Satsang of Guru Maharaj Ji, Pacific Guru Puja, Capitol Theatre, Sydney Australia. October 18, 1975.
Well, dear premies, I guess this is the first time that a Pacific Guru Puja has been held. One day Bob was asking me about Guru Pujas, you know, can we have post-Guru Pujas. And I said, well, Guru Puja is where all the devotees and Guru Maharaj Ji can be and they all come together. It's a Hindi world and it means Guru's Puja - Guru means Guru and Puja means worship. And really, it's so beautiful. This was part of the world that was left out from a festival, otherwise there has been one festival in South America, and of course in America, and in Europe, and then in India and this was sort of the continent, this was sort of the portion of the world that was left out. And now this has also been covered and it's so beautiful that all the premies can assemble for such a beautiful reason.
You see, sometimes it's very hard for us to understand. Tastes are different. You see, things do not always stay the same - they are always different. Even electricity that comes out an outlet, an open outlet, that is always on, it varies its current every second. It's like, everything in this world changes and we are all subject to something, except one thing, and that is this Knowledge. And even that factor, Knowledge itself, changes within inside of us, because it takes its shape. It really starts to take away our confusions, take away our ego, take away our concepts.
You see, concepts are the things that we build inside of our heads. It's like a game. Just sort of imagine yourself with all these rocks, and you have a ladder, and you start building this wall around you and you build it and since you have a ladder it's very easy for you to build it. You can build it really high and you put a rock on top of another, on top of another, on top of another - and you build a high wall all around you, then you climb up the stairs, this is just a wooden ladder, you get on top, you pick up the ladder and you say, "Well, I don't need this ladder any more," you chuck it out on the other side and you jump in the inside of this well that you built, that you dug.
And here you are, you're enjoying it for a little while You're in there, you take care of these little rocks which are your concepts that you built up. You put a finishing touch here and finishing touch there. Well, you say, "Oh, marvellous," you know, "Just marvellous, look at it, this is just beautiful." Then all of a sudden, you feel this stomach going grrrrr. And you want some food, and you look around yourself and you go, "Oh brother."
I mean this is an example, I gave it, and everybody laughed. It's okay with me. The only problem is: it happens with everyone of us. This is exactly what we do. Before we know, we wind ourselves into this contraption. You see, some of these spiders, they're big, they're huge and what they want to do to satisfy their hunger, they want to build a huge gigantic web, so that they will be able to catch as many flies, as many bugs, as many things as possible in this web. They go ahead and build it and sometimes they get trapped in their own web themselves and they can't get out. They build it so that it will be very good, very precise, very excellent. But it was excellent all right, they got caught in it themselves.
And that's the way man is. You know, I always say this, maybe not in all the programs but at least I say this to myself. There's one thing I can't understand; that today's man thinks to be very intelligent, very, very, intelligent. They think that they have got some technology going for themselves, they've got something going for themselves. And, well, it's true. They've got some things that are just incredible. They hop over to moon and things like that. But, so far as we are concerned, we are like a swinging pendulum. We do the very mistake of understanding the perfectness, of really realising what that source of Truth is. We make that mistake of forgetting, that how it really is every time. And we make that mistake again, and again, and again, and again.
I'll tell you, we've got all the scriptures that we believe in in front of us and then we do the same mistake again. And that's man. And you see, times and times Perfect Master comes and just imagine this world to a jungle and he comes and he tells people, "Don't do
No. 24, November, 1975
this, don't you know. Go and tell other people also, not to do this." And he sets an example every time he comes into this world but then again man, lo and behold, after everything he does, gets caught in his own contraption. And the thing he knows is that he is going to be caught up. So premies, this is why there is such a great importance, there is such a great role of Guru Maharaj Ji in this world. This is the reason why we need him. So that he can guide us properly in the direction that we need to be in. So that he can point us that correct road that we need to be on so that we will not build up a well around us and chuck the ladder on the other side. It's not bad to build that well, I mean, sometimes there are other people who come and volunteer for it. Sometimes our parents do it. They don't know themselves.
It's like God, you know, and it's like there's a little kid who doesn't know anything about God. Their parents tell them about God but if the kid turns around and asks, "What is God anyway, who is He?" they try to project an image to him. "Well He is this long bearded fellow who sits on a blue throne up in the sky," so on and so forth. And it's like, sometimes people help us to build up these images. I mean of course, the parents themselves have never realised, never seen, never touched never felt God before, the power before, the supreme authority that they talk about, before. And sometimes they help you to make those concepts. But what does Guru Maharaj Ji do? He comes around and says, "Okay, that's enough. That's just great, that's fine. You've got this, now look, don't chuck the ladder, keep the ladder."
