Chanting Akaal at the Time of Death

Chanting Akaal at the Time of Death

There is a beautiful tradition in the 3HO and Sikh Dharma communities that is done when someone dies. Whether it is a beloved friend or relative, or someone we never knew, this tradition assists the departing soul in its journey home, as well as giving comfort to those left behind.

At the time of death we chant Akaal three times. Akaal means ‘Undying’ and refers to the soul that is being released. This sound current helps to guide the soul to pass out of this worldly realm and into the Akaal Purakh, the Undying Being.

The First and Last Breath

The First and Last Breath

This last breath is also a last chance. As you die, you assess your actions and their karmas. According to the frequency of your last breath and your last thought, you can project beyond the reactions to your karmas or into and through them. You create an attitude and a projection in your aura at death that is effectively an identity card. Whatever is projected in that moment is read by the magnetic field and the Universe responds accordingly. Your projection pulls the Infinite into merger out of love and radiance. The Infinite and God are fundamentally neutral in nature just as life is fundamentally ruled by polarity. So in the act of dying, the projected frequency of your last breath establishes your relationship with the Infinite.

The Big Sleep

The Big Sleep

They say two things are inevitable, death and taxes. We are all born to die. That’s a fact. Well, that being the case, it seems advisable to get all your accounts in order, save all your receipts, and be ready for the examiner to see what karma you may still have left to pay. Yet, it is only the body that dies when the soul departs. The soul is already immortal, indestructible. Although there is still air left in the body, it is the “prana”—the divine life force that is withdrawn and, ideally, returns directly to God, without having to come back into another human form.

All things come from God, and all things, including us, shall return to God, the source of all life. The trick is to die consciously. And that’s what yogis have done while still in the body. They tell us that death is simply a return to Source. It is nothing to fear. Many of us work to achieve that state of yoga, or Divine Union, while still alive, so that when it is finally time to leave behind this rented vehicle, we shall have a swift and smooth, direct, non-stop journey home. Meanwhile we do trial runs, field trips called meditation.

Yogi Bhajan’s Contributions to a World of Peace

Yogi Bhajan’s Contributions to a World of Peace

In our heart of hearts we all long for peace—a deep longing for personal peace of mind and a collective longing for peace in our communities, in our nations, and in the world.

Yogi Bhajan understood this, and he also recognized that conflict is not just external but is often present in the deepest parts of our minds. He spent his life teaching how to meet the challenges of conflict and how stand for truth and develop lasting peace within our hearts and in our world.  Yogi Bhajan’s life was an action for peace.

In order to find peace, each person must find the truth. Kundalini Yoga and Sikh Dharma are living paths of truth, living technologies to make the shadow visible, to heal the inner anger and conquer fear, to bring the human to the heights of awareness, to experience and act from reality and truth. Peace is an experience of truth in action; personal, cultural, and universal truth is a living concept—Sat Nam—our very essence and identity is truth.

Teaching Children Values

Teaching Children Values

“One thing to remember is, all things come from God, and all things go to God. Everything comes from Him; and then goes back Home again.”
–Yogi Bhajan

This teaching can be seen as a foundation for all other teachings, and describes Yogi Bhajan’s teachings about children, those souls newly reincarnated into this dark age to bring light, truth and hope to the dawning Aquarian Age.

The first principle Yogi Bhajan shared with us is that no parent should feel that the child is “mine.” A child comes from God and in the end will return to God. We are custodians, serving their needs on physical, mental and spiritual levels to give them direction toward God.

This process of education starts long before birth, even before conception. While in the womb, the fetus is taught through the vibrations of the mother.

POWER (Shakti)

POWER (Shakti)

Meditate on God right Now!
And even if you’ve wasted your past in pursuit of Maya,
You can know the Future.

Settling the breath at the third eye point,
Energy flows through the Ida and Pingala,
The Shushmana is energized,
The Thousand Petalled Lotus turns,
And Nectar trickles from the Realm of Brahm.

Such a Gursikh is Liberated!

Yogi Bhajan Lecture:  Prepare Yourself to Serve the Age of Aquarius

Yogi Bhajan Lecture: Prepare Yourself to Serve the Age of Aquarius

Life is based on touch. We touch each other with our eyes. We touch each other with our ears. We touch each other with songs and words. We touch physically. We touch to kill. We touch to give birth. If you look at the whole spectrum of life, it’s nothing but touch. And if you want to know the Master’s touch, then you should live by these words of Nanak:

Aad sach, jugaad sach, hai bhee sach, Naanak hosee bhee sach.

The word in the beginning was true, word throughout time is true, word now is true, Nanak says this shall always be true.

Introduction to Tratakam & Guru Yoga

Introduction to Tratakam & Guru Yoga

In the yogic scripture it says, “Even a glance from the eyes of a holy man can cure mental and physical imbalances.” Gazing with the eyes is recognized as a powerful technique for focusing pranic energy. The pranic energy gives life to the atom, all material, and the mind. The laws of regulation and interaction of pranic energy form the basis of most occult sciences and explain many obscure passages in the scriptures. The general technique of gazing is called Tratakam. Applying Tratakam to a particular image of a teacher is called Guru Yoga.

History of the Tratakam Photo

History of the Tratakam Photo

According to Guru Singh (Los Angeles), who recounted this story to me in 2012, there was a need to have photos of Yogi Bhajan for brochures and posters, so in October 1969 Guru Singh and Shakti Parwha Kaur took him to a photo studio located on Melrose Ave. near Jules Buccieri’s antique store, where the first kundalini yoga classes were held. The photographer was well known for doing “head shots” for movie stars so he took numerous photos of Yogi Bhajan.

The Teacher Within: Tratakam Meditation

The Teacher Within: Tratakam Meditation

In the yogic scriptures it says, “Even a glance from the eyes of a holy man can cure mental and physical imbalances.” Once in a very great while there is a picture that has a transcendent quality of neutrality that allows the person gazing at it to go through it and into their higher consciousness. This is a form of meditation called Tratakum.

The Beginning (Part 3)

The Beginning (Part 3)

When Yogiji came to Orlando for another teaching tour-visit, we advised that it was time to pick up the children from Montessori pre-school. We all walked to the school where Yogiji picked up the kids and carried one under each arm, and began playing with them. He indicated to Hari Singh that he really missed his personal family in India. His own children were older, but at least he could be a part of the Bird family since he was seldom able to go back to India to visit them and his wife.

Yogi Bhajan Lecture: The Beauty of Kundalini Yoga

Yogi Bhajan Lecture: The Beauty of Kundalini Yoga

The beauty or Kundalini Yoga is that if you can just physically sit there, fix the automatic rhythm of your pranayam (breath control), and add a creative naad (inner sound), your mind becomes focused and balanced. In one kriya you can immediately achieve a complete physical, mental, and spiritual balance. It works so effectively and quickly because of this completeness, balance, and energy.

From Copper to Gold

From Copper to Gold

From time to time, the Siri Singh Sahib would have me cover seemingly ordinary gifts with gold. Whenever that happened, the gift became extraordinary in the eyes of everyone who saw it.  This was my intention with the Dome Lamp.  The handwork was expertly done and its construction of copper, in and of itself, made it pretty special. It was totally fitting for the lamp to be living where it was living, but when it was returned and re-suspended from the ceiling it was spectacular.  Now that it was totally gold, no one would dare consider touching it again.
