Excerpts from the book I Am a Woman: Creative, Sacred & Invincible, published by KRI
You are spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars trying to know—there’s nothing to know. Everything can change if you just connect with God. Prayer is not when you fold your hands, close your eyes and commune with God. For a woman, prayer is to walk like a woman, talk like a woman, be like a woman. It’s prayer. Just be a woman—that’s what God made you, that’s what you pretend, that’s how you act, and that’s what you want. Thus Japji says,
Mann-ai kee gat kahee na jaa-ai. Je ko kahai pichai pachutaa-ai.
Those who accept the Will of God, their grace cannot be described. Anyone who tries will be sorry they tried.
—Guru Nanak, Siri Guru Granth Sahib, page 3, Japji
Do you understand what I’m saying? The second principle in life, a very vital principle is: Let everything go but not your grace. You say to me, “Sometimes I have to yell, scream, and do those kinds of things.” You think you have won the moment, and you may have won that moment but you have spoiled the destiny. It is not very graceful for a woman to yell, scream, and call names; it is not womanlike. A woman who cannot work through her presence has not yet become a woman.
– Siri Singh Sahib Yogi Bhajan – July 14, 1986
