Kundalini Yoga Training
the Aquarian Age
© 2003 - Guru Rattana, Ph.D.
development of the human sensory system is one of the major themes
of Yogi Bhajan's recent lectures. Below I have compiled notes
from some of these lectures. I have also included one of the meditations
he taught in February and the transcript from his lecture on August
1, 2000. This material is an important point of reference for
the coming 11 years as we move from the Piscean to the Aquarian
Our personal relationship with our own energy is a vitally important
aspect of our sensory system. In fact, the cultivation of our
sensitivity to energy, in the many ways that this manifests, is
the basis of our path to conscious awareness. You will notice
this theme played out in many different ways in these lessons
and in the New Millennium
Being. As you identify the themes that resonate with you,
use them to establish an energetic relationship with yourself.
As you do so, you will actively embody the new energies and participate
in the shift to the Aquarian Age. These are revolutionary times.
It is my prayer that you enjoy the power, potential and the positive
heart-centered energy that are available to all of those who choose
to tune in and turn on with gratitude and grace.
Human Sensory System
human sensory system is going to be our greatest asset in the
Aquarian Age. We can cultivate our sensory system by consciously
connecting to our breath, strengthening our nervous system, activating
our glandular system, balancing our emotional energies and channeling
our mental energy to intuitive awareness. As we cultivate a subtle
sensitivity to our being, we will experience a sense of completeness
within ourselves that will give us great satisfaction. We will
sense our own divinity. We will sense, "This is me." We will have
the capacity to feel calm, contained, content and straight. We
will no longer feel the need to be validated from outside because
energetically we will validate ourselves by going deep inside
our own being.
Destiny and Attraction Mode
As we establish a sense of our own identity, our destiny
will be revealed to us. Everyone has a special destiny. What we
came here to do will become clear. It is our job to deliver it
in a meditative way. As we achieve a sense of completeness and
balance within ourselves, the energy that we once used to try
to compensate from our perceived limitations and to get validation
from outside will be available to attract what we need to make
our unique contribution to the world.
era of go-get-it is over. The age of attraction is fast approaching.
The attraction mode will happen through, and produce, a new relationship
with the Divine. God will no longer be perceived as a force outside
ourselves. As we experience our unity with universal energies,
we will understand that we are the co-creators and that we co-create
through our consciousness and our vibration. The Divine will no
longer be a worshiping God. The Divine will be a working God.
We will experience God as working for us. We will experience this
new relationship through our sensory system. Through our sensitivity,
we will connect with universal energies. We will experience that
God works though his creations (us!). We will learn to vibrate
what we need so that it can manifest. If we are calm, what we
need will come to us. If we have clear intentions, the God in
us will answer our prayers.
Shift is Happening Now
Bhajan has said that the sensory system of all human beings on
the planet is developing automatically between February and April
2001. By April 2001 our intuitive knowing will open up without
any effort, whether we want it to or not. The problem is that
many people are not culturally or emotionally prepared for this
shift in awareness. We will simply know if someone is manipulating
us. We will know when someone is lying and what they are thinking.
This shift in awareness will cause a great deal of insecurities
and mental and emotional disturbances. It will no longer be possible
to survive though manipulation and control. Imagine the impact
of intuitively knowing the truth on personal relationships and
on the economic and political system.
On an individual level, if people are not disciplined they will
be unable to handle the intense energy and its implications. In
the next eleven year, "We will find people getting empty, more
perturbed, not able to bear enough, not having much tolerance,
and very argumentative." (Yogi Bhajan) Instead of channeling the
energy to manifest, people will use the pressure as an excuse
to get drunk, to take drugs or to compensate through other outside
stimulation. Those who cannot hold the energy in their own bodies
will experience hopelessness and despair. Those who can incorporate
the higher frequencies will get high off of the energy and experience
bliss. They will know that this is one of the best times to be
alive. They will enjoy themselves in the moment and have a genuine
experience of love and joy. They will make the transition from
the Piscean Age of "I believe therefore I know" to the Aquarian
Age of "I experience, therefore I know."
How can we Develop our Sensory System?
Yogi Bhajan has offered us the following touchstones:
Be the prayer
Allow and commit to deep cleansing
Find your identity inside yourself
Be very honest, open and straight with yourself
Learn to contain your own energy
Cultivate inner contentment
If there is a choice, choose the positive
Identify your destiny and serve
Cultivate character, commitment, and grace
Balance yourself, so you don't need to be compensated from outside
Give up manipulation and control
When you want something, get clear, ask, be calm and let it
Develop a meditative mind to wait and see what comes to you
Develop a relationship with a working God that dwells and breathes
Taught by Yogi Bhajan February 20, 2001
in easy pose, Bring the chin toward the chest, holding neck lock
throughout the meditation.
Cross arms over the chest, left under right, hand under armpits,
"like you used to pout when you were a child."
Make an 0 with the mouth.
