Q & A with GSD 020 with CC subtitles

Baba Ji is the close presence of the Master good disciple of the disciple, or by His grace? "Too close breeds breeds contempt." You know, sometimes when you're too close, simply the tendency of the mind is to break everything down. So we start to analyze everything he says, what he does - and many times we cannot understand it. So when you're too close, when the moth gets too close to the fire, so it can burn. Thank you, Baba Ji. Baba Ji, could you say something about life forms, who are going through the consequences of their actions (bogjun), and those who create deeds (karamjuni). Look, when we're talking about Cycle 84, according to the Vedas it is divided into 2 parts. You know that when God created - according to the Hindu concept, according to the concept of the Vedas, when God created creation, Created by… and then created 8,400,000 species of beings And then he divided them into two groups - one is karamjuni and the other is bogjuni. So the gogjuns are those who repay karma; they do not create karma. And karamjuni are those who repay karma, and they also create karma. Look at it this way, if someone has a specific one let's say a lot of karma, it depends on the species in which it is born. This kind of being has its load of karma. When he went through it, progress in development to the next. When he goes through the karma of this stage of being, continues to another type of body. So it's a ladder. You are climbing the ladder. And how do you repay you become lighter and progress upwards. And then, at some point, with His grace, you will leave bogjun. Except for human beings, all bogjuns are including so-called celestial beings, which we sometimes talk about ... bhógjúni. As you develop, you will ascend to karamjuni. And what is the difference between karamjuni and bogjun? In karamjun you have a vivak, you have the ability to distinguish. Bhogjun responds to stimuli. In karamjun, you should think you are expected to differentiate you will be objective and move forward. Therefore in Karamjun not only do you repay, but you also create karma. And only in karamjun, you can achieve salvation the bogjuns cannot. Bogjun must first develop into karamjun, so that they may attain salvation. So they pay. In addition to repayment, you also create. And in karamjun, if your karmic load you have created, is so big, your burden is too heavy, so you can descend the ladder. Do you know? You climbed the ladder, you are on the last place, you sacrifice a little, and you will no longer need a ladder, you ascend above it. But still on the last rung, if… your foot slips, You can't know where to go again you catch and which rung you end up on. Therefore it is said in Adi granth: "Of the 8.4 million species, God blessed man with great grace. A human being who fails misses this chance, he will suffer the pain of coming and going. " In this round 84, is the pinnacle of a human being - "God has blessed man with great glory." Do you understand? He has such a position "The One Who Misses -." He uses an example of a ladder here, that we climbed the ladder, but if you slip at this crucial moment, you don't know where to catch yourself which june (life form) you will go to. So you have to go back and cycle birth and death, happiness and sorrow. "He will suffer the pain of coming and going." We will have to come again and again. Baba Ji, if we knew how important this was, it would really affect our… When you take it, if we involved numbers, 8,400,000 species of beings, if you went through each of those species so you get a human birth after 8,400,000 years. Do you understand? And we know that there are many kinds of beings, Simply… trees and plants that will live for hundreds of years. That can't even be calculated, after all we've been through, what pain and suffering we had to experience, to gain this status, and now that we have reached it, we take that for granted. Or we don't know or we don't understand it. I think we all understand well. It is not that we do not distinguish between right and wrong, we simply take it all for granted and we think it will happen to others and not to us. Thank you, Baba Ji. Hazura, what is the difference between love and addiction? Love helps you grow up addiction pulls you down. You know, I mean, like we talked about last time, love ... we really don't know what love is. Love, love is something beyond our comprehension. You must learn to give love. There is a beautiful quote from Krishnamurti, where he says that it is difficult to explain or understand love. But we can certainly talk about what love is not. Love is a positive quality. When we say we love someone, we start to be jealous we don't want to share we are domineering, and these are negative features. And it's not love. Love is something that lifts us. Love is something that leads us beyond the physical. So, in fact, we try through a spiritual process, open to love. You know, most of us are programmed, and therefore we experience only a certain aspect of this love. Until you open up completely, you cannot experience love. Thank you, Hazura. Hazura, I have two questions. First, you explained beautifully to us, as we evolved through 8.4 million species of beings until human birth. Many people are subject to the misconception that that when we have gone through evolution and received human birth, we ended all the karma we had to go through, and then ascended to human birth. But I would like to point out that even after obtaining human birth with the grace of God, we are still sure of our sinchine or storage karma. You know, we shouldn't get bogged down in things like sinchine karma, fateful karma, etc. We use these terms only as a means of explanation. All we need to know is that we are part of a karmic cobweb. Being part of the web of karma means that we still have karma. We have a body - that means karma, you know? Whether we are good or bad. Until we ascend over it, This cycle will continue, right? "You will be responsible for every action you take." Therefore, once we go through the consequences, it means we still have karma. That is, as long as we are in the body, we do deeds. But if we want to attain salvation, we must rise above karma. Now we often ask about good and bad karma - if someone does good deeds and devotes himself to charity… We have a saying: "Renunciation leads to the throne, and reign leads to hell!" Someone can do good deeds and do charity - and accumulates very good karma. Once he has good karma, he will return as a king or ruler. When he returns as king or ruler, succumbs to sensory pleasures, and will have to be responsible for it, and so the cycle continues. That is why Adi Granth says "He is superior to gifts, charity and renunciation. A language that repeats the Name of God, it will lead a person to fulfillment. " The kind of devotion that surpasses all its other kinds, is meditation on Us, meditation on Shabd. And as soon as we meditate on Shabd, when we start meditating then as the Master in Adi granth says: "Go where you can get God's Us. Thanks to the Master's grace, engage in meditation. " So until we meditate on this Us - because the only way to compare your karmic accounts is Shabd. "Sabd will erase the trace of karma, Shabd will connect you with the original Shabd. " There is no other way. Without him, everyone will be trapped in a web of karma. Good karma, bad karma - debit and credit will continue. And even if we have to sincere karma, will be deleted by Shabd. You know, we can never erase our karma. He will take our responsibility and will lift us above all this. Simply put, we do not have the strength and power. Whatever we create - good karma, bad karma - it will continue. But as soon as we turn to Him, as soon as we submit will take our responsibility - only then can we rise above this state of ours. My second question, Baba Ji, it is said that a disciple who seeks refuge with his Master and engages in meditation practice, goes through three stages. The first is patience, the second is satisfaction, and the third is gratitude. I would like to ask you to explain these three stages. We are back on the topic of surrender. The first two basically mean patience and submission - where is His will our commandment, right? Once everything is His will, and we live in His will, then we no longer distinguish