The latest "SHOTI MAA" Tea from 3HO's Golden Temple Natural Product’s former employees, clearly shows the influence of Yogi Bhajan's tantric sex yoga sold with sexual connotations that leave little to the imagination, "In The Mood" tea, "..The currents of love and excitement run between us. Kiss me."

It is also becoming more and more obvious from the Hindu gods and goddesses used in 3HOer’s "SHOTI MAA" Tea advertising that Yogi Bhajan's disciples have consciously or unconsciously decided to position themselves as part Sikh and part Hindu. It seems to me that they just flat out don't understand just how this will wound traditional Sikh sentiments as the Sikhs of Punjabi descent find out that Yogi Bhajan's 3HOers are doing this. Maybe they just don't care.

The two brands of tea are owned by Sat Nam Rasayan Foundation Stichting of Amsterdam.

(A Stichting is a Dutch term -- close to a nonprofit or foundation.) It looks like the company wants to get shelf space in the United States.

And here is Mr. Sat Nam Rasayan Gurudev Singh who is pictured above sitting at the table with a brown vest over his white robes;

Hari Tea is a brand that's been run by 3HOers in Europe for years. The Shoti Maa Tea is recent and the Sat Nam Rasayan name is connected to it through their registration in The Netherlands. This is separate from Yogi Tea.

The strange entry of the Sat Nam Rasayan name into the tea feud is a new one. Hari Tea and Shoti Maa tea are available online through Spirit Voyage. They're waiting in the wings to get shelf space here when Yogi Tea is no more. Connecting them to Gurujot aka Robert Alvin Taylor's criminal history won't make that any easier.

Guru Dev Singh made up the Sat Nam Raysayan hustle years ago. It's his own gig, run mostly out of Europe, but he shows up in California regularly. He's a Mexican with a crazy bio -- nothing unique about that on Planet Bhajan. But when you couple him with Gurujot Singh Khalsa -- 3HO's premier crook -- you get a blend that accomplished tea masters could market under the name "Criminally Insane."

The address given for Spirit Voyage's tea biz is listed as 15806 Woodgrove Rd., Purcellville, VA.

That's also the address for Worldbridge International ("Suite 200"), which as you know, is the business run by Gurujot Singh Khalsa -- "The Man Who Changed India."

ELECTRIC GANESH: GuruGanesha Singh Plugs In: Why does Snatam Kaur's guitarist, have a Yogi Bhajan given name that is dedicated to the Hindu elephant god ganesh?

ELECTRIC GANESH:
World Devotional Guitarist and Pioneer
GuruGanesha Singh Plugs In

"...the roots of the GuruGanesha Band go back to the late ‘60s and early ‘70s—back before GuruGanesha was even called GuruGanesha. He was the lead guitarist in an up-and-coming rock band named Cat’s Cradle. But in 1973, the young guitarist left rock and roll behind to walk the spiritual path, embracing the Sikh faith and practice of Kundalini Yoga. It was a hard choice. But his spiritual guide, the world-renowned Kundalini Yoga master Yogi Bhajan, told the young man, “Whatever you leave behind to walk this path will re-manifest later, in a higher form.”

Worshiping of Hindu gods is simply NOT "embracing the Sikh faith"! Please write these 3HOers at SikhNet.com and explain to them how the Sikh Reht forbids idolatry. Sikhs have faith in one God and are devoted only to the Siri Guru Granth Sahib where we find all our guidance and support.

This morning I was shocked to see that Yogi Bhajan's Sikh Dharma was promoting a "Ganesha Kriya" for prosperity as per Hindu beliefs!

Please write these Yogi Bhajan followers at SikhNet.com and explain that Sikhs follow only the Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and do NOT perform pujas and "kriyas" to the Hindu elephant god ganesha!

THE KHALSA
Inspired by devotion, And awake to His Light, Singing perpetually, The Name of the Lord Absorbed in His splendor, Absorbed in His love; Even in error Never believing In fasts and tombs, Temples and idols, Or anything but The devotion to the One: Caring not even for Compassion or charity If God's thought be not in them; Caring not for penances, Nor for bathings, In the holy places. Discarding all yoga practices: Such a Child of Light, Such a paragon, Such a complete Man, Fully enlightened In heart and soul, To be the pure, the Khalsa Is worthily deemed.

Dr. Trilochan Singh in his 1977 book "Sikhism and Tantric Yoga" reveals the truth about Yogi Bhajan and his Shakti tantric cult!(Link to entire book)[/link]
"The book Sikhism And Tantric Yoga is available at: www.gurmukhyoga.com.This 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."

