I have written before how I think Yogi Bhajan and Hari Jiwan encouraged me in the un-Sikh like activity of gambling. I worked with Hari Jiwan for over 30 years beginning with his toner boiler phone rooms in LA around 1980 which all had a gambling mentality. Yogi Bhajan and Hari Jiwan always thought they were smarter than others but the reality is they were just degenerate gamblers! Yogi Bhajan encouraged innocent students like myself in the un-Sikh like activity of outright Casino gambling and the gambling mentality of trying to cut corners for a fast buck in the business world; well here it is from the "horse’s mouth" that Yogi Bhajan's right-hand man Hari Jiwan gambled at Casinos.,(Hari Jiwan's entire letter is in the 7th paragraph below.)

Read what other former Yogi Bhajan followers have to say about Hari Jiwan's gambling habit at the Wacko World of Yogi Bhajan: http://forums.delphiforums.com/Kamallarose/messages?msg=1704.1

BhajBuster says: Hari Jiwan was delaying Bhajan's casino breakfast when this epiphany occurred. ....why was Bhajan's retinue sweeping through the MGM Grand in the first place?"

"This Viva Las Vegas moment was taking place in May of 1995. This was during Hari Jiwan Singh's Sweet Song investment fraud days. The gambling money HJS was betting with was generated from illegal activities. The toner rooms and other scams fueled these elaborate expeditions. Gamblers love to refer to betting with the other people's (the house) money. It's what always gets them in trouble. It's like being in a cult -- it's hard to see when it's past time to walk away."
bhajbuster says:
"There are others here who know the clinical relationship between addiction and personality disorder far better than bhajb., Gursant. Having observed some interplay between inner circle bhajanites and betting, however, would you agree that the gambling and the narcissism were mutually reinforcing? The risk-taking dimension absolutely continues to this day, either as a bad bet (continued betting on a dead horse) or as an inability to acknowledge that the game is over."

Gursant Singh says: Yes, true gamblers always think they're somehow smarter than others and they can beat the odds by some sheer miracle of their own innate luck without working for it. Hari Jiwan didn't even want to learn how to correctly and legally become an "advantage player" when I approached him about educating himself on card counting at BJ, setting dice at craps or learning about binomial distributions for proper money management. I guess HJ figured he was just blessed by the "master" through some mystical power to succeed at gambling and all his other failed businesses for that matter.

Boojumwala says: A while back there was a post about YB(Yogi Bhajan) going to the racetrack in Santa Fe (Horse racing track where betting is allowed called "The Downs", pictured below) and also about a gambling controversy at Khalsa Coucil meetings. Maybe Kamalla could dig them up and repost.

StillaSikh says: This is pretty common knowledge, but for years there was a regular poker game for fairly high stakes in YB's (Yogi Bhajan's) house at the ranch. I don't know if YB played in it or not.

Gursant Singh says: Hari Jiwan may have stopped gambling now which I applaud him for but his abstinence from the craps’ tables which he claims has been 15 years could not have possibly stopped before 2003 because I was the apprentice "shooter" under HJ’s tutelage at the Big Rock casino with HJ placing bets, only 11 years ago. At that gambling outing in 2003, I witnessed Hari Jiwan drop $900.00 at Big Rock Casino in a matter of minutes at both craps and Black Jack. Hari Jiwan would take Jerry (YB's favorite Beverly Hills jewelry dealer. YB & HJ shown in the photo above in Jerry's store on Beverly Drive.) to Big Rock Casino on Jerry's trips to Espanola during this time period also. In fact, Hari Jiwan's gambling mentality continues to this day with his sales of tantric necklaces which Hari Jiwan claims is an easy way to reap the most spiritual benefit with the least amount of effort by wearing these woo woo beads which are blessed by the "Master" Yogi Bhajan.

In fact, Hari Jiwan's poor performance at the tables inspired me to study how to gamble for a profit and for a while I became somewhat of a professional gambler counting cards at BJ, setting dice at craps and sports handicapping. I have stopped these un-Sikh like activities since it is written in the Sikh Reht that a Sikh should not gamble. Yogi Bhajan never told me or anyone about the Sikh Reht and I believe that if YB would have pointed out the Sikh Reht to me, I would have obeyed its commands and saved allot of time and energy.

This letter from Hari jiwan on gambling may be an insight into Yogi Bhajan's highly flawed operating philosophy of letting people induldge themselves in a destructive behavior in order to cure them of the desire for it. Tantrics in India, I have heard, engage in this type of teaching towards sex desires. Personally, I think I would have responded much better if it was simply pointed out to me that Gambling is against the Sikh code of conduct and that would have been the end of my desire to gamble period.

Yogi Bhajan, Lickin' Addiction

Sat Nam Dear Family,

Las Vegas was always fun. We’d been there several times, but this time there must have been fifteen of us. It was May of 1995 and we were an unusually large contingent. The Siri Singh Sahib wasn’t feeling that well, but he pushed through like always. He was the ultimate pusher. I was lucky. Many students felt like he pushed them too hard, and for some he did. But, I saw how hard he pushed himself so I never had any self pity about his methods. He was truly incredible in his determination – push, push, push. I needed all the help I could get to just keep up with him. Yoga and Sikh Dharma were essentials in providing the means to keep up. I couldn’t have done it without these assets.