anything. "He considers pleasure and pain to be the same, and does not distinguish between triumph and shame. " So what would be the contradictions? Then there is nothing to classify as good and bad, because then we accept everything as His will, we know it's good for us to get it from God. Then there is no contradiction left. So we stepped out of the realm of patience into satisfaction. Then we ... it's subordination, we have to surrender. Thank you Baba Ji. Baba Ji, we all struggle with decision-making in life, and if we are on our way, how can we know that the decisions we are trying to make are the right ones? We learn through experience. I don't think anyone was ever born with such a degree of maturity that he would know everything. Look - the evolution of life is like waking up, we experience something every day. And these experiences teach us: good, bad. So no one knows. We have to go through our experience. "Experience teaches young people to be old, and old to be young. " So as a general rule, whatever brings us to our goal - - God, that's good. Whatever distracts us from our goal, we should avoid this. But if our intentions are correct and the decisions we have made, don't suit someone else, how to look at it? No decision you make will suit everyone. It is your life experience completely different from someone else's experience. What is food for one may be poison for another. The medicine that suits you will not suit everyone. They may have a reaction to it. So from our point of view, whatever experience has taught us, whatever we think is right - we have to decide, we have to move on. However, this does not necessarily mean that everyone agrees with the decision, and that it will suit everyone. So we shouldn't stamp, but to come up with a solution that we think is right, and then listen to the other one, find out what experience has taught him, what is his point of view and then try to come to a common conclusion. My second question, Baba Ji, is how to distinguish between a happy life and a successful life? I don't know what success is. Today, the scale of success has changed. In the good old days, success was when people respected you you stood for your ideals, for their opinions, then you were a very respected person. That has changed nowadays. No? Today we see money, we see wealth, everything is measured in terms of material things. But we do not get satisfaction from these things. They just stimulate the taste, they arouse in us the desire to have more and more. Satisfaction must come from within, when you compare yourself to yourself. If you are aligned with yourself, you are happy with yourself no matter who says anything about you, it doesn't change anything. And that has nothing to do with how poor or rich you are. Satisfied means learning to live in His will and accept it. "If you give me the kingdom to rule, how is my glory in that? If you make me a beggar, what can I lose? ” It can take you to the top, it can pull you to the bottom, and you accept it, fine, if He wants this, he asks, I'm happy. Thank you, Baba Ji. Baba Ji, it is really really possible for the mind to make sacrifices, as long as it is tied to our "I"? The mind always demands something to make up for it every sacrifice he makes. This is due to the way we have programmed the mind. Depending on the program you put in it, the mind will behave. The mind was not always like that. That's why mystics try to explain to us that what you did out of your mind this was not the case originally. "Oh, mind, you are the embodiment of the divine Light, recognize your origin! ” So Adi granth tells us, recognize your true self. The mind was not so calculating, as it is now, by our action. Our impressions, the way we communicate with the world, we created this program in ourselves, when we calculate everything. So we have to delete that program and upload a new one, with the help of which I will do the right things - be more objective in life, instead of just subjecting everything to calculation. Thank you. Baba Ji, what would you say what should be our efforts - of course we should meditate - but sometimes we don't do it, we lack, as I would say, we miss the right moment to really sit down, sometimes we just can't. How do we ensure that we are consistent in meditation, Baba Ji? This follows on from the previous question, which concerned the mind. You know, the mind is a very strong entity. If the mind does not feel a strong need, she is not willing to make sacrifices. Today, most of us don't feel we need anything; we take things for granted. Everything that has been given to us all that He has blessed us with - we just take it for granted. But when you feel the need for something… you know, it's like when someone sees something beautiful in a store, if he wants to, what will he do? Make every effort - will save, talk about money, and whatever, so he can buy the thing. So today we are at a stage where really… I mean, He gave us everything and we don't appreciate it enough. How would you feel if your children didn't respect you? We sacrificed a lot for them, and if they didn't respect you, and you know, once a year or once a week they would just call you and say, hello, how would you feel then? And do we respect the Lord? He gave us everything bless us all and rather than take the time to thank him, show him gratitude we say we don't ever have - you have time for the world you have time for others you have time for everything except Him. "Where our wishes are, we abide." And at the very end, what were your thoughts, what did you focus on that is what will come before you. And if that was the world you focused your attention on, then you will come back to this world. So unless you shift your attention from worldly things to God, how can you expect to go home? Yes. Baba Ji, despite our efforts, sometimes we just can't concentrate, it's for us… Nobody wants you to concentrate. Maharaja said whether the mind is present or not, you sit down. Good? Meditate because your Master wants you to meditate, and not because of what you get for it. Let's start analyzing - today is a good day, tomorrow is a bad day - it does not matter. The Grand Master said "Whether you come with successes or failures, at least come! ” Whether you come up with your successes or failures, come. Yes. If we meditate at the same time every day, Baba Ji, does it affect? It helps. I wouldn't say… this thing, but it helps because you have formed a certain time, an association, it will be easier to concentrate. Thank you, Baba Ji. Baba Ji, you would help us understand the difference between religion and spirituality? You start with spirituality. Spirituality is the core. So you start with spirituality. Spirituality is the foundation. And as time goes on and the crowds are growing, so you know organizations are being formed, and the four walls of religion will emerge. In fact, the English term for religion comes from the Latin religare, which means to bind, where a group of people ties together a common goal. What is a common goal? Knowledge of God. Isn't that the goal of every religion? Then why are we separated? Baba Ji, on various occasions I meet teens, who have a problem with one of the four conditions and they can't get over it. In particular, some people do not understand why it's not okay to drink alcohol. I think vegetarianism, a lot of people understand that, because it is associated with great karma. Or sometimes why it is necessary to be with one partner all the time, because nowadays it's becoming so easy for people go ahead and try another partnership, even if it is a state after marriage. Would you help us better understand these four conditions? The point of view can change during life, circumstances may change, the weather may change - but moral laws can't change, can they? Yes, today's young people they want to go out together first they want somehow better known before they take a major step. But what turns out? It is a question of arranged marriages versus marriage of love. What is the percentage of marriage out of love, which succeeded, as opposed to marriages arranged? In an arranged marriage you enter the bundle, where you are willing somehow keep the balance and learn to respect each other. To marriage out of love you enter with pre-created opinions. And no one can live up to expectations, that you have