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.

It was September 13, 1968. Harbhajan Singh Yogi, now thirty-nine years of age, waited his turn in the line-up that had just disembarked at Toronto’s international airport. In the queue were tourists, professionals, government people and hopeful immigrants. Gradually, Harbhajan’s place in line moved up, as people were cleared at the front by the customs inspectors.

“These hypnotic affirmations stimulate the meridians of the upper palate through the permutation and combination of the sound. If the individual sings along while practicing or playing these recordings, they further stimulate the hypothalamus. The neurons in the brain are readjusted for the beautiful, bountiful, blissful success of the individual. It is a God-given gift for you and for your prosperity. The system works. It shall work for you.

“The affirmations are designed to burn negative karma and stimulate positive inspiration. Many people have tried it. It has worked miracles. Miracles are unexplainable wonderful happenings. They are not gimmicks or soul talk. They are a reality that can be proven by the practicing practitioner

“Sahej.  The easy acceptance of your own spiritual radiance.”- Siri Singh Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogi Ji

My own journey to Sahej began at the beginning of creation, where all journeys began. No, I’m not trying to be a wise guy. Every experience in every incarnation, in every moment we spent as stardust spiraling through the galaxies has brought us to this moment. If my experiences had been any different, the outcome would be different.

So the question is, did I ever have a choice in where I end up? All is God’s play. All is the Doer doing. The One is creating itself into all the parts of creation and enjoying interacting with itself. It creates itself continuously every instant. There is no actual Universe. It is the exchange of energy to create the illusion. It’s like your TV. There’s a nice picture, you can see the people and animals doing what they do. Then, if the power goes off, all the people, animals, buildings, trees, lands, etc. are gone in an instant. That is the relationship of the Ong and Kar. The creative energy is always keeping the illusion, but it could disappear at any moment.

To fully convey the impressions that are deepest within me of the early years in Europe, I wish I could show moving pictures and video glimpses of expressions and situations: like Tantric in Holland, the Siri Singh Sahib’s eyes as he counselled, welcoming smiles in Hamburg, a Golden Temple Restaurant kitchen scene.

And then I remember the sounds of the Siri Singh Sahib’s voice, the melody of voices translating into languages of the Mediterranean and the North, at the Yoga Festival, the clatter of pots, and the hum of restaurant machines in the Golden Temple Restaurants. The Golden Temple Restaurants were the hub of our 3HO life in Europe in the early days. They were at the heart of our growth as a group and in each of our psyches, our memories of working there live on and warm us even now.