Las Vegas was hard on him. Well, who isn’t it hard on. The smoke, the casino sounds, and the vibration grated on him. Each time we would walk through the casino to the elevators (that’s purposefully, by the way), I would notice him react, so I knew how noxious the environment was to him. Nevertheless he was showing us that the world must be conquered, not avoided. He paid the price for this lesson. Yes, Las Vegas was hard on him.

There was another side to this uncomfortable coin. The shows were a gas (remember, I’m from the 1950’s). The food was marvelous. The pool area was supreme. The golf courses were like emerald velvet spread across the desert. The entertainment factor was off the charts. The excitement component was on overload. Yes, I admit it, I liked Vegas. I’m sure that’s why we came. Our Teacher is the Mahan Tantric Master and often gave me more than I thought I deserved. It was always an off the chart experience. Remember, as white Tantrics, we go through the world, not around it. Just being around him ratcheted up my “expectation factor,” and many times I didn’t even know when it was happening. It’s only when this awareness catches up with this experience that life takes on this perpetual prosperity consciousness.

Our Master brought along almost all of his staff to Vegas. It was his way of showing them the other side of life without them being touched by it… enjoying its good and fun benefits, and leaving the unsavory ones alone. As we know, Vegas has it all. He was our safety net. Whatever he wanted to do, we were allowed to do with him. Nevertheless, I took liberties. I gambled. He allowed me this latitude. I am a good gambler. I’ve studied it. I know what to do and how to do it so the odds move in my favor. That’s not to say that they ever are in my favor totally, the house does have an advantage. But, I know how to cut them to the minimum. Craps is my game of choice and I know how to play so that the odds against me are less than one percent. With this strategy, all I have to be is lucky and not outrageously lucky to win. That’s always been my gambling strategy and, I might add, my strategy in life as well. So, with this strategy, I should never be in a position of losing more than I could afford. And, who knows, I might get really lucky. It’s happened before. After all, I’ve won the lottery of life finding our Teacher.

The ladies really enjoyed themselves. This always made the Master happy. Most gravitated to the pool area during the day. I’m not a pool person, so I didn’t see much of them until the evening. But, they all seemed more happy and relaxed than usual.

We arrived on a Friday evening. The next day the Master didn’t even appear from his room until dinner time. I knew that he really wasn’t feeling well. There was so much to do that most didn’t take to heart his absence with the attention it deserved. He reappeared at 7:00 P.M. almost as if nothing had happened. But, I knew something had. He was pushing again, pushing harder.

I had spent more time at the crap table than usual. Our Master’s disappearance made it easier. Sunday morning I was packed and ready to go. I was way up in betting and wanted to play more craps with “house money.”Now I could gamble with free money. Off to the crap tables I went. I was doing well again when I noticed a covey of white descending down the walkway in my direction. It was the Master and his retinue walking to breakfast. I had no fear; after all he allowed me this discretion (or indiscretion as the case may be). Our Master looked at me and said, “Have you had enough?” He said it with such compassion that I knew I still had a choice. “I don’t think so,” I remember thinking to myself. I’m winning and that’s fun.

Thank God I wasn’t finished and because I wasn’t, at least for another year or so. I was forced to think of his words often. I’ve given a lot of energy to understanding what he was saying. At first I thought he was talking about gambling. I soon understood that gambling was just a metaphor.

There were many “gamblings” in my life. And, there were still many others I wasn’t even aware of at the time. There always will be more. On a spiritual path, the more “gambling” you get rid of, the more aware you become of more subtle ones. The Master said it in a way that understanding what he meant could truly be known only through a subtler way of thinking. If I wanted to truly understand what our Master was saying, I’d have to become more by giving up more “gambling.” It’s up to me to restrict myself. He didn’t teach me by restricting my environment. I must be the cause. So, he challenged me to understand him. This understanding has gone through many incarnations. “Have you had enough?” It’s rung in my ears ever since. “Had enough of what,” I would say to myself? Every time I would even think of gambling or even playing cards for nothing, I would hear his words “Have you had enough?”

I’ve been done gambling for a long time, over fifteen years now. Thank God I haven’t shaken the mantra, “Have you had enough.” Whenever I engage in some thinking or action which my wife would gage inappropriate (she’s my touchstone), I’m automatically reminded, “have you had enough.” The Master is not with us physically anymore, but his words to me are with me forever and so is my wife, thank God. Stay tuned,

In the Humility of Service and Gratitude,

My understanding is that not just anyone can get a Wikipedia page. I don't remember who, but I just heard some minor celebrity joking that they were turned down.

Maybe Hari Jiwan was awarded the spot on Wikipedia for being a notable "tantric mafia kingpin" who was convicted of telemarketing fraud while selling gem stones. You have to admit this sounds like a pretty unusual crime for a "tantric mafia kingpin" and might make for an interesting article on Wikipedia!

