“The eight strokes will make you watch and count the breath and that will force you to relate to your breath. Best procedure is that you do this exercise every evening. Eleven minutes a day of eight-stroke breathing can give you enough energy to balance your (daily) consumption of (pranic) life and take you out of stress. Is it possible? Do you have eleven minutes?” ~Yogi Bhajan Read: "Meditation to Alleviate Stress – The 8 Stroke Breath"
This mantra, also known as the Siri Mantra or the Magic Mantra, stops anything negative and removes all obstacles. It brings great intuition. If the mantra is chanted 5 times, it will stop the mind and put it into reverse gear. It can take you beyond duality and establish the flow of spirit.
It needs to be chanted with reverence. After chanting this mantra, anything you say will be amplified, so be positive and don’t say anything negative, at least for a while. This mantra can have a negative backlash if chanted incorrectly. So it’s best to invoke the sacred—chant or meditate before practicing this mantra.

At times when the path of truth and clarity seems lost, calm yourself and still your mind, then the path will come to you. To live life according to the guidance of the inner truth is essential. If you do not, you will have doubts. If doubts are not removed, then frustration comes in. Frustration, when not released, leads to anger. Anger then leads to destructive action either to the self, others, or both. To stop this vicious cycle, create the habit to still the mind and ask questions of your own higher consciousness. This meditation can develop that capacity and strengthen your mental direction. Read: "Meditation for Guidance"

With regular practice of this kriya, you will start hearing the inner voice, knowing exactly what is being said inside.
The Siri Guru Granth Sahib is a subtle Word. It is a permutation and combination of words in ragas (a set of rules of how to build a melody). If you properly analyze it and understand it, it is beyond wonders. Slowly people recognize it and come to an understanding of the words. As was said by John, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” What was, what is and what shall be, are the same. One thing remains constant, consistent and carefree, and that is God Himself. God is not a person – it is a Self-Perpetuating Energy. And when you become near Divine, you also become a self-perpetuating energy, and then there is nothing good, nothing bad, nothing wrong and nothing high.
If you are gold, you will end up as gold. In this attitude of life, karmas do not matte. What matters is the attention you pay to your Creator. ~Excerpted from Yogi Bhajan Lecture, July 21, 2001 Read: "Meditation to Hear the Inner Voice"

This is the Information Age – everybody can be informed about anything and everything. There is no secret, therefore there is no sacredness. Life is going to become an open book. When your computer is more loyal, truthful, informed and excellent than you, you will be challenged. You do not have to compete with anybody. You have to compete with yourself. Sooner or later there will be no marriages, and no relationships, because you will not have the mind to control yourself. Computers will take over your life and all you will find is frustration. You have to prepare yourself with a meditative mind and applied consciousness. Taking shelter in faith and hope will not work. It does not matter how successful you are—money, environments and success will not give you any strength at all. Those who are a slave of these and caught up in emotions and commotions are not spiritual. They have no trust in God. They have not understood the Greatness of the Ever-Prevailing Lord, the Creator of the Universe. Read: "Information Age and Meditation to De-Stress"

Guru is that guidance which takes you from darkness to light. Gurprasad means Guru’s Grace or Blessing; given by the grace of the Guru. When you are given a gift, a blessing, accept it as it is given. Don’t try to change it to your liking. Accept it with great devotion so it can open doors for you. Read: "Meditation for Gurprasad"
