Let us be holy, happy and bright
Beautiful days and cozy nights.
Joyful living and loving care,
You and me and us we share.
Smiles and our songs they’ll live forever
We’ll leave these memories for our children’s ecstasy.
That is our legacy, a guide to destiny, our destiny.
A Teacher doesn’t hear—he’s deaf. He doesn’t speak—he’s dumb. He doesn’t see—he’s blind. He just carries the teachings. He never amends them, never adds to them, never subtracts from them. You don’t interpret it; you just respectfully carry it to another, and that to another, and that to another. When you do this, all knowledge will come to you. Everything will dawn on you. Your Teacher will speak in you. Your Teacher will guide in you.
What does yoga do for you? Yoga works to unite you; it gives you energy so that you can be transformed. To bring you from unawareness to awareness is the purpose of Kundalini Yoga. Yoga does nothing more and nothing less.
Let us not cause pain to each other by our shallowness, by our duality, by our belittle-ness. Let us become as vast as God is and hug each other, love each other. It is in that heart of us that we all live. It is the beat of the heart which is common among us. It is the breath of life which is common among us. It is the Creator in us which is common among us. So we are all one, like one sun. We are all the rays.
Our family’s first contact with Yogi Bhajan happened a few months after I (Hari Singh) attended a Theosophical Society meeting in Winter Park, a suburb of Orlando, Florida in 1969, not long after the historic Woodstock Music Festival.
It was September 13, 1968. Harbhajan Singh Yogi, now thirty-nine years of age, waited his turn in the line-up that had just disembarked at Toronto’s international airport. In the queue were tourists, professionals, government people and hopeful immigrants. Gradually, Harbhajan’s place in line moved up, as people were cleared at the front by the customs inspectors.
Would it surprise you if I told you that the people we surround ourselves with have a profound impact on us? Indeed, one of the most widely used sayings in the English language, “You are the company you keep” dates as far back as Biblical times: “He that walketh with...
In the Age of Aquarius, the dharma of a person shall be to reach out. Reach out to help. Reach out to share smiles. Reach out to hear each other. Reach out to every person without judgement.
There is only one problem: You do not trust your powers. There is no difference between you and God. Count your blessings. Be proud of yourself. Make your children, friends and neighbors proud of you. Let your touch be the Master’s Touch. Serve the Age of Aquarius. Keep up and God will keep you up. Trust it. Stop looking down at yourself. Feel God within. There is no God outside of you.
The time is changing; people are looking toward fulfillment of the self through purity and piety, individuality, and reality. They don’t want to practice duality anymore. Sex will not be the attraction. A sensory system will develop; a new system in which the individual will find himself or herself complete.
The Age of Aquarius is coming our way. Emptiness, insanity and pain shall be everybody’s affair. People will like to hit walls to find out where they can go. They shall come to you. As insane as they are, if you do not take away their pain, and instead you sit in judgement, you are wrong people. That’s why we wanted to teach you how to remain disciplined in the most undisciplined world.
The load of Karma, the ego of the man and the negativity has gone so deep that the positive vibrations have to be created to save the world. You can’t live in this world without a balance and you have to keep balance. There is nobody who is special. Everything is created by the one Creator and you are a temporary custodian of that situation. This is the message of the Aquarian Age. Everyone has to learn to change.
Electronic technology will only bring us more information, more choices, more contacts, and more complexity. It will push us beyond all the old frontiers of identity—home, neighborhood, country, values, and the natural rhythms of nature. Our old touchstones for forming an identity will fail and we will have a pervasive identity crisis.
That is the era in which we are living—the Aquarian Age, the age of truth and love, the age of oneness—when man and God will become one. A new difference, a new ideology, a new life, absolutely something very new. A new wisdom will dawn on man. He will come out of all this unawarenes
The Command of the Khalsa is to live the Rehit!
The Perfect Khalsa has learned this.
The technology of the Rehit belongs to the Khalsa who lives it
And becomes one with the Perfect Guru.
The Command of the Khalsa has been given by God.
The Gurmantra has been placed within our hearts.
Obedience is the way to Reality.
Only those who live the Rehit are liberated.
The Command of the Khalsa is the very Spirit of the Khalsa,
And its daily practice is the Way of the Khalsa.
It may take a long time for the truth to come out but always victory will be with the truth. Patience pays.
This is the principal difference between the Age of Pisces and the Age of Aquarius; Aquarius quenches the thirst of everyone, while Pisces is symbolized by two fish biting at the tail of each other. Get out of the water, pick up your pot and quench the thirst of everyone.
Ek must be powerful, from the navel point strong,
Then (at the back of the throat—out through the nose—and not too long),
Powerfully vibrate Ong.
The plan was that the addition to the Gurdwara would take a year.
Construction would begin after Summer Solstice of 1989 and be completed for Summer Solstice 1990. That schedule was met. Where the Sangat met for Sadhana and Sunday Gurdwara was moved down to the former “barracks”, while construction proceeded.
Work would go on all week, with others, who could join, helping out on the weekends. First came the excavation and demolition. The entry on the west side was torn out and the hill leading to it was cut back and leveled. The trenches for the foundations were dug and prepared for concrete. Don’t kid yourself, it wasn’t all hand work, there was a small budget for the project, heavy equipment was used for digging.
God is beyond His Creation,
The Soul is beyond limitation.
The Creation blossoms forth . . .
Beyond victory or defeat.
In the flow of deep meditation . . .
My nectar thoughts are filled with God.
Touching the Guru’s Feet,
My Boat arrives on the Yonder Shore.
