Yogi Bhajan, the consummate teacher

You cannot be set in your patterns because your impulse has to vibrate with another impulse. You have to be able to tune and adjust to the rate of that impulse. Life is like a car. You always have a steering wheel, but you just move it a little bit. A little bit, a little bit and keep yourself in the lane. You can't have a stiff steering wheel. If you lose time in making an adjustment, you pay through the nose.
Yogi Bhajan 10/3/1973

If a human being does not know how to be a human being, what advantage does he can gain by being human? If you cannot adjust the impulse of your brain, and if you cannot coordinate your impulse of the brain with the signal impulse of the other personality, how are you going to create a relationship? I have always said, "understand." "Stand under" if you want to live in harmony. Stand under each other. I understand you. You understand me. Stand under me. I stand under you. This is how life goes. Nobody can take advantage of you. Nobody can take advantage of me. People have the right to get into your holes. Block them well. Guard them well. There is no such thing as taking advantage of someone. Who takes advantage of who? There is a saying in Punjabi. "Guard your own house. Don't call others a thief."
Yogi Bhajan 10/3/1973

If every human being on this earth only wants to know himself, there will not be any problems. I know my limitations. I know my excesses. I know my beauty. I know my dullness. There cannot be a chance of creating a clash. But the reality is, we fly from our nest without knowing our destination. When the bird comes out of the nest without knowing the strength of his wings that creates problems.
Yogi Bhajan 10/3/1973

Life plays with you again and again. You play with life again and again. Simply, you don't let go of things. You lose the flexibility. Rigidity means no life. When you are dead, you become rigid. But when you have spirit, you are flowing. You are flexible. You are beautiful. Then you are, you are. That is the height of the ecstasy of consciousness. Just practice living it. Justifications, arguments and all those things don't work.
Yogi Bhajan 10/3/1973

Who is right and who is wrong? Don't get into that problem. See that you don't place any burden on yourself. Live light. Don't put the weight of karma on you. Let your impulse always be shining, adjusting and calling. Don't become uptight and don't put up any blocks. To put blocks against your own vibration is the worst thing you can do to yourself. Whosoever will do this to oneself shall never find the Self. The Light of God shall always show you the way. It's a very simple and very honest way of living on the earth.
Yogi Bhajan 10/3/1973

If your presence doesn't work, you do not work. Your presence is communication. Did you ever learn that? Your existence is your communication, and your projection is your relation. You are the power.
Yogi Bhajan

You are given a space of life in which you can innocently know your Unknown. That is the law of polarity. But instead of knowing your Unknown, you start knowing everybody else's Unknown. That is your problem. Nobody wants to know himself. Everybody wants to know everybody else. And that is where the whole problem is. Man is not born with problems. Man creates his own problems.
Yogi Bhajan 10/3/1973

The breath of life is a privilege. When you breathe consciously it gives you prosperity, it gives you projection, it gives you personality, because it adds to your aura and you can become bigger.
Yogi Bhajan 8/31/1982

The fact of life is that God has given you a lifespan at the rate of a proportion of breath. So you have to use your breath of life. Use it anyway you like, but at a particular time a switch will be off and you will be gone.
Yogi Bhajan 5/27/1981
                          

You are a total combination of ten (10) bodies. You have a () spiritual body, () mental negative, () mental positive, () mental neutral, () physical body, () arc body, which you call halo, () auric body, () subtle body, () pranic body, and () radiant body. And they are interlocked, but two are free to go. Whenever the soul desires to leave, the arc body and all other bodies remain behind. They have no combination. The pranic connection with the pranic body totally breaks and with the subtle body the soul leaves. That means your identity is gone.
Yogi Bhajan 5/27/1981 -- See Characteristics of The Ten Bodies.

Sadhana is a mental victory. Sadhana is a constitutional victory. Sadhana is a mental, spiritual, physical, auric, subtle all bodies victory and you have lot of bodies, you are a spiritual body, you are a mental body, you are a physical body, you are a auric body, you are radiant arc, radiant body, you are cosmic body, you have a magnetic field of complete body, how many you are? (See More.) And to put your scene together is putting your scene together. Therefore, there is no reason to live in guilt, the only way you can get rid of guilt is if you do Sadhana and do it Sadhana, Aradhana and Prabhupati that's the shortest path. Do Sadhana and do it the way you are told to do it and you will have a mastery over God and when you have mastery over God, who will write your account? That's why there is a redemption forgiveness and redemption for everybody but not at the same level of frequency.
Yogi Bhajan 11/29/1978

I tell you today and I’ll tell you tomorrow and I’ll tell you every day: You have only one friend – you and your discipline, which will give you all that you need. The rest are all promises. After studying every scripture of every religion and what I went through, I have found that there are three words: Sadhana, Aradhana, and Prabhupati. (Pati means husband. Prabhu means the God.) Sadhana means discipline, Aradhana means perfecting the discipline, and Prabhupati means you will become the Lord Master of God Itself.
Yogi Bhajan 7/20/1996

What is Sadhana? It is a process, which you do every day to grow, to be. There is a fight in this lifetime: to be or not to be. Nobody can destroy you... You destroy yourself by not being yourself.
Yogi Bhajan 7/05/1981

If you do not do the Sadhana, where will the spirit and strength come from to carry you through? Times are getting heavier, let your soul and your heart lift you through the fear and hallucinations of time and space into the infinite love and joy of God and Guru.
Yogi Bhajan 07/21/1981

Bio-Data of the Five Beloved Ones of Sri Guru Gobind Singh

If in subtlety you become very refined and in activity you become very subtle, you are very near to your soul because there is a direct relationship between the subtle body and the spiritual body. The spirit and the subtle body are very much related, they never leave each other. So anything which is refined—refined art, refined acts, refined speech which is not gross—will put you nearer to the soul. That is a rather a simple way of reaching your God consciousness.
Yogi Bhajan 5/27/1981

Love is the ultimate state of human behavior where compassion prevails and kindness rules.
Yogi Bhajan 7/7/1987

God gave everybody a special head. It was not a collective head in the center of town where you can put in something, get the wisdom and come back. You are complete by yourself. You are complete in your grace. You are a complete incarnation. Simply you should care to know who you are. There shall never be a problem if you call on yourself.
Yogi Bhajan 10/3/1973

There are three mantras you should never say: 1) I don't know. 2) I'm not ready. 3) I can't do it.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

Don't cause a cause for which you are not willing to have the effect. Sequence shall lead to consequence, so don't build that sequence whose consequence you are not willing to face.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

Do you understand that children have their own life, they have their own destiny? They have their own path of progression. If they have chosen you as parents it does not mean they are your slave. They have chosen you as parents and you have to pay the rent. You have to share with them your basic belief, your strength. If you don't have any strength you have nothing to share. If you care to share something, share your character. If you care to share, share your commitment. If you care to share, share your technique and ecstasy and strength through which your child can tomorrow be the strongest. Don't make them a ball of your emotions. You are cruel. These children have to be tomorrow, men and women by their own right. You are ruining that right today, because you have ruined yours.
Yogi Bhajan 3/6/1994

What is a great soul? A great soul is one who recognizes all other souls. A universal soul is that which has merged with every soul. There is a very delicate difference.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

