Experiences

“Our urging to give the White Tantric course is because we want people to experience their polarities, so that they can resolve their duality and have happy lives.  What you have to study in this whole game is who you are and where you are.  That is the greatest spiritual lesson a person can learn; who he is and where he is.  If a man knows who he is, he must know where he is.  In other words, if you do not know what orbit you are in and what the longitude and latitude are, you do not know your destination.”  ~ Yogi Bhajan

The Siri Singh Sahib had told us that the soul of a demon and the soul of a saint are the same, that all souls belong to God.  He had also told us that the worst curse is a self- curse.  What was cured in me was not my soul, but the darkness in which I had engulfed it by my own self-hatred.  For my whole life, I had never respected women for their real beauty, and now in the presence of my wife and the Mahan Tantric, my prayer to become pure for the sake of a woman had been answered.  I was in ecstasy.

In 1969, Yogi Bhajan was the only one teaching Kundalini Yoga.  Critics called it dangerous.  Now, in 1979, the concept of kundalini has become popular and many teachers attach the name of kundalini to any effort at yoga or philosophy and many claim to be masters of Kundalini Yoga.  Yet, it is only Yogi Bhajan who has systematically unfolded such a tremendous wealth of knowledge on the specific technology and practice of Kundalini Yoga.  He has not diluted it and has never strayed from its high standards of commitment and precision.  It is Yogi Bhajan who will be known in the history of human consciousness as our age’s great teacher and Master of Kundalini Yoga.

I cannot believe that I truly have been so blessed in this life to have found such a holy man!  One of the most intense moments that I can recall is that very moment in which I realized this blessing.  At that time, I had a realization that I had nothing whatsoever to fear and that no problem could overcome me because of this gift .It was a spring White Tantric Yoga course, the first one I had attended since I had made the great transition of moving into an ashram.  I was very insecure, very afraid of my future. I was leaving my past forever, for I had taken on a new name, a name which at first made me feel a deep anxiety, as I wondered if I could ever really say in confidence “I am Dev Bhajan Kaur Khalsa.”

The words he spoke went straight to my soul.  It was what I wanted to hear all of my life: “I don’t care if you learn yoga from me or not.  I don’t care if you love me or hate me, that doesn’t mean a thing to me.  All I care is that you should learn to live together in the future as human beings and to take care of each other.”

“Oh, Supreme One, the Supreme Consciousness and beyond all, but in all.  Oh, Formless in every form that existed through the time, the Supreme unifier that existed through the tie, the Supreme unifier that made it possible that creatures so created in Thy consciousness, could meditate on Thee, and could relate to Thee.  You talked, You listened to Your existence.  Beyond You, there was never existence, and never there shall be.  Give us the power to believe, to be confirmed in our belief to be with Thee in all our conscious, subconscious, and supreme conscious acts. Exalt us into Thee so that we can carry the Light of Thy Name, future of Thy spirit and service of Thy Grace.  Give us power to be one with everyone to find the One within and without and vice us unity to live in oneness of mankind and humanity so that we can enjoy the happiness, bliss, and state of ecstasy through Thy Grace.”

To achieve Universal Consciousness through any method, you have to raise your kundalini … Now, understand what kundalini is.  Kundal means lock, neck lock.  Kundalini means that coiled energy.  God is like an unlimited coil that separates itself into smaller coils that can uncoil and experience Infinity.  That is the simple reality of this life.  It is so simple, it is so scientific… If that coiled energy is joined with the seat of the soul, i.e. the pineal gland in the brain, what will happen?

During White Tantra, the infinite energy of the universe flows through the Mahan Tantric into all of the participants.  White Tantric is no ordinary yoga.  It cannot be practiced without the Mahan Tantric present because it takes his mastery over emotions for it to be not only effective, but safe.  Partners face each other in lines while the Mahan Tantric physically sits in front of the group and projects his own astral body to encircle the group.  He, thereby, extends own psycho-electro- magnetic field to encompass the group aura.

“The first gift of higher consciousness is the state of equilibrium, where neither praise inflates you nor slander depresses you. That is the first gift if you have experienced the kundalini.  In this state, when somebody comes and tells you that you are great, you say that God is great, and when somebody tells you you are an idiot, you still say that God is great.  You have one altar, which is Infinity, and on it you lay everything.  That is the first state, the state of equilibrium.  

 You may like praise, you may even love it, but you offer it at the altar of your Creator; you may dislike slander, but you offer it at the altar of your Creator.  This is a state of equilibrium.  When a person lives in the ecstasy of equilibrium, he is super sensitive; therefore, he is grateful.  This attitude of gratitude makes a person great.  If you ever want to be great, this is the minimum requirement.”  (February 19, 1976)

Oh, Supreme Consciousness hold this individual Consciousness to that height so that man can sustain through the practical experience of Thy ecstasy.  Oh, Thou the Self of all selves, the Expansion beyond time, beyond matter.  Oh, True Teacher, the only teacher.  Oh, the Creator of channels, through Thy prayers and Name let this day be a turning point in realization towards You and the experience of vastness and limitlessness may be in every heart. Open every heart and shower Thy greatness.  Let this day lead to the self and the union with the Supreme Self.  In Thy Name we call on Thee into Thy abode of ecstasy and infinity

He spoke for about half an hour.  I didn’t understand more than a few words he said. His accent, or perhaps it was his ideas, went right past me.  I was getting restless.  Then he had us do a short meditation, and in an instant, the world changed. I didn’t know what happened.  I was still skeptical but now I felt as if I were floating.  It was strong enough to  propel us towards twice weekly yoga classes where we tried, we experienced, we knew.

When the kundalini rises in a person, his radiance increases, his arc line increases, and his strength of aura increases.  He does not start yelling and going berserk; that is not the effect of the kundalini rising.  Yoga is a tool; it is an instrument of Infinity.  It is a science through which a person works.  It is just like electric current passing through a light bulb.  It doesn’t matter if the bulb is seventy-five watts or three watts, the current will still make the light shine.  It won’t burn any filament.  It will give light to everybody.  And one thing it gives to all, it does not allow a person to be depressed.
