The heart of our yatra was five days spent at the home of Yogi Bhajan in Anandpur at Dashmesh Sadan. Yogi Bhajan named his home to reflect the humility, grace, and devotion that Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh Master, embodied. Guru Gobind Singh had made his home in this area and it became the birthplace of the Khalsa.
From the moment we entered this beautiful home we all felt the deep connection to the light of Yogi Bhajan within and without, and the spirit of Guru Gobind Singh. Surrounded by lush green fields and sacred temples dotting the surrounding mountains, we felt held in the arms of these great teachers and the Divine Feminine.

In the yogic scripture it says, “Even a glance from the eyes of a holy man can cure mental and physical imbalances.” Gazing with the eyes is recognized as a powerful technique for focusing pranic energy. The pranic energy gives life to the atom, all material, and the mind. The laws of regulation and interaction of pranic energy form the basis of most occult sciences and explain many obscure passages in the scriptures. The general technique of gazing is called Tratakam. Applying Tratakam to a particular image of a teacher is called Guru Yoga.

According to Guru Singh (Los Angeles), who recounted this story to me in 2012, there was a need to have photos of Yogi Bhajan for brochures and posters, so in October 1969 Guru Singh and Shakti Parwha Kaur took him to a photo studio located on Melrose Ave. near Jules Buccieri’s antique store, where the first kundalini yoga classes were held. The photographer was well known for doing “head shots” for movie stars so he took numerous photos of Yogi Bhajan.

“Guru Nanak’s own sons, Baba Siri Chand and Baba Lakshmi Chand, were perfect. Don’t think that there was anything less in them. But Guru Nanak wanted to give the grace to the householder. One gadee or throne of spirituality was given to Baba Siri Chand for the Udhaasee mat (school of thought), the unattached sect of that time. Therefore the other throne was to be given to a disciple, and that was Lehna who became Guru Angad.”

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.

It is not an overstatement to say that Yogi Bhajan, the master of Kundalini Yoga, was the most influential individual in spreading the use of the Gong, from India to the Western world, as an instrument for meditation and healing. Beginning in the early 1970s, his students (of which I was one) used the gong, in their ashrams around the world, to help people recover from the damages of drug use.
