"The real job, your real job, if you want to be a singer is to clean your inside. Clean your body, clean your mind, clean your heart. Clean, clean, clean. Fear is toxic. Anger is toxic. Bad behavior is toxic. Purify your thoughts and your body. You must meditate"..."and clean yourself. Then you will be able to sing.”
"The neutral mind records the Shabad, the Truth. When your mind is freaking out, the Shabad automatically comes. The Shabad has the power to control you and your mind, otherwise there is little chance. The Shabad brings inner balance." *
* Words of beloved Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa, Yogiji, aka, Yogi Bhajan.
Excerpts from 'Psyche of the Soul.'
Shabad Guru means words that cut ego and uplift one from darkness to light.
"The Lotus Feet of God is the Shabad of God. The sound itself will uplift you and take away the disease and sorrow from within. Meditate on the Lotus Feet of God in your heart. The sound of the spirit is the Shabad. Decorate yourself with it. It will always keep you flowing and growing." *
"The Shabd Guru is a special kind of technology with a unique contribution to develop potentials and handle the problems of the new age - the Aquarian Age. In the body it produces vitality; in the complex of the mind it awakens intelligence and develops wisdom and intuition; in the heart it establishes compassion; in each person's consciousness it builds the clarity to act with fearless integrity..."
