He produces a template that he claims all the premies experience during the process of becoming involved in Divine Light Mission activities. In this scenario the Knowledge session invariably produces short term bliss during which a manichean Mind takes a vacation due to the strength of the Knowedge force arraigned against it and then
Satsang of Guru Maharaj Ji, Pacific Guru Puja, Capitol Theatre, Sydney Australia. October 18, 1975.
Well dear premies I guess this is the first time that uh a Pacific Guru Puja has been held ever in Pacific although really one day Bob was asking me you know about Guru Pujas you know can we have a post Guru Pujas?" And I said, "Well, Guru Puja is really where all the devotees and Guru Maharaj Ji can be and they all come together, both come together and it's a Guru Puja cause that's exactly what it means. It's a Hindi world and it means Guru's Puja - 'Guru' means 'Guru' and 'Puja' means 'worship'. And really, it's so beautiful that this is, this was part of the world that was sorta left out from a festival, otherwise there has been one festival in South America, and of course in America, and in Europe, and then in India of course and this was sort of the continent, this was sort of the portion of the world that was left out. And now this has also been covered and it's so beautiful that all the premies can assemble for such a beautiful reason.
You see, sometimes it's very hard for us to understand. Things are different. You see, things do not always stay the same - they are always different. Even electricity that comes out of an outlet, an open outlet, that is always sort of on, it varies its current every second and it's like, everything in this world changes and we are all subject to something, except one and that is this Knowledge. And even that factor, Knowledge itself, changes within inside of us, because its takes its shape. It really starts to take away our confusions, take away our ego, take away our concepts.
You see, concepts are the things that we build inside of our heads and we build 'em and we build 'em. It's like a game. It's like just sort ofs imagine yourself with all these rocks, and you have a ladder, and you start building these this like sort of a wall around you and you build it and you build it and since you have a ladder it's very easy for you to build it. You can build it really high and you put a rock on top of another, after on top of another, on top of another - and you build a high wall all around you, then you climb up the stairs, this is just a wooden ladder, you get on top, you pick up the ladder and you say, "Well, I don't need this ladder any more," you chuck it out on the other side and you jump in the inside of this well that you built, that you that you developed.
And here you are, you enjoy it for a little while you're in there, you take care of these rocks which are your concepts that you built up. You put a finishing touch here and a finishing touch there and well, you say, "Oh, marvellous," you know, "Just marvellous, look at it, this is beautiful." And then all of a sudden, you feel this uh stomach going grrrrr. And you want some food, and you look around yourself and you go, "Oh brother." And all you can do is just go "Jesus Christ what did I do?"
And you know I mean this is an example, I gave it, everybody laughed. It's okay with me. The only problem is, it happens with everyone of us. This is exactly what we do. Before we know, we wind ourselves into this contraption. You see, some of these spiders, they're big, they're huge and they what they want to do to satisfy their hunger, they want to build a huge gigantic web, so that they will be able to catch as many flies, as many bugs, as many things as possible in this web. Well they go ahead and build it and sometimes they get trapped in their own web themselves and they can't get out. And the reason for that is they are I mean the reason is that they wanted to catch the other bugs in it and they build it so that it will be very good, very precise, very excellent. But it was excellent all right, you got caught in it yourself.
And that's the way man is. You know, I always say this, maybe not in all the programs but all this at least I say this to myself. There's one thing I can't understand that today's man thinks to be very intelligent, very, very intelligent. They think that they have got some technology going for themselves, they've got something fantastic going for themselves. And, well, it's true. They've got some things that are just incredible. Well I mean they hop over to moon and things like that. But on thsi that I cannot answer myself is then if man is really that smart because you know sometimes I open up a tape recorder and I look inside of it and it's got some incredible guts in it. All the circuit boards and all the motors everything the way everything has been designed I mean it's some years and some smartness and some brains it takes to design a machine that we operate, that we use, you know, and we think we're so smart but look at it okay so we are because we are because we made a product, we made something that's so highly advanced that's so highly just exquisite but so far we are concerned, we are like a swinging pendulum. We do the very mistake of understanding the perfectness, of really realising what that source of Truth is. We make that mistake of forgetting, that how, how it is every time. And we make that mistake again and again and again and again and we've got I mean I tell you, we've got all the scriptures we need, that we believe in in front of us and and then we do the same mistake again. It's like, it's like really that story where this saint who lives in this jungle trains this parrot you see. He doesn't want birds being caught, he wants the birds to be free, to do whatever they want to do, to fly, to feed, to do whatever they want to do freely in the way they're supposed to. He doesn't want them to be contrapted, he doesn't want them to be killed so he trains a parrot and he trains the parrot and he tells the parrot "Go tell the birds that when you find food laid out, that's so easy to find and you find food that's all over the place and you see a net don't go for it. Doesn't matter how hungry you are look for some other source, go somewhere else, find some other food but don't go and eat that food."
