Please read an Excerpt below taken from

"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."

Update Regarding Lawsuit, October 2, 2009
October 2, 2009

Dear Members of the International Khalsa Council,

It is apparent that there is a lot of misunderstanding, as well as misinformation, about the lawsuit involving Bibiji. On behalf of the Sikh Dharma International Board of Directors (SDI), as Chancellor, I am writing to provide you an update as to the status and details of the Trust v. Bibiji Lawsuit. This letter also includes information that was not provided to you in the email from the Sikh Dharma Stewardship dated September 17, 2009 (SDS Packet) which was sent to some of the Khalsa Council members via US Mail prior to the Khalsa Council meetings and then to the Khalsa Council e-group late on September 28, 2009. In order to more fully inform the Khalsa Council, here is a brief history of the legal proceedings and the SDI Board's due diligence in fulfilling its fiduciary duties to SDI in relation to a subpoena issued by Bibiji to SDI.

In looking at these materials, we must remember that while we relate to the Siri Singh Sahib as our spiritual teacher, he was Bibiji's husband. As a couple, they had legal and fiduciary duties to each other. The lawsuit is a personal matter between Bibiji and her late husband's estate and trust and we must look at these events from the perspective of a wife asking for information about what occurred when her husband handled their finances and what happened with their finances shortly before and after he passed.

During his life, the Siri Singh Sahib and Bibiji established a Living Trust Agreement ("Living Trust") which set out what would happen to their individual interests in their community property (their jointly owned assets) at their deaths. Under community property law, each spouse owns one-half of each item of property created and each dollar earned during the marriage regardless of whose name is on the property. The Living Trust Agreement (through various amendments made in February, March, and July, 2004) provided that at the Siri Singh Sahib's death, Bibiji's 50% share of all their community property would be held in a separate trust for her ("Survivor's Trust") and that most of the Siri Singh Sahib's 50% share of their community property would be distributed to a limited liability company (LLC) for the benefit of fifteen (15) members of his staff, called the Staff Endowment LLC ("Staff Trust").

A November 5, 2004 Memorandum from the Living Trust's attorney to Bibiji and her children which identifies the Living Trust assets and their disposition was filed in the Trust v. Bibiji Lawsuit. Attachment 1. One of the main assets of the Living Trust was the royalty income from Golden Temple for use of the Siri Singh Sahib's image and quotes on its products. This income was expected to continue for 75 years, but reportedly has been discontinued due to Golden Temple's removal of the Siri Singh Sahib's image and quotes from its products.