What is a fear complex? When you feel limited. If you feel that you are a part of the universe and the universe is a part of you, what is there to fear?
Yogi Bhajan 1977

A holy man is one who sees sinner and saint alike. Saints are those who have the greatest compassion; a human being on the path of righteousness who has compassion is a saint.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

We come on this earth to go. We come in grace; therefore, we must go in grace. This is the highest power one has to achieve.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

If you cannot see God in all you cannot see God at all that is what I said. It sounds very good to hear but it is the most difficult thing to practice. And especially you who are in this congregation and around this congregation shall be failing if you do not teach your children to see God in all.
Yogi Bhajan 5/24/1992

Liberation is not that from this Earth you will go to God's kingdom. The kingdom of God is where you are, and liberation here is when you are a carefree and frank being.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

It is a normal thing in human behavior to be selfish. You can't get away from it, but you can channel it. Be selfish to the extent of being known as generous. Cater to the image to be selflessly serviceful to others.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

It is a simple thing: When you are attached, how can you be universal?
Yogi Bhajan 1977

Life has a message for everyone. Life provides an opportunity foe everyone. Fortunate are those who avail themselves of it, unfortunate are those who miss it.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

The truth is that a person never dies and the truth also is that a person never is alive. This is known as polarity of consciousness.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

It does not matter who you are, it only matters how you radiate. happiness does not come through materials, it comes through happiness.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

There are two ways of living. There are people who handle situations and there are people who are handled by situations.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

Who is a teacher? The answer is, he who is the best student is the best teacher.
You need to know how to calm down every uncalm situation. You must understand, the job we have to do in the future, which each one of you is expected to do and which requires the most extreme balance, is to calm down the environments.
Yogi Bhajan 7/3/1984

For every beautiful thing, you have to pass through a valley of hardship. There is no liberation without labor. There is no freedom, which is free. To create in you the power to create the intelligence, which will give you power to be effective in your own living and give you satisfaction in your own joy, you have to work for it, you have to earn it.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

God exalts the lowliest of the low and exalts him to the highest of the high to prove his existence.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

There is no future for those who relate to the past all the time, because the past is now and the future is now. You can wipe out yesterday; now you can figure out tomorrow. The activity to live now is called the highest achievement.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

Those who are humble in practice are always righteous in the face of God. They are protected by the Supreme Being and shall always live in plentiful abundance.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

Why can't you withdraw within yourself? The moment you go in, the light will go out because action has a reaction, equal and opposite. If you can understand the mystery of living, you can surmount time; otherwise, time will do what time has to do.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

This mind, from life, after life, after life, has built up dirt and blackness and it has become so dark that nothing can get through. What made the mind dirty? Uncommitted deeds. What can make it clean? Commitment!
Yogi Bhajan

It is a universal law that one follows the other; but what we want is one, and what we don't want is other. As rain is follow by sunshine, tragedy is follow by blessings, and blessings are followed by tragedy. It is a cycle. If you don't want blessings, don't want tragedies. If you want tragedies, want blessings also, because each must follow the other.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

If you do not understand that life is there to challenge you with every breath of life, you do not understand living. If you do not challenge your life yourself, somebody else will challenge it.
Yogi Bhajan 3/12/1989

If we are spiritually strong, we can do the impossible as possible.
Yogi Bhajan 8/23/1989

My prayer is that your mind will find confidence, your soul will find peace, you will find your life purpose and you will honor the sacred trust that comes with each breath.
Yogi Bhajan 12/17/1999

All your personal and financial problems are because you do not care for your spiritual strength. You have wasted energy on petty things. Cut out all that burns you out so that your light can keep burning forever.
Yogi Bhajan 10/16/1997

What is a meditation? It is a practice to fight negativity by self-control.
Yogi Bhajan 4/24/1997

If you appreciate your life, if you appreciate your job, if you appreciate yourself, if you appreciate your surroundings--poor or rich, whatever they are--you are divine. The principle is that you are divine when you appreciate whatever you are. You must appreciate your job, no matter how dirty it is. You must appreciate your misery no matter how painful it is. The moment you start appreciating misery it will run away. You don't have to do anything. Misery does not need appreciation. Misery needs to give you pain. The purpose of misery is to put you through pain. As soon as you start appreciating misery, its purpose is lost. How is misery going to be there?
Yogi Bhajan 6/27/1984 (Woman's Camp)

You know those bumper stickers that say, " Have you hugged your kids today?" I think we should have a 3HO bumper sticker that say, "Have you hugged your soul today?" Have you talked to yourself today? We totally ignore our identity. And we deny our identity to ourselves. We want to please everybody for everything and not ourselves. Then we have mental problems. We get burnt out. We get tired. We get frustrated. We get depressed. Why not? We must now start to learn to remove our body blocks and let the mind understand that we don't have only a body, we have a mind of our own, and we have a soul of our own. And our body, mind and soul make our identity. We cannot just cater to our physical body.
Yogi Bhajan 9/17/1984

What is higher consciousness and what is lower consciousness? Anything, which relates to self at the cost of others, is lower consciousness. Anything where self is sacrificed for the cost of others is higher consciousness.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

My soul, bless me, be with me. Energize me so I can face the world with the strength of the spirit. Save me from duality, give me the reality and royalty so I can face my world in peace and tranquility. May this journey of life be completed with love and affection, kindness and compassion for all living things.
Yogi Bhajan 1/23/1998

We believe the strength of the man is in the challenge: the higher the challenge, the higher the man's capacity to meet it, the higher is his achievement in life. Challenge is not something that destroys you; challenge is something that gives you an experience.
Yogi Bhajan 1979

God is not outside you. He is within you, and feel Him within you, so when you lie, just understand, the guy is hearing it. When you are doing something, which is mean, God doesn’t like to tell you but He knows it. It is that sensitivity of knowledge which you have to achieve. It doesn’t matter how powerful or expensive a car may be, if it doesn’t have brakes, an accident is inevitable. If your mind doesn’t know how to stop within the psyche of the circumstances of the flow… to create a universe and unisonness in you—you have not learned to live as a human.
Yogi Bhajan 9/23/2002

You have to live like gods; you have to be universal. You have to go and serve people. You have to spread hope and give them hope! God will do the rest, I can assure you. But go and give them hope. Let them not kill themselves.
Yogi Bhajan 1974

Society is feeling a great impact and requires comfort from anybody who can give it. The greatest thing on this earth is to serve the people of God. That is the highest act a man can do for any other man, but it has to be positive, not that you can go help somebody and you go and drag yourself down and get into the pit yourself. You have to be very firm, very honest, very constant, very insistent and very persuasive. In spite of that you have to be very sweet, very kind, very serviceful and very righteous. These things go together.
Yogi Bhajan 1974

The whole world may give you support...but if your own mind does not support you, you will not be in a position to do anything in life. Your own mind cannot be controlled and guided and give you the support until it is brought to a discipline. That word which brings a mind to a discipline to support you is called "Mantra". Man - Tra, to bring discipline to the mind. That is why we do Japa (repitition of Mantra-Bani). Japa creates the heat. That is called Tapa; Tapa, the heat that burns the karma. Out of the karma grows kindness, and it becomes Dharma. Out of that grows the compassion. That is called "Sidhi", that is called "power". From that comes the word "Sadhu" who has controlled himself through all aspects of life and that is what we call "Sadhana" (Spiritual Practice). Which, you do not normally want to do. How many of you are doing regular Sadhana?
Yogi Bhajan 6/25/1987

