"Sikhism and Tantric Yoga"

"Yogi Bhajan is using the sacred Sikh mantras and the sacred name of Guru Ram Das as a mantle for his Tantric Sex Yoga which will inevitably lead to mental and physical debauchery of those who take his brand of Sikhism contaminated by crazy sex-energizing asanas seriously."

The Unto Infinity Board: Kartar Singh Khalsa, Peraim Kaur Khalsa, Siri Karm Kaur Khalsa, and Sopurkh Kaur Khalsa

I have received and read your March 25, 2010 letter. Below is my response as a Minister of Sikh Dharma, as a member of the Khalsa Council and as a student of the SSS.

First let me first share my own simple message- to paraphrase Kabir- a lie is like someone sitting in the corner eating garlic-sooner or later everybody knows.

From your recent and past communication, it appears to me that you don’t want to be part of an identifiable spiritual community. It appears to me that you want the status, control, the financial benefit, and recognition of leadership but not the responsibility and accountability of actually having to live what you purport to espouse and teach. It is my belief that in the age of truth, however, one cannot expect to inform or uplift anyone with a lie.

Based on what I have read the UI was not created as “overseers”. You were given an opportunity to serve this community as sevadars. And please when you use the words” based on the teachings of the Siri Singh Sahib/Yogi Bhajan”, it is my preference that you use an asterisk or other clarifying phrase to indicate that what you mean is the “teachings that we(UI) believe we can conveniently practice, and forget the rest.”

If I take your statements in this letter at face value:” The members of Unto Infinity oversee the corporate boards,……, based on the teachings of the Siri Singh Sahib/ Yogi Bhajan, you are no longer qualified to “over see” this organization or its resources. The SSS did not teach that dharmic business should be transferred to individuals, he did not teach that when you
get a lot of money, or feel “conveniently evolved” you should abandon your spiritual identity, or yogic principles regarding maintaining one’s hair, the consumption of intoxicants and the consumption of meat. He didn’t teach that when some one asks hard questions you should lie or deliberately hide the facts- so if by your own admission, your ability to “oversee” is based on this fundamental criteria-“the teachings of Siri Singh Sahib/Yogi Bhajan” then in my opinion you are no longer qualified to populate the UI Board.

By the way, I love the “overseer” concept you have put forward and the line “Unto Infinity is not the one who does the work. Our job is to facilitate your work.” When do we break out the mint juleps? I guess all us chilluns ought to be mighty happy that Massa UI is up in the Big House lookin’ out for us.

In my opinion if you are not ready to do the work, then you need to be gone. Retire on your own dime and your own time. The SSS worked with UI (you and I) the same way he worked with everybody. Despite your inflated self-opinion all he provided was the way. If you don’t walk the way you don’t have the teachings or the wisdom contained therein, no matter how many copyrighted videos you control. You folks don’t know any more than any of the other
hundreds if not thousands of intelligent, successful, aware people in this organization that have been faithfully practicing this technology for the last thirty plus years. You didn’t get an autographed special yoga manual or a secret handshake so let that bit of animated fantasy go.

As I understand 3HO-Sikh Dharma we don’t have “individual missions” and “various organizations” we have one mission with multiple delivery points. The seed and the tree are one even though there are many branches bearing much fruit. Without truth and without an identity that reflects and embodies truth then the seed is corrupt, the tree is corrupt and the fruit while it might look good will not nourish.

I find it curious that you could not attend the Khalsa Council meetings last year in order to “begin a fresh process to introduce (y)ourselves and (y)our perspectives” before the entire Khalsa Council, but after being sued and basically busted regarding your pattern and practice of conduct inconsistent with the SSS’s teachings and vision, exposing your self-professed abandonment of your role as Ministers and trustees for this dharma you had an “epiphany” and called together a still unnamed group to make this presentation.

(I checked my mailbox, e-mail accounts and phone messages and I didn’t get an invite)

If you are truly sincere then you will resign immediately as members of UI to free up the space for individuals with the qualifications and commitment to fill the position.

If you want to demonstrate true commitment to SSS/YB’s global mission then you will immediately rescind the transfer of Golden Temple to Golden Temple Management and terminate the sale of Golden Temple cereal division.

Your synopsis of your recent meeting says to me that you gathered some folks together, that you admitted that you have abandoned your status as Ministers, you acknowledged that you have abandoned the SSS’s teachings( which of course you are committed to protect and preserve, but not practice) – and since I have not seen any letters calling for your resignation from the people, who attended this meeting, I am free to speculate that the people
there with you acknowledged that as long as the money is flowing, they were O.K. with your conduct and your status as members of UI.

As a child of the 70’s I am all for “joy”, “what feels right”, “creative flow” and” groovy man”. One might be inclined to argue and ask:” After all isn’t this why we came to study yoga, so we could get off on a “natural high”, man. Did we really sign up for some Eastern religion where we have to stand out, wear a turban and a” dress” with some “skinny pants”? Can't can we just “grow” and have some “unique surprises”( read get rid of the crap that we really don’t want to do)”. My answer is you can, but you can’t lead this organization or control its for-profit, non-profit entities, assets and resources.

As for personal transformation and change, if the technology and your prayers have allowed you to evolve into individuals who are no longer qualified to lead this organization, then accept the next logical step in that “evolution” and move on. I am fine with “transformation” and I invite you to transform your selves right on out of here. Leave the resources, the
money, the business and the land and those of us who are still “un-evolved” will handle it from here

While in your opinion or limited view there is "no single look, practice, nor set of rules that can capture that infinite spirit through any defined conformity," our job, as I understand the way it was defined by SSS is not to capture the “infinite spirit” and skip through the fields scattering flowers. Our job is to serve. We were trained that in order to optimize and facilitate that service people need to recognize and find us immediately by sight, not after some all night gestalt session.