The way is very subtle. The way is very indirect. I mean, how more subtle can you be? Instead of giving at that very point the instructions, trying to explain to the person, "Well, you know, this is all weird, this is all crazy and this is all absurd that you have built up all this wall around you," which is true, he doesn't do that. He just comes and says, "Don't chuck the ladder, cause if you do, finito, you've had it." And people listen to him and they find out that they can be in that wall of concepts, without being in it and being able to come out any time they want, and even get rid of it because once they go outside and they find out that this is just totally unnecessary.
The Golden Age
So that's why Guru Maharaj Ji comes into this world, just to tell us, "Don't chuck the ladder. Keep it, you'll need it." And I mean, Guru Maharaj Ji itself, in a way, is a hard word to pronounce because a lot of television people and a lot of radio people who pronounce and talk and talk all day long, they themselves have extreme difficulty in pronouncing that word. They say Guru Maharishi or something like that. You know, Guru Mahaji. They have a hard time pronouncing it. But don't relate to that pronunciation. Relate to what is behind it and to understand and to realise more of that glory of Knowledge.
WITHIN OUR HEARTS
To understand more of the glory of the revealer of that Knowledge, we all assemble to worship him, to pray, to understand more because there is never enough of this stuff. There's never enough of satsang, there's never enough of that beautiful blissful experience that we all want to experience. So premies, it's like, it's so beautiful that this Pacific Guru Puja has been held here, you know, and it just shows us that we are just coming together more and more and more and more and more. I mean, look at South Africa. There's apartheid problem and everybody's aware of it. But between premies there's no apartheid problem because they have gone one step beyond where they can see Truth, the fact, the gist of life, where they have realised that life itself, where they have understood what ticks, what makes this body tick. That super power, that super energy, that super, super energy. We have different words to define it and I happen to know English, you happen to understand English and I used the words that I know. And it's like energy is the closest word that comes to it. But believe me, it's an undescribable thing. Because it's perfect, because perfectness, that very infinite thing cannot be put into words.
So premies, it's like it's so beautiful the closer and closer and closer we come, not physically, but within our hearts, within our love and we experience the true love and the more beautiful it gets. Because that program in Essen, I'll tell you, that was something else, because it was so beautiful. Like every time we have a program and we say, "That was the best" and there comes another program and we say, "Well, that one takes the cake" and another one comes, "That takes the prize." You know it just goes on and on and on because that love is totally infinite. It just grows and grows and grows and grows and grows and grows and we all experience it together and it becomes more beautiful and more beautiful.
I tell you, it's quite a project coming from America to Australia, it really is. It's quite a bit of flying time there and you're just sitting in an aeroplane and just flying out to the bottom of the world. You know, the premie who was driving the car, I said, "Well how does it feel to be at the bottom of the world?" He said, "Well we don't seem to have any problem." Well, we come here and we experience that joy, we experience that love, we experience something that we try to put in some kind of phrase we know. Of course we know it never works because what we experience, we know, and every individual premie experiences it. So it's like, what is there to say after an ultimate experience that we have all experienced, that is if you have received Knowledge and if you are meditating at it. And if you are not, that makes it quite different.
You see, that really creates problems, when you have Knowledge and you don't meditate, and you don't do service and you don't listen to satsang. Because they're there for a reason too, they're to help you you know, they are really there to help you. Because there are so
No. 24, November, 1975
many premies who really, really get helped, who really get elevated fast through satsang, service and meditation. And a lot of premies think, "Well if this Knowledge is the way it is, it's perfect, and I've realised it, then why do I need to do meditation?" Well this Knowledge is perfect but you aren't. That's the reason you need to do satsang, service and meditation. Because definitely this Knowledge is perfect, definitely this Knowledge is that very thing, but I'm afraid you're not that very thing. You are a human being just like me, in this body and we all need to do service, satsang and meditation.