The greatest thing, which we do not want to remember, is that we have destiny and we have fate. We have debts and credits from previous incarnations. It does not matter in what lifetime you did what. In a human life you can pay consciously. In an emotional life you have to pay unconsciously.
Yogi Bhajan

You have to have an understanding that you are like a lotus flower in a pool of mud. You are not to let your leaves get dirty with it.
Yogi Bhajan 7/28/2002

When the breath of life becomes short, you become short-tempered. When the breath of life becomes long and deep, you understand who you are.
Yogi Bhajan 6/8/1983

When we are not spiritually strong, we can't negotiate properly. When we are not mentally strong, we do not have the grit to continue to negotiate. Then we build more guns and bombs.
Yogi Bhajan 5/28/1984

We do not understand that the most important aspect of a human is the consciousness. We do not have the power of commitment if we do not have consciousness. We do not have the power of conception if we do not have consciousness. And when we do not have consciousness, we do not have basic intuition.
Yogi Bhajan

Meditation is only to become intuitive. It is not emotional, it is not sentimental, it is not attached. It is a basic reality of life.
Yogi Bhajan 3/9/1998


Love that shrinks is not love, it is passion. Love endures the endurable.
Yogi Bhajan 12/22/1987

You can run after satisfaction all over the world, but satisfaction must come from within you.
Yogi Bhajan 2/8/1990

Man is so weak that he has not created a universal system. All he has created is a political system. A political system is an outright system where a bunch of people rules other people. As long as a bunch of people will rule other people, God shall never become our ruler. As long as people will rule people, it will be difficult for mankind to realize that God is our ultimate ruler.
Yogi Bhajan 11/18/1984

All sickness, all shallowness, all pain, all miseries are the outcome of one source: keeping negativity within yourself.
Yogi Bhajan

Subconscious anger can completely and totally destroy your mind. When your mind is destroyed by your subconscious, then you have only one thing with which to help yourself, and that is ego. Because you have no friend, you have no energy. You cannot keep yourself together. And when you deal with life with ego, then you are a rebel, then you do not flow with the flow. Then the hassle in life starts. Then you’ll sweat and stink.
Yogi Bhajan 7/1983

God only gave you breath of life. When you use it to recite a mantra, you make yourself positive, pure and your vibration is very penetrating.
Yogi Bhajan 6/8/1994

The day we believe in the subtlety of life, all of our problems will be solved, for subtlety can reach out and fill every gap.
Yogi Bhajan 9/28/2002

When you put a foot on Earth, God says 'Thank you.' You are a walking identity of God's creativity. You cannot deny that. Why create insanity? Who invited you to do that? Don't feel guilty. Just get awakened. Just wake up. Start exerting your divinity. It's your birthright. Learn this rule: God who created you shall create for you everything when you exert your divinity. God who created you will give you nothing when you exert your duality.
Yogi Bhajan 7/4/1996

The attitude of gratitude is the highest way of living, and is the biggest truth, the highest truth. You cannot live with applied consciousness until you understand that you have to be grateful for what you have. If you are grateful for what you have, then Mother Nature will give you more.
Yogi Bhajan


I tell you today and I’ll tell you tomorrow and I’ll tell you every day: You have only one friend – you and your discipline, which will give you all that you need. The rest are all promises. After studying every scripture of every religion and what I went through, I have found that there are three words: Sadhana, Aradhana, and Prabhupati. Sadhana means discipline, Aradhana means perfecting the discipline, and Prabhupati means you will become the Lord Master of God Itself.
Yogi Bhajan 7/20/1996

Human love is for one thing only; to love your soul. Then the Infinite world around you will be in love with you.
Yogi Bhajan

There’s no substitution for victory. And there’s no equal to nobility–noble dress, noble behavior, noble conduct, noble code, noble appearance, noble jewelry, noble virtues, noble everything. We decided to belong to purity. We brought our dress to the standard of purity and we are trying to bring our conduct to purity. We want to be pure. We want to have a meditative mind. That’s why we do Sadhana (Spiritual Practice). I am explaining to you that emotions are like little waves, which don’t carry you anywhere, but nobility is like the trade winds. It will take you where you belong.
Yogi Bhajan 7/1992

Origin of everything is God, everything comes from God, everything goes to God. Everything belongs to God. It never belongs to individual. You all have to die, you all have to be born to die, you have come to go. That's called Ava-Gavan. We come to go. If we remember that and we are good, then we know where we are going. Otherwise we don't. We just die. Miserable.
Yogi Bhajan 12/10/1990

With God's grace in past incarnations you earned this life you earned this human body. It is pre-paid and pre-earned. Everything in this life is given to you as it is. You have earned it with your devotion, with your meditation, and with your good deeds. So be content.
Yogi Bhajan

Why not play one game to become timeless and one with God? That is the game of how you recognize and love your own deep truth in life. When you can play just one game that is boundless in time and space, then all others stop. The measure of the game is how near you are to your own truth, to the reality in your soul.
Yogi Bhajan

With God's grace in past incarnations you earned this life you earned this human body. It is pre-paid and pre-earned. Everything in this life is given to you as it is. You have earned it with your devotion, with your meditation, and with your good deeds. So be content.
Yogi Bhajan

The ideal marriage is a way of life in which a husband and wife compromise to face the time and space together for the security of their own lives and their children's.
Yogi Bhajan 1/2/1977

Lord God, give me love so I can flow in the love of all. Give me wisdom so I can be kind to all. Give me courage that I can serve all.
Yogi Bhajan

The greatest art is to sit, and wait, and let it come.
Yogi Bhajan

The greatest reward of doing Sadhana (Spiritual Practice) is that the person becomes incapable of being defeated. Sadhana is a self-victory, and it is a victory over time and space. When you get up for Sadhana, you defeat a part of yourself because you don’t want to get up. Getting up is a victory over time, and doing it is a victory over space. That is what Sadhana is. Sadhana is only for you-it is a self-victory…Sadhana is an answer to every misfortune, and who wants to see you in misfortune? Sadhana is not a matter of advantages and miseries, misfortunes and handicaps. It is a very personal thing, which does not relate to anybody except yourself.
Yogi Bhajan

You within you is the strength of God. You within you is the flow of life. You within you is pure truth and pure light of God. Therefore, always intuitively face life as you, not as the victim of circumstances.
Yogi Bhajan 7/18/1984

When you love, you trust each other. When you don't, you don't. Don't camouflage the word "love" and not trust each other."
Yogi Bhajan 4/5/1994

Do you know what love is? Love is an absolute power of self-totality. Love is not what you think love is. Love is a strength. Love is a goodness, like Godliness. There is no limit to it. There is no shortage in it. There is no bargaining in it. Where there is love, there is no question. Where there is a question, there is no love. Then it becomes a business. So love is the totality of the self. My dear folks, if you cannot find yourself, you can never find anybody you want to find.
Yogi Bhajan 4/5/1994

Happy New Year! "Peace of mind, peace of heart, peace in the world, peace among all nations is the need of the day. Without peace there can be no prosperity, love, affection, and prosperous family. Peace has a price, which we have to pay. Kindness and service is the way.
Yogi Bhajan's New Year's message, 1998

