This was written by M.S.S. Krishna Kaur Khalsa from Los Angeles, California and shared on page 106-107 of the book, “The Man Called the Siri Singh Sahib”, published in 1979.
The Siri Singh Sahib has brought many wonderful teachings to the longing youth of Western origin. The pure wisdom of our ancestors pours forth from him with such love and grace, humor and dignity. Barrels full of Universal Truth come tumbling from his golden throat. More and more and more essential knowledge and information gets passed on. Where will it end? Will he run out of things to teach us? Will we ever complete the course? I don’t think so. I don’t see how it could be possible. He is very obviously plugged into the Universal storehouse of knowledge and, by the Grace of God, is a fountain from which we are to drink.
The Siri Singh Sahib is the greatest example of everything he teaches. As he says, “Teaching is being”. Of all the lessons we learn at his feet, the thing he seems the most to preach is “balance”. Balance means grace: graceful living, graceful speaking, and graceful being are the essence of life on this Earth. So often, he has told us that it doesn’t matter what you do as long as you do it with grace. It doesn’t matter what you say… You can say anything to anyone, as long as you feel graceful about it, and say it gracefully.
I have been privileged to observe the Siri Singh Sahib for seven years I have watched him tear away the crusts of negativity and ego from a person and then set him on the path to self-love. All this he does with great selflessness and grace.
He appears to be an ordinary man. One with great wisdom, tenderness and joy. Yet, one can easily witness his divinity through his passion and compassion, as well as through the strength and power in his projection. These are all qualities, and he is like a juggler, standing on one foot, balancing every quality with grace and precision. This is no feat of an ordinary man. He truly bears the markings of a man of God. What a blessing to be able to study first-hand the living example of these teachings.
I love sitting at his feet, in his little receiving room, and listening to him “work” on his students. My God! What an experience! At first, I was fascinated with the bright colored juggler’s balls that he kept tossing in the air… His flair, his personality, his clever way of pulling people out of the quicksand. Then, I realized that what I should have been looking at was how he balanced himself on his big toe. There he is, suspended on a tight rope, strung out over the world’s insanity; miraculously balancing out people’s pain and confusion, tenderly supporting their need to be loved. Cutting though their garbage with the sureness of a first-class surgeon.
Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji, the most sensitive man of our time, is a genius at bringing people to their senses. I have learned as much by studying him, as I have by listening to his lectures. I have been witnessed the total freedom he has, the total commitment and selflessness, the courage, the love, and the compassion for all human beings.
This is a man totally committed to elevating the quality of life for all people. May God and Guru always bless him and protect him along his way.
“Please understand me. I am merciless because I believe that if I am merciful, time will be very merciless to you. It is better that I train you to face that time. We are on the edge of everything and we’ll continue to have this situation. I’m trying to give everybody a chance in that situation, so whatever little area of weakness there is, it will be eliminated. You must eliminate your weaknesses.” ~ Yogi Bhajan
