Yogi Bhajan Quotes

“Without soul you don’t exist and soul without Subtle Body cannot move. Subtlety of life is that you be refined to the subtlety of life. You should see under the skin of everything. Your actions should not only be right but they should look right. Your word should be eternal. Once you promise right and wrong, once you give your word, that’s it. There is one problem: whenever you will study with a spiritual teacher he will put you into so many puzzles to find out whether you can stand on your feet or not, because there is no university which ever gives you a diploma or a degree without examination. You are curious to know what is God. A spiritual teacher is curious to know where you stand in relationship with God.” ~Yogi Bhajan

“I am just trying to make you change, because you want to change but you don’t change. I know you. It is very difficult for you to leave your habits. First, we create habits and then our habits create us.  Lots of people say, “We want to learn.” Not true! It is the last thing we want to do. Learning is as painful, as difficult, and as tragic as tragedy can be. Learning is training the subjective to read the objective. Learning is not about the object. Learning is not ‘Okay, I am going to do business.  I am going to reach the goal.’  That is objectivity. Learning is no such thing. Learning is first subjectivity and then objectivity. The problem is that no human has the nerves for it.

Forgive me for that. You are wonderful people, but you are bad students. That is just the way the Western mind is.  You want what you want. The first principle of the world is to deserve what you want, not to desire what you want.”

Yogi Bhajan: “Today I am calling you once, and I shall be calling again after my death.  This call of mine shall be an everlasting call:  it will be heard through centuries and through generations.  I am calling all the women of the world to come back home, to the home of divinity and dignity, so that this earth can live in peace:  otherwise, it will become a cinder and there shall be no human race.  The only saving factor which there can be is a dignified, divine woman. and that has to be created all around.”

“The totality of all yogas is Kundalini Yoga, the yoga of awareness, the yoga of consciousness.  It is specific.  This yoga is for those who want to do a specific and special course in consciousness and awareness.  It demands commitment.  Commitment is the highest virtue.  It must be practiced in the highest discipline.  That is why Kundalini Yoga demands commitment.”
