Spring has arrived in New Mexico and all of its green energy of growth is becoming evident. This time of year gives us the opportunity to cleanse and rejuvenate. It is a time to leave the winter behind and step into a whole new cycle of growth in awareness and consciousness. Yogi Bhajan said this about personal spiritual growth,
“Life is here and now. Life is an environment and circumstance, life is Time and Space. Life is growth and enjoy of that growth. What is the difference between a garden and wilderness? Wilderness is growth, garden is growth. Garden grows in the realms as it should be. It doesn't congest an area, it doesn't leave anything empty, it is all laid down, we call it, what we call it? Landscaping. In wilderness everything grows as it grows. There is no limit and there is no cause for limit or there is a total limit, total desert, total dense jungle, everything is in its own way. That's we call it wilderness. Exactly life has been given Time and Space. You definitely have a certain amount of life. That is called credit. That is called? Students say ‘Credit.’ Now in this credit you have to have a business, business is to master the Time and Space and experience Infinity and that's the way you have to go.” 10/30/79

April already?!... Spring is upon us here in New Mexico, and it is magnificent! As nature wakes from the quiet of winter it’s a wonderful reminder of the magic of the seasons and how wise our mother earth is. April brings Earth Day, a celebration of our beautiful planet. Yogi Bhajan was a tireless advocate of living a clean and green lifestyle. He spoke extensively about our impact on the planet and encouraged us to be conscientious about our lifestyle like in this lecture in Formello, Italy in 1990:
original lecture at the Yogi Bhajan
Library of Teachings™. This particular video
features an “interactive transcript”. Transcript
text scrolls as video plays, or you can select a
section of the transcript and the video moves to
that point and begins to play.
This is a powerful lecture ask us all to think about our impact on the earth. Yogi Bhajan’s comment ‘Next day the same habits, same waste of energy, same waste of water, same pollution’ really stuck with me. I am sure we are all guilty of this to some extent, we have the best intentions but even when we are well informed we don’t always take action and make changes. I had to ask myself ‘ what small choices can I make in my everyday life that would change my footprint on this planet?’ I challenge you to ask yourself the same question.
This month as we celebrate our beautiful Mother Earth consider how we can change our habits so that we can preserve this incredible planet for many generations to come!
To all of you who support this important work of preserving the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, we cannot thank you enough! Your endless support and generous gifts are keeping this resource growing and improving all the time…

Foods for Health & Healing: Recipes and Remedies
Based on the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, PhD
A wonderful little book for every kitchen, this reference gem gives you loads of recipes and remedies to help with strengthening and maintaining every system of your body.
As human beings, we can all use a little nervous system help. This is perhaps especially true as the seasons change, which can bring new stresses to our bodies as they acclimate to the changes. To soothe and strengthen the nervous system, and to please the palate, try this delicious curry that contains the powerful “trinity roots” (onion, garlic and ginger). With trinity roots, lots of steamed veggies and spicy curry, we think this is a perfect recipe for a good inner “spring cleaning”… Enjoy!
1 cup basmati rice
3 cups chopped mixed vegetables
1/4 cup minced ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 small onions, finely chopped
1/2 cup ghee
1 1/2 tsp. crushed yogi tea spices
1 Tbsp. turmeric
1/4 tsp. oregano seeds
1/2 tsp. cumin seeds
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. garam masala
1 cup homemade yogurt

Rinse the rice, add 3 cups water, and bring it to a boil. Simmer for about 45 minutes. Steam chopped mixed vegetables until firm but tender. Blend yogurt and garbanzo flour with 1 cup water until smooth. Sauté spices in ghee until golden-brown. Add chopped onion, garlic and ginger. Cook slowly until onions are almost falling apart. Stir in yogurt-flour mixture. Simmer until sauce thickens. Serve over rice and steamed vegetables. Serves 4.
