Yogi Bhajan Quotes for Women


Yogi Bhajan spent much of his time dedicated to teaching women. Here is a selection of this beautiful wisdom:

****

“You do not understand your features. Your features are not your beautiful nose, your beautiful cheeks, beautiful lips, and so on. These are not your features. Your features are your beautiful behavior, your beautiful character, your beautiful health, your beautiful spirit, your beautiful advice, your beautiful wisdom, your beautiful inspiration."

“You have to do first things first. If you do not accept your own dignity as a woman, all external trappings shall mean nothing. It has nothing at all to do with any man or with any relationship. Once you accept your own dignity, the whole world will come to you.” 

"The scriptures say that when a woman tries to understand and remember her grace, the Grace of God protects her. Now for that, you do not have to chant any mantra. The highest meditative power of a woman is to remember that she has the Grace of God around her." 

“The noble woman is the goddess which Almighty God worships. It is the altar to which God bows. It is the grace which produces God's soul. It is the ultimate infinity of all virtues. It is the power of all kindness and blessing of God, and the noble woman is the essence of all prayers.” 

“What I am seeking from you is a very simple reflection of you. Be innocent, be radiant, and keep your mind unpolluted. Stop scheming and start living.” 

“Your beauty, your duty, your makeup, your knowledge, your degrees, your education, and whatever else you may want to use to your advantage are based on only one thing: From beginning to end, you act as a woman in absolute grace.”

“Oh Lord of Lords of the time, if you have created this world, create those environments where everybody’s mother, sister, and every woman on this planet can live with grace and there shall be no circumstances in which she has to sell her beauty, sell her body, sell her being, or sell her consciousness to exist on this planet.”

“I ask every man who would seek peace to realize that peace doesn’t come by protests and rallies. Peace comes by peaceful actions, and so long as those born of the mother will not learn to respect the woman, there shall not be any peace on this planet. The day the woman will not be exploited on this planet, there shall be peace on this Earth.” 

"I can promise you that if you ever want to see and feel the majesty of God, you can only see and feel it through a very beautiful, loving, legendary woman. A woman is a legend who will live forever and around her the entire universe and creativity of God will revolve. A woman is an unstopping coincidence of the psyche which God wanted to experience Himself. Without the grace and respect of a Woman, there will never be peace on earth."

“You have not learned to live by the decoration, beauty and make-up of grace. You have learned to look beautiful by your make-up. And you cannot improve on the work of God. Your make-up does not make any sense. That's why, spending all the money on make-up, still you are miserable. Nobody can improve on what He made, the great Creator, the artist, whose creation you are.”

"Woman is the most powerful channel of God. You do not have an experience of what a woman is. Woman are the entire creativity. Woman is the bounty, the beauty and the blissfulness, God's grace."

“May the light within you guide your way on. Because when you look to the outside for light, there is a possibility that you may be blinded and exploited. But one thing shall never betray a woman: her own light and her own radiance as a woman. If the light within you can guide you, you will definitely excel. The time has come when this exploitation must stop. The time has come when a daughter should be treated as a daughter, a mother should be treated as a mother, a wife should be treated as a wife, and over and above all, woman should be treated as a woman.”

“When are you going to decide, ‘This is the end of my exploitation—I am going to live today as a woman.’ When are you going to learn to stop being anything other than a woman?”

“Never be ungrateful in a relationship to any woman. For if you do not respect a symbol, then you do not respect your clarity of consciousness, and woman is a symbol of regeneration. We call it the symbol of Adi Shakti.”

“All man needs is a comprehensive understanding that he shall be comforted by the woman he’s in relationship with. Man seeks a woman with whom he can put his head on her pillow and speak to her in confidence, in trust. If man cannot trust you, then relationship with that man is a bust.”

“Your beauty, your duty, your makeup, your knowledge, your degrees, your education, and whatever else you may want to use to your advantage are based on only one thing: From beginning to end, you act as a woman in absolute grace.”

“Woman has to understand her role. Her role is not to worship God; her role is to be the very self of God. Her oneness can affect and open every heart." 

"A woman’s inborn capacity to excel is 16 times more than a man’s. If she just has self-esteem that she’s a woman, there’s no power on Earth that can make her do wrong. Woman is priceless."

“You don’t need make-up; you don’t need to make up for anything. You are known by your spirit. You shall project out by your radiance. You shall be loved and honored by your excellence.”

“A woman has to learn the fundamental truth that she is she and she has her own design, her own consent, her own self, her own life, her own projection, and her own beauty.”

“The greatest thing you can praise is yourself. As you stand before the mirror and look into it, you look to yourself as a woman. You look to yourself as a graceful woman. You look to yourself as a competent, intelligent woman. You can give thanks for it. It should be so automatic with you. It should be so real.”

“Not only are you powerful, you are prestigious. Not only are you prestigious, you are beautiful. Not only are you beautiful, you are consciousness. Not only are you consciousness, you are the spirit. Not only are you the spirit, you are the security of the future, the most bountiful beauty ever God created. Men call it ‘woman.’”

"Have you ever thought that a man of God or a saint is a channel of God? True? Things flow from him? And the whole Universe flows from you. Have you ever seen that there is nothing more Divine than you? You have become what a mirror tells you and you do not know where your soul is! You do not know where your grace is! You do not know where you are. You have to find it.

