When I started taping the Siri Singh Sahib’s classes in Los Angeles almost eleven years ago, I had no idea that what I was doing was anything more than a hobby. One thing led to another and today, not only do I sell lecture tapes, but our company, Golden Temple Recordings, has become the main source tor all types of recorded audio and video tapes relating to the 3HO and Sikh Dharma lifestyles.  Being able to supply people with something that is so beneficial and appreciated has been and continues to be a most rewarding experience.

To fully convey the impressions that are deepest within me of the early years in Europe, I wish I could show moving pictures and video glimpses of expressions and situations: like Tantric in Holland, the Siri Singh Sahib’s eyes as he counselled, welcoming smiles in Hamburg, a Golden Temple Restaurant kitchen scene.

And then I remember the sounds of the Siri Singh Sahib’s voice, the melody of voices translating into languages of the Mediterranean and the North, at the Yoga Festival, the clatter of pots, and the hum of restaurant machines in the Golden Temple Restaurants.

Winter Solstice Sadhana, Nineteen Seventy-One,
We went to Florida to enjoy the sun
At the ashram of Baba Siri Chand,
Under the green trees, beside the pond.
We set the camp and pitched our tents
To enjoy, together, that great event.

In 1991, the  Sirl Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan  dictated the following Administrator’s Alphabet to his staff, as it appeared in the Summer, 1991 Beads of Truth.

People are the most valuable asset to any busi­ness or institution, but it is always a question of how to bring out their best qualities, both for themselves and the company.  The Administrator’s Alphabet helps to give guidance on how to do that.

Every Heartbeat” is designed to heal mental pain by giving hope and a deep understanding of spiritual truth. “God is Within Me” is wonderful as background music or for meditation. This soothing album with beautiful lyrics feels as if it removes the worries of the world. The voice of Nirinjan Kaur has a rare quality that is soothing, meditative, and truthful. The ancient traditional chants are enhanced with English lyrics written by  Yogi Ji , master of white tantric yoga and Kundalini Yoga. These lyrics contain the essence of the ancient chants and together, the two languages create a powerful synergy.
