“We have totally forgotten that this Universe is the outcome of vibration. This Universe is not communication. This Universe is not money. This Universe is not love, it is not sex, it is not beauty, it is not even God. That one line is true: “In the beginning there was the Word, Word was with God, and Word was God.” That’s all it is about. What is a word? Creative vibration.” 7/18/84

“Japa (chanting) is when you sit and meditate on a mantra and you spend days and days and days in constant repetition of God’s name and God progressively calms the ego. The more mild the ego is, the more your finite Infinity starts seeing the Infinite Infinity. First you do things to be secure on Earth. Then you start seeing things beyond Earth, and what is beyond Earth is called higher consciousness…

…When you start seeing that, you become humble, because when you see that kind of greatness you become humble. When you see the creativity of the Creator and you compare it with yourself as a creature, you start seeing the vastness, the happiness. That is how the consciousness becomes happy. Chanting the japa is for this. Even the politicians know something about chanting to create vibrations, to create a magnetic field of energy. We know how to do it. Unconsciously we do it. Meditation in japa is a conscious effect of creating that huge magnetic ether energy to have the grasp of the Infinity.”

“God is everywhere, waiting for you to call. His zip code is His mantra. Mantra is just like that: you take a stone and you throw it in the water, and constant waves go. That is what mantra is all about. It is to be remembered, remembered, remembered; it is to be chanted inside of you with your heart, your mind, your body. The only longing you have is to repeat it. It may be difficult to begin with, but soon God will come through and work for you.”

“What does it mean to master a mantra? When you have repeated it so much, so often, and so well that you hear it within your being, and it comes handy to you—especially at the moment of death—you have mastered a mantra.”
–Yogi Bhajan from Kundalini Yoga: The Flow of Eternal Power, p. 35.
