Yogiji spoke at least a few times about his belief that the Americans (us, we, ME!) who found Sikh Dharma (through Kundalini Yoga) were very likely to be reincarnations of those frightened souls who ran from Guru Gobind Singh’s call for the “head of a brave young one” that first Vaisakhi Day. The song says “many did they run away and many did they hide … ” Those particular words always affected me with shivers down (or up) my spine when we sang them during gurdwara or any 3HO/Sikh Dharma function.

The Yogi focuses his attention in the Light
And tells the deepest secrets…

The ineffable description
Of remembrance of the Nam
Of Shakti and Bhakti,
And of Brahma’s Gyan.

The words flow through him naturally,
And bowing to Guru Ram Das,
The Mender of Broken Destinies,

Centered deeply in Prayer…

He speaks,
So that, by Guru’s Grace,
Everyone may hear.

“It will bring peace to those on whose forehead it is not written.  It will bring prosperity to those who do not know how to spell it.  It will bring you good luck when you have done nothing good even in your dreams.  Because this is the lotus, this is the opening of the lotus and turning the mother divine power back to  the navel point.  It is a path.  I gave you this gift, so that you can give it to your children, grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren and especially to your old relatives who are on the way out, but they do not know where to exit.”

Keeping the seed locked,
Go within.

Merge with the Shabd,
In Perfect Balance.

Chant
Har Har Har Har.

Become
Unknown
Unseen
Formless

Let your actions be one with the Guru’s Rehit.

Sitting in the Realm of Truth,
Meditate on Shabd in the Realm of God.

Enlightened in the Realm of Action,
Let the Gurmantra be your worship.

Holding still,
Become filled with the Power of God.

There are Four Minds and Four Covers.

True Friends speak of Truth.
They live as Soldier-Saints,
Always ready to Sacrifice,
Overflowing with Love,
Their Kundalini Rises!

Prana nourishes the Ida and Pingala.
The Shushmana is the Road to the Realm of Raj Yoga.
What Incredible Beauty!
God is Unfolding Everywhere!
The Crown Lotus Blossoms!
Oh! Treasure of Formlessness!

In the heart of the country, there’s a land we call our own,
On which our hopes are planted, by the Guru’s love they’ll grow.
It’s the home of the Khalsa, where our future’s being born,
Stronghold of our nation, where the pure ones shall be sheltered by the blessings of the Lord.