From Wikipedia guidlines for a Wikipedia biographical article

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability_(people)

1.The motivation for the crime or the execution of the crime is unusual—or has otherwise been considered noteworthy—such that it is a well-documented historic event. Generally, historic significance is indicated by sustained coverage of the event in reliable secondary sources which persists beyond contemporaneous news coverage and devotes significant attention to the individual's role.[10]

Thank you to whomever edited Yogi Bhajan's chief of protocol Hari Jiwan's Wikipedia article to include the US Federal Trade Commission charges now:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hari_Jiwan_Singh_Khalsa#Career

Khalsa has engaged in various business activities, including the Jivan Jewelry[4] and Nine Treasures,[5] a purveyor of luxury watches, in order to provide financial resources for Sikh Dharma. In connection with one enterprise, Sweet Song Corporation, Khalsa and his associates were sued by the FTC for falsely representing the value of gemstone investments, and were subsequently barred from engaging in any business related to collectibles investments.[6][/i]

In order to set the record straight on Hari Jiwan, we'll start first with the official record from the Federal Trade Commission which filed charges against Hari Jiwan. (Taken from an FTC press release) Hari Jiwan Singh Khalsa, also known as Stephen Jon Oxenhandler, a/k/a Bob Thomas; as part of "Project Field of Schemes." This law enforcement effort comprised of approximately 61 law-enforcement actions. In its complaint detailing the charges, the FTC alleged that the defendants routinely misrepresented the risk, value, appreciation and liquidity of the gemstones they sold and falsely claimed that consumers would realize tremendous profits. In addition, the defendants falsely pledged that they could and would easily liquidate consumers' gemstone portfolios after an 18-month holding period. In fact, according to the FTC, the defendants typically ceased all contact with consumers and refused to liquidate their gemstones after the 18-month period. Shortly after the complaint was filed, the court issued a temporary restraining order, froze the defendants' assets and appointed a temporary receiver over the corporate defendants.

Why does Yogi Bhajan's Chief of protocol sell tantric necklaces, promote astrology and numerology readings when it is forbidden in the Sikh Reht Maryada?

Question: What happens to you when you wear Yogi Bhajan's tantric necklace?

Answer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vxJ0BxUhTw

[image]

This Hari Jiwan video advertisement really showcases the truth about Yogi Bhajan's Chief of Protocol-- his loathing for true Sikhism, his deathless devotion to Yogi Bhajan and his extraordinary garish taste in worldy treasures.

According to the absurd tantric science of Yogi Bhajan, promoted by Bhajan's Chief of Protocol M.S.S. Hari Jiwan Singh, "to attain the healing power of the gems you must soak individual stones overnight in rainwater, add milk and then drink the liquid. This is a potent elixir and is recommended and blessed by Yogi Bhajan himself."

The Chief then indulges us into more insane medical quackery when he cautions that "the gems should be removed prior to drinking the tonic." Which raises the question -- are gems good for continued stewing or does the customer need to make an additional purchase in case it's a single use dosage?

This is the 3 minute spiel. Hari Jiwan has a 9 minute "Gems as Medicine" version but it could be toxic.

It takes Hari Jiwan six minutes to unload the pitch for the tantric necklace, which the Mahan Tantric Yogi Bhajan told him to do. Did you know the Mahan Tantric asked him to offer you the necklace? He is offering it to you "with the blessing of the Mahan Tantric" so you can experience "a piece of him."

Notice the huge tantric yogic rings and necklaces Hari Jiwan is wearing and don't miss the Yogi Bhajan life size bust above HJ's head along with the statue of Durga or adi shakti goddess at his left and Hindu god Ganesh at HJ's right. Hari Jiwan could pass as some kind of tantric yoga mafia leader if he just wore some dark sunglasses.

Shame on SikhNet for promoting this anti-Sikh propaganda of Yogi Bhajan's right hand man Hari jiwan Singh Khalsa in a recent article on SikhNet. I worked closely with Hari jiwan for 30 years while I was part of Yogi Bhajan's tantric yoga dera and I have first-hand experience with Harijiwan's extensive corrupt and even illegal activities for which the Federal Trade Commission filed charges against Hari Jiwan in June 1997.

"Have you ever wondered how Yoga and Sikh Dharma work together? Well, I did. So, I asked my Master (Yogi Bhajan)."

Read what Guru Sahib says about Yogic rings"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

Yogi Bhajan and Hari Jiwan buying and selling gem stones and jewellry at Jerry's on Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills California, a favorite spot for their business activities. In June 1997,one year after this photo was taken, the Federal Trade Commission filed charges against Hari Jiwan. (Taken from an FTC press release) Hari Jiwan Singh Khalsa, also known as Stephen Jon Oxenhandler, a/k/a Bob Thomas; as part of "Project Field of Schemes." This law enforcement effort comprised of approximately 61 law-enforcement actions. In its complaint detailing the charges, the FTC alleged that the defendants routinely misrepresented the risk, value, appreciation and liquidity of the gemstones they sold and falsely claimed that consumers would realize tremendous profits.

