Yogiji was a Saturn Teacher are the words Soorya Kaur´s (staff member of Yogi Bhajan). She shared with this photo on page 76-77 of her book YogiJi – The Light of Our Souls, written in 2005

Yogiji was a Saturn teacher, and often appeared to be very angry with us for our shortcomings. On one such occasion, I had a chance to look at his aura, which was an exquisite violet, and I knew he was merely acting (angry). This was his way to help lift us up from one realm to the other. He sometimes said, “I only yell at those I love.” We comforted each other that we must be the really special, lucky ones who got the brunt of his anger so much. He used this technique of mock anger on several of us, and half-jokingly we would say, “Maybe he should love us a little less!”

Soorya Kaur blessings

I wish to thank God for many, many blessings, but in particular, for my good friend Neesha Singh.  I could never have done this book without her editing and writing skills, and innate sense for photography.  We forged a partnership that made this book a reality in an extremely short period of time.

While I was working on the idea of this book, my pictures (I always attempted to make him smile for me) opened a floodgate of the intimate memories that I share here with you.  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 as 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, and his bond with Guru Ram Das was sealed forever.  Guru Ram Das became his and our patron Guru.  We were taught 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!
