A Word from the Master

What is the enlightened language of the man?

Whenever man has come to realization, all he could say is Sa, that is why Sa Ta Na Ma has first word Sa and music has the Sargam: Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Da Ni Sa. Sa is the experience of the action and reaction, both, spontaneously. You cannot become a bird without feathers and you cannot become spiritual without knowing the spirit.

You have to understand to stand under and then you have to test yourself, your physical, your mental and your spiritual self. Therefore I say to you today: the mind is a constant action and reaction of intellect. When you experience the consciousness, you relate it to infinity. How do you relate it to infinity? Through the mantra. What is a mantra? A word. A word which means what? Nothing, but also means everything. A word, which relates the finite to infinity, which inspires you.

God is infinity but when you consciously, constantly, creatively subject your mind to the object of mantra, then you become divine and infinite. Understand? That is why repeating the naam makes you, naam.

You are what you speak, you are what you eat, you are what you do.

--Yogi Bhajan, July 7, 1976

May you speak with committed language

May you eat food that nourishes the body
and the spirit

May your every action uplift
your self and everyone you touch

May your meditation be true
and may you always know your own
your very own note,
your very own song,
your very own voice,
your very own you.