Shortly after the complaint was filed, the court issued a temporary restraining order, froze the defendants' assets and appointed a temporary receiver over the corporate defendants.

I went to Jerry's shop in Beverly Hills with YB and HJ almost every day as I was on YB's security. I also took Shakti Parwha Kaur to Wells Fargo bank on Wilshire Blvd in Beverly Hills about three times a week to get gems and a new set of YB's jewellery that he would adorn himself with for that particular day depending on what the astrological stars said he should wear. Shakti would say, "Let's go get the crown jewels." When Shakti and I entered the room at the bank to open the numerous safe deposit boxes full of the precious stones, I was shocked the first time I saw the outrageous amount of trays displaying these huge gemstones.
Around the year 2000, Yogi Bhajan tried to personally sell me a yogic ring for several thousand dollars. We were at Hari Jiwan'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.

"I went on a few of those shopping trips to Jerry's place in Beverly Hills. To me it seemed that Jerry and YB were running some sort of scam on those who were coerced into making purchases." http://forums.delphiforums.com/Kamallarose/messages?msg=1203.349

"YB and Jerry double-teamed people (not just the women), urging them to purchase things because they were 'beautiful' or 'good for your aura.' "

You may read all the many letters from Hari Jiwan with comments from former followers of Yogi Bhajan at: http://forums.delphiforums.com/Kamallarose/messages?msg=1203.1

Why does Yogi Bhajan's Chief of protocol Hari Jiwan Singh Khalsa sell tantric necklaces, promote astrology and numerology readings when it is forbidden in the Sikh Reht Maryada for Sikhs to practice: “Influence of stars, Magic spells, incantations, omens, auspicious times, days & occasions, , horoscopic dispositions,” Chapter X Article XVI.
http://www.gurmukhyoga.com/forum/index.php?id=441

The answer is that Yogi Bhajan approved of and used tantric necklaces and astrology. New Age'rs want to believe in Magic & an easy way to salvation. So these gimmicks make lots of money for Yogi Bhajan's cult.
http://www.gurmukhyoga.com/forum/index.php?id=441

I just saw this video by Yogi Bhajan's right-hand man Hari Jiwan Singh Khalsa in which he purports that tantric necklaces will make you successful and happy. Hari Jiwan was considered by Yogi Bhajan as his "right Hand man" and spent literally every day of his life from 1978 until Yogi Bhajan's death in 2004 with his "Tantric Master". This video and many letters from Hari Jiwan prove that Yogi Bhajan himself approved and promoted these anti Sikh tantric necklaces. "Guru Hans was the impetus behind the “Tantric Necklace.” He’s an architect by training and while looking through old architectural books, came across the ancient geometrical pattern used in this necklace since ancient times. The Siri Singh Sahib (Yogi Bhajan), who is the ‘Mahan Tantric’ (the Master of Tantric Yoga of which there is only one on the planet at a time), was so excited when this rediscovery was brought to him that he personally blessed each one, refined the process, and blessed Guru Hans Singh for his service."

Here comes the hardball sales pitch from Hari Jiwan for the anti-Sikh "individually blessed tantric necklaces by Yogi Bhajan" himself. This comes just one day after the soft sell letter I posted yesterday.
Just read the sacrilegious crap in Hari Jiwan's letter to Yogi Bhajan's "3HO family". Hari Jiwan(Sat Bachan Kaur who donated the tantric necklace above is his wife) was considered by Yogi Bhajan as his "right Hand man" and spent literally every day of his life from 1978 until Yogi Bhajan's death in 2004 with his "Mahan Tantric Master". This letter from Hari Jiwan proves that Yogi Bhajan himself approved and promoted these anti Sikh tantric necklaces. http://gurmukhyoga.com/forum/index.php?id=402

Just read this nonsense from Hari Jiwan,"Tantric Necklace has a beauty and majesty of its own"~ Hari jiwan

It's like Hari Jiwan is trying to sell "magic" necklaces with fantasy promises. There is a reason why "Magic spells" are forbidden in the Sikh code of conduct!

According to Hari Jiwan, all of a sudden the wearer is transformed:

transformed into a yogi,
transformed into a queen/king,
transformed into another dimension where confidence and hope are manifested,
transformed into the realization that our dreams are on the way,
transformed into the experience of joy,
transformed into a being who truly believes they are worth and deserve more
because of their goodness.


Tantric Necklace
Sat Nam Dear Family,

I’ll tell you something which has shocked me. People write me with deep, heartfelt appreciation for their Tantric Necklace. I’m starting to see many more benefits which I had no idea about. Let me give you an example.

As you know I’m big on “worthiness,” the art of expecting more out of life. I believe and have experienced that everything is waiting for us on this path. All we have to do is accept more. We’ve been truly blessed. There are so many alternatives to what we do that gratitude just isn’t enough to express my luck. Before it does anything else, the Tantric Necklace brings more “worthiness” to the wearer. Please remember, besides its esoteric properties, it’s truly a beautiful necklace. I’ve been blessed to have lots of experience with the best jewelry in the world and I can tell you that the Tantric Necklace has a beauty and majesty of its own. It can be worn anywhere.

