Akal Takhat appoints Yogi Bhajan's son in-law, Satpal Singh as convener of US committee for Sikhs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBFLyhMUwZw
I just wrote "Bhai Sahib Satpal Singh Khalsa" the following letter at his fb page. https://www.facebook.com/bhaisahibsatpal.singh.1?fref=ts
All Sikhs should write Satpal Singh as well to encourage him to advise the Akal Takhat to tackle this important issue of Yogi Bhajan's 3HO Americans diluting Sikhi with Hindu practices like idol worship and tantric yoga.
Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh!
Dear Satpal Singh.
I noticed on SikhNet you have been appointed to be the convener of the new US committee for the Akal Takhat. I would like to know if you are serious about discussing the many problems in 3HO concerning their un Sikh like practices. If you haven't noticed, my videos on this subject have received support from thousands of concerned Gursikhs around the world. Let's work together to resolve these differences. Will you help mediate this situation for the good of the Khalsa Panth?

Here is an example of one video I made which has received about 13,000 views, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKLNcRqWnKU&list=TL2rcdExaRRuU
The video shows among other things, the death spot (grave) of Yogi Bhajan where
3HOers are bowing. This un Sikh like practice is done not more than 500 yards from SikhNet ! Please write these Yogi Bhajan tantric / kundalini yoga followers & direct them to Sikh Reht: Sikhs only bow to the Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji & a Sikh never worships at the graves of the dead or bows to idols!
In the video, Yogi Bhajan followers are seen worshiping, and prostrating themselves to the building where Yogi Bhajan died & bowing to a golden idol in Espanola New Mexico not more than 500 yards from the SikhNet offices and headquarters!
The Sikh code of conduct specifically states that "Superstitions and rituals should not be observed or followed, including pilgrimages, fasting and ritual purification; circumcision; idols, grave worship...."
"This is not the way to meet the Supreme One and Only. I have performed these rituals so many times. Finally I collapsed, exhausted, at the door of my Creator and I prayed to the Beloved One, 'Please, grant me a discerning intellect'"."

Dr. Trilochan Singh made this very same conclusion about Yogi Bhajan, in 1977. I quote from the book "Sikhism and Tantric Yoga": Yogi Bhajan, "...honestly replied that Tantra (White as he calls it) is his basic faith while Sikhism is only an off-shoot of his Tantric system. Dr. Trilochan Singh replies, "The reason he (Yogi Bhajan) gave was that he believed Sikhism has no meditation techniques. I (Dr. Trilochan Singh) told him (Yogi Bhajan) that Sikhism has more specific, fruitful, and spiritually exalting techniques of meditation, but his (Yogi Bhajan) misfortune is that he has never studied Siri Guru Granth Sahib, and never cared to live according to Sikh Discipline."
Dr. Trilochan Singh goes on to say, "from the point of view of Sikh philosophy and theology I would like to state that 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 would inevitably lead to mental and physical debauchery of those who take his brand of Sikhism contaminated by crazy sex-energizing asanas seriously. Every Sikh having even rudimentary knowledge of Sikhism, and even every non-Sikh scholar of Sikhism, would agree with me that Sikhs and Sikhism in America will go down the drain if these things continue to be practiced secretly or openly in the name of Guru Ram Das, and with sacred Sikh mantras as instruments of this type of Tantric Yoga which is extremely repulsive to Sikhism."
