Yogi Bhajan Lecture: The Master's Touch

Excerpts from a lecture given on 7/13/00

In this kriya, The Master's Touch Meditation, you have to tune your ears. Not the outer ear; it will not help you; it is the inner ear. It has two bones on the side and the hammer, and if the hammer and the bones have a proper hammering, then your brain can analyze and understand at the same time you are hearing.

The mudra allows the Infinite energy to come through. Chanting the mantra stimulates the upper palate with the tip of the tongue, tuning the thalamus and hypothalamus. Focusing on the tip of the nose causes the frontal lobe, which controls the personality, to become like lead. At one point the pain can become so unbearable, you cannot stand it. Then it 'breaks,' and you have found what you are looking for, and that is forever. Nobody can take it away. To grow roots, you must open yourself up.

As an apprentice to this process, you offer yourself in surrender to receive the Master's Touch. You stand on the root of the tree like a little bear, who reaches up to hold the trunk and climbs to the top-most branch to get to the beehive, unaware of bee stings, intent on getting the honey.

He drinks the honey, is satisfied, and descends to the ground, falling through the branches which break his fall. After stretching and nurturing himself, the little bear remembers the taste of honey and the sense of achievement. He goes up the tree again and again, reaching that achievement in ecstasy, and nothing else matters.

Life is a lie if you do not achieve your Self for yourself. That is your honey, your sweetness. You must achieve Infinity where your identity is such a non-identity that it merges in Everything. Once you are that, you bless everybody.You are honored and in bliss, limitless, with no confinement, no territory, no demands, no requests.

In this process, you provoke, offer, surrender, achieve, and descend. Provoke, because everything is provocation, either to control or to receive. Offer, because you must decide how to offer, or present yourself. Surrender, because when you surrender, your working self becomes zero, shuniya. Surrender is the highest power to gain all that you want to gain.

Achieve, because once you have a sense of achievement and say, 'My God!' if you convert that 'My God!' into 'My Soul!' you have already found God. You have a soul, so achieve it! When you find your soul or yourself you are complete. Descend, because like a forklift, you may descend, go into the dirt and move up. This descent is in the highest state of mind and spirit.

When the Age of Aquarius comes and people seek you out, you will have no time but to touch them and say, 'Bless you!' to bring the entire psyche and being of a person into balance. That touch will create a state of Aad Such, Jugaad Such, Hai Bhee Such, Naanak Hosee Bhee Such. Original Truth, Truth through time, Truth now, and forever Truth. These must prevail through one touch.

This mantra will give you the power of the Master's Touch. And when you perfect this mudra with the Jupiter fingers touching, chanting the mantra in one sitting for 2-1/2 hours, one tenth of your day, it will bring you this Touch. There is no power or magic on this planet that can stop it. It has a permutation, combination, projection and power which brings the entire Prakirti, the Existence, into the being of Purkha, the Divinity.

All will be grateful to you; you will find grace, respect, love, and satisfaction that you are serving the creation of God. Then you will see God in everybody, in yourself, and in every facet of life. It will come true: 'If you don't see God in all, you don't see God at all.' You will see God.
