This article was originally published in a 1980 issue of Beads of Truth.

In February of 1977 the Siri Singh Sahib and about a dozen of his staff and aides sat down to review potential sites for a permanent location for the Summer Solstice Sadhana. An exhaustive search had been conducted of all available properties within a hundred mile radius of the Española Ashram and as each property was presented to him, he flatly turned it down.

After overcoming our initial surprise, everybody realized that this was the challenge the artists had been waiting for: a focus for our creative energy at the Solstice site. It was immediately apparent to us all that the Guru was the only artist great enough to do such an immense job in such a short time. It would have to be a group effort.

Yogi Bhajan identified the causes of drug dependence in America.  “America, he said “is a credit economy.  This creates pressure on the nerves and when one does not know how to relax, one turns to drugs, alcohol and smoking.”  He also knew that a major cause of drug abuse was the depression and insecurity due to the decay of the American Family and the erosion of the institution of marriage.  “We must build a drug free nation if we are to survive, and we must go into the root cause of drug use – a broken unhappy home.”

Religion comes from the word “religioso” which means to go back to our origin, our Source.  Religion brings us to the awareness of our Creator and gives us an experience of Him.  Sikh Dharma teaches that our origin is One Creator who has manifested the entire creation.  We call this Omnipotent, Omnipresent Spirit:  GOD – Generator, Organizer, Destroyer.  That Spirit lives in all creatures.

This Poem was written by Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan and appears in the book, “The Game of Love”.
One day when you will become soft like wax,
Then my thread of life will pass through you,
And out of the accident of the warmth of my heart
One end will get lit,
And you will burn ― slowly melting in the heat of the flame.
And when you will reach the end,
You will find God waiting for you,
To embrace you into His Infinity.