A Yatra is a journey on earth to one’s isht, one’s higher self, one’s altar, so destiny may not be altered, and one can travel to the destiny. Walk on land with one’s feet where all the great men’s feet have already walked. It is a self-purification.
Yogi Bhajan

I don’t care what your circumstances and environments are, if you can change your daily average pressure by balancing it in the morning with Sadhana, and once a week, come to Gurdwara in a meditative, graceful, beautiful and pleasant fashion, then I don’t think there is any possibility that you can be destroyed.
Yogi Bhajan 7/08/1979

Where there is forgiveness, there is God. Where there is sacrifice, there is compassion. And where there is service, there is the radiance of the human. Is there anything more precious in a human being than these objectives?
Yogi Bhajan

A spiritual marriage is a process of amalgamation whereby the man and woman eventually become merged, retaining all of their individual strengths, while complimenting each other, supporting each other and covering for each other’s weaknesses.
Yogi Bhajan

There is no criterion in life that will carry a marriage, or satisfy the marriage, except your creative communication with the person you love.
Yogi Bhajan

You have the capacity such that through your presence God can be felt—no miracle is required.
Yogi Bhajan 8/1/1982

Where there is forgiveness, there is God. Where there is sacrifice, there is compassion. And where there is service, there is the radiance of the human. Is there anything more precious in a human being than these objectives?
Yogi Bhajan

With the most corrupt person, you can be honest; with the most angry person, you can be cool; and with the most insulting person, you can be graceful. If the balance of your personality and your sensitivity can remain under your control and your projection, you have learned the art of living.
Yogi Bhajan

You must understand when somebody talks to you, if you are not willing to hear them out, you are foolishly going for an unsuccessful future. The first principle of success is, when somebody is talking. Hear it. Don't interrupt. Let him complete the sentence; hear him properly. When they are done and you are asked to speak, do not answer the question if you cannot uplift the person. If your answer uplifts that person, you shall be prosperous.
Yogi Bhajan

We do not feel that we have to raise our children for tomorrow. Child is born to us innocent, child is born to us for love, child is given to us in trust of God. You see how we break the trust of God. Our own chemistry doesn't meet, our own situation falls apart, our own things are stupid and we break the heart of the child. You are just parents, you just pay the rent. Forget about everything else. God has given them their destiny and dignity. Let them be who they are. If you can't help, get out.
Yogi Bhajan 12/11/1988

The greatest beauty in you is that if you become sacred, your price will go up. If you want to protect your future, never act cheap. If you want to be free, never control anything—it will drag you to death. If you want to be respected, never nag. And if you want to be loved, then deliver. Let your words mean what you say.
Yogi Bhajan 7/4/1995

Grace will come to you. Glory will come to you. Happiness will come to you. Everything will come to you when you will act like God. God gives, never takes anything. God loves everyone. God lives in you. God guards you.
Yogi Bhajan

The challenge of the times is upon each of us. Those blessed with a spiritual life and reliance upon God will have the capacity to rise and flourish. It is common to spiritual pathways to give time to meditation, prayer and chanting God's name. This nurtures our consciousness, compassion, and kindness as human beings and makes us generous in our acts and deeds. We give of our consciousness and we give of our earnings. The act of giving creates an opening from the heart and soul unparalleled by any other.
Yogi Bhajan

The power of prayer can bring peace to the earth and peace to the heart.
Yogi Bhajan

Nobility is such a virtue. You can conquer the whole world with it. It is a code of conduct to be noble. Nobility is self-determination to not be corrupt. It is a self-declaration.
Yogi Bhajan

Forgiveness is the highest performance of the elevated consciousness. There is a kindness of nature and a direct approach to life. There is no deficiency and no depression. It makes a man dedicate himself.
Yogi Bhajan

If you want to do something and you have the courage to do something, then do it when it is impossible. Whosoever makes the impossible possible is rewarded. What is a hero? That man who makes the impossible possible.
Yogi Bhajan 1975

Our children are to be morally, ethically, physically flawless. The world has to follow them. These children have to walk themselves. If you cannot make them strong and deep rooted, and get in them the character like iron, you do not have affection for them.
Yogi Bhajan 6/22/2001

If we consider that physical health is the sustainer of life, then mental health may be considered as the real essence of life
Yogi Bhajan 1975

Your reliability will give people the courage to trust you. Their trust will give you the power to carry a situation. A leader carries and serves people. Learn to lead as a "Seva" (to sacrifice your time and resources for the benefit of others without wanting anything in return); people will love you, and you will continue to expand.
Yogi Bhajan 2/20/2004

My soul, bless me, be with me. Energize me so I can face the world with the strength of the spirit. Save me from duality, give me the reality and royalty so I can face my world in peace and tranquility. May this journey of life be completed with love and affection, kindness and compassion for all living things.
Yogi Bhajan 1/23/1998

The decisive conscience inner self is that creative inner self which gets seeded into the being and flowers into happiness through all action. Just as we can extend ourselves through our credit economy, we can creatively expand ourselves to the very extension of our divinity.
Yogi Bhajan 9/29/1977

Give your worries, pain, misfortune, anything, to God, and take happiness, joy, and smiles
back to your home.
Yogi Bhajan

Love yourself. Love your soul and let go of the past. Past pain is keeping you in pain. You don't have to deteriorate.
Yogi Bhajan

When a mother is pregnant, the kind of soul she can accept depends on her mental attitude. And then there is another beauty that within the realm of your belly, which is your pregnancy, you can totally transform the soul. The soul is pure and has nothing to do, but the subtle body carries the karma of the previous life. A mother can totally purify the subtle body of the new child.
Yogi Bhajan Women’s Camp 1976

By construction, the fulfillment of a woman is motherhood—and motherhood does not mean that she gets pregnant and delivers a baby. If you understand her total behavior, you will understand her motherhood. Her motherhood is service, her motherhood is sacrifice, her motherhood is relationship. When she knows motherhood, she is fulfilled.
The Teachings of Yogi Bhajan p.28

Men cannot stop the Third World War. It is not in their cells. But women can. A man can love a child, but he doesn't go through the labor pain. The solutions on this Earth are not in the hands of men. The solutions on this Earth are in the hands of the woman, in the psyche of the woman.
Yogi Bhajan 7/10/1986

You are the first teacher. You are the first introduction. Can you deny it? What a mother teaches a child in the womb cannot be learned on the Earth. That's why I ask you, after 120 days, just to meditate. Soul has entered. Walk and meditate, Charan Japa Kriya (meditation recommended for expectant parents. Walk 3 miles together daily, chanting ‘Wha Hay Guru,’ one step per syllable).
Yogi Bhajan 6/28/1994

Find happiness within you. Find an attitude of gratitude. Be happy with what God has given you. Then all happiness will find you, because birds of the same feather flock together. If you are happy, happiness will come to you, because happiness wants to go where happiness is.
Yogi Bhajan

Human love is for one thing only, to love your soul. Then the Infinite world around you will be in love with you.
Yogi Bhajan

Without love, there is no God. Without love, there's no spirit. Without love, there's no prosperity. Without love, there's no sincerity. Without love, there's no growth in you. There is no happiness without love. Love is the key to everything you are in and you are out. Love is a total state of mind of tolerance. Total tolerance is love. Love has no limit. When it has a limit, then it is not love.
Yogi Bhajan