Sikhnet Sikh & Yogi Bhajan's "right hand man," Hari Jiwan Singh Khalsa declares in the newspaper article "IDOL TALK";

“If the idol stands for a virtue... I have no problem putting that anywhere.”

http://sfreporter.com/santafe/article-5718-idol-talk.html#commAjax

Idolatry is forbidden in Sikhism....why does a golden statue of an idol adorn the entranceway to the 3HO Gurdwara in Espanola? This is a Hindu practise.
A cardinal principal of Sikhism is that God does not incarnate on Earth, does not have any form and is not anthropomorphic. Sikhism completely disavows that God has incarnated on Earth and assumed human form. Consequently according to Sikhism statue representations of God or other divines are false. To assert that God is anthropomorphic and that God can be represented in a statue is contrary to Sikhism and is a heretical fable. Therefore by displaying this statue of a yogi in front of a Sikh Gurdwara 3ho Sikhs are committing a sacrilegious act against the cardinal pillar of Sikhism.
Secondly, Sikhism completely disavows the utility of yogas, fasts, pilgrimages, rituals and all other types of mystification manufactured by overly pious monkeys. These acts are a poisonous salve for superstitious sheep who believe that the formula of ritual will lead to salvation. Rituals and idols satisfy the carnal senses and do nothing more. Rituals and idols are metaphysical carnology. It is hogwash. So all of these statues that Yogi Bhajan installed around 3ho Gurdwaras is an obscenity according to Sikhism.
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. You can also see (to the left side in the above photo) under the white arches which serves as the entrance to the Gurdwara, the statue of a golden yogi.
The following is taken from: The Sikh Times http://sikhtimes.com/news_062905a.html
Hanuman Singh
[image]
Sat Hanuman Singh Khalsa (see picture above), Millis gurdwara's mukhia jathedar (chief official), was the primary organizational force behind the event.
Hanuman, a Vietnam War veteran, whose forceful personality is true to his former career in sales, is a huge Boston Red Sox fan. He attributes the Sox's baseball 'World Series' title run and victory on October 27, 2004, after a long drought of eighty-six years, to a lifting of all curses following Yogi Bhajan's demise on October 7, 2004.
During the proceedings at the Millis gurdwara, Hanuman read out the following poem, authored by Yogi Bhajan, originally published in the Sikh Dharma mouthpiece Beads of Truth (Summer 1983, Bead #10, Volume II). Hanuman's reading of the original in English was followed by a Punjabi translation, read by a Punjabi Sikh.
God's Incarnation
Baba Nanak is the Supreme Lord's Avatar
Manifestation of the Unmanifest Creator
His first son, Baba Siri Chand, is Shiva's incarnation
From all danger one can be saved by making unto him a salutation
Manifestation of Vishnu, was Lakhsmi Chand, his second son
For carrying on the family line, he was the chosen one
Listening to the Guru's mantra with deep concentration
Your household may be blessed with wealth, prosperity, peace, and in this very lifetime, with liberation
Angad, the Second Nanak, is God's very limb; Amar Das, the Third, is the imperishable spirit of Him
Acknowledged as the King of Raj Yog, is Ram Das, the Fourth in the line
Unto whosoever offers his prayer at the Raj Yoga Throne
Is granted an end to the round of 8.4 million lifetimes, and in the Creator Lord he finds his true home
The light of Nanak through Guru Gobind, in the Granth has been fused
By reading, singing or listening to its words, with the power of God you're imbued
One about whom it's a blessing just to hear, when telling the story of such a Guru
You'll experience the Unheard Sound, the Divine Kundalini
Then, Oh Yogi, God will be a companion to you

Sri Chand
The reference to Guru Nanak as 'the Supreme Lord's Avatar' or 'God's Incarnation' seems in utter violation of basic Sikh doctrine. Japji, widely regarded as the gist of the Guru Granth and authored by Guru Nanak himself, points out that God is 'never incarnated.' Paradoxically, the poem acknowledges as much via its reference to 'the Unmanifest Creator.'
This poem, with flattering references to the dissident Sri Chand, wasn't all one observed at Millis that could be construed as offensive to Sikh sensibilities. At one point, Hanuman proudly showed off the recently acquired near-life-size statue of Sri Chand (see picture above), founder of the Udasi order characterized by renunciation and asceticism, both of which were roundly criticized by Sikhism's founder, Guru Nanak. Hanuman bowed to the statue, touching his forehead to its base. Punjabi Sikhs strictly oppose idol worship and bow only to the Guru Granth, not even to images of their Gurus. Furthermore, Sri Chand was not one of the ten Sikh Gurus. Sri Chand had dissented from mainstream Sikhism to form his own sect when his father, Guru Nanak, chose Guru Angad as his successor.

The Sikh Gurus did not wish images of them because they didn't wish to be worshiped as bodies/idols. They certainly could have had statues and portraits made of them but they refused. As per the SRM, would much rather there be no pictures (or idols) depicting the Sikh Gurus (or anyone else) in the Darbar of the Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji --- the focus should be purely on Gurbani, whether that be through Kirtan or discussion (or even Path).

