Yogi Bhajan Lecture: The Test of Compassion

Excerpts from a lecture given on 7/11/86

What is that one thing that qualifies a human to be human? The only beautiful thing which makes you human is compassion. Without it you are worth nothing.

Just think about it. Think of vengeance. Think of lies. Think of truth. Think of God. Think of greatness. Think of anything. Take compassion out of it, and you'll find everything is bitter. There is absolutely no grace without compassion. Let us discuss. Let us have a good debate.

Student: Well, everybody should have compassion.

The Secret of Prosperity

By Guruka Singh

We live in a difficult age. There is constant distraction. In our 21st century culture of acquisition and consumerism, television, movies, newspapers, magazines, and books constantly fill our mind with stimulating images. Our minds constantly fantasize, and we spend much of our time living in our fantasies.

The most basic teaching of Raj Yoga is that the mind makes a powerful servant, but it makes a lousy master. When we let our mind roam free, it takes us wherever it wishes to go—and there's always someplace interesting to go!

Making Sense in an Age of Change

By Devjot Singh

Yogi Bhajan’s messages about the Aquarian Age may have been difficult to contextualise before now. We can forgive ourselves perhaps for hearing his teachings simply as an inspirational metaphor supporting personal commitment to a spiritual path.

Yogi Bhajan Lecture: Ishnaan - The Science of Hydrotherapy

Excerpt from a lecture by Yogi Bhajan

I'd like to share the technology and science of a type of massage with you. It is called hydrotherapeutical massage. As I'm sitting before you, my first qualification and field of expertise is in hydrotherapy. You may not have known that. I carry the lineage of those who now are very unknown, who worked on the bones, adjusted the body and did massage to recreate healthy organs.

Keeping Up: Within You is All that You Need

 By Sat Purkh Kaur Khalsa

“The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” 

I was never one to make a list of New Year’s resolutions—but sometimes one is just compelled to; so I would end up generating something like a list. But I would wait until January 6th or 7th, just to take some of the pressure off! In my experience, when I created resolutions that were to begin on the 1st, I had usually broken them by the 3rd—exasperating and not a little self-defeating!