Communication, like a road, is already mapped. And every communication has to have an indication in it as to whom you are dealing with. Are you dealing with a person of authority, a person of love, a person of shallow relationship, an acquaintance? You must gear yourself before you even utter one word.
Yogi Bhajan

When a child is born, it is felt that this child is mine or ours. There is a responsibility to train a child to be full-fledged human; but in my way or in our way, that is the tragedy. Every child has its own destiny, own way of life, and own growth. When that is barred or demarked or different, child is destroyed, and we are all destroyed children.
Yogi Bhajan 2/10/1993

The urge of giving only comes in when God wants to give to you… God invokes in you something to give to others, so that there may be some empty space where God can send a better gift.
Yogi Bhajan 2/5/1989

Middle-aged crisis come from the fear of being old. Instead of being joyful about maturity, people start getting scared of being old.
Yogi Bhajan 6/11/1990

The very 'in' feeling, when two people are merged, means that then, there are not two beings. Then why to cheat? Why to defend? Why to talk? Why to argue? These arguments, these defenses, these reasons, these situations are only when the One is not found in the oneness of one's own mind. Then you have to structure defense mechanisms.
Yogi Bhajan 1975

Our fears are there to spoil our lives. It is not you who betray the soul. It is your fear, which betrays the soul. Fear is earthly, and has nothing to do with the heavens. Your fear is that you must hassle, and only you can make it. It is never true, never was, nor is, nor shall be. The guiding hand in this world is the hand of God.
Yogi Bhajan

What is prosperity for a woman? It is when she expands herself, her goodwill, her good manners, her smiles, her counseling, and her uplifting. Prosperity is all good things. Whenever a woman puts all good things together, prosperity and abundance are assured. But if she wastes her time in bitterness, poverty is assured.
Yogi Bhajan 6/26/2001

There is a system called recharging yourself and you have got to know that. When your inner vitality fails, your virtues fall apart. If you do not breath consciously for 11 minutes a day, you lose 40% of the vitality of life. This 40% you cannot recapture by any medicine or any exercise. But if you do breath consciously for 11 minutes and make it very long, deep and slow, that can do exactly what no miracle can do, because your life is based on the breath of life.
Yogi Bhajan 6/17/1992

The law of consciousness is that everything is nothing but consciousness - then to live for achieving higher consciousness means making a promise to be conscious of all facts, of now and then, of ever and ever. It is a pledge and a dedication.
Yogi Bhajan 1975

The radiance of your spirit can be measured according to how the name of God vibrates within you and around you. If your Sadhana (Spiritual Practice) is perfect, your spirit will be high. If you have forgotten to chant the Name of God, you will be in the doldrums. If you become low and depressed, it is only because you have not warmed up your machine in the morning; you have not done your Spiritual Practice…In the Western world where there is such a criss-cross of mental thought patterns, you must find a way to bring your mind under control. You must learn to bring the level of yourself to zero, whenever you like. This is practiced in Sadhana. Remember, you are you and you are not you. You are you in the frame of the defined finite, but you are not you, in the frame of the Infinite.
Yogi Bhajan

Where there is forgiveness, there is God. Where there is sacrifice, there is compassion. And where there is service, there is the radiance of the human. Is there anything more precious in a human being than these objectives?
Yogi Bhajan

Sadhana we do only so that we can be clear headed...Sadhana is a test of self-grit. If your Sadhana is more important than your neurosis, you are fine. If your neurosis is more important than your Sadhana you are not. Doesn’t matter how saintly you are, nobody wants to get up in the ambrosial hours. Why you still do it is a mystery. At that time, between 3 and 6 o’clock, the rays of the sun pass at 60 degrees and you want to feel relaxed. You take a cold shower, wake up and meditate. Why do you repeat the mantra hundreds of times? To create a stamina, an absolute mental stamina. Without that there is no chance for the life to be smooth. If somebody refuses to exercise, nobody can force him. But at that one moment in life when that person needs physical stamina, it won’t be there. Sadhana is what your mental stamina requires. Love is what your spiritual stamina requires.
Yogi Bhajan

I tell you today and I’ll tell you tomorrow and I’ll tell you every day: You have only one friend – you and your discipline, which will give you all that you need. The rest are all promises. After studying every scripture of every religion and what I went through, I have found that there are three words: Sadhana, Aradhana, and Prabhupati. Sadhana means discipline, Aradhana means perfecting the discipline, and Prabhupati means you will become the Lord Master of God Itself.
Yogi Bhajan 7/20/1996

You have to understand the purpose of life. The purpose of life is to do something, which will live forever.
Yogi Bhajan

God told Guru Gobind Singh, 'Go and establish a path of righteousness. Let the human Worship the Undying Being, The Akaal Purkh, not the dying being.' Jesus said not to worship idols yet I have never seen a single church where he is not hanging on the cross outside. Is that not an idol? Moses said to love all and worship one God, yet Jews feel they are the special chosen beings and everybody else is out. The Hindus were told to see God in everything. Their God is in their temple, sleeps at a certain time and gets up at a certain time. Otherwise everything goes berserk. That is the hypocrisy of religion.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

Religion is not a documentation of rules and dos and don’ts. Religion is my own life conducted by me. It is my conduct, my personality, and my reality. It is my truth, my light, my prosperity, my happiness, and my totality.
Yogi Bhajan

By giving from the heart, we reconnect to that source, elevating our soul and fulfilling our destiny. The psyche of giving is very simple, but difficult to understand.
Yogi Bhajan

Be competent. Do not show that you are scared. Do not show you are irrational. Over and above that, never ever let anyone know that you are not willing to listen. Listen patiently, reply promptly, answer effectively and be in command. That is the price of living. And the best thing is, speak moderately, politely.
Yogi Bhajan

Your Infinity is you when you stop thinking. Have you stopped thinking? That’s the end of it. Awareness takes these things away from you: thinking, reason, logic, argument, fantasies, planning, scheming, knowing and worrying. These nine things must go before you can say that you are on the path of awareness. Do you know why? Because the One who rotates the Earth can take care of your routine. These nine things you do are unwanted. They only satisfy your ego. Where there is ego, there is no amigo.
Yogi Bhajan 7/20/1996

The first stage of higher consciousness is the state of equilibrium where neither praise inflates you nor slander depresses you. You may love the praise but you offer it at the altar of your Creator. You may dislike slander but you offer it at the altar of your Creator. A person who lives in this state is super-sensitive therefore he is grateful. This attitude of gratitude makes a person great.
Yogi Bhajan

There is no intimacy without compassion. There is no love without compassion. There is no community without compassion. It is caring and compassion; the rest is all a joke. Never be selfish-be caring, be compassionate, be kind.
Yogi Bhajan

I don't care what your circumstances and environments are, if you can change your daily average pressure by balancing it in the morning with Sadhana (Spiritual Practice), and once a week, come to Gurdwara (Temple) in a meditative, graceful, beautiful and pleasant fashion, then I don't think there is any possibility that you can be destroyed.
Yogi Bhajan 7/8/1979

Compassion is for the very strong. Compassion does not come to the weak. People who are unkind, bullies, use rude language, are not strong people. They are very weak people.
Yogi Bhajan 7/31/1987

