Note from Nirvair
Greetings from New Mexico!
Early this month, we are gathering to remember Yogi
Bhajan, ten years after he left his earthly body. You
can find more information on that event at
Yogi Bhajan loved Guru Ram Das and we celebrate Guru Ram
Das’ birthday this month. Guru Ram Das was a humble man
and a great saint and healer. Once, Yogi Bhajan was
asked. “Why Guru Ram Das?” Yogi Bhajan’s response was,
I said, Yeah
because the combination of the imperialness and the
spiritual ness, I am using two words, Combine in one
personality as a total identity and blend and it was
the personality of Guru Ram Das.
You look now on all sages, all messenger of God, all
holy men, all identity, all great people, all
avatars, whatever you want to see there shall be one
thing very common, either they lived very unattached
with the earth and guided, and denounced or they
ruled and pronounced.
Starts a new era in the spiritual world of Guru Ram
Das, he announced and pronounced God is, bhakti and
shakti blended in one identity and that is Guru Ram
I will like you to research the spirituality of the
universe and understand what I am saying those few
words. In all the eras of the universe two things
have come to us separately; either the messenger has
come with utmost denouncement or the messenger has
come with utmost pronouncement and people have
accepted, I am not saying the people have not
accepted but in the identity and the personality and
the reality and the spirituality, the duality of
bhakti and Shakti amalgamated into oneness and that
is what Guru Ram Das is. It was not my decision, I
might have given a different opinion but it was
First time you are supposed to be spiritual, real
and regal and not orphan before your desires. You do
not know real orphan, real orphan is the one who is,
who has no control on his desires, who is weak
within himself, who cannot command his grace against
the race of time and space. What a unfortunate
animal is that and that is what Guru Ram Das
personality stands as a light. It tells us, be
spiritual, be regal, in the duality of the word
don't let your personality fall apart.

This is a wonderful month to chant the
mantra Guru Guru Wahe Guru, Guru Ram Das Guru. It
always fills me with more comfort and relaxation. As
Yogi Bhajan said,
My prayer is, you have walked unto
the house of Guru Ram Das, may you understand Guru
Ram Das, may you love Guru Ram Das, may you feel
Guru Ram Das, may you trust Guru Ram Das, may you be
with Guru Ram Das, may you understand Guru Ram Das
and may you explore and not ignore Guru Ram Das. May
you understand in the thought, action, deed, form,
projection, reality, non-reality and Divinity or
Infinity, that you are nothing but a friend of Guru
Ram Das, student of Guru Ram Das.

wonderful gems of wisdom and powerful messages
throughout his lectures.
Meditation to Relax and Rejoice,
Yogi Bhajan speaks about our connection to our own
spirit and the teacher within. This excerpt stuck with
There is a direct relationship within your inner
being and your being and then you can stand for outer
being. You cannot confront the world. You will always
see one thing very sure. Whenever a man of God talks
about God and truth and his inner being is clear,
outside world always crucifies him. And find out any
case, one case, where a real man of truth has not been
slandered day in and day out. Because the truth is when
a man of God speaks the God from the inner being all the
outer being starts feeling the pinch of it. That's why
you cannot understand the teaching, you cannot
understand the teacher because the teacher has to be in
you then the teachings will come automatically.

In many of his teachings Yogi Bhajan reminds us of our
capacity to be teachers not only of others but, most
importantly, of ourselves.
