of Shakti and Bhakti,
And of Brahma’s Gyan.

The words flow through him naturally,
And bowing to Guru Ram Das,
The Mender of Broken Destinies,

Centered deeply in Prayer…

He speaks,
So that, by Guru’s Grace,
Everyone may hear.

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Mantra (Part 1)

“Sat Nam is the bij, or seed, mantra. It is small and potent. Great things grow from it. If it is not written in your destiny to be with God and to know higher consciousness, this mantra will engrave it in your destiny.”

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Teaching (Part 4)

Some things you are free to do; other things you are not free to do. We have kept the teachings of Kundalini Yoga pure from the time we know to the time we are. That’s why when some people teach Kundalini Yoga it doesn’t work. They teach philosophy, they teach chakras, sometimes they make up kriyas. It’s a good time, but it will not touch the core. It’s as simple as that.

THE PATH AND THE DESTINATION (Raah te Manzil)

There are thousands of Paths and thousands of Karmas.
There are thousands of Prophets and thousands of Dharmas.

I’ve searched thousands of places, and not found one person,
Who was tired of their Karmas and of not finding happiness.
Thousands have searched and never found God.

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Giving & Seva (Part 1)

No man can give a man anything other than love. No man can give a man anything other than hope. No man can give a man anything but service. The only thing you can do is act like a forklift—go into the dirt and lift the other person and put him on track, so he can proceed.