Besides we are musical and music has rules of rhythm and laws of harmony. Within that defined musical structure there is infinite space for individual creativity. The same is true with the identity of the Khalsa as we have demonstrated by creating everything from women’s turbans, the evolution of turban styles, to malas, stylized kirpans and embroidered bana. Just like music, as Khalsa we have to play the right notes so people can recognize the
song- how each of us plays that song has infinite possibilities for individual creative expression within the form.

So if you are espousing the old Hippie anthem: “I’m still afraid of rules, man” and you are still conforming to non-conformity- let it go. It’s a new day.

As I read it, your view of discipline is that it is “a means to experience (y)our eternal unfoldment”. That’s nice. Since you said it, I hope you know what it means. In my experience and opinion the discipline we have been trained in provides the wisdom and the endurance to serve when it’s not convenient. As the world changes even more dramatically the training and aligned strength we have developed will allow us to serve effectively under greater and greater adversity.

I too like “blossoms” and I also like reality. In my opinion the flowers of mutual appreciation, love, peace and unity will not bloom on a tree watered by secrecy, misrepresentation and intimidation.

I am intrigued with your statement that:

“Some people have started to create separation by choosing who is accepted and who is not. The core teaching Siri Singh Sahib chose to print on his business card was “If you can’t see God in All, you can’t see God at all.” We feel that our community can be a leader in setting an example for peaceful co-existence, upliftment and service.”

Let’s put to rest this nonsensical argument that “some people” have started to create separation by choosing “who is accepted and who is not”.

What the law suit says is that if you were trusted by the SSS and the community to watch over money or other resources meant for the community and instead you manipulated your trusted status, changed documents, fired Ministers, and took, used, or misappropriated resources meant for the community for your own personal benefit then you need to be removed from your trusted position, undo what you did, and give back what you took.

What I and others Ministers have said is that if SSS appointed you to lead based on your status as a Sikh Dharma Minister, a set of standardized qualifications that were/are consistent with SSS's teachings and the teachings of the Guru’s (And Guru Ram Das sits on the Throne of Kundalini Yoga) and you abandon your status, those qualifying elements, misappropriate assets meant for the community, abandon a large body of the teachings which have to do with diet, hair, intoxicants and maintaining a functional, recognizable, organic spiritual identity, then you are no longer qualified to lead this community, control its policies or manage its entities, businesses and assets.

By saying the above, I have made no statement regarding your status as an accepted and recognized creature of God’s creation. You are simply in my opinion no longer qualified and acceptable as a leader of this community.

As far as seeing God in all, I can see the God in the rattle snake, it doesn’t mean I will underestimate God’s infinite creative wisdom in designing the rattle snake and put my hand out so it can bite me.

In my opinion the foundation of the teachings shared by SSS/YB is the Siri Guru Granth Sahib. The Guru can’t be bought, sold, or intimidated. Every single day it speaks the truth. Every moment of our training, every lecture, every sadhana, every class was/is is designed in my opinion to prepare and align our nervous systems, mind and body to hear, absorb and act in a manner
consistent with its wisdom. The status of the technology of Kundalini yoga and the disciplined life of a Sikh are intertwined. We get up early, read Japji , chant:”Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo”, we do some BOF, stretch pose, meditate on God’s name all so we can be most awake and open to hear the words of the Guru, every day. For some this may be a tough pill to swallow because the discipline required to grow spiritually on this path becomes less about preference (where the ego still has some leverage) and more about duty, sacrifice, service and doing the right thing(where the ego has to be conisistently wrestled down to zero)

In the final analysis it is my view that this sacred technology: Kundalini Yoga, Shabd Guru, White Tantric Yoga, Naad Yoga and the ancillary technologies to which we have been exposed and in which we are trained are not the personal domain or property of any individual or group, they are not just for the folks who “play ball”, or “the inner circle” or any of that nonsense. The full array of technologies are available to the world through all of us. As the initial trustees of that technology we have a duty in my opinion to present this technology with the same integrity and consciousness with which it was presented to us. We were left with instructions, a blueprint and a mandate to develop and maintain the skills, discipline, identity and attributes of the Khalsa in order to safeguard, protect, preserve, and share this sacred information as we transition from the Piscean to the Aquarian Age. Whether we follow these instructions, maintain the skills, discipline, identity and attributes will of course be up to us and will in large measure in my opinion impact our success in fulfilling our mission.

In closing, I think it is both tragic and unfortunate that you, the members of UI continue to leverage the trust of the SSS, use his words, his teachings and members of the community to facilitate your own personal agenda and to justify your own inability to admit to yourselves perhaps, but certainly to the community that you have breached SSS’s trust, manipulated SSS’s words, abandoned SSS’s teachings and betrayed your teacher and a community that
counted on you to deliver.

To the Members of the Khalsa Council:

The Record

A “Record” is defined as anything (such as a document or a phonograph record or a photograph) providing permanent evidence of or information about past events.

Records are therefore from my perspective very important. They provide clarityabout past statements and occurrences and in many instances are available to settle disputes about what was actually said or done.

As the Khalsa Council and as Ministers of Sikh Dharma, I believe it is extremely important to examine the record of guidance, teachings and discipline provided to us by the SSS and to make our best effort to create a our own record which is true to and consistent with that guidance, those teachings and that discipline.

Below is part of a 1999 Solstice transcript containing a quote from "Kartar Singh", currently a member of the Unto Infinity Board, as well as part of the current Golden Temple Management Group. The contained statements were made on June 25, 1999 at Summer Solstice on stage at Ram Das Puri in the presence of the SSS and in front of the sangat.