Response to Yogi Bhajan ‎3HOer's Comment,
"You cannot blame 21st century Hindus for something that happened in the 18th century."
In Asa Di Var, Guru Nanak Sahib says:
Murakay naal naa lujhiay - Never argue with a fool.
I don't even know where to start here. It's not even about what Hindus did or did not do in the 18th century. It's about the teachings of Guru Nanak Sahib and his successors that are enshrined as our Guru, SGGS. Also Guru Gobind Singh ji's specific directions.
Let me cut to the chase here. Sikhs MUST live according to Gurmat. Here's part of the Wikipedia definition, since Gurmat is not a commonly used 3HO word (or, at least, it wasn't when I was around):
"Gurmat (gur-mat, mat, Sanskrit mati, i.e. counsel or tenets of the Guru, more specifically the religious principles laid down by the Guru) is a term which may in its essential sense be taken to be synonymous with Sikhism itself. It literally means to "have your face towards the guru". It covers doctrinal, prescriptive and directional aspects of Sikh faith and praxis. Besides the basic theological structure, doctrine and tenets derived from the teachings of Guru Nanak and his nine successors, it refers to the whole Sikh way of life both in its individual and social expressions evolved over the centuries. Guidance received by Sikhs in their day-to-day affairs from institutions established by the Gurus and by the community nurtured upon their teachings will also fall within the frame of gurmat. In any exigency, the decision to be taken by the followers must conform to gurmat in its ideological and/or conventional assumptions.
The 'guru' in gur-mat means the Ten Gurus of the Sikh faith as well as gur-bani, i.e. their inspired utterances recorded in the Guru Granth Sahib. The instruction (mat) of the Guru implies the teaching imparted through this holy word, and the example set by the Ten Gurus in person. Direction derived from these sources is a Sikh's ultimate norm in shaping the course of his life, both in its sacred and secular aspects. The spiritual path he is called upon to pursue should be oriented towards obtaining release, i.e. freedom from the dread bondage of repeated births and deaths, and standards of religious and personal conduct he must conform to in order to relate to his community and to society as a whole are all collectively subsumed in the concept of gurmat."
Everybody got that? I think it is adamantly clear.
Guess what? Hindu rituals are against Gurmat. Participating in Hindu ceremonies is against Gurmat. Chanting Hindu mantras is against Gurmat. Putting pictures and murtian (statues) of Hindu Gods and Goddesses in Gurdwaras and on supposed Sikh websites is against Gurmat. Tantric practices are against Gurmat.
Try to understand people. There are very powerful forces in India that want to see Sikhi subsumed back into Hinduism. They LOVE to see gora (3HO) Sikhs doing all this Hindu stuff. It helps make their case.
The Punjabis who find out about these things are HORRIFIED.
But Yogi Bhajan's followers go blithely on doing their quasi Sikh/Hindu things without seeming to give a damn other than saying nonsense like: "You cannot blame 21st century Hindus for something that happened in the 18th century." or "don't be negative ji" or "we are all one".
Well, we are all one on a spiritual level. But try saying that to the survivors of the Sikh massacres of 1984. The women who were raped. The wives who saw their husbands slaughtered. The children who were orphaned. See what they have to say in response. These massacres were done exclusively by Hindus and it was not the 18th century.

Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa a prominent student of Yogi Bhajan and admired by 3HO(as depicted in this Sikhnet article)is shown above doing a Hindu Puja and teaching yoga at the Parmarth Ashram in Rishikesh.
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. [/link]

A statue of Shiva(in the photo to the right) stands in front of Gurmukh while she does Puja at Parmarth Ashram on the Ganga river.
The picture above shows Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa performing religious rituals at a Hindu Temple in Rishikish, India. Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa is a very powerful and senior scion of the White Sikh Yogi Bhajan Cult. In this picture you can see her wearing the Sikh Turban which happens to be Guru Gobind Singh’s gift to his Sikhs. Furthermore, the turban is emblazoned with the warrior insignia of the Knights Of The Khalsa. She is performing a Hindu religious ritual called an Aarti. Aarti is a fundamental religious rite of the Hindu Religion. In an Aarti, a person stands before a statue of a god or goddess and waves a fire burning lamp or a tray with a bunch of candles before the stone idol. It is obeascience to an idol. Let me be perfectly clear, Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa is performing idol worship. Idol worship is an act which is strictly forbidden by Sikhism.
" Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, internationally renowned Kundalini Yoga teacher came for several days and is a regular favorite asset to Parmarth’s International Yoga Festivals and regularly brings large groups of yoga students from USA. This time she was here for personal sadhana."
[image]
Now what is Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa doing hip hopping in a Hindu Temple? True Sikhs do not enter the places of worship of other religions. This is an empirical and historically verifiable fact. The Knights of the Khalsa respect all religions but do not worship in the religious ceremonies of others.

LETTERS IN THE EDITOR’S MAILBAG: Friday’s paper
Appeared in print: Friday, May 28, 2010

"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.

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","SikhNet.com","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.

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.

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...

"Tantric doctrines involving sex-poses or physical contact poses are extremely repulsive to Sikhism.

The Sikh Gurus ask the Sikhs to shun the very presence and association of Shakti-Cult Tantrics." Dr. Trilochan Singh "Sikhism and Tantric Yoga"

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.

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 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 sikhnet.com, 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".

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 SikhSangat.com 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 (http://satguruji.blogspot.com/), 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.
[image]

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."