Just putting the Tantric Necklace on and standing in front of a mirror is dynamic. All of a sudden the wearer is transformed: transformed into a yogi, transformed into a queen/king, transformed into another dimension where confidence and hope are manifested, transformed into the realization that our dreams are on the way, transformed into the experience of joy, transformed into a being who truly believes they are worth and deserve more because of their goodness. Who knew? I certainly didn’t. Not until I received many letters from people who expressed a love they have for the Tantric Necklace. They actually “love” this Necklace. And why not, it’s working for them. For example, I received this email as I’m writing this. “I realize that my Aquamarine and Pearl Tantric Necklace has become an indispensable teaching tool for me in my Teaching Practice. I can’t thank you enough for providing this benefit which would not otherwise be available in the Universe. And I absolutely love it. Thank you.”

When the Siri Singh Sahib said that everything we sell is blessed. At the time, I thought it was a nice gesture, but really didn’t understand the depth of his words. After all, we were in the business of sales, not service. Times have changed. Either you fight them or adjust. Guru has led me out of my sales business and into the service business. I can’t say it’s been easy, because it hasn’t. But, what I can say is that it’s been the most rewarding experience of my life. I would have never thought that offering the Tantric Necklace to the world would bring back such a rewarding experience. So, I have to tell you, I get more out of these Necklaces than anyone because every time I provide one, I’m likely to experience the gratitude the wearer shows for the love of the Necklace.

This is called business and good will. This is what the Master taught. A spiritual business must have two goals, profit and good will. It’s really the same in all facets of a true life. This is how I learned to do good business from our Teacher. If I serve these two goals, I’ve been promised and I’ll experience that my God, my Guru, and my Teacher will run to me and make me more worthy to be able to accept more of their blessings. After all, our Guru wants to be represented in the correct way, so he can’t afford to allow more of his blessings to be accepted until the student, the Sangat, the Dharma is ready. Being ready means that you’ve already proved yourself in doing your duty to the Guru’s satisfaction. But, when the student, the Sangat, the Dharma are ready and have proven their worth (worthiness), God, Guru, the Teacher start working for them, in fact, can’t wait and run to them with devotion, love, and great blessings. They can’t wait to bestow blessings on those who do their duty. All are happy with this relationship. This is real business in a real Dharma.

I’m sure there’s lots more insight and benefits to this story. I can’t wait to find out. I’ll keep everyone informed. Stay tuned

In Humility of Service and Gratitude,

MSS Hari Jiwan Singh Khalsa.

Why is SikhNet promoting Yogi Bhajan's use of tantric Yogic stones & jewelry for power?

In this You-tube video excerpt of a Yogi Bhajan lecture titled "Humbleness and Wearing Jewelry" by Gurumustuk at SikhNet, I was shocked to see how SikhNet blatantly promotes Yogi Bhajan's sacrilegious use of tantric Yogic stones & jewelry for power! I was appalled to see how Yogi Bhajan even ridicules true Singh's of the Khalsa panth who wear NO yogic rings or jewelry! Notice the huge gems Yogi Bhajan is wearing in the video. [image]
You'll notice the Singh in the painting next to Yogi Bhajan is wearing only Guru Sahib's adornments and NO yogic rings or jewelry.
[image]
The Yogi Bhajan portrait in the Sikh Museum at the Darbar Sahib (Golden Temple)A fraud like Yogi Bhajan should not be displayed here adorned with all his tantric stones & yogic jewellry especially alongside the likes of Sant Singh Maskeen jee or Bhai Jasbir Singh Khalsa aka Veer jee. These Singhs were the true Panth Rattans not Yogi Puri a cult leader!!

Why does SikhNet call Yogi Bhajan the "Siri Singh Sahib " & leader of the Sikhs in the west when Bhajan's false title has been shown to be a lie? One can clearly see the text for Yogi Bhajan's name as "Bhai Harbhajan Singh Ji Yogi"
There is no mention of the title "Siri Singh Sahib" when in other Sikh's portraits the museum shows the title given by the Khalsa panth or Shri Akaal Takhat Sahib under their name.

Yogi Bhajan wore huge gemstones for their so called “tantric yogic energy and power". Yogi Bhajan adorned himself with these tantric 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 which is strictly against the Sikh Reht. Yogi Bhajan believed the gemstones had "energy affects" and influenced our destiny, thinking and actions. As Sikhs we are supposed to rely only on the Siri Guru Granth Sahib for support and guidance.

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 "YogaGems.com".

"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."

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."

Why does Yogi Bhajan's Sikh Dharma Worldwide Organization auction tantric necklaces, astrology and numerology readings to raise funds? It is forbidden in the Sikh Reht Maryada for Sikhs to practice: “Influence of stars, Magic spells, incantations, omens, auspicious times, days & occasions, , horoscopic dispositions,” Chapter X Article XVI.

The answer is that Yogi Bhajan approved of and used tantric necklaces and astrology. New Age'rs want to believe in Magic & an easy way to salvation. So these gimmicks make lots of money for Yogi Bhajan's cult.

