tinnitus - curse or blessing?

Sat Nam, Jai Satya Kaur --

I'd like to share two insights with you, for me two of the most

precious that I received from our teacher, Yogiji.


1) " Nothing is Good or Bad, but thinking makes it so. " (Yogi Bhajan,

circa 1969) (tinnitus can be experienced as a curse or a blessing. I

can tell you how I discovered, as a yogi, that it can be experienced

as a blessing).


2) " If you go outside some clear, dark, starry night, lie down on the

ground and meditatively tune into a star [any star you can see

clearly] and listen within -- the sound you will hear will be the

sound current of the stars. " (Yogi Bhajan, June 1975, Los Angeles

class) Shortly after that we all travelled to Summer Solstice in

Pecos, New Mexico. I practiced what he proposed. Late one night,

after the solstice music program ended and all was quiet, I found an

open grassy place, layed myself down on a blanket, tuned into such a

star, and heard a distinct high pitched sound in my head, and

listened to that star's sound, and felt communicated with, until I

fell asleep.


Now consider this passage from the Ray Man Shabd of Guru Gobind Singh

(translation courtesy Snatam Kaur, CD " Grace " ).


" The Universe plays its divine music

The sound of reality is shrill

but this is where God is.


When you listen to the reality

from this place of awareness

the sweet essence of raag arises.


Waves of melodies, emotions

and passions arise and flow

through you


Bind yourself with the Song of God


The Universe spins like a potter's wheel

and from it fly demons and angels


The sage listens to this

and instead of getting caught in either one

the sage drinks the nectar

of the heavens

and is carried to the heavens

in a divine chariot.

Instruct and clothe yourself with self control

Meditate unto infinity

until you are meditating without meditating

In this way your body shall remain

forever golden

and death shall never approach you. "



What I can say from 32 years of experiencing this meditation, since

that night in New Mexico when I noticed and discovered that I

experience " tinnitus, " that this sound current we hear need not be

suffering. It can be experienced as a rope ladder, leading to a

meditative stairway that links us to the Anhad Shabd, and since

within Sikh Dharma there is no middleman between the human and the

infinite, and since in Sikh Dharma we don't have initiations or

deekshas (hands on Sat Guru transmissions) because the Sikh and the

Yogi are self-initiating before Wahe Guru, there is no master on

Earth who could be qualified to say that I do not experience the

Anhad Shabd directly. and found it first through " tinnitus. " So-

called " Tinnitus " is one of my best and closest friends.


If your student needs help for tinnitus, there may be medical, or

hypnosis approaches for removing it, but I would recommend mastering

it as Guru Gobind Singh taught us in this Shabd that Snatam Kaur

sings as a masterpiece.