I would have to check the video tape but I am confident that Kartar did not stroll up on stage in his “Hefner-esque” maroon smoking jacket and black mock turtleneck sporting a “call me Sonny, not Tubbs” pony tail and beard stubble, or hide behind a mask with Peraim (see attached photos).


June 25, 1999 (YB 318)

“YB: … Kartar has to do something to say, what else are you doing here, open this, Kartar, you have to do something?

Kartar: Sat Nam.

YB: Tell him.

Kartar: Sat Nam, okay, hope everybody has had a happy solstice.

Class clapping.

Student: My name is Kartar Singh, I am the senior CEO of KIIT. And I wanted to tell you about what the Siri Singh Sahib’s has given us. It is a group of businesses, a number of which we started about twenty-five years ago with about six hundred dollars in a garage with a couple little funky businesses. Over those twenty-five years with the vision, direction and guidance from the Siri Singh Sahib we have grown into thirteen companies in one big corporation. In this year we’ll do approximately a hundred and fifty million dollars in sales and we have four thousand employees worldwide.

We have product companies and you are enjoying some of the products now; you have yogi tea at solstice. We have service companies. We have the pleasure of having a security company that is doing security for solstice this summer and we are all over the world. We have operations in the US , we are in Europe and we are happy to announce we just started first preparation in India where we have we now have a school: Miri Piri academy. And with the teachings of the Siri Singh Sahib we’ll start a earn and learn program with the kids so that they can incorporate working and studying at the same time.

Our future focus will on herbs and organic. We also have a computer company and we have a new product called diagonal management system from the Siri Singh Sahib and Sun and Son will bring that for the future.

We developed our businesses to be ready for the Aquarian age and it’s our mission to bring products and services that incorporate the teachings of Yogi Bhajan and a technology to humanity to bring upliftment and we also want to have jobs for the family, jobs for all of you. To contact us you can go to the booth and there is a brochure that gives the phone numbers, fax numbers, and e-mails and the last thing I wanted to say was drink more Yogi tea, eat lots of peace cereals, be healthy, happy, and holy, thank you.

Class clapping.

YB: I tell you what, you can bet on this, sooner or later time will come when people have to drink yogi tea, have to eat herbal cereals, they have to, there is no way out. So technically speaking we are just preparing for that great tomorrow which is coming towards us. And as the Wahe Guru chew is very sweet so same way you be very sweet and meet people head on and uplift them. I’ll be asking all my staff to be on the platform to say thanks to you for coming and if there is any mistake they are very proud it happened.

Class clapping.

YB: And all this corporation into KIIT Khalsa International Industry and Traders would not have been possible if ED would not have done her job, so this executive director Siri Ram Kaur come on they want to see you what are you doing, forgive me she is a Virgo and then Taran Taran Kaur which spread our everything in Europe and now she is working here. The possibility of everything is very beautiful because all businesses which we started or I started what do you want to call it, are now not mine. And all the land is not mine, simply we pay the bills. I hope you will learn from it and create the glory which belongs to you tomorrow.”


Fast forward to today- based upon my understanding of the recent disclosures in the law suit, the Kartar Singh that makes the statement above is the same Kartar who is a member of the UI Board (although he recused himself for reasons that should appear obvious) which approved the 2007 transfer/sale of Golden Temple (a company reportedly generating $125 million dollars in sales annually) from UI to Kartar and five other “executives” at Golden Temple known collectively as Golden Temple Management (GTM). GTM paid a whopping
$100.00 to own Golden Temple .

This transfer came with the added provision that the six(6) members of GTM are and have been entitled to 90% of the GT profits from 2007 to the present with only 10% going to UI (after providing UI with a return on its capital contribution). Moreover the deal provides that upon the closing of the pending sale of the cereal division , 90% of that division’s proceeds (after UI's capital contribution is repaid) are to be paid to UI of which Kartar is a member. Golden Temple Management (including Kartar) will continue to be a 90% owner of Yogi Tea, the remaining division of Golden Temple . To my knowledge, none of these facts were disclosed to the Sikh Dharma Community at any time prior to their discovery as a result of this lawsuit.

Finally, the following exchange appears in the deposition of Roy Lambert (2-24-2010), attorney for UI regarding his e-mail response to an April19, 2009 e-mail from Amrit Kaur Khalsa, Chancellor regarding the ownership of Golden Temple ( sent I believe as a result questions raised at the Khalsa Council meetings last spring):

Q (McGrory). Do you think you were trying to hide the fact Golden Temple Management had an ownership interest?

A(Lambert). I am sure we weren't going to disclose that, yes.

Q (McGrory) Yes, so you were intentionally not revealing that, correct?

A. (Lambert)Yes.

Q. (McGrory) Even though you knew that was one of the purposes of the question, correct?

A. (Lambert) That's correct (Lambert Depo. p. 121 lines 14-25).

(Is it any wonder that Kartar and Peraim are wearing masks in the attached photo?)

With all due respect, worrying about "judging" someone in this situation is in my opinion a little like worrying about if the gasoline used to burn your house down is leaded or unleaded, while the house is still on fire and you are in the house.

We as a Khalsa have a chance and a choice. The lecture quotes above, the attached photos, the actions of UI, SDS, Golden Temple Management prior to and since the SSS’s passing and our response to these actions and events as Khalsa are all and will continue to be a matter of Record. My intent is that the record we create as the Khalsa honors our Guru, our teacher and fulfills our identity,destiny, and responsibility as Khalsa. I look forward to convening with my fellow Khalsa Brothers and Sisters at the McCurdy School in April.

