Did Yogi Bhajan's followers bow & touch Yogi's feet? Testimony by a person who grew-up in the Yogi Bhajan tantric / kundalini yoga cult aligns with the same experience as I had when I was a member of the 3HO cult for 30 years. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10203838323497890&set=pcb.10203838383739396&type=1&theater

The Fight For Yogi Bhajan’s Empire http://www.sikhnn.com/headlines/1455/fight-yogi-bhajan%E2%80%99s-empire

"In response to Shiva Singh's statement claiming that 'yogi' Bhajan was not teaching people to bow to him..."

You said, "He taught us to bow ONLY to the SGGS, NEVER to him."

Shiva Singh, this is a tricky half-truth bordering on a straight out lie. I grew up in the 'yogi' Bhajan 3HO cult unfortunately, and you and I both know that when he walked through a crowd of students, or even in a 3HO Gurdwara, everyone lunged to bow
to him and touch his feet. He did not EVER stop anyone from doing this,
so the habit grew and grew and ballooned into a ridiculous scene. I was
very uncomfortable with all this. I would keep standing while EVERYONE
around me dove for his feet. I would just look him in the eye as he
walked by and he gave me such hateful looks because I was not bowing to
him.

A humble gursikh would have corrected the situation and put
an end to the bowing... and certainly would not have glared angrily at
me for NOT bowing to him! He demanded worship and when he didn't get it
from me it made him enraged.

My 30 years of experience in the Yogi Bhajan 3HO kundalini yoga cult!
Did Yogi Bhajan design his Kundalini Yoga for mind control cult induction? In this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6i_gGXDDCGE I discuss how Yogi Bhajan designed his kundalini yoga to create hypnotic states in order to control minds and make his students more susceptible to induction into his cult. In my experience, the Yogi Bhajan way of smashing everyone into altered states by piling on more and more exercises, meditations and perhaps a gong meditation leaves people spacey and prone to induction into his cult. That's probably why he (Yogi Bhajan) did it and why Kundalini Yoga teachers keep on doing it. The heavy breathing (breath of fire as Yogi Bhajan called it) techniques, loud gong sounds ringing in your ears and hours of Yogi Bhajan mantra chanting, sometimes in front of his picture, put unsuspecting people into an almost trance like state, making students more susceptible to induction into the Yogi Bhajan cult. Yogi Bhajan would have us hold our arms up for hours in some "kriya" he made up. We were so exhausted after several hours that we'd believe or accept anything Yogi Bhajan said. So it is today with 3HO kundalini yoga trainers. http://www.gurmukhyoga.com/forum/index.php?id=343

Shame on 3HO for NOT acknowledging innocent kundalini yoga students raped & abused by Yogi Bhajan! http://forums.delphiforums.com/kamallarose/messages/?msg=2534.1 If you're having a problem signing into the website be sure to click on as a guest using the red button in the far bottom right of the screen

Read testimonies of Yogi Bhajan abusing & cursing his kundalini yoga students "I would lose my soul" if I left him, Bhajan would say! http://forums.delphiforums.com/kamallarose/messages/?msg=2534.1

Is this legacy of Yogi Bhajan's poison what today's Kundalini Yoga students want to be known by and associated with? The evidence points clearly that Yogi Bhajan, founder of kundalini yoga, was a fraud and routinely abused his students for power, money and sex! Bad seed produces poisonous fruit.

How can anyone follow the teachings of a beast like Bhajan who raped & abused his followers. Anyone who follows Bhajan's kundalini yoga is as bad as Bhajan when they honor his corrupted legacy by practicing Bhajan's self-styled kundalini yoga! Shame on everyone who refuses to even read or acknowledge these testimonies of innocent young people who had the unfortunate fate to be abused & even raped in some cases by Bhajan! http://forums.delphiforums.com/kamallarose/messages/?msg=2534.8

Academic study shows Yogi Bhajan's Kundalini Yoga is a fraud!

A recent academic paper has thrown new light on the origins of Yogi Bhajan's Kundalini Yoga, casting serious doubts on its supposed origins.

"As opposed to the official history of Kundalini Yoga that claims it as an ancient and secret tradition prior to Yogi Bhajan's open teaching of it, this article argues that it was a bricolage created by Yogi Bhajan himself...."
