If you call me names, I’ll be very grateful, because it reminds me to lean on God more and understand Ang Sang Wahe Guru. And it’s my prayer that you may have the same attitude. Those who live in God, have attitude of gratitude. Those who live in ego have attitude of self.
Chanting this mantra seven or more times totally balances the electro-magnetic field of the body. A long-time student will still mediate in this way, particularly to clear off the effects of a hurried day before beginning a deep meditation. After you chant this mantra, you will feel calm, relaxed and mellow.
A Woman of Truth,
A daughter of God,
Faithful to her husband,
Absorbed in Him,
Working hard to serve others,
Remembering God while she works,
That woman is Divine!
Wise and beautiful!
Woman is unknowable and unfathomable.
Woman is the powerful flow of Shakti.
From woman the Lights of God are born.
By a woman’s prayer all doubts are destroyed.
Each student of yoga must confront the mental attitude of insecurity and doubt. Actually, there are two mental styles we can use to go through life. In one style, we act as if everybody were saints until proven thieves. In the other style, we act as if everybody were thieves until proven saints. Which style of life your mind uses depends on the strength and balance of your nervous system.
We want to get rid of this ‘couldn’t.’ We want to make our will so clean, so clear, so positive, that the ‘couldn’t’ doesn’t touch our shores. We have a very strong disease: ‘couldn’t.’ And ultimately this ‘couldn’t’ is like a cancer and eats our determination, our essence—because we ‘couldn’t.’
All our problems on this planet come from this ‘couldn’t.’ This ‘couldn’t’ gives us a slip from our Dharma, from our duty.

Practice the Yoga of Marriage,
And in that Marriage, practice the Yoga of Detachment.
Stay unattached in the midst of wealth,
And remember God’s Name with every breath.
The Yogi speaks effortlessly …
From the Love and Light of his Heart,
And from the depth of his meditative Wisdom.
Oh, Sikhs of the Guru! Oh, Khalsa!

The practice of Raj Yoga is the churning which yields the butter of life.
Singing the Guru’s Kirtan, all fears and miseries leave you.
If you meditate on God’s Name, your life shall not be in vain.
Lord, awaken the soul, open the heart, give the excellence. Let me be kind to those who have been unkind to me. Let me love those who have hated me. Let me serve those who have betrayed me. Let me pray for those who have denied me. But be with me ever, ever, ever, unto Infinity. ~March 13, 1985
The concept of prayer is to tap my own unknown for my known. When the known and unknown are united in the oneness of the self, God is alive. When the known and unknown are separated in any concept, God is dormant—not dead, not gone—dormant. Therefore, the power of prayer has to be continuous.
Your prayers are not answered because you do not know the projection of the prayer. How do you pray? God is over some sky or in San Diego somewhere. Then you pray to Him or to Her, whatever the case is. Actually, prayer is always to the rhythmic beat of the heart from inside. That’s prayer. Any prayer outside is a waste of time, and a misleading religious practice. Prayer is not done to somebody. That’s why mostly your prayers don’t work. It is not your fault. You have never been told how to pray.
Prayer is when the mind is one-pointed and man talks to Infinity. Meditation is when the mind becomes totally clean and receptive, and Infinity talks to the man.
Yogiji spoke at least a few times about his belief that the Americans (us, we, ME!) who found Sikh Dharma (through Kundalini Yoga) were very likely to be reincarnations of those frightened souls who ran from Guru Gobind Singh’s call for the “head of a brave young one” that first Vaisakhi Day. The song says “many did they run away and many did they hide … ” Those particular words always affected me with shivers down (or up) my spine when we sang them during gurdwara or any 3HO/Sikh Dharma function.
Speak truthfully; speak simply, straightforwardly and with a smile. Never try to impress others; try to impress yourself. Find happiness within you. Find an attitude of gratitude. Be happy for what God has given you. All happiness will come to you if you are happy. Happiness will come to you because happiness wants to go where happiness is. ~ Yogi Bhajan, 9/21/91
The ‘promises’ held out by all-time honored religions and/or lifestyles are enough to elevate the disgruntled to a less disgruntled state. These ‘promises’ can be defined as follows: If the spiritual aspirant accepts the teacher, the teachings, and/or God as the provider, protector, and grantor of salvation in his or her life, life will gain happiness, relevance, and liberation. The more the spiritual aspirant can be in ‘devotion to’ and ‘trust in’ this concept, the more content life becomes.