“Amid the legal infighting following Yogi Bhajan’s death, critics are offering another portrait of the Sikh leader.”
3HO Sikhs are now fighting amongst themselves in a lawsuit over the millions of dollars in profits made from using the sacred Sikh religious symbols and scriptures for their own personal gain.3HO Sikhs, who follow Yogi Bhajan, funnel the money to support Yogi Bhajan's tantric cult church which 3HO Sikhs have deceptively camouflaged using names like "Sikh Dharma International", "3HO foundation", "Sikh Dharma Stewardship","","Sikh Dharma Worldwide", "Unto Infinity Board","Khalsa Council" and "KRI(Kundalini Research Institute)". See "Sikhnet's" and "Sikh Dharma International's" slick new websites which were produced with the millions in ill-gained profits using the name of the Golden Temple, names and images of the Sikh Gurus, and sacred Sikh shabads for profit in commercial enterprises.

"Bhajan was a leader ‘by fluke’

Recently, a friend sent me articles from The Register-Guard on litigation involving Yogi Bhajan’s organizations in Oregon. The letters to the editor that followed, critical of the reporter, prompt me to throw some light on the subject. Bhajan was extremely good at what he did, but propagation of Sikhism he was not. Criticism of Bhajan’s cult cannot be construed as criticism of Sikhism.

Trilochan Singh, a distinguished Sikh scholar, in his 1977 book “Sikhism and Tantric Yoga,” describes Bhajan devastatingly: “Yogi Bhajan is a Sikh by birth, a Maha Tantric by choice but without training, and a ‘Sri Singh Sahib’ and self-styled leader of the Sikhs of the Western Hemisphere by fluke and mysterious strategy.” There was no mystery to his strategy. He ingratiated himself with the Sikh religious leadership in Punjab, which was more corrupt than the Vatican during the time of Martin Luther.

According to the Tantrics, the best form of worship is the fullest satisfaction of the sexual desires of man, therefore sexual intercourse is prescribed as a part of Tantric worship. In the annals of abuse of women, some had harems, others had concubines and Bhajan had secretaries. The Sikh gurus condemned the Tantrics and their practices. All the cases mentioned in The Register-Guard had merit.

Humility is the hallmark of a Sikh, and Bhajan had none of it. Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism, describes people such as Bhajan succinctly: “Those ... who have no virtues but are filled with egotistical pride.”

Hardev Singh Shergill President, Khalsa Tricentennial Foundation of North America Editor-in-chief, The Sikh Bulletin El Dorado Hills, Calif.

"Sikhism and Tantric Yoga"
by Dr. Trilochan Singh (Link to entire book)

"The book Sikhism And Tantric Yoga is available at: website which is operated by a genuine White Sikh is highly recommended. Gursant Singh was a member of the Yogi Bhajan Cult (3HO and the Sikhnet Gora Sikhs or White Sikhs) for over 30 years and has intimate knowledge about the inner workings of this cult which attempts to miscegnate Sikhism with Hindu idolatry. I downloaded the book from Gursant’s website and found it to be absolutely compelling. I read it in one compulsive and sustained draught. It is a study not only about cults in Sikhism but about the miscegenation of the Sikh Religion by Hinduism. It is a classic work rendered in beautiful English prose and it is patently the work of a profound intellectual scholar with a deep knowledge of Sikhism."

The Name of Golden Temple and its Murals

"In England last year a firm advertised some blue jeans as Jesus Jeans. The whole religious world of England rose in one protest and stopped the manufacture of these jeans. The word Golden Temple has become an instrument of commercial affairs of Yogi Bhajan He has now even named shoe stores as Golden Temple. I was given a "Wha Guru Chew.""

"Yogi Bhajan is using the sacred Sikh mantras and the sacred name of Guru Ram Das as a mantle for his Tantric Sex Yoga which will inevitably lead to mental and physical debauchery of those who take his brand of Sikhism contaminated by crazy sex-energizing asanas seriously."

Read about the "war between 3HO Sikh's Unto Infinity Board and Yogi Bhajan's Sikh Dharma". Yogi Bhajan set up all these organizations and installed their leaders. Decide for yourself if the Tantric Sex Yoga which Yogi Bhajan taught inevitably leads to mental and physical debauchery.

Many of these 3HO profiteers have cut their hair and renounced Sikhi! See these pictures below of Kartar Khalsa CEO of Golden Temple Foods and chairman of Yogi Bhajan's "Unto Infinity Board" who has cut his hair and is no longer a Sikh.
(Is it any wonder that Kartar and Peraim, Controlling members of Yogi Bhajan's "Unto Infinity Board",are wearing circus masks in the above photo?)

See these articles in today's Eugene Register Guard which shows the greed surrounding this dispute:

"Money trail at heart of Sikhs’ legal battle."

Wha Guru being used sacriligiously for huge profits by 3HO Sikhs

"What did the magician say to the Wha Guru Chew? Open sesame."


Yogi Bhajan used the sacred name of the Golden Temple, names and images of the Sikh Gurus, and sacred Sikh shabads for commercial enterprises to make millions of dollars. Wha Guru is even used as the name of a candy bar by Golden Temple Foods!Links appearing on the internet advertise Golden Temple along with wine and alcohol such as in this Google search link: "Golden Temple Granola - Food & Wine - Compare Prices" Other internet links associate Golden Temple massage oil with sex and sensual massages as in this Google search: "Sensual Soothing... Golden Temple Soothing Touch Massage Oil."