I just read a letter from Hari Jiwan Singh Khalsa to Yogi Bhajan's "3HO family". Hari Jiwan(Sat Bachan Kaur who donated the tantric necklace above is his wife) was considered by Yogi Bhajan as his "right Hand man" and spent literally everyday of his life from 1978 until Yogi Bhajan's death in 2004 with his "Tantric Master". This letter from Hari Jiwan proves that Yogi Bhajan himself approved and promoted these anti Sikh tantric necklaces. "Guru Hans was the impetus behind the “Tantric Necklace.” He’s an architect by training and while looking through old architectural books, came across the ancient geometrical pattern used in this necklace since ancient times. The Siri Singh Sahib (Yogi Bhajan), who is the ‘Mahan Tantric’ (the Master of Tantric Yoga of which there is only one on the planet at a time), was so excited when this rediscovery was brought to him that he personally blessed each one, refined the process, and blessed Guru Hans Singh for his service."

Sikh Dharma Worldwide says, "View all Auction items here All proceeds go to SDW Dasvandh so please bid generously. Learn what the stars have in store for you, and chart your path by the numbers with these great astrology and numerological readings."

"Mahan tantric", Yogi Bhajan and his wife Bibiji Inderjit Kaur Puri who promote a whole slew of anti-Sikh activities received Panth Rattan. Now Sikh scholars want to frame rules for the award after once again it shows to be politically driven

Panth Rattan has become a politically driven award particularly considering that previous recipients before the corrupt Prakash Singh Badal were the "Mahan tantric", Yogi Bhajan and his wife Bibiji Inderjit Kaur Puri who promote a whole slew of anti-Sikh activities.

Here's the link to the article in the Tribune of India, Punjab news
- you may have to scroll down. http://www.tribuneindia.com/2011/20111207/punjab.htm#12

After viewing these pictures of Bibiji performing Hindu pujas you'll see why she is clearly not a Gursikh & her positions of leadership in the Sikh community should be revoked! You'll notice the same Swami is leading the puja as the one at 11-11-11 shiv/shakti yoga event.
[image]
S.S. Gurubachan Singh at top left above Yogi Bhajan with orange turban. From left to right, Bibiji Inderjit Kaur Khalsa (Yogi Bhajan's wife), Bhai Sahib Satpal Singh Khalsa(Yogi Bhajan's son in law) and Kamaljit Kaur Khalsa (Yogi Bhajan's daughter) all wearing white turbans and donning the red mark of Shiva on their foreheads.

Why does Bhai Sahib Sat Pal Singh Khalsa, the Ambassador to Yogi Bhajan's Sikh Dharma, have this pic of his family with Yogi Bhajan and his wife doing Hindu puja with a swami on his website? http://bhaisahib.org/?attachment_id=440

Sikhs do not perform these Hindu rituals which are strictly forbidden by the Sikh Reht Maryada. http://gurmukhyoga.com/forum/index.php?id=344

Let's make clear that Yogi Bhajan and Bibiji are not just lighting some candles and that this is in fact a Hindu puja in the pic above. This is the way a puja works. The devotee of shiva or whatever deity you are worshiping makes an offering to the god or goddess in return for a wish being granted. In this case it appears the offering was flower petals. Usually some kind of fire is involved to burn away or cleanse karmas from the devotee making the offering, in this case a candle is being used. Then the Hindu pundit or swami blesses the devotee with a red mark of paint on the forehead (the third eye in yogic tradition) which is commonly called the eye of Shiva. You can see in the photos that all these elements are being met for a Hindu puja.
[image]
Bibiji Inderjit Kaur Khalsa, PhD, holds the distinguished position of Bhai Sahiba or Chief Religious Minister of Sikh Dharma, and she was the wife of Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji for 52 years. To Sikhs around the globe, she is a revered "mother" and honored as an ambassador of good will and a harbinger of interfaith dialogue among religious leaders. In 2006 she was named the New Mexico Ambassador of Peace by Senator Shannon Robinson. Governor Bill Richardson appointed Bibiji as his Representative to India in 2007.

In 2005, Bibiji received the honorific "Panth Rattan," from Singh Sahib Iqbal Singh of Takhat Sri Patna Sahib. In Sikhism, we honor those people with title of Panth Rattan meaning "The Jewel of the Nation," for outstanding service given to the Sikh panth. It is a title seldom granted, and then only after serious consideration. In November of 2004, Bibiji was recognized by the Akal Takat as the Bhai Sahiba of Sikh Dharma of the Western Hemisphere, a position she has held in the West since 1975.

This is no way for a Sikh leader to act!

For Bibiji & Yogi Bhajan and now their students to indulge in Hindu practices, such as having a Homa (fire puja) ceremony in front of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib, to visit astrologers – as he did on a regular basis, to give people Sikh names through numerology rather than consult SGGS – I could go on and on – is totally hypocritical. Their disciples are now following in their footsteps.
http://www.facebook.com/album.php?id=169369606419559&aid=42382
The 3HO people may do whatever Hindu practices they like; there is no law against it but they should not claim to be Khalsa or use Khalsa names, Singh and Kaur. For them to use the name Khalsa, when the overwhelming majority of them neither recites panj bani nor wear panj kaka, is hypocritical in the extreme. Of course this is really Yogi Bhajan’s fault for a really stupid decision to name all his students Singh/Kaur Khalsa, no matter what their level of commitment was to Sikhi. I believe this has deeply wounded the image of The Khalsa Panth in America.