created. When you meet you go on a date and so you are showing off your best behavior. Everyone behaves as best they can. And if you get married, then really the man you know. You can really know a person only if you live with him day and night. Otherwise you only see the form he plays. Can you really get to know something like this? You will live with someone for eight, nine years, and then the person does something, and you think… did I even know the man? But there are no expectations in a arranged marriage. You know you have to get along somehow. There are many expectations in a marriage of love. The problem is often, Baba Ji, that people feel that all family relationships have been given to them - they could not choose the main life relationships. They all somehow got into the ring. And they feel that the only relationship Which they can choose is marriage. And that's an argument they often come up with. And can you? Can you really choose? Did you choose? I don't, Baba Ji, but people tend to say it. This is it - that we all have this predetermined idea, that we make free choices in life. Do you really have the freedom to make decisions? The decisions you make today are based on certain factors, right? For example, in what country were you born, the education you received parents you had - kind, complicated, strict, traumatic. All of these factors have programmed your current state. And none are in your hands. So what free will you are talking about? Free will means that I have free choice. If you don't like me, I should be allowed to hit you freely. But it restricts your freedom. That's why the company has created rules social laws, where even this freedom is restricted. We need to work within a certain framework. Freedom means I can drive on which side of the street I want. But i can't because if I do, there will be an accident. That is why a social structure was created, laws were made. So functioning within a certain discipline will help you to… The basis is maturity. Am I ready to make the right decisions? And especially when we are young. You know, in your youth, they say first love - a little curiosity, and a little nonsense - this is first love. How many of us can handle it? But I'm not saying… I am not against marriage out of love. But to say that a marriage should be out of love, and not an arranged marriage, or arranged marriage, not a marriage of love - it depends on the circumstances culture and other things. But never think that you can meet someone based on a few meetings only. You can't. What about alcohol, Baba Ji? Well, you've already answered that question yourself. On the one hand, you want freedom and on the other hand you take something what deprives you of logic, reasoning, everything. Where, then, is freedom? On the one hand, you want to control things. And on the other hand, you take something which will deprive you of the ability to control. It will deprive you of the ability to think. Erases the difference between good and bad. Isn't that a contradiction? Baba Ji, people are looking for a way to relax. Can you give us another alternative? How to know what to do so we don't have to depend on these things? Look… again it leads us to alcohol and drugs and the like. It will help the mind relax, but for how long? If my mind is at peace if I'm reconciled to everyone, I'm relaxed But when I drink alcohol, it calms me down for an hour or two, and then in the morning - are my problems gone? In addition to my problems, I have a headache, and I have other worries because I could say something in that state to someone who took it wrong. So what did I achieve? It's a delusion that it will help you relax, or that it will relieve you of problems. Nothing will disappear, it's still with you. Do something to get rid of problems. Do something for you reconcile with herself, what will help you to be at peace with yourself. There is intoxication by Us. Yes, I mean ... "Colored by Us, they will be intoxicated by bliss day and night." Baba Ji, is it really possible to get rid of mind calculations? And if we stop her, do we automatically find that peace inside? You know, you programmed the mind. The mind is subject to impressions. So our knowledge, our education, all this programmed the mind, and this program works through calculation, ok? Like I said, we just need to get rid of everything. Today, the mind of each of us - the moment someone tells us something mind, consciously or subconsciously, begins to operate, and evaluates, “That's good, bad. Should I respond? I shouldn't react. Did he say something nice? Did he say something wrong? ” It's automatic. Be able to cancel the whole program, it will take time and that's what we're trying to do. We're trying to silence her, we try to learn to be objective, rather than reacting. Today's life is reactive. We must be objective. Baba Ji, Sardar Bahadur said: "No man has attained spiritual freedom using logic. " And on the other hand, we say that before we get on the road, we have to use logical reasoning, and not blindly follow the path. When you get on the road, you use logic. As soon as you arrive cestu That's it … Then there are the deeds. Is it surrender? "No man has achieved spiritual freedom through logic." Is this surrender? Look, we all come from a certain background. Someone was born into a Hindu family, in the family of Muslims, Sikhs, Christians - we come from different backgrounds. It takes some time before we can find a relationship to this philosophy. Because we can't do otherwise. As we said, the mind runs according to the program. We necessarily look at things from a certain point of view. And so, to a certain extent, We need to use logic and think so we can decide what to do. To find a relationship. Once we have a relationship with the journey, deeds must come. And when you start acting, this event of yours will help you more than just knowledge. Initially, we work on the basis of our knowledge, we use logic and reasoning. But activity will bring personal experience. And with that - the more experience we have, the more we realize how inferior we are in relation to an unknown part of his life, and that we can never do it. And then we begin to seek His grace. And when you begin to seek His grace… a beggar cannot dictate conditions. And so he submits, and he reaches out with both hands so he can get something. Thank you, Baba Ji. Baba Ji, when a satsangi follows the rules of Sant Matu all his life, but not in the end does not hear Sound, what will happen to him? I don't think I want to answer that, because I don't want to break anyone's ... You know, the main thing is, there's Shabd. Shabda does not increase or decrease, the light does not increase or decrease. What's diminishing or increasing is your attention, how attentive you are. If you are focused, whether you are initiated or not - you know, sometimes we think that only initiates can hear - it has nothing to do with it. You will hear Sabd the moment you are focused, even if you are not initiated. However, initiation teaches us how to direct it. When you are not initiated, you say to yourself what a weird sound I hear. Or you go to the doctor and complain that you have a hearing problem. And so initiation helps us understand be attentive appreciate the state we are in. But finally, if you don't concentrate enough then what will you achieve with your meditation? It is like, when a child goes to school but does not learn. So I can go to school every day, but if I don't learn anything, will I pass the exams? AND… I'd say it's hard to say that someone meditates regularly, and at the same time does not hear the Sound. You know, we've got our own idea, what the sound should be. And so someone tells us you will hear a sound similar to this, similar, not exactly. Sound like this or that. And now, depending on the impressions your mind keeps, if you are a person from the western world, you will hear some musical instrument of the west; If you are Indian, you will hear the Indian instrument. The sound is there. And at some stage in his life, each of us heard it. I would... I can say one hundred percent that there is no one who would be in the human body, and he would not hear the Sound. But we may not know him, or we didn't notice him, or we didn't know what it was. So you just went through it without appreciating it. Thank you, Baba Ji.