Never be right or wrong, always be neutral. Speak not through the positive mind or the negative mind, but from the neutral mind.
Yogi Bhajan

This Dharma is not personal. It is not anybody's property; it is not anybody's affair. It is a combination of people who will work for the future. It's the strength of the people who conquer their own mind. It shall belong to those who will work selflessly for the beauty of tomorrow and its generations.
Yogi Bhajan 10/8/1998

Dharma is when we take action to uplift and serve others. Seva (selfless service) is our Dharma. Doing Seva we will receive abundance a thousand fold.
Yogi Bhajan 8/26/1996

When will joins the ego, it makes you fanatic. And when will joins your lower consciousness it makes you depressed. When will joins you, it makes you divine.
Yogi Bhajan 5/24/1982

Let us be kind and gentle to the fact of reality that God is never going to abandon the planet Earth. Therefore the Creator is not going to abandon creation and the creatures. Let us start our today with ecstasy of consciousness and feeling of oneness with God and with each other. Let us make a resolution that each day we'll say little bit good-bye to insecurity and we'll rely on security little bit more. And that each day, that little bit in a small way, shall go all the way. In the end you will find it is multiplied by 365. That many days there are. But if you're really smart, do it by the hour. If you think you are really smart, do it by the minute. And if you have a real computer consciousness, do it by the second.
Yogi Bhajan

As long as you think that a man needs you for such and such, it is a business; then there is a profit and a loss. When the relationship is established with no profit and no loss, then you both have understood each other.
Yogi Bhajan

Where there is forgiveness, there is God. Where there is sacrifice, there is compassion. And where there is service, there is the radiance of the human. Is there anything more precious in a human being than these objectives?
Yogi Bhajan

The only way a relationship between you and God can be established is if you become grateful and build up a standard of gratitude. Only then will fulfillment come in life. Only then can you be happy in life. Only then will you be fulfilled in life. Because in God we trust and in God we dwell.
Yogi Bhajan

Your ego is not your owner. Don't forget the owner of the whole thing is God Himself, the spirit, the breath of life. Your ego is not your owner.
Yogi Bhajan

Neither an appearance is bad nor an act is bad; it is the bad intention which is the problem. Bad intentions are cunning devices.
Yogi Bhajan

Lord God, give me love so I can flow in the love of all. Give me wisdom so I can be kind to all. Give me courage that I can serve all.
Yogi Bhajan

When a totally complete, comfortable, happy man touches an unhappy man, he brings happiness. Life is a sharing. We share our sorrows and we share our happiness. And if somebody is in sorrow, and we pour our happiness into that person, we make him happy. For that we need clarity of the mind. We need the strength of the soul. We need enlargement of our point of view. We need tolerance. We need courage.
Yogi Bhajan 10/11/1989

Remember, if your presence doesn't work, your words will not work, and your interest, strength, wealth, and position will not work. What should work is your presence.
Yogi Bhajan

Make meditation the art of life. Make meditation the science of life. Because only with that, and with that only, you can develop intuition.
Yogi Bhajan 7/20/1978

If you choose to live in your excellence, then you must take responsibility for yourself. You must recognize the capacity of your mind, acknowledge yourself, and direct that relationship. You need a simple mind. You need the capacity for innocence before your own soul. You need warmth of heart and clarity of head.
Yogi Bhajan

Our birthday is coming, Baisakhi is coming! It's not a birthday of me and you; it's a birthday of all of us. It's a birthday of the Khalsa. Let us celebrate us! It's a birthday of the purity. It's a birthday from Guru Nanak to Guru Gobind Singh. It's a birthday of Siri Guru Granth Sahib, the present guiding Guru. So please understand the reality of life and concentrate, meditate and act and create the environments in which you can reach to the stage of experience of purity.
Yogi Bhajan, April 8, 1990

Understand Guru Nanak's words, Ek Ong Kaar, "The universe is created by the One, and you are part of that One." Have patience and wait. Things will start happening. All prosperity is based on opportunity, though you believe opportunity has to be caught. But it will only happen when the Hand of the Creator is behind it, not when you involve your ego. The ultimate knowledge of the Age of Aquarius is that purkha is the source of prakriti. Chanting Ajai Alai with this mudra is like releasing an arrow from a bowstring. Without this mudra it is like throwing an arrow with the hand. This mudra makes a heavenly difference.
Yogi Bhajan, April 30th, 2001

Prayer is a way to purify oneself, prayer is a mission, a finite can reach infinity through the power of prayer, and what is a curse? Opposite to prayer is a curse. Curse is when we make mockery of any of our prayer, or anybody’s prayer. In the Aquarian Age, prayer is a constant motivation.
Yogi Bhajan 1977

Subconscious anger can completely and totally destroy your mind. When your mind is destroyed by your subconscious, then you have only one thing with which to help yourself, and that is ego. Because you have no friend, you have no energy. You cannot keep yourself together. And when you deal with life with ego, then you are a rebel, then you do not flow with the flow. Then the hassle in life starts. Then you’ll sweat and stink.
Yogi Bhajan 7/1983

When you are gentle, you don't step on your own self. Gentle means, "everlasting self-respect, self-prestige." Gentle people are those who understand who they are no matter what, and that mostly includes personal pressure. A gentleman is one who has total control of all his senses. Senses cannot misguide him. Emotions cannot blind him, and desires cannot pull him. That is gentle. Gentle is when you are super kind to your identity as a woman.
Yogi Bhajan 7/18/1984

Do you know why we suffer? Because we manipulate things. We are manipulators. But if we manipulate just one thing, if we make just one simple manipulating effort -- that we shall elevate everybody, then we all shall be elevated ourselves.
Yogi Bhajan 7/25/1996

Meditative mind tells you about your mind, projected mind, polarized mind, inductive mind, deductive mind, subconscious mind, super subconscious mind, interrelated mind, correlated mind, and polarized mind. Mind is like an onion, it has so many boxes and so many layers and until the whole thing is not understood you do not understand that you have thought form and when you do not understand your thought form you do not understand your desire. When you do not understand desire you do not understand your commotion. You do not understand your commotion, you do not understand your emotion. And then emotion trace to neurosis and neurosis to pattern, pattern takes you to unhappiness, it is a simple delivery channel. And all this has to be known. And the only science which can give you authority, sensitivity and probe into mind is the art of meditation.
Yogi Bhajan 10/23/1978

Hate nobody; love everybody. It won’t cost you anything. Love never costs anything. Love is the most selfish act. It gives you so much protection, grace, and radiance. It doesn’t give you any smallness or suffering. The attitude of conscious living is to love and give grace to someone worthy of your trust. Do not seek anything from people. Give love instead, and rely on God.
Yogi Bhajan 5/2008

What is a fear complex? When you feel limited. If you feel that you are a part of the universe and the universe is a part of you, what is there to fear?
Yogi Bhajan 1977

A rose's fragrance is so powerful, it makes you want to smell it. Your grace has to be so powerful, that people want to feel it.
Yogi Bhajan

When you face today with courage, with dignity, with grace, and the word of the Guru (spiritual teacher), your prayers will be answered, because you'll become the prayer.
Yogi Bhajan 6/27/1993

