The fortunate bride dresses and decorates herself,
Union is her one desire!
When form merges into form,
Salvation is attained.
Give your body, mind and wealth to your Guru,
Serve the ones who serve the Saint,
Then Peace fills your heart …
And the sweetest fruit is yours!

This poem is a loving and humble self-portrait. Here the Siri Singh Sahib tells how Guru Ram Das granted him his blessings and protection so that he could become a vehicle for the fulfillment of Guru Gobind Singh’s prophecy that the Khalsa will become 960 million strong. This is really a hymn of heartfelt gratitude from the Siri
Singh Sahib to Guru Ram Das for elevating him from the lowest to the highest.

Thinking and thinking
The world is dying.
You can’t know anything by thinking.

Between one action and the next
There is just a tiny gap.
Who can you trust?

By living the Dharmic life
We move the world along.

Whoever the True King blesses
Becomes the King of kings.

Yogi Bhajan asked me to gather together all the poems he had written in Gurmukhi and translate them into English.   The result was a book titled “Furmaan Khalsa” (the command of the Khalsa). 

Yogi Bhajan. Part man part myth; part saint and part warrior.  Within these pages lies one of the most extraordinary works of the twentieth century; a manual of conscious living written in the form of 108 luminous and inspiring poems. Based on the science of human consciousness called Raj Yoga, and writ­ ten as a guide for all the future generations, these poems answer the questions of how to live successfully with an open heart and an open mind in the midst of the turmoil of the modern world. . . how to experience your cosmic identity as a man or woman. . . how to raise children who are strong, secure and fearless. What does it mean to love and be loved? What are the physical, mental, and spiritual effects of what we eat and drink, and how can we unlock the unused potential energies within, so that we can really become effective to create positive changes within ourselves and in the world?