Because it's like, well if I've got the car and it's got the engine in it, why do I need to fill it up with gas, and why do I need to put the oil in the engine, and why do I need to check the battery? Well don't. The engine will be still there and the car will be still there but it won't go anywhere. And what you call a car will exist, it'll be right there with a beautiful engine in it, a beautiful interior, your air conditioning system whatever you've got, but it won't do you any good, believe me. But when you put those things into it, then it's everything. I mean you know, some people drive Rolls Royces and some people do drive Honda Civics, you know, and there is quite a bit of difference but they both seem to roar on, they both seem to go on the road. And it's like, that is the thing that we have to realise, that there is something also that drives it, that sustains it, that helps it, because if you don't put water into your radiator, believe me, your car will go, it'll run, but for a very short distance, because the engine will get overheated which will create problems in the engine and all of a sudden you will hear these pistons go ka-boom and there'll be your car there but it'll have something missing and that's satsang, service and meditation.
They keep your car perfectly lubricated, they provide it with more than sufficient energy, they provide it perfect maintenance, and you're just great. I mean, that's all the car needs, and that's what you need: satsang, service and meditation. Because you see, you have to understand one thing. We are all living in this planet which is very finite. And we are approaching subject, we are approaching, we are trying to merge into something which is totally infinite. And there is a great barrier between the two of these things.
The Golden Age
Because in this life, in this very form, in this very time, we are trying to realise Knowledge, to merge, to be one with that perfectness, to be one with that pure vibration. This what we are trying to do. And our goal is totally infinite. You go and jump off a cliff and you eliminate the barrier, but that doesn't do you any good exactly, because that's not the way to go about it either. The way to go about it is to balance out between those two so you can be synched and still have the barrier. And that's the whole thing about it.
THE TRUE SATSANG
This is why Guru Maharaj Ji comes into this world, reveals us the Knowledge, goes around and gives satsang, is to tell premies, "Well, keep on doing service, keep on doing satsang, keep on doing meditation so that we can be perfectly synchronised and still have the barrier."And that's the beauty about it. Because that is possible, and satsang, service and meditation are three things that keep us in line, that keep us in synch, that keep us in balance but the thing which is our aim is behind the barrier. And then we slowly and slowly get synched with it, through meditation, through service, through satsang and we get more synched with it, and then we get more synched with it until we are one with it, and it's so beautiful because the barrier is still there, but then it sort of goes like on the side and we are one with that destiny, we are one with our goal, we are one with the thing we want to be one with.
So premies, it's like satsang is such a thing that the true satsang would be that if everybody assembled in the hall and the hall didn't have any seats in it, it had a thick mattress on the floor, and everybody came in and sat down and did meditation. That would be the very, very true satsang. Because what does satsang mean? The company of Truth. But then we need a little gist also sometimes, which we then call satsang, because at that time we are trying to be synchronised with the Truth. We are trying to be in company, we are trying to be in synch with the Truth. And we're told all these different things and Mahatma Ji gives you satsang, maybe somebody else gives you satsang, maybe Marolyn gives you satsang, maybe I give you satsang, and it's to synch you a little bit more, a little bit more, a little bit more a little bit more in the company of Truth. So premies, it's like in this material world, you know, here we are and here we are with our problems, stuck with the problems. And so we have our destination, or Knowledge, beautiful, beautiful Knowledge, and so it's like up to us to just crawl over there to reach it, grab it and that's it.
Because it's like, Premlata, watching Premlata grow, it's such a beautiful experience because first of all she was born, she was just very little, you know, she was small compared to what you see her now and slowly and slowly she grew, slowly and slowly shewas co-ordinating herself, she got a little more co-ordinated, a little more co-ordinated, a little more coordinated and it was just like it would develop, it would take weeks and months to develop that coordination but we would notice it one day because she would do something. And it's like now, she is a: point where she can barely crawl. She can take her legs and get in a crawling position but her hands are not in synch, so she just flops over. And then she ha-, to go round like that and get up again and go up. She just slowly and slowly and slowly getting there, and it's so beautiful because it's happening at its own pace and it's beautiful and the same way with Knowledge.
No.24, November, 1975
exactly the same way with Knowledge. We realise Knowledge when we do.
