Soorya Kaur (staff member of Yogi Bhajan) shared these quotes by Yogi Bhajan and this photo on pages 60-61 of her book YogiJi – The Light of Our Souls, written in 2005
“There is no better way to teach nobility to a child than to demonstrate nobility against their tantrums. Every child is a ‘Swami Trauma’. To make him a ‘Yogi Rama’, it takes a lot of noble behavior on the part of the parents. Children have the right to traumas. That gives them the aggressiveness to know and investigate. To expect children to get rid of traumas is totally wrong. It means parents want their children to be vegetables. Parents have the right to cut the ‘t’ and leave the ‘r’. Rama. Rama means the giver of the sun and moon, whereas trauma is the act of the ego, which a child picks up perfectly.
When a child is going through a trauma, the first noble act is to make him recognize that he is going through a trauma, and that you understand. Then it becomes just a drama. The child will immediately change the drama act and start doing something different. If that does not work, you have to exert your authority in a legitimate way to make the child think that you cannot be conquered by that injection of trauma. You will be successful.”
“You don’t have to buy love for your children. They will love you until death, if you give the values and nobility.”
