84 Aspects of Siri Singh Sahib Ji (1)

December 1, 1991 |

He activates the seed of the soul
So one can become what heavens endowed.
He pulls the weeds: those sidetracks that sprouted,
And brings each soul back to the path:
Self-fulfillment in honor and grace,
Godly thoughts and divine action.

The Master lifts the veil
And the real purpose of life is seen.

84 Aspects of Siri Singh Sahib Ji – Intro

September 1, 1991 |

I had the unique opportunity of serving as a bodyguard to a spiritual master, Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji, popu­larly known as Yogi Bhajan. In this job, I found myself witnessing a Master at work in every kind of environment. There were thousands of lectures and transcriptions of his teachings, but few publi­cations which actually demonstrated his endless compulsion to teach, correct, uplift and provoke all people he met towards higher consciousness.

This then, is a collection which describes his teaching – not “in class”, but in “the living room”: within his personal, social and political obliga­tions. This I hope shows a man who was at every breath, a constant diagonal energy; in essence: a brilliant spiritual teacher.

I offer these poems as a form of gratitude for my own awakening, which occurred through serv­ing and studying him.

Many early students had traveled on a powerful yatra to Harmandir Sahib in 1971 where Indian people for the first time saw white folks wearing bana, traditional Sikh clothing, and taking Sikh vows (commitment to a life of purity) .  Back home, Vegetarian Restaurants opened up in several cities, aptly called “Golden Temple Restaurant”.

The Right to Be Human

April 15, 1989 |

As was in the time of Guru Nanak, so it is today.  Individual and social pressure and oppression continue.  The technology of Guru Nanak lives.  When practiced, it creates the same self-empowerment which Guru Arjan Dev ji demonstrated.  We have only to look to the example of all the great Sikhs who have come before us to witness the practical power of Guru Nanak’s technology. Oppression can never touch the one who realizes his right to be human, who has the experience through his own identity as the One.

The Eight Facets of God

Chanting this mantra for at least 11-minutes can help eliminate blocks and errors of the past, as well as support letting go of fear, attachment and pain – with ultimate compassion and patience.  You are only free when you are above time and space. When you are afraid, ‘What will happen tomorrow?’, you are not living, you are just dragging. Spirit is above time and space.” -Yogi Bhajan