Sing a song with a perfect blast. It's such a beautiful emotional release, you will always be grateful to yourself. It is a perfect way to live sane; it is the best way to confront insanity.
Yogi Bhajan 11/22/1977

All this makeup, your attraction, your beauty, which does not modify and model you as a graceful woman, is an invitation to exploitation. Do you understand it as a woman? You attract him, have him, get him, then what? Attract him again, get him again, attract him again, get him again. Let him come. If he will come, he will never go. When a man walks to the grace of a woman, he can never walk away.
Yogi Bhajan 7/31/1984

It's not important what you say; it's important what somebody hears when you speak. It is important how the inner ear sends the signal and how the body language correlates. If the body language and your words are the same, the other will hear it clearly and will understand perfectly.
Yogi Bhajan 9/9/1995

Children are full-fledged people with high potency antennae, which record every vibration within their vicinity completely and very deeply.
Yogi Bhajan 7/20/1976

Give us strength. Encourage us in spirit. Elevate us in radiance so we can be healthy, happy, holy and blessed with the bliss of our life and love so that we can smile, communicate and be as a spirit shining in Thy name to all human beings. Sat Nam.
Yogi Bhajan

Prayer is not only what you say or utter. Prayer really means attention. When you, your soul and your mind, pay attention. That is called prayer.
Yogi Bhajan 12/1/1986

God is everything. What is God? Your excellence. Your God is your excellence, your inner being, your soul, your spirit, your Self. God is nowhere to be found. You are God. God couldn’t create anything better than you. If you can find yourself, you have found God, right there and then.
Yogi Bhajan 6/25/1984

Our main job is to be together and inspire each other to reach for the golden light. Let us be one in the oneness of each other. Love and reach out, make life happy...live with these words deep in your heart.
Yogi Bhajan 9/2006

Man was not prepared to do yoga. Hatha yoga? My God! Just stretch like this for two hours and one hour like this. I have done that, and it is too much for me. I can't handle sweating like that. You can run three miles and sweat like a water tank, no big deal. But mental energy has to be controlled, and it has to be controlled by the breath, air -- pavan. Pavan is the power. The breath of life is the power, and Shabad is the word. Word is the air, and word represents air.
Yogi Bhajan 1/10/1989

The pelvic bone is where the breath of life is triggered and where the breathing power of the pranic body is found. The lungs are cleansing processors, the diaphragm is an aid to that process, and it is through the spinal column that the energy flows.
Yogi Bhajan

There is a constitutional law to being a mother: first be a woman, then be a graceful woman, then become a very, very, very, very graceful person. Bearing a child is not a human’s job; bearing a child is totally a divine, divine, divine job. From 120 day (of pregnancy) until the day of delivery, whatever you put in through prayer is going to come out.
Yogi Bhajan 7/5/1977

You must understand and learn to be a woman if you want to live as a woman. You can never win by ego and you can never sell yourself. Therefore, to be you, you have to find you within you, and on that ground you have to project. Project what? The only thing you can project is that you are good forever. There is nothing in you more permanent than your own grace. There is nothing more powerful in you than your own wisdom.
Yogi Bhajan 7/31/1984

Spiritual maturity begins with the seed planted in our destiny. It is nurtured by a series of teachers and watered by the wisdom each brings to us, a wisdom which is less a philosophy as it is a combination of consciousness and intelligence that lets us face the challenges brought by each stage of our development. In that challenge and answer of life we come to recognize our self, honor our self and deliver our self in relationship.
Yogi Bhajan

The man and woman play different roles in the relationship. She holds the spirituality and depth. She carries the relationship through the storms and battles of time and space. When her conscious and subconscious minds are stable, stability for the couple is created.
Yogi Bhajan

Inhale deeply with reverence, love, compassion, and kindness. Communicate with your breath that it must give you peace of mind, peace on the mother planet Earth, peace and oneness with God and His creation.
Yogi Bhajan 5/13/1992

Mankind is still seeking to find the peace within so it can have peace without. There shall not be peace in the world if there is no peace in the heart of the man. There is not going to be peace in your heart if you do not understand and experience your very relationship with your soul.
Yogi Bhajan 5/19/1989

Your life is not a hassle. All you have to do is find the values. That is so important because if you have not found the values for yourself as a parent, you cannot find them for your son, your grandson, your neighbor, anybody.
Yogi Bhajan

If I love somebody, then I have no question to ask, no answer to listen for. Love is beyond questions and answers, love is beyond give and take --nobody has taken anything, nobody has given anything. Love is beyond time and space, love is Infinity; love is God in itself.
Yogi Bhajan 10/16/1973

Prayer is the only power we have. It is my personal individual belief that prayer can change the Universe. Politics and power cannot.
Yogi Bhajan 12/14/1977

What I am trying to tell you is that the very deep feeling, the expression that a woman enjoys, which to her is very relaxing, very creative, very relevant, is when she believes and understands in her depth that she has found a man who, in the depth of her heart, she can trust his wisdom.
Yogi Bhajan (Man to Man)

You must understand and learn to be a woman if you want to live as a woman. You can never win by ego and you can never sell yourself. Therefore, to be you, you have to find you within you, and on that ground you have to project. Project what? The only thing you can project is that you are good forever. There is nothing in you more permanent than your own grace. There is nothing more powerful in you than your own wisdom.
Yogi Bhajan 7/31/1984

What can you give to your child except the values of self-justice, except self-identity and self-sovereignty? A child must be told in a practical way, how to behave and must be treated to be self-sovereign. Otherwise you are absolutely not giving self-respect to that child. If you take away self-respect, after childhood, the child reacts and then needs psychologists, psychiatrists, mental hospitals, and the like. In childhood we have to be taught about life and justice. We have to be asked to relate to the reality of life in practical sovereignty, and to our independence. We have to have a system of judiciary within ourselves so we can have the experience of it.
Yogi Bhajan

A child is born to you to help him face his karma in this life. A child is not your ego; not a pet dog in the house; not a substitute for love. A child has nothing to do with that. A child is born to you so that you can prepare him to face time unto Infinity.
Yogi Bhajan 6/1997

Man, can be forgiven by God. I promise you. He can be forgiven, even without a prayer. But Mother Nature is not merciful at all. Her law is: As you sow, so shall you reap. She is in charge of karma.
Yogi Bhajan "Laws of Life"

You have no right to tell the child what to do. The child has the right to know what is good and what is bad. If you teach the child good and bad, the child will never leave you. There’s no better student. You have never accepted a child as a God-given student. You accept the child as your possession. That’s your mistake.
Yogi Bhajan 7/4/1996

I was taught the most fundamental law of karma, cause and effect. As shall you sow so shall you reap. And you are a sovereign independent identity. When you do fault, you lose your sovereignty. You subject yourself and subjection is worse than death. I was taught all that right from day one. It was a continuous process. It was a continuous learning. It was a continu­ous training. It was a continuous behavior.
Yogi Bhajan

However things go, you must remain calm, quiet and peaceful. That peace is the source of prosperity. Self-containment is the art of prosperity and it is the highest spiritual strength. There is nothing to match it.
Yogi Bhajan 12/1/2001

