- We recognize there are many dimensions to the Siri Singh Sahib´s teachings and that a profound connection exists amongst all aspects of them. When all areas of his teachings are implemented into a person’s life, they are complimentary to each other and provide a complete path that covers the whole spectrum of the human experience. We also recognize that the different streams of the Siri Singh Sahib Ji’s teachings have specific benefits and uniqueness, and people are free to approach them according to their own inner calling. Here are two examples, 1) We recognize the profound connection between Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan and the path of Sikh Dharma. However, one does not need to be a Sikh to benefit from the practice of Kundalini Yoga, or vice versa. 2) While Shabad Guru is a fundamental part of Sikh Dharma, we recognize that the Naad of the Shabad Guru is also a human technology of elevation for all seeking to connect to their souls, which does not necessarily require identifying as a Sikh. Meditating on the Shabad Guru is also used in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, as a tool for spiritual growth and connecting to the One within.
- We recognize the importance for teachers not to become attached to or dependent on their students because it creates the risk of the teacher altering the teachings to please the students for personal benefit. Therefore, it is highly recommended not to rely solely on teaching for one’s income as a matter of personal consciousness and prosperity. We recommend that there be an emphasis to use the teachings of the Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan to help ourselves and others become more prosperous. For those cases where people wish to dedicate themselves solely to teaching, we highly recommend that teachers be very attentive not to be swayed to trade any of our values for personal benefit.
Conscious Communication Guidelines
1. Speak for yourself, using “I think,” “I feel,” or “In my opinion,” when expressing yourself to the group, rather than attempting to express the opinion of the whole group.
2. Take responsibility for your feelings. No one can make you feel anything you do not choose to accept.
3. When another person is speaking, listen and demonstrate your presence and engagement verbally or non-verbally.
4. Speak to elevate, be honest and establish a shared compassion and reality. “Understand through compassion, or you will misunderstand the times”. ~ Yogi Bhajan
5. Speak from your own heart, take ownership of each word as it expresses your heart and reality, not that of others.
6. Be aware of your personal assumptions, preconceptions and beliefs and use the neutral mind to fully let in the infinite possibilities of the moment and honor the reality of the other.
