The Manifestation of Mother Nature through Woman, the First Teacher

Listen to this first lecture the Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan gave at KWTC (Khalsa Women’s Training Camp) on July 5, 1976:   Or read this edited version (as published in the KWTC notes “Woman in Training:  The Technology of the Graceful Woman”.) The average woman today is being subjected to human cruelty and she has no defense against it. From the time she is born, she is considered to be a second-class citizen; not only in America, but all around the world. And there are very few exceptions.  Secondly, the cost of the security necessary to protect her...

In praise of the Mother

The loss of a mother is a very unique loss and I would like to share with you what amother is. Within my life I couldn’t do anything wrong because my mother wouldn’t letme do that; I couldn’t become egocentric because she didn’t tolerate it. I remember oneinstance of my life which virtually was a turning point. I was to decide a case and asblunt and truthful as I pretend to be the other party knew that the judgement would beharsh. They couldn’t use any tactics of bribing or influence, but they found out theweakest part, and that was...

God Has Found You

Excerpts from a lecture by Yogi Bhajan, as shared in the Kundalini Quarterly, Summer Solstice 1976 Bicentennial Issue, and titled “Ego, Guru, Guide”. The purpose of life is not to find God. I don’t care if you beat me up, you will never convince me that we are here for that purpose. It is the biggest lie that people believe these days. Why do you want to find God? God has already found you. You are only here on this Earth to begin with because of Him. It is amazing what you sometimes let yourself believe. Even if you...

The Greatest Meditation

Here is the full audio and a written excerpt of a lecture by the Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan on May 16, 1976 in Los Angeles, CA, USA.  My subject today is “The Greatest Meditation.” The greatest meditation is coming to the Guru. There is no meditation which can beat it. There’s no technology which can make up for it. There’s no grace which can be earned other than this. But what is this meditation? Procedurally, it’s a very simple situation. Coming to the Gurdwara, at the Gate of the Guru, I have seen some people, like myself, who...

Simran and Seva

This lecture by the Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan appeared in the summer 1975 Beads of Truth. The mystery in the religious world has been that the religious leaders have been telling people to perform certain actions, without telling them why they should do those actions. You have to tell a person why he is to do a thing, then how he is to do it, and what the stages are in doing it, and what will happen in all of those stages. Even this is not satisfactory, you must also say why one should not miss doing it,...

Expand – Now is the Time

Excerpts from a lecture by Yogi Bhajan, Teachers Course, Santa Cruz, California, 1974 You must have one door of your home open where people can call on you, people can trust you, people can get help from you, people can approach you. There are many reasons why people will need to relate to you. The coming times are going to be very hard on the society as a whole. There may be 10 casualties, 50 thefts, 20 robberies, 100 rapes—all that is going on in society. Do you know who is responsible for it? We all are. All acts of...

Yogi Bhajan Lecture: Baisakhi – The Day of Rebirth

This is a lecture by Yogi Bhajan, as it appeared in Beads of Truth in June 1974. It is based on an address delivered by Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan on April 13, 1974. Baisakhi Day is celebrated as the Anniversary of the day when Guru Gobind Singh first initiated five of his faithful disciples into the Khalsa (the Brotherhood of the Pure Ones.) This year, another historical event took place in Guru Ram Das Ashram in Los Angeles, when for the first time in history, an American Sikh participated in administering the Amrit to the nearly 100 Sikhs...

Yogi Bhajan Lecture: Changing Behavior Patterns

Excerpts from a lecture given by Yogi Bhajan on November 20, 1973 in Los Angeles, CA, USA. We have a pattern of sequences which is an unconscious act. You drive a car. You watch—sometimes your foot is on the accelerator, the other foot is relaxed. The car in front of you puts the brakes on and your foot—automatically without you doing anything—goes on the brake. It’s an automatic action. There is nothing whether you aim it or you don’t aim it. Why? Do the feet have eyes? Or is there a machine fixed with them that the brake lights...

Yogi Bhajan Lecture: Dwelling in the Heart Center

Excerpts from a lecture by Yogi Bhajan given on October 11, 1973 in San Francisco, CA Everybody on this Earth forgives. Forgiveness is the law of the heart center. The heart center, the fourth center of consciousness, is the center of totality. The prana cleans the blood, oxygenates the blood. The heart beats. All this happens in this ribcage. It is the center of compassion. If one can produce God on this Earth, it is only through compassion. If one can perform miracles, it is all the power of compassion. If one can sacrifice, it is also compassion. If one can be truthful, it...

Vibrate the Cosmos

Excerpts from a lecture by Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan, given at Oakland Community College, Farmington, Michigan, March 24, 1972 This evening I will touch on only one topic: Infinity of the human mind in relationship to his activity. Suppose you practice Sat Nam and you have satya—the basic energy to relate to that Infinity, then under any circumstances and under any impact on your subconscious, the sound current of Sat Nam should be automatic in you. If you can get up at 3:00 a.m. and you feel that you are part of the Cosmos and Cosmos is part of you, then you lean on the vibratory effect of...