See for yourself the pictures below of the Darbar Sahib(Golden Temple) in Amritsar and Guru Tegh Bahadar featured on yogi tea boxes:

3HO Sikhs are associating yogis, ashrams, tantric sex yoga rituals,drinking of wine and magicians of the occult with the Sikh Gurus and the Golden Temple See the Rare Photo (above) featuring the Harimandir sahib in 1908 when it was under the control of the Pundits or mahants. Sadhus and yogis felt free to sit wearing only a dhoti and no head coverings.The Gurdwara Reform Movement stopped such practices in India and gave the Gurdwaras back to Gursikhs.

Tantric Asanas taught by Yogi Bhajan for transmuting sexual energy:Reprinted from Yogi Bhajan’s official magazine “Beads of Truth” 11, p. 39

Yogi Bhajan illustrated here controlling tantric shakti "energy". Notice the depiction of Shiva,above Yogi Bhajan's head, Shiva is the god of yoga for Hindus. The illustration also shows Kundalini Yoga Asanas taught by Yogi Bhajan for transmuting sexual energy

Yogi Bhajan's students are intstructed to meditate on Yogi Bhajan's picture everyday which you can see displayed in the 3HO Espanola Gurdwara in the photo above.

Idolatry is forbidden in sikhism....why does an 8-foot high statue of the Hindu god Ganesh, adorn the entranceway to the Siri Singh Sahib (yogi bhajan) lane in espanola. This is the hindu god of "prosperity", as in the 3HO publication "prosperity pathways".Adi Shakti Chandi 3HO Tantric Deity worshipped by 3HO in songs and prayers(shown above). Read about Yogi Bhajan's Shaktiman and Shakti women.

Read these shocking fire pujas and occult numerology,(below), practiced and advertised in the latest newsletter published by 3HO Sikhs. These "kriyas" or pujas are complete rubbish,only adding to the destruction and dissolution of the Sikh faith and should not be practiced by Sikhs of the Guru. The object of these practices is to combine the Sikh faith with Hinduism; to defang, neuter and completely destroy Sikhi. The strategy is to introduce idolatry and a stratified priesthood into the Sikh Religion. Yogi Bhajan and his 3HO shakti cult followers are introducing idolatry and Hindu practices of pujas and tantra mantra into the Sikh religion. The Bhajan movement is attempting to shift Sikh worship from the commonwealth of Gurdwaras to private estates controlled by 3HO priests of Yogi Bhajan's Tantric sex cult church.

Idolatry is forbidden in Sikhism....why does a golden statue of a yogi adorn the entranceway to the 3HO Gurdwara in Espanola. This is a Hindu practise.
3-HO Sikhs demonstrate(in the photo above)their complete subservience to false worldly material power by exhibiting the Flag of God (The Nishaan Sahib) at an even level with the flag of the United States in front of the 3HO Gurdwara in New Mexico. The Nishaan Sahib, (The Respected Mark of God under the shadow of the Sikh Broadsword) should always fly higher than the flag of all the false materialists. The Flag of the Khalsa should occupy a place of exaltation above any government's flag that temporarily inhabits the material world.

Tantric Yoga asanas (above) taught by Yogi Bhajan
and practised in 3HO Gurdwaras

"Tantric doctrines involving sex-poses or physical contact poses are extremely repulsive to Sikhism. The Sikh Gurus repeatedly ask the Sikhs to shun Tantric practices because they are based on a mentally perverted outlook of life. The Sikh Gurus ask the Sikhs to shun the very presence and association of Shakti-Cult Tantrics." Dr. Trilochan Singh "Sikhism and Tantric Yoga"

Tantric Asana taught by Yogi Bhajan for transmuting sexual energy:Reprinted from Yogi Bhajan’s official magazine “Beads of Truth” 11, p. 39

See how Hindu gods and yogis are displayed in 3HO Gurdwaras, (see link in blue).

See this post which exposes the most shocking relationship Yogi Bhajan had with Jagjit Naamdhari who is considered by his disciples as the 11th Sikh Guru. The Naamdhari Sikhs keep the Siri Guru Granth in a closet while they bow to Jagjit and refer to him as "SatGuru Ji" as you can see in the photos at this link.

Read these comments by traditional Sikhs. "What better way to make money: add a religious tone to the product. All of a sudden, it seems legit."

If you want to stop these degrading and sacriligious practices by Golden Temple Foods and Yogi Bhajan's cult followers; Post a letter of support on this website or write your local food stores and demand they stop selling Golden Temple Food's products. Some of the major stores which carry these products are Trader Joes, Whole Foods Market and Wild Oats but there are many many other stores who sell millions of dollars in Golden Temple Granola, Peace Cereal, Yogi Teas, massage oil and Wha Guru Chews.

Yogi Bhajan's sacrilegious teachings in the name of Sikhism are illustrated quite distinctly by pictures of Yogi Bhajan's portrait, hindu idols being displayed in and around 3-HO Gurdwaras and the practice of kundalini and sex energizing tantric yoga asanas inside 3-HO Gudwaras by Yogi Bhajan's students.

Idolatry is forbidden in Sikhism. Why does an eight foot high image (above) of Yogi Bhajan controlling the tantric shakti "energy" adorn the 3HO Gurdwara in Espanola? You can see the menacing image of Yogi Bhajan overshadowing the Sangat on the right side of the entire Espanola Gurdwara in the photo above.

Idolatry is forbidden in sikhism....why does a golden statue of a yogi adorn the entranceway to the 3HO Gurdwara in espanola. This is a hindu practise.



