Happiness is Your Birthright

Happiness is Your Birthright

Happiness is your birthright. It cannot be taken away from you. But you act as if it is not your birthright. You begin to wish for happiness rather than accept it and express it. When you wish for happiness, you also wish indirectly for unhappiness, just as night and day follow each other. When you wish, every happiness is followed by sadness and every sadness by a happiness. You are not happy because you make comparisons and compete with something over which you have no control. You have no control over infinity

Answering the Call

Answering the Call

Nanak says such a one and all the ones “who have meditated upon the Naam, and departed after having toiled by the sweat of their brows, O Nanak, their faces are radiant in the Court of the Lord, and many are liberated along with them!”  I say, “Sat Purkha Singh, it was an honor and privilege to be your sister in this lifetime and may we all live in the example that you leave us.”

Soul Talk Meditation

Soul Talk Meditation

This meditation brings deep relaxation, strength and mental clarity. It brings the experience of the soul on the spot; it is soul talk. It enables one to give and keep on giving to a friend. It can change your entire destiny if you do it honestly. If you do this meditation for 31 minutes per day for 6 months you will experience the cosmos before your eyes. If you chant it 2 1/2 hours straight you can command the 5 tattvas.  – Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan

Who Wants to be Holy?

Who Wants to be Holy?

Thirty-four years ago, when I first heard Yogi Bhajan speak of his vision of creating the 3HO Foundation, a “Healthy, Happy, Holy” Organization, I didn’t like the word “holy.” It sounded too churchy to me. Holy? I thought: sanctimonious, holier than thou, bor—ing!  Of course, that’s not what he meant at all.

Fortunately, I kept listening. He explained, “If you’re holy, you don’t do to anyone what you don’t want them to do to you.” So far, so good—the Golden Rule. Then he added that to be holy also means that you receive each inhalation gratefully, aware that it is God’s gift to you. Wow. Having that consciousness is a big order. It would require amazing focus to actually be aware of each incoming breath, but what a profound impact the acceptance of such a concept would have on our lives. Such a belief might cause us to be a lot more careful how we use each breath. We might change how we talk to one another. We might choose our words more thoughtfully. We might decide our actions with the thought in mind that God is living and breathing in us 24/7.

Pioneers of Sikh Dharma/ 3HO

Pioneers of Sikh Dharma/ 3HO

The reason KWTC changed my life was that it was when I became immersed in the teachings, having the Siri Singh Sahib with us every day. I was always working; I’d be drenched with sweat; I’d get into an ice-cold shower; rush to get into my nicely-ironed kurta and arrive just in time for class.

I was like a young tree, sucking up all the nectar, and it made me who I am. Of course, not everyone had my experience, but to me, it was the most precious gift on the planet.

I Found Grace Within at Women’s Camp

I Found Grace Within at Women’s Camp

During these summers we got to disconnect from life as we knew it and immerse ourselves in the company of just women with Yogi Bhajan as our only male polarity, and it was transformational. I learned that prayer was my every projection, my thoughts, words, actions.  At first it was a bit overwhelming to be told again and again that we as women were the nucleus of it all.  That women hold the power to bring peace, save generations from falling, and keep families together.

Waiting for You

Waiting for You

It’s a long way to go

Time is moving very slow

Stars are shining very strong

Guiding my way so nothing goes wrong

You are still far away

Like the Milky Way

I see you in me

You want to be

Light in you and light in me

Make me you and you as me

GOD’S RADIANCE (Brahm Prakaash)

GOD’S RADIANCE (Brahm Prakaash)

After circling the Parkarma,
Bow your forehead with love,
At the Door of Harimandir.
The Karmas of 8.4 million lives fall away,
And the accounts are all erased.
Wisdom, meditation and God’s Radiance
Are deeply embedded within you.

THE DOGS OF THE STATUS-SEEKERS (Kursee de Kule)

THE DOGS OF THE STATUS-SEEKERS (Kursee de Kule)

I am the Dog of the Guru,
While they are the dogs of the status-seekers.

