Yoga Preachers of Sikhism

The real examples of simple living and great thinking.

Th is category of role models deals with all such persons who got converted to Sikhism through Yoga taught to them by Yogi Harbhajan Singh. He was a deeply devoted Sikh, who was born on 26th August 1929 in the present day Pakistan in the house of a medical Doctor. During his childhood, he had become interested in Yoga and got training from Sant Hazara Singh in a specifi c Yogic practice, Kundalini Yoga. Aft er graduating in Economics, he worked with Revenue Departments, particularly Custom and Excise Department. It was in 1968 that he reached USA. He became sad to see the Hippies, whose life style seemed to him as in the wrong direction for seeking the spiritual path. Th is direction moved through drugs Yogi Ji decided to teach them Yoga, meditation and philosophy mainly inconformity with Gurbani, Gurmat and Sikh way of living. He started an organization called 3HO (Healthy, Happy and Holy) way of life. Hundreds of Hippies was inspired and motivated by his words and actions. Yogi Ji conducted workshops and trained them for a healthy and a spiritual life. Gradually, Yogi Ji started giving Yogic Mantras and Chants from Japuji Sahib and others compositions of Sri Guru Granth Sahib and people started converting to Sikh religion and changed them into Sikhi sarup. When a large number of people were reformed aft er leaving drugs and idle way of living, they needed to be employed. For that purpose Yogi Ji started a number of businesses, the fi rst being Yogi Tea, which is now one of the leading Tea companies in the health food market in the USA and the Europe. Similarly, Akal Security, is another organization which provides security and employes a large number of persons for supplying the best of the security wherever needed. Th e fi rst disciples of Yogi Ji then made other people Sikhs and the number of Sikhs converted from various North American and European countries went on increasing. Today, there are thousands of them in diff erent countries. Th ey do Yoga but not like Indian Yogis who only do ritual and forget the other important aspects of Yoga like concentration and meditation. Th ese converted Sikhs many of whom are Amritdharies, do their Nitnem, listen to the chants of Satnam Waheguru the whole day, do not do anything wrong or contrary to the teachings of the Masters as conveyed to them by their mentor Yogi Ji. Th ey are vegetarians and teetotalers. Th ey have simple living and many of them tried or trying to learn Punjabi to do Path of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. Some of them have becomes Ragis and Kathavachaks a large number of them prefer to send their children to schools where they are taught Punjabi and Sikh history, teachings, values, and tradition. Miri Piri Academy as established by Yogi Ji at Amritsar is one of the most prominent and favourite institution for them. A good number of them have become Yoga teachers like Yogi Ji and trained others in Kundalini Yoga. By Kundalini Yoga, Yogi Ji did not mean what the Hindus used to think about that, rather the nature of Yoga as taught by Yogi Ji and his follower is to awaken the energy of consciousness, to practice in a way that sheds light on our self-imposed limitations, and invites us to think out of the box and develop our intuitive mind. Being able to live from our intuitive mind is one of main goals of a Kundalini practitioner. We have made our role models those Kundalini practitioner including persons from Yogi Ji family, who are doing specifi c service to the Sikh community in one or the other way. Th eir achievements have brought glory for the Sikhs and they can serve as best role models for our drug aff ected and apostate Sikhs living in large number, particularly in Punjab, the land of our Gurus.