And a parrot is a parrot. He doesn't know what he's talkin' about. I mean you go like "Wheet" and he'll speak one thing and you go like "toot" and he'll speak one thing and you go "Deedeedeedee" and he'll speak one thing. So a parrot is a parrot and this parrot goes out and there is a whole bunch of birds and he goes out and he sits on a branch and that is what the saint has told him and he says "Don't eat the food, don't eat the food, don't eat the food, don't eat the food, you'll get contrapted, you'll get caught and the birds look over to him and they say "That's true because this has happened before, birds have got caughten before and this is the very same thing that has happened." There was food there, they went for it and they got caught and it and you see the funny part about it sometimes the parrot himself gets caught and then then what happens and that's man. And you see, times and times Perfect Master comes and just imagine this world to be a jungle and he comes and he tells people, "Don't do this, don't, you know, go tell other people also, not to do this." And he sets an example every time he comes into this world but then again man, lo and behold, after everything he does get caught in his own contraption. And the thing he knows is that he is going to be caught up. So premies, this is why there is such a great importance, there is such a great role of Guru Maharaj Ji in this world. This is the reason why we need him. So that he can guide us properly in the direction that we need to be at. So that he can point us that correct road that we need to be at so that we will not build up a well around us and chuck the ladder on the other side. It's not bad to build that well, I mean, sometimes there are other people who come and volunteer for it. Sometimes our parents do it. They don't know, themselves.
It's like God, you know, and it's like there's a little kid and he doesn't know anything about God. Their parents tell them about God but if the kid turns around and asks, "What is God anyway, who is He?" they try to project a image to him. "Well He is this long bearded fellow who sits on a blue throne up in the heavenly skies" and so on and so forth you know and it's like, sometimes people help us to build up these images. I mean of course, the parents themselves have never realised, never seen, never touched, never felt God before, the power before, the supreme authority that they talk about, before. And sometimes they help you to make those concepts. But what does Guru Maharaj Ji do? He comes around and says, "Okay, that's enough. That's just great, that's fine. You've got this, now look, don't chuck the ladder, keep the ladder."
It's all I mean the way is very subtle. The way is very indirect. I mean, how more subtle can you be? Instead of giving at that very point the instructions, trying to explain a person, "Well, you know, this is all weird and this is all crazy and this is all absurd that you have built up all this wall around you," which is true, he doesn't do that. He just comes and says, "Don't chuck the ladder, cause if you do, finito, you've had it." And some people listen to him and they find out that they can be in that wall of concepts, that they wanna be in without being in it and being able to come in and out any time they want, and even get rid of it because once they go outside and they find out that this is just totally unnecessary.
And that's why Guru Maharaj Ji comes into this world, just to tell us, "Don't chuck the ladder. Keep it, you'll need it you know." And I mean, Guru Maharaj Ji itself, in West, it's a hard word to pronounce because a lot of television people and a lot of radio people who pronounce and talk and talk all day long, they themselves have extreme difficulty in pronouncing that word. They say Guru Maharishi or something like that. You know, Gu Mahaji. They have a hard time pronouncing it. But don't relate to that to, that pronunciation. Relate to what is behind it and to understand and to realise more of that glory of Knowledge and to understand, to understand more of the glory of the revealer of that Knowledge, we all assemble to worship him, to pray, to understand more because there is never enough of this stuff. There's never enough of satsang, there's never enough of that beautiful blissful experience that we all want to experience. So premies, it's like, it's so beautiful that this Pacific Guru Puja has been held here, you know, and it just shows us that we are just coming together more and more and more and more and more. You know, I mean, look at South Africa. There's apartheid problem there and everybody's aware of it. But between premies there's no apartheid problem because they have gone one step beyond where they can see the Truth, the fact, the gist of life, where they have realised that life itself, where they have understood what ticks, what makes this body tick and that super power, that super energy, that super, super energy and really you know it's like we have different words to define it and I happen to know English, you happen to understand English and I used the words that I know. And it's like 'energy' is the closest word that comes to it. But believe me, it's a undescribable thing. Because it's it's perfect, because psst perf perfectness, that very infinite thing cannot be put into words. Because well da da da leave a big dot line behind that because there's no explanation, because you cannot put perfectess, something which is totally infinite into a bracket where you can put a question mark to it.
