Yogi Bhajan transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. Some are blessed to call themselves his students. Here are some of their stories.
Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is also known as the Yoga of Awareness; its focus is on self-awareness and delivering an experience of your highest consciousness.
In his capacity as Chief Minister for Sikh Dharma, Yogi Bhajan received the title of Siri Singh Sahib from the Akal Takht in India.
For more than three decades, Yogi Bhajan inspired hundreds of musicians to create and sing beautiful music. Here are some of their songs
Through his teachings, thousands of people were brought to the feet of the Guru. They learned to bow their heads in reverence, love and gratitude to the Shabad Guru, the words of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib.
Starting in 1971, as Mahan Tantric, Yogi Bhajan brought this elevating experience to thousands, to clear their subconscious.
I would like to explain something to you. It is not a good thing to become a teacher of Kundalini Yoga and mix other things. When you practice Kundalini Yoga, you stay with it only. Remember that. ~ July 23, 1996
You must look beyond the mirror! You are the spirit, you are the soul, you are the self. You are the honor; you are the source of all sources. You are the redeemer of all redeemers. From you, this creation is born.

“Happiness is your birthright” – how many times have you heard this sentence or pronounced it in front of your students?
Yogi Bhajan’s projection was so powerful that it allowed the expansion of 3HO to 72 countries around the world, giving birth to an enormous number of opportunities for people to become healthy, happy and holy.
There has to be a balance between Earth and heavens. Too much heavens and too much Earth is no good. God made us human, and that is enlightenment when we keep the balance between heaven and Earth. When we live a balanced life we live happily. Happiness is in balance. There are seven steps to happiness. There is no other way. You must commit, which you don’t want to and I am not asking you, I am just explaining you the seven steps. Happiness believes… your commit happiness believes in your commitment, that will give you character, that will give you dignity, that will give you Divinity, that will give you grace, that will give you power to sacrifice and you will experience happiness.
“Wealth means character, characteristics, straightforwardness, honesty, courage—these are all values. This is all called wealth. We gather together money with the idea that what we cannot get otherwise, we will buy. But you cannot buy courage; you cannot buy character.” – Yogi Bhajan
Around the same time that Columbus discovered America, Guru Nanak was traveling to bring the teachings of a higher consciousness, of “Ek Ong Kar”. While Europe was preparing to colonize the States, Guru Nanak lashed out against injustices, hypocrisies and useless rituals–reminding kings, saints, thieves and sorcerers that the word of God is made of love and compassion.
America is an extraordinary nation.
It is the place where Yogi Bhajan decided to move.
It was the basis for the development of the path of Kundalini yoga.
There was something in America that Yogi Bhajan knew would be difficult to find in other countries:
Such a powerful nature
1. The Law of Pure Potentiality ~ Anything is possible, vast, unlimited.
You must be willing to know that anything is possible. This often entails work on belief-systems, negative thoughts
and other sub-conscious layers which can impede the journey to prosperity.
During the 1960s, Yogi Bhajan began taking care of many people who came from a complex cultural background. They called themselves hippies.
You’ve probably heard of them too. Peace, music, sexual freedom represented a strong desire for social liberation from an identity that no longer had roots.
This led to the desire for rebellion, the rejection of a social position, a recognized identity, an ordinary life.
This was the humus in which kundalini yoga had the opportunity to take root.
We had thought we were working on a sign for the Siri Singh Sahib. But we soon realized that he was working on a nation for us. He was helping us to see our greatness and our destiny. He was helping us to build our identity as the Khalsa nation and to help us build our history. “Sarkar e Khalsa” still stands manifest as a testimony of our hope for the future and a witness of the pure Khalsa Spirit.
Every heartbeat is God’s Name to me.
Every breath of life is ecstasy.
Every night is a bliss to me.
Every day a wonderful reality.
Every life is a living God to me.
Everything is God’s personality.
Every kiss is God’s romance to me.
Every love is God’s originality.
May God give us the power to be loving, kind, peaceful, compassionate, extending ourself to serve and uplift all we see, we meet, we cross. May this day become one of the best, tomorrow one of the super best, and on we go as men of God and women of grace, may we all in His eyes, in His ears, in His tongue, speak the truth. Sat Nam
Do you want the opportunity of finding yourself in a Sangat who, through humility and brotherhood, meets to celebrate the sacred lineage of Kundalini yoga and the treasures of knowledge that Yogi Bhajan bequeathed to us?
We talk about peace, tranquility, and good luck. But so long as those born of woman do not respect woman, there cannot be peace of mind, national peace, or peace in the Universe. So long as man does not have reverence for the primal force, his mental attribute will still want to exploit woman, reduce her, abuse her, and be angry with her. Every male achievement will be empty.
On a cold day in February 1977, Kundalini yoga was growing and starting to expand to Europe and beyond. The Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan, along with about a dozen yogis, were looking for a permanent home for the Summer Solstice Sadhana, to lay roots for our global community.
Dharma is the path to cut down the Karma—the blocks of life—to go ahead, to merge from where you came.
All relationships are based on wisdom.
All relationships are maintained by love.
All relationships are nurtured by selfless service
All selfless service comes out of wisdom.
Whosoever breaks this cycle – lives in pain, loneliness and misery.
A woman’s capacity to nurture and her longing to merge with the Beloved are hardwired into her Arcline. But our culture has taken our essential nature and created a hook: telling us that we need something or someone outside ourselves to complete us—to be whole. So, we often mistake our longing for the Beloved for that someone or something in the material world, which leads to attachment, pain, and heartache. Instead, we must remember that our longing is for the Beloved within us.
In the brain there is a thinking dialogue and that thinking dialogue causes insecurity and insecurity is the Mother of all your problems. The moment you start feeling that you are not secure, you are not. – Yogi Bhajan – 1/1/89
This Dharma is where our teacher sharpened his iron. And, it sharpened just fine, thank you. Our teacher transitioned from Yogi Bhajan to the Siri Singh Sahib through ‘keeping-up’ in sharpening his iron through his service and devotion to Guru Ram Das’ Will. We became his duty, his service. We scored, and, yet how many of us really understand the blessing we lived under? We lived under the blessing of seeing an example of how iron sharpening iron leads to God’s Mercy. ‘Keep-up’ practicing the blessed standard we’ve been given and see what happens. Remember, there’s no time limit, so you can’t be the judge.
I ask every man who would seek peace to realize that peace doesn’t come by protests and rallies. Peace comes by peaceful actions, and so long as those born of the mother will not learn to respect the woman, there shall not be any peace on this planet. The day the woman will not be exploited on this planet, there shall be peace on this Earth.