I mean sometimes you must sit down and think about the time when first it hit you. You know, I mean like, here comes a premie, hands you over a leaflet and you say, "Oh come on, not one of those." You read it and say, "Maybe. I haven't got anything on on Saturday night, maybe I'll go and listen to satsang." You go down and you say, "Well, that was pretty good. But maybe it's not all that true." Then you consult your friends and they say, "Oh forget it man, that's all the same." And then you listen to a little bit more because you're really curious, you want to know, there's something inside of you which is saying, "Go on man, go on, you can do it; this is what you want." And that drive makes you go again to satsang, you know, and see the same old Mahatma again, same old story but sounds like it's different, somehow, somewhere, it sounds different. And then again, and then again, and then again and then one day you say, "Oh forget it man, I just gotta receive that Knowledge, I just have to. I know what he's talking about." Then you go and you realise that Knowledge.
THAT CHAPTER NEVER ENDS
And it's such a procedure, because like, I have developed Super 8 film and you think that's a procedure, to develop a film, to take it out of one solution and wash it, and then put another solution in and wait for a little while, then put another solution in and then rinse that off and then put another one in. If you think that's a procedure, just wait a minute, look at the way you came to Knowledge. That's quite a procedure. So much reluctance from mind was put up and it's like, cross one shield, cross another shield, cross another shield, cross another shield, you kept on going, and kept on going and kept on going and it happened at its own pace. It just happened at its own pace. There was a click then and a click then that made it happen for you. But the click then and the click then happened at its own time, at its own pace and it's like automatic once you open yourself up to it because it just happens. And then one after another and one after another and one after another, things keep happening, things keep happening, things keep happening that drive you more and more and more closer to that understanding and then one day that other click happens and all of a sudden you find yourself in a Knowledge session.
And there is the same old Mahatma again, giving the same old story, trying to screen you out and well he does or he doesn't and lo and behold you receive Knowledge and then that's one part of the story of how you come to Knowledge. Then it's another segment of the story of how you received Knowledge and then there's the third part of the story and unfortunately this is an unfinished chapter, the third chapter is unfinished, nobody could complete it, because in the third segment it starts off with you doing meditation, the third part of the story starts off with you understanding more -and more of this Knowledge, slowly like a plant growing and growing and growing and growing and growing and realising more and understanding more and every day, every day you understand something which is more beautiful. And every time you do meditation it's a different experience, you know, and it's like, that chapter never ends.
And it goes two ways, you see, there are two books and in the other book the two chapters, the first two chapters are the same but in the second book in the third chapter it's a little bit different and in this one the person is very lazy. The first two segments are the same but in the third one he says, "Oh man, forget it. What's he talking about? This must be some old Indian story he's talking about." And he says, "Why do I have to do this meditation for?" And it's like the mind. And then unfortunately in the second book, third chapter has a very, very short beginning and a very short ending and it's called, "And The Mind Takes Over", full stop and the mind and him live unhappily ever after, and that's the end of that story. And like, you- know, that's the way it goes. And one, it's just infinite because it's beautiful and you know, everything happens in it. Because you know, like I was explaining at Essen, you see there is mind there and the mind is there for a specific reason and that's to confuse you. Well, it has to do its service, and it has to try as hard as possible and it has to just do it, and more and more and more and more it has to just try. And it's like, then comes the point of course where the mind goes, "Okay, you take it, you want me, you did it."
I mean after that it doesn't even speak and that's the third chapter of the first book, where then there's just no end because that experience is infinite and it just goes on and we experience it more and more and more and more and more. And see premies, mind is a very tricky thing. It's an extremely tricky thing and the way it can affect you is so …. I mean, you think that the diamond stylus for a record player is very fine, well you haven't seen nothing. Mind is the finest, the most precise, the most trickiest thing that there is. I mean, look at man. Why is he unsatisfied?
The Golden Age
He doesn't know the reason himself. He can barely see it, he can barely feel it, he can barely touch it. As a matter of fact some people can and still they are confused and they're confused out of their minds, their brains, they're confused out of their bodies virtually, and those are the people who just don't know what to do and they just go, "What's happening, what's happening?" You know?
THE TRICKY MIND
Let me tell you how tricky the mind is, and how it works after you receive Knowledge. You see after you receive Knowledge it's so beautiful because you keep in close contact and it's really beautiful you know, everything is like clicking and you are a new premie and every time other premies see you they say, "Jai satchitanand, jai satchitanand, jai satchitanand," and so it's like it's really happening and then you sort of fade out. You're there but that's it. And you see it's like you're doing meditation, you're really trying hard and you're really doing meditation and here is your mind really trying to say, "Well forget it, well forget it, well forget it", you know and you keep on doing meditation because there is all this activity happening around you and you are really trying to do meditation, you're really inspired to do meditation. Well, the mind says, "Well this is a regular battle, I've got to do something about this one" and it says, "Well, you've got to win him somehow because he does this meditation and he's doing service and he listens to satsang, and every time these three ammunitions, these three guns, these three bazookas attack me, I get virtually destroyed."