So premies, it's like it's so beautiful the closer and closer and closer we come, not physically, but within our hearts, within our love and we experience the true love and the more beautiful it gets. Because that program in Essen, I tell you, that was something else, because like I mean it's so beautiful. Like every time we have a program afterwards we go "Well that was something else" and "That was fantastic. I mean it just couldn't have been better" and "That was the best" and there comes along another program and we say, "Well, that was THE best" and there comes another program and we say "Well that one takes the cake" and another one comes along "That takes the prize. That was the prize." You know it just goes on and on and on because that love is totally infinite. It just grows and grows and grows and grows and grows and we all experience it together and it's becomes more beautiful and more beautiful and more beautiful and it's unlimited. And it's like in Essen, I don't know if any of you got a chance to go out there because I tell you, it's quite a project coming from America to Australia, it really is. It's uh quite a bit of uh flying time there and you you're just sitting in an aeroplane and just flying out to the bottom of the world. (laughter) That's what I asked, you know, the premie who was driving the car, I said, "Well how does it feel to be at the bottom of the world?" He said, "Well we don't seem to have any problem." Well, but we come here and we experience that joy, we experience that love, we experience something that we try to put in some kind of phrase we know. Of course we know that it never works because what we experience, we know it, and every individual premie experiences it. So it's like, really what what is there to say after an ultimate experience that we have all experienced, that is if you have received Knowledge and if you are meditating at it. And if you're not, that makes it quite different.
You see, that really creates problems, when you have Knowledge and you don't meditate, and you don't do service and you don't listen to satsang. Because they're there for a reason too, they're to help you, you know, they're really there to help you. Because there's so many premies who really, really get helped, who really get elevated fast through satsang, service and meditation. And a lot of premies think, "Well if this Knowledge is the way it is, it's perfect, and I've realised it, then why, why do I need to do meditation?" Well this Knowledge is perfect but you aren't. That's the reason you need to do service, satsang, service and meditation. Because definitely this Knowledge is perfect, definitely this Knowledge is that, is that very thing, but I'm afraid you are not that very thing. You are a human being just like me, in this body and we all need to do service, satsang and meditation.
Because it's like, well if I've got the car and it's got the engine in it, why do I need to fill it up with gas, and why do I need to put the oil in the engine, and what why do I need to check the battery? Well don't. The engine will be still there and the car will be still there but it won't go anywhere. And what you call a car will exist, it'll be right there with a beautiful engine in it, a beautiful interior, your air conditioning system whatever whatever you got, but it won't do you any good, believe me. But when you put those things into it, then it's everything. I mean you know, some people drive Rolls Royces and some people do drive Honda Civics, you know and there is quite a bit of difference but they both seem to roar on, they both seem to go on the road. And it's like, that is the thing that we have to realise, that there is something else also that drives it, that sustains it, that helps it, because if you don't put water into your radiator, believe me, your car will go, it'll run, but for a very short distance, because the engine will get overheated which will create problems in the engine and all of a sudden you will hear these pistons go ka-boom and there'll be your car there but it'll have something missing and that's what satsang, service and meditation.
They keep your car perfectly lubricated, they provide it more than sufficient energy, they provide it perfect maintenance, and you're in just great. I mean, that's all the car needs, and that's what you need: satsang, service and meditation. Because you see, you have to understand one thing. We are all living in this planet which is very finite. And we are approaching a subject, we are approaching, we are trying to merge into something which is totally infinite. And there is a great barrier between the two of these things. Because in this life, in this very form, in this very time, we are trying to realise Knowledge, to merge, to be one with that perfectness, to be one with that pure vibration. This what we are trying to do. And our goal is totally infinite and its like to match up the two in between because this barrier which is this finite world that we are in and you know it's like you go and jump off a cliff and you eliminate the barrier, but that doesn't do you any good exactly, because that's not the way to go about it either. The way to go about it is to balance out between those two so you can be synched and still have the barrier. And that's the whole thing about it.