Look Beyond the Mirror

Don't lose your grace for temporary benefits. Think long-term. You can be, because you are the source of the beginning. You always shall be, because you created time. You are always affected because you are the master of the space. And you are always into that height of self because you are the lofty self. On this planet, you are the hub, you are the purity, you are the force, you are the mother, no other.

You must look beyond the mirror! You are the spirit, you are the soul, you are the self. You are the honor, you are the source of all sources. You are the redeemer of all redeemers. From you, this creation is born."

“Never trust that there is a limit to your compassion. Never trust that there is a limit to your kindness. Never trust that there is a limit to your capacity.”

“In a country where woman is insecure, she will give birth to insecure children, which will grow into insecure men and this will make the nation insecure. Security of the woman is the security of the nation.”

"If a woman sits with folded hands in her lap for a few minutes every day, and feels she is a container so vast that she contains the whole Universe, she will never feel weak or have any problems. There is nothing beyond woman except God."

“Adi Shakti is the Divine Mother, the primal, protective, and generating energy in the cosmos. Let us call on the Divine Mother, the Infinite, the powerful. Her jantra (symbolic form) is the two swords of God to protect you, the center of your world. These are the two-edged swords of the being, the negative and the positive. This is her being. This is her presence.” 

"Aad Shakti Namo Namo. That's what you are: the primal nucleus power with absolutely no deficiency; complete and perfect and positive; one who can create another human being out of her. She can bring God on Earth, she can bring a saint, and she can bring heavens, and she can build a house with a needle which man cannot build with millions of dollars and with all his vigilance. When you are corrupt, you are terribly corrupt. When you are not, you are the most powerful individual psyche on the planet."

"As long as humanity does not learn to respect the woman, there will be no peace on this Earth. There will be war always. In our society, woman is used as a tool of the advertising industry; her sexuality is exploited to sell…she is being exploited in millions of ways which she doesn’t even know about. The most graceful being on this planet is treated disgracefully as a playmate, as a sexual toy. So, a woman can walk one of two roads: the road of the chick or the road of the eagle… Your only saving factor is to put around yourself the strongest radiance as a woman. Let nothing exploit you.”

“May the light within you guide your way on. Because when you look to the outside for light, there is a possibility that you may be blinded and exploited. But one thing shall never betray a woman: her own light and her own radiance as a woman. If the light within you can guide you, you will definitely excel. The time has come when this exploitation must stop. The time has come when a daughter should be treated as a daughter, a mother should be treated as a mother, a wife should be treated as a wife, and over and above all, woman should be treated as a woman.”

“When are you going to decide, ‘This is the end of my exploitation—I am going to live today as a woman.’ When are you going to learn to stop being anything other than a woman?”

“By construction, the fulfillment of a woman is motherhood; and motherhood does not mean that she gets pregnant and delivers a baby. If you understand her total behavior, you will understand her motherhood. Her motherhood is service, her motherhood is sacrifice, her motherhood is relationship. When she knows motherhood, she is fulfilled.”

“Your inner concept and your outer projection have to be in absolute balance. From beginning to end, you must act as a woman in absolute grace.”

“Accept yourself early in the morning when you look in the mirror or when you open your eyes—just say, “By the Grace of God, I am a complete woman.” One affirmation only, and remember it throughout the day. Dress up for yourself, be for yourself, and carry yourself. You will never be handicapped.”

“You have not learned to live by the decoration, beauty and make-up of grace. You have learned to look beautiful by your make-up. And you cannot improve on the work of God. Your make-up does not make any sense. That's why, spending all the money on make-up, still you are miserable. Nobody can improve on what He made, the great Creator, the artist, whose creation you are.”

Woman: The Ashtapuja. A Poem by Yogi Bhajan

“My woman is beautiful. She has eight hands. She walks on a tiger—regal, beautiful woman. I see her and I love her. When I am with any woman, I like her to walk ahead of me. Because I learned from my woman, she walks ahead of me. In her royalty, in her dignity, in her imperial grace, she is the mightiest of the mighty. She is the majesty of the majesty. She is the divine of the divine. She is the only grace before which the Almighty God bows. To which we say, ‘Pritam Bhagauti simar kai Guru Nanak lain dhiae…’ She is Ashtapuja, the Goddess of the Universe, Conqueror of all, Most Powerful, Most Wonderful, Most Graceful, Most Infinite, She who rides on the Maneater, in Majesty and Dignity, in such a splendid identity, the whole world feels it as a fresh breath of life. Her very presence is the Totality of God’s Totality—She is Her Holiness.”

Woman the Beloved. A Poem by Yogi Bhajan

"The Beloved is One who has achieved the radiance of Light of the Infinite,

The Beloved is the essence of totality and creativity of all that which we call Godhood.

In essence, the Beloved reaches the excellence of Excellence as a female,

When she turns around and touches things, all becomes pure happiness of

When she calls, zillions of musicians with divine incarnated song sing the glory and create the sound which gladdens every area where it is heard.

It is the creativity of that consciousness which exists once in the experience of Godhood"