<text sub="clublinks" start="324.266" dur="2.334"> That can't even be calculated, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="326.6" dur="3.666"> after all we've been through, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="330.266" dur="1.934"> what pain and suffering we had to experience, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="332.2" dur="1.866"> to gain this status, </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="353.866" dur="2.334"> Thank you, Baba Ji. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="356.2" dur="7.266"> Hazura, what is the difference between love and addiction? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="363.466" dur="1.534"> Love helps you grow up </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="365" dur="3.733"> addiction pulls you down. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="368.733" dur="2.6"> You know, I mean, like we talked about last time, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="371.333" dur="3.867"> love ... we really don't know what love is. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="375.2" dur="6"> Love, love is something beyond our comprehension. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="381.2" dur="2.466"> You must learn to give love. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="383.666" dur="5.4"> There is a beautiful quote from Krishnamurti, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="389.066" dur="6.534"> where he says that it is difficult to explain or understand love. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="395.6" dur="4.333"> But we can certainly talk about what love is not. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="399.933" dur="2.2"> Love is a positive quality. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="402.133" dur="2.067"> When we say we love someone, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="404.2" dur="1.266"> we start to be jealous </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="405.466" dur="1.267"> we don't want to share </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="406.733" dur="1.8"> we are domineering, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="408.533" dur="2.333"> and these are negative features. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="410.866" dur="2.267"> And it's not love. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="413.133" dur="3.533"> Love is something that lifts us. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="416.666" dur="8.534"> Love is something that leads us beyond the physical. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="425.2" dur="5.466"> So, in fact, we try through a spiritual process, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="430.666" dur="3.134"> open to love. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="433.8" dur="2.266"> You know, most of us are programmed, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="436.066" dur="6.2"> and therefore we experience only a certain aspect of this love. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="442.266" dur="3.334"> Until you open up completely, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="445.6" dur="3.466"> you cannot experience love. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="450.266" dur="1"> Thank you, Hazura. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="452.8" dur="3.4"> Hazura, I have two questions. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="456.2" dur="2.266"> First, you explained beautifully to us, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="458.466" dur="6.134"> as we evolved through 8.4 million species of beings until human birth. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="464.6" dur="5.133"> Many people are subject to the misconception that </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="469.733" dur="3.667"> that when we have gone through evolution and received human birth, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="473.4" dur="3.333"> we ended all the karma we had to go through, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="476.733" dur="3.933"> and then ascended to human birth. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="480.666" dur="4.334"> But I would like to point out that even after obtaining human birth </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="485" dur="1.933"> with the grace of God, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="486.933" dur="4.067"> we are still sure of our sinchine or storage karma. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="491" dur="4.266"> You know, we shouldn't get bogged down in things like sinchine karma, fateful karma, etc. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="495.266" dur="1.934"> We use these terms only as a means of explanation. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="497.2" dur="2.333"> All we need to know is </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="499.533" dur="4.333"> that we are part of a karmic cobweb. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="503.866" dur="1.4"> Being part of the web of karma means </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="505.266" dur="2.2"> that we still have karma. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="507.466" dur="3.4"> We have a body - that means karma, you know? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="510.866" dur="4.8"> Whether we are good or bad. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="515.666" dur="4.334"> Until we ascend over it, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="520" dur="4.133"> This cycle will continue, right? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="524.133" dur="5.467"> "You will be responsible for every action you take." </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="529.6" dur="2.666"> Therefore, once we go through the consequences, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="532.266" dur="2.534"> it means we still have karma. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="534.8" dur="3.4"> That is, as long as we are in the body, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="538.2" dur="3.2"> we do deeds. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="541.4" dur="4.866"> But if we want to attain salvation, we must rise above karma. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="546.266" dur="4"> Now we often ask about good and bad karma - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="550.266" dur="2.267"> if someone does good deeds and devotes himself to charity… </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="552.533" dur="1.133"> We have a saying: </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="553.666" dur="2.534"> "Renunciation leads to the throne, and reign leads to hell!" </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="556.2" dur="1.6"> Someone can do good deeds and do charity - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="557.8" dur="2.4"> and accumulates very good karma. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="560.2" dur="1"> Once he has good karma, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="561.2" dur="1.8"> he will return as a king or ruler. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="563" dur="1.666"> When he returns as king or ruler, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="564.666" dur="2.6"> succumbs to sensory pleasures, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="567.266" dur="2"> and will have to be responsible for it, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="569.266" dur="2.134"> and so the cycle continues. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="571.4" dur="1.933"> That is why Adi Granth says </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="573.333" dur="5.733"> "He is superior to gifts, charity and renunciation. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="579.066" dur="2.534"> A language that repeats the Name of God, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="581.6" dur="2.866"> it will lead a person to fulfillment. " </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="584.466" dur="3.6"> The kind of devotion that surpasses all its other kinds, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="588.066" dur="2.8"> is meditation on Us, meditation on Shabd. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="590.866" dur="3.534"> And as soon as we meditate on Shabd, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="594.4" dur="2.533"> when we start meditating </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="596.933" dur="1.333"> then as the Master in Adi granth says: </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="598.266" dur="3.2"> "Go where you can get God's Us. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="601.466" dur="4.734"> Thanks to the Master's grace, engage in meditation. " </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="606.2" dur="3.2"> So until we meditate on this Us - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="609.4" dur="5.4"> because the only way to compare your karmic accounts </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="614.8" dur="1"> is Shabd. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="615.8" dur="2.533"> "Sabd will erase the trace of karma, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="618.333" dur="2.333"> Shabd will connect you with the original Shabd. " </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="620.666" dur="1.534"> There is no other way. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="622.2" dur="1.8"> Without him, everyone will be trapped in a web of karma. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="624" dur="3.6"> Good karma, bad karma - debit and credit will continue. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="627.6" dur="1"> And even if we have to sincere karma, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="628.6" dur="2.2"> will be deleted by Shabd. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="630.8" dur="4.8"> You know, we can never erase our karma. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="635.6" dur="2.533"> He will take our responsibility </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="638.133" dur="3"> and will lift us above all this. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="641.133" dur="1.467"> Simply put, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="642.6" dur="3.866"> we do not have the strength and power. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="646.466" dur="1.8"> Whatever we create - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="648.266" dur="2.734"> good karma, bad karma - it will continue. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="651" dur="2.8"> But as soon as we turn to Him, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="653.8" dur="1.933"> as soon as we submit </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="655.733" dur="4.133"> will take our responsibility - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="659.866" dur="3.734"> only then can we rise above this state of ours. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="663.6" dur="2.333"> My second question, Baba Ji, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="665.933" dur="4.333"> it is said that a disciple who seeks refuge with his Master </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="670.266" dur="1.934"> and engages in meditation practice, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="672.2" dur="3.4"> goes through three stages. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="675.6" dur="2.666"> The first is patience, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="678.266" dur="2.334"> the second is satisfaction, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="680.6" dur="1.933"> and the third is gratitude. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="682.533" dur="4.267"> I would like to ask you to explain these three stages. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="686.8" dur="2.666"> We are back on the topic of surrender. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="689.466" dur="5.2"> The first two basically mean patience </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="694.666" dur="4.4"> and submission - where is His will our commandment, right? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="699.066" dur="1.934"> Once everything is His will, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="701" dur="2"> and we live in His will, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="703" dur="3.666"> then we no longer distinguish anything. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="706.666" dur="2.6"> "He considers pleasure and pain to be the same, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="709.266" dur="2.067"> and does not distinguish between triumph and shame. " </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="711.333" dur="1.533"> So what would be the contradictions? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="712.866" dur="2"> Then there is nothing to classify as good and bad, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="714.866" dur="3.067"> because then we accept everything as His will, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="717.933" dur="2.667"> we know it's good for us to get it from God. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="720.6" dur="0.866"> Then there is no contradiction left. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="721.466" dur="4.134"> So we stepped out of the realm of patience into satisfaction. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="725.6" dur="4.866"> Then we ... it's subordination, we have to surrender. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="730.466" dur="2.2"> Thank you Baba Ji. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="733.8" dur="5.8"> Baba Ji, we all struggle with decision-making in life, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="739.6" dur="2.8"> and if we are on our way, how can we know </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="742.4" dur="5.6"> that the decisions we are trying to make are the right ones? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="748" dur="1.933"> We learn through experience. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="749.933" dur="2.733"> I don't think anyone was ever born </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="752.666" dur="4.2"> with such a degree of maturity that he would know everything. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="756.866" dur="5.6"> Look - the evolution of life is like waking up, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="762.466" dur="2.734"> we experience something every day. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="765.2" dur="5.4"> And these experiences teach us: good, bad. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="770.6" dur="3.4"> So no one knows. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="774" dur="2.866"> We have to go through our experience. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="776.866" dur="2"> "Experience teaches young people to be old, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="778.866" dur="3.2"> and old to be young. " </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="782.066" dur="2.4"> So as a general rule, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="784.466" dur="4.534"> whatever brings us to our goal - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="789" dur="2"> - God, that's good. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="791" dur="2"> Whatever distracts us from our goal, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="793" dur="2.866"> we should avoid this. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="795.866" dur="2.4"> But if our intentions are correct </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="798.266" dur="3.134"> and the decisions we have made, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="801.4" dur="2.4"> don't suit someone else, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="803.8" dur="1.733"> how to look at it? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="805.533" dur="4.067"> No decision you make will suit everyone. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="809.6" dur="1.8"> It is your life experience </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="811.4" dur="3.2"> completely different from someone else's experience. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="814.6" dur="3"> What is food for one may be poison for another. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="817.6" dur="2.666"> The medicine that suits you will not suit everyone. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="820.266" dur="2.8"> They may have a reaction to it. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="823.066" dur="2.867"> So from our point of view, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="825.933" dur="3.2"> whatever experience has taught us, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="829.133" dur="1.867"> whatever we think is right - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="831" dur="2.533"> we have to decide, we have to move on. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="833.533" dur="1.867"> However, this does not necessarily mean </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="835.4" dur="2.4"> that everyone agrees with the decision, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="837.8" dur="2.8"> and that it will suit everyone. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="840.6" dur="3.2"> So we shouldn't stamp, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="843.8" dur="2.066"> but to come up with a solution that we think is right, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="845.866" dur="2.334"> and then listen to the other one, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="848.2" dur="2.2"> find out what experience has taught him, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="850.4" dur="2.066"> what is his point of view </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="852.466" dur="3.534"> and then try to come to a common conclusion. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="856" dur="4.066"> My second question, Baba Ji, is how to distinguish </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="860.066" dur="6.4"> between a happy life and a successful life? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="866.466" dur="1.8"> I don't know what success is. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="868.266" dur="3.934"> Today, the scale of success has changed. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="872.2" dur="2.466"> In the good old days, success was </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="874.666" dur="2.534"> when people respected you </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="877.2" dur="4.2"> you stood for your ideals, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="881.4" dur="1.8"> for their opinions, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="883.2" dur="2.266"> then you were a very respected person. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="885.466" dur="1.534"> That has changed nowadays. No? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="887" dur="3.066"> Today we see money, we see wealth, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="890.066" dur="4.534"> everything is measured in terms of material things. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="894.6" dur="4.8"> But we do not get satisfaction from these things. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="899.4" dur="1.4"> They just stimulate the taste, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="900.8" dur="2.666"> they arouse in us the desire to have more and more. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="903.466" dur="2.134"> Satisfaction must come from within, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="905.6" dur="2.266"> when you compare yourself to yourself. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="907.866" dur="2.2"> If you are aligned with yourself, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="910.066" dur="2"> you are happy with yourself </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="912.066" dur="3.2"> no matter who says anything about you, it doesn't change anything. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="915.266" dur="1.467"> And that has nothing to do with </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="916.733" dur="4.267"> how poor or rich you are. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="921" dur="4.133"> Satisfied means learning to live in His will and accept it. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="925.133" dur="1.867"> "If you give me the kingdom to rule, how is my glory in that? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="927" dur="3.466"> If you make me a beggar, what can I lose? ” </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="930.466" dur="1.734"> It can take you to the top, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="932.2" dur="2.533"> it can pull you to the bottom, and you accept it, fine, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="934.733" dur="6.2"> if He wants this, he asks, I'm happy. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="940.933" dur="1.867"> Thank you, Baba Ji. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="942.8" dur="2.733"> Baba Ji, it is really really possible </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="945.533" dur="2.067"> for the mind to make sacrifices, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="947.6" dur="3.066"> as long as it is tied to our "I"? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="950.666" dur="3.467"> The mind always demands something to make up for it </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="954.133" dur="4"> every sacrifice he makes. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="958.133" dur="4.333"> This is due to the way we have programmed the mind. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="962.466" dur="2.134"> Depending on the program you put in it, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="964.6" dur="1.666"> the mind will behave. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="966.266" dur="3.6"> The mind was not always like that. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="969.866" dur="3.534"> That's why mystics try to explain to us </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="973.4" dur="2.8"> that what you did out of your mind </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="976.2" dur="2"> this was not the case originally. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="978.2" dur="2.533"> "Oh, mind, you are the embodiment of the divine Light, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="980.733" dur="2.733"> recognize your origin! ” </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="983.466" dur="4.734"> So Adi granth tells us, recognize your true self. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="988.2" dur="4.466"> The mind was not so calculating, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="992.666" dur="2.4"> as it is now, by our action. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="995.066" dur="3.534"> Our impressions, the way we communicate with the world, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="998.6" dur="3.333"> we created this program in ourselves, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1001.933" dur="2.533"> when we calculate everything. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1004.466" dur="4.8"> So we have to delete that program and upload a new one, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1009.266" dur="3.2"> with the help of which I will do the right things - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1012.466" dur="2.534"> be more objective in life, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1015" dur="4.8"> instead of just subjecting everything to calculation. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1019.8" dur="0.666"> Thank you. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1020.466" dur="2.4"> Baba Ji, what would you say </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1022.866" dur="2.6"> what should be our efforts - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1025.466" dur="1.467"> of course we should meditate - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1026.933" dur="2.133"> but sometimes we don't do it, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1029.066" dur="3.8"> we lack, as I would say, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1032.866" dur="4.4"> we miss the right moment to really sit down, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1037.266" dur="1.8"> sometimes we just can't. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1039.066" dur="3.2"> How do we ensure that we are consistent in meditation, Baba Ji? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1042.266" dur="1.6"> This follows on from the previous question, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1043.866" dur="2.134"> which concerned the mind. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1046" dur="2.6"> You know, the mind is a very strong entity. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1048.6" dur="2.866"> If the mind does not feel a strong need, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1051.466" dur="2.334"> she is not willing to make sacrifices. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1053.8" dur="2.266"> Today, most of us don't feel we need anything; </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1056.066" dur="1.4"> we take things for granted. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1057.466" dur="2"> Everything that has been given to us </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1059.466" dur="1.4"> all that He has blessed us with - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1060.866" dur="2.334"> we just take it for granted. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1063.2" dur="2.8"> But when you feel the need for something… </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1066" dur="3.2"> you know, it's like when someone sees something beautiful in a store, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1069.2" dur="2.066"> if he wants to, what will he do? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1071.266" dur="1.6"> Make every effort - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1072.866" dur="2.267"> will save, talk about money, and whatever, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1075.133" dur="3.133"> so he can buy the thing. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1078.266" dur="4.067"> So today we are at a stage where really… </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1082.333" dur="3.267"> I mean, He gave us everything and </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1085.6" dur="2.933"> we don't appreciate it enough. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1088.533" dur="2.333"> How would you feel </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1090.866" dur="1.934"> if your children didn't respect you? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1092.8" dur="1.6"> We sacrificed a lot for them, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1094.4" dur="2.466"> and if they didn't respect you, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1096.866" dur="1.934"> and you know, once a year or once a week </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1098.8" dur="2.666"> they would just call you and say, hello, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1101.466" dur="1.334"> how would you feel then? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1102.8" dur="3.066"> And do we respect the Lord? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1105.866" dur="1.467"> He gave us everything </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1107.333" dur="1.667"> bless us all </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1109" dur="3.466"> and rather than take the time to thank him, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1112.466" dur="2.134"> show him gratitude </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1114.6" dur="1.6"> we say we don't ever have - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1116.2" dur="1.333"> you have time for the world </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1117.533" dur="1.2"> you have time for others </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1118.733" dur="2.733"> you have time for everything except Him. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1121.466" dur="1.8"> "Where our wishes are, we abide." </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1123.266" dur="2.934"> And at the very end, what were your thoughts, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1126.2" dur="1.866"> what did you focus on </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1128.066" dur="2.2"> that is what will come before you. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1130.266" dur="1.934"> And if that was the world you focused your attention on, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1132.2" dur="3.266"> then you will come back to this world. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1135.466" dur="2.134"> So unless you shift your attention </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1137.6" dur="2.6"> from worldly things to God, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1140.2" dur="2"> how can you expect to go home? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1142.2" dur="1.066"> Yes. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1143.266" dur="1.4"> Baba Ji, despite our efforts, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1144.666" dur="2.267"> sometimes we just can't concentrate, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1146.933" dur="0.867"> it's for us… </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1147.8" dur="1.8"> Nobody wants you to concentrate. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1149.6" dur="1.466"> Maharaja said </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1151.066" dur="3.6"> whether the mind is present or not, you sit down. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1154.666" dur="1.267"> Good? Meditate </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1155.933" dur="2.133"> because your Master wants you to meditate, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1158.066" dur="2.334"> and not because of what you get for it. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1160.4" dur="2.6"> Let's start analyzing - today is a good day, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1163" dur="0.933"> tomorrow is a bad day - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1163.933" dur="2.867"> it does not matter. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1166.8" dur="1.133"> The Grand Master said </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1167.933" dur="2.267"> "Whether you come with successes or failures, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1170.2" dur="1.8"> at least come! ” </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1172" dur="4"> Whether you come up with your successes or failures, come. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1176" dur="1.2"> Yes. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1177.2" dur="2.4"> If we meditate at the same time every day, Baba Ji, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1179.6" dur="1.6"> does it affect? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1181.2" dur="1.066"> It helps. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1182.266" dur="2.734"> I wouldn't say… this thing, but it helps </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1185" dur="3.4"> because you have formed a certain time, an association, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1188.4" dur="1.8"> it will be easier to concentrate. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1190.2" dur="1.6"> Thank you, Baba Ji. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1191.8" dur="2.066"> Baba Ji, you would help us understand the difference </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1193.866" dur="3.134"> between religion and spirituality? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1197" dur="2.533"> You start with spirituality. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1199.533" dur="3.067"> Spirituality is the core. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1202.6" dur="1.8"> So you start with spirituality. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1204.4" dur="2.266"> Spirituality is the foundation. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1206.666" dur="2.134"> And as time goes on </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1208.8" dur="3.8"> and the crowds are growing, so you know </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1212.6" dur="1.933"> organizations are being formed, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1214.533" dur="2.933"> and the four walls of religion will emerge. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1217.466" dur="2.534"> In fact, the English term for religion comes from the Latin religare, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1220" dur="2.2"> which means to bind, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1222.2" dur="3.6"> where a group of people </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1225.8" dur="3.2"> ties together a common goal. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1229" dur="1.666"> What is a common goal? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1230.666" dur="2.2"> Knowledge of God. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1232.866" dur="3.334"> Isn't that the goal of every religion? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1236.2" dur="3.2"> Then why are we separated? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1241.866" dur="2.534"> Baba Ji, on various occasions </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1244.4" dur="2.4"> I meet teens, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1246.8" dur="3.4"> who have a problem with one of the four conditions </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1250.2" dur="2.8"> and they can't get over it. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1253" dur="2.266"> In particular, some people do not understand </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1255.266" dur="2.2"> why it's not okay to drink alcohol. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1257.466" dur="2"> I think vegetarianism, a lot of people understand that, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1259.466" dur="2.334"> because it is associated with great karma. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1261.8" dur="2.4"> Or sometimes why it is necessary </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1264.2" dur="1.666"> to be with one partner all the time, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1265.866" dur="2.4"> because nowadays it's becoming so easy for people </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1268.266" dur="3.134"> go ahead and try another partnership, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1271.4" dur="2.2"> even if it is a state after marriage. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1273.6" dur="5"> Would you help us better understand these four conditions? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1278.6" dur="3"> The point of view can change during life, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1281.6" dur="2.2"> circumstances may change, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1283.8" dur="1.266"> the weather may change - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1285.066" dur="4.134"> but moral laws can't change, can they? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1289.2" dur="3"> Yes, today's young people </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1292.2" dur="1.266"> they want to go out together first </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1293.466" dur="1.4"> they want somehow </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1294.866" dur="3.667"> better known before they take a major step. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1298.533" dur="2.333"> But what turns out? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1300.866" dur="1.867"> It is a question of arranged marriages </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1302.733" dur="2.533"> versus marriage of love. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1305.266" dur="2"> What is the percentage of marriage out of love, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1307.266" dur="3.267"> which succeeded, as opposed to marriages arranged? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1310.533" dur="1.933"> In an arranged marriage </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1312.466" dur="3.334"> you enter the bundle, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1315.8" dur="1.933"> where you are willing </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1317.733" dur="3.867"> somehow keep the balance </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1321.6" dur="3.2"> and learn to respect each other. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1324.8" dur="1.133"> To marriage out of love </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1325.933" dur="3.333"> you enter with pre-created opinions. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1329.266" dur="4.467"> And no one can live up to expectations, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1333.733" dur="1.867"> that you have created. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1335.6" dur="1.8"> When you meet </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1337.4" dur="1.533"> you go on a date and so </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1338.933" dur="2.067"> you are showing off your best behavior. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1341" dur="2.2"> Everyone behaves as best they can. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1343.2" dur="5.533"> And if you get married, then really the man </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1348.733" dur="0.867"> you know. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1349.6" dur="1.266"> You can really know a person </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="1354.8" dur="3"> Otherwise you only see </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1357.8" dur="3.266"> the form he plays. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1361.066" dur="1.6"> Can you really get to know something like this? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1362.666" dur="2"> You will live with someone for eight, nine years, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1364.666" dur="3"> and then the person does something, and you think… </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1367.666" dur="3.534"> did I even know the man? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1371.2" dur="3.466"> But there are no expectations in a arranged marriage. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1374.666" dur="2.534"> You know you have to get along somehow. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1377.2" dur="3"> There are many expectations in a marriage of love. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1380.2" dur="2.4"> The problem is often, Baba Ji, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1382.6" dur="3.733"> that people feel that all family relationships have been given to them - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1386.333" dur="2.267"> they could not choose the main life relationships. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1388.6" dur="1.666"> They all somehow got into the ring. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1390.266" dur="1.8"> And they feel that the only relationship </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1392.066" dur="1.334"> Which they can choose is marriage. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1393.4" dur="2.266"> And that's an argument they often come up with. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1395.666" dur="1.267"> And can you? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1396.933" dur="1.933"> Can you really choose? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1398.866" dur="0.8"> Did you choose? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1399.666" dur="3.2"> I don't, Baba Ji, but people tend to say it. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1402.866" dur="1.6"> This is it - </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="1410.4" dur="4.066"> Do you really have the freedom to make decisions? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1414.466" dur="2.134"> The decisions you make today </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1416.6" dur="3.533"> are based on certain factors, right? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1420.133" dur="2.933"> For example, in what country were you born, </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="1426" dur="1.866"> parents you had - </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="1432.466" dur="3.867"> All of these factors have programmed your current state. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1436.333" dur="3.267"> And none are in your hands. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1439.6" dur="3.066"> So what free will you are talking about? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1442.666" dur="3.6"> Free will means that I have free choice. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1446.266" dur="1.134"> If you don't like me, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1447.4" dur="2.066"> I should be allowed to hit you freely. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1449.466" dur="2.667"> But it restricts your freedom. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1452.133" dur="2.867"> That's why the company has created rules </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="1462.533" dur="3.133"> Freedom means I can drive on which side of the street I want. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1465.666" dur="2.067"> But i can't </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1467.733" dur="3.867"> because if I do, there will be an accident. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1471.6" dur="1.733"> That is why a social structure was created, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1473.333" dur="2.667"> laws were made. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1476" dur="3.466"> So functioning within a certain discipline </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="1537" dur="3.933"> What about alcohol, Baba Ji? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1540.933" dur="2.267"> Well, you've already answered that question yourself. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1543.2" dur="2.066"> On the one hand, you want freedom </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="1568.8" dur="2.266"> Isn't that a contradiction? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1571.066" dur="2.667"> Baba Ji, people are looking for a way to relax. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1573.733" dur="2.733"> Can you give us another alternative? </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="1583.666" dur="3.8"> It will help the mind relax, but for how long? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1587.466" dur="2.2"> If my mind is at peace </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="1615.266" dur="2.8"> So what did I achieve? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1618.066" dur="3.067"> It's a delusion that it will help you relax, </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="1659.866" dur="2.4"> You know, you programmed the mind. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1662.266" dur="2.067"> The mind is subject to impressions. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1664.333" dur="3"> So our knowledge, our education, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1667.333" dur="2.733"> all this programmed the mind, </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="1679.266" dur="1.934"> Today, the mind of each of us - </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="1683.266" dur="1.4"> mind, consciously or subconsciously, </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="1692.6" dur="3.133"> It's automatic. </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="1704.333" dur="1.933"> we try to learn to be objective, </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="1708.266" dur="1.934"> Today's life is reactive. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1710.2" dur="2.4"> We must be objective. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1717" dur="2.133"> Baba Ji, Sardar Bahadur said: </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1719.133" dur="3.067"> "No man has attained spiritual freedom </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1722.2" dur="2.066"> using logic. " </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1724.266" dur="4.2"> And on the other hand, we say that before we get on the road, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1728.466" dur="1.8"> we have to use logical reasoning, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1730.266" dur="2"> and not blindly follow the path. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1732.266" dur="2.667"> When you get on the road, you use logic. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1734.933" dur="3"> As soon as you arrive cestu </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1737.933" dur="0.6"> That's it … </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1738.533" dur="1.067"> Then there are the deeds. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1739.6" dur="1.466"> Is it surrender? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1741.066" dur="2.534"> "No man has achieved spiritual freedom through logic." </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1743.6" dur="2.8"> Is this surrender? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1746.4" dur="4.6"> Look, we all come from a certain background. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1751" dur="2.066"> Someone was born into a Hindu family, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1753.066" dur="2.934"> in the family of Muslims, Sikhs, Christians - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1756" dur="1.666"> we come from different backgrounds. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1757.666" dur="4.267"> It takes some time before we can find a relationship </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1761.933" dur="1.467"> to this philosophy. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1763.4" dur="1.8"> Because we can't do otherwise. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1765.2" dur="1.466"> As we said, the mind runs according to the program. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1766.666" dur="2.8"> We necessarily look at things from a certain point of view. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1769.466" dur="1"> And so, to a certain extent, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1770.466" dur="2.734"> We need to use logic and think </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1773.2" dur="5.333"> so we can decide what to do. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1778.533" dur="2.667"> To find a relationship. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1781.2" dur="2.133"> Once we have a relationship with the journey, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1783.333" dur="4.067"> deeds must come. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1787.4" dur="1.533"> And when you start acting, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1788.933" dur="1.733"> this event of yours will help you </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1790.666" dur="2.734"> more than just knowledge. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1793.4" dur="3.8"> Initially, we work on the basis of our knowledge, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1797.2" dur="2.666"> we use logic and reasoning. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1799.866" dur="5"> But activity will bring personal experience. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1804.866" dur="0.934"> And with that - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1805.8" dur="2.066"> the more experience we have, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1807.866" dur="4.2"> the more we realize how inferior we are </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="1815.2" dur="3.333"> and that we can never do it. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1818.533" dur="3.067"> And then we begin to seek His grace. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1821.6" dur="2.066"> And when you begin to seek His grace… </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1823.666" dur="2.534"> a beggar cannot dictate conditions. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1826.2" dur="2"> And so he submits, </text>

<text sub="clublinks" start="1833.066" dur="1"> Thank you, Baba Ji. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1835" dur="5.866"> Baba Ji, when a satsangi follows the rules of Sant Matu all his life, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1840.866" dur="1.6"> but not in the end </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1842.466" dur="1"> does not hear Sound, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1843.466" dur="2.334"> what will happen to him? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1849" dur="2.8"> I don't think I want to answer that, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1851.8" dur="3.866"> because I don't want to break anyone's ... </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1860.2" dur="5.4"> You know, the main thing is, there's Shabd. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1865.6" dur="2.266"> Shabda does not increase or decrease, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1867.866" dur="2.534"> the light does not increase or decrease. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1870.4" dur="4.2"> What's diminishing or increasing is your attention, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1874.6" dur="1.866"> how attentive you are. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1876.466" dur="1"> If you are focused, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1877.466" dur="2.867"> whether you are initiated or not - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1880.333" dur="1.333"> you know, sometimes we think </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1881.666" dur="1.334"> that only initiates can hear - </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1883" dur="2.466"> it has nothing to do with it. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1885.466" dur="3.534"> You will hear Sabd </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1889" dur="3.6"> the moment you are focused, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1892.6" dur="1.6"> even if you are not initiated. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1894.2" dur="3.8"> However, initiation teaches us how to direct it. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1898" dur="1.8"> When you are not initiated, you say to yourself </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1899.8" dur="1.6"> what a weird sound I hear. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1901.4" dur="2.533"> Or you go to the doctor and complain </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1903.933" dur="2.733"> that you have a hearing problem. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1906.666" dur="4.534"> And so initiation helps us understand </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1911.2" dur="1.4"> be attentive </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1912.6" dur="5.133"> appreciate the state we are in. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1917.733" dur="1.067"> But finally, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1918.8" dur="2.466"> if you don't concentrate enough </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1921.266" dur="2.4"> then what will you achieve with your meditation? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1923.666" dur="1.134"> It is like, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1924.8" dur="4.866"> when a child goes to school but does not learn. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1929.666" dur="2.067"> So I can go to school every day, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1931.733" dur="5.2"> but if I don't learn anything, will I pass the exams? </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1936.933" dur="2.6"> AND… </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1939.533" dur="1.467"> I'd say it's hard to say </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1941" dur="3.133"> that someone meditates regularly, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1944.133" dur="3.867"> and at the same time does not hear the Sound. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1948" dur="2"> You know, we've got our own idea, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1950" dur="2.533"> what the sound should be. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1952.533" dur="0.867"> And so someone tells us </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1953.4" dur="2"> you will hear a sound similar to this, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1955.4" dur="2.4"> similar, not exactly. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1957.8" dur="1"> Sound like this or that. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1958.8" dur="3.066"> And now, depending on the impressions your mind keeps, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1961.866" dur="0.867"> if you are a person from the western world, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1962.733" dur="1.867"> you will hear some musical instrument of the west; </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1964.6" dur="2.666"> If you are Indian, you will hear the Indian instrument. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1967.266" dur="2"> The sound is there. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1969.266" dur="2.6"> And at some stage in his life, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1971.866" dur="3.8"> each of us heard it. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1975.666" dur="0.734"> I would... </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1976.4" dur="2.533"> I can say one hundred percent </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1978.933" dur="1.467"> that there is no one </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1980.4" dur="2"> who would be in the human body, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1982.4" dur="3.733"> and he would not hear the Sound. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1986.133" dur="2.733"> But we may not know him, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1988.866" dur="1.467"> or we didn't notice him, </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1990.333" dur="2.467"> or we didn't know what it was. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1992.8" dur="4.333"> So you just went through it without appreciating it. </text>
<text sub="clublinks" start="1997.133" dur="1.2"> Thank you, Baba Ji. </text>
