But Satpal Khalsa did not mention any of his, Yogi Bhajan’s or his family’s violations, including participation in Hindu pujas and having Hindu last rites for Yogi Bhajan performed by Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswati at the world famous Parmarth Ashram Rishikesh, India, in 2005.

The Happy, Healthy, Holy Organization, or 3HO, and Sikhnet.com are among the many nonprofit organizations founded by the late Yogi Harbhajan Khalsa, popularly known as Yogi Bhajan. After immigrating to Los Angeles in the late 1960s, Bhajan made himself the Mahan Tantric, leader of a spiritual movement he called Sikh-Dharma. He mixed Hindu Tantric Yoga philosophy and practices with Gurbani and Sikh practices, and taught it to his disciples as the only authentic Sikhism. Although Bhajan used “Sikh” in the name of this organization and “Khalsa” as the surname for all his followers, they do not follow Gurbani or the Sikh Rahit Maryada. They also have altered the Guru’s Bani in their English translations to justify their own beliefs and lifestyle. Bhajan kept his community inaccessible to Sikhs, and successfully networked with the Sikh leadership. But with the advent of the Internet, Sikhs are beginning to take note of Bhajan’s yogis. They are complaining. For more info see: http://www.sikhfreepress.org/headlines/2667/american-yogis-distort-sikh-scripture
