When the heart prays, God obeys.  Prayer is one instrument in the head of man which can subject God and command Him to action.  When the heart of one opens up for prayer, the heart of the Big One opens up to obey.  Prayer is a key which opens the biggest lock of destiny.  Prayer is said and prayer is heard.  There is  never a reaction, provided it is a prayer from the very heart of you.

One man, Yogi Bhajan, alone and unknown as God willed, came to Los Angeles, in December of 1968, and began teaching.  He soon had endeared himself to thousands of people by his love and compassion, by his understanding of their problems and their needs, and by his ability to give them not only guidance but a concrete method to work out their own solutions.

The title of Bhai Sahib is recognized by Sikh communities everywhere as a title of Great honor and respect, to be bestowed in the event of outstanding spiritual qualities and/or great achievement in serving the Guru’s mission.  It is also a title which is hereditary, as it is passed on for the male heirs of the families in which it has been bestowed.
In the case of the Siri Singh sahib, the title of Bhai Sahib has come to him by three different avenues

The New Year draws near us, as the one before ends.
Outside a blizzard, inside with friends
Singing songs of the Guru in a candlelit hall,
Safe from the cold of the endless snow fall.
By a cedarwood fire, I write you a song.
In the ten years I’ve known you, I’ve taken too long
To tell you I love you. I want you to know.
Of the things deep inside that aren’t easy to show.
The day will come someday, we both will be dead,
But some will remember these things that we said.

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.

This was written by Robyn Knapton of Los Angeles, California and shared on page 113 of the book, The Man Called the Siri Singh Sahib, which was published in 1979.

In a tiny ashram eight years ago
A young girl sat beginning to grow,
At the foot of her teacher whom she loved so and
She thought she had naught to let him know.
She brought flowers to place at his feet,
And got high as he’d rant and raise high holy heat,
As overflowing crowds learned a new way to cope,
With their lives and their hassles without tricks or dope
They learned to change their “no’s” to “yes,”
And begin to clean up their cosmic mess,
Changed their jeans to purest white,
(Changed their darkness into light)
And she wanted to give him something as bright;
After searching her soul, she found she could write.
As words of devotion flowed from her pen
She knew what to give this king among men:
A gift from the heart given to uplift the world,
Is far greater than gifts that are gilded and pearled.

We are going to make it, God as my

witness and you as my partner.

On this path, we have walked many times –

Keep Courage.

That is also a gift of God.

Though the thunder is terrible,

and your delicate ears are not meant

to hear that wrath,

But they still can listen to the beat of

my heart,

it is rhythmic and it is going.

Your feet are trembling like the thunder

that makes the Earth tremble with the shock.

But, in the light of your lightning you

can still fill me with spirit.

I promise I will carry on, Oh my soul.