Inhale through the mouth.
Exhale through the nose.
Long, deep, complete breathing.
Continue for 11 or 31 minutes.
During the last two minutes, sing in a beautiful voice "RA MA
DA SA SA SAY SO HUNG."
To end, inhale deeply, suspend the breath (hold the breath while
relaxing the body), squeeze the entire body and stretch the spine.
Exhale. Repeat 2 more times.
Comments by Yogi Bhajan
"There are two ways to go: either you plan or God
plans for you. Either you do it or God does it for you."
"If you have no patience of your own Self, you have nothing.
Your trouble lies when you find your anchor outside of you."
"There are three things in life, which are very important
- your consciousness, your caliber and your character. Trouble
is like waves - they hit you. But there's nothing wrong. Trouble
comes to everyone. At that time, what should you do? You should
go within your Self. Because minus you out of you, you are ugly."
"Real freedom is, 'Nothing belongs to me. It all belongs
to you, Oh Lord.'"
(Obviously relate to this last statement as the Divine within.)

The Self-Sensory System and the Transition of the
Piscean Age to the Aquarian Age - Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D. August 1,
the next twelve to fourteen years you will be needed by the world.
It does not matter who one is today, or to whom one belongs; people's
minds are going to go empty. In the Piscean Age, which is going
to end, the main need was for knowledge, for creative legacy.
That's why in the Piscean Age sex was taboo; it was monitored,
matured, glorified. Sex and sensuality were considered the primary
attractions. Beauty was physical and people pursued each other.
Sexual intercourse was the orientation of relationship and it
reached the point of obnoxious duality; perversion became very
the time is changing, people are looking towards fulfillment of
the self through purity and piety, individuality, and reality.
They don't want to practice duality anymore; that's why you will
find few marriages. Sex will not be the attraction. A Sensory
System will develop, a new system where the individual will find
him or herself complete. Communication will be humongous. Everybody
will have access to all knowledge. With a push of the button you
can get any information you want. The whole world will be at your
disposal. The obsession with sex will have no place. One will
not look for satisfaction through physical intercourse. It will
be automatic that one will find satisfaction through the self-sensory
system, which people
will develop in the coming fifty years. The foundation is being
laid now because the cusp period is 1991 to 2012 for the Age of
Pisces to go, and the Age of Aquarius to come.
have already gone through nine years of these 21 years.
is that personal sensory system? There will be no need for cosmetic
make-up. People will be open, straight, simple, and their beauty
will be internal, not external. Man and woman are going to reach
out with such dignity, such devotion, such an elevated, loftiness
of self, and the beauty of the human character will be so bewitching
that not only the one who is willing will be enjoying and realizing,
but their realization will be so profound that no destructive
temptation by another person will work.
Piscean Age was the ugliest age. It was an era in which the female
was rooted out from her roots, and exploited to the brink and
to the brim by men. Male female relationship didn't have any strength.
It didn't have any character. It didn't have any taste. So females
in the past century gave birth to the most fearful, insecure,
impotent, or oversexed men, and sexual disorder was worse than
ever before in the past three thousand years.
mankind, sexually, men were inferior; they did not have the power
of endurance. And they could not carry the love and polarity of
the female. In other words, they could not become a unit. Their
sexual habits were so shallow that the Akashic record did not
even record them. Men were the product of being worthless and
useless; their sexual intimacy had no depth
men produced in the last century, whom you call "great,"
wanted to indulge in the power of destruction. That's why we created
the atom bomb, the hydrogen bomb, smart bombs, we had two wars,
and we killed more people in the name of religion than anything
And religion became, not reality, but an ugly fanaticism.
ugliest thing that happened in this last century is that man started
finding God outside himself. Man forgot that God is the working
God, Karta Purkh, which, Nanak said, works and breathes in us.
It's part of us; It's not separate. We were blind to God's presence
only way to survive today is through the insanity of the ego.
Not ego - ego has a rational reference - but the insanity of the
ego. And man's ego is like a snake which spews poison like a fountain
at you. It doesn't mean anything. It just scares you, that's all.
have become limited, small, squeezed to a point of just physical
existence, just physical existence. Today we are six billion ugly
ducklings of the human race living on the planet and we have no
quality, no quantity, no character, and no commitment. Look at
our character; it's wrapped in lies and inconsistency. We say
things which are not true. We truthfully say things which are
not true. We dramatically say things which are not true.
we do the ugliest thing in this planet, we build a power which
surrounds the individual; how many houses, how many boyfriends,
how much money we have. We end up adding on dirt - a termite heap
character we have become very shallow. How many TV sets we have,
how much bigger our TV set is, how many cars we have . . . You'll
never hear a person talking about how much satisfaction, how much
containment, how much contentment, how much character, how much
realization he has. You won't hear it these days.
had sex with who? Who wants who? Who chased who? Who is nude?