Yogi Bhajan's students are intstructed to meditate on Yogi Bhajan's picture everyday which you can see displayed in the 3HO Espanola Gurdwara in these photos.
In a painting at the New Mexico 3HO Gurdwara(above)you can see the sacrilegious misrepresentation of our sacred Khalsa symbol "Khanda" with two swords around it. You may also observe in this painting how Yogi Bhajan is depicted on an equal level with Guru Ram Daas(the 4th Sikh Guru): Dr. Trilochan Singh recounts this observation in 1977 when he writes, "The other picture was the Khalsa symbol Khanda with two swords around it. The Khanda (double-edged sword) within this symbol was replaced by a picture of an American woman with Sari-like robes. The woman is called Adi Shakti. I saw this published in the Beads of Truth in London and have already commented on it in my book, The Turban and the Sword of the Sikhs. I told Shakti Parwha that this is the most sacrilegious misrepresentation of our sacred symbol. As usual she dismissed my opinion as unimportant."

The sikh code of conduct says food offerings to the GURU are forbidden, but there is a 'testimony' page over at, a 3HO run site loaded with volumes of Yogi Bhajan nonsense talks. Yogi Bhajan instructs 3Hoer's to prepare meals as offerings at the gurdwara and calls this "a dish for a wish". This is nothing more than the Hindu practice of puja. The testimony states "a dish for a wish".

"Sikhism and Tantric Yoga"
by Dr. Trilochan Singh (Link to entire book)

"Yogi Bhajan is using the sacred Sikh mantras and the sacred name of Guru Ram Das as a mantle for his Tantric Sex Yoga which will inevitably lead to mental and physical debauchery of those who take his brand of Sikhism contaminated by crazy sex-energizing asanas seriously."

Yogi Bhajan studied and taught at the Sivananda Ashram in Delhi. This, in addition to his first Kundalini Yoga teacher Sant Hazara Singh. In the mid-1960s, Harbhajan Singh took up a position as instructor at the Vishwayatan Ashram in New Delhi, under Dhirendra Brahmachari. This yoga centre was frequented by the Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, his daughter, Indira Gandhi, and diplomats and employees from a host of foreign embassies.

Here's an article on Sivananda's approach to Kundalini Yoga:

These are all Hindu practices.

You can also read about the Gurdwara Reform Movement which stopped such practices in India and gave the Gurdwaras back to Gursikhs.


Gurdwara Reform Movement

A Rare Photo of Harimandir sahib in 1908 when it was under the control of the Pundits or mahants. Sadhus felt free to sit in meditation wearing only a dhoti.The Gurdwara Reform Movement (Gurdwara Sudhar Lehr) is the Legislation passed by the Punjab Legislative Council which marked the culmination of the struggle of the Sikh people from 1920-1925 to wrest control of their places of worship from the mahants or priests into whose hands they had passed during the eighteenth century when the Khalsa were driven from their homes to seek safety in remote hills and deserts.

When they later established their sway in Punjab, the Sikhs rebuilt their shrines endowing them with large jagirs and estates. The management, however, remained with the priests, belonging mainly to the Udasi sect, who, after the advent of the British in 1849, began to consider the shrines and lands attached to them as their personal properties and to appropriating the income accruing from them to their private use. Some of them alienated or sold Gurudwara properties at will. They had introduced ceremonies which were anathema to orthodox Sikhs. Besides, there were complaints of immorality and even criminal behavior lodged against the worst of them. All these factors gave rise to what is known as the Gurudwara Reform movement during which the Sikhs peaceful protests were met with violence and death and ended with them courting arrest on a large scale to gain the world's attention. Before it was all over many would fall as martyrs with some being literally blown apart while they were strapped to cannaon barrels.

‘During the Gurdwara Reform Movement, the Sikh leaders started a publication that was named Akali. From this paper and its policy the leaders began to be called Akalis, in view of which they formed the present Akali party. These Nihang Akalis should not be confused with the members of the Akali party.’ The Turban And The Sword’' , by Dr. Trilochan Singh. (Page 402)

I found this post at It exposes the most shocking relationship Yogi Bhajan had with Jagjit Naamdhari who is considered by his disciples as the 11th Sikh Guru. The Naamdhari Sikhs keep the Siri Guru Granth in a closet while they bow to Jagjit and refer to him as "SatGuru Ji" as you can see in the photos below.

The 'Namdhari' cult has been excommunicated from the Khalsa Panth. See for yourself the pictures of Yogi Bhajan depicting his close relationship with Jagjit Naamdhari.

"However their are several instances which I find questionable about Yogi Bhajan. One includes the relationship they had with Jagjit Naamdhari (, and the other about an occurance that occured in the late 70's between Yogi and AKJ, where Yogi criticized Jatha for trying to "steal" members."

Yogi Bhajan wore huge gemstones for their so called “yogic energy and power". Yogi Bhajan adorned himself with these yogic rings and precious gems for different days of the week. Yogi Bhajan covered up the fact that these days are represented by different Hindu deities and the practice of wearing these yogic rings is really only the Hindu idea of pacifying the various gods and goddesses. Not only this, Yogi Bhajan used astrology and numerology in choosing these yogic rings. Yogi Bhajan believed the gemstones had "energy affects" and influenced our destiny, thinking and actions.
Yogi Bhajan shown here on Sikhnet wearing a yogic ring for power

Around the year 2000, Yogi Bhajan tried to personally sell me a yogic ring for several thousand dollars. We were at Hari Jiwan Singh's house in Espanola where HJ keeps a vast collection of gems worth millions of dollars. Yogi Bhajan told me. "You're naked." And he stated I needed a ring with a particular stone to protect me.

