"Sikhism and Tantric Yoga"

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 and he has now even named shoe stores as Golden Temple Shoe Store. Then you have Golden Temple Cookies. (See Fig. 9) And when I was taken to a Golden Temple Restaurant I was given "Wah Guru Chew." The shoes which the young ladies wished to present me did not fit my feet."

"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

Below there are comments from the blog at:http://www.sikhchic.com/cuisine/sikhamerican_food_enterprise_expands_further

Use of pictures of Gurus (even though they are imaginary) and the Khanda for commercial products is not a good idea. Yogi tea is clearly using the picture of the Golden Temple and Guru Tegh Bahadar. If you remember, a similar picture was used in the Golf Digest; they probably got the idea from these tea pictures.

Agreed, it is actually quite disrespectful to do so. These boxes are often thrown away into the garbage. Although idol and picture worship is wrong, depictions of our Gurus should only be in paintings on walls for us to admire and fill our imaginations, but not to worship.

3.they have a some nut-mixture called:

Wha Guru Chew


OK, so maybe not exactly 'infringing' upon Sikhi, but it's close enough!!!

One wonders if any percentage of the profits go to help the Sikh widows and orphans of 1984! If not, then this is one more exploitation of Sikhi by the 3HO, all in the name of Maya, disguised in a Sikhi image. And they should be made to realize that.

5.http://www.whaguruchew.com/History.htm

read the history that how they gave it name wah guru

its not right to give any candy or chew this name.
we shud do sumting
can we do sumthing?

6.think abt the wrapper they threw in bin on which wahguru is written

7. What better way to make money: add a religious tone to the product. All of a sudden, it seems legit.

if you are Guru the sikh and do the right thing help those of needy in panjab
sikh who have lost everthing in the 1984 help them not to help the badal gov
why are we doing wrong things is becouse u have no respect for the Guruskhi.
