Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Peace

Mankind is still seeking to find the peace within so it can have peace without. There shall not be peace in the world if there is no peace in the heart of the man. There is not going to be peace in your heart if you do not understand and experience your very relationship with your soul.

I have nothing else to say except happiness is a birthright and tranquility, peace, and grace are the environments of it. It comes when your soul is your beloved and your mind is your servant.

The Age of Aquarius will be the Age of humans and peace, love, and service. We shall all live as one family and wars will cease. Humans and humanity will prevail again. As the Berlin Wall fell, other walls will fall. We will all be united under one God, one spirit, one self.

I ask every man who would seek peace to realize that peace doesn't come by protests and rallies. Peace comes by peaceful actions, and so long as those born of the mother will not learn to respect the woman, there shall not be any peace on this planet. The day the woman will not be exploited on this planet, there shall be peace on this Earth.

We talk about peace, tranquility, and good luck. But so long as those born of woman do not respect woman, there cannot be peace of mind, national peace, or peace in the Universe. So long as man does not have reverence for the primal force, his mental attribute will still want to exploit woman, reduce her, abuse her, and be angry with her. Every male achievement will be empty.

Most beloved of God are those who are peace, at peace, share peace and bring peace to all.

The opposite of war is human longing, human love for peace. People do not understand what peace is. You cannot even think or talk about peace if you do not have your own peace of mind.

A very courageous man, a very strong man, a very real man can talk about peace. Peace doesn’t mean to just talk about peace, peace means we have to put all the pieces together and get to one picture. It’s a song of victory, it’s a song of God, it’s a song of reality. And as I have said, until this Earth stops revolving, if those born of a woman don’t know how to respect woman, there shall be no peace. Just imagine that Mother Earth is a woman. What have we done to it? We ourselves do not know.

In certain countries peace is a political thing. You belong to the left wing—you call for peace; you belong to the right wing—you look down at it. Now the question for every intelligent human being under this sun on the Earth is that if we want to survive, we have to learn to love peace. The tragedy is we have not yet learned to love each other. It's very difficult. We are afraid of each other.

Prayer is the power. Even God, Goddesses, God’s incarnations, and multitudes of humans have done prayer and meditation on the One Almighty God, leaving a legacy of prayer for mankind to follow. Now, when war is an impossible solution to conflict, let us work for peace and start by praying for peace of mind. Peace to you, to your family, to your environment, and may peace bring you prosperity.

Mother Earth is crying in vain. Almighty God, who out of His many bountiful blessings, gave us the planet Earth which we have raped, abused, misused—and we are not stopping. We are not at peace with Mother Earth, we are not at peace with environments, we are not at peace with ourselves, we are not at peace within ourselves. The time has come when we must all wake up to a simple reality: without peace what else are we?

Inhale deeply with reverence, love, compassion, and kindness. Communicate with your breath that it must give you peace of mind, peace on the mother planet Earth, peace and oneness with God and His creation.

What is the best way you can win the world? Have you seen those books—“Act like this and win friends”? What is that one principle that allows you to win the Universe, the Creator, the creation, the contact, the consent, and everything? What is that practice? Stand before a mirror and smile. Keep on smiling. Even if you want to be dead, even if somebody is mad at you, just keep on smiling. See how fast he attacks you. You think a smile is not a power? It's the most powerful tool a human has.
Success and the Spirit, p. 48

When you start being one with everybody, actually you are with God. Because if you cannot see God in all, you cannot see God at all.

My request to you is, do not let your calmness go. Do not let your peace of mind go. Be with the Guru through this time. Your spirit shall be content. The majority of the world is living in a terrible fear. Nobody knows what is happening. There's too much information available to process. Just feel, within yourself, content and satisfied, peaceful and unique.

Peace Prayer Day is one day we want to do the prayer to Almighty God opposite to Los Alamos where we made the first destructive bomb, the atom bomb. Opposite to that is a land which is called Guru Ram Das Puri. We celebrate Peace Prayer Day every year. So if you come and join us on Peace Prayer Day, that's all we need at this time for the planet Earth. Mother Earth is pretty sick because she has given birth to five billion neurotic children. So prayer is the power. Let us join in that prayer and celebrate our future.

Whenever a person is very aggressive, or coming very aggressively toward you, make this gesture: active Gyan Mudra [index fingers bent under thumbs so the fingernail presses against the back of the thumb]with the palm outward, facing the person, with the three fingers up. It doesn’t matter how aggressive a person is, he will stand still for four minutes. It is normally called Gyan Mudra, but when it is like this, with the fingers up, it becomes Shakti Mudra. Whenever a person is aggressively advancing toward you, make this posture and look straight. There shall not be energy in another person to act upon you, not at all. It is an Oriental gesture of challenge.

The power of prayer can bring peace to the Earth and peace to the heart.
