I’m going to lead you in a hypnotic meditation as a gift. The idea is to give you a New Year, whether you like it or not!

What is going to happen is very simple and classical. We are finishing the first year in the Age of Aquarius. We’ll be entering the next year. There’s nothing to be afraid of. And there’s nothing to worry about. Simply, we’ll be miserable.

The psyche of the planet changes every two thousand years. All the stars come into alignment, and the angle of the sun’s rays changes by one degree. That’s all; it’s not a big deal, but what happens is that as we cross into the next two thousand years, we become very empty inside.

You will experience that emptiness as the years go by. There’s no psychological, social, economic, personal, religious, or spiritual reason for it. This has happened many, many times in the history of this planet. Every two thousand years the stars come into alignment and the orbit circulatory system of the magnetic field changes which affects the earth’s axle and magnetic field.

…You have not yet learned what spirituality is. Religion is not spirituality. Your knowledge is not spirituality. Your happiness is not spirituality. Your good luck and tragedies are not spirituality. Spirituality is facing yourself with a smile when life confronts you.

…Everyone, whether a king or queen, pauper or beggar, lover or deserter, attorney or accused, is going to be challenged in life. One thing you cannot escape is challenge. Whether you challenge the challenge or you give in to the challenge, that is what decides your spirituality. Is your spirit higher than the challenge so you can face it? It is simple. If your face and your grace does not give in to the challenge, you are spiritual. Otherwise you are not. Period.

Nothing else matters. Many people ask, “What will happen next year?” Next year Bill Clinton will go to Washington and he’ll preside as the President for four years. He’ll be presiding over a government which is in Chapter Eleven, undeclared. Do you think the interest rate is down as a favor to you? Not at all…When we enter 1993, it will look and sound better, but it will be a cold, cold economy to go into. That’s number one.

Number two: The psyche of the planet earth as a whole is changing. Countries will change. Tonight there’s no Czechoslovakia; there’s a Czech Republic and Slovakia. Russia is also different. We are the only fifty-state-piece that is still tied together; let us hope.

Today, we who have come here have to face not only the outside, but inside. In me there is one me, myself, which I have never taken care of. All I have done is take care of my outer emotions, my outer feelings. A common thing you hear is, “I like to do what I like to do.” You’re a damn idiot if you only do what you like to do. If you do what you like to do, it may ruin you. If you do what is likable to do, it will give you prosperity.

There’s no need to sell consciousness, or be mean, or wrong. The art of life is to be smart. Being commotional and just relating to your feelings, and what you like to do, gives you the idea you are free. That’s not true. You are never free. It can never be; it shall never be.


Take your right hand, put it straight. Put your left hand on your heart. Breathe as slowly as possible. This will be six to seven minutes meditation. Two things must not happen. Your hand must not come down, keep it straight. Keep a solid attitude. Keep your left hand on your heart center, and breathe consciously. Breathe in as long as you can, hold as long as you can, and breathe out slowly. Stick with it. And make an affirmation: Victory is my goal; victory is my strength, victory is my guide; victory is my teacher. Just learn one word: Victory. Repeat it as many times as you can afford. One word. Victory. It’s a very powerful word. It’s a net projection effort. Everything ends up in one word - victory. Start the year with the word victory. You’re already in it. Repeat it as many times as you can to engrave it in your every molecule. Victory!

Don’t do anything which doesn’t ‘win’ you. Come on, repeat it! Make it the mantra of the year. Take the longest, the strongest, and the most self-conscious breath. You live by the breath of life. Make it very conscious, very self-controlling, and be very victorious.

… Whether you love yourself or hate yourself, whether you have problems or not, whether you are rich or poor; no matter what has happened to you, just sit down in your own environment at home, and take seven seconds to breathe in, seven seconds to hold, and seven seconds to exhale. Breathe in and out through your nose only, for 31 minutes. It will give you victory.

Don’t put your hand down. If when you feel like putting it down, stretch it higher; that’s victory. Win over yourself. Start the year with absolute self-command, self-excellence and victory.

“I command my victory.” Up, up, up straight, not just any angle. All I said is, stretch it out straight. You won’t kill yourself. In another minute and a half you’re going to win. “Wow, I won my day!” I know it is a difficult exercise. I’m not kidding. But when have I done anything which is easy? So…

Come on, victory is my right. Victory! “V” for Victory, “V” for peace. “V.” Viva! Inhale deep, hold tight and stretch your body unto victory. Let it be engraved in every molecule, every atom, every part of the self. Breathe out. Relax…

… Just understand one word. Take it from me, I’m not giving you any Sanskrit word or any religious word or anything. I’m just telling you something which will help you survive through all odds. Whenever you face anything and you don’t have an answer, just call yourself inside and say, “Victory.” Lean on victory. Make it a guide word, make it a precious word. Make it your religion. I don’t know what you are, who you are, why you are. Don’t ask questions. Don’t do your analysis. Don’t try to solve problems. Just utter the word “Victory. ” With just the mental utterance of this word your whole life will change. This is my gift to you for coming tonight.