So he says, "Okay, I just have to do something, about it." And he says, "Okay I'm going to take a vacation, I'm going to think about it, " and so the mind goes away, it actually goes away, you don't have any more mind. And that's the period that all the premies experience after they just receive Knowledge. They feel very blissful, they feel very beautiful, they go and they write a letter and they say, "Oh Guru Maharaj Ji, thank you, it's so blissful, it's just so fantastic, I have such an experience." You know, they experience the mind for a little while and then it goes away and then they say, "Oh thank you Guru Maharaj Ji, my mind has gone away." And you know, whenever I see one of these letters I say, "Oh yeah?" and I just wait. So what it does it goes back and it plans a method, plans a way it can get you most efficiently. So it goes out and it plants a device. And he plants it and plants it and plants it and plants it and then one day, here it 'is and he comes to you and he goes, "Jai satchitanand premie." And you say, "Jai satchitanand", I mean that's the thing you have been doing. And I mean, it just sneaks straight into you, and you don't even know and it just goes, "Jai satchitanand", because the method it just devised was: "Well I can't win him head on, let me join him and destroy him inside so he just falls apart, and then I have him."
So then, all of a sudden, you feel this strong drive for everything. And I mean, I'm pretty sure that either some of you are going through that phase, or have already or will be going into it, becuase it happens to all the premies. It's quite normal. You know it's like, what they say when you hear that thunder in the aeroplane, it's quite normal, it's just the gears dropping down, and that's what happens with mind. It's quite normal if you're feeling all these things, it's okay, there's nothing to bother about. That's what it does. But, if you stop doing satsang, service and meditation then there's a lot to bother about. If you don't want to be bothered about it just keep on doing satsang, service and meditation and you'll be in just great shape So as I was saying, this is what mind does, it comes in and says, "Alrighty, jai satchitanand premie ji, how are you doing today. Isn't everything fantastic, isn't everything beautiful, let's go do some service", and you say, "Boy, isn't this beautiful, you're doing service, you're doing service, you're doing service." Then after a little while, you've done a lot of service and one day the mind turns around and says, "Well, jai satchitanand again, how are you today, how did it go?" And you say, "Wonderful." I mean this is what you are saying to yourself, it's your mind talking to you.
It says, "Well haven't you done enough service?" and "Haven't you done enough satsang and heard enough
No. 24, November, 1975
satsang?". And you say, "Yeah it was beautiful," and Mind says,"Yeah man, it was really, really beautiful. Why don't you take a vacation from it? Listen, I mean it's not going to hurt you to take a couple of days vacation out of satsang, service and meditation. You've done it enough so that you've got up enough momentum going there for yourself." And you say, "Right man, I've done enough satsang, service and meditation all this time and if I don't do it for two days it won't hurt me." So anyway, you say, "Okay." So you take a couple of days vacation. You do, and it's not a couple of days vacation. It's a vacation forever you take from that beautiful experience. And Mind just did its trick; that's what it does. It came in and joined the forces and made everything go bongo.
KEEP ON TRUCKING
And premies ask you how come you aren't doing satsang, service and meditation anymore and you say, "Well I've got enough momentum going man, I can feel everything," and what you're feeling is the same old mind. He's stronger, he's got a stronger grip on you, he's got a stronger hold on you and I'll tell you it takes a lot more after that to get rid of him than it took before. Because before it was just set in. Now it's bolted, welded and riveted on to you because it found its stronghold and it just grabbed on to you and you're stuck with it. So premies be very, very careful. If you have already have such an experience, you know what I'm talking about. If you don't, do satsang, service and meditation because that's what exactly will happen. And premies who haven't felt this, watch out. It's coming to you any day and there's no fixed date for it, no set time. And premies who are passed the stage and still are hanging on, well good for you, because it does you all the good. And it's like, we're here and we experience the bliss, we experience the love and we experience something we cannot even name and everything is beautiful and blissful after that, if we keep on going, if we keep on truckin. And that should be our main objective. Just keep on truckin, just keep on going.