Yogi Bhajan’s wearing and promoting yogic rings is yet another Hindu practice camouflaged in the sheep’s clothing of "Aquarian or New Age spiritual thinking”. These things should not be practiced by Sikhs of the Guru. As Sikhs we should rely on the Guru alone for strength as Guru Arjan so beautifully states:

I have learnt the technique of true Yoga from the divine Guru. The True Guru has revealed this technique with the Light of the divine Word. Within my body He has revealed the Light that pervades all the regions of the earth. To this Light within me I bow and salute every moment. The initiation of the Guru are my Yogic rings and I fix my mind steadfastly on the One Absolute God.i,

A. G. Guru Arjan, Gaudi, p 208

The following is taken from "Sikhism and Tantric Yoga" by Dr. Trilochan Singh.

We quote Yogi Bhajan on Precious Stones and rings, which for him are his status symbol, and for possessing which he expends quite a lot of his energy and ingenuity. He says in Beads, Summer 1972, "Precious stones are not precious because the rich wear them and the poor do not. Rather, they are precious because when cut in the proper way they concentrate sun energy and can transmit to the individual through the skin. Hence most rings are worn on the ring finger. The quality of energy channeled by each stone differs and so does its effect on the individual. Stones also correspond to the planets and serve in mediating the scattered energy which comes from retrograding planets."
Yogi Bhajan has given the following comments on stones.
Ruby (Sun) concentrates the heart of the sun's rays.
Moonstone and Pearls (Moon) help balance out too much sun energy. They are commonly worn by Libra.
Diamond (Venus and practically everything) can concentrate miles of sun rays into one beam. Recently in Los Angeles someone was robbed of 100,000 worth of jewel within 72 hours.
Emerald (Mercury) has wonderful effect on the brain and is a cooling stone. Good luck for everyone.
Coral (Mars) is for balancing positive and negative forces.
Topaz (Jupiter) is a good luck stone.
Blue Sapphire (Saturn) can give so much energy to a person that he becomes negative. Those who are interested in details can read the Journal Beads, Summer 1972, p. 16. I do not know what is the opinion of the Jewelers on these statements but from the point of Sikhism these notions are worthless absurdities.
Yogi Bhajan does not wear the earrings of the Nath Panthi Yogis, but he wears precious gold rings (sometimes two and sometimes three) heavily studded with jewels, and cannot help displaying them ostentatiously, probably as a symbol of wealth acquired through the techniques of Tantric Yoga, which he sacrilegiously identifies with the techniques of Sikh mysticism. Bhai Gurdas, however, makes it clear to all Sikhs of all ages that Yoga asanas and yoga techniques are absolutely useless and unnecessary for Sikh meditations and the spiritual path of Sikhism:
jog jugat gursikh gurs am jhay a
The Guru has himself explained to the Sikhs the technique of true Yoga, and it is this: A Sikh must live in such a moral and spiritual poise that while hoping and waiting he ceases to aspire or crave for low ambitions and remains unconcerned and detached. He should eat little and drink little. He should speak little and never waste time in nonsensical discussion. He should sleep little at night and keep away from the snare of wealth. He should never crave avariciously after wealth and property.
Bhai Gurdas, Var 20 / 15

We still have very eminent scholars and saints who practice and live according to the Essentials of the Sikh Path with utter humility and devotion. They do not wear long robes. They do not wear gold and diamond rings. They do not contaminate Sikh doctrines and practices with practices of creeds and cults which are repulsive to Sikhism and strictly prohibited. There are piles and piles of correct interpretations of the Sacred Writings of the Sikhs written first by the great contemporaries of the Gurus like Bhai Gurdas, Bhai Mani Singh, Bhai Nand Lai, and our own contemporaries like Bhai Sahib Randhir Singh and Bhai Vir Singh. They not only interpreted it but lived it and suffered for it like living martyrs, never seeking anything but the Grace of God and the Gurus as a reward.
See an excerpt from a meditation taught by Yogi Bhajan listed on one of his student's websites promoting yogic gems at "".

"Each finger represents a planet, whose energies we imbue with grace within ourselves and through our projection:

The little finger is Mercury, enhancing communication.

The ring finger represents the sun, empowering our physical bodies with healing and grace of motion.

The middle finger stands for Saturn. We strengthen virtues of patience and self-discipline.

The index finger is for Jupiter. We enshrine the light of wisdom within us.

The thumb represents the earth, ego, “dragons head and dragons tail.” We bring grace to the ego, so it supports our spirit.

I brought this realization of grace through the beautiful Light that had descended with me, wherein I experienced each finger’s cosmic connection—to the planet Mercury, the shining Sun, ringed Saturn, luminous Jupiter, and lastly, Earth—wherein dragons symbolize the spiraling DNA of creation, all these energies equally a part of my soul."

Yogi’s legacy in question |
Former followers say he abused his position for power, money and sex

A slow, painful awakening led Premka Kaur Khalsa, a top secretary in Yogi Bhajan’s Sikh organization for almost 20 years, to leave the religious group in 1984, she said.

Premka Khalsa, 66, said she could no longer participate because of the inconsistencies she said she had witnessed between the yogi’s behavior and his teachings — the deception and abuse of power.

In 1986, she sued Yogi Bhajan and his Sikh organizations, settling out of court. In court papers, she alleged that the married yogi had sexually and physically assaulted her, that he was sexually involved with other secretaries and that, as the head of his administration, she worked long hours for little or no pay.

The organization’s religious leaders vehemently deny those allegations. Its business leaders did not respond to requests for comment for this story.

Kamalla Rose Kaur, 55, another former member of Yogi Bhajan’s 3HO (Healthy, Happy, Holy Organization) who wrote for a grass-roots newsletter in the community, said a light switched on for her when she was researching and writing about religious groups and thought, “Hey, we’re acting a lot like a cult.”

