Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Woman

“May the light within you guide your way on. Because when you look to the outside for light, there is a possibility that you may be blinded and exploited. But one thing shall never betray a woman: her own light and her own radiance as a woman. If the light within you can guide you, you will definitely excel. The time has come when this exploitation must stop. The time has come when a daughter should be treated as a daughter, a mother should be treated as a mother, a wife should be treated as a wife, and over and above all, woman should be treated as a woman.”

“When are you going to decide, ‘This is the end of my exploitation—I am going to live today as a woman.’ When are you going to learn to stop being anything other than a woman?”

By construction, the fulfillment of a woman is motherhood; and motherhood does not mean that she gets pregnant and delivers a baby. If you understand her total behavior, you will understand her motherhood. Her motherhood is service, her motherhood is sacrifice, her motherhood is relationship. When she knows motherhood, she is fulfilled.

“Never be ungrateful in a relationship to any woman. For if you do not respect a symbol, then you do not respect your clarity of consciousness, and woman is a symbol of regeneration. We call it the symbol of Adi Shakti.”

You cannot love me if you will not love your first teacher, who is woman. You are born of a woman. If you do not learn to respect woman, the Supreme Consciousness will not talk to you. You will end up with broken homes and broken hearts.”

“Your inner concept and your outer projection have to be in absolute balance. From beginning to end, you must act as a woman in absolute grace.”

“All man needs is a comprehensive understanding that he shall be comforted by the woman he’s in relationship with. Man seeks a woman with whom he can put his head on her pillow and speak to her in confidence, in trust. If man cannot trust you, then relationship with that man is a bust.”

“Accept yourself early in the morning when you look in the mirror or when you open your eyes—just say, “By the Grace of God, I am a complete woman.” One affirmation only, and remember it throughout the day. Dress up for yourself, be for yourself, and carry yourself. You will never be handicapped.”

“Your beauty, your duty, your makeup, your knowledge, your degrees, your education, and whatever else you may want to use to your advantage are based on only one thing: From beginning to end, you act as a woman in absolute grace.”

Woman: The Ashtapuja

A Poem by Yogi Bhajan

“My woman is beautiful. She has eight hands. She walks on a tiger—regal, beautiful woman. I see her and I love her. When I am with any woman, I like her to walk ahead of me. Because I learned from my woman, she walks ahead of me. In her royalty, in her dignity, in her imperial grace, she is the mightiest of the mighty. She is the majesty of the majesty. She is the divine of the divine. She is the only grace before which the Almighty God bows. To which we say, ‘Pritam Bhagauti simar kai Guru Nanak lain dhiae…’ She is Ashtapuja, the Goddess of the Universe, Conqueror of all, Most Powerful, Most Wonderful, Most Graceful, Most Infinite, She who rides on the Maneater, in Majesty and Dignity, in such a splendid identity, the whole world feels it as a fresh breath of life. Her very presence is the Totality of God’s Totality—She is Her Holiness.”
