Long Beach, California, August 26, 1985 – Yogiji’s 56th birthday party

Yogi Bhajan inspired people to excel and to live for each other in group consciousness.

“In group consciousness, we have to be responsible to everything, not only to a teacher, but to the brotherhood of the man, to the sisterhood of the woman.  It is the brotherhood and the sisterhood of the man and the woman to which man aspires to live.  That gives him the highest awareness.  We are the student and the teacher of this yoga of awareness, that we call Kundalini Yoga.  It is difficult to have awareness, to live in group consciousness, because group consciousness means unselfishness.”

This quote by Yogiji is one example of how he inspired people to excel and to live in group consciousness.

Both this quote by him and this picture taken by Soorya Kaur (staff member of Yogi Bhajan) were shared on page 52 of her book, YogiJi – The Light of Our Souls, written in 2005.

Soorya Kaur Shares Gratitude for Yogiji and Guru Ram Das

If I may humbly say this, I don’t think of this as “my book”. Because Guru Ram Das and Yogiji saw me through it, and it took on a life of its own.

It is difficult to decide whether Guru Ram Das adopted Yogiji or Yogiji adopted Guru Ram Das.  Every morning he performed Seva (selfless service) washing the floors of the Golden Temple in Amritsar, India. Yogiji heard Guru Ram Das’ Bani (prayers).  During this period, he was enlightened by a miraculous spiritually elevating experience. He and his bond with Guru Ram Das was sealed forever.  Guru Ram Das became his and our patron Guru.  We learn to call upon him to take our pain, to sort out our problems, to be there for us, to produce a miracle when needed, and he always delivered.

Your experience is important!