I mean it's like, you know, sometimes people come into Knowledge sessions and they expect a ka-boom. It's not like that. You are entering an experience. You want to experience an experience, you want to be one with that experience because that's where you belong, you know. And it's like so funny sometimes when I'm talking and there are a lot of non-premies in the audience, there are premies and non-premies in the audience. There's such a contrast between premies and non-premies and the reason for that is because premies are understanding exactly what I'm saying, they understand word for word, word for word, word for word. Well non-premies are trying to figure out what I'm trying to say. And there is such a really, a really heavy contrast between these two. But it's like sometimes I feel, you know, that this world is so nuts, this world is so crazy because they think that they're doing me a favour by-coming over here and listening to me. Well forget it.
You know, it's just like when I came from American Samoa, I came over and I was really excited, you know, it was beautiful, coming over to Australia and I didn't really, you know, rest. I just fell asleep at night and woke up and had a big day and then just before coming over here I took a little nap. Well, I would have still been taking a nap, you know, and it's like I really feel that it's my duty, because I have experienced the Knowledge, to come and tell the people about it, that there is an experience like this which exists and you can have that experience. I don't' care, I mean if you don't want to, be my guest. If you want to, you're most welcome and again, be my guest. And it's like, it's not a supposition that's a concept, it's a fact, because when you get there, you realise that it is a fact that you're supposed to be there.
THERE IS A SONG
So premies, there is one more day of satsang and this is a festival and enjoy yourselves while you're at it and understand and experience, because there is something always there that we all want to be in tune with. You see, right now in this very hall, there is a song being played and that goes two ways of course. There is one that is playing within inside of us right now, and there is a song being played on the radio. If we don't have the radio, we can't hear that song. If we have the radio, we can hear that song. If we have the radio and if it was off, we couldn't hear the song. If it was on we could hear the song. If it was off, if it was out of frequency, we couldn't hear it and if it was in
continued on back page
frequency, we could hear it. So you see how many things it takes to actually be able to hear that song, to be able to actually materialise it. Have the radio, turn it on and force the power source in it. Turn it on and tune it to the right frequency and you have the song.
And the song is present right now in this hall, because if we did have radio, it would be playing a song and and it wouldn't have a tape in it, it would be playing a song. And it's like there is something that is an example. There's exactly the same way, there's something within inside of us that's like that experience. It's always there. We have to be on. We have to be at the right frequency and we have to have the power source. And bongo, we listen to the most beautiful music, most beautiful sound, and feel the most incredible experience of our life. So understand and try to realise what I am trying to say, because you see, it's like it's hard to come out to this part of the world. It's a long journey and not too many countries in between that can be covered and we're trying to make a schedule so that every year, all over the world can be covered, and we try and do that and it's very, very hard.
I mean that just occupies the whole year of just going round the world, you know, and it's pretty hard, it's pretty strenuous. But I tell you, it becomes so easy and becomes so beautiful when all the premies are there and you are in that frequency and you can hear the song. Because otherwise, you just sit there and you get so bored that you don't even know what to do. But when you have that and when you're tuned to that frequency, it's so blissful, it's so easy, it's so marvellous, it's so incredible and it's like, I wish I could give my experience to other people. I can't, and neither can you give your experience to me. Not that there is a barrier in between but there is a reason and the reason is that every individual person experiences that individual thing himself. It's individual experience, to be experienced by every individual. And we experience it, the more tuned we are to that frequency, the better, the better, the better, the better, the better, the better we hear it and the better we experience it. The more off tune we are, there is more distortion, there is more distortion, there is more distortion, there is more distortion and there is more distortion.
And so premies, it's just like realise, understand and enjoy yourself. And of course there is always going to be a crazy mind somewhere along the line, can't always expect it to be a lot smoother but we can have that experience, we can make that experience happen for ourselves. So understand and realise what this Knowledge is because we all assemble here so that we can have little more, so that we can get in tune with the frequency a little bit more and see that's why we all come together, we have satsang, we talk to each other, we talk about our experiences.
Here we are, it's for some thing that is so beautiful that it is just undescribable. So premies, thank you very much and welcome to Guru Puja - you welcome me and I'm welcoming you, to Pacific Guru Puja and I guess this is the first time Guru Puja has been held here and I hope that there is a lot more times like this so that we can all really progress and really enjoy and be in that harmony, be in that bliss and be in that tune that we all want to be in. Thank you very much.