There is a constitutional law to being a mother: first be a woman, then be a graceful woman, then become a very, very, very, very graceful person… bearing a child is not a human’s job; bearing a child is totally a divine, divine, divine job… from 120 day (of pregnancy) until the day of delivery, whatever you put in through prayer is going to come out.
Yogi Bhajan 7/5/1977

Never be right or wrong, always be neutral. Speak not through the positive mind or the negative mind, but from the neutral mind. And whenever you have to confront a calamity or a pleasure, take the altitude. Adjust the attitude. Do not react right away.
Yogi Bhajan 7/22/1996

Caliber will make you deliver. Character will sustain you. Consciousness will carry you. Courage will bring you honor. Commitment will bring you trust.
Yogi Bhajan 9/3/1996

What a woman can do with one smile, you would need a very expert doctor to do. Her divine healing power is more than even she understands, because God has given her the status of a mother. If she’s not a mother, she’s a mother in potential. Therefore, her mechanism, her life, her clarification, is basically divine.
Yogi Bhajan 7/9/1984

Purity is just like a clean house. It makes you feel good. It's the conscious cleanliness, it is the ethics, it is the morals, it is the honesty, it's the commitment.
Yogi Bhajan 7/17/1984

When you are gentle, you don't step on your own self. Gentle means, "everlasting self-respect, self-prestige." Gentle people are those who understand who they are no matter what, and that mostly includes personal pressure. A gentleman is one who has total control of all his senses. Senses cannot misguide him. Emotions cannot blind him, and desires cannot pull him. That is gentle. Gentle is when you are super kind to your identity as a woman.
Yogi Bhajan 7/18/1984

People do not understand that life is a very direct challenge. If you do not stimulate yourself to the optimum point, you will be three fourths dead. If you keep on worshiping your blocks, you will be so badly blocked by your blocks, that you will never be in a position to move. These are the realities; this is our life. We have to make this life successful.
Yogi Bhajan 11/23/1993

Exactly it is one word in the whole dictionary, which can represent God in you, which can bring knowledge in you, which can make you everything what you want to be and that is gratitude. Attitude of gratitude is an ecstasy, a bliss, an accomplishment, an achievement. In English the word is 'thank you.' To ordinary person you say 'thank you.' Do you say that much thank you to your parents? Do you say thank you that much to your neighbors? Do you say thank you to a tree, which give you a shelter? Do you say a thank you to the car, which takes you somewhere? Why not? The human birth is meant for thanking. You have enemies, thank them, without them you will never be alert. You will never be smart. You will never enjoy your existence. What is a victory when enemy is so heavy, that life becomes treacherously miserable and then you survive? Then you say, 'thank you.' And it is existence!
Yogi Bhajan 10/31/1993

However things go, you must remain calm, quiet and peaceful. That peace is the source of prosperity. Self-containment is the art of prosperity and it is the highest spiritual strength. There is nothing to match it.
Yogi Bhajan 12/1/2001

When you have to say nothing, do nothing, be nothing, then what are you? You know what you are? You are a lighthouse, so nobody else can wreck near you. That is the one thing in life you have to do. Forklift. Spread the light. Be the lighthouse. So every journey, every destiny, every distance can be safe.
Yogi Bhajan 3/29/1987

Life is a continuous vibration of up and down. And in this up and down, try to be neutral; be seated in your own spiritual integrity.
Yogi Bhajan, 8/2/1981

Children are full-fledged people with high potency antennae which record every vibration within their vicinity completely and very deeply.
Yogi Bhajan 7/20/1976

What is God? In reality it is your own positive self, your higher Self, your universal Self, the Self which knows no defeat, the Self which can rise again and again and again like a wave in the ocean.
Yogi Bhajan 7/17/1984

If you do not love yourself to the depth of totality, you will never love, love as a reality. And that's the tragedy. If you do not love yourself unto totality of your own self, not of anybody, you will never love the love's reality.
Yogi Bhajan 6/4/1994

Sane is that who can deal with insanity and still smile. Brave is that, which can deal with cowardliness and still keep going. Rich is that, which can face the poverty and still not give up his consciousness. Spiritual is that, against all devilish darkness, he keeps the light burning. Giving is God, taking is taking, doesn't matter what you take.
Yogi Bhajan 4/8/1985

When you have your own mind under control, intuition will give you all the knowledge of the world. When you have control of your mind through your social and structural facets, you have the answer to everything. When you have control of your own mind, you can see the soul and God right within you.
Yogi Bhajan

My body is like a peanut, completely and permanently scarred by betrayals.
Yogi Bhajan

There should not be any misunderstanding and this is how I see every woman. You see woman as a chick, you see a woman as a woman, you see woman as a mom, you see woman in many ways. I see woman, who can give birth because, woman is the only one individual creature, which has a liberation with God in more ways than a man. Man has to become a man of God and woman can serve a man of God, she can be a wife of a man of God, she can be a mother of a man of God and she can be herself a woman of God.
Yogi Bhajan 1993 Woman's Camp

You are not going to find God. God is in you, around you, in everything of you. You have thirty trillion Gods in you. If you want to understand, every cell of the body and the three parts of it is God. There is nothing without God.
Yogi Bhajan 11/26/1989

Life is based on caliber, consciousness and character. If you have very strong character you cannot be dodged, you cannot be bent, and you cannot be wiped out. It's the character, which gives you courage, it is the character, which gives you stability, it is the character, which gives people impression, it is the character on which people trust, not you. You are worth nothing.
Yogi Bhajan

This whole universe is just the coexistence of a working electromagnetic field. There is no difference between us. Every magnetic field is electromagnetic; this means that our psyches are intertwined.
Yogi Bhajan 12/1/1986

Who are you? You are a 'hu-man being.' 'Hu' means spirit, the light. 'Man' means the mental, the now, being now. Now you are the spirit of your mind. You are the bright light of yourself. That’s your identity.
Yogi Bhajan 7/24/1996

I tell you why God likes you because every son wants his son to be better than him. Every God wants every human to be better than Him. So God can represent peace, tranquility and everlasting identity, and that's what God is.
Yogi Bhajan 1/7/1990

The breath of life is the only thing that comes to you without your asking. That is an infinite gift from God. You are a slave to everything except the breath of life.
Yogi Bhajan 10/7/1974

When a person wants to relay his feeling and the other person is a receptor of relayed feeling then a relationship is established. And when you do not relay and you do not receive or accept the relay, then the relationship is broken. So basically there is no relationship, which is permanent. It must be shocking to you, but it's a real truth. Relationship is nothing but the continued relay of one personality to another.
Yogi Bhajan

Blessings on all those who seek peace, blessings on all those who make peace, blessings on all those who have peace of mind and blessed are those whose life is peaceful within love and that deals with respect and endurance and reverence with peace to all. May the humanity pass through the era of peaceful ways as a guiding force and all pain to the humanity being included once for all, so mankind is everywhere in peace. Sat Nam
Yogi Bhajan

The problem is that you can't handle a relationship, because to handle a relationship, you have to invest your spirit into it, and you don't have a concept of your spirit.
Yogi Bhajan

Your failure is when you don't mean to commit. Because without a base, without nailing yourself to the situation, you will never find the answer. You may want to have the answer, you may badly need the answer, you may try to have the answer; but without your nucleus, there is no answer. Are you going to live with this woman or not? Are you going to be with this situation or not? If you are going to be, then go through with everything!