This is why Guru Maharaj Ji comes into this world, reveals us the Knowledge, goes around and gives satsang, is to tell premies, "Well, keep on doing service, keep on doing satsang, keep on doing meditation so that we can be perfectly synchronised and still have the barrier." And that's the beauty about it. Because that is possible and satsang, service and meditation are three things that keep us in line, that keep us in synch, that keep us in balance but the thing which is our aim is behind the barrier. And then we slowly and slowly get synched with it, through meditation, through service, through satsang and we get more synched with it, and then we get more synched with it until we are one with it, and it's so beautiful because the barrier is still there, but then it sort of goes like on the side and we are one with the destiny, we are one with our goal, we are one with the thing we want to be one with.
So premies, it's like satsang is such a thing that the true satsang would be that if everybody assembled in the hall and the hall didn't have any seats in it, it had a thick mattress on the floor, and everybody came in and sat down and just did meditation. That would be the very, very true satsang because what does satsang mean? The company of Truth and if everybody ss sit down sits down and does meditation that'll be just complete truth. But then we need a little gist also sometimes, which we then call satsang, because at that time we are trying to be synchronised with the with the Truth and we are told all these different things and Mahatma Ji gives you satsang, maybe somebody else gives you satsang, maybe Marolyn gives you satsang, maybe I give you satsan, and it's to synch you a little bit more, a little bit more, a little bit more in the company of Truth. So premies, it's like in this material world, you know, here we are and here we are with our problems, stuck with the problems. And so we have our destination, or Knowledge, beautiful, beautiful Knowledge, and it's like up to us to just crawl over there to reach it, grab it and that's it.
Because it's like, you know Premlata, watching Premlata grow, it's such a beautiful experience because first of all she was born, she was just very little, you know, I mean she was she was small compared to what you see her now as and slowly and slowly she grew, she started to get, slowly and slowly she was co-ordinating herself, she got a little more co-ordinated, a little more co-ordinated, a little more coordinated and it's like in it was just like it would develop, it would take months and weeks to develop that coordination but we would notice it one day because she would do something. And it's like now, she is at a point where she can barely crawl. It's not like she's got, she can take her legs and get in a crawling position but her hands are not in synched, so she just flops over and then she has to go round like that and get up again and go up and I. She just slowly and slowly and slowly getting there and it's so beautiful because it's happening as its at its own pace and it's beautiful, it's perfect, nobody wants to push it because there is no necessity to push it and it's happening at its own pace beautifully and the same way with Knowledge, exactly the same way with Knowledge. We realise Knowledge when we do.
I mean sometimes you must sit down and think about the time when first it hit you. You know, I mean like, here comes a premie, hands you over a leaflet and you say, "Oh come on, not one of those." You read it and say, "Maybe. I haven't got anything on Saturday night, maybe I'll go and listen to satsang." You go down and you say, "Wow, well, that was pretty good. But maybe maybe they're not so maybe it's not all that true." Then you consult your friends and they say, "Oh that's forget it man, that's all the same." And then you listen to a little bit more because you're curious, you you wanna know, there's something inside of you which is saying, "Go on man, go on, you can do it, this is what you want." And that drive makes you go again to satsang, you know, and see the same old Mahatma again, same old story but sounds like it's different, somehow, someway, it sounds different. And then again and then again and then again and then one day you say, "Oh man forget it man, I just gotta receive that Knowledge, I just have to. I know I know what he's talkin' about." Then you go and you realise that Knowledge.
And I mean it's such such such a procedure, because like, I have developed Super 8 film and you think that's a procedure, to develop a film, to take it out of one one solution wash it and then put another solution in and wait for a little while and then put another solution in and then rinse that one off and then put another one in. If you think that's a procedure, just wait a minute, look at the way you came to Knowledge. That's quite a procedure. Because it's like so much reluctance from mind was put up and it's like, cross one shield, cross other shield, cross other shield, cross other shield, you kept on going and kept on going and kept on and it happened at its own pace. It just happened at its own pace. There was a click then and a click then that made it happen for you. But the click then and the click then happened at its own time, at its own pace and it's it's like so automatic once you open yourself up to it because it just happens. And then one after another and one after another and one after another, things keep happening, things keep happening, that are that just drive you more and more and more closer to that understanding and then one day that other click happens and you all of a sudden you find yourself in a Knowledge session.