I bark vigilantly all night and day,
While they lie sleeping, lazily.

They sniff from door to door, begging for votes,
Telling everyone what great spiritual leaders they are.

By praising their own empty words, they mock the Body
of the Panth,
For they have never done even the tiniest honest job
for the Panth.

Baba Siri Chand & the Yogic Culture

Baba Siri Chand & the Yogic Culture

“Guru Nanak’s own sons, Baba Siri Chand and Baba Lakshmi Chand, were perfect. Don’t think that there was anything less in them. But Guru Nanak wanted to give the grace to the householder. One gadee or throne of spirituality was given to Baba Siri Chand for the Udhaasee mat (school of thought), the unattached sect of that time. Therefore the other throne was to be given to a disciple, and that was Lehna who became Guru Angad.”

Where is the Dome? (Part 2)

Where is the Dome? (Part 2)

The Siri Singh Sahib was serious. He said what he meant and meant what he said. The Gurdwara needed a dome.  He called a meeting of the key builders and explained a dome would signify that our temple was not just a holy place, it was the Court of the Guru. The Dome must be covered in gold, not just painted, or looking like gold, it must be covered in real gold.

Yogi Bhajan Quotes:  Create the Life You Want (Part 2)

Yogi Bhajan Quotes: Create the Life You Want (Part 2)

You can always make and mar the day, you can always make and mar the hour, you can always make and mar the relationship. It all depends upon the intention of what you want in your life for yourself, that is the base. All advice, all help, all input, all profits, and all losses are just circumstances of time and space. The base is always you. Always you shall be the base, and always you were, you are, and you shall be.

Yogi Bhajan Quotes: Create the Life You Want (Part 1)

The Cosmos works for those who have discipline, who have longing, who have some goal to reach in their lives, and who make a constant effort to reach it. That is dharma. Dharma is in every day, in every action, on every side of the day. Don’t waste yourself into the maya of this Earth.

The Beginning (Part 2)

The Beginning (Part 2)

Most of the folks enjoyed acid rock music, but we preferred the music of the Mantovani Strings with full orchestra. Most of our 33-1/3 stereo recordings were of this easy-listening genre. Yogiji indicated that he really enjoyed this type of music, so we placed a sign on the stereo indicating, “This stereo is to be operated by the Birds only,” which ensured that Yogiji’s favored music would be played. Yogiji indicated several times that he really appreciated the gesture

Ishnaan:  The Science of Hydrotherapy

Ishnaan: The Science of Hydrotherapy

This science of hydrotherapy is very precise and sophisticated, and very simple. If you take a cold shower and let it fall just below the lower lip for ten or fifteen minutes, you will be bright and your mind will be very clear. If you put the water between the eyebrows and the upper lip, you will be very energetic. And if you put the water on the forehead, you will be so sleepy that you can’t match it. If you massage the upper arm under a very cold shower from your elbow to just below your shoulder on your upper arm, you are totally curing your stomach. From your elbow to about two inches above your wrist corresponds to your digestive tract. Two inches above the wrist to the start of the wrist corresponds to your heart. The wrist corresponds to your liver and the finger tips correspond to your brain.

My Song

Let us be holy, happy and bright
Beautiful days and cozy nights.
Joyful living and loving care,
You and me and us we share.
Smiles and our songs they’ll live forever
We’ll leave these memories for our children’s ecstasy.
That is our legacy, a guide to destiny, our destiny.

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Teaching #1

Yogi Bhajan Quotes on Teaching #1

A Teacher doesn’t hear—he’s deaf. He doesn’t speak—he’s dumb. He doesn’t see—he’s blind. He just carries the teachings. He never amends them, never adds to them, never subtracts from them. You don’t interpret it; you just respectfully carry it to another, and that to another, and that to another. When you do this, all knowledge will come to you. Everything will dawn on you. Your Teacher will speak in you. Your Teacher will guide in you.