Here is the condemnation of Idol Worship by Guru Gobind Singh Ji (extracts from various passages):

ਕਾਹੂ ਲੈ ਪਾਹਨ ਪੂਜ ਧਰਯੋ ਸਿਰ ਕਾਹੂ ਲੈ ਲਿੰਗ ਗਰੇ ਲਟਕਾਇਓ ॥
Someone worships stone and places it on his head. Someone hangs the phallus (lingam) from his neck. .(pg.42)

ਕੋਉ ਬੁਤਾਨ ਕੋ ਪੂਜਤ ਹੈ ਪਸੁ ਕੋਉ ਮ੍ਰਿਤਾਨ ਕੋ ਪੂਜਨ ਧਾਇਓ ॥
Some fools worship idols and some go to worship the dead. (pg.42)

ਪਾਇ ਪਰੋ ਪਰਮੇਸਰ ਕੇ ਜੜ ਪਾਹਨ ਮੈਂ ਪਰਮੇਸਰ ਨਾਹੀ ॥੯੯॥
O fool! Fall at the feet of Lord-God, The Lord is not within the stone-idols.99.(pg.111)

ਤੇ ਭੀ ਬਸਿ ਮਮਤਾ ਹੁਇ ਗਏ ॥ਪਰਮੇਸਰ ਪਾਹਨ ਠਹਿਰਏ ॥੧੩॥
THEY were also overpowered by ‘mineness’ and exhibited the Lord in statues. 13. .(pg.134)

ਪਾਹਨ ਪੁਜੈ ਹੈ ਏਕ ਨ ਧਿਐ ਹੈ ਮਤ ਕੇ ਅਧਕ ਅਧੇਰਾ ॥ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਕਹੁ ਤਜਿ ਹੈ ਬਿਖ ਕਹੁ ਭਜਿ ਹੈ ਸਾਝਹਿ ਕਹਹਿ ਸਵੈਰਾ ॥
Worshiping stones, they will not meditate on the One Lord; there will be the prevalence of darkness of many sects; leaving the ambrosia they will desire for poison, and they will name the evening time as early-morning; .(pg.1142) (eg hindus and christians)

ਤਾਸ ਕਿਉ ਨ ਪਛਾਨਹੀ ਜੋ ਹੋਹਿ ਹੈ ਅਬ ਹੈ ॥ਨਿਹਫਲ ਕਾਹੇ ਭਜਤ ਪਾਹਨ ਤੋਹਿ ਕਛੁ ਫਲਿ ਦੈ ॥
Why do you not pray to him, who will be there in the future and who is here in the present? You are worshipping stones uselessly; what will you gain by this worship? (pg. 1289)
ਅੱਛਤ ਧੂਪ ਦੀਪ ਅਰਪਤ ਹੈ ਪਾਹਨ ਕਛੂ ਨ ਖੈ ਹੈ ॥

Yogi Bhajan and now his 3HO sect are clearly against Sikhism. It is not as simple as saying “So what we do some yoga…” Guess what? These Hindu pujas, kundalini and tantric yoga practices are anti- Gurmat! Always were and always will be. It is not their fault that Yogi Bhajan led them astray just look at the pics above where Yogi Bhajan is clearly performing Hindu puja and allowing his family to also induldge in this ceremony. Dr. Trilochan Singh’s book which is critical of Yogi Bhajan in the light of Sikhism has even more relevance today than it did 35 years ago when it was written.

EVERY Sikh is representative of the Guru and the Khalsa Panth, especially one who is in the public eye. If they behave in a way that breaches SRM (Sikh Rehit Maryada) the whole Khalsa suffers.
"Jab lag Khalsa rahe niara. tab lag tej dio mai sara.
jab eh gahe bipran ki reet. mai na karo in ki parteet".
"So long as Khalsa retains his distinct identity, I will give him my entire radiance and strength. But if he should take on a non-Sikh way of life, then I shall have no confidence in him and withdraw my support and protection". Guru Gobind Singh Ji

It is becoming more and more obvious that 3HO (whoever that actually is) has consciously or unconsciously decided to position itself as part Sikh and part Hindu. It seems to me that they just flat out don't understand just how this will wound taditional Sikh sentiments as the Punjabis find out that Yogi Bhajan's 3HO are doing this. Maybe they just don't care.