And there is the same old Mahatma again, giving the same old story again, trying to screen you out and well he does or he doesn't and lo and behold you receive Knowledge and then that's one part of the story, how you come to Knowledge. Then that's another segment of story of how you received Knowledge and then there's the third part of the story and unfortunately this is a unfinished chapter, the third chapter is unfinished, it's just nobody could complete it, because in the third segment it starts off with you doing meditation, the third the third part of the story starts off with you understanding more and more of this Knowledge, slowly like a plant growing and growing and growing and growing and growing and realising more and understanding more and every day, every day you understand something which is more beautiful and every time you do meditation it's a different experience, you know, and it's like, that it slow that chapter never ends.
And it goes two ways, you see, there are two books and in the other book the two chapters, the two first chapters are the same but in the third book and the third and in the second book in the third chapter chapter it's a little bit different and this one the person is very lazy. The first two segments are the same but in the third one he says, "Oh man, forget it. What's he talkin' about? This must be some old Indian story he's talking about." And he says, "Why do I have to do this meditation for?" And it's like the mind. And unfortunately in the second book, third chapter has a very, very short beginning and a very short ending and it's called, "And The Mind Takes Over", full stop and the mind and him live unhappily ever after, and that's the end of that story. And like, you know, that's the way it goes. And one, it's just infinite because it's beautiful and you know, everything happens in it. Because you know, like I was explaining in Essen, you see there is mind there and the mind is there for a very specific reason and that's to confuse you. Well, it has to do its service and it has to try as hard as possible and it has to just do it and more and more and more it has to just try. And it's like, then comes the point of course where the mind goes, "Okay, you take it, you won me, you did it, you know." and I mean after that it doesn't even speak and that's the third chapter of the first book, where then there's just no end because that experience is infinite and it just goes on and we experience it more and more and more and more and more. And see premies, mind is a very tricky thing. It's a extremely tricky thing and the way it can affect you is so … I gue - I mean, you think that the diamond stylus for a record player is very fine, well you haven't seen nothing. Mind is the finest, the most precise, the most trickiest thing that there is. I mean, it takes I mean that's it. I mean, look at look at man. Why is he unsatisfied?
He doesn't know the reason himself. He can barely see it, he can barely feel it, he can barely touch it. As a matter of fact some people can'y and still they are confused and they're confused out of their minds, their brains, they're confused out of their bodies virtually, and those are the people you know who just don't know what to do and they just go, "Brother, what's happening, what's happening?" You know?
And it's like let me tell you how tricky the mind is, and how it works after you receive Knowledge. You see after you receive Knowledge it's so beautiful because you keep in close in close contact and it's really beautiful you know, everything is like clicking (clicks his fingers) up and you are a new premie and every time other other premies see you they go, "Jai satchitanand, jai satchitanand, jai satchitanand," and so it's like it's really happening and then you sort of fade out. You're there but that's that's it. And you see it's like you're doing meditation, you're really trying hard and you're really doing meditation and here is your mind really trying to say, "Well forget it, well forget it, well forget it, well forget it" you know and you keep on doing meditation because there is all this activity happening around you and you are really trying to do meditation, you're really inspired to do meditation. Well, the mind says, "Well this is a regular battle, I've gotta do something about this one" and it says, "Well, you've gota win him somehow because he does this meditation and he's doing service and he listens to satsang, and every time these three ammunitions, these three guns, these three bazookas attack me, I get virtually destroyed."
