During the first tour of India (1970-1971), we had come to the Golden Temple, and many of us were planning to take the Amrit.  I was serving as secretary for this tour and so the Siri Singh Sahib and I had spent the whole morning getting everyone ready.  We had instructed everyone to wash their hair, had distributed kacheras, kirpans, and everything they needed to take their Amrit vows.  Finally, we proceeded to walk to the Akal Takhat, where the Panj Piare awaited us.

As pride consumed my innocence and falsehood claimed me,
your everlasting strength and goodwill kept me from losing all,
from losing all.

And now all that I once valued does not matter because
as you have said, none of this shall remain,
for we belong to a True One, a True One.

And though there’s more to learn, and live in this life,
your selflessness to continue serving soothes my longing, soothes my longing.

And when the Truest sends the blessing that we may return,
I thank God truly for sharing this space with you, with kind you.

 “Are you ready to go?” he said looking at me sitting in the corner.  I had tacitly reserved that corner of the ashram, to quietly but determinedly learn the techniques of the Yoga of Awareness and listen to the practical wisdom, channeled through this incredible man. 

 “You must all stand on your own feet, not worship mine; you must all become teachers.” I knew I was included in that edict, but that question was so direct, so soon – I didn’t answer, and he said, “not yet?”

I have realized, as I have been sitting here typing multitudes of words, spoken by the Siri Singh Sahib, that truly the Generating, Organizing, and Destroying principle and essence of G-O-D-Is at work in these words and the manner of their timing and delivery.  The Organization, by year, by day, by moment, as to what needs to be said to whom, and when, and how, – scientifically, spiritually, emotionally, technically, physically, mentally, consciously, subconsciously, psychologically, psychically, and on and on through the spectrum of human and divine expression – is stupendous and self-evident to any who can see from what divine direction it is issuing forth.

The above story was told by the Siri Singh Sahib at Women’s Training Camp, in the summer of 1976.  It tells of the ideal student, who only through his total unquestioning surrender to his spiritual teacher, can reach God.  The relationship of student to teacher is a relationship of the heart.  It is a relationship of love and obedience, devotion, and trust.  The other two seekers in the story came to the master with intellect and questions.  They came with their heads on their shoulders, instead of their heads in their hands, offering their egos in exchange for the wisdom of the spiritual teacher.

There is one hero (Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji) who has proven time and again that he really is what he appears to be – “Through every test he has stood tall”.  Therefore, it is essential that the reality of him, of his life, his words and his actions, be recorded for posterity, that his story be told for the generations which are to follow and which deserve to know the truth about the man who shared with humanity the most priceless teachings of human existence.

The one thing about the Siri Singh Sahib which has had the greatest impact on me is the way in which he sets an example by living his life for others. There are many stories and incidents which come to mind, but through the past three years that I have known the Siri Singh Sahib, it is his example of selfless living, of dedicating his efforts to helping others without thought of personal gain, which has been the greatest inspiration to me.

With the obstacles surmounted, the fertile bed of our mind was now prepared.  The words of Siri Singh Sahib Ji began to flow forth.  The cleansing action of the White Tantric brought gracefulness to our existence.  The ever inspiring, uplifting energy of the company of the holy, gave us strength, and the magnificence of the Solstice site, painted by God’s hands, filled us with gratitude for His kindness.

Although he lectured to a whole group of different people, I felt the Siri Singh Sahib was talking directly to me.  It seemed he knew what was on my mind and therefore could end all my confusion, which was great, as I was for the first time intensely experiencing Sikh Dharma and the 3HO lifestyle.   

I went to the White Tantric course as a yoga student from Smith College. I returned as a newly inspired member of 3HO.  Wahe Guru! I was high in the bliss on the teachings the Siri Singh Sahib shared with us and the chanting of the Nam.

“Our urging to give the White Tantric course is because we want people to experience their polarities, so that they can resolve their duality and have happy lives.  What you have to study in this whole game is who you are and where you are.  That is the greatest spiritual lesson a person can learn; who he is and where he is.  If a man knows who he is, he must know where he is.  In other words, if you do not know what orbit you are in and what the longitude and latitude are, you do not know your destination.”  ~ Yogi Bhajan