I’m a Mahan Tantric. I can ‘psychosomatic’ any sound; I can twist the arm of Nature. There are certain powers a man can achieve to perfection.

You should not be dependent upon me. I have many faces and many facets. I have given you a key word for 1993. Whenever you will utter the word ‘Victory’ mentally, not physically, I can reach anywhere I’m called upon. Even if I’m not physically present. Don’t believe me. Don’t trust me. I never have asked for it. I’m not asking you tonight.

Mentally utter the word victory; try it. You’ll find the strength of a hundred angels behind you. On the spot. It starts from tomorrow, at eight am. I need time to meditate. I’d like to reprogress the regression and progression of the world tonight. And tomorrow, at eight am LA standard time, on a longitude and latitude as it is, the magnetic field will be set. That’s my gift to you for coming tonight and being with me, passing the cross line of ’92 to ’93.

You have your own life. Live it. You don’t have to belong to 3HO or to Sikh Dharma or to Yogi Bhajan, but wherever you are, in whatever difficulty, neurosis, or psychosis; whenever you need help, breathe in and mentally utter the word victory. See what happens. Tomorrow, by eight am, Los Angeles time, the world will be psycho-magnetically set. Not only can you use it, your friends can use it. But don’t give it to your enemies, they can use it too! That is the Word. In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God. It’ll be set, psycho-somatic three point two frequency, which is almost one thousand elephant power. It comes to sixteen thousand horsepower, if you really want to know, in terms of physics. There’s one condition, don’t say it physically. Breathe in and say the word mentally. “Victory.” Take about 3 to 5 seconds to hold the breath in, that’s all you have to do. I’m telling you the physics of it. You’ll be shocked how strong you’ll feel.

Bless you. Be beautiful, be bountiful, be your own grace. God made every man, every woman, and every person, as one person. One God made everybody as one. Those who do not respect the oneness of God, the oneness of themselves, and the oneness of others, are very self-destructive and they shall never be happy. But those who shall seek the oneness of God, the oneness of themselves, and oneness of others, shall be happy, prosperous, and have a joyful life. That’s a promise.

So, it’s a very simple thing. Don’t interfere with another person’s psyche. Let it be. Live and let live. Never let yourself down. Never let your friends down. And never let your enemy down. Give him a good match. Enjoy.

We’ll go back, we’ll meditate. We’ll psycho-psychologically, sociologically, and mentally set the word. It’s called Psychosomatics. It’s a Science of Humanology, in which the sound of the word with the breath of life creates miracles. I made up my mind not to give you any word which is foreign to you. Victory is a simple English word.

So, from eight o’clock tomorrow morning, any time you want to test out, breathe in, and mentally utter the word victory exactly.

It’s not something we’re joking about. We’re dead serious about it. And if you want to help somebody, give them this word. Basically it’s a chance to grow. A chance to be strong. Fit people will survive. Weak people will have difficulties, especially mental difficulties. It’s a very simple system. There’s not one person on this earth who will not have a challenge. Challenge eventually comes. You need vitality for victory. If I start teaching you and going through the rhythms and all that, it will take a century. This is simple. You’ll get confidence on the spot. You’ll feel the kick. You’ll know something is with you better than you. So that will give you headway for victory, and you’ll be fine. Remember again, repeat after me: Breathe in, and mentally utter the word victory.

This word will be psycho-somatically set with three point two frequency. Normally human frequency is point three to point seven. That’s how dull you are. I’m not kidding. Actually, this is something you should all know. The most successful person is point nine. The most efficient, intelligent person is point nine. Normally, a normal person who is very simple and straight is no more than point seven. Someone you’re very proud of, who is very attractive, someone you feel like talking to, is point nine. Ideally, a human should be two point one to deal in life. About two is considered normal, that’s how under utilized we are in our capacity.

Your psycho-somatics decide it. Your psycho-somatics decide your biorhythm. Your biorhythm decides your mood. Your mood decides your virtue. Your virtue decides your affection. Your affection decides your attraction. Your attraction decides your decision. Your decision decides your life. So just breathe in – for one, two, or three seconds – repeat the word mentally, and after you say it, let the breath go.

You live by breath, you die by breath. And you can psycho-somatically augment your energy on the spot using the breath. And the key-word, the password, which they call a key-word, is “Victory.” You just have to breathe in and mentally say it.

Tomorrow at eight o’clock it’ll be set. And it’ll be the current psycho-somatic field of the latitude of the earth angling the axle of the planetary system at Mars retrograde. It is the best time to get it. Now the War Lord is sleeping, we can raise our army! That’s what it is. That’s why I chose the word victory. Everybody can say it…

Best of the New Year and life as may be. Let the wind be behind you, angels dance with you, and your consciousness guide you to Victory.