So he says, "Okay, well I just have to do something about it." And it says, "Okay I'm gonna take a vacation, I'm gonna think about it" and so the mind goes away, it actually goes away, you don't have any more mind and that's the period that all the premies experience after they have just received Knowledge. They feel very beautiful, they feel very blissful, they go and they write a letter and they say, "Oh Guru Maharaj Ji, thank you, it's just so blissful, it's so fantastic, I have such an experience." You know, they experience the mind for a little while and then it goes away and they say, "Oh thank you Guru Maharaj Ji, the mind just went away." And you know, whenever I see one of those letter I says, "Oh yeah?" and I just wait (laughter) and it's like that's what you think it just went away but didn't quite. So what it does it goes back and it plans a method, plans a way it can get you most efficiently. The best way it can get you. So he goes out and he plants a device. And he plants it and plants it and plants it and plants it and then one day, here it is and he comes to you and goes, "Jai satchitanand premie ji." And you just say, "Jai satchitanand", I mean that's the thing you have been doing. And I mean, it just sneaks right into you, and you don't even know it and it just goes, "Jai satchitanand", because the method it just devised was "Well I can't win him head on, let me join him and destroy him inside so he just falls apart, and then I have him."
So then all of a sudden, you feel this strong drive for everything. And I mean, I'm pretty sure that either some of you are going through that phase, or have already or will be going into it, because it happens to all the premies. It's quite normal,you know it's like, uh what they say when you hear that thunder in the aeroplane, it's quite normal, it's just the gears dropping down, and that's what happens with mind. It's quite normal if you're feeling all these things, it's okay, there's nothing to bother about. That's what it does. But, if you stop doing satsang, service and meditation then there's a lot to bother about and if you're not you know if you don't want to be bothered about it just keep on doing satsang, service and meditation and you'll be in just great shape. So as I was saying, this is what mind does, it comes in, it says, "Alrighty, jai satchitanand premie ji, how are you doing today. Isn't everything fantastic, isn't everything beautiful, let's go do some service", and you say, "Boy, isn't this beautiful, you're doing service, you're doing service, you're doing service." Then after a little while, you've aged a little bit, you've done a lotta service, done a lot of satsang, done a lotta heard a lotta satsang and one day the mind turns around and says, "Well, jai satchitanand again, how are you today, how did it go?" And you say, "Wonderful." You know I mean this is what you are saying to yourself, it's your mind talking to you.
It says, "Uh well haven't you done enough service?" and "Haven't you done enough satsang and heard enough satsang?" And you say, "Yeah it was beautiful," he says, "Yeah man, it was really, really beautiful. Why don't you take a vacation from it? Listen, I mean it's not going to hurt you to take a couple of days vacation out of satsang, service and meditation. You've done it enough so that you've got it enough momentum going there for yourself." And you say, "Right man, I've done enough satsang, service and meditation all this time, if I don't do it for two days it won't hurt (loud boom in background) anything." (mumbles and baby cries) So that's what it does, it hurts you (laughter) you don't know it but it does. So anyway, you say, "Okay." So you take a couple of days vacation and you do, and it's not a couple of days vacation. It's a vacation forever you take from that beautiful experience. And Mind just did its trick, that's what it does. It came in and joined the forces and made everything go bongo and here you bin sit down and say and then you know premies ask you how come you aren't doing satsang, service and meditation anymore he says, "Well I've got enough momentum going man, I can feel everything," and what you're feeling is the same old mind. He's stronger, he's got a stronger grip on you, he's strong, he's got a stronger a stronger hold on you and I'll tell you it takes a lot more after that to get rid of it than it took before. Because before it was just sitting. Now it's bolted, welded and riveted on to you because it found its stronghold and it just grabbed on to you and you're stuck with it. So premies be very, very careful. If you have already have such experience, you know what I'm talkin' about. Don't give up satsang, service and meditation because that's what exactly will happen. And premies who haven't felt this, watch out. It's comin' to you any day (laughter)and there's no fixed day for it, no set time and premies who are passed the stage and still are hanging on, good for you, because it does you all the good. And it's like, we're here and we experience the bliss, we experience the love and we experience something that we cannot even name and everything is beautiful and blissful after that, if we keep on goin', if we keep on truckin'. And that that should be our main objective. Just keep on truckin, just keep on going.
Do that I mean it's like, you know, sometimes people come into Knowledge sessions and they expect a ka-boom. And it's like it's not like that. You are entering an experience. You want to experience an experience, you want to be one with that experience because that's where you belong, you know. And it's like so funny sometimes when I'm talking and there are a lot of non-premies in the in the audience, it's like I feel like well you know it's so there's such a contrast between premies and non-premies and the reason for that is because premies are understanding exactly what I'm saying, they understand word to word, word to word, word to word. Well non-premies are trying to figure out what I'm trying to say. And there is such a really, a really heavy contrast between these two. But it's like sometimes I feel, you know, that this world is so nuts, this world is so crazy because they think that they're doing me a favour by coming over here and listening to me. Well forget it.
