“You must prepare yourself for the coming onslaught of this tidal wave of insanity which is going to go over us. Weather is changing. Metabolism is changing. Your hormones are changing. Your food production is changing. Therefore, we have to prepare ourselves. We have to have a very stable mind, a very stable personality and very stable communication. For that we need energy.” ~ Yogi Bhajan

The enjoyment of life is the enjoyment of Pranic energy. A hundred years ago, if I would have talked about atomic energy, you would have made a mockery of it. Five thousand years ago people discovered this Pranic energy and a human’s life was very long, very healthy, and very intuitive. How did they discover it? This is not the knowledge of the dead. Yoga is the knowledge of the living being.

Chanting this mantra for at least 11-minutes can help eliminate blocks and errors of the past, as well as support letting go of fear, attachment and pain – with ultimate compassion and patience.  You are only free when you are above time and space. When you are afraid, ‘What will happen tomorrow?’, you are not living, you are just dragging. Spirit is above time and space.” -Yogi Bhajan

As long as humanity does not learn to respect the woman, there will be no peace on this earth. There will be a war always. In our society, woman is used as a tool of the advertising industry.  Her sexuality is exploited to sell automobiles and whiskey.   The most graceful being on this planet is treated disgracefully as a playmate, as a sexual toy.  When we treat the mother of our next generation in such a lowly, negative manner, how can we expect the human condition to improve?

The Guru is a guide that can take you from the darkness into the light. The Guru is an ocean where you can totally merge yourself and come out washed and clean. The Guru is a store of technical know-how where you can go and get taken care of so that you are fit again to take up the responsibility of this planet. The Guru is the secret chamber of your inner self where you can confide your greatest secrets and be guided in the light of righteousness. Those who qualify according to these criteria are truly the blessed ones who have come to serve humanity and carry us through the times.

But what is this meditation? Procedurally, it’s a very simple situation. Coming to the Gurdwara, at the Gate of the Guru, I have seen some people, like myself, who touch the dust of those who have gone before and who leave the dust for those who are to follow. They call it “dil hees.” Dil means the heart. Hees comes from the word “haj” —going to a place for the specific purpose of purification. It is the haj of the heart. So, when a person comes and takes the dust from the feet of those who have gone to the Guru, and leaves the dust for those who shall come, it is a continuous, vibratory, elementary, elevated, conscious action.

Society is feeling a great impact and requires comfort from anybody who can give it. The greatest thing on this Earth is to serve the people of God. That is the highest act a man can do for any other man, but it has to be positive—not that you go help somebody and drag yourself down and get into the pit yourself. You have to be very firm, very honest, very constant, very insistent, and very persuasive. And you have to be very sweet, very kind, very serviceful, and very righteous. These two things go together.

Baisakhi Day is celebrated as the Anniversary of the day when Guru Gobind Singh first initiated five of his faithful disciples into the Khalsa (the Brotherhood of the Pure Ones.) This year, another historical event took place in Guru Ram Das Ashram in Los Angeles, when for the first time in history, an American Sikh participated in administering the Amrit to the nearly 100 Sikhs who had come to receive it.