Snatam Kaur Khalsa openly admits to performing Hindu Arti at the Parmarth Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh in a letter published by Spirit Voyage,
"To finish the ceremony Swami ji invited me to sit behind him. I found myself next to Gurmukh. She leaned over and asked with knowing eyes... “Are you ok?” I said to her “Yes.” But as she turned away and I found my eyes falling on the rushing waters of the Ganga, a voice inside screamed... “No, I am not ok! I am in pain!"
Then Snatam Kaur goes on to describe the Ganges river as a goddess when she says, "The teaching tent for the 11.11.11 course is right next to the Ganga River. It is a very deep experience to take in Her(The Ganges river) loving presence while practicing the sacred science of Kundalini yoga, chanting together, and meditating."

This is the view of the idol of Shiva and the Ganges river from where Snatam Kaur and Gurmukh Kaur are performing the Hindu Arti and Puja in the first pic above.

The Chardi Kalaa jatha was also performing at this Arti ceremony in Rishikesh as Santam Kaur goes on to say in her letter,"Swami ji arrived and sang so beautifully.The Chardi Kalaa jatha played some of the most inspirational and soul stirring Kirtan I had every heard."

Santam Kaur has also made recordings chanting Hindu mantras like Shiva OM which is also against Sikh Reht Maryada.

In this latest article published by SikhNet, SikhNet blatantly supports and promotes Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa and her anti Sikh activities!http://www.sikhnet.com/news/gurmukh-kaur-coming-edmonton

SikhNet needs to follow the Sikh Reht & stop promoting Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa who is used as a "Poster Yogi" by Parmarth Niketan Ashram. http://gurmukhyoga.com/forum/index.php?id=374

Just read this update on Gurmukh Kaur's facebook page. Please note the people who are commenting and her posts. There doesn't appear to be any Sikhs posting or anything about Sikhism but rather Gurmukh gives her chelas false hope in the Vedic "akashic records" and some "magical Aquarian Age" date of 11-11-11. I don't know why Gurmukh doesn't change her name to Shiva Dasi Devi; that would be more in keeping with her practices. http://www.facebook.com/GurmukhKaurKhalsa?sk=wall&filter=1Status

Update
By Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa
We are supposed to be in a period where all your thoughts can move all over the place into realms of what you are going towards in your destiny. After November 4, 2011, whatever you have wished for, envisioned for your destiny, what you want to achieve to fulfill your life, will be set in the akashic records for 29 years.
So take the time now to write down what it is you want to achieve, what is important for your happiness and your destiny, and project into the future for 29 years.
You can edit the list until next week on Friday.

Take the list home and put it into a holy book, or on their altar, under their prayer book, etc, to purify the wishes and visions. Rework them as you see fit.

You don't have to know all the details for your visions and wishes. Just the general concept.
Sat Nam

Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, Santam Kaur & The Chardi Kalaa jatha are an embarrassment to the Khalsa panth. Gurmukh has been photographed doing Hinduhoma fire pujas and doesn't even wear a Sikh kara. Even in the pic above which SikhNet so blatently publishes shows Gurmukh Kaur doing homage to the sun in Rishikesh on the river Ganga where you can see a Hindu temple in the backgroud of the pic. How can Sikhnet support this anti Sikh woman?
http://gurmukhyoga.com/forum/index.php?id=307

I pray Gurmukh Kaur will visit the small Gurdwara on the banks of the Ganges at Haridwar, called Gian Gothdri, which marks Guru Nanak's visit there.

When Guru Nanak saw people doing puja to the sun, as is Gurmukh Kaur in this picture, he asked what they were doing. "We are giving water to our thirsty forefathers who live on the sun", they said. So, he also waded into the river and started doing likewise but facing in the opposite direction. Everybody laughed at him and said, "Don't you even know which way the sun is?" He replied, "I've been away from my farm in the Punjab for quite some time and my fields are probably parched, so I thought I should take this opportunity to water them (in the west)". They all laughed some more and said, "Silly fool, Punjab is hundreds of miles away and this water is just falling a foot away right in front of you." Guru Nanak replied, " Oh, but I thought the sun was much further away?" A few probably understood what Guru Nanak was getting at, and stopped doing that futile nonsense, but most, like Gurmukh Kaur, carried on still blissfully ignorant.

"Jab lag Khalsa rahe niara. tab lag tej dio mai sara.
jab eh gahe bipran ki reet. mai na karo in ki parteet".
"So long as Khalsa retains his distinct identity, I will give him my entire radiance and strength. But if he should take on a non-Sikh way of life, then I shall have no confidence in him and withdraw my support and protection". Guru Gobind Singh Ji

Let us look at Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa's name, the one whom SikhNet & 3HO so blithely dismiss as "a popular Yogini". Her first name is Gurmukh. Forget the nonsensical Yogi Bhajan translation; Gurmukh is a very powerful word from Gurbani, meaning that person whose face is forever turned towards the Guru. And that means Guru Nanak and his successors, not some Hindu Swami the demigod Shiva or the Mother Ganga river. Sometimes in Gurbani, Gurmukh refers to Guru Sahib himself.
How can a Gurmukh be doing Hindu puja?
Second name is Kaur, meaning a princess of the khalsa. The last name is Khalsa. Anyone who calls themselves Khalsa MUST live as a reflection of Guru Gobind Singh ji and his rehit. Otherwise they should call themselves something else.
She can do as much Hindu puja as she li