You know, it's just like uh when I came from American Samoa, I came over and I was really excited, you know, it was beautiful, to come over to Australia and I didn't really, you know, rest. I just fell asleep at night and woke up and had a big day and then just before coming over here I took a little nap. Well, I would have still been taking a nap, you know, and it's like I really feel it's my duty, because I have experienced the Knowledge, to come and tell the people about it, that there is a experience like this which exists and you can have that experience. I don't' care, I mean if you don't want to, be my guest. If you want to, you're most welcome and again, be my guest. And it's like, you know, to me that's my duty and I'm performing it and you're not doing me a favour by coming over here and you're not doing me a favour by going out of here because that's just that is a totally irrelevant thing. You're supposed to be at a place and I can help you to be at that place and it's like it's not a supposition that's a concept, it's a fact, because when you get there, you realise that it is a fact that you're supposed to be there. I mean right now that would be the language, that would be the sentence that we would put it as but when we get there it's quite a bit of a different story.
So premies, there is one more day of satsang and this is a festival and enjoy yourselves while you're at it and understand and experience, because there is something always there that we all want to be in tune with. You see, right now in this very hall, there is a song being played and that goes two ways of course. There is one that's playing within inside of us right now, and there is a song being played on a radio. We don't have the radio, we can't hear that song. If we had the radio, we can hear that song. If we had the radio and if it was off, we couldn't hear the song. If it was on we could hear the song. If it was on, if it was out of frequency, we couldn't hear it and if it was in frequency, we could hear it. So you see how many things it takes to actually be able to hear that song, to be able to actually materialise it. We have to be on, we have to be at the right frequency and we have to have the power source (snaps his fingers into the microphone) and bongo, we listen to the most beautiful music, most beautiful sound, and feel the most incredible experience of our life. So understand and try to realise what I am trying to say, because you see, it's like it's hard to come out to this part of the world. It's a long journey and not too many countries in between that can be covered and we're trying to make a schedule so that every year, all over the world can be covered, and we try and do that and it's very, very hard because that means I mean that just just occupies the whole year of just going round the world, you know, and it's it's pretty hard, it's pretty strenuous. But I tell you, it becomes so easy and becomes so beautiful when all the premies are there and you are in that frequency and you can hear the song. Because otherwise, you just sit there and you're bored that you don't even know what to do. But when you have that and when you're tuned to that frequency, it's so blissful, it's so easy, it's so marvellous, it's so it's so incredible and it's like, I wish I could give my experience to other people. I can't, and neither can you give your experience to me. Not that there is a barrier in between but there is a reason and the reason is that every individual person experiences that individual thing himself. It's a individual experience, to be experienced by every individual.
This section was printed in the edited transcript that was printed in the Golden Age but is not on the tape (I have 2 copies). The speech may have been too long to fit.
And we experience it, the more tuned we are to that frequency, the better, the better, the better, the better, the better, the better we hear it and the better we experience it. The more off tune we are, there is more distortion, there is more distortion, there is more distortion, there is more distortion and there is more distortion.
And so premies, it's just like realise, understand and enjoy yourself. And of course there is always going to be a crazy mind somewhere along the line, can't always expect it to be a lot smoother but we can have that experience, we can make that experience happen for ourselves. So understand and realise what this Knowledge is because we all assemble here so that we can have little more, so that we can get in tune with the frequency a little bit more and see that's why we all come together, we have satsang, we talk to each other, we talk about our experiences.
Here we are, it's for some thing that is so beautiful that it is just undescribable.
So premies, thank you very much and welcome to Pacific Guru Puja, you welcome me and I'm welcoming you to Pacific Guru Puja and I guess this is the first time this Guru Puja has uh been held here and I hope that there is a lot more times like this so that we can all really progress and really enjoy and be in that harmony, be in that bliss and be in that tune that we all want to be in. So is it tomorrow night satsang and hope you're a little bit more in tune to understand what I am trying to say. Thank you very much. Bolie Shri
