Sayings of
Yogi Bhajan



'When you start loving God, he starts putting money into your life or a lovely woman or a temptation like power or authority. He puts it before you to see if you will let it go, to see who you love most.' Yogi Bhajan

'The more spiritual you become the harder times you experience; the more spiritual you become, the more slandered you are.'

'Not having flexibility to change is a tragedy in itself, and having too much flexibility not to stand for anything is a tragedy in itself.'

'One who speaks the truth shall go, but the truth he speaks shall not go.'

'The mind is like a mirror through which you can see infinity. But if you put the blackness of hatred over it, you will see nothing.'


Learning, Knowledge & Wisdom

'One is wise and one is foolish. Everybody has some wisdom and some foolishness. It is a mixture. There is only a difference in percentage, not in totality.'

'Fools live in fear, a wise man lives in strength.'

'You are very powerful, providing you know how powerful you are.'

'If you want to learn a thing, read that. If you want to know a thing, write that; if you want to master a thing, teach that.'

'If you really want respect in this life, never advise anybody without being asked; and secondly, when somebody really asks you for advice, just wait until he is ready to listen; and when you find the person is really ready to listen, then always give him the polarity, the two sides of the subject as you know it.'



'When there is a time to stay, one should stay. When there is time to go, one should go. When there is a time to fight, one should fight. When there is a time to have, one should have but it should all be graceful.'

'There are three values; Feel good, be good, and do good.'



'Faith means one-pointedness of mind towards infinity. Duality means one-pointedness of mind toward two existences, Infinite and finite.'

'What is God union? It is the same union that we find in our polarity. In that ecstasy, in that enjoyment where there is a complete merger of two polarities, when the female offers herself and the male accepts, both unite in that ecstasy of infinity. In such a union soul is born out of the soul of a woman, which changes the face of the earth.'

'It is not only the child that is born which is creativity, it is the merger of the two polarities that is highly important.'

'Of God you are the polarity. God is infinite and you are finite.'