Who is more nude?" You understand? There's a competition
going on. You see all our magazines; it's a human joke. And when
a race of humans starts making mockery of themselves openly and
obnoxiously, nothing is sacred. So this is the state of affairs
and it has to go on for twelve more years of this cusp period.
And it will be bad to us.
idea to present this to you is that many of you will try to reach
out to help people or help yourself, and you will have something
to understand. It's called "Building the Foundation of the
New Age." The Age of Aquarius will be the Age of Experience
where only people of experience will be liked, respected, worshipped,
talked to and understood. It's not a matter of how old you are
or how young you are or how white you are or how black you are.
as it has been known has become absolutely obsolete. Because in
the past 5000 years religion has been teaching you to redeem your
soul. Soul is already redeemed. What you should redeem is your
being cheap, shallow, worthless, useless, not true to your words,
not true to your commitment, not true to your character. That's
what you should redeem.
majority of the world is nothing but show business. You put on
a show. And spirituality is nothing but a show. No human believes
that they are a fact of life, a fact of existence, that they are
real; that they are born in the image of God. The most magnificent
Allah, most infinite God Jehovah, most pure, wise Lord Buddha,
whatever you want to call your God, has created you in His own
image and this is it. So God in the New Age is called He-She-It;
He, She, and It. And if you don't understand the totality of God
as He, She, and It, then you are s###. You can put silver leaf
or gold leaf on it, that is still what you are. So you are wrapped
in gold, your wealth and you think you are covered; you are wrong.
You are wrapped in silver and you think you are shining and bright
and you can make a fool of others? You are deadly wrong
fact is there is nothing more beautiful, more worthy, or more
conscious than you.
time has come of self-value. And the question is not: "To
be or not to be;" the statement is: "To be, to be."
"I am, I Am." The time has come not to search for God,
but to be God. Time is not to worship God; but to trust and dwell
in the working God.
this is coming through me, it is cleansing me. If you are not
listening and only hearing, you are not getting it. But if you
are listening, it will go into you. You have to come to the awareness
of how bad and unfortunate we have made this world as ugly as
possible, and how beautiful actually God created it. We are purely
enemies of God, because God within us is in pain and there is
no God outside us. Each one is the manifestation of God so it
won't work to create God by making a stone God. Every grain of
sand is God. And we have to have our subtle body, our sophisticated
self to see it.
reality, you are a bunch of molecules living by the pranic body.
You are nothing more, nothing less. As long as the psyche will
not merge in you -- equally in balance, you will have no awareness.
Human existence is a combination of the pranic body and psyche
energy, which is the universe, Prakritee, the creation in proportion.
When you have that state of mind you are clean and clear. You
stop searching; you start practicing. The oddness in you becomes
even, and your flow becomes as vast as the universe - and sometimes
beyond the universe. You have the authentic reach to yourself.
don't want anybody because I want everybody. This concept is very
difficult. I don't want to be "I;" I don't want to be
"we." I want to be "just as it is." And my
run is with the flow of the psyche of the universe as it takes
me, as it moves me, as it desires me. Man will stop cutting corners
and come to a real existence. And it's not long from now.
person who thinks he is great may be nothing, because the Information
Age is so powerful, and so knowable, and so acknowledgeable, and
so understandable, that nothing can work. We will not be competent
to cheat each other, but we can help and deal with each other
as equal. There's no beautiful, no ugly. The love of existence
of our life and of our breathing will be in need of the flow of
the psyche in us, therefore, we can be a real combination of self
within the self. And the sensory system which will develop automatically
out of us will be our archangel protecting us and glorifying us.
who hustle and hassle and move and want, will just die suffering.
They'll not get anything. Now the time has come that you will
have a meditative mind to wait and see what comes to you. Your
mind will direct you to work towards the right channels. You will
meet the right people. Our future is now and our presence is our
purity. We don't have to purify ourselves; we are pure. We simply
have to not make it ugly by diversion, by concoctions, stories,
and by creating meaningless romance and fantasy, and imagining
things which are zero. We'll master ourselves through our service,
through our character, through our commitment, and the most
powerful thing which people have - our grace. Our individual grace
is the most wanted today. And our projection, which will give
us satisfaction, fulfillment, and exaltation, is our nobility.
We will act noble, gracious, kind, and compassionate. These are
our essential features.
creativity will be our sensory system. And through this sensory
system we will be overflowing with energy, touching the hearts
of people, and feeling their feeling, and filling their emptiness.
We will act great and our flow will fulfill the gratefulness in
the hearts of others. It will be a new relationship. We will create
a new humanity which will have the new sensory system and thus
we will establish the Age of Aquarius. This is the fundamental
character you have to learn by heart.
Meditation to Develop the Self-Sensory System
Point the Jupiter finger (forefinger) of the right hand straight
up toward the sky with the thumb and other fingers closed in a
fist with the right elbow bent and relaxed at the side. The left
hand is placed flat over the heart center (center of the chest).