Former member Guru Bir Singh Khalsa, 60, who had been appointed a “lifetime minister” by Yogi Bhajan, said he received a wake-up call in the early 1990s, when Sue Stryker, then an investigator with the Monterey County District Attorney’s office, laid out evidence linking members of his spiritual community to criminal activity. Stryker, now retired, said a member of Yogi Bhajan’s Sikh community pleaded guilty and served time in prison for a telemarketing scam that bilked seniors out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

These and other ex-members of Yogi Bhajan’s organization say they aren’t surprised by events unfolding now, six years after his death. Legal disputes threaten to splinter the community. Allegations of the yogi’s past wrongdoing are resurfacing. And the future of the Sikh organization’s businesses are in question.

The outcome will ripple far beyond the religious group, whose companies have become intertwined with the local economy and business community.

In Multnomah County Circuit Court, the group’s religious leaders are suing the group’s business leaders over control of the community’s multimillion dollar businesses, including Golden Temple natural foods in Eugene and Akal Security in New Mexico.

“Organizations/cults that have charismatic leaders and their followings, once their charismatic leader dies, this is generally the kind of thing that occurs,” Premka Khalsa said.

“It’s the meltdown of a cult,” said Kamalla Kaur, who spent nearly 20 years in 3HO, and now runs an Internet forum for ex-members. “They actually kept it together longer than we expected.”

Steven Hassan, a Massachusetts-based author, counselor and former leader of the Moon cult in the 1970s, said he has counseled about two dozen former 3HO members, including leaders, over the years.

“The group, from my point of view, was always about power and money,” he said. “(Yogi) Bhajan is the consummate … cult leader. By not specifying someone to take over, there often are these kinds of political battles and meltdowns — people basically being greedy like Yogi Bhajan was and wanting more of a slice for themselves.”

Attorney John McGrory, who represents the religious leaders in the Multnomah case, said his clients strongly disagree with the description of their organization as a cult. They “believe very strongly that it’s a religion,” he said. “They practice and follow it, and they are ministers.” The proof, he said, is in the thousands of adherents who still practice it.

McGrory said the real source of the discord in the community appears to be that the assets Yogi Bhajan built up over the years are being taken for private use, with the blessing of the managers the yogi appointed to safeguard them.

Gary Roberts, attorney for the business leaders, has said they’ve done nothing wrong and have acted in the interests of the Sikh community.

When a founder of an organization, or the head of a family, passes away, disputes among successors are common, said Krishna Singh Khalsa, a Eugene Sikh for 40 years.

“There’s nothing spiritual or charismatic or cultlike about that,” he said. “It’s simply where interests clash.”

Religious leaders voice concerns

A year before he died, Yogi Bhajan established the “Unto Infinity” board to oversee the network of businesses, property and educational and spiritual nonprofits. Members include Golden Temple CEO Kartar Singh Khalsa and three of the yogi’s former secretaries: Sopurkh Kaur Khalsa, Siri Karm Kaur Khalsa, and Peraim Kaur Khalsa. Kartar Khalsa and Peraim Khalsa are domestic partners.

In the years leading up to the Multnomah lawsuit, the group’s religious leaders expressed concern that the business leaders, the Unto Infinity members, had abandoned the group’s orthodox beliefs, which include not cutting one’s hair, eating a vegetarian diet and abstaining from alcohol.

In court documents, the religious leaders allege that the Unto Infinity members acknowledged in 2008 that they no longer practiced those core beliefs.

Unto Infinity members did not respond to Register-Guard interview requests. But in March 2009, when the Khalsa Council, an international group of Sikh ministers, asked them whether they had cut their hair, were no longer vegetarians, and drank alcohol, the business leaders responded by letter, according to the Khalsa Council.

The letter said, among other things: “The questions raised are irrelevant to our roles and responsibilities in the organization. We are not the religious leaders of the organization; we were given administrative and financial authority and responsibility.”

The Unto Infinity members wrote that they had made many sacrifices while the yogi was alive and that now they’re applying “more kindness into our personal lives.”

“We have learned the importance of factoring back into our lives more joy and balance as we continue to serve this mission for the rest of our way home,” they wrote.

The Unto Infinity members wrote that if the religious authorities decided to narrowly define what a Sikh Dharma minister is, “we may not continue to qualify.”

However, they noted, “many current ministers in Sikh Dharma have broken their Sikh or minister vows, marital vows, and the laws of our country and have remained ministers,” adding that that had been true even while Yogi Bhajan was alive.

Watching the business leaders back away from the group’s religious practices, some former members said, reminds them of what they experienced when they decided to leave the group.

“You go through stages of discovery of how you gave away your power and were deceived,” Premka Khalsa said.

“Once the person who is defining your reality — the charismatic leader — once he’s not there continuing to enforce the beliefs, then your eyes start to open,” she said. “You see things in a different way, and it can be disillusioning.”

Premka Khalsa said that’s especially true for the yogi’s secretaries, such as herself, who sacrificed much of their lives to serve him.

“I met him at 25,” she said. “I was 41 by the time I left, so my life of family, child bearing and (being) productive in the world, that whole piece was gone. Nothing was put into Social Security, and I walked out with the clothes on my back.”

The women in his inner circle “were denied having a personal relationship with any other men,” she added. “Some of us wanted to get married and have children, but we got sidetracked into agreeing to forego that with the intention of serving something bigger than us. Sacrifice, sacrifice, sacrifice.”

Flaws noted by former members

The group’s publications and Web sites praise Yogi Bhajan as an advocate for world peace and as a spiritual teacher who has helped improve the lives o
